An interesting read - The Art of Power

I came across a very nice book this morning by Thich Nhat Hanh (a Vietnamese Buddhist Zen). I am yet to start reading it. But meanwhile, I would like to share a peak from the book as ‘preview’:
“Our society is founded on a very limited dentition of power, namely wealth, professional success, fame, physical strength, military might, and political control. My dear friends, I suggest that there is another kind of power, a greater power: the power to be happy right in the present moment, free from addiction, fear, despair, discrimination, anger, and ignorance. This power is the birthright of every human being, whether celebrated or unknown, rich or poor, strong or week.” -from The Art of Power

Caution For Car Drivers

For Car Drivers:
Stop immediately on mere doubt of puncture or your tyre will get torn to pieces. I have done that and paid Rs. 2,400 expense of new tyre. While taking car on reverse gear, wait a little and continue looking back or there will be big scratch or broken rear glass. I have done both on separate occasions and paid for each mistake. Never miss a seat belt even for short drive. I saw a dead yesterday.

Love And Life

George Carlin (Age 102) has this to say about LOVE and LIFE:
Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.The only person who is with us our entire life is oneself. Love thyself the most.Surround yourself with people you love.Keep only cheerful friends.Laugh often, long and loudly. Enjoy simple things.

Virtual Vigilance

Assume you are being monitored all the time and behave accordingly, be it chat, social media, Email or any move on internet.

This will make you disciplined, in the virtual life. I know this is equally true for anything in life!
