Step into your inner world

Step into your inner world

Do you feel your mind is racing
With your speed of thoughts
Beyond your comprehension
Then perhaps you can try
To change the flow.

It’s very effective.

Whenever you are overwhelmed
By your own thoughts
Go reverse instead of going with the flow.

Be mindful to ask
And search the root of thought.
Ask where is this thought coming from?
Ask why you having this thought?

The more you trace backwards
On the thought itself.
You will deepen the contemplation
Eventually you will find your answers.

When you are pushed beyond yourself
You need to find out the source
You will find your truths
Along the way!

The truth hurts and heals

Truth seeks out itself

Truth is able to enable

The seeker with reserve

To bear and see-through

The facades of illusions.

For truth knows itself

That it lies embedded

Enshrouded and embalmed

To reveal itself unscathed.

Truth cannot be restrained & shackled

In imagination and indecision.

Truth cannot be locked and chained

In the doubts of insecurities.

Truth is within & out there

The truth appears when it wants

To touch the core of the being.

Truth knows and understands.

Truth hurts and heals itself.

All of You!

‘Precious Soul’ Artwork by Savvy Raj

Your smile is your soul signature
Your voice is the vibration of your energy
Your speech is a channel of communication
Your intention is the story of your purpose.
Your eyes are the window of your soul
Your heart is the expression of your being
Your steps are the path you create
Your actions are the enabler of deeds
Your body is the lighthouse
Your spirit is light.

You are precious.

All of you!

WFH -The Global Shift

This Global Shift to Work From Home was meant to happen. The lockdown just hastened the process. With more and more work being computer-driven the approach to online meetings finding acceptance the shift was inevitable.

With increasing traffic and the associated fatigue, the rising costs of real estate, infrastructure, and equipment to maintain and sustain a physical office environment the Work From Home seems to be a more suitable effective and efficient alternative in the current scenario.

However, this will soon gain greater acceptance as employers will find although there are challenges people actually can be productive from wherever they are. And there are ways and tools as well to ensure it. So much system integration and analytics only show how it can turn the majority into adopting this method of employment. Unnecessary travel time and cost are saved, the energy can be utilized with resourcefulness.

Virtual meetings are adaptable and can even be recorded and replayed. So training modules can be conducted once and replayed.
As change is the need of the hour a series of altering and shifting of perspectives will be taking place simultaneously. In such difficult situations, we need to learn to be pliant to what’s required. Learning to be more collaborative cooperative and supportive to make the purpose worthwhile.

Virtual Work is the Future.

While this is an advantage for employees to be flexible with timing with greater time at disposal by cutting travel times and the need to get ready etc. It is also a possibility of radical shifts for Future entrepreneurs will have to learn from this experience and weigh the pros and cons carefully and cut unnecessary costs to be resourceful productive.

As for employees though the multidimensional dynamics of social interaction and sense of community in a physical office is lost, an online conversation is replete with its own tools to circumvent this.

However, with no face to face physical interaction, lesser office politics, and no watercooler gossips, it could certainly reduce the waste of unnecessary time and lead to greater efficiency.

Already with the drastic changes in the world economy and the predictions for challenging times ahead, it is time to find ways to reduce costs and increase online engagement which is already offering an array of productive resources and end to end collaborations that can change the way we work. It’s time to rethink and reinvent the way we work!

Its all connected!

It’s all connected!

So much vibrations in this now
That is was and will be playing
As the dance of light and frequency
In the eternal river of time.

Momentous fields of matter
Cosmic rhythms of color at play
Vivid manifestation of vastness
Of potential in the abundance

So much to understand & discover
The truth of the moment
Is connected to it all
Such is the truth of nature in sublimity.

Whose work is it anyway?

Bored?
What boredom, no time for boredom!
says my seemingly exasperated friend in India on the phone.
With the complete lockdown and most on’ Work from home status ‘majority of families are struggling to cope with rising demands of the family be it the seniors at home, children and of course pets as well. The families are now suddenly having no house help, the quintessence of urban class living.

Compared to the Western world in India still, the lure of cheaper labor force makes a household helper available to all. But in the current scare, there are no maids, let alone cooks or gardeners. Except for those who may have a live-in helper which is not often the case.

Suddenly the ‘Work from home’ status actually registers the truth. For it is truly challenging for most families who have never bothered to make their own bed or do dishes or cook ever. In fact, there are many who wait for someone else to make their tea or coffee or get a glass of water.

In these hard-pressed times the major part of the work comes to the women of the household still, in spite of all those talks of women’s liberation that goes on doing the rounds every year around early March.

To all the women, who have suddenly vowed to prove themselves superwoman please take it easy.
A little dirty corner, neglected kitchen shelves, not a four course meal, everything is acceptable. But not at the cost of your own health. Remember your falling sick at these times will be disastrous especially if there is no one to take over from you !!
Stay safe

The women are left with no options as the demands keep on rising as those who are at home are hungrier than ever with time to kill.

There are, of course, some of those evolved households where all are contributing their bit. The onus of responsibility needs to be shared, else it will make every day a living hell.

If only more young parents of today teach all their children both sons and daughters equally to cook, clean and do housework as a part of life skills training so that they also know how to manage a home when they have one, the lives of so many future families will be truly much easier.

As we see it, the future is here with new challenges and unless we are all equipped with basic survival skills and takes into account, ownership, responsibility, and teamwork and move beyond gender biases, it is truly tough to live through times like these.

How are you and your families managing this interim period?

Stay safe and healthy!

Power of Celestial Light

We are reborn every night

As the beam of sun shines upon us

Every day, we are restored with hope

And faith in the consistency.

Every night awakens to a new day

At the dawn of light

Darkness gives way even in the presence

Of a single ray of light.

Such is the power of light

To instill hope faith and trust

In the possibilities awaiting us.

To envision and uncover our undiscovered light.

To overcome the shadows

As they recede & fade away

For light makes the world more beautiful

As nature is all aglow, in its pristine glory.

So if you are feeling overshadowed in this now

Keep the faith, for your ray of light

Is just around the corner to meet you.

Keep the faith! You will step into the light!
