PONDO NG PINOY slogan “Anumang magaling, kahit maliit, basta’t malimit, ay patungong langit.

It is about accumulating 25cents everyday for our poor neighbors. It is not only about the money. It is about having the commitment to fill your bottle everyday so that other people who are really in need will benefit from it.

I realized that this is my chance to give back to the community in my own little way. I am fond of keeping “alkansiya” (piggybank). I drop my loose change their. So why not make one for PONDO NG PINOY? The green plastic bottle on the right side is my PONDO NG PINOY collector. I just printed their logo and attached it to the bottle to make it more appealing. I am making a lot of these to give to my son and my siblings. I want them to practice the value of sharing and loving. We are not rich but we are blessed in other ways. There are more people who are even less fortunate than us. I just hope that after you read this blog, you will also start making your pondo ng pinoy collector.

Let’s make a difference.

Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives. He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him for another.

He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the difficult times.

The King’s 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her!

One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and wondered, I now have four wives with me, but when I die, I’ll be all alone.” Thus, he asked the 4th wife, “I loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?” “No way!” replied the 4th wife and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.

The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, “I loved you all my life. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?” “No!” replied the 3rd wife. “Life is too good! When you die, I’m going to remarry!” His heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, “I have always turned to you for help and you’ve always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?” “I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!” replied the 2nd wife. “At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave.” Her answer struck him like a bolt of lightning, and the King was devastated.

Then a voice called out: “I’ll go with you. I’ll follow you no matter
where you go.” The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was very skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved, the King said, “I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!”

In truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives: Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it will leave us when we die. Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others. Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave. And our 1st wife is our Soul, often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world. However, our Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go. Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of us that will follow us to the throne of God and continue with us throughout Eternity.

Thought for the day: Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees, you’re in the perfect position to pray.

How to have an ideal relationship

By Lorrin L. Lee, Ph.D.

A relationship is a natural, logical, and harmonious association. T

his happens when people WANT to be with each other and look forward to sharing goals, time, a

nd activities together. Here are fun and easy ways to a loving – ideal relationship.

1. TALK. Always in pleasant tones. No shouting or swearing at each other. Speak only positive words with gentleness and kindness. Communicate daily. This is the highest and most caring form of love.

2. WALK TOGETHER more. Take 30 minutes a day. To exercise, communicate , release emotions, share ideas, goals, and to clear up any misunderstandings. It’s okay to hold hands, too.

3. Do NEW and DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES together. Enjoy a new restaurant with different dish, a concert, a unique vacation, attend a class together, something exciting both of you can plan and look forward to. Learn together and you’ll be happier.

4. Give each other GIFTS often. Like a magazine subscription, a special book, a warm bath and massage, flowers, surprise experiences, favorite foods, and the many other special things your mate would enjoy and get excited about.

5. Write LOVE NOTES. Hide them around the home – in clothing, pockets, in the kitchen drawer and secret places. Send some to his or her working place. Write a passionate love letter. Express your love in writing on exquisite stationery. Attach a gift certificate or a crispy $100 bill. Use your imagination and make it a fun surprise. And do it often!

6. DO NOT CRITICIZE, CONDEMN or COMPLAIN. This is a NO NO. Only praises. Acknowledge the goodness in each other. There is no place for negativity in a loving and lasting relationship ever! Your mate will do the right thing – as you lead by example.

7. ACHIEVE and MAINTAIN your IDEAL figure. It is a gift to yourself and your mate. A healthy and attractive body also promotes a healthy relationship.

8. Allow your partner to be RESPONSIBLE for his or her life. He or she has the right to determine his or her own reality and destiny. Always respect that choice. Both of you can live your life in your own way harmoniously. Treasure each other’s differences. Do your very best to make life easier and more fun for your mate.

9. Grow TOGETHER. At the same speed and direction – by sharing similar duties and activities. This will bond you together even more while building on fond memories. People who don’t grow together will complete their relationship and move on to lead separate lives. This is why most people divorce.

10. DO NOT BE POSSESSIVE. Don’t act as though you “own” your mate. Support, encourage each other’s way of living and individual interests. Be grateful in harmony.

11. TREASURE YOUR TIME TOGETHER. It could be your last. Look at it that way and you’ll always appreciate each other even more. Have NO reason for regrets. Spend time with each other doing all the things you both love to do. Do it now! Tomorrow may not come. So together – plan now for the best of the best of your lives.

12. It is OKAY to DO whatever pleases BOTH of you. In private, there are no limits on what you can do together with each other as long as both benefit and agree. Whatever other people think of what you do or say is none of your business! So, go ahead experiment – and satisfy each other to the limit!

13. BE OPEN. To new ideas, experience, and relationships. This is the way for fun, growth, and expansion in your lives. The more you LEARN together…the happier you both will be.

14. FORGIVE and LOVE. Release the past at every moment. Live in the present. Plan for the future – together…and joyously!

15. BE FREE of resentments, anger, jealousy, hatred, and envy toward each other. This will open both of you to even greater respect for each other. Be thankful for your mate’s kindness.

16. ELIMINATE ARGUING TOTALLY. Anywhere, anytime. Especially while eating or in bed. Each person has a right to his or her own opinion. Respect each other’s ideas, philosophy, and outlook on life. Be a great listener.

17. SMILE and LAUGH with each other. A prescription for aliveness and health. Don’t take yourself or your mate too seriously. Lighten up and laugh more often. Remember, your smiles are thru gifts to each other.

18. LOOK INTO EACH OTHER’S EYES often. See the love, truth, and beauty in your mate. The more you look into each other’s eyes lovingly—the more you will love each other more deeply! Do this daily. It’s very powerful and fun!

19. TOUCH each other TENDERLY everyday. Hug, kiss, caress. These are wonderful ways to show caring and love. We all need it. More than we care to admit!

20. Develop a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. Good food promotes a healthier state of mind for a more meaningful relationship. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, whole wheat, grains, high fiber, low fat, low calorie foods. Drink more water. Get more rest. Keep yourself cleansed, nourished, and balanced.

21. Keep your home, car, kitchen, closets, rooms—simple, neat, clean, and organized. This will help promote a tranquil setting for greater peace and happiness in your lives. It really works! Begin this—today!

22. DRESS YOUR BEST. Be appropriate, neat, clean, and proud of your appearance. How you look, especially in public—enhances your mate’s choice and appearance, too!

23. SHARE in financial matters. If you are married, communicate with each other on all your finances. If you have a family business, be sure both are informed on profits, losses, expenses, etc. Set your financial priorities together. This will help to strengthen your relationship that is built on trust and sharing. Enjoy building your financial future together. This is important.

24. ACCEPT each other TOTALLY. Exactly the way both of you are. Do not try to change each other’s uniqueness. Allow your mate to change if and when he or she desires. This promotes everlasting peace.

25. Say I LOVE YOU. Daily, many times. Expecially when you wake up and before you go to sleep. Say it for the rest of your lives together. Never ever take love for granted. Express it verbally as well as with action. We all need to hear that magical phrase. It reaffirms how we feel at that moment. So, fill your lives with millions of moments of love by saying “ I love you”.
