When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

SON: “Daddy, may I ask you a question?

DAD: “Yeah sure, what is it?

SON: “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?

DAD: “That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?

SON: “I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?

DAD: “If you must know, I make RM100 an hour.

SON: “Oh,” the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: “Daddy, may I please borrow R M50?

The father was furious, “If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that RM 50 and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.

Are you asleep, son?” He asked.

No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy.

I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier” said the man.

It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here’s the R M50 you asked for.

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. “Oh, thank you daddy!” He yelled.

Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

Why do you want more money if you already have some?” the father grumbled.

Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied.

Daddy, I have R M100 now, can I buy an hour of your time?

Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

It’s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without spending some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our heart.

Do remember to share that R M100 worth of your time with someone you love.

If we leave this world today, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days.

But the family and friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than onto our family.

A VIew On Aging

Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about aging that you think in fractions.

‘How old are you?’ ‘I’m four and a half!’ You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key!!

You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back.
You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.

‘How old are you?’ ‘I’m gonna be 16!’ You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . . . you BECOME 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.

But wait!!! You MAKE IT to 60. You didn’t think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE IT to 60.

You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30 ; you REACH bedtime and it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; ‘I Was JUST 92.’

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. ‘I’m 100 and a half!’

May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!

HOW TO STAY YOUNG

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them.’

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health : If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9 Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

AND CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING :

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

George Carlin’s Views on Aging

What’s The Price Of A Kiss?

I would love to kiss you.
The price of kissing is your life.
Now my loving is running toward my life shouting,
What a bargain, let’s buy it.

Awards

Awards

 

Thanks a million, Morgan.

 

This is an award bestowed by Morgan for me probably 3 weeks ago. I am not very good with posting my awards as they come. However, I’ve always immediately sent my gratitude and thanks to each one of my friends who gave them to me.

This next award is from Jang Bok Jae. He gave me a surprise just a few minutes ago saying that he has given me one. This time I’m making it a point to post it up almost as quickly as I can. Thanks…Jang Bok Jae!!

 

I know these awards mean a great deal. And they represent splendid friendship, generous effort of sharing, care for others, and most of all, a connection that has enormously value and support for me, personnally. A connection of Mind and Spirit.

 

These awards are absolutely priceless.

 

Thank you!!

 

Footnote – If you haven’t visited Morgan’s or Jang Bok Jae’s blogs, I recommend that you drop over at theirs now.

Natural Herbalism

 

Many of us today are very much into Alternative Medicine. Due to the much excessive use of antibiotics, our immune system has been compromised and chemically overdosed. Bacteria and viruses mutate rapidly as a result. Our human defend system against these bacteria and viruses are not longer effective. These medicines, at best, will give us instant temporary relief. Nothing beyond that. The reason simply enough to understand and rational. Such medicine addresses the symptoms and never the root causes.

 

I’m a staunch believer in natural herbalism. Herbs resolve the cause of our illnesses. By using herbs, we ensure that the root cause is taken care of, so that, a possibility of being immune or a non-reoccurrence is much higher.

 

Have you noticed when animals get sick, how they will immediately go to a grass patch or a field? They instinctively knew and are be able to sniff out herbs for the cure to get them back to well-being.

 

How often do we feel dehydrated after a full prescribed dosage of medicine? That sign is not just skin deep. It’s a deep-rooted sign that our body is signaling to us and reacting to such chemicals we unconsciously put into our body system.

 

Many a times, natural herbalism is the way to go.

 

There are many sources of herbs for different healing and cures amongst which include -

When you think of the IMPOSSIBLE…think of this. Get your spirit up and NOW, put into action what you thought was impossible. Nothing is impossible if you put you mind to it. It’s only your state of mind.

 

An interesting video on Meditation Practices.

Below is an article that I picked up from Maggie’s blog and I’ve requested her permission to post it here to share with everyone.

It’s about – Loving Yourself.

Relationships are how we relate to others. We have a relationship with everyone that we know and who is close to us. This is not reserved for our family or someone who we are involved with. Every interaction we have with another is the act of relating.

If we have a problem relating to others, this affects our ability to have supportive relationships. We have to ask ourselves if our relationships are supportive and if they are not, then ask ourselves why they are not. Everyone wants the perfect romance or marriage, but not everyone looks at the mechanics of how to have one. If we fail to have supportive relationships in our life, how can we have the perfect relationship?

 

Lets look at what is a supportive relationship. The word support is very important. It means that our interaction supports another. This means more than supporting another in their decisions or actions, rather through the act of supporting, we honour and validate who the other person is. In turn, this validates who we are. Both are supported, no one loses, no ego’s involved, and in so doing, we honour the relationship. This is what it means to have a supportive relationship. This is the desired goal. Now, how do we accomplish it?

 

There are several reasons why we may have problems relating to others. One primary reason is our behavioural patterns. These patterns are developed over a course of our lives. It starts when we are children, through to our adolescence, and by the time we are adults, we have established our behavioural patterns for our relationships. We can have both positive and negative behavioural patterns.

 

What causes negative behavioural patterns? If we look at a person’s life, we can readily see which is negative or positive behaviour. But we may not easily see the cause of the negative.

 

The cause usually resides in the past in which a trauma or an event occurred that effects how we behave in the future. If that event occurs again, or if something happens currently to cause us to experience that trauma again, that is when we respond to it. Situations can act as triggers, which may cause us to react to the person that is involved in the situation. This causes a negative behavioural pattern. Until we can identify the problem, we are powerless to do anything about it.

 

Whatever the situation was to trigger a reactionary response, the cause must be discovered in order to heal the original fracture. In Shamanism terms this is called a Soul Fracture. A fracture of the Self. Each self is part of the whole which comprises the soul. Soul Fractures occur for a variety of reasons and may or may not relate to this current lifetime. Traumas have occurred in past lifetimes that may or may not have been addressed. The Soul holds the body of these life experiences. Furthermore, the life process itself can be very painful for some. Past experiences that have dishonoured, or invalidated who we are, cause us to close ourselves off even more. These experiences build up over a matter of time and unless a clearing occurs, emotional or physical problems may develop.

 

If a problem has been identified, what can we do about it? One can try to clear it themselves, or one can go to a practioner who is adept at doing clearings. In order to clear, one must identify the original cause that created a behavioural pattern. Then, move through the experience of that situation, and experience the emotions that we have associated with it. Then, we must have closure or completion. This means completing it anyway that we are able. As long as, we feel that we have a sense of completion for the experience.

 

So, after we have identified the cause and received closure or completion, then we let it go. This does not mean to forgive or forget, that is not what it is to release. The act of releasing is our readiness to heal. Only after the experience has cleared can healing occur.

 

The healing process is a time when we must be very loving to ourselves. If we beat up ourselves about the experience that had caused us harm or our past reaction to it, then we cannot heal. In being loving to ourselves, we validate what we had experienced at that time and our emotions for it. Our emotions are always valid. So it’s important for us to do this self validation in order to heal.

 

Love is the energy that helps us to heal, whether we give this love to ourselves, or we receive it from another. When we look at having supportive, loving relationships in our life, why not start with ourselves? Because that is where love comes from. This is what transforms our relationships and our lives. We must love the self first. And we cannot do that until we have healed and become whole.

There are plenty more wonderful articles that Maggie has written. Check it out HERE and enjoy.

How many of us let each second goes by without being aware of the seconds ticking past?

How many of us needed approval from people around us when we embark something?

How many of us attuned to those around us before we decide to act or not act?

Why is it so that before we act on something, we owe our decisions to others around us?

Are we not capable of making decisions for just us alone?

Why do we have to be so attached to things and people?

Can we just let go of our attachments, feel free, feel liberated?

Is it so difficult to let go of all the negative energies we possess and make room for the positive one to enter our lives?

To make days count, isn’t feeling free the greatest and only reason why we live our lives?

Enjoy life, this is not a rehearsal.

Live each day in the present and make it beautiful.

Heal the Past…Live in the Present…dream for the Future.

We’ve always had strong desire in each one of us to transform; to make changes to our lives. Come the new year, we make resolutions and most of these we’ll find difficult to keep those promises to ourselves.

Why is that so?

Is it because we’re so preciously attached to our comfort zone that we never want to let go; to make room for transformation can take place?

Or is it just because we do things that matter to others and we don’t have space at all for ourselves?

If we keep our baggages, how can we created new space for transformations to occurred.

Morgan is only fine example of how she decided to to let go and Healed her past, to let the Process of Miracles to seep into her life. I admire her greatly for the journey she has taken. By doing so, she has embraced a newly found self. A Present to Live for. Now Dream for your Future, Morgan.

Here is an article I read in The Star today. It’s a short story about Ven Heng Sure. Here is a brief insight into an interview with him. Before we start, just a little about him.

Borned Christopher R. Clowey in 1949, in Teledo, Ohio, he took the name of Ven Heng Sure in 1976. He attended the University of California in Berkeley in the 60s and attained Masters in Oriental Languages. Later, he attained a PhD in Graduate Thelogical Union in Berkeley. He’s 58 now and has been in robes for 30 years.

Back in 1977, a young monk in his full robes of 7-piece sash and the Avatamsaka Sutra tied to his back, took 3 steps and then made a full prostration by the roadside. He got up and repeated the procedure – “san bu, yi bai” meaning “3 steps, 1 bow” – Throughout the day, every day, for 2 years and 9 months!!

That was the bowing pilgrimage undertaken by Venerable Heng Sure from May 1977 till the end of 1979. He covered some 1,280 km of the California Costal Highway from Pasadena to Utah. At the same time, he took a vow of silence for 6 year.

Rain or shine, snow or hail, this young man remained steadfast to his religious practice despite being viewed as weird by the American public at the time.

The following are some of his answers in a recent email interview.

“Why the vow of silence during the bowing pilgrimage?”

The bowing pilgrimage helped me to begin to see through the illusion of self-importance; the silence vow taught me that my inner wiring was crooked. I couldn’t tell the truth from a lie because my motive for speech was so often a wish to make others like me. If a joke or an exaggeration could get laugh then I would twist or embellish the truth without a care. When one person prevents one arrogant thought and one crooked word from entering the mainstream social interchange, then that’s a wholesome deed. Our minds touch each other; when my mind is free of anger and cynicism, I’ve benefited the world.

“After 30 years in robes, what is the most gratifying things you’ve gained?”

A growing awareness that my thoughts matter a great deal to the well-being of the planet and our larger human and non-human family. If i can refuse to get depressed or frightened by what people do, if I can resolutely bring my chaotic thoughts back to stillness, and wonder at the marvel of the infinite conditions swirling around me, and if I can vow to never harm a soul with thought, word, or deed, then my feet are on the path to awakening.

Something, somehow and sometime things unexpectedly happen. It’s a great feeling when such amazing occasions come about.

 Months ago, I came across this blog. When I browse through it was giving my goose pimples. The blog relates to someone young. At her age, she went through so so much. What is fabulous and magical is the fight she put up to transform. Who she is now is person world apart from whom she was not too long ago. She found the strength, determination, the greatness to move away from the effect and became the cause. She has become a girl with so much to hope, love and goodness to share. She has become who I named “my baby sister”. She is Mighty Morgan. A miracle!!

Yesterday I  invited Morgan to be a co-author with me for the Mind Body And Spirit blog. And this morning my “baby sister” agreed. I’m honored and happy. Read her blog and you’ll know what I meant. Morgan have a very touching blog. And see how well she writes too.

Toast to you, baby sister!! You’re special.

Life isn’t about find yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

Which one are you? How many of us really know who we are? Are we who we are by the mere fact that others said so?

 

There are Us who others said, “we’re good”. Then we know that we’re good. The next moment, some others just said, “we’re morons”. We react and became angry.

Are we playing the roles that others want us to be?

Who’s in control?

Those who wish us to be what they want us to be?

Or we’re in control of our life?

There are individuals who meditate. They achieved a state of calmness and serenity. The moment some of these individuals departed from the meditative state and encountered a challenge, they forgot about time they spent meditating to be strong inside. Instead they shifted their state and got out out of control.

Were they being dictated and controlled by the situation or the person at the Cause and these individuals became the Effect?

I would said many of us go about every second of our daily lives without truly searching ourselves of who we are. Whether all the things that we’re doing, are we pleasing ourselves or satisfying others around us?

Even if we managed to find out who we really are, is that what life’s finally all about? If there something else what we can achieve during our journey here?

How about creating ourselves?

Do we just want to live this life, one day at a time, plodding along without taking positive steps to making each passing day matters and creating a difference for ourselves. Only when we can make that difference for ourselves can we then make a positive difference for others.

What do you think? I hope you can please share…

The event is nothing;The respond is everything.

We do have a choice;

We can’t change the event but we can change our perception.

An event is always in the past tense. Do we want to live the past? It’s gone. That event coming back will not be exactly the same. Just like water in a flowing river, that water will never ever be the same. Do we want to expand our energies in an event that has already gone past for good? An anger, an irritation, a frustration, a sadness, a guilt, a fear.

Making a choice is being in the “Presence”. Being in “Now”. Letting the Past go. Releasing it. Finding a closure. Forgiving. Our life’s meant to be a joyful journey. We’re all here to live. Forgiving and releasing what has just pasted is the beginning to be aware of our Being.

Being in the Presence. Being in Now.

Similar to being in a relationship. Many of us during the times when we’re being with our parents, spouses, friends or children, we’re in a state of drifted lost. We’re not being aware of the joy of those connections. Our daily pressures and demand distant us from enjoying those connections. We tend to be lost in enjoying those relationships. We’re lost in our own thoughts while being with them. We aren’t being in an Aware state. We’re not in the flow. We’re being around our relationships for the sake of just being around. How often do we enjoy everyone single moment when we’re being around them. It’s not the amount time that we spent being with them. It’s about the quality time, although it might be for just a few minutes. If each of those minutes is a joy to both parties, those moments were not lost.

Just like when we fall in love, each moment is a blissful romantic moment. We’re in the flow; we’re being in absolute awareness; we’re being in absolute presence.

Think about this story…

A king was once asked by a man, “how can you be in a state of constant awareness. You’ve all the richness to corrupt you, to spoil you. You’ve the power to distract you“.

The king replied, “why not. Let me show you. Now carry this hot pot of oil on your head and never spill a drop. Follow me for a stroll beyond the gates of my palace“.

The king and the man walked past busy streets filled with aromas, sounds of music, whispers, snake charmers and beautiful women.

Having returning to the palace after the walk, the king asked the man, “now relate to me what you’d heard, the smell, things you’ve seen and felt “.

The man replied, “how could I’ve done any of those. I was concentrating on making sure the pot of oil was steadily balanced on my head“.

The king replied, “there you go. You’re in an absolute state of bliss. In total awareness and nothing else in important. You’re in the Presence. The events around you didn’t matter at all. You’re totally absorb with the moments while the pot of oil was on your head“.

Just like

- each breathe that we take, it’s a new breathe. We chose to enjoy that new breathe or treat it as just another breathe. “If it is to be, it is up to me“.Make that choice NOW.

And look at this symmetry:
1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 345678987654321

Now, take a look at this…

101%

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE OVER 100%.
How about ACHIEVING 101%?

What equals 100% in life?

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help answer these questions:

If:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

If:
H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

And:
K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But:
A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:

L-O-V-E-O-F-G-O-D
12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101%
Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, It’s the Love of God that will put you over the top!

Let’s discuss about these two words today.

Patience.

 

Tolerance.

 

Patience is – the ability to endure waiting, delay, or provocation without becoming annoyed or upset, or to persevere calmly when faced with difficulties.

Tolerance (Toleration) is a term used in social, cultural and religious contexts to describe attitudes and practices that prohibit discrimination against those whose practices or group memberships may be disapproved of by those in the majority. Though developed to refer to the religious toleration of minority religious sects following the Protestant Reformation, these terms are increasingly used to refer to a wider range of tolerated practices and groups, such as the toleration of sexual practices and orientations, or of political parties or ideas widely considered objectionable.

 

The principle of toleration is controversial. Liberal critics may see in it an inappropriate implication that the “tolerated” custom or behavior is an aberration or that authorities have a right to punish difference; such critics may instead emphasize notions such as civility or pluralism. Other critics, some sympathetic to traditional fundamentalism, condemn toleration as a form of moral relativism. On the other hand, defenders of toleration may define it as involving positive regard for difference or, alternately, may regard a narrow definition of the term as more specific and useful than its proposed alternatives, since it does not require false expression of enthusiasm for groups or practices that are genuinely disapproved of.

Now…these words have been referred to as virtues to have. I would like to offer another point of view. These two seemingly virtues are to me “Struggles”. Why?

Patience and Tolerance provoke a negative feeling. And inner struggle.

 

I know he is late but I’ll be patient. I’ll endure this habit of his of always being late.

 

He makes me angry but I will tolerate this anger. I’ll not lose my patience.

 

The society is tolerant of the minority.

 

These words have negative energies. By being tolerant and patient, the acts themselves sap us of our inner energies. Being in these states, adopting these mental states and behaviors, we’ll have to struggle with our feelings, our inner representations, our sub-modalites.

 

We create “Parts” within us that we might not even know. These thoughts unconsciously split our personality, our Being into parts.

 

What do you think?

The Duality of Pain And Pleasure

Our materialistic world is full of dualities and contradictions. Without Pain we know not of Pleasure. Only when we welcome Pain, we know and appreciate the sheer essence of Pleasure.I can’t agree with you more. If our hearts know not of Pain, how do we know there is Love?

If we don’t grow trees in our hearts, we’ll not let singing birds into hearts.
