UNLOAD OUR POLITICAL BAGGAGE

Tapos na ang Halalan. Tapos na rin ang laban ng Cavs at Warriors. May nanalo at may natalo.

Pero bakit ang dami pa ring mga patutsadahan, tuksuhan, asaran at awayan?

Ang dami nating mga bagahe na dinadala sa pulitika. Mga bagahe na ang ugat ay ang hindi pagtanggap ng pagkatalo. Mga bagahe that leads us nowhere. Mga bagahe na sobra na.

Mabuti kung ang sitwasyon ng bansa ay healthy, kahit na may excess political baggage ay kakayahin. However, if we allow it to continue adding up, it spells trouble. Di tayo makatuon sa tamang direksyon at sa mapayapang pamumuhay.

The less political baggage there is, the freer we are, and the more likely thatwe’re going to perform our best and enjoy more out of our life.

Anu ano ang mga political bagges na ito. They include pride, motives, distractions, fear, and worries at marami pang iba. Sa pride na lang, napakaexcess na natin. Ang natalo, ayaw tanggapin. Ang nanalo, pinagyayabang pa.

Sabi nga sa isang kuwento, me isang disipulo ang nagtanong sa isang Monk kung paano ito namumuhay.

Sagot ng Monk, “When I am hungry, I eat; when I am tired, I sleep.”

The disciple is astonished at the simplicity of the answer. “Isn’t that what everyone does anyway?”

Sagot ng Monk, “No. Karamihan sa tao ay sinusubuan ang sarili ng maraming desires kapag kumakain, at nangangarap ng maraming bagay when they sleep.”

People eat and sleep with a lot of distractions.

Tapos na ang boxing kumbaga.

Let us now focus in doing our OWN RESPONSIBILITIES.

Ginagawa mo na ba ire?

Abide the law. Respect the elected government officials, whether you may have voted them or not.

Let us participate in making a progressive, peaceful and cooperative community.

Dami pa ring ngawa ng ngawa. Move on na tayo. That is life. Remove the excess political baggage.

Focus now on educating yourself. Honing your skills. Paunlarin ang sarili. Huwag ang mga pulitiko.

Do not underestimate the impact ng paglaglag sa political baggage. If we can successfully do it for one minute, we can do it for another, and yet another. Soon, we are taking away more and more of the political baggage in our lives without us knowing. Mas uunlad tayo, as persons.

Masyado nang nasugatan ang ating bansa. Masyado nang naduhagi ang ating pagkaPilipino. And that is because of political baggage.

Bashers be damned.

“I got all of this baggage with me. Don’t wana make you pay for what somebody else has done to me
I don’t know what to do. With all this baggage in me” – Mary J. Blige
