Autumn Begins




Wise words of Autumn

Humans beings are not perfect, melons are not perfectly round. We should not seek the faults in others, just have a laugh at matters of the world. What is right what is wrong, to not seek that, is liberation. 

Song dynasty High Zen Master: Do not speak of other's long or short, to say this and that only results in one's demise. If you can keep your tongue under wraps, that is the number one shelter. 

7 August 2017, Mr. Chua speaks:

I had spent quite a lot of time and effort to edit this web site that I started in 2010 when I first tried blogging. The world had changed a lot since then with the explosive growth of social media; Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Tumblr, Blogger, You Tube, etc. making everyone and anyone their own media creator and publisher.

"Fake news" is a new phenomenon that grew with social media, nobody took notice until it was too late. With or without censorship in a country's culture and political landscape, it was the same outcome in countries in the west and here in Asia, as many naively believed most thing they read and saw on social media were true. 

It is a guiding principle for me to "curate" my postings on social media, be it Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and especially here on Blogger over the recent years; my articles are carefully chosen. I prefer to keep it positive paying forward these days. Be grateful for all the little things in my life this far. 

And so the two lines of the Chinese couplet:

Be happy, smile at matters of the world
Keep mouth shut and not discuss about people of the world

Happy Autumn 2017!
