Self Evaluation on Group Discussion

- The group discussion has just passed, and it was really a hard work and challenging. There were many precious lessons I got, and, hopefully, so did with my friends. Our group was consisting of four students. As a quantity, reasonably, we had had enough power to do a better work and gained a satisfying result.

Inconsistencies in Discussion Board Administration

The Dao De Jing teaches that we should live a life in which we have reduced our ego to the point of minimizing if not, eliminating its role in our actions and thoughts. By maintaining the smallest ego possible, we are more able to respond to situations with our true hearts, not with the interest of ourselves in mind. By reacting to events and happenings in our life through natural tendencies, we respond through our true self instead of our ego making decisions that maintain our personal interests, or at least keep our personal intere...   [tags: Philosophy]
