[1: 1,093 of 10,000] I’ve Never Tried That

In Question on July 25, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Risk

Will that hurt? Will it be exciting? With it be worth it?

Should I follow the rule? What is the rule?

Will I search for it once I tried it? Will it be addictive?

Do I really want it now? Do I need it?

Have I found the match? Have I found the trusted?

Is my curiosity going to end?

Shall I comply?

[1: 1,081 of 10,000] Heart Breaking Letter

In Question on July 13, 2013 at 7:27 PM

Dear Madam:

I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.

I pray that our heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln

***

Today I finally watched “Saving Private Ryan” and the letter that was written by Abraham Lincoln was eloquently written.

I asked again “why there need to be a war” when it can just brutally kill people defending a sometime crooked definition of a real freedom? Or the ugly truth is it protects an ego for power and succeed to dominate the weak. It is sad that after all what we thought we could have learn from war, it still exists today in the modern world. Is it a great catalyst that has to exist to initiate a change?

Respect + Kindness + Love

If we knew those words and truly live them, there need not be any war.

In Question on May 22, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Can you do me a favor and one day ask me about the day I am almost turning 33?

Ask why did I lose my heart for the good dream?

Ask why didn’t I take more risk?

Ask why was I complacent?

Ask why was I so naïve?

Ask why I didn’t love myself more?

Ask why I ask so many questions and not come up with enough good reliable answers?

Ask why I let screw up creeps in?

Ask why I was scared?

Ask

In Question on May 15, 2013 at 12:00 AM

Go OnIs three decades of life isn’t enough to learn the mystery of the beautiful and chaotic breathing? Will four decades worth more than what I know now?

Will it give me a surprise that I could never imagine? Is it going to be a richer and fuller life than I could ever wish for?

Am I really in a hurry to know? Or this is it in its plane bare glory presenting itself?

How was it? Could I still be figuring it out?

Shall we decode it together?

Do I need fear to have the ultimate desire to survive?

[1: 843 of 10,000] Killing A Man

In Question on November 23, 2012 at 2:00 PM

I am still reading “The Art of War” and every time I read every strategy to kill I can’t help thinking is killing a man the answer to prevail? To win? To end evil?

Who is the evil? The man who got killed or the man who killed doesn’t make any difference?

War is about defending a nation. Is it right that someone has to do the sacrifice and get his hands sinful? Is killing for a cause a sin?

I will never take anyone his life. Sometimes, when the pain of real life is so great, that is suffering enough and ending someone his life is stopping his chance to experience suffering and seeing the light that is available at the end.

Or cut the questions – man dies anyway and it is just a matter of when and how.

[1: 603 of 10,000] How Do You Say Good Bye?

In Journal, Poem, Question on April 3, 2012 at 12:00 AM

I can’t say good bye

I won’t say those words

I will say I love you

I will say I thank you

But never the word good bye

It’s never proper

It’s never appropriate

No matter how much you say you’ll go

I will never tell you good bye

I will say I love you

And let me hear that you love me too

There is a reason for everything, so what is the reason?

When there are things happening that we can’t understand, can’t explain, that sometime even hurt, we say there is a reason, so what is the reason?

The reason can be anything good that we wanted to be. Isn’t that beautiful and magical?

Try it.

Think about the positive things and be joyful because it is the best way to live. Optimistic!

[1: 570 of 10,000] My Psychology Professor Asked “What’s the ultimate question you have in mind?”

In Question on March 4, 2012 at 12:00 AM

I only have one Psychology subject in college and I am grateful for the particular professor I got. I like her understanding with life and I guess having an active third eye expands her perception about everything around her that definitely intrigued me.

Before our course ended, there was one time that she asked the whole class, “What’s the ultimate question you have in mind?” At that time, my parents’ marriage is having trouble, I thought I don’t like the course I took, and I am worried about the future; I did have one question and it is her who I wanted to give me an answer.

She was happy that I raised my hand and stood up. I guess she was disappointed with my question but I am happy I asked and have never forgotten my question and her answer.

I asked, “Why is life so complicated?

She answered, “If you find life complicated because you made it so.”

From that moment, I believed her that life doesn’t have to be complicated. In every bits of our life, there is always a simple base for everything but most of all, it all roots from LOVE.

In Question on March 3, 2012 at 8:43 AM

I’ve been watching US TV Series for a long time now. Since Friends, Dawson’s Creek, and now Gossip Girl. I grew up in the Philippines in a sort of conservative relationship culture and I always wonder if Americans do go round in their friends circle all the time or it’s just on the show.

Let us take for example the Dawson’s Creek show. Joey loves Dawson, but hooked up with Jack and then with Pacey. Dawson hooked up with Jen and then later with Joey. According to the storyline, they are all friends! I really find that weird that they go round. Or it is just me and my conservative perception that my friend’s lover can’t be my lover.

There is one particular guy who liked me but since I know that two of my friends liked him I stopped him from courting me. There is this another man who I knew had a relationship with one of my friends and although I don’t know both of them when they were together, when he started making his move with me, I didn’t encourage it. The thing is there are so many men in this world, it’s possible that I will find a person who doesn’t have to be hooking up with my circle of friends. It is not just weird but it’s like crossing someone’s boundary.
