The last time, I took a 3-month hiatus… this time, I doubled that. Besides the difference in the length of time, this latest “disappearance” of my Self did not cause me to miss Me… well, not as much anyway because this time, I was fully present in every single experience – the joyful ones as well as those that had caused me sleepless nights and misery.

Every step I took, or did not take, was accompanied by an acute knowing of the why and how… I was my Witness, just as surely as the Universe was.

The last six months saw the fall of my business, the shattered dreams… It was a period fraught with uncertainties, disappointments, betrayals and yet… it was also the time when I discovered much of myself… exactly the kind of stuff I am made of. It was also the time of great emotional test… of relationships, built and destroyed… of love, found and lost, and found again…

I have grown and yet I have found the child within… I have gone beyond the conscious to face my demons… though I know there are more ahead… those that persist to hide in the shadows of Life.

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.  What you’ll discover will be wonderful.  What you’ll discover is yourself.”  ~ Alan Alda

It has been 3 months since the last time I wrote in here… Hadn’t realised how much time has flown by… I so miss me…

When I said I was moving on, I meant that I wanted to move on with you by my side…

When I said that I am better off without you, I meant that it is best if it was just you and I…

When I said I was over you, I meant that I can’t let you know how much I love you, knowing that you will never be mine…

Maya is Back!

Children by Kahlil Gibran

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,

which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them,

but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children

as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,

and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;

For even as He loves the arrow that flies,

so He loves also the bow that is stable

Marriage ~ A Poem by Kahlil Gibran

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.

You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.

Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness,

And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

And stand together, yet not too near together:

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

Hello ladies… and the gents too of course… 🙂

I would like to share a little nugget of very useful info for those of you who are still deciding the dinner venue for celebrating Valentine’s Day with your beloved.

If you are in Singapore, this Valentine’s Day, Gaea Spa Solutions (GSS) is collaborating with Porta Porta Italian Restaurant @ Stanley St to offer you and your beloved an extra special Valentine’s Day Dinner with an exquisite menu and special Gaea EssenceTM Valentine’s Day Gifts for all couples who book through GSS – all for only S$99 nett per couple (non-promo price at S$130 per couple)!

For more information and reservation details to enjoy this promo, do check out The Gaea Gazette.

For all the ladies out there,

Come check out this new website, www.theblessedexpedition.com.

Structured like a story, this website invites you to follow Maya’s  life journey as she seeks for this elusive City of Vera (aka. the City of Higher Truth). Along the Maya will learn more about herself – the inner light being that she is. There are lessons to be learnt, activities to engage and countless other personal growth resources that will interest all of us who are on our own journey.

If you have guessed it, yes you are right; A Blessed Expedition IS an expansion of Blessedly Woman. But fret not, Blessedly Woman will still be active. Though both may seem similar especially in the types of topics being presented, i.e. personal development, they are quite different in their structure and to some extent, their contents.

It’ll be more accurate to say that they complement each other and not for one to be a replacement of the other.

I hope that you will enjoy reading Maya’s story as I did writing it…. Just make sure you check in daily as her story will be built chapter by chapter each day.

Always with Metta 🙂

Up Next: Synchronicity

For the next Personal Development Tip, I will be discussing the magic of Synchronicity.

If you want to know more on how to effectively harness the blessed energy of this mystical but real concept, do stay tuned!
