養身?養生?

  • 養身:古代醫書沒有這個詞,顧名思義,滋養人的「肉體」。
  • 養生:可以泛指「生理」與「心理」,涵蓋「有形」的四肢跟臟器,還有「無形」的心。
  • 中醫角度:「春養生、夏養長、秋養收、冬養藏」。春天萬物「生發」,應該要「發陳」,把冬季積存在體內的廢物排放出去。

中醫春天養生理念

  • 春季應「夜臥早起,廣步于庭,被髮緩形,以使志生。」
  • 要早起,穿寬鬆的衣物,頭髮放下不要綁,不宜做太劇烈的運動,在空氣新鮮的綠地散步,感受體內的律動、蓬勃的生機,從生活起居中找回健康。
  • 11點至1點經絡走到膽經,1點至3點到肝經,肝膽之氣最旺,所以最好在11點前就上床睡覺,好好休息,讓肝膽發揮功能,清除累集的毒素。

全人養生

  • 養生境界:上養心,中養氣,下養身
  • 養生法寶:善心、福心、愛心

養生先養心、養心先養德

  • 大醫治病,安神定志,無欲無求,發大慈惻隱之心,普救含靈之苦。
  • 中國最老中醫106歲 養生秘訣
    養心先養德2 重慶市名老中醫熊廖笙,動靜結合、以靜為主;心身健康,養心為主;葷素搭配,以素為主。「動以養生,靜以養心」、「養生先養心、養心先養德」、「精神內守,病安從來」,意為品德高尚、充滿善心和愛心的人,疾病是不會上身的。
  • 「養德」是最好的「養生」方式,它是在未生病之前,杜絕生病的來源。
  • 老子道德經養德章第51
    道生之,德畜之,物形之,勢成之。是以萬物莫不尊道而貴德。道之尊,德之貴,夫莫之命而常自然。故道生之,德畜之,長之育之,成之孰之,養之覆之。生而不有,為而不恃,長而不宰,是謂玄德。

 Diligence: Proverbs and Quotes

  • "Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance." (Samuel Johnson)

  • "What we ever hope to do with ease, we must first learn to do with diligence." (Samuel Johnson)
  • "Leisure is time for doing something useful; this leisure the diligent man will obtain, but the lazy man never" — Benjamin Franklin

Show reverence for the parents whenever possible. A Chinese saying goes, “The tree wants to stop swinging but the wind does not cease blowing.” It would be too late to show love and care for our parents when they are not here anymore! Cherish them physically and mentally in time.

Chinese Classic Scriptures                                                                    

  • “… filial piety is the root of (all) virtue …1” (The Scope and Meaning of the Treatise, The Classic of Filial Piety)
  • “How there must be reverence in filial duty. The filial piety nowadays means the support of one's parents. But dogs and horses likewise are able to do something in the way of support; without reverence, what is there to distinguish the one support given from the other? 2”(Chapter 7, Book II, Confucian Analects)
  • “In serving his parents, a son may remonstrate with them, but gently; when he sees that they do not incline to follow his advice, he shows an increased degree of reverence, but does not abandon his purpose; and should they punish him, he does not allow himself to murmur. 3” (Chapter 12, Book IV, Confucian Analects)

 Taiwanese Sayings

  • The care of serving a single bean when parents are alive is worthy more than a banquet at their funeral.
  • A big tree gives shade to the house. The elder provides shade to the home.
  • The parents who raised you are more important than those who gave birth to you.

 Quotes

  • God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers. (Rudyard Kipling)
  • An undutiful daughter will prove an unmanageable wife. (Benjamin Franklin)
  • Undutiful children will prove unmanageable spouses. (Modified saying of Benjamin Franklin)

Yuan Liao-Fan was born in the Ming Dynasty. At 69, he wrote a book Liao-Fan's Four Lessons as heritage to his son. He died at the age of 73. Here’s the story.

 Everything was FATE. One could do NOTHING to alter it.

  1. Elder Kong who was good at fortune telling told Liao-Fan he would pass 3 tests at respective places. A year later, the results of the test proved Kong correct in all counts.
  2. Elder Kong foresaw everything. What position Lian-Fan would have in the government, how much compensation, and that he would die at the age of 53 with no son.
  3. As many predictions proven with great accuracy, Liao-Fan ceased to challenge matters in life. He had no ambitions, meditated all day long, and stopped studying.

 One’s Destiny was in his/her own hand.

  1. At 36 Liao-Fan met a monk, Yun-Gu who stated the common would be bound to Yin-Yan (the fate). The exceptions are those who did great deeds or committed unforgivable sins.
  2. Yun-Gu taught that to change the destiny, one needed to
  3. reflect the good and bad done
  4. daily discipline oneself: consciously do the good deeds

 One was not bound by fate, but his own actions

  1. After self-examining his personality and habits, Liao-Fan decided he deserved the fate he had.
  2. Yun-Gu taught him how to change his fate
  3. rig of bad habits and control his temper
  4. act diplomatic, be humble and kind, help the needed, and be strict to himself

 Cultivation and prayers

  1. Liao-Fan confessed to the buddha and promised 3,000 good deeds.
  2. He started to change himself, rig the bad and seek the virtuals.

 Liao-Fan’s fate started to change

  1. Liao-Fan was cautious about what he said and did. He faced criticism with a clear conscious.
  2. A year after doing good deeds persistently, Elder Kong’s predictions were no longer as accurate.

 DAO was available to the humble

  1. When famous, act humble; when things are going great, proceed with caution as not.
  2. Show respect to others. Don’t feel shame to ask questions and help.
  3. Discipline yourself and show good manners. Nurture your virtues and enter DAO.
  4. Reflect daily. Rig of the wrong whenever you can.

Liao-Fan made an effort to change his destiny and succeeded. This book was the proof. Here are the questions and answers if you are still puzzled.

  1. Can one change his destiny? YES
  2. How?   Through Cultivation. Show Kindness and Humility.

On Monday’s interview “Wanna Be A Producer?” with Hanna Feng from Da Ai TV in Taiwan, she shared her expectation to her teammates. Besides the accuracy of data, she wants them to take charge of and be responsible for their works. So that what presented in front of the audience is positive, encouraging, and useful. And that the audience gains something from each episode.

In the modern society it is dog eat dog. We sometimes got disorientated for various reasons, such as demands from the management, or competitions among colleagues and businesses. When it happens, we tend to drift along and gradually lost ourselves. We act as others who only talk about being successful, fame, or financial achievement. There is nothing wrong to be successful and financially secured. What we need to remember is we are not here only for those, or waste our lives away doing nothing else.

Here are two cute cards I found at a seminar to share with you.

1. Stay alert. Encourage yourself daily. Do NOT be superficial.

Keep your mind and heart clear at all times. Don’t be buried under all sorts of desires. Pad yourself on the back every day for you’d done right and continue on the correct direction. Do NOT turn your back from DAO. A superficial attitude might fool others for a short time but it will fool no one including yourself after a while.

After years of doing politics news and commercial channels, Ms. Feng moved onto Da Ai TV, a non-profit TV station. She encourages her teammates to challenge themselves with different topics. Her take is that as long as one is willing to try, research the subjects, and find the right angle, all topics are with potentials. Since the show is only 24, every second counts. She asks the writers to spend the time well on sharing the key messages. Although the rating is important, it’s not above everything. Should one want to have achievement and be somebody in the field, put the heart out. It is not only a paid job but also a career requires conscience.

ž2. Maintain mindfulness. You’ll have the strength to overcome any difficulty.

With your heart secured, direction correct, and continue encouraging yourself, even during difficult times, you are still able to persist and not change the course. No matter it is at work, at home, at school, or in a social setting, you will find the courage and means to overcome obstacles in life. That is how to live DAO in life.
