B. It was once said…


Polymath Rabindranath Tagore on the interrelatedness of service and joy:

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold,

C. Something to consider this week:

“We grow up unquestioningly absorbing many inherited assumptions about the world.

These inherited assumptions form our view and experience of the world and are not necessarily conducive towards our ultimate self-actualisation.

It is very common for these assumptions to be maintained without being tested.

Always be ready to systematically test your theories, maintaining those that hold true and adjusting those that do not.

Eventually, you will find yourself evolving rapidly towards a more balanced world view.

What assumptions do you hold?”

Until next Monday,
