    The Straight Dope on Learning Styles

    The glorious truth is that people think and learn differently. Some people like words, but not pictures, some like movements rather than sounds. Why are people different? Who knows, perhaps because Allah loves wondrous variety.

    Listen to the sound of silence, then you can truly hear
    Look into the darkness, then you can truly see
    Reach out and touch the emptiness, then you can truly feel

    For these are the moments when thoughts meet,
    knowing each other unknowingly,
    a fading fear unseen, a transparent wall of reluctance inbetween

    Why wait for Love?.... Let Love's meaning truly unfold

    Why hold back desire?....Let Love's fathomless depth find its eternal fire

    Unexpected time, why cruelly steal love's moments away?

    To capture the fragments of hope and ecstasy.....keeping alive forever

    Love's potent youthful, bold and senseless, endless desires

    How is possible to know what and where is our original self?

    I always wondering how people know what is good and what is bad. At first , it seems to me that it was their choice. Now I know how naive I was. A simple mind can see that people are like machines. More like computers. You feed them with a program and they follow it. Language , body language , expression , communication , religion , everything it's a program of the society. Starting with family programming we copy them and follow blindly.

    21 bad habits

    A helpful Amazon reviewer has taken the time to summarise the 21 bad habits (well, 20 actually) outlined by Marshall Goldsmith in his book "What Got You Here Won't Get You There".

    I've reposted them below:

    Letting winning get in the way of relationships you need
    Dropping too many ideas on those who work for you
    Being judgmental rather than helpful
    Slamming people in public or behind their backs
    Making comments that indicate you disagree with everything that's just been said
    Showing off how smart you think you are
    Saying anything in anger
    Being negative

    MA in Everything

    I've been thinking for a while now about going back into full-time education.

    I'm very clear that I don't want to be an academic or study at an academic institution though. I want to spend a year studying all the various things I'm interested in - some quite formally, some just for the fun of it. I want to design my own Masters course and spend a year learning everything I've always wanted to.

    So I've been thinking about what I'd like to study. So far I've got:

    * Pop, jazz, gospel and ragtime piano
    * Folk guitar
    * Singing, particularly soul/gospel vocal
    * Graphic design

    Bindrabani Sarang - a cooling effect at mid-day.... can intoxicate poisonous snakes

    An afternoon Raag from the land of Krishna(Vrundavan or Brindaban), this is a charming pentatonic Raag which omits the gandhar(Ga) and dhaivat(Dha) while making use of both the nishad(Ni) - shuddha(natural) and komal(flat) in the descent. It evokes the mood of a langurous summer afternoon, with its bright sunlight and deep shadows.

    Sarang is reputed to have acquired its name from the famous 14th century music theorist, Sarangadeva. The Sarang raga consists of a group of seven, each of which is combined with some other raga.

    Tai Chi Chuan - What is it?

    As I see it, Tai Chi Chuan is:

    A martial art,
    A philosophy,
    A Way of Life.
    and where you take it to is up to you.

    It starts off as something purely physical, you learn to breath properly, again. You learn to correct things like posture, in all it's aspects. You become aware of how your body works. You learn how to move, on your own and in conjunction with other people, for good and ill.
