    I like written portraits and photographic portraits too, Liberation a French paper I used to buy at airports when I was travelling always had one at the back of its paper edition which meant I always started to read the last page first checking up on the photo shot and snippet of life of whoever they were covering. I reckon you would have made a great contributor @Gert Scholtz :-)

    Making the subject feel welcome to their own photo!! I despise posed photos, especially of myself. it's the unexpected, the life behind the photos that I like/enjoy. Get in front of too many photographers and they want you to pose, which reminds me that horrible trend of Vogue-ing! If they actually listened to Madonna's song then; "move to the music..."...capture life. Ritts apparently had the gift for that capture.
    A wonderful post Gert. Not following photographers I did not know of Ritts, but this sampling of his work shows I missed out. The beauty of photography is the artists work lives on way past the artists.

    Thank you for tagging me on this wonderful post, @Puneet Srivastava. So beautifully explained. I totally agree with your analogies to describe the meditative experience. Whenever I meditate, I feel weightless after a while, and how I love that feeling! I also start seeing myself surrounded by light although my eyes are closed, lots of light, even though there is just a single candle burning on an otherwise dark room. Meditation is bliss. And as you rightly stated, "...with practice, a meditative experience can stay with you forever."

    Thanks for the tag @Puneet Srivastava, my true meditative spot is on the beach. It is the feel of sand between my toes as if by their own volition they dig deeper and deeper searching for the coolness below the top layer heated by the sun. I can watch the rhythm of the waves for hours in total silence.

    #5 Thank you @Tausif Mundrawala. You have always been a big encouragement for me to share these write-ups with the world. We have recently started a voluntary program where we meditate together at the same hour from our respective homes, while being in different parts of the world. Mumbai Timings for the same are 3.30 AM, 9.30 AM, 3.30 PM and 9.30 PM. Currently though a small group, yet we have participants in 4 time zones and it is proving beneficial for all of us. The aim of this program is to encourage those people who struggle to find: 1) a proper place, 2) a good company and 3) the basic time-discipline which is needed for meditation. Its an open program and anyone can join for as many sessions on a daily basis. This has been a new development at my end which I felt you may find interesting. Good wishes.

    Hi @Puneet Srivastava
    Thank you for tagging me
    It's very hard to explain to people what meditation is like if they have not tried it.
    So I like your buzz especially 1.& 2.

    I recommend meditation to all my clients
    starting with breathing, PMR and then spoken form for them to listen to.

    Recently I found this one https://kloraneapaise.klorane.com/au-en
    which although is linked to product advertising
    if a client can disconnect from that
    it is quite soothing
    My female clients particularly like it

    Another fav of mine is by Jason Stephenson
    It’s for kids but I love this one! In 5 minutes I am completely relaxed

    Great article @Puneet Srivastava, ultimately the goal for meditation is "not thinking", "not doing", that is the meditative state and you brilliantly describe vehicles that help us to arrive at these quiet and contemplative states. I think that @Ian Weinberg would appreciate this buzz.

    Love this Producer @Puneet Srivastava!! Once I experienced Gibberish Meditation by Osho, and it was one of the most incredible sensations in my whole life. Total vacuum, hiatus. In the second part of the meditation, after the so strong noise we were making (40 people in a room), my mind was just standing there, don't know where, just stopped there.
    For me meditation is consciousness of the present moment. Running and swimming are my best ways for meditation. I need action to stop. Funny. 💫

    I consider it as aqua therapy which heals us from within. Whenever time permits I indulge myself in this rejuvenating process after rigorous workout. Our skin, vital organs and the very core of our being blesses us with tranquility and an experience which can't be expressed in words. Before indulging we need to calm ourselves from within because like everyday ritual we would be pouring that mug full of water with the intent of cleaning our bodies. Am highly thankful to my reading habit and my yoga instructor who taught me to be disciplined enough with my body.

    You have always invoked those vivid memories which I left behind in Kaivalyadham. Am glad that you tagged me for this wonderful buzz, my friend @Puneet Srivastava

    I thoroughly enjoyed this buzz, @Puneet Srivastava; I found it very calming! To be honest I can't remember a time I have felt at peace for anything other than a moment, so this is a great break from the mayhem of my life.
    When my husband was in his 3rd or 4th year of Parkinson's, we do meditation together, following some advise that it would be good for his tremor - it was to a degree. We also did breathing techniques to help calm his system; one was to laugh in different ways, slowly to fully...we ended up in hysterics!
    Like @Harvey Lloyd mentioned in his comment (although I'm absolutely sure he's a lot better at it than I!), moments of serenity, peace or calm only happen when I stop to see the immense beauty of God's beautiful earth. Lovely piece and peace!

    "Playing" is how I've developed some of my best solutions as an Analyst. I actually use the word Play to describe what I do when I'm trying to create a metric that answers a question posed by those who depend on me for those answers. Data and number manipulation is a form of art; only the final picture has very practical applications, or so I hope. Sometimes the metric isn't what was desired but I sure had fun getting there. I'm sure even Michelangelo didn't always create a Masterpiece! :-) You have to like what you do and when you don't; Play! It changes your attitude and gets your creative juices flowing

    #1 I tended to agree, but many of my friends are worried about leaving work behind and I have been to retirement seminars where the message is that once you make the decision to retire, you cannot change your mind. This message is of course not true, but many believe this and are nervous about taking this step. I agree with the idea just do it, but for some the unknown of retirement is scary. Boomers are changing what it means to be retired. We are living longer, healthier and having more fun in retirement than the previous generations

    Enjoyed the trip through the Big Band Era. I started listening to Big Band as a result of the I Love Lucy show and "Ricky's" band at the club :-). It's when I watched Jimmy Stewart in The Glenn Miller Story (yes before my time but I'm also a lover of old movies) and how Glenn Miller went in search of "the sound" that I became fascinated with the process. I learned to admire and respect the blood, sweat, and tears that goes into developing the music so many take for granted.

    Well, Bob Marley was my fellow Jamaican and, without a doubt, he has had a global impact. He rose from poverty to leave not only a musical legacy but a financial legacy that has made his children millionaires. All this he accomplished in a very short lifetime.

    Jim, You are one of the good guys mentioning the contractors and their positive service. I've found that the little guys that succeed understand that it is all about getting to trust--with the customer, prospect and community at large. Those that deliver stay in business particularly in the personal service markets.

    Well, Jim, customer service these days is unfortunately taken to mean a pleasant voice at the other end of a telephone connection, frequent robotic status updates on one's order, repetitive delivery tracking information, the ubiquitous annoying and time-consuming (and invariably ignored) customer satisfaction survey, and the AI-generated suggestions to follow-up buying of products pretty much like the one you just bought (without any explanation why in the world the CRM Robot thinks you would want to buy something almost identical to what you just bought). The current concept of Customer Service was created and kept inflated by the purveyors of CRM software -- who as is usual in the software sector, can't solve your real problem, and so re-visualize your problem as something that they can, in their limited wisdom, actually deal with. Cheers!

    Good point. A lot of people go on about customer service, but the sad fact is that you can get along with poor customer service when you have a large market and a must-have service (just ask any bank or utility company). In a small market, there's nowhere to hide.

    Exceptional buzz that raises conflicting answers in me @Geoff Hudson-Searle! I'll try and clarify. Okay, so what is truth? Is it something tactile, sensory? No, we know the element of truth is not simply contained in such limited boundaries. We know love, but even though there are biological markers for attraction or arousal, love can't be quantified either. Faith; how about that? We know faith because we believe in things like...love and truth, for example.
    Personally, I don't know myself...not really. I might know there are predictors particular to me but they don't become truth unless tested. To say I am certain of anything outside of my faith in a Creator that is not confined to space and time would be untrue. Maybe we know too much. Maybe not enough; either way, our lives are simply too short (mine, too chaotic) to put fully into use what I have learned. Does not mean you haven't though!

    Love is a spiritual word, mythical if you will. Science can't explain it, but society longs for it in many variations. The statistics are not surprising since the questions asked could only, probably only questions of material world processes/physical. Love is not something the material world can grasp or explore because as your final quote stated, love has nothing to offer the material world but a smile of a child.

    It is difficult to find peace in a world that measured materially rather than spiritually. The competitive nature of man is unleashed when materialism is at the front. The compassion of man is released only when love is genuine and is motivated spiritually.

    It is difficult to have a foot in both worlds/concepts. The truth is relative to the world in which you choose to live. The material world requires fake news to feed the material fire of progress. Fake news destroys our love and spiritual realm in creating cognitive dissonance, because we attempt to survive in both.

Since Kale has become all the rage (I call it the new Spinach) I'll have to try it with some ACV. I did know from personal experience that it helps with acid reflux which I suffer from when I eat too many sweets, so anything with ACV fixes the problem.

It was then I realized that many of my actions were activities and not actions.
    For example, I read, listened, and associated with those who were teaching me. Yet, these were activities that would not produce fruit toward my goal. I needed to change my focus of what I thought was action.

Coming from Japan, what I would be missing is the high tech buzz of Tokyo where I work for example. I know I would lose cleanliness but that it would be replaced with kindness. But it is indeed a vast country so if your point is to say that I am missing a lot, I can concede it readily. Now, about coming to Indonesia to change my mind... ;-)

    "The spectacular landscapes dotted with majestic mountains peppered with volcanoes whose sole purpose seems to be to try and reach up and touch a sky, delicious with stars. Indonesia has the ability to seduce and, when one has succumbed to her charms she will call like a plaintive siren from the sea each time you try and leave her." Seriously? Would that I had written it. It's exactly how I feel about it, without knowing it. Riveting, emotive words @Paul Walters

    Indonesia thanks to its vastness is indeed the ultimate country in Asia. Worth a look... and a trip! Living there? I don't know!

    Beautiful piece @Paul Walters. If they have a Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia, your posts are perfect material for them. I imagine Indonesia to be a beautiful and fascinating place to live.

    Okay! I'm coming over!... someday... What a beautifully written piece. You just seem to have a way of drawing me into wherever you happen to be. Such passion and understanding of your surroundings, yet the recognition that it only a smidgen of the all.

    Interesting point you made about the respect for age in Indonesia compared to the orderly "geriatric-hotels" created in the West for people who are considered past their sell-by-date in the West. I also do find the topography of so many islands in Indonesia to be an interesting cultural facet of Indonesia. The passion you personally have shines through on the page, that is perhaps a greater testimony because you do make places come alive, even to the point where a part of us wonder why we are not making the same choices you have!

    Hmmm, maybe the better question would be, "Why don't we all live in Bali?"

    #7 yes and I touched upon cognitive dissonance without naming it in my previos buzz @Harvey Lloyd. To keep readers interested I avoid ucsing terms that may require me to explain more. You are spot on.

    #5 I thought it most interesting within the post here that confirmation bias is connected to cognitive dissonance. This really opened up some insight for myself as i was aware of both, but in different contexts. Thanks @Nir Eyal View more

    #4 Thank you @Harvey Lloyd for tagging me to this super buzz. In fact, you did me a favor as I was in the process of finishing by buzz of today on Lopsided Thinking in Marketing and Sales when I noticed your tag. I interrupted m ywriting to include this idea from this buzz "There is just too much information to process". I did and linked my buzz to this one.
    @Nir Eyal- we did have exchange of messages between us on habit marketing almost a year ago. Now, I truly enjoyed reading your buzz and the style with which you produced it. Information bias is truly problematic and you explained it beautifully here.

    I like this post @Nir Eyal. It's refreshing and unique and presents good ideas about how we look at ourselves and how we believe we are perceived by others.
See all
