WFTH Part 9: Awakening of the heart's eye [12 Jul 2009|05:05pm]
[ mood | pensive ]

She's seriously messed up, but he loves her anyway.

I've seen some films recently, that have made me think of the nature of love. Master Shakespeare had it right when he said it was as unwavering as a star at night. Because even through the roughest of storms, it will guide us to do what must be done. We may be tossed about, and even lost at sea, but love is there to guide us. Though sometimes cloudy skies make us lose sight of that star.

But don't get me wrong, I'm not just referring to romantic love. I talk about love in general. Love for family, a friend, a lover...and even our enemies. The opposite of love is not hate, it is apathy. Hate is just love gone cold.

Films, and what I've realized:
Love Story
Love means never having to say you're sorry. (see my entry)

Legends of the Fall
No matter what wrongs may have been done to us by those we love, in the end we will still love them.

Love In The Time of Cholera
The tide of time will never wash away true love.

What Dreams May Come
A man would search the depths of hell, and choose to stay there, just to be with the woman he loves.

"Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering."

Don't know who said it, but it's worth remembering. =)

of pure love and the ego [27 Jun 2009|11:12pm]
[ mood | thoughtful ]

Love Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry
by Barbara Rose

The title of this article is fully credited to Erich Segal, who wrote the phenomenal movie "Love Story" back in 1970.

Since that time, I have always wondered what that statement truly meant. Now, 34 years later, I understand.

True love is unconditional. It is transparent, where we can accept, understand, and allow the other person to make every mistake, falter, stumble, and give genuine heartfelt compassion when they are trying their best, even if their best is can be "better."

Love carries no judgment or manipulation. Love carries no ego, or the need for ego gratification. True love is pure. It is deep, eternal, and it never dies.

There may come a time when you have to be apart from someone you truly love in your heart. Please realize that sometimes time alone is the greatest gift you can give to another. Sometimes our ego's "want" more, and sometimes our ego's "avoid" love. These are the ego's delusions. They are not, however, the pure love that resides within our deepest heart and soul.

I learned that "forgiveness" can be replaced with compassionate understanding. When we truly understand, there is not an ego need for a formal apology. When we love purely, there is not an ego need, period. There is only compassion and understanding. What we "want" and "deserve" may come from both ego and self-value. Certainly we all deserve pure love. However, to receive it, we have to first learn how to give it – first to ourselves, and then to another.

"Never having to say you're sorry" means that you know you are loved truly for who you are. You are accepted. In order to give this kind of love to someone else, we first have to love and accept ourselves with the utmost loving compassion, understanding, and carry zero self-judgment.

As we peel the layers of ego away, along with self-protective walls, egoic responses, and manipulation of Self to be what we think we need to be in order to be loved and accepted, it is then that we can love someone else purely. This takes great conscious effort, and the desire to grow to become so pure and heart centered, that the ego melts away.

When this happens, we know we are loved by Self in the most genuine manner, and then we will also know that we are ready to give such a pure, unconditional love to someone else.

We can understand mistakes. We can understand growth. We can understand time spent apart means that time is needed in order to grow.

When you love someone, you know in your heart that your love never died. You feel their presence in your heart, even if they are out of your life. Sometimes, we may not always get what we "want" in life, however, we will always get what we need in order to grow. We may not consciously ask for certain situations, but on a soul level, we brought them into our lives in order to heal, grow and learn what pure love is truly all about.

Can you understand that you have always done the best job you knew how to do at any particular time with the knowledge and level of growth you had at that time? Yes? Good! Now, you can extend that same understanding to the other person from your heart, and that is why you will not require them to say: "I'm sorry." You will understand, and they will understand. It is that pure understanding that allows what may have bruised our ego to melt away. Once our fears and ego are out of the way, we truly can love purely. You will never have to say you're sorry to someone you truly love that genuinely loves you. You will only have to be yourself – that is all you will ever need to do.

spread the word [20 Jun 2009|07:29pm]

If you are reading this right now, you have more luxury than someone in Iran could ever hope for right now. If you are watching TV or a video on youtube, updating your status on Facebook, Tweeting, or even texting your friend, you are lucky. If you are safe in your home, and were able to sleep last night without the sounds of screaming from the rooftops, you need to know and understand what is happening to people just like you in Iran right now.

They are not the enemy. They are a people whose election has been stolen. For the first time in a long time, a voice for change struck the youth of Iran, just as it did for many people in the United States only seven months ago. Hossein Mousavi gained the support of millions of people in Iran as a Presidential candidate. He stands for progressiveness. He supports good relations with the West, and the rest of the world. He is supported with fervor as he challenges the oppressive regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

On Friday, millions of people waited for hours in line to vote in Iran's Presidential election. Later that night, as votes came in, Mousavi was alerted that he was winning by a two-thirds margin. Then there was a change. Suddenly, it was Ahmadinejad who had 68% of the vote - in areas which have been firmly against his political party, he overwhelmingly won. Within three hours, millions of votes were supposedly counted - the victor was Ahmadinejad. Immediately fraud was suspected - there was no way he could have won by this great a margin with such oppposition. Since then, reports have been coming in of burned ballots, or in some cases numbers being given without any being counted at all. None of this is confirmed, but what happened next seems to do the trick.

The people of Iran took the streets and rooftops. They shout "Death to the dictator" and "Allah o akbar." They join together to protest. Peacefully. The police attack some, but they stay strong. Riots happen, and the shouting continues all night. Text messaging was disabled, as was satellite, and websites which can spread information such as Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and the BBC are blocked in the country. At five in the morning, Arabic speaking soldiers (the people of Iran speak Farsi) stormed a university in the capital city of Tehran. While sleeping in their dormitories, five students were killed. Others were wounded. These soldiers are thought to have been brought in by Ahmadinejad from Lebanon. Today, 192 of the university's faculty have resigned in protest.

Mousavi requested that the government allow a peaceful rally to occur this morning - the request was denied. Many thought that it would not happen. Nevertheless, first a few thousand people showed up in the streets of Tehran. At this point, it is estimated that 1 to 2 million people were there. Mousavi spoke on the top of a car. The police stood by. For a few hours, everything was peaceful. Right now, the same cannot be said. Reports of injuries, shootings, and killings are flooding the internet. Twitter has been an invaluable source - those in Iran who still know how to access it are updating regularly with picture evidence. People are being brutally beaten. Tonight will be another night without rest for so many in Iran no older than I am. Tonight there is a Green Revolution.

August 8, 2008, 12:00 midnight


Word spreads around fast and almost everyone has already heard about what happened to our dear friend, Tara Santelices (Assumption Antipolo’s Batch 2003 and Ateneo de Manila University’s Class of 2007, AB Political Science).

On the eve of her 23rd birthday, Tara was shot in the head during a hold-up while riding a jeepney along Imelda Avenue, Cainta, Rizal. Joee Mejias, who was with her at that time, rushed her to Amang Rodriguez Memorial Hospital in Marikina City. The parents of Tara and Joee arrived at the hospital shortly thereafter. When morning came, Tara’s parents finally decided to transfer her to the Medical City, Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City. Since 8:00am of August 6, Tara has been in the ICU fighting for her dear life. Her parents have decided not to push through with the operation.

Although it might seem that there is nothing else that we can do but wait for Tara to wake up from this horrific nightmare, we, the friends of Tara, have decided to raise funds for Tara’s hospital bills. This is the least we can do to ease the unbearable pain her family is going through. We have been given the go-signal from Tara’s dad, Tito Larry, and here are the details:

The temporary bank account is under Anne Marie F. Santelices, Banco de Oro, SA 2140-062201. For direct cash donations, please proceed to the ICU Waiting Room of the Medical City (Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City). Please look for Joee Mejias or Lila Santelices.

Any amount will be gratefully accepted. Anonymous donations are also welcome. Please spread the word. Forward this to your family, friends and even to everyone else you know. Please post this on Friendster, Multiply, Facebook and wherever else you can think of. Please send group messages on Yahoo Messenger. This will mean so much to us, her friends.

Please continue praying for Tara, for Joee and for both of their families. If you want to come see Tara, visiting hours at the ICU are at 9:00 am to 11:00 am and 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

Thank you so much for your time and kind consideration.

For inquiries, please contact Joee Mejias (09228154987) for calls and Jac Ledonio (09167243071) or Myka Francisco (09163695148) for text messages.

Congratulations Batch 2008!

Yesterday was both happy and sad for all of us. After 4 or 5 years of stress, sleepless nights, blood and tears, we are free. But that also means saying goodbye to all the laughter, smiles and people that made all the bad things bearable.

And now, now I feel so numb. It's like things haven't sunk in yet. The fact that I won't be seeing so many of my friends (old and new) on a regular basis is what's been bugging me. I'm going to miss so many people. ='( T_T

One In A Million

How did I get here?
I turned around and there you were
I didn't think twice or rationalize
Cause somehow I knew
That there was more than just chemistry
I mean I knew you were kind of into me
But I figured it's too good to be true

I said pinch me where's the catch this time
Can't find a single cloud in the sky
Help me before I get used to this guy

They say that good things take time
But really great things happen in a blink of an eye
Thought the chances to meet somebody like you
Were a million to one
I can't believe it (oh whoa)
You're one in a million
All this time I was looking for love
Try to make things work
They weren't good enough 'til
I thought I'm through, said I'm done
And stumbled into the arms of the one

You making me laugh about the silliest stuff
Said that I'm your diamond in the rough
When I'm mad at you
You come with your velvet touch

Can't believe that I'm so lucky
I have never felt so happy
Every time I see that sparkle in your eyes

They say that good things take time
But really great things happen in a blink of an eye
Thought the chances to meet somebody like you
Were a million to one
I can't believe it (oh whoa)
You're one in a million
(yeah yea)

On 29 March 2008 the Philippines will join countries around the world as we literally "turn the lights out" for Earth Hour - an event that will fuel awareness on climate change and prove that when the people of the world work together, they can make a difference in the fight against global warming. Earth Hour will take place throughout the Philippines from 8 to 9 in the evening on Saturday night, 29 March 2008. WWF invites you to participate by shutting off lights for 60 minutes, organizing your own "lights-out" event or by forwarding this mail to your friends, workmates and family.
