与菩萨司机的对话

前晚乘搭德士时,遇到一位很特别的司机。在闲聊时,他发现我手上戴着的念珠。就产生了以下的对话。

司机:看你手上戴着念珠,你是拜佛的,还是学佛的?
我:hmm... 我试着跟随佛陀的教晦。
司机:可不可以用最简单一句话描述你对佛教的理解。
我:二千五百年多前, 释迦摩尼佛留下来的教晦。教众生如何面对生活。

最后那司机问:你心中有没有佛?
我回答:我心中有佛性。
那司机加强语气问:那你心中有没有佛?
我心中突然涌现一个答案,口中自然的回答:我本来就是佛。你本来也是佛。你说佛心中有没有佛?
那司机对我笑了笑合十的说:你这回答很禅。
我也对他合十笑了笑,跟着我就下车了。

佛心中有没有佛?我心想这司机是菩萨。这是他给我参的话头啊!

佛心中有没有佛?佛心中有没有佛?佛心中有没有佛?佛心中有没有佛?佛心中有没有佛?佛心中有没有佛?佛心中有没有佛?佛心中有没有佛?

经过了两天,虽然还没答案。不过我肯定我心中有佛,因为我心中有魔!因为有魔,所以我心中有佛。超越佛魔的心是怎样的一颗心呢?

When should Parenting start?

Thinking to post some parenting staffs long ago, these will be more on what I have study in my applied and child phsychology. Is good for me as a review as well. Ok let start with a simple post today.

"When should Parenting start?" This is the first question my lecturer ask during my child management class. After discussion we all come to conclusion, parenting should start as early as a couple decide to have children. This is not only our class's conclusion, also the advise from almost all the child professional.

In order to give your child the best parenting care, adult must be get ready both physically and mentaly. In these informative age, I guess most of us can get information about nutrition and what should eat and what shouldn't during pregnancy or baby easily. But this is only one part of it. A lot of people didn't take note or under estimate the importance of mental preparation. These always become the cause of the problem.

As what and why the mental preparation is so importance? I shall discuss this in the next post.

Who can really listen to me?

Suddenly have this strong feeling. No body can really listen to what I want or my feeling (more accurate). All people listen with their perception their feeling. May be I am not good in communication or express myself (as what Joan say). Really sad! All the people only know what they want and need. How about me?????

I think when I listen to people I also have the same problem. That why always can really give people what they want.

Is that normal for all the people??

The Secret

Bought a book from Kino yesterday. I bought the Chinese version and Joan bought the English version - "The Secret". Know this book from a book review in a Chinese Newspaper. Found it interesting, cos the secret that the book mention I seem to know, but some time just can't follow. I alway say this to Joan "if you want some thing, just think about it and it will come." Some time she think that I jokewith her, but this is so real to me, I experience it many times in my life and me and Joan experience this when we prepare our wedding.

But there is one part I miss out or some how just ignore it, which is this not only apply to thing that you want, but it apply to things that you don't want as well. This book make me reallise this. For example, we may always think "why I can't earn a lot of money?" In this theory, if we think in this way, we will forever "can't earn a lot of money". If we want to earn a lot of money, we should just think "I want to earn a lot of money" or "I will earn a lot of money".

For those who don't like to read, can get the DVD - The Secret (Extended Edition) . Here is the webside http://shop.thesecret.tv

Enjoy :)

What if take out all the "right" and "wrong"?

Zen Master Angel, I really love your comment. I will put up both my hand and leg to agree it. "right is wrong, wrong is right", YES, cos both of them are concept of human being. "Right" only exist when "wrong" is there, and "wrong" only exist when "right" is exist. What if take out all the "right" and "worng"?

Most of the people worry of this scenario. But the fact is, only when we take out the "right" and "wrong" concept, then we can see the "real thing", that is "cause and effect" (因果). So, "just do it" if you can we face the consequences, but if you can't then better think twice. :P

Sunset

Ok, Janny: Put up some photo for you.
Here is some sunset photo I took last weekend when I was having dinner at home.





Like the sunset with "Big" sun. When I was teenage, when ever see the big sun during the sunset, I will rush to the seaside at my hometown to catch it. Like to see the sun go down to the sea slowly without any cloud block it. It really beautiful, you can see the sky is keep changing color, the big red sun go down and down until it touch the sea. Once it touch the sea, it you go sown very fast thil the whole sun disappear. Is really worderful. And the feeling is so peaceful and relax. Really love it. In my memory, I manage to catch this 3 to 4 times. Of cos the photos here are not as great as what I saw. But I belive that you have saw it thru my description. :)

What is Right? What is wrong?

What is Right? What is wrong? This seem like a very easy question. But when you ask 10 people this question, you will get 10 diffenrent long lists. You may surprise to find that some of the items in one person's "right" list may be appear in another person's "wrong" list.

We always judge "rigth" or wrong" by action, but the problem is an action may be "right' in this time, at this place, to this particular being, but it may be "wrong" in another time, place and another person. This always make us confuse. Few weeks back, when i chit chat with my brother in law, he told me somebody told him, nothing wrong with robbing and stealing, cos the robbers and thieft need to survive. This make him confuse, at one hand he know that the "actions" (rob and steal) is wrong, but what the guy say also have a point.

Guys and gals, if you were me, what will you say? and may I know what is your "right" and "wrong"? care to share?

Moody Sunday

Don't know why today feel very "pik chik". May be not enough sleep? May be wake up late?? May be a lot of thing not done or doing half way??? Hai may be PMS!!!!!


You might wonder how come i put up this photo. This 荷叶饭 is what me and Joan can't finish during our lunch. Just now about 4PM I reheat it, and u know what? I TOTALLY FORGOT about it until 6.45PM then I realise. Lucky my wok is tough enough, if not i might need to call the Civil Defend liao :P

My wok and the 荷叶all turn black :( Hehehe but oh..... the rice is very nice :P..... hmmmmm I think next time the 荷叶饭 we can use bake instead of steam.

ABCD Part2

Well done Joan and MK! Joan you get the main point of it, but as you know the "Ang Mo" they always know how to name it. MK, you get half of it, good try. The answer is "Beliefs". Under beliefs not only irrational belief and there have rational beliefs as well. Why is beliefs and not expectation? According to this guys, Albert Ellis, "belief's" included a person's attitudes, expectations and personal rules.


Ok, then what is rational beliefs and what is irrational belief? Just a simple question, if some one say: " I must have my dinner 7pm tonight." Do you think this is rational or irrational? The answer is irrational. Why? The problem is the word "MUST". Who can be so sure that we can have our dinner in a exact time or place? There are so many unforeseen things around, like traffic or when you want to have you dinner and somebody come and visit you..... This is just a small issue in our life, how about if you say "I must earn my 1st million before 45 years old." This sound familiar right? What happen is we can do it? We will feel sad, disappointed etc... all kind of negative emotion will come up. So if that is the case, is that mean that we better don't have any goal in our life?

No, have a goal or target to achieve is very important. The only thing we need to do is change our irrational thinking to rational thinking. Say it or think it in a preference way. For example, we can just say "I will like to have my dinner 7pm tonight if i can." "I will try my best to earn my 1st million before 45." What do you think? Doesn't this sound much unstress?

Of cause we need to work hard to achieve some thing, but how is the result turn out, we need to accept it at a right/positive attitude. I like a chinese saying 只问耕耘,不问收获. Just work hard and the rewards will come by its own.

The ABCD I am sharing here actually is a councilling approach name RATIONAL- EMOTIVE & COGNITIVE- BEHAVIOR THERAPY. For those who are interested can visit this website http://www.rebt.org/ to read more about it. :)

ABCD

Just learn a woderful theory this monday. We call this "ABC" theory. I fully agree with this theory, I don't know what you guys think? Ok let me explain a bit on this. A = Activating Event and C = Consequences (Feeling & Behaviour). Most of the people will think certain events happen sure will lead to certain consequences. For example, normally when we very angry with some things, we will say "If this this this not happen in this way.... I will not be so angry."



In this cast we are assuming the stiuation we meet it will "DEFINITELY" make people angry. But is that so? Most of the time when we talk to others, we get many different reaction. Some may be more angry then us, some may say "chea.... what get so angry? is nothing what.." Why have so many different reaction? Where is the missing link? The answer is "B"


Want to know what is "B"?? Look out for my next post. Or if you know or want to guess, you are most welcome to leave you comment here.

Who is more lucky?

Found this photo I took before Chinese New Year when sorting my photos. One day when i wat at Chinatown, I saw a young guy keep on follow this old lady and took a lot of photos. So I decide to take down this scene. In my mind, I think "what a poor old lady, working so hard just for a living and need to bear with all this curious staring and their camera sometime." (Later I saw the guy give the old lady some money, so I won't put him up here)

During the Chinese New Year holiday, me and joan went back to KL. we visited my mother in law. Her full time "job" is take care of her parent, our "gong2 & poh2". Gong2 is 90+ and poh2 is almost 90 years old. Like many old people, they start to lose some of their ability. Especial their memory, gong2 even can't remember his son's name. I can see the frustrated on his face.

Look at the photo of the old lady, and think of gong2 and poh2. Who is more lucky? This old lady may no have any body take care of her, but she can take care of herself, may be she feel good even need to work hard. Gong2 & poh2 although have someone to take care of them, but can tell that they are happy. They feel frustrated that why they need some one to take care, why they can't do things by thier own.....

After think over, I feel that all three of them are lucky. :) What do you think?

Self Portrait Photo (Me and my grandma)

Trying to find a self portrait, go thru all the folders in computer, realise that only have one self photo with my grandma, so decise to put it on.

My grandma, 88 years old. She always look happy. She have things or people to worry, just some how she have a way to let go.

Always taking photo of others and things or event happen around, but seldom take own photo. Just like in life, always looking at things happen around but seldom look into ownself. Think is time to look into own self more offen, with this blog it might help :P
