Love and choice

To love is a choice, a decision that does not depend on external pressure. I can’t love someone if I don’t have a choice. To love is to be able to choose any other person I want and yet decide to be with only one; it’s to be free to do whatever I want and […]


Heading confidently in the wrong direction

  TWO FRIENDS of mine told me of their painful experience in their first GPS-guided trip some years ago. The GPS was a novelty at the time. They enthusiastically entered the name of the desired city and off they went following the instructions and enjoying the view. After about FOUR hours on the road and […]


Suggestions for the Fast of Daniel

  We live in a reality where we’re constantly bombarded by various voices, at times, simultaneously.

It’s things that are not as they should be. It’s injustice that makes you angry… Too many wrong things! A feeling of helplessness takes over; sheer anguish. […]


Hatred, grudge, and forgiveness

  Hatred is a form of cancer that slowly kills its victim. The healing is free and simple: forgiveness. Yet, the patient wrongly thinks that revenge is the cure. Forgiveness is simple. Note that I didn’t say it’s easy. It is simple because it only depends on one’s decision. Deciding to forgive is not complicated […]


A winner’s secret

  We cannot live by encouragement or discouragement. Living this way results in a life of ups and downs—more downs than ups, actually. How many times have you felt like not getting out of bed in the morning to go to work or school but you did? At that moment, you overcame the feeling of […]
