Our Internal Power

Our Internal Power, Ur Internal Power

Philip Abang. Our Internal Power, Ur Internal Power

I created this artwork believing that our fortitude, our innate power to overcome adversity, fear or worry is tremendous. The power we poses within us is also limitless. If such power is harnessed and channeled the right way, just imagine the outcome… tremendous, right?!!

To quote a dear friend Tambu Geeray, “the potential we have didn’t fall from trees”.

‘Our’ or ‘Ur’ internal Power didn’t fall from trees and it is awesome what ‘we’ or ‘you’ can achieve if a little bit of belief is added to that phrase.

Believe in Ur internal Power.

The power of purpose, resilience, will power and optimism.

I will highly recommend a TED talk that blew me away one morning. I often wonder how people deal with grief, daunting circumstances, life’s unscripted manual. I failed miserably when dealing with grief, especially losing a young one so close to the heart some years back. I remember feeling like the ground should open its mouth and gulp down my entire being, living no hair strand behind. Sad that there isn’t a manual for grief. This is a topic for another day.

The talk was about Mark Pollock who was the first blind person to race the South Pole and human rights lawyer Simone George. Together they “explore the tension between acceptance and hope in times of grief. The compelling and unforgettable talk is mind-blowing. I heard the quote above from the talk.

It is worth watching this gripping talk  ‘A love letter to realism in a time of grief’ as they share the ordeals of life’s toughest challenge about grief and “groundbreaking work they’re undertaking to cure paralysis”.
