靈修分享

to my dearest friends,

Thank you all for showing support by telling me you keep visiting here and read my stuff :)
Whenever I want to write something and post anything, I will think of you who keeps reading this and will try my best to make things interesting, so that not bored by me ;)

hahaha, I promised a fd earlier that I will make a post of what I bought recently, mainly about clothes. However, there is not too much time after work and don't want to "work" at vacations, my clothes are still being kept in the closet. :P

I havent finished the book, The Paradox of Time. In fact, I have put it aside after flipping a few pages. Then I found this, 靈修導師的幸福8堂課。If you are Catholic, you may find easier to understand. I read this for 靈修purpose, for some of the time. Then I found another book, "Awareness". The word sound so buddha, but I bought it from 公教進行社, so I am quite sure it's OK and helpful in 靈修.

For me, 靈修 is no longer reading bible, or a typical, MUST DO Chrisitian practice. It is one of the ways of connecting with yourself, or connect to God, whatever you named. I have gained a new understanding of spirituality after my Master Programme, since then I seem get addicted into spiritual stuff. I feel like spirituality is something boundless, that it is not merely a Buddha stuff, Christian or Catholic stuff. It is something lied within us deeply. It is liked a treasure, when you find YOUR way to the treasure, that is able to connect with yourself, then you are a profound human being, in new age term, it is "maginified", I supposed.

So, if you find the key, then you would become integrated, you become one, become wholly. It is a treasure that you can take whenever and wherever you want. It is boundless and it is within you. But then I think of what Jesus says, he says He is the way to heaven. I wonder, if the state I describe is "heaven", and if you want to really get there, then you have to know Jesus. That is what I understood at this moment.

I am really, really glad to know all of these. There is joy with me when i get knowing more things about spirituality. The book 靈修導師的幸福8堂課 shares what does Fathers, sisters, and other spiritually strong do, say and write, shed readers glimpse of thoughts of such people. What is Love, what is live, what is work and what is death to them...

Then comes the "Awareness", the writer is more radical. He says awareness is wake up. If you want to wake up, you need to admit that you do not want to wake up...Oh gosh...if you are interested, please visit his website http://www.demello.org/

重新得力

(以賽亞書四十: 27-31 )

上星期五,身心俱疲,沒有上班。

我不清楚疲勞原因,只知道自己好像一直以來都很疲倦。可能是工作壓力,加上轉了新環境,新床不習慣吧?

轉了新工作快接近一個季度,不過並不是每天都很快樂。不是嫌棄工作環境,就是人際關係難處理,好像沒有一事合乎自己心意。

這種心情也不是陌生的第一次,而是每天每周每月每年都重覆著......噢,究竟我發生了甚麼事?

沒有上班並不停止我上網的習慣。在網上與A相遇了。「雪遲!今天忘了相約午膳!」

跟她交待原委,原以為大家打哈哈便算了,怎料話題徐徐地掀到我的工作態度來。

她一語中的,指出我的工作態度出現些問題。我常抱怨這,又投訴那,主要還離不開人事,她突然問我﹕

「你問過神,為甚麼衪總差遣白痴上司給你?」

「......」

我真的沒有想過。

的確,以前我總說工作地方「冇野學」「制度唔掂」;可是,轉了九萬份工,工作環境還是一樣。漸漸我也開始放棄這個「要求」,因為對「人」都開始失望了。

「你有沒有想過,可能是神不需要你跟精明上司學習,而是有另一份功課給你?」A繼續說。

「不需要跟精明上司學習。」這根本與我的思想逆其道而行!每個人都想有個精明上司,希望在他/她英明帶領下闖出一番成績來吧!或跟他/她學點東西,將來學以致用。不然,工作除了金錢,還為甚麼?

「可能,祂要你學習的功課是如何盡忠。」

「......」

再一次,我坐在電腦屏幕前良久。這句話就是衝著我而來的,我不知如何回應。

甚麼是盡忠呢? 我馬上想想自己有多少次沒有盡忠?

多少次是沒有遲到呢?
多少次工作沒有馬虎完成呢?
有些事情我有如實報告給上司知道嗎?

可能閣下本身已是一位盡忠職守的員工,因此會對我如此反思感到嚏之以鼻。

不過,盡忠,聽起來我一直都覺得是很笨的一個詞語。在學校裏,上堂抄功課,聊天是很平常的事,沒有人叫你盡忠,盡忠是岳飛的事,而他是不得好死的。對朋友也不需太盡忠,因為你對乙抱怨有時不太認同甲的行為,第二天甲衝來質問你為何對他人說三道四? 對同事、對上司更加不需要盡忠,因為某天上司之上司說要炒人,她說不如炒你。走精面、推說﹕「那不是我的工作範圍」是上班族必學的事,因為你做第一次,就會有第二次、第三次第四次至N次,直至別人認為做不完工作的責任仍是你。

盡忠,實在是太傻、太笨、太令人疲累的事。

那是我以前的想法而已。

我馬上檢討自己的工作態度,當然,我並不能一朝改掉所有陋習*。我能夠如何於現職盡忠? 由這條問題開始,我思考自己為甚麼來這兒工作? 為甚麼我要選擇這份工作? 為甚麼我選擇這個範疇工作? 讀書,是為了甚麼?

A提醒我,最重要是祈禱。在衪之內沒有甚麼事不成。

Public Education,這個字漸漸在我腦海浮現出來。

記起了,想當初上一份工接觸到health communications、social marketing,才燃起我在這方面工作的興趣,才接受marketing officer這份工作。因為這個mo是在教育機構裏的醫療教育內。大家還記得,我是從來未做過marketing的。

反思自己這幾個月有沒有在這方面發揮過。勉強數,都真談不上算有。marketing成份有,education就真不用提了。

"Hard work is a prison sentence only if it does not have meaning." Malcolm Gladwell, Outliers一書作者示。我在這兒的工作不算hard,但一直也沒有太多意義。

今天,再看到這篇文章,這幾個問題又給我多些反思空間﹕

Eight new job descriptions - Be...

- An apostle Do I feel compelled to share my faith publicly?
- A prophet Do I have the personality to stand up for what is right?
- A teacher Do I have a knack for helping others learn?
- A miracle worker We all do this every day - right?
- A healer Do I have a good sense of humor that can heal spirits?
- A helper I don't have to be in charge, I'm content simply lending a hand.
- An administrator Am I a good organizer who keeps the company going?
- A good communicator Do I listen to others and do they listen to me?

What am I? Who am I? What am I supposed to be? what am I supposed to do?

*哈哈,這篇blog是在上班時間完成的。・

Learning, always learning...

How many of you known Elisabeth Kubler Ross? I learnt her name from the lecture of Grief and bereavement. At first, i only know that she has developed a Grief model describing how and waht do we go through the process of emotional expereince when we are in grief.

Last night, I read a chapter of the book from her (mentioned in previous email), the book is about recording the last life of patients, some are children, some are young women and some are elderly.

I saw some of their pictures and imagined what would happen if he/she were my mum? my future husband? My friends? OMG, my tears running out in a second, I wanna hold them back indeed, but I know they are telling me something and I just let them flow.

I asked myself why do the photos make me cry? Is the grief of loss still inside me? OMG, I am too afraid to answer this questions, I feel that I have admitted I have not done my best, I am BAD if I say "yes".

At the same time, I feel so lucky that I was able to have a chance of reading this book, time is really limited in our lifetime. Death and dying is something we need to face eventually, I cannot avoid this issue whenever I want. When I sat there and allowing myself to feel the pain, to feel the sadness, I was thrilled cuz I found I have a lot of love :')

My mother loves me so much and would suffer for me if she sees me in pain. My future husband cares about me more than himself. My friends has their faith in me and would help me if I need help. My brother is so nice that he takes care of his life literally, he doesn't need my attention for growth. Because of this, i bursted in tears, God treated me really good, He has put a lot of angels in my life. I FEEL the grace and the love. I covered myself under the blankets and thank God, He has given me a lot, I did not accept it but always whining that I have not enough!!!! The fact is I just took them for granted. What a shame!

Then a strength from nowhere suddenly come inside of me, it makes me feel strong and stnad up for myself (literally). I know that I could not whine and blame for more, for the sake of love and care from those love me, I will take a good care of myself, and I need to take care of them as well. For the people makes me uncomfortable, they are not my concerns anymore, suddenly, they become very light(輕) and fade away from me.

Ave Maria

為甚麼天主教重視聖母﹖我認為這是一個很好的說法﹕

我們的任務是在這「自我新生」(self-renewing)的愛情中持之以恆,並不是自尊自大或勉強地,而是懷着純樸的信。在我們對聖誕節的理解中,瑪利亞是極重要的中心人物。最關鍵的,她是內心靈修(interiority)的卓越典範,帶給我們每人直接旳意義。就像瑪利亞在她身內孕育人性的基督,我們也必須在我們心靈以內孕育、朝拜基督,記得祂是真正地活在我們以內,就如祂的身體臨在祂的母親以內一樣。

---〈摘錄自若望邁恩神父 (John Main OSB)「第一篇書信:1977年12月10日 — 心靈的書信」“Letter One: December 10, 1977”LETTERS FROM THE HEART〉

Spirituality in Early Christianity

Lately, I am so immersed in the subject of "Spirituality". However, sometimes I also doubt myself that if I am going in a wrong way where lead me to ...jumee™Feel Depressed4

I believe no matter what religion you have, they might share a common ground indeed. The pathway is named "Spirituality". Whether you are Buddist, Christian or Catholic, I believe deep in our heart, the place/space where we found peace and joy, it should be the point where we meet God.

It is my speculation only. There are a lot of materials about meditation, how to unite with yourself on the internet and most of them seems to be in buddhism. It cannot satisfy me. Then I found this clip, I 'd like to share here if anyone want to have a discussion on this\ƒÖ\. However, he is a priest from Eastern Orthodoxy (東正教). Not exactly reflect the same thing as Catholic. But I am still happy to learn more from different perspectives

要理答問

啱啱睇完蘭登博士點樣化險為夷,帶領觀眾反轉羅馬,去曬d特別嘅天主教聖堂,仲成日影住個幾計若真嘅聖彼堡,一大班群眾聚集 (當然唔係真啦!人地都唔批佢喺凡帝岡拍野!)。令我都好好奇,係咪真係咁靚﹖

不過套戲講到天主教好陰暗咁,我唔否認呢d野存在,閉門會議,投票邊個做下一任教宗,呢d仲唔係箱作業﹖呢d係真人真事黎架!不過我認識嘅天主教,仲有好多面嘅。結尾時唔知點解果兩句講完我就流眼淚喇。因為我覺得好感動。一個有宗教信仰嘅,同一個冇信仰,睇同一件事可以有好唔同嘅角度。簡單一句話,兩個人唔同立場馬上顯現出來。感動嘅係,神父凝望蘭登,相信佢一直所做的正揭示天主的意思。但他沒有強迫蘭登相信自己宗教,只是坦言告訴他所信的。這種純粹、faithful及包容令我很感動!

上個星期去左做visit,我地同d後生仔圍圏傾下計啦,當中有位神父喺度。到自由發問時,我問神父一日嘅時間係點過﹖默想玫瑰經又係點架﹖估唔到竟然勾起一位後生仔好奇心,問神父拍過拖味,又問係玫瑰經,仲叫神父教佢唸喎!哈哈,真得意!

其實玫瑰經同聖母有好多關係,《玫瑰經》(正式名稱為《聖母聖詠》),於十五世紀由天主教正式頒佈,是天主教徒用於歌頌聖母瑪利亞的一種敬禮,是一種編排好了的經文。「玫瑰經」一詞來源於拉丁語「Rosarium」,意為「玫瑰花冠」或「一束玫瑰」。「Rosa」即玫瑰之意。此名是比喻連串的禱文如玫瑰馨香,敬獻於天主與聖母身前。
(資料來源﹕維基百科)

有個朋友仔同我講,佢細細個時d修女就叫佢地多唸玫瑰經,因為每唸一次就好似獻上一朵玫瑰咁。我又問過神父,點解咁多花唔揀,係要揀玫瑰,佢答得仲好笑,佢話因為果時陣最常見就係玫瑰花,所以咪用玫瑰咯!咁都得﹖都唔知真唔係...哈哈

常聽說「天主教拜聖母」。「你係天主教徒,你地拜聖母架﹖」well,點講好呢﹖查實天主教唔係拜聖母,聖母嘅天主教黎講係有一個非常獨特位置,點獨特呢﹖我都唔知呀!

搵到個wesbite,入面有好多好正嘅問題,都係我呢d yaya wu嘅平信徒有興趣嘅提問﹕

天主教包容而不排斥

崇拜、宣道、團契的平衡 乜原來有個咁嘅圖可以咁解法,好正啵kao03


天主教並不拜聖母﹖

誰拜偶像?

告解聖事彰顯天主的慈愛

煉獄是甚麼?

教宗的地位

連基督教也不承認的摩門教 哇!摩門教都講埋!kao05

呢d大是大非野,都係quote下個source穩陣d﹕公教教研中心

今個月係聖母月,而十月就係玫瑰月。玫瑰同聖母息息相關。按維基資料,聖母月係天主獻畀聖母瑪利亞嘅月份,通常響西暦5月,基督徒會效法聖母嘅行同請求佢代禱,同埋指導信徒點樣信從同依靠基督。

呢d圖我細細個成日見。

I need hope & strength

So happy to find fds who know Catholic songs from secondary schools, such as "God is spirit in my heart", and "Thank you" and "Love is dwelling in my heart"etc. It is hard to find Catholic songs online. Even so, it is something humming or in Gregorian Chants. Those we can realy sing are in Christian version only though it doesn't bother me anyway.

But then found some in youtube. For friends who are Catholic or interested in Catholic or anything NOT! hahaha ^^

呢個真係好聽,唱都好好聽。


比較似pop song嘅一首

一個徹底的白羊人。做事憑一股衝勁,接著後勁不繼,即朋友說的3分鐘熱度。怎麼說好呢﹖


即使只有3分鐘熱度,也學習如何好好發揮,成為最漂亮的永恆。
