There are 3 pitfalls where most men fall: Power, Money, and Women.

The same goes for countries, except for women.

Thomas Jefferson and the Louisiana Purchase

Thomas Jefferson and the Louisiana Purchase

In 1803, Thomas Jefferson nearly doubled the size of the nation with the Louisiana purchase. He didn’t go to Paris with an army, he went with a checkbook. For $15 million, the results were very effective.

There Never Will Be Anyone Like You

There Never Will Be Anyone Like You

Fulfilling your Purpose for Worship

Fulfilling your Purpose for Worship

There never has been and never will be anyone like you. That isn’t a testament to you. It is a testament to the God who created you! You are unlike anyone who has ever lived! But that uniqueness isn’t a virtue. It is a responsibility.

The Awesome Power of Willingness

The Awesome Power of Willingness!

Choice is what most people on earth have. You may not be able to choose your parents, siblings and current state in life, but most of the things you face – you could make a choice!

Personal Devotion to Change

Personal Devotion to Change

The struggle comes when we feel we are helpless in trying to change things that in reality are beyond our power. We feel stuck and in no-progress zone. As fear and terror grips us we go through the same cylcle until grace, a beautiful moment leads us to a powerfule discovery about change.

Most people are uncomfortable with change. In fact majority of people resist change and while change is inevitable. We must face it every day of out life. As we journey, we see that the more we struggle with things we cannot change, we get more stuck, but at the same time, if we willingly accept things we cannot change, we find forgiveness for ourselves and a new ticket to life.

Why are so many joining FLEX, ALC and LEAP?


Archian - Life, Bacolod, Architecture, Finances & Dubai
There have been many programs that I have experienced before, some of them are very helpful and some just encouraging. What makes OCCI any different?

I believe it is the way that the community handles life as a whole. What I like is the atmosphere of acceptance and growth that allows you to reflect on your life. At the same time it is the level of honesty and caring bluntness of giving you the truth. Ultimately with your individual style they figure a way and show you how your life works.

OCCI FLEX LEAP?
First of all, how did I get to hear about this program/OCCI?

My story.
I was a leader in one of the churches here in the Visayas. And like those many divine appointments, I happen to lunch an older gentleman from my bible study group. What started as a dinner became friendship. Soon we were discussing life. Now, at that point I was feeling confused and unhappy in my relationships. I knew I needed change. As I asked him for advice, he listened. And lovingly, he was just there. He even helped me in my goals of meeting new ladies in the party district of the city. I was that desperate to change this part of my life. After many times of failing miserably, he told me, “Ian I know a program that can really help you.” That’s when he shared about OCCI.

OCCI Center for Learning
“A world that Works with No One Left Out”

OCCI stands for Organizational Change Consultants International Inc. It is a leading change consultancy specializing in paradigm shift interventions. The goal of OCCI is to “transform organizations and communities by transforming individuals.”

After my visit to their main office at Emerald Building in Ortigas, I didn’t find the info I was looking for. What I knew is that I didn’t want to hear positive thinking and encouraging seminars that make you feel good but let you come back unarmed to the same life challenges.

If you let them, they take you by the hand, stoop down to listen to know where you are and guide you lovingly to know where you want to go. And that’s not all.

*Please ask us. We want to help you.

Training your Faith – Learning to Fly


Archian - Life, Bacolod, Architecture, Finances & Dubai

Training your Faith – Learning to Fly

“Don’t be troubled. Believe in God, and believe in me. 3b Then I will bring you into my presence so that you will be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14.

Looking through eyes of Faith

Looking through eyes of Faith

When I was in college God showed me a vision how faith works. When your heart is full, it is easy to be in the character of God. To speak and the things you ask easily manifest. Just as it were in creation God spoke “light” and there was light. There is no doubt who is the source and there is no feeling bad when it doesn’t manifest. You are satisfied and content. As a baby spirit christian, like the X Men- with constant practice you can learn how to stretch your faith. With practice you can make it grow.

Training for your Spiritual Gifts and Faith – sword of truth

 

Training your faith to receive the Promise

Training your faith to receive the Promise

That is the power of faith.

Imagine a huge ship that is you and a great ocean where it moves along. If you steer your ship to anywhere but shallow waters, your faith is operational. But there are locations where it is unusually powerful. This are situations where you have grown your faith to move mountains. When you cultivate habits that keep you faith in deep waters (greater trust in God) you find that you will be fine. But whenever your faith level is shallow, you experience conflict: emotionally, spiritually and physically. Have you found yourself easily becoming pessimistic, complaining and doubtful. The problem is not that you are experiencing them, but that you have allowed yourself to drive into shallow waters.

Faith is the Water that carries your Soul

Conflict is your Faith not enough to Float your spirit

Conflict is your Faith not enough to Float your spirit

Same way with flight. You need to keep enough wind and speed to fly. If you lack any of those, you scratch yourself with sores and bruises. How full is your faith? Are you filling it with enough or are you overflowing?

But faith is not neutral. Faith has a target, an object of faith. it can be used with God as a source or used in humanism with yourself as the source. It can work both ways. With positive thinking, it will lead you to a self centered philosophy. Whether we accredit the results to God, it doesn’t change the sovereignty and all-powerfulness of God. Your choice: honor God with your faith and soul or live for yourself (whether doing service or help for others) Remember that the blessing of God flows through your life when you honor God.

Standing Firm in your Faith

Standing Firm in your Faith

Who is the Lord of your life, Jesus, No-one or yourself? If no-one it is still yourself. Now, when you experience conflict and bumps, isn’t it about time that you moved your faith to deeper waters?

Supreme Court Decision on Gay Marriage, A Christian Perspective

The USA Decision on Gay Marriage, a Christian Perspective

Attending a Workshop in the last weekend, I came to face the emotional side of me. I would have been better but I am bothered that some people that are leading and sharing are guys who prefer guys. There is a concern that there maybe a transference of spirit but I am glad that instead of paranoia, I chose to understand. While spirit transfer is real, Jesus chose to be open and related with everyone.

Being a person who looks intelligent and speaks thoughtfully. A lot of people has asked if I am indeed gay. And this comes from the perception that I am not your typical macho in a Filipino judging society. Add to this the homophobia in the culture and the radical conservative judgement of the Christian and Catholic History of our nation. The key spirit in homosexuality is rejection. It is the exalted spirit who sits high enough it is hard to take down. I hate it when people doubt me but I have come to be secure in the Grace has given me. But coming from a place of understanding, I don’t have to prove that I am not.
