Heart's Desire: Living A Humanitarian Life



This day marks the beginning of a new journey to life; the start of a soulful experience of a higher self beyond the physical realm of existence. This day also marks the re-discovery of true self beyond ego and lower emotions. When the lost soul wanders, it surely will find its place to regain self and follow the guiding light.

The lost chapters may be out of sight, however those darkest moments find a way to escape leading to a brighter and fulfilling journey. Through a deeper self-reflection, one has to find the right path and live with its soul purpose -- the so-called dharma.

The darkest moments in life are the unheard hopes and aspirations; the endless sufferings and blockages towards living a better life. Being redirected on a long tunnel is to experience the reality of the negative side of the physical world. To experience not just the good but also the unfavorable things beyond personal control. To be human is to experience suffering. Learn from it and continue to seek for the answer; find the truth and be the guiding light to those who wander. When you've been there, it will be easy to relate to the suffering one is dealing with and you become a master of your life -- your thoughts and emotions.

Those years when I started to discover another dimension of life, was a great spiritual experience and of personal transformation. It wasn't easy at the beginning. You have to undergo self-restraint and sense of control in thoughts and emotions. It was only then, lower emotions are defeated through enlightenment of the nature of man's suffering -- an endless suffering.

The initiation towards the path brought significant change not only to self but to a greater world. Being called to serve humanity and the world revealed the spiritual powers vested on me and it became a way of living.  Understanding the nature of  humanity requires certain values one must learn to live.  It was then I've learned to unleash love and compassion  that is innate and the core of our being. I couldn't have given it to people without deeper understanding and loving of my self. I have loved myself and had given it away.

Truly, humanitarian service is the greatest expression of love and compassion. To regain myself is to continue the lost journey. It will be a challenging task, but hopefully will be a rewarding journey ahead. Following Our Heart's Desire serves as a guide to live one's purpose and for me, service to humanity through education and personal development is the path -- the soul purpose to live and master not only today, but for a lifetime.

The State of Philippine Justice System

Image source:  http://news.mb.com.ph/2017/02/07/senate-panels-begin-joint-public-hearing-on-death-penalty-bills/
The recent issue about the reinstatement of death penalty was brought up to legislative body and this has awaken the moral consciousness of the Filipino people who are in-favor and against capital punishment. The debate on death penalty is significant since it involve the present and future welfare of the Filipinos. We have been giving impulse statement or deepest insight as a symbol of freedom of expression on the moral and social implications of major decisions to be imposed for all Filipinos.

Our Nation's Justice System

Corruption is still evident in our political and justice system. Through the years, we have been dealing with corrupt practices of our leaders resulting to bad governance. Today, after many generation of living with a corrupt government, the justice system is still tainted with corruption issues and this has become a cancer of our society. In a country where the elite and rich are more powerful, only poor Filipinos are victims of injustice -- unfair judicial process. Those who have nothing can't stand up and speak up for themselves against opponents who have everything to escape from judicial execution. Unjust judicial system are in favor of them and the poor usually are the victims of oppression and impartiality of the judicial process.

Moral Dilemma 

Revival of the death penalty will only lead to a bigger problem. Our society will suffer from moral dilemma brought by corruption and loopholes on the judicial system. Those who are law offenders deserve some fair punishment through judicial trial once proven guilty. They are criminals, but they are also human being who happen to be directed to a wrong path in life. They can also be a victim of immorality and injustice and they have been trapped on this for years. Our society of millions of Roman Catholics believes on the teachings of the holy church. However, we are now becoming divided on this issue due to our spiritual disconnection. The recent War Against Drugs: A major Mistake  is brought by moral dilemma in our consciousness. We believe that man is good in nature, but we have become impatient and irrational on our social and spiritual beliefs. We have despised the church on their stand against any injustice and we ridicule our spiritual and political leaders who protects the moral and social welfare of everyone.

The root cause of crime

Solving root causes of heinous crimes must be the ultimate goal to accomplish. This will also correct impartiality in justice system. Everyone, rich or poor; old and young can commit a crime due to several circumstances. For instance, social justice is corrupted where equal opportunity is tarnished can lead to committing a crime. Poverty due to lack of resources and social services can lead to frustrations and faulty mindset leading to criminality. Most Filipinos are losing their moral and ethical values and that they're losing spirituality. The mindset that is corrupted with anger and vengeance will not correct our social problem, but it will only create a disastrous and chaotic society of lawless and violent citizens.

Some Filipinos are shouting for the revival of the death penalty due to conflict on their ethical and moral self . They have forgotten their spiritual nature of being a just and morally-upright human being. Most people are living in mental and spiritual torture carried away by lower emotions of hatred, anger, revenge and evil thoughts against humanity.

The problem with death penalty

Capital punishment is inhumane and immoral which is against the law of God and of man. We should not put criminal justice on our hands but it needs moral and just verdict in accordance with the rule of law and correct justice system. There is a need to cleanse the justice system to provide equal justice to all who have sinned against the law. We deserve social justice and as a civilized country, we must live according to moral and ethical decisions and actions. Our leaders must have a deeper insight on this issues and not for personal interests. Good governance is guided by right mindset and our leaders must be enlightened to speak for the welfare of all Filipinos. We don't want to see our leaders to be impatient, unjust and corrupt on their thoughts and actions. We must  choose to be on the bright side of life by helping people to regain themselves when they are lost and misguided.

A Moral and Just Society

Filipinos may be losing its identity and our leaders are becoming unjust, but we shouldn't give up on them. We have the obligation to speak up and remind them to practice good politics so we can achieve Good Governance Towards A Better Philippines. We deserve a nation that is lawful and morally-upright citizens and a government that will protect and win his people, not only today but for a lifetime. We will not give up on our nation that this will soon rise up to be a champion in human rights, human dignity and social justice.

Evolution of The Mind: Path Towards Right Consciousness

I was in mid 20s when I decided to live a different path of human consciousness. It's not an ordinary life where freedom is absolute, but it was a life full of challenges and sacrifices. At first it was not so easy until I have discovered my capabilities and unique qualities that are beyond the limits. I struggled... I endured the pain and I persevered the uncertainties that comes my way. During those times I have pondered on the meaning of my existence and my role in service to humanity and the world.

I am blessed with being born from a loving and supportive family. My parents have raised us well and able to send us to good school to get the right education that eventually gave us a comfortable life. My parents valued  the education of their children more than what they have accomplished. For them education is an opportunity to succeed in life; although it may not be a guarantee, still they pushed us to get the education that we wanted. 

I graduated with bachelor's degree in nursing and became a registered nurse. Back then, I was fully supported by my family for what I would become -- to live my life as a nurse. Perhaps I would have become a bedside nurse abroad and live a more comfortable life just like other Filipino nurses that are enjoying the greener pasture. But those were just a missed opportunity and a fantasy to my vivid imaginations. I did not become a  nurse and I remain to live in my country. It was a failure since the goal was not hit and it diverted my attention to other things that can satisfy my senses and provoke my creative imagination. I started to think and asked questions about the future. What do I want? What will I become?  I needed a rescue out of the blue. Clueless about the future, I couldn't  think but act like a happy go lucky; no destination ... nothing to see. It was dark and I needed a guiding light.

Mid 20s is when I started to rewire my inner dialogue. Connecting the missing link that helped me to regain my life for the greater opportunity. That was the time I entered an ashram. A school of initiation for higher consciousness. I developed several intelligence that are not attained by ordinary people not devoted to spiritual journey. It was in the ashram that I learned to become a trainer and a public speaker. I decided to improve my skills both intrapersonal and interpersonal and it led to a magical journey -- I couldn't believe the things that I am capable of doing. I envision to be the best version of my self, upgraded my skills and learned to decipher reality from obsolete beliefs. The learning was truly indispensable and that made me who I am today -- renewed and transformed. 


To evolve in consciousness is to change self-limiting beliefs and habits that doesn't give meaning to higher existence -- universal service through spirituality. I meditated, chanted and used special mantra to achieve sense of contentment and bliss. It changed my personality and reached certain level of maturity through service. It was then I have learned to appreciate the tagline "Live Your Greatest Life." I thought living a good life is just enough, but then to live one's life to the fullest is something that is more meaningful and substantial -- truly a spiritual bliss. Then, going beyond esoteric practice is "Serving Humanity and The World." It was the ultimate realization and fulfillment of my goals. I discovered to unleash my hidden potentials and increased my self-worth. I became stronger and firm with my philosophies and elevated my personality to connect with stronger souls. If I didn't, then I wouldn't survived from the start. My inner compass would have directed me towards the path. 

I traveled and lived in India for more than a year and reached out to different groups. I became one with the people. I dressed up and maybe started to sound like them too. I met various groups; from the elite families and well-known personalities down to the grassroots level of the society. The experience gave me serenity and sense of purpose. I gained wisdom from eastern philosophies with an integration of western practicality and that contributed to confidence in exoteric teachings. In India, I taught different subjects that are mostly of spiritual origin. It was very fulfilling and memorable. My greatest achievement would have been the construction of "Third Eye" which is spiritually guided. It was then I felt the Divine guidance that intervened my being. I feel empowered and did extraordinary things. My life back then  may not be a common path to some, but being enlightened to some degree gave me a better perspective about the kind of life that one must live. Service to humanity is truly a benchmark or man's existence. Service to improve their lives and for them to search for a brighter meaning of their so called 'dharma' or soul purpose. It was in India that I became a master of my own thinking. I challenge my own self based on my choices, and persuade others for what they believe in that's not aligned with the universal truth revealed in the ashram.

How could I thrive years of service when I started to bring back my old self? I strive to become better, yet couldn't see the light. Perhaps I challenged myself even more, then I realize that service to humanity is everywhere; in the community where we live in or in a place where life have brought us. Wherever we go is the place to leave a legacy. Maybe unknown to many, but popular to those whom we have touched lives. Our own 'dharma' is our legacy that is inherent to us. We may be wrong with our choices at times, but we can always choose to regain ourselves and become wiser and live a better life. We have been ridiculed, but our principles could help us to hit our target. There may be times when we no longer tune in to lower vibrations, yet we thrive to live an extraordinary life just like the old days -- deeper soul connection. 

Now that everything has change, I am still evolving towards the right path. I am still uncertain about the future, but with the evolution and integration of Divine energies, nothing can be greater than our renewed self. We continue to develop and we keep the spark to give some illumination to others. Our evolution will be for a lifetime and when the time comes that we need to look back to assess our old versions, then we can say that 'I did my best' and now  the path that I am taking is the path towards the right consciousness -- not from a selected group, but a universal consciousness that everyone deserves.
