Live Life Lovingly!


Simple truth.

There was a question asked to Ramana Maharishi
Question: What is the best way to treat others?
Ramana: There are no others.

This is the simple truth of life and living well.

If only we can see how we are but reflections of one another then a lot of discrimination will stop right then and there.

Discrimination is the root of conflict.

To think one life as above or below another creates inequalities in mutual treatment and socialization.

Remember to practice non discrimination in life and living.

Art of Management

Dancing and Management

What’s dancing got to do with management
Everything!
Oh she is a dance teacher!
What will she know about managing an office?
This is the common perception of people in Buisness setups. They have a dismissive attitude towards anyone who comes from a non aligned field like arts for example.

Having been a dance professional for more than two decades trains you into lot more than dancing. It opens you to pick up people skills culture and mindsets and attitudes that come along with the territory.
Besides there are common skills that go beyond Buisness management and enter life skills that one needs to navigate life effectively.
Here are a few skills that come to mind immediately…

  • Time Management
  • Code of conduct
  • Space management
  • Body language awareness
  • Self Expression
  • Discernment
  • Discipline and Focus
  • Alertness
  • Respect
  • Collaboration
  • Teamwork
  • Mindfulness
  • Authenticity
  • Precision
  • Adaptability
  • Planning
  • Creativity

Dancing movements can open channels of flow which translates into greater energy optimization.

And each dancer may have explored the art of dancing in different forms and its application would have the potential to create greater depth of understandings.

The value of art may be high but yet the possibilities and potential of the artistic is yet undervalued.

There is so much scope in the art of movement that we can realize. It’s high time to accept that dance education and application has much to offer the world beyond just a stage performance. Great to see radical shifts in the way dance is being perceived across certain parts of the world. But it has to percolate to where all it can matter.

Time to think beyond and open up to these yet underutilized but valuable life management skills.

Beyond Judgments


Art of living 




Truth is
Life thrives 
In nature

All we need to do
Is to not stunt
But let it bloom.

Only remember
To Nurture life
Move beyond judgements

Without  discrimination
What emerges will be
The truth of the being.

As it was
As it was
As it is
Meant to be!

Especially for you

I went to a hotel. After seeing the menu ordered some food .

After 20 minutes a group of youngsters around 10 people came n sat at the next table and ordered their food.

It arrived in a short while and they started eating speaking very loudly and shouting amongst themselves.

One of them noticed me and said ridiculousy that he is having good contacts in that hotel, hence food was served to them immediately and they need not wait like beggars .

I felt insulted and felt like cancelling my order. I called the waiter to do so.

The waiter told me quietly, sir ,your order is very special to us . So our chief chef is making it specially for you. Their order was prepared by our trainee chefs in a hurry as ur food is getting ready by our chief chef.

So I waited patiently for some more time.

In a short while 6 bearers brought special food which I never ordered and I was given royal treatment of very rich food. I was perplexed.

The hotel owner was my school friend . He saw me as I entered. He wanted to surprise me. He changed my simple meal to a rich one and instructed the kitchen to give me a royal treat before meeting me.

The group at the next table saw the service given to me and looked at me in wonderment.

That is life. Some will laugh at us pinpointing our inabilities and ridicule us showing off their wealth, power and happiness.

We may feel sad and disheartened thinking in spite of our hard work and sincerity we never get the breakthrough. Sometimes we get depressed so much that we start to think there is no meaning in this life.

Do not worry.
The owner of the world, the chief chef is preparing something specially for us. Hence He makes us wait as it takes time. His plan for is special and only He can plan it.

So we have to wait patiently, doing our duties, till his special menu is served to us. When it comes those who looked down at us and ridiculed will have no word to say.

Stay blessed and enjoy your day
Believe in God.
No one and nothing can prevent what is due to us . It will come at the right time as He has Planned.

A share translated by my mother from a Tamil story.


Passion Afire

Such a beautiful share…

Both the words and the vision

So beautifully in tune…

They speak so much with passion

Touching the core of the heart.

Indeed! What a conscious connection!

Seeing beyond

What makes the artist see beyond ?

What makes the perspectives alter?

What makes dimensions change?

What makes them emote through art?

Perhaps the gift of art is in keenness to see beyond the normal.

To focus on the minutest details that others miss

To envision the way things can seem

To visualize what is invisible.

Perhaps it is the ability to delve

Into the heart of the matter.

Or in the ability to appreciate the yet unknown.
