Real thoughts

Tuesday, 23 March, 2010

“…stripping away denial and rationalization you start coming to the truth of who you really are…”

— Tiger Woods,

2010, March 21st, ESPN interview

This  cannot be done by just looking in mirror :) It takes time on real thinking!

Second real thought:

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts”

— Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus

Roman Emperor (121-180)

The actions from the quality thoughts would produce visible happiness as well.

Real hard

Tuesday, 2 February, 2010

Watched the show of “My Name Is Earl”, which was a comedy with good intention — we need to pay back the “bad seeds” we did in the past in order to gain the balance of life. If we did pay back, we would simply be happy & peace now and future. Easy to say, but really difficult to do so, even we could agree on the karma. The mindset to change to do the “good seeds” is not easy especially there is no influence of morphine as Earl had. Laughing with kids to watch together was quite feeling good though.

The second hard thing I also just learn was from Shakespeare “Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none.” A lot of people with pure mind and good heart could love lots of others. We all know we trust only few. Even I believe “never say never” or “nothing is impossible” as universal truth, I have to say “do wrong to none” is not possible. We did wrongful stuff to hurt someone at sometime no matter how we try not to. I guess I need to read more and think deep with ~ A Calendar of Wisdom ~. Join me?

Real pain in the butt

Thursday, 11 June, 2009

Somehow I have myself rolling the “Real” titles along the blog. It’s actually quite buggy that way. Or as this title has spelled out.

In fact, I’ve been lazy do post on this blog because I couldn’t think of “real” stuff all the time.

I guess I don’t live in the real life all the time neither. Are you a dreamer too? I was born in the Chinese year of boar (pig), so I got perfect excuse for that. And you?

why pig?

why pig?

Real health secret

Wednesday, 18 February, 2009

After studying the medical knowledge over Southbaylo university over a year now, I finally realized there was no such thing called health secrets that I thought before went to the school. The most basic real formula I discover is form by  Sleep, Eat and Exercise. Simply put, “SEE”.

Yes, health=sleeping+eating+exercising=”S.E.E.”

You “see” it, you got it! If you had problem with any one of these, you are not healthy.

It’s real health formula would last forever for human beings.

In fact, a good doctor should always advise the patient that even doctors, medicines, modern or ancient medical treatments/technologies could save the patient from sickness, disease or even death (in the unknown future:) but if the patient’s life style doesn’t compose these three basic elements in the right format, there would be no final health solution for the patient. That is, he or she could easily become unhealthy again.

You may say you have been doing these three elements along but you are not healthy? Here is the keyword: moderation!

Do you sleep with proper hours? Including hours you sleep, the time to go to bed and get up.

Do you eat with real healthy food? And the right amount?

Do you exercise? And at what level?

It’s all about doing these three things at the right time with moderation.  So after all, there is a secret of how to do it right with moderation, like the old Chinese secret Yin Yang seek into balance :( I believe that is down to the individual — everyone is different on the detail moderation level. In any case, please keep the formula of sleeping+eating+exercising in mind first.  SEE :)
