Think well

Sharinge my earlier post again for this new year as it is deeply meaningful excercise in Gratitude and Positivity to me.

The Gift of Life …

“When I was a little girl I often have witnessed my dear father see and give great value and acknowledge every little good that is or happens , however small they may seem to others . It could be a with a gentle word , a tiny appreciation or a little compliment. He taught me one of most important lesson for a lifetime ….to notice, respect and reflect on the good in and around us … and to live positively and think of life always as Plus++++es .

Life is beautiful as it is and it is in us to see it so …”

Power of Great Intentions

In a world so self obsessed

In a world so often neglected

In a world where time is always priced.

In a world where love comes with clauses

In a world of vulnerability of human frailties

It is so very important to awaken

In hope of transcending

With possibilities of good intentions

A prayer in hope of health and peace for the good of all!

Learning from Children

Taking things easy…

The day we learn to be light and live in lightness and not take things so seriously, we start truly living.

After all the sun will rise and set in its own course, life will flow in the river of time, why not think of living it cruising along knowing nothing lasts forever.

Whenever life feels a little too weary..

Know tomorrow is another day

And there is always a sun awaiting to shine…

The fault in our…

We often complicate things which are actually very simple.

Perhaps the idea of simplicity is embedded in the complexities

Our ways of life and living often weighs us down in density.

The simple life is seen to be difficult to sustain

We are drawn to searching for more ways of entrapment of our senses

That our views have become colored in the distractions.

The simple truths are submerged in the illusory facades.

Our perception changes with our attitude

The way we see things changes the way things are.

Magic of Christmas

Christmas Memories

Vibrant hues of Christmas Colors in all its vividity!

Joyful Christmas Memories indeed! Sharing the cheer and goodwill…

The Antwerpen Christmas Market is spread out over several streets and squares lighting up the entire historical centre of Antwerp beautifully into a huge and happening zone to stroll around in…Glowing in the night!
Beating the winters chill
Sitting by warm fire pits…
Sipping hot glühwein!And the mistletoe?
Well its no small branch
But a giant one indeed!
Fit for all the crowd that gather under
Just to share the Christmas cheer!

On learning

True learning happens when we realize we are the teacher and we are the student.

And life teaches the greatest lessons without anyone uttering a word or at times, in just the sheer presence of a good soul.

In every path is a learning awaiting an awakening in the acknowledgement.

Learning is never limited

It is endless and ever regenerating itself.

A Grateful Heart

Its good to never let the things you want ,

Make you forget the things you have.

How about Practicing Gratitude as a way of being.

Making it a daily habit and a part of life and living.🙏

Power of Ripples

On Kindness



A ripple of kindness goes a long long way….


One little  movement from the heart
One tiny step to help
One single act in compassion
One bit of genuine care

Have the propensity to travel far
And influence many to kind deeds.
That await  for a sign somewhere
Remember the power of the ripples.

The Paradox of Awareness

Awareness is unique in each of us.
In Awareness there is an expansion
Of horizons of understanding
Of potential possibilities.

Yet Awareness is also about subtlety
Of understanding & of approach .
Of what is beyond bounds
An ability to keenly discern
What is better left unsaid.

Paradoxical truth of awareness…
Awareness is both the reason
For the light of wisdom
And the despair of knowing.

Awareness raises the bar
Of comprehension by nature.
Whats important is not tilting
The balance by ones own doing.

When awareness makes us most vulnerable

To commit the very error

That we may learn to steer away from.

Such is the Paradox of Awareness.

You decide.

Living well is a choice you make!

Live vibrantly without uncertainty

Take the step to make a choice

With all your heart and mind.

If you don’t take your decisions

Some one else will.

Better you make it a point

To trust your decisions

And keep the faith.

More you will live without fear

Its your life after all!

Begin to love life.

And live life lovingly!

Imprints

Every thought

Every word

Every deed

Has potential

To impact consciousness

To shift and alter lives

There is an imprint somewhere

That creates a change

Within us and around us.

All is a matter

Of awareness of the imprints.

Other side of Darknesss is Light

Darkness and Light are part of the same universe.
They come and go as if on contract
Light appears when the night unveils itself
Night appears when the light is overshadowed by the dark.

But in utter darkness comes the necessity of light
In burning light of the sun arises the need for cooling shade.
Both are cyclical in nature
Each a playing their part in the circle of life.

Dances of the world : Argentine Tango

Dancing is the ultimate art of expression of the spirit of life. Every part of the world has a unique set of dances that set it apart yet find some similarities somewhere. And that’s what is the strength of the creative art of movements, in the interconnects of community, culture , history, traditions as well as a reflection of the expression of changing times in the Dance Connection, and that is what beautiful about ‘Dance’ itself.

On the occasion of International Tango Day on 11 th December…

As a Celebration of Tango Dancers across the world …Sharing a few verses on Tango with a beautiful Tango Watch “Andrea Vighi y Chiara Benati – Milonga para as Missoes”

Tango

Born in the dark alleys of Argentina

The stark truth emerges of murky beginnings in the 18th century

Frequented mostly by slaves, immigrants in the ports of Buneos Aires and even Uruguay.

There were even bans on many of these tango musical gatherings.

The dance form began with countless influences of European and native culture.

Watch

Argentine Tango is both energetic and enigmatic

It has the strength and soul to show.

Equally exotic and evocative

Intriguing and beguiling

The lead and follow is beyond genders

For connection is beyond the physicality

For beside the passion play plain to see,

There is something quite alluring & attractive in the movements.

Two people apparently moving as one

The footwork entices and enthralls

The feet move with a mind all their own

But articulating a drama through the feet.

Watch

Slow, steady or sharp and staccato movements

Each pair of feet, teasing the other

Challenging into a seemingly deadly duel of the feet.

Hitting all the right notes

Never missing a beat

Never stepping unto another

Except for a flip a dip or a show stopping lift thrown in.

If you want to see the drama of life and living,

Watch the synergy of energy playing

In a soulful yet spirited tango of two dancers.

There is rivetting romance,

Yet strikingly serious and sombre in notion.

Depths of emotion & unbridled passion

Emanating in an artistry of motion.

Today there are so many versions of the Tango

Off shoots and diverse cultural interpretations.

That created new interpretations of the way the dance is danced.

In hold, in form, in stance and in steps. That it’s almost untraceable.

Tango today is alluring as ever with dark days remaining just a history.

Yet retaining the mystery and appeal, Captivating with its intensity.

The connects so rooted in the embrace and hold, that makes the fancy footwork so effortless.

Tango truly speaks eloquently more than ever before…
