Ganito ang mundo malaki, malawak may nakaraan may hinaharap ang kabuuan ‘di maabot ng pang-unawa Ganito ang lipunan matatag, makapangyarihan mahirap usisain mahirap palitan ang kalagayan ay pilit na pinaniniwalaan Ganito ang tao maliit, mahina may kasalukuyan – ‘di maintindihan ang kasaysayan ng mundo mahirap turuan – ‘di matanggap ang katotohanan sa lipunan
I look up ahead of me and there are all these walls covered with daunting thorns, freaking me out and telling me to just stop right here. These harsh obstacles make me worry about the scars I would have to put up with if I continue this direction. They keep pushing me back, using my fear to keep me rooted on the spot and prevent me from seeing the other side of these walls. But what else can I do but carry on? There are definitely options to choose from, but if I am to live a fulfilled life, there’s no way to it but to start climbing the seemingly insurmountable hurdles. It’s easier to turn to the road more often traveled, but I refuse to give up on the path I am destined for.
“Keep your temper.”
You know there is something wrong when you start rooting for the bad guys because at least they have a sense of what they are fighting for their words resonate with the harsh truth that they see but we do not see as we are saturated with lies wrapped up in pretty words and pictures that do not seem to harmonize with what we need they keep feeding us with what they want us to want now we are lost and trapped and groping in the dark Is there a light?
It is very difficult nowadays to come across that rare moment of clarity, that dawning of comprehension, about what really is and what we are about. We are swimming in a deluge of noise and we try our hardest to avoid surfacing to silence. We find it hard to think, just shut up and think, because we preoccupy our minds with blabber. There’s not much time left to question and seek for answers about the world, the enormity of life, as we are too busy with the everyday tasks we put upon ourselves. There’s not much space left to allow discovery of the essential, the learning and understanding of the truth since we are too filled with trivial things. To find someone who is open to queries about the state of society or someone who will not dismiss a lengthy discussion about ideas and insights is to find a grain of sand among the rocks.
