It’s Time To Give Back.

When you meet somebody in need, put yourself in that person’s shoes.
Can you feel the distress that he is going through?
You should – because somebody helped you in the past.

That’s why if you search deep in your heart, you would feel that you’ve “met” the person before.

It might not be the person’s fault for being in that position. That person could very well be you.

Just as you hope somebody would help you when you’re in need, you should help that person who’s in need.
It may not be possible to help everybody in the world.
At that very moment, you can help that person. You can help one more person.

You can stretch out your hands to lift somebody up and out of the pits of life.
It’s both your way of giving back and paying it forward.
Perhaps, that’s why you have what you have today. They are gifts to you so that you can share them with others.

These gifts were given to you to help you and your loved ones to live life.

At the same time, you can use them to bless others and by doing that, you can live a happier and more fulfilled life.

You are wired to do well with your life in order to make something good out it.
When you do good and do it well, the positive feeling that you will enjoy is something that you cannot buy with any amount of money in the world.

Some of the greatest wealth-creation gurus believe that giving back is a basic criteria for achieving success.
If you don’t give, you will not leave room for greater blessings to flow into your life.

All great religions teach you that you need to do good to others.
It’s a way of life and a universally-accepted principle if you want to enjoy meaning, purpose, and fulfillment.

Our Creator designed you to love and care for others. It’s a natural trait and you know and can feel it in your heart.
Giving back is a vital part of your spirit. It’s an integral part of your being.
When you deny it, you deny your God-given potential and talent. You gut the soul out from within you.
That’s why I have always said that the worst disease is not to have a heart for people and the environment.

In this regard, we may need to have a good “heart transplant” every now and then.
We may need to renew and strengthen our heart to give back and do good.

There are many lives and things around us that are falling apart.
If we don’t do our part to fix them, they may come back to haunt and affect us.

All of us can do our part to make our world a better home.

Every person matters.

Every part counts.

Call me an idealist if you like, I believe if you and I live with love, our future generation will point to us and say,

“That’s the generation that finally got their act of love together.

“They eradicated poverty, brought about world peace, and made our world a better home for all of us.”

Will you be one of the Enlightened Humans?

Will you join me in the Revolution of Love?


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.

They are also meant to motivate those who are struggling in life and help them find handlers to overcome their conflicts and challenges. It is my ardent hope that we will form networks and alliances of like-minded people who will put to right many of the wrongs in our midst. Together, we will leverage on each other's resources and create a synergistic impact in making our world a better home. These articles are written as part of regular reflection about the vicissitudes of life. They are at best work in progress and at worst, grumblings, grouses, and gripings of a finite old man. I have deliberately decided NOT to delete many of the articles and pointers that I may not agree with or are outrightly wrong. This is to keep a record of how my personal ideas, beliefs, and values have evolved over time. In addition, I hope to encourage readers by letting them know that I also make mistakes and am struggling with many of the complexity and complication in life. As long as we hang on to hope and work on finding a solution, there will be light at the end of whatever tunnel we are in. I do not pretend to know everything or for that matter, anything of substance. In fact, the more I study, learn, and think about the vast wisdom and knowledge out there, the more I realised how little I know about life and the ways of life. Hence, I have always ended my article by asking readers to continue to teach me. For I, too, am a sojourner in the exploration of truth and the adventure of finding meaning, purpose, and significance for my existence. I am proud of and make no apology for being a Christian, albeit not the most exemplary one. I believe our Creator can lead and guide us to be the best that we can ever be. I bear full responsibility for the shortcoming and error in my life, including my words. The fault is entirely mine and not due to anyone else. Readers have and can exercise the power of choice. They can discard what will not work for them and adopt those that can propel them further and faster in the pursuit of better performance, outcomes, and fulfillment. If I have disappointed or hurt you in any way, form, or manner, I would like to apologise to you. Please do not hold them against me or whoever or whatever is related to me. There are much to pray about, learn, and do. And I'll work on them with a sense of urgency. I hold on to the belief that 'Anything worth doing is worth doing with passion and excellence'. I'll endeavour to live by it. Life is short. There's no dress rehearsal and neither can we turn back the clock to change the drama of life. Therefore, by the grace and power of our Creator, let's live a full life and live it to the fullest. May God bless you abundantly on the journey of life. Your online servant, Patrick Liew I hope this message will find a place in your heart. By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
