On Trustfulness

Between belief and trust
There is a fine line
That makes all the difference
For to believe, is one thing
But to trust, is to let go.

In this trustfulness
Is where all the magic happens
And where the wonder comes alive
And beliefs finds meaning

In the ability to trust
Comes along the surrender
And the ability to accept the let go
In knowing there is always hope.

To trust, is to know there is
Always Something more
Than you or I
That will have our back

In complete trust
Life manifests and flourishes
Beyond the niggling doubts
And the unfounded insecurities

Trust is power that creates possibilities
So important to trust and be trustworthy.
Trust and allow yourself to realize its potential.
To acknowledge trust, is a step ahead in faith.

Garden of life

The heart feels

The mind thinks

And generates a seed of thought

But the heart is all encompassing

In the core of the heart

Is the garden of life.

The heart is all pervasive

The heart is willingness

It accepts the seeds of thoughts

It colours it with emotion

Sometimes in all its vividity

In the brightest of tints

Or at times in shadowing tones

Between the dark and light of life

The heart nurtures and nourishes

Thoughts seeds to life.

In positively enriching thoughts

It empowers life to evolve .

What truly matters is..

To plant a positive seed in your heart

Allow the mind to help the heart

Discard the unwanted,

Weed out the unnecessary

Trim the excess growth

Support the saplings of goodwill

Balancing between the heart & mind

Every moment of awareness

Can change the course of life!

On Acceptance

The Road to Acceptance has many challenges in the learnings… not often easy, but certainly transforming in one way or the other.

Like there are many aspects to understanding
In acceptance there are many perspectives
Acceptance is not giving up or being in the same place.
To me a practice of acceptance is an ability to respect the now and in turn acknowledge the transient nature of everything.
To accept then is to be able to have a feel or a vision of the situation as it is experienced in the now.

The Paradox of acceptance is being defenseless to yin and yangs of life and living. Yet to envision that acceptance comes from a place of strength, is to be able to understand that we are not one entity but made of many parts that matter to the whole.
So the stance of acceptance is about flow & movements in the stillness , in hope to evolve in time along with the changes.

Revolve & evolve

The world may seem to revolve around you
But you revolve along with the world.
So to be in balance is to take a hold
Of the space you are in
To find your bearing, before you react.
To optimize your response
Begin to understand and discern
Where another is in space, in thoughts
In actions and deeds.

To listen actively
To empathize with their needs and wants…
To be able to see the ‘Us beyond the I’
To shift the ‘Me to the We’

This is what will truly help
Us to understand where we are.
Life is like that,
Its meant to evolve and grow
Along in the flow!

Dancing Lights!

I was a little kid when I first came across this beautiful word Aurora …and then I read about the Polar Lights and was truly fascinated.
Back then I read as much as I could find in books before the age of the internet.

For many of us so far away from the poles this is often impossible to imagine beyond a blue sky… let alone the dancing lights.

Resharing this poem which is a dedication to Nature’s dance in the sky… all in the depth of my awe & fascination.

Spectre of brilliance
An opera in the sky
A dance of dazzling lights
Of colours flashing through.

Luminescent beyond compare
Magical spectacle of brilliance in the flow
An undulating waltz in the yonder
An unveiling of earth’s myriad wonders.

Such an ethereal vision
Mystical northern lights
Unbelievable, unforgettable
Awesomeness beyond mere words.

Waltz of the lights

Waltz of lights on the water….

Down the memory lane

A boat, a river, and I.

A canal trip on the River Reie

Beautiful Bruges at night

Shimmering lights

Dancing on water

Ever so gently

Creating a moment

Worth a capture!

Signs

There are signs that seem to appear

Out of nowhere

That make us hope, have faith

That help retain our trust

That shows the way

In our darkest hours.

There is a communion

Of our senses with our soul

A beautiful serendipitous wave

That washes through us

To bring clarity along the way.

The truth is always with you…

Guiding us to believe

To see the bigger picture.

To know nothing is accidental

There is always something more.

Live Love Laugh!

In Laughter is the shedding

Of the spurious

A cleansing of the hearts

A bridging of joys in this now!

In laughter is the clearing

Of the burdens

A lightness of being

A healing of the spirits

For Laughter makes you sense

The happiness of this now!

Laugh a little more everyday!

Random Gift Of Kindness

This post I came across gives hope in a world that is feeling unbalanced.

In every transaction there is possibility

Of shifting and altering towards goodwill.

Gestures of goodwill change the world to a better place

Random Kindness without expectations…

Helps sow seeds of hope in the heart of man.

Keep gratitude in your heart

Keep being kind! 🙏

Happy Festivities

Happy Diwali to all here.
Sharing a few musings from my mother.



Tamaso ma Jyothirgamaya.

On this Diwali let us
Illuminate our hearts.
Ignorance n impediments
Vanish in that brilliance.

Let Faith, prayer, compassion
And humility fill the place
While false beliefs, prejudices
Hatred & anger
Dissolve without a trace.

Past year has taught us
Many lessons.
Many have learnt
The real values our lives need.


A disciplined lifestyle
With resilience will take us far.
The core values our ancestors had
Are not mere lessons in vain.
They are real essence of health
With gratitude, embracing all.

Time to rectify our deeds
Done in the quest to excel.
Mother Nature knows well
How to balance & dwell.
Let’s co-exist without harming,
Valuing all lives, be it in any form.

Let this Festival of Lights
Bring harmony & happiness.
Together we will protect
This precious divine gift
Undoing all our wrongs
Restoring what truly belongs.

A Very Happy Deepawali
To all of you,
Be safe and healthy.
Stay blessed ever.

As we celebrate this beautiful festival of lights lets all take some time to connect with the cosmic lights and feel its blessed presence within us all 🙂
