Just A Thought...and A Real One!

Have you ever noticed a puddle of water on the street?...

Its usually pretty nasty. You are not generally moved to go over there and take a sip from it. I think we have a primal understanding that water that is not flowing is bad water. You are much more likely to drink from a flowing stream than a puddle of water on the side of the road.

I sort of equate the idea of flowing water to being "alive" and living. When something is dead, it no longer moves and no longer serves a function in the cycle of the system. When something dies, it becomes debris that needs to be washed away so that it can become part of the cycle again.

Circulation of money works in this same principle noh? We want an economy where the money moves around and generates a healthy flow. Japan had been in trouble a few years ago because people would store a lot of money in savings and then never spend it. Its economy wasn't flowing.. its flow hindered by the hoarding of money into private stockpiles. thus the value of money really lies in rate of flow of its movement from one party to another. The money itself has no intrinsic value, however, the ability of money to facilitate transations and exchanges is why it is valuable to us.

So then i would conclude, your money is only as valuable as you manage and use it because simply having a lot of it doesn't do you a lot of good unless you are using it wisely. In the same way, I could apply this analogy to life and emotional patterns. if you do the same exact thing for your entire life, then it gets stale and boring. We may not notice this because of our greed to hoard more and more stuff narrows our vision. Maybe first i do business to make money to have a better lifestyle, but then out of greed I start to just make more money to make more money. Or maybe i could be someone who wants to be liked by others so I direct my life in a way that so that i surround myself with peole that say "yes" to me all the time. (FYI I'm not really talking about myself here! just making theoretical points about the power of greed in our lives).

However, those who live more rewarding lives are people who stay aware of the greater flow around them, and move with it. Even if we are so busy running around, do we stop to notice we are running around in a circle? We create the illusion for ourselves that we must be going somewhere because we are running so fast and we can feel the wind blowing on our faces. I then take a step back and give myself a reality check to see if in fact, i'm just running around in a circle.

In a way that's sort of like moving around but not really going anywhere. Not quite as bad as stagnant water, but its pretty much the same thing. Its time for me to stop treading water, and start swimming for real.

Unresolved Issue

Yeah, so I'll post tonight instead of tomorrow morning at work, as I have stuff I should do right when I get to work. Bleh.

I'm tired of a dark cloud hanging over me; I feel like I've moved on very far from a month ago, and even further than 2 months ago, but I feel stagnant and unable to move any more because of this dark cloud. As if I have gone as far as I can in this storm, and I just want out of it and onto those sunnier times, hopefully with you as a small part of my life.

This unresolved friendship--the anger, the mistrust, the communication issues, the hurt, the pain, among other things--where your friendship was in my heart, now is loneliness and nothingness that will always be there while you are away. I know we can do better than we did; we know what worked and what didn't; we both allow me to build that trust. I won't disappoint you. I know I've said this all before, I just need to get it off my chest occasionally, so to the two of you that read (and obviously not the ones that need this), thanks for putting up with that paragraph. hehe

Current Mood: Happy, but sick of the rain from this f-ing dark cloud

My Thoughts about TOMORROW...

Tomorrow is Not Promised... Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they are meant to be there. They serve some sort of purpose, or help figure out who you are and who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be; your neighbor, a child, long lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger who, when you lock eyes with them you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way. And sometimes things happen to you and at the time they seem painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles. You would have never realized your potential strength, will power, or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity. All occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whether they be events, illnesses, or relationships life would be like a smoothly paved straight flat road to nowhere, safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life. And the successes and downfalls you experience create who you are and even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart? If someone loves you love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening up your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them. Make every day count; Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can For you may never be able to experience it again.

Talk to people you have never talked to before and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love. Break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself. For if you don't believe in yourself, no one will believe in you either. You can make of your life, anything you wish.

Create your own life And then go out and live in it live each day as if it were your last Tomorrow...

D'AUDITOR's of Philippine Charity Foundation

Today I just recieved a sms message saying:

"D'AUDITOR's of Philippine Charity Foundation nform u dat ur Celfon no. Won Php950,000.00 2nd prize Winner draw last: AUG/03/07 Pls Call Me Now I'm ATTY.JOEY G. CHUA"


I called them because I thought it was just friends of mine who are just picking on me. But when I spoke to a person she sounded like she was someone who never knew English can be a second language and she was telling me that the ATTY. Chua guy was on a board meeting.

I asked her if they had a website where I can check about their foundation. All she said was "Philippine Charity Foundation".
I then checked out there was no such thing as a foundation listed on that name.

So to all of you out there... Here's what I have to say... Who ever thought of the name "D'AUDITOR's Philippine Charity Foundation". Honey... he must be really tacky and ugly. Imagine giving a name D'AUDITOR's... Darling if your reading this get a secretary who can speak English at least just to cover up for your tacky name. Period! Over and Out!

Now It's Your Turn

When Peter Pan saw Tinkerbell again after quite some time, he asked "Why did you have to go away for so long?"

Tinkerbell replied: "YOU NEVER GAVE ME A REASON TO COME BACK. I was always there when you needed me.. But i guess you never showed how important I am to your life.. NOW IT'S DIFFERENT, AND NOW WE'VE CHANGED... BUT I'M STILL SMILING..."

Peter pan then asked her why?

Tinkerbell replied: "I myself don't know the reason. It's just that now... IT'S YOUR TURN TO MISS ME..."
