Song for Coronavirus Fight

The news of Corona virus outbreak happened in WuHan, we were shocked as billions of Chinese in China on how fast it was quickly spreading and deadly threats from this unknown virus. It rages the world by its powerful speed and deadly threats that we never though it can spread so fast and cause so much fear and panic with the jumping numbers of infection and fatalities in the world.

Today international medias also recognized the early announcement of “lockdown” guidelines that our government issued effective on 13/03/2020 helped to save thousands of live. In the past, when we talk about globalization, we talk about impacts from the world changes, however, we have never thought about one day we will face for what are happening right now that we can’t shake hands, no hugging or kissing as basic social greeting; the normal retail market operations and live styles will be setting onto a paused status.

Earth shaking news and rumors constantly mentioned on TV, radio and internet, but the bottom line questions we face are: What is that all about? What should I do? How should I face and handle the new way of living?

A 55 years old Belgian music composer, Filip Bauters, a father of three great children and four happy grandchildren, who studied music at the Ghent conservatory and has been busy with music all his life everyday shares the same stressful worries as many people that we all try to process the current Coronavirus situation in our own way, decided to compose a music and to share the song for the Coronavirus fight with the world.

When Alice asked me would I be interesting to cooperate with Filip who composed a melody which he would like to have in different language, of course includes Chinese, so people around the world could share the message of solidarity through a song. Without hesitation, I immediately said ‘Yes” to this meaningful project.

It is not so easy to translate the original Dutch text to Chinese, I can only do my best to grasp the essence messages for unity that Filip would like to express by considering the melody flow. This is such fun and meaningful project that I look forwards to other language version on the #youtube soon.

Hope the monster will yield soon

Here I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Filip Bauters again for giving me this opportunity to participate this beautiful and meaningful project .

Drinking tea correctly

We still don’t know the original source of #Coronavirus, but we do start to have more information about this tiny evil monster that it targets people whose immunity is not top regardless age and this deadly virus can cause live threatening complex problems.

Before medical and medicine research scientists can develop effective medicines and vaccines, the only things we can do are

  • Following the guidelines for #socialdistancing,
  • Maintaining balanced and healthy diets,
  • Paying extra attention on hygienic care
  • Learning and adapting new social behaviors,
  • Remaining calm and positive energy
  • Every detail helps to strengthen the immunity system.

Here under is my response to a marketing email from a tea supplier today:

Yes, there are plenty health benefits from tea. The medical effects on immunity system in this COVID-19 pandemic situation becomes more interesting and important. However, as a responsible tea person, I choose to be more cautious to give bold suggestions without solid facts and research data. 

People who want to profit health benefits from teas, must consider the basic 5W1H: Who, Which, What, When, Where, and How. 

Tea Research Scientists of University in Zhejiang and Yunnan started the further research in tea since the virus outbreak happened in WuHan, so far the result from testings of EGCG is very encouraging. 

Hopefully we will soon will have more concrete research facts and results.  Till then enjoy a cup of pure quality specialty tea that matches with your health conditions and requirements.

The Future Is Not a Dream

The future is not a dream, as long as

We work hard when we must

We are doing our best to fulfil our responsibilities and obligations to self, to family and to society;

When we are willing to appreciate for what we have and able to keep our heads up when we can.

Then dreams that we have for the future will eventually realized, step by step.

我們的未來不是一個夢, 衹要我們能夠持續的努力,盡好自己應盡的責任,只耍我們能夠及時的表達我們對生命,對家庭,對社會應有的尊重以及責任,那麽未來的夢一定能夠逐步的實現。

Sharing a lovely Chinese song with my family and all friends

“My Future is not a dream”
sang by Zhang YuSheng

Inspiration from the song:

Are you alike me, keeping head down under the heating sun, working hard silently and sweat?

Are you alike me, busy with searching around, searching for a kind of unexpected gentleness the wholeday long?

Are you alike me, even though have been ignored and mistreated, yet don’t want to give up hopes for what I have hoped for?

Are you alike me, have trapped in the mist alone, feel helpless, feel like standing on the crossroads repeatedly when don’t know where to go?

But,

I don’t care what other people think or say, I consistently hold on the stronge beliefs for love that I have promised to myself.

Because I know my future is not a dream. I manage every minute in life as the best way that I can do.

My future is not a dream when my heart vibrates with hopes.

My life continuously vibrates with hopes because my life is not a dream.

Time won’t Wait

When you are young, beautiful, handsome, strong and healthy, you don’t think or worry about time;the self confidence and desires for having fun in life can drive your hormone crazy that you think you have plenty of time and you can master the game in life.

A perfect and romantic gift to re-validate the wedding vows for love
from Rose D’Avers

Probably you think you have plenty of time to mandate relationship damages later in the future. Or, you don’t realize what kind of impacts from your decisions and action are actually doing to yourself or to others around you? Or you simply don’t care?

“The circle of cause and result never ends, it sometimes is not happening instantly but eventually will happen (因果循环,疏而不漏)”

But what does future really mean? Will time stands still and wait for you? Do you really think you can abuse time because you are young and beautiful now? You really believe no matter what you do, time will show mercy by standing still or you can fulfill your beautiful dreams without consequence in the future? That is the puzzled question to all relationships in life.

Are you still waiting, dreaming and hoping for what you want to have by throwing what you already have now away?

Time won’t wait.

The time is fair and the clock is ticking without stopping. Without knowing the number of wedding invitations in the mailbox are replaced by divorce announcements or funeral invitations.

Just hope it is not too late to realize what is the most important in life is having someone to share a peaceful moment when hairs turn to grey, someone is still sharing the simple loving days even when the face is covered with wrinkles, the back is no longer straight and eyelids are getting heavy.

One who takes time lightly will lose time without knowing; one who takes love for granted won’t find peace in love.

The Moment

Just keep #inhale and #exhale, number is not the issue, but how do we manage each breath is.

Life is not limited by numbers of breathing, but how do we #accept, #adapt and #keeptrying.

I am the captain of my soul. Don’t ask the #why, #justdo with a clear #consciousness. Good people never walk alone.

Don’t ask why I am here, because I am already here;

Don’t ask where I am going because I walk on the path I choose;

Don’t ask when my journey will end because I am trying my best everyday without counting.

Moment only last a moment that we can’t redo, just do my best to make best from every moment because it is my duty, my choice, my life.

Tea can not be copied

The utmost important learnings for #teasommeliers are not about tea ceremony but more about tea.

Tea trees can be migrated,tea production methods can be learned,but unique characters in flavors and tastes are hard to be copied.

Tea can not be copied

Learnings from Tea to Leadership

The path of tea is more than a tea path or passion for tea, but is more about how to become a better person with clear conscioysness and capability to maintain the inner peace from a simple moment of inhale and exhale.

If one can’t even respect tea, can’t even honest to own body, what is the chance for s/he has geniune respects and honest to others?

Wellness is not just what should you do or which tea you should but is about actions on energy balance in body and mind, everyday.

How does learnings from tea can link with leadership developments? Have a cup of warm tea, lean backwards, close your eyes and walk with me ……..

Imagine the peaceful conditions you need for the health of your body ……..

Imaging the positive and well streamlined energy to facilitate positive energy in mind ………

When you can consciously relax your sub-consciousness, when you are willing to listen and respect…. how that feeling of empowerment and trust do your body and mind?

Listen to your heart

Life can be simple and yet can be very complicated when we fail to feel the truth based on actual situations. When only want to believe or draw the judgement based on what we think but not based on reasonable facts, the chance being mislead is big.

The most critical learning in life is not what can achieve, but how well can we maintain a good balance in body, mind and energy, and how,well can we consciously sustain the inner peace in life by

Thinking logically

Acting reasonably

Feeling by listening from heart

Judging without preconceived decisions
