True Colour

Wednesday, April 26, 2006

My affinity with blue seems endless whaha...anyway for those who want to try your true colour, enjoy.

BLUE

You're blue — the most soothing shade of the spectrum. The color of a clear summer sky or a deep, reflective ocean, blue has traditionally symbolized trust, solitude, and loyalty. Most likely a thoughtful person who values spending some time on your own, you'd rather connect deeply with a few people than have a bunch of slight acquaintances. Luckily, making close friends isn't that hard, since people are naturally attracted to you — they're soothed by your calming presence. Cool and collected, you rarely overreact. Instead, you think things through before coming to a decision. That level-headed, thoughtful approach to life is patently blue — and patently you!

Cause and Effects again

Monday, April 17, 2006

Never did I expect to see this or write this, however, this morning when I wake up and turned on my email, got this email alert from friendster that says one of your friend's blog is updated. Although I rarely go visit his blog, but this morning I just click on it to see. To my surprise the updated latest topic was cause and effect and the whole paragraphs goes like this...

"One reaps what one sows. It is very simple, and is agreed upon and accepted by most people. Every effect has its cause. However, if we talk about cause and effect without considering the condition, we are a fatalist. Buddhism rejects it. An effect can only arise depending on condition(s). Cause is primary while condition is secondary. In other words, a wholesome deed at present can be a cause of a good retribution/effect in future. However, a wholesome deed at present can also be a condition for preventing the bad retribution (evil effect due to the evil cause in the past), as a bad retribution usually comes in effect under adverse/unwholesome conditions. Even if it really comes, the effect is generally less severe, particularly if we sincerely repent of our evil deed in the past. Moreover, since cause cannot come in effect without condition(s), it is important to note that although one cannot change the cause and effect, one can change the conditions. This is why Buddhism emphasizes to change our fate by changing the condition.

If we cultivate the wholesome causes, we have good retribution. Thus, we should have a strong belief and deep understanding of the law and act in accordance with it, in order to have a better living with happiness and blessings. "

Reading this I feel like it's an extracts from somewhere, and so I went in search to pursue the truth. I thought there should be more than just this and I found the related study and it originates from the Law of Dependent Origination. When I have more spare time I would want to explore/study this law.

Cause & action karmic

Thursday, April 13, 2006

Sleepless night, I do not know why...It shouldn't be the way as it's the second time in the week. Perphaps I have zealous of energy to burn now?

Today interesting was discussing about reglion on MSN with two friends. One of the question was raised was do I believed in karma? Well yes I do for I believed in the action and cause, and that you sow the seeds of what you reap. Then I would know that the next question he would ask is that why some people did a lot of mean things and still enjoy the goods?

Taking the example of incarnation or previous life doesn't seems to be proving a science thing to him. Neither do i know how to answer this, but I found this answer later in the night. The stand that I have is using time as a measurement. In a human, we are jealous of the obvious, why are some people enjoying the riches and fortune while some people suffer? Considering a human lifespan is short, would they be able to see what history or time passed judgement much latter down the road?

Time is infinity for all that we know. It will continue travel in the forward direction, and will never stop even if it's end of world, it transit to the next level I would say. Since time is never-ending, it will create history and history passes judgement. That is where the judgement came in. Some judgement are immediate that is people are punished for their evil deeds. But some who's acts are not discovered in their life time, are now punished or branded with a bad reputation. They maybe despised by the people of their current generation of time.

Now another thought came to me was that since this is about planting seeds hehe, it's science to say that different seeds produce different results. And we all know that some plants their fruit bloom and ripe faster while some you take a life time to nuture it to bloom (Did you know that a palm tree they blosom once and after which they dies off.). So if you compare this with the earlier question, it's metaphor to say that the seed of action is like planting. Some got their good or ill-effect as their plant grow and blossom earlier due to the environment factor or the effect they take into watering, fertilizing. And they are those who's fruit may never blossom in their life or at a very long stage. Thus this cause and effect karmic rule that i believes in will stand it's ground.

Since this is a open society to choose your belief in, you decide for yourself if it withholds. For me I presented my stand, and when my time comes as what i told him, I will go into my belief practise.

Language

Tuesday, April 04, 2006

I am thinking of something to write but yet nothing really caught the attention of my mind of what to write...A few things though I find it interesting to write about yet I am just not in the mood to write...Saturday night on TV this this show called a dialog with the PM, which I feel very informational. As much as he tries to understand the kinda of citizen that he governs under, commoners like us also might want to have a peek at how his view is like. Is he well-informed, aware of the situation that most local people experiencing?

The invited guests to ask the PM ranges from different classes of work, taxi driver, stall owner to business owner, lawyer etc. A few of the more common problems were discussed, and most of the time the session was kept at a constructive manner. I am impressed by the PM ability to speak full proper impromptu Chinese throughout the session.

In this mixed culture, our languages have also got mixed up. Our main languages have been blended, and a uniquely language called Singlish is formed. And if you tried using this oversea to speak to the client in US, or China, they will not understand our singlish English or Chinese... As much as possible that the country is promoting this mixture of culture, yet our language mixing is not recognised and we are encouraged to speak proper language, an irony?

This reminded me of a blog refered by 28degree that one of his friend is complaining loudly at her blog for the UN decision to use Simplified Chinese as the unifed Chinese language. Reading her blog, I can tell that she is young and naive, still have yet to understand how the world revolves. Her passion for Tradditional Chinese was there, but the complicated thing to write the character really slows down learning. But as for my view, it's not my decision to say it's good or bad for history being the time keeper will tell.

Two thousands years back when Emperor Qin burnt away a lot of books and unified Chinese, the people of the time finds it a pity and branded him as cruel. Yet however two thousands now, there are historian who compliment such an action help unified China, and prevented more languages barrier. History being history, for me I like the nice characters and symobolism of the Tradditional Chinese character. However to write it I still prefer Simplified Chinese as the strokes are a killer. Either or, I'm proficient with reading both of them!

Seems that as I started to write, the mood starts to get in and flow...
