These are collation of my opinions about various aspects in life. These were made from 2016 to 2018. Some does not reflect the present situation and maybe does not apply to current time.
just realized that language is not perfect and words are not understood as one.
A word spoken by one of two parties is not always understood by the other party
as what the first speaker thinks and meant to be. So do not assume. Always ask
if what she thinks is the same with yours. This is the right way to communicate
with each other to avoid conflict and misunderstanding. Clarifying things
sometimes lead to an argument. But make sure it is an healthy argument and both
of you are exercising patience and tolerance. An example of this is when my
wife ordered our house help to trim our yellow vines with beautiful flowers.
The helper went out and cut all the branches with yellow flowers. What remained
are the main vines that appeared nude and not attractive as before. This is the
image that entered her brain when she heard the word "trim" which is
in-congruent to what my wife's trim. Same word different images in the brain.”
"Sometimes the glaring truth hurts so much that people can not
accept it and reacts in various ways. Sometimes they are defensive and even
blame someone for what happened. Others react with fear and grief. Some uses
other people to side with them just to avoid the truth being exposed. Some
reacts with hopelessness and tears. Others cover up the truth and exposes only
the partial truth. Some are selfish and uses deception for a living. Whatever
your reaction to truth is; truth will remain and always be there and should be
accepted sooner or later."
What do kings and powerful men pursue throughout their lifetime? Is it more wealth, more power and influence or is it the everlasting life? Or is it something more than all the riches and pleasures on earth? Are we really free or are we all bound to a type of system that forces us to obey or be damned. Some people say that they have everything but they are still found wanting for more new achievements, adventures and pleasures of the senses. Through their way on top, they encounter more challenges and they have to "pay" for the consequences of their whims. They make sacrifice, step on and use other people even do inappropriate things just to reach their goal. At last when already there on the top they realize that they are lonely and feeling empty. Just like buying a new car. At first, the excitement is heigthened as you start to drive. You are very proud because it is the latest model and many people envy you; but as time passed, that excitement began to wane and the car becomes ordinary more so if you see another car of the latest model. The feeling of wanting is always there, we are never satisfied. This is true for almost everything including your career, business and family life. All things on earth are fleeting -- they fade away, We get old and we become weak in mind and body and everything becomes a thing of the past. Do we realize our great even complex efforts we have exerted just to reach the status we are in? Yet we could have focused on what we value and what we have and enjoy the moment. We could have made it so simple and still enjoy life for what it is.
you perceive of something is always subjective. It maybe the truth or it may be
an illusion or delusion. To be sure, it is better to verify first before
deciding or concluding on something. Sometimes our emotion on what we believe
leads us to pre-judged someone. You may think he is guilty by means of your
emotion and information (false and true) when in fact he is not. Your belief on
some may sometimes be affected by a propaganda - the deliberate manipulation of
the brain through emotion to obtain a biased result. The world is full of this.
Beware, take care and be cautious. You might be the next victim."
“The crucial question in federalism is: how
will you change the orientation or nature of Filipino voters to achieve
equality in the political arena? The present situation always indicate that the
candidate who can buy the people's vote with the highest amount always wins.
This of course is accompanied with traditional use of coercion supplemented
with guns and goons. If this issue is not settled or solved, our country will
continue to be divisive in nature and regions and provinces will compete with
each other resulting to more conflicts in their respective borders. If the people cannot elect a good representative, how can
their country have a full development of resources? Some say that only a dictator with selfless conviction to
change the country for the better will solve this problem. What is your opinion
“Culture is greatly influenced by a governing body. When
leaders show or practice disgraceful acts of corruption and deceit, it is
expected that the people will perceive it as a norm and it is okay to imitate
them. When it seems okay to plunder the wealth or resources of a nation and
deceive the people with endless promises of change and development. When they
engage in heinous crimes such as drugs, robbery and killings for the sake of
money and power without suffering from guilt and shame. When they get away from
it all with impunity and pride. All of these will be ingrained in the culture
of that nation and expect prosperity will be slow to many of its citizens as
compared to nations who value integrity with compassion and diligent to quality
of service and production.”
“Much have been done on the making, execution and enhancement of
political strategies to have a firm grip of the administration; but to the
detriment of key factors that really need focus and enduring support. Much
resources have been consumed in inappropriate ways that could have boosted the
morale, security and economic condition of ordinary people. One critical area
that needs focus and support is the justice system. Many people are aware or
have observed that our justice System lacks the facilities, logistics and manpower to properly bestow justice to people who needed it. Cases are pending too long in courts leading to the saying that; "justice delayed is justice denied". Not to mentioned that there are corrupt and biased judges who can be manipulated by money, political power and most of the time influenced by close relationship and friendship. Many citizens believe that our justice system only revolves around and only for the rich. If only they can concentrate on adding people with integrity; additional facilities like court rooms, proper penal colonies, rehabilitation centers and stringent monitoring and feedback system; many conflicts, problems involving society or the citizenry can be solved including most specifically the drug menace.
Movie Lines and "Hugot":
kailan tayo sa wakas ay nagkatagpo sa puso't isipan ay doon ko pa nalaman na
huli na. Isang pag-ibig na dumaan sa tamang oras at panahon pero hindi naging
tayo. Ngayon ang tamang oras at nasabi ko ang matagal ko nang kinikimkim at
totoong damdamin para sa iyo. Masakit malaman na hindi na ikaw para sa akin.
Gustuhin mo man o ako rin ay hindi na talaga pwede. Ang ating dating pagibig sa
isa't isa ay sadyang naging maling pag-ibig sa maling panahon. Hindi talaga
Ops,ops,ooops! bago kayo
mag-isip ng ano pa man. Ito ang konklusiyon sa pelikulang 100 Tula Para Kay
Estela. Tinamaan ka?”
(This is about my own interpretation of a movie line in 100 Poems for Estela. Two friends for a long time has not expressed their true emotion for each other. Until the woman fell for another guy and her friend finally found strength to say what is in his heart but its too late.)
"Bakit noong nakakakita ka Hindi mo ako makita pero nang mabulag ka
nakita mo ako?" Kailangan pa bang mabulag ka para mapabilang ako sa 'yong
mundo. Hindi mo lang alam at Hindi mo nararamdaman, narito lang ako sa iyong
tabi naghihintay na mapansin at pahalagahan mo. Kailangan ko pa bang pigain ang
aking diwa't isipan upang ang aking Marubdob na damdamin ang iyo mo rin madama
sa pamamagitan ng pagsulat ng 100 Tula? Naks! Epekto lang ng KitaKita at 100
Tula para kay Estela. Hehehe. Sumakay kayo no?
“What really is the purpose of life in this
worldly place. Not to live in excess in material things and humanly pleasure
nor be intoxicated with power and fame; and most of all not to live in
mediocrity. We live because we are made or programmed to strive for the highest
level - perfection. "Be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect".
The Olympic was organized to look for the best athlete and we attend College
and Post Grad. Courses to hone us mentally in the best possible way.
We kept striving to
develop ourselves in the aspects of: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual
in a balanced manner. We continue honing our skills in being patient and
disciplined. We always try to stick to well tested principles that would guide
us in our life's journey. The most important of all our aspirations in life
is to love and be loved unconditionally. When we achieved all of these, our
souls will lose the urge to return again to this worldly place. We prefer to
stay in heaven!”
“Many lives have been lived. Many various
experiences have passed. Many acquaintances and many faces have been felt and
seen. Many emotions happy and sad have been expressed. But all of them are now
memories of the past and they are fleeting. It would not be for long and even
the memories will be gone. A new life a new day all have been forgotten but the
ESSENCE of life is always there. Same feelings, there could be variations and
combinations but maybe same experiences. Life goes on and on and on. The cycle
of life must go on and on. Death is nothing at all but a repose.”
“Life is like a journey, sometimes there are rough and
difficult times but there are also light and joyful moments. From our
experiences we learn how to deal with our adversities and successes in life
together with people who love us as well as those who try us for what we are
really are made of.”
Agos Ng Buhay
“Sa aking paghihintay habang nakaupo sa isang sulok ng mall at ang aking asawa ay namimili sa grocery, napansin ko ang dami ng mga taong naglalakad paroon at parito. Iba't-ibang klase ng mga tao: may payat, may mataba, may maputi, may maitim, may matangkad, may pandak, may bata, may matanda at 'yong isang ale may karga pang sanggol.
Naisip ko tuloy na talagang nakakamangha ang Diyos na lumikha ng lahat ng ito. Iba't-ibang mga tao na may kanya-kanyang pag-iisip at ginagampanang papel sa buhay. May mga taong mayaman pero mababa naman ang pagtingin sa ibang mga tao pero meron din namang mapagkumbaba at mabait. Mayroon namang anak ng mayaman na hindi marunong tumayo sa sariling mga paa at maangas o mayabang na kayang gumawa ng hindi tama. May mga taong takot harapin ang hirap ng buhay kung walang mga taong tutulong sa kaniya. Dahil sa iba't-iba din ang karanasan ng mga tao, halimbawa, lumaki sa hirap at mapait na mga pangyayari, natuto ito na maging matapang at matatag sa pagharap kung ano mang ibigay ng buhay sa kaniya. Pero minsan may kaakibat ding hindi magandang epekto at ito ay ang kakulangan sa kakayahan niyang magmahal at mahalin. Nagiging "bato" sabi nga nila, matigas pero pilit itinatago o kinikimkim ang kahinaan sa takot na siya ay pagtawanan at lumabas na talunan. Ang iba naman ay tuluyang napapaso at nagpapadala sa agos ng buhay kung saan man sila dalhin o mapadpad. Nagiging lulong sa alak at ipinagbabawal na gamot at nakagagawa ng malagim na mga krimen tulad ng pag-patay, pagnanakaw, panghahalay at panglalamang sa walang kalaban-laban na mga nilalang.
Sa kabila ng lahat ng ito dapat nating tanggapin na talagang ganito ang buhay at matuto tayong harapin na may lakas ng loob sa tulong ng Maykapal ang bawat pagsubok na maaring sumubok sa atin. Siyanawa.”
“Ang buhay ay parang paaralan. Magsisimula ka sa pagkamusmos
ang isip kung baga nursery. Habang tumatanda natututo tayo ng iba't ibang
bagay. Yan ang Grades 1-8 hanggang high school. Kung matanda na at marami nang
karanasan at karunungan, yan ang college o post graduate. Ito ang layunin ng
buhay natin sa mundo: ang matuto, magmahal at mahalin at maging perpekto kung
maari kagaya ng lumikha sa atin. Kung hindi ka matutong magmahal ng tunay at
tapat para ka na ring naiwan sa elementarya. Tandaan mo, maraming kahulugan ang
pagmamahal. Maaring para sa iyo yan ang tamang pagmamahal pero hindi pala dahil
ang taong iyong "minamahal" sa katunayan ay nasasakal.”
“It is nice to have
someone whom you can share your life with. Someone who could give you strength
when you're down and weary. Someone who can inspire and motivate you to achieve
something more than the ordinary.
Someone who accepts you as you are and not according to her whims and ambition.
Someone who will be there whenever, wherever, whatever, however and loves you
for better or for worse.”
“When you feel that your burden is too much to
bear and it seems that no one is beside to comfort you. This is the time to
realize that the power of the Almighty is much greater than anything else. This
is the time when you should surrender everything to the Lord for He is the rightful
owner and creator of all things and that includes your thinking and emotions.
Don't bear the burden, lift it up unto Him and feel that you are important and
ready to perform things that will glorify Him. Feel light and free.”
“The world is filled with consciousness but each one is typically unique from one another. I am sure that all of these consciousness comes from only one source; and that is from the -- DIVINE!”

It has been quite a while that I have been thinking how calcium
carbonate reacts with other substances in the stomach. This is relevant to me
because as a dialysis patient it has been quite a while that I have been taking
calcium carbonate 500 mg. tablet as a phosphate binder to control my serum
phosphorus since excess phosphorus cannot anymore be excreted through my
damaged kidneys. Phosphorus that build up inside my body is very toxic and
makes my skin to itch and is very irritating to a great extent. Until I chanced to read what am I looking for in the box of Calcium Carbonate that I bought. I finally learned that calcium carbonate when it reaches the stomach reacts with the gastric juice particularly the Hydro-Chloric Acid or HCL. That is why Calcium Carbonate is also a good antacid. As the Calcium Carbonate travels along the small intestine, an estimated 15 percent Calcium of the 500 mg. Calcium Carbonate is absorbed through the blood stream and the remaining 85 percent is reconverted to Calcium Carbonate and other insoluble salt like Calcium Phosphate which are excreted together with the stool. So in order to be effective Phophate binder, the Calcium Carbonate 500 mg. tablet should be taken with meals so that the Calcium could bind to the Phoporus content of what you have eaten. That's it the chemical reaction that I have been looking is eventually revealed.
“Scientists say that the Universe started with the "Big Bang".
The question is what is happening BEFORE the great explosion? Scientists
theorized that time does not exist before the Big Bang" and started from a
certain point where you can say that nothing exists since time does not exist.
The question again is where did this starting point came from? It is too
complex for any person to fully understand;. Even the geniuses could not
mathematically compute this phenomenon because all came from the greatest of
all and we are nothing compared to -- The DIVINE! Do not be proud for you own
