Ngayon ay paguusapan natin ang apathy…
Ano ang Apathy?
- Loss of desire
- Lack of care
- Lack of interest
- Lack of motivation
In short, LAMPAKE or WAPAKELS
Hindi nagpapakita ng interest, NR or no reaction.
Have you ever met apathetic people?
Apathetic people are people who are cold. Cold enough to be involved, cold enough to express, and cold enough to share.
Why do we become apathetic?
⁃ Sa work, maaaring burned out ka na. Or di ka mo na makita ang purpose mo. Or bored na bored ka na.
⁃ Sa relasyon, maaaring nagbago na ang damdamin mo, nanlamig ka na. Meron ka nang iba? (Bad yun)
⁃ Sa buhay, dahil marami kang karanasang hindi maganda sa pakikupagkapwa tao. Inabuso ang kabaitan mo, sinaktan ka at iba pa.
⁃ Sa ispirituwal na aspeto, dahil pakiramdam mo hindi naman dinidinig ang panalangin mo. Or sapat nang mananampalataya ka na at marami namang ibang willing gumawa.
Ako, I became apathetic at one point of my life kasi I wanted to protect myself from pain.
To get involved, one may develop attachment and expectation. If we create desire and interest, we are also prone for disappointment. If we care, we may be hurt by words and actions.
Even in our spiritual life, we can experience these things.
I said No too many times before, to any work that involves any ministry. I decline to FEAST sa hapagkainan na inoofer ni God sa akin because I was not interested with His offer. I was not interested because I fear that He might not Love me still afterwards. Kahit na alam kong may kaya akong itulong at ibahagi, I’d rather watch minitries crumble down, than get involved. I dont want to be involved because I’m scared not to be appreciated. I tried not to care, because I experienced rejection, abused and being misunderstood in my initiative in the past. But you see, there is no Fulfillment in being Apathetic Christian as there is no Joy in being cold and lonely man.
The more gifted we are, the more helpful and kind we should be. If we want peaceful life ahead, we create peaceful life, not avoid life itself by practicing apathy. The more we want goodness, the more we should be motivated to cultivate it within our own practice. The more we want to meet Christ-like individuals, the more involved we should be in turning every person into one.
