“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
To my fellow travelers, I hope this letter finds you well. How has the first couple of weeks of this new year been for you? For me, this week has been full of meaning, yet hard conversations with fellow travelers. They all struggle with this common challenge: COMPARISON. It’s something we […]
January 6, 2019 To my fellow travelers, Last year, I was inspired by these words of Henri Nouwen: “The great paradox of the spiritual life is, indeed, that the most personal is the most universal, that the most intimate is the most communal, and the most contemplative is the most active.” and have […]
WELCOME TO A NEW YEAR 2019! A new day, a new you. Happy New Year everyone! Why I am not setting goals or New Year Resolutions for 2019? Most people in the world have started the year with a resolve to make changes via New Year Resolutions and/or set goals to achieve this year. I […]
“People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere […]
“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only the potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflections […]
Dear Sophia and Christopher, Daddy loves you so much. What a joy it is to watch you grow more kind, more curious and brave with each passing day. I am blessed to be able to call your mother, my wife, and best friend. I am blessed to be able to call you my son and […]
“The great paradox of the spiritual life is, indeed, that the most personal is the most universal, that the most intimate, is most communal, and that the most contemplative is most active.” – Henri Nouwen, “Here and Now”
Life is a collection of transformative journeys. When I reflect on my own transformative journeys, I notice that there is a seasonality to each one. From personal endeavors to entrepreneurial ventures, each journey could fall under what I call “The Four Seasons.”
To my beloved Sophia and Christopher, I love you so much. No words will ever capture the depth and width of my love for you. I only hope that in all of our moments together, your confidence in that truth won’t waver but rather get built up.
Climbing out of the pit of despair was not easy. I am exhausted, battered and bruised. Out of breath, in disbelief, I am… free. The ground feels loose and slippery or is it my wobbling, tired legs, I can’t tell.
Father, Give me the eyes to see, the ears to hear, hands of compassion, and feet towards justice. Fill my heart with your Passion, my mind with your Promises, my soul with your Peace, and this place with your Presence. And in this overflow of being your Beloved, may I answer the call to create […]
The raw flow of words attempting to capture a moment during silence & solitude. The sun in its consistent generosity, shone brightly today. She is tireless, unending. She gives and gives… And yet, half of the world turns our back to her. We are tired and we need the colors to fade. The essentials to […]
Can you die from holding your breath? A quick search on Google reveals, most likely not. You body will pass out and your autonomic bodily functions will kick in. It will veto your will and make you breathe again. I know it’s an odd question to ponder but I believe it has something to teach […]
