Improving Life, Karma, and Feng Shui.

One of the first thing that I learned in the process of achieving the good life aspect of Project 168 is a way to improve my karma and Feng Shui. It’s actually very easy, just sincerely try to do good for other people without broadcasting it to the world. And while the higher cost is to do good for others, its okay to be selfish at the start and do it to feel good and to help earn good karma.

I started doing this by donating to different charities, but soon it progress to something where I’m more involved and not just giving out money. You can even do it by helping a child or a old person cross the street. Start with small things and soon you’ll see that you’re no longer just doing it to feel good, although it will always make you feel good, but also because you understand that it’s for a higher cause.

Remember Feng Shui and any religion like Christianity, Taoism, Buddhism, are useless unless we become better person ourselves and contribute to the good of all mankind.

Numbers does not rule my life. But if there’s a number that may play a big influence in my life that is 168. You see, about six months ago, when I went into a gym and had a weigh in and body mass index reading, I found out that I was already type 2 obese, and if I’m not mistaken there are only 3 types. In fact, I need to shed about 43% of my total body weight. I’m 5’5 and my ideal weight would be 165lbs, but according to my trainer since I’ve already accumulated so much skin by stretching it too much because of my fats it’s ok to just settle with 168lbs to 170lbs. (Internal monologue at that time was 5lbs of skin!) That’s’ the reason why I’m calling this blog Project 168 because that’s my ultimate weight goal. However, being a Chinese Buddhist and a believer of Feng Shui, 168 is also considered as a celestial number that is suppose to be really lucky. Thus Project 168 also refers to my quest to have a good happy life and to be a good student of Chinese Buddhism. A word of caution though, growing up, my parents firmly believed that the next super language is not English but Chinese. Thus special focus was given for me to learn Mandarin, in fact, I was send to Taiwan on summers to further learn the language. The big disadvantage is that I’ve such a poor commando of the English language that surely you’ll see some grammatical errors in every post. However, I still decided to write this blog in English to be able to share this with people who are also trying to lose weight and who are like me are in a quest to constantly live a good life. This blog is not me talking to the world but its me sharing my experience to whoever would want to read this so that it might help them, and more important than that people might want to share with me also their experience that it might help in my quest to lose weight and also to constantly have a good life.
