     "Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment, or unlearning, of fear and acceptance of love back into our hearts. Love is the existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others is the meaning of life."

     Abuse of anyone is simply a lack of love in ourselves and others. While allowing anyone to continually abuse us is simply a lack of self love alone. For if anyone loves her or his self, why would she or he allow such abuse? This is the ideal; yet we naturally fall out of this thin line. Until what is wrong would simply appear as "normal" because we just simply get used to it. Until love is no more than a wishful thinking.
     We are able to fill our lives with love because that is what we were born with.We can, and we simply must.

     Keep on Loving!

The Power Within

     The center of power is not to be found in summit meetings or in peace conferences. It is not in Peking or Washington or the United Nations, but rather where a child of God prays in the power of the Spirit for God's will to be done in her or his life, in her or his home, and in the world about her or him.
      Ruth Bell Graham

     No one is able to defeat someone whose power is within. Anybody whose power depends on material wealth and even has the highest position in any given office is full of hidden fears; for these kind of powers could be easily snatched by anyone interested in these. However, anyone who is not even a position holder in any given office, yet possesses the power within which could not be taken or stolen by anyone, is by far the happiest of all. Because this is the kind of power that is rooted in a deep faith of the Most Powerful Creator of all: God. Such person fears nothing; for how could he when the Power within does not recognize such fears?

Stay IN-tuned!

Little Moments

     In your occupations, try to possess your soul in peace. It is not a good plan to be in haste to perform any action that it may be sooner over. On the contrary, you should accustom yourself to do whatever you have to do with tranquility, in order that you may retain the position of yourself and of settled peace.
     Madame Guyon

     In life I learned most when I come face to face with choosing between the relevant from the irrelevant. It is true that I learn from others. But then, what others have gone through that makes them what they are, is much different from what I have been through. I may envy the eagle that teaches me about soaring high as something achievable; yet should I do what the eagle did when I am given another gift wherein I could be everything that I am?

     Lots of people are shouting at us, to do as they did that in the end we may be like them having achieved what they call as highest achievement of a human being; like having much money, visiting places, increasing assets and many others. Though it is tempting to live in comfort as a result of my effort; yet why drive myself to the edge just to possess these things, when all that matters to me is the shape of my soul and spirit and not my status? If others are in their highest awareness while doing these things then I let them be.

      As for me, the greatest achievement I would have made is being at peace and happy with every moment that is given to me. It does not mean I would stop giving my best in my work and in every responsibility that is given me. It only means living as I am, the real God-given me, is much effective for me and all the relationship I am involved with. I am not on the side of being harried in life in order to enjoy it much in the end. I am on the side of enjoying my life in these little moments, for in the end when these moments are all summed up I would have lived a happy and fulfilling life.
     Have a happy moment!

God's Will

     Nature has blended your mind so completely with your body, as to deny you the power of limiting yourself and bringing under control everything that you are. Always bear that in mind, and with it, how little is needed to live a happy life. Just because you've given up on becoming a great logician or student of physics, don't despair of being free, modest, unselfish, and obedient to the will of God. It's quite possible to become a great sage and yet never be recognized.
Marcus Aurelius

     If the prediction of 2012 is indeed true, I would continue to be doing just what I am doing now - still improving what needs to be improved in myself, especially my relationship with God. What lies ahead of me is not under my control. I would just be obedient to the Will of God. The rhythms of life are under God's hands. God also gives me the Will to be at pace with the rhythms of this life. Why would I despair when the God I believe is faithful to His promises? He is God and has given me everything I need to be happy. When I am unhappy, it only means I have stray away from God's pace. That is what life is all about; keeping with the pace of God.

     Whatever will come, I am at the center of God's mercy.

     I could not say whether it was coincedence or not; but it took only one day for me to discover the end of the world prediction in 2012 after I posted about my dream of our planet's possible end. In my post I was positive on what to do. However, after reading Gerard Le Flamand's blog I was speechless. I did not know what I felt. It was kind of fear or unbelief that the planet I am living will soon end in three years time as predicted. It was only a prediction I know. But then some possible reasons for it to be so were already manifested; like the increased heat of the sun.  
     For days I was restless. I wanted to talk to God, to search Him, to ask Him why. I felt so much betrayed. If we, humans, are God's focal point of His creation, then why does He wants to end us? Why does He would allow such catastrophe to befall on us?
     Last night I did talk to God, and He answered only the questions I managed to ask. He could have said more, but I was not on a deeper level so as to listen God's voice in its entirety. My spirit heard only the beatings of my heart and its little messages.
     These were the messages I managed to gather: God loves us so much. If He were to end this world, it is not because He loves us less; He just loves us so much that He is taking us to some beautiful place, much much better than where we are now because we deserve that. And if we, too, love Him and believe in Him, then why must we doubt His promises? Why must we be afraid on where He is taking us? In the Old Testament God was always saving His people, those who heard His voice and took heed of His will, and brought them out before any damage was done in the place where they stayed.
     I am not saying God will take us out just like the way He intructed Noah to build an ark. I don't know how. This is just what my heart of hearts told me. Whether the prediction will come true or not, at least I am assured that everything is going to be alright as long as I would not doubt God's faithfulness. I am a little pacified by now.
     By the way, while talking to God last night I was looking up at the sky watching the brilliant stars. A beautiful thing registered in my senses: the sparkling stars I watched were forming heart-shaped. Wherever I looked up, my gaze focused only heart-shaped formations by the stars: the very first time that ever happened in my stargazing activity. The very first time ever.
     Be not afraid my soul, for the love of God assures.

The tide was low exposing the seashore's rocky surface that beckoned me to come and gather some shells from its bounty. As I was about to step out to the tempting shore, seawater rushed to cover the exposed surface. The tide became higher and higher and higher; until I was surrounded by four walls of waters. Becoming aware that that there was no escape, I prayed, believing that would be my end. Fortunately, I have woken up and realized that it was all a dream; a dream that left my restless mind pondering.

We all have heard of islets and islands already submerged in water due to the fast melting of ice and glaciers. What if the formidable will actually happen in our generation and we will be a witness of a whole civilization being buried in water? Heat waves strike anywhere in the globe from Asia to Europe to America. The ozone layer's hole increased day by day. Who knows what will happen in the next ten or twenty years?

If we could no longer save our planet then let us at least save our souls. From now on let us focus more our energies on striving to make our souls in the best shape so that if we are to go back to the Father either by our own doing or by the Father's will we are already prepared and would have no fear whatsoever in our hearts.

We may not be able to control others destroying our planet but saving our souls depends so much on ourselves.
