Offering Love-Wisdom

"We are constantly changing each other's lives, every hour, minute and seconds spent in a conversation. Live with it in the now, and offer love-wisdom to one another. Share words through inquiries and realizations. Embrace the magic of communication and lives could be changing right now as we speak."
-SL. 27.6.12

Whenever I meet a good friend over a meal, being girls as we are, we would engage in topics, and most of the time are really enlightening ones. Sometimes about life, about relationships, about work... and whether the other person across the table realizes or not, but I noticed that each time I have a conversation with a friend, I leave the table thinking. And here I realized that when engaging in a conversation, it is the most insightful energy shared between friends. You learned something each time, and that means the words you share are so important because it could just change lives so easily. Here i have also learned that living in the now would help exchange wisdom. Perhaps maybe your friend's life could change after that.

*Dedicated to a special friend, whom I'd like to call my little sister- Michelle Teng. Who helped me to help each other grow wiser together each day into womanhood. My heart also goes out to my other girl friends; we have touched each other's lives each time we meet over lunch.

Within my space

I have often wondered to myself, if given a hypothetical scenario; would it be natural if I confront a person who is causing trouble to others, or if I approach a person who is in trouble without the person requesting for help?...or would it be unnatural if I just be and observe from afar and not interfering with what ever that is going on in that person's space?...I have often reminded myself this, whether I may be right or not, that if I approach the person causing or experiencing trouble, I think that I might be interfering with the natural experience the person might be experiencing. And since there is much more cause and effect rather than right or not, I probably would be altering the effect of the experience one is encountering or need to encounter if I do step in. So, question here is, would it be cruel to not take action when you witness a trouble? Still, in our complicated human world, some feel the need to do something about it because they feel a sense of protectiveness or responsibility. Some were also told to be ignorants for not doing something bout it. Nonetheless, it would be necessary to always check with our intentions first before we proceed to take the next step. Perhaps that must've been how the phrase begun "it's not my place to speak or do..." because really...sometimes the best thing to do is to just be.

Working in and out

To attempt not feeling hurt inwardly, is to blame the outside. Yet, to blame the outside, would also mean failing to work inwardly. Failing to work inwardly would lead to feeling hurt within again. The answer would probably be best to understand the cause of the situation, and effect from the cause. Thus, working inwardly and outwardly, then to just let it go with forgiveness, and to just be, with love.

Cheek to Cheek

 "...If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also..." Matthew 5: 38-42

To offer your other cheek to be slapped is not giving in, but metaphorically means to offer loving-kindness continuously with understanding & awareness to the one who is unaware; to put an end to a vicious cycle so that it would not continue to propel into another negative experience again and again. -SL. 13.06.12

In Silence

Silent; seen as lack of self-esteem,
Silence as a sign of intelligence.
Silent; seen as lack of stance,
Silence as a sign of observation.

Silent; seen as timid,
Silence as a sign of boldness.
Silent; seen as opinion-less,
Silence as a sign of reflection.

Silent; seen as ignorant,
Silence as a sign of awareness.
Silent; seen as frustration,
but Silence as a sign of Love & Truth.
