He - Part 5
Perhaps his thoughts on idealism and his belief in himself that he could live up to it have finally turned their backs on him. He takes a situation, makes a prediction and waits for his prediction to come through, always thinking of the worst that could happen, yet hoping for the best. Call him a pessimist. He’s learning to cope with reality since there’s a high probability that his pessimistic predictions come through. It’s a safe bet playing on the principal that the higher you are, the longer the journey down. Having a low expectation allowed him to fall slightly each time, letting him accustom to the imperfections of this world rather than falling a long way down and being unable to get up.
He wants to blame someone, hurt someone, but he knows he has to learn sacrifice and unconditional kindness. So with each opportunity, he lets it slide. He hurts them anyway. This was unintentional at the later stage of course. What is done cannot be taken back. Words exchanged cannot be retracted. If he didn’t mean something, why would he have said it in the first place? The best he could do was to offer an explanation for his behaviour, implying that what he did in the first place had no weight.
He meant no harm. Initially, he was just furious. Being furious, he felt the need to hurt someone. When rationality spoke to him, she got through to him and he knew he never meant any harm.
The only person he blamed was himself. He “needed” too much. He was furious at the way he felt. He was furious at the attention he required. He was furious that he was on the brink of obsession. He was furious that his neediness had blended with selfishness. He was furious at his sudden lack of independence. He was furious, just furious.
There were many other things going through his mind. If they were to be contained here, the entire internet could not even begin to contain his thoughts.

If I were...
If I were shipwrecked and alone on an island, my goal would be to try to return home, to where my family and friends are. While gathering wood to try to build a watercraft to escape the island, I also decide to build a shelter for myself. I am such a perfectionist that I decide to build a fanciful shelter. Day by day, I seek out materials to better my temporary “home” and lose sight of the goal (to return home) and is totally distracted from building my watercraft (the way to get home). What I have done is to make my transitional phase (the island) more comfortable while losing sight of the ultimate goal. At the end of the day, if I finally get down to building my watercraft, I would have to leave my fanciful shelter behind and my hard work of building it would have meant nothing. I may however try my best to cling on to my life at the island and try to postpone leaving the island. But any logical man would tell me that that would be silly since I would feel incomplete without your family and friends.
Now, my life on Earth as a person is temporary as well. The goal is to have eternal happiness. I too should focus solely on that. The way is love. Love is such a beautiful gift bestowed upon us. We seldom ask others “Why are you happy?” Perhaps the answer to that is love. It is such a wonderful thing to love others (family, friends, acquaintances and strangers) and even a greater thing to see them sincerely smile because of your action. It rewards with such a wonderful feeling yet it remains challenging. I get distracted from my goal (and loving others) by trying to seek other self-interests leading away from my original goal. These distractions include an obsession with academics, money, career, leisure and decadent lifestyles. Let’s say I have a fancy career, lots of cash, spouse and kids. At the end of the day, my goal was probably to build a comfortable place for a transitional phase. If my goal was to feel at home on Earth, I would have accomplished it and I would try to cling on to my dear temporary life and eventually will have to give it up in dying. Wouldn’t that be silly? Why the attachment to the temporal? Set your sights on the ultimate goal.
- I was studying halfway and I wanted to complete my set of notes before lab started.
- I was too tired to start a debate in which there would be no 2-way communication.
- There wasn't enough time. All my discussions about religion are rather lengthy. My last discussion was more than an hour long standing up.
- I wasn't in the correct frame of mind to talk about God.
Maybe next time.

In the evening, pQ, ling ling and I went to eat Teochew porridge at Yishun 81 coffeeshop! When I came home, it was just in in time to go for dinner (part 2) at a western food place at Punggol Park with Jansen, Pat and my father! I drank Lychee Martini! I finally got to try it. The alcohol content was pretty high.
Anyway, I ate 2 dinners to compensate for missing lunch!
