Promise Me

Promise me,
promise me this day,
promise me now,
while the sun is overhead exactly at the zenith,
promise me:

Even as they strike you down with a mountain of hatred and violence;
even as they step on you and crush you like a worm,
even as they dismember and disembowel you,
remember, brother,

Man is not our enemy.

The only thing worthy of you is compassion -
invincible, limitless, unconditional.
Hatred will never let you face the beast in man.

One day, when you face this beast alone,
with your courage intact, your eyes kind, untroubled
(even as no one sees them),
out of your smile
will bloom a flower.

And those who love you will behold you
across the thousand worlds of birth and death.

Alone again,
I will go on with bent head,
knowing all love has become eternal.
On the long, rough road,
the sun and the moon will continue to shine.

My youngest sister who's 12 just told me that my blog was too emo. I quote:

"Why your blog so emo wan? So full of poetry and emo-ness... Write something more positive la! And change your layout - so boring wan..."


This coming from my lil sis? Eh sis, give koko a break lah - I'm mostly bright and happy throughout the day, so need a place to pen down my rare emo moments ma... =P

Alright... Alright... Positiveness coming soon.

Touching God

God is available to us
twenty-four hours a day.
God is happiness.
God is peace.

Why do we not enjoy God?
Because we are not free.

Our mind is not there.
We are constantly distracted,
by worries, by thoughts.
We lose our capacity of touching God,
or of enjoying Him or Her.

Free yourself.
Be aware.
Be mindful.
Be present.

Everything you need or want
is already there,
has always been there.
for you.

It's NOW

"To meditate does not mean to fight with a problem.
To meditate means to observe.
Your smile proves it.
It proves that you are being gentle with yourself,
that the sun of awareness is shining in you,
that you have control of your situation.
You are yourself,
and you have acquired some peace."
~ Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh
