A Sufi Tale

A Sufi Tale:
A merchant from Baghdad entered a Sufi’s shop, which had essence jars on the shelves.
Marveling at the beauty of the place, he asked, “Sir, what is sold here?”
The Sufi replied, “The gifts of God”.

The merchant was surprised with the answer, & asked, “And how much do they cost?”
“Nothing, here all is for free”, said the Sufi, observing carefully, that the traveller could see the labels: “Jugs of Love”; “Jars of Faith”; “Packages of Hope”.

The merchant said, “A big jug of love, all the packages of hope & three jars of faith for me, my friends & my family”.

The Sufi carefully prepared the order & handed him a small box.
Surprised, the merchant exclaimed, “But, but…. how can everything I have asked for, be in this tiny box?”

Smiling, the Sufi replied, “In God’s store, we do not sell fruits, only seeds. You have to sow them.

In synch

When what you say
And what you do
Are congruent
The effect of your words & deeds
Radiates all around you in resonance.


It’s no wonder then that
In a world that seems so dissonant
Words and deeds need to synch.
In harmony of such synchrony
Faith and trust meet belief
And that’s what makes all the difference.

Why save bees?

Image credits Social Media

Perfect pollinators
Supporting the ecosystems
From wild flowers to food crops


For Interconnections run deep
With the plant and animal kingdom
As much as with all of life and living.

Its said, if bees become extinct as a species
We humans will cease to be, in just four years

They not only produce the nectar of life
Bees sustain the delicate balance
Of the environment of our world.

Being Light

Dance you heart out

Walk your worries away

Talk to lighten the load

Breathe easy

Sleep well

Take on only what you can,

Have and appreciate good memories

Express love and love yourself

Take note of the good always.

Couldn’t agree more…

To be able to let go is to live life lightly.

What about you?

Do you have anything to add to this list

Art of Management

Part 2..


On Teams & Leadership

When teams align in purpose
Converging  energies by envisioning
Towards a a common mission.

Streamlining  the processes
Strengthening  the teams
With diversity &  inclusion

Acknowledge a natural fear that creeps in
With every  introduction or exit
Of a new or older member.

Allaying  their fears is allowing
Them to fuse and alloy together
In possibilities of their potential.

True mark  of leadership
Is in the evaluation and application
In guidance and course correcting

Leader paves the path ahead
Leading the way with trustfulness
Empathetic  of their vulnerabilities

Replacing fear with focus to forge ahead
Meeting doubts & insecurity with clarity
Taking decisions to ensure resolutions.

For Teams need empathy and respect
To survive the storms
Both in themselves  and their leader.

Dance of Nature


There is dance

In every leaf and flower

In every bud and bloom

In every twig and tree

In every turn and twist

Of nature’s creation.

There is the grace of uniqueness

Of wisdom beyond compare

All knowing, all pervading

To this Omnipresence …
I bow in Gratitude to this Grace.🙏

Finding Time

Ultimately it all about finding time

For a…

A little laughter to keep you light

A little kindness along the way

A little walk for your good health

A little whiff of fragrance divine

A little tune to hum through the day

A little step to carry it through

A little tap down the memory lane

All to align you to your happiest self

Simplify Life

Simple can be profoundly impactful


For in the very complexity of the matter


Resides clarity of the simplicity.


Simplifying the truth of purpose


In easily understandable ways.

Simplify thoughts, simplify life.:))

1500 WordPress Posts

WordPress says I have published 1500 posts!! Calls for a little celebration of this milestone and thankfulness in Gratitude  to you my dear readers in this journey together! 🙏😊

The Journey so far…
The simple act of writing a little everyday, penning down my thoughts and sharing with you all here, the time spent here, has been deeply rewarding in more ways than one. Yes, a moment of reckoning indeed of all those contemplative times.🙂

While some of you my readers have suggested me to focus on the monentary benefits of blogging, yet a few of you have appreciated my artworks and also suggested that I must compile a book in some of the kind comments you leave, which I will cherish for a lifetime. So thank you all for encouraging & supporting me right through…

As many of you my readers already know, I diligently practice writing a post every day for over three years now…

This is beautiful canvas space of expression for myself on all the little things that come my way and touch me one way or the other

The Vision Ahead …

I believe I am now ready to explore the idea of compiling a book of my writings. So I would truly love to hear from those of you who have walked the path of publishing your books.

Yes there is a lot of information on the internet about publishing, but I think to listen to you my readers, and hear your individual and unique wisdom garnered from your own experiences in publishing a book as a fellow writer would add a relevant perspective.

And secondly if you could share your thoughts of my writings, it would help in understanding more of what you envision of me as a writer.


Would you care to write and share about what are the steps to publish a book?
And as a reader if you have been following my posts here, what genre do you think my works could do well?
It would be really nice to learn from you all.
Do share your experiences, and leave tips for the road ahead in publishing a book if any.
It would be certainly be a step ahead.

Love it!

The vibrant energy of joyfulness creates a feeling of enthusiasm and wellbeing.

If we can bring it upon ourself to sense joy for what is, we will find it manifests where ever we are, in one way or the other, in more ways than one.

The ability to alter our attitude towards life is directly proportional to the way we experience life.

We are what we think and our behavior is influenced by our perceptions of life and living.

If we wish we can choose to change

The way of thinking and sensing

Life evolves for the better along the way .

Notice the Good

Sometimes the simple act of noticing  something  good  can make all the difference…

Trust there is always  more

Than what your eyes can see

In the sensing and the knowing

The yet undiscovered good manifests

Right before you for you to notice.

The way…

Love is the way

For all of us

As each of us matters

Somehow somewhere

We are all connected

In the infinite plan

And each of us

Needs to become responsible

To make a meaningful difference

For life to thrive than just survive

We need to be respectful

Towards each other

To gain the trust & faith

That makes the world

A better place to live in

For all of us

Love is the way

A Space of Calm Where the Soul Thrives.

Amidst the flurry of thoughts

There is a space in the sensing

That heals the hurt and embalms

The spirit of the soul

To recover and rejuvenate

In this invisible space is the secret

Of knowing there is always an answer

To every doubt and confusion

In this space is a silent knowing

Of serenity of wisdom

In hope beyond the reigning chaos

All things happen in good time

Is knowing the power of patience

And the strength of good faith.

There is every reason to believe

In this space, our soul thrives.

The Open Mind.

“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it isn’t open.” – Frank Zappa

You decide how much your mind is ready to receive.

Your mind is as open as you want it to be…
