On Happiness…

What if?


You are given an opportunity to travel to beautiful locales on work or pleasure ,in a country so far away from  your own
Everything  is wonderful and picturesque…

Yet, you are traveling along with people/ or paired with a person of completely different interests.

What if….

If you are a morning person and they are late risers

If you like walking and they like to rest more.

If you like to explore museums and art scenes and they have no interest in anything art

If you want to experience new culture by meeting new people and connecting with them than simply trying out food .

What if you want quick bites on the go and they like fancy dining experiences.

What if you want to start early and you are exasperated as they prefer late afternoon after a lazy lunch…

What if you are up and ready to go and they take a really long time to get ready ūü§Ē

You like to capture experiences and rejoice in the memories and they have no particular interest in photography.

When you like to have a conversation freely and they are too busy or too silent, you often realise its better to remain silent unless spoken to even if there is  company.

What would you do …

You make things right for you!

Let’s see, it’s not all that bad
You are in a new location….

You realise its better to have some company than traveling alone in some places at least.
You begin to appreciate the environment and yourself in it.
You appreciate others who are around.
You pay extra interest in people and places, the quirkiest, even the strangest and most peculiar  things as much as the ordinary  seem to matter somehow.
You try to find happiness in  whatever you see.
You adapt to things as it comes.
You accept¬†everything, as your life’s myriad moments.
You remember to focus on the positives¬† acknowledge the good in them and move on…

After all

Happiness is in you!

And
Tommorow is another new day!

On Acceptance

Accepting the difficult truths

Can be hard

Most challenging at times

But in acceptance

Is an ease of being

Your vulnerability

Can be your strength

It’s all in the attitude

That you may choose to have

In life and living

Accept yourself first

As you are, all of you

The rest will finds its way

To fit in .

Divine faith.

Heart connects.

Faith is a sensing

A knowing of a connection

Intangible yet intensely felt

In faith is an understanding

A learning to be patient

An accepting of more

In faith is a dance of possibilities

In faith is a communion with the divine

Where faith is everything is

The truth of you

A world is writ on your face

Your life plays in every cell

Your body is listening

And receiving in every now

Actively engaging with the changes…

Being one with the truth of you

Yes to this!

Happiness is often about Contentment

And Contentment is about the realization of what you already have

Sensing love of what you do have is true happiness.

Some times true happiness is simply about sensing moments of peace.

What are your thoughts on happiness?

Gratitude for the interconnects

Here’s to the believers
The trusters and the hopeful ones
For those who keep the hope alive in their hearts

They work to change the world for the better
Practicing their arts & live their passion in purposeful ways.


It is through  them values are practiced passed on and sustained.
Power to the practitioners in knowing that there is always more…
To learn unlearn and relearn.

For everything interconnects
Keep the faith
For faith is all there is.
And without it nothing is.

Power of Belief

It all begins with belief

In believing you can

And that there is always hope

For the better in every way

For it takes you places

And makes things happen

Such is the power of belief

Profound and precious

Every move in self-belief

Allows you to get closer

To the truth of you!

Kindsight

With a rich imprint of lessons

The past is behind you

Full of hope & promise

The future is yet to reveal itself

The now is the present

It shows up in myriad ways.

Can we learn from the past

And apply it to this moment

Can we shape this now

And make it matter

Can we breathe in kindness

And make a difference

For this now and forever.

All we need is a willingness

To accept a shift in perspectives.

For the love of dance!

World Dance Research Congress India

A fond reminisce

A moment in time

A community of dancers

A representation of artists

Of myriad dance forms.

Of different nations

A communion of cultures

Beautiful memories ‚̧

On Prayer

Profound truth of Prayer

A prayer is a resonance to  the self.
Often misunderstood are the recitations and stories of God

As offerings in prayers.
Oft repeated to children in their growing years
Or often in communion of like minded souls.
It’s never about  reaching out to distant God
But about connection with the God  within 
Invoking the divinity  in you.

Praising the lord
Hymns or chants
Slokas or mantras

Is about healing & transformation of  the self
In consistent practice
It generates positivism
Purifying  the energy
And creating goodwill
In thoughts and deeds.

Like exercises for the body

They exercise the mind

To think & evolve for the better.

On Opportunity

Opportunity does not just come to you
You walk to it
And when you do
Remember, you are on a new trajectory
There are new challenges  in the changes
Know the strength of your spirit will be tested
Your balance may be tilted
To extremes of possibilities.

Yet, your patience  perseverance & passion for your purpose
Will guide you through
And somewhere along the way
in fleeting  moments
You will feel that gliding, waltzing feeling
Sensing harmony in the synchrony
To that which you truly love ‚̧ԳŹ

What are you waiting for?

Vision in white

Beautiful is the word I sense

Ethereal vision in white.

Under a canopy of sky so blue

A treat to envision

This is the White-wisteria

The Japanese tree.
