KONTING PAGTITIKA SA PANAHON NG KWARESMA


I guess I’ve said enough… and the concept remains unchanged so here it is again!

Aliwan Avenue

Mas magaan ang buhay ko ngayon.  Not just in terms of comfortable living but spiritually as well.  Kaya hinahayaan ko na lang ang ilang mga kakilala na tuklasin nila sa kanilang sarili ang dapat kalagyan ng kanilang mga sarili sa masalimuot na mundong ito.  Natutuwa rin ako sa mga taong halos hindi na inaalintana ang anumang makaritwal na pananampalatayang nakabalot sa maraming sekta at kultong nakapalibot sa kanila.
Oo, maraming mga taong kahit ang Banal na Katuturan ay pinanghihimasukang gamitin para sa mga mortal na intensyon.
Meron nga akong kakilala na kunwari ay hitik ang loob sa pagsasamba sa tinatawag niyang ‘Nazareno’ nguni’t ang katuturan ng kanyang pagkatao ay labis na nakasandal sa mapanggamit na kagawian.  Lahat ng kanyang galaw ay pinapatawan niya ng presyo kahit na hindi naman angkop sa kanyang mga ginagawa.

Hindi naman dahil sa ako ay tinatamad na o di kaya’y wala nang ma-copy/paste.  It just so happened na biglang natulala ang thoughts ko dahil naging busy sa aking muling pagsabak sa mundo ng pangungulet sa madaling araw hanggang tanghali.  Napag-isip-isip ko ring kailangan din segurong mag-chill dahil wala naman masyadong earth-shaking happening sa showbiz dahil Kwaresma nga at kalapastanganan nang isipin na makidawdaw sa daigdig ng pagkukunwari ang isang katulad ko na komportable na sa level of decency na narating ko (anowww?).

Yes, TIKA is the word.  TIKA as in mag-introspect at sisiirin ang kalalimlalimang himaymay ng ating mga katinuan kung TAMA bang ang TAMA ay hindi dapat mabahiran ng MALI at hanapan ng lugar at katuturan ang MALI sa bawa’t itinaTAMAng MALI… at higit sa lahat ang pagtamasa ng kasiyahang matatamo sa bawa’t MALIng itaTAMA sa panahon ng PAGMUMUNI-MUNI at…
