Friday night and revelations

It was a Friday night and Joshua invited me to go out and unwind. We went to Malate with another friend, Carlo. I seldom go out and go to places such as Malate but being someone of a friendly nature, I am not surprised to expect and see friends their.

Beside the table we were seated, outside this bar called “O”, I saw Didit, One of my very close friends in UP. Didit and I were dorm mates. He just arrived a few weeks back from UAE, Dubai, I suppose. He was a fashion designer there but was imprisoned for posting his design and promoting his company’s brand online. But he’s back and we’re both glad he’s safe. He is with his lifetime partner that night. I joked about how our circle of friends have “series of unfortunate events”. Then he asked what my unfortunate event. I told him I don’t see it as an unfortunate event, really. And then I told him I am two year old Poz. He was surprised to here my news but kept that “I-am-ok-you‘re-ok-it-doesn’t-matter-because-we’re-friends” smile in his face. Then we hugged and said good night.

I was reintroduced to Kana. He’s Joshua’s friend who work for the European Union (EU). EU is one of the entities represented in the Country Coordinating Mechanism of Global Fund to the Philippines. Global Fund funds the program fighting to eradicate Tuberculosis, Malaria and HIV. I first met Kana at a gathering where I was invited by a close friend also working in the same advocacy. Kana is a nice, smart guy with a beautiful smile. We talked about HIV/ AIDS issues in the Philippines, fundings and stuff about marriage. He stayed with us until we called it an evening.

Then after a while, I saw Yayo. Another good friend, a dorm mate and a classmate back in UP, again. He smile broadened when he saw me. We hugged asked how each other’s doing. I said I am working as full time advocate against HIV/ AIDS. He said that’s cool and told me that he got tested and was negative. I told him I got my self tested to… then he asked for my results. I said I tested positive. I knew he was shocked with my revelation but was very supportive. He hugged me again and commented that I look healthy. I responded saying I’ve always been healthy. And we laughed. We talked for a while about his plans and my plans. He then told me that he needed my help because he has a friend who was recently diagnosed to be positive. I said I am all willing to help. Then he introduced me to another friend.

Rendell is a nice guy. Based on the way he talk, the way he approached me, I got the impression that he’s more intelligent than an average guy. We chatted a while about how I am willing to help their newly diagnosed friend, what sort of set-up would be ideal on meeting his friend and the fact that Yayo is still single. Without censorship,, he told me that I have a yellow aura and that my numerology number is 5. I asked what’s that supposed to mean. He said he is not sure but that’s what he sees in me. He also said that he sees the color green, like a leaf. And he thinks it represents money. I joked and said that I hope what he’s saying is true as we need money to fund out upcoming projects in the advocacy. We chatted a little more and bid farewell.

I was curious about what Rendell told me so I searched the net for the meaning of auras and numerologies. I came to a website called: and this is what I found…

A yellow aura means joy, freedom, non-attachment, freeing or releasing vital forces. People who glow yellow are full of inner joy, very generous and not attached to anything. Yellow halo around the head: high spiritual development. A signature of a spiritual teacher. Do not accept spiritual teachings from anyone who does not have such a yellow halo. Buddha and Christ had yellow halos extending to their arms. Today it is rare on Earth to find a person with a halo larger than 1 inch. Yellow halo appears as a result of a highly active brow chakra (which can be seen glowing with violet by many people at my workshops). Highly spiritual people stimulate the brow chakra continuously for many years, because they always have intensive spiritual thoughts in their minds. When this chakra is observed when highly active, a yellow (Auric pair) halo appears around it, surrounding the entire head. Yellow thought indicates a moment of joy and contentment.

Then another website called defined some interesting facts about the characteristics of the numerology number 5. It says…

Number 5 is the most flexible of all numbers. You most likely have some of the following strengths and talents at your disposal if the number 5 appears in your numerology chart. You make friends easily, you are versatile and multi-talented, upbeat and inspirational and a good communicator and motivator. You have great verbal skills and you are very dynamic, persuasive, adaptable, versatile and curious, courageous, bright and quick-witted. You are an explorer and adventurer who want to experience all of life, you also like to perform in front of audiences and you like to do several things at the same time.

Some of the following weaknesses, which are associated with the number 5, could slow down or even prevent your progress. But don't worry; it's very unlikely that all of the listed characteristics are part of your personality. Most probably, only one or a few of them will belong to you. It is difficult for you to commit to one relationship and you have difficulties to finish projects. You lack discipline and order, you are impatient, restless, easily distracted and you can be very impulsive. You might also be susceptible to overindulgence in sensual pleasures. Discipline and focus are the keys to your success.

That night was a night filled with revelation and coincidental proof that there is a bigger plan for me. I don’t have any idea what it is, but I am hopeful that it’s for the best of everything.
