Wordly Things that Makes Life a Little Better (1st Post): The Internet & Is it Bye Bye Cell Towers?

One of the things that Buddhism and Taoism teach is for us not to be materialistic. Worldly things serve as hindrances and/or barriers to understanding or attaining the dharma.

However, I think there are worldly things that makes life a little better if we use them properly.

Just today there are two online articles about worldly things that may make life a little better.

First is about the Internet, more specifically the proliferation of the social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. As the article states if used properly it may help people propel into positive action. I’m talking about the Egypt uprising we’ve all followed the past weeks. Try to find time to read the article.

Second, on the list is we MIGHT soon say goodbye to those ugly cell towers that also helps in destroying the environment. It’s still too early to say whether this will really happen but do take time out to read the article.

About jefftan168

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.
