How Women Bring Peace
Adapted from Healing and Empowering the Feminine, by Sylvia Shaindel Senensky
(Chiron Publications, 2003).
Here is a timely reminder of what can happen when women join together in an
effort to create peace.
Bat Shalom is an organization of Palestinian and Israeli women created in spite
of the tremendous opposition to any camaraderie between the two sides.
On May 7, 2002, their director, Terry Greenblatt, gave a speech at the UN.
This inspiring excerpt speaks clearly of why women must be involved in the peace
process and what we have to contribute.
You need us, because if the goal is not simply the absence of war, but the
creation of a sustainable peace by fostering fundamental societal changes, we
are crucial to everyone's security concerns.
You need us, because wars are no longer fought on battlefields.
You have brought the war home to us.
Many more civilians than soldiers are being killed in ours and other conflicts
around the world.
The wars are being waged now on our doorsteps and in our living rooms and in our
sacred houses and ceremonies of religious worship, and women have a vested
interest in keeping families and communities safe.
You need us because we continue to hold human rights and the sanctity of life as
paramount values, and unfortunately today, they are too easily being bartered
away as either obstacles to security policies or as incongruent with national
You need us because we have developed a process and socio-political fluency that
keeps authentic and productive dialogue moving forward, even as the violence
escalates and both sides continue to terrorize one another.
Women's characteristic life experience gives us the potential for two things: a
very special kind of intelligence, social intelligence, and a very special kind
of courage, social courage.
We have developed the courage to cross the lines of difference drawn between us,
which are also the lines drawn inside our heads.
And the intelligence to do it safely, without a gun or a bomb, and to do it
And most importantly, we are learning to shift our positions, finding ourselves
moving towards each other, without tearing up our roots in the process.
Even when we are women whose very existence and narrative contradicts each
other, we will talk--we will not shoot.
You need us because we women are willing to sit together on the same side of the
table and together look at our complex joint history, with the commitment and
intention of not getting up until--in respect and reciprocity--we can get up
together and begin our new history and fulfil our joint destiny.
Senensky goes on to write:
We need to join together in community grounded in simple truths.
Pain is our teacher, not our enemy.
Love and compassion for all is our goal.
To create a world where people have the opportunity to become wholly who they
are is what we are striving for.
Women need to reach out to and receive each other, simultaneously keening our
grief and dancing our joy.
We need to raise our voices.
We need to know what we must say "Yes" to and what we must say "No" to, and do
Solely, collectively, it makes no difference.
It is time for each of us to journey to our centre to answer the question of who
Time is short.
Our planet is failing.
Our only choice is to find our voices and live from a place of integrity, love,
and fierce compassion.

P.S. I know this is not a political forum, I debated whether I should post this
or not. however, I found the points very appealing and maybe, we can make a
little difference by changing our attitude. And although this is addressed to
women by a woman, I think men should take time out and read it anyway. Most
importantly, this is not subjected for further discussion.
sorry abt this buddy,
but i ditnt quite get it, whats the point of this story?
I have a games center wherein I am not able to track time spent on the machine
by customers. If anyone could help me with a software that keeps track of
"logging on" and "logging off" of the machine (PC) by sending the setup to my
I am made to belive that Adobe PDF allows one to create electronic signatures.
Can someone tell me how to go about it?

Honour and Shame from no condition rise;
Act well your part,there all the honour lies.
Not very long ago,there was a time when various professions were classified as
'worthy' and 'unworthy'.A lawyer's profession was considered tobe worthy,so
was a doctor's or an administrator's,while the work of a mechanic or a labourer
was dismissed as unworthy.But this kind of classification is out of tune with
morden times.Now what makes a person worthy or unworthy is the quality of his
work and not its nature .If done with sincerity and dedication,a labourer's work
is capable of winning him great applause while a second -rate doctors keep
idling away his time in his clinic with no one liking to peep in and say
'hello'.Beginning life as a frist -rate shoe-shine boy is more creditable than
beginning life as a second or third-rate engineer.The frist one is born to get
places;the second one will keep rotting in his office for ever.Ask some one what
is likely to bring glory---honesty in a shopkeeper or corruption in a
mimister.Nothing is needed to answer that an honest shopkeeper can win greater
glory than a corrupt minister.
Alexander Pope was quite justified in saying
Honour and Shame from no condition rise;
Act well your part,there all the honour lies.
With warm regards,
In this week's one-on-one with Creativegarh, we have Anand Kumar from Hyderabad.
Anand is a poet, an advertising professional and an avid traveller. And I have
to add, Anand has been with the group since the very early days of Creativegarh
when our membership count was still in two digits.
Creativegarh: Can you give us a brief overview of your life as a creative
Anand Kumar: I've always wanted to write. And yet, I am one of those people who
doesn't have even the vaguest qualifications to do so!
Poetry was (and still is) an escape for me. So my earliest affair with things
creative started with dabbling with words to try and come up with something,
Somewhere down the line, I picked up an interest in carpentry and today have a
chest full of chisels, saws, hammers and what not.
Somewhere further down the line, I decided on a career in copy (advertising) and
adopted the tag of "creative".
Yet, I really do not know if I am creative. I would rather describe myself as a
wannabee writer, an amateur poet, an avid biker and traveler, a once-in-a-while
carpenter, a wordsmith (and strategist) for traditional and emerging media and a
And somehow, I am happy and contented (within limits) being all of the above
while trying to manage my personal and professional lives.
CG: What does being 'creative' mean to you?
AK: I believe creativity is all about being original, irreverent, questioning
and mature at the same time. Originality because you do need to see the problem
with your "own" inner eye if you want to find a solution that is born out of
"you". Irreverence, because there are too many holy cows, too much of jargon,
too many rules that could imprison you. Maturity because, you need it to see the
bigger picture, you it need to have the strength to know that you may be wrong
and the problem requires reworking.
Aha, did I not say "Questioning" too?
That's for all my fellow advertising and "creative career wallahs" out here
primarily. I mean, I have spent 8 hard years in this line fighting with
everybody from Art Directors to Agency Bosses on this and no wonder I am still
where I started.
Because nobody wants you to ask them questions, everybody wants to use cliches
like, "Yeah, I know".
But, I question and ensure I get the answers before I work.
Because, my work cannot be really creative otherwise!
CG: What are some of the ways, besides your main, chosen creative field, that
you express your creativity?
AK: I do not know if I can call my chosen field "creative" any more!
Anyway, I try my hand at all kinds of writing. Travelogues, poetry and the like.
I do some carpentry once in a while though most of the time it is just
removing all the tools to put them back.
And I do not really know if I can call map-reading and google research to
discover some paradise close by, to bike to over the weekend, creative.
CG: What or who are some of the inspirational influences on your creativity?
AK: The books I have read have inspired me to read more. The places I have
ridden through have inspired me to ride more. In short, I would say that we have
inspiration all around us. In all the living, breathing and dreaming moments of
life. All we need to do is keep ourself open to it and let it start a train of
thoughts moving in us!
Stability wise, my parents have been (and are) a big inspiration. Not because
that they are into creative vocations but because they have understood me in
their own way.
Work wise, the greatest influence on me has been Mr. Gunnam Ganga Raju, for his
ability to give me the utmost freedom and getting the best work out of me.
Pursuits wise, the roads I have ridden have been an inspiration. Because,
somewhere deep down I have developed the strength to know that there are times
when life is a bad road, but a good rider can cope with those stretches, just
ride it out and thereafter the road can only become better!
And yes, I would say nature is my biggest inspiration. I do not have the liberty
of being a painter or a photographer who can paint / shoot the glory of
nature. So when I am touched inside by a magical moment; like the one when i see
a black sunbird with an emerald green throat dipping into a blood-red flower, or
"Godlight" a hundred kilometres out of the city besides a Lambada village, all I
can do is write.
CG: What are 'those little things you do' to keep yourself in the creative flow
AK: I keep reminding myself that "even this shall pass away" when I am faced
with bad moments or bottlenecks. I just stop working if I think I am
overstressing myself. I catch up with the newspapers, talk to colleagues or just
look at my old work to find out ways I could have made it better!
CG: Have you found ways to integrate your creative and 'working' time and tasks
and if so, how?
AK: I'll pass this :-)
CG: How successful have you been able to find a balance between creative
satisfaction and social acceptance (client appreciation)? If so, how?
AK: I'll pass this too..
CG: What new idea or area of creativity has inspired you recently? How did you
become aware of this new inspiration?
AK: Well, I am realizing that traveling can be really creative. I mean purists
may say that travel by itself doesn't result in anything, basically because you
are left primarily with intangibles like memories of sights, sounds and other
experiences. But then, these very memories can be the well-spring of original
thought. These very memories can be an archive on your cerebral hard disk.
I would say I have been a drifter all my life. And yet, someday I hope to write
a book about it.
CG: What words would you offer to other creative people to inspire and encourage
AK: Be humble, free yourself from your ego, realise you are talented and most
importantly give your work the "hard work" it deserves.
And do good!
CG: What do you have to say about Creativegarh and its efforts?
AK: I have been here for sometime. I read all the posts out here. And I would
love to sit and talk with Ank face to face sometime or to ride along with Jim on
a Harley or discuss Scraptures with Arun. But then its always a question of
finding enough time!
Well, coming to the question, I would say that this is a nice forum and is
slowly becoming an archive of some of the most creative and original thinking
one can get on the web!
And, I do mean it.
CG: Where can people have a look at your work and contact you?
AK: I know I gotta stop being a bum :-))))
As of now I would be happy to show my poetry to anyone who's physically
Someday soon, I will have everything online.
But its always a question of finding enough time!
CG: Thanks Anand!
The thing with Zen Stories is that it is always open to personal interpretation.
Now, I am assuming that the monks had a vow of living a life of celibacy,
because if that would not be the case, then the monk would not writing that
letter to Eshun, insisting that they meet privately. Even if I assume that vow
of celibacy does not feature, the request to meet in private meant that the monk
thought it was wrong to be with Eshun in open.
Eshun on her part did not care for anyone's love or care about the taboo factor,
because she did nothing wrong and was not ashamed of what had happened. She
actually challenged and taunted the monk in open, by stating, "If you really
love me so much, come and embrace me now."
The fact is most people state that they love someone too much, but then there is
also an element of fear, insecurity, social norms, secrecy, and so many
different factors that comes in the way.
A simple example I'd give, I have a friend, who is a perfect gentleman, his
girlfriend goes and stays with him and they don't do anything in private that
might shock conservative people.
However, she lies to her family that she is staying with a girlfriend. This is
simply because if a guy is living alone and a girl goes and stays with him, it
is automatically assumed that they are having you know what, even they don't go
Anyway, coming back to the story, if you really love someone or something, there
is no shame; no bindings, no nothing that can stop you from accepting and
achieving it without reservations.
Its one thing to say, "I love you" and another to actually mean it. I always
state that most people love the idea of being in love, but they are not in love.
Think why the story ends with her statement, because that's the key, the monk
never would have had the guts to do that.
That's my interpretation and I hope that made sense, however, with each story,
you can come up with your own interpretation.

Short Performance by GEETA CHANDRAN on Timeless Beauty
and a Talk on
TIMELESS BEAUTY IN THE ARTS AND EVERYDAY LIFE,
by Author and Visionary JOHN LANE on the occasion of the India Launch of his
new book by the same title.
Date: Friday, 9 April 2004
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Venue: Auditorium, India International Centre, 40 Lodi Estate, New Delhi-110003
To co-incide with the India launch of The Viveka Foundation's new publication,
Timeless Beauty - in the arts and everyday life, John Lane negotiates a new
relationship between beauty and the human being. Beauty is not just what is
pretty or pleasing to the eye, but is the opposite of ugliness. The lack of a
sense of ecological well-being is ugliness, as much as war, hunger, or excessive
competition and commerce. Beauty is good nutritious food and clean drinking
water, it is contentment of the spirit and peace without, it is nourishment of
the soul. It is something that gives us dignity as a species. John Lane calls us
to awaken to the possibilities of a culture that recognises the importance of
beauty, and to acknowledge that we are only fully human when in contact with the
beautiful. He ends the book by reflecting on the Navajo word for beauty, "Hozho"
and their daily prayer to this principle which stresses a great lesson: It
takes just one step to climb a mountain. One step at a time, every moment, every
In his book John Lane writes, "It was my desire to reinstate beauty as a vital
aspect of everyday life. Beauty is critical to our future well being, and a
fundamental component of any civilized life. We neglect it at our peril. So, if
I were asked what I wanted to accomplish with this book, I would say it's to
contribute to a necessary vision of sanity and hope."

The Ten Vibrations of the World
Adapted from Kabbalah of Prayer, by Shulamit Elson (Lindisfarne Books, 2004).
The Kabbalah teaches that the Divine created the universe with vibrations.
These vibrations became the foundation of everything that is, bringing into the
world different aspects of the Divine nature.
In the empty space that existed before creation, these vibrations took form as
ten emanations, the ten fundamental organizing principles of the world.
Read here about the vibrations of wisdom, understanding, unconditional love, and
more. . .
Keter (Crown) is visualized just above the head. It can be thought of as the
vibration through which the light of all creation continuously flows.
Unapproachable, unknowable, impossible to grasp, it is the emanation that
enables the Tree of Life, and therefore the world, to exist.
Hokhmah (Wisdom) is visualized on the right side of the head. One way to think
of it is as an enlightened state of mind, a place of clear knowing, of knowing
without knowing how you know. An individual experiencing Hokhmah consciousness
apprehends everything in creation through immediate awareness, without the
encumbrances of human needs, wants, desires, or personal opinions.
Binah (Understanding) is visualized on the left side of the head. It can be
thought of as the vibration of human beliefs and ideas expressed through speech
and action. In its simplest form it constitutes our understanding of the "ways
of the world" developed from ordinary everyday experiences. Binah functions as
the "container" for the wisdom of Hokhmah since Binah is necessary for the
wisdom of Hokhmah to have form.
The nature of Gedullah (Unconditional Love) is to seek no explanation and to
give without reason, uncritically and without questions or conditions. Gedullah
is the open palm of generosity that asks nothing in return. Its energy flows
directly in an endless stream from the eternal source, untouched by worldly
concerns. At one with its object, it is a continuous flow of love that kindles a
longing to stay forever in its embrace. It is visualized on the right side of
Gevurah (Judgement) represents stern decision and unyielding verdict rendered
without feeling or emotion. It is judgement based on strict principles from
which no deviation is tolerated. In its proper relationship with Unconditional
Love, Gedullah becomes a place of self-restraint and discipline. It is
visualized on the right side of the heart.
Tiferet (Beauty) is visualized in the middle of the body, at the solar plexus.
Sometimes referred to as the sun for its centrality on primordial man, it is
where harmony and peace reside. Tiferet, in its highest manifestation, is the
joining together of all opposing forces, the still-point after the ripple. In
this way, it holds the truth of our essential nature within its depths.
Netzah (Eternity) is the vibration of vision and prophecy. It is visualized on
the right hip. The word can be translated as both "eternity" and "victory," it
is the ability to envision and the desire to build.
Hod (splendor) is visualized on the left hip, and it is actualization. In its
highest form, Hod gives resplendent reality to timeless vision and prophecy,
therefore by manifesting the splendor of Divine's spiritual presence here on
Yesod (The All) is the earthly seat of sexual desire and a wellspring of vital
power. Visualized in the genital area, it is also the location through which new
souls enter the world. Yesod is called the ALL because its primary function is
to act as a funnel for the all-encompassing life force of creation, the
connector between heaven and earth.
Malkhut (Kingdom) is the vibration of the world of phenomena and earthly being
the physical palace of God. In its highest manifestation, it is the Creator's
Presence. It is the aspect of Divine that discloses the possibility of grace and

The Art of Inner Peace
This excerpt is from Silence, How to Find Inner Peace in a Busy World, by
The price of peace is the willingness to be still and present within ourselves.
To calm our own heart and unlearn the habit of self-abandonment is the beginning
of the process.
We cannot be at peace with anything or contribute to a peaceful world unless we
understand what it means to calm our own troubled hearts.
Opening to our struggles with a generous heart and facing our life just as it is
are the first and last steps in spiritual practice.
Peace is not the absence of the challenging, disturbing, or unsettling.
Peace is born of our heartfelt willingness to greet the encounters and
experiences of our inner and outer world, without prejudice, resistance, or
We learn to live in a way in which we have no enemies to struggle with and no
battles to win.
The challenges that come to us we no longer perceive as threats to free from,
but as invitations to learn the lessons of peacemaking.
Throughout time, in all traditions and communities, countless people have
trained themselves in the art of peace.
The people of the past and present who have most profoundly changed the world
and who stand as beacons of hope and compassion for us have all been deeply
challenged, threatened, and tested in their lives.
Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, Julian of Norwich,
Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa, to mention just a few of the mystics and
dissidents of our world, have all been asked to understand the nature of peace
They have educated themselves in the universities of bigotry, tragedy, and
Their classrooms have been in slums and prison cells, in the midst of oppression
Each one of them has without doubt been asked to make a deep inner journey to
understand the causes of war and peace.
If we treasure and long for peace, we too are asked to make this journey and to
learn from the university of our lives.
We discover that peace is not a destination to be reached but a way of living,
relating, speaking, and being.

A hermit was meditating by a river when a young man interrupted him. "Master, I
wish to become your disciple," said the man.
"Why?" asked the hermit.
The young man thought for a moment. "Because I want to find God."
The master jumped up, grabbed him by the scruff of his neck, dragged him into
the river, and plunged his head under water.
After holding him there for a minute, with him kicking and struggling to free
himself, the master finally pulled him up out of the river.
The young man coughed up water and gasped to get his breath.
When he eventually quieted down, the master spoke. "Tell me, what did you want
most of all when you were under water."
"Air!" answered the man.
"Very well," said the master.
"Go home and come back to me when you want God as much as you just wanted air."

This was really good. Keep up such "inner stuff" flowing!!! In today's world
filled with mad deadlines, it gives a person time to breathe, and reflect.
"There are very few guarantees in life, yet one thing is certain -- if you never
attempt anything, you'll never accomplish anything. We frequently are held back
by fear of failure. And failure is always a possibility. It is a certainty,
however, when you never try in the first place.You become what you think about
most. When you continually focus on the fear of failure, failure will become
real for you. Look instead at the possibilities. Look at what could happen if
only you would attempt it. Sure, it might not succeed completely. Yet even then
you will learn something."

The more the media matters, the more we must track what it does.
Updated twice a week, www.TheHoot.org brings you in-depth reports
from all parts of the sub-continent and further afield. As the
watchdog's watchdog we take a hard-edged look at issues that plague
the media, and offer riffs and reflections on what is in the news and
what ought to be.
We are delighted to announce that the Hoot has completed three years
of media watching on the Web. We are gratified that this milestone
has been possible, despite a rather precarious existence. We go from
grant to grant, and donation to donation, tiding over the in-between
periods with loans. Currently we are alive because of a 1.5 lakh
grant from the National Foundation for India, before that we were
able to keep going for a few months because the European Union
advertised on the site. Over three years, Rs 1.21 lakh has come as
contributions from journalists and others.
As of now, the money the Hoot runs on will run out in November this
year. The site needs to do much more than it does, and substantially
strengthen its coverage of South Asian countries other than India. It
needs staff, and possibly a small office. At the moment it has
neither. Funding from Indian sources has not been easy to come by,
and funding from foreign sources including individuals cannot be
taken under the rules of the Foreign Contributions Regulation Act.
To put the Hoot on a footing whereby it can cover the media more
substantially, regularly and responsibly, we are making another
attempt to set up a subscription base which will bring in small
contributions on a regular yearly basis. Earlier we asked for Rs 100

How To Sleep Better - Eight Tips
Adapted from A Spa of Your Own, by Stephanie Tourles (Storey Books, 2002).
Studies show that far too many of us are not sleeping well, and lack of
good-quality sleep can lead to more than just feeling tired: everything from
traffic accidents and poor work performance to crankiness, illness, and a
less-than-attractive appearance can be the result of sleeping poorly.
To look and feel your absolute best, you need to get approximately seven to nine
hours of deeply restful, quality sleep each night.
Here are eight simple tips so you can start sleeping like a baby.
Find out how to get a great night's sleep, right here:
1. Flannel sheets are an insomniac's best friend! Year-round, I sleep between
thick, 6-ounce flannels that feel like light, soft, velvety blankets of fluffy
cotton. During hot summer weather, forego the usual thin blanket and substitute
the top flannel sheet as your cover.
2. Get plenty of vigorous exercise early in the day so you'll be naturally tired
come bedtime. Exercise performed too close to retiring can be too stimulating
for some people.
3. Sip a cup of hot catnip, chamomile, or raspberry leaf herbal tea. Hot,
mineral-rich vegetable broth, cow's milk, and calcium-fortified soy or rice milk
are also good. Drink it an hour prior to bedtime or you'll wake up needing to
visit the restroom.
4. Don't go to bed on a full stomach. Digestion takes lots of energy and will
keep you awake.
5. Go to bed at the same time every night. Once your body gets used to a
routine, it will naturally want to fall asleep at the designated time.
6. Put a drop or two of soothing essential oil of lavender or Roman chamomile on
7. Purchase a device that drowns out disturbing noises and produces
sleep-inducing sounds such as ocean waves lapping the shore, a gently babbling
brook, or wind in the trees.
8. Avoid caffeinated products such as certain brands of pain relievers, diet
pills, and the usual culprits--coffee, cola drinks, chocolate, and black tea.
Caffeine keeps you awake, makes for more restless sleep, and acts as a diuretic,
causing you to make more trips to the bathroom.

Your Soul's Landscapes - Guided Meditation
Adapted from The Daughter of Gaia, by Marko Pogacnik (Findhorn Press, 2001).
Here is a powerful tool to help us liberate our energy, emotions, or
consciousness from the prison of old memories, traumas, or other rigid patterns.
As long as these powers are imprisoned or frozen, they represent a burden
blocking our development.
Once liberated, they can be recycled for personal or universal use in the here
Experience what it is like to travel through the worlds of your soul with this
exciting guided meditation!
* Lie down and ask for the experience. Bend your knees so that your heels are
placed down. Imagine that point as the source of a river that runs up along your
spine towards your head.
* You are a beautifully coloured duck being slowly carried on the waves of the
river from its source towards your head.
* When you arrive at your neck, imagine that there is a waterfall where the
river falls majestically down into a rounded, peaceful lake situated among high
* Arriving at the lake, you transform yourself into a swan. You bob peacefully
on the ripples of the lake.
* Then you open your wings and fly high up to the top of the tallest rock, which
is identical with the top of your forehead.
* There for a moment you transform yourself into an eagle and gaze upon the
totality of the universe, which extends all around you like a mandala.
* Below, in the area of your belly, you see a vast shallow lake full of inner
life. You transform yourself back into the swan and fly down to land upon the
surface of the lake.
* You notice a storm-cloud on your left and see bright flashes of lightning
striking the surface of the water. They represent the masculine counterpart of
the feminine quality of the lake.
* By now you have arrived at the sexual area where the waters of the lake make a
thin waterfall. While pouring down through the narrow space between your legs,
the waters become transformed into fiery magma.
* The magma is pouring down to fill the underground lake below your spine. It is
a lake of fire, but without any suffocating heat. While falling with the magma,
the swan transforms itself into a transparent spirit that is called the phoenix.
* Phoenix flies above the lake of glowing magma to reach an opening at the back
of your heart. It ascends through the opening to come into the inner chamber of
* Rest for a moment in your heart and hold the resultant feeling. Then
distribute that feeling throughout your whole body and within every cell. Be who
you are and give thanks.

I tried to awaken a silent sleeping beautiful stream,
It asked me to sing melodies of sweetest of dream.
I tried to search a melody in vain,
The search drove me quite insane.
I tried to search all the possible directions and all around,
I tried to search the Mother Earth and the sky that surround.
I tried to search in the galaxies far away, beyond the Milky Way,
I tried to search in brightness of the shining stars seen by the bay.
I tried to search in relentless waves of the wide ocean,
I tried to search in lightening and its thunderous motion.
I tried searching in the garlands of the trees,
I tried searching in the flowers and the bees.
I tried to search with the wings of spring,
I tried searching in rain that clouds bring.
I tried to search in the innocence and curiosity of the childhood,
I tried to search in an adolescent's timidity and the varied mood.
I tried to search in the parting of my beloved's hair,
I tried to search in those eyes with the exquisite flair.
I tried to search in the wounded soul that now swings behind these silent tears,
I tried to search in the dreams and the aspirations that were marred by the
I finally found the melodies of sweet dreams that I could beautifully sing,
The silent sleeping beautiful stream started to flow with the glorious ring.
