This blog has not been updated for a long time because I deliberately busied myself with many other things. There was the help requested by my sister, my Mandarin class at the Ateneo, reading a book ( which I hope to share later), updating www.Geotayo.com and attending the Self-Transformation Seminar.
What is this self-transformation seminar? Well, by its name alone, it is a 3-day seminar which is all about transforming one's self. It is all about making constant changes in the self in order to achieve self-actualization or to reach one's fullest potential. Is it possible?
Of course it is. I learned from the sermon of a priest years ago that if there is no hope that man can change, then there is really no hope for the world. But then they always say hope springs eternal.
In the seminar, we reviewed our understanding of life in general including beliefs, assumptions, and attitudes. The speakers emphasized that many or all of our day-to-day actions and reaction are due to push-buttons or unreleased fears which we have accumulated in the past. Then values were clarified and tools were given for self-mastery.
The seminar was held at the headquarter of Theosophical Society of the Philippines in Quezon City. It was mainly conducted by a superb public speaker, the TS president, Mr. Vic Hao Chin. He was ably assisted by Atty. Flor, Bimboy and his wife Jo. Most of the participants were workers of NGOs, students, and interested individuals like me.
I attended this seminar because "Gustong kong bumait pero di ko magawa".
