Fortune Cookie

Fortune Cookie

I got this fortune cookie fortune today at Starbucks.

That very evening, I had a call from the company not to go to work for one week as a company wide gardening leave was imposed.

I'm not superstitious, but I do believe in synchronicity or rather, I would say, God's timing, and you know what a sense of humour God has at times.

Goal for 2008

For 2008, there is one goal for me. To become a better lover.

Ha ha...

It's more than what you think and it's in more ways than one. In truth, I am merely following the Bible's commandments to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind. And to love my neighbour as myself.

The thing is, we don't love enough. Did you know that the opposite of love isn't hate but selfishness? Unfortunately, we live in world surrounded by self-centredness and messages to take care of number one, to take care of our own comfort and prestige. Salesman abound with messages for us to part with our money to indulge in our own whims, fancies and desires. Requests are made of us not for charitable reasons but for the requestor's indulgence.

It isn't easy being a lover. Loving takes wisdom, because we want to make the best choice, take the best course of action for the greater good of everyone.

Loving takes courage, we may have to break a bad habit, make a decision that "isn't me", risk our reputation or the status of a relationship.

Loving someone is actually a hard action because the easier path may be in indulging our own desires instead of someone else's.
