A combination of beauty, intelligent, intelligence and intelligentsia…
Wow… I FEEL GOOD! You know what, folks?! I got a response (uncensored) from Miss Kepayang this afternoon… Thanks anyway, Miss K! I’m flattered, actually… Oooh! Ooops! No, No! Look for other Mr. K and/or Dato’ K, please, as I’m currently under the “magnifying glass“. Let me recommend Mr. President (of USA (B)) to you. He told me few days ago that he’s not yet an old man; well, you do know what I mean, lah!
Well, this (ahem!) lady Miss Kepayang reminds me of the story of Judith in the Old Testament. Judith’s story is amazing! With her beauty and intelligence – special gifts given by God – has finally helped her to save her people from the oppression of the Assyrians, i.e. by chopping off the head of the Assyrian army chief general named Holofernes (sometimes spelt as “Holophernes“).
So, what’s the moral of Judith’s story? Yup, in order to resist the self-proclaimed “god” – King Nebuchadnezzar – (read: tyranny), we must “chop off” Holofernes’ head (read: the current gomen, lah!). So, folks, do not feel discouraged or disheartened, as help is on the way – God willing, Insya Allah! And do keep your fighting spirits in HIGH ESTEEM, my friends! Well, if you don’t mind, you can spend your time reading Judith’s amazing story here. There are lots of things to be learned, actually…
And now, as usual, here come the goodies for the day! It’s specially “crafted” as part of “The Flame of Political Change 2009 – 2011“. For those of you who love to study tactics created by Sun Tzu, you can accessed it here.
By the way, during my “routine meditation” three days ago, I’ve found the following reflection very inspiring. Yup, it does reflect on the real world situation that affects everybody’s life. Read on…
Sometimes society finds it difficult to come to grips with the evils it has done. It tries to make excuses, saying: “it was the best choice we had at the time” or “we didn’t know better”. Jesus says that there’s a link between what we know and what we are responsible for, and that this is true of whatever groups, cliques, neighborhoods, ethnicities or races we belong to, no less than it is true for each of us as a person. The truth is always out there and some will see it, eventually toppling the house of cards that backs evil.
God is often at work through those believers, who are victims of injustice. These victims are, after all, the ones who need the binding of wounds and the caring and the feeding and the teaching, the ones who need the support of a powerful God. Jesus made it clear that the relationship with our neighbors is the key to the health of our relationship with God. Society needs His kind of reconciliation more than ever. Jesus’ vision of reconciliation is the most important gift that Christian believers can give to the world and to political systems right now. (Friday, March 6, 2009 Reflection)
Based on this reflection, how come we say that politics or governmental practices should be separated from the Church or from other religions? Yup, it’s secularism!
So, in whatever you do, don’t forget to say your little prayer (regardless of your belief/religion), my friends! That’s the greatest power that we (should) have in ourselves. Everything is free from our Creator. The only keyword is A.S.K.
OK, before I log off, I just want to inform my readers that this is my 100th article for this blog since March 08, 2008! All in all, there are 103 articles, lah!
How about you, Mr. President (of USA (B))? I know! But then, please remind yourself not to spend too much time with Miss K!
