Let’s pray

Smug human beans and those that are materially successful tend to sneer and despise the poor that went down on their knees to pray to God or heaven or whatever deities or spirits they could seek to give them a helping hand. Such practices have been perpetuated throughout human civilization till today. The hapless, the helpless, the poor have no one to look to and in desperation turn to the supernatural as a last resort. The natural aristocrats, the royalties, the elite would quietly sneered at their stupidity. The arrogant would laugh haughtily at these pathetic beans and their desperate ways.
 

Don’t laugh, go to all the places and houses of worship, they are all praying. Even the fallen rich, fallen elites or aristocrats would go down on their knees to pray when they hit hard times.
Looking around at what is happening in this little piece of rock, it looks increasingly real and meaningful to pray to the supernatural when all else do not seem to work. Yes, the Sinkies are in desperation. Ok, not all Sinkies are in such a dire state, but those that were, their only hope is for the supernatural to do something. Many are hoping against all hopes that there is indeed a super bean out there to come to their aid when all else fails.
 

Everyone in the wrong side of the equation is hoping and praying for the mysterious hand to make things right. What else can they do? Yes, nothing. Their ancestors have done this through the millennia and today is no difference.
 

Let’s pray that wrong should be righted and goodness shall prevail over evil.
Everyone please go down on your knees. There is no shame to pray. You are just hapless poor human beans with on power to do anything to help yourself. Only the One that could work mysteriously could help you.
 

Let’ pray like what our forefathers do in times of desperation and when hope is the only thing to cling on to. For those that are successful and fearless, that what they are are due to their exceptional abilities and talent, there is no need to pray. They are gods themselves and untouchable, and praying is a very silly thing that only the losers will do. God will only help those that help themselves. For those who have, more would be added to them. Amen.

PS. Foe the successful, there is no need to pray for all their wants have been granted. They could even grant wishes if you pray to them. In the mean time keep sneering at the losers.

Dafties used to pray to the God of No Mercy.

Not for fortune or luck but to have mercy on them.

But it seems, his legacy still remains.

Now pray also no use. It is too late for that.

Looks like lots of people are learning how to pray because the good years are not going to be here forever. All around us, countries are growing faster than us and doing better. We have stagnated and looks like degenerating.

Vietnam and Myanmar are the next destination for investors. Even now, you can see that many things, particularly like refrigerators, printers and various electronics are made in Vietnam. They are not standing still in terms of skills development. Don't belittle their backward origins. They will be the next Asean tigers.

Where will we be? Those with higher education, some may only become taxi drivers. what do those with lower education do? Upgrade to be taxi drivers. Skillsfuture? Laughable!

Barn owl visits Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong again, for the third time in five years
http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/barn-owl-visits-prime-minister-lee-hsien-loong-again-for-the-third-time-in-five-years?xtor=CS11-86

I google "owl + omen" and the first line says "Owl sightings and calls can be either blessing or a bad omen. Pay attention to what happens immediately after you see or hear the owl."

Last time after the owl visited, PAP got 70% votes in elections and Chee Soon Juan also lost a by-election, so that visit was a blessing for Hsien Loong.

So this time is it a blessing or omen for Hsien Loong?

Anonymous said...

Anon 9:44 am,

Let me tell u lah, no matter how many times the owl visited Hsien Loong, the Sinkie opposition will still not be strong, united and ready to be govt.

As a result, majority voters will still vote for PAP as the lesser of 2 evils.

So for that, it will always be a blessing for Hsien Loong. And a blessing that really matters, never mind the omens.

And with that blessing, Hsien Loong can handle all kinds of omens, including those coming from his own family.

Right. Could be the 'old man' (omen} coming back to help the dragon prince.

After all, this is the month of the hungry ghost. The old man will bring lots of supporters, not just from his own family.

Opposition better not try to be government. Lots of shit to be cleared.

The problem is not the owl or omen or Ah Long san...the real problem is 70% or more dafts Sinkies keep on voted for the MIWs party to screw them...even if Ah Long go to Hell ( oops roych wood) he will be pardoned by Hades or Hell Lords ( but Ah Long weighs of his own goods or evils deeds will be judge during Judgement Day of the Gods only he knows the consequences...)..

Tiok.

But credit must also go to Hsien Loong for being very smart in handling such omens.

For example, he did not sue his siblings for defaming him, and I consider this very smart handling of the omen.

Of course in the eyes of Sinkies, his reputation is tarnished as a result, but so what when it does not matter?

So what if he wants Halimah to be President, despite all the sneers and jokes from Sinkies about the whole thing, including even those from Malay Sinkies?

That's why u don't see smart Sinkies, for example RB, joining the Sinkie opposition to contest elections, let alone try be govt.

At most RB just criticise PAP harshly and frequently, or support opposition by attending their dinners. I know because one that he attended was publicised.

Anonymous said...

Thot the owl visited the Istana, and the President living at Istana. So why did the state media try to spin saying the bird visiting Hsien Loong ? Why not visiting the ghosts of previous Presidents?

No opposition can take out & overtake the PAPies in Sinkieland.. The only way is the crack of party within PAPies as most probable cause to overrule Sinkieland or Sinkieland being overruled or overtaken by a foreign power ( likely Cheena, UAssh, Indon, Matland..), another possible is Sinkieland already SOLD ..its a Hotel California in little red dot oredi...

That's the problem with Sinkies. They support and attended opposition dinners but they may vote for PAP in elections.

I remember just before GE 2015, WP organised a National Day dinner that was so grand and well attended that even the MSM featured it. But WP nearly lost Aljunied in GE 2015!

Same thing for WP election rallies. Very huge crowds but in the end what happen?

/// The efficiency of the system led to overconfidence, said Lock Kai Sang, engineering professor at the Singapore Institute of Technology and a former member of an Independent Advisory Panel appointed by the Land Transport Authority to assess the rail system’s power supply.

“At a certain point, there wasn’t sufficient attention being paid to the maintenance,” he said. “They were too confident at one point.”

Now, he says, the government and rail operators are putting in a lot of effort to install systems that allow predictive maintenance, designed to stop problems before they occur. ////

The past success of PAP led to overconfidence.
At a certain point, there wasn’t sufficient attention being paid to serving and uplifting Singaporeans.
Singaporean voters became too confident & trusting in the PAP.

Now, 30% of Singaporeans are putting in a lot of effort to pray and kpkb in social media to install awareness that allow for more informed voters; designed to stop unwise voting patterns before they occur.

True or not?

The people saying prayers come true only when they gather wisdom in their heads/hearts when saying the prayers. Common prayers that can change people s fate is the increase in wisdom to uphold group unity peacefully to achieve gains for the group. Many people going to pray at temples asking the deity to bring good health for their family members. This is the fact. When the family members are ping ang, they save medical fees. They gain time to work as hawkers. They gain time to collect waste cans. They gain time to drive taxi, to sew for others, to serve others dinners at posh places. The key is praying gains for the group/family.

Praying gain for sinkieland is impossible to come true. Its beyond reach by the super natural power. The dragon son is far powerful in reach: taxing every possible businesses needs. Cars coe, road erp, water for everyone, electricity for every corner, jobs for mumbia graduates are endless taxing, flats installments to retrieve future cpf to become kosong to pay for pap team in future etc. In sum, all this practices is dragon son s wishes: collect taxes from streams, streaming cash out of sinkieland through salaries monthly to get hard working labor at lowest cost globally. Sinkies thus need to pray for healthy living, its costless.

Sinkies are trapped. The famous saying foreigners create good jobs for locals. Sinkies really believe it will come true. It will not. Foreigners investors are not paying for the high cost to feed the dragons live styles, high pay and big groups of high pay all from uniformed camps. One loss, still not the total loss, was already 4 $billions on a single account shares. It was for long term investment and ended up billions loss. Many sinkies do not read. They do not know that 1 single year total for all this taxes is only about 47 billions. I loss on gambling is 10% loss on total taxes. The next export (exp-imp) is only around 20 billions. This is the current account total. The loss 4 billions cash was not big enough to sinkies to become chilling. Its high cost living on sinkieland. A family with member gambling and spending money lavishly will cause the parents to pray to deity whoever: please stop him. On sinkieland, the trill is to see them growing with more spending.

Keep taxing on land/space, foods, transport, raises the cost. Foreigners still create jobs for locals. They ran off. UN data said Sinkieland was the largest FDI outflow of 56billions in 2014. Between 2013 14, the FDI was almost the same. Less FDI, more jobs giving to foreigners on employment passes, local pmets are sandwich. Good for foreign employment pass holders breakfast and lunch: Sandwich.

Sinkies refuse to vote for opposition. There are diehard saying pap doing so to screw sinkieland justified 70% support. The prayer has not create the wisdom in the people s heart when praying for the future. People needs wisdom. Sinkies are people? Not sure if they continue to vote for lavish spending increasing taxes to force them to the edges of cliff. Investors ran off, foreigners jobs seekers rush in, taxes increases non stop. Lesser income, more bills to pay: prayers without gaining wisdom is nothing, but burning money creating pollution. Go faster at 7th is better. Let the ones acquire wisdom to vote for their children s future.

An old couple was piously burning away money at the road side. You could hear them telling their loved ones that they were sending money to them.

At a short distance there stood a young man, quietly watching them, without moving. The couple saw him but took no heed. Then they saw the young man walking towards them. He came and stood beside the couple, just looking.

After a while he asked the old couple what were they doing. The couple said they were sending money to their loved ones. Then the old couple asked the young man what was he doing alone in the night.

The young man told them he was waiting for his family to send him some money. The old couple looked at each other and the old man tugged at the old women and said, 'Let's go home.' And quickly they moved away without looking back at the young man.

The young man remained standing there. After a while his mother came and handed him some money. He forgot to bring down his wallet to buy something at the 711.

Adapted from a story sent to me by Virgo, I think. Can't remember who.

Not really lah. I work in HR and MOM recently rejected my recruitment for EP holders. Last time I agree they are quite liberal in granting EP.

The govt knows the problem that local pmets are sandwich and they are taking corrective action for some time already.

But for my company, the problem is that I couldn't get local Sinkies of the right calibre for the PMET job, not that I want to recruit EP holders. After all, these EP holders don't come cheap.

Tried already lah. All the same, got rejected when salary offered was $4.5K pm for a specialised technical job.

MOM even gave the reason why they rejected. They say must protect jobs of local Sinkies. They even hinted must pay much more to get locals if necessary.

But how to pay more when no suitable locals even want to apply? By the way, we are a SME company, so there could be an image problem with suitable and good locals. They prefer to work in MNCs, govt or as their own boss.

How To Pray The Buddhist Way

A prayer is a spiritual dialogue between you and your inner self, not to an outer Universal Being, Divine Power, Buddha, God, Allah, Jehovah, or Whatever Label man has perceived.

Praying helps you to center (collect and concentrate) yourself mentally and emotionally.

Soft lighting, candles and scents can help calm you down and bring you closer to your object/subject of prayer.


Step 1:

Settle yourself in a comfortable posture in a quiet place; take a deep breath and be mindful of what is going on around you.

Close your eyes. Focus on the present, here and now. When you feel comfortable and relaxed, sink into your prayer. You have to feel it, not just say it.

Step 2:

Visualize ALL the sentient beings right in front of you in multitude, countless numbers.

Generate loving-kindness and compassion towards ALL of them, not even one excluded.

Envision your thoughts of loving-kindness and compassion reaching them, touching them, embracing them and making them healthy, happy, peaceful and well.

Step 3:

A true Buddhist always starts his or her pray with taking refuge in the Triple Gems, by saying this Refuge Prayer 3 times:

"I take refuge in the Buddha,
I take refuge in the Dharma,
I take refuge in the Sangha,
Until I attain full and perfect Enlightenment.
May whatever merits I have accumulated be dedicated for the benefit of all sentient beings to attain Enlightenment."



Step 4:

Generate compassion from the bottom of your heart, repeat the following prayer 3 times (or as many times as you like):

"May ALL beings have happiness and the cause of happiness.
May ALL beings depart from suffering and the cause of suffering.
May ALL beings have the Bliss which is sorrow-less.
May ALL beings stay in perfect equanimity, without bias to anyone."


Then visualise every organic and in-organic objects dissolve into light and then dissolve into EMPTINESS (like Empty Space) and meditate on this without any thinking of this or that. Stay in this stage for as long as you can.

Arise from this meditation by visualising yourself materialising from EMPTINESS, from a tiny seed in the form of the letter "E".

Step 5:

Conclude by dedicating all your merits accumulated from this practice to all sentient beings:

"I dedicate the merits accumulated through this practice and others to ALL sentient beings for them to attain full and perfect Enlightenment. Sealed."


Notes:

1. Praying is simply a way to connect to yourself spiritually. Buddha is not a creator or god, though some practices do see him as Divine. That said, prayer is not meant as an offering to the historical Buddha but the Buddha inside you. It is, therefore, a way to deepen your own spirituality.

2. If you feel like praying, then you should pray, at any time at any place, and worry about other things later.

3. You can make up your own specific prayers, and think about your own ways to pray, as there is no wrong way to pray. This frees you to practice your prayer and spirituality how you desire it, not how you are told.


MAY ALL BE WELL AND HAPPY!

A experienced CNC programmer, used as example, can get around total $60K.

If hiring flooding village master and doctorate ah neh degree holders, they will go along with lower, may be. That is the reality. If it fit into sme s compensation level, the sme is not productive to hire highly trained tech staff.

In many real situations, sme had intention to do CNC (planned to buy), but give up after hiring ah ned tech masters. The boss saves the money to buy merc. Not CNC.

From ground experience, some prc tech school grads simply resigned and went to Xenzheng factories because sinkies sme tech level was not high tech.

Skilled staff looks for place need complex skills. Overseas staff like ah neh, pinoys also match their training to suit the manual system sme on sinkieland. Sme on sinkieland are hot cakes to pinoys, ah neh grads, not prc tech grads.

Suggestion: 4.5k can use it to hire part time experienced engineers if the production enter high tech levels. There are such pools available.

Unless the sme decided the current tech level suit sinkieland customers demands it might shift to Johor or Vietnam, to produce and ship the products to sinkieland customers. This way make more money and save the problems of staff shortage.

We are willing and can afford to pay well if there are suitable local candidates. Problem is, there isn't.

We cannot and will not pay well for a local if we think he/she is not of the calibre to deserve the kind of pay, can we? Some even fail to answer basic technical questions correctly during interview!

And we need full time experienced engineers, not part time ones.

And for your info, we have tried part time ones before, but they were a disappointment in terms of performance, although they were paid as per your suggestion.

Hence your suggestion has not much practical use, and also shows a lack of understanding of the ground situation of SMEs.

The Dragonfly said...

REMEMBER:

A prayer is always with the positive intention to wish others well.

Never should a prayer be made to extend ill-will and harbour negative intention upon others.

Negative wishes are not considered as prayers. They are your curses. And when you curse others, the curse will always come back to you.

Please be very careful.
