Saturday-Pentacle – Week 1 – 2017

It’s 2017 already and this is the first weekly Saturday Pentacle post of 2017.

I’m excited. Let’s get to it.



Saturday-Pentacle – Week 1 – 2017

Greetings my internet friends,

Here are some popular links, thoughts, and articles for today’s “Saturday-Pentacle” e-mail newsletter. This is a free newsletter and goes out every Saturday only for my subscribed readers.


Post of the week –  New year resolutions – 2017 – 2016 was a great year and 2017’s gonna be better. If only we keep putting the hard work and consciousness into our actions. Check out my this year’s New year resolution list, consisting of a report on last year’s New year resolutions. Hope it is of some inspiration to you as well.

My most popular Instagram post recently — Quintessence of life – I captured this photograph while walking in the streets of Bandra. This photo amazes me, how karma is isolated from religion.

Article I’m enjoying (and pondering) — The Associated Press style guide will no longer capitalize ‘internet’ – I was surprised to learn that ‘Internet’ can no longer be written that way legitimately. It is now ‘internet’ without the capital ‘I’.

What I’m reading/watching/listening toNarcos – I’m binge watching this Netflix series on the biggest drug lord, Pablo Escobar. I was disgusted by learning what power and money, when comes unearned, do to you. So I went on to learn more about his life and how he became what is history now and how he was killed by the Search Bloc.

A Quote I’m pondering on lately – 

“The good in life does not depend on life’s length, but upon the use we make of it. It is possible, or rather usual, for a man who has lived long, lived too little.”

– Seneca the Younger

Until Next Saturday!

Thanks for reading.

Quick endnote – as a few of you guys have told me that emails are not delivering in the Gmail primary inbox and going to promotions tab in your Gmail. I suggest below two pro tips to get my email in your Primary inbox from next time.

  • Add my From email address ([email protected]) to your Google Contacts list.
    Emails from your Google Contacts always go to their Primary inbox. So go ahead and add me to your contact list.
  • Move your emails to the Primary tab.
    You can teach Gmail where to deliver your messages. When you move one of my emails from Promotions tab to the Primary tab, Gmail asks whether it should always deliver my emails in your primary inbox. So please do that. You can also read more about these Gmail Help instructions.
