Personal Journey

Yesterday, I attended the LVF.  It was a whole day Rheims Experience.  As we go on with the activities, there are realizations how can I live myself as a Lasallian.  One reflection that strucked me was something like what is meant to be God’s calling.  For me I think it is about doing things that fulfill myself.   Feeling good with the work I do is a great offering to God.
Teaching minds, touching hearts, transforming lives.  As I am just a beginner and lowest level of my faith, something Dr. Paquita mentioned retains in me.  It is teaching A mind, touching A heart, transforming A life.  I am very idealist into wanting everyone to strive and do what it takes to attend school.  I can be considered as an education fanatic.  But I must remember that it must always be Christ-centered.  I do not need to rush everyone.  I can do this one by one, little by little.  I can start from the inside, with the people close to me.  Pero bago yun, sa sarili ko muna.  I have to let go every burden that I have inside me.  And praying to God helps.  Conversing with Him gives me enlightenment.  Medyo slow lang talaga ako sa spiritual growth ko although I was brought up as a straight Catholic ever since.
Naiwan ko yung notebook ko sa Ariston.  Thank God nandoon pa rin sa seminar room.  In-assist naman ako ng mga tao sa LSPO, security, maintenance.  Yung notebook na yun is very important to me.  It is my spiritual journal.  Actually, second volume ko na yun.  Nakasulat dun ang mga spiritual reflections ko during retreats and anytime.
My reflection for today’s Gospel is turning back to God.  Turning back to God increases my faith.  And my growth in faith should not only be contained in me.  I must share it to others.  I pray to God that I will become a person that can reach out to others and share to them my faith in God.  I know that going to that path would be very challenging.  I cannot see what lies ahead but I must remember that God is with me always.
My reflection song…

O Hesus, hilumin Mo
Aking sugatang puso
Nang aking mahango
Kapwa kong kasimbigo

Hapis at pait Iyong patamisin
At hagkan ang sakit
Nang magningas ang rikit (KORO)

Aking sugatang diwa’t katawan
Ay gawing daan
Ng ‘Yong kaligtasan (KORO)
