Joy embedded within our hearts

People spend hours, days, years, even the whole life seeking for meaning of happiness. What really makes them happy? Is it a new job? A new spouse? A new home? A new car? No matter what you fill in the blank with, the answer will always be no. Happiness is not about who you’re with or where you are or what you have. Can these add to your happiness? Yes they can. Can these things create your happiness? Never.

Happiness is about loving yourself while constantly changing to become a better you. This comes from deep inside your heart and soul. Outside circumstances may create difficulties or hardships, but true happiness prevails because you know that you will survive and move beyond this point in life. Not only will you survive, you will be a much wiser and stronger person for having gone through those specific circumstances.

The meaning of happiness is an elusive thing to those that do not understand it. One has to only look inside themselves, and not out in the world, to discover the joy that has been hiding all along within their hearts.

Joy is an state of an inner tranquility. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, money, possessions, power … … – but lack peace of mind, you can are far away from joy.


“I’m a human being, not a human doing”

Before we start to talk about this topic, let’s clarify this one firstly: what defines human being?

I checked it up the dictionary, and that’s the answer I found as the following : Any individual of the genus Homo, especially a member of the species Homo sapiens. a person, especially as distinguished from other animals or as representing the human species

Secondly, what’s the difference between Human being and Human doing?

There are two ways we can function in this world. We can navigate using the spirit, or using the mind. The spirit, will put us into contact with soul expression and expansion, while the mind, will put us into contact with schemes and strategies.

Nowadays, the issue our society facing is that we are struggling so hard to measure up to other people’s demands and expectations, and we never have time to learn who we are, we rarely have the chance to be really ourselves. We are more human DOINGS rather than human BEINGS.

Taking it one step further, living through the mind is fear-based while living through the spirit is love-based.  Setting an intention for the life you want, and taking small steps towards it with love each day – are the most profound things you can do to tap into your being. It sounds simple. However, it takes courage and work. The mind loves to control; that is its job. But with control comes a domino effect of other hindrances, such as worry and fear, that end up blocking our vast potential.

The choice is always ours. If you feel you’ve done all you can do, yet feel there is more that can be attained, then let it go. It takes courage, faith, belief and trust to surrender. Attaining these traits requires training the mind. But when you do so, and live from being rather than doing, then you are actually living. You are moving towards Oneness with all that is. You are opening yourself up to the greatness that resides within you, waiting to be released. Our function is to know what we want, believe we can get it, surrender to the process and wait for the miracles to unfold.

Dog is not just for gift, but for life

I have always been a dog lover. It doesn’t matter what breed, what shape, what size, what colour, long fur or short fur, … I love them to the bits.

As matter in fact, I love all types of animals. In my own opinion, there is no difference between human beings and other animals. If there is one, then I guess it’s that animals, especially dogs, they never fake their love.

I have a dog, a German-shepherd, who came into our lives around seven years ago, since then he has stolen our hearts and changed everything in our lives.

As we all know, life was never easy. Every time when I felt a bit down or tired after a long day, he never failed to uplift my mood and made me feel a bit relaxed… right from the moment I came into the house.

Every time when I opened the door, he would jumped off the sofa, and quickly rush towards me, wagging his tail, shaking his head, running around in a circle, expressing a warm welcome to me. From that moment, all my exhausted feeling has bee distracted and drifted away. How wonderful it is to start a relaxing and cheerful family time from the moment your first step into your home.


日子过得真快!为了多练一下我的中文写作水平,于是我鼓足勇气参加了一个朋友举办的为期一个月的写作训练营。转眼间,一个月的时间就要到了。在这期间,周一至周五,按要求每天都要完成一篇500 字以上的文章。开始的时候,由于时间紧凑,又久不谙习中文写作,所以,经常不知写些什么内容亦或从何下笔,文字的功底也显得很生疏。




这群朋友中,有为人师长的, 有自己做生意的, 有为公司效力的, 有司法战线的,有为了自己的梦想上下求索的,有为了子女家庭,辛勤劳作的。 每一个人都在为着自己的生活,在拼搏着,努力着……….







文章的标题是:尽情的欢叫吧!— 一直被遗弃在路边的狗狗重获新家

文章讲述的是关于一只叫Snoop的牛头梗在去年圣诞节期间( 具体日期为十二月17日),连同它睡觉的垫子一起被它的主人无情的抛弃在路边。当它的主人开车驶离现场的时候,Snoop还在车子周围不断的排怀,使劲的摇着它的尾巴哀求它的主人可以带它一起离开…… 这个令人心碎的场面恰巧被附近的监控录像拍了下来。当这段录像被放上往后,引起了全世界无数人的悲愤。

成千上万的爱狗人士在观看了这段令人心酸的录像后,都纷纷表示愿意领养这只可爱又可怜的牛头梗,其中就包括与之同名的美国著名饶舌歌手Snoop Dogg。但最终,RSPCA(宠物援助、拯救、管理部门)决定让一位刚刚失去同样也是牛头梗的主人收养了它。当这只被遗弃的狗狗见到它的新主人时,一种相互吸引的关系很快就建立了起来。(对于遗弃Snoop的前狗主人的调查仍在继续进行当中。)






不知何时,原本浓密乌云散了许多,太阳迫不及待的从云层中爬了出来,煦暖的阳光很快洒满整片树林。看上去,很温暖,很舒服。 忽而,几只鸟儿掠过,落在枝头休息,顺便吟唱几声清脆明亮的歌声,使得原本摇头晃脑的一棵棵树木,纷纷定下身来静静地倾听,愣头愣脑的风儿也早已不知何处去了。

整幅画面在随着时间的流动而不断变化着,显得别有一番情趣。我本来因着阴天下雨的天气而变得有些低沉阴郁的心境,也不知何时逐渐明朗起来。 可能这就是大自然的魅力所在,所有的一切变化、规律尽在其中。



“人间有味是清欢” 出自大文豪苏轼先生的《浣溪沙·细雨斜风作晓寒》。



这句“人间有味是清欢”与他另外一首词《定风波》中的“此心安处是吾乡”有着异曲同工之妙。 都在某种程度上表达了笔者在经历了人生的起起浮浮,尝尽了世间的苦辣酸甜之后,所领悟到什么才是生命过程中最本真的东西,这是一种何等的境界和胸怀。
