Soul speaks

Your soul speaks

To you in many ways

Call it intuition

Your second brain

Or your gut feeling

Source coder’s intelligence

Imprints in every cell

Of your being.

For your survival

You are born with it

Listen when it speaks

You can trust it.

Taking a decision

Decision is often the difference between greatness and mediocrity. In every man’s life there comes a time when he must search for a cause, a work, an ideal to which he can give himself. Whether he says ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the challenge will determine his future.”

Wilferd Peterson

Taking any difficult decision

Without sitting on the fence

Is not always easy

For it may take all of you

More than what you are ready to commit at times

And yet its liberating

Once you have a decision made

For there is clarity in thoughts

To set things in motion

Leading you to your purpose.

Life lessons

Another inspiring story translation from tamil forward by my mother Anjana.

A gardener one day saw a bird’s nest in his garden. Out of curiosity he peeped inside and saw a few eggs laid inside it.
Next day he was happy to see small tiny cracks on the eggshells. He realised th eggs are getting ready to hatch . His curiosity increased.
For the he next few days , every day he will see the how the eggs are and happy to see the cracks getting bigger. His expectations kept on increasing.
One day he saw the eggs moving and the little tiny birds were struggling inside to break open the wall and come out of their confined space .
He felt sad for the birds as they have to struggle so much. He wanted to help them . So he softly made the cracks big enough to make their work easy.
The next morning he went with lot of expectations to see the little birds out of the eggs without struggle. He was disappointed to see there was no change. It was same as he had kept the day before.
For the next couple of days it went on. The eggs remained the same . There was no movement. Then one day he was shocked to see lot of ants all over the eggs and found all the tiny birds dead inside.
His heart ached to see this . He was very sad. His friend who saw him asked the reason. When he told what had happened , his friend told, ” You are the reason for their death. Out of your love n expectation you killed them. “

“Me ? How?”
“Yes , only you are responsible.
When the little birds are ready to come out , their little wings and legs will move slowly giving it strength. It will break open the shell with the help of its beak n body. It is a natural process . If you had left it their way by now all the little ones must have come out and flew from their nest in a few days. A normal delivery would have happened.
The gardener was shattered when he realised his folly.
As parents we are doing the same to our children. We protect them with so much care and precautions to safe guard them from any pain or suffering.
We fail to make them know the value of sweat, the worth of labour and the struggling path to success. We want to give them all ready in a platter. Our mentality is’ I’ve suffered a lot. My children should not’.
We forget that our overprotective love will make them weak and some day when they face life with its realities , they will suffer.
Let us make them walk the path and watch them grow as individuals with inner strength. When needed be there to guide. How long can they walk catching your fingers. Let them walk alone. Let them fall and learn to rise on their own. Let them make their own path . Watch them from a distance. Applaud them.
This is not a bird’s story.
It is a life lesson for our children.

On Listening

To listen is to understand
Is a power of hearing well
The said and the unsaid

To listen is to remain quiet
To allow oneself  to hear
The voice of others than self

To listen is to develop patience
To be able to acknowledge
And understand the said

To listen  is an art to cultivate
Not easy always to curb speech
Listening leads to self control

To listen is not wait to speak
But to hear & understand
Care to listen or speak more?

A mark of good leadership
Good listening  is a great asset
Take time to listen more…

Asking & Giving

Beautiful thoughts

From an empathic mind.

That cares from the heart

Truly what use is giving

Without a need for the giving

As giving is a gift only

In the receiving

Else it’s just giving away

Without any takers

All is wasted.

So perhaps its alright to ask

Before you plan to give.

Nurture the now

Life gives life

Life takes life

Live heals life

Life hurts life

Life nurtures life

Life tortures life

Life can be powerful

Life can be powerless

At any one moment

Such is the truth of life

In the river of time

Youth ages in time

Life moves on

In every moment at hand

Realize the preciousness of now

Sense the bliss in the blessings

From hands that raise you

For time takes a toll

What was, is not going to be

What will be we do not know

What is now, make it matter

Practice gratitude

Practice appreciation

Practice thankfulness

In this now.

Just Breathe

Breathe deep in trust

Breathe well in faith

Breathe in peace

Let go uncertainty

Breathe in connectedness

Own your every breath

It’s yours to inhale & exhale.

Sense your breathe in balance

Reach out with confidence

Stay grounded in rootedness

In this now, witness

The present moment

For it makes all the difference

Just breathe…

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 …

On Engagement

Engagement is an involvement

It involves committment.

Engagement is an action

It involves doing, a deed

Engagement  is a focused interest

To do whatever is possible.

Engagement can be a moral obligation.

What are your daily engagements?

What keeps you engaged in them?

Sensing synergies

Creativity flourishes in moving beyond the box stepping out of the emerging collages in the interpretation, time and time again.

Every creative endeavour is rooted in a dance of the energy within and around us … the dynamics of integration embodies the creative output.

Titled: Interconnectedness

When we realise the Eternity of time in the Circle of Life we will be able to see beyond the illusory perceptions… And most of all accept and respect the significance of every being in the cosmos as they are…

Each of us here is divinely orchestrated towards the purpose of our being, strengthened by the Circle of Interconnects that run deeper than we can fathom …. we may not need all the answers that we seek but they are always there with us for us to understand.

If we must seek… Let us Seek Connectedness,

If we must awaken… Let us Awaken the Spirit of Being

If we must move, Let us Move with Empathy in Action

If we must choose Let us Choose the Simplicity of Authenticity

If we must rest… Let us Rest with Contentment

If we must pursue… Let us Pursue Thankfulness in Gratitude

If we must strive…Let us Strive for Patience and Tolerance

If we must fight… Let us Fight Apathy and Ignorance

If we must reach …Let us Reach out with Kindness

If we must become …Let us Become a Better version of Us!

Power of Realization

A share one morning from my friend Pamela De Luca got my attention.

Love the dedicated writing of Thich Nan Thich.

In the awakening to the truth of the being

There is an acknowledgement in gratefulness

As much as there is awe and wonder at the magnificence of creation itself.

Subtle becomes strength

Strength senses subtlety

As we swim through the tides of existence

We realize our strength is best in being one with the flow

As there is deepest connection

Such is the power in the realization.

On Gentleness

Words of wisdom from a gentle soul.

Nothing of this nature is our own

We cannot claim it as ours

As the world has existed beyond any of us

We come to this world for a while

We owe it more than we own it

Our deeds speak for themselves

And time tells the truth of living.

Our responsibility lies with ourselves

The way we choose to live every day

A little compassion in consciousness

A loving acknowledgement in awareness

For the burdens on mother nature

Goes a long long way

In sustaining the world we have.
