Truth of it all
Love is the way
For all of us.
Truth of it all
Love is the way
For all of us.
Musings on a flight from France Amsterdam
Onwards and upwards
Here I am traveling light
With heartfelt gratitude
In the giving and receiving
Sight of fresh colors of flowers
In clothes people are wearing
Is a sea change from the mostly black monotones
Sensing summer vibes in the air.
Remembering the romance of Parisian bylines
Hope the time forward is full of hope and possibilities
Looking forward to new experiences …
Every country has a unique culture
Tuning in to the collective personas
Like tasting the wine in every sip
Travel can be a truly an immersive experience.
All it needs is a willingness to travel & adapt to the changing scenarios
And a spirit of tolerance as much as the love for freedom.
Life and Living soulful stories share that come my way…
John D Rockfeller was once the richest man in the world. The first billionaire in the world. By age 25, he controlled one of the largest oil refineries in the US. By age 31, he had become the world’s largest oil refiner. By age 38, he commanded 90% of the oil refined in the U.S.
By 50, he was the richest man in the country. As a young man, every decision, attitude, and relationship was tailored to create his personal power and wealth.
But at the age of 53, he became ill. His entire body became racked with pain and he lost all of his hair. In complete agony, the world’s only billionaire could buy anything he wanted, but he could only digest soup and crackers. An associate wrote, He could not sleep, would not smile and nothing in life meant anything to him. His personal, highly skilled physicians predicted he would die within a year. That year passed agonizingly slowly.
As he approached death he awoke one morning with the vague realisation of not being able to take any of his wealth with him into the next world. The man who could control the business world suddenly realized he was not in control of his own life. He was left with a choice.
He called his attorneys, accountants, and managers and announced that he wanted to channel his Assets to Hospitals, Research, and Charity work. John D. Rockefeller
established his Foundation. This new direction eventually led to the discovery of penicillin, cures for malaria, tuberculosis and diphtheria.But perhaps the most amazing part of Rockefeller’s story is that the moment he began to give back a portion of all that he had earned, his
body’s chemistry was altered so significantly that he got better. It looked as if he would die at 53 but he lived to be 98. Rockefeller learned gratitude and gave back the vast majority of his wealth. Doing so made him whole. It is one thing to be healed. It is another to be made whole.
Before his death, he wrote this in his dairy, “The Supreme Energy taught me, that everything belongs to Him and I am only a channel to comply his wishes. My life has been one long, happy holiday; Full of work and full of play I dropped the worry on the way and God was
good to me every day.”
A profound message in those words.
Whenever and wherever there is hope, faith and love… miracles happen.
In living life’s every moment
As if it’s a miracle in itself
Either there is a miracle for you
Waiting to happen
Or you are the miracle for another
Waiting to unfold
Both are inspiration for one or the other
For out of difficulties
Miracles are born!
Sharing musings from my mother..
Life moves on
Each phase like
the changing face
teaching new lessons
To be detached
To let go
The most valuable lesson
‘To be in the Now.’
Live every moment
As it never come twice
Valuing the PRESENT
As a precious Present.
Live the NOW
With joy and peace
As they are not
For they are in me
Never let the transcient changes affect,
Like water bubbles,
they come and go.
Like passing clouds
With compassion in heart,
With awareness in mind,
With realisation in soul
Be in the Now.
Be in Bliss.
Being a Witness to the wonders..
The unabashed beauty of this world is but an illusion.
Marking time in the constancy of change.
Whatever good is in this moment is a gift of now
To wonder in awe and receive in gratitude…
And when reality bites as the seasons change.
It is in us to learn to witness without want but with understanding and patience.
As all is in the turning of time….
In any organization
When leadership listens
Empathy is nurtured
Safe space is created
Teams bond in trustfulness
In balanced motivation
Both intrinsic & external
Work becomes less dense
Creativity flows through
In collaboration & coperation
Valuing diversity of potential
Possibilities are explored
In freedom & growth
Collective intelligence resolves
Challenges gets simplified
Structure becomes systems
Protocols are in place
Organizations get organized
Change is acknowledged
In faith goodwill and trust
That we are stronger together
As respect becomes culture.
There is unity in diversity.
The way we feel has much to do with the way we think
The way we think has much to do with the way we behave
The way we behave has much to do with our notions assumptions and perceptions.
And the way we are perceived has much to do with the way we carry ourselves.
Our personality & attitude is our projection of our personas
Our nature is interweaved with the emotional state of being .
In acknowledging this…
Our life’s journey evolves in awareness.
What we say to ourselves
Is immensely impactful!
Lets understand the power
Within each of us.
Let’s review our internal dialogues…
When you are about to say
‘ Let me give up’
Change it to
Let me try again
When you think
I am not enough
Can you say
I am capable as I am.
When you fear failure
Can you learn from failure
And emerge stronger from the experience
Life truly has many possibilities
For those who care to see
And acknowledge life’s lessons.
When you look at other people through a lens of compassion and understanding rather than judgment and jealousy, you are better able to see them for what they are—human beings.” ~ Unknown
The way we see the world
Changes our experiences
Lesser assumptions & doubt
Lesser the complexity
Greater the clarity.
Writers knowingly or unknowingly
Reveal a lot through words
In the way they write
In the words they choose
To express themselves
If the writer adopts a style
It becomes his identity
A pattern begins to form
Of the soul through the words
Yet there is always more
Than the words can tell
In the perspectives
For every life is a mystery
In itself to unearth in time.
It is a habit of a lifetime to cultivate
To remember to be kinder to oneself as much as another
It’s good to acknowledge the now
And remember every movement is happening
As it is preordained.
Let worries take a backseat
As well as the need for overt perfection.
Just keep the faith and hope alive in your heart
Simply know deep within…
All is well as it is meant to be.
Witness the wisdom
In the stillness
Beneath the din
In the silence
Betwixt the sound
In the spaces
Between the moves
As you dance
Tapping your toes
To your own heartbeats
Life senses your rhythm
And waltzes along with you,
Peace is not won in battles
Peace reigns in the heart of man
Lets make way for inner light to step out.
Let peace and goodwill guide the way!
