#224 christmas

Love came down at this festive season

celebrating UNCONDITIONAL  INFINITE  love —

Christmas trees and litted tinsel trimmings;

gatherings and parties and carols;

gifts of love and appreciation 

shower on one another.

Christians remembering

GOD so LOVED the world

that He sent His Son 

full of grace and truth

to earth

to save the world

and redeem man to Himself.

What does this Christmas bring?

A time to enjoy one another and each other.

A time for reflection on self, career and future

awaiting 2009.

#135 love

Love is a feeling to be learnt…through self-discovery — not through seminars though!

There is pain in love. Sometimes, one feels gagged. Of course there is joy and elation…sunshine all day…

The best description found on love is from the Bible in 1 Corinthians 13.

Love is patient,

love is kind.

Love does not envy,

love does not boast,

love is not proud.

Love is not rude,

love is not self-seeking,

love is not easily angered,

Love keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

…..

Love always protects,

Love always trusts,

Love always hopes,

Love always perseveres.

Faith, hope and love:

the greatest is love.

…..

Measuring against these characteristics of love, I fail miserably…nonetheless I shall strive on becoming a better person in spite of age.

#134 marketing eros

These days, you can make money virtually in everything and in every field and aspects of life — even teaching one how to fall in love (eros) between opposite sexes and how to maintain that relationship! Yikes!

Have we become robots?

It appears many Singaporeans are good at rehashing from books or that heard but on things of emotions or life? Low in EQ? Half a person? Surviving for the sake of surviving? Lacking in commonsense to life?

I know in American society this kind of seminars are available…I don’t know for what reason…perhaps a way of creating jobs and income.

Does this mean Singapore has to ape America on this?

Singapore has been a nation where many know the answers to everything and life but delivery or living out…?

People compartmentalise…able to take risks in businesses or money-chasing but in matters of love and life…?!

Once I overheard a conversation between two young saying that there is profit gained in wedding dinners. This could be said for divorces too.

Naturally someone is making money: caterers, restaurants, wedding boutiques and legal firms, to name a few.
