Loving kindness

No amounts of words we simply hear can help heal the world …

As much as even just a pair of helping hands from loving heart in harmony.

Finding faces

This picture was shared on social media…

Can you see a face in the lake ?🙂

Here are some more faces

How many faces can you see now?

Feel free to trace some more…

Pareidolia (/ˌpæriˈdliə/,[1] US also /ˌpærˈ-/[2]) is the tendency for perception to impose a meaningful interpretation on a nebulous visual stimulus (so that one sees an object, pattern or meaning where in fact there is none).

Ref Wiki
Seeing familiar objects or patterns in otherwise random or unrelated objects or patterns is called pareidolia. It’s a form of apophenia, which is a more general term for the human tendency to seek patterns in random information.
Face pareidolia seems to be a universal phenomenon.

Finding faces in the most unexpected places, may have an evolutionary angle of a need to seek familiarity in the wake of the unknown, for a psychological safety.
Or finding faces in the bonnet of a car that makes it look more fun, friendly & smiling.

Maybe piecing the possibilities together to make sense is an illustration in the illusion…
Whatever the case creativity of the human mind is infinite in its potential to conjure up endless possibilities out of practically nothing concrete.

In the ability to create abstract associations to integrate and create and merge a more meaningful interpretation for ourselves,makes it an art of limitless possibilities.

Soulful Words

Your positive affirmations & intentions

Towards the way you want to be

Your sincere promises and prayers

Says it all, for they are the pathways

Towards creating the life moments

Worth living for!

Becoming trust rocks of resilience

In the stormy phases of life and living.

Where life can seem unbearable.

Bridging through in hope & faith in fortitude.

Such is the strength of the soulful words

That you tell yourself.

Every narrative matters!

A reason to be

A short post and photograph caught my eye and I was drawn to pen a few words.
https://wp.me/p7CppQ-Cc
Thank you Mark Bierman for the wonderful  inspiration.

Life is what we see and make of it.

Life creates something out of nothing

And everything out of something.

The illusions in the envisioning


Are but reflections in the making


Of what is visible, so as to matter


To the purpose of the life within.

Charlie or you or me are as visible


As the sun, the sea or the stars


Partially seen and understood


In the giant plan

Each have an untold story


Each matter in their own way


Each have a reason to be


To each their own.

Love is the way!

Love is the way
For all of us
As each of us matters
Somehow  somewhere
We are all connected
In the infinite plan
And each of us
Need to become responsible
To make a meaningful  difference
For life to thrive than just survive
We need to be respectful
Towards each other
To gain & sustain the trust & faith
That makes the world
A better place to live in
For all of us
Love is the way!

Self Acceptance

In a world  battling for itself

It is time to let oneself be as is

Accepting and acknowledging

The  vulnerability of life

As foibles of life and living

It is not a time to be over demanding

Striving for over perfection

To the tipping  point .

For the challenges of this now

Far outweigh the craze for perfection

Time to be less hard on yourself

And others around  you

And be more grateful 🙏

Gratitude changes perspectives.

Making life a little more bearable

And a lot less complicated.

From wherever we are

Wherever we may be
In this world, we are busy
We are too busy watching this now
For what might happen or go wrong
In doubt and fear of uncertainty


We perhaps, need a moment
Thàt we can can acknowledge
In awareness of where we are now
We might then, take note of all things.


Things that we can be happy about
Things that are not too bad after all
Things we may actually  be joyful about
And then perhaps we can feel better

From wherever we are
However we are, as we are.
There is much, that we can be
Truly grateful for in this life.

Whispers of wisdom

In the din of moment

Is the quiet reflection

Of thoughts in musing

Like a whisper in all its subtlety

Like a soft caress of a breeze

Like a feeling wafting through.

The soul knows…

Unnoticed, unobserved often

Yet felt by one and all in consensus

At one point or the other

That is sensed in the being.

For its the heart that senses…

Whispers that speaks to the soul,

Wherever you are, you know…

Wisdom speaks, to the willing listener.

You are…

You are

All that you believe

All that you want to be

All that you choose to be

All your thoughts and deeds.

All your purpose and passion

All your deepest intentions

Enmeshed in the interconnects.

Of your life and living

As much as in the ebb and flow

Of the river of time.

You are

So much more….

Little things

Life is in the details, in the little things

That often goes unsensed

Unnoticed in the daily humdrum

Of living every day.

If you wish in this now begin

Bu taking a mindful moment

Beyond the challenges of every now

To sense the signs of grace

That is occurring in life.

There is always something

In this now to be grateful for…

Beauty of every dawn is in its unending hope.

Beauty of twilight colours of the sky

Enticing the senses…

The sounds of music, of humming a tune…

The simple Joys of hitting the right notes ..

Yes life is in the sensing after all.

Breakthrough!

ImageCredit to unknown photographer

Strength in the grounding

Here is a truly powerful image

Speaking volumes without a word.

Depicting the power of nature

Breaking through a rock…

Life cannot be undermined

It finds a way to flourish

Nature has a way of nurturing itself

To survive against all odds.

The strength of the spirit

The intention of the soul

Courses through its veins

Until it finds a path to grow

Rooting itself steadfastly

Its grounding is its strength

Nourishing the life

To stay centered .

And grow it does and how…

Spring through summer

Come rain or shine

No autumn can last too long …

As that seemingly leafless tree

Springs forth a hopeful bloom

Sharing the fruits of life and living.

As the seasons change….

Breakthrough are a way of being

Course correcting itself no matter

Finding its bearing in full bloom

Nature is meant to thrive!

On Gratitude

Life is a reflection of our way of living.

The attitudes, the thoughts we carry

The nature of our deeds

All is deeply significant to our states of being.

In depth of gratitude arises acknowledgement

Everything that is, has a reason

Nothing is accidental

In deep gratitude, there is clarity

Clearing the debris of uncertainty

Crystallizing the dimensions in-between

Every once in a while

Partaking in the profoundness of wisdom garnered

Beyond the apparitions

Illusions in the making

And the reality in the reflections

Flowing along in this river of time.

Let go… let flow…

For u may come and go

Through many lifecycles

To sense the truth of the being

Every life has a reason to be

Unshackle the bounds of being.

And bond beyond the bounding.

Evolve to Dissolve, Disolve to evolve

Such is the dance of the spirit & soul

To become nothing and be everything….

Let go, let flow

Be present in the journey

Of many lifetimes

Until your delve into the purpose

Of life and living

So let go let flow …

To just be…

Tommorow’s World

The world we see today

Is changing rapidly

New norms are setting in

We are in a state of flux

From fighting pandemic

To accepting lockdowns

As a way of being

People starved of socialization

Are appeased by bytes of reality

We are attuning ourselves

To being masked at all times

Practicing distancing and being indoors.

But life goes on no matter what

Sensitizing us to new ways of living

What matters most then is

Is that here we are, inspite of it all

We learn to align with ourselves

Moving with care and compassion

From here on empathy guides

Leading us to knowing ourselves.

This is the truth for us all

Of tommorow’s world.
