HumanHints, today ‘Personal Boundaries’

Saying no is really difficult for many people. As foreign as the idea is to some, a great challenge for many people is to learn to say No without feeling guilty. The less we define our own boundaries in the moment, the more life will step on us, so saying No is an important ability. One reason it’s hard to say No is fear of rocking the boat. It is so much easier to let the situation go away by not saying anything, but we all know the situation doesn’t just go away.

Aruba’s Social Column “Bati Bleki” by Rona Coster October 13th, 2014

Page-05FRESH & CRAZY. The recent Banjolux Bathroom Accessories & Supplies commercials played in theaters make me laugh. The first one, with the man destroying his bathroom to make room for an upgraded version by Banjolux gets my full support. I like this entertaining angle better than the previous, so called risqué, magical-reality commercial with showers in the jungle. This one with the dust, protective coverall and heavy duty hammer was funny. Both manic husband and kill-joy wife were credible and loveable. But this week, I had to take a second look, then it was over. And I am going to the movies again on Sunday, just to get to the bottom, no pun intended, of the new commercial featuring three totally nude, very muscular and tattooed hunks, lined up in the shower, sharing a red, slippery bar of soap.

HumanHints, today ‘Passionate Journey To A Meaningless Destination’

It’s been said that in order to master the physical world, we must try as hard as we can to achieve our goals, then remain totally indifferent to even the greatest failure and success. This is the simple message of the famous Bhagavad-Gita, and is found most other places where enlightenment is discussed. It seems like a conflicting idea to our logical mind. Why would we even strive for something in the first place, if we didn’t care about the results?
