February: The Month of Publication

Originally posted on Notebook Publishing:

Notebook Publishing was born out of real passion and genuine devotion for not only the book industry but also for the writing community. All aspects of the book-publication process—from an author brainstorming ideas for characters, plots, and twists and turns, through to a reader rating and reviewing a recent read—are all fascinating, exciting stepping stones on a book’s journey. The people tracing such steps vary in so many ways—in every possible way—but intrinsically are identical in others: we are all lovers of books.

Writing is a labour of love in countless ways. It comprises challenges and obstacles, moments of despair, thoughts of ‘Can I do really do this?’, self-doubt as to whether penned pages are trash or treasure.

But then there is the other side.

The feeling of holding a finished manuscript, feeling its weight, knowing you, a writer, has created something tangible that could really make a difference—even to…

DUTY

DUTY

For pnp-saf (44 heroes)

You claimed your duty when I asked for your

promise. A maze runner in the nameless wild,

you dazed territories for defense.  Like a full

moon, your eyes was a panther’s.  Like fire,

your spirit, fierce.   Valour clothe you, a pledge

of obedience.  44 silent guns amidst legends!

44 silent guns, a tact of bravery!  44 true roars,

a successful kill!  Rest the endless wind of Spirit!

In the charred terrains, after an immense duty –

Be there immaculate.   Elsewhere is Holy.

For Good Workers: Generosity

It is sad to hear from some people who works well, that they aren’t paid justly. Still there are others who could not get approved reimbursements, and refund paid contributions.

Some private entities (big or small) aren’t giving what is due to Caesar. The management makes up all sorts of reasons till the hand-to-mouth employee silently leaves, after the company has sucked their honest efforts of work.

If so in bankruptcy be transparent and settle for considerations. Usually, these situations happen to teachers in private centers, employees from agencies, cargo handlers, and temporary workers, among others. Why can’t they get their just pay (professionals and experienced)?

On the other hand, there are also workers who complain a lot like some cab drivers harassing passengers, to get “some plus amount” because they say that the route’s quite far, or there is traffic. Why can’t they wait for the passenger to add in his/her initiative? Or he could tell his deals before the passenger rides the taxi not during the ride, so the passenger could think freely.

Also, there are people in line with domestic jobs asking for a lot of pay (more than fair enough), not thinking they are lucky enough than the others in the business hub, commuting everyday, but being paid less.

Truly, the unfairness of things! The world is full of trickery, complaints, and grave deceit. Why couldn’t we make it easier for each other to progress and just work together fairly? The taste of money, honestly and hardly earned is the sweetest, as the payment of money fairly given for work is pure kindness and an act of justice. Generosity in any angle is sharing, and a big effort of sacrifice for the giver (in any way, money or talents).

Tips: For Employers and Employees

1. Be generous with time and rewards.

Some people count a lot. Time is man’s basic resource. It has to be paid well. It has to be consumed well. It has to be used with meaning and sense.

2. Be generous with service.

Work the extra mile as to Og Mandino’s scroll of success. Good service can never be quantified. Both the giver and the receiver are happy and fulfilled. To serve and help each other is a vocation in life and could be applied in any field of endeavour.

3. Be generous with love.

If you work with charity in your heart, work will be easy and light. Business and duties will be peacefully accomplished, and workplaces will be like families. The acceptance of each colleague or co-worker is helpful to all, as admonishing each other can be done easily with respect.

JANUARY 29, 2015

Last night, I have been thinking how these policemen died.

News, witnesses, and our sentiments cry for justice – but no one really knew how they bled in the encounter.

My words could not even sketch how in their last breath raised their guns and crawled to save each other.

They were at work and willed to serve while they worked.

Nothing mattered, but their service to God and men.

When someone dies, in his thoughts is only God, in his thoughts is only one good act for everyone or of service for the good of the multitude.

Were they abandoned by leaders?

How could this be, when leaders are supposed to collaborate or help each other?

Why this wrong timing, all this mess, and fucking shit?
