Fragments of flashing thoughts

Zhu’s prose works are very common except a few pieces of selections familiar to us. His writings on travels in Europe are so boring that I had to read with a will. This reminds me of a young ancient gifted scholar named Jiang who ran out his talent after finishing a few brilliant works. Nevertheless, he could be proud to win a place in the history of Chinese literature, which is beyond the reach of a great many literary enthusiasts. So I come to a conclusion that for us readers, it is unnecessary to appreciate all the works of some authors who fascinate us most by their masterpieces. Even Zhu himself confessed that he had no talent for writing stories, let alone novels. As for novels, after the four great classical novels there have been almost no Chinese novels comparable to those of foreign countries in nineteenth century Dream beauty pro.

At present,the TV channels and programs may be said numerous. But those worthy to watch are really small. Two factors are responsible for the result. First, for their own reasons, the disqualified programs drive more and more audiences away. Second, people tend to be lured by computers and mobile phones which can offer more choices to their satisfaction. Provincial and municipal TV programs can be cast aside as refuse. Central TV’s politics–oriented news and time–killing made–up TV play serials can be ignored too. The documentary channel, the science and educational channel and the drama channel are all recommendable for watching. And the weather forecast in the first channel of CCTV is a must of my everyday concern. Waiting for Me we regularly watched is among the best programs. The program comes to people’s help searching for missing kin or those losing contact. The service is totally free of charge, a noble cause benefitting people. Many social problems were revealed by the program including domestic violence and trafficking of women and children. The experiences and affections of the people concerned were true and moving, audiences present and the hostess were often in tears. When the separated family members or friends were reunited at last, all got relieved. Human traffickers must be punished severely. I wish no tragedies of such separation would ever happen again.

There will be an academic meeting this weekend on Chinese culture at the provincial guesthouse. Some experts and professors are to give lectures on studies of Chinese ancient civilization. A number of personages from the cultural circle in our province are going to show up at the assembly. Reporters from different influential media are invited to the gathering. Our school also received an invitation to the forum. Our headmaster thought me a learned person and decided to send me to attend the meeting. I was reluctant to go but unwilling to disobey the arrangement. Later I recommended Mr. Yu to principal to replace me. First I successfully convinced Yu to go in my stead. I pointed out to him that he is young and promising, especially endowed with a deep voice which can fascinate audiences when making speeches in public. And he mustn’t miss this good opportunity to learn and broaden his horizons. Finally he agreed to my analysis and persuasion. I told principal my difficulty for presence at the meeting that I have to look after my sick mother at home. He nodded in agreement at last. I would rather stay at home reading than make the journey to the lectures by sacrificing my own time Dream beauty pro.

Establishing A Daily Meditation Practice

It's important to establish a daily practice and then stick to it. This doesn't mean dedicating 12 hours a day to meditation, it just means creating a space in your home where you can take a few minutes and meditate and do the exercises. I advise people to start with some of the basic exercises and devote 10 -20 minutes a day as they develop their physical and mental abilities. Many people quite simply overload themselves and expect too much too soon, then get discouraged when they don't see the results they thought they should Hong Kong travel trade updates.

Getting Started

Set aside a corner in one of your rooms. You can stock it with whatever accoutrement you wish. Many folks have cushions, candles, incense and a small CD player for music or guided meditation CD's. Use whatever tools and accessories you want to, as there's no right or wrong at this point.

Once you've created your 'sacred space' then all you have to do is use it. Set aside a few minutes each day and begin working on your breathing and Full Body Awareness. Don't worry at this point about how long you meditate, just get into the habit of doing it. The effects of meditation are cumulative, so 5 minutes a day everyday is better than 20 minutes once a week.

Eventually you'll get to the point where you don't need any accessories and you can clear your mind and meditate anywhere, at any time, but for now don't worry about that, just create a pleasant, sacred atmosphere and get started.

On 'Expectation'

In the spiritual circles we often hear people talking about doing things 'without expectation'. It's amazing how often the simple truths are all around us company incorporation.

When we begin meditation or working towards the kundalini, we often feel that we should be able to do certain things within a certain time frame. We expect to be able to clear our minds and access our deeper abilities. We expect to be able to sit for an hour and meditate, or to see auras, or feel other people's chi. Then when it doesn't happen we become disappointed and confused. I can't tell you how important it is to break free of these expectations.

When we let go of expectations and learn to just relax in the moment and just BE, then we are making progress of the most important kind. In the west we tend to be so goal oriented and have a need to see results, but frequently the cumulative effects of meditation aren't noticeable until much later. Meditation is about this moment, about BEing totally in this moment, rather than about who you'll be when you've become a good meditator.

The important thing with a regular practice is to just do it. The effects are cumulative and one day you'll look back and see that all those short meditation sessions actually added up LED Lamp Company.

Lessons from My Garden

What does "Lessons from My Garden" have to do with "getting organized? One of the things I've learned after 20+ years as an organizing consultant is that organizing has something to do with everything!

Here's how organizing principles apply to the art of gardening:

"Half of any job is using the right tool!" (Note I said "using" - not "having!") It took a blister to convince me to buy a new pair of loppers to finish trimming the butterfly bushes. With the new tool, pruning was easy and painless nuskin.

"Today's mail is tomorrow's pile." While it's certainly important to clean up the trash, weeds, and other undesirables in your garden, if you limit yourself to that activity, you can work very hard and see little results. One of the things my landscape designer taught me was to pick one small area and plant beautiful things to inspire me to keep going. With Paper Tiger, we encourage you to start using Paper Tiger to organize your desktop - you can worry about all those old piles later! After you get the new system in place, you can incorporate the old files into the new system - and if you don't, they'll eventually be old enough that tossing them will be easy. In the meantime, you have what you need to do today's work, and you won't be creating new unidentified piles!

"Clutter is Postponed Decisions." One of the first steps in creating any rewarding garden is determining what kind of garden you want - vegetable, herb, cutting, perennial, etc. As great as all those options are, if you try to have all of them in the same space, the result will be disappointing. Or, to apply another Paper Tiger principle, "Put like items together!" Create a specific area in your garden for herbs, another for cut flowers, etc. In the same way, you can create separate "locations" in Paper Tiger for personal papers, active projects, CDs, clients, etc.

"Successful organizing begins with a vision." The most beautiful gardens are first planted in someone's mind! The initial question I ask every client is "If we were to meet three years from now, what has to happen for you to feel happy about your progress?" Their answers are varied, and include such statements as "I'll be making $100,000/year," or "I'll be taking six weeks of vacation every year," "I'll be working at home," or "I'll have a full-time assistant." If we don't have something to aim for, we'll never get there nuskin.

"Organizing doesn't have a 'right' or 'wrong.'" The most exciting aspect of my work is the "art of organizing." I frequently tell my clients, "You paint a picture for me of what you want to accomplish, and I'll help you create and sustain an environment to make that happen!" What works beautifully for one client would be a complete disaster for another.

"Organizing is a process not a destination." A garden, like organizing, is a continual process of reassessing what you like, what you don't, rearranging existing plants, and trying new varieties. And so it is with organizing! Continually asking three questions: "Does it work?'' "Do I like it?" "Does it work for the others I care about?" Be willing to take risks, don't worry about mistakes, and just keep learning nuskin!

Received an unexpected

I received an unexpected call from one of my bosses yesterday. It’s after work and I’d already headed home. As soon as I hung up the phone, I had an impulse to throw my cell away. But it’s imprudent and not economical, I gave it up.

Over the phone, my boss told me that he got a meeting at 10 am tomorrow morning and he needed his PPT ready before that. Thanks for the trust, but no thanks for the last minute call. I know I am good at writing, but I am not that good, right? The format and context were already fixed at the last meeting, but still it’s not like that I could conjure up all the data I needed by simply snapping my fingers. And the fact that it’s already off work didn’t help HKUE DSE.

I texted all the persons involved and asked for the information I needed. From now on, I would never complain about too many communication groups in my wetchat. Not surprisingly, some of them won’t arrive till tomorrow. Considering the fact that our company don’t have clock in and off system, I was left nothing to do but pray.

So, this morning was totally a chaos. I got up early, cut down my time with oral English practice, and left home a complete mess. Tension, that’s the only word I felt when I was preparing the PPT. Sadly, Tension didn’t quicken my speed, in fact it did the opposite. I made some mistakes and had to do it all over again. Any way I managed it at the last minute.

Believe it or not, my stomach actually twisted when I finished it. I craved my daily Coffee fix. So I decided to treat myself a cup of Starbucks. Grande, this time.
