My Tai Chi Journey

 Personal development is an on-going journey. Like the negative habits and attitudes that we acquired through the years unaware, it would also take years to finally conquer our long-lost self. There is no magic to it. There are no short-cuts. We need to develop step by step because this is the way of nature. If we plant something, we need to water it daily, nurture it and provide its needs until we harvest the fruit of our labor.

On my way to physical healing, I will do everything just to regain my normal health again. Starting this week I am doing Tai Chi. I read somewhere that it could help the nerves. That is what I did. After days of practice, I notice a positive effect it has on me. Thus I have been looking forward to mastering this art and skill. Presently, my chosen mentor is Dr. Paul Lam. I like his training videos. They are done step by step and easy to follow.

What about you. What is the ritual you employ as part of your personal development? Hope you find the right one that works for you.

Get happy!

Eye Of The Sahara

This is the Richat Structure, also known as Eye of the Sahara. This is a prominent circular feature in the Sahara desert located at the west-central Mauritania. Wikipedia describes this as a deeply eroded, slightly elliptical, 40 km in diameter dome. The sedimentary rock exposed in this dome ranges in age from Late Proterozoic within the center of the dome to Ordovician sandstone around its edges. The sedimentary rocks comprising this structure dip outward at 10°–20°. Differential erosion of resistant layers of quartzite has created high-relief circular cuestas. Its center consists of a siliceous breccia covering an area that is at least 3 km in diameter.

 Some scientists believed this to be created by an asteroid that hit Earth many, many years ago. But geologists have found a lack of any credible evidence for shock metamorphism or any type of deformation indicative of a hypervelocity extraterrestrial impact. Some also believed this to be a result of volcanic eruption. Again, it was also unsupported due to the lack of defining characteristics of volcanoes. The reigning theory is that this is the result of differential erosion of a geologic dome, a circular anticline revealed by slowly shedding layers under the erosive power of wind-blown sand. 

One thing is only certain, God created this enigmatic structure that is clearly seen by astronauts in outer space. This is a characteristic of God's mystery and magnanimity. We don't have to explain everything that God created. We would only be awed and be amazed and be happy for all things beautiful and wonderful.

Get happy!
