what is god for you?
mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
ks. i was raised attending church every sunday until i was 16, so in the past i would naturally associate the word and idea of god with religion. but with time i discovered my own meaning, and today i associate god less with religion and more with humanity.
mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
ks. i believe in a healthy balance between the two concepts.
mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
ks. love is magic. love is life. love is learning.
i like to remind myself from time to time that 'love is patient, love is kind. it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. it does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. love never fails.' - corinthians
mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
ks. i would say that empathy, emotional understanding, consideration and communication are wonderfully healthy ingredients helping to encourage love to blossom and endure over time.... truthfully though, this question is one of life's great mysteries i do hope to solve one day.
mig. what have you learned about life so far?
ks. i have learned that life is extremely precious. i have learned that not all advice is good advice, but it is important to listen all the same. i have learned that my family is made up of individuals who deserve to be valued as individuals, and not taken for granted as siblings and parents. i have learned that my mind is my most powerful ally, and when treated kindly it can help me through almost anything. i have learned we are much more resilient than we realise, and loving oneself is not only just 'ok', but imperative to leading a balanced lifestyle.
above all, i have learned that all relationships are precious blessings, and they should be nurtured and appreciated daily, if possible.
mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
ks. inspirational. humanity today is made up of some incredibly giving and positive souls who make the world a brighter and better place, everyday.
