The Satisfied LIFE

“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.” John 7:37 “…if any man thirst…” Why would anyone be thirsty in a feast? This was the “…great day of the feast…”. That was certainly not a time of […]

The Growth of Life

John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” There is a thief on the loose in this planet. His fiery eyes and corrupted heart is set on something of inestimable value. He […]

The Power of Contribution

Think. What is life when it’s all about getting and never giving? What is wealth that is not shared? What is happiness that does not mobilize the masses upon a worthy ideal? Life is unbearable without an opportunity to contribute. You may have things and privileges but without an outlet for sharing your very soul […]

What meaning are you giving to life?

The meaning you give to an event, a situation, an experience drives your life more than the event, situation or experience itself. Life is what it is. We can’t change what it is. Whenever we change anything about life, it is actually the meaning – what it means to us – that we change. And […]

…And if the world doesn’t stop?

When things suddenly take a miserable turn, as though heaven’s help is withdrawn… and we begin to stutter at our recollection of past interventions, finding words to aptly chronicle our recent predicaments, and frantically protesting this abrupt intermission in our all-too-glorious autobiography taking “ages” to complete; does it astound us that life continues? ~ ~ […]

Dealing with S.T.R.E.S.S. once and for all

Does it look like we can live in this planet anymore without being exhausted? There is just so much pressure on everyone. Work, family, and other daily routines have made a slave out of many of us; and that without any apologies. The principle of rest is one that does not make sense to us […]

Pastimes

Pastimes have long been dominated by the idea of pleasure seeking, relaxation and actual sleep. We always want to contract back to our routine of rest after a hard day’s job. It is not a bad idea at all; but when all we think about is ‘when that time will come’ when we are at […]

Desire

Whether you are born rich or poor, we are all born to become ‘pursuant’ to certain life ideals…. It is a certain ‘something’ within us to have a pursuit; for the very life itself cannot be endured let alone enjoyed in the absence of pursuits. This presupposes that the very reality of life is a […]

Joy

The unburdening of the heart…the release of gratitude…the venting of emotions… …it comes across pretty much like this. When joy becomes a stranger to your soul, the issues of your life seeming way more formidable than slipping in an occasional snicker that could calm your nerves a bit and give you a slight holiday from […]
