VW enters my life once again!

My beetle VW was my first step towards Independence. It was a gift from my husband when I was a young woman in my 30s. My desire to probably drive a VW as my last car during this lifetime was once again fulfilled! Thankyou

Mike Handcock Dave Rogers

Attended an International workshop on the X Factor (presented by  Quantum Business School and the Sage Foundation.)
conducted by Dave Rogers and Mike Handcock.
It particularly taught us:
How to maximize our uniqueness which everyone has..How to get noticed in an interview or deal even if you're not a Star profile.
Some interesting learnings and experiences
Dont think your way through things
feel your way through things
What is a billionaire's formula?
Ability to recognize opportunity multiplied by intuition and topped by decisiveness.
I asked: "What does one do, if one has the passion but less energy (In my case I have a passion to understand spirituality and Interfaith dialogue).
The answer was: Become a consultant
Will you believe that Rael Padamsee said: I will contact you to become a consultant for my plays based on religious stories! :)

Aspi Supriya Kitaab Khaana

Like wine, it feels one can never have enough of Sufi Poetry. After last month's evening with Sufi poetry, those who came wanted some more. So in this month's Poetry Corner at Kitabkhana, we continue where we left off, with a focus on Omar Khayyam this time.
Myself when young did eagerly frequent
Doctor and Saint, and heard great Argument
About it and about: but evermore
Came out by the same Door as in I went.
“The very best poems produce a shift in awareness that takes us outside ourselves. In this place, momentarily, time seems to slow down or even stop. From this vantage point, we view life from another perspective — one that seems strangely familiar, and perhaps even more real, than our casual, day-to-day way of looking at things. In this way, by stepping beyond ourselves into the Tavern of Wonder, we catch a glimpse of what the deeper self, and our deeper ties, are really like.”
— From the introduction to Love’s Alchemy: Poems from the Sufi Tradition by David and Sabrineh Fideler
Sufi’s are lovers of the truth. Through love and devotion they seek to become one with their beloved. Through poetry many of the great Sufi mystics have been able to encapsulate and share their spiritual experiences.

Aspi Mistry is the founder member of the Dharma Rain Centre for Buddhist Studies, Free Tibet and human rights activist, who prays, with apologies to Shantideva, “May I be a thorn in the sides of those who desperately need a thorn in their sides…”

As such they introduced extremely interesting and inspiring characters who followed their heart and passion with little else and reached heights...
