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.

Lesson from the One-Eye Cat

Everyone is a teacher. Let me rephrase that; everything is a teacher. That includes the animals, nature, things that move, things that still and the entire Universe. If we observe the surrounding, we will learn something from it. There is always a teacher present in our lives to teach us something about LIFE.

The One Eye Cat

The One Eye Cat

This morning I learned a lesson from a furry teacher. She’s a local cat known as Jessybell. Born with only one eye and adopted by packing department* team leader named Rebecca.

Although she is blind but she’s beautiful. She responds to English and Philippines language only.  She’s very active and playful. Yesterday I saw her chasing a plastic bag. This morning she was playing with a leaf. Something we can learn from her that physical imperfection never stop her from living a joyful life.

Pure joy exists when we go beyond the imperfection. See the imperfection through the acceptance will give us the perfection we have right now. Animal knows this.  Jessybell knows it too. It’s only we, the human being refuse to accept our imperfection.

Let’s learn the wisdom from Jessybell. You can have the joy eternally if you learn to see every imperfection through the eyes of acceptance and transmute it into perfection of JOY and LOVE.

Thank you Jessybell. We love you!

Note:
*I am currently being employed by a company in Brunei Darussalam to assist the entire team and to include the motivation factors in every area. I took this opportunity to expand my portfolio in motivation and healing, and also to share and expand the knowledge in management and human relationship and increase funding for Your Personal Motivator projects and programs.

I still provide consultations via online and by appointment. You can check out the details here. Consultation is now based on donation basis.  

How to Deal with Thoughts of Failure?

Go make mistakes today.

The first response you will get for yourself is FEAR. A sign your ego is at its defense ‘you cannot make mistakes because mistake is humiliating. You cannot fail because failure is humiliating’. Let the thought be. Acknowledge it but do not give energy to it. Do not analyze how far the future mistakes and failures would be. Don’t think further than the first thought.
This can stop the fear of failure from growing as a feeling, where it will let you sail with your unconscious belief that you can never achieve success in your life. If you sail together with these thoughts of failure far from your consciousness and far away from your awareness, you have already failed in reality.

Then make your first step, an opposite step of failure; a successful step. This is a crucial step because to do the opposite of failure is already a success. This success is far greater than the one you imagine would happen in the future because it heals the fear of failure in you in an instant. And because it increases your self-esteem one strength at the time.

Never fear failure because failure and success are equally divided. If you are making a success, you must expect failures. Likewise, if you are making failures, you must expect success. Both successes and failures draw each other closer. When you think of success, your mind draws the thought of failure too. When you think of failure, your mind draws the thought of success for you. It is not the success or failure that brings the fear in you but the conflict you have when these two entities draw each other. So it is important to aware that this is just your mind bring balance for you.

And for the third step, practice surrender. Sometimes thoughts can go wild on making you feel like a failure. Whatever you are thinking in your mind, ALWAYS trust your feeling, intuition, guts, God; that whatever failures you are experiencing, it is happening to MAKE YOU A SUCCESSFUL PERSON.

Now take a deep breath and get ready to make mistakes and face failures. Learn and forgive yourself along the journey. And see what is unfolding for you.

Light: Between Us and Sunlight

Do you know that Sunlight takes around 8 minutes 20 seconds to reach the Earth?
The truth is even the biggest source of lights take that long to spread its light to the planet, therefore our lights that reach peoples’ hearts might take longer than that. Be patience in spreading your love and lights to others.

The Two People Who Celebrate New Year

It’s officially the last day of 2012! I hope you do have a great year in 2012. Before you go out there tonight to celebrate the New Year, please read the entire article.

Now, do you realize that people who celebrate the New Year are categorized into two groups? The first one is those who just want to party (drinks, dance and things I shall not mention in here). The other one are those who sums up the life they have spent in the past 364 days in a moment before New Year.

Yes! The Question (as always), which one is you?

Although both categories seem similar in a way that both celebrate the New Year event, but there is one distinction; acknowledgement of successes they achieved throughout the year of 2012.

The first one spends the moments with the crowds, do what the crowds do and live life to the fullest for a few hours. They become happy because everybody around is happy. Some become happy because they get to drink and scream Happy New Year! And so the rest is unknown.

The second one spends the moments with one extra thing is the list; celebration of successes they achieved in the past 365 days. Yes they celebrate it and perhaps scream the same three words but they take a moment to acknowledge their self efforts in making their life better. The moment of acknowledgement always comes with gratitude, a key towards beautiful life. And so the rest is in the process of unfolding more beauties in life.

Understand these two groups, one wakes up in the morning living the same 1st January every year. The other one wakes up in the morning to a new life. If you may, be the one that wakes up to a new life.

If you have not achieved your dream in 2012, you can still celebrate one thing left: your awareness of transforming your life. Start with a question to yourself: Do you want to do the same thing in 2013, just like the 2012, 2011, 2010? Do you want to live the same year for 50 years? If you say yes, happy boring life to you.

Happy New Year 2013 to all of you; beautiful souls. Remember to rewards YOU for the successes and Thank YOU for the experiences you got into in 2012. May 2013 unfold the beauty of life to you.

Happy New Year 2013.

Happy New Year 2013.

The Reversi Game of Life

Life is always hard on us. I agree with the statement and many people do too. But why life is hard on us? If life is so beautiful, why life treats us ‘ugly’? The reason is; to teach us act the opposite acts. If you are:

  • Feeling weak; get up to prove your strengths.
  • Feeling lost; keep moving and ask for direction because new direction is unfolding before you.
  • Feeling empty; fill yourself with love. Not people. Certainly not any materials.
  • Feeling hatred; fill your own self with forgiveness.
  • Feeling lack;, fill yourself with gratitude.
  • Feeling busy; learn to manage time.
  • Emotionally mess; list it on paper. An act of listing ‘cure’ messiness.
  • Feeling sad; fill yourself with patience.
  • Feeling pain; allow healing to fill in.
  • Feeling darkness; learn to be the light.
  • Feeling tied up; learn to let-it-go.

Sometimes all we have to do is the opposite of what have been given to us. Just like the game called Reversi. When life turns into ‘black’, we have to turn it back into ‘white’ and win the game. By doing this, we are not only learning to survive but also learn the value of every act and situation we experienced. This is how to tell ourselves, our minds and our lives that we are getting better than good.

So whenever life is hard on you, please DO whatever it takes to live the life you DESIRE. You deserve it!

The Story about Me and Writing

Back in the 90s, I wrote short stories and poem because I loved it. And all the stuffs I wrote, I kept it in the drawers. Not many people know I wrote these stuffs except my beautiful niece. I wrote and I kept it. That’s it. I never get it published. My niece inspired me long time ago when she wrote same stuffs too and she got it published (if I’m not mistaken in local newspaper).

When I reached 18 years old, I stop writing. I wanted to believe that my passions are all about sciences. Dreams I dreamed mostly science related like I want to be an engineer or pharmacist. Of course none of these happened. I ended up earning income in the line of accounting (the subject I used to hate the most when I was in high school) for four years before pursuing the line of operations and managements in Logistic. All I have learned were numbers and people skills but none of these lead me to write.

Circa 2005, a friend of mine suggested I write drama script but I didn’t go for it. In 2008, I tried to write a blog but after few posts, I got bored. I don’t usually share about my life online. I prefer to write something inspiring or stories about love and life. But all I did was stop to write.

Two years later, when I realized that I got a lot to inspire people through writing, I decided to write again. This time, I narrowed down to motivation and personal growth. I’ve told myself after all the clues given to me from time to time, why should I stop? Equipped with motivation I had with me that time, I’ve told few people about my dream – to be a writer. Many disapproved because it is hard to make money through writing. Besides, my English is not that perfect. So I agree with them. Only this time, I decided not to stop.

Waves Lifestyle Magazine Sept-Oct 2012

Waves Lifestyle Magazine Sept-Oct 2012

One of my dreams is to get my articles or story published in magazine or newspaper. I approached this magazine (Waves Lifestyle Magazine) in 2011 but I didn’t get the shot. Later on, somewhere in August 2012, the editor of the magazine, Ms. Priya Manikam offered the opportunity for me to write motivation column for their magazine. She required a sample but I sent her two samples. Turned out, she loves both of it. She said (and I quoted);

“Your column is well liked by us. Keep staying inspired and take care”

Today, I received the hard-copy of the magazine and saw my first article titled: Inner Healing for Loneliness in page 36. After I took some photos, I walked to the book shelf and grabbed my journal. I flipped the page where I wrote Goals and Dreams to Achieve and checked off these two items:

Be a writer.
Publish articles in magazine/newspaper.

….And I’m glad I didn’t stop like I did before.

Lessons From The Ants

I was having my breakfast and I saw a small hole on the floor right next to my foot. I knew the hole is a door to the ants. They always come out through the hole whenever pieces of foods fall on the floor. Even tiny pieces of food will attract them to come out.

While looking down at the floor, an idea came into my mind. I grab a tiny piece of the food and place it on the floor. Then I started to clock the time and told myself “let’s see what the ants can teach us”.

  • In less than 5 second, an ant came out through the hole and went right to the food. Then it walked back to the surface of the hole and the second ant came out through the hole. Together they rushed to the food.
  • In less than 10 seconds, more than 5 ants came out and their sizes were bigger than the first ant.
  • In less than 10 minutes, the food was no longer on the floor, so does the ants.

Beautiful! I told myself. What are even more beautiful were the lessons they taught me yesterday. I’m going to share it with you and here are the lessons:

  1. When you see an opportunity, do not wait to grab the opportunity and never wait for the opportunity to come closer. The first ant took less than 5 seconds to get to the food.
  2. Sometimes in life you can never do things alone. Get help from the right people. The first ant got help from the second ant and the rest of the ants.
  3. Always work as team. Things get to be done faster when you work as a team.
    (Note: In terms of spirituality, consider these as your team: your mind, emotions, body and soul. Always make sure they are heading to the same direction as your purposes).

Here’s the picture of the team. Happy Learning to all of us!
