On Love & Inclusion

A poignant tale of a little child sensing the favoritism by her own father was shared by my friend Ali Anani in his post….

https://www.linkedin.com/posts/ali-anani-phd-15305319_love-experience-empathy-activity-6970262610063589376-9Fbe?utm_source=share&utm_medium=member_desktop

Here are my reflections on this post… which I had initially shared with him privately but then realized that perhaps it needs to be read and understood in the larger context of the trials and tribulations in life and living..

Truth has a way of baring open the wounds of the heart and mind on its path of healing the hurt.
For truth is on its own path of self correction in this world.
For unfairness and
Injustice has to somedayfind justice
Exclusion to inclusion
Doubts to clarity.

When truth speaks
In one way or another
It is important to listen
In empathy without judgements

Truth speaks as it is
In all of innocence
Or in wisdom of awareness.

And yet…
Innocence can be daunting  to handle . But addressing the truth one way or the other
Leads to discoveries of how little we know or of what is sensed & perceived.


In the story  that my friend shared…here are instances of lack of inclusion in a family

Where in one day there is marked difference in the way the father speaks,
When the child says
Why are you speaking to me…

Interesting to note that you perceived  the young child as witty
Whereas another may perceive  it as defiance,or even an evidence of an awareness of lack of inclusion and discrimination at this household in the young child’s mind.
And that she is voicing  it in all of innocence.

What would be of significance  is how the father addresses  this brewing disconnect.

Lack of love can be a difficult  phase at any age especially  for a child.
Let’s trust the universe to show the way for this child to receive what she is yearning for one way or another.
May every life be able to sense  love and live life lovingly.

On Humility

Humility is a conscious practice in awareness.
Until it becomes  a way of life.
In knowing  that there is always more
Than what the eyes  can see
Or the spirit can do


The soul knows
To reach beyond knowing
It is important  to acknowledge the space
To allow learning to take place
Humility  is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
A practice of  humility
In thoughts  words  & deeds,
In listening to understand,
In letting go in faith and fortitude,
In making way for gratitude
In being hopeful in trust
In moderation and measure
Can unlock the inner potential
For humility is full of possibilities.

Wisdom from Children

Question is then how to be enthused,
Into doing the same tasks differently?
And break free from rut of routine.
Yet make this day great!
Very simple…
Stay hopeful, see life’s potential
Create the possibilities
It’s all in the way of envisioning
How you want to build your life
It’s all up to you!

Patience waits…

Wisdom of Patience

Patience awaits
In faith and belief
Patience is understanding
For patience hones itself
For the suitable moments.

Patience is non-judgmental
Patience bears the burden
Of the moments
Knowing the power of time.
Patience is resilience in action
Patience is strength of the spirit
Patience speaks volumes of the soul
Without a word or deed.
Such is the wisdom of Patience

For much is resolved in patience.
A true Companion for Wisdom is Patience and a lot of life’s so called situations which need solutions can be resolved by thinking differently !

Ability to cultivate patience is an art…

To know all happens for a reason.

Thoughts Matter…

On thinking well

The way we think has much to do with the way we feel . In the interconnections and interlooping between the way we act and react and the way think feel ,there is much happening in our body mind and spirit.

We are unique in our thoughts as much as in the way we are nurtured and reared in life and living. Our experiences reflect in our ways of behaviour . Hence to impact any transformative change in our actions it is imperative to move beyond thoughts and feelings and try to understand our inner engineering and its significance in the stream of flow from reaction to response.


The energy within is dancing through every cell of our bodies . In sending and receiving impulses as signals of communication there are electrical mechanical and chemical changes occuring within us . The resultant reactions of our body is interconnected to whatever changes are occuring in our psyche and our overall health.

So to change the way we think and behave, we need to understand the interlink between our varied states of being in time.

Every conscious positive shift in our thoughts can help heal in a profound way.

Choose to think well.

On Optimism

Optimism

Musings on Positive Mindsetting and Optimism by my mother Anjana.

Love this piece by her.

Seeing the glass half full or half empty makes a lot of difference to your mind set. Positive thinking is not to ignore the negativities of
matters or situations. It is to see the options to overcome the obstacles in the best possible way. Seeing goodness and being positive reduces unnecessary stress and unwanted heaviness of heart. It lightens the mind, to a cheerful mood and to a healthy you.


Being positive does not erase the difficulties or seriousness of the problem. But when you look at the light out side the dark tunnel, finding ways to cross the darkness becomes easier. The severity of the dark cloud fades away when you have the bright Sun in your vision. A positive mind strengthens your will power to cope up in situations , reduces your stress level resulting in a healthier you, increases life span.


A positive mind can identify and filter the negative thoughts at its seed level and tries to steer away from it. Devoid of imaginary fears you can see problems at its reality with an optimistic mind. Approaching life, facing its realities with a positive attitude makes solutions easier. It gives you better resiliency over adversity, reduces depression, improves your immunity. When your mental strength is increased, it becomes easy to identify and manage challenges, to bring out best positive results.


A positive mind makes you more stronger, , more communicative, more people friendly, more humorous, & healthier. It makes you a better person to be with.
Always be positive, be happy, be healthy. Surround yourself with positive people.

Miracles

Whenever and wherever there is hope, faith and love… miracles happen.
In living life’s every moment
As if it’s a miracle in itself
Either there is a miracle for you
Waiting to happen
Or you are the miracle for another
Waiting to unfold
Both are inspiration for one or the other
For out of difficulties
Miracles are born!

Just be

Just be…
Witness the wisdom


In the stillness
Beneath the din 


In the silence
Betwixt the sound


In the spaces
Between  the moves
Just be

Who am I?

This is a different kind of post.

Have been writing and sharing my thoughts and reflections here on WordPress for many years now. Many of you have been with me in this journey off and on and some of you consistently so… and for both I am full of gratitude.

Through these poems and prose my life’s experiences and explorations have often been my muse in the musings.

Just wondering out loud how am I perceived through these words. And what do you sense of me intuitively?

Would you care to share?

It’s simply a self exploratory share to learn and understand some more and I sincerely hope to hear from you.

In return I too will try my best to share my understanding of you through your posts.

Could I know through this post how do you perceive me?

Who am I ?

On Children

A child can teach us to love life

A child can remind us to be present in this now.

Nurturing a child is a learning

In resilience and responsibility.

Of our strengths & vulnerability.

Children are our teachers of tommorow.

Unshackled Souls

Cage not the soul

Nor the spirit of life

For it is free from form

Travelling across time

Sensing the freedom

In every now

Is the way of spirit

And the wandering soul.

Sense The Significance

Says it all

You matter

But until you believe

In the powers within

You remain dormant

Existing but not alive

The strength of belief

In trustfulness and faith

Makes you persevere

In thoughts, words and deeds

With a passion and purpose

Impacting the world

In and around you.

Sense the significance.

Of every life.
