Whenever faced with a situation leading to horns of dilemma; that could cause me to procrastinate, delay, be in double minds like sitting on the horns of Dilemma, I go back to two holy books. 1. A Bible 2. BhagvadGita. I randomly select 2 verses and usually find my answers. I named it as Jay’s Tantra way.
See an example:
This is what Gita said.
Passage: No one is fierce enough to rouse it. Who then is able to stand against me?
This is what the Bible verse said.
See some similarities in the two random verses?
- The doubt in my heart is born out of ignorance and I need to establish myself in Yoga and stand up for fight- Cut my doubt in the heart with the sword of wisdom.
- Who is able to stand against you? There is no one fierce enough to rouse it.
I derived the following meaning – the chosen path is right. I need to concentrate, meditate and be ready for the fight whether or not it happens.
I also know, I have class and it will have to be a really fierce fight, if someone were to oppose or put hurdles in my chosen path.
Sounds simple, NO? I like this technique to work all the time.
Did you know…
… that today is San Francisco’s Birthday? In 1776, Spanish missionaries began the first settlement in the area that was to become the city of San Francisco. Yerba Buena, the original name of San Francisco, was taken from the plant with the same name that grew around the settlement next to the Mission San Francisco de Asis, “Mission Dolores.”
Today’s Inspirational Quote:
“Never be bullied into silence, never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, define yourself.”
— Harvey Fierstein
Never stop dreaming.
Bite sized business.
Standards of excellence.
Designed for you.
Love of life.
Unleash the power.
As soon as the moon doesn’t fall, a confession shall bring forth a country’s new rise and the deaths of a million.
As soon as wolves howl together, the two faced one shall cause the fall of a false god and a rise in immorality.
As soon as what’s shrouded is revealed, an overheard conversation shall usher forth a generation of health.
When the day comes that mountains move and rivers shiver, a terrible act of cruelty shall bring an age of pain.
Heavenly Mother, ruler in the skies, in my time of need I come to you. Guide my heart so I might find my path. I seek this of you in your eternal presence, o giver of love. Fa
Contrasts Bring Concepts.
Live Or Not, Life Continues.
A Mind Like A Circus.
No Good Comes From A Favor.
Fog On A Field Acts As A Shield.
In order to protect said time, space, and energy, Ajayi developed a set of five questions that she asks herself when an opportunity is presented:
Will I enjoy it?
Does it pay my fee?
Is this something different that will challenge me or help me grow in some way?
Does this elevate my profile?
Does this put me in front of a larger audience?

A Makerspace for Everyone
Imagine a place where inventors and hobbyists alike can collaborate, accelerate innovation and build community with magical results.
Robin Hooker | UPS
Growing up tinkering in his father’s workshop, Robin Hooker always had a space to reimagine the world – to modulate, mashup, remix and repair things. As an adult, he realized not everyone has access to a space where they can safely experiment.
Hooker argues for democratizing access to public, shared workshops, commonly called “makerspaces,” which provide room for the collision of ideas – where inventors and hobbyists alike can collaborate, accelerate innovation and build community with magical results.

Religious forms and ceremonies as well as rituals and injunctions of different creeds and spiritual institutions have a tendency to encourage the spirit of love and worship; and as such, they are to a limited extent helpful in wearing out the ego-shell in which human consciousness is caught.
But if they are unintelligently and mechanically followed, the inner spirit of love and worship gets dried up; and then they only result in hardening the ego-shell rather than wearing it out.
Therefore, rituals and ceremonies cannot carry a man very far on the Path: and if they are unintelligently followed, they create as much binding as any other unintelligent action.

Entrepreneurs have a reputation for being fearless. After all, it takes guts to start a business on your own! But there’s one thing that we’re all afraid of: failure.
We’re afraid that if we make just one mistake, our company will fail. But in reality, a single mistake won’t bring our businesses crashing down to the ground. Our fear of failure does far more damage than failure itself!
