Your life your choice.

Life is awaiting your awareness

To realize the power of your potential.

Its all in the way you choose to live.

To let go & dare to dance the skies

To take the chance on the rapids

To walk along witnessing the flow

To sit by the shores sensing it all…

The choice rests with you…

Every moment is what you make of it

Your life your way!

Value of Values

A beautiful story share that tugs your heartstrings.

Remember Kenyan runner Abel Mutai who was just a few feet from the finish line, but became confused with the signage and stopped, thinking he had completed the race. Spanish runner, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was happening, started shouting at the Kenyan to continue running. Mutai didn’t know Spanish and didn’t understand. Realizing what was taking place, Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory.

A journalist asked Ivan, “Why did you do that?” Ivan replied, “My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life where we push and help each other to win.”
The journalist insisted “But why did you let the Kenyan win?” Ivan replied, “I didn’t let him win, he was going to win. The race was his.” The journalist insisted, and again asked, “But you could have won!” Ivan looked at him and replied, “But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honor in that medal?
What would my Mother think of that?”

Values are passed on from generation to generation.

WAVES OF CHANGES

In deepest turmoil

In utter confusion

Comes a breakthrough

Paving a new beginning.

Question is how patient are we?

To be ready to wait

To be tested time and time again

And how perseverant are we?

To know the rising waves are transient

All is a matter of time

Through the darkness shines a light

Rays of hope, happen to arrive.

Traveling along…

Sharing a story that came my way on Social Media.

I am Travelling with you !

Every year Parents took their son to his Grandmother’s House for the Summer Break, and they would return Home in train after Two Weeks.

One Day the Boy tells
his Parents:
′′ I’m Grown Up now,
What if I go to Grandma’s House alone this Year ???”

After a Brief Discussion
Parents agree.

They were standing on the Railway Station, seeing him off,
Giving him Last Instruction through the Window,

As Boy continues to repeat:
′′ I know, you’ve already told me so many times…!”
Train is about to leave and Father whispers:
′ My Son,
If you suddenly feel Bad or Scared, this is for you !…… ′
And he slips something into his Pocket.

Now the Boy was all alone, sitting on the Train, without his Parents,
for the First Time…

He looks at the Scenery through the Window.
Around him Strangers Hustle, make Noise, Enter and Exit
the Compartment,
He gets that Feeling that he was alone..
A person even gives him a
Scary look…
The Boy felt uncomfortable…
And now he was frightened also.
He lowered his head, snuggled in a corner of the Seat,
tears rose to his Eyes.

At that Point he remembered his Father putting something in his pocket.
With a trembling hand he groped this piece of paper, and he opened it,
Son, “Don’t Worry,”
I am in the Next Compartment…

*Truth* :

This is How it is in Life…
When God has sent us in this World, all by ourselves,
HE has also slipped a note in our pocket,

*God Says:*
I am Travelling with you,
I am within your reach !
Call on Me…❗

One World

The world is beyond what we assume

There are no labels on earth

There are no maps drawn

All that we believe is what we have created for ourselves

We may have different names

We may create different countries

We may call ourselves citizens of one land

But earth knows or cares not of your distinctions of race gender or creed

It knows not rich or poor

Nature knows not class or caste

Wonder what are we so set about ?

What makes us so full of opinions?

In fact if we only could see and a acknowledge

The earth in all its beauty

There are different seasons in different places

Yet our world is not about differences

For under the sky and sun

We are one, life is vulnerable and beautiful in all its unique ways.

When we care to see diversity as a strength

We would be more caring of our mother earth.

And we would see our earth as one and only world we have.

An Expression Of Manifestation.

Image credits: Fb Group Unique Trees

Saw this photo on a Fb group share and I couldn’t help pause and wonder about this expression in manifestation.

How beautifully it has orchestrated its creation

How artfully the artistry of photography has captured this brilliance of creation.

Every where we see nature emotes in magnificent awe-inspiring ways, the wonders of creation… in the trees, be it in a little leaf , a bud, in aging bark & trunk of trees , in the cloud paintings up above in the canvas of the sky or even in the dance of the waves in the sea…🙏

One moment to the next

To stay centered in equanimity

Is to be aware of the self in this now

Are we present in the moment?

Are we staying calm to understand

Change is the only constant…

The so called high tides, give in only to recede in time.

The dunes speak of sifting sands of time

Where there were mountains there are plains today…

What seems impossible becomes possible in time.

All is meant to move on

Problems well they come and go

Nothing lasts forever

That is why life is so precious

And every moment must be well lived.

From one moment to next!

Waking Up To A New Day!

We are the thoughts we think,

We become believers of our ways

What we do today has always a reason.

But every dawn is full of hope

Awaken to sense its brightness

Care and accept the vividity

Allow space for light to enter.

Much changes in doing the above..

Wake up grateful for this new day!

Wake up hopeful of this new day!

Work from home

Should the Corporates Invade our Homes…?

A youngster was attending a video conference with his Manager who was upset over the background noises. The Youngster turned around and told his grandmother to keep quiet.

She walked towards the youngster, to take a look into what he was doing and saw a person on the Monitor and asked, “Who is he?”

The youngster muted his audio and video and said, “He is my Manager”.

She said, “I want to talk to your Manager”. But the youngster denied. By the time the Manager started pinging the youngster and the youngster unmuted to talk and his grandmother shouted, “Manager I want to talk to you”.

The Manager agreed and the youngster unmuted the video. The grandmother, with a smile said, “Namaste” and introduced herself and the Manager also greeted her.

She said, “You look upset”.

The Manager said, “Yeah, some kind of work tension, a lot of noise around your house and we are not able to complete the meeting in time”.

The Grand Mother asked, “May I help solve your problem?”

Her grandson was stopping her and telling her to keep quiet.

The Manager said, “It’s ok, let her speak”.

The Grandmother narrated, “Once there was a Young man, who sat under a tree for taking rest. He was continuously hearing a bird’s sound. He lifted his head and seeing a bird, started chasing it, so that he could peacefully take some rest. The bird came closer to him and said, “You are taking rest under my nest. I will not ask you to leave this place but you should learn to co-exist with us”.

The Grandmother looked at both of them and said, “Your Home is your nest” where you are supposed to take rest and bond with your dear and near ones. I do understand the Covid-19 situation, but you should also understand that our home is not your office.

*When we come to visit our family members at your office place, we are expected to behave professionally or maintain a certain decorum.*

Similarly, when you are using our home for your office work, you should understand the situation at our home.

There is nothing wrong with working from home, but remember, it is the family members benevolent nature, that is keeping the corporate world functioning today and the economy running.

She looked at the manager and asked, “Am I correct ?”

*The Manager’s mother peeped and said “You are absolutely right”.*

Words of wisdom

The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.

The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding.

The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm nor the voice that echoes it.

And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither.

For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man. And even as each one of you stands alone in God’s knowledge, so must each one of you be alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth.

Kahlil Gibran…

One of my favorite writers with profound words of wisdom.

I had been introduced to his books as a teenager but have revisited his works especially ‘ The Prophet ‘ many times just to soak in the learnings.

Learning is best done in willingness & curiosity to explore the beyond.

Teaching is best done in understanding the learnings and the learner.

Learning never stops it is like a river that flows…

The teacher creates curiosity for learning takes you to the river banks of knowledge and then allows you to quench your thirst, assimilate the learning to expand your horizons of learning.

Learnings in Life.

I loved these lines …

On learning in life.

Life is blessed

In valuing the gifts we have,

In cultivation of skills we are enriched

And life is transformed in the choices we make.

Life is full of infinite learnings

Endless opportunities and possibilities …

Life is how we make it!

Cultivate space…

As we cultivate a space

Within and around us

To listen and observe

To understand and care.

We access the underlying wisdom

As we allow ourselves to notice

The ways of life and living

We come across fresh perspectives

When we allow ourselves to hear

The sounds of silence

We sense our feelings

We accept our emotions

And likewise..

We tune inwards a little more

In this conscious awareness

We practice…

To tap into our intuitive intelligence

In every cell of our being

Speaking through our senses.

To access the powers within.

All we need is to cultivate space.
