Girls, the other day we talked about studying overseas, in some of those good universities. And I remember one of you asked why is it better.

Well, mummy and daddy studied in local university. And it’s quite hard for me to explain to you now.

But let me share this with you this. Come and read it again when you are older, and may be by that time, you are able to comprehend why.

I like this sharing by Ajahn Brahm about “Living Meaningfully and Dying Joyfully” http://www.dhammatalks.net/Books6/Ajahn_Brahm_Living_Meaningfully_Dying_Joyfully.htm (thanks SC for sharing this with me)

It’s quite long, but worth reading.

I like the story he told about pursuing happiness.

livingmeaningfully

That is what happens when we simply believe others, rather than seeing the truth for ourselves. If you live your life pursuing possessions, accumulating attachments, even hurrying after heaven – you will discover that you are not living meaningfully.

I burst out laughing when reading the line “When I die, then I’ll be happy”. hahaha…  Ya, instead of saying 活在当下, I should say "乐"在当下.

放下

今天听到最令我兴慰的话:

“是的!我也是有孩子,我是对自己说:如果我长命又怎样,孩子都有他的命运!所以我是把握时间,把我体会的智慧用在孩子身上,让他遇到问题时懂得自救!就算上天要我去报道了,我都不会放不下!”

谢谢您,Maggie 师姐

I admire and respect this mother a lot. A lot to learn from her. Keeping her message here (I couldn’t agree more), sharing with my daughters as well. Actually it’s good for parents as well.
