12 things I want to do in 2009 for a better life

By Jeffery Seah | Blog , Inspirational , Road to becoming ME

Just having passed my 41st birthday… and now its going to be a brand new year starting tomorrow.

That’s the good thing about having a birthday sandwiched between Christmas and New Year celebrations… everyone is still in a celebration mood all week and tends to be more generous and cheery. 🙂

What does breezing past 40 means to me? Well….

  • It feels more airy on my head…. no longer was the prime real estate of my head overpopulated with hairs.
  • I have a preference for bigger font size now…. if it gets too small, my once-upon-a-time Sniper “one shot one kill” eyes just refuse to cooperate.
  • It takes more effort and discipline to keep my physical body in peak condition. Having refrain from exercising for the pass 6 weeks due to a shoulder injury, I could see muscle atrophy at an alarming rate.
    • my chest could no longer fill a B-cup bra… it’s as flat as the airport runway.
    • my arms are as slender as a woman’s
    • my belly loses its definitions and show signs of pregnancy.
  • Sex was a journey of conquest, it is now a journey of bonding.
  • I feel more at peace and present.
  • What I lose in physical ability, I gain in mental capacity.
  • I understand that the Main thing is to keep the Main thing to the Main thing.

And in 2009, which will be tomorrow, here are the 12 things I want to do for a better life…

  1. Sit in silence and quiet the mind for at least 10 minutes each day. Make time for meditation.
  2. Read more books than I did in 2008.
  3. Dream more when I am awake.
  4. Don’t compare, don’t judge.
  5. Don’t win every argument, agree to disagree.
  6. Forgive everyone for everything.
  7. Understand that however good or bad a situation is, IT WILL CHANGE.
  8. Believing that THE BEST IS YET TO COME.
  9. No matter how i feel, get up, dress up, show up and CHEER UP.
  10. Give something good to others each day.
  11. Spend time with people over 60 and under 6.
  12. If others can do it, I too can do it, if others cannot do it, then I MUST do it.

Wishing all an abundant year ahead. May you find joy in giving, fulfillment in sharing and peace with everything. Happy New Year.

Samurai’s night out

By Jeffery Seah | Blog

Six weeks. Yesterday was exactly six weeks since I came back from Enlightened Warrior Training. And I was really glad and happy to meet up with my fellow Samurai Warriors last night.

And thanks to Lee, we had an excellent venue for our gathering. The food was good, the ” how are you” , “what have you been doing since EWTC”, and the catching up was great.

But what I enjoyed most was the warrior energy… I could feel the POWER of Samurai Warriors in the air,  when we chant our warrior declarations on the roof top…
each and every warrior speaking without reserve,
with so much force and strength,
believing in every single word we say,
proclaiming to the whole Lorong 1 Realty Park and beyond,
the attitudes of a true warrior.
I think we rock the estate big time. Any Samurai reading this, do you think so?

How I truly wished the Sufi dance could be much much longer. Quite honestly, I wasn’t able to connect deeply with everyone. I wished I could feel the same way I had felt back then in EWTC when doing the dance.

Warriors, when we meet again, let us give the dance more time. Let’s bring up all the love in us and experience the feeling of being connected as One, once again.

Let us purge all our hatred, disappointment, resentments and upsets with our fellow humankind, faced in our daily life, with our Sufi dance.

” To handle yourself, use your head,
to handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only 1 letter short of Danger,
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault,
If he betrays you twice…. it is your fault”

We had fun sharing all round about our takeaways from warrior camp. And while everyone was sharing, I was reminded of what Harv said once, “ the NO. 1 reason why people don’t get what they want in life was because….

” They don’t know what they want”

I should be pressing on to finish up on my resolutions and goals for 2009.

There is a saying that ….

Small minds discuss people
Average mind discuss events
Great minds discuss Ideas

Hey, I was a bit of everything last night… 🙂

To all the Samurai warriors that were not able to join us last night, you were deeply missed.

And warriors, when are we doing our next SA-SA-SA-SAMURAI and SEXMURAI again???
