[1: 1,959 of 10,000] Loving Even The Imperfection

In Journal on December 5, 2018 at 8:20 PM

I have a new appreciation for not living aiming for perfection and efficiency inspired by the podcast of Rob Bell, The RobCast, Episode 220. I always have the desire to achieve the best works, which means it has the ingredients of being perfect from conceptualization, development, and completion. I do pressure myself of always pursuing perfection.

Yet what I heard/grasp from the sermon (digitally delivered) is imperfection is as beautiful as the perfect one because it was meant to happened that way. It makes more sense when I add it with what I’ve always believed, “everything happens for a reason and nothing is ever wasted,” and this includes all the problems that are often hard and ugly including the memories that I have the habit of escaping and intentionally forgetting to avoid reliving the pain.

Everything is interconnected and one incident leads to another. Nothing is ever a mistake but a wall leads to a detour, another adventure, or to prove to oneself how much something is wanted that I’ll exert all strength that I have to break the wall. It helps that I often lean to optimism when talking about disheartening situations, but now with the new found appreciation, I found a kind of peace and surrender of what is.

[1: 1,950 of 10,000] Do You Dream of World Peace?

In Journal on September 19, 2018 at 6:00 AM

Are you dreaming of world peace? If yes, the best way to act and contribute to it is to have peace within yourself and be the peace for the ones that surround you and for whose lives you interact and touch.

Whatever you think you wish for the biggest crowd, always go back to the source, be that. I believe when we trust to be the best that we can be, we can create a movement in our circle that grows bigger and wider.

If you wish for receiving love, give love. If you wish for receiving forgiveness, give forgiveness. If you wish for receiving grace, give grace. If you wish for receiving success, serve. If you wish to complete a task, give the time and best effort.

May we wish for something nice and may we gain wisdom and have the courage to give what we wish for somebody else.

Photo taken during my visit in Stockholm last September (2017) where artist Mattias Norström bent a flag pole in front of Kulturhuset (The House of Culture).

Rules made by men can be bent because human are vulnerable, subjective and flexible. Who you know matters that can help you with just about anything.

I have a prickly habit that following the rules is a must otherwise I fear there would be chaos; and yet winners take courage to bend the rules to make a statement, to grow, or to achieve a dream.

Knowing someone is like winning a Willy Wonka ticket to get in the chocolate factory; but don’t be fooled, it is our talent that keeps us in the desired circle, takes growth to stay relevant, takes perseverance to be wealthy, and finally takes surrender to live in peace.

[1: 1,886 of 10,000] My Utmost Prayer Right Now

In Prayer on June 27, 2017 at 5:00 PM

Beloved Holy Spirit,

I call on you, humble, on my knees, praying to grant me wisdom.

The wisdom that would allow me to enter a sacred quietness to touch my soul that hears the language of a powerful discernment then I would be able to make the right choices and act on a decision out from a good intention having fierce courage because I wear my fear and resistance.

I need you so I will succeed to be a better reflection of God than I ever was yesterday. I need you so I would be at peace.

Thank you for listening to my plea. Thank you for granting your presence to be with me.

Amen.

 

 

[1: 1,864 of 10,000] “I Don’t Know” Is An Answer

Monk with Bowl by Min Wae Aung

Today, I finally understood that not knowing the answer is enough to let matters go. I finally accepted it without resistance.

I finally see these statements more clearly –

  • Let go of what you cannot control.
  • It doesn’t have to have a reason.
  • It is not my place to know if it is meant to be.
  • I don’t need to be right.

I’ve always insisted that everything must have a form. Every thing, every one including me can be judged.

No wonder The Monk Hakuin with an encounter with a villager’s baby was at peace and says is that so. Paul Schubert was right to observe that the monk had responded appropriately, to respond to the moment of what’s best. The baby needed someone to care for it regardless of how the people tainted his reputation or the accusation is untrue. What a great way to live and it will eliminate all the dramas of my ego.

I am here and I will give my best. I cannot explain nor answer the rushing questions of why it happened, why it didn’t happen, and it is okay. I am alive and I will respond with effort and love.

I don’t know and it is so.

xmas

Christmas is because of the beautiful birth of men’s savior Jesus. God so love the world that He gave His only Son to become human.

In my own way I’ve got to spent it with my sister, greeted my relatives and friends abroad via Facebook, prepared a feast, open presents, laughing out loud and tearing up watching old Christmas movies, and above all remember how blessed I am that I am purely love, unconditionally by God.

May this day be as magical as you’ve never expected to enjoy the fantastic surprises! Don’t look at the imperfections, or the plans that didn’t go well, be at peace and let it be. Enjoy the moments because it’s only the eve and the whole Christmas Day that we get to be festive and have reasons to be in touch with everyone with extra good cheers then we wait for another 364 days to pass.

I did have my boundaries and intend to have things the way I’ve wanted but for this Christmas I pray love for everyone without any walls but simply spreading good intentions.

Have a very merry Christmas! 😉

 

 

[1: 1,801 of 10,000] What Does Your Heart Tell You?

I am the most inspired that I have ever been. I’m not sure what exactly am I doing right but for sure…

  1. I have a dream of publishing my second book and I am looking forward on that.
  2. I cannot stop being grateful with all the beautiful blessings and challenges that I have on my plate.
  3. I am hopeful that whatever sufferings there are in the world, it won’t hurt my soul, but I can do something to alleviate even a bit of what’s wrong, and it can start that I be kind “anyway”.
  4. I smile and I make the effort to be positive.
  5. I let go of the things that I couldn’t control.
  6. I pour my heart in the works that I do.
  7. Be not attached with both success and failures. Still practicing this though.
  8. Love other people even if I don’t get love back.
  9. Appreciate my accomplishments and celebrate in the privacy of my solidarity.
  10. Celebrate and do what makes me at peace in the moment.

silence

I am typing this blog at 12:25 in the early morning, my housemate is in deep slumber, and only the air conditioning unit and my tapping on keyboards make a sound in the whole Dubai apartment… and it is heavenly. I immensely delight the silence where all I could hear are the words in my head and bring them to life through my laptop screen.

It is a blessing to know when my heart is at peace, my head has its space, and act upon my creative output. It is at these moments when I dream that a masterpiece comes to life with every fibre of love and soul magnificently shining through.

Enjoy the silence, which is a luxury to a safe country. And in those moments, I find the time to also utter a prayer that this peace be experienced by beings whose solace is scarce or impossible.

[1: 1,767 of 10,000] 24 Hours In A Day

I have to take care of my mind, body, and spirit.

I keep neglecting every single one of them.

24 hours in a day was made that way for a specific purpose. Day is for toiling, while night is for resting.

I deplete my energy up to the last bit but fails to fully recharge.

Oh peace, please come to me. My worries do not leave me and it leaves me missing good sleep.

I love having a perfect amount of rest at night because I expect myself to be healthy, smart on my decision making, and alert in completing task with gladness.

I have another night to practice and build the right habit.

[1: 1,732 of 10,000] Nothing Personal

In Poem on June 24, 2016 at 12:47 AM

Cute Monk

Hush now heart, mind, and soul
It is nothing personal when you are being attacked
Human is scared and protects himself

Love and love even more
Love and love anyway
Despite and amidst the hatred, fight with love

Watch the crippling anger
Pause, let it go, and don’t go back
Don’t let it grow, put it into a halt

Find the centre, the quiet, the peaceful
It exists, in meditation or prayer
Mostly in the act of kindness and forgiveness

Enjoy LIFE
Have courage to be silly, laugh
Do what’s best everyday and learn, that is all that is.
