The Secret of Letting Go


Blame it on New Year – it brings a sense of New Beginnings and Letting Go’s, not to mention – Moving On’s. I was thinking of looking back at 2012’s happenings in my life, but I find myself looking back on the past decade of my life. I don’t know how that came about, I just realized if I look back from last year (it’s already 2 hours to New Year here…), 2013 will be the same as 2012 – or at least not much of a difference.

I plainly consider the tomorrow as a chore and live the days as if it were to end today. That is also the reason am saying I felt the consequences of 10 years eating me up just lately. I worried for a while, then got mad, hated myself for a few minutes – then I finally admitted defeat.

I only know of personal and emotional attachments. Career and finances are always that something we can always recover from. Unfortunately, with raging emotions and physical attachment – things are murky and blurry especially when reason is all but a cliché’. Continue reading

Daily Dose of Choco: What’s Wrong?


I guess we’ll all know soon enough when we get hit by the consequences.

To Us, with Adventurous soul – It’s all worth the ride! We crave for it.

For The Curious ones – It’s damnation. Curiosity is also a friend of stupidity, don’t forget.

For the Experts – It may be your last. Think again, good prevails.

For the Good-hearted, sensitive and gentle – Now is not the right time to change.  This is definitely not your league. Besides, the world needs you.

For the Soul – searchers and Answer – seekers – Guaranteed shocking answers and bigger problems will be found. What are you looking for?

For the Righteous – I believe they won’t even think of it, more so attempt to try. They will definitely incarcerate themselves.

For Those who does not fall into any of the above – You are not saints or gods, You are simply humans, therefore failures are forgivable, there is always a second chance and a second act.


Zen Today: Happiness.


As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger and attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.
