Art for Heartsake

Practice anything

Consistently

As a way of life

And it will become art.

An art that is tangible…

To sense like an artist

In the throes of creation.

For as you practice

In your passionate perseverance

Your soul is enriched

And your spirit shines

In its own truth.

“Art is for the heart from the heart with all your heart ….

Flip the script

Every day you have countless thoughts

Our thoughts carry energy

Some positive ones making you hopeful

Some negative leaving you stressed

Upset and drained.


But to truly make each day beautiful


Whenever there are too many negative


Thoughts  that arise…


Become mindful


In awareness train yourself


To think it over


Focus the many good

Let go of the bad.


Flipping it over makes all the difference


The question is


Will u try and flip the script?

Inspirations

A person never is bored when he or she is creating something,expressing oneself. Through art forms, painting, singing, writing,and whatever that connects deeply to oneself.

And thats the beautiful part, where one art inspires another as much as the self to explore more.

Strength of Silence

Strength of Silence
Silence is Strength in its subtlety
Fragile and yet full of potential
Expanding consciousness in awareness
Tremendous growth occurs in Silence
Explore the Silence  of the soul and spirit.


Silence  is powerful beyond  compare
Start your journey to understand  the self
In the sounds of silence
Wisdom speaks
Silence listens without a word.

From wherever we are

Wherever we may be
In this world, we are busy
We are too busy watching this now
For what might happen or go wrong
In doubt and fear of uncertainty


We perhaps, need a moment
Thàt we can can acknowledge
In awareness of where we are now
We might then, take note of all things.


Things that we can be happy about
Things that are not too bad after all
Things we may actually  be joyful about
And then perhaps we can feel better

From wherever we are
However we are, as we are.
There is much, that we can be
Truly grateful for in this life.

A Matter Of Attitude.

In every moment of time

When you consistently attract & share

The good energies from wherever

You send out feelings of goodwill

You share the grace of hope for the better.

You begin to evolve from where  you are

And help make the  world a little better one way or the other.

All is a matter of attitude.

Your choice, your way.

To each his own way

A Chinese business man was thinking whom to hand over his business out of his 3 sons. He thought of a way to find their talent.
He told his sons he, who sells more combs to the buddhist monastery will be the one who will head his business.
Initially the sons were perplexed how to sell combs to the monks who do not grow hair.
After the specific time given to them, father called his sons to know about their achievements.
First one told I sold 2 combs.
How asked the father.
I told them the comb can be used to scratch their backs. 2 monks bought it.

Well. What about you , father asked the next one.
I sold 10 combs.
How asked the surprised father.
I told the monastery. that the people visit with dishevelled hair because of the strong winds on the way which is a disrespect to lord Buddha. If they keep a mirror & some combs at the entrance it will help people. They agreed & bought 10 combs.
The merchant praised his son .

Third son said I sold 1000 combs. The merchant was in awe.
I went to the head monk n told since they receive a lot of donations, it would be a nice gesture, if they give something like a blessing to the donors.
What can we give asked the head monk.
I showed him the combs with Buddha’s sayings inscribed on it & said since they use comb everyday it will be a reminder of teachings every time they use. . He agreed & ordered for 1000 combs with Buddha’s teachings inscribed.

No need to guess who took over the business from father.

All will think it is impossible to sell combs to the monks.

In life also we may face certain impossible situations . If we become disheartened then it means we have accepted defeat.

The 3 sons showed us 3 different ways of thinking.

First one thought what other way the comb can be used n sold 2.

Second one thought who other than the monks can use the comb n thought of the visitors . He was able to sell 10.

But it was a one time sale n no further sale in these lines will work out.

The third son also thought on same lines like the second, but with a difference. He modified the product as a gift wiith Buddha’s blessings to the donors. With the increase of donors , his sale will also increase.

So never accept defeat or think that coming out of difficult situations is impossible, start thinking differently. Expand ur vision from different angles.
Think to bring some small changes which will bring great results.

No one to buy tomatoes, dumped in garbage.
No price for cabbage. Used as manure in fields
Bananas , radish thrown on the streets .
We read many such news.

The knowledge we have in farming, we don’t have in business. Pickles, chips, jam dried vegetables, so many other ways to make them profitable. Instead of throwing or wasting, think what else use it can be put into. Learn to approach the correct persons. , through co operative farming or combined business.

Learn to change impossible situations to positive opportunities.

With patience , faith, hardwork n vigour if u start working , the impossible situation will become the foundation for a future big success.

Never bow down to initial negativities or accept defeat.

Expand your vision & focus.

Live with hope & positivity.

(Translated from a Tamil forward by my mother Anjana.)

All of You Matters

As an employer, recruiting the right people for the job is extremely crucial for a successful recruitment.

While hiring
Your degrees may not matter that much
As much as…
Your integrity, sense of ownership and dedication at work.
Yes, the employers are seeking all of you, beyond the certifications
Your drive, your ability &  your commitment
Is visible in all that you say & do.



For it truly does not matter where you come from or what you know,
What matters is what you do with what you know.


Build the self to be aware, empathic and emotionally  intelligent beyond your degrees and specialization.

For even if degrees get you the job
It is your ability & adaptability that keeps you there.

Whispers of wisdom

In the din of moment

Is the quiet reflection

Of thoughts in musing

Like a whisper in all its subtlety

Like a soft caress of a breeze

Like a feeling wafting through.

The soul knows…

Unnoticed, unobserved often

Yet felt by one and all in consensus

At one point or the other

That is sensed in the being.

For its the heart that senses…

Whispers that speaks to the soul,

Wherever you are, you know…

Wisdom speaks, to the willing listener.

An Illusory Life

I wonder…


Where is the beginning


Of illusion in this illusory world?

In the many facets of life and living

Blending hues and tones

In Connection beyond compare

And yet unsure when asked

Where is the blend & breakpoint


In this ephemeral existence?


We are vulnerable beings


In this so called reality


Trying to understand

This illusory life


To the best of our abilities


To be all we can be!

Yet sublime is the point of saturation


Like the subtlety  of twilight zones


We are left wondering the why, when,what, who & how…

Of the ascent of light and the descents


Like how the morning breaks in.


Showering upon us the light of a new dawn.


Dawn to dusk,dusk to dawn


Creating the Circles of being


Life happens and we goes on…

Keeping the wonder alive!

Power Of Every Dawn

There is something beautiful

In every dawn🙏

Every dawn is full of possibilities

Brimming with hope.

And flowing with potential .

Imagine making the life of someone

A little better because of your action

Imagine…

Waking up everyday to a new dawn…

What can be more fulfilling

Than to know that you have utilized

Your life a little better yesterday.

So go ahead and try

Making a positive difference each day

To a life in some way or the other.

So before you go to sleep at night

Know a new dawn awaits you

To make a move, take a step,

To change attitude,shift perspectives

And leave a message of kindness

To motivate another …

And make it better.

By being a better version of oneself.
