I Wish You

"I wish you the power of a perspective that allows you to see the beauty of the darkness, no matter how threatening your current situation, or how uneasy you may feel. There always is light for us to access, whether it be the light of God, or the light of a close friend, or even the light within ourselves that is the power and the strength with which we've all been blessed with one extent or another."

I Wish You

     I want to share this poem I read from Live Life Fully entitled I Wish You.This is a ten-page journey and I will share one stanza daily.  Here it is:

     I wish you light in your darkest hours. When life seems to be confusing or empty, and when your path seems to be hidden in the shadows of pain, doubt, despair or unrest,may you find the light inside of you that will help you to see things as they really are, for every night comes to an end, every storm runs its course, and light and peace always return to us.

If It Were Your Last Day, What Would You Do?

      If it were your last day, what would you do?

     The question above was repeatedly asked by the radio Deejay on Sunday. This question even is common in question and answer portion in beauty pageants. This made me think how weird this people are, asking such question that is so normal on everyday living. Don't they know that everyday we live is our last? Everyday, we are given the chance to live our lives the best way we want it. Why do we wait for the day when someone would tell us that we would never be alive the next day so we have to do all we want to do this last day that we have? So very absurd thinking. And when others answer this question with all confidence and nobility on how they would live their last day, we would be taken with awe and says, "wow! what a very noble person." Hello! If you believe it were your last day, then do right this very moment the things you want and love to do.

     Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Let me just echo this words from the mystics. What is wrong with us people is that we tend to live in wishful thinking. We love others to believe we have noble plans. The question is, when? When would we do such noble acts? The best answers of the people to the question above are: share to the poor, spend the day with their loved ones, spend their money, go take a vacation to some exotic place, be good, be kind...etc. Beautiful answers, yet nonsense. It would only makes sense if they would act on it today and onwards. If this is going to be so, what a wonderful world we would have.

     On my part, there is no need for me to give the answer to you. I am living my life daily the way I want it. If it is not perfect or remarkable, all because my life is a journey, a process of becoming. Day by day, I am moving an inch to the pedestal I want to put myself to. My life is in God's hands. And if God favors me with a longer one, then it would delight Him and me to see in the end the completion of a worthwhile journey He blessed me with.

     Happy living!

Presence Of Mind

     Presence of mind just means to be present in mind and body wherever you are and whatever you do. However, this is not always happening at all. Due to the busyness of our own businesses and to the many things that we need to attain to, simply being present is impossible. This is what other spiritual seekers refer as living life half dead.  We go on with our daily routine not as living people but as machines. We do things differently from what we are thinking. Consequently, without us being aware of, it will have devastating effects on our lives either in the long term or in the short term.

     The other day this reality of being not present awaken me from my deep slumber. As usual I was going through my daily routine of office work. I did not know this unmindfulness of the present would bounce back to me. It was when I made my daily report that I noticed something was wrong with the figures I worked on. This mattered much especially when we were dealing with money matters. The devastating effect of my failure was I got from my own pocket the shortage incurred due to my unmindfulness. I couldn't believe how it happened for I was doing my work for years now. However, I could not recall, even a tiny bit of it, where did I went wrong with my work that day. But it happened already, nothing I can do to bring the events back. The most important thing was, on that day, I relearned the value of the presence of mind.
