People who give are given to. People who care are cared for. And people who love . Being worthy isn't something you earn, All I saw were problems and suffering. Shiva then asked Ganesha what he could have learned not having left Kailash at all since accepting the challenge. Ganesha replied that Shiva had asked them to circle their world three times. And he did just that. For Ganesha, his parents were more than the world. They were the entire universe. So, all Ganesha had to do was circle them three times. He explained to his brother and parents that you can travel far and even cross the boundaries of the universe, but you will always be searching. True happiness, bliss and freedom, Ganesh said, are all closer to home than one realises. Iyengar has said, You do not need to seek freedom in some distant land, for it exists within your own body, heart, mind, and soul. To do so, they say Yes to everything and make themselves available at all time. They haven't developed the make an appointment with me habit. They let others interrupt them all day long instead of asking people to schedule an appointment. They fail to understand how important their focus is. They don't fully realize how repeated interruptions take a huge toll on their overall productivity. What about you?

Are you running the day or is the day running you? And what can you do to reclaim some control over your day? Action steps Using your action guide, write down how you react in the following situations: As your understanding grows, you can always change your mind. In the future, when you have a breakthrough in your thinking, complete a task well, or have an experience that makes you feel fully alive, take a minute to reflect on what thinking talents you just used. It's also useful to notice how your talents show up for you in different domains of life: work, exercise, family, hobbies, or with different people. Through this broad spectrum of observations, you will collect insights that will be the optimal guide for using your thinking talents well. Some people have difficulty identifying their thinking talents, because as a society we have been conditioned to focus attention on fixing our deficits rather than maximizing our strengths. Most training programs emphasize weaknesses that need to be improved. Furthermore, some cultures, religions, and family traditions consider modesty a virtue, thereby eclipsing the ability to even admit one's talents. Therefore, we have developed an additional lens we call the shadow attribute, to make it easier to recognize a talent. It's a way of understanding what the hidden talent is behind particular behaviors. For instance, the shadow attribute for optimism is cheerleading. Then came the chronic respiratory conditions in old men as a result of cigarette-smoking. I was never judgemental about those. They had lived in different times and many of them had been given tins of cigarettes to boost their morale as they prepared to run across a beach in Normandy into a hail of machine-gun fire. Who wouldn't have smoked, in their shoes? Cancer obeyed the same rules. Women succumbed to breast cancer and men to lung and prostate cancers.

Following close behind were bowel, pancreatic and renal cancers. There were rarer cancers, heart and lung conditions and a smattering of neurodegenerative conditions. But in general people died of the same common conditions demonstrated to us in the pathology department during our undergraduate training. When I started as a medical registrar at St Stephen's Hospital in Chelsea in 1983 I had only recently heard of a strange affliction affecting mostly young, gay men. I could now talk to people whom I had earlier dismissed in their devotion to Trump. I could also see how my emotional response was simply that: emotional. The guy told me to f*ck off. He could not abandon his sunk costs; His hatred for Trump had carved a deep hole, so he couldn't climb out. For many people--the longer you cling to an idea, the longer you must cling. Because, like all things in life, we invest in our willingness to stick around. We never say I was wrong, because if we did, we'd never be able to say I told you so. And we've also wasted so much time. In such matters where you meet a mind like this, the other angry person personalizes the debate to such a point that what you say becomes a personal attack on them, and a moral judgment on you. Written words are my visual cues. They are, while more abstract than images, my visual anchor to communication. Oral interactions, which demand spontaneity, often leave us feeling rushed, anxious, and (perfectionists that we are) without closure. Never a conversation is left that I don't spend undue time analyzing and reanalyzing what I did or didn't say. Dialogues happen too fast for me. Often, I think I've gotten the gist of things, only to realize that I've totally missed the forest for the trees, hyperfocused on the details of some transient point in the dialogue (that's especially true in group situations).

That has derailed me both personally and professionally. Printed words make concrete things out of abstract ideas. Like many Aspergirls in particular, I was (and am) hyperlexic: that is, I read vastly more quickly than others, absorb what I am reading, and learned to read overnight without tutelage. Phonics, if I must tell the truth, made no sense to me, and seemed utterly pointless; Hal Puthoff and I found that in carefully controlled experiments [Geller] could psychically perceive and copy pictures that an artist and I would randomly select and draw in an opaque and electrically shielded room. Geller was an excellent remote viewer. Remote viewing is a real phenomenon27 Additional CIA documents discuss remote viewing more generally. They state explicitly that remote viewing is real. See below and the next two articles for extractions from one such document. Formal evaluation of the government's program Upon completion of the Stargate program, two statisticians were asked by Congress and the CIA to evaluate the program's results. One reviewer was Jessica Utts, a statistician from the University of California, Davis, and the 2016 president of the American Statistical Association. Using the standards applied to any other area of science, it is concluded that psychic functioning has been well established. The HAES website, www. Very simply, it acknowledges that good health can best be realized independent from considerations of size. It supports people of all sizes in addressing health directly by adopting healthy behaviors. The goal of HAES isn't to increase your worth; It isn't to get you to become the slim and fit ideal; It isn't to make you a superior human being;

HAES simply teaches the concept of treating your body well because you love it, not because you want to change it. This seemingly subtle difference changes everything. Now, don't misunderstand: HAES isn't saying that every single person is healthy at every single weight ever. Instead, What [HAES] does do is ask for respect and help people shift their focus away from changing their size to enhancing self-care behaviors--so they let weight fall where it may naturally. I then add the dirty socks and delicate underwear to the bags, and once they are full, I wash them separately, empty them to dry the contents and then organise them when I put them back in the underwear drawers. Storage solutions If you have the space, then functional shelving is a great way to keep your laundry area tidy. I love using labelled baskets so that my family know where everything belongs. They're also great for hiding the clean clothes that you haven't got around to sorting out yet. As elsewhere, use clear containers to house your laundry cleaning products. These enable you to see what you have and what needs replacing when you do your weekly shopping list, and also keep everything neatly in one place. Avoiding laundry breakdowns laundry room is often one of the most disorganised and cluttered spaces in our homes. Everything gets dumped there and then we shut the door to hide the mess or pretend to ourselves that it doesn't exist. That didn't jibe with DHH's selective slacking habit. I hate repeating myself. But conventional coders considered such repetition a rite of passage, a barrier to entry for newbies who hadn't paid their dues in programming. A lot of programmers took pride in the Protestant work ethic, like it has to be hard otherwise it's not right, DHH says. He thought that was stupid. I could do a lot of other interesting things with my life, he decided.
