YOUR mantra for the week: When I feel I am worthy, my blessings find me.
If you have not found your purpose in life, listening to that still, small voice within can lead to discovery. As you listen, you will hear:
My beloved child, you are here to share your worth, to work and serve, to fulfill your dreams, to fulfill a specific purpose. And what is that? Contemplate, meditate on it. Let the ideas flow through your consciousness. Let the feelings come about. Your soul knows its purpose.
Is it to get rich or richer? It cannot be all about money. Money is only an instrument, a tool, a medium to achieve your purpose. It is available to you to the degree that you are fulfilling your purpose in life which, to a large extent, gives you joy. Your work has to be your pleasure so you may reap the benefits.
You were given a body to suit your purpose—a perfect vehicle to move you toward your goal that will help you make a difference. What a perfect vehicle your body is!
How can you make a difference in life? How can you matter? How can you serve? How does love play a role in your purpose? How much love is needed in your work? How much love must you give to be considered as one who loves intelligently?
In your moments of silence, ask the God within you and the answers shall be given to you. In your heart of hearts, you know that you are wonderful, your purpose sublime.
You are building the capacity to add something to the universe and make it more beautiful than it already is. Therefore, know yourself more… how unique you are, how original.
Know that every intelligent decision you make moves you forward and onward. Find your purpose. Share your worth. Make a difference. Make that difference in your life.
Democracy at work
Congratulations to presumptive President Rodrigo Duterte and presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo who are both leading in the partial, unofficial results of the May 9 elections.
As I had mentioned last week, they would be the probable choices of the Ro-Ro (Rodrigo-Robredo) rather than the other Ro-Ro (Roxas-Robredo), based on the Cycle theory on one’s yearly natal biorhythm, which I had been trolled about since the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight and the Pia Wurtzbach victory.
I received comments like “This is the sh*ttiest article I have read; I can’t believe Inquirer would stoop so low as to publish crap articles such as this one; At this time and age of information you are spreading disinformation, superstition and lies; What a waste of time reading a self-serving article; Kamangmangang walang kaparis. Ang paniniwalang nakasalalay ang buhay at pangyayari ng ating buhay sa mga galaw ng mga planeta at bituin ay tanda ng ’di gumaganang utak sa bungo ng isang tao…” Among other comments.
These trolls do not bother me because it simply shows that they do not understand the “language” from which I am speaking. They have every right to their opinions which only underscores that democracy is at work in this country today, unlike in the days of martial law when there was only one dominating opinion
—from the mandarambong.
I also congratulate and commend Comelec chair Andres Bautista for a job so well done that the world now knows that we have matured as an electorate and that we can hold honest, peaceful and truthful elections.
‘Losers’ but truly winners
Also, we have “losers” who are truly winners as they conceded the elections to Duterte early like Sen. Grace Poe and former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.
Roxas proved he’s a statesman and truly worthy of becoming president under different circumstances. As he noticed tears flowing from the eyes of his supporters, he said: “This is not a time for tears. It is a time to celebrate that our country has had honest elections and is now in the process of a peaceful transfer of power and governance.” What a touching valedictory.
In the case of Poe, what I recall very clearly was an interview where she was asked: “How would you feel if you did not win in this presidential election?” With a big smile on her face, she answered: “I will just go back to my being a happy senator. For when I ran in this election, I just wanted to be of greater service to my countrymen.” Another one whose time is sure to come!
Why Rodrigo and Robredo
My choice to vote for Duterte had raised a lot of eyebrows. But I was convinced of his sincerity by a reliable source, who has been helping the Davao City mayor promote education in Mindanao long before he considered to run for president. This source even showed me text messages from Duterte to prove this point.
As far as Robredo is concerned, her impeccable character is said to be “so easy to sell.” It seems like that the Marcoses get their karma from widows—first was Cory; and now, Leni.
Notice that Duterte and Robredo were both persuaded and cajoled to run for the most powerful positions in the country. As a result, even Joma Sison is coming home—a sign that we are now moving toward a more harmonious and peaceful country.
Less we forget, our clean and honest elections, like it or not, we owe to the Aquino administration. Add to that, the Reproductive Health Law and the investment grade the country has gained—that is why I will always be a P-Noy fan.
