The question that wasn’t answered.
May 7, 2011

Pilate asks Jesus “What is Truth?” Jesus answers Pilate’s question with silence.

I always find this fascinating. Did his silence mean that the Truth was out there for us to find? Or did it mean that there is no Truth after all, but mere perceptions? Well, we are to ask ourselves and others the same question. What is Truth? Is it something that has been proved? But then, simply because it hasn’t been proved to be true, doesn’t mean it isn’t the Truth. And yet, again, when I use the word “Truth”, I ask myself again and again what Pilate asked Jesus. And again and again, I answer myself in silence. By remaining in the Darkness, the Silence, are we lying to ourselves? Are we in a cage, not knowing all the time that we have the key? We may never know the Truth, never. Maybe we will eventually come to know that we’ve been lied to all our lives when we cross over to the other side. So, till I finally know what the Truth is, and whether it really exists, I will answer the question in silence. But this time, it will mean that I’m waiting to realize that the key is still in my hands.

In our darkest hour
February 26, 2011

“When the world comes to an end, this is what shall be played. Mankind, for a brief second will as one, look to the heavens. Some will pray, some will sing, others will hold the one they love, but for a single second in time we, as one will unite under the banner of stars that surround us. 12 billion eyes will focus, 12 billion eyes shall close and for eternity we shall be known as a mankind that when in our darkest hour we could become one and accept our place, but as one mind, one body one soul”

RaiFukuMaru

I found this comment on a video by Paul Collier on YouTube. I was deeply moved by Paul’s music. People think of making money in as many ways as possible, have a Lamborghini, A million $$ to spend and stuff like that. But what if in a while, all that’s never going to matter? What if the world is going to end tomorrow? Will the money matter anymore? Will the Lamborghini matter anymore?

If the world is going to end tomorrow, I shall remember what a random person in the world said. Though I’ve spoken against mankind many times in the past, when I read what Raifukumaru said, it wasn’t hard for me to imagine mankind joining their hands as one in their darkest hour, being there for each other , looking up at the sky. Though we’re born as one, and die as one, in that one last moment, what better way to die than to die knowing that 12 billion hands are holding yours. And what better way to die than to die knowing that “mankind that when in its darkest hour  could become one and accept its place, but as one mind, one body one soul”

And I’ll say to myself, “I’ve had one hell of a ride.”

Turn back the hands of Time
February 20, 2011

If I could turn back the hands of time, would I change anything? People always think of what they would do if they could go back in Time. What if they do? I always question myself. Would that change anything? Would that make a difference in my Life? Would it change the way I live? To be honest, if I could turn back the hands of time, I’d do a lot of things I couldn’t do at that particular moment. The thing is, I don’t want to. I guess that’s what makes us human. I guess that’s what makes us only human. Listening to R.Kelly’s “If I could turn back the hands of time” and I was just wondering “What if I could really change something in the past?” and I already knew the answer. If I really want to change something in the past, I need not travel back in time. I would change it now .


Co-Incidences?
February 20, 2011

Topic by Daily Post :

Co-Incidences. I don’t know why its so hard for me to believe in co-incidences. Confuses me too. What if there are no co-incidences? What if everything happens for a reason?

What if what we see in plain sight isn’t the whole picture? What if there’s a bigger plan behind each and every thing we do, each and every decision we make, each and every step we take? After a quiet time with myself, I realize that though this is the most confusing part of Life for me, it is also the part of Life that is the least confusing. It is easy to believe that there are no co-incidences, but no proof to back it up. Maybe I don’t need any. Maybe even that’s a part of a bigger plan taking shape. My purpose in Life has still not unfolded. But maybe when it will, I will have the answer. Maybe when it will, I will understand what I’ve been living this Life for.

Smile
February 20, 2011

Topic by Daily Post :

When I’m feeling down and sad, I always listen to Michael Jackson’s “Smile”. Hats off to Charles Chaplin for writing such a beautiful song. I can honestly say that this is one song that makes me smile and cry at the same time. Songs like these have become quite rare in the music industry these days. Apart from a few good artists, what we hear today is computerized, studio-magicked, artificial voice stuff that makes one wonder whether you’re hearing the artist or the computer speaking. Coming back to the song, it always reminds me that I have more reasons to smile than reasons I have to cry. And I think that very few songs have that impact on you. They speak straight to your soul.

Smile, though your heart is aching

Smile, even though its breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You’ll get by

If you smile with your fear and sorrow

Smile, and maybe tomorrow

You’ll find that Life is still worthwhile

If you just smile..

Something I learned recently
February 15, 2011

Topic #46 by Daily Post

I’ve been busy the past two weeks but here I am again! It feels great to start blogging again.Hopefully, I will catch up with the posts I’ve missed out on. =) Something I learned recently was Forgiveness. There are times in everybody’s Life when you just can’t seem to forgive someone for something that they did. But I learned, by forgiving others, that forgiveness is a gift very few possess. I’ll keep this post short because, there is not much I can explain about forgiveness because it is better learnt when it is practiced. In short:

“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.”

-Robert Muller

Cry
February 1, 2011

Somebody shakes when the wind blows
Somebody’s missing a friend, hold on
Somebody’s lacking a hero
And they have not a clue when it’s all gonna end

Stories buried and untold
Someone is hiding the truth, hold on
When will this mystery unfold
And will the sun ever shine
In the blind man’s eyes when he cries?

People laugh when they’re feelin’ sad
Someone is taking a life, hold on
Respect to believe in your dreams
Tell me where were you
When your children cried last night?

Faces fill with madness
Miracles unheard of, hold on
Faith is found in the winds
All we have to do is reach for the truth

And when that flag blows
There’ll be no more wars
And when all calls
I will answer all your prayers,
Show the world

You can change the world
(I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky
(Gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one
(I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
All cry at same time tonight

Michael Jackson
