The organised chaos

The wise man says

“One becomes extremist when life offers no other hope or meaning and someone offers you these in exchange for your life. That someone could be yourself and the delusions that manifest in that void.

The solution is simple – offer everyone you meet hope and meaning. Sometimes all it takes is a kind word or gesture to turn someone away from the edge. We all touch lives. Whose will you touch today?

And if you know no meaning in your life, then let this be it. Give hope. You will then find meaning.”

He was once my GP tutor back in Victoria Junior College and I suppose it’s fitting that he answers my question. And suddenly, I feel inspired to pick up the pen and write, like how I used to write as a student.

Thank you, Colin Cheong. After 10 years, you are still the teacher and I, the student.
