I’m not perfect. I am just a pilgrim in this world too. I don’t really know how far I would go. I don’t also know that I would reach the destinations that I assumed in my head — if they really exist. But maybe they do. You just have to believe it exists. And now, they do. And maybe God exists because we believe He exists. I believe I am a pilgrim of this world and that was how I set up my foot on a journey no one ever did – because that journey existed in my mind and God planted the journey inside me. The journey is intended for me to tread its path – like how your journey could only be intended for you to take yours. A journey is every people’s purpose. Setting up on a solitary journey, what have we got back from the thieves and robbers of life? Our souls.
And when you tread the path to your journey, please remember that I, too, experienced delays, inconveniences , sufferings and pains. I, too, experienced unanswered prayer, a lot of disappointments, confusions, indecision, filthy and awkward and humiliating things, stupid and reckless mistakes; I too, experienced betrayal, indifference, apathy, degradation and unfair treatment by other people. I too, experienced being naked and being nothing. Please remember that I too, am fragile and helpless. I, too, am struggling and clueless.
Up to now I still don’t know the truth behind everything — behind my every actions, motives, thoughts, wishes, sufferings, traumas; behind every other people’s minds; behind every social issues, every disasters, every problems to every solutions and every solutions to every problems. I still don’t even know how I am gonna survive this HELL WEEK. But how I wish I would. I still don’t know everything because life is uncertain. And life is supposed to be this way. And I guess, we are all gonna be okay.
I still don’t know everything – because I’m not a healer, a saint, a preacher, a teacher, a priest, a nun. You see, I’m not even one of those things, what more of a superhero? I am just girl embarking on a journey like everyone else’s . It’s invisible. But I feel I’m in the middle or maybe beginning. One person asked advice from me and from then on I knew what would be the content of the next pages in my travel book. Somehow I can see a pathway through the dark caves – it’s the pathway of uplifting people. Should I be a healer? a saint? a preacher? a teacher? a priest? or a nun to uplift people? No. It is just proclaiming and declaring that I, too, am human like them.
And it’s okay. And it’s just one hard lesson that we need to learn throughout over and over again. So I think I’m done helping myself, but I will keep on moving, by helping and listening to them, and by learning lessons from them too, because even though we have separate roads to take; I, too, am a pilgrim, a girl and, especially a human – who is always here.
