The Beatles Seven Most Experimental Songs
"What's The New Mary Jane". This song which features only John Lennon, George Harrison and Lennon's soon to be wife Yoko Ono. It was not actually released until The Beatles Anthology 3. It was intended for The Beatles incredible 1968 double album known as The White Album (it was actually self titled.) It was not included due to time constraints. The song features a simple piano part, bizarre lyrics, and insane sound effects. The last 4 minutes of the song is basically just spacey sound effects. It's definitely one of those songs that's quite hard to describe with words. It's definitely a real trip.
"Revolution #9". This 8 minute track was included on The White Album and has probably become The Beatles most infamous track. Many hate it. Some love it. Count me among those that loves it. Don't get me wrong, I don't listen to it every time I put the album on, it's not that kind of track. But when I do listen to it, I still find it fascinating [Read more]

Utilizing the Tools of Feng Shui - The Bagua
Shape has an effect on the flow of energy and balance. Hence the Bagua, used like a map can be applied to your plot of land, your house, your rooms, your furniture and even your business and prosperity in life. The Bagua is a most fair and practical way of applying the philosophical principles of the I Ching or what is also referred to as “The Book of Changes” to Feng Shui.
From time immortal, the Chinese have taken to consult and ponder the I Ching for its measures and insights into the very nature of people, places things and interpersonal relationships. Other cultures may have used wizards and astrology. The Chinese used the “Book of Changes “, which we know its Chinese language term “The I Ching”.
It can be said that the very basis of I Ching directs one towards an understanding of what are called and technically described as simply “ trigrams “. Trigrams can be said to indicate the degree of yin and yang. Trigrams in their simplicity explain and demonstrate the ideas of constant change. Not only that but the change illustrated by these trigrams is constant and cyclical- that is not only can you count on it to change but also to change in a similar predictable manner – that is if you live, or persevere long enough.
The statement ‘what goes around comes around” is a testament and example of this philosophy and way of life. In its simplest explanation the octagonal shape of the eight trigrams with unbroken lines represent yang, and broken lines represent yin and is called a or the “Bagua” [Read more]
How to Get Rich: Illusions and Facts
Every one would start worshipping money in an unnatural way then. For functioning in the society, one needs to have some money, so that he can conduct himself comfortably.

Anything additional to this survival amount would definitely be less essential as compared to the health, family, friends, happiness, and spiritual life of yours. Anything less than this amount would become a struggle in terms of survival, and hence, must be avoided at any cost.
You, however, need to understand that it’s not money, but the people causing problems. Money is, in actual sense, a tool which can be used for the betterment of society. A person having good virtues would use the money for constructive purposes; whereas the bad person would go on to do something destructive with the same money. It’s the attitude that matters. It should be noted that a thing mustn’t be labeled evil just because certain bad people tend to use them in an incorrect manner [Read more]
