Saving the mundane and temporal

            We have to understand that our mundane and temporal affairs are no obstacle in our relationship with God and with others. They should not be. In fact, for most people, these matters and affairs are the very occasion, material and motive for developing the love for God and for ...

Refer everything to God

            We really have to learn how to refer everything to God. This should be like an instinct, an urge that needs to be corresponded. We should always remember that the constant and ultimate parameter of our life is God, since he is the one who sets the final conditions and purpose ...

To the stars!

I’ve become very picky when it comes to movies. More selective, critical and unforgiving. When I watch a movie, I’m fully engaged; I get inside the story and into the characters, and I let the story and the characters get inside me. I watch to experience and not just to be entertained. A great movie time for me is to sit in ...

The subtle optimism of ‘Bahala na’

For the longest time in my adult life, I have always perceived ‘bahala na’ as one of the negative traits passed on by the Spanish colonizers, to us. This, along with ‘mañana habit, ‘ningas cogon,’ and ‘siesta.' In the last few weeks, I have been through a cycle of emoti ...

Digong’s marching order for PSC: bring sports to the poor

President Duterte’s hand’s down choice in 2016 to head the Philippine Sports Commission in 2016 never fails to amaze. And at the pace PSC chairman William “Butch” Ramirez is going, the transformation of Philippine sports from strength to strength can be an anchor to nation building and development. ...

Setting realistic health goals for the New Year (Last of two parts)

For better skin As I turned 30, another mentor of mine (yes, I surround myself with wise people) told me to take care of my skin. Ten years since that day, I am thankful that she called me out for not paying attention to my face and skin!  While there are many great skin care products out there ...

More power, more temptations

            This should be a no-brainer. It should come much like an instinct. When one is vested with power, with better endowments than those of others, he must remember that such privilege will always attract temptations of abusing it. It is like a magnet for temptations. Thus, we have ...
