This blog's Aatma (soul) revolves around my passions - Life, Spirituality, Knowledge Management (KM) and Nonsense . Ergo, join me in my continuous quest to lead a better life, be a better human being, gain knowledge on the dynamics of knowledge and, well, just enjoy a key dimension of life, respectively....! ;-) PS: Why Nonsense? Because, at times, it makes more sense! On second thoughts, that's a lie....it's just that I love being nonsensical! ;-)

I welcome myself back to my blog after two weeks of silence! :-)
And....I am greeted by a quote (from my email backlog) that gives me goose flesh.
"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like". - Lao Tzu, Chinese Philosopher
So hard to follow. But after years of pondering and consideration, it is crystal clear to me that this in no sense means one should not have any goals or objectives. It simply means you do what you think you must but don't get turned off by the consequences and external influences. Pursue those goals as if none of the external influences and changes mattered (apart from making operational or attitude changes to account for these influences). Be aware that you cannot create a vacuum around you and stop ranting about things outside of your control.
