From your heart don’t encourage animosity with anybody | Sri Sri Ravi Shankar – Official Website

There is a Sanskrit verse that says, ‘The real worship of God is to create happiness in the hearts of men’.

Yena Kena Prakarena Yasya Kasyaapi Dehinah,Santosham Janayet Praagya Tadeveshwarapujanam – Happiness in the hearts of people is the real worship of the divine.

What great wisdom, such nice words have been said in the past. That is why it is timeless wisdom.

You don’t even know who wrote it. They didn’t even put their signature, but they gave these gems for life.

nettime> Roberto Verzola: Abundance and the Generative Logic of the Commons
(Question: before refrigerators, what did people do when they had too much food? Answer: they threw a party!)

Human societies learned early on to deal with abundance including temporary ones from forests, rivers, and other hunting and gathering areas by managing them as commons. Taken for granted for a long time, the oceans, the atmosphere, and other global commons are just getting due attention.

Likewise, the creative commons of information, knowledge and culture are now getting renewed attention with the rise of the Internet which, by the way, has become a great showcase of both the concepts of commons and abundance (and their problems, too).

basic rule in group-work

without comments

G. I. Gurdjieff – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In addition, one should never violate the one basic rule in group-work which guarantees the harmonious development of the Work: the practice of external considering.

Whenever group-work fails, the failure may be traced to a lack of external considering among its members.
