Understanding Karma - Wisdom & Perception - Tsai Wenchin

Understanding Karma - A Focus On Wisdom & Perception
Tsai Wenchin
Saturday September 9   10:30 am
      Mr. Tsai has indicated his discussion this week, while still addressing Karma, will contain a focus on wisdom and perception. How we perceive our circumstances forms our happiness or despair.
      Pretty much everyone is troubled by a number of things about his or her life circumstances and interactions with other people. We are very limited by our senses of sight, taste, smell, touch, sound, etc. Everyone lives in their own world and views everyone else from their own perspective. We expect others, including our life partner, to understand us and agree with our views and behaviors. We constantly judge others by our own perceptions. 
Tsai's presentations have been attempting to make us conscious of our biases in perceiving others through our own limited lenses. By understanding our own and others limitations we can reduce the anger and annoyances of our reactions and thus build a more positive karmic response. Developing our understanding helps us develop more positive karma and move us a bit closer to enlightenment. Tsai says if you follow this you will become the master of your life. This material is not religion but rather life philosophy.

Miracle Pillows Available

Happy Healthy Living
Miracle Pillows Available
at
Mountain Palace
Due to popular demand, Lacy has made more Miracle Pillows which are now available. 

Miracle Pillow is stuffed with fresh jasmine
 tea for healing and wellness purposes
 
Poor posture is a main cause of neck and back problems. Especially they are caused by an improper pillow as we spend about one-third of our lives in bed. Many people keep changing several pillows overnight and still have neck pain, headache, mid back and even low back pain and feel tired in the morning. Correct pillow height and filling are key to preventing these health problems.
Lingzhi Cai, M.D., Ph.D. designed the Miracle Pillow based on her medical background, traditional Chinese medicine theory and her life experience to try helping people who are suffering from these problems. Each Miracle Pillow is handmade by Dr. Cai.
Miracle Pillow is filled with five pounds of fresh Jasmine tea.  This unique material is hard enough to support the head and neck muscles and loose enough to exactly conform to cervical curvature.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) View
  In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the head is regarded as “the house of essential substance”, essence from the organs are gathered there, and blood and qi (vital energy) always flow through it. Thus, the head serves as the highest center for regulating functions inside the body. Since we spend one third of our day sleeping on a pillow, Miracle Pillow can make the properties of jasmine tea enter through the head. Jasmine tea has a very pleasant aroma which helps tranquilize, refresh and dilate the local blood vessels leading to harmonizing the internal environment. Jasmine tea has several healthy benefits including stress relief, lowered cholesterol and high blood pressure, arthritis and joint pain relief, cardiovascular health, diabetes improvement, gastrointestinal disorder reduction, increased immunity and cancer prevention.  Miracle Pillow not only fixes your neck problem but also is suitable for headache, insomnia, anxiety, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, diabetes, etc. 
  Miracle Pillow will take all pressure off from your neck. It is not fully filled to give you room to adjust to your needs. It makes you feel very comfortable and  relaxed and has a very pleasant aroma.  You can throw all of your other pillows away and have a sweet dream with Miracle Pillow! 

We received very good reviews from people who got Miracle Pillows 
 
 They said they felt so comfortable when they slept on it. They had a very good sleep without changing pillows throughout the night without any neck pain or headache the next morning. They reported having more energy at daytime and being more productive to get things done. 
 
Miracle Pillow - $45

Plants that repel bugs!


Are you an insect magnet? If you aren’t, you probably know one. Insect magnets attract annoying insects the second they walk outdoors — or so it seems.
If this describes you, take comfort in knowing that one of the ways you can fight back against mosquitoes, gnats, flies, no-see-ums and other pesky bugs doesn’t have to involve covering yourself with a sticky spray or engaging in chemical warfare. To help you enjoy going outdoors, try strategically placing insect-repelling plants in your garden or on your patio.
