[1: 2,054 of 10,000] If The Beatles Becomes Jack Malik

In Article on February 26, 2021 at 9:53 PM

I’ve watched Yesterday and there are two striking moments that I enjoyed about the story.

The premise was Jack Malik seemed to be the only person who knew about The Beatles after a freak worldwide blackout. Spoiler alert coming! A big reveal suddenly showed there are two other people who still remembered The Beatles and they’ve confronted Jack that they knew who is he copying from. He was so scared that they will get him arrested for claiming the genius of The Beatles only for them to say, “Well, we just wanted to say thank you, that’s all. We three seem to be the only ones who remember, and we can’t sing, so we just wanted to say, thanks very much. It’s just lovely to hear the songs. A world without The Beatles is a world that’s infinitely worse. Use it well.”

It was a beautiful surprise, it wasn’t accusative, but simply opening a space for appreciation by people who remember what’s true. The fame, money and influence weren’t the aim, but the embracing the pureness and be in awe of the art. I remembered in college, someone from another university copied my original poem and published it in their literary folio, and when I saw it, I just chuckled, flattered, and now I have a new appreciation that I hope someone got inspired reading the words. The world needs generosity, yes it is still right to give credit to whom it’s due, but there’s more if an art is freely shared because it’s an expression of our Soul.

The movie ends with Jack living a simple life with the love of his life and their two children. He was honest of himself that his genius isn’t about claiming the work of others but being true to who he is. I myself do love the comfortable life, I’m scared of starting over to pursue a creative career, I question if will I strongly and forever connect and co-create with my muse so the work that will be produced through me matters to awaken my fellow beings, and yet I know if I don’t live that in this lifetime then I’m depriving my Spirit to freely express its most authentic Self.

Yesterday I heard a family passed by my apartment, a father, a mother, and a child. The child was asking the parents about where are they going. The child’s voice is filled with excitement and a sense of wonder for a little person but with a whole soul. Are children that hopeful and filled with love because they just came from our source?

To maintain that purity in spirit, the adult has the responsibility to nurture them with love but trust them enough that they could eventually stand up on their own to be what they were supposed to be to serve the world better than they found it.

Children are strong in hope but they are fragile too that adult could break that, to condition them in a hostile upbringing, leading them to a bad path. Adults indeed have the responsibility to care for the young ones to lead with good example, so they can grow up as  a responsible human being.

silence

I am typing this blog at 12:25 in the early morning, my housemate is in deep slumber, and only the air conditioning unit and my tapping on keyboards make a sound in the whole Dubai apartment… and it is heavenly. I immensely delight the silence where all I could hear are the words in my head and bring them to life through my laptop screen.

It is a blessing to know when my heart is at peace, my head has its space, and act upon my creative output. It is at these moments when I dream that a masterpiece comes to life with every fibre of love and soul magnificently shining through.

Enjoy the silence, which is a luxury to a safe country. And in those moments, I find the time to also utter a prayer that this peace be experienced by beings whose solace is scarce or impossible.

I have to take care of my mind, body, and spirit.

I keep neglecting every single one of them.

24 hours in a day was made that way for a specific purpose. Day is for toiling, while night is for resting.

I deplete my energy up to the last bit but fails to fully recharge.

Oh peace, please come to me. My worries do not leave me and it leaves me missing good sleep.

I love having a perfect amount of rest at night because I expect myself to be healthy, smart on my decision making, and alert in completing task with gladness.

I have another night to practice and build the right habit.

Many HatsI am hitting rock bottom to the extent of feeling depressed and wanting to die now. I am seeking the answer of why am I really here beside the fact that God loves me. I am losing the will to survive and have been comfortable to be a mediocre and not pursue what I was truly meant to do for the rest of my life, to live the gift I was bestowed with, my calling. I put on different masks, hats, or roles that it overwhelmed me to do the things that grind me to bits, delivering without the consequence of dying in some time. I have no enthusiasm and it is frustrating and making me defensive and grumpy.

I couldn’t complain but I could leave and live what will bring my heart in a present being and be loving filled with true joy. I will start to make my plan towards my calling because if I don’t do it I could just take a knife and take my life because there is nothing worst that being in so much despair and sobbing.

My calling is nudging me now. I have asked the question why am I here and now it is pushing me to answer it, ACT on it. I need to be ready to face it with a lot of courage and conquer my fears. I am afraid that when I go on writing with the best selling book on a way that I do not know how, I will starve but the universe is conspiring to lead me to it beautifully. Paulo Coelho said, “If you don’t fear the unknown, the unknown will be kind to you.” And guess what, God was never tired to love and grace me that He leads me to watch this video that answered so many of my doubts, an interview of Oprah Winfrey with an amazing soul Elizabeth Gilbert. Watch it as it may speak to you as it does to me – http://www.oprah.com/own-super-soul-sunday/Full-Episode-Elizabeth-Gilbert-Part-1-Video.

I got to keep on writing now and the spark in my heart just got perked up and lusciously excited.
