It’s always important to keep ourselves in check in whatever we do, vis-à-vis our purposes, and the check of checks comes in a grand package including a vibrant relationship with your God. This week’s Word is “spirituality”.
The key to understanding everything, especially about yourself, is all about asking WHY. It leads to a deeper appreciation of your thoughts, words, and actions – and thus empowers you to live a better life well anchored on something eternal. Our entire beings are put into perspective: our underlying reason and purpose.
This week, we cover a word that conveys the spirit that this blog aims to instill in the hearts and minds of its readers and writers – that things should be unified and whole. This week’s Word is “integrity”.
Perhaps some of us, fueled to take our passion to the next level, are still hesitant, regardless, to do so – for any reason.

This week, we cover a concept that is both ubiquitous and very deep-reaching, especially in Chinese society, where it began. Without at least gaining a proper understanding of what it’s about, it will be difficult and awkward if not impossible to navigate through East Asian society. This week’s Word is “face”, translated into classical Chinese as 面 (miàn).
Would you choose to race, or to accept a call? And would the race be worth it, or not? I do know the call is worth it. I invite you to reflect on answering your vocation as opposed to being engaged in careerism.
Sadly taken for granted today, it is always helpful to be reminded to practice this starting with yourself. We advocate this for the world, but we should begin living it out ourselves. This week’s Word is “peace”.
Last week, we talked about enlightenment. This week, we talk about the substance of enlightenment, one that is unique to each and every one of us – and thus what we are obliged to share with others. This week’s Word is “wisdom”.
The Purpose Driven Life is a master in showing us the eternal truths God has laid out for us. Through a 40-day spiritual journey, it teaches us five Purposes that we are to always keep in mind while holding on to our God-given individuality. I invite you to embark on the same journey!
