Old vs New

When I looked at these old switches, it reminds me that the old and new are the same things. Old and new implies time. It’s duality of time. They can be vertical or horizontal. It doesn’t matter because it is just a timeline.

It is how we choose to see the timeline that counts because the one who perceive time changes her/his reality and information of time.

I can say that my last year self is old because this year I am new, or I can choose to see that this year I’m older than last year. One perspective makes me new and the other makes me old. Perspectives change how we feel duality through our emotions.

New and Old is just a cycle. We change on the surface of time. Embrace it. Be conscious of it. Only then, we become peace with time.

Pain, The Greatest Teacher Part 1 & 2

Recently I spoke to my editor from The Iskandarian/WAVES Lifestyle newspaper about turning my articles into audio materials. The idea is to cater people who prefer listening than reading. Furthermore, I have many articles from past years that is still useful for the audiences. And she gave me the green light to start the project. 
 
The articles are short. The published articles contain about 300 to 310 words, and the audio comes with three minutes video. So I geared up yesterday for recording and editing. And today I have two videos to share.
 
My first pick is articles (two parts) about Pain, The Greatest Teacher. No one likes pain. However, if we are willing to acknowledge our pain and be with it, the pain we feel can teach us many things about ourselves and Life. 
 
Remember that even pain has a quality, and the quality of the pain depends on the quality of observer. 
 
Enjoy the videos.
