A prayer is a bow of acceptance.
A prayer is a joyous amalgamation to the divine within.
There is always a reason
For things as they are
For people to be who they are
For time to be as is
So dont worry!
Just be happy…
You become what you consistently think about.
Would you agree?
From since I can remember I have been fascinated by movement and dance. With its power and applications in grace and dignity.
I had no plans to become a dance educator but decades into dance and training here I am still thinking and writing and dancing whenever I can.
Yes, you may have many other professional careers and experiences in varied fields but the things you are deeply passionate about, you become and becomes you.
Be it any form of art of science or anything in between yet unnamed…
You draw energy and purpose from it…
You feed from the very energy in reference and reflection.
You transform yourself and your environment with the very same energy within in enthusiasm as you come from heartfelt abundance.
A poignant tale of a little child sensing the favoritism by her own father was shared by my friend Ali Anani in his post….
Here are my reflections on this post… which I had initially shared with him privately but then realized that perhaps it needs to be read and understood in the larger context of the trials and tribulations in life and living..
Truth has a way of baring open the wounds of the heart and mind on its path of healing the hurt.
For truth is on its own path of self correction in this world.
For unfairness and
Injustice has to somedayfind justice
Exclusion to inclusion
Doubts to clarity.
When truth speaks
In one way or another
It is important to listen
In empathy without judgements
Truth speaks as it is
In all of innocence
Or in wisdom of awareness.
Innocence can be daunting to handle . But addressing the truth one way or the other
Leads to discoveries of how little we know or of what is sensed & perceived.
In the story that my friend shared…here are instances of lack of inclusion in a family
Where in one day there is marked difference in the way the father speaks,
When the child says
Why are you speaking to me…
Interesting to note that you perceived the young child as witty
Whereas another may perceive it as defiance,or even an evidence of an awareness of lack of inclusion and discrimination at this household in the young child’s mind.
And that she is voicing it in all of innocence.
What would be of significance is how the father addresses this brewing disconnect.
Lack of love can be a difficult phase at any age especially for a child.
Let’s trust the universe to show the way for this child to receive what she is yearning for one way or another.
May every life be able to sense love and live life lovingly.
Words have immense significance.
In the way we think speak, in the tonality, the choice of our words, we are influencing how we come across in every communication.
I know everything -Ego
You don’t really matter so you are not worthy of my time & attention – Indifference/ Disrespect/Seclusion
How can you come in my way?
Stay silent and speak only when I tell you to.- Control
Who are you to advise me? -Pride
How dare you speak this way?
If we only knew
The preciousness of life
We will begin to realize
How much of life is wasted
In arrogance and egotism.
In anger and doubt
Over things that hardly matter
In the larger plan of life
Can we choose to value
The preciousness of being
Place value for life over things.
This world is getting indifferent
Discarding truths nonchalantly
For it is difficult to swallow
But truth is truth
It finds its way ultimately
To make all the difference.
The soul knows the truths…
Yet the spirit is untamed.
To understand the wisdom.
It is important to create space
To allow learning to take place.
Humility is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
Invoking wisdom in humility
Humility is a conscious practice in awareness.
Until it becomes a way of life.
In knowing that there is always more
Than what the eyes can see
Or the spirit can do
The soul knows
To reach beyond knowing
It is important to acknowledge the space
To allow learning to take place
Humility is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
A practice of humility
In thoughts words & deeds,
In listening to understand,
In letting go in faith and fortitude,
In making way for gratitude
In being hopeful in trust
In moderation and measure
Can unlock the inner potential
For humility is full of possibilities.
Question is then how to be enthused,
Into doing the same tasks differently?
And break free from rut of routine.
Yet make this day great!
Stay hopeful, see life’s potential
Create the possibilities
It’s all in the way of envisioning
How you want to build your life
It’s all up to you!
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…
Wisdom of Patience
In faith and belief
Patience is understanding
For patience hones itself
For the suitable moments.
Patience is non-judgmental
Patience bears the burden
Of the moments
Knowing the power of time.
Patience is resilience in action
Patience is strength of the spirit
Patience speaks volumes of the soul
Without a word or deed.
Such is the wisdom of Patience
For much is resolved in patience.
A true Companion for Wisdom is Patience and a lot of life’s so called situations which need solutions can be resolved by thinking differently !
Ability to cultivate patience is an art…
To know all happens for a reason.
To think happy
Create some space in you
Allow happy thoughts in
Think well to feel happy
Inside out…and outside in
Reach out with good intentions
Wellness is a work in progress
Be well and be happy 😊
A child has the propensity
To connect the distant dots
In encouragement and support
A child’s curiousity is sparked
To embrace the yet known .
Children are creative innately and their childish curiosity often opens up the spaces yet unexplained and quite unexpectedly so.
Speaking of a child’s imagination and an adult’s ability to retain a childlike mindset, it boosts the creative thinking with fresh and unbiased perspectives. Much is in the way we perceive the arising patterns.
Complex problems are also known to be solved with this kind of approach. In the very ability to allow the self to let go, one’s vision broadens.
Old school methods of education often restricted the divergent expansion of creativity so as to structure its flow to converge in rigidity. But applying this agile & flexible approach can be an enriching experience for the mind and body.
In allowing ourselves spaces for our thoughts to self pattern in free play, acknowledging open-ended questions, of what if, how, why so and dare to dream fearlessly, andwonder, we might discover a pattern that connects the unfamiliar or yet seemingly distant dots.
A child like enthusiasm
Awe and wonder
Curiosity coupled with imagination
That knows no bounds
Could perhaps be a great creative approach
To solve complex problems.
For ultimately it is a matter of connecting the dots.
Your dreams holds the key to your purpose …dare to live it !
Yet often dreams hold a vision
To some part of your life
Dreams speak to you
When you least expect it to
Do you have dreams that are vivid
That you just can’t forget
Maybe there is a reason
For it to be so , perhaps there is a learning
For you to understand more.
Have you had times where dreams have conveyed the truths which you perhaps know but have not acknowledged.
Dreams interpretation has more to say beyond the obvious.
Yet personally I have found my own interpretation for some of my vivid dreams
An in the knowing is the healing.
Musings on Positive Mindsetting and Optimism by my mother Anjana.
Love this piece by her.
Seeing the glass half full or half empty makes a lot of difference to your mind set. Positive thinking is not to ignore the negativities of
matters or situations. It is to see the options to overcome the obstacles in the best possible way. Seeing goodness and being positive reduces unnecessary stress and unwanted heaviness of heart. It lightens the mind, to a cheerful mood and to a healthy you.
Being positive does not erase the difficulties or seriousness of the problem. But when you look at the light out side the dark tunnel, finding ways to cross the darkness becomes easier. The severity of the dark cloud fades away when you have the bright Sun in your vision. A positive mind strengthens your will power to cope up in situations , reduces your stress level resulting in a healthier you, increases life span.
A positive mind can identify and filter the negative thoughts at its seed level and tries to steer away from it. Devoid of imaginary fears you can see problems at its reality with an optimistic mind. Approaching life, facing its realities with a positive attitude makes solutions easier. It gives you better resiliency over adversity, reduces depression, improves your immunity. When your mental strength is increased, it becomes easy to identify and manage challenges, to bring out best positive results.
A positive mind makes you more stronger, , more communicative, more people friendly, more humorous, & healthier. It makes you a better person to be with.
Always be positive, be happy, be healthy. Surround yourself with positive people.
