Sensing the fragrance

Dinner under a lemon tree Capri

I saw this picture and paused…

For it spoke of abundance of being.

Of Sight, sense and smell.

Emoting in the sensing

Evoking in freshness of fragrance

Nature is abundance personified

Rewards aplenty, with fruits to share

The little joys of dining together

Socializing seem like a dream

With the world in its now from here.

Yet the picture paints cheer & hope.

Of giving and living generously.

Happiness is in the sensing

Have a wonderful weekend 😀

A deed in time

Any good deed in time

Leaves a heartprint forever

Planting is a thoughtful deed

Reaping a harvest of abundance

A seed to a bud, to beautiful blooms

Shade from the leaves & fruits to eat.

Every tree is a blessing of goodwill.

Time knows it all

And time shows it all at the right time.

Gratitude for the grace of goodwill.🙏

Colors of life

There is always a path meant for u

Explore the myriad colors of life

In all shades and hue…

What you choose to see

Is how it appears to be

Acknowledge the gifts of life

As they come to you in time.

For Colors make life come alive.

Irony of life

Came across this forward today….paints a very relevant picture of times we live in … do read.

Someone has nicely explained the irony in the present situation:

“ Never have I seen
such a mess in life.

The air is pure but
wearing a mask is
mandatory.

Roads are empty
but it is impossible
to go on long drive.

People have clean
hands but there is a
ban on shaking hands.

Friends have time to
sit together but they
cannot get together.

The cook inside you
is crazy, but you cannot
call anyone for lunch or
dinner.

Every Monday,
the heart longs to go out, but the weekend does not seem to end.

Those who have money
have no way to spend it.

Those who don’t have
money have no way to
earn it.

The culprit is all around
but cannot be seen.

A world full of irony!
Be positive but test negative.”

What is in my cup now?

If the cup of life you have in this now

Is filled with doubts and insecurities

Can you stir up some positive intent

Within the cup , adding awareness

Can u brim the cup with humanity

So that when it spilleth over

There is healing in hope

There is goodwill and grace

Allowing some space for reflection

To let peace in and let it flow….

On Gratitude

Life is a reflection of our way of living.

The attitudes, the thoughts we carry

The nature of our deeds

All is deeply significant to our states of being.

In depth of gratitude arises acknowledgement

Everything that is, has a reason

Nothing is accidental

In deep gratitude, there is clarity

Clearing the debris of uncertainty

Crystallizing the dimensions in-between

Every once in a while

Partaking in the profoundness of wisdom garnered

Beyond the apparitions

Illusions in the making

And the reality in the reflections

Flowing along in this river of time.

Celebrate Yourself

Happiness is a state of being

The simple act of acknowledgement

Even in our little wins…

With a heart felt smile , a self hug,

All can create a positive impact

On our state of being.

Remember to celebrate yourself

You can change the way you feel

Make yourself available to you

Your life is a precious gift

Acknowledge, & Celebrate yourself.

Let go… let flow…

For u may come and go

Through many lifecycles

To sense the truth of the being

Every life has a reason to be

Unshackle the bounds of being.

And bond beyond the bounding.

Evolve to Dissolve, Disolve to evolve

Such is the dance of the spirit & soul

To become nothing and be everything….

Let go, let flow

Be present in the journey

Of many lifetimes

Until your delve into the purpose

Of life and living

So let go let flow …

To just be…

You have the answers

To every question that arises

To every puzzle that confronts you.

Know you are entrusted with answers…

Deeply embedded with in you.

Simply trust in the knowing

It will deliver you the way.

The pathways will reveal itself

All in the right time and place.

All you need is trust in yourself …

And the courage to follow through.

But remember you have all the answers.

Together we stand

This lovely picture above by award winning photographer, Steve McCurry, of National Geographic fame, tells a story. Steve was passing through the Rajasthan, India desert by taxi, when he was caught in a furious dust storm. This is when he spotted a group of women in a huddle trying to brave its fury. The only way they could protect themselves was by taking support of one another. It had not rained in the region for 13 years and a dust storm like this forebode coming rains. While life hung precariously in this devastating storm, together they not only could fight it, but even sang happily on the prospect of possible rains. What better metaphor to show that women have the inherent strength and resilience to literally brave any storm and also at the same time rejoice on the positive side of even the most hostile situation. Together we stand. .. !!!

I came across this striking picture and story on Social Media and I just felt like sharing this today.

All A Matter Of Attitude

Positives in Negatives

A young woman was sitting at her dining table, worried about taxes to be paid, house-work to be done and to top it all, her extended family was coming over for festival lunch the next day. She was not feeling very thankful at that time.
As she turned her gaze sideways, she noticed her young daughter scribbling furiously into her notebook.
“My teacher asked us to write a paragraph on “Negative Thanks giving” for homework today,” said the daughter.
“She asked us to write down things that we are thankful for, things that make us feel not so good in the beginning, but turn out to be good after all.”
With curiosity, the mother peeked into the book. This is what her daughter wrote:
“I’m thankful for Final Exams, because that means school is almost over.
I’m thankful for bad-tasting medicine, because it helps me feel better.
I’m thankful for waking up to alarm clocks, because it means I’m still alive.”

It then dawned on the mother, that she had a lot of things to be thankful for!
She thought again…
She had to pay taxes but that meant she was fortunate to be employed.
She had house-work to do but that meant she had a shelter to live in.
She had to cook for her many family members for lunch but that meant she had a family with whom she could celebrate.

We generally complain about the negative things in life but we fail to look at the positive side of it.
Yes there is a positive in every negative .
What is the positive in your negatives? Look at the better part of life today and make everyday a great day.

Good Day 🌻
Be safe😷

Wisdom of Being

So much wisdom in these two lines.

Speaking and listening is an elegant dance of words

As you hear more you are learning

And as you speak you are expressing

The power of what mere words can do

At the right time said in the right tone

To the right audience in all its simplicity of delivery

As much as in the profoundness of understanding

Taking time to understand

What matters before you speak

Taking time to know whom to say what

All is a dance, in the wisdom in the being

Live life lovingly!

Do you need something to happen

To be happy?

Does someone have to make you smile?

Do you need something to be done by another to feel joyous

Do you want others to impress upon you for you to be cheerful?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions …

Do you care to motivate another to be happy?

How many times have you smiled for another?

Motivation to be happy works best when its intrinsic.

Yes you have this life you are living

Make sure to make your moments happy 😊

Yes everyday is different

Life is not perhaps easy for any of us.

Sometimes the night is long

And light shines a little later than you may want it to

But know there is always a day after the night…

And light is meant to shine on your path once again.

Be happy with yourself first!

For your happiness is all around you!

Trust yourself and your life to live!

And live life lovingly!

The Way

Trust the self …it knows the way!

Our body is intelligence personified

Every cell of our being holds the truth of our existence

Our every move is deeply interconnected and entwined with our emotions

We are how we feel and sense.

We are sensitive beyond compare in the subtlety of being

We are strong beyond compare to dare the toughest of challenges

Life and living makes and breaks us

But we are meant to survive…

We are born with intuitive intelligence

Designed to be our internal guide

In every moment that we live.

We have a sense of knowing

Beyond all logic and reasoning

It is speaking to us every time

It lights your heart with joy

It signals you when there is a doubt

Trust it, sense it in all it subtlety

It is talking to us…let’s begin to listen in,

For it shows the way…

Boundless bond

On the brink…

The world is going through a severe crisis
Anyone could be the next victim of the virus
It knows not man made differences
Of caste color creed race or religion.

The edge of reason

This is a time of uncertainty
Relationships old and new are on trial being tested in every way.
The need of the hour is to exercise caution, care, and spread hope and positivity
Yet there is still hatred, excess self indulgences all across the world.
There is still emotional mental and physical abuse in relationships…

Caught in the knot…

Caught in the knot is often the feeling for many
Where there is no trustful bond but just a feeling of being bound.

But yet tomorrow is another day…

Boundless bond…

May the love we have surmount the hate
May the good prevail over evil
May the light shine over the darkness of the mind
May we stay healthy and happy in our every now.
May we understand the power of words and spread them with care.

Soulful sensing…

What we have today we must cherish…

For a tomorrow that we build with love

For when we begin to see with our souls…

Our perceptions can alter, re-creating bonds beyond feeling bound.
