Unang gabi ng Simbang Gabi

I cant remember the last time that I went to the 4:30AM simbang gabi mass. Today with nostalgia about my childhood memories of the ritual...I went on my own. A sense of longing for inner peace and a renewed heart urged me to fill in that emptiness. A compelling sense emptiness seems more apparent during the advent season. I guess this is why a search for meaning is more palpable. A retreat from the usual routine. I guess I know in my heart that the search for the place to reflect is not just a place where you can see the great expanse of the sea and the sky nor in a quiet place. I've come to realize that the search is more inward and the sense of place is in your heart. Even in the loud noise of your surroundings you may be able to find your own peace and Self realization. Yesterday almost unknowingly my eyes poured out. A sense of knowing. Things are the same but they are not the same. Something has changed. Only you can sense the shift. And a yearning for the Universe to bless your heart.
