“Dear My Most Beloved, Who was Never Meant to be Mine” by Lumina Han
“Dear My Most Beloved, Who was Never Meant to be Mine” by Lumina Han If I never fell in love with you, I would never have understood how destructive, violent, fierce, powerful, selfish, passionate and dangerous love could really be. You made me realize that I could never genuinely love anyone else besides myself. I could never truly give my everything to others, because I expected to receive more than to give. I craved to possess your soul, body and mind more than to embrace you with an untainted heart. And because you became the drive of my downfall, I grasped the truth that I had to let you go. You taught me that falling in love could become the hardest experience that one could ever handle. Meeting you, Seeing you and falling in love with you has been the greatest thrill. Yet, you became the one beam of light that blinded the pitch darkness that I tried to hide from the world. You taught me that I was incapable of devotionally loving you. To sincerely wish for your happiness without me as a part of your future, was an impossibility. I wanted to take ownership of you than for you to be yourself. Because what I really am, beneath my smiles, is that my world revolves solely on my needs and desires. To burn with such a raging fire in my heart for you has driven me into both insanity and clarity. Insanity, because you have forsaken my logic and judgement in those moments when you snatched away the center of my universe. Clarity, because you have revealed the true dark monster that I beheld deep down inside my soul. You have engulfed me in both hell and heaven, and with you I have been on the most thrilling joy of flying high in the sky. Yet because you became my drug, I fell deep down to the endless depths of the lonely, cold ocean, where I could feel nothing but suffocation and heartache. Through both these highest and lowest moments, I have learnt that it was because you never felt the same way as I did for you, that you changed my life forever. I could never be the same again, not because this love was unrequited, but because through loving you, I learnt that the turmoil of emotions I felt for you, weren`t true love at all. I disguised physical chemistry, infatuation, attraction and lust all in the name of ‘love’. Although no one has ever made me feel this much passion and rage as you have, what I felt for you wasn`t absolute love, but rather my own selfish desires and greed projected on to you. Since you walked into my life, you have shed light on how messed up my view of the world really was. Slowly, through the heart wrenching scars that I bleed from falling too deeply for you, I have apprehended things I could never have learnt had you loved me back. It was because we were never meant to be, that I could change. And because our fates were never meant to collide with each other, my paths have diverged away from you and towards you. While I was running away from you, to escape from your consumating presence, I have told myself a million times over to let go of what was never mine to begin with. When I walked closer to you, God taught me that the intense heat I felt for you would burn both of us alive. Because passion that is too rash and too sudden thinks nothing else but using the other to gratify and satisfy one`s own deep lack and emptiness. You were never born to fill up my hole, my scars and my iniquities. You are born to be you, to be the one whom God designed and planned, to be free and liberal from my obsessive presence. You deserve to love someone who loves you the right way, the sincere, faithful and innocent way, as I never did, as I never could have. You loved her instead of me, because my love for you was too lethal and poisonous for us both. Since the day I met you, our story has taken me on a toxic, venomous, annihilative and catastrophic ride towards an inevitable breakdown. You became my destruction, my road to torn deterioration and collapse. I could no longer envision a happy fairy tale ending between us, because the deadly outburst of covet and affection I felt for you consumed my entire being into a fever of stormy delirium. I was mad, crazy about you, and to me, you were all that I ever wanted, all that ever mattered... But because you were much stronger than I ever was, you kept your feet on the ground, and we never crashed into each other with the same disastrous urge and affection. You were my Romeo, but had I also been your Juliet, our story would have ended us in the same tragedy, an end that would have destroyed us both. I was never the one whom you could, would or should ever love. To mistake even for a second that we were one was my greatest delusion, my wildest fantasy and my most absurd illusion that I ever dreamt. Although we can never be together, our story still ends with hope. Because loving you was God`s greatest lesson, gift and inspiration in my life. And for that I am grateful that God brought us together for this period in our youth. Thank you for being the way you were. Because in everything that you were to me, you have been perfect. You made me a better person, without changing me into anyone other than my true self. I became what God made to become, because God let me meet you, fall for you, and grow closer to him through loving you. And because you have taught me what Christ`s love should be, you will forever remain a special treasure and secret deep in my heart, as my most beloved who was never meant to be mine. Even if our destinies never cross paths in the future, no one will ever replace what you were to me, and what you have made me become. And now, at the ending page of our story, I think I can finally love you the way you always deserved to be loved. I will love you even when you love someone else. I will love you even if you never return my love back to me. Perhaps in the future, I will fall in love again, with someone else besides you. And because of the things you have taught me about God and true love, I will love them more sincerely than I ever loved you. My passion for you will gradually wane and be replaced by a new love. But please know that I would never have been able to give them the love that they deserve, had I never loved you first. You were my first one true love, that changed everything for me. I love you in all your entirety, with or without me as a part of your life. Thank you, for being the beginning sentence, the first chapter and the opening of my love story.
What Lies Behind Us and What Lies Before Us Are Tiny Matters
There’s a legend that when God created all the animals, He created the bird. The bird looked around and he saw all these mighty, ferocious animals and he turned to God and said, “God, it’s not fair. I’m this little tiny creature and you created all these wild, huge powerful beasts. Just look at how little I am. How will I ever survive? They’re stronger, faster and they’ll devour me!” So God fashioned a pair of wings and threw them down which landed on the back of the bird. Sarcastically, the bird said, “Thanks! Now I have to carry these around for the rest of my life. These are going to slow me down even more!” God said, “No, silly bird. If you learn how to use those wings, you’ll be able to soar above all the wild, huge, and powerful beasts and you’ll always be safe. What makes us great? The greatness of the bird is that it can fly above all other creatures. Yet we are neither the strongest nor the fastest of all the creatures. What makes us great is our spirit—our wings. As long as we learn how to tap into our wings, we have an advantage over everything else in the world. If we see our human spirit as a burden, something that we carry around as a weight, then we become weaker than everything else. The only way we can rise above the challenges and hardships of life is when we learn how to use our wings and take flight. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. - Henry S. Haskins

“I Lost Fear of Losing What I Never Wanted to Lose Forever” by Lumina H. Once upon a time, in my worst nightmare I screamed in the middle of the night “Don’t Leave Me!” Fear of being abandoned Fear of being rejected Fear of being replaced Horror strikes like lightning Blitz, Blitz, Blitz Every thunder of anxiety electrocuted me I’ve been punched, kicked and screamed at I know all too well how it feels to be treated like dirt I’ve been to hell and back, both inside and outside my head. So what I feared most in this world Was you, of you turning your back on me Never to return, ever. Fear brought anxiety, pain, worry, stress, anger, fury, insomnia and finally tears Buckets, trucks, pools of tears Gradually my tears filled up a swimming pool And in my swimming pool of tears I drowned myself And I needed a CPR But no one came… The water was still trapped in my lungs And I forgot how to breath, how to live I was dying I had seconds to live Could I live again? Could anyone give me new life? Could anyone revive me? Somebody… Anybody… Please help me… In my desperate need, I pleaded, prayed and hoped And then, right then Someone did come to my rescue But He wasn’t you He was unexpected While you left me drowning He came with a thousand letters of love and care I didn’t know Him He was a stranger to me But to him, I was no stranger He had been waiting for me all along He watched me dive into the ocean of tears He watched me as I sunk deeper into the sea of sorrow He always wanted to help me, to save me He never wanted me to drown myself, never He wanted me to live To live without Fear. To live without Fear of abandonment To live without Fear of rejection To live without Fear of replacement To live bravely, fearlessly, hopefully, gratefully To live honestly, courageously, earnestly, kindly To live with everything I had replaced with fear He breathed new air into my lungs Water came spluttering out of my throat My heart started beating again I could feel the blood rushing faster in my veins I’m alive! I’m alive! I’m alive! I’ve been Saved! Saved! Saved! My new savior will show me ways not to be afraid of losing you I’ve already lost you once And from now he will show me never to fear Losing you again and again Because in the far future Fast forward to many years later Here I am The future me said “I lost fear of losing what I never wanted to lose forever” “I lost fear of losing you, who I never wanted to lose, never” So today I wait, I hope, I run, I believe, I trust Towards that future of losing fear of losing you.
Laravel 8 Tutorial for Beginner: Create your First To-Do App
We will cover how to install Laravel and how to develop your first app in Laravel for beginners in this Laravel tutorial. You may now simply learn Laravel without having to watch any Laravel video series or tutorials. This laravel tutorial will teach all of the important ideas in simple language so that you may learn and comprehend laravel quickly. Introduction Laravel is an attractive, expressive, and versatile PHP framework that bills itself as "the PHP framework for web craftsmen" because of its emphasis on clean code and speed. Taylor Otwell designed a free and open source PHP framework based on the Model View Controller (MVC) architecture. Developing a web application from the ground up might be intimidating, especially if you are a novice. A simple web application has a variety of little and large elements, and building those pieces each time you build a web app can be tedious and repetitive, so there's no use in spinning the wheel. Laravel comes to your rescue at this point. The Laravel framework includes a number of PHP libraries and auxiliary functions that can help you focus on the more critical aspects of your project while also offering common methods and logic to speed up and simplify development. There is a learning curve at first, especially if you are a newcomer with no prior expertise with a web framework. But trust me when I say that once you get into it, you will not only love it, but you will get hooked to it. Laravel strives towards innovation in development. The term 'Web Artisan' is used to describe the creative element of the developer's personality. As a result, the application is more efficient, with less lines of code and well-designed code. I developed this laravel tutorial with a novice audience in mind to make it easy for you to understand. As a result, you will find it simple to follow this laravel tutorial. What should you know before diving into our Laravel tutorial? HTML/CSS (Of course!) Basic PHP knowledge is required. Intermediate PHP - Although this is somewhat optional, if you have the time, understand some intermediate concepts such as PHP OOP, abstraction, and so on. Perseverance – Basic understanding of the MVC Framework Even while Laravel is simple to learn, it will put your patience to the test at times. At the very least, I ran into some difficulties because I knew PHP but had no experience with frameworks. Even while I was studying the framework and successfully completing projects, I was perplexed by the MVC Framework's core underlying notions. I didn't give up, though. C'mon, web building is enjoyable! At the very least, Laravel made it fun. It's best to take your time and enjoy the learning process. Laravel Tutorial: Creating a Simple CRUD To-Do Application Practice is the most effective way to learn programming. Thus, with the aid of this Laravel tutorial, we will understand basic ideas of Laravel by creating a simple To-Do Laravel Web App that will do the following functions. The online app allows you to register and login. You may add things to your to-do list, as well as edit and delete them. Because your list is only available to you, it uses email id and password authentication. Exploring Directory Structure The Model-View-Controller architecture design pattern is used in Laravel applications. Models describe database entities and assist you in querying and returning data from the database. Views are the pages that will appear when the app is opened. The View Component is used to create the application's user interface. Controllers manage user requests, pulling data from models and passing it to Views. Controllers conduct business logic and incoming requests as an intermediate between Model and View Components. I hope that this Laravel tutorial helped you understand the fundamental concepts of Laravel and inspired you to learn more.
Jesus: Prophet of Peace and Love or Purveyor of Fear and Hate?
Multitudes of Christian commentators over the past two millennia have proclaimed the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth to be unsurpassed tenets of spiritual wisdom and unexcelled guidelines for living a morally responsible life.  Hundreds of millions of devout believers are absolutely convinced that they will conquer death and attain everlasting life because God sacrificed his son for their sins. They are also convinced that Jesus didn’t really die. He was restored to life and subsequently ascended to heaven to spend eternity with his father, and soon Jesus will return to Earth to judge the wicked and rapture righteous believers up to heaven with him. Countless books have been written extolling the allegedly commendable features of the “Christian worldview” and the “Christ-centered life,” but, by contrast, few authors have examined the unsavory side of Jesus’ personality and his less than-meritorious behavior and opinions. For this presentation, I’ve formulated, in a balanced fashion, two sets of ten principles based on Jesus’ pronouncements. Although his directives come from the canonical gospels (the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), additional documentation is abundant elsewhere in the New Testament epistles and letters. The twenty precepts are listed along with the supporting Bible verses from which they derive. The cited verses and passages appear in this separate article. This scriptural evidence will enable readers to answer for themselves the binary question that is the title of this article. NB: This article is not made assuming Jesus literally indeed existed, but an evaluation of the character of the Abrahamic religious texts.
