The deeper your scars, the more room there is to fill them up with love. Don’t hate your scars, appreciate their depth. – Daniel Chidiac
I haven’t been updating this blog much. How great was the vision I had about having blog before I actually started it. I’m paying for this blog, doesn’t feel good to leave it like this. Every time I go online, nothing else than scrolling Facebook. Anyway these days, I’m less on Facebook and being on Twitter instead.
One of the Facebook page that I have liked is Mark Brown, owned by Mark Brown himself posting inspirational stuff based on Christianity teachings. Recently, he posted…
Karl Pillemer of Cornell University interviewed nearly 1500 people age 70 to 100+ for his book “30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans.” He asked them what life lessons they’d pass on.
The single standout piece of advice these amazing people gave was:
Do not stay in a job you dislike.
You should ask yourself this: Do I wake up in the morning looking forward to work? If you don’t, then maybe it is time to search for what you really want to do.
First of all, I can’t deny the advise applies to me as well, but it’s not easy to get job. Most people carry on with the job they don’t like because they have to, they could not pick or choose the ones they like. Lucky are those that landed on their dream job or job that they love.
Confucius have said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” That’s so lovely, but how about getting it? Not as easy as saying it. I definitely would have asked that to Confucius if had the chance. Haha.
Since the day I started working, I always wanted to do something else but up until today, I haven’t figure it out yet. Sometimes you want something out of this life but you just don’t know what it is. All you feel is, this isn’t all that you need to remain with.
I’m not being materialistic, I’m talking about having satisfaction, much like how Steve Jobs put it with “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.”
It’s May 1st today, known as the Labor Day. Hope all employers appreciate their employees, as Plato said it, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” For employees, when you wake to go work, remember some don’t have one to wake up for. That applies to students too. :)
If you sense there must be more, there is more. – Alan Cohen
Do you ever wish you had a second chance to meet someone again for the first time? … I do. Always. :)
Life’s full of choices and sometimes, with all the voices in my head, it’s really hard to make one. Sometimes, we have only one choice that which we have to take. Anyway, the thing is, after we made the choice, it turns around and make us…
Alright, here’s to the end of Diwali holidays. Besides celebrating it, I was just spending time reading book – “Heaven Is For Real.”
Recently, I’ve been having interest in the subject of afterlife. It’s the subject that which scientist doesn’t have an answer. No one knows until they die and if they die, they won’t be around to give reports. Haha. So the question has been: Do we go to Heaven? Does Hell exist? Or do we get reincarnated?
We have plenty of reports on people having near-death experiences (NDE) in which they reached Heaven and Hell. At the same time, we have people that claims able to recall their past lives. Some religion believes in Heaven and Hell meanwhile there are religions that believes in reincarnation. All led us to contradicting facts.
While I was researching on the Internet, I came across excerpts of the book “Heaven Is For Real.” Upon reading the excerpts online, I decided to get the book. The book is about young boy named Colton Burpo, had NDE during his surgery and had a visit to Heaven.
The family didn’t know whether to believe or not but afterwards, the evidence was clear enough and the facts given by Colton in line with the Bible. It also matched with Akiane Kramarik’s painting “Prince of Peace: Depiction of Jesus Christ.” Akiane Kramarik at the age of four had vivid visions of Heaven, Jesus and Angels. Later, she painted picture of Jesus Christ. After Colton saw the painting, he exclaimed it is the most accurate look of Jesus Christ.
Further summary of the book from Amazon: Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “reaaally big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us. Told by the father (Todd Burpo), but often in Colton’s own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.
While spending the holiday reading this book, I hardly could put it down because the way it inspires the reader to continue reading. It is simple, easy to understand and great book for whoever needs encouragement in their faith. The story goes as per Christian belief (the Holy Bible). Although I’m Hindu, I’m glad I read this book.
Todd Burpo and his family was going through hard time and at the end of it, came blessing. God gave their almost four years old son visit into Heaven, an afterlife place for those who believed in Him. Those insights Colton had at Heaven are revealed little by little and profoundly.
Well, that’s all about this book. We will be sure of Heaven or is it reincarnation once we get there. Haha. Or maybe a chance like Colton had but for adults like us, I doubt for that. It is clearly stated by Jesus, “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.”
Those that reads this book would know what they can look forward to, provided the content of this book is genuine. I’m still curious if anyone that haven’t completely dead could enter place of afterlife worlds. As the Bible also stated, “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
Sonja: Do you remember the hospital, Colton?
Colton: Yes, mommy, I remember. That’s where the angels sang to me.
As we know, its already November 2012. Starting wasn’t so good, so hope it gets better and ends well, with all the things around before the end of the year.
I’m going to be 23 in few days and before that, will be having Diwali festival. Going to have few days holiday – for sure it will end fast and then it will be quite long for the next one and yet when it comes, feels like its been so fast. =.=’

And for all the other things I want to do and complete.
