2013-A Brand New Start

2012 was uneventful and nothing significant was achieved. That is my honest evaluation and summary of this year for me.
It was however, a year of great self discovery and personal understanding. These, I am certain, will bear fruits for the years to come.

App-ing religion

It happens everytime. This pang of sadness.
The pastor says "Turn to ...verse" and majority of the congregation whip out their smartphones and activate whichever bible app they have downloaded.
I miss the days of hearing the rustling of bible thin pages. I miss the days of finding bibles behind pews.
I am no technophobe but sometimes, I wish we bring back the good old simple days. I am glad I have experienced those days and they remain in my memory keepsake box. It is with regret that the children of today will not share in this nostalgia.

God is With Me

November and December has always been a rainy season. Well, in Southeast Asia, it has always been the norm. Makes us think of Seattle and its never-ending rainy periods.
As I looked on at the downpour today from the window, I remembered how I managed to escape it on multiple occasions over the past few weeks. Always in the nick of time, I either got to the bus stop or home before it rained cats and dogs.
Perhaps I am insignificant in the grand scheme of things. But my faith have always been that God only allowed to skies to unleash their water after I got to shelter. Seems naive or dreamy but I do want to believe in it. And if God is watching out for me, if he is with me, he will never not let him fall in harm's way.

What about someone who always get drenched by the rain? Is God not with him or is God letting him suffer such small disturbances as warnings of greater wrath to come? 我想太多了吧!

Flooding: Nonsensical Comments

This blog has been inundated by nonsensical comments recently. I get about 20 a day. Gosh....What a pain.

Have been preoccupied.......

To say I have been preoccupied (and therefore allowed this blog to lapse into inactivity) is an understatement.
Lots happened and needed my time and attention.
At 3.30am this morning, I remembered this blog. Its web address and name. Pursuit of Enlightenment on (I seem to be twirling in circles these days, not waltzing, but I will leave that for another day).
It's been a year and four months since the last post.
After all this time, I realised that the pursuit of happiness takes precedence over the pursuit of enlightenment. A happy person is an enlightened being and an enlightened person should the very least, be happy. If he is not, what is the whole point of gaining enlightenment? 
Food for thought..........
