[1: 1,895 of 10,000] A Perfect World?

In Question on September 17, 2017 at 12:47 AM

When my mind is clouded I long for a perfect world where all I could feel is peace, happiness, and without pain.

When I heard Peter Rollins spoke about having a perfect world is actually not perfect, because it is going to be boring, and a part of me protested.

Now that I feel so contented, fearlessly caged in my cocoon, then I understood that growth can only happen in suffering, only in enduring pain that I will see an actual progress, otherwise I will ask, “Is this all there is?” The answer is it is not, it can’t be; but it will require my courage to face adversity, it will require my sweat, blood, and tears to leap up, and although it is not going to be easy it will definitely be worth it.

[1: 1,894 of 10,000] Lucky You

In Article on September 16, 2017 at 11:54 PM

Is there such thing that somebody is luckier than ourselves?

Most of us learned to like what we don’t have. What we do not posses seemed exciting, coveted! It is so alluring that we even lose a piece of our dignity, sanity.

We do need to examine what is it that we wanted, needed. Discern whether the choice to be contented or the drive  to thrive is the next action to take.

The Roman philosopher Seneca said, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” It is true, it’s like having insurance, you don’t need it until you need. It takes hours of preparation of even not knowing how exactly will it be used until that moment present itself and it is for us to take it.

Are you really unlucky? Or have you not been preparing? Or didn’t you seize the moment?

 

[1: 1,893 of 10,000] What Do We Really Own?

In Poem on September 3, 2017 at 4:52 PM

What do we really own?
Is it anything material?
Is it anything intangible?

Is it the word that we speak?
Is it the deed that we do?
Is it the imagination that we think?

Even our own life is not our own
We return it
But to whom?

Realistically speaking we have basic needs
Beyond that we can choose to leave a legacy
In the end what we truly own is to live our truth

Our truth is when we do what we love
When we live in the present
When we know how to surrender

Surrendering after giving our best
After giving our all
It doesn’t matter what we own
