- 21/01/2017"Think and meditate when you have the time. You can always find a little time and do it anywhere." Andrew Goldman
Comments21/01/2017 #4 Praveen Raj GullepalliPosture is very important during meditation. We must not mistake it for introspection or contemplation or reverie ;) I read a very fascinating book recently in which one of the Gurus of a seeker (the narrator) tells him that half the meditation is already done when you learn to sit ramrod straight yet relaxed and comfortable. Keeping the spine erect and the head in line with the shoulder. The next thing is to breathe in discipline. (there are multiple rhythms of intake-retention-expulsion for different folks and purposes). The simplest is to breathe deep in and out without discomfort, for short spells, starting with a few cycles and increasing gradually over a period of a few months or so under guidance..

Race is supposed to be "color blind" under the law and in theory. Therefore, people should only be judged on content of character, morals and merit principles. In fact, according to the US Census Bureau, whites in the USA will be a minority by about 2044. That is, compared to the so-called "minority-majority" (combination of all traditionally known minority groups). So does this mean whites should then receive special treatment, hands outs or a hand up, based on minority status? No it does not. Moreover, even if it did mean that, I doubt it would ever happen in America.14/03/2017 #32 Phillip HubbellAt a point, when the prevailing philosophy hasn’t worked, I sometimes think what the world needs is a new approach to the problems that beset it. I don’t believe that the insistence on blaming the present for the past will ever bear the fruit of understanding. I don’t even believe there is a desire for understanding. The prevailing approach to fixing the world serves only to stoke the argument. In my opinion, what will need to happen is for the societies to draw a line in time and move forward without thinking about how things got this way…as thinking about how things got this way has solved little. Just the suggestion of this as an idea will cause the rending of cloth and gnashing of teeth among those so heavily invested in the wrongs of history that they can’t foresee a future without them.14/03/2017 #31 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsA terrific post with a lifesaving message. "To create the kind of society in which all people are judged on the content of their character and not the color of their skin" is my only prayer.

I wish the young people of South Africa would embrace more non violent ways of protesting society's ills. Burning down a brand new law library or computer centre, rioting on the streets and pillaging and looting is not going to have the long term impact visionary leaders like Martin Luther King or Gandhi had.21/01/2017 #27 Donna-Luisa Eversley@David B.

Non violence is an absolute must for unity, ill will makes us vulnerable to question others beside us and perhaps slip into violent acts of division.

Being a positive person, I'm reminded of that saying: hope springs eternal. I think as the younger generations come of age, discriminatory factors like race, gender, ethnicity, etc., will be less and less of an issue because it appears to me that this new generation sees people as people -- rather than separating people out by racial, ethinic, gender groups, etc. Moreover, in the USA at least, the white population will increasingly become the real minority group as traditionally known minorities comprise an increasing share of the population. For example, Hispanics/Latinos and Asians are the two fastest growing demographic groups in America right now. Further, the U.S. Census Bureau projects this trend to continue well into the future (see www.census.gov),15/01/2017 #18 Pascal DerrienMLK said I think it was him something along the lines that at time of great moral distress one cannot remain neutral we are living in those times I believe I don't know in the US but I see many activists on the ground so there is hope I suppose @David B.

It is unfortunate that more do not read it seriously or critically. Obama's Legacy should not be tied to Martin Luther King Jr, but to V. I .

Comments28/12/2016 #28 Ken BoddieOver the years, Andrew, I've made several attempts to teach myself new tricks. First there was the memory improvement course book I bought, but I could never remember where I put the damned thing. Then there's the book on beating procrastination which I'll get round to opening one day soon. Perhaps I'm getting old? What so you think? 😂28/12/2016 #27 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#26 In the past I have been far more like the Hindenberg and so in 2017 I need a whole lot more helium and ensure I am no longer fly with any hydrogen. When Henry Ford also spoke, his words were pure hydrogen also, but he had ghostwriters and PR people who transformed his words and actions and sent them out into the world as helium - hence today the Henry Ford quotes that people do no longer see as flammable and explosive - but are now more like the gentler kinder man that I may yet someday be - so happily helium in an increasingly hydrogen bomb world.28/12/2016 #26 Gerald Hecht#24 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit yeah; well --at least I can give you my free science tip for the day: Before you drink that glass of water; pour some of it into another glass which vibrates/oscillates the water 💦 at the critical frequency/amplitude --it will conveniently release the Hydrogen for endless clean power.26/12/2016 #25 Gerald Hecht#24 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit yes, that sounds pretty good...okay just remember to set the delay for the required number of decades ("what?...Oh yeah; I forgot) ...I'm sorry, I meant don't forget to bury it deep in an area unlikely to be inadvertently exposed by climate change induced changes in geographic/topological features26/12/2016 #22 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#21 More like some people are the chosen sons of history and others whose story was great are completely written out. Look at it another way, note how many brands are registered in our mind, or as Al Ries once said "don't position the product, position the mind". We also know about the PR prowess of Edward Bernays http://www.jeffjacoby.com/5708/the-public-be-swayed26/12/2016 #20 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#17 It is no secret that Henry Ford's team had ghostwriters as detailed here https://www.thehenryford.org/explore/blog/henry-fords-quotations and I have a copy of Today and Tomorrow that is attributed to Henry Ford - and while it says his name on the cover, inside there is a note saying (in collaboration with Samuel Crowther)
The actual book (Today and Tomorrow) is brilliant. We know that Ford kept failing in business until he was supported by a team that knew what they were doing, and we also know that Ford was considered by some to be an ignorant man with some views that have been watered down by history and supplanted by his mythological status.
Whatever the status of his contribution Today and Tomorrow is well worth reading - what I do know is that he was supported by the loyalty of people like Crowthers - and it is they who were the powers behind the throne. That throne is called Henry Ford.26/12/2016 #18 Mark AnthonyIs it OK, just because someone had great ideas, was a good thinker etc to still acknowledge them? I don't think so. Anyone promoting prejudice, war and so on should be left out of the, whatever it is. Or, let's see them for what they were bigoted, homicidal maniacs or, at best suffering from some sort of mental health condition. I do like Ford car's though26/12/2016 #15 Richard Buse#14 I share that perspective, Phil. Henry Ford's industrial success is renowned and well-deserved, but there were deplorable actions and words, too. As I understand it, the role of saving the company and attempting to undo prior damage fell upon his grandson (Henry Ford II) in the 1940s.26/12/2016 #13 Phil Friedman#12 Richard, I too do a fair amount of ghostwriting and can confirm that individual situations vary widely. Some involve little more than copy editing. Others involve original writing that nevertheless captures and expresses the ideas of the "author of record". And still others involve the ghostwriter developing the major portion, sometimes all, of the ideas and opinions, for simply the final approval of the author of record. That is why I included a link to an interview with ghostwriter Tony Schwartz about his work re The Art of the Deal. And left it to others to draw their own conclusions whether or not, as Andrew Goldman says, Schwartz simply transcribed what Trump told him to say. Cheers!26/12/2016 #12 Richard BuseAn interesting thread. Henry Ford revolutionized society by figuring out how to inexpensively manufacture automobiles, but he displayed substantial flaws as well, including his persistence in publishing anti-Semitic material. As to the validity of ghost-writing? Much of my income is derived from such activity. While some bylined authors are more hands-on than others, it’s generally assumed that whatever I write must accurately reflect the bylined author’s point of view.26/12/2016 #11 Gerald Hecht#7 @Phil Friedman wasn't this a Ford quote about the precious gifts that await the lifelong learner? I thought that the poster was serious about that...that they loved being a lifelong learner themselves --thirsting for breadcrumbs along the path...those "barely perceived road signs" which...

Comments31/10/2016 #1 Robert CormackThe whole "give it first" philosophy is tough for people. Many simple say, "I'm more willing to respond. I like to see other people's intentions before I make a move. It's safer, I don't have to put myself out there." So many people are far more interested in "responding," it's like the great applause of the world, given at the moment someone says or does something we can all get behind. We build consensus by responding. It's easier than initiating and far less open to failure.
