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.

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.

Creative Ingenuity

Wonderful vocabulary and ingenious indeed!

The human genius behind the pen, has an eloquence in expressing thoughts as much as a methodically structured brain to have attempted this.

Yet I wonder about the creativity of writers….

What makes every writer so very unique?

Simply saying the uniqueness of thoughts is just one part of the equation

There is always more than what meets the eye, there are some life experiences, the books that are read, the nature of nurture, the kind that leaves a certain impression, all that perhaps leaves a diversity of imprints, interespersing the imagination with potent possibilities in the musings.

Every writing has a certain uniqueness of manifestation that unfolds the magic of thought patterns in the structuring and presenting.

From simple to compound to complexity of sentence structures, the choice and arrangement of words and phrases penned, can be both, subtle and stark indicators of the spirit and soul behind the words.

Every writing leaves a soul print.

And every writing can be a journey back home unto the self!

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.

Why save bees?

Image credits Social Media

Perfect pollinators
Supporting the ecosystems
From wild flowers to food crops


For Interconnections run deep
With the plant and animal kingdom
As much as with all of life and living.

Its said, if bees become extinct as a species
We humans will cease to be, in just four years

They not only produce the nectar of life
Bees sustain the delicate balance
Of the environment of our world.

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

Pathway to Sanity

Life can challenge us in the living

Each moment can throw us into a maze

That we need to go figure for ourselves 

Personally speaking…

I turn to self reflection and solitude  walking in contemplative introspection, when I need to rebalance  and align myself , as in doing so I am able to understand and reconsider how difficult it has been, given the circumstances and I comfort myself by acknowledging that I have done my best.

I am grateful for this ability to write  and paint my heart away, and express myself through arts, just as much as being kinder and compassionate with myself.  For in every such moment,  I am learning  to be a better me.

I also find great solace in meditative movements and soulful dancing that help me bounce back to normalcy.

In difficult times what keeps you sane?

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.
