On Acceptance

The Road to Acceptance has many challenges in the learnings… not often easy, but certainly transforming in one way or the other.

Like there are many aspects to understanding
In acceptance there are many perspectives
Acceptance is not giving up or being in the same place.
To me a practice of acceptance is an ability to respect the now and in turn acknowledge the transient nature of everything.
To accept then is to be able to have a feel or a vision of the situation as it is experienced in the now.

The Paradox of acceptance is being defenseless to yin and yangs of life and living. Yet to envision that acceptance comes from a place of strength, is to be able to understand that we are not one entity but made of many parts that matter to the whole.
So the stance of acceptance is about flow & movements in the stillness , in hope to evolve in time along with the changes.

Making peace with the now

On letting go ….

Making peace with the now
Very easy they say
Follow the breath
And peace flows
Yet…
We all know
That it is quite a task
To be consistent
That’s how life is!

Such is truth in itself
In this now
As every moment
Gives in to the new
We are meant to be
To learn and unlearn

Our senses
Our emotions
Challenge us in the changes
Our system takes a toll
Our beliefs turn around
In soul searching ways…

And then we learn to see
The moment as it presents itself
All judgements & assumptions
All prejudices & preconceived notions
All fade away into the oblivion

We live in this moment
In engagement again
But with this now
Without forgetting what’s gone
But forgiving times by gone
For only then we make space
For peace to flow in…

Razors Edge

On the razors edge, there is poignant elegance

Beautiful poise, precariously in balance

Amidst the fury of the fire raging beneath

She stand resolute in her calmth

Not helpless but in knowing nature’s ways

That in time, all is well back to base.

Beauty on the outside burns off into the ember

Leaving an ashen pile of dust to remember.

Yet deluding the fury in being uprooted

In the strength of the grounding firmly rooted

Leaving an evergreen picture of poise

She has that stoic stance of grace.

A pose of composure on destiny’s face

In spite of a life abruptly denied

She is the beauty of grace personified!

Breathe in Peace

Own your breath

Inhale the good

Let go the spurious

Anything that never matters

Is bound to bounce off.

What is necessary receive

With atmost regard.

Your breathe holds the key

Unlock the healing potential

As you breathe deeper

With all of your awareness

In every inhale and exhale.

Breathe in peace.

A place called Hope

There is a place

That fills you with positivity

Enriches you with expansiveness

Embodies inclusiveness.

Enough to keep your faith going.

Endowed with trustfulness

Believe in possibilities.

A place of potential value

Thats nurturing in itself.

That lights the way forward.

A place that speaks to all of you!

A beautiful place called hope!

Taking life lightly

Birds fly higher and higher

As if they are as light as a feather

They take themselves lightly!

Full of faith trust & self belief .

To be able to soar high

Onwards & upwards

Choose to let go of burdens

That create density

In thoughts words & deeds

Unfold the wings of freedom

Unfurl in the lightness of being

There is joy in sensing freedom

Thats who you truly are!

On Mentoring




None can tell you what is the truth
As much as you yourself can!
Often a mentor , a guide a teacher
Can take you near your truth
But  its all up to you to own yours


Every truth is colored by perspectives
Of its own creation.
Every person has a truth
That needs to be reckoned with
As the perspectives converge
There is an emergence
Of the truth of one’s being.

What is beautiful?

Here is a beautiful forward that caught my eye.

When they asked her to reveal her beauty secrets, Audrey Hepburn wrote this beautiful text that was later read at her funeral.

′′ To have attractive lips, speak kind words.

To have a loving look, look for the good side of people.

To look skinny, share your food with the hungry.

To have beautiful hair, let a child cross it with his own fingers once a day.

To have a beautiful poise, walk knowing you’re never alone, because those who love and loved you accompany you.

People, even more than objects, need to be fixed, spoiled, awakened, wanted and saved: never give up on anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a hand, you’ll find them at the end of both your arms.

When you become old, you will discover that you have two hands, one to help yourself, the second to help others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, in her face or in her way of fixing her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the door open to her heart, the source of her love.

The beauty of a woman doesn’t lie in her makeup, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It is the tenderness that gives love, the passion that it expresses.

The beauty of a woman grows over the years ′′

Live Love Laugh!

In Laughter is the shedding

Of the spurious

A cleansing of the hearts

A bridging of joys in this now!

In laughter is the clearing

Of the burdens

A lightness of being

A healing of the spirits

For Laughter makes you sense

The happiness of this now!

Laugh a little more everyday!

If not now then when?

If not now then when…
Will we distinguish the need and want
For between them is a line of balance
To understand in awareness
To acknowledge in understanding
Some needs are common to life & living.
But wants are more specific in nature.
The motivation of these wants
Is both intrinsic and extrinsic
Some wants are by nature
And some wants are formed in nurture.

To be motivated towards thinking
Of what to have and let go in time
Is a matter of discernment
In conscious consideration
A matter of introspection
To bring about waves of changes in action.
Moving beyond the apparent realities
It’s a matter of awareness of the imprints
Of life and living…
A subject of substantial deliberation
Not too common a pathway.
And yet an offbeat road leads to surprising revelations

Learning from Children

Taking things easy…

The day we learn to be light and live in lightness and not take things so seriously, we start truly living.

After all the sun will rise and set in its own course, life will flow in the river of time, why not think of living it cruising along knowing nothing lasts forever.

Whenever life feels a little too weary..

Know tomorrow is another day

And there is always a sun awaiting to shine…

The fault in our…

We often complicate things which are actually very simple.

Perhaps the idea of simplicity is embedded in the complexities

Our ways of life and living often weighs us down in density.

The simple life is seen to be difficult to sustain

We are drawn to searching for more ways of entrapment of our senses

That our views have become colored in the distractions.

The simple truths are submerged in the illusory facades.

Our perception changes with our attitude

The way we see things changes the way things are.

A Grateful Heart

Its good to never let the things you want ,

Make you forget the things you have.

How about Practicing Gratitude as a way of being.

Making it a daily habit and a part of life and living.🙏

Power of Ripples

On Kindness



A ripple of kindness goes a long long way….


One little  movement from the heart
One tiny step to help
One single act in compassion
One bit of genuine care

Have the propensity to travel far
And influence many to kind deeds.
That await  for a sign somewhere
Remember the power of the ripples.
