2/n What was happening at #JNU when you guys represented:

Durga Mata as objectionable imagery
What about continual insult of Bhagwan Rama at #JNU ?

Now when your own act has made you begin to pay, u play victim card?

3/n Utter lie. No Hadith has captured this incidence old woman. Rather Muhammad chose to forcefully convert old man Abu Sufyan when he came to plead him not to wedge war on Meccans (source: Ibn Ishaq 808-9)

#WakeUpATX this can happen in #ATX.
For d last three decades, San Francisco has conducted a real-life experiment-when a society stops enforcing bourgeois norms of behavior. The city has done so in d name of #compassion toward the #homeless. /1

The results have been opposite: street squalor & misery have increased, even as government expenditures have ballooned. Yet d principles that've guided the city’s homelessness policy remain inviolate: homelessness is a housing problem; it is involuntary; and.../2 #Austinhomeless
its persistence is THE result of inadequate public spending. These propositions are readily disproved by talking to people living on the streets.
42% of respondents in city’s 2019 street poll of homeless reported chronic drug or alcohol use; actual percentage is likely higher /3

Guru is a compound of two words, Gu & Ru. Gu means ' darkness ' ;
Ru means ' light ' - that which dispels the darkness of ignorance is called Guru. In India this word is used with reverence and is always associated with holiness and the highest wisdom. It is a very scared word.
It is seldom used by itself, but always with its suffix, deva. Deva means “bright being.” An enlightened master or Guru is called Gurudeva. There is a vast difference between an ordinary
teacher and a spiritual master.
All followers of a Guru, whatever their age, even if they are eighty years old, are like children to him. He will feed them, give them shelter, and then teach them, without expecting anything in return. I asked my master, " why does he do this ? "

1. He lacks compassion.
The Bible says: “As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with #compassion, #kindness, #humility, #meekness, & #patience.” (Colossians 3:12)
2. He appeals to fear and anger- “But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment; if you insult a brother or sister, you will be liable to the council; if you say ‘You fool,’ you will be liable to the hell of fire.” (Matthew 5: 22)
3. enamored with “greatness” & ego not goodness
“Blessed are meek, they will inherit earth. Blessed are those who hunger & thirst for righteousness, they will be filled. Blessed are merciful, they will receive mercy. Blessed are pure in heart, they will see God” (Matthew 5: 5-8)

We've just released the final report by @Alston_UNSR, the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme #poverty, on his visit to the #UK. The report is available here: undocs.org/A/HRC/41/39/Ad…. A few key takeaways:
Some have asked me why a UN expert on #poverty would visit the #UK. Unfortunately, although the UK is the world’s 5th largest economy, 14 million are in poverty, child poverty is rising & predicted to reach 40% by 2021, homelessness is up 60%, and food bank use has skyrocketed.
To understand #poverty in the #UK, you have to look at the massive disinvestment in social support since 2010: the end of a centralized social fund, changes to the ways benefits are capped & calculated that substantially reduce their value, the decimation of civil legal aid, etc.

It's my calling as a Christian priest to remind all Christians that Christ's only commandment is universal compassion. Selfishness & cruelty work in direct opposition to #compassion, turning a Christian into an antichrist. In Jesus's name, I call upon such to repent. Amen.
The Christian message isn’t about the Second Coming, resurrection, or the afterlife, although those things are important, but about building a kingdom of compassion here on Earth now. The only commandment is universal compassion. “Love one another as I have loved you.”
The greatest act of the #Easter sacrifice was Gethsemane when Christ felt all our pain, rising above jealousy & anger to universal compassion. That gave him the strength for the cross, where he lifted us all up. That qualifies him to judge & rule. He lived his only commandment.

#Retrograde planets in your BirthChart?

There is a lot of fear and confusion regarding retrograde planets in Astrology.
People think it makes them weak which is a myth.
.
.
Follow the thread for interpretation of all retrograde planets in your birthchart as per #VedicAstrology
Note: Luminaries - Sun & Moon are never Retrograde in motion
When a planet is Rx it will behave like its in the opposite sign. Example Venus retrograde in Leo would behave like it is in Aquarius (180 degree opposite) Mirror image. Retrograde planet gives good results after 32yrs
#MercuryRetrograde:
Person with retro Mercury is constantly thinking. Replays old conversations in mind to analyze all aspects, very perceptive of people around them. Words become very important.

1. THREAD: "We are Creators"

Contemplate our ability to bring a new consciousness into being. We can create a new being that will influence others and create!

The #GreatAwakening is revealing our own magnificence.

This awareness is not easy to digest for everyone. #Compassion.
2. My Planned Parenthood thread touched many hearts and I was personally blessed by your responses.

We are walking a tough journey together.

Those amazing mothers who have aborted are suffering more than me. I cannot empathise, but I am compassion.

3. Many mums struggle as we join them in declaring the crimes that took place.

Cry no longer. The consciousness of humanity has joined with your voice.

Your true identity is not a victim, but an amazing soul.

This is your healing: You have now been heard and you are loved.

1] Dear World,
Tonight my heart has broken. As I look through the Twitterverse, I can smell the hated, see the seething self righteousnessof people who no longer have any compassion, dignity, moral compass or love for any human being.
2] The political turmoil in every country around the world is at a fever pitch. Left Vs Right, every shred of common sense, decency and respect afforded to us has been thrown out the widow.
To take a break from the insane world I was viewing, I took a step away & went inside...
3] I went to check on my sleeping boys to ensure they were okay....then it hit me...& it hit me like a sucker punch to the gut. What sort of world were my boys going to inherit, how could they possibly survive the onslaught of everyone telling them what they should be....

It's #BellLetsTalk and for so many who struggle with #mentalhealth concerns, this day raises awareness and builds a culture of #compassion. Let's never again hear someone say, “just snap out of it” or “it’s all in your head.” @Bell_LetsTalk
Each of us may have different levels of understanding when it comes to #mentalhealth. Mental health is neutral. It’s not bad or good. It’s not necessarily positive or negative. It just is. #BellLetsTalk
A tooth ache will put you in the dentist’s chair. The flu is a reason to see the doctor. There’s no shame. Seeking help for #mentalhealth support must also be a safe experience. There's simply no other choice when your mental health is cast in shadow. #BellLetsTalk #EndTheStigma

I have spent the last few years trying to rethink #mhealth. As we work to lessen #stigma and fear I ask everyone to keep an open mind, give feedback, and join me as I delve into some unique hypotheses. 1/
This started with my sphere of mental health. (Pinned) . I don’t believe true “normal” exists and feel everyone has issues that fit within the sphere. A dx comes because of observations that are inherently flawed & variable due to relative perceptions. 2/
I use the word “flawed” because none of us can read minds, therefore, there is no objective way to truly know exactly what someone is going through or how extreme their suffering is. This is one reasons #mhealth pros have such a difficult job. 3/

#OSHO

This is a beautiful method, will be very useful for you. For example, if you are feeling very discontented, what to do?

#Patanjali says ponder on the opposite: if you are feeling #discontented, contemplate about #contentment, what is contentment. Bring a #balance.
If your mind is #angry, bring #compassion in, think about compassion; and, immediately, the energy changes. Because they are the same; the opposite is the same energy.

Once you bring it in, it absorbs. #Anger is there: contemplate on compassion
The #opposite is the pole. When you feel #hateful, think of #love. When you feel #desire, think of #desirelessness and the silence that comes in it. Whatsoever the case, bring the opposite in and watch what happens within you.

If your #body becomes very pleasant we call it a #pleasure

If your #mind becomes pleasant, we call it peace; if it becomes very pleasant we call it a #joy

If your #emotions become pleasant we call it a #love; if they become very pleasant we call it #compassion
If your life #energies become pleasant we call it #bliss, and if they become very pleasant we call it #ecstasy

If your surroundings become pleasant, you call it #success
A #seeker on the path of #awareness knows that #Pleasure, #Peace, #Joy, #Love, #Compassion, #Bliss and #Ecstasy are all different states of #Body, #Mind and #Energy, not the achievement milestones you can #conquer in an external world.

#OSHO

#Meditation happens beyond #mind. It involves watching #mind. When the real YOU, the watcher, becomes stronger the mind becomes the #servant.

No #discipline, #mantra or #scientific instrument can lead to meditation. No technique can go beyond mind.
The basis of all misunderstanding in a scientific circle is: when the being of a person is in a state of meditation, it creates certain waves in the mind. These waves can be wavelength from the outside by #technical means. But those waves will not create #meditation
You may go on practising with #scientific instruments for years; it will not change your #character, it will not change your #morality, it will not change your #individuality. You will remain the same.

@TheBMA @BMANews "FRONTLINE" 4th August displays worrying prejudice. Please refer your pseudonymous ED consultant Charles Lamb to the following:

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out-group…

We no longer call people "schizophrenics", "diabetics", or "cyclists". To do so risks lazy prejudice.

1/
@TheBMA @BMANews From Lamb's article:

"Where there are cycle lanes some choose not to use them" - correct; may I refer you to the UK's unfit for purpose cycling "infrastructure" or "farcilities":

colyer.plus.com/danny/cycling/…

2/
@TheBMA @BMANews And (referring to someone riding a bike):

"After all they all look the same"

This is never an acceptable way to describe any group of human beings.

Particularly when you use dehumanising language to "other" them - this is prejudice and out-group homogeneity bias again.

💪A thread on amazing Twitter threads 😍👇
In the process of revamping my #Twitter profile (dormant earlier), I have come to appreciate the wonderful underutilized platform it is!
Some threads contain crisp knowledge capsules that can help many. Starting 1 on such curated content
1. I largely rely on this: threadreaderapp.com to find content
2. What I wish to share is what coincides largely with my interests- #Learning, #Investing, #Behavioralpsychology (#mentalmodels, #bias, etc), #Businessbooks, Industry insights/case studies, Life experiences, etc
3/n
While it will be difficult to structure the order of content here, I will try to block threads by category (as noted above & more). Feel free to comment with any good thread that you would have come across. Cumulative learning always helps.

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.

Every day next few days I'll share one #depression/#anxiety insight from my own experience. If it helps anyone a wee bit, it'll be worth it.
1. "#Happiness" can scare #anxiety patients. In our heads, things are always going wrong. Fear of a "happy" moment undone is doubly painful.
Sorry, this won't be a daily affair as I had earlier imagined. But here's insight #2 based on my brush with #depression/#anxiety.
