True or False

One of the major work in our spiritual journey is to discern true from false. That was the sin of Adam. When the snake approached Adam and Eve, he spoke the truth. He told them that they could eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge, the good and the evil. And it's true. But what the snake didn’t say, is it’s not the time yet. He spoke the truth, and then, he injected a big lie. That’s how we fall into all kinds of false illusions in our life. We see a little truth, but this truth conceals a big lie. What is a lie? First of all, it is disconnection from the light. It’s darkness, and darkness is Satan. Which one of us would follow Satan? If Satan will appear and say, I am Satan, I am negativity, I am death. Would anybody follow him? Yet we all follow him all the time; a major chunk of our life we fall into negativity. How come? Because Satan never appears as Satan. Negativity never appears as negativity. It always appears with some truth there. The only way you can convince somebody to believe in your lie is by giving him lots of truth beforehand. That’s why it’s so difficult to know. The only way to know, is through time. Because whatever comes from Satan is finite, and will eventually disappear. Many seemingly important things in life, good businesses, projects, people…will eventually disappear.  Great things have no fear of time. Only that which comes from the light can keep on going. Because it is infinite. Even though it may seem to have disappeared, rejected or buried, it will eventually emerge again.  Only that which is true will stand the test of time.   © WECLUSTR.COM | Change Starts From Within | Spiritual Classes and Workshops in London

10 Things Managers Do That Make Good Employees Quit

You advertise a job opening. You track down potential candidates on social media and at job fairs. You do background checks. You conduct structured interviews and pre-employment skills tests. You negotiate with the selected applicants. You go through tons of paperwork before the final on-boarding. But after pouring all that time and efforts, why do you think you have to sit in frustration as they pack their desk and walk out of the door.

Thinking About Language Learning in America: It's a Problem

I have long worried about the quality of how we teach foreign languages in the US. (For the record, I was a Spanish TA years ago and taught college level Spanish for a short period.) I worry that people take years of foreign language classes in school and still cannot navigate a second language effectively. Ask your friends what language they learned in high school and even college and whether they can carry on a conversation that involves more than "What is on the menu?" and "Where is the X?".

Why It's So Hard to Understand our Students and Help Them

Kids are deeply affected by acts of teachers --- and the teachers never know about what happened. I used to say as a college president that, with respect to students, you could do 99 out of 100 things right but the 1 thing that is wrong or bothersome or bad has a seemingly out-sized effect; in others words, we need to be vastly more aware not just of big systemic change but we need to pay attention to smaller words and deeds and acts. Both are important to be sure. But, we tend to focus on the BIG changes and acts; that's the American Way. Think Big.

How to Attract Top Talent: Stop Setting Mouse Traps

Why are we still writing lengthy job descriptions in order to attract top talent? We all know that aside from a few essential responsibilities and must-haves, JDs are basically worthless as the job is really dependent on the needs in-the-moment and that person's individual approach to the role vs. the nice, tidy list of responsibilities that are mostly irrelevant and dated. So I propose we take convention out back, put it out of its misery, and do something a little revolutionary (read: relevant) when seeking top talent.
