On perspectives

A thought provoker…

People called him mad man but I was surprised when he moved close to me, and said, “can I ask you a very important question?” I nodded, in acceptance, and then he asked, “am I a mad man?”
The obvious answer, from a sane person, will be, “no”, and that was what I said. “Thank you!”, he replied; then he said, “just because I don’t see things the way other people do, does that make me a mad man?” “No”, I answered again.
He bent down, wrote “W”, and asked me what he wrote. At this point, I was already feeling ashamed, getting involved in a lengthy conversation with him. In a hurry to leave, I said “w”, but I was amazed when he replied to my answer, “You only see ‘W’, because of the angle at which you are looking at it. If you turn upside down, you’ll see “M”; from the right side, it is “3”, and from the left side, it is “E”.
The fact that I don’t see things at the perspective that everyone is seeing it doesn’t make me a mad man, he said. Then he left.
I pondered for so long about this though; and more, its application to life. We act, and relate to people, based on the perspective at which we are looking at their situation. Have you taken your time to look at other possible perspectives, views and angles, maybe, a little from their own view before we judge them? I then decided that, before I get angry with, or act against, or judge, anyone that has done something unfavorable to me, I will view it in at least three possible perspectives, mine, theirs and others’.
So, before you judge people, before you rage your anger on them, take a little time to view their angle or perspective, and, if you still cannot see a reasonable reason, then you may act REASONABLY.

On Imagination

In just having the courage to express ourselves,

We open ourselves to a vulnerable and creative self …

And that is the light in us shining througb:)

The Clarity of Simplicity

Whatever causes turbidity
Causes imbalance of being

In creating space for a pause
In allowing time to heal

Turbidity moves on
To make way for clarity.

In the turbidity of thoughts
There is density of the mind

In the simplicity of thinking
There is clarity in the being.

On Attitude

Life at times can be both wondrous and mundane but contains joy,

And the attitude we choose to wear,

Decides if we wish to find the joy in the things we do.

And we become what we choose to be and see!

Have a wonderful day!

Heartfelt words

I cant stop writing about…

Life, the more I live it

The more am learning from it

And the more am healing in the learnings.

Your undivided attention

Listening is about attention

And being present wholeheartedly

Respect is a two faced coin

You gotta give to get

Sincere attention is sincere respect!

Truth of movements

True learning happens when we realize we are the teacher and we are the student. And life teaches the greatest lessons without anyone uttering a word or at times in just the sheer presence of a good soul .

Likewise as we dance from our heart without a spoken word and open ourselves to realization and acceptance of new possibilities… true dancing happens!

Cherish The Gift

Cherish the gift of movement…

Isn’t it wonderful to be able to dance…. to tell your body what you want it to do?

If you are a dancer respect the gift of dance in you .

Even if you are not a trained dancer, acknowledge the ability of expressions and respect the beauty of movements in them .

After all we have a beating heart ….We are all gifted with movements . Let’s cherish the gifts of both the movements and moments in time.

Little things

Many drops of water

Make an ocean

Great things always begin

With the little things

Success is a matter

Of every small step taken

Such is is the power of little  things

For together they can make a big impact.

Enjoy the little things in life 

Attend to the little things that come by

For someday these little things

Create a meaningful world.

The English Language

A fun share

I received a marriage invitation. In the end was printed. ” Your presence itself is a gift. We don’t want any gifts at the marriage.”
I read it again and again. Was getting confused…

Finally I came to the conclusion, that I am not invited. And decided not to attend.
😂😂😂
English is a language which must be carefully handled; otherwise, it leads to wrong and opposite meaning.
