Life in the living

Life is

Inexplicable Uncertainty in the now

Undefinable Strength in the moment

Unimaginable challenges that arise

Infinite possibilities in the potential

Unstoppable hope in the living

Be it in Strength or weakness

Threats to opportunities

Life shapes and moulds in experience

Be it desires, wants or needs

Life is a journey unto itself

Life is a circle in the living.

In synch

When what you say
And what you do
Are congruent
The effect of your words & deeds
Radiates all around you in resonance.


It’s no wonder then that
In a world that seems so dissonant
Words and deeds need to synch.
In harmony of such synchrony
Faith and trust meet belief
And that’s what makes all the difference.

Life and Living

Whenever I come across a heart touching action, or a prose ,a poem or quote I will be sharing it here in this series…

Some people make the world a better place by their thoughts words and deeds...

When the sport turns to a dance…

When the feet move in a rhythm

All its own, in uniqueness

Artistry is acknowledged.

An Inspiring life

Friends
See, Brazil’s under 17 footbal coach Amadeu Carlos who is “just” 76 years old.
This is called Brazilian football magic…
He proves “Age is just number.”
Amazing skill, energy and stamina.

This above information is social media forward, yet when decided, I wanted to learn more about him. I found that his age is misconstrued.Yet whatever the age, age is just a number, his skill is clear to see and that’s what is beautiful to see.

Here is a (wiki ) snapshot of his life and living.

Carlos Amadeu Nascimento Lemos was a Brazilian footballer and manager who played as a left back. He represented Bahia as a player before injury curtailed his career. He went on to have a managerial career which spanned almost thirty years.

This is how he sums up his country and its relationship with their favorite sport….“In Brazil when a child is born, the first gift for him is a ball. Our relationship with football is huge. We are a footballing nation and we like that”

Illusory Perceptions

Power of suggestions

Shapes our perceptions

Perspectives are formed

Associations are conjured

What is , is not all.

Such is the illusions in the perceptions

Time to regenerate

Night is a time of  regeneration
In acknowledgement of a pause
Of the need  for rest and recovery
As the day blesses us with a night
Own the time to sense the rejuvenation
Slip into bliss of sleep,
In the oblivion of darkness
That slowly descends  on us all
Just be , knowing  the night gives in to dawn
In a few hours more…
Be wise to unwind  and unshackle.
Touch base with your soulspace
Refresh your entire being
To look forward and greet dawn again  in hope

Dance of Nature


There is dance

In every leaf and flower

In every bud and bloom

In every twig and tree

In every turn and twist

Of nature’s creation.

There is the grace of uniqueness

Of wisdom beyond compare

All knowing, all pervading

To this Omnipresence …
I bow in Gratitude to this Grace.🙏

Finding Time

Ultimately it all about finding time

For a…

A little laughter to keep you light

A little kindness along the way

A little walk for your good health

A little whiff of fragrance divine

A little tune to hum through the day

A little step to carry it through

A little tap down the memory lane

All to align you to your happiest self

1500 WordPress Posts

WordPress says I have published 1500 posts!! Calls for a little celebration of this milestone and thankfulness in Gratitude  to you my dear readers in this journey together! 🙏😊

The Journey so far…
The simple act of writing a little everyday, penning down my thoughts and sharing with you all here, the time spent here, has been deeply rewarding in more ways than one. Yes, a moment of reckoning indeed of all those contemplative times.🙂

While some of you my readers have suggested me to focus on the monentary benefits of blogging, yet a few of you have appreciated my artworks and also suggested that I must compile a book in some of the kind comments you leave, which I will cherish for a lifetime. So thank you all for encouraging & supporting me right through…

As many of you my readers already know, I diligently practice writing a post every day for over three years now…

This is beautiful canvas space of expression for myself on all the little things that come my way and touch me one way or the other

The Vision Ahead …

I believe I am now ready to explore the idea of compiling a book of my writings. So I would truly love to hear from those of you who have walked the path of publishing your books.

Yes there is a lot of information on the internet about publishing, but I think to listen to you my readers, and hear your individual and unique wisdom garnered from your own experiences in publishing a book as a fellow writer would add a relevant perspective.

And secondly if you could share your thoughts of my writings, it would help in understanding more of what you envision of me as a writer.


Would you care to write and share about what are the steps to publish a book?
And as a reader if you have been following my posts here, what genre do you think my works could do well?
It would be really nice to learn from you all.
Do share your experiences, and leave tips for the road ahead in publishing a book if any.
It would be certainly be a step ahead.

Love it!

The vibrant energy of joyfulness creates a feeling of enthusiasm and wellbeing.

If we can bring it upon ourself to sense joy for what is, we will find it manifests where ever we are, in one way or the other, in more ways than one.

The ability to alter our attitude towards life is directly proportional to the way we experience life.

We are what we think and our behavior is influenced by our perceptions of life and living.

If we wish we can choose to change

The way of thinking and sensing

Life evolves for the better along the way .

On Trust & Leadership

Leadership in teams.

If you have been leading teams at work…

How important do you think is a culture of trust to an enterprise and its growth?


How would it be possible to create, nurture & sustain trust in teams?


On a scale of 1 to 10 where do you think the team you lead,  is in terms of trustfulness

Companies  spend a lot of their resources planning for engagements  that are geared towards trust building.
There are get togethers, team lunches, resort trips arranged,and social events organized to ensure  every one has a good time and build a rapport with each other.



Trust is a significant and valuable  trait to build into any functional  team.
And it is the responsibility  of the leader to create an atmosphere  for trust to follow through  in teams

What are the genuine  ways of trust building in teams?
What makes a team trust a leader?


Besides skills and abilities  to lead and show direction  to the team when in need, a leaders trust quotient increases  when they are ready to be vulnerable enough  to let the team understand  that after all we are together  through  the thick and thin.


Secondly it is important  for a leader to be able to cultivate a habit of  communication  in clarity that let’s the team understand  the intent for a plan.

More than anything  else, it makes  way for an authentic  and open culture of trustful action  and responses.


And speaking  of responses,  an effective  and efficient  leader will seek feedbacks to create a proper follow ups and follow through  of any intention.


Whenever a leader internalizes these  values as habits of  being authentic and vulnerable with their team , trust is born.

 In every effort taken towards creating a consistent  channel of communication with their team  trust is built. 


And while finding resolutions through  followups with timely responses  trust is sustained in the teams.


Great organization begins with teams that place value on trustfulness  as an important  part of the Growth mindset.

The way…

Love is the way

For all of us

As each of us matters

Somehow somewhere

We are all connected

In the infinite plan

And each of us

Needs to become responsible

To make a meaningful difference

For life to thrive than just survive

We need to be respectful

Towards each other

To gain the trust & faith

That makes the world

A better place to live in

For all of us

Love is the way

The Open Mind.

“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it isn’t open.” – Frank Zappa

You decide how much your mind is ready to receive.

Your mind is as open as you want it to be…

Life & Living

Whenever I come across a heart touching action, or a prose ,a poem or quote I will be sharing it here in this series…

Some people make the world a better place by their thoughts words and deeds…

Some people, tell it like it is without mincing anything

And the truth in all its profound simplicity tugs your heartstrings…

Beautiful words
Written by
Sophia Loren (Actress)…

_” When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone….. When I was sure of Losing, I won……. When I needed People the most, they Left me……. When I learnt to dry my Tears, I found a shoulder to Cry on…… When I mastered the Skill of Hating, Someone started Loving me from the core of the Heart…… And, while waiting for Light for Hours when I fell asleep, the Sun came out….. That’s LIFE!! No matter what you Plan, you never know what Life has Planned for you…… Success introduces you to the World……. But Failure introduces the World to you……. ……Always be Happy!! Often when we lose Hope and think this is the end… God smiles from above and says, “Relax Sweetheart; It’s just a Bend, not the End..!”_

Worthy reminder indeed!

Worth taking a moment to be inspired by the truth of life and living in her words.

Here is another recent share about her …
Sophia Loren is returning to cinema after an 11-year absence. Loren, 86 stars in upcoming Netflix drama The Life Ahead, which is directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti.
At age 83, Oscar winner, Sophia Loren remains the epitome of la Dolce Vita and glamour. Although recognized as one of the most beautiful woman in the world, the Italian Icon is equivalently known as the woman who dared to challenge traditional conventions of beauty in the 1950’s.

Every life has a unique story

Every living has a unique pathway

When heart speaks the world hums along…

Positively speaking.

Whether it is today, in these times of uncertainty or other… a positive approach to life and living is deeply rewarding.

This is indeed wonderful as an attitude to cultivate towards living life. Being positively enriching & encouraging is truly the best way to help make a difference.

But the trick is in fine balancing the emotions that manifest along the way.

Embodied Practice of Empathy

When you practice sharing positive vibes consistently, you are putting a lot of hope and faith out in the world.

Yet you need to be empathic to yourself, care to understand your own emotions as well, by accepting and acknowledging them, without getting embroiled in them .

Make sure to acknowledge what is happening with your own life.

Speak from the heart.

All that is happening in the world today can be disheartening . So when you are out, sharing positive vibes make sure that you are internalizing them too. Sustaining a spirit of hopefulness is the key driver for a positive mindset . The world needs doses of positive attitude in thoughts words and deeds.

Authenticity of Attitude.

Making sure to feel from your own heart before you share these words of hope is a worthy practice to adopt.

Whatever said or written,words are mere words But when you begin to respect and respond to the emotions sensed in the feelings that arise you begin to see the world in its most vulnerable state.

When heart speaks the world hums along…
