[1: 2,028 of 10,000] Invested On Stories

As a writer, who create a new world out of my imagination, I used to be invested on characters created by another writer. I remember watching movies and get thrown off when my own personal beliefs shattered right before my eyes. Like in the League of Their Own, why did Geena Davis let the ball roll, choosing her sister playing in the opposing team to win and her own team lose the championship?

With the new found wisdom that I already have now, I release my control to what could have been and enjoy what’s happening. I now have an appreciation that human can never get it done and all is well. With those two, a story can unfold as many different ways and directions, there’s no right or wrong, there’s only life and being a witness of it. There’s only longer or shorter, enjoying or suffering, fear or love.

[1: 1,971 of 10,000] Beautiful Words From Caroline Myss

In Aphorism on July 29, 2019 at 12:40 PM

I’ve listened to Oprah Winfrey’s interview of Caroline Myss once again because my soul is searching for meaning and I couldn’t focus on what I need to do. My mind wanders and it’s asking for food that I couldn’t understand and ain’t providing.

Caroline Myss defined Spirit as…
The part of you that is seeking meaning and purpose.
The part of you that is drawn to hope.
Not to give in to despair.
The part of you that has to believe in goodness.
The part of you that feels like hope.
The part of you that feels like grace.
Oprah Winfrey added, “It’s the light of you.”

Have no judgments of your life,
No expectations, and
Give up the need to know what happens tomorrow.
Be fully present, and
Appreciate all that’s in your life right now.

Have no judgments of your life,
No expectations, and
Give up the need to know why things happen as they do.

Caroline and Oprah, combined thoughts,
Give it your all
Give it your best
Not to be attached to the outcome
Surrender it
Let it go
To the power greater than yourself

Other beautiful words she shared:

  • If you have life, you have a purpose.
  • You are on the right path when you’re not put in a position to betray yourself.
  • Choose what will enhance your spirit and not what will drain your power.
  • Grace transforms a moment into something better.
  • A miracle is when God bends these laws for you in an intimate way.

Other prayers mentioned in the interview:

  • “Hover over me (God).” by St. Teresa of Avila
  • “Please enter where You (God) already abide.” From the book Illuminata by Marianne Williamson

In Aphorism on July 30, 2016 at 11:53 PM

Be gentle

Man can be mean in some certain chaotic circumstances…
But if there’s a choice to be gentle, then be.

We can be honest, we can be blunt…
But if we can deliver it gently, then let it be.

We are made out of love and may we have the audacity to use it.


[1: 1,659 of 10,000] Lighten Up And Find What’s Funny

In Aphorism on November 22, 2015 at 12:00 AM

Don’t take life too seriously! Lighten up and find what’s funny.

I feel better when I laugh. I feel discomfort when I’m intensed and in a fight mode. Between these two opposing emotions, I’d rather be in a comedy than in a drama.

[1: 1,491 of 10,000] The Madness of Unconsciousness

In Aphorism, Article on June 8, 2015 at 12:51 PM

The world spins in madness unless a man chooses to live in consciousness. -Yor Ryeter


I have done something I do not regret. I don’t know where the courage came from to have done it but I relied that it was the right thing to do though painful. It has two faces, telling the truth yet breaking a trust. I was convinced that I was helping to relieved an agony of the unknown to be able to cure a wound that has been deliberately neglected because of fear.

The man who committed a mistake and who I broke his trust hated me. The woman I freed from her incessant longing for truth betrayed me. Now I wonder what does this teach me when the man who hated me threat to harm me for my decision.

I learn that accusations especially when false should not affect me. It was the first time that I have understood that what a person judged others could actually be a true reflection of his own. I am being condemned and yet instead of fighting back and devising a way to get back, I surrender on my knees that he realises what’s worth fighting for.

I meddled because no honest man deserves to be treated with disrespect when there might possibly be a way to cease the piling lies. And yet a man who is jealous and in pain could still betray a friend; but is it a waste if the value of honesty was upholded?

I am sorry if I have started havoc but I am not apologetic for being truthful to the right person who needs answer. I told friends and family of my challenge and they advised that I stay away from these people, and I understand their concern, but I know in my heart that I wish them peace, courage, kindness, and may the true love within them outweigh the challenges that they face so not to succumb to being fearful, deceitful, and mad as an immediate action.

[1: 1,484 of 10,000] My Night Stars

City Lights 2

When I lay on my bed at night I could see the Dubai city lights from my window. They are golden, alive, and don’t flicker. They are my stars on Earth, on the ground, and they make me smile.

In the quietness of night, I am left alone with my centre, my silence, and my plead to God that I offer Him my worries so I may sleep in peace.

I could make stories and assumptions on what can I find in those lights but I don’t. I just enjoy their beauty that only the night can appreciate.

“Our strength are often hidden until it’s dark that we shine.”

Complaining is the easiest thing to do and the most unhelpful one.

[1: 1,317 of 10,000] The Secret of “No Regret”

In Aphorism on May 16, 2014 at 5:43 PM

The secret of “no regret” is to live responsibly and with all your best at all times.

I don’t have regrets.

I know that I have lived my life with the best of my ability.

I know that I shall live even more with not settling so as long as I breathe, I shall love, get really scared, make mistakes, learn, and achieve that longing of fulfilment.

I don’t like to just live but would always strive for a meaningful life.

I know inside my heart that I am special and so is each of us and I couldn’t put it out clearly for history to recognise but I am sure each of us will find out and most hopefully live it out.

[1: 1,266 of 10,000] Sometimes It’s Not Important To Be Perfect

In Aphorism on January 9, 2014 at 1:28 PM

Sometimes it’s not important to be perfect

but it is important

to move,

to act,

and to live in an extraordinary imperfection.
