a good heart is better than all the heads in the world

i think that we should always think closely at why we do our actions.

just this afternoon, before my classes start, i ordered my “lunch” at the local cafeteria. i finished what i was eating when i realized that i haven’t even paid.

but then, i instantly said to those i am with that i better pay for good karma.

that is when i realized that i did the thing for the wrong reason.

often, our actions are influenced by thoughts that are not appropriate. or we do things for all the wrong reasons. an example of which is personal gain. will personal gain ever replace social responsibility? i don’t think so.

i just want to say is that we better take a closer look at why we do things. and maybe, we’ll have change in the way we do them.

A good heart is better than all the heads in the world. -Edward Lytton

elections are won by men and women chiefly because most people vote against somebody rather than for somebody

February 26, 2009 at 3:03 pm (thoughts, up)

i had the weirdest dream last night.

well, as i do not remember most of my dreams, this one is the weirdest of all those i can remember.

in conjuncture with the university elections yesterday, it was the scenario of the said dream.

what happened was that the Engineering Representative to the USC happened to be me. and, the fact that i wasn’t even a candidate is too suspicious. however, due to the fact the people were writing my name down instead of the other candidates, i won.

which is weird. haha. in real-life elections, this wouldn’t happen, or would it?

or this might mean that there will be a greater thing that will happen. i know there will be, but it doesn’t concern me or my being an engineering representative.

there is so much going on right now and this is the only year i’ve ever felt politics do so much – good or bad. i’ve had my fair share of disappointments and satisfactions regarding our political scenario. may it be small scale like the organization elections to a much wider scale of the university elections.

i am in the middle of things, people were persuading me to vote for them and some just don’t care about me and what power i have as a voter.

what disappointed me most is that people will really do anything to gain power, to take a position they know they don’t deserve to take and to embarrass others for self-fulfillment.

what’s the use of that anyway.

by writing this blog entry, i have realized what my dream wanted to tell me. it’s like, we never know what might happen with these elections. but one thing is for sure, they never turn out the way we expect them to be.
