Getting To Know the Universe and Your Inner Self

Hello World, 

New Age Authors

Ever since Oprah held the Eckhart Tolle free online course with his new book, A New Earth and discussed  Rhonda Byrne’s  book  ” The Secret “, on her show,  the world is definitely experiencing an increase in manifestations of positive energies.  There are now more people  going about their lives moving and shifting their good energy, alightning oneself to the Universe, focussing on being positive, giving out positive thoughts and their intentions to the universe.  And than there are other teachings from authors like Abraham and Esther Hicks and Michael J.Losier to choose from. 

Not 1 but 2

And than there is the  discovery that everyone has 2 selves.  The first one is usually called the ego and the other, depending on which book you are reading, it could be your Divine Self, your Inner Being, your Inner Self, your Soul  which supposedly  is THE one that generates the positive energies and get you to be bigger and better than who you are. 

Inner Self

Relatively, the Inner Self is usually in the back seat embedded deep into our Being and our ego is usually the one working cohesively with our mind  controlling our Self.  So Self in the form of Inner Being is seldom seen, felt or heard and if we could get our Inner Self or Inner Being to be visible and up front in the driver’s seat and get miss or mr. ego to the back seat, we are on the road to enjoying Inner Peace and we may just find ourselves cruising happily in our life.  

Than there are the tools or/and  exercises to help us conciously cajole our Inner Self to operate our Self cohesively with our mind.  Together Inner Self’s thoughts and wishes will project like a radar tuning into the right frequency to the mind ( receiver ) to make possible Inner Self to  operate from a place of  clarity, win-win, happiness,  positive energy running in our veins and dare I say classic signs of enlightenment! 


Well if you are happy, if your life works, if you experience ease and mastery of everything is okay, and there is love flowing freely in you and your family and your surroundings, its a pretty good thing you are well on the way to enlightenment.  That is possible when your Inner Self  is cruising along happily from the driver’s seat.  

 There are many authors from self-help, new age, spiritual and metaphysics saying very similar things but in so many different ways.  I am thoroughly in tune practicing and learning and it may take a while but soon I shall be able to discern whether it is  ego or Inner Self who is in the driver’s seat.  That’s not all, I shall throughly  experience and practice to attain the ability to ensure my Inner Self is constantly up front.  I too wish to experience enlightenment in my life.    Leaving you with lots of positive energies and vibes…   Big Hug 


Work In Progress

New things to learn

I can see this blog is going to a real work in progress. Gentle reminder to everyone,  I am a young 50 something self taught, d.i.y blogger!   Newbies, the forum ( from dashboard xtreme right )  is a good place to learn from other wordpress member’s beginner’s teething problems and good place for me to pick up the bloggers jargon and learnings.  Check out assisting to feature newbies’ postings on his website.  BTW tags and categories are the same right ?

Nope – no one there !

Today I click into my weblog and ahhhh … no visitors !!  Newbies nightmare.  Never mind, I shall get there.   So I confess, I went back and edited my past postings ( no one has read it yet ) so I am following the great rules – cut short my postings, include helpful sub heads for easy readings, add tags and categories.   I am a work in progress.

Is there a winning formula ?

  Hello World,

I am ”  2 days blog creation ” old and I feel compelled to write again. 

Helloooo ,   Is anyone out there??? 

My first blogsite

About 2 years ago or maybe even 3 yrs back  ….  I  encountered my first blogging site – The Datin Diaries !!!  Than, the word blog was new to me.   I remember giving a puzzled look at my young twenty something Friendster colleague who recomended the Datin Diaries. It was nice to peek into Datin’s world of Tatler society upper class butterflies friends and find out who does what and with whom.  Her writing was personal and I felt like she was an old friend who was just rambling on …. I use to think – wah  so clever one !!!  Can write such terror menera stories !  So that was what blogging is all about !!    

Why do I blog ?

I must confess to you.  I am a day one kiasu blogger who’s paranoid that no one will read my blog !

Well blogging is supposedly to be cathartic and self fulfilling !  But I don’t want to have a blog with no visitors.  It will be nice to get visitors.   So I just  wanna ask you nice happening people out there to comment whether my style of writing is okay or not and the more expert bloggers – any winning formula for a popular blog ??   

Still….. its nice to have visitors, comments and other people reading this.  You know, sharing! So …… ? 

Silly Questions but I shall ask anyway 

a) Is it a must to post pictures /images for my blog to attract more visitors ? ( silly question – you might as well ask me to go straight to do (g) ) 

b) Most blogs are so full of …well you know the ”  beep ! word “  and we have a fair share of angry bloggers out there, will my blog still be great without the combination of  strong words  and lots of swearing ! 

c)  In Malaysia, most bloggers refer to what’s in the news and when you get all of them blogging about the current political drama, it does get a tad you know – same old, same old content. Boring lar! 

d) Must I use Malaysian slang most of the time ?  I like to use a few localised slangs once in a while but than again there are some bloggers who write with a mixture of  Malaysian colloquial Chinese and Malay words.  I think that makes it more interesting and the reader will feel bonded – you know sama sama.  Does it mean I should start using more  of aiyah, lar, loh, meh and the likes? 

e) Than there is the humourous, witty style which is pretty straight forward.  Is that why Malaysia’s  No.1 personal blogger is so No.1 – I notice he uses the combination of witty humour, relevant topics and lots of videos s and pictures !!!!  Must be the winning formula – that’s why he is no.1. 

f) Shall I adopt a condescending, journalism and light hearted style instead ?  Always wanted to be a writer – like Marina’s Musings and Rantings.    She’s one of my favourite people on earth and I love her style of writing – straight, to the point and lets just tell it as it is.    I think I am more comfortable writing this style.  You know – just get it all out !!!!      

g) So wordpress is FOC – free of charge for a newbie blogger like me.  Does that mean I shall have to spend money $$$ to be able to upload pictures and videos to attract lots of people to read my blog to attain popularity for my blog ???  I remember  Datin Diaries did not have any pictures.  I was still hooked !!  Must be the content than !!!!!! Hah – surely I am right , the winning formula must rely on the choice of the topic !!! 

Its early days yet right ?

Isn’t blogging global and is reaching out to millions of eyeballs? Is there such a thing as a failed blogger ?


Its a mind game

Hello World,

My First Blog

I am thrilled!  I did it !  I am finally blogging!   You know,  the self help diy way.  How else these days for a happening 50 something determined to try out Facebook ( What IS IT??? I wondered before …)   learning the ins and outs of internet technology and its community sites.  Duh.. I only just got the hang of biru gigit ( bluetoothing) the songs and  images via mobile phones and computers! 

Facebook – its a new thing

I started my Facebook and learn to poke people and send fictious flowers, perfumes and good karma.  How do people get to spend the time to talk to a global community ?  So much to do in Fbook.   Personally, I prefer emails and face to face over a cup of coffee thingy.  I like the bonding with friends. 

Sharing Thoughts, power of the mind. 

Thoughts – yes, thoughts are powerful.  The mind is so powerful.  They say –  Its all in the mind you know; Boredom is a state of the mind.  The mind perceives therefore what the mind perceive of the brand of the product is all  it takes,  to make or break a sale.   The new self help development programs tells us a whole new paradigm of the way we think and how when we change our thoughts and our beliefs, we can change our lives.  Isn’t it the mind that is the vehicle used to attain enlightenment?  I have one experience about how powerful my mind can become.  

Is that why you hear of dying people who are able to linger and is not ready to die  because they  have the ability to hold onto life until they get to see their loved ones one last time.  Just imagine the power of the mind not allowing the body to shut down and imagine the business of the will of the mind to hold onto life !  Sigh….

Why blog ?

Okay, now why do I have so much time to start a  blog and dabble in Facebook ?  Well I am an X corporate employee because I choose to leave my company and am taking a short break until I decide on the what’s next.  However I do have lots to share on my experiences and observation on dodging corporate political bullets and my learnings over the years on meeting corporate bosses’ expectations,  .. and along the way some entertaining tales I can yarn on my  blog.    How else do I get to titillate your curiosity so you can visit me again ?? Sunglasses
