Making Choices

January 25, 2009
“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”
– Mark Twain

So what do you do when hope is hard to find? Surrounded by lies, each made up with pieces of truth? .. and what do you do, when you feel the difference in kind, and not just in degree..?

A part of being human is the ability to make choices.. So what you can do then is to make one!

WSO2 team is working around the clock for the GA release of our revolutionary middleware product WSO2 Carbon.

Already known to be flexible, agile and extensible, the final beta release of Carbon was made available on the 12th of this month. The team is currently working on several release candidates.

With this release, we will have WSO2 Web Services Application Server (WSO2 WSAS) v3.0, WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (WSO2 ESB) v2.0, WSO2 Registry v2.0 and WSO2 Business Process Server (WSO2 BPS) v1.0 coming out as carbon-based products.

WSO2 team will then go on to make the framework itself available as a download.

How to Use the Secret: The Law of Attraction

January 4, 2009

The secret reveals the most powerful law in the universe. It has been visible from the start, but only dimly so.

We live in a universe that has laws. The law of gravity, the law of attraction etc.
What you think and what you feel and what manifests is always a match. Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what is in the process of becoming. (I agree. With only a very few exceptions)

Align yourself to the receiving. Attitude, gratitude, joy, enthusiasm, motivation, impulse, intuition are ways in which you could do that. If you’ve been there in the mind – then you will go there in body.

How bad do you want change?
