New and different ways of walking and dancing have to be integrated slowly...with care...without rush

One thing I learnt very beautifully these last few weeks is that - sustainable change needs to happen one step at a time, that new and different ways of walking and dancing have to be integrated slowly......with care......without rush........
One has to be very attentive and go with the flow and the level of readiness of the people, instead of imposing, pushing or giving more information than they want to receive, thus creating resistance in them!
A green juice in the morning, a smoothie as a pudding, more water and less sherbets, flax oils instead of refined oils, steaming instead of frying, dates or honey instead of white sugar, nuts and seeds instead of chips and biscuits, one cooked meal a day instead of three, more variety of healthy whole flours instead of white and refined.......
So many ways to begin a radical transformation, a quantum change made with little leaps and tiny jumps........Posted by Neeta at 19:51 integral dynamic healing 9:49 AM

The Dawn of Indian Music in the West, by Peter Lavezzoli

The Dawn of Indian Music in the West, by Peter Lavezzoli. You need to care about the topic, but today this became one of my favorite non-fiction books, ever. I bought a copy just to express my loyalty to the author. I've said this before, but lack of knowledge of Indian classical music is the biggest gap in the education -- and enjoyment -- of many many smart people. This is one very good introduction but it offers much to the veteran as well. -- Bonk (What I've been Reading) from Marginal Revolution by Tyler Cowen

None can reach heaven who has not passed through hell

Tusar N Mohapatra said... 9:46 AM, March 12, 2008

May be the “painful” “knotted up verbiage” is also brimming with poetry. And that is perhaps the sap that lubricates the rest-less wheels of the creation and recreation. The most searching and subverting questions have been posed by Derrida. His inferences are equally spine-chilling. But there lies the beauty of the whole project. We have done with the interrogations, bottomed out. Let’s move on! Or, back to the Vedas, rather. [TNM]

None can reach heaven who has not passed through hell. (Savitri: Page 227)
