Floating to Unity

This is my shot and if you can ignore the exit sign at the back, it will make me fell a lot better.

Getting to the mood, have you felt the floating feeling? The liberation of being free, sans regard as the French says, to do without regards. Fleeting with flow where the wave of current takes you. No use to struggle, why bother? Its nice to go along where life carries you. But then to where, there will be time this scene agrees with you then again there will be a stage when it does not. When doesn’t it agree with you, to be floating and carefree? I want that!

And I do have the answer. The stage when you dont want to be free and floating is when the tide brings you further away from your group, your family, friends and the community. The place that makes you YOU! It’s the place where you are already expressing yourself and the community knows you and loves you irregardless. So you say there’s limitation to your freedom, then take it in stages. There’s nothing big that couldn’t be broken if you started little 😉

So go float, float into unity. Fun begins in numbers!

“Learn to Weep” – Pope Francis

Standard

I was chatting with my best friend and was solicited with advice,  with me feeling tired and melancholy, it hit home. The story goes, It was her birthday when she paid a visit to University of Sto. Thomas, her alma mater, to witness the visit of Pope Francis in the Philippines. She was moved by the whole experience, just by being there.

There was an encounter between Pope Francis and a child where the child asked why God let bad things happen to innocent children. Quoting his response from the heart came “Only when the heart is able to ask the question and weep can we understand something.”

Whenever something bad happens in our lives we seek advise, people who console us until we feel better or found justification to the mortifying feeling we are experiencing. There are tag replies to, say, a loss of a love one, e.g. ‘We are destined to be gone, its just time is the essence.’ For me, when I had lost my loved one, I cried not because they are gone but because I don’t know how to survive without them. I’ll be lost.

Learn how to weep, cry with your heart for after the tears all will be clear.

Hmmm, food for thought, quite a chunk. We always get inspirational quotes, motivational speeches and encouraging dialogues that moves us forward for whatever decision we have to make. Accepting a promotion, becoming a parent, getting married, that sort of life altering decision in life.

We need that, aware or not, that is one factor why we go ahead with a decision, when we get told to. I always had qualms, and most of the time my mind is made up but I just can’t go ahead sometimes, specially if it concerns other people’s welfare, I need an accomplice.

 

In my life, I always had my mentor, Pascale, she’s different from me like night and day, that was the first day I met her. She was my mentor, financial manager, for 10 years and had been the greatest motivator in my life. She never really told me what to do but she makes me ‘say’ what I want to do. She narrows everything down that made me select the best answer like a quiz. For the last 14 months I haven’t seen her yet as we are continents away. She made me believe and she made me who I am. She was and is the friend, adviser, boss, logical judge and french connoisseur, best I ever had. Thankful for the lessons given. The best advise she gave me was, I am great and I should believe I am. There is no better person who could think less or more of you than yourself.

 

Merci beaucoup Madame! Gros Bisous!
