Hanging in this bridge

For the past few years, I’m really feeling that I’m getting older by the day. Now that I am taking a very strong drug in aid to prolong normal life, it adds more to that negative sensitivity that I am becoming more and more frail without having the ability to counteract. It’s one of those things that you need to get used to but can’t help to even entertain the natural tendency to despair.

The present predicament which I have been enduring since 7 years ago is still the clear and present danger. I have not lost hope, YES! but how can I even prepare myself from the inevitable.

Ever since I stepped into this hanging bridge, I always dreamt of reaching the swaying end and grab into some solid ground. I really am striving to reach that part and when the time comes, I will always be thankful. I am thankful everyday…. I really am.

Hey!! I’m not even complaining. ;p

Learn your enemy

If you have an enemy, then learn and know your enemy. Don’t just be mad at your enemy.

Science versus Philosophy

Science tells us how to heal and how to kill; it reduces the death rate in retail and then kills us wholesale in war; but only wisdom — desire coordinated in the light of all experience — can tell us when to heal and when to kill.
-Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy-

setting free your children

“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.”  -Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet-
