No Idea


Tarthang Tulku

Instead of running after patience, relax and let it come to you. Loosen the tension in your body; open your concentration and allow your emotional energy to flow. Let the warm, soothing energy of patience arise within you and flow through your body easily and freely. This practice is the act of patience.

Good thing to remember that you can’t get patience by chasing after patience.

Please, someone tell the former Secretary of Labor how capitalism works.

While it would be ideal if corporations paid higher wages out of profits; the structure of capitalism - make as much money as possible - doesn’t reward that.


This. So much this.

If there’s pleasure in action, there’s peace in stillness.

I feel like I keep needing to write this, but once again, no matter who does it and no matter which company they’re targeting, it’s wrong for politicians to promise to punish companies for their speech. For some reason, many people’s position on this point changes based on whether or not they like or dislike the politician, and whether or not they like or dislike the company. But it’s wrong.

Completely agree.

I’ve seen many things that’ve been influenced by it and so I am, in turn, influenced by it.



Shawn Blanc provides 2 reasons to plan your week:

  1. Clarity cures busywork.
  1. Your to-do list should exist on your calendar.

I’m sorry. But, no, your to-do list should not exist on your calendar. Your calendar is for events that can not be moved, not for tasks.


Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.


When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.
