[1: 1,575 of 10,000] Getting These Three Lessons Make My Life More Than OK

In Journal on August 31, 2015 at 10:53 AM

Friends

The greatest three lessons I’ve learned so far that is making my life more than just OK but perfectly and continuously poured with love, peace, and joy –

First – God’s love is so huge, immeasurable, yet He knows the special needs of each individual in the world.

That is how powerful God is! There are moments that I feel like I needed a special attention because in my opinion I have a very special need, everybody at some points wants to feel special, and because our God is so mighty, He is capable of giving just that if I ask, if I communicate.

God is never tired to wait for me and see me grow in baby steps every day. If I humble myself and seek for His guidance, He reveal His love and the Holy Spirit helps me with utmost love and care.

Second – I must have good intentions for others all the time and be grateful for the good I see in them.

The moment I start thinking the wrong path, I don’t feel good inside. I feel like an arrogant person who don’t want to receive the miracle of God. Whatever I wish on others, I wish for myself, so why would I want to wish myself bad things.

It’s like throwing a knife above my head, up in the air, hoping it hit the person who’s upsetting me but the law of gravity clearly demonstrates that it will come back down and hit ME! Once a knife hits me, I will bleed and it’s not the perfect way to live. I would rather throw good wishes or it’s like throwing confettis in the air where it touches the person I wished, it touches somebody else around, and it touches me; now that’s magical.

Third – I exist to enjoy life, create what I love with my best, and share.

I am capable to do what I am supposed to do, it will be definitely something I love and it will definitely make someone’s life better; but the real challenge is I have to accept the responsibility and actually do something. I used to question what is my purpose in life and since I didn’t stop moving forward, I continue appreciating life as it unfolds, then I get glimpses of where I should be headed. Where am I especially if I find peace within me is exactly where I am supposed to be and I got to give my absolute best.

With these three lessons I am immensely grateful.

I don’t need to identify with anything because they are not my life, only my life situation.

Excerpt from “The Power of NOW” by Eckhart Tolle:

A Buddhist monk once told me: “All I have learned in the twenty years that I have been a monk I can sum up in one sentence: All that arises passess away. This I know.” What he meant, of course, was this: I have learned to offer no resistance to what is; I have learned to allow the present moment to be and to accept the impermanent nature of all things and conditions. Thus have I found peace.

To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent upon things being in a certain way, good or bad. It seems almost paradoxical, yet when your inner dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life, the outer forms, tend to improve greately. Things, people, or conditions that you thought you needed for your happiness now come to you with no stuggle or effort on your part, and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them – while they last. All those things, of course, will still pass away, cycles will come and go, but with dependency gone there is no fear of loss anymore. Life flows with ease.

The happiness that is derived from some secondary source is never very deep. It is only a pale reflection of the joy of Being, the vibrant peace that you find within as you enter the state of nonresistance. Being takes you beyond the polar opposites of the mind and frees you from dependency on form. Even if everything were to collapse and crumble all around you, you will still feel a deep inner core of peace. You may not be happy, but you will be at peace.

I just have to share the above to everyone with the hope that it brings you the same freedom and joy that I have felt by reading them. I have to take a whole three paragraphs to share word for word as I could never reiterate them so clearly and precise to bring life that we don’t have to identify with anything.

Our thoughts is not us, but we are the one who see the thoughts. Bad life situations are not meant to attack us, it is just is part of a cycle that came to pass. You and I are made of love, and when we’re free, it emerges and we won’t find any reason to harm one another on the contrary we aim for harmony.

Harmony

Edge

The scared voice inside may suggests the following:

  • It’s better to die, so I don’t need to deal with all these problems.
  • I hope he dies so he wouldn’t harm anyone.
  • My life is so boring and I’m a loser.
  • I have no luck in the world.
  • It’s wrong but it’s fun, so it’s must be all right to keep doing it.

S T O P

Those are the negative thinking that should be reigned and properly addressed. They all hide the real problems.

I have the habit of a control freak and demanding explanations of every single thing. It bothers me a lot when someone is hurting and something has to be done. I often react in haste and harsh, which then depicts my ultimate purpose of peace and love. There are just certain role that it is not ours to perform like judging and punishing.

Life is full of wonders that we are too stubborn to see because we listen to the scared voice inside our head that loop repeated negative movies. Let us practise to fill our head with new beautiful things so we can start doing magnificent things and be more forgiving to ourselves and others.

Breathe. Don’t identify with the voice inside your head that it’s who you are.

Breathe. Focus your mind to righteous beauties or pick one, think of PEACE, picture your happiest memory that brings tranquility to your bothered heart, stay there.

Breathe. Right now is the most important, not the past, not the future, NOW.

Instead of the scared voices, have courage:

  • I don’t get to live forever so today I may try a new way to live with gusto.
  • I pray that he finds the love within him and share it with everyone.
  • I am breathing, I must have a purpose for still being here.
  • I am alive, I am not going to stop hustling.
  • Be nice, be kind, and be generous, because it makes a wonderful feeling.

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

I’ve heard about the hearsay, “that person sold his soul to the devil in order to gain that much wealth and power.” Why does selling our soul to evil quite elicit an immediate gratifying effect or a dream coming true almost instantly? Remember all those movies like Shrek signing a contract with a very fine print and viola wish granted but not perfectly I must say. We should take note the “fine print” but we couldn’t really see until it is happening right before our eyes; but no worries because we have a God that could always save us, the God who loves us unconditionally if we know to reach out and repent.

The road to goodness seems daunting, difficult, and I believe it is so because there is no such great result without properly pouring of true love, time or dedication, sweat or big effort, and it might take time to reach the ultimate goal but the journey itself will have a lasting effect of instilling great values on us from courage, honesty, diligence, humbleness, and all the beautiful qualities you could think of. And come to think of it, once these values gets instilled in us, it gets reused for another battle that would allow us to be brave, confident, and enjoy life because we know we’ve won battles before, and we could win so much more not just for our betterment but the ripple effect could also help others. I would always love the stories of a pupa almost dying but it turned into a magnificent butterfly or a rough stone when refined could turn into a very expensive and elegant diamond jewellery.

No wonder the wise men build his house upon a rock and the foolish one upon a sand or sow a seed in a barren land.

Let us choose doing good. It’s hard work but it’s right choice for all the right reasons. We should feel God’s love and guidance to keep us stronger that we can make it, not alone but having HIM side by side with us to our battle.

[1: 1,359 of 10,000] We Have To Accept Our Differences

In Article on October 25, 2014 at 12:56 PM

Well-rated-stainless-steel-cooking-ware-set-from-Cooks-StandardWhen my sister and I moved to our new apartment, I threw all our cooking wares, the fry pan, the witchy big pot, the wok, everything! I was thinking of investing to the the very expensive revolutionised healthy cooking ware, the piece that I was eyeing was AED 4,000 and then I thought that’s way too pricey considering we already spent too much.

Red Staub PotWe opt for a Staub Iron Cast in bright red so we can cook and bake with it and it was on sale for less than AED 1,000; as days passed by, besides the fact that it is too heavy, I couldn’t really cook all the dishes using it. We bought another boiler and then a skillet, and then it made me realise that like cooking ware, all people are different because every individual existed for a specific purpose. Oprah kept saying we have to find that calling all our life and live it all we don’t truly live.

So enjoy your difference from the person around you, you can do something so amazing that they are thankful to have you. I am thankful for the person who invented restaurants and everyone who work in it because they give me such pleasure and supreme delight. I am thankful to all the writers who inspire me and feed my soul. And I am thankful that I am chasing my dream, step by step, and I am not giving up!

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: 1,356 of 10,000] I Was Too Arrogant

In Journal on October 18, 2014 at 9:55 AM

Bo Sanchez was one of the people I looked up to for wisdom from his selfless works and strong faith to God. He made a prayer and he said everything isn’t his but of God, he was just anointed to manage it. At that moment, I was too arrogant to not only comprehend but accept. I try to ask, God if all these are yours, where is me in it, then He answered me with Eckhart’s book that I was giving in to my CRAZY EGO!

On Bended Knees

I am a piece of so many things but every fibre of my being was carefully woven by His power, love, and perfect plan to give me the freedom and yet walking side by side with me and everything in between. In Oprah’s interview with Paulo Coelho, he said he might not have written the Alchemist at all, but it could be from someone higher. Divine interventions, miracles, are there to help us when we are open and seek for assistance, it is there to inspire us to strive or create something magnificent.

Now I am grateful and I accept that what God has given, He can take it away but He never leave me empty handed, He makes sure I am equipped with everything I need for my life’s battle; so do I need to be arrogant; absolutely not.

 

[1: 1,355 of 10,000] One Goal For The Year

50s Lady

I wanted to be loved by the right man. How do I make myself loveable? Wrong question. I got to treat myself and love myself the way I wanted to be loved. My goal for 2014 is be the woman I would fall in love with, I got barely 3 months to do it so every single day counts because I am welcoming 2015 with grace, elegance, radiance, beauty – yeah the pageant like seems calculated but really isn’t,  but I don’t want to be the best friend of all winning the congeniality, I wanted to be the crown holder.

  1. I would treat myself like a princess. Delicate, paved, and revered.
  2. I will give myself a compliment. Endearingly accept, live, believe.
  3. I will be nice, polite, charming, a blessing for anyone who comes across me.
  4. I am centered, focused, open for the magic enveloping me.
  5. I will be calm, smile, composed, and warm at all times.
  6. I will listen to my heart, answer to my call, and passionately and struggle to emerge as a hero from the battle of my life.
  7. I will dance for every beat and melody, feeling how my bones and muscles moves with the grooves.
  8. I will praise my creator, to cherish all His endless love, and honour Him with every time I live with the present.
  9. I will enjoy the life that I see, appreciate the good and learn from the beautiful mistakes, and to be always grateful.
  10. I will be whole and ready to expand even more.

I love every inch of my being, its longing, desires, and every bits of joy and enthusiasm stirred when my spirit gets awakened.

Right now is what I have
Right now I hear my heart beats and the air that goes in and out from my body
Right now I smile and murmur lots of thank yous
Right now I delight with every letter that I typed that formed into words
Right now I drink the coldest and sweetest coke
Right now I smell the fresh scent of gladness of being still of being here
Right now I honour the silence, the awakening
Right now I am glad, at peace
