Varanasi, once Banares

I was here where this video is shot. And I saw these people and felt what they speak. Paramahansa Yogananda and his guru, Sri Yukteswar, were in Varanasi when it was still called Banares. Vanranasi is considered the holiest of cities in India. The streets are small, narrow and crowded. The Ganges, the most sacred river to Hindu, flows by filled with signs of life and the not-so-enticing signs of death. People bathe, swim, drink from […]

A study in the sociological paradigm of leadership

This was posted by Scott Jordan of ScottEvest in a Facebook entry.  Aside from the visual of poor dancing, the message is great: Remember the advice: Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching. Sing like nobody’s listening. Live like it’s Heaven on Earch. Chesa www.computergoddess.com

Imagine Good Online!

Imagine that instead of saying something negative, positive recommendations can easily be  posted about your business. I know that most people who have a business like their business, do the best they can to satisfy their customers, and have only expansion and growth ahead of them as part of their hopes and dreams. There is now a way to create a new website for your business for free and the site will encourage other businesses […]

The Price of Privacy

What a topic today! The revelations about NSA’s encroachments on the privacy of American citizens and the far-reaching impact of  U.S. covert operations around the world bring up some serious questions. Are we giving up our civil liberties for real protection against terrorism? To me, it’s mainly about trust. Do I trust that my government has my best interests at heart or is this invasion under the guise of protecting me from terrorism just a […]

Tiger hugs man

Doesn’t this make you smile to your toes? Makes me continue to believe that peace is possible. Source: h-a-m-p-s-h-i-r-e.tumblr.com via Megastarmedia.com on Pinterest

What is your shame/

I think that one of the most crippling emotions anyone should have to deal with is shame. Deep or superficial, it’s crippling, burdensome and never released. I have known two or more moments of shame, but the one incident that impressed me the most is when I was not quite 10 years old. We lived in the country, a place called Pleasant Vally, about 10 miles from town. Every Friday we got into the habit […]

Invisible Children – KONY • 2012

You must take the time to view this video. I read that if you haven’t heard of Joseph Kony, you must be living under a rock. Well, it’s time to crawl out from under that rock and see what is going on in Central Africa. This video as of today has 79,927,048 views – and growing. I have a great weakness – I cannot handle injustice and war. It makes me feel helpless. It makes […]

Seven days of tapping to success..

Okay, I’m trying this with my brother. Watch this tape each day for seven days: I’ll report in next week. Well, it’s next week…. The last statement Margaret makes in her video is, “Try it for a week. You’ll see some interesting things happening around money…” I found this to be true. When paying bills last week, three or four bills turned out to be already paid, unnecessary to pay, or requiring less than I […]

Illusions in the mirror – or delusions in my mind?

The face looking back at me in the mirror isn’t all that bad. Could use some “corrective attention” but otherwise, reasonably attractive. So what’s the problem? Cameras and video cams all display the same awful rendition of the face in the mirror. Changing the light reduces the bizarro representation somewhat, but correcting only very little, certainly not enough to sooth my vanity. What is that? Really? I’m just not one of those people for whom the […]

What does not having a relationship mean?

I look at couples, long-time couples, and realize that the choices I have made have had consequences beyond just getting away from what didn’t work. Now I’m dealing with watching myself live a life I didn’t really plan. Given the choices I have made, here’s what I love about being “with” someone: Saturday morning chores — shopping, cleaning, doing the stuff of daily living. Really, I miss this. Expecting to see someone at home when […]

What makes someone phenomenal?

This has been rattling around in my head in the wake of seeing Steven Jobs step down at Apple. What makes one person’s efforts result in top star recognition and another person’s efforts great within their local realm only? These are the people making a difference in the world. We know of many giants who are remembered for their phenomenal efforts and outcome: Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, Jr, Mahatma Gandhi, Steven Jobs, some sports […]

How do you focus successfully?

We’ve all heard about The Secret. One of the foundation beliefs of that philosophy is that what you focus upon will stimulate more of it in your life. So why can’t I simply focus on money and get more of it? Successful focusing depends on the feelings that surround your point of focus. For example, if I focus on how great it is to have money available whenever I need it and I can imagine this […]

Can I make a difference?

Where would you like to make a difference? In the world; in your community; in your home; in your own life? the answer is, absolutely yes. What you see in life and interact with is a reflection of what you caused to occur.  So if you focus on where you are, acknowledge your gratitude for where you are; and create an intention of moving from where you re to where you want to be, you […]

Can one person make a difference?

Imagine you stop at the local 7-11 on your way to work for a cup of coffee.  The cashier behind the counter is a 40-something woman, unhealthily heavy, and with the most non-emotional look on her face.  You can understand that this is a minimum wage job, and most likely, not one she considered as part of her career path. Your next move is important. You can reinforce the cashier’s viewpoint of life — that […]

What is the face of power?

We’ve all heard:  Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  This has always been a caustic, untrusting view of life. But in the end, for most people who gather and attain power, I suppose this statement is true. To explore further, let’s look at who gains power and what choices they have to make as they attain that power. Power is symbolic and symptomatic of achieving a level of awareness where the utilization of energy […]
