Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction-
There are many who are starting to get attracted to the Law of Attraction. With the top rating multi-million sales of the Secret and the many Self- help seminars like the Landmark Forum. I want to share my experience regarding this.

Here's a quote from...
Abraham: You did not come into this environment to create through action. Instead, your action is meant to be a way in which you enjoy what you have created through thought.
Esther Hicks
Source: The Law of Attraction: The Basics Of The Teachings

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he..proverbs 23:7

Ever since I remember I have always wanted a perfect life and I strive for perfection. I looked inside me and tried to change my heart from within.. I even attended self-help seminars and bought so many books. But my longing was deep.. so deep that people, knowledge and philosophies, etc cannot fill..

So I got outside help to fill the gap.. relationships, alcohol and even drugs to dull the deep need for significance and purpose. I just wanted to be happy. This was a ten year search until I was exhausted and drained.

During my time of searching my brother was a new convert to Christianity. I hated him because he used to be one of me… we were friends and we would always be together in our exploits of searching for significance. To cut the long story short he stopped hanging out with me.. and started sharing how he was changed by Jesus!

It was so horrid because it was so simple!!! My mind was rebelling to the overly simplified answer to the longing of perfection and freedom. My initial reaction to his ”new found” faith was to persecute him until he becomes so angry that the Jesus in his life will be quenched or sucked out of him..hehe. I used to be an expert on “picking on people.”

Six months has passed he still was standing strong in his faith (i failed). One night while I was feeling severely lonely, desperate and depressed I cried out to God and confessed that everything was my fault and my life was the result of all my thoughts and actions I needed Him to divinely intervene as I surrendered to Him. After I cried out to Him, He actually answered back!!! A voice told me “go to your brother’s church” so I went the Sunday of the week.
Attending my brother’s church did not change me, listening to the music and the preaching did not also change me. My heart was burning in the presence of the Lord while the words and songs pierced my heart. Jesus drew me to Himself that day and I totally surrendered to whatever He wants me to do. . that changed me by letting Him do the changing!

Jeremiah 29:11For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
Psalm 1
1BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
2But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
3And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

I use the bible as my life manual on how to think and dream.. to attract God’s thoughts and laws in my heart. I meditate on it and apply it. It’s been 12 years and I’m still learning and growing in my relationship with Jesus. He saved me and cleaned me up, from inside (thoughts, emotions and desires) to looks and actions.

My last thought on this..
I can gain the whole world with my own thoughts and dreams but what “eternal importance” will it have? I will loose my soul in gaining all “things” apart from God.

Guam Trip

Guam was like a family reunion for me.. i have loads of cousins and little newphews and nieces who live in guam.. I also have a very good japanese dive instructor who happens to own Papalagi dive shop in guam and a chain of dive shops in tokyo (he was in tokyo when we were in guam.) Anyways the trip was special because of family. Il post family pictures as soon as i get copies.

The metro pacific group (producers of the show) treated us like family too!! It was cute to see the group which is composed of married men, be the leaders of the whole project. The wives really supported thier husbands. Truly, the show was a sucess because there was a flow of authority and unity within the group.

Here are some pictures..

Lunch at the Marriot with Sitti, Kitchie and Mrs. Margie Nadal Kitchie's mommy :)



We stayed at the Sheraton Resort Hotel! It was great! The food was super yummy and the place was so nice and clean.. we thank the metro pacific guys and wives for taking care of us.

Our gig with Sittie Navarro was a unique exprience.. just mixing Bossa and Pop-rock was a feat. imagine the crowd when Sitti was playing and then Kitchie.. its was different because 1. there was no violent reaction from the crowd. 2. the crowd enjoyed both experiences from the oldies to the kiddies.. it was a "global like" affair in terms of music clashes.




picture and artwork c/o our friend mari arquiza

Im looking forward to more posting of pictures.. during the show. Im just waiting for the copies. :) i post it when i have it!

enjoy the short video!

Swiming in a cove the waves are strong if you swim in the beach.. batanes is not a beach area.


Stayed with Tita letty, Myle's auntie















The Beauty of Batanes






I would like to thank myles and her family for taking me around in this beautiful place. I recomend Batanes for the people who just want to chill and relax.

I am in a desert

I am in a desert.

One of dreams is to go the ends of the earth and have a message to bring.. the earth seems to be so huge but in this century it is now accessible. Just writing this entry has the potential to reach the millions (billions) of people.

My dream is lingering.. and God is telling me to wait..

Isaiah 43

“Forget the former things, do not dwell in the past.
See I am doing a new thing!

Now it springs up; you do not perceive it?

I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland…

… to give drink to My people My chosen, the people I formed for Myself that they may proclaim My PRAISE!”


This time may seem dark in the industry I am in.. a place of “desert like” arena. God provides that place that He may be glorified.

PS
To all the people who came and watch "Lets ROCK Manila" produced by BAYO last night.. Thank you for your support!
