Heart's Desire: Living A Fantastic Life





There are times when life gives us a sweet taste of beautiful experiences.Oftentimes, life may also give a bitter taste of painful memories. However, we reminisce both the sweetness and bitterness that haunts us; our thoughts and emotions that will either make or break us.

When tough time comes, we challenge ourselves to overcome it. We are creating an emotional shield as a protective defense not to become broken; but to shed the light of love to ourselves and to others. We activate the internal light to guide us when we are lost and to be redirected towards the path of righteousness.

Our memories are a collection of beautiful experiences that will uplift us when things aren't right. Whereas, our miseries can teach us to become tough when we are halfway through... but a fading light. We are crafted by our imagination and desires that can spark greater force of illumined self for the greater good and a better life.

Today, we are are directing our self based on the principles we inherit. We go on when we are certain and without hesitation; we pause for awhile and ponder when it seem to be doubtful. We continue to seek validation despite of fully knowing ourselves, "are we good enough or is it just enough?"

As we continue the journey, we are "Following Our Heart's Desire" and we are molded through life's hopelessness and challenges; turning miseries to bliss. The peak of temporary happiness is when we surpass the valley of tears; a cycle of life that is never-ending; always temporary but have a joyous end.

Our destiny is always unknown to us. However, a Divinely-inspired being will arise in us, sharing a light of hope to some and enlightenment to many... only then it is rightful to live in comfort and living  a charming life we deserve to be.

Stars of the Galaxy: Reliving the Magical Moments


Sometimes in our lives we reminisce wonderful moments that once have made us feel good about ourselves. We enjoyed those moments that have captivated our imaginations and desires. We cherished the times when we feel ignited by our passion and aspirations. We feel great about ourselves and we strive to show our best self.

Today, we live and create our own reality; our version of life that guides our destiny. It's not just a dream, but to rekindle moments that will launch us to our destination -- our future success. We create a roadmap to guide us along the way; not to be overwhelmed by circumstances, but to regain ourselves when we brave the stormy seas.

Our journey to success would always depend on how much power we unleash in ourselves. Once the untapped energy is activated, it will be ever ready to launch us to something unimaginable. You may not believe at first, but those dreams and desires are becoming closer to reality -- your magical journey.

Oftentimes, we meet uncontrollable circumstances to challenge us; to make or break; to test... Our unwavering faith would build a solid rock; to strengthen the core. And when the rough time comes, our best defense would be on hand; fierce and mighty, ready to knock out and bounce back to reality.

On the way to the peak are hills and valleys that often gets unnoticed to many; with disregard to the hidden struggles and dreaded misery. Others see the hollowness that breaks easily, though the barrier is still unbreakable to set you free -- you become a winner and will always be.

Our commitment to excellence is like a bow and arrow. It will uplift our standards and eventually prove our worth, not to others, but to oneself. Whereas, our goal to hit the target is like a compass. It will guide us towards the right path. We might get lost, but we can be sure to regain our life and follow the guiding light.

Celebrating the Feast of Sto. Niño 2016



On this day we celebrate the feast of the Child Jesus all over the Philippines. It has been part of our culture and tradition that we venerate on the holy image since it was brought over by Spaniards in our country. Since then, Filipinos would embrace Christianity and become our way of life.

The feast of Santo Niño is one of the most celebrated event in the Philippines and millions of devotees all over the archipelago would join activities in honor of Him. From the oldest city of Cebu and the busy streets of Manila, the festivity is alive; it is vibrant, colorful and full of energy.

Today I was able to witness how we celebrate this famous religious event. Thousands of people participated on the parade as they march to the beat of the drums. The long procession was full of energy as they carry the holy image while waving it on the air. Some holy images are uniquely dressed to portray different occupations like policeman, nurse, doctor and others. This concept has been a tradition among the faithful who believes that it will bring blessings to them and guide their living.

The feast of Santo Niño de Tondo 2013 was memorable to me as I personally experienced a crowd of devotees as they celebrate the mass and have their holy image blessed with a holy water. I made a sacrifice of falling in line to reach the top of the church in Tondo, Manila where the holy image of Santo Niño is placed. To touch the holy image and say a prayer is  a symbol of faith and devotion -- faith that is unique among us and would forever be observed with our grateful heart. 

The Holy Child Jesus in his image we call as Santo Niño reminds us of innocence and vigor. When we were young, we have full of wonders and we have  genuine happiness; we are robust and truly present. We don't mind about negativity and we feel that we are being guided. Just like Santo Niño, it reflects the child within us. Our humility, graciousness and innocence leads us to live a positive life despite the struggles and challenges we are going through.

It is with our faith that we learn to be strong and keep on moving forward. The strong Divine force -- our God is there to watch over and guide us. When we are fearful, we turn to become fearless. When we are weak, we develop strength; and when we are about to quit, we suddenly hold on and keep the faith.
