[1: 1,528 of 10,000] Can You See GOD?

In Journal on July 15, 2015 at 12:31 PM


Can you see GOD? Or does it really matter that you don’t see or hear HIM?

I have my spiritual journey lately and I am enriching my faith because I want to live a peaceful and a joyful life.

I once asked why can’t I see GOD just like in the Old Testament where he had spoken to men? Why do I have to use my inner belief that he exists even if I don’t see him?

Right NOW, these are the things that I LOVE:

  • GOD is so powerful that HE is everywhere and has always been in ME.
  • When I stay relax, still, and aware of the presence, I am connecting with GOD.
  • GOD loves me and everyone even if we are going to make mistakes in the future.
  • GOD sees perfection in me. Am I not made in his image and likeness?
  • GOD sees my heart that no men need to understand and acknowledge.
  • I can let go of my fears because GOD strengthens me.

There are so many miracles happening every day, the fact that I woke up, breathe, and blogging are just the start. I am rejoicing with the joys of others. I am at peace that GOD take cares of everyone. I am grateful that I am whole. I am excited with all the surprises as life unfolds.

Can you see GOD? Start by looking at the mirror, smile, and say THANK YOU.

[1: 1,503 of 10,000] Don’t Be Cruel On Yourself, Enjoy!

In Article on June 20, 2015 at 12:51 PM

Provided we have confessed our sins, we carry a clean conscience, and we mean and stopped doing harm on others… then we should stop being cruel on ourself and ENJOY LIFE!

We are not perfect, we make mistakes, but being regretful after we’ve done everything to fix our mistakes, means it is time to free ourselves for self-loathing, self-pity, and being miserable. There are things that we can never explain and instead of trying to figure out the meaning, repeatedly playing the scenes (what has and could have been) in our head, let us be brave to pull out the arrow pressing our hearts to despair.

We deserve to be happy. If we’re happy, we create a wonderful energy inside us that translates to affecting everything around us. It is a miracle worker to hum a tune, create something today out of love, and be a pleasant being around people. The only one who matters for our approval is our ever loving God who sees the content of our hearts, who is just, and gracious, oh and not to forget truly forgiving. He is the only one whose opinion matters because we couldn’t hide anything from him, he knows what we need before we even ask, and he directs our path to where we should be if we let him.

Let us recognise God almighty power blessing each of us, whoever we are. He wants us to be joyful while he take charge of our battles that we cannot endure. Smile and let us be a blessing to others NOW, and a simple good aura that we exude is a great way to start.


[1: 1,479 of 10,000] Photographs Trigger Emotions

In Article on May 27, 2015 at 12:10 PM


I was looking at old photos and it bring memories even if they are static things that don’t speak. I remember moments of joy, the only feeling I long from my personal collection.

I feel silly smiling and giggling going through each. The thoughts are so vivid that have more than what the lenses captured. It’s a web that create pictures in my head with the warm fuzzy feeling inside my whole being.

Move often, explore even more, and take more chances of the unknown. The mishaps and misadventures is the source of comedy that I was laughing about when I reminisce. Open your mind and heart to experiences because it is those surprises that make lasting joy. Don’t overthink. Plan but be adventurous enough to also let go of The Plan.

Life as I will always define it is full of wonders and I shall forever wonder! 🙂

[1: 1,426 of 10,000] Good News: Inner Peace is at the Right Side of our Brain

In Article on April 1, 2015 at 12:38 PM

I am grateful that Oprah Winfrey interviewed Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. If you haven’t got a clue about inner peace, this video is a good platform to start.

She was a brain scientist from Harvard who had a stroke and was only left with a perfectly working right hemisphere of her brain. A damaged left hemisphere is the same as not being able to talk and not knowing who she was including her own name.

Here are the beautiful things I learned from the talk.

  • Throughout the interview, she is joyful! Her smile were wide and genuine. Leaving her with only the right hemisphere of her brain to be working, it then magnificently allowed her to experience (a) deep inner peace, (b) innocence, (c) beauty, (d) purification, (e) nirvana, and (f) and in total awe with the miracle; despite drooling and acting like an infant from the outside.
  • The challenging state she was in was a realisation that people don’t have disabilities, instead they are different and Jill wondered what did they gained. It is true that her motor and language skills were impaired but she could sense the energy of a person, if they mean well or not. She couldn’t recognise her own mother but her love, patience (a lot of it), and nurturing made her try to relearn everything otherwise she would have just given up and stayed in her la la land (happy place).
  • She said that all humans have the same atoms and molecules by 99.99%, it is only the 0.01% that makes us unique. That is fascinating to know because with that 0.01% difference, we kind of forget to consider other people as our brothers and sisters; there is really no reason to battle it out to cause sufferings! We could love one another and appreciate our 0.01% uniqueness.
  • The circumstance made her lost her ego. Ego as she described are neurones with a size of a peanut at the left hemisphere that continuously chatter past pains or future fears. Letting ego control our mind, detriments us to live in the present, be calm, be at peace, and be truly loving. So we have to pay attention and stop our focus from emotional baggages, find greatness to focus on.
  • Ego, the story telling chattering, is the price we pay for language. To be able to speak, well I then is grateful that with my ego, I am able to type this post. 🙂 It gives me joy to type this post.
  • Anger only lasts for 90 seconds and after that it is flashed out from our system. The only reason it stays is because we let our ego to keep replaying the scenes that have happened in the past or may be we even make assumptions to fuel the fire.
  • I love how she never let people throw their baggage at her. When Oprah asked her if she care about what people think of her. She answered, “I don’t care what you think of me. I am as big as the universe.” and she is right, and so each one of us, we are as big as the universe, we are one with the universe.

I don’t know if you think the above ideas are foolish, since today is April Fool’s Day, but it is good that we do find inner peace so we may love everything and everyone around us. We expand ourselves and all the limitations, fears, and prides that caused us to suffer will diminish. We will live a blissful life that is full of wonders and that is a complete blessing.

Keep those fears away

And let love live

Yes cry and mourn

Though smile within

Walk with a beat

[1: 1,357 of 10,000] I Shall Defend My Joy, So Should You

Gilbert on Delight

There are people who affects our lives too much that we let them dig into our minds and totally mess up our positivity.

There are times that my spirit cannot hold on to something strong that I vanish to oblivion.

I let self pity to take charge, I give in to sulking like I got robbed of a doll, or I let frustration and anger take control.

Those were the moments that I wanted to hide, and hopefully for those brief moments I get cradled like a baby.

But I am an adult, I am expected to be strong, independent, reliable, and when I grew weak, too vulnerable, all I can do is cry and wishing the bad feeling goes away.

The ultimate goal is to be at peace and joyful. I got to learn to ACCEPT that in imperfections and failures, I could easily recognised the magnificent and worthy. Or better yet as Jack Gilbert insisted, of all those times that we need to be a stubborn adult, it is when we needed to defend our joy amidst the crazy world.

[1: 1,352 of 10,000] I Am Paving My Dream

In Journal on October 11, 2014 at 9:33 AM

Many HatsI am hitting rock bottom to the extent of feeling depressed and wanting to die now. I am seeking the answer of why am I really here beside the fact that God loves me. I am losing the will to survive and have been comfortable to be a mediocre and not pursue what I was truly meant to do for the rest of my life, to live the gift I was bestowed with, my calling. I put on different masks, hats, or roles that it overwhelmed me to do the things that grind me to bits, delivering without the consequence of dying in some time. I have no enthusiasm and it is frustrating and making me defensive and grumpy.

I couldn’t complain but I could leave and live what will bring my heart in a present being and be loving filled with true joy. I will start to make my plan towards my calling because if I don’t do it I could just take a knife and take my life because there is nothing worst that being in so much despair and sobbing.

My calling is nudging me now. I have asked the question why am I here and now it is pushing me to answer it, ACT on it. I need to be ready to face it with a lot of courage and conquer my fears. I am afraid that when I go on writing with the best selling book on a way that I do not know how, I will starve but the universe is conspiring to lead me to it beautifully. Paulo Coelho said, “If you don’t fear the unknown, the unknown will be kind to you.” And guess what, God was never tired to love and grace me that He leads me to watch this video that answered so many of my doubts, an interview of Oprah Winfrey with an amazing soul Elizabeth Gilbert. Watch it as it may speak to you as it does to me – http://www.oprah.com/own-super-soul-sunday/Full-Episode-Elizabeth-Gilbert-Part-1-Video.

I got to keep on writing now and the spark in my heart just got perked up and lusciously excited.
