My Kind of Prayer

“God give us all we need so that we can give those in need.” Deut. 15:7-11.
Here is my kind of prayer: “God, never mind giving to me. Just give to them. After all, yours is the power, the kingdom, and the glory. Lord, I have nothing and nothing is more than enough for me! Poch Suzara

Cycle of Life

A man gives love in order to get sex. A woman gives sex in order to get love. In either case, the result is a child born and raised and taught to believe not in the biological union between a male sperm and a female egg, but only to believe what the religious morons have been teaching for centuries - that God made man in his own image and likeness. Poch Suzara

Right or Wrong

Perhaps, no one is right or wrong. Each is simply on a different level of consciousness. Unfortunately, most people have not been educated enough to expand or to increase their level of consciousness. They have only been indoctrinated to carry on in life by being thoughtless, if not mindless. Poch Suzara


As fear become rampant people turn to God. Unfortunately, there is an increasing sense even among the religious morons themselves that the word GOD now rings with a hollow emptiness. At any rate, it is good to know that most Christians are beginning to wake up to the fact that Christianity came into being first and foremost as a death-conquering religion. Sadly, however, achieved with sacred lies and other biblical promises. Such that death is not the end of life, but the beginning of a new chapter in life.

Now modern physicists have scientifically dissolved into nothing the materiality of matter. A body, in our case the human body is, in the ultimate analysis, nothing but a system of bundled energy – a thing that can never be created or destroyed. Poch Suzara

Most Men

Most men love to play the game of cards, balls, clubs, rackets, boards, suits, sticks, wheels, rods, bows and arrows and guns.

With me, the mental freak that I am, rightly or wrongly, I only love to play with ideas. Ideas, no doubt, have tremendously encouraged me to examine my own life as I found it worth living.

The love of playing with ideas seemed more glorious, incomparably, than the lust of the ways of the flesh and the dross of the world. For my part, I hardly wanted millions. I only wanted answers to my questions! “Seek ye first the good things of the mind,” Bacon admonishes us, “and the rest will either be supplied or its loss will not be felt.” For me, mental health is the best kind of wealth.

It is Understandable

It is understandable why Jesus never lived in a happy home and never enjoyed love and affection from either of his parents during his upbringing. After all, his father never married his mother.

Jesus said, and I could hardly blame him: “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Poch Suzara

What's Evil about our Government

What’s evil about our government? The high officials! They seek nothing except wealth, power, and glory for themselves. When they do, however, achieve “success in life,” they only continue to be selfish, greedy, stupid, insecure and socially insane.

What our country needs now is not only love and the greater knowledge about the nature of love, in all its complexity, especially what it really means to love a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Poch Suzara

More On Death

Here’s Bertrand Russell – my intellectual father. Russell wrote about his own death. He inspired in me fearlessly, if not with equanimity, to face my own death one day: “I believe when I die I shall rot, and nothing of my ego will survive. I am not young, and I love life. But I should scorn to shiver with terror at the thought of annihilation. Happiness is nonetheless true happiness because it must come to an end, nor thought and love lose their value because they are not everlasting.” Poch Suzara


I do not know what’s the fuss about death. That it is sudden, extended, lengthened, elongated, stretched, or otherwise surprising. But the day we are born is the day we begin dying. In terms of a thousand years, human life is but a day long. In terms of a hundred thousand years, human life is but an hour long. In terms of a million years long, human life is but a minute long. In terms of a hundred million years, human life is split second, flash in the pan, wink of an eye - long. Will Durant, one of my most admired thinker in the intellectual community, wrote about it with courage and dignity: “And yet, what if it is for life’s sake that we must die? In truth, we are not individuals; and it is because we think ourselves such that death seems unforgivable. We are temporary organs of the race, cells in the body of life; we die and drop away that life may remain young and strong. If we were to live forever, growth would be stifled and youth would find no room on the earth. Death, like style, is the removal of rubbish, the excision of the superfluous.” Poch Suzara

Change Our Society

We may not be able to change our society. We can, however, change the society of a child by preventing its existence. Not by abortion, but simply by prevention. Especially if such a child were going to be born unloved, unwanted, and unneeded by parents who neither have the gumption nor the comprehension to realize that to bring forth children into this world is not a matter of divinity. It is more about replenishing the earth with humans with rights to human dignity. Poch Suzara

College-Educated Women

It is incredible how college-educated women of this country are much more at home with the Communion of saints and sinners than they are conversant with the Communion of thinkers and philosophers. And yet, they feel no need of more lecture or exposure to new knowledge - the rare opportunity to interact with it freely as a matter for intellectual growth and maturity? Poch Suzara


You may own the titles to kingdoms of the world. But unless you discover the simple pleasures of learning and the simple joys of understanding through the habit of critical reading and thinking you will only continue to be the mediocre victim of poverty, especially the worse kind: the poverty of the mind. Poch Suzara

Life and Death

How can we know of death if we do not know of life? Now, for the sake of argument, let us assume there is life after death. Where in the universe could such a life be found? Consider our cosmic insignificance: Our entire world is only one planet circling one star in a galaxy that contains about 400 billions planets and stars and is itself only one of the several hundred billion galaxies. After death, how exactly or by what means of locomotion do we travel to any of those worlds to start enjoying eternal salvation; or, for that matter, to be start suffering with eternal damnation?

In the meantime, the bible admits: “The living know that they shall die, but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.” Poch Suzara

Conversation With God

God: “I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is my greatest gift to you.” . . . Poch: “Oh God, that’s wonderful. But why did you create Satan also gifted with a free will? Satan even possessed the power to transform himself into a Talking Serpent – more subtil than any beast of the field in your biblical paradise!” Poch Suzara

Impossible With Men

Things impossible with men are possible with God. – Luke 18:27. So, how come it was never impossible with men to have created a God in their own image and likeness? In fact, I never found it impossible to have created for myself not a God, but a Goddess. Poch Suzara


Harvard University already produced more than 48 Nobel Laureates. These are men whose reputation for commitment to humane values and to the pursuit of the truth may be challenged. Nevertheless, Nobel Prize Winners have made authentic contribution to science and to human civilization.
Nobel prizes won by the faculty members of University of San Thomas? None yet. To think UST is older than Harvard by some 50 years. UST, however, has already produced thousands of priests and nuns who, during these past centuries are still preaching to Filipinos to love not this world, neither the things that are in this world! Poch Suzara

Christ's Love

Christ’s love creates unity out of diversity. Phil Star 9/29/2007.
I ask: where is Christ’s love for the unity among Filipinos and for the unity of the Philippine government? To think that no other Asian people, except the Filipinos have always rendered deep faith in Christ since Christianity conquered the Philippines some 500 years ago! Poch Suzara
