I’m always where you’ve been, but where have you gone?
I’m not allowed to know, I’m not allowed to go.

A Small Act

Leave a comment
Ethical urbanite. / This is personal.

Yesterday with excitement I attended the first screening organised by My Fair Lady, advocate of cruelty-free, vegan and fair trade beauty goods in Hong Kong. On the grey screen was A Small Actand that small act in focus was an old Jewish lady Hilde Back’s unintentional tuition fee sponsorship to the now accomplished founder of a charitable organisation that pays the priceless support forward to Kenyan kids. It is a beautiful story about charitable causes. Yet what touches me is when one of the candidates Ruth said she ran out of words to describe how much she craves knowledge and when the founder Chris said education is a life and death matter

Lessons that I left the theatre with? That I shouldn’t waste my current ability to be even more knowledgeable about the world and that what we at JupYeah strive to do may be trivial but perhaps that small act can have a huge impact on someone, if not society, if not the world.

And so it is. There is no such thing as truth. What we make sense of is merely our very own interpretation on energies and clues transmitted to us. What we call truth occurs only on our very own temporal and spatial scale. And so it is. When there is no such thing as truth, the best we can do is to stay as close to each other as possible, keeping our different versions of realities entwined.

Besides the order of nature everything is nothing more than an illusion, including the existence of each and everyone. But amidst this wrong spectrum I would not regret to sense, feel, stretch and be ridiculous. Everything is so wrong and dynamic, but wrong and dynamic is humanity. So please let me continue to be ridiculous because the vast nature will silent the echoes anyway.

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It’s getting better and better.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

I am writing this, loathing a frightened soul, this noisy world, all these beautiful-from-afar, CO2 emitting floating stars. It has all the glitter, yet the glow is only to shade all the ugly scars. Wounds make us who we are, and this tide of turbulence stirs up all the absurdity within me. Nothing is happening. The storm conquers only me from within. One feels like being a tree whilst everyone happily gets their share of the fruits; only that the tree itself is not watered.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Say a litter prayer.

Beautiful means nothing at all. The crave to find my equilibrium is another self-denial.

My favourite quote says finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

I finish my today suddenly in a hotel room overlooking my dear harbour, because I need solitude so much. And I am going to be done with it.

The water is steaming. I am writing this with a ridiculously frightened soul.

LIVE. LOVE. NAMASTE.

NAMASTE

Since I returned from Nepal I feel very strongly about the word ‘namaste’. It’s more than just a hello or goodbye. Every greeting comes with a sincere blessing, sheer kindness. Live today, love now, et namaste.

其實那些人方是正值狂想,慌亂之際髮動緊張。
霓虹的存在意義是合理化幻象,掩蓋那荒唐、壯麗與無常。
人只想留白一撮自我慰藉,毋用正常語言作解釋。
庸人在世,人等在迷。

就是兀突的不完整。

You need chaos in your soul.
Sometimes I do understand why you are so into Nietzsche.
The only thing is you don’t understand how chaotic my soul already is.
Having one to stand by and witness was a blessing.
Yet chaos in itself is a solitary thing.

CALM

Just to remind myself how stupid it is to try to be smart all the fucking time.
Om.

Vipassana

If you are feeling discomfort then you are supposed to meditate upon that discomfort, watching the effect that physical pain has on you. In our real lives, we are constantly hopping around to adjust ourselves around discomfort – physical, emotional and psychological – in order to evade the reality of grief and nuisance. Vipassana meditation teaches that grief and nuisance are inevitable in life, but if you can plant yourself in stillness long enough, you will, in time, experience the truth that everything (both discomfort and lovely) does eventually pass.
