Mind labels with perception

In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.
Our life is the creation of our mind.
The Buddha

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
Shakespeare

看不清楚是因为戴了有色眼镜(perception).
So how does perception begin to form in our mind?

Daniel Gilbert 在 Stumbling on Happiness 书中提到, 验究显示因为我们有 memory (we remember how we felt)所以才会有perception. We perceive things as we think they are. When we are doing this, the brain gets information from memory (past experience), visual perception (present experience) and visual imagination(prospection).

越说越觉得跟 Paticca Samuppada 有关...

It's time 是时候了

前几天父亲节打电话回家时, 察觉老爸老了, 而我长得很大了。
退休后的他,生活素质下降了。时间都花在睡午觉及看电视。

当时是这样想的, 是时候我来当爸爸的爸爸了。
It's time for me to be my father's father and my mother's mother wholeheartedly and unconditionally.

首先,催他去换副眼镜。 看得清楚是很重要的!呵呵
再来,鼓励他在家门前空地种些小菜。
然后,让他帮我跑点腿。
。。。

要记住的是, 我不是要改造他, 只是要帮他再次的找到自己。
老爸, 接招吧。

Happiness

Happiness arises from the timely company of friends.
Happiness arises from having few needs.
Happiness arises from accumulated virtue at life's end.
Happiness arises from seeing beyond suffering.

Success vs Value

Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.
~ Albert Einstein ~

A man of value is a man of success. How true it is?

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude to get what he desires.
~ Thomas Jefferson ~

Hibernating ...

想冬眠,因为觉得我又在迷失于花花世界里了。
让我静静的, 一个人再次的找到平衡点。

生活,不过如此吧。
呵呵
跌倒了,再爬起。
迷路了,再走过。
做错了,再改过。
没什么大不了的。

想冬眠,也可能是因为现在是冬天吧。
低温让人懒洋洋的。
冬天,是我想家的季节。:)
还好,还有个家让我想。 哈哈哈

Who can give you the peace of mind?
Answer: Yourself

Koala - Phascolarctos cinereus



Ajahn Kalyano said koala represents 'metta',my Buddhist name, that's why people like to hug kaola.

So... I'm a koala.

No wonder I enjoy hugging and sleeping so much. :)
