Dream on…

You may not get everything you dream about, but you will never get anything you don’t dream about.”
– William James

The Power of Your Dreams

Makes the subconscious

A conscious reality.

Dare to dream

Selflessly with all of you!

To create a life

Of beautiful moments!

Being all that you can be!

The way we begin to see the world

Our world shapes itself accordingly

Lets choose to be all that we can be

Cause we can be definitely more

Than what choose to believe…

Lets never feel…

Stuck in the moment

Let care to reach beyond knowing

To consciously expand and align

Our deepest intentions in goodwill.

Lets begin to see the good we have

As well as share that good with others…

Life will begin to become lighter

And we will get wings to fly!

Lets reach our dreams

And create some more…

Remember, all of this can be done

By nobody else but us!

Be all that you can be.

Breathe in Peace

You have it in you

The choice of what to do

You are your own master

You are capable to choose

What you want to do

You need to own who you are

Your passion, your purpose

Your life, your breath

Then you will breathe in peace

As you begin to own your own breath.

Art of Storytelling.

Stories telling is an art

Not just the story

But the way you say it

When you say it

How you say it

To whom and why

Stories have much depth

Than what’s apparent to us.

Here is one such story worth a study!😀

Enjoy the humour…

Finest example of presence of mind!.

A Professor started his class on a very serious Topic. The moment he turned towards the blackboard, one of the students whistled. He turned, looked at the class and asked the Whistler’s name. No one answered.

The Professor peacefully kept the Pen in his pocket saying: “Lecture ends here. I’ll tell you a story to utilise the remaining time”.

Everyone became interested.

“Yesterday night I tried hard to sleep, but it was miles away from my eyes, so I thought I’d better get petrol in my car, which will save my time next morning and might induce sleep. After having my tank full, I started roaming in that area, enjoying the peace of a traffic free ride.

Suddenly, on the corner I saw a girl who was as young and beautiful as the clothes she was wearing. Must have been returning from a party. Out of courtesy, I turned my car towards her and asked if I may be of any help. She asked me if I could drop her to her home, she’ll be very obliged, to which I agreed.

She sat in the front seat with me. We started talking, and to my amazement she was very intelligent, had control on many topics which many youngsters don’t.

When we reached her address, she admitted my courteous nature and behavior and accepted that she would love to meet again.

I also admitted her intelligence and beauty and that I’ve also started liking her. I told her about my job as a professor in the university.

The girl asked my number, which I gave her willingly. Then she asked me a favor, to which i couldn’t have denied naturally.

She said that her brother is a student in the same university, and asked me to take care of him, since we’ll meeting each other more now.

I asked the name of the student. She said that I’ll recognise him with one of his very prominent quality, *He whistles a lot!*

All eyes in the classroom turned towards the boy who had whistled.

The professor said: “I didn’t buy my Ph. D in Psychology.. I earned it”.

Beauty of innocence

Some Very Beautiful Examples of Innocence, which will touch your heart…

1. Author and lecturer, Leo Buscaglia, once talked about a contest he was asked to judge.
The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.
The winner was:

A four-year-old child, whose next door neighbour was an elderly gentleman, who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old man’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbour, the little boy just said: ‘Nothing, I just
helped him cry.’
👍👍

2. Students, of class one in a school, were discussing a student’s family picture. One little boy in the picture had a hair colour, different from the other family members.
One of the other students suggested that he was adopted.

A little girl said: ‘I know all about
adoption, bcoz I was adopted..’

‘What does it mean to be adopted ?’, asked another child.

‘It means’, said the girl, ‘that you grew in your mommy’s heart, instead of her tummy.!’
👍👍

3. Whenever I’m disappointed with my life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott.
Jamie was trying out for a part in the school play.
His mother told me that he’d set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen..

On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after school.
Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.. ‘Guess what, Mom,’ he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to me..: ‘I’ve been chosen to clap and cheer.’
👍👍

4. An eye witness account from New York City , on a cold day in December.
A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe store on the road, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering
with cold.

A lady approached the young boy and said: ‘My, but you’re in such deep thought staring in that window!’
The boy replied:’I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes.’

The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy.
She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel.
He quickly brought them to her.

She took the little fellow to the back
part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.

By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks.
Placing a pair upon the boy’s feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes..

She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said, ‘No doubt, you will be more comfortable now..’

As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking up into her face, with tears
in his eyes, asked her:

*’Are you God’s wife………?’*

Beyond the Illusions



What is, may not be
What you see, can be an illusion
The truth may be far from it.
All that you see, is not all.

What is all, is not what you see
Illusions of your mind can play tricks.
Beyond your preconceived beliefs
And judgments of perception.

There is a lot more than what we are
Our vision can play tricks.
So watch what you see, up close
And perhaps, you will see more…

On Happiness




A beautifully expressed sentiment.

Happiness is hard to find if you go searching  but if you choose to create a moment  of happiness for one another you have made the moment  happy.

Keep sharing & spreading happiness
Keep sensing the happiness in you.

Your Three Words

Your Three Words…

These last 3 days of sharing my artworks has been quite an enjoyable experience. It has opened up new vistas of thoughts in envisioning.

My Painting on Day 3 was titled :

The Spirit of Dance

Many of your Word interpretations were quite in synch with it.

Wanted to reflect the simple joy of dance movements in the freedom of being, each as unique as the dancer.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading and responding to each of your creative responses for all three of my artworks.🙏🏼

All of your words are truly incredible and so very imaginative.
Thank you so much for joining in this little experiment in creativity.
Hope to share more of my works and continue this series in the future.

Speaking about my artworks that I posted…
All these Artworks are my paintings from back in time that I happened to chance upon again. I wanted to see if they still meant the same to me in time. I then thought of sharing it in a post the way I did, just for the little collaborative creativity and joy in the sharing.

The multitude of meanings in it, for each of you and the interpretations put forth in the responses were truly each a journey in itself.
In these times of lockdowns the world has had time to pause and reflect and has perhaps chosen to engage with varied creative enrichments in much deeper and fulfilling ways.

Do let me know if you enjoyed playing along these last three days as much as I did.😇

Thank you all again for traveling alongside with me and my artworks for the last three days, as we mutually forged new paths of perceptions in the perspectives. 🙏🏼

A Message of Gratitude.

A Message of Gratitude.

5 years on Word press
A mighty task for me
To stay on, dedicated
To my writings.
But WordPress gives the canvas
To paint my words every day.
It encourages from the background.
Never in your face or intrusive.
But silently keeping tabs,
On every learning curve.
Rejoicing by a share
On every milestone
It has been a journey
Of many learnings
Along the way…

To my fellow writers & readers
Yes, I am no poet
Nor a writer by profession
I started on a lark
To dance with some words
To process my own thoughts
And give vent to my feelings
In a constructive and fulfilling way
And express I did
And continue to do, till date
With all my fellow writers
And readers, love, wishes & support.

We are an ever growing circle
Emerging through our words
In the sharing we have grown
We have eased into each other’s hearts
We may not see one another ever
But we have connected in mutual respect
Of each others creativity.
Though the power of words
Comforted and understood
Accepted and appreciated
One another in our own little ways.
For we all know the power of words
That, one heartfelt word can change a day!

Thank you all for being here and hoping for a joyful journey ahead together for us all.🙏🏼

Fun in the Pun

Came across this interesting forward… Sounds good for reflections at leisure.

When you have nothing better to do, just try answers for these!

1. If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?
🤔

2. Which letter is silent in the word “Scent,” the S or the C?
🤔

3. Do twins ever realize that one of them is unplanned?
🤔

4. Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn’t it be called double V?
🤔

5. Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you and It just takes 75-100 years to fully work.
🤔

6. Every time you clean something, you just make something else dirty.
🤔

7. The word “swims” upside-down is still “swims”
🤔

8. 100 years ago everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars. Today everyone has cars and only the rich own horses.
🤔

9. If you replace “W” with “T” in “What, Where and When”, you get the answer to each of them.
🤔

Great confusions still unresolved 😄😂

1. At a movie theatre, which armrest is yours?

2. If people evolve from monkeys, why are monkeys still around?

3. Why is there a ‘D’ in fridge,

but not in refrigerator?

4. Who knew what time it was when the first clock was made?

Vagaries of English Language! Enjoy!!!😀😀😀

– Wonder why the word funeral starts with FUN?

-Why isn’t a Fireman called a Water-man?

– How come Lipstick doesn’t do what it says?

– If money doesn’t grow on trees, how come Banks have Branches?

– If a Vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a Humanitarian eat?
