A Journey to Understanding My Sense of Being (Thoughts of Reason)

I always thought that we are who we think we are... The word who we THINK we are, struck me when I come across a video in you tube.  At that moment everything inside me started changing. The way I feel about my thoughts, how I interpret emotions, and the most important realization is... how I identify my self.

The journey didn't stop in just watching one episode, I was hooked, every time one episode ends I was longing for another episode to watch. But, I had to stop myself, as the mind dictates... I have to internalize what just had happened to me while watching  the video. 

At first, my mind try to reason out, always reminding me this and that. Thoughts that's been condition and was imbedded inside of me. I consider it as myself, not just a part of me, but who I am. Then this video just hit me, opening something inside of me that was hidden. That I thought had awakened.

Although this journey is not done, every day spent wondering this thoughts of reason just had to subside... I have to let it just happen, embrace WHAT IS... that my reason of thoughts could not comprehend. Let IT flow within me and stop analyzing every change that it brought into my whole being. 

Sending peace and love to the universe...

Learning How to Cook!!!


Ok, I'm not a big fan of cooking, but since living here in Hawaii "Big Island" in particular, going to restaurant is getting a bit expensive (taking into account the gas, time, and most especially the taste of food you're getting). So, to satisfy both mine and my husbands taste buds... I have to learn how to cook!

For real, my first thought was... Well it's not gonna be that hard, all I have to do is browse the internet, find some nice and tasty recipes, then follow them. But for some reason, I'm one of those visual learner type, so you tube comes in handy. Again and again my favorite learning school is YOU TUBE.  Of course, I consider it my favorite because it's free and a lot of you tube up-loaders are very nice and helpful enough to share their talents.

So anyway, I've learned cooking stir fry kind of type... At first, everything was great, hubby and I did enjoy the stir fry meal I prepare almost every night. But then, boredom of eating the same thing over and over again is kicking in. I need to prepare other stuff!!!

So tomorrow the quest for cooking other stuff begins. I will do my best to learn different cooking recipes and share about it using this blog.

I love learning, but don't like the pressure of peoples expectations.  So go for the gold in cooking!

A way to get Free Samples!

What to do when you finally get bored playing games in facebook? Well, for me, I started researching on different sites that offer money to take surveys.  So off I go, busy looking at different website that offers free samples just by completing a simple survey.
So far I'm in the process of exploring different sites that offers what I'm looking for. I've encountered promising ones, but the one that catches my eyes is the bzzagent.com.  They have a very neat and easy to understand lay-out. 

A very friendly format compare to other site that offers the same program. The survey process is straight forward.  Does not link you to another site that ask information most of us consumers are not willing to handover that easily.
Anyway, to make the story short I sign up and are now completing surveys whenever I get a chance. Waiting for my bzzscore to go up, to finally be eligible to receive a bzz campaign. So, if your like me, who wants to get freebies while surfing the net, check out  https://www.bzzagent.com/.  Maybe you'll enjoy answering surveys too. 

Enjoy web surfing and don't forget do only things that you feel comfortable doing.
Happy reading everyone!

Cheers to the New Changes in Thoughts!



Well, the first thing to do when you finally rid yourself of worries is to celebrate.  A celebration that not just free-up the mind, but also the soul that bind one into slavery.  As we all know, we are all slaves within our own thoughts. We've been so programed, that we often forget we all have the capacity to do greater than what is expected of us. But the real truth is... it's not somebody or anyone who is trying to put us down... "But our Own." Yes, you heard me right... It is our own expectations  that do two major things in our life... Those thoughts that can enlightened us, or those thoughts that can cripple the light that is meant to shine thru us.

The new beginning of life teaches me more significant virtues than what I have ever hoped for.  Experiences that help me see the importance of examining my own thoughts towards myself. Gone are the days that I would live a life where, I won't do something just because somebody may think it is wrong. Now are the days where, I would say to myself, "You know what... "You deserve better than this, so go for it." It doesn't matter who may object, but I know deep in my heart it would give me peace and acceptance to the new life changes I will be facing.

So lets all give the best to ourselves and enjoy life the way you think it has to be enjoyed.  No one else know it better than you do. So start expecting less of yourself and start loving yourself the way you wanted to be loved.

Sending peace and love to everybody in the universe.

Happy reading Everyone!!!

ZeekRewards - The Rewards Program of a Lifetime!

A Mood Swing Alert!





How can one keep a harmonious atmosphere when mood swing gets in the way??? A question that popped in my head, just because that's how I feel... "A MOOD SWING ALERT!!! "

I respect the people that surrounds me, for who they are, and what they perceived about me. Anyway, they have their own way of showing there biases as I have mine.

Although... my way of coping with dramas and all those nonsense pouring of emotions is to RETREAT MYSELF, those who do not know me personally, usually take offense.

I have been very naive when it comes to racism... Now I realized, that people tend to show how racist they can be, just to let go of some build-up frustration. It's ok! I realize we do have our own way of dealing with frustrations.

I know that our actions towards others mirrors who we really are, and at this point I try to refrain myself from judging people... Just like me they are in the process of evolving too. I do believe we are all divine in every sense of the word. Some may put label on who they think one is, but that's on them... They are the one who will carry that thought.

As far as I'm concern... Right Now.... I feel sorry for those who think ill about me... Judging me because of my race, and resorting to intimidation just to frustrate me. The only thing I can do is... FOR MYSELF!... I need to reflect and use this moment to PONDER on what I want in life. "TO BE FREE or TO BE BOSSED AROUND."

How to Kill Time, Yet be Productive

 It all started with... "Well,  I don't work today... Hmm ...What can I do to be productive for at least few hours?"  So... here comes you tube! browsing at what people are posting... Which usually in my case motivates me to watch and learn.

Watch and Learn, a blessing in disguise to those who are motivated enough to be doing something creative... Like, making my own hats by a crochet method!

Well... I guess that was my story, I was able to learn how to crochet by watching ladies and gents in YOU TUBE make a tutorial about how to crochet.

 At first, I was just making hats and matching scarf, but it is so addictive that I have an urge to do something more complicated than just hats and scarves, so I started making bags as well.

Long story short, I was able to make a little bit of money doing something that I like... And it all started with, How to kill time and Still be Productive.



These are some photos of my finished crochet projects.

A Way to Deal with Ignorant Personalities


Sometimes I ponder... How does a person handle an ignorant personality graciously???

I've been blessed enough to be able to experience a life where people of different races and colors surrounds me.  I'm always impressed at myself for being able to react positively towards an ignorant personality. "I just don't want any argument to escalate."

People will always have their own opinion on something, and I do respect that.  Everyone are entitled to their own opinion, but one must realize... that, not all opinions are valid enough to be considered an intelligent one. 

As our generations evolve, our experiences teaches us something more important than any theories in books. But, some books are meant to be written and be read. These books opens our mind to a new way of thinking. Such books usually talk to the heart and teaches our ego to be quiet.

One book I do recommend for everyone to read is "The Four Agreements" by: Don Miguel Ruiz. This book help me release most of the emotional baggage that ignorant comments brought into my life.

I do agree that if one doesn't know their own emotional limitations... Emotional trauma will slowly  lurks in. Such trauma leads one to bluntly comment on something out of ignorance as well.

I don't hate those kind of personality, I admit it... we've all been blurting ignorant comments just to hide our own insecurities.

After being introduced to Don Miguel Ruiz's writings by a friend. I was able to learn how to deal and positively react to an ignorant comments. These teaching has been my guidance and shield for quite a while now.

"The Four Agreements that Don Miguel Ruiz's mentioned in his book are :" 

                Be Impeccable with your word
                Don't take anything personally
                Don't make assumptions
                Always do your best

As I experience every now and then these ignorant personalities, I'm thankful that there are people who unselfishly extend their knowledge. Knowledge and guidance in helping individual heal and rise to the challenges that we are meant to deal with.

My choice is... instilling the four agreements into my heart and hopefully share these precious teachings to all my love ones by writing about it. And, that's my way of dealing with ignorant personalities.

So... Happy reading everyone! Leave a comment if you like.  :)

A life of seclusion

The choice lies within how committed one is, in embracing a life of seclusion.  I guess, it's not how well a person can live a life of seclusion. But, how well one can adapt in the life of being secluded.

This statement has been lingering in my thoughts for a while now.  For the last four weeks, since being able to experience a more secluded life, I realize that this kind of life was meant for me. Maybe because, I never really enjoyed crowd so much.

 I finally feel so at home, I love the atmosphere and the joy this new environment brings to my whole being. The unending activities I was able to experience brought me to a new sense of understanding.

My emotions heightened as I listened to the humming of the birds, while they try to capture my undisturbed appreciation.  The soothing sound of rooster crowing at an early dawn, reminding me of a new day waiting to be explored. Although, this is just minor observations I have been fortunate enough to be able to share... I do enjoy writing about it.

Writing such a wonderful experience is my goal in this blog, I guess to finally remind me of how this secluded life is so different. A life where busy street in nowhere to be found, but only, the raw music that nature proposes for us to acknowledge... to help us reconnect to nature and appreciate once again... how nature intend for us to live.

Now, with all of these observations... I guess...  being in a secluded life is not that bad at all!


Happy reading everyone!!!

The Beauty of Accepting Change



I always think that change is something to be dreaded.  Am I going to survive in a new place I had never known? Questions like this are haunting me, as I imagine how change will affect my life.  As I look back eleven years ago. I never knew I will be able to make a leap of faith. A leap that will forever change my life. 

Now, with all the treasured experiences I was able to accumulate. Change has taught me that I don't need to fear anything. Instead, embrace every opportunity that change is offering me. I finally realize that there is beauty behind every change. The beauty in it lies when I finally started accepting change for what it is.

Surprises are always in the air as I finally embraces the beauty of change. I am always amaze on all the wonderful experiences I was able to face. Maybe because I don't fear change anymore, instead... I look forward to accepting changes in my life for what it is.
