Your life your choice.

Life is awaiting your awareness

To realize the power of your potential.

Its all in the way you choose to live.

To let go & dare to dance the skies

To take the chance on the rapids

To walk along witnessing the flow

To sit by the shores sensing it all…

The choice rests with you…

Every moment is what you make of it

Your life your way!

Value of Values

A beautiful story share that tugs your heartstrings.

Remember Kenyan runner Abel Mutai who was just a few feet from the finish line, but became confused with the signage and stopped, thinking he had completed the race. Spanish runner, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was happening, started shouting at the Kenyan to continue running. Mutai didn’t know Spanish and didn’t understand. Realizing what was taking place, Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory.

A journalist asked Ivan, “Why did you do that?” Ivan replied, “My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life where we push and help each other to win.”
The journalist insisted “But why did you let the Kenyan win?” Ivan replied, “I didn’t let him win, he was going to win. The race was his.” The journalist insisted, and again asked, “But you could have won!” Ivan looked at him and replied, “But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honor in that medal?
What would my Mother think of that?”

Values are passed on from generation to generation.

Traveling along…

Sharing a story that came my way on Social Media.

I am Travelling with you !

Every year Parents took their son to his Grandmother’s House for the Summer Break, and they would return Home in train after Two Weeks.

One Day the Boy tells
his Parents:
′′ I’m Grown Up now,
What if I go to Grandma’s House alone this Year ???”

After a Brief Discussion
Parents agree.

They were standing on the Railway Station, seeing him off,
Giving him Last Instruction through the Window,

As Boy continues to repeat:
′′ I know, you’ve already told me so many times…!”
Train is about to leave and Father whispers:
′ My Son,
If you suddenly feel Bad or Scared, this is for you !…… ′
And he slips something into his Pocket.

Now the Boy was all alone, sitting on the Train, without his Parents,
for the First Time…

He looks at the Scenery through the Window.
Around him Strangers Hustle, make Noise, Enter and Exit
the Compartment,
He gets that Feeling that he was alone..
A person even gives him a
Scary look…
The Boy felt uncomfortable…
And now he was frightened also.
He lowered his head, snuggled in a corner of the Seat,
tears rose to his Eyes.

At that Point he remembered his Father putting something in his pocket.
With a trembling hand he groped this piece of paper, and he opened it,
Son, “Don’t Worry,”
I am in the Next Compartment…

*Truth* :

This is How it is in Life…
When God has sent us in this World, all by ourselves,
HE has also slipped a note in our pocket,

*God Says:*
I am Travelling with you,
I am within your reach !
Call on Me…❗

One World

The world is beyond what we assume

There are no labels on earth

There are no maps drawn

All that we believe is what we have created for ourselves

We may have different names

We may create different countries

We may call ourselves citizens of one land

But earth knows or cares not of your distinctions of race gender or creed

It knows not rich or poor

Nature knows not class or caste

Wonder what are we so set about ?

What makes us so full of opinions?

In fact if we only could see and a acknowledge

The earth in all its beauty

There are different seasons in different places

Yet our world is not about differences

For under the sky and sun

We are one, life is vulnerable and beautiful in all its unique ways.

When we care to see diversity as a strength

We would be more caring of our mother earth.

And we would see our earth as one and only world we have.

An Expression Of Manifestation.

Image credits: Fb Group Unique Trees

Saw this photo on a Fb group share and I couldn’t help pause and wonder about this expression in manifestation.

How beautifully it has orchestrated its creation

How artfully the artistry of photography has captured this brilliance of creation.

Every where we see nature emotes in magnificent awe-inspiring ways, the wonders of creation… in the trees, be it in a little leaf , a bud, in aging bark & trunk of trees , in the cloud paintings up above in the canvas of the sky or even in the dance of the waves in the sea…🙏

Waking Up To A New Day!

We are the thoughts we think,

We become believers of our ways

What we do today has always a reason.

But every dawn is full of hope

Awaken to sense its brightness

Care and accept the vividity

Allow space for light to enter.

Much changes in doing the above..

Wake up grateful for this new day!

Wake up hopeful of this new day!

Learnings in Life.

I loved these lines …

On learning in life.

Life is blessed

In valuing the gifts we have,

In cultivation of skills we are enriched

And life is transformed in the choices we make.

Life is full of infinite learnings

Endless opportunities and possibilities …

Life is how we make it!

For the love of books

A book bound or otherwise

Is a treasure to an ardent reader

Who knows the emotions sensed,

In the company of a good book

Of times, well spent in the joy of reflections.

Reading is a beautiful voyage of discovery… of new learning and associations in assimilation.

Books, that transport us back and forth in time in a moment.

Books, that beckon us to a world of imagination.

Books, that create the magic of words

Books, that speak of truths and illusions

Books, that contain stories of life & living

Have you a favorite book that comes to mind immediately?

Cultivate space…

As we cultivate a space

Within and around us

To listen and observe

To understand and care.

We access the underlying wisdom

As we allow ourselves to notice

The ways of life and living

We come across fresh perspectives

When we allow ourselves to hear

The sounds of silence

We sense our feelings

We accept our emotions

And likewise..

We tune inwards a little more

In this conscious awareness

We practice…

To tap into our intuitive intelligence

In every cell of our being

Speaking through our senses.

To access the powers within.

All we need is to cultivate space.

Centering

Align the self

Assimilate the learning

Acknowledge the lesson

Amplify your purpose

Accept your presence

Allow yourself to simply be

Beautiful
Osaka

Such tranquility

Peaceful pink haven

Beautiful serene places…

A lovely moment of reckoning

To breathe in and sense

The glory of nature

In all its Springtime expressions.

A dedication

Yesterday was Celebrated as World Poetry day

A dedication …

Video credits:Fb

Wisdom from souls who know
Say angels fly, as they take themselves lightly
A matter of being at ease..so that you will traverse far
Fly knowing the roots are steady on the ground
Soar in the sky sensing the wind in your wings.
Stay on course… you will find yourself.

Life is better the moment you realise
Its value in every now.
So when worry and despair imbalances your thoughts
When anguish and self doubts rocks your self esteem
Rest assured it shall all pass and time will get you over the brink
Just care to have faith, ease up your thoughts
And choose to live, dancing lightly with life .

Resonated deeply with this lovely visual shared by Sanja Sremacki so resharing it along with my verses above as a dedication to this very beautiful reflection of ‘Living life in the lightness of being’.

We hear and understand more

Silence speaks more than words can say.
Listen to the intuitive
The meditative, contemplative
The reflective & the restorative voices
There is a connective wisdom
In the sounds of silence
Emanating from you.
It is your precious inner self
Expressing itself.
Be mindful and attentive
Listen if you can,
Every once in a while.”
Embody the peace within.
