All in good faith!

The power that creates

The omnipresence

Is all knowing consciousness

That is there to take care

All of creation

Cannot be without a reason

Trust the purpose

Keep the faith

Faith is all there is

Without faith nothing is

All Is A Matter Of Attitude

All is a matter of attitude

We create our lives in every now

As we choose to think and be

Our lifes moment aligns itself.

As each individual life begins to see

The value of self awareness and hopefulness.

Life evolves for one and all

Better communities to nations…

We as a world, are more powerful

Than what we choose to believe …

For we are our own changemakers

War or peace is a choice we have with us.

Are you your own friend?

A true friend is there to support you if you fall.

Allow space for you to grow

Cheer you along the way

Take interest in your journey

Mean well for you

Stop you from self harm

Believe in you without a doubt

Yet dare to tell the truth to you.

Be with you so you are never alone.

Now think about it…

Are you your own best friend ?

Crossing the Culture Threshold!



There is great power in words…
To  charm another,influence or drive a point home.

Engagement online can turn better on bitter in a split second.

It is all in the choice of words used to convey a message.
For there is much influence the words….such is the power of words.
 

Sometimes knowingly or otherwise  the way we express  or communicate   to another  by the words we may use may bring a chasm than  create a bridge.


Sometimes when we see another life, as beautiful and cant curb the need to express it away, we often get caught up in our own words and unknowingly end up …

Crossing the Culture Threshold!

What to one might be just a poetic expression

To another might be a glitch of discretion.

Express if one must

Feel free to feel the way you feel is the way to feel

But only as long as anothers peace you don’t unknowingly steal.

For at times in the surging words of emotion…

Arises unnecessary stress and discomfort.

Better to know the pause in the space between our steps

And value your edges in every move.

For in every positive step in discretion

There is simply the strength of trust without mention.

When I penned these lines they were specifically for driving the message home gently that no one can tread on another’s emotional space without permission especially online using the power and persuasion of words…


True respect for another being can simply be about letting others be.

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.
