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.
I believe to learn is to share and to share is to learn some more.
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.
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…
Happiness is in you!
Tommorow is another new day!
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…
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.
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.
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
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
Let the best happen in time.
Accepting the difficult truths
Can be hard
Most challenging at times
But in acceptance
Is an ease of being
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 .
Let it flow…
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
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.
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.
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.
All is a flow in the circle of life.
Life goes on!
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.”
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.
