THE GIVERS, THE SEEKERS AND THE TAKERS IN LIFE

THE GIVERS, THE SEEKERS AND THE TAKERS IN LIFE

A few weeks ago I attended a local WordPress users group-meeting for the first time. Although my visit was brief, the experience has left a lasting impression on me. Only three individuals in their late 60s or early 70s were at the meeting, other than myself and the organiser. They were all busy working on their laptop, learning how to make webpages, using WordPress. All three learners were white British citizens. There is a reason for mentioning the colour/race of the individuals. My brief interaction with the group made me think about something very fundamental about life and why having a passion in life is vital. When we think about learning, we immediately think of institutions like schools, colleges and universities. But these institutions are a modern phenomenon. When it comes to ...

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF CREATIVITY

Our biggest drawback is our ignorance of selves; we often lack real understandings about ourself and our potentials. We certainly are capable of being creative. Yet, many of us confidently feel satisfied with mediocre attainments. The tragedy is as we age we stop believing in ourselves and stop being creative, which in time makes the brain prone to degenerative diseases. As I have argued in my previous articles, creativity is the best form of therapy available to us, because it is a positive force, a force of life. It can even slow down the symptoms of degenerative diseases. This gift of creativity, when truly embraced, not only heals us, but allows us to reach the peaks of excellence. We just need to unleash our creative powers. Yes, we are creative beings by nature. Creativity is our ...

EXPLOITING THE FULL POWERS OF THE HUMAN HDD (HARD DISK DRIVE)

Life offers lots of opportunities. In fact, opportunities are always there, and will always be there. What we often lack is the necessary knowledge (the understanding) and skills needed for moving forward and achieving our goals. We all wish to reach our potential; we all possess this inner desire to reach for the top positions in every domain. When we fail to do so, we suppress our inner desire and deceive ourselves with feelings of being content with what we have. We abandon our aims and goals. We do this because we lack the understanding and skills needed to bring about a change. We are born with a huge potential at our disposal – a powerful force – and an instinct and enough knowledge which propel us to seek knowledge. A new born baby’s brain is hungry for knowledge and seeks informat...

FROM INCOHERENCE TO COHERENCE

Whether we want to accept the obvious or not, the fact is that we all discriminate – it is in our nature to discriminate. We adore almost everything that we discern as beautiful but we hesitate to hold the same feelings for something that we consider as ugly. The mind is selective in its choices and preferences; it becomes fascinated by beauty and beautiful things. The mind is actually a pleasure seeker and is almost always readily seduced by beauty. The real source of enjoyment that we seek and achieve from beauty is coherence. It is the coherence within the beauty that makes the seduction so successful. There exist deeper relations between the mind and beauty, which is shown by the antipathy for ugliness and incoherence. We can say with certainty that beauty would not be beauty unless i...

THE ARABS BUY THEIR WAY INTO THE 21ST CENTURY

How and when we came to be ruled by the giants is not important, because those who come to rule inevitably become giants themselves. The first giant company (a multinational business) to rule over a nation was the Honourable East India Company (HEIC). It was established in December of 1600 by the queen of England, Elizabeth I. HEIC (1600-1874) originally was established for trade purposes only, to expand trade between England and India. But later, HEIC began to take an active role in the political affairs of India as the Mogul power began to decline. India soon found itself under the occupation of the British and the HEIC. The fact is that wealth not only captures the power, it also subjugates it. Hence, the big businesses could not resist manipulating the traditional centres of power. ...
