Give..

Read this wonderful insight from an unknown philosopher..napakaganda! Isapuso natin at tignan kung ano ang pupuede magawa nito sa buhay natin:

When we have trouble with the people in our life, it is almost always because we dont want to give them something. The giving does not necessarily mean material things. It means we dont want to give them a genuine acknowledgment of their being, their position, their understanding. We hold back, because we tell ourselves that they dont deserve it, or that we will lose something by acknowledging them for something, or we insist on seeing the shallowest part of their character, refusing to see the darkness, ignorance, confusion or suffering that lies behind it. In short, we judge, and when we cannot give, we are the ones who suffer the most from this psychic blockage. In giving, we can lose nothing, except the limitations of our personal sense of self.

Farewell Pope John Paul II...

"It is love which converts hearts and gives peace"

It is your Holiness, John Paul's words resonated through the square when an archbishop read his text prepared for the Sunday after Easter... Many wept when the words were read.

That is the time, my Brothers, when he is already in the state of pain, that lead to his passing yesterday...

We may never really know who is Pope John Paul, but his example, his mission, his love to all people will forever be remembered in our hearts...
Let us all join in prayer for our Pope, and let us strive to follow his good example...
Truly, it is painful for most of us, but at the same time, I feel happy that he deserves his rest, to be with our Creator, for he already gave his 26 and more years of his life, as servant to our Dear Lord and for the people all over the world...
"Pope John Paul II, farewell! and Congratulations to a wonderful Journey with our Dear Father! Thank you very much!"
