Churches are sinner’s sanctuaries. In the Holy Place, we hope we get ourselves cleansed. Sundays are cleansing days. And the other six days are meant to be spent outside the Holy Place.
Imagine how our lives will change if we start thinking of our bodies as sanctuaries too. We become more aware of our actions. We guard ourselves against impure thoughts and evil intentions. We protect our bodies from anything that will destroy it.
We can change the way we think about our sanctuaries.
Let the clock teach you to value your life. Each tick and tock must remind us that we are nearing our end. Make the most of each tick and tock for one day you’ll not hear them again.
Do you celebrate small successes? I encourage you to focus on what works well in your life. When you celebrate your successes, no matter how small, you are allowing it to multiply.
Allow yourself to be happy about small things. Build your happiness muscles so that when the big successes come, you’ll recognize them.
… keep your eye on the ball, and with all your might hit it. You’ve been to many curveballs before. You missed some. You hit some. Swing your bat and hit the ball.
There is always something new, something that you’ll not be able to predict, something that you are not prepared. But that’s what life is all about. So, when it happens to you, enjoy its amazingness.
A curveball can be an opportunity to make a homerun. So, swing your bat. Hit the curveball.
I used to go to mountains and beaches — to reflect about my life and my God. Nature serves as my bridge to my soul. I forgot that my body is nature too. And my soul is not somewhere else. My soul is me.
I can find solitude wherever I am — even in a crowd.
The world isn’t black or white. There are infinite colors in between them. And when we recognize this, we’ll be able to celebrate those whose colors and shades are not the same with us.
My call for positive revolution is to a call to celebrate the world — most specially what’s right with the world. Open your eyes — and you’ll see that our differences should not divide us Our differences only show how colorful we all are.
