From the Gita

Posted by in Personal, Religion

 

This is by far one of the best prayers ever.  So intense, that I tend to read this every time I feel frustrated [which has been quite a few times recently 🙂 ] 

Why do you worry ? Why are you scared ?
Whatever happened, it happened for good.
What is happening, is also happening for good.
Whatever will happen, that too will be for good.
What have you lost for which you weep?
What did you bring with you, which you have lost?
What did you produce, which has perished?
You did not bring anything when you were born.
Whatever you have, you have received from Him.
Whatever you will give, you will give to Him.
You came empty handed and you will go the same way.
Don’t be remorseful about the past , nor worry about the future. The present is before you .
What is yours today was someone else’s yesterday and It would be someone else’s the day after. You may think all of yours is for you to keep. This is the main cause of the sorrow.
Change is the nature of life. Remove the thought "Mine and yours" and "Little and big" from your mind. Then everything is yours and you belong to everyone.
Then what are you? surrender yourself to the higher power, the only source of your strength.
He who realizes this will be free from fear, worry and emotion.

Mindmaps

Posted by in Mindmaps

 

This is a mindmap that Ryna made earlier last year. Was just cleaning my computer when chanced upon this mindmap.  Mindmaps are a great way of capturing notes & remembering them. I will update these mindmaps for books I read.

Part of my 2008 goals is to get certified by the Buzan Institute as a certied Buzan Trainer. Let us see how that goes amongst all the things that I have identified as go-do’s for this year.

Bhagavada Gita – One of the best lessons to learn

Posted by in Religion

 

In today’s otherwise busy world, here is something that I read, that brought a level of perspective rarely achieved.

 

Why do you worry ? Why are you scared ?
Whatever happened, it happened for good.
What is happening, is also happening for good.
Whatever will happen, that too will be for good.
What have you lost for which you weep?
What did you bring with you, which you have lost?
What did you produce, which has perished?
You did not bring anything when you were born.
Whatever you have, you have received from Him.
Whatever you will give, you will give to Him.
You came empty handed and you will go the same way.
Don’t be remorseful about the past , nor worry about the future. The present is before you .
What is yours today was someone else’s yesterday and It would be someone else’s the day after. You may think all of yours is for you to keep. This is the main cause of the sorrow.

The Trusted Advisor – by David H Maister

Posted by in Books

Yet another business classic! Sometimes, a lot of effort in managing a business relationship (or even a personal relationship) – ends with limited results. And as in most other things in life, this also seems to have an equation that goes to solve our problems J

This book was a suggested reading by a Trainer who took a class for me earlier this year! And one thing that made me sit up & think real hard was the following equation:

T= (C+R+I)/S

Where T= Trust Factor

C= Credibility

R= Reliability

I=Intimacy

And most importantly S= Self Orientation

And after some introspection, I find it to be Simple & Brilliant!

One can have a very high score on C,R & I and still be so full of themselves (S), that it lowers your trust factor. Go figure!

And some very good tips on how to build the trust factor to maximize what you do in life!

Worth Reading.
