via 3 questions to ponder for your 2030 strategy – United States



Meher Baba

Love is a gift from God to man.

Obedience is a gift from Master to man.

Surrender is a gift from man to Master.

One who loves desires the will of the Beloved.

One who obeys does the will of the Beloved.

One who surrenders knows nothing but the will of the Beloved.

Love seeks union with the Beloved.

Obedience seeks the pleasure of the Beloved.

Surrender seeks nothing.

One who loves is the lover of the Beloved.

One who obeys is the beloved of the Beloved.

One who surrenders has no existence other than the Beloved.

Greater than love is obedience.

Greater than obedience is surrender.

All three arise out of, and remain contained in, the Ocean of divine Love.

WORD OF THE DAY Parsimonious

Word Genius

Reluctant to spend money


Extremely frugal


Highly reserved; restrained

Examples of Parsimonious in a sentence

“My parsimonious neighbor asked me to pay him for the value of the egg I borrowed.”

“I know you’re parsimonious, but I wish you would loosen the purse strings once in a while.”

Did you know…

… that today is Elephant Dung Paper Day? In 2001, the Ayutthaya Elephant Park in Thailand announced that it was raising funds by creating paper out of recycled elephant dung. Their golden dung paper is made by liquidizing the pulp in a blender, straining it onto a fine sieve, and letting it dry. That should get some people writing again! 😉


Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”

— Native American Proverb

Did you know…

… that today is Culinarians Day? Culinarians Day is a special day for anyone who cooks. You don’t have to be a chef or a graduate of a culinary institute to celebrate this delicious day. You simply have to cook and to enjoy the results. Now get into your kitchen and celebrate! Cook up a storm. BTW: What time should I arrive to eat!? 😉


Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“The trouble with eating Italian is that 5 or 6 days later, you’re hungry again.”

— George Miller

Quote of the day –

Almost all our suffering is the product of our thoughts. We spend nearly every moment of our lives lost in thought, and hostage to the character of those thoughts. You can break this spell, but it takes training just like it takes training to defend yourself against a physical assault. ~ Sam Harris

IMHO, Narendra Modi knows that his FM selection is terrible, the Budget took out the all the hype and wind his Election campaign brought and the markets sunk to the Budget narrative.  He should have sacked the WHOLE FINMIN Team alongwith his nincompoop ministers too.
