To Breathe Water…

To Breathe Water…

 

To breathe water. It was Monday. The shiny sun of December glares on the fields, peering vigorously and forcibly through the tiny holes of the windows. The cold breeze of morning zephyr touches my skin as it aims to touch others too. Unaware of anything, I just neglected the idea that it was already bright outside my partially dimmed paradise. And I turned to the other side of the bed. But, as if it’s eager to be noticed, a sudden rush of realization hits me; I have to get up. Get up!

 

It was already half past seven. I jumped out of bed. I drank milk. I bathe. And packed up all things – all in a swift instance. I rode a cab on a bumpy and rocky road. Then I arrived at a beautiful scenery. I jumped on my feet. Before my exhausted body, a place where the horizon manifests the world’s grandeur; the azure skies cover the azure waters of earth, birds were flying – carried by the soft blow of wind above. All that depicted the countless possibilities of my life.

 

The afternoon sun shone its hot and excruciating rays – a sign that I have to enter the cottage. Inside were my friends in a bunch of happiness and excitement. I arrived at few minutes before twelve. At that point, we all conformed to take our lunch. After the meal, we subsequently went to the end of the cottages. A platform made of bamboos. As we inched closer, I can feel myself shudder a little because of much excitement. We descended from the bamboo floors to another floor connecting the sea water and the cottages.

 

With much excitement, I jumped into the enticing waters, without any hint of where I let my body fell. I swam through its relaxing touches. It as if healed my frustrations and repugnance. In a while, I felt my body in need of oxygen, so I went up. But, in my attempt to touch the seabed with my feet, it was gone. With much fright, I fetched enough air to sustain a single second down to dark panicking waters. The water seemed to be an intruder, desperately trying to breach my body. It entered my nose. I needed oxygen. I propelled myself up again and fetched again the element of life. As I did it, I beheld my friends’ faces were, though vague, distorted and alarmed by the situation. Before the monstrous sea swallowed me again, I made myself screamed for help. At that very point, I lost all the energy and eagerness to propel up again. It was dark – totally dark.

 

That day, the water of life revealed its wicked, perilous, and dreadful side, I thought. As if I jumped, that day, into the dark abyss of my demise. I had sensed the darkest entirety of water and it was really horrible. All of a sudden, I closed my eyes – unconscious.

 

To breathe water instead of air was macabre experience.

Inner Peace

Your inner self is reluctant and afraid when you have doubts, when you are tormented by the dark shadows of your past, when there are things putting you in turmoil, when you are in the central question of your personality – Who am I? All these matters. You need to be situated and feel confident that you have found your space – the space that you’ve longed for a time, inner peace. Peace of the inner self must be achieved. Pity is the person who helps someone acquire peace but is not able to find his. Like discovery that brings betterment, we need to find ourselves in the name of happiness. It enlightens you, clears all your worries, replaces negativity with positivity, and answers all the questions that keep on pounding the inner of yours.

Seek and you shall find. Find the answers that will lead you to rediscover yourself. To have these, you should be brave and courageous enough. These things would help you embark and venture the truth about yourself. For truth causes pain, but pain brings a wonderful promise – transition from the weak to unwavering aura of strong and better person. Free will demands great immense responsibility, learn to stand with it.

However, the endeavor is not ended by just chasing for the answers, but by change. The inner carnality that you are used to – the person you have known before – will rebuild itself and improve its foundation. It is the only way to grow and move forward. If you have brought change, entomb the memories of the past. For they have tormented the present. They are not worthy of remembering. And all that are not worthy do not really matter, what matters most is the new beginning, the new ‘YOU’ you choose to be right now.

Paulo Coelho once wrote, “…we’re always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and why we didn’t act as we should.” We must free ourselves from these thoughts. We should stop contemplating of the phrase ‘I could have’. Leave the shadows of our choices, the things that blur our focus on the present. Let us embrace the ‘What is’,and resist asking ‘What if’s’. Because if we do, we shall obtain absolute happiness. And find inner peace.

We should not blame anybody for our unhappiness, for to do so is immaturity. The course of our journey lies in every one of us. We hold the decision. The decision to pursue what we really wanted, to find the truth, to go beyond the walls of fear, to find light, and to create more light. For gruesome is life of a person without peace. His life is as if an unsteady stormy flow of a stream; it ruins the wonder in it – the beauty of life.   The truth has been disclosed to us, overlays the dark corner of our personality. Now, it’s a matter of choice whether to stay and content yourself to what is unsatisfactory or to act and move toward happiness and peace.

The Divorce Bill in the Philippines: Am I For It?

The fact is undeniable that Filipino people are devotedly spiritual individuals. And as a scrupulously and conscientiously faithful, i do believe that marriage is so sacred that no one can separate a couple joined by God through Holy Matrimony. However, the sanctity of marriage will turn into godlessness if the person being married (I pertain firmly to women, I speak hear as a feminist) receives unwanted forms of violence and abuse from her partner. The real essence of wedlock cannot maintain itself because there is no evident presence of love between the couple anymore. They are occupied by anger, jealousy, infidelity, outrageous acts, and other detrimental factors that will bring destruction of their holy relationship. With that,  the united identity they have is strongly debilitated and unable to restore the authenticity of the spirit of love – which they promised to maintain and safeguard during the exchange of their vows. Thus, I am for the Divorce Bill here in the Philippines. Although as a Catholic, deviation of the Divine Law is seen as a great sin, but I do believe that in times of moral crises, there is no sin greater that inaction.

I grew up with a caring mother by my side. Always guiding me and giving pieces of her wisdom, which a mother should do, for me to become a good person. I have always cared for my mom and I cannot afford to see a woman crying out because she was recklessly beaten by her husband. Under those bludgeoning, my heart is as if joining the pain of a mother or a wife.

Divorce will render women the freedom from the abusive and outrageous marriage.

I decided to be a blogger! – My First Blog

I’m Kirby. A 17-year old college student.

To be honest, I am afraid to write anything about something. When my teacher would give us a writing activity, I would definitely feel worried about how am I going to start my work, how would I use the language effectively, how would I make my paragraphs longer, how would I end my work, how would I draw a conclusion, I am even afraid of doing a review of my work because I feel that if I do, I’ll just be upset.

However, no matter how I see writing, I really am pleased of the results of my works. All of them are good (according to my teachers). Perhaps, I have faced my fear so many that it brought lots of good results, but until now I have hesitations to write.

This time, I will take the challenge to be a blogger.

My teacher, told me that I should write a blog because I am, according to her, a prolific writer – I really don’t know HAHAHAHA. A friend of mine also encouraged me to be an online writer in such a way that this will help me improve my skills and I would be able to express my thought in a very awesome way.

Miss Rachy and Charm, thank you so much for the influence. I admire you for being really good writers. I promise that I will do my very best to be as good as you. You’re who inspired me to do this.

This is my first personal blog which is dedicated to the two of you. Thank you. I’m so happy!

I hope that I will have new friends that can also be my mentor in blogging.
