汤小妹妹才学了一堂的书法课,就踊跃参赛了

这个三月初,我受了戴桂珠女士的邀请,为庚寅年春暖人间、家家贴春联的挥春比赛摄影。这个活动是在马六甲的皇冠百利广场举行、也是由马来西亚国际现代书画联盟马六甲联委会主办,孔教会、逸品轩、普耳茶艺文化馆与马六甲皇冠百利广场协办。

当天、我见识到来自马六甲与外坡的书法家,还有很多大大小小的参赛者。当比赛开始时,个个参赛者都全神贯注的写字,丝毫也不松懈。更无法想象的是,小小年纪的参赛者们,都写了不同的字体如魏碑、楷书、行书、草书等等,参赛的作品可与大人的字媲美,真是后生可畏。

在参赛者们交上作品后,人人都有机会见识到我国有名的书法家现场挥毫。这些挥毫作品也作现场义卖,筹到的款项会捐给圣约翰洗肾中心,帮助患有肾脏病的患者提供廉价的洗肾服务。

以下是现场所拍摄的照片:

弓起身子的鳝鱼

烹鳝 (by 丰子恺)

烹鳝 (by 丰子恺)

在中国古代,有一位读书人名叫周豫。他最爱吃的是鳝鱼,并且很善于做清炖鳝鱼汤。他做汤的方法是先将鱼放入锅中,里面放进去足够的水。这样鱼还会在里面游着。然后就在锅底下用小火缓缓加热,水温慢慢升高,鳝鱼在水中不会感觉到水温的变化,这样不久之后就被煮熟了。这也是周豫过人的厨艺所在。据说用这种方式煮熟的鳝鱼,味道非常鲜美,因为鳝鱼不知道将被杀掉,也不会挣扎,所以它的肉质也就不会紧绷,相对地口感自然好上很多。

有一天,朋友给他送来了几条鳝鱼。刚巧这一天周豫也没什么要紧事做,于是亲自动手,试试自己久未展露的手艺,煮上一锅鱼汤来尝尝。

一锅汤慢慢煮沸了,周豫将锅盖掀起来一看,却发现了一个奇怪的现象锅中有一条鳝鱼的身子竟然向上弓起,只留头部跟尾巴在煮沸的汤水之中。这条身体弓起的鳝鱼,整个腹部都向上弯了起来,露在沸汤之外,直到死了,身体依然保持弯起的形状而不倒下。周豫感到十分好奇,便将这条形状奇特的鳝鱼捞出汤中,将鳝鱼弯起的腹部剖开,想要弄明白它为什么要将腹部弯起。在剖开的鳝鱼腹中,周豫惊奇地发现,那里竟藏着数不清的满满的鱼卵。

原来这条鳝鱼为了保护肚子里的鱼卵,情愿将自己的头尾浸入沸汤之中,直至死亡,却把肚子弯起,那样就可以保护自己的孩子,好让它们避免滚热的汤水。周豫看到这一幕,泪水禁不住流了下来,他呆呆地站了很久:鳝鱼犹舍命护子,自己对母亲,却于孝道有愧。从此以后,周豫终身不吃鳝鱼,并对母亲加倍地孝顺。

Discover how your consciousness affects your health, your environment and mother earth

Japanese author, Masaru Emoto (江本勝)

Water has a very important message for us. Water is telling us to take a much deeper look at our selves. When we do look at our selves through the mirror of water, the message becomes amazingly, crystal, clear. We know that human life is directly connected to the quality of our water, both within and all around us.

The photographs and information in this article reflect the work of Masaru Emoto, a creative and visionary Japanese researcher Mr. Emoto has published an important book, “The Message from Water” from the findings of his worldwide research

If you have any doubt that your thoughts affect everything in, and around you, the information and photographs that are presented here, taken from the book of his published results, will change your mind and alter your beliefs, profoundly.

Mr. Emoto and colleagues decided to see how thoughts and words affected the formation of untreated, distilled, water crystals, using words typed onto paper by a word processor and taped on glass bottles overnight. The same procedure was performed using the names of deceased persons. The waters were then frozen and photographed.

Heavy metal music You make me sick, I will kill you
Adolph Hitler Thank You
Love and appreciation Mother Teresa

These photographs show the incredible reflections of water, as alive and highly responsive to every one of our emotions and thoughts.

Masaru Emotos extraordinary work is an awesome display, and powerful tool, that can change our perceptions of ourselves and the world we live in, forever. We now have profound evidence that we can positively heal and transform ourselves and our planet by the thoughts we choose to think and the ways in which we put those thoughts into.

放下镜子里的自己

By | Life Journal | 5 Comments

放下自己,然后向前迈进

原先今天的自己很不开心。
不知道为了什么事,不知道她是为了什么骂我。在这公司两年了,两年她都不曾让我好过;也就是说两年里我自己学会公司里的东西,放下自我戴上面具,然后学习。今早,同样的事再次发生了。

爸也像平时那样forward email给我。而这一次的email也让我好了很多。心里有了甜甜的欢喜… 我想爸一定不知道,他帮我换了名字过后,我比以前坚强多了。

给她的话:
你做的东西,未必人家都会认同,也不是,所有的东西都是你对而已。
请你放下你现在的自己,然后再去了解别人,
你会从中发现,这世界和人物都是漂亮的。
