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 🤔

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 ‘Mam, I have two left,’ 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 Courage

I came across this interesting quote on courage…

Courage is willingness to take the risk once you know the odds. Optimistic overconfidence means you are taking the risk because you don’t know the odds. It’s a big difference.
Daniel Kahneman

It got me thinking 🤔

What is courage?

Is it about a dare

To do, to execute

To be, to explore

To experiment or experience

The yet unknown

What is the root of courage?

Where does it stem from?

From fear to fearlessness

From doubt to determination

From confusion to confidence

From uncertainty to certainty

To confront at all costs

What are your thoughts on Courage

Sometimes I feel whenever life through you out to dare without option of retreat

It does so because life knows

That you have it in you

To surmount the odds

Life challenges

And how!

Seeds of Inspiration

You can intend for change

But you cannot force it.

Your message is best understood

In empathic connection.

Do your best

Sow the seeds in hope

Intend well

Let the best happen in time.

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 .

Cosmic Energies

Let it flow…

In between the dance of forces

Is self adjusted neutrality

A flow in harmony.

In allowing to let go completely

Soon tension eases in the flow

In perseverance & patience.

In response than reaction

Creating positive transmutation.

In thoughts words and deeds

Till harmony becomes you.

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

Circles of Change


In the  forward path…
Between anxiety to acceptance
Between doubt &  enthusiasm
Between  denial to acknowledgement
Between confusion to creativity
Between  resistance  to energy
Between fear & hope
There is many circles of transitions
To reorient to the changing times
In it is an exploration  of possibilities
To move on the path forward.
And constant is the circles of Change.

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.

Fluidity of the flow

Let us move with grace

Of fluidity to the new year…

Fluidity of the flow

Is soulful artistry

Both in experiencing the flow.

Being in the flow

Is about aligning

Towards the purpose

Of being the flow.

Taking a decision

Decision is often the difference between greatness and mediocrity. In every man’s life there comes a time when he must search for a cause, a work, an ideal to which he can give himself. Whether he says ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the challenge will determine his future.”

Wilferd Peterson

Taking any difficult decision

Without sitting on the fence

Is not always easy

For it may take all of you

More than what you are ready to commit at times

And yet its liberating

Once you have a decision made

For there is clarity in thoughts

To set things in motion

Leading you to your purpose.
