Igniting Thoughts, Sparking Imagination

A thought is a full circle 
From synapse to the sensing 
It travels beyond spaces and back 
Symbol of life in the buzzing.

In the circle of life and living
Arises sparks of thinking in the sensing
Many thoughts may come and go,
Sometimes structured & logical,
At times they disappear in a moment
Yet some thoughts  leave imprints in time.

As thoughts keep on arising
These dots of thoughts shape into patterns
Emitting in the strength of momentum
To countless circles of thoughts in the propelling.

Think well Imagine the good!

The Journey of Imagination

Imagination begins with thoughts
There is great power in imagination
Imagination can heal or hurt
Stemming from infinite abundance.
Imagination draws from nature & nurture.

In thinking out  of the box
Raw & unstructured or uncontrollable
Resulting  in unexpected creativity
Exploring  potential possibilities.
Thoughts in a flow forming patterns
Shapes moulding within a structure Meandering like a river 
Or bursting like a volcano
Uncontrollable & quite unexpectedly
Often chaotic and welling up the feelings.
Imagination seeks to find its own path Much of imagination is forgotten soon
Or gets lost in translation.

When imagination  is reinforced
In strength of inate potential of being
There is hope for inspirational  creativity
When imagination is reigned
In fear and ridicule
There is chance of darkness  of morbidity
Creating doubts and uncertainties.

Your Imagination is who you are
Imagination manifests through you
Yet in steering imagination
Creativity is born.
The source of thoughts arise from within
You have the choice to steer the course
In mindfulness the path of imagination
Can be witnessed and channeled.

The journey  of imagination
Take you places you have never been.

Betwixt & beyond the illusions &reality Through dimensions of time & space
To the quantum truths of your being
In expressing, exchanging imagination..
Innovations are possible.
The magic is all in the imagination 
What matters is where you want to go!

Art of Management

Part 2..


On Teams & Leadership

When teams align in purpose
Converging  energies by envisioning
Towards a a common mission.

Streamlining  the processes
Strengthening  the teams
With diversity &  inclusion

Acknowledge a natural fear that creeps in
With every  introduction or exit
Of a new or older member.

Allaying  their fears is allowing
Them to fuse and alloy together
In possibilities of their potential.

True mark  of leadership
Is in the evaluation and application
In guidance and course correcting

Leader paves the path ahead
Leading the way with trustfulness
Empathetic  of their vulnerabilities

Replacing fear with focus to forge ahead
Meeting doubts & insecurity with clarity
Taking decisions to ensure resolutions.

For Teams need empathy and respect
To survive the storms
Both in themselves  and their leader.

Illusory Perceptions

Power of suggestions

Shapes our perceptions

Perspectives are formed

Associations are conjured

What is , is not all.

Such is the illusions in the perceptions

Self belief

Power of positive belief

Self belief and self confidence has a way of showing  up …beyond ourselves
In the way we treat others around us
The way we take time out to ensure
That they are cared for and understood
The way we trust ourselves  to do much more…
Self belief  makes us, own the space we occupy…
And makes us shine the light on others  and yet shine our own brilliance.

The Gifts

In giving is a grace of hopefulness

In receiving is a respect in Gratitude.

In giving is a trust in abundance

In receiving is an acknowledgement.

Every giving and every receiving is a gift of life.

Both are beautiful beyond compare in the grace of the action and response.


To be able to give without wanting
To be able receive without  greed
Makes these gifts meaningful.


Grateful for these gifts of life.

A reason to be

A short post and photograph caught my eye and I was drawn to pen a few words.
https://wp.me/p7CppQ-Cc
Thank you Mark Bierman for the wonderful  inspiration.

Life is what we see and make of it.

Life creates something out of nothing

And everything out of something.

The illusions in the envisioning


Are but reflections in the making


Of what is visible, so as to matter


To the purpose of the life within.

Charlie or you or me are as visible


As the sun, the sea or the stars


Partially seen and understood


In the giant plan

Each have an untold story


Each matter in their own way


Each have a reason to be


To each their own.

Spools from Spills

Some positive takes in an accidental spill…

To keep calm and address the lesson in the spill.

To turnover a spill to evolve for better
To sense a pattern of possibilities in a spill.

To challenge the statuesque through a spill.

To test skillsets learned from a spill
To move beyond in a dare with a spill

To spill some more and align the pattern formations

To envision hope beyond the accidental spill.

To create artworks from the potential in a spillover

To empathize with the spiller across the learning curve…

Spills become art and art spills over.

Self Acceptance

In a world  battling for itself

It is time to let oneself be as is

Accepting and acknowledging

The  vulnerability of life

As foibles of life and living

It is not a time to be over demanding

Striving for over perfection

To the tipping  point .

For the challenges of this now

Far outweigh the craze for perfection

Time to be less hard on yourself

And others around  you

And be more grateful 🙏

Gratitude changes perspectives.

Making life a little more bearable

And a lot less complicated.

Inspirations

A person never is bored when he or she is creating something,expressing oneself. Through art forms, painting, singing, writing,and whatever that connects deeply to oneself.

And thats the beautiful part, where one art inspires another as much as the self to explore more.

To each his own way

A Chinese business man was thinking whom to hand over his business out of his 3 sons. He thought of a way to find their talent.
He told his sons he, who sells more combs to the buddhist monastery will be the one who will head his business.
Initially the sons were perplexed how to sell combs to the monks who do not grow hair.
After the specific time given to them, father called his sons to know about their achievements.
First one told I sold 2 combs.
How asked the father.
I told them the comb can be used to scratch their backs. 2 monks bought it.

Well. What about you , father asked the next one.
I sold 10 combs.
How asked the surprised father.
I told the monastery. that the people visit with dishevelled hair because of the strong winds on the way which is a disrespect to lord Buddha. If they keep a mirror & some combs at the entrance it will help people. They agreed & bought 10 combs.
The merchant praised his son .

Third son said I sold 1000 combs. The merchant was in awe.
I went to the head monk n told since they receive a lot of donations, it would be a nice gesture, if they give something like a blessing to the donors.
What can we give asked the head monk.
I showed him the combs with Buddha’s sayings inscribed on it & said since they use comb everyday it will be a reminder of teachings every time they use. . He agreed & ordered for 1000 combs with Buddha’s teachings inscribed.

No need to guess who took over the business from father.

All will think it is impossible to sell combs to the monks.

In life also we may face certain impossible situations . If we become disheartened then it means we have accepted defeat.

The 3 sons showed us 3 different ways of thinking.

First one thought what other way the comb can be used n sold 2.

Second one thought who other than the monks can use the comb n thought of the visitors . He was able to sell 10.

But it was a one time sale n no further sale in these lines will work out.

The third son also thought on same lines like the second, but with a difference. He modified the product as a gift wiith Buddha’s blessings to the donors. With the increase of donors , his sale will also increase.

So never accept defeat or think that coming out of difficult situations is impossible, start thinking differently. Expand ur vision from different angles.
Think to bring some small changes which will bring great results.

No one to buy tomatoes, dumped in garbage.
No price for cabbage. Used as manure in fields
Bananas , radish thrown on the streets .
We read many such news.

The knowledge we have in farming, we don’t have in business. Pickles, chips, jam dried vegetables, so many other ways to make them profitable. Instead of throwing or wasting, think what else use it can be put into. Learn to approach the correct persons. , through co operative farming or combined business.

Learn to change impossible situations to positive opportunities.

With patience , faith, hardwork n vigour if u start working , the impossible situation will become the foundation for a future big success.

Never bow down to initial negativities or accept defeat.

Expand your vision & focus.

Live with hope & positivity.

(Translated from a Tamil forward by my mother Anjana.)

You have the answers

To every question that arises

To every puzzle that confronts you.

Know you are entrusted with answers…

Deeply embedded with in you.

Simply trust in the knowing

It will deliver you the way.

The pathways will reveal itself

All in the right time and place.

All you need is trust in yourself …

And the courage to follow through.

But remember you have all the answers.

Reaching beyond …

Often the difference

Between mediocrity

And excellence

Is in the ability

In reaching beyond

To go the extra mile

For a cause, a passion

In dedicated perseverance

Towards a larger purpose

That is where life feels most alive.

Your life your choice.

Life is awaiting your awareness

To realize the power of your potential.

Its all in the way you choose to live.

To let go & dare to dance the skies

To take the chance on the rapids

To walk along witnessing the flow

To sit by the shores sensing it all…

The choice rests with you…

Every moment is what you make of it

Your life your way!
