Crack of dawn

Where light shines forth
There is always a crack
That has given way
An opening  that allows…
Light to shine through.



From darkness of night
Emerges a new dawn
In hope and deliverance.
With potential & possibilities.
Sense the cracking of dawn.

Life and living

Life and Living soulful stories share that come my way…

John D Rockfeller was once the richest man in the world. The first billionaire in the world. By age 25, he controlled one of the largest oil refineries in the US. By age 31, he had become the world’s largest oil refiner. By age 38, he commanded 90% of the oil refined in the U.S.
By 50, he was the richest man in the country. As a young man, every decision, attitude, and relationship was tailored to create his personal power and wealth.

But at the age of 53, he became ill. His entire body became racked with pain and he lost all of his hair. In complete agony, the world’s only billionaire could buy anything he wanted, but he could only digest soup and crackers. An associate wrote, He could not sleep, would not smile and nothing in life meant anything to him. His personal, highly skilled physicians predicted he would die within a year. That year passed agonizingly slowly.

As he approached death he awoke one morning with the vague realisation of not being able to take any of his wealth with him into the next world. The man who could control the business world suddenly realized he was not in control of his own life. He was left with a choice.

He called his attorneys, accountants, and managers and announced that he wanted to channel his Assets to Hospitals, Research, and Charity work. John D. Rockefeller
established his Foundation. This new direction eventually led to the discovery of penicillin, cures for malaria, tuberculosis and diphtheria.But perhaps the most amazing part of Rockefeller’s story is that the moment he began to give back a portion of all that he had earned, his
body’s chemistry was altered so significantly that he got better. It looked as if he would die at 53 but he lived to be 98. Rockefeller learned gratitude and gave back the vast majority of his wealth. Doing so made him whole. It is one thing to be healed. It is another to be made whole.

Before his death, he wrote this in his dairy, “The Supreme Energy taught me, that everything belongs to Him and I am only a channel to comply his wishes. My life has been one long, happy holiday; Full of work and full of play I dropped the worry on the way and God was
good to me every day.”

A profound message in those words.

Life & Living Truths

Truths of life & living…

Take stock of strengths

Work in sustainable ways

Take stock of your weaknesses

And work to minimize them.

Acknowledge opportunities

And remember to be quick to respond

Watch out for threats

At every turn tread cautiously.

But above this all, focus

Where you know improvements are needed.

Keep this practise consistent…

And watch life turn around for you

Can you help the world thrive?

If you can help the world you influence thrive…

Then you are a true leader

In being a leader

There is an unspoken responsibility…

Of creating a space for growth & acknowledgement

Of ideas and explorations

Of possibilities in the potential

Of development of the individuals

Of nurturing the spirit in patience and strategy

Of accountability of the purpose.

Of ensuring discipline and compliances when needed

Of using appreciation as an evolved method of correction.

Of empathy in thoughts words & action for the followers.

When the leader practices

All of the above consistently in time

Then all the directive of such a leader

Gets understood and supported in kind by the followers

And that is when managing change becomes easier for the leader

For all begin to thrive in this way….

And thats when leadership becomes an art.

And life thrives.
