[1: 2,036 of 10,000] Eckhart’s Point of Staying Awake

In Article on December 5, 2020 at 11:01 AM

There was one video wherein I remembered Eckhart Tolle saying he wanted to stay awake and not to go to bed too soon to enjoy the present moment. I finally understood what he meant. I could feel the flow of joy running through my veins, my mind stops worrying and I could see every single beautiful things surrounding me. I wanted to bathe in that moment of peace and unconditional love.

I don’t do that often though because as a human being, I get tired, I get sleepy, I got work in the morning and I needed my brain well rested to function and produce good works. As much as I wanted to soak the goodness of being truly present, I let go and marvel of the point that sleeping is another form of meditation, releasing any resistance for Life Force to flow through me.

[1: 1,861 of 10,000] My Dreams

In Question on January 15, 2017 at 7:50 PM


I wonder why do I have dreams. Is it a language of my subconscious speaking to me when it got my full attention? Full attention meaning whenever I close my eyes then I am alone inside my mind.

Why do they come in symbols that needs to be decoded? Why does my dreams translate in steno and I couldn’t understand it on my own unless I try to consult to an almost reliable online dream dictionary? Is it because my subconscious is connected with my soul that have higher understanding that my intelligence won’t be able to simply grasp?

Are my dreams really suppressed emotions or an awakening revelation of my life’s journey? I am fascinated that I kept dreaming about my dead parents. What are they trying to say? Or is it my own self trying to teach myself to learn from the past? Have I not learned to let go?

Indeed, my current mystery!

[1: 1,816 of 10,000] Sleep Is Not Overrated

In Prayer on November 27, 2016 at 11:59 PM


I once fall in love with a man who thinks sleep is overrated until I’ve reached the point that I know it isn’t.

My favorite quote about sleep that encourages me to go to slumber is:

“While you sleep, I’m solving your problems. Let it go. Rest in me.”

[1: 1,714 of 10,000] I Must Learn Discipline

In Article on June 6, 2016 at 5:54 AM

I must learn discipline once again. When I was a child, I am more inclined to do it because I have the energy and I have the young will of everything is possible (or was it scary that if I don’t do this I get punished and there’s that too).

Now that I am all grown up, everything that I do has to have a purpose and I am slipping to find the proper reasons sometimes and justify the wrong. It needs to change if I want to live a healthy, joyful, rich, and love-filled life.

My daily rituals must be –

  1. Daily RitualWork must stay at the office and home is when I rest again.
  2. Set a time to go to be early to wake up early.
  3. Exercise to breathe better, have the energy to do more with enthusiasm, and so that I am no longer required to take medicine and a frequent visit with the doctor.
  4. Do something that light up my soul with delight from posting blogs, listening to various great music, reading books, write the next book, and start a business.
  5. Pray to seek connection with God and have the ample rest of my whole being, the confidence to move forward despite being scared, and to have the proper wisdom.


[1: 1,701 of 10,000] Rest

In Journal on April 30, 2016 at 11:16 AM

I was losing my sanity. I was tired, angry, filling my head with constant negativity, and at the brink of quitting my job without any assurance of what would feed me tomorrow. I was begging to die (this is a whole other vantage point).

Always trying to live at the extreme and at the edge of the cliff. I always know I am provided but not without suffering, test of endurance, and it exhausting especially when I couldn’t find my centre. My body is so smart that when I had enough, it will break, it will yell an illness, so for a day, I surrendered.

I take a sick leave from work for a day because headache was excruciatingly trying to crack my head open.


It was not a pleasant experience. It was a struggle to put my effort on sleep almost the whole day. I watched a comedy special to laugh until I cry. I cooked a simple food to feed my body. I never worried about work.

The next day, I was cheerful, I was thinking positively, and there was no amount of bad news that let me down.

So if you’re feeling overwhelmed, rest if you must and you really should. 🙂

[1: 1,692 of 10,000] Sleeping on Sofa

In Journal on March 5, 2016 at 11:17 AM

I have a guilty confession, I have a bad habit of sleeping on our sofa. The worst streak is 3 nights in a row or were there even a 4, oh my I got to stop!


The sofa photo above looked a lot like my sofa right now (#Ikea) and it’s not lenghty so I usually curl up and in all fairness when I put my back at the corner, it felt like I am being hugged by a bear; and it felt nice and almost comforting until my feet hurts for curling for too long.

Why is it so bad to sleep on the sofa? I know exactly that I do that when I got too tired working the whole day, I am worried of all the things that I still need to do, but most of all it’s a reflection that I am all over the place and I am acting out like a homeless in the street. I have my proper bed, proper comfy pillow and blanket and what do I do, I retreat to the sofa, restless, and it got me worried that I forget how to be on my bed.

Sofa has always a different pull of me. It’s terrifying. It’s like I am not all grown up that I could not discipline myself. Well, so far, I seemed to be on tracked and been on my bed for 2 nights! No more breaking. I laugh at myself whenever I gets defeated on this weakness, it’s a loud cry of I need help, and yet I have no one to reach, I simply need to build up the right habit and for the love of myself, do what I need to do.

Nobody Cares

I am super busy that anyone who gets my attention is really important. I am enjoying my new work, the challenge, and the growing dedication. I wanted to make a difference and I am hoping to really rock it.

Although, no matter how busy I am, I do devote time to blog everyday, sleep everyday, eat well as much as I can, and pray. These are things that I love and I need so it will always have a room in my day. Praying makes me feel grounded and more courageous that I can tackle anything because I have a glorious help. Blogging makes me feel like I do have a life outside of work, something I can be proud of and umph my groove. I need to sleep and eat because it will keep me alive.

I am looking forward to weekend and sleep long hours. I hope it is not the same as last Friday where the agenda for the day is sleep. 😀

[1: 1,514 of 10,000] Feed Your Body & Let It Sleep

In Article on July 1, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Kid & Toy

I have been hustling again for my next big project and I am killing it, while killing myself on the side. My sleeping patterns lately are stealing essential naps and not a deep sleep only to heed to the call of my muse and complete my list of To Dos.

Yesterday, I was depending on caffeine to stay awake, functional, and able to drive. I could sense the uneasiness physically, irritability, and fatigue. By the time I reached home, I am panicking and took awhile before I surrender to sleep, on my bed, after a good warm bath, and it was already past midnight.

Sleep is very important to reenergize the body and my favourite part of getting a good sleep is being alert. I like it when my focus is sharp and I can get tasks done faster because it is easier. I don’t believe when some people say that sleep is overrated because it will never be. It looks like we’re in a state of inaction but not every essential things in life have to be seen with our naked eye, our body need to rest so when we wake up, we could take on the world.

Before I indulge in the habit of napping instead of deep sleep, I better get things in order to remain healthy and happy. Feed your body and let it sleep when it’s dark.

[1: 1,321 of 10,000] No More Alarm Clock

In Journal on May 23, 2014 at 5:02 PM

I made it! I finally established that I will only wake up with my biological clock. It endearingly nudges me at 6-ish in the fresh morning.


I have been a lunatic keeping an alarm clock at 5AM only to ignore it. It does prepare me an hour before I get up but in truth it only disrupted a blissful slumber.

I feel free for getting rid of my alarm clock. It took practice and it is really possible. It is my part of my journey of getting myself healthy with the constant reminder that I should sleep every night on my bed. The latter still proved to be a challenge.

I am trying to think of a post that would make sense but my brain ceased working. I’ve been working too hard and I have not given my body an ample sleep. The worst part is I’m expected to wake up early to jog. Will I make it? Will find out tomorrow.

The Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) 2012 started today! I’m loving the fireworks display.

I can’t type nor read – until tomorrow.
