My Vision of Tomorrow

Saturday Stories August 26, 2017

I see a future where all those who are power are worthy of it. Perhaps I may not live to see it through my physical eyes, but there also won't be those who create a culture of impunity with their utter disregard for due process and the rule of law, who ignite the fires of racism and hatred by their isolationist and divisive rhetoric, and who are pushing the entire planet to the brink of a nuclear holocaust.
I see a future where the protection of Mother Nature is more important than any profit to be gained by exploiting and eventually destroying her, where people can create their own decent livelihood by providing service to the public without being blackmailed and shut down by corrupt government agencies, where people would finally stop trying to dominate and exterminate their fellowmen in the name of religion.
I affirm a future so beautiful that words cannot describe it because I understand the laws of the universe. We attract what we focus on. T…

The Rainbow Colors of Life

Saturday Stories August 19, 2017

One of the countless things I'm grateful for is having an authentic sense of self-worth. The mere fact that I exist, as I learned from my nonphysical teachers Abraham and Bashar, means that I'm inherently worthy in the eyes of Creation.
Having said that, I also accept that I live in a society surrounded by people who are better than I, some because they really are in any given outer aspect, and some because they want to feel they are better than everybody else just so they can feel good about themselves. I'm perfectly fine with that since I don't feel inferior anyway. What is even more significant is that I don't feel the need to bring other people down to raise myself.
You can spot the insecure a mile away. These are the racists, bullies, gossipers, paranoids, bureaucrats, power-trippers, back-fighters, the self-righteous, the people who spread malice and intrigue. A person who is far from alignment from is true being has an unsta…

Where You Are Is Not Who You Are

Saturday Stories August 12, 2017

The subjects of food, diet and weight came up while talking with a friend earlier this week. I told her there's no need to feel self-conscious since nobody notices anybody anyway – because everybody is looking at their cellphones.
I gave her an analogy as a way of sharing my own perspective. This is what I said:
Let's say, coming from here, you are going to up north to Bantayan Island. Naturally, you would eventually find yourself in one of the towns along the way, say, Danao.
Do you say "Oh, I'm here: this is my life! There's a cow crossing the road and blocking the bus because God is punishing me. I'm beside a stranger because this is my karma. I'm in this place because this is who I am!"
No, you don't say that. Why? Because you know you are just traveling. Where you are at any given time is just a place you're passing through.
Yet that is precisely what most people do. They take a snapshot of a moment and …

We Are Spiritual Beings

Saturday Stories August 5, 2017

Just when I thought that things just couldn't possibly be better because of the incredible events of the past few months, I got blown away from the avalanche of wonderful new things during the past week alone.
I actually forgot all about Facebook.
Wednesday was a touchstone in my professional career and my love life (which I never share with the public), and then culminating in a poignant yet happy dream about someone who was close to me who had died that same night.
Then came Thursday and Friday when I'm completely offline and out of the loop. In other words, those are the days where I cease to exist.
I came back online earlier after a week. There was some news that seems to represent the full spectrum of human emotions.
One is a distinction. One is about a promise to keep. And one is the news about the death of an aunt who has been a like a mother to me.
It was a reminder of how beautiful life is precisely because of its fragility, and it…
