A prayer is a bow of acceptance.
A prayer is a joyous amalgamation to the divine within.
There is always a reason
For things as they are
For people to be who they are
For time to be as is
So dont worry!
Just be happy…
A poignant tale of a little child sensing the favoritism by her own father was shared by my friend Ali Anani in his post….
Here are my reflections on this post… which I had initially shared with him privately but then realized that perhaps it needs to be read and understood in the larger context of the trials and tribulations in life and living..
Truth has a way of baring open the wounds of the heart and mind on its path of healing the hurt.
For truth is on its own path of self correction in this world.
For unfairness and
Injustice has to somedayfind justice
Exclusion to inclusion
Doubts to clarity.
When truth speaks
In one way or another
It is important to listen
In empathy without judgements
Truth speaks as it is
In all of innocence
Or in wisdom of awareness.
Innocence can be daunting to handle . But addressing the truth one way or the other
Leads to discoveries of how little we know or of what is sensed & perceived.
In the story that my friend shared…here are instances of lack of inclusion in a family
Where in one day there is marked difference in the way the father speaks,
When the child says
Why are you speaking to me…
Interesting to note that you perceived the young child as witty
Whereas another may perceive it as defiance,or even an evidence of an awareness of lack of inclusion and discrimination at this household in the young child’s mind.
And that she is voicing it in all of innocence.
What would be of significance is how the father addresses this brewing disconnect.
Lack of love can be a difficult phase at any age especially for a child.
Let’s trust the universe to show the way for this child to receive what she is yearning for one way or another.
May every life be able to sense love and live life lovingly.
Humility is a conscious practice in awareness.
Until it becomes a way of life.
In knowing that there is always more
Than what the eyes can see
Or the spirit can do
The soul knows
To reach beyond knowing
It is important to acknowledge the space
To allow learning to take place
Humility is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
A practice of humility
In thoughts words & deeds,
In listening to understand,
In letting go in faith and fortitude,
In making way for gratitude
In being hopeful in trust
In moderation and measure
Can unlock the inner potential
For humility is full of possibilities.
If ever there is a shred of doubt
Of how life will pan out
How things will be
Or what will eventually happen
The source coder has the divine plan all figured out.
In trust & faith, in grace and in goodwill there is synchrony of the synergies.
And therein is the bliss in the bless.
The river of time is ever flowing
Where are you in this now?
Are you adrift for a reason or flowing along in purpose?
Are you sensing there is more
For you to do before you arrive
Where you want to go…
Are you feeling you are rushed
Carried through without a say
Or are you fighting alone
And wishing for some support and strength
Know wherever you are in this journey
You are meant to be and do
All that you deeply intend
For the river courses through
And finds its way to the sea…
Trust time to deliver all I’m good time
Trust yourself along the way
For you are not only in the flow
You are the flow
To think happy
Create some space in you
Allow happy thoughts in
Think well to feel happy
Inside out…and outside in
Reach out with good intentions
Wellness is a work in progress
Be well and be happy 😊
I read these two lines by Stan Smith today…
Experience tells you what to do
Confidence allows you to do it .
Will also add…
And patience paves the path.
For all that you need
Will reveal itself in time.
Trust yourself to deliver.
Sharing my photo of a beautiful bloom from my garden…for who better than a flower to express this truth of life.
Think well & trust you.
Your dreams holds the key to your purpose …dare to live it !
Yet often dreams hold a vision
To some part of your life
Dreams speak to you
When you least expect it to
Do you have dreams that are vivid
That you just can’t forget
Maybe there is a reason
For it to be so , perhaps there is a learning
For you to understand more.
Have you had times where dreams have conveyed the truths which you perhaps know but have not acknowledged.
Dreams interpretation has more to say beyond the obvious.
Yet personally I have found my own interpretation for some of my vivid dreams
An in the knowing is the healing.
This caption caught my eye. Sharing my thoughts…
Agreed finding the self is the key
In every moment of living.
For living it purposefully.
Yet the question remains…
To find yourself
And be alive to life in every now.
Be present to the moment
Give it your full attention
Acknowledge what is in this now
Be open to possibilities
Allow space to accept
Know what is, is not all.
There is much potential in you
That is awaiting your awareness
Breathe in hope and let fear go
This way you consciously create
Space to grow.
To allow perspectives
To be inspired
To aspire in hope…
And be all that you can be.
Any other answers?

Musings on Positive Mindsetting and Optimism by my mother Anjana.
Love this piece by her.
Seeing the glass half full or half empty makes a lot of difference to your mind set. Positive thinking is not to ignore the negativities of
matters or situations. It is to see the options to overcome the obstacles in the best possible way. Seeing goodness and being positive reduces unnecessary stress and unwanted heaviness of heart. It lightens the mind, to a cheerful mood and to a healthy you.
Being positive does not erase the difficulties or seriousness of the problem. But when you look at the light out side the dark tunnel, finding ways to cross the darkness becomes easier. The severity of the dark cloud fades away when you have the bright Sun in your vision. A positive mind strengthens your will power to cope up in situations , reduces your stress level resulting in a healthier you, increases life span.
A positive mind can identify and filter the negative thoughts at its seed level and tries to steer away from it. Devoid of imaginary fears you can see problems at its reality with an optimistic mind. Approaching life, facing its realities with a positive attitude makes solutions easier. It gives you better resiliency over adversity, reduces depression, improves your immunity. When your mental strength is increased, it becomes easy to identify and manage challenges, to bring out best positive results.
A positive mind makes you more stronger, , more communicative, more people friendly, more humorous, & healthier. It makes you a better person to be with.
Always be positive, be happy, be healthy. Surround yourself with positive people.
Respect your self
And show respect to others
In thoughts words & deeds
No matter how deserving
In empathy & compassion
It is a reflection of your nature
It speaks much of who you are.
Others will respect you.
When you respect self effort
As well as another’s
You reinforce self discipline
And let it guide manners
When you dont allow yourself
To be disrespected
None can take you for granted
Or behave as if you don’t matter.
Care to own your space in the sun.
The world will be better by it.
Begin the day…
Affirming positive intentions
In hope and goodwill
Keep the faith alive in trust and strength of self belief
Think of health and happiness
Peace and prosperity
Joy & love
For one and all
In this whole wide world
May all of life thrive
In this now and forever.
May we all…
In abundance in thoughts words and deeds.
