You are my first male SS fan who invited me as a friend. I only consider males who are faithful to the SS fan site. Even though we can criticise him , especially for his latest collection of bad movies, we must never forget why we are on the site. to give constructinve criticism is OK, it's like when we do that to a member of our family. We love them so we feel we have the right to say something about their behaviour or activities that has lowered our expectation of them. Constructive criticism is not a threat and should not be threatening to the person we are criticising,done with love can never hurt , it is conveyed with love and kindness.
we all love SS on the site, and it is normal for us loving fans to say something when our expectations of him is lowered.
but really he does not have the final say with what the producers do to his films after editing, they add and subtract without his knowledge. but making him aware of the outcome is good, becuase he may then exert a decision that will either modify the outcome of bad movies or do away with acting in them . He may start to have more say in what the final cut of a film in which he appears will be.anyway we are his fans and we must be honest, open and willing to discuss together collectively and individually what we think about SS's activites.
i have no problem with the rest of his activities, His philanthropy, his spirituality, his musicality, all shine through as products of a Bhuddhist mind.He is just himself. He really does not try to put on a show to please others, we can follow in his footsteps as he is a fine role model in these activities.but in following in his footsteps we must learn to discern between positive and negative criticism. what we give out returns back to us. that is natural law.
I am greatly rested here in Hong Kong now, had a big trek to Central yesterday and that always exhausts me. The weather this time of year, typhoons, sub-tropical humidity, heat, hard rain, the pollution takes its toll on a person. the best time of year is November when the summer is over and the autumn brings with it cooler air and one feels more comfortable. am escaping to the heat in Shanghai for business on 16th July until 6th August , that will be most trying , hope to enjoy the spas and airconditioning of hotel in between business outside.
Asian cities are so polluted i enjoy really escaping and regenerating in Perth, Western Australia, the best place on the planet.The peace, quiet, beautiful environment and the beaches on the Indian ocean are second to none.Mostly the fresh air.
Best wishes for a great day to you.
