Xiu Cai Dreams

In ancient China, there's a Xiu Cai(someone who passed the lowest level of the civil service examination, usually at the village level) who will take state exam for the third time in the kingdom capital. He stay at the inn that he used to occupy, two days before the exam he had a dream.

The first dream was that he was growing chicory on a very high wall. The second, when rainy day in addition to wearing a hat, he also use an umbrella.

This Xiu Cai thinks that his two dream have a very deep meaning. He immediately seek a fortune-tellers to help clarify the meaning of his dreams. After listening the Xiu Cai story, repeatedly patting his thigh, the fortune-tellers say, "You better go home. Think of it, to plant vegetables on a very high wall is very difficult? Wearing a hat and umbrella on a rainy day, wasn't it doing something too much?

Hearing this description, the Xiu Cai feels down to take the exams. He back to the lodge and packing to return home. Seeing this the innkeeper was very surprised. "Isn't the test tomorrow, why are you going home?"

The Xiu Cai told him about his dreams. The inn owner said cheerfully, "Ah, I can also explain the meaning of the dreams. I suggest that you should not go home yet. Planted on a very high wall means chosen with the highest score test? Wearing a hat and umbrella on a rainy day, means you have proper preparation and you will not fail?

The Xiu Cai feel this explanation is very plausible, because of that he eagerly take the state exam. He got third rank.

Why Shouting?

A teacher ask his students, "Why when someone is in anger, he will speak in a loud voice or shout?"

A student after thinking long enough raise his hand and answered, "Because he has lost his patience."

"But ..." the teacher ask back, "someone he talk to is thus beside him. Why shouting? Can't he speak more gently?"

Almost all students gave a number of reasons they think correctly. But none satisfactory answers. Then the teacher said, "When two people in anger, the distance between their heart become very far although they are physically so close. Therefore they are shouting."

"But strangely, the louder they shout, the more they become angry and their heart distance itself become even further. Because of that they had to shout more loud."

The teacher continues, "On the contrary, what happen when two people love each other? They speak soft and gently. Even with a small voice, they can hear it so clearly. Why is that?", the teacher ask.

They seem to think it through but none dare to give an answer. "Because their heart so close. In the end even without a single word. Just stare at each other is enough to make them understand what they want to convey."

The teacher continues, "When you're in anger, don't create a distance between your heart. Moreover, you should not say words that cause distance between you. Perhaps in that time, do not say a word may be a wise way. Because time will help you."

Grateful For Anything

You must be grateful for anything that happen to you. This is not a matter of luck. Grateful leads you to always get rid of the negative side of life.

Others may say that you are not realistic. But, in fact you are much more realistic, which is freeing yourself from anxiety over mistakes.

Grateful encourage you to move forward with enthusiasm. Nothing lighten your life other than it. The more you are grateful the more you will receive. The more you deny, the heavier the burden that you bear.

Most people more fixated on past failure and than deny it. Few see the success and grateful. Because, you will never succeed with grumbling and complaining. Success happens because of trying.

Every tries you do because you see the positive side. Only with grateful it will appear in your view.

Coffee vs Tea

Some people choose to drink tea instead of coffee because it's considered unhealthy. But for coffee lover, coffee can give greater energy in the morning. So which one is actually more healthy, coffee or tea?

For centuries, coffee has been praised for having a refreshing taste and healthful. Coffee stimulates the blood flow in the brain and reduce mental fatigue. This is why coffee has the ability to revitalize in the morning.

But when you want to compare which one is better between coffee or tea, then the answer depends on the type of coffee or tea to drink and how you process them.

Tea generally contains antioxidants called flavonoids, this substances have been proven to help slow or inhibit the rusting of cells in our bodies.

For tea lover, the majority wanted to drink tea with darker color, brewed longer. The longer you brewed the tea the caffeine content will be higher. So if you compare it, coffee will be much healthier than black tea.

Two large cups of coffee, or 300 milligrams of caffeine per day, can improve a negative mood. Drinking coffee appears to reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease, coffee drinkers have about 3 to 6 times lower risk of developing the disease compared to non-coffee drinkers.

Coffee vs Tea
Research into the chemical properties of coffee show that a cup of coffee contains potent, protective antioxidants, which inhibit the rusting of cells in our bodies. Oxidative damage is associated with diabetes, arthritis and cancer, among many other health issues, and antioxidants are helpful in reducing the risk of some diseases and cell life.

Coffee is especially high in one group of antioxidants, flavonoids. These compounds exhibit protective power against cardiovascular disease by reducing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, or the bad cholesterol. So, coffee protects against heart attacks and strokes.

But if you’re drinking green tea, which is simply tea that hasn’t been fermented, then I would probably have to say that green tea is the healthier drink. It’s rich in flavenols, which are lost when the tea is fermented. The bottom line, if you’re talking about coffee and black tea, coffee is the healthier choice. If you’re a green tea drinker, green tea is the healthier choice.
