anu nga ba ang meaning kapag fino-form natin ang hand gesture na heart?


I went to mass in Don Bosco this afternoon, just like any other Sundays. The thing that made it special is the priest’s homily. Ibang klase si father. hehehe napakinig talaga ako sa homily nya, as in mataimtim na pakikinig. He asked, “alam ba tlga natin ang significance ng heart?” shempre no one answered, may follow up question pa.. “panu ba natin ginagawa yung symbol na heart sa kamay?” napaisip din ako bigla. then he started explaining.. di ba pinagdidikit natin yung 2 kamay natin, so we make a bridge, ibig sabihin nun, we make bridges sa ibang tao, you cant just love yourself, walang taong walang feelings.. then the next step to making a heart gesture is you bend your fingers to form the shape itself. It simply means hindi tayo bato, we bend for others, ndi tayo stiff, minsan we make sacrifices to the point na ginagawa natin lahat para dun sa taong mahal natin – kaya we bend, we reach out. Oo nga naman, I find it funny but what he’s saying is definitely true.


And the thing that struck me the most: di ba ang puso natin nagbebeat in and out? beating in means we love ourselves, shempre and beating out means we love others. Bottom line: we love ourselves just as we love others. May point dba? sometimes nga we love others more than ourselves, to the point na we lose ourselves.


at ndi pa natapos dun si father, he compared the heart to a sunglass. Sabi nya: “dba pag mainit o nasisilaw tayo sa araw we use sunglasses? and sunglasses have different shades, and when we use them, nakikita natin yung person sa color ng shade ng sunglasses. Siguro kung ganun natin tignan yung tao sa paligid natin, tulad ng sunglasses na may shade na love, siguro wala tayong problema ngayon. Walang naghihiwalay, walang nag aaway. If only we see people not by their physical appearances, their imperfections or attitudes, but we look at the person with love, mas maganda di ba? mas matindi sa acceptance: unconditional love. If you don’t accept the person for who they are, then it is not love.” tae si father, natameme talaga ako sa kanya, pero totoo lahat eh. tumagos nga… If only we look at that person with love, susunod na dun yung acceptance and most of all trust. At shempre when you love others, you definitely love God na din. Ang daming pumasok sa isip ko while listening to him. May mga questions na nasagot, but still meron pa ding left unanswered.
