for those who work for change

Letter to a young activist

Do not depend on the hope of results. When you are doing the sort of work you have taken on, essentially an apostolic work, you may have to face the fact that your work will be apparently worthless and even achieve no result at all, if not perhaps results opposite to what you expect. As you get used to this idea, you start more and more to concentrate not on the results but on the value, the righteousness, the truth of the work itself. And there too a great deal has to be gone through, as gradually you struggle less and less for an idea and more and more for specific people. The range tends to narrow down, but it gets much more real. In the end, it is the reality of personal relationships that saves everything.

You are fed up with words, and I don't blame you. I am nauseated by them sometimes. I am also, to tell the truth, nauseated by ideals and with causes. This sounds like heresy, but I think you will understand what I mean. It is so easy to get engrossed with ideas and slogans and myths that in the end one is left holding the bag, empty, with no trace of meaning left in it. And then the temptation is to yell louder than ever in order to make the meaning be there again by magic. Going through this kind of reaction helps you to guard against this. Your system is complaining of too much verbalizing, and it is right.

...the big results are not in your hands or mine, but they suddenly happen, and we can share in them; but there is no point in building our lives on this personal satisfaction, which may be denied us and which after all is not that important.

The next step in the process is for you to see that your own thinking about what you are doing is crucially important. You are probably striving to build yourself an identity in your work, out of your work and your witness. You are using it, so to speak, to protect yourself against nothingness, annihilation. That is not the right use of your work. All the good that you will do will come not from you but from the fact that you have allowed yourself, in the obedience of faith, to be used by God's love. Think of this more, and gradually you will be free from the need to prove yourself, and you can be more open to the power that will work through you without your knowing it.

The great thing after all is to live, not to pour out your life in the service of a myth: and we turn the best things into myths. If you can get free from the domination of causes and just serve Christ's truth, you will be able to do more and will be less crushed by the inevitable disappointments. Because I see nothing whatever in sight but much disappointment, frustration, and confusion...

The real hope, then, is not in something we think we can do, but in God, who is making something good out of it in some way we can not see. If we can do His will, we will be helping in this process. But we will not necessarily know all about it beforehand...

Enough of this. is at least a gesture....I will keep you in my prayers.

All the best, in Christ,

real hands

it is hands that work. hands that give. hands that create.

to my realino class, i am embarking on a very ambitious project. hahaha!
remember these photos i took of you during our fiesta? well, i want to make pictures for each of you.

the theme of course is REAL HANDS. i will take a picture of you and you should decide what to do with your hands on your face or anywhere on your head.

you are creative people and i know you will rise up to the handy challenge. hehe..
get your hands ready coz when i charge up my batteries i will ask you to pose.:)

when? anytime!

going full circle and getting dizzy

its been ages since i last posted anything sensible in this blog. a million things have passed as well. this is the new me!!! things are changing and this blog will too.

as you can see, my charlie background is an impulsive decision. cathy tells me, "ka-proud ba sa lovelife!" not really. maybe a little. but i grew tired of the little prince so i placed my real-life prince here. hahaha!!!

one never knows.

sometimes i feel like i've had enough of the teacher's life. i grow tired of reading the bible and textbooks over and over, tired of "creative" lesson plans, tired of the noise and teenage angst. sometimes i get tempted to yell at them and say "stop the drama. just live,awright!" then i see sad faces, and lost faces, and teary eyes, and quivering lips, and trembling hands...and its "shucks!" all over again. i feel guilty for disappointing all of you.

im just going full circle. i'm back to where i was before. knowing nothing. and i do not know you at all. it seems like i've overextended my stay and i am no longer wanted nor needed. i feel that many times. and its not your fault. no. i have passed and the longer i stay the longer will our misery be.

this makes me dizzy. this makes me sad. when can i give up,ha?
