One of my many “Notes to Self”

24 Sep

In our aloneness, we learn from the things around us.

We learn a lot from ourselves too.

Sometimes, we are our own best company.

And it doesn’t have to equate with loneliness.

Have courage.

It’s the only thing left to do.

Will you?

“I will love you when you are a hurricane.”

Third-Degree Burns

19 Jul

Light Up the Fire

I gaze into the heart, lowly it may be,
Thought the words be higher still.
For the heart is all the substance,
The speech an accident.
How many phrases will you speak,
Too many for me.
How much burning, burning will you feel,
Be friendly with the fire, enough for me.
Light up the fire of love inside,
And blaze the thoughts away.

-Rumi

 

I was looking for a poem on solitude, on how it serves as a companion (aka together with a bunch of good/bad/mixed thoughts), and I stumbled upon fire yet again.

Fireflies, twin flames, fascinations and code names… last 3 involved fire.

Currently, suffering but surviving third-degree burns.

La vita è bella. Believe it and live it.

#dearGod, #dearUniverse

15 Jul

“#dearGod, #dearUniverse” are the common hashtags I use when I say my heart’s desires out loud on twitter. And like my recent private post , I put the same thing when I wished for me to be employed soon.

Realizing what just happened, I did a reflection on why I really put those hashtags.

I felt sorry for the times I asked Him for my heart’s desires, yet doubted. I also felt sorry for the times when I had faith it’ll be granted, yet not patient enough to keep calm about it. God and the Universe sure know how to make things fall into place, so those doubts, impatience and anxiety are unnecessary.

 

God, now that I’m in this new adventure, I hope I may be good in keeping Your plans together. May the things You allowed to fall into place not fall apart under my care. I am thankful for this passion for love and service. It somehow drives me and my loved ones crazy, but I am grateful for this kind of fuel. I pray for wisdom, discipline and good health to carry out all the tasks I need to do. I will not pretend, in reality, passion is not enough to live life. May this new work support me financially too, so I wont have to quit and ask for better opportunities. May You also lead me in the right path for further studies, so I know where my knowledge, skills and experience will be most useful. Let me be of service without thinking of ego. I am here for the children and for education because it’s the purpose I was called to serve, but it doesn’t mean in any way that I’m better than others. Help me to always remember that service is outwards, not inwards. More than what I can gain, it’s what I can give. I am more than willing to be Your instrument to help the children learn. Thank you for the opportunity. 

 

 

They say people’s faith is a thing incorporated in one’s life, just a part of a routine. Others say it’s just a coping mechanism. But when perfectly orchestrated things happen and make sense to you, God’s existence and the Law of Attraction of the Universe are not just lunatic ideas. Your faith is only doubled. Anxiety and impatience are useless to plans set your way by God.

Always remember, His plans are bigger, greater and grander than your heart’s desires. Just trust and sing, “nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.” ; )

#LovePeaceBliss

23 Jan

happy, adj.: I don’t want to be anywhere else, with anyone else.

I don’t want to be anyone else.

I just want this, which is what I have.

And that is right here, being no one but myself…

in love, in peace, and in bliss with you. 

3am Thoughts on 2013

22 Dec

Now that the new year is about to come, people have been doing year-end reviews of their lives. Nowadays, that has been made easy by the social networking site, Facebook. As I went through mine, flashbacks from a year ago ’til a few months back came 😦 On how happy I was with the spare I got, how much (I think) I gave out, and how easy it was for others to put it all away and keep me out despite it all.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful I have someone special now. She came right before the year comes to an end. Someone who made me feel more than okay, as if I didn’t just come from battle. But… Love is such a wonderfully beautiful thing, and that makes it way too scary.

If that long distance and limited everything set-up made me fear heartaches that much, how much more this relationship that gives me so much love, happiness and peace within every single day that we’ve been together?

But then, I can’t let fear eat me whole.

The Firefly to that Wildfire

5 Dec

I like children, toys, books, good food, theater, twitter, plane rides, beaches, underwater, surprises, hearts, rainbows, anything LGBT+ among many other things.

ayee

I have too many interests that distract my attention with work and all.

But nothing really distracts my heart from you. :>

wildfire

It may seem like I’m everywhere, but my love’s a moth, hovering around my wildfire. Only difference is that I catch the fire but don’t get burned. Love turns me into something beautiful instead, that glows and shines in the end.

fireflies-jar

I’m the firefly to that wildfire.

Ever yours. Ever mine. Ever ours.
