forgive or die of bitterness….


Forgive our Offenders.

We are unhappy because we tend to always remember the past experiences we should forget. We nurse and immerse the intimate pain that robs us from being free and happy. We take too seriously the losses, frustrations, failures and betrayals which eat and nibble us painfully. Scientifically speaking, human brain cannot forget but we can forget the pain, bitterness and sorrow that other people have done to us.

The people who hurt and wronged us ought to be forgiven if we want to be truly happy in our life. Don’t allow past to control the future and don’t rehearse the mistakes committed against us because it disconnects us from God. In both cases, anger hurts more the victim than it does to the offender. Don’t curse them and wish them bad luck for it is an ungodly task. Don’t harbor grudge because unforgiving attitude refrains us from experiencing real friendship that may come our way. Unforgiving and revengeful people develop pimples and wrinkles and become ugly both inwardly and outwardly.

It is hard to forgive because of the cuts and scrapes given to us but it is also hard not to forgive because we are always angry and bitter. Whichever the case maybe, both of them are hard in equal measure, choose the Christian way— forgive!






be childlike….


Children teach us how much we have yet to learn. They ensue us to take ourselves more lightly. They exude the sense of playfulness because life is a celebration for them. They tell us to unmask our absurdities and superficialities. They tell us to throw away our maliciousness and hypocrisy to avoid conflict.

Many people are disillusioned by worldly-inspired craziness. We have distorted view of beauty and we think it is all there is to it. We have unquenchable thirst for beauty. We like things beautiful and we like beautiful things.


The smorgasbord of our erroneous society tells us that if we’re ugly, we’re out! Better hide our face. Really? Whoever said that should go home with his/her big gorilla nose because we are all genuinely beautiful human beings in our own terms.



Where is our turning point?


                           Have you experienced you don’t know where to turn to? Have you listened to everybody but gained nothing? Have you felt you don’t know what to do? or whom to trust? It is the moment when circumstances are not in favor to you, when events in your life are going wrong and when people hurt you and let you down. In effect, you need to decide on what path you will tread and what point you will turn to. On the verge of decision-making, turning point signifies a life-changing experience. But, it is hard to know our turning point…. where is our turning point?






Do we create something out of nothing or do we create nothing out of something just for material values?  Material values are lying to tell the truth about consumerism and damnation.  We should avoid luxurious living. We should live below our means. We should stay out of debt. We should not buy products or services we cannot afford. In short, we should simplify our life.






one will understand others unless he/she goes through the same disaster. Until we suffer, we can never truly understand the sufferings of others. Until we fail, we can never truly understand the shame of others. Until we are frustrated, we can never truly understand the loneliness of others. Until we lose someone, we can never truly understand the grief of others.

Until we are rejected, we can never truly understand the bitterness of others. Until we are being judged and put down, we can never truly understand the dismay of others. Until we are betrayed, we can never truly understand the anger of others.  Until we are attacked, we can never truly understand the fear of others.  Until we are hurt, we can never truly understand the hurt of others.



We should not believe totally when we hear something negative and unverified about other people. We shouldn’t be idle-mouthers who always talk but never say anything important and be bad-mouthers who engage in everybody’s talk of town. Listening to everything and to everyone is useless. Speculations and harsh judgments are destructive. We have no idea who they really are, don’t know them on a personal level and where they are coming from. We have no right to judge them and comment on something we don’t fully understand. There are better things to do than to listen to unverified stories of gossip-hungry people. They just waste our time.
