We the Librarians need to operate from the source of our thoughts... trust me .... LbnRaj ;

Golden words of Lane Wagger (Source : Speaking Tree, Times of India, January 19, 2011):
January 19, 2011; Wednesday
  1. The mind is capable of the same settling (like a wave in the ocean) down, or transcending process. Waves of thought retire to the source of thought.
  2. The agitated, limited value of thought gains the unlimited status of being the silent depth of the ocean of consciousness.
  3. The mind is like a body of water : choppy on the surface, silent and stable at its depth.  When we experience only the noisy surface level of thinking, difficulties abound.
  4. The growth of inner silence is the basis of spiritual unfolding and material success.
  5. Consciousness is the prime mover of life.
  6. Knowledge is different in different states of consciousness.
  7. If you are anchored to the silent blissful state of consciousness, everything you do becomes joyful.
  8. According to Maharshi Mahesh Yogi, handle that one thing – consciousness – by which every thing else is handled.
"Just like any other individuals in society, we the librarians do fee insecure , un happy, stressful and anxiety ridden often at times. We are skeptical and worried over the illogical behaviour of our bosses and co-workers and subordinates. We feel proud of some of our colleagues for their good deeds, feel sorry for the irrational behaviour of some others. All is well …. when we work from the core of our consciousness. All is well when we work from the source of our thoughts…that is consciousness. We are heading steadfast to emerge as the much awaited and coveted title of a 'knowledge professional'. Wagger says, "Knowledge is different in different states of consciousness". Being Knowledge professional in this context is to be operating from the source of our thoughts, to be operating from  the silent blissful consciousness level. The day is not far when we slide and glide towards being recognized as a full-fledged librarian, a librarian who would be sought after by every one who has to do some thing to do with knowledge. Cheers". –

All about the budge word "Knowledge"

The budge word “Knowledge”
November 11, 2010 ; presented on December 25, 2010.

It is not uncommon these days to hear terms like knowledge society, knowledge economy, knowledge management, knowledge engineering and so on., every where in social networks , media and local day today gossips Information and knowledege and their generation, storage and retrieval and communication is a pre-requisite of human life nd its existence, since time immememorial.  Some times in the loud noise of the pronouncements of the concept and term so very often one seems to be easily mislead.  One may erroneously think and feel that the so called information/knowledgfe had no role in the shaping human society and its business and activities.  One should sooner or later come out of such fobia.  Knowledge has mattered the society,  may be much intensely thean today, in the past.  The difference could be  only in terms of ease, speed and convinience of handling it some time back we were very clear about the meaning of infomation and knowledge.  It is grossly unfortunate now that knowledge is brought to the level of data and information.l.. May be we will pay heavily on this error later.  Much of information and its processing now is computable and progammable.  May be we need to restrict ourselves at this level.  I still find it hard to digest our computing abilities when it comes to knowledge and wisdom.  This is not to undermine the importance of developments with regard to artificial intelligence and robotics.  May be the concept could have become a handy tool in the hands of modern busines sicience, may be our businesses have graduated to their second levels.  But some where some how we need to progress towards a distinction between statisticsw, data, numbers , information, knowledge and wisdom.  Let us continue to progress towar4ds arrriving at new break throughs, inventions and innovations without meddling with age old established terminologies for drawing new lines/ bench marks for business excellence.

Reading with difference

Reading with difference
Reading continues to be a part & amp; partial of habit of individuals in the modern knowledge society. Just like other seekers of knowledge librarians do read. Reading for the sake of reading
does not normally lead to value addition nor understanding the article we read. The book one reads should be related to one's background, understanding & relevance because according to law of conservation Knowledge neither gets destroyed nor can it be created. Then only what we read gets internalized. When we (librarians) read, we read as a reader only. We need to read browse &  access as librarians. The moment we wear the cap of a librarian what we read becomes more situational & more understandable, as all our works directly or indirectly are related to knowledge organization, knowledge storage and  knowledge retrieval/Dissemination. It is but obvious that we should keep our interest alive to know a more &  more about knowledge, its evolution, history &  eminence.We got down to right this words after reading a write up on "Throwing Light on Knowledge "By G.S. Tripathi…….Speaking tree: Times of India:08/05/2010. Librarians should not miss to read such educative & thought provoking write ups. The high light of the write up should be of interest to every one, librarians too : 1.Knowledge is continuous, 2. Knowledge liberates the mind, 3. Knowledge of the ultimate enables eternal liberation 4; Knowledge is transcendental perception.  5. According to Ralf W. Emerson" A man should learn to detect & watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within". The Ideas of Prof.G.S.Tripathy is so close and relevant  to our literature on knowledge organization. We must really keep learning more & more about knowledge organization from scholars like G.S.Tripathy because Knowledge is power.
