The "Perfect" stranger

To the man that i never offered kindly when you are on the streets,
i could've given it to you for free,
but i was silently shocked at the moment.

Now i questioned myself,
why did ignore you,
It was just a cigarette which is all you need.
I don't pity you in fact for being frank,
I pity that the world do not understand you.

So, now you walk on the streets unaware and unguided,
you are harmless and polite.
Just your appearance in one feature in my life
made a difference to me the main character in my own story.

I am breaking down my thoughts now,
you gave me the chance to understand and search.

You are a perfect stranger,
you are not lost in your world,
you are not crazy as what they would say,
you are perfect in your way.

Love, Integrity, Relationships

Love

Don't pity those who love are not loved, but pity those who cannot love. 

Give glory to the people who can love and love unconditionally.

Integrity

Take responsibilities for your emotions.

Be honest with yourself while you amend the errors of the mind.

Relationship

It doesn't end, it never quite does.

It only evolves.

A Relationship from Within

On Saturday night, i attended a talk at Clove & Clive; a preview talk by a mentor named, Geraldine. I was prompted a question as well as other participants too. A question that i was never really asked before until that night- why do we need relationships? I like the fact that i was being asked that question because i found a little wisdom in it; I have never really stop to ponder on this or check back with my intentions so that I dont find myself caught in a web of unwanted situations. Throughout my journey, currently love, relationships and compassion has become quite an interesting topic in my phase (i call it phase / level become each time it gets harder as i learn from everyone around me as earth is my school and people are my teachers) and something i know i can begin to work on as it starts with me. Back; So when i was asked, the first thought that came to my mind was "to spend & share the rest of my life with someone".. but as i dwell deeper, breaking it down...another answer came in from pondering about what exactly is it that two people want from each other; hence my answer was "to fulfill each other's needs & wants".

My eyes are now opened i began to take note that this is happening in various forms of relationships such as work, families, friends, acquaintances and yes, strangers... i never noticed this before.

It began to dawn on me we are all naturally interdependent on one another, and i find that there is actually quite a beautiful act of compassion behind it. Some might disagree because the world has shaped and stereotyped for us that we should all be independent, and so individuals are trying to find various ways to fight for their independence in relationships, countries, etc.. But what if for once we change the way we see things? What if we try to see interdependence as a beautiful act of compassion instead of something that is struggled to obtain or acquire... another ponder; what is compassion?

The word compassion is commonly used, yet there is quite a profound meaning behind it which i think many have not realized it. Words are just words after all, but it is in the act that brings out the meaning of the word itself. I learned that the word compassion means "common passion". And so, it is easier said than done, but i find that not many, even myself, are able to practice it unless until we fully understand the act of unconditional love by understanding that you do not want the other person (enemy or friend) to suffer the same conditions or consequences because you have experienced it before. Again these are just my thoughts and my opinions...

Alone

Alone isn't loneliness.

It is a chance for realizations to happen.

To form new thoughts about true happiness, wholeness and wisdom when we spend time in silence.

Wonder

I wonder...


When it is full moon night,
I am engrossed at the very sight.

Wondering the illuminating light

that surrounds it, glowing bright.


Death comes easy,

like falling asleep.

Travelling into the light,

Who do you see and what can you touch?

So if you want to know,

give in, give in, don't fight.


Music heals your soul,

to read in between the lines.

Humming to the sweet rhythm that speaks to your heart,

only you and the singer understands it so.


Another day goes by
another hour not to waste.

Yet I still do,

am still learning, am still new.

Yet I know not pain or anger,

but illusion that is uncontrollable.


I was born of a white piece of paper,

the world splats ink and colours of all sorts.

I strive to give, give, give,

I also strive to take, take, take.

No i am not ungrateful,

i've learned; merely the ones who take have taken what they need.

And I have give, given to those who need or want,

I took, took what i deserve and what is given.


This is the way,

is this the way?

could it not be another way?

and i wonder, if there was another way, would i still be here?

So if there is another way, could this be a wrong way?

Or there is no right or wrong way?
Just things happen, happen for a reason.

A reason to happen, to let it happen for another reason.


And so I wonder...

Dewdrop of tears

I've got dewdrop of tears,

woken by a nightmare to stress & fear.

I've been managing with my self and I,

I thought you should know,

that it isn't really a pretty sight.


Dear Divine,

this dewdrop tears of mine.

tastes bitter this time,

Can I shout or cry? Is it a crime?


"Don't cry, don't die" said I,

"Don't ever give up, said I without a sigh.

Twas' not a dream but an inside voice,

Twas' that inside voice that won't tell lies.


Dear Divine,

listen to the trickling dewdrop tears of mine...

Help my self and I,

oh please if you may, oh please,

Please help me, this dewdrop tears of mine.

Dear Magdalene...

I have just purchased the Magdalene Oracle Cards by Toni Carmine Salerno. Thanks to Eva, my creative sensei; I have fallen in love with his intuitive paintings. I remember when i first laid eyes on them and held them in my hands during my first Card-Reading lessons; i was mesmerized his Universal Love cards. My first reading was to connect intuitively with the colours and read them.. it was kind of easy with Eva's cards because the artist's colours are very expressive.

As stated in my previous post, i decided to make one of it come true. Last week, i googled for the artist's website, and found a collection of his cards, books, paintings and more. The one that caught my eye was the Magdalene Oracle Cards (right). I was mesmerized again, it took my breath away. The same feeling came back again when I asked God to show me which Saint i should be named after. Twas' Mary Magdalene.. the intuitive, graceful, mysterious & creative Saint who was loved greatly by Jesus. I cried, i thanked God.. there were so many other names, yet it fell on this one. Means Repentance.

Twas' the same feeling I had when I saw a book called the Book of Mary Magdalene written by an inspiring author (sorry, cant remember her name). It was paradox!

So, even with this cards, i kept thinking about it. Its the same feeling everytime i see that name or hear it, or read it somewhere. Magdalene is mysterious to me, the name is magical to me...

I looked up in Malaysia and found Lightworks had it, emailed them, and turned out they only had ONE left. Twas' the Magdalene cards. There were alot of thinking, tossing, doubtfulness because I was worried about cash- but i thought of my creative advancement, and of course to make myself happy... so i purchased it.

Thank you Lightworks!

If you would like to know more about the cards or the artist, do click on the link below. You'd know why am I in love with the colours and paintings!

Indigo


Indigo,


My trouble-colour no more.


As I visualize you,


there I sit safely in your Indigo-pool.


Like soothing water flowing over me,


from above you reach into my soul,


and here on earth you connect with me.

Snippet of a Reminder

Have you experienced messages from beyond speaking to you through conversations with your friends, lyrics in songs or quotes from books?

I learned something very meaningful today, from someone wise.

This person said, "Asking for help does not mean physical support, but also setting your intentions to be uplifted by others so that you may learn more; let the universal forces do its work, and recognize doubts in our minds as just thoughts- you don't need to indulge them."

Duality

Dualistic wants non-dualistic, but still is dualistic.


Yet tries to walk and talk non-dualistic,


but still man-made dualistic.

I and Self

I is not my self,


but self is responsible for I.


though I can teach myself,


but self is a deep-rooted I.


I want to free my self,


therefore, only I can free my self.
