Life is definitely UNFAIR

Life is definitely unfair. Nothing in this world is fair to us, you, me. This is very frustrating. Long life learning- do not ever get attach to people around you too much. Some people are just not worth for you to put your sincere heart in a friendship. Do you have a friend who you really like her/him, but they tend to hurt your feelings (by intentionally or unintentionally)? Yes i do have that kind of friend. There are times when they hurt you so bad, till you swear that you will never ever be too good to them again...however, somehow i always forgot what i have sweared b4 that and i will keep on making the same old mistakes again because forgiving is in me. It is because i really believe if i treat a friend sincerely, they will too. Many times incidents have proven my hypothesis as unacceptable and inaccurate, i guess my stubborn nature refuse to make the corrections. Do not get me wrong, i still have really helpful, loyal, long lasting friends. They really appreciate me for who i am and i am truly grateful for having them. But there are still some ''dark horses'' u know...that brings the downs in your life.

Approximately 3years ago, when i was having the most difficult time of my life, when my dad was admitted into hospital because his condition worsen. At that time, i was having a stayed over in my friend's house, ofcourse i felt very guilty for going there while my dad suffered so much. My friends knew that i was deeply sad and knew that they could not do anything to make my dad feel better. They went back to my house and spent their whole day with me trying their best to cheer me up. That was the time, i felt i am the most luckiest gal on Earth because of them. Just make it short, i do not hope for all those luxurious stuff by friends, i just need them to show me their pure hearts and really hold on tight in our friendships.

(PS: i know i tengah emo-ing....but somehow, i write better when i am emo.... *wink*)

Wesak Day

What is the significance of Wesak Day? Wesak day is the day when Gautama Buddha attained Enlightenment. That means he is free of rebirth, suffering and achieved true happiness. Buddha finally saw his previous lives up to thousand years before. Enlightenment can be attained through meditation. It is a very difficult thing to do and it takes years of practice. Whenever people were born into this world, they will have to go through rebirth, decay, old age, sickness, death. This cycle will continue hundred years, thousand of years...i do not know till when. People always ask us this question -''What is your purpose of life?'' Typical answers will be, ''i want to be successful in life, i want to earn a lot of money, I want to be the big boss, i want, i want and i want''.

However, from the Buddhist point of view, the purpose of life would be to put an end of suffering and the unsatisfactoriness. When i came to think bout it, people always fight for money, fight for power, fight for positions- are there any true purposes lying there? Sometimes i would just ponder to myself asking this question to myself -since i will be in this world for only temporary and i am not immortal, why do i have to long for all of the things i want in my life? Once i am dead, all those hard work and beads of sweat will be useless. At the same time, i am living in a materialistic world, without money and job i will not survive. I do not think i will be able to get the correct answer. I know there are still people who wonder why some ordinary people chose to be monks who willing to give up everything they have in life including their love ones. Because they do not want to get attach to them, one day they will leave this world. Everyone of us is attached to most of the things and people. This is why when people who are about to die, they could not let go. If only we can just let go of everything and understand the circle of life, then it will be easier to ''go''. Saying is just as easy as ABC, but to really understand it and to practice it, that will be the hardest thing to do. Sometimes i just hope that i could just understand these whole circle of life things.

Yearning for Zion

Yearning for Zion- heard that before? I just came across this yesterday during Oprah Winfrey show last night. Yearning for Zion is a community that has around 700 people , situated outside of Texas, United States of America. According to wikipedia, it is owned by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The residents there practice polygamy marriage and i was surprised, i guess the people out of that ''world'' were surprised to know that 3 wives sharing a husband get along very well. Unbelievable. Oprah interviewed some of the housewives by asking them whether they will argue when all of them in the kitchen cooking because at times they will have different views on things. They said whenever we know that we are not good in that particular things, we will try to change, make it better. The wives told Oprah that they never once entered in an argument. Indeed amusing to me. The ladies will usually get married in the age of 16, some 18 years old. Some girls chose to marry in the age of 15 too! When asked them whether they love their husband before marrying them, one of them just answered ''i know i will''. Marriage is arranged by the girls' parents and they girls usually trust their parents' choices. Whenever they encounter problems, they will just pray. Other than that, the girls must wear clothes which cover their whole bodies because according to them their bodies are very pure and need to be protected. Take a look at the pictures.

they even wear this outfit to swim....
