From earth, on existence I

What do you live for? What connects you to life as you start your day each morning? Do you have a dream?

Pandemic pushed the world to isolation, social distance and lockdown in homes. This period, in which we have frozen our social relations and restricted our mobility, had individual and social effects. Our perception of space and time has changed. Our questions and problems about the universe, nature and existence have diversified or deepened. Perhaps it is time to ask questions to life like why and how right after the days when the reality of death shook the world.

In order to get answers with traces of different beliefs, different cultures and social structures, we asked our friends from different parts of the world to these questions: what do you live for? What connects you to life as you start your day each morning? Do you have a dream? Do you think the pandemic affected the answers to these questions and your perspective on life?

We will share the thoughts of a friend from a different part of the world with you every week. The first message is from a remote island country in Asia:


What do you live for?

I think this is a difficult question to answer. Philosophical question
For me, life is not only in this world, there is another life ….
Life is a gift from God. So we are grateful and live this life

We must take a role in this life.
A role that has a positive impact on society, the country, and humanity.
Positive contributions that are aligned with our respective roles …
If you are a student, be a good student
If you are a politician, be a good politician
If you are an editor, be an objective editor
Just kidding…

What connects you to life when you start your day every morning?

for me personally…
serving God, worshiping…
every day is different…
I just want to take this life seriously because there is still another life
life after death…
So, I’m always optimistic about doing activities
make The plan what I want to achieve for a better life …

Do you have a dream?

You ask me what I dreamed of?
I just want to be a sweet memory for you

Do you think a pandemic influences the answers to these questions and your perspective on life ?

Naturally, we are now at an unpleasant time…
Bad conditions for all of us…
We must be patient in facing this plague…
We have to complete government instructions, doctors in handling this epidemic
we must help each other as humans
all will pass…
Everything will be overcome and fine…
