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.

Waltz of the lights

Waltz of lights on the water….

Down the memory lane

A boat, a river, and I.

A canal trip on the River Reie

Beautiful Bruges at night

Shimmering lights

Dancing on water

Ever so gently

Creating a moment

Worth a capture!

Signs

There are signs that seem to appear

Out of nowhere

That make us hope, have faith

That help retain our trust

That shows the way

In our darkest hours.

There is a communion

Of our senses with our soul

A beautiful serendipitous wave

That washes through us

To bring clarity along the way.

The truth is always with you…

Guiding us to believe

To see the bigger picture.

To know nothing is accidental

There is always something more.

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!

Becons of Hope

Your choice to be who you are

Rests with you.

You choose the way you behave

Your attitude to life is your own.

Your behavior is yours to own.

Show up for yourself

Choose to be the best you can!

Choose to leave a heart print of hope

Whenever you can

Wherever you are.

The world will thank your being.

For thats what the world needs most.

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.

On Awakenings


Awaken the spirit
From the slumber
Arise to a new day
As you begin a new way
Acknowledge the circle of life
Of awareness in the awakenings
That’s all-encompassing in flow
Than just inward or just outward
Live with hope of transcending
The limitations of knowing the self.

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 ′′

Whats your focus on?

Choose to focus on building than breaking

Choose to generate than disintegrate

Choose to see the hope than hopelessness.

Where and what is your focus on?

Focus on good choices,

As you clarify your intentions

In appreciation than criticism

You begin building bridges

Of hope in possibilities

You create hope than insecurities

Your focused positive approach

Yields you to do more, much much more!

Life Management

Tenets of life and living.

Honesty speaks the truth of Integrity

Simplicity speaks of true abundance.

Courtesy extended speaks of true power.

Silence speaks much, without a sound.
