Your “prayers not answered” means your “expectations not fulfilled.” The TAO wisdom explains why: your attachments to careers, money, relationships, and success “make” but also “break” you by creating your flawed ego-self that demands your “expectations to be fulfilled.”

How The Bates Method May Give You Natural Vision


The natural vision improvement is based on vision system of the world-famous William Bates, M.D.; as a matter of fact, all the natural vision improvement methods and programs currently available are all based on his original vision theories with different modifications over the past century.

Dr. William Bates demonstrated a very revolutionary natural approach to vision and eye care.

Here is a simple explanation of his method, now known as The Bates Method.

Dr. Bates’ Theories of Vision

The Bates Method is actually a very simple and natural way to correct vision. Because it is so natural and harmless, it has become more widely known and recognized after many decades of controversy and debates. Today, many scientists still find it difficult to accept some of his unconventional theories of vision.

Dr. Bates’ fundamental theories are as follows:

The conditions of the eye are constantly changing, resulting in constant changes in the shape of the eyeball. The focus of the eye is constantly changing too (it is always looking at close and distant objects), resulting in the constant shifting of the eye.


The human eye is able to see in spite of these constant changes in the eye because the normal eye can adapt or adjust to these changes—known as “eye accommodation.” However, eye accommodation may deteriorate due to many factors, such as weak eye muscles, poor light conditions, impaired macula (responsible for visual details). After all, the eye is just another body organ, which, like other body organs, is also vulnerable to disease and degeneration. When that happens, the eye cannot accommodate itself to see clearly, resulting in blurry vision.

It is universally accepted that weak vision occurs when the light from a close or distant object falls not precisely on the retina of the human eye—instead, it falls in front of (nearsightedness) or behind the retina (farsightedness).

The Conventional Treatment of Weak Vision

To correct weak vision or refractive error (light  not  properly refracted on the retina of the eye), the conventional treatment by ophthalmologists and opticians is to make use of corrective lenses (eyeglasses or contacts) with proper prescriptions to enable the light from a close or distant object to refract accurately on the retina.

The conventional treatment serves two purposes: to make the eye see more clearly; to prevent further eyestrain through clearer vision

These are the sole reasons for the professionals to provide eyeglasses and contacts: to provide better vision, and to prevent eyestrain.

The conventional treatment is based on the belief that weak vision  is due to incorrect refraction on the retina because of  the distorted  eye  lens; therefore, to correct the impaired vision, corrective lenses are used to correct the refraction from the distorted lens.

Dr. Bates’  Treatment of Weak Vision

Dr. Bates completely disagreed with the conventional theory of distorted lens. According to Dr. Bates, the conventional treatment is WRONG because the eye is constantly changing, so much that the eye prescriptions (which are constant) in corrective lenses may not help the patients in certain conditions; quite the contrary, they unduly increase their eyestrain. That is to say, if the eye is forced to see in different eye conditions with the same corrective lenses, the eye will have to strain itself to see in different conditions, and thus causing further eyestrain.

Dr. Bates’ explanation was that what might fit the eye (i.e. the prescriptions) at one moment might not be appropriate at another moment, given that the conditions of the eye are constantly changing. In addition, because the eye is capable of adapting and adjusting to different conditions (eye accommodation), wearing corrective lenses will  deprive the eye of such accommodation, and thus leading to further vision deterioration. That was the reason for his objection to wearing corrective lenses.

Dr. Bates’ treatment was based on the belief that the incorrect refraction on the retina is due to weak and unrelaxed eye muscles, which cause distorted shape  in the eyeball, resulting in the refraction falling in front of or behind the retina, instead of directly on the retina.

The Bates Method focuses on the following basic principles of good vision:

Central fixation: Train the eye to focus on only one point one at a time. To illustrate, let your eyes look at a printed page:

Focus on only one word on the printed page, allowing other words in its vicinity to become blurred.

Then, try to see one letter of that word better than the other letters of that word.

Then, look at the other letters, one by one.

Now, look at the blank space  between that word and the next.

Focus on the next word, and repeat the process.

The objective of this training is to help you focus on only a very small area because the macula (responsible for detailed vision) can see only a very small area. Stimulate the macula to enhance vision improvement.

Shifting: Train the eye to look from one object to another frequently, from a close object to a distant one, and then back again in order to relieve tension and eyestrain, which impair good vision. Reinforce shifting with constant blinking to clean and to rest the eye.

Sunning: Train the eye to adapt and adjust to bright light to avoid squinting, which causes eyestrain. Close your eyes and look up at the sun. Then, turn away from the sun, opening your eyes, and look at some clouds. Close your eyes for a moment, and then open your eyes at look at a point a little nearer the sun, but without looking directly at the sun. Sunning sharpens your vision, as well as prevents squinting.

Relaxation: Visualizing “black” induces complete relaxation of the eye. A completely relaxed eye will see only black when it is closed; seeing the field of vision grayish or light-golden in color means that the eye is not totally relaxed. Palming is the most effective exercise for complete eye relaxation.

Candle Gazing

According to Chinese philosophy of healing, the eye is the "window of the soul." As such, the eye reflects the internal health of an individual; for example, the yellowish tint in the whites of the eyes may indicate jaundice or liver problems; the dark circles around the eyes may reflect a toxic colon. The human eye is connected to the liver, blood, and the nervous system. In other words, vision health is holistic health, involving the whole body.

Chinese healing is based on the concept of balance and harmony, expressed in the "yin" and the "yang." For thousands of years, the Chinese believe that the human eye is "yang"; and candle gazing can significantly improve the health of not only the eyes but also the liver. In fact, the ancient Taoist masters believed that candle gazing has the capability to alleviate not only many eye problems but also some latent ailments inside the body. Candle gazing has internal cleansing effect, because candle gazing induces tears to clear the white of the eyes, as well as to remove toxins from the liver.

1.    Sit in front of a lighted candle at arm's length in a dark environment.
2.   Gaze, without blinking, at the candle flame. If necessary, close your eyes for 5 to 10 seconds.
3. Continue to keep your eyes open, staring at the flame and edging its outline.
4.   Breathe naturally.
5.   Allow tears to run down your cheeks; keep your eyes  open even wider to benefit from the deep cleansing effect.
6.   Practice for 5 to 10 minutes. End the session by blinking your eyes, and then massaging gently the eyeballs with all your fingers.

Candle gazing is instrumental in clearing the whites of the eyes, making them shine with brightness. Practicing candle gazing daily enhances your vision health.

Anything Everything Nothing




This book is about the miracle of living.

“Anything” may be “everything” to you, but not to others, and vice-versa. That may explain the some of the difficulties in human relationships. Life is difficult because it is all about you, and not about others. Let go of “anything is everything” to you if you focus more on others as well.

“Everything is nothing” is a universal truth: nothing lasts, no matter how we wish they were permanent. Many of us are reluctant to accept this universal truth of the impermanence of all things in this world.


“Nothing is everything” is enlightenment of the human mind, which is profound understanding of the ultimate truths of self, of others, and of the world around.

This 100-page book explains with many real-life examples to illustrate the perceptions of “anything is everything”, “everything is nothing”, and “nothing is everything”—based on the ancient Chinese wisdom and the Biblical wisdom.

Get the wisdom to live your life as if everything is a miracle.

Good Posture for Better Vision

Vision health has much to do with your physical health. As such, vision is inter-connected with body posture. Therefore, to improve eyesight, you must also improve posture.

The explanation is that vision health is holistic health, which means it includes the health of the body, the mind, and the spirit. Eyesight is an integral part of vision. Your eyesight determines how you see the world at large; your perception is your reality. Therefore, your perception becomes the raw materials of your life experiences, which will directly or indirectly affect your physical, mental, and emotional wellness. By the same token, your physical, mental, and emotional health will have a bearing on your vision health, and hence your eyesight.

According to Dr. William Bates (1860 - 1931), the founder of natural vision improvement, poor vision is the result of eyestrain, due to mental and physical stress on the eye, and hence the distortion of the eye shape, causing nearsightedness and farsightedness. Dr. William Bates strongly believed that eye relaxation holds the key to improving vision.

But eye relaxation begins with the mind first, not the eye. The mind must be completely relaxed before it can relax the body—and then the eye, which is only one of the organs of the body.

Improve posture to relax the body and the mind, and hence the eye. After all, posture health is overall health: it affects your whole being in many different ways.

Improve posture to improve your breathing. Incorrect breathing results in compromised lung functioning, leading to inadequate oxygen intake by all body organs and tissues, and hence a host of health issues, including vision health. Improve posture to optimize breathing for vision health.

Improve posture to avoid debilitating body pain, such as neck pain, leg pain, and even headaches. In addition, an arched back exerts undue pressure on the joints and nerves, causing joint pain and rheumatism. Due to poor body posture, all the muscle groups supporting the crooked spine may become stretched and strained, causing wear and tear, resulting in lower back pain. Chronic body pain often interferes with natural sleep, which is a major factor in relaxation of the body and the mind, in particular, the eye. Therefore, it is important to improve posture for eye relaxation to improve eyesight.

To successfully improve posture, you must develop an acute awareness for good posture at all times.

Good posture does not mean "jamming your shoulders back, tucking in your tummy, and standing stiff"; this posture does not align your body, nor is it practicable in that you can maintain that position over an extended period. Good posture means that in any standing position, you body posture should be as follows:

Your head is directly above your shoulders.

Your chin is tucked in.

Your ear, shoulder, and hip are in a straight line from a side view.

Your upper back is straight, not slouched.

Your shoulders, relaxed and straight, are flat against your back.

Your pelvis is in a neutral position.

Your knees are unlocked.

Be mindful not just of your standing posture, but also your sitting and sleeping posture—they all play a pivotal part in eye relaxation, which holds the key to improving eyesight.

Healing Vision

Vision is about the eye. It is all about what you see, or how well you see. Healthy vision gives you sensation, perception, and conception. Your life depends on your eyes. In short, healthy vision gives you all the raw materials for living for life.

Vision is seeing, which involves not just the eyes, but also the mind, and the brain as well.

Healthy vision requires healthy eyes with healthy light-sensing cells to receive and process visual information.

Healthy vision requires a health mind so that it can selectively see the visual data presented before the eyes. Healthy eyes do not see everything, nor do they attempt to see everything.

AWARENESS: See only selectively! Never STRAIN your eyes to see! A blurry image is OK!

Healthy vision requires a healthy brain to interpret correctly the visual data selectively collected by the eye.

Therefore, healthy vision is a complex interaction between the eye, the mind, and the brain. The physical body (specifically, the physical and physiological health) and the environment (such as lighting) can positively or negatively influence this complex interaction between the eye, the mind, and the brain. In other words, vision health is holistic health. Accordingly, vision self-healing cannot address only the human eye alone; as a matter of fact, vision self-healing begins with the mind first, and then the eye, and the body.

To conclude, healthy vision is a balance and correlation of physical eyesight, emotional seeing, and inner vision.

How to Have Better Visual Images

Good lighting to stimulate the light-sensing cells of your eyes (millions of light-sensing cells in the retina)

Relaxed ciliary muscles to hold the lens in its proper place

Relaxed eyeballs to retain their shape

A relaxed macula (near the center of the retina) to prevent intense use of central vision, or staring, causing eyestrain

A relaxed mind to correctly interpret and process the visual data received

Good vision is all about relaxation.

How I Fixed My Vision Problems

Many years ago, I was afflicted with myasthenia gravis, a chronic autoimmune disease affecting the skeletal (voluntary) muscles of the body. The hallmark of myasthenia gravis is muscle weakness, which affects my vision.

One of the main causes of myasthenia gravis is stress. I did not know how to relax myself.

According to the diagnosis, I had developed ocular symptoms: ptosis (drooping of eyelids) and diplopia (double vision) in my myasthenia gravis. Both of my eyelids drooped, as if my eyes were tired, and I could not open my eyes wide enough to see properly.

At first, I was prescribed pyridostigmine (mestinon) as the usual first-line treatment for my immune disorder.

After several months, my conditions did not improve. I was given another prescription, prednisone, a synthetic hormone commonly referred to as a “steroid,” for my myasthenia gravis. Prednisone acts as a long-term immunosuppressant to control the production of antibodies. Essentially, it serves to stabilize my so-called “overactive” immune system.

The adverse side effects of prednisone for my myasthenia gravis included decreased resistance to infection, indigestion, hypertension, weight gain, swelling of the face, thinning of skin, predisposition to osteoporosis, and potential development of cataracts and glaucoma. The long list was not only depressing but also frightening. I was worried that I would have to take my medications for the rest of my life, not just for my myasthenia gravis but also for the many side effects related to the drugs, such as bone loss, weight gain, and high blood pressure, among others.

After almost two years on prednisone, my neurologist, seeing there was little improvement in my myasthenia gravis, switched me to azathioprine, a drug supposedly with fewer side effects. However, that medication did not seem to have any positive effect on my symptoms, let alone my double vision. Naturally, I became frustrated.

Now, when I look back at the whole episode, I would think that my illness might have been a blessing in disguise. Everything happens in one’s life with a divine purpose. In many ways, I was grateful that I had the illness—which has changed my life forever and for the better. I began to learn how to take care of my health, and I knew I had to do it on my own.

I made a decision to change drastically my diet, accompanied by a regular fast,  in an attempt to discontinue all my medications ultimately. The initial results were encouraging. Instead of gaining weight, I had lost more than fifteen pounds; instead of jacking up my blood pressure, I had made it plummet. I had won my initial battle against all the adverse side effects of medications for my myasthenia gravis. I knew that I had to do more—much more than that. My rude awakening finally came: there was no miracle cure for my myasthenia gravis; only my wholesome wellness would bring about recovery and natural self-healing.

Slowly and gradually, I discontinued all my medications. Finally, I did it! Now, I am 100 percent drug free!

To eliminate double vision, the doctor recommended wearing an eye-patch over my weaker eye. But I did not entertain the idea of wearing an eye-patch—looking like a pirate of the Caribbean Sea. Besides, wearing an eye-patch would not solve my problem of double vision. There is a Chinese saying: “Cut your toes to avoid the worms.” I thought that was precisely what the doctor recommended: getting around the problem instead of solving it. I also recalled that early on, when my muscles were weak and I asked him for recommended remedy, he told me not to use those weak muscles. I disagreed with the doctor; instead, I exercised my weaker muscles until they became much stronger.

That was how I began my journey of self-healing.

Nutrients for Healthy Vision

Balanced Acid-Alkaline to Combat Free Radicals

Your body cells need a balanced acid-and-alkaline environment to fight against free radicals. Acid and alkaline are substances that have opposing qualities. Your body functions at its best when the pH is optimum, which is slightly alkaline. The pH of your blood, tissues, and body fluids directly affect the state of your cellular health, in particular, that of the eye.

The pH scale ranges between one and fourteen. Seven is considered neutral. Anything below seven is considered acidic, while anything above seven is considered alkaline. Deviations above or below a 7.30 and 7.40 pH range can signal potentially serious and even dangerous symptoms, forewarning you of a disease in process.

When your body is too acidic, the tissues of your cells are forced to relinquish their alkaline reserves, depleting them of alkaline minerals, which are the components of the tissues themselves.

Over acidification comes from excess intake of foods containing great amounts of acid (animal proteins, sugar), and insufficient elimination by the body through the kidneys (urination) and the skin (sweating).

Alkaline foods contain little or no acid substances, and they do not produce acids when metabolized by your body. Alkaline foods include: green vegetables; colored vegetables (except tomato); chestnut; potato; avocado; black olives; bananas; dried fruits; almonds and Brazil nuts; alkaline mineral waters; cold-pressed oils (e.g. olive oil).

Alkaline medicinal plants also maintain the optimum pH level.

Black currant fruits are a good source of vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals, including an omega-6 fatty acid to increase blood flow to the eye.

Cranberry has been in use since the Iron Age, but the Romans were the first to recognize its medicinal values. Cranberry contains anti-asthmatic compounds, and is high in vitamin C and antioxidants. Eat fresh or dried cranberry, not the sugar-loaded cranberry juice obtainable in the supermarket.

Alkaline energy boosters can enhance your alkalinity to fight against free radicals.

Blackstrap molasses is an excellent source of iron and calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, and potassium.
Make a healthy alkaline drink with a tablespoon of organic blackstrap molasses (mixed in some hot water first) and ¾ cup of soymilk. Add ice.

Cod liver oil, which comes from fatty fish, such as salmon and sardines, is rich in vitamin A and vitamin D, and essential omega 3 oils. It enhances the absorption of calcium and maintains a constant level of blood calcium. Cod liver oil improves brain functions and the nervous system, which play a pivotal part in vision health.

Alkaline supplements, such as coral calcium, can keep all mineral levels up, and each and every mineral in balance. Alkaline supplements should contain calcium (Ca), sodium (Na), silica and copper, and other minerals to aid de-acidification of the body. More importantly, they should contain every mineral in similar proportion to that found in the human body. Remember, the human body functions synergistically: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Every mineral has its crucial role to play in the human anatomy, including the eye.

Essential Fatty Acids

The high consumption of foods loaded with saturated fats and cholesterol, as well as man-made fats in egg substitutes, margarines, and basked foods, has led to a host of age-related eye disorders, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinal vein occlusion, among others. The explanation is that the tiny blood vessels located in the eye may become easily clogged with fats and other deposits that may cause eye problems.

The omega-3 fats, on the other hand, are good fats that help the normal functioning of the eye:

Regulating eye pressure

Moistening the eye

Relieving spasms in the eyelids

Reducing the eye’s sensitivity to the sun
Boosting the immune system

The omega-3 fats are found in chestnuts, flax seed, northern beans, soy, walnuts, wheat germ, and fish, such as cod, mackerel, salmon, and tuna.

For the omega-3 fats to be potent in protecting against free radicals, they must be combined with antioxidants.

Yoga and Healthy Eyes

Vision health has much to do with stress and eye exercises. Stress is damaging to your mental and physical health, including your vision health. In addition, to maintain your vision health, you need to do eye exercises on a regular basis, just as you need to exercise your body or your mind to maintain their health.

Stress is a state of mind; that is, it is all in your mind. According to Descartes, the great philosopher, you are your thoughts, and your thoughts become who you are. In other words, you are the creator of your thoughts, which then become the substances with which you weave the fabrics of your own life. That is to say, your stress is your perception of what is happening to you. Additionally, "too much" thinking may also stress you out, especially if your thoughts focus on unhappy things.

According to CNN on how yoga may help you realize your resolutions in life: simply resolving to do something isn't enough; you need the means to start on the right path and stay on the course. Say, you want to do eye exercises, but fall short on a follow-through strategy. That's where yoga may come in: the ancient practice can provide the resources and support for a multitude of modern-day lifestyle changes. . . . .

If you want to be stress-free, your wandering mind is most likely your stumbling block. According to a 2010 Harvard study, 47% of the time of the human mind is thinking about things that aren't happening. Understandably, spending half your life lost in thought is considered a major cause of unhappiness and a source of stress in your life.

How can yoga help a distracted and wandering mind? Yoga is a practice based on mindfulness that emphasizes using your breath to consistently connect to the present moment. It also teaches you how to breathe deeper and use meditative techniques to tap into your parasympathetic nervous system to reduce stress and increase happy hormones. "

You must be mindful of your breaths, which is a way to re-focus your mind on the present moment. If you have a compulsive mind—that is, constantly thinking of the past and the future—you are not living in the present; not living in the now means your mind is obsessed with past memories and worries of future happenings. Remember, the past was gone, the future is unknown, and only the present is real. Therefore, the key to stress-free vision health is slowing down your compulsive mind. Yes, yoga is an exercise that may do just that.

When you slow down, you feel less stress, and you can concentrate on your eye exercises, which have to be done consistently to enhance your vision health.

Read my book No Ego No StressIt shows you how to live your life as if everything is a miracle without any stress. The book is based on the ancient wisdom of TAO from ancient China. True Tao wisdom requires you to be mindful of what is going on in your mind, and let go your ego-self. Without the ego, there is no stress; it is just that simple! Be mindful of others through love and compassion; mindfulness holds the key to understanding who you really are without your ego, and not who you wish you were.

Learn How to Increase Peripheral Vision

The macula in the center of the retina is responsible for detailed vision. Overuse of the central vision leads to weakening of the macula, resulting in much loss of detailed vision.

Increasing peripheral vision will decrease the use of central vision, and hence instrumental in protecting the macula and enhancing detailed vision, which is critical to good vision.

Cut small black rectangular cards in different sizes (2”x 2”; 2”x3”; 2”x5”) from construction paper. Tape the card to the top of the bridge of your nose, covering part of both eyes.   

Sit or stand, and look through the smallest black rectangular card in front of your eyes, while turning your head from side to side.

Notice that your surrounding seems to be “moving” in the opposite direction.

Stop turning your head, and close your eyes for a minute or two. Now, visualize the previous “moving surrounding” in your mind’s eye.

Open your eyes again, and move or wave your hands on both sides of your ears. Notice your moving hands, which are now stimulating your peripheral cells.

Stop waving your hands, and close your eyes. Now, visualize the movement of your hands in your mind’s eye.

Repeat the above with the mid-size and then the large-size black rectangular cards. 

By partially covering the eyes, your mind enables your eyes to pay more attention to what is on both sides, and hence stimulates your peripheral vision. After each exercise, you will see that your vision has “expanded” and has become “broad.” By strengthening your peripheral vision, you indirectly reduce your use of central vision, and hence protecting your macula from deterioration and degeneration.

AWARENESS: Train your eyes to see what is on both sides of your eyes.
