Slow down

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Today lifestlye is so complex.  It seems to be easy to live with lots of facilities, gadgets and service.  However, people are less happier than they were.  Sometimes, the question comes across whether those kinds of thing make life more complicated.  People’s mind becomes the slave of materials.  This era should be called “Materialisation”.

Have we ever thought that our mind is fresh and clearer in the past that we do not need to be contacted 24 hours by mobile phone and when we got the mail from the envelope we can have time to think about how to write back and allow time to the others to think about us.  I think e-mail is good that we can contact instantaneously but it kills the feeling of when you miss someone and looking forward to hear or feel it.  Also, digital camera is also another thing that I feel it takes us away on the time that we sit and open album and when we take some photo with our care and feeling.  It has gone.  You can take thousand photos as you like and it is on the memory card.  You may not get chance to open and see it and enjoy it as the photocard in the albums.

However, nowadays lifestyle has a good side but it is so quick and sometimes, it is better to slow thing down.  Do not live like putting food in microwave.  Spend time on it and be patient.  As when you use saltpipe, be patient and the result will come.  It is not a modern drug working in 5-10 mins but it is ancient remedy.  It takes time.
 

4th Allergy show and our world

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

The 13rd-15th of June will be our 4th times in
Allergy show.  We do not know what will happen this year.  We just
hope there will be quite a few people interested in our saltpipe.  During
the previous month, I have to thank you to Michael Van Stattren who is one of
the best health specialists recommending our Cisca Saltpipe through the Program
Talksport by Mike Mendoza.  It is a great help for us and lots of people
suffering from breathing problem.  I wish I can see him and say big THANK
to him.  Many customers obtaining the pipes and the feedback is they are
getting better.  Also, there were tragic news about natural disasters
happened in Asia.  The first country is Burma with the Nagis Cyclone


 

and the second one is in China, 
earthquake in Sechuan. 


With an increase of sale from the saltpipe
during that period, we manage to donate some money to help people over there. 
Even though, it may not be big money but at least with our donation, it is a
share among us, the seller and the buyers helping people who need help.  We
are all human and we should help if we can more or less.  It will be very
hard for both countries to reconstruct their own nation again.

From the disasters happened, we should learn
that now our world is getting to be more dangerous.  Because of people
destroy the world quite lot either direct or indirect.  There are several
things happened without warning so we must be careful and try to think how we
can contribute to our world.   Both tragedies were sad and both have
the same ending that lots of people died, some got injuries and some lost the
love one. 

So, the most important thing for us, we are
survive and we live and we have time to live more.  What can we do to help
the other that we will never sorry about being human.

What is Success?

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

Life is full with success and failure.  One question comes across is what success is which on the other hand we must answer along with this question is what failure is.  In general, success is the judgement that we build up the goal and trying to achieve it and failure is when we cannot make it.

However, if we look in the the concept of success, we achieve the goal set whether it is real success.  Acutally, there is no success but rather the satisfaction of what we set up the target in the mind and unsatisfaction on what we cannot achieve.  Success of one person can be the failure of another.  For example, the gold medal of Olympic winner is the failure of person who get silver, bronze or achieve nothing.  In business, success may means lots of profits.  Is it true success?  Does success actually mean happiness?

Can we live without success?  Yes we can but the first thing we have to see clear is that success does not mean best achievement or being millionare.   Success does not mean winning against the losers.  However, if we change the word success to satisfaction to our own capability, it makes much more sense.  If we do not win but we are happy for the whole performance on what we did and feel happy for people who do better than us.  In my view, the real success is no feeling of success or unsuccess.  It is neutral but feel good about the thing what we have done.
