Fight For This Love...

It's definitely more than meets the eyes when it comes to love.

Recent news on 2 lovely couples catch my feeble mind attention. Cheryl Cole was busy promoting her "Fight For This Love" and her hubby, Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole was busy with some other women - Cheryl now decided to dump him. Maya Karin - the timeless Malay beauty - is faced with probable divorce from her husband. They are in fact lovable and kind people. So, where did they go wrong?
Don't they love each other enough?

Is love alone not enough?

Recently too, I was told by someone that I shouldn't let my moral standard and expectations overrule my feeling for others. Having heard that from someone that cares for me deeply, I questioned myself whether I should be less true to myself so that I could spend the rest of my life with someone? If that is the case, is it right for me to say that I should accept hypocrisy, corruption, injustice and lies so that I could be entitled to special rights and positions as a Malay in this Ibu Pertiwi for the rest of my life? Yes?

"I don't wish to be everything to everyone, but I would like to be something to someone" ~ Javan

Yes, I live my life giving some meaning to someone, especially someone who has been neglected by the system and the people. Someone left a comment in a blog saying why there are more MPs from rural constituencies compared to urban ones. Although his comment came across as one given by an educated person, his envy to these rural people for not having the same chances is worrying.

Nonetheless, I understand his grievances as we see that some MPs from these rural areas are just plain stupid, talking cock in the August House, having no respect for his people's wishes for improvement and protection on his well-padded shoulders.

"They do not love that do not show their love" ~ William Shakespeare

This is where we need to change our mindset. We don't need Robin Hood to rob the riches to feed the poors. All this nation needs is just well-informed, financially capable, reliable and honest people in the urban areas to ensure these people from rural areas, who are often being sidelined not only in development and growth but also being cheated to believe the lies they read, listen and watch, are able to fight for their rights, able to dream for a better life, able to feel contented for what they have.

"The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost" ~ G.K. Chesterton

Yes, we might lose this nation to some greedy people and too many times, not only we lose our moneys, our mother nature, our dignity and our integrity, some may lose lives of their beloved ones and some may carry on living scarred for life from missed opportunities, rutalities and injustice befallen upon them.

To know that we might lose this beautiful nation and its people (it won't be if we continue fighting, instead of loving), it is just timely that Uncle Zorro shared "A Union Waiting to Happen" today. Thank you Sir.

"A man is not where he lives, but where he loves" ~ Latin Proverb

I love this place we called home and I know you too. Despite the madness we have endured so far, we still love it because love doesn't have to have reasons and when there's love, unity and duality never conflict, says the great Rabindranath Tagore.

Please lend your hands to this beautiful project by "Extraordinary People Impacting Community" young people.

Fight for this love of our nation. Register to vote for our rights.

Yes, that's the easiest fight we all could do.

A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay -
Love isn’t love
'Til you give it away"
~ Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, "You Are Sixteen"

Hello Fi-Sha, very interesting posting.
And ha ha, love the first 2 paragraphs, re 'love'.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.

Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints in our hearts, and we are never ever the same.

Dari mana punai melayang?
Dari paya turun ke padi.
Dari mana datang sayang?
Dari mata turun hati.

Bagaimana menangkap landak?
Diasap pintunya.
Bagainmana mula berkehendak?
Dari mata turun ke hati.

You have a pleasant weekend, stay young and keep a song in your heart. Best regards, Lee.
