To understand reality is not the same as to know about outward events. It is to perceive the essential nature of things. The best-informed man is not necessarily the wisest. Indeed there is a danger that precisely in the multiplicity of his knowledge he will lose sight of what is essential. But on the other hand, knowledge of an apparently trivial detail quite often makes it possible to see into the depth of things. And so the wise man will seek to acquire the best possible knowledge about events, but always without becoming dependent upon this knowledge. To recognize the significant in the factual is wisdom. Dietrich Bonhoeffer:


Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.---RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.---ABRAHAM LINCOLN
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.---ALEXANDRE DUMAS
“It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones" --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn quotes (Russian novelist, Nobel Prize for Literature (1970), b.1918)
“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.” ---Kahlil Gibran

MY day

I should call yesterday A DAY. It was time for my beauty stuff and of course my massage. My massuese was busy so I decided to take another one and gosh  it got so painful when she did the massage. Both for thighs and near shoulders were really in pain and she told me I was prone for coma and the pain near shoulders determined something in the head. In a minute, I thought if it had something to do with insanity hahaha, anyway, I have this frequent headache perhaps that was it meant. :)

I felt better yeah, but for now I can still feel the  pain of the touch. I'm kinda abusive with my body lately in terms of movement. I tend to be lazy perhaps as I've been under the weather or my body is still adjusting to the no work days routine.

Been working all days of the week and so far I cope up with those days and here's vacation time leaving me free on weekdays. I still have lots of grades to work on but guess my room is no longer  a very good place to do work.  Been here for rest and relaxation have to make another adjustment to  change the mindset.

Today, I woke up early as usual but extended getting up until I felt hungry.  And didn't have the gusto to do anything else though I planned in the past what to do today. This can't go on, my day is a day of moving and working, I'm not comfortable to be idle at all...on a second note, maybe im just restless. And what's my day like, for now I can say...unexplainable. lolol!
