International Day of Yoga, 2020

Made no post for 21st june, IDY day, so here it goes:

Yoga Beyond Asanas by Sri M

The question is, 'Is yoga just doing asanas or pranayam or are there deeper aspects of Yoga? Yoga is defined in Pathanjali's Yoga sutras, as 'Yogas chitta vritti nirodha' which means yoga is the elimination of the distractions, the disturbances and the conflicts of the mind. The angas in the sadhana pada are meant to bring this about because it is not easy to simply sit and say, "I want to be free of the distractions of the mind". It doesn't work like that....
"This online session took place on 21st June, 2020 in Madanapalle."

Thanks for the heads-up,
the issue is declared as a minor one for now. Planned activities will stress this PC system much more soon so time will tell. My case closed.

nanning, to increase fun from it ;) a malicious activity has been considered but have no observation to support it, yet.
Disabling cookies as per Steven's suggestion makes the issue persistent.

Thank you all! Since no one else confirms it, it must be an issue with the PC in use here.

Anyway, let me report current situation:
behaviour of it is not consistent, a way to recreate the issue is:
   open browser,
   open Forum page,    (issue present)
   refresh the page.   (no issue)

Forum pages used:

ASIF appears more vulnerable to the issue then the other 2 forums under test, overall - the issue shows up more often on Tor browser then on Edge browser.

The issue examples (ASIF uses "PHPSESSID", SMCF uses "P", SPF uses "sid"):

Steven, cookies are not blocked in Edge browser but the issue remains.

Thanks for the feedback info, folks.

I do not see it browser dependent, but maybe IP address dependent because using Tor and playing with "Tor circuit" that can be avoided sometimes.

"The way you think is the way you feel
and the way you feel is the way you think."

Qst: "Sonakshi Sinha: Dearest Sadhguruji, I have a question for you.
I’m a very emotional person, and I often find it very difficult to emotionally detach myself from a situation that I know that is not good for me. Like I can see that this is not going somewhere where I want it to go, but it’s very difficult to divert my mind and my emotions away from that. How do you think I can handle that situation? I would really like to know your perspective on it."

Ans: Don’t try to resist compulsive Thoughts and Emotions, Just Observe !

04:36 "Questioner: Sadhguru , you have said, "We should know this piece of life to its fullest."
How to know this piece of life to its fullest way? And I feel that I'm full of fear, anger, jealous - all those things. How to go beyond all these things and to know this life to its fullest?
Sadhguru: You don’t have to go beyond all these things; you just have to stop creating those things."

Oneness vs. The 1%

#VandanaShiva at the United Nations Office at Geneva, Mar 14, 2019

"World-renowned eco-feminist and "rock star of the environmental movement", Vandana Shiva, presents her latest book "Oneness vs. The 1%", equal parts a sobering warning on the dangers to human rights and biodiversity of the elite-led extractive economy of our time, and a profound reflection on why this is a unique moment to collectively correct the false construction of capital as the sole force of wealth (and well-being). Her presentation opened the second day of UNRISD conference, "Overcoming Inequalities in a Fractured World: Between Elite Power and Social Mobilization"."

ISF2020: Vandana Shiva & David Suzuki: The Virus is a Wake-up Call
Legendary environmental warriors Vandana Shiva and David Suzuki, come together in this rare conversation across continents. Both are past winners of the ‘Right Livelihood Prize’ often referred to as the ‘alternative Nobel’, and have had enormous local and global impact through their work.

Now, in the middle of a global pandemic, they invite us to consider the opportunity we have to change our ways of being as a species, and how we must truly be “all in this together”.

Partially fits ASIF topic "Lessons from COVID-19".

Dissident Circles Too Often Become Another Nerdy Hobby Group
It’s important to hold an acute awareness of why you got into this stuff in the first place. Whatever your individual ideological position, you got into this because you want to actually change things; to change the world, to cause a movement away from humanity’s unhealthy patterns and toward health. It’s not about petty vendettas against opposing factions or subfactions or individuals who don’t see things exactly the same way you do. And your energy expenditure should reflect this.
This thing is about changing the world, and changing you. That’s it. If you’re not actually, concretely doing one of those two things in any given moment while engaging in dissident circles, you’re just participating in another nerdy hobby group, with about as much consequence.

Biodiversity Week (May 18-22) • Online
Over Biodiversity Week (May 18-22), we in the Global Youth Biodiversity Network will flood the digital landscape with global conversations, calls to action, empowering videos, exciting activities and video teach-ins about the vital links between biodiversity and climate change, traditional knowledge, health, food security, and culture.

Through this week of action, the Biodiversity Week will create awareness about the building blocks of nature and ecosystems, drive initiatives big and small, give youth across the globe a collaborative platform, and demand bold action for people and nature.

The week will lead up to the International Day for Biological Diversity where all the themes from the week will come together, highlighting our relationship with Biodiversity and with Nature.

"The International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) takes place every year on May 22. It is the United Nations-sanctioned international day for promoting awareness around biodiversity issues."

Pope Francis | General Audience | 2020-04-22
Because of our selfishness we have failed in our responsibility to be guardians and stewards of the earth. “We need only take a frank look at the facts to see that our common home is falling into serious disrepair” (ibid., 61). We have polluted it, we have despoiled it, endangering our very lives. For this reason, various international and local movements have sprung up in order to appeal to our consciences. I deeply appreciate these initiatives; still it will be necessary for our children to take to the streets to teach us the obvious: we have no future if we destroy the very environment that sustains us.
How can we restore a harmonious relationship with the earth and with the rest of humanity?
We need a new way of looking at our common home. For this is not a storehouse of resources for us to exploit.
We are aware of the importance of cooperation as an international community for the protection of our common home. I urge those in positions of leadership to guide the preparations for two important international Conferences: COP15 on Biodiversity in Kunming, China, and COP26 on Climate Change in Glasgow, United Kingdom. These two meetings are of great importance.
