“You are commanded to love everyone, not condemn those who don’t agree with you. Your opinions are just that, - opinions, regardless of where you got them from. They are tiny, a speck compared to the immensity of God. You cannot possibly have even the faintest idea of what God commands to other people, to other lifeforms. Your only possible intelligent choice is to continuously open in love and acceptance. Today more than yesterday.”—God Wants You To Know
Arrived in Session Road by six in the morning, a lot of people were already sitting and or standing on the curb. I saw various facial reactions as they were waiting for the parade to start. Like some were with lively anticipation and some were irritated because the sun’s rays were reaching them.

“How bad things may look right now means nothing, - it’s how good they can be with God’s help that counts. In life you can absolutely count on one thing, - everything can turn around in one day, in one minute sometimes. Don’t you dare to give up, - you might be a moment away from a windfall.”—God Wants You To Know
“You have to pass through a dark night of the soul. Everyone does, including you. A time comes when what you have always believed is true melts away underneath you. When you cast in doubt even the most obvious, the most simple. When it seems that dark night is all around, and you are all alone. Take heart, this journey through abyss is the final barrier before your emergence into the heavenly light of a new synthesis of your being. God is waiting for you on the other side.”—God Wants You To Know
“You are not to shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find and keep. The quickest way to find love is to give love. If you want it too badly, you will not find it. The most secure way to keep love is to give it space and care to grow. If you hold it too tightly, you will lose it.”—God Wants You To Know
“The answers are within you. You’re chasing in the wrong field. What you are looking for is inside of you, not ‘out there’. Take a few days off to become quiet and look within, and you will find it.”—God Wants You To Know
Tria Bascon’s debut album “Wanderlust” will be available in record stores nationwide under Universal Records.
Coming from a very musical family it was only natural that Tria Bascon would start singing at an early age. Her father and older siblings were already well known in the music business in Cebu in her native Philippines.
“Tonight you can turn your worries to God, and have a good night’s sleep. You’ve been worrying too much about the future lately. So tonight, go ahead, put your faith in God, and just have a peaceful evening and a restful sleep.”—God Wants You To Know
“The great advantage of having nothing is that everything becomes a gain. Losing everything is at the same time the scariest, as well as the most liberating experience you can have. When you have something, - anything, you’ve got to protect it from disappearing. And so worry becomes a resident in your heart. When you’ve got nothing, your heart overflows with gratitude for every offering you receive.”—God Wants You To Know
It’s been a long time since I joined my father in his mission trip. First was in Davao and the last time was in Baguio back in 2009. This kind of trip is a very special experience for me. Aside from bonding moments, it’s an opportunity for us to share God’s grace. I’m honored to witness firsthand and be part of God’s miracles in different forms, in various communities.
“It’s time you stopped hiding from life, and said yes to the adventure of being alive. Enough of the routine already. Go on, have an adventure, - do what you always wanted deep within your heart. Do what brings you alive, and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.”—God Wants You To Know
“Nothing is exciting if you know what the outcome is going to be. You keep wanting to know how things will play out, keep asking to see the future. God doesn’t give anyone the power to know the future, because life becomes maddeningly boring when you know everything upfront. So, instead of struggling, enjoy the uncertainty - to be alive means to not know.”—God Wants You To Know
Hot Air Balloon Festival: A Weekend of Everything that Flies
February 12, 2012
Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga
One of the main events of my weekend trip.. the 17th Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. Yay! Hehe. Finally, I made it. It’s always been on my list of places I’d like to visit ever since. I’m a fan of hot air balloon and festivals. Lol. Anyway, I didn’t go to hot air balloon ride ‘cause I was planning to go skydiving, instead.
“You can’t rid the world of sorrow, but you can choose to live in joy. Sorrow is with us not because we are bad at stopping it, but simply because it’s part of being human. What matters is not whether good or bad things happen - both will, but your relationship to them. Just think back over the last 24 hours, - what had you taken hard that you could have taken lightly?”—God Wants You To Know
“You are perfect as you are. God doesn’t create faulty life. No. Everything created by God is perfect, and so are you. So stop driving yourself mad with endless ways to improve, and just accept the glory of your being as is.”—God Wants You To Know
Jeremy Lin is the newest NBA icon who achieved five wins in a row for New York Knicks from last Saturday to last Tuesday game. People in and out of virtual world made him a good topic to carry on a conversation. From what I’ve read and or seen on videos about him, there’s so much you can to take from his words. And these are not just words, but words of wisdom and understanding from God. Here are few quotations that could possibly help you in life.
“Until you learn how to say ‘no’, you will never be able to fully say ‘yes’. Unless you know how to set boundaries to form your safe space, you will always be concerned that saying ‘yes’ might put you in danger. So you will always pull back a little from saying ‘yes’ with your whole heart. Paradoxically, knowing how to say ‘no’ to form boundaries gives much more power to your ‘yes’.”—God Wants You To Know
I just want you to know that I can’t wait to see you.. to look into your soulful eyes, to catch your mysterious smile, to touch your warm hand, to stroke your soft hair, and explore your beautiful heart. I know time will come and I’m willing to wait. ‘Cause I believe when the time comes, we are sure we are created one for the other―a God-ordained match―you and me, me and you―totally and completely. Until then, I will patiently save my love for you and wait for that amazing, sweet day.

After years of absence, Susy is back (there are some rumors that she wants to attempt a comeback in showbiz). Problem is,
“You are to trust yourself. If you do not, then you will forever be looking to others to prove your own merit to you, and you will never be satisfied. You will always be asking others what to do and at the same time resenting their help. Trust in yourself starts with being ok with the consequences of your decisions.”—God Wants You To Know

“Every time you pretend to love, you impoverish yourself more and more. Love has great potential to enrich your life. But if you are just playing a role, pretending to love, it’s only going to poison you. Because you are teaching yourself that it’s just a game, and slowly but surely you will lose the capacity to open in love.”—God Wants You To Know
“It is the day of deep peace for you. Deep peace of the running wave to you. Deep peace of the quiet earth to you. Deep peace of the flowing air to you. Deep peace of the shining star to you”—God Wants You To Know
“You don’t go to find meaning in life, you bring meaning to your life. Meaning isn’t something out there waiting for you to discover. The meaning of your life is what you infuse it with - beauty or ugliness, happiness or sadness. It is totally your choice, and God wants it to be your choice because God gave you free will.”—God Wants You To Know
“Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow. There is no need for you to go it alone. There are people who love you, and who are ready to give you much needed support. There are even more, - way more than you can possibly imagine, people who CAN love you if you give them a chance. Make ‘share joy, half the sorrow’ your motto for today.”—God Wants You To Know
