Heart & Life - How do you define them?

Dear friends,

Take break and read up what i have wrote for this entry, perhaps it may enlighten you in a way or another or it may make you feel a little sad.

There is nothing wrong about it, it is your heart who let you feel most emotions including sadness (let us be in literature for a while and leave science behind).

If you are able to feel then, you are alive and have yet to give up this life. On contrary, if you find certain thing in this world are not suitable for such an adult world filled with politics, materialistic and nothing but so called reality and you have closed your child-like-heart and thoughts, i would hope that it is time for you to have some flash back and try recover those memories when you are a little kid when the world is SIMPLE , straight forward, or much less of fraud or 'acting' in life.

Life is not about being an adult or a child BUT in between. That is the reason why we were born as a child instead of a so called 'adult' . I believe it is to let us understand each stages in life and to enable us to adapt in certain situation. Did God ask you to forget things which you have learned and how you used to feel when you are a child as you grew older? Should you feel embarrassed to those experiences?

Now, let us have a simple yet realistic story about life.

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend,
'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked her,'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?'
The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind.
The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her.
She hadn't expected that.
The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying:
'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes...
Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

So, why should we spend time praising and respecting certain human like how we should respect to our creator, and be so insincere in our behavior in order for us to gain certain status/rank and materials in life. Why feel embarrassed that you have known certain peoples who have cared and showers you with love after you have receive a higher 'status/ rank' in life? Because you are 'higher' then them? You are more important to this world than them?

Would you chase after something that appears good yet lose something which is good, which you can feel it and it has been with you? I mean something good like virtues and friends.

Life Is a Gift

Today before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.

If you are saying it out and loud because you are caring and willing to risk a relationship which you could trade with your life, go, leave no stone untouch , but at the very end of your conversation, make the person who you choose to listen to you, really understand that you are concern about him or her.

As for myself, i am not in a condition to give a good advice on this because i have always feel the fear of losing someone who is dear to me. What i can share with you is that : Say it out when you still have the chance to do so.

Do not let regret be your close companion and believe me, if you really care about someone and you let the person know, things will work out in a pleasant manner .... usually ! There is a chance like what happen to me, a person might chose not to tell or to keep certain thing secret from you in order to prevent from harming you, even if it means to harm that person in the 1st place.

Before you complain about the taste of your food -
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife -
Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

Perhaps that person would be me ... haha.

Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who died too early on this earth.

Before you complain about your children - Think of someone who desires children but they're barren.

DO NOT compare your previous experience about life with the presence life that your child is undergoing even if your intentions are good, you want them to know how difficult was your life before this and you have achieved a lot in order to be at the position you are now. It is NOT same.

Please assist and guide them to learn about life. Do not teach or give instructions / orders them around just because you know what is going on based on your experiences or that you think this is the best for them. Let them discover the essence of life and as for you, please be there for them, let your words reach them when they are lost in the darkness, no need to yell at them. DO believe parents and children can be friends.

Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep -
Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive-
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job -
Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another -
Remember that not one of us is without sin.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down -
Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around.

If you feel you don't want to smile at a stranger, go home and smile st your loved one,
your children, or reach out to those who you called a friend.

If you still can't find the appropriate fella, perhaps you may consider the person who delivered these words to you.
