Debugging our life, truly, is a gift. It is a way of “getting life.”

The manner we are living Personal Life has no difference to the manner we are using our Personal Computer. Life starts when we were switched on and stops when we are off. What matter most is on the process of living our Personal Life. We are the Processor, the central processing unit. No other else.

Yes, when we were born, we have life. But, as days go on, we let our life out of us. There are days that the world forcing itself to us and keep life nothing more than just fulfilling jobs, assignments and other worries, of what others expect of us and often what others want for us(nb). We live in sleep mode; just there as if we living in the dark, afraid of coming out to light, or give light; or in stand by mode, just be there as if we are not existing. We just live looking at our screen savers. This is what I call Half-Life. We reserve of getting back our life later; when all worries are fulfilled. We are busy with the business of living. Ironically, it downgrades our capacity to enjoy life.

Yes, my friends, we must and let us stop looking at the progress bar of living. Let us stop, pause, scrolls our life lanes, page up and page down our memories. Let us debug all our coded-fragmented life (or file?). I call this as System Check! This is DEBUGGING ONE’S LIFE. Debugging or de-fragmenting life is looking back at our core, a single core not dual core, at the bytes or bits of our memory. Life has no System Restore. Life could not be saved to a flash drive and have a back up. It could not be reset when it hangs. We must build, run and execute our own. We do not need gigabytes of memories or mega pixels to see and learn living and getting back our life. There are so many pointers around. We just look at the libraries of our friends and relatives. They could serve as our references. Let us go beyond our wallpapers. Look out through the windows of living, look at the macro aspect of life and not only the micro and go for the hard facts not only the soft one. Life is an open source program.

Yes, fellows, life is just there in its simplicity. No more if, else if or end if. If we complicate life, brothers and sisters, it Counter Strikes. There is no need to search further. The simple and ordinary is the portal of living. There is no button on it. We just need to wake up to it and it becomes special. We just go back to the VISUAL, to the BASIC. Just OPEN THE CODE.


NB: I acknowledge some words and ideas of Mr. Jim Paredes. I was inspired to write these thoughts after reading his article in Philippine Star Newspaper.

    Got ya, loud and clear. I hope we can easily do that, with imperialisms around us, in the Philippines as elsewhere. On second thought, you are darn right. C’est le vie, c’est la vie, vero!
