Life strings

We are strings of matter
Asserting ourselves in the giant spindle of time.

A string
Is meant to connect
It is also to be a bridge of bonding
Like a string of pearls
To string is to align with a purpose.

We are divinely connected in the subtler realms
To the infinite strings of matter.

Yet in the physical realm
We hold the strings to many
We pull these strings at times too lightly or forcefully
And what was meant to be for alignment ,Β  instead creates imbalances.

The strings we hold or latch onto
The strings that are passed into our hands
And the strings we want to control
All have a deep significance to the way weΒ  were are,Β  we are and what our future will be…


Care to acknowledge our stringed existence in the interconnects.
Aspire to untangle the threads yet value the rootedness therein.


Aim to reach beyond the shackles of being
Unlearn to learn
Reach beyond knowing.

Life heals as its aligns and manifests the truth of its own potential.

The Gift

The Gift

We have a gift within each of us.

The gift of life!
It’s ours to take care.
We have another gift in and around us.
It’s in which we are.
The gift of this world!
It’s a gift we have for a while with us.
So that we can pass it on, to our children.
Let’s value the gifts we have.
Let’s remember to sense its preciousness.
Let’s never take it for granted.

For without it nothing is.

Think & know

Think One positive thought

In an array of thoughts

Imagine it and it manifests

And every time you do

Know you are creating joy

Within and around you.

Creative Journey

Photo by Meruyert Gonullu on Pexels.com

Creativity thrves in an open minded approach with an ability to trust and try.


To take a chance is to take a step into the unexplored unknown dimensions of potential possibilities.

The creative spirit is replenished in such an atmosphere.The forays into the unknown can be a pure game of chance.

A dare unto beyond that may or may not pay rich dividends. But in those trials and tribulations a creative soul is nurtured. And new paths are created to journey on!

Nature finds its way

We are what we are
With the possibilities for evolution
Inside us all.
And yet each arrives at their own time
To the journey meant for them
To carve a path that they are meant to.
Life never claims to be fair
Life is as is
It is within us to know
What to hold on to hone, or set free
For nature is always in flow
And true nature always finds its way.

How to see the good

When bad is doing the round

To bring the good in focus

Perhaps you need to search

For it in their way of being

In the visible & hidden nature

There is much that happens

In the circumstances

And much that goes invisible

For it cannot be expressed

For it is seen as a weakness

To be vulnerable

To be sensitive & emote

Are qualities that are negated

For it makes ones life difficult

But life has many shades

The very weakness for one

Can be a strength for another

It’s all in the way we see it.

Every life is precious

With many gifts of nature

It is in us to acknowledge.

All is a dance

There is a dance
In every leaf and flower
In every bud and bloom
In every twig and tree
In every turn and twist
In every life in the living
Of natures creation.
There is grace of uniqueness
Of patterns, of wisdom Beyond compare…
All knowing, all pervading
Magnificent Omnipresence.
Amazing Nature
Amazing Grace.

On Connectedness

We are bonded in a connection

By infinite fibers between us

Both visible & Invisible

At times tangible in the feeling

Some times palpable in the sensing

But it takes an acknowledgement

Of the beauty of us beyond the I.

Wind in the shell

We are all mere wind in a shell
Winding &unwinding
Our thoughts in every now


We are travellers shoring our souls
One beach to another
Evolving along the way…

Gift of this now

This now is full of infinite possibilities

For every day is replete with potential

Whatever the path you take

Your life’s moments are a gift

You are meant to sense

So care to take a moment

To acknowledge the gifts

Of this moment as it is

See how everything connects

To every thing else.

And if you truly wish

You can create more moments

Of joy and light in & around u

Start simply by a practice

Of acknowledging this moment in this now..

Make today count!

Happy Women’s Day

Stories from Life and Living

In this series I share stories that are thought provoking, inspiring, motivational or touching our lives in some way or the other.

Better late than never

My mom had a lot of problems. She did not sleep and she felt exhausted. She was irritable, grumpy, and bitter. She was always sick, until one day, suddenly, she changed.

The situation was the same, but she was different.

One day my dad said to her:

– I’ve been looking for a job for three months and I haven’t found anything, I’m going to have a few beers with friends.

My mom replied:
– It’s okay.

My brother said to her:
– Mom, I’m doing poorly in all subjects at the University …

My mom replied:
– Okay, you will recover, and if you don’t, well, you repeat the semester, but you pay the tuition.

My sister said to her:
– Mom, I hit the car.

My mom replied:
– Okay daughter, take it to the workshop, find how to pay and while they fix it, get around by bus or subway.

Her daughter-in-law said to her:
– Mother-in-law, I come to spend a few months with you.

My mom replied:
– Okay, settle in the living room couch and look for some blankets in the closet.

All of us at my mom’s house gathered worried to see these reactions.

We suspected that she had gone to the doctor and that she was prescribe some pills of “I don’t give a damn about 1000 mg.”

She would probably also be ingesting an overdose.

We then proposed to do an “intervention” to my mother to remove her from any possible addiction she had towards some anti-tantrum medication.

But what was not the surprise, when we all gathered around her and my mom explained:

“It took me a long time to realize that each person is responsible for their life, it took me years to discover that my anguish, my mortification, my depression, my courage, my insomnia and my stress, did not solve their problems but aggravated mine.

I am not responsible for the actions of others, but I am responsible for the reactions I express to that.

Therefore, I came to the conclusion that my duty to myself is to remain calm and let each one solve what corresponds to them.

I have taken courses in yoga, meditation, miracles, human development, mental hygiene, vibration and neurolinguistic programming, and in all of them, I found a common denominator: finally they all lead to the same point.

And, it is that I can only interfere with myself, you have all the necessary resources to solve your own lives.

I can only give you my advice if you ask me and it depends on you to follow it or not.

So, from now on, I cease to be: the receptacle of your responsibilities, the sack of your guilt, the laundress of your remorse, the advocate of your faults, the wall of your lamentations, the depositary of your duties, who should solve your problems or spare a tire every time to fulfill your responsibilities.
From now on, I declare all independent and self-sufficient adults.

Everyone at my mom’s house was speechless.

From that day on, the family began to function better, because everyone in the house knows exactly what it is that they need to do.

The way ahead

In every now

Is a choice

To enhance life

Within and around you

Whatever path you take

But how you live your life

What you feel in the living

What you choose to notice

What you are listening

And what you understand

From it all defines the now

And charts the way ahead.

Patterns at play

All of life is a dance…

Every being has its own ballet

Every life it’s own patterns

Every pattern has its own path

Every path its own flow

Every flow its own beauty

All is uniquely orchestrated

To manifest and align in time.
