Purpose

Once you found your purpose in life, focus on it, make a difference as much as you can. Life is short for you to waste it on purposeless endeavors.

The Compassionate Path

Not knowing is sometimes worst than knowing. It keeps your mind guessing. You hope for something that might not be there anymore. In short it will make you go crazy. I think it is rude, whether you are the one doing this or you are on the receiving end. We can always choose the compassionate path, by being honest with one another and speaking the truth with love. No pretense, no going around bush, just pure, simple, honest words.

Oh how we can make simple things complicated and straight lines crooked! Life is simple and uncomplicated when live in truth and love.

Teach us O Lord to be honest to one another. Amen.

On Truth and Love

Only truth can make us truly free. And if we say “Love will set you free,” then that love cannot be but anchored in truth or else it’s no love at all. Love never lies, it always “rejoices with the truth.” 1 Corinthians 13:6.

What is your truth? “Speak the truth in love.” Ephesians 4:15

Actuations

There are situations when it is best not to fight. Actuations will tell us if the other wants to be fought for. Leave it to the heavens who alone knows the lot of men.

There are reasons that are worthy of response but there are shallow excuses that are not worth it, even a word. Excuses are lies mask in reason but fortunately conscience will tell us which one is true. We never gain in lies; we grow in truth.

We can never judge the motives of the heart, only the bearer knows. The challenge is to be truthful, because it will set us free.

You Don’t Have to Ask

Talking about conversations, you don’t have to ask if someone wants to talk or not, the manner of responses alone will tell. They don’t want to be bothered for whatever reasons.

For now what you have is “maybe”. Maybe the other is going through some tough times, or maybe just busy, or maybe you’ve done or said something wrong or maybe the other doesn’t really want to talk to you anymore. All is “maybe” what is certain is they don’t want to be bothered. Trying to converse will just exacerbate the situation.

What should you do? You actually don’t have options, other than respect, pray, love and wait.

1. Respect the other rather than being bothersome. You don’t want to be annoying.

2. Pray, Saint Padre Pio once said, “Pray, hope and don’t worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.”

3. Continue loving. Love doesn’t need conversation, the heart knows beyond what the hands can write and the lips can utter.

4. Wait in silence for God, “He makes all things beautiful in His time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11.

Remember, it’s not just about what’s good for you but more importantly what is good for the other.
