Inks of Hope

In your deepest turmoil

Writing becomes a let out

Words sensed and inked

Can bring balance to living

Such is the power of writing.

When life and living

Leaves scars behind

The pen colours life with hope.

With freshness of perspective

Hope inks itself into existence

And life goes on..

Work from home

Should the Corporates Invade our Homes…?

A youngster was attending a video conference with his Manager who was upset over the background noises. The Youngster turned around and told his grandmother to keep quiet.

She walked towards the youngster, to take a look into what he was doing and saw a person on the Monitor and asked, “Who is he?”

The youngster muted his audio and video and said, “He is my Manager”.

She said, “I want to talk to your Manager”. But the youngster denied. By the time the Manager started pinging the youngster and the youngster unmuted to talk and his grandmother shouted, “Manager I want to talk to you”.

The Manager agreed and the youngster unmuted the video. The grandmother, with a smile said, “Namaste” and introduced herself and the Manager also greeted her.

She said, “You look upset”.

The Manager said, “Yeah, some kind of work tension, a lot of noise around your house and we are not able to complete the meeting in time”.

The Grand Mother asked, “May I help solve your problem?”

Her grandson was stopping her and telling her to keep quiet.

The Manager said, “It’s ok, let her speak”.

The Grandmother narrated, “Once there was a Young man, who sat under a tree for taking rest. He was continuously hearing a bird’s sound. He lifted his head and seeing a bird, started chasing it, so that he could peacefully take some rest. The bird came closer to him and said, “You are taking rest under my nest. I will not ask you to leave this place but you should learn to co-exist with us”.

The Grandmother looked at both of them and said, “Your Home is your nest” where you are supposed to take rest and bond with your dear and near ones. I do understand the Covid-19 situation, but you should also understand that our home is not your office.

*When we come to visit our family members at your office place, we are expected to behave professionally or maintain a certain decorum.*

Similarly, when you are using our home for your office work, you should understand the situation at our home.

There is nothing wrong with working from home, but remember, it is the family members benevolent nature, that is keeping the corporate world functioning today and the economy running.

She looked at the manager and asked, “Am I correct ?”

*The Manager’s mother peeped and said “You are absolutely right”.*

Words of wisdom

The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.

The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding.

The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm nor the voice that echoes it.

And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither.

For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man. And even as each one of you stands alone in God’s knowledge, so must each one of you be alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth.

Kahlil Gibran…

One of my favorite writers with profound words of wisdom.

I had been introduced to his books as a teenager but have revisited his works especially ‘ The Prophet ‘ many times just to soak in the learnings.

Learning is best done in willingness & curiosity to explore the beyond.

Teaching is best done in understanding the learnings and the learner.

Learning never stops it is like a river that flows…

The teacher creates curiosity for learning takes you to the river banks of knowledge and then allows you to quench your thirst, assimilate the learning to expand your horizons of learning.

Finding the good…

These are certainly abilities worth cultivating :))

Ability to see the good is a great habit to cultivate

Ability to respect the people for who they are.

Ability to work with diversity of thoughts

Ability to coexist in peace and harmony.

Ability to generate goodwill whenever we can.

Ability to make light of things

Ability to dance in the rain

As much as in the lightness of being.

Learnings in Life.

I loved these lines …

On learning in life.

Life is blessed

In valuing the gifts we have,

In cultivation of skills we are enriched

And life is transformed in the choices we make.

Life is full of infinite learnings

Endless opportunities and possibilities …

Life is how we make it!

For the love of books

A book bound or otherwise

Is a treasure to an ardent reader

Who knows the emotions sensed,

In the company of a good book

Of times, well spent in the joy of reflections.

Reading is a beautiful voyage of discovery… of new learning and associations in assimilation.

Books, that transport us back and forth in time in a moment.

Books, that beckon us to a world of imagination.

Books, that create the magic of words

Books, that speak of truths and illusions

Books, that contain stories of life & living

Have you a favorite book that comes to mind immediately?

Cultivate space…

As we cultivate a space

Within and around us

To listen and observe

To understand and care.

We access the underlying wisdom

As we allow ourselves to notice

The ways of life and living

We come across fresh perspectives

When we allow ourselves to hear

The sounds of silence

We sense our feelings

We accept our emotions

And likewise..

We tune inwards a little more

In this conscious awareness

We practice…

To tap into our intuitive intelligence

In every cell of our being

Speaking through our senses.

To access the powers within.

All we need is to cultivate space.

On Self Care & Compassion

A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day.
A string of such moments can change the course of your life.”

Soul wisdom

Yes the heart knows

What feels good for you…

Yet the Souls wisdom

Shows the way

If you choose to allow

The intuitive intelligence

To guide you towards

What is good for your being.

Allow and Listen to Sense

To learn more…

Centering

Align the self

Assimilate the learning

Acknowledge the lesson

Amplify your purpose

Accept your presence

Allow yourself to simply be

Beautiful
Osaka

Such tranquility

Peaceful pink haven

Beautiful serene places…

A lovely moment of reckoning

To breathe in and sense

The glory of nature

In all its Springtime expressions.

A dedication

Yesterday was Celebrated as World Poetry day

A dedication …

Video credits:Fb

Wisdom from souls who know
Say angels fly, as they take themselves lightly
A matter of being at ease..so that you will traverse far
Fly knowing the roots are steady on the ground
Soar in the sky sensing the wind in your wings.
Stay on course… you will find yourself.

Life is better the moment you realise
Its value in every now.
So when worry and despair imbalances your thoughts
When anguish and self doubts rocks your self esteem
Rest assured it shall all pass and time will get you over the brink
Just care to have faith, ease up your thoughts
And choose to live, dancing lightly with life .

Resonated deeply with this lovely visual shared by Sanja Sremacki so resharing it along with my verses above as a dedication to this very beautiful reflection of ‘Living life in the lightness of being’.
