YOU are alone: The mediator is one who dives deep into aloneness, knowing that we are born alone, we will be dying alone, and deep down we are living alone. So why not experience what this aloneness is? It is our very nature, our very being. – Osho
Free Yourself: The search ends with the realization that there is no such thing as enlightenment. By searching, you want to be free from the self, but whatever you are doing to free yourself from the self is the self. – U.G.. Krishnamurti
You are DIVINE: The Divine is present in everyone, in all beings, in everything. Like space it is every where, all pervading, all powerful, all knowing. The Divine is the principle of Life, the inner light of consciousness, and pure bliss-our very own Self. – Mata Amritanandamayi
Birth & death: There is nothing as fearful as death, and there is no suffering as great as birth. Be free from the fear of both birth and death, by doing away with attachment to the body. – MAHAVIRA, Mulachara
It’s opportunity: The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative and reflective people, who know to see a problem as an opportunity. Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it’s realistic or not. – Deepak Chopra
Two river pilots escaped with slight injuries when a massive ship hit two boats and pontoons in the River Nene at Sutton Bridge on Tuesday night.
The 80m long cargo vessel, Lady Nora, was on its way from Wisbech to a port in The Netherlands when the accident happened at about 7.45 pm.
There were people on the pilot berth of the vessels and the ship nearly wiped them out.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency said two casualties were taken to hospital.
A spokesman for Fenland District Council, which employs the pilots, said two of its marine staff were “slightly injured”.
The council spokesman said today (Wednesday) one man was taken to hospital, where he was checked and discharged on Tuesday night.
He continued: “The other saw his GP for a check-up this morning. Both men have been told to rest for a few days.”
The council hasn’t commented on a report of a vessel hitting fendering
at Cross Keys Bridge three weeks ago, but denied a claim there was a trainee pilot on board the Lady Nora at the time of Tuesday’s crash.
