Is There Winning in Losing?

Published Enero 19, 2016 by jptan2012

A famous Irish author and screenwriter, David Landy, who wrote the Skulduggery Pleasant, which is a series of young adult books, wrote, “There’s no such thing as winning or losing. There is won and there is lost; there is victory and defeat. There are absolutes. Everything in between is still left to fight for.” This for me is such a cutthroat statement and if we are to base everything with this statement, it means that we are either winners or losers.

Winners or losers, I think most of us only think and associate ourselves very clearly as either winners or losers. It means we either has to win a thing, because otherwise we are then losers. Nobody wants to be losers. But what is really winning?

A reader turned friend who is a successful businesswoman shared with me something quite profound, and I now would like to share this with you.

I’m sure a lot of you will remember BM. She is a reader from Davao that has been featured on this blog for a number of times. You can read some of my posts about her here:

  1. Devastating Feng Shui Blunder Didn’t Affect the People Living in the Said House: A Story Of A Good Person With Good Karma!
  2. Unexpected High Sales Attributed to the Surangama Mantra Amulet.
  3. What’s Even More Powerful or Important than Feng Shui or an Amulet?
  4. Be Grateful for Miracles No Matter How Small.

For those who are not yet familiar with her, BM is a successful businesswoman with a very good heart. I will not go into details again of the things that she do for her nephews and other family, and employees, and other people. Needless to say, she has a very generous charitable heart and I believe this largely contributed to her tremendous luck, despite of having a house whose Feng Shui is quite bad. When reviewing her home’s Feng Shui, my Feng Shui teacher was really surprised to find out that the owner of the house is a successful businesswoman. When I explained her status in life, my Feng Shui teacher concluded that BM should have a good heart for her to survive what should have been devastating bad Feng Shui.

The other day, BM and I were talking on the phone, I really don’t remember what we were talking about but we got to talk about dealing with employees. That conversation lead to dealing with difficult employees, and it was in the process of this conversation that BM shared what she used to get angry when she feels like that somebody was trying to cheat her. However, BM said as she has matured she realized that sometimes it’s not important that we ‘win’ in every situation because there are times that it is more important to empower others than ensuring that we win a situation. Sometimes it is better to keep our mouth shut even if we know that the other person is trying to take advantage of us, because even these people will know deep down that we are simply being nice.

BM concluded by saying ‘there is winning in losing’!

I realized that she is right, there is winning in losing. The real winner is someone who can make everybody win and create a situation wherein there are no losers. And so I salute BM for giving me this valuable lesson. I hope we all learn something from this.

And so I would like to humbly say to Derek Landy, there are no absolutes in winning and losing. It’s possible that there is no won and loses. Furthermore, it is possible that there is victory and no defeat. But what is more important is how one make a person feels and how can one create a situation where we are all winners.

The Politician’s Lucky Charm or Amulet!

Published Oktubre 26, 2015 by jptan2012

It is once again election time, and whether we admit it or not, a lot of Filipinos now believes in Feng Shui and incorporates a lot of Chinese rituals to help ensure that they win the election on 2016.

Recently, a representative of a politician called me up asking for several pieces of the Vajrapani Ruel, I had to explain that the Vajrapani Ruel is very limited and that a person can only have one piece, a family may have 2 or at most 3, this is to give more family to have one.

I also notice a surge in the inquiry as to what is the best amulet or Feng Shui charm for a politician who is running for office.

Here are a few of my recommendations:

  1. Sun Wukong or The Monkey God. Read my post about this powerful Taoist deity or god and you’ll understand why wearing his image as a pendant is greatly beneficial to politicians. sun wukong
  2. Kuan Kong. I have written about Kuan Kong already and wearing his image will also give a politician a competitive edge this coming election.kuan kong pendant
  3. Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra. If you are in an area that is considered as a hot spot during elections because of hostile political opponents, I suggest that you wear a Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra this is to help temper the possible hostile energies.

  4. Vajrapani Ruel. As mentioned on the very post about the Vajrapani Ruel, it is largely a protection amulet, although regular readers of this blog knows that there are a lot of different wishes that are fulfilled by the Vajrapani Ruel. A dream to serve the people should be one of them. Plus, given that Vajrapani Bodhisattva is a Bodhisattva that of lightning and thunder family, it gives the people who has it the winning edge.

    The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It's important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

  5. Surangama Mantra Amulet. To understand more about this amulet, I suggest you read my initial post about it by clicking here. However, bear in mind, that when a person wears the Surangama Mantra Amulet, one is surrounded by certain heavenly beings, thus giving a person a good and ‘charming’ aura; it makes a person more likeable. But more than that it is also a protective amulet, so it is highly advisable for hot spots also.
    Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

Vajrapani Ruel Stories (14): Winning A Contest On National Television!

Published Hulyo 23, 2015 by jptan2012

Today, I would like to share with you another simple Vajrapani Ruel miracle or Vajrapani Ruel Stories as it is call here on this blog.

RP is a government official who works for one of the financial institution in the country; he got the Vajrapani Ruel for himself and his wife as early as January. However, for today I would like to share first the story of his son. Let’s just call him the JP (same initials as mine is purely coincidental). JP is a Theater Arts student in UP. When the leading noontime show decided to have a comedy contest, JP decided to join it with his friend.

RP called me up to watch the program but unfortunately I wasn’t able to.

Anyway, RP wanted to lend his son his Vajrapani Ruel, but because he is not sure whether it will be kept safe all the time he was highly hesitant, but RP’s daughter who has a Vajrapani Ruel also decided to lend her’s to JP. RP is not sure whether his daughter’s Vajrapani Ruel was with JP all throughout the program but one thing he is sure of is that the Vajrapani Ruel was rubbed against the body of JP before the program.

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It's important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless.

According to RP, JP is good. Trust me he said this without any bias. He is just being fair. However, the competition is really tight, JP’s brand of comedy is very theatrical in nature because that’s their training, while the other contestants’ brand of comedy is very street wise. According to RP, JP and his partner didn’t expect to win and wanted to go home at the middle of the program.

However, at the middle of everything, they noticed that the announcement of winners was suspended and the commercial break was extended. After a while, the program said that they would be announcing the winner, rather the winners. They clarified that they’ll be breaking the rule of having just one winner and that they will have two winners for that day.

To make the long story short, JP and his partner was one of the winners. RP, his wife, and JP, his son, all believe that they won largely because of the Vajrapani Ruel!
