On Empathy

Life Skills: Empathy Education


Life with all its complexities and contrasts creates a necessity to chalk out ways to make young impressionable minds better equipped to handle its exigencies. Holistic education is so much about grounding in connectedness as much as it is about intuitive understanding that, harmony in the mind body connection is a way of life and living.

An education in empathic behavior becomes paramount in a materialistic world. A lot of misconception about empathy needs clarification.

Empathy is seeing with another, listening to another acknowledging them as they are, in a nonjudgmental space and being with another sensing the feelings and caring to reach out with support through words action and deeds …

Empathy can be sensed in a touch a nod or a smile or in the simplicity of silence, doing nothing but just being there ….

Empathy is a sharing, a feeling, a bonding, a being, a seeing, a sensing, a trusting and believing in hope, in faith, in life and grace.

Empathy is about caring, as a way of being. Empathy is not always about bearing the suffering and sensing another’s pain or being in a state of sorrow or pain. There can arise great empathy when dancing together or in a classroom environment where the teacher feels one with the student’s frame of mind and speaks to address that … or hearing or performing a song or play together with unbridled sense of bonding and enthusiasm. This empathy can be reflected time and time again in striving to consciously stay aware of the mutually creative fulfillment it brings to our lives. Positive benefits of empathy can become a mirror to gradually inducing greater empathic behavior in our lives towards ourselves and others.

Our movements have the power to change our moods, as much as our thoughts can bring a change in our way of being. It doesn’t matter who believes in your empathic way of life, what matters is you believe in it yourself. And that is the first step in making a positive difference. When there is an empathy in action, it is mirrored in our minds to create, generate loving and caring thoughts as a response to the action.

Every empathic thought finds its way into expression thoughts words or deeds creatively. With increasing empathic thought and action there is unknowingly a connectedness, valuing the interdependence in this web of life and living as a way of being.

Reduce Recycle Reuse

The three R’s – reduce, reuse and recycle – all help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away. They conserve natural resources, landfill space and energy. Plus, the three R’s save land and money communities must use to dispose of waste in landfills”

Positive change begins with us.

Every living being is making a difference to the environment in every moment. The question is how and in what way can it become sustainable.

With melting ice-caps, the collapse of vegetation and wildlife, and violent surges of hurricanes droughts and frequent wildfires are all concerns for our world.

And there is really not much difference in the apathy that is happening in the name of sustaining the future… only much similarity in the situation of corruption and deceit through politics of governing people whatever the part of the world we are living in.

Sustaining the world is each of our responsibility as we think of ways to nurture the earth and nourish souls.

It is time to take it upon ourselves to make a positive difference from wherever we are.

Reduce reuse and recycle … every tiny effort makes a better world!

Creative possibilities

The words below are a testament of our limitless possibilities of thoughts occurring in the flow.

Each stanza is simply my comment for a comment to my post

But interestingly they combined in the creative possibilities.

Infinite is the potential in the possibilities.
And possibilities, to be explored
Are awaiting our awarenes
To be expansive and inclusive
To be acknowledged and accepting .
To reach beyond the dimensions
Of the known to the unknown…


So much creativity in  possibilities 
After all Creativity is a spiritual journey
In surrender to the unknown
In acceptance of inspiration
Invoke the divinity in the flow.

All is well.

We are living  in a world  rushed for time. People hurry and scurry through the day.

What we see in others is a part of us too reflected through them, when we are accepting of that part and able to respect it just as much as ourselves , we create all that we need to see at that moment .

Some very basic humane abilities are necessary in our journey in life.

To listen to understand, to connect, to acknowledge, to emphasize, to sense gratitude, to share happiness, and care for another as much as for ourselves.

Much of the world’s issues may find solace & resolutions in simply caring  to be present in the moment.

In these abilities lies the truth of nature in its magnanimity and abundance in every moment.

And All is truly well.

Do you agree?

The first step

Often taken in blind faith

In love and expectations

To experience lifes best moments

With or without a backstep

With or without fear and doubt

On some corner of the mind & heart

Yet a step ahead in time

Makes all the difference

Between thinking and doing

For action speaks louder than words.

Serenity of Wisdom

In being conscious of the peace

Available in this now

Awareness improves .

In being conscious of our decisions

Available to us as choices

Awareness improves

In being true to one self

In acceptance and acknowledgement

Of the uncertainties of life itself

Awareness improves

In conscious practices of awareness

There is serenity of wisdom.

On living life lovingly…

Life life Lovingly!

Someone asked me what advice would I share with my child…

I would simply share the below two pieces of advice that I came across, not only with my child, but to anyone who cares to follow.

As it will go a long way in the journey of life .

Two simple
formula of life

“Don’t make any
close relation
without full understanding…!

And don’t break
any close relation
with small misunderstanding..

Very thoughtfully said!

Life is beautiful in consideration & responses than kneejerk reactions.

Life is all about taking time to live and love but also to understand.

Life is precious and every relationship has a reason to be. Even if it’s just for a season it is meant to last its time.

Let’s never forget that…

So let’s value life, value relationships

And live life lovingly!!

Sky Above, Earth Below & Fire Within

Like the sky above…

Be expansive

Unfurl your imagination

Extend yourself, reach beyond knowing

Life the earth below…

Be connected

Yet stay rooted to the ground

Have the steadfastness like the earth.

Like the fire within

Be spirited

Let your passion speak

Explore life & give it your all.

What has life taught me today?

Life is a mystical journey

Every now is as fresh as never before

And yet deeply  rooted in yesterday

In fact every now  is embedded

With the bygone and the future.

What I learn in this now

Is interweaved in eternity time.

In these waves of understanding

Is lifes evolving ways  for the being

In the letting go of unnecessary

Is the space and freedom to be

All that one can be.

Every lesson that comes by

Makes an imprint that matters

Somewhere  somehow.

Beauty Of The Betwixt

Between the then and the yet to come

Is the moment of now

Honour this space

The bygone is no longer the matter

The future is yet unknown

Be present in this moment

Of the infinite possibilities

For what is unfolding in this now

Life is truly here in this now.

In thoughts words and deeds

Attend to this space that is

Honour the beauty of the betwixt.

The Way

When we care to truly listen

We can hear our soul’s calling.

In the journey of life

Every one of us

Has a unique pathway

That is our reason to be

That makes us feel fulfillment

That speaks to us with all of our heart

That makes us see the signs

How far would you go

To find your pathway?

Vibrations in Resonance

There is the power of sounds
Discovered in Silence
In meditative stillness
In contemplative introspection
In expansiveness  of understanding.

In the depth of listening
There is then the power of words
Of vision in the verses
Or expressions of the uniqueness
All mere vibrations in resonance.

Beyond the sum of our senses

Beyond the sum of our senses
Exists a field of potential
Embodying possibilities
Beyond the fear and doubts
Exists a space for courage
Emitting energy  in hope and faith.


Myriad thoughts  may fill our minds
All is an illusion in the imagination 
If we wish to see it so,
There is always  more
Beyond the dark, envisage the light


Unlearn the lessons taught
Invoke  the curiosity of your  inner child
Step back and see the bigger picture
Ray’s of light will find their way!

Choice rests with you!

Every now presents you with a choice

To be & do what you can

Every moment is full of potential

To engage with possibilities

Truly there is much more beyond

To know and understand

Every thing begins with a choice

And the choice rests with you.
