Life is a Garden

Candlelight Christmas @ KLPAC, Sentul, KL

Adam and Eve were once lived in Eden, a garden of eternity. Deceived by Satan, both of them were punished out of Eden to live on Earth until the day of resurrection where all of us will face our God for final judgments.

Earth is a life of evanescent to reach a divine destination. Religion is guidelines to reach this ultimate journey of each individual. The Holy Books are tenets of religions for those who believed in the existence of only one God (Allah s.w.t). We know the existence of Heaven from the word of our Almighty God in the Holy Books of Taurat, Zabur, Injil (Bible) and Quran. What were taught to us are all good things. So I still don’t understand why people become mean, evil or bad. My understandings are very simple. Do good and good things will come; do bad and bad things will come to you. That’s all that I know in my limited knowledge of this subject.

But of course, religion subjects are very sensitive to all of us Malaysian. It’s too complicated for a person like me to discuss in detail. I am more interested to talk about things in common that all of us could share. I wanted to talk about life as a garden.

Have you ever thought of how beautiful mother earth is? It’s like one huge globe of a garden. We have many terrains of different geographical condition, different climate and time zone, many types of vegetation, animals and so forth. This is what we call a garden of life or the living Eden because so many things going on in our globe and we are the keeper. We determine the sustainability of our own life like a gardener who tend to the garden to keep it going on and on, alive. Don’t you agree with me? We are all a born gardener! Amazing, isn’t it :)

Well, never mind. That’s just a thought. I am very much a gardener myself. I love plants and animals. Have a few of them animals at home and of course lots of plants to keep home beautiful and alive. Lately it was like a breath of fresh air because I had the opportunity to build a garden in someone else’s home. It’s an indoor garden some more which is so cool. And later, I got the chance to work on a bigger garden project for an organization. It’s the coolest thing that has ever happened in my life! Thanks to my dearest friend who gave me the opportunity to work with him.

A beautiful garden gives pride to the owner. Therefore lots of people would love to have a garden surrounding their living. A garden is a glimpse of your personality. How much you care for the nature and the living. If your garden is full of weeds or dying plants; that means you are a bad gardener, lazy person, not in touch with nature and its living. If it’s flowering, lush and green, it means you are a good caretaker, appreciate other types of living and love the beauty of nature and its Creator. Lots can be said for a person from his/her garden. So better think twice if you wanted to build a garden in your house. Can you take good care of it or not for people will judge you by it.

Herewith I would like to share some of the things that I’ve been doing lately with my good hearted friend, Kuma. It’s been fun and fulfilling experience for these are the things I like most in life. I hope to be able to do more in the future. May the good heart of the kind and helpful be given two folds in return.

A shared moment with the visually impared people from the Malaysian Association for the Blind (MAB). They got the chance to know how real fish feels like.

Children of tomorrow. We teach our children the value of life. So teach them good values of sharing and unity of different kind of living existed in our country.

Children do not see the difference of race and skin colour until you tell them. They just want to play and be friends with each other.
