To love is to be passionate

What is this word Love of which the meaning has been twisted forever?

It seems we never truly love someone eventhough we are intimated with someone physically, and also we never love other people or any living being.

Possession is not love. We cannot not possess anyone. The thinking that we can belong to someone is false. Nothing can be belonged to. They just exist there.

Love is not "seperative" between mine and yours (Does love mean loving one but not another?).

Love is not between two images, having images about someone. If it is so, we suffer when we loose someone because their images are no longer with us.

Love is not based on pleasures, if it is so, when we loose someone, we suffer because we instinctively feel that they no longer give pleasures to us.

Love being connected with the immeasurable energy, having mutual intense energy. Being connected with someone that way brings freedom from inner confinement and therefore generate the inner intense feeling of love that is cannot be described. It's a real freedom with no contamination of inner suffering and conflict.

Love is not possession, not seperative, not image-based and not based one pleasures, but rather a quality and energy of intense passion.

Also, love and compassion are the same. To love is to naturally care and to give without wanting anything for oneself.

When we love - and not the meaning of love that most people automatically feel or define - we are free and we are compassionate to all living beings. We can be with someone but we don't have to possess. We can have intimacy and at the same time love passionately.

Not Spending Money is Not Self Control

They say we earn a lot of money to spend on things to answer our wants so that we are happy.
Eventhough we earn a lot of money, it doesn't make sense to spend on what we don't need.
Eventhough we earn a lot of money, our aim shouldn't be spending on what we don't need.
Because happiness doesn't depend on spending.
People who earn a lot of money say, "Then I won't have happiness, if I self-control myself like that."
But people on the opposite realm of life say, "Not spending eventhough you earn a lot is not about self control at all." Because their happiness doesn't depend on spending, they are happy when they don't spend, and they are sad when they spend with the much money they have. Because they find joy and happiness in realizing spending money unnecessarily costs a lot of burdens to the society and the environment. And because they find happiness and joy in other things that are not "things".

Being Free or being Imprisoned in a Prison - You Choose

Which is better? You choose.

Being in a prison and not knowing you are in the (physical) prison. Suffering (psychologically) hysterically inside without knowing you are suffering...The suffering will only show up when things don't go your ways.

Being in the prison (mind prison) and fully realizing you are in the prison and so being free of it. However, you are imprisoned physically, so you suffer pain from being connected to everything but cannot break away and cannot liberate your fellow lives... But you in tune with the deeper realm of life, so you are joyous by having the purpose of doing something to liberate them, and with that realm of life, you can shake the thinking-too-much-of-others easily, so blissfulness is always with you.

Doing things for selfish purpose and disregard the wider pictures

I am writing about doing things for ourselves (for selfish purpose) but disregard other lives (or disregard the wider pictures). I better start by giving you an example to make you understand more clearly. A friend said it's good you will find a trick to chase the dove trapper in front of your house away so that “you won't see the sad incident anymore”. Eventhough it is great and morally-just to chase them away, it seems just so that she won't "see the sad incident”. How about if we successfully chase them away and they go to another spot to trap them, would that friend feel as sad as when she saw "the sad incident"? I would. It is like she doesn't want to see it because she "relates" to the baby dove nested in her own house. Relating is attachment and attachment makes you selfish and only think of yourself and not others (or being really compassionate to others wholeheartedly and do something about it purely for others’ happiness).

It's the same with not wanting to be in some areas of the town. It's great to choose a nice area to live in but you don't disregard people who live in the bad parts of the town. Or take Hong Kong, I don't ever want to live in it but I don't want it to exist and I am feelingful for the people and animals who live in it too.

It's the same with not having children - People who don't have children because they can't afford to take care of them are out of touch. Opposite to people who won't ever breed children for the benefits of the children themselves and the environment and. It's the same with donating money to some social causes just to make yourself be comfortable that you have helped, rather than donating to the causes on which you have comprehensively did research and are aware with your real insight that they really solve the problems at their roots. There are more, but I'm lazy to write other thoughts now.

Positive Cynicism

Some people call some people cynical because they don't know what cynicism really means. Being cynical doesn't mean it is not good for your inner being - Being cynical can be really healthy and peaceful because you know you are cynic because you are one with love, compassion and truth radically in your heart. Cynicism in this sense differs from cynicism of being grumpy and being against the world (negatively criticizing and looking at the things). It means viewing the things in a new meaning...For example, you see a person buying a plastic good...One person who is buying it thinks nothing but subsconciously there is a voice saying "It is for my convenience of life and I am satisfied". Nothing more than that. The other person who is in need of buying it thinks (conciously), "I am in need to use it, I am not buying it unnecessarily, and I am realizing that eventhough I am buying it I am not buying without realizing that where plastic comes from and what bad does it cause".

This is what I mean buy "blissful cynicism". It's a positive vibrating energy, not the cynicism of wanting to end one's life because the world is too miserable because of humans' evilish conducts. Unfortunately, most people view these people as unhappy and having self-control that stresses them, but in actuality, being aware that comes from love for living beings, the environment, society and the world is an extreme positive energy.

Everything is Wrong


By "everything is wrong" I mean EVERYTHING. I look around me - I'm typing on a plastic and metal and glass computer perched on a desk made from cut down trees and toxic paint. I sit in a building made of wood and bricks that were taken from the earth on a street made of poisonous asphalt that was laid over an ecosystem that had thrived for hundreds of thousands of years. I'm clothed in cotton that was saturated with pesticides while it grew and treated and dyed with toxic chemicals while it was being processed. All of my possessions were made hundreds or thousands of miles away and shipped in styrofoam and plastic wrap via gas burning engines and destructive road and air ways to me. My food, although organically grown and completely vegan, is shipped from where it was grown to my local store and is often packaged in paper, plastic, metal, and toxic inks. I know tons of people that eat meat, smoke cigarettes, drive cars, use drugs, etc., even though they know that these things will ultimately hurt the quality (and length) of their lives. I live in an apartment building where no one is on a first name basis. I know more about idiot actors in hollywood that I've never met than I do about the woman who lives next door to me (and is probably more interesting). While walking to work I inhale toxic exhaust from cars sitting in traffic. To make sure that eating 3 cans of oven cleaner will make you sick, or to make sure that pouring nail polish remover into your eyes will hurt you, we torture mice, rabbits, dogs, cats, etc. We use toxic chlorine bleach to keep our underpants white. We cut down the rainforests to drill for oil so that we can drive to the video store. Do you see what I mean? Everything really is wrong. Even the back to nature people still drive cars and use products made from materials ripped out of the earth. People struggle all of their lives doing work that they hate just to be a functioning member of a system that is wasteful, destructive and unhealthy.

What I advocate is this a sensible, pragmatic, and non-destructive approach towards existence, we need to re-evaluate our practices. Just as it doesn't make sense to hire an elevator operator to run an automatic elevator it doesn't make sense for billions of people to drive to work alone in their cars. It doesn't make sense to consume animal products. It doesn't make sense to use pesticides on agricultural products. It doesn't make sense to derive power from nuclear, coal, and petroleum when we have solar, hydro, and wind power. It doesn't make sense to maintain destructive systems just because people earn their livings from them. It doesn't make sense to pour billions of tons of toxic chemicals onto our lawns so that they'll look pretty and green. I could go on but you're probably either bored or overwhelmed by now. I advocate change; massive, massive change.

Basically we should stop doing these things that are destructive to the environment, other creatures, and ourselves and figure out new ways of existing.

What Never can be a Choice

It was true, it is true and it will always be true...that I think eating and consuming animal products are wrong. And it was true, it is true and it will always be true...that I will never be "militant" at or scold or force anyone to not do so. I always understand people that people have deeply-ingrained world view that is the most simple to change because the original love is in each and everyone of us but it is also most difficult to change because of society and the way our attitudes have been fundamentally embedded.

For that, eating animals and consuming animal products is a "choice". Though it should never be forced upon, it is Never a Choice. Suffering, torture, abuse, pain are not a choice. Being born, raised and die like a piece of disposable object is not a choice.

Coffee is a drug - a DRUG!

I'm going to seriously quit coffee, tea and even chocolate after reading this after I've failed countless times - http://www.wholevegan.com/coffee.html. Many of the symptoms in this article are true as they occurred to myself. I had headache several times (on the next day when I stopped coffee after many days of having  coffee) and one time it was the worst of the worst feeling like my head was fracturing and exploding, I had to took a leave from work.

Coffee is an addictive drug and makes you crave it for more once you drink it. And when you refrain from it, you get withdrawal (a drug-addict's bloody flux) symptoms. Any drug I believe is harmful to our body and mind. 

Coffee is actually not a substance that truly helps you recover from fatigue. Instead, it fools your mind and sense that it is not tired by over-stimulation. It doesn't do anything to help recover fatigue. As a result, the body takes toll of not resting when the person is supposed to, and if continued, lead to inevitable Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Fatigue is a built-in alarm system for body to let you know your body is ticking over too much and recharge is needed. Thus it is only right to eliminate the cause of fatiguenot to turn off the signal. The causes of fatigue? People are tired because of their nutrition, kinds of activity done, level of stress, time rested and slept.

 Strike at the real causes, not indulge in the harms of coffee, tea and chocolate.

Read this through and maybe it will inspire you as well: Coffee…What does it do to our body?http://www.wholevegan.com/coffee.html

Find your eternity in each moment

Life is not about getting but living. Not about expecting a job, getting a better job and better salary, getting to some destinations. It is about living and indulging in every moment, merging with the now, feeling blissful in everything in front of you.

"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment." -Henry David Thoreau

It's this kind of thing that wakes people up, please don't turn away. If you don't feel anything, just think



"Grant animals a ray of reason, imagine what a frightful nightmare the world is to them: a dream of cold-blooded men, blind and deaf, cutting their throats, slitting them open, gutting them, cutting them into pieces, cooking them alive, sometimes laughing at them and their contortions as they writhe in agony. Is there anything more atrocious among the cannibals of Africa? To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime."


“We manage to swallow flesh, only because we do not think of the cruel and sinful thing we do.”

Transcend you consciousness into love, and nothing but love

In the new style of yoga class (named Transcendas) I took on Thursday, 9 Feb 2012 with Shane, with integration of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) into yoga, I learned about the qualities I wanted to bring into and take out of my life. Shane asked to to choose one quality from The Four Perfect Virtues of Buddhism that we would like to bring into our life:
Metta - Learning to be your best friend and then also learning to be a friend to others.
Karuna - Compassion or seeing suffering in yourself and seeing suffering in others, and doing something to overcome your own suffering and the suffering of others.
Mudita - Being happy when you see others happy.
Upekkha - Having an equanimous and non-reactive mind - being equally non-reactive to ups and downs of life.

I chose Karuna - because I wanted to make my life to be of service to all lives Better. My current ways of living, though better than some others, are not good enough. So I spoke the word compassion in my mind while doing yoga poses that resembled bringing good energy into myself.

Shane also asked us to have in our minds a quality that we would like to discard from our lives/transform. In the actual class, I chose jealousy (like people with more beauty, haha), but I realize now that I want to choose "Minding others' bad treatment to me." Not that I can't retain my mind's stability when facing people saying bad to me, but sometimes I can't help feeling bad, though not too much.

And I want to transform bad treatment by others into Upekkha and love - into thinking that I might act wrongly, so I should improve; that I would never treat the same to anyone; and that everyone makes mistakes - Why do you expect humans with worldly nature to be perfect? It's not about forgiving - forgiving means you hate others which must happen before you forgive them, but understanding and working towards changing inner beings of all.
