English Version Below……
The cool breeze chilled my body as I was walking on the street with my girl’s heavy bag.
But my heart was filled with warmth when the thought of the surprises gift came into my mind.
When I was paying bills in the computer last night, my phone screen flashed with a notification from WordPress. Yingzi (I only got to know her name after that), another blogger, has left a comment in my blog, requesting for my email address, as she wanted to share a book with me.
I was honestly surprised by this blogger’s gesture, whom I do not know how does she look like, or where on earth she is and I didn’t even know her name.
We have never truly chatted before and yet she has stepped forward and wanted to share a book with me, this thought of hers has truly touched me deeply in my heart.
I gave her my email address and it was just a matter of a minute, a mail came in and I opened it immediately and started to download the book (in PDF format) from Google drive. It is a book from a well known monk on meditation.
From my blog, Yingzi knows that I have been pursuing inner peace by meditation and hence has uploaded this book into the cloud for me to download. Just a little thought like this has allowed me to feel the friendship that she is offering to me.
Then it daunted upon me that I have done the same thing to another Singapore blogger when I offered to lend a book to her. I hope that she will benefit from the book just as I have.
Perhaps that is exactly the Law of Attraction. I have very kindly offered my book to a seemingly “lost soul” and in return attracted a friendship that I have never imagined before.
And perhaps is what we call good karma?
I can still recalled the first comment I received from Yingzi was just about 2 weeks back. She has left a note telling me that she likes my blog and we had a short “conversation” over the comments in my “About Me” page.
I am thankful and proud for what has happened. I am thankful that Yingzi likes my blog. I am proud that I have found someone who really read what I’m writing. It has always been my own personal dream to pen my thoughts down and share with others, hoping that they will be inspired or benefit from my writings.
I have started reading the book from Yingzi and have already discovered some wisdom within:
“Do not worry how far the journey of practice can bring you. All you need to do is to practice and let go of all thoughts, especially the thought of enlightenment.”
“You should not bear the thought of attaining enlightenment when practising. And even if you are enlightened, you should not be thinking that you have gained something.”
The wisdoms above has knocked into my head and made me understand that my attempt seek for happiness through meditation and the practice in itself is a wrong thought…….
