    By people sharing knowledge/info publicly, the info itself does not devalue to become "common internet data which lacks credibility and needs verifying". If everyone thinks in this way, nobody would want to share anymore in order to protect the value and integrity of their knowledge.

    If-
    Rudyard Kiping

    If you can keep your head when all about you
       Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
       But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
       Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
       And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

    If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
       If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with triumph and disaster
       And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
       Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
       And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
       And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
       And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
       To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
       Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
       Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch;
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
       If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run—
       Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!

    Asking question is not the only way to get information (old thinking).

    Learn to infer - exercise logic, common sense, flexibility and analytical thinking.

    Determination and effort are not everything. Sometimes, destiny can be funny.

                                                            Why Me?

    Arthur Ashe was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: “Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease”?

    To this Arthur Ashe replied:
    The world over —
    50 million children start playing tennis,
    5 million learn to play tennis,
    500,000 learn professional tennis,
    50,000 come to the circuit,
    5000 reach the grand slam,
    50 reach Wimbledon,
    4 to semi final,
    2 to the finals.
    When I was holding the trophy I never asked GOD: “Why me?”.
    So today in pain, I should not be asking GOD: “Why me?”

    Arthur is someone who understands destiny, fate and luck. Amituofo....

    Let's look at how to achieve long lifespan and good health next life:

    Just want to share, a querent in real life once told me to only talk about CM theory only, don't include the spiritual part (ie; karma, reincarnation, past life, etc).

    I asked him back, why should I change from the big picture to such a small, myopic view? Metaphysics is already spiritual by nature itself, it deals with the unseen cosmic energies of the universe. It's like telling me, he wanted to go swimming but doesn't want to get wet. It's not possible.

    Even ZWDS talks about past life and reincarnation.

    Eventually, I ended the conversation with, "If one is satisfied with only half-truths, don't go for fate readings."

    Some food for thought.

    Just to share again.... :) After I introduced the same querent from the above anecdote to the I Ching book, he complained to me that the I Ching is too "preachy" about virtues, values and doing the right things.

    I replied, only immoral people will find it "preachy". If good moral values are inherent in a truly virtuous person, he will find it "affirming" to what he knows and understands.

    Just like a litterbug will find a 'No littering' sign "preachy". It is also virtuous to keep people from straying from the right path.

    Some food for thought. 8)
