Back To The Right Path

Deepak Chopra's meditation has helped me a lot. As you can see I have been quite tired for a longer time now; two months to say the least. I tried meditation to ease my pains and aches and to relax my muscles and heart. I felt a lot better. Thanks to Deepak Chopra. His way of meditation is not new to me since I have been practicing this kind of meditation way back in my twenties; though at that time meditation has not yet been introduced to all, unlike today with the advent of Internet everything is just one click away. But truly, at that time, I never know what I was doing was a kind of meditation, and was an antidote to the soul. It just came to me quite naturally, as if my spirit was used to doing it. 
However, as my business in life became complicated, my time seemed to be not enough for all my undertakings. Meditation, which should have been the most important of all, was the very thing I have given up to accommodate my other activities. For ten long years I have given it up. As stress and more stress mounted up in my life, I felt so many unhealthy feelings in my body. I felt weak, tired, fatigued, sickly and worst of all depressed; though I am a little guilty for feeling depressed when I should be thankful for all the blessings I received in life, especially my happy family. 
Seeing everything I was doing in my life, I had the urge to pause, looked back in the past and asked myself what happened. I realized I have been taking everything so seriously. I was all work and no play. It would have been better if I got wealthy for being so industrious. Sadly, I was not. I am still the same struggling soul I used to be but much worst, for my spirituality was dwindling inside of me. I felt so lost. However, God always light up one's despaired soul. He whispered in my ear to try meditation and prayer once again. Thankfully, the Internet is loaded with all kinds of meditation from highly enlightened individuals. Once again I embark on this journey. 
And I am so happy I did it, for my soul responded so joyfully to it. I began to like Deepak Chopra's version. I seemed to be brought again to where I had been and started again where I once stopped.
Get happy!

Crowning Glory

While Amy Schumer wiped her make-up in her sketch, "Inside Amy Schumer" that triggered a No Make-up Movement I also am experimenting on not hiding my quite number of white hairs. I have been plucking these white hairs since I forgot when. You know, these signs of aging that you do not want to happen to you and trying to prevent it from happening just to make yourself and others believe that you are still young. I am able to make others believe that I look younger than my age because of my petite built. But my white hairs show it. I have already done a couple of dying from my beautician. It felt good and looked good. It is so flattering when someone tells you, "hey you never age, what's the secret?" Every time I hear this I feel like I become younger and younger. Though most of us know that to maintain  a younger look, it only takes a trip to the salon. 
Yet, why do am experimenting if I can live with my silver crowning glory? Health issues. We all know that too much chemicals is not good for our body. It is toxic to our body. It will help us look younger and make us die younger too. So I think why not concentrate on my inner glow? I may look "older" outside but who can prevent me from glowing younger inside? When the spirit glows, it shows. No one knows what it is you have that makes you attractive. And no one could also deny it. And this is the genuine beauty that would never fade after a few months. As long as I am in tune to that what makes me beautiful within, I would never be afraid. 
Now I say I embrace my white hairs. It is a crown I wear for being blessed with a number of decades in this world. My body may no longer look stunning than my previous years; I do hope my spirit will. And I am happy.

Will You Please Stop Criticizing?

Yesterday I read an FB post concerning the attitude of other people; of how untrue they are, and of how unloving they are. Though there is a grain of truth in it, yet what can we do about it? Millions of people like that are roaming in planet Earth. We could not do anything about it. Jesus came. Jesus left. Still these kind of people exist. On my take, instead of criticizing how unbecoming these people are, could we just love them? I know it is hard. But how sure also are we that never, not even once in our life have we become unloving and untruthful. I acknowledge my humanity. And I acknowledge also the fact that once or perhaps many times in my life have I been untrue and unloving. Sadly, these times happen in my unawareness. People long to be loved and accepted. They would not do anything that would make them look nasty, save only the fact if they are unhealthy (that is, if they have disease like masochism and the like). 
Man is a complex being. We all know that. People behave according to the voice of their experiences, or of their influences. So could we please stop criticizing and begin forgiving and loving? I would be much grateful if you will forgive me and love me than criticize me. I am already doing the same to you, whoever you are. This is the easier way to bring peace to the world. This is the Christian way.
Get happy!

Saved By An Angel

Last night I had a dream. I dreamed I was cleaning. After a while I noticed that part of my dustpan was missing. It was down below near the edge of the riverbank. In order to get it I had to pass through a narrow downhill path along the riverbank. The path was very steep. Without much second thoughts I immediately went down to get the part of the dustpan. But when I reached three steps down I lost my balance and fell right to the raging waters of the muddy river. The fall was high. As I was on the air I felt so helpless. I just took a deep breath and said, "God I now let go. My fate is in your hands. Everything depends on You now." As I fell on the water, I managed to rise to the surface and stayed afloat and tried to swim towards the riverbank. Yet, the current was so strong my efforts were all in vain. I was carried further to the center. Fear took hold of me. I thought that was already the end of me. However, suddenly a strong hand grabbed my right forearm. I looked to see who it was. It was a brown-skinned man swimming alongside me. He just came out of nowhere. His grip was comforting and somehow was telling me I would be saved. No matter how strong the current amidst the raging waters he managed to bring me to the edge of the riverbank. When I was safely brought back to my family who was waiting at the side of the river, he disappeared immediately the way he appeared. His presence made me curious. I thought, he might be just around looking at me always; and when he saw me in danger he rushed to my help. Then I asked  a friend about him, of who he was. A friend just told me he was his cousin. I doubt it though because deep in my heart I believed he was no ordinary human being. He did not talk. He just looked at me as if he knew me and his stare seemed to say, I care for you. His presence was also very comforting. And though after he saved me I glanced at him from afar before he was gone, I felt he would just be around looking after me. When we look at the raging river again; it was already so calm and clear. They said it was just due to the rains that the water became muddy and raging. Now it was so calm you could clearly see the stones. It was still deep yet so calm. I felt so at peace looking at that river which almost took my life. And happy at the same time that there is always someone looking after me.

Though it was just a dream, it seemed so real to me. What if that person did not arrive? What would happen to me? Shall I die in my dream? I don't know. I don't know. One thing is clear for me. I called on God, and He sent an angel to save me. I also interpret that dream as, when I am in trouble I just have to call on God because He always answer and will always send someone who is going to help me. And whatever troubles I will be in, it would not last. The serenity it brings after I conquer it is so refreshing to my soul. God would never ever leave me. I believe that was my first physical encounter with my guardian angel, whom my God sent. Have you had any encounter with your angels too?

Get happy!
