Trust Yourself

Trust is not easy. I’m not talking about trusting people. In fact, we trust people way too easy than trusting ourselves.

Trust ourselves first. Trust the sacredness of our Self. Trust the silent Soul within us. Trust our instinct and intuition. Trust our genetics. Trust our bloods and heartbeat. Trust every breath we inhale and exhale. Trust the fear and love we feel. Trust the anxiety that pushing us to wake up. Trust the pain that is screaming. Trust the healing that is flowing, that light is shining.

Trust is not easy. It was taken away from us for many centuries.

Trust is a practise. Trust is about surrendering to Life; even if our shadows shout and scares us with doubts and pain.

Trust that we are here to be different. Trust is the only way to begin.

Most of the Time

I wanna wrap today’s experience in four words – Most of the Time.

Most of the time, we have no clue of our potentials.
Most of the time, we ignore our birthrights.
Most of the time, we are confused and in doubts with our existence.
Most of the time, we chase the reflection of others.
Most of the time, we look at the shadows and say “that’s who I am”.
Most of the time, it gives us anxiety and stress and depression.
Most of the time, we are unseen, unrecognised.
Most of the time, we have no clue why we are here.
Most of the time, we lost our way in this so called Life.

Most-of-the-time shall STOP now.

Story of a Chair

Everything that we see in this Life has a story. If we listen and acknowledge their presence, we might know what lies underneath their surface. This is a story of a chair.

The chair that you see in the picture has many stories of love, joy, sadness and pain. That beautiful chair used to be a seating place for an old man who had dementia. A lady who witnessed fragments of his life told me “That’s where my master used to sit”. A visitor who saw the chair said: “It’s for the King”. And each story has values.

If the chair could speak, it will speak a language of Love. It probably says “Sit with me so I can fulfil my purpose as a chair”. It would welcome anyone to fill its purpose. And it will listen to all of our stories of joy, love and pain; without judgement. That’s a pure Love.

These days I sit on it and observe the world out there.

All Life has a story. All Life has something to share. And all stories has values to be acknowledged. The stories will be told in many ways. We just need to listen to them.

 

Can we know ourselves through Emptiness?

Emptiness; we always perceived it as pain. Perhaps what we really feel is an unknown feeling to the mind. It is a void that we never explore. And often we fill the void with something or someone. After all, Emptiness is designed to motivate us to seek for something or somebody to fill the space. With Emptiness, we desire for the Wholeness.

We never actually explore Emptiness and understand it for what it Is.

What if Emptiness is an unknown that has many potentials to grasp?

What if Emptiness is not a pain but a sense of longing for Oneness?

What if Emptiness is our formless side that we never get to know?

What if Emptiness is a magnet that pulls us on the right path?

What if Emptiness is an indicator that Life is changing the course?

What happens if we embrace Emptiness like embrace Love?

Can we know ourselves through Emptiness? If Emptiness made us seek for external fulfilment, it could also make us look for inner fulfilment. Why not try to sit with the feeling and find out what it wants us to explore?

Why do We Need to be Conscious of Our Emotions?

Emotions are a new form of Awareness. With emotions, we become aware of vibration and waves of Life. Emotional Awareness is powerful because when we feel emotions, it is the entire body feeling it.

While Mental Awareness gives us a sense of understanding and reflection of Life, Emotional Awareness gives us moments of Life as a human. We are not entirely complete until we acknowledge our feelings.

Have you notice this? Try to feel Love and our bodies want to dance or kiss. Try to feel hate, and our bodies want to destroy whatever that we hate.

When we become aware of our emotions, Life becomes more colourful, and our sense of connection with Life becomes more vivid. Emotional Awareness also opens the door of Acceptance of ourselves and others.

Be conscious of emotions will take us to understand all spectrum of emotions. With understanding, we will know why there are hatred and compassion swing on the same momentum, and why sadness and happiness are the same peak and valley.

This, That and the Truth

In all experiences, in every story we encounter, there are three sides of it; This, That and Truth. We often fall for either This or That. The moment we pick side, we are moving away from the Truth.

The three sides of Life not only apply outside of us. What if, picking side even about ourselves can drag us away from knowing our inner Truth?

Ponder on this. Why many people feel torn apart? It is because we are This moment who longing for That moment. We pick sides and we pick which experiences to live and which to deny.

What if, every experiences offer us revelation about ourselves?, but it need us to stop choosing sides and just Be with the experiences.

What if, even sadness or Anxiety or hatred or grief can reveal our Inner Truth if we choose to be with it without judgement?

Pain, The Greatest Teacher Part 1 & 2

Recently I spoke to my editor from The Iskandarian/WAVES Lifestyle newspaper about turning my articles into audio materials. The idea is to cater people who prefer listening than reading. Furthermore, I have many articles from past years that is still useful for the audiences. And she gave me the green light to start the project. 
 
The articles are short. The published articles contain about 300 to 310 words, and the audio comes with three minutes video. So I geared up yesterday for recording and editing. And today I have two videos to share.
 
My first pick is articles (two parts) about Pain, The Greatest Teacher. No one likes pain. However, if we are willing to acknowledge our pain and be with it, the pain we feel can teach us many things about ourselves and Life. 
 
Remember that even pain has a quality, and the quality of the pain depends on the quality of observer. 
 
Enjoy the videos.

Do What We LOVE!

Work is also a prayer, not in the form of words but actions. When we love what we do, the doing become a meditation, the mind becomes creative, and the body become joyful.

But when we do not love the work we do, then the prayer is filled with un-love energies, the action is not powerful, and the body becomes weak and ill.

Do what you love. Start with that. Then the doing becomes natural and full of Love. It is one way to cherish yourself and honour your purposes. And through the doing, you get to share your deepest Love with the world.

Are You in an Abusive Relationship?

Here’s what you need to know. People who are stuck in an abusive relationship are not stupid. Abusive is not just an act but also a chain of energy.

I wrote two articles about it and focused on the energetic level and explained why abusive relationships are challenging to get rid, and how to shift our awareness about it.

This Is My Story of LOVE

This is about Love and me and how I view Love differently now.

I was a different person seven years ago, and far way different 10 to 15 years ago. But the essence of who I Am is the same. Deep inside I could feel the same Me. That makes me realised that I Am the same Love. The only different now is I let Love express with freedom.

I used to be afraid to say ‘I Love You’ because I thought ‘I Love You’ means a commitment between two people. I hardly say it to my late dad. I felt awkward. Few hours before he passed away, he stared at me. That look was different, and it came from deep inside of him. I stared at him, but I didn’t even say ‘I Love You‘. It was Love looking at Love, but I never learn to say it.

That Awkwardness Shouldn’t Happen to My Mother.

I didn’t do it consciously. I just felt the need to express love to her without fear being judged (mostly by myself…didn’t we all judge ourselves?). So I said a lot of Love to my late mom years before she passed away. Nights after nights of “Good night Mom, I Love You”, that Love changed her and me. Few days before she passed away, we spoke only Love. She said, “I Miss You”. That was her last words and that was good enough to keep me going knowing she is loved.

And that was a long time ago. And I never stop learning to Love even though I had to go through moments of Tough Love. I guess I’m lucky because Universe sent me people who have already tasted the higher Love to assist me in discovering the essence of Love I had within me.

It took seven years to be our New Self entirely, so they said.

And as I live LBe The Love And Peaceove, I realised that Love can be so different, and it comes in so many forms. First I felt is about me and my feeling. Then Love goes deeper into my cells. It brought up all kind of pain so I could Love my body, my being and my Soul. Then Love appeared in the sounds of birds, in the movement of winds, in the colours of plants, in the silence of the night. Now I feel it in every breath. And it is still unfolding to me with wonders and beauty.

And whatever that I’m describing Love through my experiences can only be so limited because I had put words on it. So please don’t take everything I wrote here as ‘that’s all about Love‘. Love is more than the words I shared with you. Nevertheless, I hope the sharing could expand a little bit of our awareness towards Love.

Love Is…

Unconditional.

It feels higher. It is more fluid, gentle and peace. I remember looking into someone’s eyes and I felt suspended between knowing and unknowing. That’s Love recognising Love. It is for Self, everyone and everything. I now could easily say I Love You to anyone who needs it. I love saying it to animals, to plants…to the Moon, the Stars, the Sun…to anything. I said it to the pain I felt. Commitment doesn’t bother me anymore because this Love has no sensation of lust, ownership, guilt or shame.

Just so you know, Love heals! It healed me. It can heal you. But first, you have to allow yourself to be Loved; by YOU, by the Universe, by anyone and anything without judgement. Let go that old belief about I Love You. Accept it unconditionally. And never give up on Love.

Then learn to Love yourself. Learn to be YOU. Love is Your Self. Be that Love and spread it to the world.

Good night Beautiful Souls. It’s 11.50pm in the other side of the world.
I Love You, whoever you are, wherever you are!
