Change—real change—comes from the inside out. It doesn’t come from hacking at the leaves of attitude and behavior with quick fix personality ethic techniques. It comes from striking at the root—the fabric of our thought, the fundamental, essential paradigms, which give definition to our character and create the lens through which we see the world.
Habit 1: Be Proactive
- 28/10/2016In relation to the WPD (wonderment-passion-drive) Factor cc@Ali Anani, @Fatima Williams): Fabio Marzocca writes: "Martin Heidegger stated that to understand the world, to recover our authenticity, we must return to those who thought about the world before Socrates; that is, to the origins of our amazement for the wonders of being."
In relation to the Defining Creativity Hive, Fabio Marzocca writes: "Creativity really flows when we are linked to our deepest roots, the most deeply rooted knowledge structures, representing the most powerful tools to be able to "trigger" the process of developing a fruitful thought. A "creative" thought always arises from the transformation of a substrate of basic knowledge that (sometimes unknowingly) takes part in the process, and then becomes itself a base for the next one in a continuous transformation."Creativity Draws on the Deep Well of the Pastwww.linkedin.com [Italian version here] In the tetralogy "Joseph and His Brothers", Thomas Mann states, "Deep is the well of the past...".

Comments28/10/2016 #7 Fatima WilliamsThank you so much for tagging me on this buzz. @Ali Anani Creativity flows from our deepest roots.. I think I should agree on this, as some of our thoughts come from the sub-conscious mind and we would have never thought that we were capable of thinking something like that before that thought had been woken up. Much of what we think has its base from our deepest roots similar to that of a seed, that gives birth to a fruitful plant which later spread its branches and then provides delicious fruits28/10/2016 #6 Ali Anani#5 This is an example of what you mentioned in your buzz dear @Sara Jacobovici "A "creative" thought always arises from the transformation of a substrate of basic knowledge that (sometimes unknowingly) takes part in the process, and then becomes itself a base for the next one in a continuous transformation.", We are living this transformation and our (you, @Fatima Williams and myself) WPD factor is being transformed by us. Yes, it is a journey with a bottomless end.28/10/2016 #5 Sara Jacobovici#2 Your questions are evocative @Ali Anani. My gut response is to say that flow is a quality of drive. Our drive can be observed, measured, assessed, based on its flow. Do we need to make adjustments, are there any points of blockages, and so on. An important question Dr. Ali.28/10/2016 #1 Ali AnaniYou shall never cease to bewilder me with your great thoughts and in connecting the dots of various experiences @Sara Jacobovici. This is a deep buzz and as deep the bottomless deep well of the past. Depth and creativity- depth of the past, depth of the roots of experiences, and the depth of ideas that all lead to deep creativity. The question is as we dig deeper, the challenges change and new layers of thinking become a necessity. Deep down the ocean we have challenges as animals and plants do, which differ greatly from challenges on the surface. I believe you bring a hugely relevant idea Sara in that creativity and depth are interconnected.
So many worthy issues this buzz brings to the surface. Thank you Sara for sending me deep in the bottomless well of creativity.

Comments28/10/2016 #27 Peter van Doorn#26 Dear @Ali Anani. What is the definition of help?
I am not an infinite source. I feel drained. I do not try to provide the hungry with fish. I give them a fishing rod. Many choose not to use it.
What can I do? I am tempted becoming a hermit. Although it is not me.
My strength seem to be my weakness . Ironic.28/10/2016 #26 Ali Anani#25 Dear @Peter van Doorn- brilliant comment and it is a story on its own. Freeing self from fear brought you other responsibility- dependence of people on you for protection. Truly as thermodynamics says we get nothing for nothing. But, don't you agree that helping others is better than being submerged in ones' own fear> I do long to read your response.28/10/2016 #25 Peter van DoornHow @Ali Anani?
What do you need to lose fear? How can we do it? Just doing it because it seems logic?
"We contaminate our emotions with trying to please others rather than pleasing our inner drive and doing what affectionate us." I agree. But this is not a guide to freedom.
For me, losing submission to fear was the hardest thing I ever did in my life. Did I gain freedom with that? Au contraire . I conquered my fears. And now what? What should I do? In real life I made people depending on me. There is no freedom in that, just responsibility. I lost caring for my own fears, now I am expected to care for the fears of others. No matter how trivial they are to me. Freedom?28/10/2016 #24 Ali Anani#23 Dear brother @Anees Zaidi- I am equally impressed by your very sound comment as I am happy to see you back in action. beBee is not the same in your absence. Yes, we need to remove of the fear of the uncertain from our lives. SPot on as this is the first step to moving on.28/10/2016 #23 Anees ZaidiDear brother @Ali Anani Good day!! a very timely post indeed. We, specially living in this region, are living in the rippling effect of fear. The fear of unknown. Once we embrace the inevitability of this unknown we come out of this fear effect. Death is an uncertain certainty. Once we embrace the inevitability of death the fear of death is removed and we live and spend an enjoyable life. Once we accept 'Every soul will taste death' we are free from all fear and illusions. It is the element of fear that makes 'Wonderment' short-lived. Your closing statement ' self-determination forms a high enough barrier to contain action by negative emotion' is the next step after we remove the fear of unknown from our path. Thanks for sharing your brilliant WPD factor.27/10/2016 #22 Ali Anani#19 ABsolutely stunning your comment is dear @Harvey Lloyd. Your concept of ideas before and after action resonates so strongly with me and leaves me with lots to think about. The value of internal demons shall remain positive and accept the trial and error consequences is ably discussed in your comment. More to discuss on this soon.27/10/2016 #19 Harvey LloydThis is an awesome concept @Ali Anani i would think that a step 1 to this might be the "concept" of success. Emotions are dynamic and changing based on internal and external forces. Ideas are subject to internal forces, in most applications, because we have not yet taken the idea to action. WIthin action, even those who shared your wonder, now can become the triggers to emotional contamination.
What strength will we have when these external forces attack. Although i paint a negative picture of the attack, in reality it is a normal trial and error in the public domain. I have found and i also believe many others have found, when the idea generates from a "service to others" model, our strength emanates from the end goal.
The public domain and its pressing trial and error processes are merely inquiries into the how. If the questions enter the why zone we can answer them through the benefits your success will bring to others.
I believe the attack of a rolling out concept is inevitable. So would should keenly understand our motivations to insure we can sustain the WPD. Internal demons being in control, a prudent review of our motivation/success benefits we can insure no one externally will wake our inner demons.27/10/2016 #18 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCLoved this article Ali Anani. And while many statements resonate, for me, the one which resonates most is "We contaminate our emotions with many negative ones such as fear. Fear is what ties up our minds from seeing more possibilities and options". So very true.27/10/2016 #17 debasish majumderWPD, an amazing concept indeed sir @Ali Anani! i guess, content and form are closely related and we reach to a conclusion from its apparent presentation from its form. for example, from a bottle, hardly we comprehend whether it is made up of plastic or glass, which is fragile. but, from our past experience which has been embossed in our brain, later, we realize whether it is made up of plastic or glass and accordingly we handle the object. from the same soil the seed exploits its required elements to manifest its form. so content and form are intricately related. yes, forms wonder us, as your article sir, enabling us to imbibe the rich content you produce. absolutely stunning post sir. thank you very much for sharing the post.27/10/2016 #14 Mohammed SultanDear Ali Anani,PhD.Your wisdom has safely held you as a pattern. It seems that passion as well as love ,had probably been mortified because we value investment in stock market over the investment in our emotion.Our emotion can easily get contaminated when,under the influence of power exercised on us, we accept the unacceptable .Not only this, but also we try make others comfortable,by considering all that had passed as a mere trifle ,and quite unworthy of being dwelt in. To keep and drive our emotion in the green cluster,we sometimes should learn when and how to say NO ,in order to balance emotions with reason.

Comments27/10/2016 #30 Lisa GallagherPassion can run so deep @Sara Jacobovici. I agree with @Fatima Williams you don't need to be an expert at something to make change or do something different. I even find passion in the simple things, such as the birds chirping right before the sun rises, the tides of the ocean and the smells I take in when near the ocean, out in the forest- these things remind me of the innocence of a child. Pure wonderment we had within us as children. If we can be aware of those passions that stirred us as children, I believe it's always possible to expound on those passions. Many of those scents, noises and senses allowed me to fantasize or dream as a child, I still find myself doing that and yes, I act on some of my dreams as I'm able.27/10/2016 #27 Pamela L. WilliamsAh, @Sara Jacobovici and @Ali Anani, Again rises the question of passion. What is my passion from where does it come from. Every since I wrote that piece I still occasionally contemplate the question. I think you're correct in your thought that it is a hybrid emotion. I can't associate my passion to an emotion, but instead emotions seem to arise from the passion. A perfect example: today at work I was facing a tedious task that was going to take hours/days but then that 'exploring' part of me kicked in and I went on a search for a 'quick fix' you might say (at least less tedious). Before I knew it that internal motivation, that passion that drives me to discover arose. I was on a personal quest and when I'm there, in my mind world, I feel elated. Then I found the fix and I turned hours/days of tedious work into minutes. I felt like I was Columbus and I had just discovered the New World. It didn't matter that the 'fix' already existed in the software I was using, I discovered it for myself, I learned today, my mind expanded just a little. Whoopee!

Comments26/10/2016 #45 Lisa GallagherLeeuwenhoek's work was done because he craved knowledge, not to gain praise. Isn't that how we all should look at life? Whatever I do isn't to gain recognition but rather to either, gain knowledge or help another- purely for the reason of wanting to help, not because I feel I have to. I would never want anyone to feel indebted to me either, it's the circle of life as I see it.26/10/2016 #42 Anonymous#28 #37 #35 #31 A great example of @Ali Anani art knowledge. In order to achieve unrealistically high goals, hopes and expectations, we need more dreamers jointly united far above the merely material goals. We recently see here one inaccurate idea that the fractal structure of a social network is something that is religion and single-mindedness. If we abolish disagreement, we will never reach these lofty goals.An intangible help is also very valuable. It is safe shortcut to sudden serenity.

I highlight the name of dear @Milos Djukic for you rightly highlighted his first name in your comment. I am sure Milos shall find this comment by Deb so enriching and rewarding. I DO love to hear the feedback of Milos on this. I have some initial ideas.
Deb, as for your writing "What we do in each buzz, in each hexagon of the hive, scales so beautifully into am of fractal wonder" I am all the way with you.25/10/2016 #29 Ali Anani@Sara Jacobovici extended this buzz and the exchange of comments here between herself, myself and @Fatima Williams by publishing a great buzz titled Be Passionate. It is a great idea to read both buzzes as one bundle.
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@sara-jacobovici/bee-passionate25/10/2016 #28 Deb HelfrichSo much here. I actually am glad I didn't comment when I first read it, as this nugget from Sara " If we narrow our scope" and how it echoes the two men profiled is very telling. Up to a certain point, history and science benefited from the urge to specialize and drill down and work to understand basic causes. Then, as everything, even knowledge is part of a cycle, we needed to migrate back to a much more broad, global, even universal perspective to integrate all of the knowledge gained via incredibly important specialization.
I believe we are all a part of the new migration away from specialization and separation in work and life to a period of collaboration across many spheres of knowledge and experience. Even our dear Milos, with a specialty like hydrogen embrittlement, through his tireless sharing and connecting and pointing out self-similarity and the nature of fractals is leading us in the new direction.
Now we simply need to figure out how to change the financial reality from rewarding specialists to promoting generalists. And we are all participating, as what could be a better site for generalists bumping into all sorts of specialists than the affinity networking concept of beBee.
What we do in each buzz, in each hexagon of the hive, scales so beautifully into a whole ecosystem of fractal wonder.25/10/2016 #25 Sara Jacobovici#24 Dear @Ali Anani, I started writing my buzz based on your formula which you expanded from @Fatima Williams' comment.

Comments20/10/2016 #5 Harvey Lloyd#4 Yes, it emanates from that series. We went through an exercise with our team a few years back by actually drawing the circle separated by an inner circle. The inner circle was control and the outer was influence. We made the control circle smaller. Much to my amusement folks wanted a larger circle for control. My favorite discussion was over parenting. Parents put their teenage children inside the circle of control. When we questioned their placement they stated,"But i have to be in control I am their parent!" That discussion was both enlightening and sobering for a few. Some reluctantly moved the children to influence. It was a fun experience and opened up a dialogue about separating the two areas.

I appreciate your kind mention of my name and I assure you I have same feelings towards you26/10/2016 #52 Robert CormackHaving been on LinkedIn and Facebook for over ten years, I agree in principle, Javier, but not necessarily in practice. Algorithms, in my opinion, favour a rather strict military precision arrangement where nothing falling outside of requirement is allowed. When the requirement for Facebook is to encourage personal stories, pictures, etc., it also showcases the often silliness of our natures (Look at my dog! Look at my dog!). The interaction it causes amounts to "She's beautiful! What a gorgeous dog!" That's well and good, but so many of us (big US) are weary of the self-proclaimed ME, preferring to interact, hopefully, on a level of interest and concern with the world. Your dog ain't making the world better (cute as she is), and the world isn't going to get better unless we examine and exchange ideas. I much prefer beeBee, where I can read intelligent discourses like #Ali Anani and many others. I want to LEARN not PRONOUNCE.26/10/2016 #51 Ali AnanibeBee is the fusion of the past and the future, the personal and professional interests. It is the platform of choice- with which bees to connect, which hives to establish or join, which topic to engage with or not. It is being authentic without losing social ties.
The emerging trend of triads formation is unique to beBee and triads build social societies.
BeBee is the cell with similar cells building tissues and relevant tissues forming organs. A hive is a cell, few hives may develop into tissues and then into specialized organs. Each organ has its own function, but never forgets it is part of the whole living body, BeBee is the natural buildup and growth.23/10/2016 #46 Don Kerr#1 In fact, beBee rather than a bridge is its own unique roadway. The metaphor does work however and I applaud you for being so direct about the vision for the platform. I am also still gobsmacked by the degree of participation you and your senior team have here. It is unprecedented in my experience and can, if sustained, be a valuable difference-maker. Sharing.22/10/2016 #38 Phil Friedman#26 Thank you, Gerald, for the sour out. You are spot on. As Javier says, there is room for all on beBee, to socialize or engage intellectually, to goof around or be serious. That is why strictly quantitative comparisons between beBee and other platforms is misleading and self-defeating. If it were up to me, I would emphasize, again as Javier does, the "richness" of the platform, and the ability to tailor a personal niche to meet your needs, tastes, and objectives. Cheers!22/10/2016 #36 SUSHIL KUMARThanks Javier to making us understand the differences among these three social media platforms.
Yes, you are very true initially I put my profile in LinkedIn for jobs and seldom used it. After advent of its feature pulse we started using regularly and loved it very well.

We are in search of another platforms whose interests is aligned with ours and finally,we are on bebee to find great writers.

It is my believe that everyone has faith and I agree that there are 2 kinds of faith. I often describe them as Affective Faith and Effective Faith. Affective faith is an overall confidence and trust in things as they are. Such as your semi truck example. Effective faith is more of a giving thing to whatever divinity it is that you believe in. I think there is room for both and, at the end of the day, acknowledging that, despite our beliefs in divinity of some sort, we all navigate this world with a heavy amount of faith.22/10/2016 #4 WILLIAM C.

Check out this blog share from LQ, a Motivational Philosopher - Educational Speaker- Lifestyle Trainer...
Here's a sample, if you can take it ;p . . .
JUST BE YOURSELF
Authenticity is not something you just know about yourself, it is something you create about yourself. You are who you are because you have decided to be that way. ...
Being authentic is a constant state of action, it is not a passive awareness. Your entire life has been spent becoming something through the influence of everything around you.
The first thing you have to do to live authentically as yourself is to evaluate the choices you make on a daily basis and decide if they align with the sort of person you want to be.
Don’t copy. That won’t help you become you. But you can emulate. Take aspects of their successes and fold them into your life and your experience and by doing so create a perfectly unique expression of the values that you honor and that make you, you. Only then can you go around and “just be yourself”.

You spoke to many who are non-confrontational and would prefer to find solutions through means which do not cause discourse. You made so many valid points that I believe many would agree with. Thank you for taking the time to write such a well thought out buzz.20/10/2016 #28 CityVP ManjitIn a social media world everything is opinion and social media extends the megaphone of broadcast to the smallest voice in the remotest part of the planet. We are not simply receiving a tsunami of opinion but we are active agents in creating that tsunami - and then we begin to define expectations, taboos, conditions and rules around the flow of that opinion.
So here I come along writing my opinion and people as their want or way will be, will give an opinion of that opinion. When I entered the world wide web, no one talked about "social media", they talked about Tim Berners-Lee giving away for free that protocol that has enabled this freedom and flow of opinion to be exercised on the world-wide web.
Social media that has arisen since is one part marketing, one part opinion and one part tribalism. It is a lot of things to lots of people but I don't really want to focus on social media. I am interested in pursuing the world wide web as an individual learning lab and still continue to see learning media to be a distinctly different way or mindset than social media.
Learning media is not me selling everyone on my learning, it is an examination of my own opinion and it is individual. That I often get dragged into social media is how socially engineered it has become in our lives and extends us into all sorts of media circus. Will I watch the US debate? No, tonight I would rather learn about logical fallacies https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/ for I know nothing about that - but so much about Clinton and Trump. Social media has become an extension of poor traditional media.

Thanks for sharing some examples of your past work, Phil. Very nice.
Actually, that's pretty much what I tried to do in Comment #41. It's is filled with links to my past work, including: a portfolio of clients, published articles, software, case studies, conference papers, explanatory articles, a gallery of creative artwork, "best practices" examples, explanations of process, university papers, (did I mention the masters in Ed Media - or the masters in Interactive Telecommunications?). It's all there at http://www.jcvtcs.com/. Well, actually, some more writings are at https://jcvtcsblog.wordpress.com/
Be my guest. Later, dude.20/10/2016 #50 Phil Friedman#48 #49 Thanks, Graham, for reading and commenting. And for the kind words --- which are especially gratifying coming as they do from a "contrarian". As an alleged cynic, I personally have great admiration and affection for contrarians, who likewise serve a valuable societal function, IMO. Keep the faith, and watch your six. Cheers!20/10/2016 #49 Graham Edwards#36 Thanks of the shout out @Phil Friedman... my working definition of contrarian is "You say black and I will say white" so we can have the discussion to ensure it's really black. Even if I know it's black, it's always good to pressure test it. lol
When it gets into the real world light you never know what it will look like.20/10/2016 #46 Phil Friedman#44 Yes, Praveen, that is very true. And the world needs all of them --- something I personally have never denied. What I do reject, however, is the notion that we should accept what we believe we cannot change. For as I've said, that is too often an excuse for not doing anything, not even speaking out about something that should not be. Cynics, in the true sense of the word, make people uncomfortable. And to my mind, that is their calling in life, and their function in the scheme of things. Thank you for reading and commenting, as you always do, with genuine insight and understanding. Cheers!20/10/2016 #45 Phil Friedman#41 Thank you for what, John? Pointing out I spelled a word wrong? Isn't that an OC action, for which no thanks are needed or appropriate. As to history, perhaps you should do something like what I've done to put an end to questions about my history, and for pissing matches. See below. :-)

And ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/friedmanphil )20/10/2016 #44 Praveen Raj GullepalliSo, between how things ought to be (An Idealist's preoccupation) and how things are ( A Realist's paradise); we have the Cynics. Whose full time duty it is to compare and rant at this disparity:) And then, there are those, who quietly go about making the Ideal, Real! But it would be an incomplete world without even one of these different kinds! They all inspire each other, don't they dear Phil?20/10/2016 #43 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#26 Read my copy of it in my high school days Gerry...a quiet meditative read it felt...and spawned the love of one particular bike in my heart...The Royal Enfield. Used to see a couple of my uncles take that bike apart and putting all together again all by themselves over lazy weekends at home. They never heard of Pirsig. Lila was a poor follow up i felt when it hit the stands.I recommend Zen &The Art to my younger biker friends, hoping it would make them less hot headed and more contemplative on the journey ;)20/10/2016 #41 John Vaughan#40 The History Guy loves The Record. It is my Friend, @Phil Friedman. I had previous careers in older media (Graphics, Animation, Video, Writing http://www.jcvtcs.com/portfolio/index-newmedia.html) before Digital came along, so I kinda get it ... at least in my own mind. Also: Documentation Manager (http://www.jcvtcs.com/portfolio/dow-jones.html, http://www.jcvtcs.com/services/documentation.html), well-published and a conference "voice" during the Early Daze of Digital (http://www.jcvtcs.com/papers-tcs/index-papers-tcs.html). Have written literally hundreds of professional-grade documents for my 100+ employers & clients (http://www.jcvtcs.com/uxp-tasks/index-uxp-tasks.html). Blah blah blah...
In short: Yes, I "have a clue". I have a shitload of a clue, when it comes right down to it.
To your point: I'm well aware of "the correct editorial device". I'm also painfully aware that the technically-correct-but-stuffy "Elements of Style" are kind of dated - and occasionally inappropriate to this medium. Particularly an aggressively, self-righteously *casual* environment like beBee.
So I deliberately chose to forgo the 'proper' form and just skip ahead to the truth (It's spelled 'cojones') - without the pretense. A simple "thank you' would've sufficed.
Cheers!20/10/2016 #40 Phil Friedman#38 For the record, the correct editorial device to use when quoting a phrase that contains a misspelled word or other error is "[sic]" inserted in the quote immediately after the error. We print media dinosaurs know this... And a lot of other stuff about which digital natives haven't a clue.Cheers!20/10/2016 #37 Gerald HechtSomebody's hacked my account and is making my Profucer Pieces have different wordings--companies calling themselves "Russian banks" are screwing with my shares on google plus and stuff sorry Javier beBee and Juan Imaz but you've been compromised apparently and I've filed with Ft he FBI20/10/2016 #36 Phil Friedman#32 thank you, John, for reading and commenting. I think you agree that cynicism is often the necessary prerequisite to attaining clear vision, particularly on social media. Someone recently asked me if I didn't really mean "skepticism". I explained that a skeptic is actually a cynic without cajones.
@Graham Edwards describes himself as a "contrarian". I am not exactly sure what he means by that, but I do know that he calls 'em as he sees 'em. Which is what cynics do. Cheers!19/10/2016 #35 Phil Friedman#33 Great to hear from you, Linda. Have missed your sensible contributions to the conversation back from the days of Writers4Writers on LinkedIn. Although I am not a beBee brand wrangler, I nevertheless welcome you to this potentially great platform. With a big hug back. Sent to you all the way to Colorado. Cheers!19/10/2016 #33 Linda SkarrupLove how you explore the positive aspects of cynicism.... we often skate along the surface of what seems like a negative personality type or communication style only to find wisdom and truth. I resonant well with your reference to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, it was powerful when first published and remains to be an integral part of our culture....

I sense another Robbins fan... The way you describe reaching threshold: pain in the past, present and future as impetus for "instant" change.

- 15/10/2016SELF-IMPROVEMENT BEGINS WITH SELF-AWARENESS ...
We exist at three levels and we must improve uniformly at all of them : Body, Mind and Soul. But first we must know who or what we are at these levels. At body level, we are matter - not much better than animals, until we evolve inwardly ; at mind level, we are human and fallible. At soul level, we are potentially divine.
A healthy body is energetic and disease-free. Daily exercise, mindful eating, adequate sleep and few other things can ensure that.
A healthy mind is calm and focused, it is positive in its perceptions, attitudes .and emotions. Mind being the interface between the body and soul, is our main issue. Untamed it is our principal hassle, well controlled, it is our greatest asset.
At the soul level, we are wonderful like diamonds but our soul-diamonds are covered with the dust of ego and ignorance, so we reflect not the divine light. Selfless love and service, right living, gratitude and daily meditation can cleanse the soul.
You can take a one-to-one life coaching for 3 to 6 months for help on all these. It is online, and includes several yoga-meditation techniques, spiritual wisdom common to all faiths, and research in modern super-sciences like neurocardiology and PNI, including aura and brainwaves theory.

- 15/10/2016Today's Inspiring thought :
Do not take life's experiences too seriously. Above all, do not let them hurt you, for in reality they are nothing but dream experiences....
If circumstances are bad and you have to bear them, do not make them a part of yourself. Play your part in life, but never forget it is only a role. What you lose in the world will not be a loss to your soul.
Trust in God and destroy fear, which paralyzes all efforts to succeed and attracts the very thing you fear.
- my Master, Shri Paramahansa Yogananda
Comments17/10/2016 #8 Hans Dholakia#7 There is no essential difference between Mother Nature, Spirit and Guru. A true Guru is beyond personality.
My Master saw God in everyone, and he was so humble that every salutation and all the love he received from others, he offered to the altar of God in his heart. He considered all people equal, regardless of differences of religion, nationality or socio-economic status etc. I wasn't born a Christian, but his teachings made me love and adore Christ like my own ; similarly countless Christians in the world now read Hindu scriptures and learn from them by understanding his teachings of universal love and compassion for all - not just for humans, but for plants and animals too, and for every element of nature. For him, nature was alive and vibrant with divine presence..
He never never put himself on a pedestal, never thought he was a leader ; he thought he was a lover and a servant of all. The beauty in his face arose from the beauty of his heart's love and soul's joy deep down ! We can only radiate what we have within... ...15/10/2016 #6 Hans Dholakia#1 Indeed, Joanna. That book is a life-transforming spiritual classic, with palpable living presence of a loving God in its every page. Please take it out from your suitcase and keep it handy. I have been reading it over and over again for about 34 years, and every time I find a new meaning in the same words - the import changes with my receptivity. Nice to know you. Namaste _/\_15/10/2016 #4 Hans Dholakia#3 Hello Peter, Sure life is not for suffering, it is meant for joy. But to enjoy life, one must have wisdom. Ignorance is the root cause of all suffering. To have wisdom, you need a master.
Shady religionists and blind followers have been there in all faiths ; but you can't judge all because of some. Yogis are not after religions, they are after spiritual truth which is common to all. Spirituality is a science, yoga is a spiritual super-science ; far beyond just physical postures, it is a complete way of life.
I have walked this path for few decades now, and there are millions like me who will vouchsafe for the path's authenticity. But you are free to reject it even before trying - free will is man's privilege and its abuse his main misfortune !15/10/2016 #3 Peter van DoornI once viewed a movie about a Syrian pilot locked up in a cage. Isis idiots poured gasoline all over him, and lite the fire.
Was that his karma?
I think it is very easy to be a "master". Most people suffer life. A master only have to say that the suffering benefits them.
In my humble opinion, the same bullshit the Catholic Church used in Europe.
Please people. Start to think for your self. Life is not something you have to suffer. It is not a decease. It is just there.

Comments16/10/2016 #58 CityVP ManjitWhen I look at cults I often see the empath attracted by the narcissist because the narcissist has learned to use emotional intelligence findings about human beings as a manipulation of highly empathetic human beings. Later in such groupings where sexual abuse is discovered within the group, a state of denial may exist except in those empaths whose eyes have been opened by pain - that who they trusted and placed their face in was an incarnate of evil, a monster of a human being.
This is where "real life" is about awakening to truths, while facing those truths must not make us lose faith in the idea of humanity. The cold blooded human being will treat emotion as a manipulation rather than a divine gift and those that are most human have emotional energy flowing in abundance - and when that energy is betrayed, when it has been debased and corrupted, they suffer a further emotional wounding - a wounding of trust and faith in people that was most natural to them.
For those who advocate simply forgiveness for emotional scars that will never heal, they are advocates who do not possess high emotional resonance and sensitivity to life that is a felt experience and more importantly they have not experienced even a fraction of 1% of the pain felt by those whose emotions are remain human skin rather than a suit of armor.
This narcissism is just one example of the toxic. David Foster Wallace faced a cynical and self-interest filled world that he never came to terms with, http://pangeaprogress.blogspot.ca/2015/10/david-foster-wallace-on-toxic.html In facing the real, our memories repeat many times, while the offender only needed to cut us once and often not even realize the wound so inflicted.15/10/2016 #51 Mamen Delgado#50 Yes Aurorasa, to admit our potential to grow and the willing to change is the first and essential step to a new life. I have travelled that road, I'm not the one I used to be, so I do know that change is possible as you say at the beginning of your email. It's a bit easier if we find a reason, a powerful reason, to go through that journey.
I found that reason in my oldest daughter. Powerful enough to swim down to darkness and deal with my inner little girl.
I was lucky, still I am, because Life gave that beautiful opportunity to live another life in this one. But not everybody has the chance, or finds his/her POWERFUL reason. And no one can do it for them.15/10/2016 #50 Aurorasa Sima#49 I bet you´d be a great coach with your love for people and live. That was not a coaching client, he offered to do some other work for me. You´re right once more: the people who would need you most will not come.
It´s positive people that admit their potential to grow and are willing to change.15/10/2016 #49 Mamen DelgadoI really admire your job @Aurorasa Sima, some friends tell me I should have studied Coaching or something related to Emotional Therapy but I always think I couldn't deal with negativity and with people I see clearly they don't want to change, it's easier for them to keep in the dark side or in the "poor of me" way of being.
By the way... The best cheese for pizza is clearly grana padano!!! LOL!! 😂15/10/2016 #47 Aurorasa Sima#46 Yes, there is. I told a negative person, respectful and polite, that I do not want to work with them. They then flipped out and started actions that come close to criminal offenses. You´d pity them if they were not targeting you.
It´s just not nice to see crazy up-close or to be forced to deal with negativity. These people are obviously not well. But they overstrain my patience when it comes to my willingness to help.15/10/2016 #46 Robert CormackWe all deal with destructive people, Aurorasa, even when we think we've made "friends." A few years back, I took a serious look at my friendships over the last 40 years. Some have remained around that long. What surprised me was how many had taken our relationship for granted all that time. So I took a lesson from someone who said, "Sometimes even the best of friendships need to be laid to rest." The ones I decided to "lay to rest" probably don't even know. If you don't call them, nothing happens. But I also discovered I don't miss them. I made room for other people, some good, some bad. I've actually made some friendships that are far more rewarding. My novel would never have gotten done without the help of what I'll call "new friends." They've shown themselves to be smart, loyal and incredibly insightful. There's always hope, in other words.
