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!

Live Love Laugh!

In Laughter is the shedding

Of the spurious

A cleansing of the hearts

A bridging of joys in this now!

In laughter is the clearing

Of the burdens

A lightness of being

A healing of the spirits

For Laughter makes you sense

The happiness of this now!

Laugh a little more everyday!

Dedicated to Batchmates.

It doesn’t matter if its the Army Navy or Airforce once in the forces you are always ready with a Salute!

You can take a man out of the army

But can not take the army out of him!

Humour in Uniform indeed!

Sharing a fun forward that came my way!

One day a Colonel from the Army, fell into a well. The soldiers would throw a rope into the well and pull the Colonel out. The moment the Colonel would come up, the soldiers would leave the rope snap to attention and salute. The Colonel would fall back into the well. This happened many times.

Someone suggested that a Brigadier be requested for help-because HE wouldn’t have to salute the Colonel. So one Brigadier arrived. He threw the rope into the well and the Colonel grabbed it. The Brigadier began pulling the rope. As soon as the Colonel reached the top of the well, he spotted the Brigadier. He immediately left the rope and saluted. And he fell back once more, into the well.
There was total silence. Then everyone heard the desperate Colonel’s voice from down below
*”You idiots – get hold of a batch mate !!”*
MORAL OF THE STORY: Batchmates ARE important ! They can save your life!
(Dedicated to all batchmates)

Smile & the world smiles…

I particularly liked this quote I came across recently…

“Smile more than you cry, Give more than you take, and Love more than you Hate.”
– Drake

A beautiful way to be! Nicely summarized.

Will simply add…

In Laughter you nourish yourself

In Generosity you replenish your world .

In love you nurture, nature in and around you!

CIRLE OF CONNECTIONS

We are connected

In the Infinite tapestry

Of life and living.

As we dance with life in gratitude

We gradually, sense the strength

In the circle of conscious connections.

Create your life!

Life at times can be both wondrous and mundane.

The attitude we choose to wear over our senses decides if we wish to find the joy in the things we do .

And in the world that we sense around us, we create …

We become what we choose to see and be!

Have a wonderful day!

Learning from a free spirit



Today I write about my dear and very loving father…

Perhaps the most uncomplicated man.

A paragon of the free spiritedness of a child.

He has an uncanny ability to be happy like a child.

What he desires are little things like a child.

Yes, he knows how to get what he  desires

But the happiness he feels & expresses, in the most ordinary things

That is his blessing of simplicity.


Life can be an epitome of adventure and adaptability.

It can challenge you & test your resilience & reserves

But to be able to be in touch with the inner child in you.

No matter how  life takes its toll on you

Is the strength in the vulnerability.



I dedicate these musings today to my eternally ‘young at heart’ father.

For from him, I have imbibed many beautiful learnings
Will share three, especially relevant here…

  • To be able to find happiness in the ordinary things.
  • To be able to stay hopeful, light & positive, no matter the density in the moment.
  • To think well of all and make way for happy thoughts and share goodwill.

  • God Bless You Dad!

    Step into your harmonious self



    Nature of harmony is healing

    Soothing sounds of the gentle waves

    Ease the inner recesses of the mind

    Greenery growing in synchrony

    Inspite of the abandon of wilderness

    Calms the body and mind

    Refreshing smell of the first rain

    Is truly invigorating to the spirit

    All of nature when in balance

    Is a dance of Harmony

    Align to this harmony

    Sense the joy of the interconnection.

    Step into your harmonious self.

    Imagine

    What if?

    A place of stillness

    Columns of concrete

    Standing silent

    Affirming its presence…

    An artists work

    Of imagination

    Creativity is a flow

    Imagination transcends

    Artists beyond dimensions

    Illusions dances & shifts itself

    From real to surreal.

    Technology enhances imagination

    Giving wings to its flight

    Here I have simply used it

    To sense its effects by thinking

    What if?

    Which picture strikes you ?

    What are your thoughts on it?

    Imagination is full of possibilities.

    Please share…

    I just did.

    Here is the original picture I took in France and enhanced it digitally.

    The picture is of this uniquely interesting sculpture by Aurelie Nemours one of the emblematic figures of geometric abstract art..

    Situated in Rennes France these columns are called….The 21st Century Alignment. It is a monumental work: 72 gray granite columns, four meters and fifty high, arranged on a concrete rectangle and punctuated by the course of the sun.

    What looks like simple blocks of stones, is a modern contemporary art,
    they pay homage to the Carnac stones of Breton France the largest collection of megalithic stones erected by Pre-celtic people which are also said to have astronomical connections.

    Horizon Of Hope



    Every horizon once reached

    It reveals another

    Beckoning at a distance…

    Horizon is born of hope

    Of the beyond in this now.


    Horizon are meant to hope

    To aspire to reach beyond

    In the yonder across the horizon

    Where the sky converges…

    Is a matter of knowing

    There is always more

    Of natures grace.

    Such is the abundance

    Of unending hope.

    Simplicity of Complexity




    Creativity
    Is at its best
    In making sense
    Of the complexity.

    Think simple
    To create clarity.
    A countless ideas
    May arrive at once.
    Bounce them off.

    Let your thoughts
    Streamline itself
    In the flow
    Allow it to settle

    Then make a choice
    Pay attention
    Pick the ones
    That fits in

    Work on them
    To unclutter somemore
    Until it makes perfect sense.
    Simplicity is common sense.


    Simplicity  resides
    In the complexities

    Let your creativity
    Simplify life.

    In The Lightness of being.


    There are few gifts
    Of life in the living
    Like joy of laughter
    Like the happiness of smiles
    Like the sharing of loving kindness
    Like sensing of gratitude


    They add to your life
    They heal your being
    Body mind and Soul.
    The more you have it
    And live expressing it 
    The better the health of your heart.

    A good thought
    A good deed
    A good laugh
    And all is well
    In the lightness of being.

    Sensing my share of these gifts.
    Are you?

    I see

    A world beyond

    I see

    A borderless world
    Overflowing abundance
    In the kindness of being.
    Beyond assumptions
    Notions & judgments
    In fear and confusion
    Over man made division.
    The beauty of creation
    Survives the human frailties.

    The world without borders
    Is one of awe and intrigue
    Of the alluring mystic
    Of all pervading consciousness.

    Of manifestations beyond compare
    Of artistry beyond words
    All strewn for us to sense
    In the tapestry of life.

    Interweaved interconnects
    Unraveled in interdependence
    Such is the true nature of elements
    Of Creation at its best!
