Never mock God!

Got this article from a friend. Try on!

Here are some men and women who mocked God:

JOHN LENNON: Some years before, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said: "Christianity will end, it will disappear. I do not have to argue about that. I am certain. Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, Today we are more famous than Him" (1966).

Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times.

TANCREDO NEVES (President of Brazil): During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency. Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before being made President, then he died. CAZUZA (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet): During a show in Canec√£o ( Rio de Janeiro ), whilst smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said: "God, that's for you."

He died at the age of 32 of AIDS in a horrible manner.

THE MAN WHO BUILT TITANIC: After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be. With an ironic tone he said: "Not even God can sink it"

The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic.

MARILYN MONROE: She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show. He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her. After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: "I don't need your Jesus".

A week later, she was found dead in her apartment.

BON SCOTT: The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang: "Don't stop me, I'm going down all the way, down the highway to hell".

On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.

CAMPINAS/SP IN 2005 In Campinas, Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend. The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter - holding her hand, who was already seated in the car: "MY DAUGHTER, GO WITH GOD AND MAY HE PROTECT YOU." She responded: "ONLY IF HE (GOD) TRAVELS IN THE BOOT, CAUSE INSIDE HERE IT'S ALREADY FULL"

Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died, the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the boot was intact. The police said there was no way the boot could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the boot was a crate of eggs, none were broken..... Boot means trunk.

Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus. Many have died but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive. JESUS!!!

Superiority Complex.

Superiority Complex. While I am doing this entry, I don't know if there is such a term as Superiority Complex. I am only aware of the inferiority complex. Actually, I am trying to browse the internet now. I am trying to look if there is such a term. Multitasking... okay, I found one here it is I quote from wikipedia
"Superiority complex refers to a subconscious neurotic
mechanism of compensation developed by the individual as a result of feelings of
inferiority. The term was coined by Alfred Adler (February 7, 1870 – May 28,
1937), as part of his School of Individual Psychology.

Those exhibiting the superiority complex commonly project their feelings onto others they
perceive as inferior to themselves. Accusations of arrogance and cockiness are
often made by others when referring to the individual exhibiting the superiority
complex.

Behaviors related to this mechanism may include an exaggeratedly positive opinion of one’s worth and abilities, unrealistically high expectations in goals and achievements for oneself and others, vanity, extravagant style in dressing (with intention of drawing attention), pride,
sentimentalism and affected exaltation, snobbism, a tendency to discredit
other’s opinions, forcefulness aimed at dominating those considered as weaker or
less important, credulity, and others.

Social aloofness, daydreaming, isolation could also be associated to the Superiority Complex, as a way to evade the fear of failure related to the feelings of inadequacy to face real world.

Superiority and Inferiority Complex are often found together as the different expressions of the same pathology. "
Why am I saying this? Because last night, I faced somebody exhibiting such complex. I am active in our community chapel. I am a member of The Family of God Catholic Charismatic Community. To cut the long story short, Last friday, our choir FOG CHORALE, held the practice at the Choir loft in the chapel. Suddenly this lady which I will just name as Superiora entered and stopped the practice. She was telling the group that we have no right to use the loft because they(OB Youth Choir) hold the exclusive priviledge of holding their practices and using it every mass.

My argument "No one has the exclusive right of using the Choir Loft and everyone has the right to use the chapel as long as what the people will be doing is for God".

Her point 1> No one can use the loft except for them 2>some of the choir members are not Charismatic people (she was assuming that we are pirating members from her group) 3>i forgot.
She was with her choir and her mom. We were with a lot of people including my grandma and my parents.

What I didn't like was that she was so arrogant. She was so convinced with her wrong proposition. Even her members agreed with her twisted argument. Very foul... She was so impertinent. She even said "tarantado" to my dad. She graduated from UP with a degree in Political Science. She is now taking her masters degree. How come? When she doesn't know what diplomacy means? Political Science? When she has wrong ideologies? I am not degrading her. I did not mention her name or whatsoever. I just wish, she knows when to be and what to be.

In this world, we shold not burn bridges instead we should be building linkages. We should know our limitations and we should know how to act depending on the situation.
I am not mad. I just what her to be corrected. How shall I correct her? Am I in the position. She even referred to me as "nito" a thing. I even told her "nito, nito, bagay ba 'to?" (this, this, is this a thing) while pointing my both hads to myself. I was stepped on. I know. I believe.

exaggeratedly positive opinion of one’s worth and abilities
unrealistically high expectations in goals and achievements for oneself and others
vanity
extravagant style in dressing (with intention of drawing attention)
pride
sentimentalism
affected exaltation
snobbism
a tendency to discredit other’s opinions
forcefulness aimed at dominating those considered as weaker or less important
credulity
I hope that someday, she may face somebody who can correct her. I hope that she learn her mistakes. I hope.
I just believe that she reaps what she sow. I hope.

Anna Nicole Smith & Daniel Smith


Anna Nicole & Daniel Smith

Daniel Smith is Anna Nicole's son. He died last September 10, 2006. I just find it tragic that Anna died five months after her son passed away.

The reason behind Daniel's death? A lethal combination of Zoloft, Lexapro and methadone. Although the forensic expert explained that methadone is used in the treatment of heroin and morphine addiction, he said he had no information to make any conclusion why Daniel was using the drug.

The reason behind Anna Nicole's death. Unknown. But her lawyer said that days before her death she was suffering from flulike symptoms.

Why a sudden death? I don't know. It just reveals that life is so short. We should make the most out of every second. We don't know when our time will come.

Love Poem.

A Young Woman's Poem
When I met him, I like him
When I like him, I love him
When I love him, I let him
When I let him, I lost Him.

A Young Man's Poem
When I saw her, I like her
When I like her, I asked her
When I asked her, She said no
When she said no, I married her
When I married her, after sixty years I still love her.

Despedida.


Last Saturday, I woke up at around 6am because we were about to go to the province for my grandma's despedida. We were going to have a small party for her before she go to the states. She is an immigrant now. After years of waiting, she got her accepatance letter from the US embassy. I am really glad for her. My grandpa is in the states already waiting for her. They both deserve a break. Not just a break, but a happy retirement. By now, they should be experiencing all the happiness in this world. They've done their part already. They now deserve to be happy and free from all the troubles here.

Okay, back to the despedida. Umingan, Pangasinan (Philippines) is around four to five hours away from Manila. We left Manila at around 7:30 and we arrived at around 12 noon. We ate lunch and the lunch, as usual was very good. Then my uncle announced that the roasted pig (lechon) was done and it's already on the dining table. In a matter of a second everybody - 17 grand children, 6 children and in-laws were feasting around a pig. Good thing, it was the start of the year of the Pig. Just kidding...

Our farm is a 24 hectare land with lots of mango trees because obviously it is a "Manggahan". It's the family business on my mom's side. It is located on top of a hill. We have no neighbor. The next house is about a kilometer away.

At around 2PM,we went down the hill to look for a resort so we can swim and have a little fun. Because we were looking for a cheaper one, we went to the next town which is Lupao, Nueva Ecija. We found a resort, a small one with two swimming pools. One for biggies and one for small kids. There are slides, tall ones. Good for having "real" fun. This resort is not like the ones in Boracay or Subic. But that made our day. We spent the whole afternoon until around 6:45 there. Take note the name of the place is MACARINA. It sounds like the other version of MACARENA.

When we arrived back at grandma's place, we had dinner and we had some bonding time with cousines and friends.

The next day, we woke up early. We went to mass and we went to the wet market to buy food for lunch. The fishes there were fresh and it was nice looking for exotic food to eat.

After lunch, we had some photo shooting session. At around 3pm we went back to Manila. As we were going back to Manila, I watched the movie the wedding singer, but I fell asleep. I told my uncle to just turn off the lcd screen. I really wanted to watch it but I can't resist the call of my neurons to sleep. The end.

UP Fair 2007

Last year, my friends and I planned to make a list of the things we should do before graduating from College. It's a sort of "to do" list. Included on our list is to be able to go to the University of the Philippines Annual fair. To tell you frankly, I 've been waiting for the day that I will be able to go to their fair. When I was younger, I keep on asking permission from my parents if I could go there. But they always tell me that I can't go. Now that I am twenty, I could do more stuffs. But I hold that freedom with great responsibility.

The fair was from February 12 to February 17. At last, before the last day, my friends and I were able to go there. At first, my expectation of real fun was not met. But it was because we were on the wrong part of the grounds. While walking a long the sunken garden, we found the crowd. The real fun was just about to begin. When it began, we were about to leave. Anyway, we had fun eating street food. When I mean FOOD, we pigged out! Anyway, it was fun and I think it's alright to pig out cause the day after it was Year of the Pig. So Gong Xi Fat Chai in Mandarin, Kung Hei Fat Choi in Fukyen, Maligayang Bagong Taon, in Filipino and Happy New Year in English.

I Blog therefore I am.

Frankly, I just thought that this line sounds philosophical. Thus, I decided to make it as my blog title. I find it intriguing. I find it nice. Now, after a message from one of my readers, I think it's time to really ponder on my title. What do you think?

Inspired.

Kindly please take time to read.

It may look long but this will help you a lot.

A while ago, I went to a seminar on sexuality. I just want to share my learnings for today.

The speaker, Mr. Ed Sorate pointed out that based on the bible(Genesis 1:27) man and woman are created in the image in likeness of God. Thus, man and woman have specific roles to perform based on how we were created. The man does the Work Role and the woman does the Caring Role. Based on this, he enumerated the Physical, Psychological and Intellectual differences between a man and a woman.

Here are the differences:

Physical

Men
  • Bigger and Stronger Bones
  • Coarse Skin
  • Flat Breast
  • Square hips and body structure
  • Sturdy and Heavy movements

Women

  • Small and Fragile Bones
  • Fine Skin
  • Developed Breast
  • Rounded hips and body structure
  • Graceful movements

Psychological

Men

  • Stress on actions and achievements
  • Undisturbed by trifles
  • Weakness is discouragement and failure
  • Passionate
  • Direct, Blunt and brief
  • Less patient and less enduring
  • Gives love to get sex
  • Wants money and success
  • Realistic

Women

  • Stress on what they are
  • Upset by little things
  • Weakness is loneliness
  • Romantic
  • Indirect, Symbolic, Puzzling
  • More Patient and preserving
  • Gives Sex to get love
  • Wants love and affection
  • Idealistic

Intellectual

Men

  • Essential Minded
  • Rational and Logical
  • Functional
  • Less Communicative

Women

  • Detail Minded
  • Intuitive
  • Aesthetic
  • More Communicative

But in GEnesis 2:24 "Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh", It says that in the midst of those difference we were created for PROCREATION (divine)and Communion and expression of love (human).

Sex is pleasure and it is where our freewill plays. Why? Because we are the ones who decide to whom we give it. It is also the greatest experience of love and the door to life.

Sex was even linked to ketchup.

Roles of Ketchup?

  • adds flavor
  • not the main thing
  • hast to be in the proper place otherwise it becomes improprer and dirty

But avove all what is IMPORTANT is this:

LOve and Marriage

Without LOve, it's gonna be RAPE or FORNICATION

Without Marriage, it's gonna be PREMARITAL SEX

The speaker also mentioned the MYTHS about Sex, Love and Relationship

1. "If you love me let's have sex" Should I give it?

Answer: True love RESPECTS, CARES and grows with affection and thinks of the needs of others. If he insists WALK OUT on him. If he loves you he will RESPECT you.

2. All my friends are having sex. Should I?

Answer: It doesn't mean they are. Wait longer than rush and regret it.

PROGRESSION OF SEXUAL INtimacy

So is Sex IN?

It starts with INfatuation

Then INvolvement

Next is INtimacy (starts with a kiss)

Then INtercourse

Afterwhich INanakan (Filipino for being pregnant)

Then INiwan (Filipino for being left)

Then what's next? INabort (going on abortion)

So is it IN?

3. If you really love someone you will sleep with him.

Answer: You're in charge

4. Sex is the most important thing.

Answer: No self esteem is.

5. Sex means instant adulthod.

Answer: Maturity do not depend on it.

6. My BF won't leave me if I have sex with him.

Answer: Sex won't made him yours, A baby can't make him stay.

7. It won't happen to me. I'm too young.

Answer: You are physically capable. Wait do with the right person, right time, right place and right purpose.

8. Sex makes "us" compatible.

Answer: Sex doesn't guaramtee compatibility. 3 out of 10 marriages end inseparation

9. Sex like infatuation grows into love.

Answer: Premarital sex takes away many things.

10. LOve is a feeling.

Answer: Feeling is important it draws us to each other. But it is the decision to love that defines a real relationship.

There are two kinds of relationship: 1. Infatuation, it's more on sexual attraction, feeling, intimacy, and pain. 2. Friendship, it's more of self discovery, rspect, trust, being one's self and inspiration to be better.

Dating is okay as long as you know your limitations and you don't go out of that boundaries.

You don't want to get STD's or AIDS or you don't want to have abortion. At this point in time, people should be physically, emotionally, intellectually, financially and spiritually ready before one gets in to SEX.

Remember this?

Remember Pepsi's Advertisement wherein they featured Pink, Beyonce, and Britney? They even used the song "We will rock you". I don't just love that ad I was amazed on how Pepsi really want to beat Coca-Cola. I think the ad is kinda figurative. Why? At the moment or even during the time this ad was aired on TV, Coca-Cola is the reigning softdrink in tinstletown. Right? Maybe it depends on your preference. But my Marketing Management professor, Mr. Charles Cruel (the man behind C2) told us, that for us to know the leading brand, we just look at how much the brand occupies a slot in the grocery. If it has bigger space, there's a big possibility that it's the leading brand. At the end of the ad they even dethroned the sort of "king". So, just view the ad down here and tell me if you think the same.

Latest Craze: Post Valentine Psychosis

After my literature class, I don't know why thoughts are sudddenly flowing out of my head. I felt the urge to write. So, here it is. The title is Valentine Psychosis. Check it out!

I found a portal in the midst
of my unending search
for the true meaning of life.

This portal allowed me
to go to places i've never been.
Places which I perceive as unreachable
and non-existing.

As i enter,
I found myself in complete happiness.
I saw myself amazed.
I found myself in awe.

The perfection of it's boundless beauty.
The inanimate scenario which tends to surpass
all life's burdens and trials.
Little by little,
I feel serenity.
Serenity which captivates all the aspects of my entirety.

A deep sigh.
A long thinking.
A smile on my face.

I kept on entering from one portal to another.
I kept on going deeper
and deeper in the realms of life.

This portal seems overwhelming.
But in reality
it's just a pure feeling.
Pure emotions.
Infatuation.

Now I stand at the verge of life---
the bridge out of the portal
of temporary insanity. 010107
