An incident to remember

Mark this day for an incident triggering deep thoughts.

My friend K has a thick shell outside as I always know and is used to use mean attitude to cover his soft and vulnariable heart. I see him as an important and unique friend to whom I give the most of my tolerance and caring. Today when he rejected my one proposal with again a little mean attitude and without giving explanations, I responded by comparing him with another common friend T and claimed that the other friend treats me much tenderly and would even want to offer his kitchen for my birthday party. I didn't intend to demean him and make him less than the common friend. But what he said next really irritated and hurt me. He said that the common friend told him privately in their drinking event that he wouldn't want to even attend my birthday party. I have no doubt that what he said should be factual for our common friend is a person as such - mocking and saying harsh words which don't reveal his true meaning.  After hearing it, I was really upset and later angry, not because of anything regarding my birthday party, but because I don't want this common friend be used to demonstrate a bad intent or behavior. I don't want anyone to demean him and ruin his reputation.

Goodbye 2017

Well, tradition is tradition. Year end is coming. Perfect time to do retrospect and the new year's outlook. 
Probably starting from actual happenings.
January 2017 - Italy road trip with Gay. Drove 5000km by myself from south to north, passing by Genova, Rome, Florence, Tuscany mountains and Naple. Amazing trip with spectecular views, plenty of spaggettes in all flavors, unforgettable one.

Preparation

7:46AM CET, December 18, Monday. I'm preparing mentally and physically for a new start of my blog. I've been writing blogs in Chinese for over 10 years. Generally there isn't any problem of expressing my thoughts and revealing my deep emotions in Chinese, which is my mother tongue. But I must admit that doing the same in English is not that simple. Maybe it is the right time to challenge myself in acquiring a new skill. Why not.

谜团

我的人生里有几个谜团,比如李修和、比如新加坡女人,谜底揭晓的时候应该有什么样的感触呢?

没有欢喜没有痛苦的人生,是不是会很无聊呢?大把大把的时间应该如何消磨呢?

同步性事件记录

又发现了一个同步性事件。

多年前收到徐峥的第一个礼物很特别,是一张万智牌的天使牌。他很痴迷于这款桌面游戏。NU时代阿楠甚至把万智牌制作成了在线游戏。

昨天惊讶的发现,我现任老板Beth Fischi的老公Allan Varney就是万智牌的发明人之一。

品质

经过很多时间、很多人、很多事,才确知一件事情:

人存在世上的唯一目的是锤炼自己的品质。包括爱、谦逊、理解、宽容、忍耐、慈悲、牺牲... ...

所有的发生,都是给予我们机会去锤炼这些品质,直至灵魂能够得到完全净化。聪明、机敏、巧善,各样的技能,对人生而言毫无意义,无非是在锤炼品质时抛溅出的一些副产品,有则善用,无则释然。

我在此生已经接受的考验里,有些顺利通过、有些遗憾失败。很想对所有顺利通过的试炼表示感激,对那些因我的失败而伤害到的人们表达真诚的歉意,无论你们是否能够看到。

把人生历炼的安排交给更高的力量

今早上班路上突然又想到了一件事情。

人生的经历,比如会遇到什么人、事,大多由业力所决定,前世的业报必须代偿,非人力所能左右。这既可以说是自作自受,也可以说是遵循至高无上的天道。既然如此,就把人生历练的安排交给更高的力量,坚持在人、事遭遇时保持正念、正信、正行,历经劫难之后,方能重生。

当你希望得到什么的时候,一定以最正确的念头向这个更高的力量提出需求,并坚信你同它是一种合作的关系:它为你安排故事的情节,而你全心修炼自己,直到你们共同把所希望的结果创造出来。
