On learning

Our education leaves much room for improvement.

But consider these questions for a moment…

Why do you learn what you learn?

Ideally you learn because you are curious to know more and not because you have to finish a degree.

What is the reason for the learning?

Earlier at least in India the aspirations of parents were the reason of choice of what the course of learning would be . The options were limited and no one bothered to check whether the education even resonated with the learners.

How does it make you feel?

Have seen many sensing disconnect as they are pursuing careers in fields which have no connection with their earlier Education.

What way do you apply or use your learnings?

Often most of our prevalent education systems seems very transactional with marks and percentages with the purpose having no significance.

However degrees become meaningless if you do not use your learnings to make a positive difference.

Personally speaking

I believe to learn is to share and to share is to learn some more.

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!

The Potential Within

Aren’t we often biased about our brain’s workings?
Is creativity only by the so-called right-brained?
Is attention to detail only by the logical, left-brained?
We need to see beyond these narrow definitions
To broaden our sense of the spectrum of creativity.

Our creator has bestowed us variety in creativity.
We can be lyrically logical.
Analytically artistic and much more.
There are scientifically proven facts
Spouted from words of poets
And poetical manifestations
Of empirical evidences by scientists.
The proof of concepts
Lies in our nature,
In the fractals of life,
Myriad and mystical
Yet mathematically coherent.

Our brilliance may shine in one field
Because perhaps we haven’t
Yet truly tapped and glimpsed
Into all of our own potential abilities.

Let’s never belittle the true self
For beyond the facade and ego dramas
Our every cell vibration is deeply tuned
To the forces of nature and nurture.

We are far more than we could ever know
We have all imbibed it well in our subconscious
It’s just a matter of time before the awakening
Of the stream of conscious energy in the flow.

As a dance educator, I have very frequently come across statements like ‚ÄėMam, I have two left,‚Äô which meant they were so clumsy that they can’t dance. Or that they have no balance.

This is truly just a perception…

If only we can understand, there is a dance and a dancer in every life. And the dance goes on!
After all, we all have a heart that is beating now!‚̧

I have heard people typically talk of the students of arts as right brained, as they are more artistic. Or a science student classified as left brained and logical.

However, thankful the world now is waking up to understand there is so much more to people beyond these biased compartmentalization. When we begin to see beyond our limited beliefs,, we open ourselves to the potential within.

Our innate potential simply needs awakening to realize, the truth of who we are and what all we can be…

What matters most?

In the deepest of chaos

In times of turmoil

Between the heart and mind

Ask your self

What matters most?

And you will find guidance

That steers you on the path

That’s meant for you.

On self improvement

Like time moving the needle

Every dawn is a message

Of hope and strength

Of better things to come

All happens in faith.

For every dawn is hopegiving

To wake up to possibilities

Let every today be the reason

For a better tommorow

Let the moments of life

Be lit along the way

In hope faith and trust

Of beautiful today’s & tommorows.

The Road Of Life

Life is truly a highway
Without a U turn
You can keep on steering
Without pressing the brake
Accelerate the speed or go slow
But cannot stop for dear life
The steering decides the journey

Dance floor

Any space of Creativity

Be it art, dance or music

Is a free space for the spirit

To breathe free in liberation

Sensing the soul connects

Allowing the flow of expression.

Live and breathe in the art

In life’s moments every day!

As for the dancers…

Stay in touch

With the truth of you

On the dance floor.

Oneness

In knowing we belong

Is a trust in the anchor

In sensing belonging

Is the confidence of interconnect

In between you and another life

Where Oneness is sensed

In between and betwixt

The you and I

To us and the we…

Such is the power of community

Allow & accept

How beautiful  it would  be
If good deeds prevailed in practice.
If altruistic ways can become  a norm
A way of life and living
If  healthy collaboration became a driving  force.
Yet…
Any change is never easy

The key to the new pathways

Is already existing with you

You simply have to acknowledge allow and accept

For it to get activated…

And you can embark on the new road of opportunities your way.

To change anything
It has to permeate the psyche
Of the mind in acceptance.
Then there is transformation.
Nothing lasting happens by force
For force gives way to another mightier force in time
Trust time in patience & perseverance.

Everything  happens in time.
Time shows the way
As time has all the answers.

Trust time to deliver

For all happens well in good time

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!

Listening & Respect

Listening is about attention
And being present wholeheartedly
Respect is a two faced coin
You gotta give to get
Sincere attention is sincere respect!

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.

Power of You

Success follows the action

In intention to completion

In engagement to fulfillment

In planning to execution

In confusion to clarity

Simply dreaming is not enough

Simply thinking is not enough

Simply wanting is not enough

Success follows the passion

Success follows perseverance

Success follows patience

Yet success doesn’t just come.

You go to it

And make it happen.

Success demands effort from you

And consistently so!

Soon you will find yourself

Staring at success right in the eyes

What’s going to matter?

What’s going to  Matter
Is the way we use our skills
Each of us is uniquely  blessed
But how we choose to be
Is in our hands
Skills are just tools
But your emotions  and thoughts can alter life
Let it guide you to do better
Transform your attitude  to life and  living
Life evolves for the better.
