A surreal experience after watching Everything Everywhere All At Once

A surreal experience after watching Everything Everywhere All At Once:
https://listed.to/@alphalim/34834/a-surreal-experience-after-watching-everything-everywhere-all-at-once

I was at OWL making my specs this afternoon, when a young woman comes in and says to me, "Excuse me, where is shop number 36?"

I looked at her dumbfounded. Was this a trick question?

Then the optometrist who was attending me said to her, "Uh, pardon?"

The young woman snapped to and said, "Uh, Starbucks?"

"Oh, just go straight there and go upstairs," said the optometrist, gesturing with his hand to the escalators.

The thing is, when I saw the girl walk into OWL, I was thinking, Sonia? Because she looked exactly like my friend Sonia, who herself is a twin.

Then when she opened her mouth and asked me the question, I was further thrown off balance. Why ask me, when I was sitting at the counter with various spectacle frames in front of me? Surely she could surmise I was a customer? Why not ask a security guard or the optometrist - someone who worked there - or the freaking INFORMATION COUNTER just outside OWL?

So my thought process was, Okay, not Sonia. Probably not Sonia's twin either. Does Sonia have a triplet that I didn't know about heretofore?

Then there was the actual content of the question itself. Why ask for the lot number instead of just saying, Excuse me, can you point me to STARBUCKS?

It was a surreal experience, especially after watching Everything Everywhere All At Once, a movie about a middle-aged woman who suddenly finds herself in the middle of a perilous mission to save the multiverse, with thousands of versions of herself in parallel universes, each one slightly different than the others.

Am I in the middle of an adventure to save the multiverse? Are there thousands of "me"s out there? I don't know, but I'm pretty sure there's at least three Sonias!

Are there really thousands of mes out there?

The most likely conclusion is that this woman saw me and was so awestruck by my handsomeness that she felt compelled to ask me, the least likely candidate to enquire from, and my handsomeness fried her brain so that she asked for the lot number instead of one of the most recognisable brand names in all the world! Yes, that's the most logical conclusion. The other one being that the multiverse is real and there are thousands of versions of each of us bumbling around in parallel universes.

My WHY I'm doing insurance

My WHY I'm doing insurance

https://whyinsurance.netmark.pro
https://listed.to/p/CD568DQWGt
I was in the doctor's office, looking at his PC screen with the ghostly MRI scan of my brain on the screen.
"These scans satisfy the criteria for stroke. It is claimable under the 36 critical illnesses," said my neurologist. Alas, my insurance lapsed years ago. It was a wake-up call to me of the importance of insurance (and of keeping your policy in force).

So, I've made it my mission to empower all my friends - and anyone who will listen - with insurance protection.
This is my WHY.

Also, selling insurance is an excuse to meet up with friends.
Some people make friends as an excuse to sell something.

1. I'm selling insurance as an excuse to make friends.

2. Malaysia's insurance penetration rate is only 48%.

More than half of Malaysians have no insurance protection. Meaning, one medical emergency can plunge an entire household into poverty! As if the average Malaysian isn't struggling enough as it is.

3. The M40 and B40 groups are the most underserved when it comes to insurance protection.

I am offering affordable insurance policies that provide protection for the financially vulnerable in case of accident or critical illness and loss of income. I'm also offering an income opportunity together with the insurance policies.

  • Do you have insurance?
    If not, let's meet up!

  • Or do you know anyone who's underinsured and you're worried about them? Refer them to me and if they buy a policy from me, you can get a share of my commission. "Your leads, I work." And you get rewarded.

Acupuncture feels like this

Acupuncture feels like this

https://listed.to/@alphalim/34728/acupuncture-is-like-this

Acupuncture is nothing, lah. Like antbite.

Well, not exactly. More like a mosquito bite. If the mosquito is a Decepticon a hundred times bigger than a natural-born mosquito. Then its proboscis would be about the same size and material as an acupuncture needle.

Actually, it's like a swarm of ten to twelve decepticon mosquitoes. Because that's how many needles are used for a session.

And then these Decepticon mosquitoes could route their electrical energy in through their probosces. But they're obedient to you and will turn up and down the intensity of the electric current that's running through their probosces in through your muscles according to your direction.

"Does it hurt?" Adeline asked me after the first session.

This little piece is my answer.

Actually, my answer was, "It feels as if someone were sticking long metal needles into you."

I don't subscribe to the "It's nothing one, lah. Like antbite." school of deception.

I'd rather paint a realistic picture for you.
It feels like being pierced by long, slender needles.

Thing is, it's really good because the feeling after treatment is just heavenly.

There are two types of pain in life. The pain of regret and the pain of discipline. Acupuncture is the pain of discipline and growth.
In Malaysian parlance, it is syiok.

Thoughts on Good Friday from as I sit in my church's Bible study room waiting for service to start

Today is Good Friday and Francis Raj shared the old "Watch the Lamb" video with me. It's very moving. Thank you Jesus for your love and sacrifice.

And then "Thank You for Giving to the Lord" autoplayed. Another great song. Very moving. Puts things into perspective.

It reminds me to examine WHY I do things.

And why is that? Why am I doing insurance?

I'm doing insurance because:

1.I really believe in it and

2.I really love my friends.

So, because of this love for my friends, I want to empower them with as much insurance cover as they can afford. Because, as much as we want to keep safe and healthy, "Malang tidal berbau," as the Malay proverb goes. Tragedy visits unannounced. That's why it's a tragedy. If we were prepared for it, it would only be an inconvenience, not a tragedy.

Insurance is all about managing risk so that in the event of a loss, insurance would indemnify the insured - that is, to make whole, to bring the insured back to pre-loss financial standing.

So, because I love my friends so much, I want to make sure they're covered with insurance protection to the tune of hundreds of thousands or even millions of ringgit, in exchange for premiums of onlyhundreds or thousands. That's a return of hundreds or thousands of times. I love leverage. I love using OPM (other people's money) that's why the insurance industry turns me on so much. I had previously read about strategies like OPM. Now I'm actually in the arena, doing it for real.

There are few certainties in life... But death is one of them. So, everyone should leverage this certainty with a kick-ass insurance policy. I almost feel sorry for Prudential. They have to pay out millions of ringgit while collecting hundreds or thousands of ringgit in premiums. Ah, well, I only almost feel sorry for Prudential. They're a large corporation with many prudent actuarial scientists working behind the scenes (pun fully intended). Besides, they're collecting those premiums from hundreds of thousands of people. Mathematics is magical!

Anyway, it really turns me on that for premiums of hundreds or thousands, people can set their future offspring up for life, when they take out a life insurance policy on themselves, or even an insurance savings plan.

Turn your job into an instant estate with assets of your own for your Legacy! You can do this by taking advantage of the leverage of insurance.

You can work hard to make a million bucks, or you can take an insurance policy to turn what the devil meant for evil into a windfall for your family.

"Into every life a little rain must fall,"goes the old lyrics. It's not certain that everyone will be struck with a critical illness. But it's probable, especially as age takes its toll. So, first of all, stay healthy. Eat well, sleep well and exercise. And guard your thoughts and feelings, too. Do all that good stuff and control what you can control. But then, make sure you're covered for things that are seemingly out of your control.

It's interesting how you can live each day fully when you're prepared for your death. That's the Stoic philosophy for you. "Memento Mori."remember you will die. In the old days, the Roman soldiers would keep a literal _memento of death, such as an enemy human skull, to remind themselves that they will die.

The Epicureans believed that meaning was found in the full experience of life's pleasures.

The Spartans believed that meaning was found in embracing hardship and toil.

The Ascetics believed that meaning was found in the denial of all life's pleasures.

But the Stoics believed that life is inherently meaningful, and that the remembrance of one's own death freed one's day-to-day life up in unimaginable ways, to live freely, unencumbered by anything: To live a life of service to one's own dependents and society at large.

It's amazing, the freedom you experience and the enjoyment in everyday life you feel, when you're aware that you will one day die, embrace that fact and prepare for it. "You're already naked" is the way Steve Jobs put it in his famous Stanford commencement speech.

Such are my thoughts, this Good Friday evening as I sit here in church listening to the singers and band get ready out in the sanctuary. Not forgetting the sound technician as well. I can hear the production crew preparing as well. Everyone tends to forget the soundman. I remember when the Integrity Music team came to town many decades ago, and conducted worship workshops. There were sessions for worship leaders, musicians and soundmen.

"You're worms," the workshop leader said to all the soundmen gathered. "If not for you, the whole show would go down. But nobody remembers you - except when something goes wrong. Then the whole congregation would turn around and look at you."

As much as soundmen are overlooked, I imagine that soundwomen have it worse. Nobody expects a woman to do three sound.

So, on this Good Friday where we remember that Jesus washed his disciples'feet, join me in applauding the soundmen. And doubly so for the soundwomen!

How to use a crutch - and why I value listening in the sales process

To rely on something unreliable is worse than to rely on nothing at all. Because, if you have a broken leg that's in a cast and you're walking around with a crutch, if that crutch breaks, there goes your leg. It'll have to be set again, to say nothing of the pain of breaking an already broken leg!

So, if you rely on something, test it with a partial load first, to make sure it can withstand the full load. Then, each time you're using it, consider it a retest of the reliability of that crutch - or whatever it is you're relying on.

On the matter of crutches, they can be an aid or a hindrance to healing. It just depends on how you're using it, which is an emanation of WHY you're using it. Are you using it as s prop to do what you couldn't otherwise do? Or are you using as a replacement to do what you previously could do?

Your WHY makes all the difference. This is true of the saying "religion is a crutch."

So, what is my WHY for insurance sales? It is a prop for my favourite thing: listening and connecting with people, and helping them get to their goals in life.

I truly listen. You might have the world's top artist paint a mural for you, but what's the use if he just repaints a mural that he's famous for?

What if he's famous for painting horses but you want a mural of giant pandas?

What if you need a surgery on your foot but you're talking to the world's foremost neurosurgeon? Sure, there are transferable skills between brain surgery and foot surgery, but only to a limited extent. If the brain surgeon applied his expertise to diagnose your foot problem, he could be of help- or at least know how to refer you accordingly.

That's why I value listening.

To me, sales is not so much about telling you what you need, but it's about asking you what you feel you need, to discover what you really need, and showing you the solutions I have available, to help you ideally to answer your needs.

And that, to me, is a beautiful and powerful thing.

Doctor Law said that I need to lose weight.

2021-11-04, Deepavali

Due to physical imbalance, I fell into a drain in front of Pizza Mansion in Section 17, Petaling Jaya
Sustained minor injuries - bruises and abrasions to skin

Facial injuries: Lost face in the minds of the customers who were enjoying their coffee at Butter+ Beans next door to Pizza Mansion.

2022-01-2x

Went to my GP for the first time in 10 years because of tachycardia. He said it was normal and nothing to worry about and took a basic blood test. Results: all markers normal, except:

  • cholesterol was a bit high but still within range
  • sodium was a bit low but still within range

So he recommended I exercise regularly to the point of not being able to carry on a conversation while exercising, and to drink less water, which seemed to have been flushing out the sodium and diluting the blood.
As of 2022-03-12, tachycardia is resolved. Now my heart rate is about 85 BPM.

2022-02-01, Chinese New Year

I fell down at home after a shower, when I was drying myself. It was free fall onto my trampoline's steel frame, which had a thin cushion covering, which connected with my rib cage, which has a thin meat covering. Needless to say, it hurt.

2022-02-22

I fell into a drain while walking in my apartment compound, due to loss of balance and a barking dog.
So I decided to see a neurologist.
Sustained minor superficial damage to the elbows and knees.

Today's acupuncture session (the third) was a doozy. I came out of it knackered and slept like a baby.
Well, 3 down, 15 more to go
noticeable improvement in left hand - can open to 80 degrees
Noticeable improvement in mental clarity when I played Peak today (Peak is an app for brain training)

2022-03-13, acupuncture session #4

Doctor said to go through three courses of treatments (18 sessions), and I could probably go back to the office next month, in April. Yay. I could probably drive as well. He'll advise as the date approaches.

Doctor's path of recovery:

  1. Heal up
  2. Recover previous mobility
  3. Go back to office routine
  4. Make money 😂
  5. Maintenance, to avoid recurrence

Asked the doc about "transcranial direct current stimulation" offered by ReGen Rehab Hospital (mentioned by the neurologist), he said it was a lot of money for not much results. He said my recovery is covered by acupuncture and physio, which I felt was the case. The acupuncture treatment involves needles and electric current in my scalp and face. I choose to turn that up!

2022-03-14

Session at 3 pm later.

Will turn up the current.

Turned up the current. It was nice.

After the acupuncture session, I went with L____ and Adeline to view his two apartments for room rentals, (which I'm helping him to market)[https://www.facebook.com/DreamRooms-for-Rent-in-PJ-for-Single-Adults-or-Students-109235781715258].

2022-03-15

This morning, I noticed significantly increased balance in walking short distances (in my apartment), so I'm grateful.

Left hand can open almost 100% compared to right hand.

2022-03-16

I asked the doctor to pay attention to my left hand dexterity today, and he poked needles into my left forearm and into the fleshy part between my thumb and forefinger. And one in my left front, above my left chest.

Today, my left hand is almost like normal. It's quite remarkable.

I also replicated the effect with the TENS machine this evening.

Now I shall go to sleep, after listening to music and feeling my feelings.

Hey, for lunch, we da-baoed from Dream Café, which we hadn't been to in a long time. It was an exceptional meal. Chicken chop with aglio olio and carbonara. Nice.

2022-03-17

Today, I noticed a significant improvement in my left hand again. Can open easily, and I noticed easier everyday use as well, such as putting on clothes and walking.

Yesterday, Adeline was sharing with a friend how Shawn Bolz, a prophet of God, was ministering to Street prostitutes and asked one of them, "What do you feel is God's dream for you?"
She closed her eyes for a moment and then she said, "I feel God wants me to be a chef." The prophet then asked her what's the next step she needed to take to end up at that destination. Long story short, she called her uncle and returned home (she had run away from home) and eventually ended up owning her own restaurant. I admired that clarity and I asked myself, What do you feel is God's will for you to do? and I came back with the answer, "Salesman." Which surprised me. But if you think about it, sales is the ultimate service. You match a prospect's real need with real supply, for which the prospect is grateful and parts with his money. It's a win-win-win situation.
I go into why I've decided to do insurance here:
https://whyinsurance.netmark.pro
There's something beautiful about it. Yesterday, I spoke to A___ about the Prudential Elite Development Programme (previously known as the Entrepreneur Development Programme). Today, I'm speaking with S__& about the EDP. Adib's agency only offers takaful products, so he advised me to seek out a non-Muslim agent if I wanted to sell both Takaful and conventional products. So I did a LinkedIn search of my network and rediscovered S___, whom I've known since she was in high school, as a part of FCC when I used to minister there to the youth a few times.
Nothing is lost.
The love you give comes back to you, multiplied.

I'm actively looking for a less stressful job now. I no longer want to deal with the stress of the advertising industry.

2022-03-22

Today, I officially gave up on the advertising industry. The high-stress environment I think contributed to my stroke and now, poat-stroke, I certainly don't need the stress.

So, I signed up as a prospective insurance agent. Why insurance? Because this ordeal has made me realise the importance of insurance, and of keeping it inforce. Mine lapsed yonks ago
And while God and his people have been generous, I wish that money could have gone to better use, i and it could have, if I had insurance to pay for my treatments.
I go into why I chose insurance sales more at:
https://whyinsurance.netmark.pro

Secondly, the only certainty in life is that we're all going to die. We don't like to think about it, but that is the fact. Not all people get sick and die, but 100% will die. Preferably of old age and in our sleep, but we will die. _Memento mori is a tenet of the stoics. "Remember you will die", and it will enrich your life.
So what if it's a certainty that you will die?

Think: Do you ever wish you were born into a rich family?

Well, you can do that for your kids. Take out a life insurance policy on yourself and bequeath a large sum to your descendents.

  1. That's why I decided to sell insurance. Because it will help those who need it, but you need to get it before you need it. And -who knows? - maybe you won't need it.
  2. And, your children deserve to inherit a large sum. You can create a legacy of generational wealth with your death. Sorry to be morbid, but your death is a certain thing - it's just a matter of when.

There's also a beauty to sales. When a successful sale has been made, it means that you've solved someone's felt need to such an extent that they feel grateful to give you their hard-earned money. It's a win-win-win. It's a win for the client, it's a win for the company, and it's a win for the salesman. And it's also a beautiful way to serve people. Because they have to part with their money, it's almost guaranteed that they won't fritter it away frivolously. So the help you give is valuable help.

That's why I love sales.

So,
1.
equip yourself before you need it.
2.
And set your descendents up for generational wealth.
3.
Let's talk about it. Contact me.

Today, I went to see S______ of Elevat8 agency and I met her manager C& and her father F___. They were all ex-FCC, now attending RLC. It was nice and a pleasant surprise, like a mini FCC reunion.

2022-03-23
Today's milestone: I flushed the toilet after me, instead of leaving it for Adeline or Seth to flush. (The flush is broken, so we're using a bucket of water, which is heavy. Today, I felt strong enough to lift and tip the heavy bucket of water.)
I noticed greater agility and control of my left hand today, in switching on and off light switches and opening and closing doors.

Yesterday, after meeting S___, C___ and F______, I felt the presence of God and the guidance of the Lord in a very strong way. I hadn't felt that close presence of Spirit in awhile. Truly, birds of a feather flock together. I felt like I found my tribe. Of course, I'm constantly seeking my tribe. I felt that excitement as well after connecting with SDK 1. Well, I received the sad news that Dr David Wong had passed on, yesterday.

"How may I help you today?"

Imagine being paid to make money. That's what this EDP is.

But you've gotta know your why.

My why is to alleviate suffering and worry from people around me. My why is to create generational wealth and to help people create generational wealth.

My why is to use the only certainty in life to set the next generation up on a higher plane. To level up the playing field for the next generation, so to speak.

That's my why for Prudential insurance sales.

I'm grieving Doctor David Wong right now.

Memento mori. It's the only certainty in life. But people generally live in the present moment as though they will live forever.

Where is eternity connected to time? Does eternity begin where time ends, like two ropes tied together? No, eternity is connected to time like the hub and spokes of a wheel. The hub is eternity and the wheel is time. Where the rubber meets the road is the present moment. The spoke from the hub to that part is where eternity meets time. Eternity is connected to the present moment. So only decisions in the present moment affect eternity. "Behold, today is the day of salvation. Now is the chosen moment." "Choose ye this day whom you will serve."

Today, make the decision to look into life insurance and make your kids millionaires when you depart this timeline. Death is the only certainty in life. Memento mori.

"The only certainties in life are death and taxes."

There are strategies to defer your taxes and living healthy can defer your death, but eventually death comes for us all.

Being aware of this helps us to live more fully in the present moment. And make better choices in the present moment.

So, whether your death comes by accident this week or many decades later in your sleep (which I pray is the case), the fact is you will die. So use your death to set up your future generations for life. After all, don't you wish you were born into generational wealth? You can begin the tradition of generational wealth for your descendents. It can start with you. Make the decision in this present moment to take out a life insurance policy on yourself. Remember you will die. How would you like to die? Healthy and in your sleep is the best way to go. Live fully until your death. And let your death, which is inevitable, be a cause for celebration for your survivors. Make them rich. You know the toil you've been through. Didn't you wish you had a head start in life to to help you along? Leave that behind for your children and their children.

Yes, a million dollars a few decades later isn't going to buy what a million dollars buys today. But what if that million dollars down the line can buy half as much as today?

What if you had half a million dollars today? You can give your children that headstart in their lives down the line.

This is a big part of why I'm doing insurance. I'm doing it for our kids. Yes!

The other part of why I'm doing it is to alleviate suffering and worry as a result of risk of injury, disease or loss of income capability.

I just noticed today that my eyes are no longer intensely tired like before.

Just finished a Zoom with Judy and JaneGano, who was a cancer specialist in conventional medicine decades ago, and has been in integrative medicine for the past 21 years.
She asked me to go to her centre and do a scan.

I'm excited for that.

She said I can afford to destress more.

Today, I want to sign up for the test, and to send my papers to Sabby.

Today, I have sent my stuff to Sabby.i haven't managed to sign up for the exam, tho'. I shall do that tomorrow.

Tomorrow, I have multiple deadlines. I shall take it in stride. I shall breathe, and I shall enjoy the day. Amen.

I am a prolific, independent, best-selling author of stories that entertain, inspire and transform to glorious life in Christ, from which my readers derive great value and for which my readers show great gratitude by reading thousands of pages a day and paying me thousands in ringgit, dollars and bitcoin, amen.

I shall study and master the curriculum and access the exam, the PCE exam. And I pray thou make me a great success, and because I'm a success, anyone around me shall succeed as well.

I put the insurance matters into your hands. You lead me into a good land, a land flowing with milk and honey, in which there is gold and iron ore.

Yahshua, I look to thee to heal me and to prosper me and to use me as thy channel of life and blessing, amen.

I dedicate my body and physical presence on earth to thee, for you to live thy dream life through me.

Imagine if someone were completely paralysed and they just could watch the world go by. Imagine what thoughts go on in their head. They would wish they could do stuff. They might even envy the people of earth.

They might even chide those who were paraplegic for bemoaning their lot. "You're half mobile!" they'd think. "Give thanks, be grateful and use your half mobility to do something! There are people who are completely paralysed!"

I imagine that's how God would be on one level, having no body.

So,, I offer my body as a living sacrifice to thee, for thou to live your dream life through me. I pray that you would show me what your dream is, and show the world through me how to live like a GOD. Amen.

I'm living in a tropical paradise with my wife and son, and I'm thankful for it

I'm a prospective Prudential wealth planner. An "insurance salesman."

I'm an insurance salesman, a Prudential wealth planner. Why?

  1. Of obligations. I "need" cash flow to fulfill my obligations.

  2. Of necessity. I need to focus on my recovery and rehab. "Wouldn't it be great if someone just sponsored me with a monthly stipend that covered all my obligations and I could just focus on my treatments and meditate and worship?" I said to myself. "Yeah, who's going to do that?!"my mind replied. Anyway, I put this invention before the Lord and he showed me the path and led me down it. I contacted an old friend and hooked up with the Prudential Elite Development Programme, previously known as the Entrepreneur Development Programme. They'll match your salary for one year with a monthly allowance. In return, you need to make a certain quota and you'll receive the commissions on your sales. So the idea is that before the year is up, your commissions will more than cover the allowance, and you'll wean off it and have your own insurance business.

O3. Of realisation. Because of my recent stroke, I realised the importance of having medical insurance and of keeping your policy in force by keeping up your premium payments regularly. I've made it my mission to tell everybody who'll listen about this.
:

  1. Of inspiration. Do you ever wish you were born into wealth? It's impossible to go back in time and choose wealthy parents, but you can create a legacy of Wealth for your progeny. Take out a life insurance policy for yourself and when you "shuffle off this mortal coil," you'll leave behind a new legacy of generational wealth. It's in your hands. Pay it forward. You can be the change you seek. You can be the patriarch you wish you had.

  2. Of certainty and wisdom. Memento Mori." "Remember you will die." It's the only certainty in life. Use this certainty for good. Leverage on this only certainty in life and make a change for your progeny. You can be the first of a new lifestyle for your family. You can break the cycle of poverty and toil. Pay it forward. Be the patriarch you wish you had. Be the benefactor you wish you had. Be wise and turn the sure thing of your death into a brand new thing for your posterity. They'll thank you when they meet you in the afterlife. Jesus said to use temporal riches to build up sternal rewards in heaven. Use your money to enrich and bless people. This is how you turn temporal riches into eternal wealth.

Of course, the best way to go is healthy and old and in your sleep. I pray that will be the case for you. Buy whether that's how you go, or even in a plane crash, if you take out a life insurance policy on yourself, you will set up your progeny for life. And, God forbid, should critical illness befall you, let your insurance policy pay for your treatments. I'm grateful that God has provided amply for me through his generous people, but it remains true that those funds could be put to better use, if I had insurance cover for my recovery and rehab.

2022-03-25

The electrified needles range in intensity from an itchy mosquito bite to a post-exercise ache to an ache from blunt force trauma like getting punched or kicked.

During today's acupuncture session, I had a vision of myself running in a grassy field flapping my arms like I was about to take off in flight. Haha.

If you're in a plane and the oxygen masks suddenly drop down, the most selfless thing you can do is to put yours on first. Secure your oxygen supply, then you can help with the children, elderly and disabled.

I feel that my job for now is to heal myself first, so that I can heal others next.

Make sure your oxygen supply is secured. If there's no emergency, practise breathing daily by meditating. Focus on your breathing while letting your mind ascend to things above (this is the meaning behind the name "themindscendence") for twenty minutes. If you can't do twenty minutes, do two until you can do twenty.

For now, my "job" will be:

  1. physio morning and night,

    1. acupuncture once a day,
  2. Meditation morning and night, and

4.studying for my insurance agent qualifying exam(PCE).

  1. Plus meeting up with old friends and family to celebrate life.

  2. And now I am ready for lunch. Later in the day, I wish to practise driving.

Some thoughts on pain during the acupuncture session just now: There are different kinds of pain. The pain of discipline. The pain of regret. The pain of growth. These taste different. The pains of discipline and growth taste bittersweet. The pain of regret tastes bitter. As biological beings, we instinctively avoid pain but are drawn to pleasure. We can train our minds to recognise bittersweet pain as pleasure, so that we'll seek it out. If we indulge in the pain of discipline and growth enough, we'll avoid the pain of regret.

Create a new relationship with pain.

This sounds like a BDSM relationship. Submissives need discipline. It's good for them. It's sweet pain, that's why they do it. People outside the relationship don't get it. Just like people outside gym culture don't get why people would want to punish themselves. Same for marathon runners.

There's an inside language that is not understood by outsiders.

I sold tell Brittany that I'd like to see her alone. I wonder what that'd do to her state of mind?

Maybe nothing. Maybe she'd also like that. Should we do it?

Do what? Have procreative sex? Definitely not. Have non-procreative sex? Maybe. Meet up and talk about truth? Definitely.

So, I just signed up for the PCE exam just now. Cynthia called me and Jason walked me through registering for the exam. I don't think I'd figured it out if not for Jason's pointers. The design of the website is totally non-intuitive.

I have 3angle work to do, and I have MpCoPy work to do.

I shall do those after this.

Come on, the hundred words more. What can I write about?

I can write about my harem. I choose to embody dominant masculine divine energy. And I choose to sponsor a harem for my feminine girls, where they can express their submission without shame and the denigration of this upside down feminist society.

They can instead choose to exercise true submissive femininity as a response to my dominant masculine divine energy. And as they exercise their submissive feminine divine energy, they will in turn elicit a response from dominant masculine divine men. To their happily ever after.

I am doing a valuable service here.

I don't know how three logistics of this harem will work out, only that it will. I submit it to God's hands.

Teenage girls might seem too young to this upside down world, but they're already getting along in age. There going to be adults soon, increasingly set in their ways. There's not much time for them to learn the submissive feminine divine ways.

If they embrace the sweet pain of discipline now, they won't have to taste the bitter pain of regret later on in life.

I choose to seek out the sweet pain of growth and discipline now. I choose to mete out the sweet pain of growth and discipline now. It is my service to my girls. And to all for whom I'm responsible.

I am creating a huge, hard, healthy body, an embodiment of pure dominant masculine divine energy, a reward and safe space for my submissive feminine divine girls.

I have no idea how this is going to work out, only that it is going to work out.

I have a vision, a mission and am intention for my submissive, feminine divine girls. That they might grow in their femininity and their submission, to their happily ever after.

I have been taking a paste concoction since I met up with JaneGano on Zoom the other day. The concoction is meant to clear up blood vessels and restore the flow of blood to the capillaries. The recommended dose is one a day for the first week, then two a day for the second week, then three a day for the third week. Since starting this for a week by today, I noticed my left hand is remarkably accurate in pressing switches. Is this because of the botanical paste or the punish
Physio or the acupuncture? Or is it a mixture of both? Practically, I don't care which is it, because I see improvement in my state. That's what's most important. Scientifically, the outlier for this week compared to last week, is the botanical paste, which itself consists of five ingredients: noni juice with Roselle, lion's mane mushroom, Hong T, soirulina and one more ingredient.

2022-03-27

Yesterday was a tough day. Left hand seemed to have a setback. It seemed as if I lost control of it. I couldn't even press the light switches. Plus, I had a fall in the acupuncture centre yesterday, just inside the door, on the smooth floor, thankfully. Then I felt the pain in my left rib cage, which I had sustained injury on 1 Feb.

Memento Mori. Death is certain. What is uncertain is how each of us shall die. Well, I choose to die healthy and old and in my sleep. So be it, amen. That's what I choose to create, but as a safety net, I'll buy the GLG. And then Adeline shall buy the PruWealth Plus from me.M120 monthly for a half million ringgit payout on death, to set up Seth for life. That's cool. Who wouldn't want that? People who don't know about it. People who aren't eligible, like me. Is it true that I'm not eligible? I should confirm with Sabrina. Yes. Do it. You can do it. I am grateful that I did not knock my head yesterday. I am grateful that I can still hobble around with my stick. I'm not wheelchair bound. I am grateful that I can breathe and I can eat and I can go to the loo of my own accord. Amen. I thank thee.

I thank thee for beauty in the world. I thank thee for my family, my friends, my downlines, my customers and my prospects!

I'm feeling quite down, because my body doesn't work as it should, not at 100% capacity. Yet, I thank thee that it's infinitely above 0% capacity! And there are stroke victims and paraplegics who would look at me with envy, and I don't want to let them down. I'm going to get up our of my sickbed, and walk my way out of sickness into running, jumping health in the sun! For those who are looking at me and for Seth, and my dependents to come.

I'm feeling good right now, because I just bought a Great GLG policy from Gabriel, so if I die two years or more from now, Seth will get RM250K. That should give him a head start in life. Now I can die in peace. Now I can live in peace. But I aim to live till 80, and die healthy of body and sound of mind, in my sleep. Like Smith Wigglesworth.

Ha. I pray that thou wouldst make me a successful man, and because of me, all in my team, my uplines anddownlines, and my circle of friends and family.

I am a channel of God's blessing in this world.

I am a Prudential wealth planner candidate. What does this mean and why?

This means that my day job is to study and ace the PCE exam for insurance agents.

This means I will have another platform to bless my friends and family, the people around me.

This is because, with my recent stroke episode, I realise the importance of having medical insurance and keeping it in force.

I realise the importance of buying insurance while you're in good health.

I also daydreamed, Wouldn't it be nice if I were born into generational wealth? And I realised it was too late for me to be physically born again, but I could do something to set up my son for life, to give him a headstart. Memento Mori. There are few precious certainties in life, and the only certainty is that I will die. How and when I shall die remains to be seen (I choose to die aged, healthy, and in my sleep, like Smith Wigglesworth), but it is certain that I shall die. I can use this certainty to pay it forward and give my son a headstart in life with a life insurance policy (The "poor man's inheritance."). For a premium of hundreds of ringgit a month, I can leave a million or more for him when I die.

A life insurance policy determines what you will leave behind when you die.

Health and wellness products Android services will help influence how and when you will die.

Memento mori. Remember that you will die. Only then can you carpe that that diem.

2022-03-29

I realise now that recovery and rehab is a full-time job, so I shall focus April to June on recovery and I shall be cutting back on other jobs.
I shall reserve my work days to acupuncture, rehab, physio, writing and inner work.

Just back from the last acupuncture session of this first cycle. Today, I learned something. Too turn up the intensity to the point of pain, then dial it back a bit. I feel like I've just got the hang of how to self-service the treatments, in these last three sessions.
Adeline had a chat with the doctor. He told her I had just begun to heal, and should carry on the treatments. So we signed up for another cycle of treatments. Then one of the nurses told Adeline that some patients did two sessions in a day, with a half-hour break in between, because they lived for from the centre, so did not want to travel every day. Interesting. Can consider that.

I realise to my chagrin, that I would fly off into a temper tantrum that would make a two-year-old proud. This illness is unearthing some deficiencies in my childhood. Some feelings of abandonment. I choose to outgrow those feelings right now, amen. And outgive my caregivers, especially Adeline.

"There are many benefits"

2022-04-01

Today, I asked Dr Law about the difference between one session every day and two sessions every two days. He said that two sessions every two days was preferable, soi did two sessions today, separated by a half-hour break. First the left side, then a break, then the right side. It felt special today. After the acupuncture session, we went to deliver things to Jackie and she passed me a pack of Cool Treats through Adeline because she said people in my position would be stressed and need a break. I opened it and it turns out that it was vanilla soft serve coated in a chocolate shell. Incidentally, I was watching Moon Knight with Seth last night and he was carrying a box of Belgian Chocolates. I said to myself, I'd like to eat chocolate. I felt that the flavonoids or whatever inside the chocolates would do my healing good. Then this afternoon, I received chocolate coating soft ice cream. Note exactly what I'd like to eat (I shall go get some tomorrow), but the chocolate-coated ice cream looked like the Belgian chocolates in the show last night. In the car, I was praying for God to show me his support, and when I finished praying, Adeline came into the car with the Cool Treats from Jackie!
So, yeah, today was a special day.

2022-04-05

I passed the PCE exam today, and can now officially sell insurance.

What this means is that I shall be meeting up with friends to catch up, talk about life, and talk about the wealth pyramid. I want to insure them against the mistakes I have made, and I desire that they may benefit from the strategies I've recently had my eyes open to, because of this stroke.
So, what the enemy intended for evil, Good turns for good.

2022-04-10

As of yesterday, I noticed that I could do the hand-swinging qi gong exercise again, so that's great!

2022-04-30

Much improved typing!

2022-0-01

Wow, my typing went from 11 to 17 wpm this week!

you can blame "them" or ...

Maybe "they" should have taught you these things in school, but "they" didn't.

So, you can blame "them."

Or, you can educate yourself.

Dollar-cost average your life every day

When I look at this BTC price chart, I feel happy.

Why? Because I'm dollar-cost averaging every day.

Every day, I buy X ringgit of bitcoin - and certain other cryptos.

So, on the days that the price is up, I'm happy because my holdings are up.

On the days the price is down, I'm happy because I managed to buy more crypto for the same amount of money spent.

How we spend our days should be the same.

Have your daily practices and keep at them - no matter what.

Don't try and give a heroic effort at change when you're feeling up, or give up when you're feeling down.

Don't try and "time the market" and "get lucky" with your life development as a person.

Just plug away steadily and with the same, small measure of energy every day.

On days when it's easy (the price is down), you'll achieve more.

On days when it's hard (the price is up), the small contributions you made in the couple of weeks before will carry you through with momentum - and it'll feel easier than it really is.

Just have your daily practices written down (don't leave it to memory that can disappear on bad days) and execute them in small, regular measures every day.

You'll be surprised at how far you've come in just a couple of months.

Trust me, you can do this.

One small energy-cost averaging of your life every day, and you can be a different you in less than a year.

Don't believe me?

Imagine if you ate a small bag of chips every. Dang. Day.

Wouldn't your life change (for the worse) in a couple of weeks?

Now, imagine if you read - out loud - a chapter of a solid book every. Dang. Day.

Wouldn't your life change for the better in just a couple of weeks?

Yes, it would.

And yes, you can!

Tell me, what small thing will you do every day?

You want to be the dumbest person in the room

I'm quite sure that you've heard the advice before, that your level is the averge of the five people you spend most time with.

Eric Worre of the Network Marketing Professional, has a hot take on that.

You want to be the dumbest person in the room, he says. You don't want to have a posse.

Because, if you're the lowest person in your group, they'll pull you up by association.

But if you're the highest person in your group, they'll pull you down by association.

Having a posse is nice for the ego, but it's counterproductive to progress in personal growth.

On the other hand, high performers also know this. So, they'll be wary of letting a lower-level performer into their inner circle, because they'd tend to bring them down.

In other words, you need to create, make, produce something that's worthy of associating with people higher than yourself. And it's not a comfortable feeling, to grow upward.

On the other side, it's very comfortable to decay downward. Very comfortable.

However, to grow is infinitely more satisfying than to decay.

It is worth it, in other words.

What could you contribute, to earn your way into the inner circle of people whom you consider to be ahead of you on your path to success?

My finger is sore

My finger is sore.

No, not the whole finger.

Just one spot where the corner of the fingernail digs into the flesh of the fingertip. I cut my nail too short.

Consequently,

My finger is sore.

It's not noticeably swollen or red, just tender.

But,

My finger is sore.

And that's all I can think about.

Well, not really. I go about my day, but I have a little nonverbal voice in the back of my head going, "Notice me, notice me."

If I allow this voice to distract me from my workaday tasks, then I would derail more important stuff for a tiny discomfort.

If I ignore this little voice and carelessly bash my finger against something in the course of my day, then the tiny sore may become a fullblown infection necessitating the shelving of my workaday plans to attend to this new urgency.

What is the moral of the story?

I'll send $1 in BSV to the first satisfying answer.

The most selfless thing you can do is to put in your oxygen mask first

2022-03-25

If you're in a plane and the oxygen masks suddenly drop down, the most selfless thing you can do is to put yours on first. Secure your oxygen supply, then you can help with the children, the elderly and disabled.

I feel that my job for now is to heal myself first, so that I can heal others next.

Create a new relationship with pain

2022-03-25

Some thoughts on pain during the acupuncture session just now: There are different kinds of pain.

  • The pain of discipline. -The pain of regret. -The pain of growth. These taste different. The pains of discipline and growth taste bittersweet.

The pain of regret tastes bitter.

As biological beings, we instinctively avoid pain but are drawn to pleasure.

We can train our minds to recognise sweet pain as pleasure, so we'll seek it out.

If we indulge in the sweet pain of discipline and growth enough, we'll avoid the pain of regret.

Otaku know this. Gym freaks know this. It's an inside knowledge. To those outside the circle, those inside the circle seem to be crazy. Those on the inside of the Fifty Shades of circle understand this.

Create a new relationship with pain

To succeed in life, overcome your passion avoidance instinct by subverting it. And how you subvert it is by recognising that some pain is bittersweet, not just bitter.
Bittersweet, which means it is sweet. Like dark chocolate, like black coffee, like certain herbs. Seek those out, embrace bittersweet pain. If you indulge in that kind of pain enough, the bitter kind of pain will naturally leave your life because it has no place to find a home in your life. That's the pain of regret. If you embrace the pain of growth and discipline, you'll have no place for the pain of regret.

When the ideal is enemy of progress

Anything worth doing is worth doing well. But if this gets you into perfection mode and hinders you from doing anything at all, then "good enough" is better than "ideal."

Because anything, even mediocre, is infinitely more than zero.

Recently, I've been practising sitting in silence for fifteen minutes at a time. Sometimes it goes well. Other times, it's a struggle. Like today.

So instead of sitting still for fifteen minutes, what if I sat still for one minute? That's much more doable.

Then, after one minute of silence, I sit for two minutes. Then, three. Then, four. By the time I'd sat for five minutes, that's a cumulative fifteen minutes.

It's less than ideal, because it's fifteen minutes interrupted by four pauses. Versus fifteen minutes uninterrupted. But it's infinitely better than zero minutes spent sitting in silence.

When the ideal becomes the enemy of progress, do the minimum rather than nothing at all.

You can always improve something. If you give the universe nothing to work with, you have nothing to work with.

This is why "he who has, even more will be given to him and he will have an abundance." But he who does not have (really, he's blind to what he has, so in his reality, he doesn't have), even what he has will be taken away from him.

Just Look (It) Up!

"Don't Look Up" is an awesome movie if you like comedy. While watching it, I remembered watching a YouTube philosopher expound on the difference between "nascence" and "ignorance." To be nascent is to be in a state of pre-knowledge. You just haven't been presented with the facts yet.

To be ignorant (or ignore-ant, as he pronounced it for emphasis) is to ignore the facts that we consider inconvenient.

Nascence is innocent, if naive. Ignorance kills.

The premise of the movie is that there's a killer comet heading for earth but most people can't be bothered to do something about it because of ignorance. They're too preoccupied with the media and entertainment and politics.

So when the comet enters within sight of planet earth several months later, the people are split into two camps: the told-you-so "Just Look Up" faction and the "Never Look Up" camp, which is a fascist mix of government and a mega corporation.

The "Just Look Uppers" want you to look up because they want you to fear, the President says, so just don't look up. There's nothing to see there. So she wants you to believe.

I tell you, there's a perverse feeling that arose in me, thinking those Just Don't Look Uppers deserve what's coming to them. Soon it will be apparent, whether or not they Just Look Up. Of course, the same fate befalls all earthlings in the end.

I notice with amusement that with the addition of one word, the movie is a mirror of what's happening in our world today.

The fascist government-corporation complex is yelling "Don't Look (It) Up! Don't Look (It) Up! It's all a conspiracy theory!"

And on the other side, the voluntaryists are yelling "Just Look (It) Up! Just Look (It) Up! It's plainly evident if you just look with your own two eyes!"

In this life, it's not a question of whether I will experience heartache. It's a question of what I will do when when faced with heartache. It's not wise to live as if there will never be rain, because there will be rain. It's a question of preparing for the rain. Maybe even using the rain for my benefit. Because rains have benefits. They bring life.

And so maybe heartache brings life, in some roundabout way. Expect there to be heartache. Let it fill your jars. Pour it on your soil and let it germinate your seeds.

The soil is the bullshit that life shovels at you. The seeds are your hopes and dreams, your aspirations and thoughts of a future life to come.

Spend time every day showing your seeds in the garden bed of life's bullshit. Then water it with the accumulated heartache and disappointments of life. And watch your garden come to fruition. Take, eat, share, sell.

Prosperity Is Life's Natural State

Prosperity is life's natural state. Prosperity is not absence of lack or want, but rather an internal celebration of abundance which is always present and available to us.

Happiness, joy, and satisfaction are really just different aspects of prosperity. They are manifestations of our internal state of being. Beyond having our needs met to a certain level, it doesn't matter how much we have materially - what matters most is how we feel about ourselves and about life in general. When we feel good about ourselves and our circumstances, when we feel happy or joyful or deeply satisfied, this is prosperity.

It goes beyond the thrill of the moment. True happiness and joy are eternal. You'll feel happy at the end of your life as you feel in the moment.

If you scammed someone, there may be a thrill in the moment, but that feeling will sour soon, and be a bitter memory at the end of your life. That is not prosperity.

Live in alignment with what is important for YOU. Your higher being. Living in alignment will allow for an increase in the natural state of prosperity.
