Blogging shall be resumed after two weeks of preparation for upcoming 2008 budget planning in the jungle of cubicles. So many interesting news and gossips been flowed into past thru radio, TV and of course Internet from Vancouver, Korea and around the world.
Where should I resume the paused blog…hmm! One thing I realized that I was tagged (?) over at Looking @ Reflection weeks ago. And she explained that bloggers are writing five things most people wouldn’t know about them, then they turn around and “tag” 5 people and so on. This is going to be really tough challenge to me.First, I don’t think I have very close five bloggers out of zillion…-,,- ; may be on cyworld but not on English blogsphere. Secondly, finding five things to write about me is to be more of challenge. Well with my all respects to looking @ reflection who tagged me, I will try. So the “tag” fun continues.
Here we go,
1. I took “Which Superhero am I?” quiz and found I am Iron Man.
|Inventor. Businessman. Genius.
2. I am also a Devil according to Tarot Card
3.I still haven’t found what I am looking for. Yes it’s a U2 song and my favorite. It took almost twenty years to be one of wild crowds in concert with U2’s 24 fantastical songs. One of my dreams came true when I could feel that the whole crowds are enjoying U2 fever with shouting, jumping, dancing, weeding, singing and crying at GM Place on April 29th, 2005 on Vertigo Tour.
I cried, sang, jumped and lost my voice for a week after the concert. Anyhow, I still haven’t found what I am looking for. Is it in my personal life or in my professional career path or in the relationship that I been connected within my life. What am I looking for? Would I get an answer if I were practicing meditative daily life? Is it a wealth and prosperity? Is it a honor or good reputation from people? Is it a relationship or love? I do not know what I am looking for, clearly. May be I am looking for everyting.
Why JiMong? JiMong (지몽, 之夢) is Korean spelling of Chinese idiom. Originally from 호접지몽 (胡蝶之夢, 蝴蝶之夢), HoJupJiMong. HoJup(호접 ,胡蝶) means a butterfly and JiMong(지몽,之夢) means dream of ~. HoJupJiMong (호접지몽, 胡蝶之夢) is my favorite Chinese idiom took from the Daoist book Zhuangzi (莊子) was named after the famous philosopher in ancient China. It’s in the Chapter 2 (제물론 齊物論 qí wù lùn – Discussion on Making All things Equal) of the book.
The butterfly dream usually called “Zhuangzi dreamed he was a butterfly” (莊周夢蝶 Zhuāng Zhōu mèng dié).
Once Chuang Chou dreamt he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with himself and doing as he pleased. He didn’t know he was Chuang Chou. Suddenly he woke up and there he was, solid and unmistakable Chuang Chou. But he didn’t know if he was Chuang Chou who had dreamt he was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming he was Chuang Chou. Between Chuang Chou and a butterfly there must be some distinction! This is called the Transformation of Things.
然胡蝶也 自喩適志與 不知周也 俄然覺 則
然周也 不知 周之夢爲胡蝶與 胡蝶之夢爲周與
周與胡蝶 則必有分矣 此之謂物化
That’s where I got JiMong (지몽, 之夢).
There goes JiMong’s Five things.
