Hints as to Health

A. Preliminary Remark

A while ago, I wrote this article in German. The article you are reading now is a free translation of it, which I make available here as I needed to translate it anyhow. While many of the links may lead to German websites, you may be able to understand their content by using e.g. Google Translate.

The article discusses some questions of health, for which the right diet is something to be considered.


Malaysian Dictionaries and Grammars Online

It is incredible how many Malaysian dictionaries and grammars you can find online at archive.org. Although they are rather older, I hope they can help (be careful with the spelling in the first one, though), as I have read the Malaysian language has not changed that much.

I will see whether this is true.


Learning through Joy

I just heard the new talk (July 2011) of Eckhart Tolle, with Marianne Williamson as a guest, author of, int. al, the book “A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of  ‘A Course in Miracles‘”.

Quoting or referring to the Course in Miracles, she mentioned something, which actually, I noticed, I seem never, for my own “spiritual” life, to have considered: It is up to us, whether we learn through joy or through pain. While as a language teacher, I have always maintained that joy in learning was important, it seems that, as to the spiritual path, I had lost awareness, that we do not need to learn through pain, but that we can also learn through joy.
