Happy New Year

Everyone knows the immortal line that’s been used every New Year, “Bagong Taon, Bagong Buhay.”It’s a total cliche but I’m here to tell you something important…It is good to start one’s life-styles and attitudes at the beginning of the year, but then again it’s overrated. Its sincerity has gone so far. One can simply say those words during New year but still living the same kind of life throughout the year.This is the sad reality., Isn’t it? No amount of New Years, Holidays, events, and people can change a person. For being good, living good and having a moral life lie on the person per se, not on the upcoming events, and even on the people around. No mistakes were done for the past year, but rather, lessons to be learned for this New Year…a GRACE-FILLED NEW YEAR!

Death: Culminating Point in Man’s Life

Death does not simply occur in man’s life.  It is not simply an event that overtakes in his life.  Death is a free act.  It is an act of freedom, a highest act of freedom.  And since it is the highest, it drives man to reach his wholeness/totality.  In reaching his wholeness, man has logically lost his concupiscence which lessens his power to choose either good or evil.

Descartes Argument on God’s Existence

Rene Descartes proves the existence of God using his argument of the “Cogito Ergo Sumas the starting point.  He claims that God exists because it is God Himself who implanted the idea God to his (Descartes) mind.  When Descartes thinks the idea of God, he proves his “thinking” by examining his own thinking of himself.  Thus, he says, Cogito ergo sum, I think, therefore, I am.  In connection with this claim, when he grasped the idea of God who is greater than himself, the idea of God which is present in Descartes’ mind comes from God Himself.  He (Descartes) said this simply because, he cannot think of a greater idea of God since he (Descartes) is less great than his own idea of God.  So, where does this idea of God come from?  Logically, it comes from God Himself simply because (not that simple for some people); God Himself is the Cause of the Effect of the idea of God on him (Descartes).  Thus, there would be no greater effect than the cause.  Since, God is the cause of the idea of God, it follows that God exists.  Descartes cannot think of the idea of God, if his idea of God comes solely from him.  In a nutshell, Descartes says that God exists because he has in his mind the idea of God, and this idea of God cannot come from him since this idea (of God) is greater than him.  If that is the case, there is innate idea of God in his mind implanted by God Himself.  Therefore, God exists.

GOD DOES NOT EXIST

Ludwig Andreas Von Feuerbach, a humanist-atheist claims that God does not exist.  He explains that God is merely a projection of human imagination.  He says that man, in his action, is experiencing limitations in this life.  He is going through suffering and poignant pangs of grief in life.  To make up for this limitation, he produced or made up the idea/concept of God who is greater than himself.  Man, in his limitation, made the idea of infinite, eternal and omnipotent God.  Thus, Feuerbach claims that God is a simple product of human imagination.  To put into syllogism, he says that “If God is, so man is a slave.  But man is free and intelligent, therefore God does not exist.”  Granted that Feuerbach was trying to prove the non-existence of God by saying that God is just a product of human imagination in order to satisfy his limitation.  Though he was able to deny the existence of God, still, he was not able to explain where this man’s idea of God comes from.  The question now is that, if man was able  to make his own idea of God who is greater than himself, where this idea/concept of God comes from?  Obviously, his idea/concept of God does not come from himself, for man cannot think or even create someone or something which is greater than himself.  This unsolved question in Feuerbach’s position is answered and explained by Rene Descartes

TEAR

“If I were given a chance to live my life again, I would be a tear…be born from your eyes, lives in your cheeks, and dies on your lips.”

Instant

Instant

 

What is patience? It is a virtue.  That is the thought that most of the Catholic students learned in the school.  Defining what patience is, is quite easy for them, it is very mechanical.  But trying to understand the “whatness” of patience is hard to decipher.  Rev. Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI once said and I quote patience “is a virtue which helps us, for the love of God, to calmly bear our tribulations and preserve serenity amid the sufferings of life. Patience tempers sorrow and staves off excessive anger and complaining. Patience is the guardian of all the virtues, for there are obstacles to be encountered in any good work, and they can be overcome only by patience”.  It is obvious here that patience is a virtue, one of the cardinal virtues, which any Christians should possess.   But how can people really acquire the virtue of patience, if everybody wants an instant access. People nowadays desire to get what they want immediately.  All the scientific investigations are used in order to speed up the natural process.  Everybody easily get tired of waiting. They don’t want to wait for so long.  Human experiences tell us that people don’t want to wait.  As a matter of fact, many “instant” things are ever produced. Instant noodles, and instant coffee, in order to fill up the hungry stomach are there.  ATM’s are built to speed up banking transactions.  Mobile phones and internets are the most common means of communication nowadays. One can easily send message to their loved ones using the said stuffs. With all these realities, it appears that the humanity is very successful in trying to speed up everything and eventually avoided the agony of waiting.  All that is said from above are just few things that one can see… people really want everything to be instant, so that in a glimpse of an eye, everything would be possible.  However, there is no such thing as instant.  To be able to eat the instant noodles, and to drink the instant coffee, one should boil water first.  One should wait for a few minute in sending the message through the SMS or through email.   In fact, in using computer, one has to wait in order for the computer to fully function, and so it says…loading, downloading, etc.   In trying to get cash from the ATM, one should fall in line before s/he can take his/her turn.  There is no such thing as instant millionaire.  Even the lotto bettors have to fall in line in buying their bets.  They also need to wait.  Be patient.  That is the lesson.  There are many individuals who want to earn instant money, so they cut the trees for profit.  And they never mind replacing them.   As a result, the city of the rich and famous was flooded.  Indeed, there is no such thing as instant that the human beings can acquire. People must have a virtue of patience. Only the Absolute One can make it happen.  And here it was…instant flood.
