Happy Thanksgiving Month

4 Nov

To whom should we give thanks? Why should we give thanks? Due to busy things, sometimes people forget others unintentionally. Most of them focus on their studies, works, businesses, monies, families, friends, travels, shopping, pleasure and leisure. Why do people keep doing these things? What is their purpose in life?

Perhaps, some people are not aware about to whom they should give thanks. Sometimes, people forget that there is God who gave them life and everything that can supports life. Sometimes, people forget that they have their parents who provide them the opportunity to live. They have their parents who nurtured, taught and cared them. They have their families who loved them. Sometimes, people forget that they are supported by other agencies on their basics needs such as the school, church, government, health, agricultural, market and private sectors and so forth. Sometimes, people forget that they need good people around them like their relatives, close friends, nice neighbors and fellow workers. Sometimes, people forget that other living and non-living things helped them in order to survive longer.

All of these deserve to be recognized, appreciated and thanked for. We should thank them wholeheartedly and sincerely not only on Thanksgiving Day but in the whole year round.

Thoughts to Destination

29 Aug

Do you believe that what you think might lead to your destination? Maybe some of you will agree while others would disagree. Whether you believe it or not, sometimes it happens to you unconsciously. Yet, you do not know the reasons after all. Here are some points to explain it further.

Your thoughts

People have different thoughts. These thoughts are created and formulated in their minds based on how they perceive and interpret certain things by observation alone. Most of the people always suggest us to think positively in order to have a positive result. Some people are always thinking negatively in advance prior to what real or what it really happens.

Your frequent thoughts might be shown up in your emotions

People with positive thoughts all the time are mostly cheerful, happy, feel satisfied, excited, confident and hopeful. On the other hand, people with negative thoughts always are mostly angry, hate certain things, feel envy, stressed, frustrated, disappointed, sad, weak, depressed and sick.

Your strong emotions might be shown up in your actions

People that show strong emotions are obviously visible through their actions. Happy people excitedly share their experiences and thoughts. Hopeful people are usually go to their churches to pray and praise God for all the blessings they had received. While angry people have common enemies. They get easily irritated and do violent actions against their enemies. They usually used curse words against them. Stressed people wanted to be alone. They blame others for their own mistakes. They have no initiative to move or they act and move slowly. They easily get sick and fell unwell most of the time. They reason out illogically and do abrupt things disorderly.

Your visible actions might be shown up in your behaviors

People with repeatedly done actions repeatedly develop into habitual behaviors unconsciously and unintentionally. People who are doing right actions according to the norms of the society and laws of the land show appropriate behaviors in any place at any time.  On the other hand, people who are doing wrong actions most of the time show undesirable and unacceptable behaviors to the people living normally in the community with sets of standards norms, policies and laws.

 

Your shown behaviors might be developed into your characters

People with desirable or undesirable behaviors have distinct characters. People who follow laws and orders are distinctively obedient. People who are actively engaged in public service and ready to help others show kindness, friendliness, helpfulness, unselfishness, generosity, concern, love and care. On the other hand, people with undesirable behaviors are mostly disobedient, dishonest, disrespectful, stubborn, lazy, chaos, misbehaved, selfish, unfair, show jealous, envy, offensive, violent, illogical, fake, materialistic, dominant, fraud, abusive, aggressive and greed.

Your dominant characters might be shaped up into your personality

People with dominant, distinct characters develop into good or bad personality.  People with good personality are definitely liked by everybody. They are liked to be their friends, companions, business partners and even life-time partners at home. They like these people because there is no conflict in between them or issues arise among them. They live happily together with peace and harmony. On the other hand, people with bad personality are strongly disliked by anybody. They often hate these people. They do not want to see them. They do not want stay with them or even work with them. According to them, living with these bad people can make their lives miserable. Thus, they just want to escape from them as soon as possible.

Your type of personality might influence your decision

Good people or bad people have certain decision in life. The decision of the good people after thorough critical analysis on certain things relies absolutely on the welfare or benefits of everybody. They decide fairly, wisely and righteously. They consider Church teachings, state laws and rules of conduct, norms, environment, causes and effects, human rights and privileges in their decision-making process before giving the final decision. On the other hand, the decision of bad people depends on their own vested interest alone. They never mind other’s decision. Bad people discriminate and dominate them.

Your firm decision might lead into your purpose

People’s decision has its own purpose. For the welfare of the entire humanity is the purpose of the good people. The love of God, fellowmen and environment is the priority or primary concern of the good people. On the other hand, greed and power is the purpose of the bad people. They want to control everything including humans.

Your own purpose in life might lead towards your destination

People’s goals and objectives in life are counted and considered by either righteousness of God or deceiving-character of Evil. Indeed, good people once they died, their soul will surely go to heaven and sits beside the Lord. They will have eternal happiness and serenity. On the other hand, bad people once they died, their souls will surely proceed to the hell with the Devil. They will have everlasting sufferings and restlessness.

Thoughts to Destination

Therefore, what do you think now? Do you think positively or negatively? Whatever you are thinking every now and then, this might be your own destination later on. Just remember: “What you think is what your destination.”

What is life to you?

24 Apr

Life has several meanings to everyone.  Its meanings vary from one person to another. The lives of the newly born baby and the old-age grandmother are quite different from the lives of active and functional people.  Life is too short for persons who loved by their fellowmen. Life is too long for persons who were hated by their countrymen.  Life is beautiful for people who are experiencing prosperity, good health, massive wealth, unlimited power and influence. But to people with sickness and who are experiencing poverty, discrimination, inequality and unfair practices, life is miserable.

Life does not exist without the essentials elements that can sustain it.  The existence of life is the primary subject of human study of all time. Life creates a purpose.  This purpose serves as the framework of any living organism. Life has a beginning and an end.  The quality of life depends on its purpose.  Success in life does not rely on its length but rather on the quality of time and means on how they spend it.

Life is significantly meaningful if the person knows how to value it. People should know how to understand what life is. They should also know its origin and whom they owe it. They can reflect its possible positive or negative consequences in the near future.  Thus, whatever it is, what is really life to you?

The Beginning of an End

23 Mar

Graduation Day is a happy day

for students who are marching along the way.

Parents that are working in a distant away

get together with their children on this special day.

 

Witness with their friends, parents and teachers

have overcome their fears and bring their eyes in tears.

When the guest speaker delivers message on their ears,

they can really hear directly every statement that cares.

 

Graduation Day is not the end of everything

but rather the beginning step towards the best thing.

Neither power, prestige nor possession of materials things

that one should be prioritized or consider with people

but rather one’s skills and competencies are things

that be proud of and one learns how to show concern to all.

 

Inaro con Kayumanggi (My Brown Love) by Teofila Mas Meron

9 Mar

Colop coy mantibok, ampangisip-isip

Lawas yan ancasalak, balo cot anolis

Cabigan a calma, main acon nakit

Labas a ayos, balo cot mangitit.

 

Wamo no labas a lalaki

Anggano marublom, anlalako co siempre

Maco aco conan inaro con kayumanggi.

 

No laluma balo, anggano bulan

Makakyas, anlulbag a lalaman

Matuynong a punta, kae angonoron a dalan.

Cantan Sambali ni Nanay Openg

1 Sep

Naynay tana congco, lolo catatangis

No sicay cayna biyay a maisip-isip

Siay luwa sa mata mantulo mapilit

Bana sa labi mon bigla mon inalis

Ayte moyna kari, ayte mo inimbi

A pamilabi ta tan pamikawili

Hino ya cot orin  labas a babaye

A namiwan mon maigot nin labi

Mangibat sa wanin cakoyna mangoman

Makilabi-labi maparas manglingwan

Ta no maisip-isip tan mapapanumtuman

Siay luwa sa mata, permin  balayabay.

Mangibat sa wanin cayco na umanon

Makilabi-labin maganap a nakom

Ta no maisip-isip tan mapapanumtuman

Siay luwa sa mata, permi yan andaloy

Siay canakoman ko, alangan ya comon

Ta masubot abrian a buboy

Tagarilya dila, kulop kon man-goygoy

Sa calak-an moyo sa kongco mampangimaton

Cayco comon magwa, nacom koy masubot

Magcanta sa sayte, o campo nical ngod

Anggan cantan bungat, ambo nin maganos

Malayop a oras, caldungan kan say-ngot

Cayco comon magawa, nacom ko tan buboy

Umarap sa campo ta ambo marunong

Nakaragdag congko, nakapatpol nacom

Galang yay nanugo, wangcon balangunon.

Sin sicoy sinmiban a inalila la

Mangibat sinlumbit hilay nagpasensya

Lalo sin nilumwas lako a irap la

Lalo pamasuso tan pamiliwaliwa

Sa wanin balo ta sinmiban ako

Isugo lako wari cot kayko nin mako

Ta ibuyboy la kongco a pamasiban la

Kayco makabayar anggan sa angga

 

 

 

“Thanks God, I am still alive.”

15 Jul

Thanks God, I am still alive,
Coz I have the mission to survive,
And have the human rights for life.
They need my presence and tender, loving care,
Thus, they always ready to support my basic needs.

Thanks God, I am still alive,
To breathe the fresh air and hear the sound of the wind,
To see the raindrops falling on the green leaves,
To smell the favorite foods on the table,
And ready to eat fruits and drink milk any time.

Thanks God, I am still alive.
To hear the Holy Mass every Sunday,
To strengthen my faith on Him and receive His blessings,
To glorify and praise Him because of the wonderful things,
That He had given to me including my own life.
