Devil

Leave a comment

 The English word ‘devil’ is very beautiful.
If you read it backwards it becomes ‘lived.’
That which is lived becomes divine,
and that which is not lived becomes devil.
Only the lived is transformed into godliness; the unlived turns poisonous.
And today you postpone, and whatsoever remains unlived in you will hang around you like a weight. If you had lived it you would have been free of it.
It would not have haunted you, it would not have tortured you.

The Truth About IIPM’s Tall Claims

1 Comment

Just came across the article in JAM mag’s website which  reveals the truth behind this self-made-star institute.
It claims that all the hype surrounding the IIPM (The Indian Institute of Planning and Management) is false.
Right from the placements offered , rankings mentioned, fake facilities promised, to the assosiasion with extreamly low profile UK college.
It claims that only 50% of the students actually get placed and that too in some direct marketing job and others have to hunt their dream job of their own.
The degree offered is not recognised by AICTE, UGC or other state acts. And the rankings mentioned according to Outlook are also fake.
Writer found that none of the company mentioned in the employer’s list had ever visited the campus.
Just go through the article, its very well written.
And spread the word and save our freinds from falling into the IIPM’s trap.

    Give..

     A man who is happy with himself is full of love, flowing. He does not need anybody’s love, hence he can give. When you are in need how can you give?
    You are a beggar. And when you can give, much love comes towards you.
    It is a response, a natural response.

    10. Change (Zen tarot Card)

    Zen Tarot Card
    Change

    Life repeats itself mindlessly – unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like a wheel. That’s why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death, the wheel of time. It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death, death is followed by birth; love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love; success is followed by failure, failure is followed by success.

    Just see! If you can watch just for a few days, you will see a pattern emerging, a wheel pattern. One day, a fine morning, you are feeling so good and so happy, and another day you are so dull, so dead that you start thinking of committing suicide. And just the other day you were so full of life, so blissful that you were feeling thankful to God, that you were in a mood of deep gratefulness, and today there is great complaint and you don’t see the point why one should go on living…. And it goes on and on, but you don’t see the pattern. Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it.

    Commentary:

    The symbol in this card is an enormous wheel representing time, fate, karma. Galaxies spin around this constantly moving circle, and the twelve signs of the zodiac appear on its circumference. Just inside the circumference are the eight trigrams of the I Ching, and even closer to the center are the four directions, each illuminated by the energy of lightning. The spinning triangle is at this moment pointed upward, toward the divine, and the Chinese symbol of yin and yang, male and female, creative and receptive, lies at the center.

    It has often been said that the only unchanging thing in the world is change itself. Life is continuously changing, evolving, dying and being reborn. All opposites play a part in this vast circular pattern. If you cling to the edge of the wheel you can get dizzy! Move toward the center of the cyclone and relax, knowing that this too will pass.

    Be a spendthrift while spending Love..

    Love is not a quantity, it is a quality, and a quality of a certain category that grows by giving, and dies if you hold it. If you are miserly about it, it dies.
    So be really a spendthrift! Don´t bother to whom.
