the one about joy

photo by: HERSLEY

there are bajilions of peeps out there, i myself included, who have a hard time allowing good personal feelings to accumulate inside over a prolonged period of time. i don’t know where it’s coming from, but for some reason, many of us have a very hard time feeling good about ourselves, no?

it’s almost as if we’re doing something wrong. (what’s wrong?)

there seems to be a little voice at the back of our heads giving us advice like “who do you think you are feeling this way?”, “saya mo ngayon ah, bukas sige ka”, or “you must think you’re special? well…”.

well, i don’t quite know why many of us do this to ourselves, but how many of us have been stopped moving forward to do a lot of good because of these so-called one-liners?

i myself, being agnostic, do not believe that god wants us to live an existence of excruciating pain here on planet earth. god wants us to enjoy life…to find our higher self and rejoice in it. it’s not about self-centeredness…it’s about giving and caring for others, as well as ourselves…

the body, mind and soul need sustenance and at times, happiness. not allowing yourself to experience happiness diminishes your opinion of the value you have in this world. each one of us is important and has so much to give. evil itself goes to great lengths to beat up on us…we don’t have to continue the process di ba???

i now i now easier than done, but does prolonged desperation/emo-emohan do us good?

i’m also not a big believer in the idea that to be a true christian you must suffer. even keeping a positive outlook many of us suffer enough. for me, to give in itself has tremendous joy. to not accept this joy is to diminish the giving.

to give is to receive and to receive is to give…. i thank you bow

    Written and Directed by Charliebebs Gohetia

    Produced by Brooklyn Park Pictures

    TYG is a Visayan film with a gay lingo twist.

    Tired of losing in all the beauty competitions in Davao City, five dysfunctional gay beauty pageant veterans decide to travel north to Cagayan de Oro City, in the island of Mindanao, with a mission to conquer the grandest competition of beauty, personality and brains in the province.

    They believe that being city dwellers, gays in the province will never stand a chance against them.

    And who says gay films are just sex films after all?
