2. Notice when you’re over analysing.
3. When someone says something you don’t like, take a deep breath before speaking.
.4. Appreciate that everyone is different.
A crow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life. But one day he saw a swan. “This swan is so white,” he thought, “and I am so black. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.” He expressed his thoughts to the swan. “Actually,” the swan replied, “I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.” The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained, “I lived a very happy life until I saw a peacock. I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.” The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him. After the people had left, the crow approached the peacock. “Dear peacock,” the crow said, “you are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet.”
The peacock replied, “I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet. But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo. I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow, I could happily roam everywhere.” That’s our problem too. We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad. We don’t value what God has given us. This all leads to the vicious cycle of unhappiness. Learn to be happy in what you have instead of looking at what you don’t have. There will always be someone who will have more or less than you have. The person who is satisfied with what he/she has, is the happiest person in the world.

Some terrifying cults are so well-known they can be described with a single word: Manson, Waco, Jeffs, Jonestown. Others may not be as iconic—at least in America—but still provide plenty of nightmare material.Here are five examples, all of which made made screaming headlines during their flashes of notoriety, but have seldom been heard from since.
The key to success is not hard working but smart working.
Reality is not as obvious and simple as we like to think. Some of the things that we accept as true at face value are notoriously wrong. Scientists and philosophers have made every effort to change our common perceptions of it. The 10 examples below will show you what I mean. 1. Great glaciation. Gr…
The act of labeling an emotion distances you from it and gives you a moment to pause your reaction to it. It works for dealing with your own negative emotions, for responding to children in their meltdowns, and for dealing with everyone else. Plus, by saying “he” or “she” is feeling X emotion, you’re stating that someone else is feeling it, not necessarily yourself. Language becomes a barrier between the feeling and your thoughts and makes those feelings less overwhelming.
“Sen No Rikyu the founder of the Japanese Tea Ceremony committed harikiti or ritual suicide by disembowlemnet in 1591 at the order his lord Hidiyoshi. Just before he took his own life his own life he said ‘when I have this sword, there is no Buddha and no patriarchs.’He meant when we have the sword of big mind, there is no dualistic world, and the only thing that exists is this spirit.
The 1985 movie that started it all turned 30 this summer, but more importantly, Wednesday is Oct. 21, 2015 — a.k.a. the date that Marty McFly travels forward in time to in Back to the Future II. There are plenty of parties and a chance to relive the movie on the big screen, but it also seems like a great time for a little reflection, too. So we asked our Things to Do crew to look back and look forward because, after all, it’s Back to the Future.

JAPANESE DEATH POEMS
Written by Zen Monks and Haiku Poets on the Verge of Death

Died on the twenty-seventh day of the first month, 1568 at the age of eighty-nine
My whole life long I’ve sharpened my sword
And now, face to face with death
I unsheathe it, and lo–
The blade is broken–
Died on the twentieth day of the second month, 1387 at the age of sixty-one
Look straight ahead. What’s there?

Every year, hundreds of Jains across India take up the onerous oath – some are monks, others are ordinary people. Interestingly, over 60 percent of the participants are female, and it is believed that women are more strong-willed than men. The practice is more popular with Jains who are ill or dying, but healthy people are also known to participate
Now, German researchers have shown the brain’s endocannabinoid system—the same one affected by marijuana’s ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—may also play a role in producing runner’s high, at least in mice
Any runners out there? When does runners high kick in? I always assumed it was similar to entering a meditative state.
Go run mofo!

In diaphragmatic breathing, you actively expand the abdomen during inhalation. The abdominal expansion occurs via the diaphragm contracting and pressing down on the abdominal contents. Chest expansion is kept at a minimum in this type of breathing. Exhalation is a relaxed process and occurs through the elastic recoil of the chest wall and lungs.Regular practice of diaphragmatic breathing draws the mental focus into what is known as the “belly brain”. It has a calming effect on the mind while, at the same time, potentially strengthens the diaphragm. I recommend practicing diaphragmatic breathing for 5-10 minutes per day. We have included a video link below to guide your practice and aid you in visualization of the movement of the diaphragm and abdomen.
Check the video in the link. Very interesting stuff.
This made me think of the awesome book. “The Sparrow”
The research published this week in the journal Environmental Science and Technology as a pair of studies (here and here) found that 100 mealworms ate up to 39 milligrams of Styrofoam each day and within 24 hours excreted what they didn’t use into what the news release described as “biodegraded fragments that look similar to tiny rabbit droppings.” This excrement, Wu said, appeared to be safe in the soil for crops.
“A decade ago, Linux was seen as the more secure alternative to Windows environments, which suffered the lion’s share of attacks at the time, and companies increasingly adopted Linux as part of their security-hardening efforts,” the Akamai team said. “As the number of Linux environments has grown, the potential opportunity and rewards for criminals has also grown. Attackers will continue to evolve their tactics and tools and security professionals should continue to harden their Linux based systems accordingly.”
These pictures were created in a time well before the introduction of high tech machinery, the industrial revolution, or flying contraptions. The world was clean, and human impact on the environment and our own health was minimal. In the past 100 years alone, the way we’ve ‘progressed’ has harmed our planet and all life on it. A time for change is long overdue, and I’m sure if you asked some artists to depict what the human experience will be like 100 years from now, it wouldn’t be so pretty.
“There are different variations of Mumbley Peg. One version involves two opponents who stand opposite from one another, feet shoulder-width apart. The first player takes his pocket knife and throws it at the ground, so that it sticks into the ground as close as possible to his own foot. The second player take his knife and does the same. The player who sticks his knife closest to his own foot wins. A player could automatically win if he purposely stuck his knife into his own foot. What can we say, this was a time before Xbox 360. Kids needed something do.”
The Pixel C is a 10.2-inch (308 pixels-per-inch) tablet that runs the Android operating system (Android 6.0 Marshmallow, of course). Powering the device is an NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor that is paired with 3GB of RAM (for comparison, the Surface Pro 3 tops out at 8GB, while the iPad Pro comes with 4GB of RAM). The device also features a USB-C port, which brings it in line with the newly announced Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
