The Secret to You



Today is the beginning of my new life
I am starting over today
All good things are coming to me today
I am grateful to be alive

I see beauty all around me
I live with passion and purpose
I take time to laugh and play everyday
I am awake, energized and alive

I focus on all the good things in life
And give thanks for them
I am at peace and one with everything
I feel the love, the joy, the abundance

I am free to be myself
I am magnificent in human form
I am the perfection of life (wah... this one reminds me of someone)
I am grateful to be me

Today is the best day of my life! Indeed Indeed... =)

My dear family, loved ones and friends, you are all magnificient and a good teacher in my life. =)

好感叹阿... Had the chance of corresponding with a divorced father who is pinning so hard for his son but is alienated from him by a 6 months non access court order despite having granted parental access.

The court's reasons:
1. The son claims that he does not want to see the father.
2. The son is having his PSLE exams.

I wonder if the mom has ever realised that she has such an important role to play in this matter. No matter how much bad blood exist between her and her ex-spouse, a child should always be encouraged to acknowledge his real parentage and to also be given a chance to spend time with both parents. 孩子不是个人的感情工具阿. It is not like the poor dad is shunning away from the duties of a responsible father.

If she can generously provide that bridge, the child will not lose his father.

残缺也是美



記得家鄉門口的那個女孩,
一對膀子長短都不一樣,
走起路來總是一瘸一拐,
說起話來結巴沒人愛。
I remember the gal from my hometown.
With a pair of uneven legs,
She limps as she walks.
Nobody likes how she slurs in her speech.

街坊的小孩總是嘲諷陷害,
女孩無話只能靜靜無奈;
Kids in the neighbourhood ridicule/taunt her.
She remains silent.

外婆告訴我不可以笑她,
因為殘缺也是一種美!
我看清晨女孩挽著衣籃搖擺,
Grandma disallows me from laughing at her,
Because her disability is a kind of beauty.
I watch as she struts and sways while carrying her basket in the wee hours of the dawn.

從家門口漸漸走來,
那忍辱負重的步伐輕輕邁開,
堅毅善良的面龐多麼淨白。
我終於明白。
From her doorstep she walks closer.
Her every step speaks of endurance towards humiliation.
Her unswerving determination and kind face was ever so pure.
I finally understood.


月亮不一定要圓滿,殘缺也是一種美麗;
人生不一定要擁有,享有也是一種福氣。
逆來順受,化腐朽為神奇,
殘缺生命,也能彩繪成美麗的詩偈。
The moon need not always be round, disability can also be a beauty.
We do not need to possess everything in life, to enjoy it is also a blessing.
To bear in adversity and turning it into a miracle,
A disabled life can also paint its most beautiful legacy.

Midway

If you adjust the strings of a string instrument too taut, the strings will snap before you can play any music. If you let it go too loosely, nothing comes out too.

The answer always lie in the midway. =)

Somehow this poem appear now and then, and every time I read it, it conjures back images.

千百年来碗里羹
冤深似海恨难平
欲知世上刀兵劫
但听屠门夜半声

How beautiful is the Chinese language to depict such immense emotion...

Meditation

What I had thought to be an hour turns out to be only 15 mins when I tried meditation daily. My 功夫不到家. lol

Though I'm still terrible at it, meditation did help me clear alot of clutter from the mind. I am able to sleep more peacefully nowadays and not get insomia.

Interestingly enough, on 2 occasions, there was a flash of white light each time. They happened when I finally got rid of all thoughts at that split second. But of cos I got excited when I see that light and I jumped out of the state as fast as I got in.

I want to conquer my own mind!

Work

Am still working away at 1am! BOO HOO!!

Anyway Dow is looking quite bad tonight..
