I am a girl from Dalian,a beautiful and coastal city . When I decided to attend college in Xi’an, all of my friends and family were astonished. “Why would you go to the west to Xi’an?” “It is poor, dirty, and crowded there!” But no matter what they said, the charm of the city had become a magic power that had captured my heart.

When I arrived at Xi’an and left the railway station, the spectacular city wall came into view. Suddenly a great wave of excitement ran through my body. “This is the city in my dream!” Though the sky is not so blue, the road is not so clean, the air is not so clear as in my hometown, I was very satisfied with the city that I had chosen to complete my 4 year college degree until something happened. My phone was stolen while I was on the bus. At first, I thought it was my carelessness, but when I heard that 10 of my 40 classmates also lost their phones during the first semester, I was overcome with anger, an anger at the contemptible thieves who did such a thing, an anger at the city that allowed this to happen to me. The civilization and culture of Xi’an are highly admired by people all over the world. And I could not imagine such a respected city had such a disrespectful part which could destroy its moral and profound tradition.

While I was very confused and upset, many of my friends called me, they were all complaining…Poor traffic in Beijing, bad weather in Shanghai, expensive food in HK, unbearable coldness in Harbin, and heavy rules and laws in Singapore… We were all dissatisfied with our cities. It seems that as students had gotten into the habit of complaining about the city where we are studying.

Gradually, I realized that the city is just like people. No one is perfect, neither is the city. We love Xi’an because of the ancient history, Beijing because of it as the political center, Shanghai because of its fast-developing economy…We can not ask one city to have all wonderful things just as we can not ask our lover to be perfect.

I remembered once I asked my boyfriend, “Which part of me attracts you most?” “All”, he replied.

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s give up complaining about the cities. Why can’t we be tolerant enough to accept both the good and the bad parts of the city just as we accept our lover?

Next time if someone complains about the bad security in Xi’an and a lost mobile phone, I will tell them, “Only a few people in the world have the opportunity to live in the city with the terra cotta warriors and the magnificent city wall, and you are really lucky to be one of them, just accept Xi’an as she is with all her beauty and shortcomings.”

Love the city the way you love your lover.

 
 

 

 

When Pain Comes Our Way

Honoring All Experiences

Honoring the experiences we have in our lives is an invaluable way to communicate with life, our greatest teacher. We do this when we take time at night to say what we are thankful for about our day and also when we write in a journal. Both of these acts involve consciously acknowledging the events of our lives so that they deepen our relationship to our experiences. This is important because it brings us into closer connection with life, and with the moment. Only when we acknowledge what’s happening to us can we truly benefit from life’s teachings.

It is especially important when pain comes our way to honor the experience, because our natural tendency is to push it away and move past it as quickly as possible. We tend to want to brush it under the rug. Yet, if we don’t, it reveals itself to be a great friend and teacher. As counterintuitive as it seems, we can honor pain by thanking it and by welcoming it into the space of our lives. We all know that often the more we resist something, the longer it persists. When we honor our pain, we do just the opposite of resisting it, and as a result, we create a world in which we can own the fullness of what life has to offer.

We can honor a painful experience by marking it in some way, bringing ourselves into a more conscious relationship with it. We might mark it by creating a work of art, performing a ritual, or undertaking some other significant act. Sometimes all we need to do is light a candle in honor of what we’ve gone through and what we’ve learned. No matter how small the gesture, it will be big enough to mark the ways in which our pain has transformed us, and to remind us to recognize and value all that comes our way in this life.

Remembering To Pause

Beyond Reacting

We have all had the experience of reacting in a way that was less than ideal upon hearing bad news, or being unfairly criticized, or being told something we did not want to hear. This makes sense because when our emotions are triggered, they tend to take center stage, inhibiting our ability to pause before we speak. We may feel compelled to release the tension by expressing ourselves in some way, whether it’s yelling back at the person yelling at us, or rushing to deliver words of comfort to a friend in trouble. However, there is much to be said for teaching ourselves to remember to pause and take a deep breath before we respond to the shocks and insults that can come our way in life.

For one thing, our initial response is not always what’s best for us, or for the other people involved. Reacting to childish rage with childish rage will only escalate the negativity in a situation, further ensnaring us in an undesirable dynamic. Similarly, when we react defensively, or simply thoughtlessly, we often end up feeling regret over our words or actions. In the end, we save ourselves a lot of pain when we take a deep breath and really tune in to ourselves, and the other person, before we respond. This doesn’t necessarily mean we don’t say anything, although in some cases, that may be the best option.

Some situations require a fairly immediate response, but even just a moment of grounding ourselves before we do so can help enormously. The next time you find yourself wanting to react, try to pause, and in that pause, take a deep breath. Feel your feet on the floor, the air on your skin, and listen for a response to arise within you, rather than just going with the first thing that pops into your head. You may find that in that moment, there is the potential to move beyond reaction and into the more subtle and creative realm of response, where something new can happen.

 

Growing Pains living in city like living in any place

living in big cities, it can be very challenging to maintain a positive attitude and a measure of faith when you are in the midst of difficult times. This is partly because we tend to think that if the city loves us we will experience that love in the form of positive circumstances. However, we are like children, and the city is our wise mother who knows what our mind and body need to thrive better than we do. Just as a young child does not benefit from getting everything he or she wants, we also benefit from times of constriction and difficulty to help us grow and learn, like housing problems, schooling and traffic, and so many. If we keep this in mind, and continue to trust that city loves us even when things are hard, it helps us bear the all difficult time with grace.

This period of time when we are in beginning of city life is full of difficulty, and you may feel less alone knowing you are not being singled out. There are extreme energy changes pulsing through this period at every level and, of course, we are all part of the growing process and the growing pains. It helps if we remember that city life is one phase after another and that this difficult time will inevitably give way to something new and different. When we feel overwhelmed we can comfort ourselves with the wise saying: This too shall pass.

At the same time, if you truly feel that nothing is going right for you, it’s never a bad idea to examine your city life and see if there are some changes you can make to alleviate some of the difficulty. Gently and compassionately exploring the areas giving you the most trouble may reveal things you are holding onto and need to release: unprocessed emotions, unresolved transitions, or negative ways of looking at yourself or reality around you. As you take responsibility for the things you can change, you can more easily surrender to the things you can’t, remembering all the while that this phase will, without doubt, give way to another.
