About

Hey there, thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Donna but my nickname as a child was Boniknik. I was born and raised in the Philippines but currently live in Chicago.

I have a great deal of love for Philosophy and often ponder about our existence and the universe. I have read many books but Kahlil Gibran’s writings are the ones that strikes me the most. I also have a great deal of interest in History, Science, Psychology, Neuroscience and how the brain works.

I’m an activist and I love supporting social causes. I don’t belong to any religion though I will not call my self an atheist. I’m an Agnostic but not because I’m undecided about believing a God or Gods. I’m an Agnostic because I have done a whole lot of thinking and research about religion and found that despite all the knowledge I have accumulated and even all the combined knowledge of mankind — We still know nothing. Thus my position is of one that humbly accepts that I do not know enough to believe or not believe. I do believe that there is more to this life than what our primitive brain can comprehend.

Though I am an agnostic, I strongly agree in the many teachings of Jesus Christ (whether he existed or just purely a fictional character), teachings of Buddha and the tenets of Jainism; thus I can also be considered a Christian, Buddhist and Jainist.

“Many a doctrine is like a window pane. We see truth through it but it divides us from truth.” – Kahlil Gibran

I consider myself a modern woman but will not consider myself a feminist. I am a humanist in the sense that I am an advocate for all humans regardless of gender, sexuality, race and background.

I dream of a society that follows a Resource-based Economic System; I am strongly against the Monetary System.

I have many flaws in my character but I try and aspire to master a way of life and thinking as described in the book called The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who aspire something more meaningful than what this worldly life has to offer.
