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.

On Success

You create the state of success
And you never rest on your success
Success is in the courage to continue
Your perseverance, your passion and purpose.
Success is consistently inconsiderate
Success demands much focus
as it supplies momentum
Beyond self limitations and doubts.
True success is the knowing
In your heart of contentment
Of a life well lived and loved.

Success is who you are
Success is in each of us
Awaiting a discovery
An unearthing of potential
To sense life’s possibilities
If you believe your abilities,
trust your instincts and
give it your best shot,
Success is sure to follow.

Don’t live because you are born, don’t go where life takes you . Make life come alive where you are…

Travel Diaries

Musings on a flight from France Amsterdam

Onwards and upwards

Here I am traveling light

With heartfelt gratitude

In the giving and receiving

Sight of fresh colors of flowers

In clothes people are wearing

Is a sea change from the mostly black monotones

Sensing summer vibes in the air.

Remembering the romance of Parisian bylines

Hope the time forward is full of hope and possibilities

Looking forward to new experiences …

Every country has a unique culture

Tuning in to the collective personas

Like tasting the wine in every sip

Travel can be a truly an immersive experience.

All it needs is a willingness to travel & adapt to the changing scenarios

And a spirit of tolerance as much as the love for freedom.

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.

Every one of us owes everyone of them so much.

Flow

To flow is to witness moments

Change in the river of time

To flow is to realise

That change is the only constant

To flow is to make space

For something new

Let go, to let flow happen

Let the blessings flow!

Just another day back in time.

Exactly eight years ago!

With love from Athens Greece … 🙂 At the World Dance Research Congress Greece UNESCO as a representative member from India 🙂
An example of Unity in Diversity…. Approximately 400 conferees from 40 countries of the 5 continents.!

Today in India, so glad to write this, the dance community that represents India internationally has grown from strength to strength … yet ‘Spot me’ if you can … I was the only woman representative from India at that time.

An amalgamation of such an association and the resulting experiences leaves one enriched for a life time. The practice resulting thereof in pursuit of excellence becomes important. In the awareness of the possibilities in dance applications on the human psyche and form, the responsibility of making a positive difference in your purpose is strengthened.

Power to more such immersive and experiential collaborations in the art of dance movements across the world. 🙏

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 ?

Travel on

If you are given an opportunity to take a journey

Take it, for you meet many versions of you.

Along the road.

Some you cherish, some cherish you.

Some that change you and some that you change.

Fear not the travel or the traveling…

For one thing is certain

You come away enriched and wiser in every journey.

Travel to liberate yourself
From self assumed notions
To see the light on the other side
There is much to unlearn and unbox
As you travel yield in to the insights
Travel every once in a while if opportunity arises,

Take the chance,
You are richer in your explorations much as your experiences.
Travel on …

Live and let live

Can you hold your breath,

Can you hold the moment …

You have to let both go in time

Nature is meant to be free

You are meant to flow

Sense your movements

Have a rhythm of its own

In this dance of life.

Witness and acknowledge

Life’s myriad expressions

Live and let live
