I hope that this post doesn’t get me into trouble and be accused of favoritism, but the truth is favoritism is something that we can’t avoid. How can you avoid playing favorites with people who makes you feel good?
Yesterday, I wrote about DU, who is now a friend that used to be only a reader. I think what really drawn me to her and her husband is the fact that they are both has a very positive personality, they exude positive chi. DU can be a little over analytical and thus it leads to her being worrisome at times, but I believe that she has a good heart and it exudes out of her that is why we became friends. In fact, to be completely honest, I can be quite selfish with my collection of Feng Shui charms and Buddhist pendants or amulets, but I find it easy to share it with DU and her husband because it doesn’t feel like I’m totally parting with those things but rather handing over them to better people.
Recently, I again had the opportunity to meet another reader. Elisa G, is from Mindanao, and although we’ve talked over the phone, we’ve never actually met in person until recently. She’s born under the sign of the dragon and although our Chinese zodiac signs doesn’t really match, she totally exudes a positive attitude, positive energy which is a reflection of her good heart that I find myself drawn to her and wanting to become her friend. In fact, she’s so positive that I find myself offering her some of the rare amulets that are with me. Something that I don’t really do because some of these amulets are quite difficult to find and I’m not sure whether I can still get them.
To be completely honest, I can be classified as a hoarder when it comes to collecting Feng Shui charms and Buddhist pendants and amulets. But both DU and Elisa G has helped me learn or are helping me learn to accept that we shouldn’t put any emotional attachment to material things, whether these are rare amulets, or an expensive piece of Feng Shui charms or Buddhist pendant. But more than that this shows the importance of having a positive personality, because it has the ability to make people feel better thus helping them become a better person.
Note: I used Elisa’s name here because she has agreed to let me put her name.
This is a picture of Red when he was only 1 and 1/2 months old. This was taken at the place where he was born. Took him only on his 2nd month. Called him Red because he is technically a red toy poodle.
I’ve always loved dogs but for some reason I’ve always been afraid of them. I don’t really know where this fear of anything that’s four legged started, but I was once told by psychic that it can be karmic because of a past life issue. I don’t know whether she’s correct or not, but to this day I’m still unable to explain my fear for anything that’s four legged, specially cats and dogs.
Then again, it can be because of the fact that growing up my elders would always tell us to avoid dogs because they might bite us and that we will die because of its rabies. They will say that full of conviction and with energy as high as that of Superman’s.
Nevertheless, a little more than a month ago, I finally full fill a long time dream to get a pet. It was a long hard decision, but upon convincing of a friend with a little help from his toy poodle, I decided to get my own dog.
It was a tough decision, and while I was very excited, the first 2 days was really emotionally difficult for me. I’m taking on such a big responsibility that I begin to doubt whether I would be able to properly care for my pet, who I decided to call Red.
However, no matter how hyper Red is, he showed me his gentle side and that we need to work together to make it work. Red showed me that he would be willing to listen to me as long as take on the responsibility and that I should act as a leader.
At the moment, I have improved a lot on my relationship with Red. However, it’s a work in progress, I still have much to learn, but one thing is for sure. Red is making me a better person.
