Why Healing Is Crucial

It is all natural to grieve after the loss of a beloved. There is nothing wrong in it. In fact, it is good to let our inner feelings out through tears, sobs and words rather than suffering internally with built-up emotions.

Weeping relieves us without a doubt and also it helps us realize that we could only get a short-term relief from the weeps.

The purpose of the Healing Monastery is to provide you with an enduring relief from the distress you are undergoing at the moment. First of all, let’s establish why we should recover from an intense grief as soon as possibleHere is why I think we should heal sooner than later.

  • Prolonged distress could make us physically sick.
  • Distress could lead to depression which could have devastating consequences.
  • We need to recover and fulfil our duties towards our existing beloved ones (who are also worried about us) and the world.
  • Our parents, teachers, family, friends and the society too have tirelessly contributed to nurture us. So, we cannot stubbornly ruin such carefully-built-up lives of ours.
  • Our lost dearest would never approve of us having surrendered to the grief if they could see us.
  • Only a recovering mind could identify many avenues of commemorating our late beloved and keeping them closer to us forever.

Ukrainian Refugee Mental Health Crisis

Ukrainian refugees’ mental health crisis is more serious than their material deprivation. It will take years for them to physically revive, and yet decades and generations for their minds to recover from the trauma of war. If there is at least hope for a healthy nation and a prosperous country one day in future, this large scale impact on people’s mental health should not be ignored, underrated, or postponed to address later.

Healing Power of Compassion

The compassion you have for others has a magical power to heal your own aching heart at a time of bereavement. Therefore, one of the best medicines for your grief is listening to other grievers. This simple act relieves you because there is no room in you for self-pity when your mind is engulfed by thoughts of others, but not you or anything that is yours. Unlike self-pity, compassion is outbound, meaning it springs from your core and flows outwards. The ultimate result is that you loosen up the tightness in your chest.

Life Satisfaction In Sri Lanka

Life satisfaction comes with the work satisfaction, which explains how passionate we are about our career. Choosing the wrong job is a common mistake that we Sri Lankans do. As a result, it is not only that the individuals are unsatisfied, but also the whole workforce of the country turns ineffective. Both the existing education system and our social value system contribute to our youth making wrong decisions about their future carrier. In contrast to Sri Lanka, people in other countries like UK where I live choose what they love and are best at for their job and obviously this is one main reason why they are a more satisfied nation than us.

Women’s Role in Sri Lanka

Women’s role in a country is an indicator of its social, economic and political standing and the stability. You can see how true this is by observing the differences of the women’s role in the society between Sri Lanka and other countries. I have noticed that women in the UK are more confident and forward in the society compared to women in Sri Lanka. Most notably, in this society, their opinions never go wasted. Without any doubt, other countries have gained a quite lot by taking women’s ideas into account and putting them to good use. It is time now to redefine the women’s role in Sri Lanka in order to bring about a real system makeover that is going to make history.
