Keep moving forward and keep opening new doors — make your own good karma

Every so often, my mind would drift back to the past, to savor the days gone by, to reminisce about the good times. There was a strange feeling of contentment replaying those scenes over and over. …

The magical human touch

She pushes open the door and walks inside. There are scented candles everywhere. Tiny flickering glows dancing all across the room, creating a sophisticated wall of art on the white interior, giving it a cozy feeling. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. …

You know yourself better than anyone

I am stuck with indecision. I want to move forward, but a part of me has an equally strong compulsion to stay where I am. I’m in the middle spot, being pulled in both directions with the same intensity and therefore not getting anywhere. I can’t trust my judgments, and…

Nobody cares! People hurt you and belittle your soul. They trample you underfoot, clip your wings, and throw you into a cage. There will always be those who will diminish your worth.

So what? You can’t be so desperate for acceptance that you forget. When faced with the harshness of…

Life always steers you in the direction you choose

When I was younger, I wanted to become an entertainer. I saw myself dressed up extravagantly on stage, looking out at the crowd, clapping and screaming in appreciation of my performance. That dream stayed with me for a long time. Over the years, as my skills improved, missed opportunities piled…

An old photograph tucked between the pages of an unfinished book.
A few coins scattered underneath a stack of crumpled bills.
A set of keys misplaced, hidden in the dark corner of a crowded drawer.

These items used to be essential, for you spend a large part of your day…

There’s no such thing as an insignificant step

When a magical idea knocks on our door, we want to run down the path of mastery to fame and success. We want to arrive at the top immediately to maintain an image for the world to see. We become obsessed with the end goal. …

Life moves like a pendulum. We are in constant flux, wrestling with each passing moment, tossed between the state of complete euphoria and total anguish.

It’s the continuous swing of ups and downs. The higher your goals, the greater possibility of failure. The deeper your fear, the greater the courage there is to conquer.

Follow the rhythm — prepare, focus, optimize. Every situation is temporary. Soon, the current motion will reverse and move in the opposite direction. Ride each swing from joy to sorrow and back again.

Whatever happens, refuse to cling to either side. To live is to move, to change, to experience happiness and suffering, to know love and sorrow. The purpose of life isn’t to dwell on everlasting sensations of joy, neither is it to shun evil. It’s encountering, learning, and transcending it all.

Take the chance — go for that swing. Because a lifetime isn’t forever.

Having the courage to live your own truth

Recently, I noticed subtle changes showing up on my face. I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m becoming more concerned with how I look. Then again, when were we ever not concerned with our looks? More so now when the uncontrollable effects of gravity are quickly becoming visible…

Always being right can be wrong

We don’t all agree on what “right’’ is. Much of our lives revolve around concepts that only live in our minds. When our beliefs change, the ideas change as well.

Most of us agree with the moral principle that says we shouldn’t lie and must always tell the truth. Why…
