Who plays chess? Up for a game?
These young guys are playing checkers. I’m out there playing chess. #KobeBryant
Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem solve in an uncertain environment. #GarryKasparov

BIRDS OF THE MIND
Thoughts are not the truth, and ultimately they are not even yours. They are only voices, sounds, suggestions, opinions of the mind, coming and going all the time, like a flock of birds singing, every bird singing a different tune; a different opinion, suggestion, perspective. You are not the birds; you are the wide open space in which the birds can sing, the awareness that holds the birds, the silence underneath and inbetween.
Do not try to silence the birds (for that makes them sing even louder) or destroy them (for they are only parts of yourself longing for love) but allow them to sing, and fly, for that is your power, and your freedom. The “I am a failure” bird can sing, and the “I am a waste of space” bird can sing, and the “I am the most wonderful bird” bird can sing, and all their inbetween friends can sing, and you are a giant nest of awareness, a bird sanctuary, never defined by the chorus of opinions, nor at war with it, the great I AM, undefinable.

This article reveals Linette Lopez’ ignorance of New York City as well as her prejudice against it. The place she describes is Manhattan and not the city with its five burroughs. In Manhattan, Clinton got 579,013 votes to Trump’s 64,905. The place that new Trump the best, voted overwhelmingly against him.
So if she wants to blame somewhere for Donald trump, Ms. Lopez is looking entirely in the wrong place.
Leaving the KV drama aside, AAP has a fairly serious credibility issue with volunteers. And it has been brewing for a fairly long time, since before Punjab/Goa elections.
I have high hopes that leadership will take steps to address this (I know for a fact they have already started). I wish them the best of success. We can’t fail on this one.
Otherwise, Gujarat won’t be the last place where we lose all deposits. AAP can’t compete with BJP/Congress on money. We can only do it with committed volunteers.
It is a very serious crisis and it won’t be solved by “Trust Arvind, trust the party” rhetoric or a PC by Gopal Rai/Saurabh Bharadwaj.
It is a communication issue with volunteers. History is rife with examples of how much serious damage lack of communication can cause. From divorces to lost wars!
PS: Maybe everyone needs repeated review of An Insignificant Man (now available on Youtube)
We are the ones with hearts of thunder still, limbs of lighting. We will not settle for easy answers. We will stay close to the throb and pulse of life, the pounding and the shaking of it, the thunder and the light. We will break ourselves daily on the altar of experience, broken to pieces for love, broken and penetrated and broken over and over again relentlessly, ceaselessly, caught up in this erotic union until exhaustion, until the climax of more opening, always opening, non-stop entering and being entered, flooding and being flooded, with such power, with such pleasure, pain, bliss, melancholy, in an ecstatic dance of nearness and separation, love and longing, shadow and sun.
Prior to our clever philosophies, prior to the machines, prior to the Earth itself, let us meet here, in utter bewilderment that we exist, that we exist at all. Yes, my love, they can medicate us, call us uncivilized, lock us up, but they cannot take away our wildness, cannot break our devotion to a burning world!
