I trace my steps to the origin of my spiritual journey.
Recently, I’ve experienced a change.
I don’t know if it was a change in heart, mind, spiritual, or a combination of the three, but it rippled through my entire life. It didn’t happen in one instance. I could track back the initial changes 2 years back and it’s been a long time coming since then. Continue reading “Spiritual Huas: My Origins”
No place like home.
I love staying at home for a night of watching TV, playing games, playing guitar, or just kicking back. It’s a peaceful enjoyment from the simple pleasures of your own home. But there’s a negative connotation about homebodies. People who’d rather stay at home doing the usual than go for a night out are often thought of as unadventurous and unproductive. That isn’t always the case. For me, I enjoy going out with friends or an adventurous trip, but at the end of the day, we all go home and there’s value in that.

A door to different worlds.
Books are an amazing resource. On a practical level, they are tangible tools used to archive and share information that can be pasted down through the ages. In a deeper sense, they transport the mind to different universes and enwrap us in tales of fantasy and wonder. When in tune to a great book, you leave the living world and get lost somewhere in your brain. You forget about your worries to focus on the characters in the book, and yet when its done, we learn something about ourselves. Continue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 8 – Books”
A far-off memory that’s like a scattered dream.
Memories are some of the most valuable human treasures. These intangible photographs link emotions and sensory feelings through time to take us back to a part of our past. Never knowing when they’ll be created, yet instantly enjoyable once they are. Continue reading “30 Day of Gratitude: Day 7 – Memory”
Love the beauty of Mother Earth.
I have a deep appreciation and respect for nature. I believe that nature plays a key role in aligning yourself with inner knowledge. After all, it is the great supplier! All of our foods and materials that support our life come from nature. Even the very air in our breath is provided by the earth and our environment.

My gratitude has no limits.
I love sound. I have from a young age even if I didn’t know it back then. I would love cartoon characters with unique voices and try to recreate them. As I grew, I picked up instruments and self-taught myself guitar. Into my late teens, I discovered music production and audio engineering and instantly knew that was the career path for me. Recently, during my final year in college, I discovered sound design for film and television and fell in love again.

Be grateful for what fuels you.
Food is an easy thing to be grateful for. Considering that our bodies literally need it to function and that we traditionally eat 3 or more times a day, food is always appreciated. We look forward to our next meal with great anticipation, thrive from the feeling of a full stomach, and eagerly plan out our favorite foods. Odds are that when you’re biting into that first spoonful of goodness to satisfy your hunger, your mind and body giving thanks involuntarily. Continue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 4 – Food”
Drawing from my well of experiences for gratitude.
I might not be the most qualified person to ask for color, but I’ve witnessed both sides of the spectrum for those who experience color. On one side, is my colorblind father and I’ve seen the effects that the absences of color has on his perspective. On the other, is my sister, who’s an artist. I notice how she perceives color with a heighten attention to detail and how she can appreciate it on a higher level. Continue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 3 – Color”
Gratitude in abundance!
Technology is all around us. Our cars that get us to works, the refrigerator that maintains our food supply, the bulbs that light our homes, even the device you read this on is all technology. It’s constant assistance has allowed the human race to achieve so many things with unlimited potentials still left to accomplish. It’s about time I appreciate technology!

We often neglect our sense of smell.
Unless we come across a foul oder or a delicious meal, we sometimes forget that our nose are constantly working. With each inhale, we receive aromas from the world around us. Everything, from people to places, has a scent that are either distinct and unique or familiar and welcoming. Regardless of pleasantness or repulsiveness, a strong whiff can stop us in our tracks and send our minds elsewhere. Continue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 1 – Smell”
