Convergence of energy through self expression


Excerpt from Vinita Dawra Nangia’s O-zone

Says Dr Deepak Raheja, psychiatrist and director, Hope Foundation,

“When we talk of expressing ourselves, we are referring to our ability to sublimate the libidinal energy, which as Sigmund Freud says, is the basis of all biological fuels that drive us. For a long time, we have forgotten to sublimate this energy into creative expression. Today, we find more and more people able to do so. If the gap between the real and the fantasized self increases, it increases frustration in life. Self-expression helps us feel more complete and helps bridge the gap between the real and the imagined self. This brings us to a more philosophical and spiritual fulfillment.”

Budokon practice: The way we do everything


The way we do anything is the way we do everything.

This is a fundamental tenant of the Budokon practice, serving as a reminder that as practitioners we should live intentionally.

With each moment of every day we, as human beings living and existing in this world, are faced with choices and decisions that we must make; some loom significant and some may seem small and meaningless but the progression and outcome of our lives are directed by each of these choices, no matter how small they appear in the moment.
Far too often we live our lives, moving through our moments, on autopilot.
How often do we ask ourselves, “How did I get here?”

Matter of preference


I’m yet to read Susan Cain’s book ‘Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking

But i already think i will love it.

‘Introverts are not necessarily shy or anti-social, they just prefer environments that are not over-stimulating and get their energy from quiet time and reflection’ – Susan Cain
