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


Water to Tea

Water is mother to tea. The alkalinity in water would influence the color and taste in tea.

Japanese researcher, Masaru Emoto, devoted his life in the research the frequency in water. Amazingly his researches discovered how water could react to the energy to the energy wave.

The frequency that we can’t see would influence the alignment of molecular in water and that can, too, influencevthe color and taste of tea.

Those researches open opportunities to companies who provid mineral water or those who manufacture water filter system. Before hurrying into a decision making to invest in water purification system, perhaps what yoy can do is first to check with the community adminstration department to find out more anout the quality in the local drinking water.

Simple tips to remember for good water are,

  • of course, the first thing would be the color should be clean, clare and transparent
  • No strange smell or bad odor
  • Taste refreshing and light but not flat or dull

DaoYin QiGong

DaoYin Qigong has been practising by Chinese more than 3000 years according to ancient scripts and there are at least more than 3000 different forms of qigong exercise.

Healthy lifestyle begins from paying attention on every detail that aims to improve the immunity system in the attemp of preventing trouble conditions to occur.

The advancement in internet technologies provide us a lot of convinces, but we can easily become more egoism and put more focus on the cyber space of Center-Me, in the wheel of change, unconsciously it increases a lot psychological stress because we do not having enough time for the True-Me.

There is no way to create time or gain more time than 24 hours if we can’t even give ourselves some time.

Mei Lan Hsiao started to learn and practice Daoyin Qigong in 1985 when she was diagnosed for spinal shift on low back due to previous excessive incorrect aerobic exercises. She was fortunated being accepted by Martial Arts Grand Mater of Northern Praying Mantis, Lan Shu-Ru, due to her physical pain so she focus only on the healing aspects in Daoyin Qigong with Master Lan, and later with Master Lee Qing-Han.

Mei Lan knows how to apply the wisdom learning in Tea and Daoyin Qigong in healing based on her past unpleasant experience in physical injuries, psychological burn-out and emotional chaos. Mei Lan knows not only about theoriesis behind each movement, she is a living example of how to live by practicing.
