My state of confusion is not an illusion. How would I know, which way to grow? I’m only a tree.

So let me be. Continue reading And Let Me be Me ( 1 min read)

A long time ago in a small Indian town, a merchant had the misfortune of owing a large sum of money to a moneylender.

One evening the moneylender arrived at the merchant’s house, along with two royal guards and a couple of town elders.

“I will forgo all your debt if you marry your daughter to me.” The moneylender proposed to the merchant, who was standing in his garden along with his beautiful teenage daughter.

The merchant looked at his daughter and then turned his attention towards the old and ugly moneylender who fancied his daughter. “But… you are old enough to be her grandfather. How can you even think about marrying her?”

“If you don’t want me to marry your daughter, pay me my money immediately. Or I’ll send you to jail.”

“But, how can I clear your debt so soon. I need more time, maybe a couple of months?”

“As I said, pay me my debt now or I’ll send you to jail.”

After a couple of seconds of silence, the moneylender said. “Okay, I will make things simple for you. I will put a black and a white pebble in an empty moneybag. Your daughter will pick one pebble from that bag. If she picks the black pebble, your daughter will marry me and all your debt will be forgiven.”

“What if she picks the white pebble?” The merchant inquired.

“In that case, she does not have to marry me, unless she wants to, and your debt will still be forgiven.” The moneylender said as scanned the merchant’s daughter from top to bottom. “But if your daughter refuses to pick a pebble from the bag, you’ll be thrown into jail.”

The moneylender bent over and swiftly picked up a couple of pebbles. He slyly put two black pebbles into the moneybag and threw the remaining pebbles back on the ground, but the merchant’s daughter noticed his deceit.

“Pick up a pebble from the bag.” The moneylender said as he extended the moneybag towards the merchant’s daughter.

The girl thought. “If I refuse to pick a pebble, my father will be thrown into jail. If I pick up a pebble, since both of them are black, I will have to marry this pervert. If I expose the moneylender he will surely hurt my father, maybe not today but soon.”

“Come on! Pick up the pebble fast.” The moneylender said in a slightly raised voice.

With a smile on her face, the girl put her hand in the moneybag and drew out a pebble. Without looking at the pebble, she let it fall onto the pebble-strewn path on which they were standing. Making the pebble lost among the innumerable other pebbles.

“Oh God,” The girl said. “How clumsy of me, but if you look into the bag for the one that is left you will be able to tell which color pebble I picked.”

The moneylender knew that he had been outplayed in his own game and stood still for a couple of seconds.

“Go ahead, take out the stone from the moneybag and show us all.” One of the town elders said and the others nodded in agreement.”

The moneylender took out the black pebble from the money bag and showed it to everyone.

Even the most complex problems in life do have a solution, but sometimes we have to think in a different way to tackle them.

5 Questions I Live By Everyday (1 min read)

1. What is God’s will for me today?

I’ve been a self-will run riot in the past. It leads me nowhere and it is damn right exhausting. I shut off and tell God, “ok have it your way.”  Every morning, I take a few moments reading His word, praying and writing. Those routines help me find the directions and mission of my life in the long run. I started to feel at peace and find a way to handle the situation that used to trouble me.

When I lost my son three years ago, the excruciating agony shooting through my body was the worst I’ve ever known.  It was hurting like hell. No amount of human power could ease the unbearable pain I had gone through. I almost lost all the capability to feel and to think. The writing was the only task I can manage that does not require anything I can’t. I’ve known it since young. Writing when life was difficult had been my way of life and an automatic thing for me.

Yesterday was a hard day. My client needed a document I have to dig through old files. While doing my search I came across some receipts from investments I lost because of negligence. I felt so sad and guilty thinking that I could have made it better if I do things differently.  I cannot help but cry and feel sorry for myself for all the losses until the memories go back to losing my son. I regretted not being more loving and more forgiving when he was still around and so on until my heart was heavy and my eyes weary.

I was really struggling to write the past few days. It was hard to embrace the commitment to create at least once a week to give it away. This is something familiar because I made a lot of commitment to myself many times in the past.

The Fear of Heights (1 min read)

Hi guys, today I’m gonna talk about something I have feared ever since I was a little kid and still fear to this day, and its heights.

I don’t know why but heights just happen to suck the life out me. Every time I’m somewhere high I start to freak out and panic like a total idiot. But it’s not just about being in a high place that freaks the shit out of me, no every fucking time I see a large and incredibly tall building my heart starts to race at a thousand miles per hour and my hands start to shake and I feel like a complete loser (which I am).  And sometimes it can be really embarrassing, for example, once I was with some friends and we decided to get my friends, little sister, a toy, but the problem (for me, everyone else was fine) was that the toy shop was on the top floor, and there was no fucking elevator. I mean what type of a sick person places a fucking toy shop on like the 100th floor, I mean think of the kid)s who can’t climb up the fucking largest staircase ever.

Another example is when I went to London with my family we went to the London Eye and it was great for me until I found out we had to actually go inside a large round box thingy made completely out of glass and it just happened to rotate around a fucking wheel, and don’t get me wrong that thing was so high I swear I could see the Eiffel Tower from up there. Now I couldn’t back put off going in it as we had already bought the tickets so I prayed to God to help me survive and stepped in the box thingy, now I saw everyone around me walking in the glass box and taking pictures of the view while I sat there with my sweaty hands and racing heart beat next to an old Chinese lady who after five minutes also got up and walked around, and everyone was just staring at me like I was paralyzed or something (although I did act like it so…)

Alright guys I think this enough for now, I hope you enjoyed these embarrassing stories, and I hope they made you feel less like an idiot, cause let’s be honest no one’s as stupid and clumsy as me (yeah I’ll just go and cry in a corner alone now) bye guys and hope you enjoyed. -H

Short Book Review – Survival by Alexander S. Blackmon

51u21uWfrQL._SL250_This book is all about survival techniques and basic preparing methods to survive tricky situations. I think it is a great book for people that travel a lot or are planning to travel to places that there may be circumstances where you really get stuck. I think it’s a very useful book to have and to even keep in the trunk of your car. The only recommendation I would have is to make it longer and more thorough. I would have liked to read more and to learn more about the subject matter. I particularly like the part where it even tells you how to make your home secure. For someone living in Canada, where people don’t even lock their doors, I think this would be a “must buy”.

My feet are on solid ground.

We traveled through a city of lost people.
Cold steel, glass prisons, weapons of cement.
You tell me that you don’t understand how people can live this way.
You are not of this world. And because of you, neither am I.
