Six Haiku for Stephanie


20170329_221209

因爲我愛你,
灼灼櫻花下雨了。
你還是離去!

Because I love you,
Even the Sakura weep.
And you still leave me!

你說你愛我。
你的愛是電影票。
戲始終完了!

You said you loved me.
Yours a ticket to a show.
The show is over!

你若是薔薇,
我是你花中朝露。
我也會走的!

If you were a rose,
I’d be your morning dewdrop.
I would dry up soon!

To Steph with Love,
Forever yours,
David
xoxo

Trinity of Forgiveness

Trinity of Forgiveness

In Buddhism as in Hinduism and other reincarnation and karma based pagan religions, the concept of unresolved issues in past lives is the very cause that people are bound in loving or abusive relationships in their present lives.

In our Post-Modern times, social decadence stemming from liberalism, progressivism, and feminism has most definitely destroyed traditional family relationships and values. It has destroyed the very backbone and foundations of the family, every fabric of community and society, and sadly, people’s faith in God. Our society is infested with atheists, agnostics, ignosticists, apatheists, and naturalists, who are indignant in their beliefs but miserably unable to bring about peace and harmony to anyone including themselves.

Consider the issue of filial relationships. According to teachings of Buddhism and Hinduism, some children form relationships with their parents in order to repay debts owed to them in the past; others have come to collect. Those who have come to repay will respect, love and honour their parents; those who have come to collect will hurt them.

In the worst case scenario, a parent or parents would invest in their children with love, care, education, and everything material only to be forced to live with the consequence of having their well-groomed children met with sudden deaths such as those occurring in car or plane crashes. That is how it usually plays out in the case of the most horrendous of debt collectors.

Buddhism and Hinduism explain these relationships as past karma squaring out in the present, although Christian beliefs do not subscribe to such explanations and therefore such may be offensive to someone with little or no understanding of Eastern religions.

What can you do spiritually if you find yourself in an abusive relationship?

Irrespective of your religious beliefs, you can sincerely and faithfully perform the Trinity of Forgiveness following these steps:

  1. Kneel down and pray to God and ask God to forgive your debtors and all those who trespass again Him.
  2. As you pray, and with God as your witness, forgive your debtors and all those who trespass against you.
  3. With God as witness, ask your debtors and all those who trespass against you for forgiveness.

LOVE


LOVE

Love is natural. Love is kindness. There are people who go after our humanity, that tell us that the light in our heart is a weakness. Don’t believe it. It is an old tactic of cruel people to kill the kindness in the name of virtue. There is nothing wrong with love. The message of our Saviour is love of our people. There are times in life when we feel lost. It happens. And it is a bond. We are all in it together.

Holy God We Praise Thy Name


Holy God We Praise Thy Name

Holy God, we praise thy name,
Lord of All, we bow before thee;
All on Earth thy sceptre claim,
All in Heaven above adore thee;
Infinite thy vast domain,
Everlasting is thy reign;
Infinite thy vast domain,
Everlasting is thy reign.

Hark the loud celestial hymn,
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and seraphim,
In unceasing chorus praising;
Fill the Heavens with sweet accord;
“Holy, holy holy Lord.”
Fill the Heavens with sweet accord;
“Holy, holy holy Lord.”
