A week ago, I was meeting with a couple of good people for a business initiative. Lasted quite longer than we expected. As we were wrapping things up, someone asked me some questions about Christianity. I’ll have to admit that I struggled in answering his questions. It’s been a very long time since someone talked … More Of Doubts and Rainbows: A Long Confession
Before you read any further, let me warn you that I am a person who likes to read a lot, and asks questions a lot. Chances are, your church leader will discourage you from reading this. To be honest, I don’t have a clear answer to the question asked above (I already gave away the … More Did God Really Appoint Duterte?
I like my job. Here I met many people who are like me in many ways: eccentric, contemplative, creative, and dynamic. Okay, not many of them are. But I am really overwhelmed by the curious fact that many of my workmates are left-handed, just like me. Statistically speaking, there are only about 10% of the … More Contemplations on Avalon
I want to make it my goal for this year to finish Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace; I have been procrastinating for far too long, and I would never be able to forgive myself if I forfeited the opportunity to read such a great book. Today, I read something which made me do a quick … More And words are all I have.

And it has less to do with what we should do, and more with what we should become, or rather, to recreate. I would like to focus on old-age issues which have a lot … More The Wounded Masculine Heart
I’ve been wanting to die for a long time now. Not that I am confessing of having suicidal thoughts — I’m not. Neither do I think those thoughts. However, one need not look very far to see how messed up our world is. And it would not serve anyone by turning a blind eye to … More Longings for the New World
Today, I’m expecting to stay awake for another 18 hours or so. This has become my norm since I started working at this company. I’m still adjusting to the work environment, but my greatest hurdle is waking up at 4 or 5am and arriving home at about 10pm. I’m staying at my brother’s house, and … More Little Blessings
I never wanted to write about this subject. Not through this medium. Not at this time. However, I am convinced that I somehow need to share my view on this sooner or later. So why not now? Eight years ago, I was studying to become a nurse. I was a very conceited person back then … More Hyper-Graced
Indeed, for us to treat money rightly, we have to first get our thinking correctly. Most of us fall into the trap thinking that money is an end, when it is only one of the means that God uses to accomplish his purpose. Also, money is one of the surest way to reveal a person’s real personality, as well as the god he serves. … More Poor in Spirit
