Move On!

"May iba na siya!" "Ay ang pangit naman nung pinagpalit niya sakin. Mas gwapo / maganda naman ako dun." "Kumusta na kaya siya?" Pabalik balik sa profile ng taong dapat ng kalimutan, iwanan. "Ayoko munang magmahal" "Ayoko nang masaktan" "Walang forever" "Ang ampalaya kinakain hindi inaasal" etc etc etc. Mga katagang malimit mabasa sa fb profiles ng ating mga kakilalang may pinagdadaanan, nasawi sa pag-ibig o mga kaibigan na mukhang naisahan ng tadhana. Sa lahat na lng ng bagay nagrereact. Kahit hindi naman para sa kanya magrereact. Sabagay sabi sa akin ng isang kabataan "kasi naman pads paminsan yung post mo o post ng iba kahit alam kong hindi para sa akin, aray...masakit...feeling ko ako yung tinamaan...assuming lang ang peg kung baga." Hugot dito, hugot doon. Kahit hindi naman hugot ang post ng kaibigan sasabihin "anu na naman bang hugot yan." Di ba pwedeng nabasa lang at nagustuhan ang lines? Hugot agad. MOVE ON!

Madali nga naman talagang sabihin na "MAG MOVE ON" pero mahirap gawin. Nararanasan natin ito sa iba't ibang aspeto at iba't ibang pagkakataon. Hindi lang naman kasi sa pag-ibig ang PAG MOVE ON. Sabagay, kahit anu pa man, ang dahilan naman talaga bakit di tayo MAKAPAG MOVE ON ay dahil NAPAMAHAL NA sa atin ang anu pa man yan: dating trabaho, nawalang magulang o kapatid o relative, cellphone na napakamahal tas nahulog o nasira dahil sa iyong katangahan, pera na nawala, opportunity na naglaho, kaso sa korte na natalo, bespren na bigla na lang nagbago dahil na inlove pala sayo tapos nagkahiwalay kayo, wrong choices of words na nagdulot ng "merece" effect sa pagkakaibigan nyo, etc etc. Nag karoon kasi ng "ATTACHMENT" dahil sa either MAHAL MO PA, MINAHAL MO, NAPAMAHAL NA SAYO, o kaya naman ay dahil NAGMAHALAN KAYO.


Ngayong ika limang Lingo ng Kuwaresma, may tatlong espisodes ng MOVING ON ang ating matutunghayan. Tingnan natin kung anung mapupulot natin para sa ating pamumuhay bilang Kristiano sa ngayon. Ang kwento kasi ng pag-iibigan ng Dios at ng tao ay parang teleserye at maraming MOVING ON na naganap, nagaganap, at magaganap pa. At gaya ng mga napapanood ng mga ordinaryo at grounded na tao, ang teleserye ng relasyon natin sa Dios ay may halong fantasy paminsan minsan, pinapakita ang ideal pero in reality hindi nangyayari ang lahat sa totoong buhay.

Sa unang pagbasa sinasabi ng Dios na MAG MOVE ON na. Yes, masakit at mahirap kalimutan yung buhay sa Ehipto na bagama't alila sila doon pero nakakakain ng maayos at may tubig hindi gaya ng paglalakbay sa disierto na halos mamatay sila sa uhaw at gutom at init ng araw. May katigasan din naman kasi ng ulo kaya nga andami ding nawalang opportunity sa kanila at ang daming ding sumuko. Sinasabi ni Bosing "Remember not the events of the past, the things of long ago consider not; see, I am doing something new! ... I make a way" "Di nyo ba nakikita yan?". God is offering them new life, new road, new relationship, another chance to live. Something new will come nga naman talaga kasi after something bad happens to us. Sadyang bulag lang talaga siguro tayo paminsan dahil sa sakit na naramdaman ng pagkawala, ng paghihiwalay sa nakagisnan. Ika nga ni Alexander Graham Bell "When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us." Nakatitig tayo sa pintuan na nakasara na parang tanga. Iniimbitahan tayo ngayong lingo na kalimutan na ang nakaraan and to MOVE ON. And start focusing on the OPEN DOOR.

Sa ikalawang pagbasa naman ikinukwento ni San Pablo na malaking kawalan ang lahat ng anuman meron siya dati "For his sake I have accepted the loss of all things and I consider them so much rubbish" pero ginawa niyang MAGMOVE ON so that he "may gain Christ and be found in him." Alam natin kung sino si Saul bago siya naging Pablo. But he never stuck on being the same person as before. He MOVED ON to do what is right and forget what is wrong. He did forget what lies behind and STRAINED FORWARD to what lies ahead. He continued to pursuit toward the goal, the prize of God’s upward calling, in Christ Jesus. Iniimbitahan din tayong gayahin si Pablo. And this is not only applicable sa mga bigo sa pag-ibig, this is also applicable para sa atin lahat kung tayo man ay NAPALIKO, NAPATIGIL SA DAPAT NA BUHAY NATIN BILANG KRISTIYANO. Hindi pa naman huli ang lahat. Pwede pa tayong magsimula ngayong araw na ito na MAG MOVE ON NA MULI SA BUHAY NA PATUNGO SA KANYA.

Ang ating Ebanghelyo ngayon ay nag-aanyaya sa dalawang aksyon na kailangan nating gawin, dalawang imbitasyon, dalawang paalala sa bawat isa sa atin. Ayon sa salaysay the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle. At ang parusa sa salang ito ay pagbabatuhin hangang sa mamatay. Subalit si Jesus ay umupo at nagsulat ng kung anu sa lupa. Seemingly parang "pagkukunsiti" ang kanyang ginagawa by not saying na go and stone her to death. But hold your judgements first. Nang kinulit sya he straightened up and said to them, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her. Again he bent down and wrote on the ground." SILENCE... SILENCE ang nangyari but it was not to condone o pagkunsinti sa mali na ginawa. The silence was there for the accusers to REFLECT before JUDGING. Only when we are SILENT that we can REFLECT well and MAKE CORRECT JUDGEMENTS BETTER. And SILENCE is a requirement for MOVING ON. Moving on from being judgemental, moving on from condemning rather than loving, moving on from speaking a lot that destroys relationships rather than heal. LOVE IS BEST SPOKEN IN SILENCE THAN WORDS. MERCY IS BEST SHOWN IN SILENCE THAN OUTSPOKEN. So ang unang paanyaya sa atin today is to be SILENT for sometime so that we can continue to MOVE ON in our life, to move on from our attitudes towards others, from being judgemental, and to MOVE FORWARD and become a new person so that on the day na we will celebrate the feast of Christ's Resurrection, we can feel that WE TOO HAVE RESURRECTED. We are invited to be MERCIFUL like the Father, MERCIFUL like Christ, and NOT TO JUDGE. JUDGEMENT KILLS. ONLY GRACE (MERCY) MAKES ONE ALIVE.

When everyone left, we know the rest of the story. Jesus said to her “NEITHER DO I CONDEMN YOU. GO, AND FROM NOW ON DO NOT SIN ANYMORE.” He was telling her to MOVE ON! With a non judgemental word, one feels LOVED, one regains his /her dignity, one regains his /her self. WITH A NON JUDGEMENTAL WORD, one PUSHES THE OTHER TO MOVE ON, TO START ALL OVER AGAIN, TO PICK UP THE BROKEN PIECES AND APPRECIATE ALL OF ITS BROKEN PARTS. With a non judgemental word, one unconsciously teaches him / her TO BE ANOTHER LOVING PERSON. The second invitation therefore is for us to GO, and MOVE AWAY FROM SIN. We are invited to stop from breaking our relationship with God, to stop from making bad relationships with others and most of all to stop from loving ourselves too much that leads us to selfishness and pride.We are invited to change our ways. Hindi porque hindi ka kinondina of your sin you continue doing it. No. When we are given a chance, WHEN WE ARE LOVED DESPITE OUR FAILURES WE ARE TO KNOW THAT WE HAVE TO MOVE ON... AND START LOVING AGAIN. We are invited to SIN NO MORE. We are asked to TAKE AWAY ALL OUR ATTACHMENTS TO SIN. We are invited to UNLOVE what is not true love, what is just selfih love. We are invited to be free from what hinders us to turly love God and our neighbors. MAHIRAP gawing kalimutan ang nakasanayan lalu na kapag nagbibigay sa atin ng self satisfaction ang mga ito. Mahirap gawing kalimutan ang mga bagay na napamahal na sa iyo lalu na kung it makes you feel secure and loved kahit panandalian lang. Napamahal na kasi sayo ang dati mong ikaw. MAHIRAP PERO KAILANGAN KUNG GUSTO TALAGA MAGBAGONG BUHAY.

This 5th Sunday of Lent, we are invited to MOVE ON and TO LOVE AGAIN FROM THE START. (Dibale na ulit masaktan, sanay ka naman na siguro niyan) :)
