24th: a day of meditation


Yesterday, when I arrived at Brahma Kumaris Center for my meditation class, I greeted the sisters, then went straight to the meditation room. As I started to focus on the point of light, a bunch of thoughts were passing by. I calmed down, observing my way of breathing, acknowledging these thoughts and deepening my  level of concentration. I was ready to enter another world, suddenly, I could start feeling something. Mosquitoes! 

As I joined my classmate in another room, we both started meditating. This time, I could feel the heaviness in my eyes. My classmate was asleep the whole time. From the moment I was tempted to feel the same, I adjusted my sitting position. Then, my focus was back to the point of light.

Few passed by - actions, growth, people around my circle, soul's qualities, and other random waste thoughts. Just after few minutes of meditating, our teacher started the class. 

Let me share few insights I got from our class:

*The Qualities of a Soul - Purity, Peace, Love, Mercy, Knowledge, Bliss
*When inner world is strong, external factors can't pull the trigger.
*When we die, we can't bring anything except these - Mind, Intellect & Sanskars
*Meditation is being practiced to purify the thoughts to live beautifully and peacefully.

Om Shanti,
Edzzie

23rd: something fictional


While on the passenger's seat, I saw a man from a far, in a blink of an eye, he was sitting in front of me.
He glanced, I glanced and I looked back. Then, I caught myself, smiling.

Few minutes after. I thought he was gone. To my surprise, I saw him, again. This time, beside me. Oh oh.
Someone gave me a seat, as I sat down, he was looking at me. I started to feel awkward. I was thinking, this man is too good-looking  to give me a stare.

The bus is much loaded. Our shoulders brushed, while my hair caressed his back. With excess movement of the passengers, we got closer and closer, and... it felt too close that I didn't want to let go. Cray, I know right.

Suddenly, I found myself in a hurry...

21th: over a decade of waiting

11th to 20th - missed

21th: 


Last weekend was one of the best weekends ever. Meeting the woman who has been my inspiration in a bunch of ways.


After over a decade of patiently waiting, finally, I met her. The woman I truly admire, my role model, the reason behind my number of ways, the epitome of grace & beauty - Ms Miriam Quimbao. I don't see her as a beauty queen, but, a sister from a different lifetime. 




I arrived at SMX Convention Center at around 1:30 in the afternoon, from the moment I stepped into the venue, I was in awe of what I saw. I couldn't believe the long wait was over. I was few steps away from the woman I wanted to be, the woman who has been a part of my life choices, the woman I adore.







I started my Quiambao addiction when I was in my high school years. I still remember how I stayed up late just to watch her on TV during the BB Pilipinas pageant. I felt something weird about her. I was even crying when she won. I felt she was an important person or could be 'me' from a different lifetime. I don't know. There were days when I would practiced in front of the mirror to talk, to walk, to sit, to smile, just like her. 


However, a lot of changes happened. I realized it was impossible to be like Ms. Miriam Quiambao. So I gave up the thought. Instead, I have been doing the best I can to excel in my own world, being me. 


I thank the universe, for allowing me to meet and greet the woman who made a big contribution to where, how, what I am today. 



Lots of Love,

Edzzie
