是是但但

從來也不覺得周年回顧有用,是是但但的跟同事談了。如果不是老闆要獨立見他們,可能更“是但”。

《家家春秋》

這也想,同樣有七五折。

歸零

一個人要常常有歸零的想法,才有進步的原動力,有了歸零的想法,才能掏空自己一些不合時宜的偏見,也能重新接納新的領域和視野,拓展自己人生的境界。

這理念,很是喜愛。

魚生

準時走人,本沒有打算回家吃飯,想吃魚生,那麼就跟家人一起吃。跑了去平價可很多人光顧的店。一大盤,二百五十不到。帶子很美味。

笑死人

嚴厲指責我們啊(說什麼死線已過,不能做)!可是轉過頭,她的同事來問我們可以不可以處理某事情。她不懂做人的。

Stupid

Just know to wait for other to give something that the person can directly access to.

MPF

Finally the figure is positive.

想幫她啊

終於,被人話了。說的是她。提醒她什麼地方有問題,好心沒有好報。不過,我會繼續主動幫助她的,因為我愛看綠燈。

明明可以改善,礙於一些自尊,浪費。

這麼多年來,愛的就是程序重組,好好玩的。

Sushi

Sushi lunch again, today ate 7 plates (HK$171). Finally I find the loved one.

吃了一些沒有吃過的,有魴鮄、秋刀、沙咀天婦羅、鹽魚背,鹽帶子好味道。

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Sushi

Go to a little bit expensive one, HK$148.5 (5 plates). Eat different kinds of fish but cannot remember the taste :(

The one I like most is fired egg roll, juicy.

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

就是知道

很喜歡這種“就是知道”的肯定。不是巧合,不是猜測。很實在的。

Monday, July 27, 2009

小女孩

她還是嚷著不要肥。告訴她我知道為何只她的肚子凸凸而手腳沒有肥的跡象,因為不願意上廁所(她剛剛去了方便,著她看看肚子扁了)。九點多要媽媽給她小蛋糕,又告訴她我知道為何她的肚子凸凸了,就是吃了飯還吃。

嘻嘻!嘮叨姨媽再見她的時候會和她跟進的了。

三色飯

有魚生啦牛肉啦饅魚啦,HKD108 + 10%。發了達似的(午餐免費)。

回家前還買了小的無糖少冰珍珠奶茶,嘻!

Energy In

"By first engaging your muscles and drawing your energy in, you'll be strong in the outward expression, reaching far beyond your perceived boundaries or limitations," says Desiree Rumbaugh, an Anusara teacher based in Scottsdale, Arizona, who created this sequence. "Even if you can't get into the full pose today, the variation allows you to taste the richness and freedom that happen when you infuse an asana with your energy. "

滿意自己很重要的,full pose 不full pose 一點也不重要。

有些學員很努力地做,可老師說他們是關先生關小姐(臉紅紅)。

課堂體驗

原來一隻手舉高再做tree,難些的。
做triangle 時,大腿內側的筋很扯(不太知道如何改善這裡)。
warrior I,被老師發現前腿可以坐得更低。
老師說,課堂是令我們跟身體好好接觸。
child,差不多可以好好擁抱自己。
老師說不要模仿。

無糖奶茶

看同事每天一杯,也來試試。沒有糖(想少奶,可沒有),可珍珠有甜味。還是喜歡咖啡的味道。

坦白

很自在,原因是每天都過著坦坦白白的生活,連工作上也不需要作假。

國學

國學讓我知道,要從真誠出發,讓自己的生命內外一致,要注意與他人溝通,同時要遵守社會規范。我是在學了國學以后,才懂得如何‘做人’的。

總是覺得,這部分的中國,很美。

自由,是否什麼也由自己“話事”???!!!

書展

朋友說有票著我去書展(步行五分鐘就到),人多的地方不想去。很久也沒有逛書店了,沒有什麼好看。

書還有看,是我午飯時的等吃伴侶啊!

現在看的是《現在,很想見你》,作者市川拓司。主角是一對父子。

想得到,先付出

小小年紀,已經出國不知道多少次了,出入私家車(乘過公共交通沒有?!)。週末的活動是上高爾夫班,可是卻要他明白蟹是不可以說吃就吃。

不知道朋友會如何做,不過,好矛盾就是了。一時一樣,怎教導孩子??!!

去錯咗

一心想到新店吃串燒,可是走錯了門口,選了壽司(又吃,嘻!)。到街上望望,原來串燒店在對面,可是沒有開門。

別話:一大塊的肉看到也不想吃了,吃方面,選擇是少了。現在最喜歡的是鮮蔬菜,有晚真的到了Sogo 想買一包二包蔬菜回家做晚餐,可是價錢不便宜啊!

Balance

It is a cosmic principle that we either live in imbalance or act to create balance. Though we may be comfortable in imbalance (which we often perceive as balance), we cannot grow in such a state. It is through shining light on that which we are not—our opposite—that we illuminate the road to progress.

28 May 09

做不同的事情沒有幫助,是用不同的角度去看同一事情。

生日快樂

其實,沒有情感的。不過記得,就寫一寫。

拉麵

午餐才三十八(一碗麵加三隻煎餃子),吃到的蟹柳卻不是平價雪藏貨,有鮮味的。

Mula Bandha

In Sanskrit, "mula" means root; "bandha" means a lock or binding. Not only physically but also in more subtle ways, mula bandha is a technique for containing and channeling the energy associated with the mula-dhara ("root place") chakra. Located at the tip of the spine, muladhara chakra represents the stage of consciousness where basic survival needs dominate.

"Mula" also refers to the root of all action, and the root of any action is a thought. As we begin to refine our thoughts—restricting and binding the intentions behind our actions—the actions themselves become refined. In yoga practice we bind our body and mind, restricting our impulses into the orderly channels of ethics, individual responsibility, and right action.

所以說,什麼都是由脊椎盤骨開始。錯不了。

練習時,身體有跟我對話就是做對了。不需要想的。

This increases the stability of the pelvis, and, since the pelvis is the seat of the spine, its stability creates a safe environment for spinal movement.

We never let bad talk take the place of good speech; we never allow wrong action to replace right action; we seek out good company and avoid bad company.

When we restrain our outward gaze to enhance the unitive vision of yoga, we open the third eye, the eye of insight.

用固有的眼光,怎能看出一個新世界???!!!

Instead of continuously focusing on differences, we begin to perceive inner sameness.

We learn to use more and more refined means to move effortlessly toward the goal that is yoga—contacting not just Uranus but the whole cosmos.

好有目的

做人太有目的就什麼也沒有。
有目的有方法,效果不同。

朋友說要禪修,相信他有他的目的。可是禪修的基本是願意放下,沒有,如何修???!!!

活動日誌

老師沒有來,病了。
由小朋友來帶領,還可以。學員們自動做沒有著他們做的事(因為他們不知道做了多少次相同的了)。他們學了還能表現出來。
一個年過六十的,蹲了下來,比誰人還低。
又到畫畫時間,他們越畫越多。

跟同事說著他們,心裡的動力就來了。他們可以,自己一定可以。

沒有擔戴

發覺,那些沒有擔戴的人,問他們事情總是愛把別人搬出來的。說事實就可以,不需要一個故事。

別人要退款給我們,要我們填表格,弄了好一些時間了,問同事銀碼是多少,不知道。故事是繼續的,可事實什麼也沒有發生過。

隔山問路

可以直接對話的卻不肯,事情出錯了是他們更正的。為何還有這麼多這樣的人???!!!

能做的,就是為同事除去一些無謂的出錯陷阱。

問我“想點”

一年的假期安排,同事問我想怎樣。沒有怎樣的。他們想怎樣就怎樣,一個人放假,影響不大。從來也不會為這些小事情而說上一句話。

凱撒沙律

開始尋找好吃的。到Sogo 看看,原來這沙律用的菜並不便宜,怪不得餐牌上的價錢並不低。

今天本想“散叫”,可是價錢過一百啊!七折後比套餐還貴。

Coffee

1 can and 2 cups, during breakfast, lunch and dinner :P

雀巢的罐裝特濃咖啡幾好喝。

Thursday, July 23, 2009

這是今天的晚餐(HK$76 + 10%)。冷烏冬好味道。

這個星期,已經不知道吃了多少次日本餐了。

星期一:午餐 - 跟今晚的一樣,不過沒有烏冬(HK$88 less 30% + 10%)。晚餐 - 野菜拉麵加兩串素串燒 (HK$67 + 10%)。
星期二:午餐,中茶點心(免費)。晚餐 – 壽司定食 (HK$55 + 10%)。
星期三:午餐,意粉薄餅(HK$94 including service charges)。晚餐,豬肉濱海 (HK$46)。
今天的午餐是石頭鍋飯 (HK$58)。

Life

"To be more gentle with myself," she says, and "to cooperatively work together to address conflict in a peaceful way—as a high-energy, driven personality type, those have been years-long lessons.

課堂體驗

老師沒有來,是C 小姐來代課。

從downward facing dog 到cobra/upward dog,導師說手腳一撐,做到啊!

班上來了男生,他的腳背不可以放到地面上去啊!留意他的背,不能挺直。

因為有新學員,導師的速度慢慢來。我就用做yin yoga 的心態來做,一樣的。不喜歡快的。

downward facing dog 時的背伸展得不好是知道的,刻意把腳跟嘗試碰地,意外地背伸展多一點。

rolling,居然可以坐起來。

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

回來了嗎

不知道老師回來了嗎?因天氣關係,影響了道路,他們被關在青川。

對老師來說,這一段經歷,一定為他的創作添力量。

20 Jul 09

老師傳我短訊,問我明晚會否出現;也告訴他病了。

還沒有看短訊前,跟同事說不知道他會否病。惡劣的天氣下,又要照顧其他人,不病才怪。

Monday, July 20, 2009

冰釀咖啡

遲到了,到七仔買了這咖啡(HK$8.9)。

Saturday, July 18, 2009

Focus Point

"If we try to force the mind to stay focused," explains Khentrul Lodr" Thaye Rinpoche, a Tibetan meditation instructor, "we can end up feeling disturbed by our meditation. If we're too relaxed, we risk becoming drowsy and falling into mental dullness. The right amount of tension is just enough for us to hold on to the focus point, but no more: not too loose, not too tight."

能到達那一點,就知道是對的了。沒有懷疑的。

不知道怎樣如何,不好只想著結果就行了。

The entire process requires awareness, attention to detail, and a certain level of detachment: in short, a commitment to balance.

活動日誌

過去的兩個星期,都有參與活動。老師不在,很不同的。自己就少了一份投入。
可學員們就活躍了些,不過每個星期都不同的。
剛跳過中國舞,很不美啊!
他們很是知道要做什麼的。我一到,某學員就拿起溫度計,打算幫我量體溫。
他們有很多事情想跟人溝通,可我聽不明白。

拿著七折券,想著一個人一定有位的(差不多一點了),沒有啊!走了去吃自選套餐,有任選六件壽司、卷物或手卷、任選三款熱食,餐裡已經有湯、沙律和甜品(還有任吃的酸薑)。即是有十二件東西,才HK$62 加一。

Maybe No.8

If that's the case, then no yoga class :(

有味道的菜

說的是生吃時有天然味道的蔬菜,近來喜歡吃(不喜歡的人說是草青味道)。

Thursday, July 16, 2009

自己講完就走開

很是討厭。我講你呀!其實他知道不知道自己很無聊。

每天的中午都聽到一聲“碰”。

回來了

某天用了五百多跟同事吃飯,錢回來了 :)

地理

工作很好,可以讓我們學習地理。今天認識了Kashi 和Kashgar,同一個地方來的。

The Only One

We are the only one to get all the green lights :)

Sky

Took it yesterday after lunch.

很喜歡“一舊舊”的雲。

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

聽回來的

午飯時聽回來的。說去旅行,第一日已經depress,因為想著幾天後要工作。好慘!

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

有舍才有得,只有學會取捨才能得到更多。所以適當退讓、學會放棄更是一種智慧。其實合理的退讓是一種灑脫,是一門學問;適當的放棄是一種豁達,是一種人生的領悟。

朋友說不好再不工作啊!為何不?!不工作,一定有別的可以做。跟著老師周圍跑,也不錯。好想看著一個舞臺表演的誕生。那裡的生命力可能性,好吸引。

換人

老闆又問我這問題了,答應了這個星期回覆。

今天同事又請病假,看了一些她處理的工作,好失望。

學了

今天跟同事認真地說,我可以寫一本關於辦公室政治的書。

別人的加害,造就了一個學習好機會。感恩。

Awareness

According to traditional yogic psychology, discernment is a quality of the buddhi, a Sanskrit word that is sometimes translated as "intellect" but that really refers to the higher mind, the seeing instrument that our inner Self uses to observe the play of our inner world and make decisions about what is and is not of value. Discernment is an awareness, often wordless, a clear insight that is prior to thoughts and emotions.

Friend always said he wanted intellect. Go to awareness first.

Judgment and blame, on the other hand, are products of the ahamkara, usually called the ego, that part of the psyche that identifies "me" with the body, personality, and opinions.

Very Good

Received a call from one of the countries and the first thing the guy said to me was that HK had a very good figure.

Don't know where he knew about it.

Less than one year and we have made it :) Is it hard? Not really. We are on track. To maintain it should be no problem but need consistence. It is a daily task, no excuse.

Monday, July 13, 2009

一個幾毫

那一個幾毫好緊要嗎(還說給回我數千元)?廢話來的,手提都沒有接的話,怎會是直線。都不太接聽電話的,說在公司裡。

不是你有空,別人就要做你想做的。

認識

所謂“欲知人,先知己”,若不認識自己,只想了解別人,是本末倒置,也是很痛苦的事。想認識自己,就要反觀自心,一定要多用心!

好好笑

剛剛看到一電郵,某專業人士說不被尊重,說我們沒有把他放到cc list 裡。怎敢寫電郵給他呀???!!!未被人黑臉過嗎?!基本上他的臉天天都是“黑”的。

他的感覺絕對是正確的,我們不尊重他是事實。

如果他真的需要我們通告他,禮貌一點說下次辦,不就好嗎?!

校友

有人做了我校友,第一志願來的。

Finance vs System Support

朋友跟我說某accounting manager 對系統的認識,可以做system support。他都傻的,有finance 不好做做support???!!!

要做都是做system design & development。

幾天 vs 五年

某人跟我說他學了,真的嗎?沒有話好說。

吃得開心又滿足。

中午是魚生飯(直到沒有七折就不吃了),晚上吃了柚子沙律(HK$45)和半打串燒(HK$42)。感覺好像出差時的悠閒。

推這,全日有九折(以上價錢是原價),飲品買一送一。這樣的價錢,坐得舒服。

基本上,中飯是吃得貴了,可到的地方都是有折或是不需要加一(不是茶餐廳)。

道家管理

感覺自己是偏向這邊的。

告訴朋友同事跟老闆的對談,她問要老闆簽名不是我做的嗎?為何是我?同事願意老闆又不介意,這是最好的。

在這裡也寫了很多,大事由同事去做,我在後面做準備工夫就好。

朋友問那麼同事懂做我做的,我說會的;不過統籌的工作他們就不能了。明白朋友的提問,她是說教識徒弟沒師傅。我是不相信這些的。

走了去吃鯖魚。想到有咖啡喝的一間,要等。到了另一間,不需要加一。都可以。

電話響起

睡夢中,電話響起來。是誰打來的呢?是他嗎?不知道。看著網頁,航班可能延誤了。在想,路經香港,電話不來一個算了,來一個訊息報平安也好;或者上網來聊聊天。可能他的電腦沒有連接Wi-Fi 吧!

6:31 pm 開始登機了。

把很多很多有關資料告訴他,可他就是這樣(其實一早打定輸數的了)。做人好像他,個人感覺是悲哀。祝他旅途愉快!

6:54 pm 起飛。

朋友的原因

問朋友為何不再練習,她說停止在某階段。問她想要什麼,她說減肥。沒話說,出發點是這樣,什麼也不好說。

她問我有沒有動作做不到,為何沒有。反問她,做不到又如何。

只做動作,不理會身體,這不是yoga。

Meditation

You've no doubt had moments in your life when you were not thinking or analyzing your experience, but simply "going with the flow." In these moments, there was no past or future, no separation between you and what was happening. That is the essence of meditation.

很多時候都在這狀態的。

Meditative awareness is not an intellectual exercise, but it brings a clarity that lays bare the workings of your mind.

Ultimately no meditation practice is going to work unless you like doing it. This piece of wisdom comes from no less an authority than Patanjali's Yoga Sutra, a text so fundamental that every yogic tradition in India makes it the basis for meditation practice.

不明所以

有些人,總要令自己生活不好過。不能明白。

都是源於比較出事的。最令人不能理解的是,不是蘋果跟蘋果的比較,而是跟不一樣的事情混為一談。

Saturday, July 11, 2009

蛋撻

知道星記有咖啡蛋撻已經有一段日子,可是要到中環。某天在公司附近看到,當然買來一試。十塊一個,當然不貴(以星記的標準來算)。

那晚,店員居然用盒子盛一個蛋撻給我。我說給我袋子就可以,於是他找袋子盛盒子。我說要紙袋就好,他說不怕弄碎蛋撻嗎?我說我立即吃的。

薄餅

好想吃Wildfire 的薄餅,拉了同事一起(當然是我給錢)。要了黑森林(餅面有些大力水手菠菜),只是HK$125(某些原因有八折),比某集團還便宜。

還想吃

今晚吃日本串燒,可吃得不滿足,只吃了露筍豬肉卷、芝士年糕、銀杏、牛舌、飯團和沙律。朋友怕熱氣,也沒有辦法。下次找同道中人一起吃。或者自己吃一百九十的套餐也不錯。

生吃的椰菜好好味道。

多好的說法

「需要的」父母付錢,「想要的」你自己付。

抗拒改變

提議一個自動的方法,可同事不接受,因為要她跟別的部門聯絡。好,我來做。 愚蠢的做法,接受不來。

9 Jul 09

原來我提議的,已經在某系統裡存在了。

這個同事,真的有問題。她用全capital letters 寫電郵給我。不介意她的行為,希望不好是什麼情緒病就好了。

這個同事,對自己沒有信心,對他人也沒有信心。只會說不好,但又不會跟你說要怎樣做。連半日工都說我們自己想好流程再告訴他們。

做決定

跟同事說每天裡沒有多大時間做決定,因為沒有決定要做。怎樣做如何做,自然地走出來的。在他們眼裡,每天我做了很多的決定。

Tension

As you do the poses, use your face to measure tension in your body. Ryder calls the face "the dashboard of the pranic system." In other words, when your face is tight, your body is too, which limits the flow of prana.

朋友說這說那,根本是多餘的。看看面部表情吧!

年糕餃子

這相片是差不多吃完了湯裡的年糕時拍的,來的時候有四隻餃子,好大只,要分四口吃。

越來越喜歡這(這星期去了兩次),好的是他們會不斷為食客加茶。

《紅玫瑰與白玫瑰》

喜愛的場地,最便宜的票也看得開心。

石頭鍋飯

除了日本餐,就是吃韓國餐。今天吃了石頭鍋飯,好好味道。喜歡的還有六小碟。一人六碟,一人坐大大的卡位,好開心。

帶著一本書,看看看,不怕一個人等飯吃。

In & Out

In and out can be happened for just a few mins. but colleague needs us to have a control log which may spend more time on that.

Two sources two process, standardize them the fine.

Before doing extra, would like to have process review and change first.

小人

One reason is that 2 colleagues from the team wanted to become a full time trainer. So I checked with the manager about it as I have not seen any full time training position.

著朋友不好再做這般的事,他不明白。很簡單,為何要為同事問這些??!!沒事做嗎?做好自己才說其他吧!

現在的經濟環境,不被人炒已經很好了,還說有沒有不存在的職位。朋友自己想想,有這必要嗎?!

很多事宜,不好問也不用問。

Career in your own hand.

要求

But when dealing with the team, it will be in English. These colleagues from China does not use English in their daily job, so getting them to be fluent in English will take sometime.

想朋友看清楚,這是否一個合理的要求。人工便宜得可憐,要中英並行。

Vitamin

"trust and confidence" (in the rightness of what you're doing and in the sympathy of the divine), "firm conviction" (which is free of doubt), "positive attitude" (even in the face of momentary setbacks), "acceptance" (of traditional teachings and the words of your teacher), and "sweet hope" in the ultimate success of your practice.

Monday, July 6, 2009

靜靜的地方

本來想著吃日本飯(又日本,嘻!下午已經吃過),可是要等位,於是走到這裡。沒有太多的人,坐得好舒服。

Source

Further checked, the source is from the enquiry side. Why keep on to ask me???!!!

Actually there are only 2 sources, not from our team then is the other. Simple and straight forward.

Another funny request is asking me to forward a screen shot which the system can be accessed by the requester.

I am tired with them but I like the job.

4 Jul 09

Same issue from another person. They like to waste my time I don't mind but please better to understand what's the source.

開始逢星期四上午放假(不過今個月只可以安排兩次)。

零食

近期愛吃。那天在Sogo 見減價,買了試試,一吃喜歡。後來到別的店,價錢一樣(HK$7.9)。

喜歡看

喜歡看,因為越能做的越多。向內走向外走,總有原因的。

跟弟弟一樣

說的是網上寵物的名字,是上了天堂的狗狗。

Your Flip Flops Say You're Relaxed


You are super laid back and peaceful. Not much disturbs you.

You're content with what you have in life, and you can't stand feeling worked up.

A lot of good things tend to come your way in life...

You're not too busy or stressed to let an opportunity pass you by.

Your ideal warm weather place: Hawaii


You Are Highly Inspiring


You believe that your life has a higher purpose, and you do all you can to achieve it.

You are wise, and a lot of your wisdom comes from self discipline.

You try to live as moderately and modestly as possible.

You make room for rational, small indulgences... while living as ethically as you can.

好多,其實好少

看來看去,還不是一個字“alignment”。真的萬分喜愛它。

Alignment

Like the alignment of asanas, the karanas are based on the center line of the body in relation to gravity and include not only placement of the body but also attention to the pathways of energies that flow through the body.

Contentment

"contentment," being satisfied with the resources at hand and not desiring more.

Self-denial will backfire. "Don't say to yourself, 'I'm not going to have this or that.' Instead of focusing on what you're denying yourself, focus on what's really healthy or, in this case, on whatever gives you true satisfaction.

Choice

"You are free to choose to align or misalign—yoga is not about being nonjudgmental but about becoming adept at making judgments," Brooks says. The overarching belief is that by aligning ourselves with the divine flow of Grace, we can bring that Grace to others in our relationships, our communities, and the world.

"three A's": attitude, alignment, and action.

the yogi uses action (the natural flow of energy in the body) to express his or her attitude (the power of the heart) through the alignment of the body (mindful awareness of how its parts are integrated and connected). The beauty of each asana is expressed not just in the form but in the attitude that moves the student from the inside out.

align 不到嗎?可能是沒有準備好,也可能是態度問題。自己一定知道的。不知道嗎?肯定是關於態度了。

align 到了,是不需要看行動的結果,一定沒有問題的。態度是自家事宜,別人可以幫助的只有alignment。行動的後果,自己負責。

剛睡醒

那一刻,把雙腿向上伸直然後左轉。這告訴了什麼?靈活。很喜歡lying twist 的動作。

相似

簡簡單單的,找到相似(其實是偶然),已經開心。

遊戲如生活

玩遊戲也像生活,喜歡種植(現實裡不種植的,做這個因為有價值),不喜歡買貴的東西。

另,朋友送了一具鋼琴給我,還有燈。

是OA 做的

就是態度,輕視工作,於是常出錯。工作也掉了。細細的事情,我願意做,因為是多麼的重要。

大事情,讓同事去做。從來也不覺得報表的重要性,要看直接看系統裡的。他們有他們做,我有我看,不是看同事怎樣做。

開會嗎?最好不去。很多事情,一兩句話已經可以解決了。如果人家不合作,開會也沒用。或者,是工作的性質,常聯絡的都不會有機會見面。

當環境不全面的時候,技巧能力就在這建立了。

也是常說的一句“總有原因的”。

回應

刺激和回應之間,仍然有空間存在。在這片空間里,我們有自由、有力量,去選擇如何回應。在我們的回應當中,蘊藏著成長和自由。

就像呼吸練習,停頓。

很多時候,跟同事說的是“不用理會”。情緒的東西,真的不好理會。明明知道是人家寫英文的表達能力有問題,還需要反應嗎?明明知道人家沒有改變的意願,靜待機會好了。

包容

修持佛法的根本,不是要讓佛庇護一個人,讓他沒有煩惱,而是要讓他懂得,生在世俗,煩惱是不可能不找到府來的,但是,是有方法消除的。直到見煩惱如不見,有煩惱如沒有,這樣的境界,才是佛的境界。

這樣的境界怎麼得來呢?就要求我們心的世界要足夠包容,不要對一點點小事斤斤計較,也不要將人生的目標僅僅盯在眼前的一點點上。這樣,我們就會明白,苦難、痛苦、逆境、都是要來的,都是避免不了的,而它們也是必然要走的,這是最簡單的因果。那麼,我們還為痛苦的來臨而恐懼嗎?如果我們可以自己排除這種恐懼,我們的眼睛就可以看得更遠,更遠處,也依然沒有苦難。那麼,這樣的人生,不就是一路快樂的人生嗎?

“心大”的人不是沒有煩惱,忘掉煩惱不等於沒有煩惱,而心中有世界的人也不是沒煩惱,只是他懂得快樂。

滿屋都是人都可以說沒有人幫忙,是真的沒有人還是自己的心小。開心不開心,在於自己。

Toes Lift

老師沒有特別說這個,是我留意他怎樣學回來的。能夠把腳趾提起再壓下去,可以站得堅穩一些。

source of the picture

什麼也沒有

When one soul serves another, there's no need to give advice or lift up or heal. But along with that comes a certain acceptance of the status quo. "I think we all want to fix, because it gives us a sense of control over something we have no control over," says Gail Straub, author of The Rhythm of Compassion: Caring for Self, Connecting with Society (Tuttle, 2000). "I think it's healthier and more sustainable to serve with the idea that I can't eliminate that suffering. It's a Hindu and Buddhist idea that there will always be immense suffering in the world around me. What I can do is offer my kindness, knowing that I'm not going to solve anything."

星期三的活動就是這樣的,只想把事做好。不是去拿東西也不是給東西別人,大家都輕輕的。

某天同事一見到我就說我的皮膚白了,我說什麼也沒有做。莫非是穿了紫色?!

Life

It’s not about what we expect from life, but what life expects from us. Let me repeat this: “what life expects from us.” This requires us to take responsibility and find the right answers to life’s problems and do what is necessary to address them.

這樣的態度,生活過得一定好。

同事做錯了,我會做的是想想有什麼的工具可以令他們避免錯誤。要他們多留心是沒用的。總是相信,沒有人會特意出錯。

如果是關於時間性的,會把死線推前,每一個行動完了同事都要通知我,於是利用提前了的時間來補漏。兩次三次,習慣就能形成。

Roll the Whole Arm

This is a very good exercise to stretch the whole arm. There are many forms we can do it (in front of the torso or raise them over the head). But bear in mind not to force it. Make sure whatever to roll, it is smooth and feeling flexible.

Source of the picture

Gravity

Plank as an invaluable preparation for Handstand because it lets you get used to bearing weight through your wrists and elbows, it can help you learn to keep your arms and shoulders buoyant instead of jamming down onto your wrists and upper arm bones, and it teaches you "to work your abdominal muscles against gravity and use your body as an integrated whole."

"Core strength comes from continuity between the navel, spine, pelvic floor, and inner legs; in standing poses, for instance, you must wake up the lower half of your body in order to lengthen the upper body."

Understand where to start is so important. It is so enjoyable to lengthen the body while walking or standing, even sitting or lying.

Experience telling me if the upper body is lengthen, in return it strengthens the legs.

Think To Be

Friend said it is a surprise to find out the leg is not straight. Yoga is life and life is yoga. How you think in yoga practise really reflects how you act in daily file.

He is a person never frank to himself and likes to make dream. It is why. What's fact and what's imagine, mixed.

連續三餐

都是日本餐,嘻!價錢是HK$35(拉麵)、HK$50(牛肉飯) 和免費(燒花魚)。

Dinner

Plan to spend HK$1k to treat a meal to team :)

You Cannot Don't Expect Others Can

Friend needs the staff to perform without any error by just 2 shadowing. Something I told him more than 10 times and still cannot remember. How he can expect others to be a "perfect" guy.

On the other hand, cheap labour is liked that. We need to tolerate the errors.

He is so unrealistic. Make me think of ex-boss.

Destructive

"In Buddhist philosophy, guilt and shame are considered very destructive," says Kelly McGonigal, who teaches yoga and is a research psychologist at Stanford University. "These emotions may consume us, but they don't do any good for the suffering of the other person."

Joy

In fact, the word "joy" may be a stretch for people who long simply to not be miserable! Those who find "joy" awkward might prefer another word, like "contentment," "delight," "happiness," or "aliveness." When I use the word "joy," I often think of it simply as a feeling of well-being.

Truly happy people are not happy all the time. The 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows, to use the Taoist phrase, are part of the full tapestry of life. Being joyful does not mean you stop feeling the full range of human emotion. Life is often hard. You get disappointed. A loved one becomes ill or dies. You feel stress in your relationships, finances, or crowded schedule.

喜歡yoga,就是喜歡它的包容性。什麼的狀態,就做適當的。多自由。

一年下來

一年了,熱情還在,可以玩的還很多。同事呢?可能被請走,她真的沒了心機。基本的東西沒了,幫也幫不了。

我是一個不會說推動的人,做我就教,學會了就是屬於自己。不想學嗎?走。整個小組只一人沒有表現,純是個人問題。這些,我是不理的。

分享

A sweet life is a shared experience.

每天都在生活,怎會沒事分享的呢?!

明明是洗不乾淨的油卻跟我說是咖啡油,換過的一杯看不見油。

看看別人,看看自己

看看別人的好與壞,再看看自己,就知道知足。
看看自己,再看看別人不好的時候,有點氣憤,總是想為何他們不活得好一點,只要他們願意,就是這一點點。
再看看別人的不好,看看自己,更加知道要珍惜。

這樣,過得很快樂。

送給他的

you want resolution, not victory. Don't drag in the past events that have been settled or shelved long ago.

Take care to avoid involving other people or circumstances, no matter how relevant they may appear to be at the moment. Such tactics are invariably cheap means of scoring points. They inevitably complicate issues, make solutions that much more difficult, and further dent relationships.
《Making Friends》

好想好想把這頁書複印給她。不過因為她是害神經病的﹐不知道何時發作﹐都是在這裡意義上給了她比較好。

題目改為送給他。老闆要他出差去建立關係,看到的就是這“cheap” 的方法。

《Take Me Home》

This is a moonlit night
the foundation is silent
water glitters in the moonlight
even if we don't have a common ground
we can still talk all night long...
afterwards, you didn't change your views and neither did I
but we have known each other better

that's what communication means...

22 Jul 06

小組的相處,有點這樣。

我們的世界

Our beliefs define our territory, we argue for it and we won't step outside it.
we think it is reality. Actually, it's just want we believe.
"Should" beliefs don't help us because reality doesn't understand "should".Things are the way they are. When you criticise reality, reality wins.
《Follow Your Heart》

我覺得世界是沒有界限的,限制只是自己帶來。

29 Jul 06

很少用上should 這個字,看情況嗎!

就是被人這麼說著了

不看書,不敢看書,甚至恥於看書,這種城市性格側面地突顯了很多人都詬病過的另一種傾向﹕反智,而且是很字面意義上的反智,我們反對任何有智慧的人和事。腦子只要稍微轉得複雜一點,就是深奧,就是沉悶。

看到這一段,真的感到可怕了。其實我已經開始肯定就是這樣,只是不願意去相信,不過看來不相信也不可能。那麼,往後工作的日子要怎樣面對呢?要好好想一想,因為用現在的態度並不是長遠打算,就算是一年的時間,怕也熬不過。

慎思!

真情對話(騙自己最愚蠢),事情也改變再改變了。

過程

我們需要很多的問號,不對別人,而是對自己。把問號一個一個變成句號的過程,就是一種進步。句號越來越多,就能讓自己對自己更加確定,進而肯定。這些問號,很多都是要從欣賞開始的。學會欣賞,就是學會對自己的省思。

由問號到句號,需要的當然是時間,也需要毅力。得到的是一定比付出的多,我會努力儲存我的句號。

30 Jul 06

還是喜歡這樣的,只問自己。

最經典的,就是由驚嘆號好好的畫上一個句號。只是一年的時間。

安心

了解自己的才能,知道自己所處的因緣、時間、環境,是不是我應該做、能夠做的?能夠清楚自己、了解自己,也就是了解因緣,便能在工作中安心。

不求心安但安心。前者是效果,求不得;後者是行動,可自主。

生活

泰戈爾在《飛鳥集》中寫道:“休息之隸屬於工作,正如眼瞼之隸屬於眼睛。”不會休息的人不會工作,更不會生活。

Union

Learning to trust, communicate clearly, and give and receive are some of the main emotional benefits of AcroYoga. "It's not a substitute for solo practice but an expansion," says Sauer-Klein. "When you are able to give and receive completely, it brings up what yoga is all about—union." Adds Nemer, "You become joyfully connected to each other, which spreads into the community and spreads peace."

Original

Friend told me he doesn't have the original letter to apply China visa. There is courier and one day can send document from China to Malaysia.

Like a Machine

Friend being commented like a machine. 100% agree. To care other person really no need time, just a few words can do.

We are very busy but busy for what. I am doing thing but I am not busy.

Friend can say busy with flight schedule. Really want to know how busy this task will be. There are not so many flights to choose.

Manage

To manage is to manage the task but not the message. Lately found out alot of people just forwarding the message and meant to handle the issue.

Never come back a solution but emails back and forth.

If people don't mind I talk to them direct (no matter they know me or not), thing becomes easier.

How & How

I need an action but other team keep on telling me she don't know how to do. She should have the access right and it is just a press of a button. Ok! I did it. However she kept on saying it might violate policy.

It is how not why and cannot. Copied to boss and explain the situation then fine.

Hyper

I am so hyper. Feeling so content now.

Have a final check for work done, it is better than expected. A very good closing for the year :)

Pina Bausch

She died :(

還記得她在香港的最後作品。

What's the Point

Friend told that the MD said one day only worked for 5 to 6 hours (meant stay in office). I asked whether we could do the same. If cannot, what's the point of the MD's saying.

Sure he can come and leave not according to office hours. How's about the genearl staff???!!!

Error

A colleague came and said we made an error. I asked her what's the issue. She talked about payment but my team didn't handle this.
