the path of love

Knowledge is food to our brain. Love nourishes the soul. Without love, it can be quite unsatisfying. Well, I seem to think so.

Is it easy to love? Yes i think so.. Is it easy to sustain love.. Well that's the challenge. But a rather satisfying one that would make any journey in life a valuable one.

With hope and faith, it seems to ease the pain. But is it pain that we're looking for? A kind of suffering that gets us addicted to love, more and more each day. Then again.. is it really called pain? That sharp throbbing feeling deep in your heart that makes it pound harder day by day and that sick feeling in your stomach that never seems to go away. Sounds like excitement more to me.. and here I notice how we label our feelings according to what we experience in our body, heart and soul.

Positivity vs negativity... obviously we each know what's best.

When being positive, one can gain so much yet one can also lose... there is a choice, there is an option... but when it comes to being negative, one just loses out. We take a risk when we remain positive... we take a chance.

That chance may just turn our whole life upside down, bring us rainbows all year long, shine our darkest nights forever and nourish our soul for eternity.

I would like to recommend a book for you to read: Peter Kreeft's MAKING SENSE OUT OF SUFFERING.

"God whispers in our pleasures but shouts in our pains. Pain is His megaphone to rouse a dulled world." C.S. Lewis

Hey.. I understand what you're trying to say. As long there is hope, you'll just have the reason to stay still and praying hard for your hope to come true. But then again, life isn't really fair at all. No matter how positive you are. That's just a matter of time when you're gonna have a breakdown. But it's a good thing that you're always being positive and loving. That, nobody can ever deny it. I like the way you write about love.It brings people to another level of life. To appreciate things around us. To love everyone that are still here while we still can. :)

You're the best person to talk about life and love. Don't ya think so? :)

our juliana as we know, hopeful and endlessly positive about love and life.

everytime I sit and ponder why this love will never work out for me, I forgot the fact that I have love, if not loved in return.

its always who else to love and how much more. its always about giving it, as it will never scarce.

we know what's best. obviously.

one thing amazing about human being, is our endurance level.

we endure pain, becos we want it badly, even intangible things like love.

I chose being negative, tho deep inside, I'm hopeful. I refrain from the affection, fretting that the small light of hope gets bigger.

but then ... there's juliana ... who will make us smile ... even some of us never had the pleasure of seeing her smiles from close proximity. we can feel it. (",)

a new word I learn from my new thai friends.

juliana, chan ra kun! (",)

jt : thanks.. i'll look it up.

tenno : best nye pergi singapore!!

isaac : i dont know if im the best person to talk to.. but if you want some one to tell you not to give up on something, u can try me! :) i'll try and give you all the best possible reasons not to :) trust me, i have my breakdowns.. where i crumble and just find it so hard to get up.. been there before.. just refuse to go back some more.. something i learned.. through out the years :)

abby : experience what ever you're experience.. if not loved in return by the one you truly love for now, you will be someday, as for now, i know you cherish the ones that love you and thank god that you have enough strength and enough love to go all around.. :)

Oh, and while you're at it, also look up this song WAY BACK INTO LOVE from the film MUSIC & LYRICS (if U haven't seen it already, that is). The melody's gr8, but pay close attention to the superb lyrics. They don't write songs like these anymore nowadays (not too many of them, anyway), but this one in my mind deserves a Grammy.

A snippet of lyrical magic:

"I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away;
Just in case I ever need 'em again someday;
I've been setting aside time;
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind."

Damn, I didn't know Hugh Grant could sing so well...

Juliana is the best person to talk to about life & love?Ye ke? :) Does it count making a phone call out of the pink moon for "reassurance" from someone 7000 miles away?I saw clippings of your SYTUCD...what can I say, limelight stealer- as always.Can't comment much on your "sponsored attire" though :p You know I will always be your biggest "critic".It's summer very soon- sila pack bag anda as I'll be waiting for you in the park with your "fish and chips"- but pls bring some cakoi for me okay?
Muuaahhh mmmuaaahhh mmmmuaaahhhs.
