With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world, be cheerful. Strive to be happy! How hard could that be?

Comment: Tis is easy as 1 – 2 – 3. Ang pasumbingay sa Desiderata, palihog basaha sa blog ni Sir Candid O. Wenceslao OF CEBU! . Si Sir Candid of CEBU…mao ang manunulat sa blog titulo: RebelMind. Siya usa sa mga bloggistang nakapanindot ning panagtagbo: Siya ang manunulat nga matuod.

Maka lingaw basahon ang iyang blog. Ambot kung ngano pong RebelMind man jud pud ang napili nga TITULO sa iyang blog . REBELMIND: morag isog ra man kaayo. alternatibo nga ngan is FreeMind, pero tungod sa akong familiarity sa The Rebel – gisulat  ni  Albert Camus!  Morag  OKEY,  LANG sad GIOD SA AKOA ANG REBELMIND.

Pagmention giod sa pangalan ni Albert Camus, gilupad kita sa “Thesis Time” ni Migo Ddz – usa ka exodiano… During that time mora ba og “pamahaw, paniudto, panihapon ni aMigong Ddz, si Albert Camus.

Ang hilomon og lawom sa pamalandong nga akong nahimamat – oy, GRABE nang motabi – – Nahimo nang preacher sa… Kinabuhi! (Life), Trabaho ! (Works!) og Ang Pilosopiya ni Albert Camus! Mohagit na og debate sa hisgutanang Camus.  To think back, the conviction had to be that way… NO CHOICE MY FRIEND…NO CHOICE… THESIS NGA DAAN! You became your “THESIS…”

Ah! ang kaisog sa kabatan-on akong nahinumduman, Marso 29, 2009.  “Desiderata”, buhi nga pulong hangtud karon …

Note: Tungod sa akong kahadlok nga dili ko mainvite ni  Pope sa VATICAN…(ah! kaambisyoso pud baya ni Darbs…gibaligya na giod ang iyang kalag para lang makapa picture ni Santo Papa. Mga bay, remembrance ba! naunsa pud na sila . . . mangabisyon ka man lang, kadto na giong matuman og dali lang himoon…simpol  HAPPINESS!)

Akong apo suginlan ko ikaw, kung 70 years old kana og wala na gioy laing lingaw you can think of something like a REMEMBRANCE  with the Pope – – PICTURE taking  1 OR 2 is  GOOD ENOUGH.

Picture WITH SANTO PAPA? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Strict policy – NO PHOTOSHOPS – – NO GIMP -purity is needed…  PURE PICTURES…GENUINE NGA  ENGKWENTRO NI SANTO PAPA…Kung  silingan pa giod silang Black Pope; HELLO, BLACK POPE…are you a myth? or real? one snapshot me with the Black Pope is  good enough. Can’t ask for more. Amen.

Matud pa pagkahuman mabasa ang Max Ehrmann, M! parekoi akong gikinahanglang ang DESIDERATA! Salamat sa imong pasumbingay; kalag mibayaw pag-usab sa langit ning desyerto sa pagtoo.

M Max Ehrmann mao ang tampo ni RMind. Kakunsabo kuno aron ipalapnag ang MILAGROSONG M SA BLOGSTAT. Kana ganing atong gitawag sa Pilipinhong Kultura nga SAKAY SAKAY SA PANAHON?

Matud pa, kaila nimo ni sila Darbs?

Sabat ko pa si Max Ehrmann? Of course! DESIDERATA! hellow!

Bay,  RebelMind sa wala ko pa MAKILALA si Max Ehrmann sa iyang Desiderata may makilala ako nga Max Surban…

Enough said.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.
