Now, I am not very familiar with the k-entertainment industry. In fact, until this past November, I did not even know that k-drama existed on a global platform. But because of a particular individual (who is from that industry) with whom I feel a deep connection; I have been trying to get myself more acquainted with the Korean culture, dramas and music.
Today, for some strange reason, I felt something was energetically off and made a google search about Korean entertainers committing suicide (something so very strange and atypical for me to do!!) and came across the news of this lady’s death!! I wish peace and solace to her soul. I am sure her family and fans are finding it hard to grapple with this news- I pray and hope that they find the strength and courage to assimilate this experience.
Before I could gauge people’s energies, I used to see celebrities and have a typical view of their ‘successful life’. But now, as I can sense their deeper feelings- beyond what they portray for the camera, many of those in public limelight- have such deep pain as part of their mental-makeup and un-expressed fear deeply ingrained within them, that instead of feeling appreciation or envy for the position they hold in society, many a times- I feel a sense of genuine caring and sadness (at the irony ) when I see them!!
Probably their success which makes them the object of envy, also happens to be the reason, they are not able to easily trust anyone- after all, how could they be sure that people are not approaching them for their own covert reasons!! What a challenging space to be in… where we reach a level of success in life where the very stature that we worked so hard to accomplish… seems to captivate us.
This reminds me of an art card, I had made several months ago- where I had shown a beautiful natural scenery in the background with a nice house in the mountains and a sharp barbed wire fence in the foreground with the caption saying- what protects us also has the potential to imprison us!!
It is important to be aware of people’s intensions when they approach us. It is also important to ensure that we protect our own interests… but at what point do we stop ourselves from becoming so concerned about ‘others’ that they start to dictate our behaviors! We need to ask ourself- why do we live our life from ‘outside in’ where what is going on around us tends to determine what is happening within us- instead of from ‘inside out’- where we take charge of our inner wellbeing and then act from that inner sense of centered calmness.
Every other day, we read these wall-posts on social media, stating that if you ever need to speak to someone, then feel free to reach out. But do we as individuals really pay attention to those who are around us? The most “expensive” thing that we can ever give anyone is attention, as it is time- the one aspect of life which can neither be bought nor created!! We all have a certain measure of it available to us. Surely, we can increase our availability of time with efficient use of our resources and well managed activities, but we cannot create or trade it- no matter the extent of our wealth.
My main reason to write this post is to re-bring this point to everyone’s notice. With many people couped up in their homes for very long periods of time, with media constantly bombarding us with shocking world news, with the world economy on the brink of a challenging twist… it is very much possible that many people who have typically managed to curb their fearful instincts, are now feeling a sense of apathy and hopelessness.
If you are someone who is feeling low or know of someone who may be experiencing such a situation then please, try your best to ensure that they get appropriate guidance and help. Issues like depression or mental trauma are completely ignored in many cultures across the world. Unfortunately, there is a stigma attached with it- which deters people from reaching out. But mental health and any related issues can not only have serious repercussions, but they can many a times be life-threatening. So, it is important that we stop judging and stigmatizing people’s challenges- be they physical, emotional, or mental- any such ailment should be addressed with the same level of care and support.
If someone reaches out to you- a friend, a family member, a coworker or even a complete stranger- make it a point to really look at them with genuine caring attention and smile with your heart in it. Let your smile reach your eyes! Many a times, all it takes is a genuine, heartfelt smile to deter someone and bring them back from their mental world of dreadful thoughts!!
There are so many instances where people have later confided that during their trying times, it was that one stranger on the street who looked at them with such genuine caring that they felt a renewed sense of hope and possibility.
As those who are on this journey of living a conscious and aware life, let us re-new our commitment to each other and to humanity- let us pledge to bring joy, caring and hope to not just those who reach out to us but to all in general. Let us ensure that genuine love and caring reflects in all that we say and do in our daily activities and all our interactions. May the Divine bless us to fulfill our pledge. Amen…
