Who is the Vizier?
Greetings traveller, my name is Irving. I am the Vizier, owner of Han of Harmony.
What does “Vizier” mean?
Vizier means “bearer of burden” or “to help.” It is a term for a high-ranking minister in some Muslim countries today. In medieval times, the Vizier helped the Sultan to bear his burden of rule by running state affairs. He served as a minister and an adviser to the Sultan.
Why did I choose “Vizier” as a pen name for Han of Harmony?
The role of the adviser suits me best. I enjoy helping people to manage change better by making the best choice in any situation. Making poor choices in any area of life can cost you dearly. The cost can be mental, emotional, financial or material. As far as I can, I always try my best to help people to avoid poor choices. This is the main reason why I chose “Vizier” as a pen name for my blog. It suits my nature perfectly.
I love solving human problems. I love looking at a situation to discern the best choices and actions possible. Here, being able to foresee the outcome of choices and actions helps a great deal. I know I have much to offer to all who seek my advice.
Using the Vizier as my pen name has another use. It allows me to refer to myself in the third person should the need arise. One instance would be titles for my articles. Whenever I have difficulty thinking of a title, I just put my pen name in it haha!
What does “Han” mean?
A “Han” is a roadside inn where travellers can rest and resupply after a long journey. Due to the many people who passed through, the Han was also a great place to gain information. Here people could find out the latest news from others. During medieval times, the many Hans along the Silk Road supported the flow of commerce.
Han is a Turkish word also known as caravanserai.
Why did I name my blog Han of Harmony?
Life is a journey for us all. Along the way, we are bound to have good times and bad times. During challenging periods, it would be great to find a place to rest and recharge. This place is Han of Harmony.
Here, you will gain insights on how to manage change and challenges from my articles. If that is not enough, you may also “Ask the Vizier” for help to deal with your problems. I will be more than happy to assist you. With these two steps, you will be able to restore harmony to your life. Then, you may continue on your journey with confidence and peace of mind.
More about Han of Harmony
Han of Harmony is a record of my life experiences thus far. As an INFJ, I have always been concerned about finding ways and means to manage life and its challenges. I have also been trying to master my emotions and myself. What you read here at Han of Harmony is the fruits of my labour. It has not been an easy journey for me. But you don’t have to go through what I did to learn what I know. By sharing my experiences and thoughts with you, I hope you can benefit from it as well. This after all is the way humanity progresses; by building on the experiences of others.
My philosophy is simple. Learn, read and take what appeals to you and put the rest aside. Depending on the stage of life you are at, not everything you read here will be immediately relevant. That is ok. When the time is ripe, other blog posts may become relevant to you. I have recorded my experiences here so that you can refer to it whenever you wish. It is my hope that you too can live an inspired life in harmony with change.
