I realized that I’ve been slacking lately to blog. I guess there isn’t much interesting things in my life to blog about. Well, I am sort of “domesticated” to a certain degree now and I am pretty sure nobody wants to read more about my mulberry tree. Haha! I’ve come to a point where I think “Been there, done that”. But I know, there are lots of things in the world I haven’t experience for myself, but I lack motivation now to do anything. Perhaps, waiting for the right time. Am thinking of whether to totally abandoning this blog but I guess I need to keep this just for personal journal sake.
So I am starting a segment called “Short Bytes”. It’s going to be something like twitter, just that the messages are probably 5x much longer. Also similar like random notes – just that this one comes one at a time.
Short Byte #1
I think most of my friends are pretty spiritual now. Ann is listening to Dharma Talks by Ajahn Brahm.My other friends in Singapore are attending churches even more religiously now and you could see their Facebook statuses spewing with the Lord’s message. A friend who had recently adopted a child is now contemplating how to raise his child – the Buddhist way, or Catholic. Another friend just gotten baptized and just last Sunday, her son was baptized in the same church as she was. If you notice, I didn’t say “religious”, I mentioned spiritual – because, Buddhism is not a religion. It’s an education and a way of life.
As for myself, I drift in between that two – Buddhism and Christianity. At times of needs, I find myself scurrying to kneel and pray earnestly. I tried my best not to create complications or conflicts in my everyday life. I guess it is somehow damn difficult.
A friend suggested that, most of us turn to religion/God because of the dire state of our country. We are just too sick of the politicians running the country that we need divine intervention!
I guess whatever spirits or gods we pray to, we just hope one thing. Peace.
Sometimes, I always wonder, why people want so much money when they can’t even carry with them to the grave. Or if they want to leave their children a legacy – is it worth it to be making money out of people’s misery? (Not apply to all – only certain people lah!).
PS. I noticed I am still very long winded!
