Repeat after me:
“I will never complain about my weight again.
I am thankful that I have a healthy appetite and I can eat whatever I want….”
Health is Wealth.
Until we don’t have our health, we don’t truly appreciate what our money cannot buy: Health.
That is another reason why, when we practice Feng Shui, Health is at the center of the feng shui LoPan (Feng Shui Compass); a reminder for us all that Health is the center of everything else: wealth, career, family, relationships, etc….
Yesterday, I met with one of my clients, for an annual review.
We had a good time talking about organic gardening, about our foolish younger days, etc.…. Then, he was telling me about our mutual friend that I haven’t seen in ages after he re-married and moved out of San Diego. I remember our mutual friend quite well, he was vibrant, active in sports, played tennis, jogging. He took care of his body because like me, he believed our body is our temple….
Fast forward, he now had a disease, and no cure.
He is blessed to be alive because of the medical advancement in America. However, now, he cannot eat foods that he loves like Pho, Rice, or any solid food.
My friends told me that when they meet him at a restaurant, he could only dip his chopsticks into a bowl of Pho for the broth.
So, please be grateful that we can eat, and taste food, a simple blessing that has been denied to so many.
In Viet Nam, we have a saying:
“Ăn được ngủ được là tiên”. Loosely translated,
“If you can eat, and if you can sleep, then you are already in the heaven.”
