The New Filpino Writings of Jonathan Aquino
"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."~Buddha
"I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe."~Dalai Lama
"There's no rule, no law, no regulation that says you can't come back. So I have every right to come back."~Lance Armstrong
"Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature."~Marilyn Monroe
"The two worst strategic mistakes to make are acting prematurely and letting an opportunity slip; to avoid this, the warrior treats each situation as if it were unique and never resorts to formulae, recipes or other people's opinions."~Paulo Coelho
“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” ~Robert Fulghum All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” ~Victor Hugo
From Johnnybee:“You deaf or something?” she roared.“Ah, yeah, look who’s talking, yo!”said Blue, gesturing hiphop.I looked – glared – at him again."Hey you!” the Ice Queen was jabbing her finger at my left nipple.I looked back at her. “She can’t see us, Johnnybee,” White said. I looked at him in wonder.“STOP SPINNING YOUR HEAD LIKE A FREAKING ROOSTER!” screamed the Ice Queen.
From A Thousand Summers:"I was sitting on the lifeboats at the top deck as the ship began to move. No money can buy my joy. White foams around us, the water churns as we head to the open sea. A short while later, I was at the highest point in front, the sea breeze embracing me like a lover, unseen lands beckoning. I knew then, with absolute certainty, that I would spend the rest of my life this way."
From The Shepard’s Wife to the Nymph in Shibumi:Birds will sing madrigals and shepherds will lieWith a honey tongue full of whiskey and rye;One May morning my lawyer will make the moveIf you live with him and be his love...
Huggybear's Corner is the first anthology of my inspirational and eclectic magazine articles, all published in major magazines and newspapers. These stories on spiritual growth, the triumph of the human spirit and a mind-blowing range of other subjects are crafted to stand the test of time.
I have changed the title of Huggybear's Corner to The Way To Inner Peace. I have also changed the title of Shibumi to A Child of A Lesser God
I looked at the pile of books for a while, going into a heightened state of awareness. I then reached out and allowed the right ones to find me. I just knew that I was then ready for whatever will come. I found three books that I feel perfectly symbolizes who I am and what I have become at this stage of my spiritual journey. They are about angels, healing and ancient secrets of wisdom.
My fifth book, A Wonderful World, was published three days ago. It is inspired by Leo Buscaglia's Zen-themed The Way of The Bull and Paulo Coehlo's mystical Like A Flowing River. Yet after all is said and done, my book is my own voice, authentic and original. It comes from my heart and soul.
