DesertFishing’s 30 Most Read Posts

on pensive mood

It has been a year-round journey of silence, emptiness, boredom, inner world exploration, negotiation with cultures, and time of typing, at times with others, but mostly with myself and the Sacred that I have no idea how big is. Blogging is only a medium for exploring the bigness of God within and in the culture/s that is more or less familiar to me. The blogosphere is becoming a boundary-less arena of information and interaction. But at the end of the day, silence beckons me to go back to the fundamental question: how did this or that piece of information affect me, form me into a better person, hook me to my deepest desire to let the seed of the Sacred within grow and bear fruit? After one year of blogging, there are actually less tangible statistics to measure the growth especially in an area called spirituality because growth happens in silence, in our sleeping hours, much like the wordless rising of the sun on the east. Those growth are more inward – the joy of sharing, the boldness to get wrong, the weakness of being challenged or ignored, the consolation of being heard, the trembling before evil or fear, the lightness of living, the ecstasy of illumination, the desire to keep growing as a child heading Home. To realize that I am not alone in my desire and that there are the same desires out there curious of their names, this I suspect is why these posts are the most read.

  1. ang number one nimo nga blog entry

    A grain of Desert Sand

    Nabasa nako ni sya May 12, 2009 ug sa tinoud naa koy nasugdan ug sulat sulat but for some reasons ug ambot kung unsay gidangatan nga wa man mapadayon.

    Ang akong flow of thoughts morag napandol man ug sa akong pagkadagma dili na nako ma-remember kung unsa ang akong gustong isuwat based sa maong takna.

    Gibaliklantaw nako ug naa koy idea unsaon pagpadayon pero dili giod nako makita ang pictures nga akong gustong ipapilit sa maong panid.

    So nia diay ang akong nasugdan nga gisulat, gipablish nako for this occassion.

    ako na lang unya ng i-update incase mobalik ang pagkunsad sa mga bulawanong panghuna-huna.

    Salamat sa share igsoon.

  2. “…because growth happens in silence, in our sleeping hours, much like the wordless rising of the sun on the east.”

    This resonates with me, Dfish. And I’m glad you’ve put them all in one post. Makes for easier reading. “,)

  3. one thing i learned about blogosphere……is its capacity to be an oasis of ideas, longings, dreams, varied expressions of human desire to communicate to the others… fact, it is in this sphere of virtual realm that I was able likewise to feel the essence and being of the SACRED….hidden in the many twists and turns of every story i read….and at the end of the day…in gratefulness i utter a prayer to God for his morsels of wisdom and love…..felt and shared, even on this oblivious and virtua world….
    thank you for touching my life….

  4. nice.. πŸ˜€ talaga namang there’s more to blogging than writing, reading and being read..

  6. Kapatid, congrats on your anniversary…

    Your blog is one of those that can stimulate my nearly stagnant mind to once again churn and to oild those rusty joints… πŸ˜€

    And your posts are always simple yet profound, grandiose but inviting, advocating silence yet always carries a big voice…
