A Note Of Awareness ...

My Bubble: Have I Come To The End Of The Road?

I am so grateful that my blog has been growing steadily. The page views have slowly but surely ballooned to almost 40000 hits today ... something I had never imagined at the time I wrote my first blog post in 2008.

Anyhow, my page rank still sits at PR3. I just don't know what I have not done enough. I am still picking up tips and learning the curves from some webhosting news I received regularly. Hopefully they can help bring my blog to the next level.

I have often read that it is a far better advantage to get my blog onto those self-hosting platforms rather than to remain on a 3rd-party publishing platform. No doubt, 3rd-party hosting is free and fairly straight-forward, undeniably I know my blog is merely borrowing space on their server. Most alarming to me is that after all the efforts I’ve put into my blog, they actually have ownership over it and I don’t know how long before I will outlive the welcome on their server.

I am really worried since I’ve been facing problem updating my blog the whole morning. I kept getting this error message “BAD REQUEST ERROR 400”. I’ve cleared my cookies and caches and restarted both my computer and modem several times. Yet, the error still prevails.

Is it time that I consider signing up for a self-hosting platform? I am still very undecided and hope this “BAD REQUEST ERROR 400” message does not mean that I have come to the end of my road on their server.

My Bubble: The Big C!

First we had gone to a department that takes our hard-earned money from us as we dutifully fulfills a citizen's responsibility. Then lo kong and I dropped into the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) office in the afternoon where the government borrows our hard-earned money with little returns. We had wanted to update some personal information that could not be done online and to get the latest statements of whatever we have left in the account.

It was a Monday and the morning had started with a much welcomed rain. Unfortunately, it had caused traffic jams on almost every route we had taken to finish our errands for the day. Despite a frustrating day so far plus the unforeseen delays, we finally entered into the car-park of the EPF building in Petaling Jaya.

Behold! We drove smack into another traffic jam within the car park. The driver of a maroon proton perdana was adamant for a parking lot where the reversing driver was facing a hard time trying to reverse out as the proton perdana was blocking his or her way. Obviously, there's no way for the proton perdana to reverse since there are cars lined up behind her ... oh yes, it was a no-brainer lady driver. A fifty-something lady who spoiled the reputation of all competent lady drivers out there!

Luckily, another car further ahead left the parking and the proton perdana quickly sped into the lot as if anyone else could grab it from her ... geeezzzzzz!!!

Anyway, the jam cleared and we headed to the counter, took our queue number and waited. I had noticed the same proton perdana driver was waiting for her turn too. Soon, my number was called and we proceeded to the indicated counter. Suddenly she approached the same counter as us and said she had missed her queue. The officer-in-charge politely told her to wait but she had the cheek to add that she wouldn't mind waiting after us if we were not going to take too long because she's in a hurry. Hello lady!!!

How I wished I could tell her off in the same sort of way that Laura Linney did in The Big C ... "Sorry, I'm a little pressed for time too. I have cancer!"

My Bubble: What's With These People?!!!

They asked us to fulfill our responsibilities as a responsible citizen so that they can take money away from us. Then plastered all over their offices is their slogan to provide their service with a smile.

Good for them but they just needed a few bad old apples to really spoil their lot and their long-running effort to provide a better delivery system!

Lo kong and I went to the Income Tax Department yesterday morning to submit the CKHT form for the purchase of a small office lot. It was supposedly a very simple thing to do ... submitting a set of completed forms to fulfill our responsibility. We could have allowed our lawyer to do it on our behalf but why pay an exhorbitant amount (RM400) for such a simple task which she probably wouldn't incur any costs anyway (you see, there's this thing call runners and bulk submissions). Even after all the wild goose chase we went through, it still didn't cost us any more than RM40! Maybe it is a slight loss of our time but why should we condone such 'daylight robbery' if we can put up with a little hardship to do it for ourselves.

Anyway, back to the civil servants helming the counters at the Income Tax Department. First of all, our lawyer (mind you, we paid her for all her services) failed to let us know that the forms can only be submitted at the Jalan Duta office (to spite us? your guess is as good as mine). We went to the Income Tax Shah Alam office since it is so much nearer to home, queue for almost an hour only to be told that we were at the wrong office. The counter officer verified the documents and politely told us that it should be submitted to their office at Block 11 in Jalan Duta.

By the time we rush to the other location, it was already 5 minutes to 12 and we crossed our fingers hoping the counter will remain open throughout lunch-time. It did and there was only one officer on duty with only one customer who's on his way out. Upon hearing the word 'CKHT' and without verifying our forms, she immediately direct us to Block 8A which by then is already closed for lunch. We had to hang around for almost an hour before being allowed into that office. The 2 counter staff had the typical infamous attitude tagged on the public services. There were only one other customer waiting there and they still asked us to wait while they go about chit-chatting between them (I understand Malay very well and by the way, haven't you two gossiped enough over lunch-break?). No queue numbers were in practice and when more people started coming in, they were not happy when lo kong told them we only wanted to submit our CKHT forms. One of them finally checked our forms and rudely told us to submit at Block 11. When lo kong informed them that we were in fact been instructed to submit to them by the former counter, they became agitated and defensive. What's with these people?!!!

Hello! We are the victims of your poor delivery system and you are getting agitated before we do ... what the heck!!! Don't they realised we are the tax-payers paying their salaries?!

With a whole lot of patience, we finally managed to submit the documents to a different counter in Block 11 and thank the Lord, the lady officer who attended to us was polite and helpful. Perseverance finally paid off!

Just a note to the people who are afraid to be put through such poor delivery by the public servants, there are calculative lawyers like mine who will not hesitate to charge you unreasonably while the Government uses tax-payers' money to keep these bad apples in employment.


Just Laughs: Liver And Cheese

Three handsome male dogs are walking down the street when they see a beautiful, enticing, female Poodle.

The three male dogs fall all over themselves in an effort to be the one to reach her first, but end up arriving in front of her at the same time.

The males are speechless before her beauty, slobbering on themselves and hoping for just a glance from her in return.

Aware of her charms and her obvious effect on the three suitors, she decides to be kind and tells them, "The first one who can use the words 'liver' and 'cheese' together in an imaginative, intelligent sentence can go out with me."

The sturdy, muscular black Lab speaks up quickly and says, "I love liver and cheese."

"Oh, how childish," said the Poodle, "That shows no imagination or intelligence whatsoever."

She turns to the tall, shiny Golden Retriever and says "How well can you do?"

"Um. I HATE liver and cheese," blurts the Golden Retriever.

"My, my," said the Poodle, "I guess it's hopeless. That's just as dumb as the Lab's sentence."

She then turns to the last of the three dogs and says, "How about you, little guy?"

The last of the three, tiny in stature but big in fame and finesse, is the Taco Bell Chihuahua.

He gives her a smile, a sly wink, turns to the Golden Retriever and the Lab and says....

Liver alone. Cheese mine.

My Bubble: Maintaining My Sanity By Being Heard

Being retired definitely has its perks! I am enjoying the freedom and serenity in my life each day. However, retirement may not necessarily meant a bed of roses all the time. It requires adjustments, retuning the mind & body to adapt to a slower pace in life.

Having been in the workforce for almost two-and-a-half decade, there are occupational habits that really need time & patience to break. The daily fast-paced maneurvers at multitasking in the office, the daily rush through peak-hour traffic and the stress of dealing with the multi-faceted complex characters at work ... first and foremost, the boss ... have created an operating system in the body that just cannot shutdown.

After more than a year's retreat from the workforce, the mind has calmed and the body relaxed. I've begun to understand my purpose in life alittle more. My clarity allows me a better focus on my direction towards my future. Meanwhile, in order to maintain my sanity as I continue with my struggle with the learning curves of life, I need to express myself and be heard. That is why I chose to be heard on;

Blogger ~ where I share my believe, lessons and experiences in the Law of Attraction.

Facebook ~ where I socialise with old and new acquaintances who add colors to my solitude.

Twitter ~ where I tweet every thought that crossed my mind and every sigh to clear my lungs.

To all my friends in the blogosphere as well as the facebook and twitter networks, you certainly rock my world and keep me alive!

"Living is the constant adjustment of thought to life and life to thought, in such a way that we are always growing, always experiencing new things in the old and old things in the new. Thus, life is always new." ~ Thomas Merton

Law Of Attraction: Don’t Let Our Imaginations Go To Waste

According to Albert Einstein, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

So how are we treating our imaginations? Many of us accept imagination as some sort of personal entertainment, something that does not warrant seriousness. Well, there is absolutely nothing wrong to think that way. However, the downside of it is that we are letting all those imaginations, no matter how trivial or impossible it may seem to go to waste.

Everyone is born with the gift of imagination, the ability to create mental images, scenes, objects or events that do not exist at the present moment, past or future. Everyone uses it in their daily life whether consciously or otherwise. Some are a bit more creative than others but nonetheless, it allows all of us to experience a favored life inside our mind.

Again, many may not have realized that imagination does have an important role in the law of attraction. We need the help of our imagination to visualize the opportunities that we want to attract into our life. This creative power opens the door to limitless possibilities that awaits us because in accordance with the workings of the law of attraction, what we imagine with a strong belief and feelings will come into being.

Although imagination allows us to create a past, present or future that’s vivid and real, let’s not be confused between imagination and what some non-believers of the law of attraction may accused us of doing which is daydreaming. They may work in similar ways but there’s a big difference between the two. Just as imagination does, daydreaming can deliver the emotional satisfaction but as they are just temporary satisfaction, they become wishful thinking that is not really connected to our real desires. We are not focused and we do not take the thoughts seriously. These thoughts subsequently drifts away to be replaced by other wishful thoughts later.

Instead when we control our imagination and use it efficiently with the law of attraction, we become focused and passionate about our desires. We become connected with them and are prepared to embrace the changes and challenges that accompany the manifested opportunities along the way. We feel strongly and have faith in our imagination to willingly invest in all the necessary efforts to bring our imagination of our future into being. This is where the inspired actions take over.

Controlling our imagination would mean that we should think only in the positive manner about what we want in the future or our immediate future. We do not want to attract situations, events or people that we least desire into our life by letting negative thoughts to invade our imaginations. Lacking an understanding of the real power of our imagination will be an unfortunate waste of our God-given capability. Learning to use it correctly and putting it to practice with the law of attraction will help to bring clarity in our focus and will certainly draw us nearer to our real desires, not to mention happiness and a personal satisfaction.

My Poem: I Will Try

Just Laughs: All You Can Drink

A man walks into a bar, sits down on a bench and orders a cold one. He swigs down the beer, looks in his pocket, cringes and orders another. He gulps down that one, looks in his pocket again, cringes and orders yet another one. This goes on for at least an hour and a half.

Finally the bartender, bursting with curiosity, says, "I know it's none of my business buddy, but I have to ask. Why the whole "drink, look in pocket, cringe and order another one" routine?"

"Well," slurred the man, "There's a picture of my wife in my pocket. When she starts to look good, then it's time for me to go home."

My Bubble: Women Are Condemning Their Own Kind

I would like to try and keep my bubbles in the positive mode at most time but sometimes when you read about the going-ons in your neighborhood, community or country, you just can’t help but spit fire from your mouth!

There have been much said that women are their very own worst enemy but of late, the controversial Obedient Wives Club that was set up by a group of overzealous women just takes the cake. After so much had been fought for women to have equal rights and fairness from the men, this club just blasted the fight more than a century into the past. And worst, they equate themselves and all married women to a first-class prostitute!

Wow! In the first place, how do they know what defines a first-class prostitute? I am curious.

The laughable plot of this controversial club is that their members are mostly wives in polygamous marriages and yet they dare admonish other women about keeping their husbands from straying. Mind you, these are not women who lives in a cave but well-educated not locally but overseas. It wouldn’t be much of a surprise to think that our government would probably have sponsored them to study abroad in the first place. Another waste of tax-payers’ hard-earned money!

What has gone wrong in the minds of these women? Are they trying to legitimatize their own desires to be prostitutes and a high-class one at that, by hiding behind the facade of the so-called ‘obedient wives’ club?

Married men will stray and married women will stray too! So, if we are going to confine that all these infidelities happened only because of insatiable sex in a marriage, then should there be an ‘Obedient Hubbies Club’? Should the men become a first-class Gigolo to ensure their wives do not stray?

Is this what the marriage institution is made of?

What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Another week passes with plenty to be grateful for. Here's my random list of gratitude for the week:

1. I'm grateful for strength inspired by friends in the blogosphere and on facebook.
2. I'm grateful for the inspired actions that has garnered some positive results.
3. I'm grateful for the peace and tranquility in my daily pursuits.
4. I'm grateful for the opportunities that have been laid before me.
5. I'm so grateful for a new-found connection with a loved one and I'm so happy to see the growing maturity before my eyes.

Gracious God, in the busy-ness of my day, 
I sometimes forget to stop to thank you for all that is good in my life.
My blessings are many and my heart is filled with gratefulness for the gift of living, 
for the ability to love and be loved, 
for the opportunity to see the everyday wonders of creation, 
for sleep and water, for a mind that thinks and a body that feels.
I thank you too, 
for those things in my life that are less than I would hope them to be. 
Things that seem challenging, unfair, or difficult. 
When my heart feels stretched and empty, 
and pools of tears form in my weary eyes, 
still I rejoice that you are as near to me as my next breath 
and that in the midst of turbulence, 
I am growing and learning.
In the silence of my soul, 
I thank you most of all for your unconditional and eternal love.

Just Laughs: A Fart Smeller or A Smart Feller

There's a woman that has a big problem when it came to farting. She farts all the time, yet is never be able to smell or hear them. So one day she decides to go to the doctor about the problem. She tells him how she is always leaving these long, hard farts that she can never smell or hear.

The doctor thinks about it and sends her home with some pills, telling her to come back a week later. When she comes back to his office, she tells him how she still is having these horrible farts, but now they smell like rotting eggs.

The doctor's only reaction to this was... "It's good to know we cleared up your sinuses. Now to work on your hearing...."

Law Of Attraction: Narrow Our Focus For Effective Control

The law of attraction is at work all the time and rules our daily life as we attract everything that we are experiencing day in day out. In order to understand the true workings of this law, we must first realize that we do not or better said, we cannot control how the Universe orchestrate and deliver our experiences. However, it is a relief to know that we do have the control to manage and direct our energy through our intentions and thoughts to influence the type of experiences coming from the Universe.

In order to direct the law of attraction to work in our favor, it is vitally important to coordinate our intentions, thoughts and energies with clarity of mind. We must have a clear picture of what we want to create and experience in our life. One of the tools of the law of attraction is the vision board. It allows us a constant focus for our thoughts and creates the mental pictures in our mind. These mental pictures are helpful in elevating our belief in our intentions and boost our emotions. This in turn charges up our energy positively as we place our personal order to the Universe.

The key to the law of attraction is that we attract what we focus most of our energy on most of the time. However, sometimes we might just bite off more than we can chew. We have too many intentions and ended up confusing our thoughts and energy. We are not able to focus effectively and efficiently. After the longest time, what we want doesn’t seem to appear and we claim that the law of attraction doesn’t work!

Work patiently … Rome wasn’t built in a day. We have to minimize the items in our mental pictures to narrow our focus. It will be more manageable and we will be able to concentrate more energy on them.

Ensuring that the law of attraction works for us is pretty much like planting a garden. We need to decide what kind of garden and plants we want before we start planting. Too often, we get excited and plant far too many types that resulted in over-crowding as well as high maintenance. It is important to note that we can expand as we learn. After we have planted the seeds, the garden will require our constant attention and nurturing to grow in order to achieve our desired garden.

Likewise, the law of attraction requires the same kind of planning, attention and nurturing in order to manifest our desired experiences. We must be able to nurture each intention by focusing on them with a lot of our least divided time and energy including all the necessary actions to weed out any negative influences that challenge us as we reprogram ourselves and our thoughts. We are only human and are subject to ups and downs. Our constant focus helps us to be more alert to these challenges and react accordingly.

Working with the law of attraction is not about waiting passively for things to happen. Resting on our laurels and waiting for the magic to happen is just impossible for the Universe to deliver to us what we want. It requires commitment, perseverance and actions. Being focused drives us to be more committed and control our efforts positively as we transform the way we think, feel and act. These enhancements in us will subsequently turn us into a human magnet to attract what our mental pictures into reality.

My Bubble: Expelling The Painful Clutters

Most of us will do some sort of spring-cleaning to our homes every now and then. Sometimes we are forced into it to de-congest and sometimes we do it willingly. Many a times while we spring-clean, we will find things that we are just unwilling to throw out despite the fact that they are no longer needed or they have become unusable. Perhaps it is because of their sentimental values or the memories they carry.

Sorting out the clutter in our personal life can be equally tough, if not harder and chances are these memories are not necessarily positive ones. They haunt us with all the negative vibes that do not make life any easier for us at all. Getting rid of these old associations can put us in a great place to move on with our life and be surrounded by positive energy.

So why do we still hold on to bad memories? If you could, would you take some pills just to forget parts of your past or do you think that your memories (both good and bad) make you who you are?

The anecdotal pills may sound fast and easy but I think it would not be my choice because bad memories are the ones that make us stronger and in the end we appreciate it more when good things happen to us.

Knowing and advocating what should be does knock some sense into me but yet it is still a struggle each day to expel those painful clutters. I guess I am only human ... the journey continues.

What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that we receive. Gratitude is a powerful energy within us that attracts abundance and happiness. The more sincere state of gratitude we achieve, we resonate higher positive vibes that puts us in harmony with the Universe.

So let's turn our gratitude into a magnetic force that draws positive energies into our life. A weekly gratitude practice would make a good start for that inner transformation.

1. I am grateful for the constant insights that seem to pop out of anything anytime to nudge me forward towards my pursuits of living positively.

2. I am grateful for the resilience when I am down and the vigor to stride ahead when I've picked myself up.

3. I am grateful to see the proofs of positive changes unfolding in front of me each day.

"Life becomes religious whenever we make it so: 
when some new light is seen, when some deeper appreciation is felt, 
when some larger outlook is gained, when some nobler purpose is formed, 
when some task is well done."

Law Of Attraction: Let’s Breakout From Our Dream World!

The ancient Toltec society advocates that mankind lives in a world of dreams. Every one of us live our very own personal dream and together with everyone else, our collective dreams then create a bigger dream that the Toltecs called “the dream of the planet”. When I first read about the dream of the planet as described by Don Miguel Ruiz in his book “The Four Agreements”, I immediately likened this dream-state world to The Matrix, the 1999 science fiction-action movie that starred the hunky Keanu Reeves.

The dream of the planet is the reality that we are living in each day where we are domesticated just like how we domesticate our pets. We are trained to evolve in a pre-designed mindset carried on through generations, from our forefathers to our fathers and then to us. We are mentally and physically conditioned and judged by pre-set rules and expectations by our parents, mates, kins, employers and even our peers in order preserve our evolution. This was initially a bit far-fetched for me to accept.

However, as I engaged myself into their explanation, I begin to realize the similarity of the Toltecs’ conviction actually meets the beliefs of the law of attraction. The Toltecs believe that everything in our world whether material or ethereal are energies governed by the Universe. We need courage to break ourselves out of this dream … a dream where we are suppressed from our true potential due to pre-existing agreements we have entered into at birth which is not by our own choice.

The Four Agreements is all about replacing these agreements that will bring us out of the dream state to live in a new reality where we live as our true self … where we are able to thinking and decide what is right and wrong for us , where we are responsible for our own happiness. It is a good read and a delivery of the cosmic law of attraction explained from a different angle.

My Bubble: Have Trigger Finger Will Travel!

The last time I wrote about my trigger finger, I just had a steroid jab to my middle-finger. It was in October last year and by now I have certainly surpassed the 6-months relapse possibility.

Unfortunately ... unfortunately ... unfortunately, I've got the trigger finger again but this time round it is on my ring-finger.  Geez ... it travels!  I know the specialist's going to advise me to stave-off my comp or stay off the mouse.  How can?!!!

I am addicted to the internet ... blogging, twittering, facebooking and googling.  I don't think I'd survive a day without the comp, just as I can't survive the day without my cuppa sugar-free white coffee.  This is my world and it is pretty exciting with what you find online over the net ... the news, the knowledge, the inspiration and the new people you meet.

It is funny come to think of it ... the human body is so much like that of a car.  As it depreciates over the years, no matter how much we take care of its body ... the washes, the polishing or even the repaint job ... internally the parts still wears off.

My schoolmates are planning for a bash to celebrate our "Big-Five-O" in about one-and-a-half years' time (oh yes, I am that old) and I loved to share this funny take on aging from one of the gals ...

@Lilian Chong:  "Hi why are you talking about the BIG 5 - I haven't aged since I hit know the 18 - 22 concept...well when I reach 41, I automatically become 18 and stayed 18 for next 10 years or so like I am living in Planet Pluto or something so I guess I will hit 50 in next few hundred years or so.....sigh sigh...this is what we call...DENIAL....sigh.....I feel old when I walk up the stairs and my knees start to sound "creak" really "creak" up the stairs!!"

Be strong enough to at least try to make your life better.

Be confident enough that you won't settle for a compromise just to get by.

Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight that should lead the way.

2.  I am so grateful for the ups and downs I've experienced that have become the building blocks that strengthen me in my personal journey.
3.  I am so grateful for the spiritual growth that the Lord has instilled in me.

to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it,
to spend years in silent hurt wondering
if something could have materialized - never knowing."

Law Of Attraction: Wake Up and Create Something

It's time for the "mainstream" to WAKE UP. The alarm clock is ringing, they keep hitting snooze, and in the meantime, the life they could be living is passing them by.

Day after day, millions of people go through their lives wishing and hoping and dreaming that things could be better, with absolutely no knowledge that it is they themselves that perpetuate their own dissatisfaction.

It is not the "gifted few" who create their realities. It's not just for those in the metaphysical community. It is all of us. Every single one. However, there are a few who have awakened to this knowledge, and make creating their reality a daily event...manifesting whatever it is they want in their life with seemingly no effort!

Meanwhile the rest of the world looks on in wonder and disbelief. They assume that these "fortunate few" are among the cosmically lucky.

To be honest, the whole thing generates some anger in me. The problem is that we are "dumbed down" by society throughout our whole lives under the pretense that we are actually being intellectualized. The "scholarly" tell us that metaphysical topics like reality creation are pure fantasy. Science insists on measurable evidence of everything before it will acknowledge such claims as fact.

However, it's really not that difficult to comprehend. Even the most skeptical people should be able to grasp a few simple concepts like:
  • Everything in the Universe is composed of Energy, including you and me. Even our thoughts are Energy.
  • Through Energy, everything in the Universe is connected.
  • The Universe creates without effort, and in abundance. Just look around you. Trees, rocks, air, planets, etc. all were created without stress, effort, or over-analyzation. The Force you choose to believe initiated the creative process doesn't matter. They are all there and were created effortlessly.
  • You ARE a part of the Universe and through the power of thought, have the same creative power that manifests everything you see. The only thing that limits your potential is your own belief system!
Everything that occurs in your life is interpreted BY YOU. You add the meaning, you add the emotional response, you add EVERYTHING. It is your thoughts that literally take the energy "data" and transpose it into your reality. What you consider "real" is nothing more than an agreement that you've made with yourself (and no doubt many others in some cases).

This is how our reality has been shaped. This is how we have learned what is possible, and what is impossible. We learned it from OTHER PEOPLE. The problem is, these other people (family and friends perhaps?) have their OWN limiting belief systems which they ALSO consider "real".

So human limitations spread like a virus, and we don't even realize what's happening.

As discouraging as this is, many of us ARE waking up. I personally feel it my sacred duty to shake people out of this "intellectual trance" that limits them and show them what is truly possible.

So what IS the difference between those who cruise through life in a seemingly perpetual state of bliss, with everything they want coming to them with no effort, and the rest of the population working at jobs they hate for the sake of doing the "responsible" thing, hoping that SOME DAY they can live the lives they hope for?

The difference is that these people know their purpose, know WHY they absolutely HAVE to fulfill that purpose, and commit themselves to never stopping until they realize their dream. They may or may not have thrown the accepted definition of "responsibility" out the window. The only thing that matters ultimately is that they now live lives they love, following their passions.

You see it is our PASSIONS in life that tell us precisely what we are to do. When we follow our passions, our life lights up. We give off incredibly powerful energy which attracts our desires to us. That means people, money, objects, careers...whatever we want that is in line with our purpose. The Universe WANTS to provide those things we want most. It is only our own limiting belief systems that stop fulfillment from occurring.
