Sensing Life

Sensing Life

Is a beautiful blessing or a beast of burden
It is sensed differently by each of us
For it challenges the best of us
Bringing out the best and worst in us.
Yet life is a journey that much be lived
To make sense of it, in every moment.
You cannot know of life without living it
Every now is a journey of sensing it.

Roots

To root is a sense of steadiness

Than simply belonging


Valuing the ancestry

Of your connectedness.

As much as the connectedness

Of your ancestry.

Respect your family bonds

Wherever you are or may be

Respect your roots.

A Matter Of Inclusiveness

Such a beautiful and inspiring share.

Yesterday I happened  to read this share on social  media. And I truly  appreciate  the  mindset of these two beautiful people.
One who believes learning has no age or defined boundaries And goes on to prove it by completing her graduation.

Another who values the needs and heartfelt intentions of another and is accepting and inclusive enough to have no place for  insecurities of any kind to seep in, while helping her accomplish her goals.


It’s truly fascinating  to read this. And I do know the journey must have been one of those rare kinds as well as challenging on many fronts for both of them.
It’s truly not often that you witness such beautiful endeavors.

And speaking candidly…
How many daughters  would actually  want their mothers in college with them?
How many will be happy to accompany  their mothers every day while in college?

How many mothers would have the thirst for knowledge and the passion, patience  and perseverance needed to do something  about it to such a degree?


Salute to both these spirited souls.
For sharing their learning journey. And showing  age is just a number and inclusion  is a matter of an expansive heart.❤

Art of Shoshin

Art of Shoshin

Helps in honing the ability

To see the world with fresh eyes

Staying curious in awe and wonder

Letting  go of unnecessary perceptions

That can cloud the clarity.

When you choose

An open mind

Without assumptions

And pre conceived notions

Without pride or prejudice

No matter who you are

What you have,

Or how much you know…

You are present

You are receptive

And welcoming of perspectives

To explore infinite possibilities

Of the potential now.

On Empathy

Life Skills: Empathy Education


Life with all its complexities and contrasts creates a necessity to chalk out ways to make young impressionable minds better equipped to handle its exigencies. Holistic education is so much about grounding in connectedness as much as it is about intuitive understanding that, harmony in the mind body connection is a way of life and living.

An education in empathic behavior becomes paramount in a materialistic world. A lot of misconception about empathy needs clarification.

Empathy is seeing with another, listening to another acknowledging them as they are, in a nonjudgmental space and being with another sensing the feelings and caring to reach out with support through words action and deeds …

Empathy can be sensed in a touch a nod or a smile or in the simplicity of silence, doing nothing but just being there ….

Empathy is a sharing, a feeling, a bonding, a being, a seeing, a sensing, a trusting and believing in hope, in faith, in life and grace.

Empathy is about caring, as a way of being. Empathy is not always about bearing the suffering and sensing another’s pain or being in a state of sorrow or pain. There can arise great empathy when dancing together or in a classroom environment where the teacher feels one with the student’s frame of mind and speaks to address that … or hearing or performing a song or play together with unbridled sense of bonding and enthusiasm. This empathy can be reflected time and time again in striving to consciously stay aware of the mutually creative fulfillment it brings to our lives. Positive benefits of empathy can become a mirror to gradually inducing greater empathic behavior in our lives towards ourselves and others.

Our movements have the power to change our moods, as much as our thoughts can bring a change in our way of being. It doesn’t matter who believes in your empathic way of life, what matters is you believe in it yourself. And that is the first step in making a positive difference. When there is an empathy in action, it is mirrored in our minds to create, generate loving and caring thoughts as a response to the action.

Every empathic thought finds its way into expression thoughts words or deeds creatively. With increasing empathic thought and action there is unknowingly a connectedness, valuing the interdependence in this web of life and living as a way of being.

On Giving

Give with all of your heart 

 whenever and wherever you can 

Because you truly can.

Receive by expressing the value 

In  heartfelt appreciation

 of what you have got 

Because it truly matters.

 For then in the giving and receiving 

 Is established a full circle 

of a contented connection.

And that will pave the path of grace

For more to follow along.

When you give heartfully, forget about it.When you receive gratefully, remember it.  Savvy


Give generously without any expectation.

Receive generously in true appreciation.

Both are the core of human nature in action.

And all is well in the circle of interconnection.

Heart of Peace

Cultivating inner peace

Begins with the awareness

Of your own breath

Just for a moment

Take a pause and reflect

On the inhaled breath

You cannot hold it much longer

You have to let it go

Likewise to this

Think of all the conflicts

Of the storms raging within you

Think of burdens weighing you down

How long do you choose to carry them.

You have to let it go, one day or another

Why not now, and live free

Sensing the lightness of being.

You have One life one heart.

Choose to live life with heartfelt peace.

All is well.

We are living  in a world  rushed for time. People hurry and scurry through the day.

What we see in others is a part of us too reflected through them, when we are accepting of that part and able to respect it just as much as ourselves , we create all that we need to see at that moment .

Some very basic humane abilities are necessary in our journey in life.

To listen to understand, to connect, to acknowledge, to emphasize, to sense gratitude, to share happiness, and care for another as much as for ourselves.

Much of the world’s issues may find solace & resolutions in simply caring  to be present in the moment.

In these abilities lies the truth of nature in its magnanimity and abundance in every moment.

And All is truly well.

Take what you need!

Take what you need…

Love and hope to bridge the divide
Faith and patience to move beyond
Courage and understanding to dare
Peace and passion to create some more
Healing and strength to help yourself
Beauty and freedom to enjoy this now!
Take what you need
But always remember…
Wiser to take that which we feel we really need this moment and maintain the state of positive abundance for others too.
After all there is so much good within all already!
So simply take what you really need.
