Chit Chat Corner / With Faith Prayers Will Be Answered
« Last post by prayer42 on Today at 11:21:31 am »
2017 was a challenging year. My business which paid rental for the office unit could not continue the rental payments due to partnership issues. I prayed to Guan Yin Bodhisattva to lease or sell my office unit at a good price. After 6 months, I became increasing worried as there was no potential tenants or buyers. I began to question my faith. When I despaired, the Dharma Door chat group sent a discourse on praying to Guan Yin Bodhisattva to lessen our burdens. Not once, but twice. I strenghtened my resolve and continued. After another 3 months, there was still no potential tenant or buyer. Then the Dharma Door chat group sent a discourse on karmic obstacles. I then realised it was my own karmic obstacles that was causing this situation. I then prayed to Guan Yin Bodhisattva that I will accept whatever outcomes that is deemed correct. I made new vows. My heart felt lighter even though my husband continuously pressured me to solve the rental issue fast. I carried on my recitations and little houses. Finally after another 2 months, a tenant is confirmed for 2018. My deepest gratitude to the Greatly Merciful and Greatly Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva, Master Lu and all volunteers who faithfully send selected discourses through the chat groups.

A 26-year-old Chinese rooftopping enthusiast has been confirmed dead more than a month after the popular online star abruptly stopped posting videos on Weibo.

Police said Wu Yongning fell to his death from the 62-storey Huayuan Hua Centre, one of the tallest buildings in Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, on November 8.

The rooftopping challenge had come with 100,000 yuan (US$15,000) in prize money, his family were quoted as saying by Xiaoxiang Morning Herald on Saturday. No details were given about who the sponsor was.

Wu, from Ningxiang in Hunan, worked as an extra in films before turning to a career in rooftopping. He began posting his daredevil exploits on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, in February. With more than a million followers, Wu regularly featured in advertisements on social media and live-streaming platforms.

His girlfriend, identified only by her surname Fu, called police on November 9 after he failed to return, The Beijing News reported on Monday.

Young people spend a lot of time on social media. They’re also more susceptible to peer pressure, low self-esteem and mental ill-health. A number of studies have found associations between increased social media use and depression, anxiety, sleep problems, eating concerns, and suicide risk.

Certain characteristics of social media may contribute to these negative effects.

Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying has been linked to depression, anxiety, social isolation, and suicide. Compared to “traditional” forms of bullying, cyberbullying can be witnessed by a larger audience, the perpetrator can remain anonymous, and the victim may find it difficult to escape.

Social media platforms have taken steps to address cyberbullying (such as Facebook’s “bullying prevention hub”), and almost all social media content can be reported to site administrators. But many victims don’t seek support, and research suggests 71% of young people don’t think social media platforms do enough to prevent cyberbullying.

Yes.... take personal responsibility instead of abrogating this to the FA/FC who may not always have your interests at heart ....

BTW, what do you think of Universal Life?  Can hoot or not? Good?

UL is a flexible account which can be customize to suit the client's needs.

Its good but it also depends on what are your priorities.

I will always get to know my client first before recommending them a product as what is good for one may not be so suitable for the other.

Many factors such as priorities, life stages can affect the suitability of the products for an individiual .

I would strongly recommend to get the basics like Hospitalisation plan, protection plans in place before planning for savings / investment / retirement. Can get a hybrid of both like a whole life plan as well with cash value and protection.

If budget is limited, at least have a hospitalisation and term plan in place first.
