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.

Perspectives

A BEAUTIFUL WAY OF LOOKING AT THINGS:

A Father was reading a magazine and his little daughter every now and then distracted him. To keep her busy, he tore one page on which was printed the map of the world. He tore it into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.
He was sure she would take the whole day to get it done. But the little one came back within minutes with perfect map……When he asked how she could do it so quickly, she said, “Oh…. Dad, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper….. I made the face perfect to get the map right.” She ran outside to play leaving the father surprised.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
There is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world. Whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, look at the other side…. You will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem.

In every moment that moves into the other
Care to keep the cheer and flow in faith seamlessly.”

Life & Living

Agatha Christie

My friend Laura Bailey from Linked In shared this post in dedication to the memory of Agatha Christie on her birthday. 15 th September.

During my schooling years I had been introduced to her novels and have been an avid reader of her works.

But I never had a face to the name until I saw this post. When I saw her in this post share here are my musings…

They say eyes are a window to the soul

I see a depth of wisdom

In her eyes, of many lives lived

Of experiences in the sharings

There is myriad mysteries

Yet untold and withheld.

The face contours speaks to me

Of a life of reservation

And perhaps some restraints

Yet the eyes conjure up the creativity

Of an insightful nature

That envisions the beyond.

The places & people

Of a knowing beyond this lifetime

So much a face can mirror!

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.

The Beginners Mindset

Begin the day

With enthusiasm for learning

And hope to discover some more

Unlock the possibilities

Of your mind

Adapt your ways

To learn from the challenges

Experience the world

Be open to perspectives

Learn and reflect

Give generously

Share to learn some more.

That way you create space

For you to grow

Reaction & Response

In a world too busy to care,

Too hurried and impatient

All must happen fast

Every thing must move quickly

Speed is a part of life

And life is lived on the fast lanes

However hurried reaction

Is considered unwise

Compared to the calmness of response.

Yet the truth is …

Between the active and passive


Exists a space to balance


Between reaction to response


Exists a pause for reflection

With reference to the choice of voice


Both have significance of their own


In the right situations & context


That can make all the difference.

Thinking well.

Your thoughts matter

Every one of them.

What consumes your mind

Controls you

Master your mind

Than let your mind master you.

Think well!

The Best of You

The way you live this now you have

Is beyond how life treats you

Trust the possibilities in this now

Let go of the unnecessary doubts

Trust in your reason to be

Trust your intentions keep the faith

Life is a reflection of perceptions

And self beliefs manifests hope within.

Keep being the best version of you

Because you truly can!

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.
