Of Walks and MeditationOne of the most important aspects of decision making has been to keep a calm mind. The advent of many distractions have kept us from being able to sit in peace and review our decisions, the issues, and formulate solutions. But it also goes beyond with us a needing constant general reflective state. We need to be able to reflect to be able to better govern ourselves and the situation.

The most important and readily available method would be meditation. It is important to keep ourselves in a quiet and comfortable room or environment, with dim and cozy lights, either silent or with some simple meditation music, and either keep silence or chant a mantra that would have its effects designed for what we are looking for. Meditation has been very effective in spirituality, mental peace, and helping compassion. It has been noted through several tests that those who meditate are generally happier and healthier. A happy mind keeps a healthier body.

Meditation too, is very difficult, clouded minds prohibit one from being able to let go and focus. It is very difficult for a novice to immediately meditate if there is a lot of mental burden being carried. Assistance is greatly encouraged from proper masters who can guide the student towards intended peace.

ImageTo my suppliers of Tobacco - I wish to complain the lack of support tobacco companies have to their clients. We smokers have to endure the hardship of understanding the health risk involved in smoking, the social alienation by society, the discrimination on places we can consume tobacco, the increase in health insurance cost, and many other burden that smokers constantly face for either choosing or being addicted to tobacco.

Many of use might not have chosen to remain smokers, but quitting has been close to impossible. For those of us who voluntarily choose to continue, it is due to our understanding that perhaps, smoking is not as injurious to health as what may be claimed.

ImageThe advent of climate change has given a strange new wave with the public over awareness of their own actions. There is a deeper and stronger need for everyone, not just corporations, to actually be aware of the impact of each and every one's actions to the environment.

There is this strong idea that is now better established that however small our actions, can make a major impact over time. This whole new line of thought gives empowerment, and even more importantly, an awareness of greater responsibility, not only for oneself, but for the greater good. Social responsibility has always been evident given that community advisers and meetings have been held for centuries now. What is now becoming evident is that we are not only technologically connected, but also environmentally interlaced. This whole new era of understanding states that if we want to protect the environment on our own vicinity, we have to make sure others are protecting theirs, and vice versa.

Flood victims wait in the street for relief goods after flood water subsides big trucks to enter the area Monday, Sept. 28, 2009 in suburban Cainta, east of Manila, Philippines. Weary victims of a tropical storm that unleashed worst flooding in more than a decades begun cleaning up their damaged homes as rescue workers plucked more dead bodies from muddy floodwaters.There have been some important discussions on the past on the ecological cost of any action. What is just as urgent is the climatic effect of non-action.

Countless surveys have presented that we are all more than aware about our environment, and countless surveys have also presented that we are willing to do something. Unless we do anything, no change can happen. The flooding that happened last September 26, 2009 in the Luzon area of the Philippines should give people a more urgent picture of climate change.

ImageThere is a strong rising importance for different organizations to go green. The focal point of going green has mainly attributed to a better understanding of ecological cost aside from economic cost.

But there are some more important points to be brought out when "going green" is discussed. Green is not just choosing products with a "green" label, it is a lifestyle, and a thought process, that makes us reflect on the very basic point. ECOLOGICAL COST.

Ecological cost's currency is carbon footprint. But just like in economics, Dollars is not the only denomination. In ecological sense, there is an addition of the different types of toxic chemicals, the efficient use of nature in keeping environmental balance, and the overall positive lifestyle impact. If we take all these things into consideration, it may sound overwhelming, but it actually is very simple.

See full Image below.I was browsing through a few interesting articles writing about how Hindus got offended about the Burger King ad. Honestly, it was offensive, and what I have realized, is that this was purely intentional on the side of Burger King.

Every marketing campaign always has to go through a process review to ensure no one gets offended. If there is a religious picture posted (as what is shown in the BK ad) they will try to research on the religious culture and ensure that it does not offend or go against that culture's norm.
