التسامح

by أوشو د. علي الحداد

متى أدركنا معنى الشغف فلن يكون صعبا إدراك العطاء أو التسامح. فالشغف حالة جسدية مادية إنها خضوعك لسيطرة الجسد دون وعي للنتائج... تعني أنك لست سيد نفسك بل عبدا لانفعالك. التسامح يعني أنك تجاوزت حاجات الجسد وتخطيت كل الحواجز النفسية يعني إنك تحررت من عبودية الجسد وأصبحت سيد نفس. وهكذا صرت تتصرف بوعي غير خاضع لقوى خارجية هي تحدد قرارك. أنت الآن حر التصرف بكامل طاقتك وهكذا صار بمقدورك تحويل الشغف إلى عطاء. الشغف شهوة العطاء حب. الشغف رغبة العطاء انفتاح. الشغف طمع العطاء مشاركة. الشغف يدعوك لاستغلال الآخرين فيما العطاء يجبرك على احترامهم. الشغف يبقيك ملتصقا بالأرض يبقي قدميك غارقتين في الوحل وهكذا لن تصبح زهرة لوتس لا اليوم ولا غدا فيما العطاء يجعلك هذه الزهرة فيمنحك قوة النمو وتخطي طبقات التراب وتجاوز عالم الرغبات والطمع عالم الأنانية والغضب. العطاء تحول في مسار طاقتك. في الواقع أنت إنسان مقدس ينبعث مثل العطر غير أن الغضب يستهلك بعضا من طاقتك كذلك يفعل الطمع والشهوة أيضا ... هكذا تستهلك طاقتك سدى . الرغبات والشهوات تسيطر عليك تدمر قدراتك وطاقاتك وتبقيك إنسانا فارغا تافها . تذكر ما قال وليم بليك: «الطاقة هي البهجة» غير أنك استهلكت كل طاقاتك فكيف ستشعر بالبهجة والفرح أما حين تحسن استغلال طاقاتك فهذا يعني أن حياتك ستمتلىء بالفرح يعني أن فيضا من البهجة سينطلق منك. يعني أنك ستصبح بوذا آخر. إنما لن تصبح بوذا آخر إلا بعد اختبار معنى العطاء... إنه الحب الدافىء إنه مشاركة الآخرين الفرح والسرور. إنه إشراك الآخرين في وجودك أنت الآن مبارك ويمكنك منح الآخرين. هذا هو العطاء. الشغف لعنة والعطاء نعمة.

كافئي نفسك

by دانيال ستيل جودي صفير

كان صباحا هادئا ومشمسا من شهر نوفمبر عندما أبعدت كارول باربر نظرها عن شاشة الكمبيوتر وحد قت إلى حديقة منزلها في بيل - آير. كان منزلا حجريا كبيرا عاشت فيه طوال خمس عشرة سنة. الغرفة الزجاجية المشمسة التي تستعملها بمثابة مكتب تطل على شجيرات الورود التي زرعتها والنافورة والبركة الصغيرة التي تعكس صورة السماء. المشهد هادئ والمنزل صامت. بالكاد تحركت يداها فوق لوحة مفاتيح الكمبيوتر خلال الساعة الأخيرة. الأمر محبط فعلا . فعلى الرغم من مسيرتها الطويلة والناجحة في الأفلام كانت تحاول تأليف كتابها الأول. لقد كتبت العديد من القصص القصيرة على مر السنوات لكنها لم تنشر أبدا أيا منها. لقد حاولت ذات مرة المشاركة في تأليف سيناريو فيلم. طوال فترة زواجها تحدثت هي وزوجها المرحوم شون عن إعداد فيلم سينمائي معا لكنهما لم يحققا أبدا ذلك. كانا مشغولين كثيرا في إنجاز أمور أخرى كل في مجال عمله الأساسي. كان شون منتجا ومخرجا بينما كانت هي ممثلة. لكنها لم تكن مجرد ممثلة عادية. كارول باربر نجمة كبيرة وقد حققت النجومية منذ كانت في الثامنة عشرة. أصبح عمرها الآن خمسين سنة واحتفلت بذكرى ميلادها منذ شهرين. وبمحض إرادتها لم تشارك في أي فيلم سينمائي منذ ثلاث سنوات. ففي عمرها وحتى مع جمالها الذي لا يزال مميزا أصبحت الأدوار الجيدة نادرة.

مخاطر العولمة

101 Things I Learned In Architecture School

by Matthew Frederick

2008 Silver Award Winner, Architecture Category, Independent Publisher Book Awards. and Winning entry, General Trade Illustrated Category, in the 2008 New England Book Show sponsored by Bookbuilders of Boston. This is a book that students of architecture will want to keep in the studio and in their backpacks. It is also a book they may want to keep out of view of their professors, for it expresses in clear and simple language things that tend to be murky and abstruse in the classroom. These 101 concise lessons in design, drawing, the creative process, and presentation--from the basics of "How to Draw a Line" to the complexities of color theory--provide a much-needed primer in architectural literacy, making concrete what too often is left nebulous or open-ended in the architecture curriculum. Each lesson utilizes a two-page format, with a brief explanation and an illustration that can range from diagrammatic to whimsical. The lesson on "How to Draw a Line" is illustrated by examples of good and bad lines; a lesson on the dangers of awkward floor level changes shows the television actor Dick Van Dyke in the midst of a pratfall; a discussion of the proportional differences between traditional and modern buildings features a drawing of a building split neatly in half between the two. Written by an architect and instructor who remembers well the fog of his own student days, 101 Things I Learned in Architecture Schoolprovides valuable guideposts for navigating the design studio and other classes in the architecture curriculum. Architecture graduates--from young designers to experienced practitioners--will turn to the book as well, for inspiration and a guide back to basics when solving a complex design problem.

by Mike Rapport

In 1848, a violent storm of revolutions ripped through Europe. The torrent all but swept away the conservative order that had kept peace on the continent since Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo in 1815--but which in many countries had also suppressed dreams of national freedom.

In1848, historian Mike Rapport examines the roots of the ferment and then, with breathtaking pace, chronicles the explosive spread of violence across Europe. A vivid narrative of a complex chain of interconnected revolutions,1848tells the exhilarating story of Europe's violent "Spring of Nations" and traces its reverberations to the present day.
