Amazing nature

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.

Aristotle

Nature never ceases to amaze us

Such is the wonder and awe of nature.

Nature is full of surprises

Every tree , every branch

Every flower, every bud

Like all living things is unique

Yet patterned in synchrony

Adapting to ways of being

Nature is resilience personified.

Every where we care to look

There is something to admire

Something to respect and learn from

Salute to the splendors of Nature.

Taking all of you!

Find yourself!

How involved are you in life?

In your passion?

In your engagement?

In your purpose?

In your lifes moments?

What is it that makes you go on

Taking all of you

Into whatever you do?

Perhaps…

You have an answer within

You are already on your path!

Creating anything worth having

Can take all of you

To be involved to be engaged

With a purpose that drives you…

Beyond yourself!

And you find yourself!

A Perspective of Advocacy

A mind-boggling perspective on Advocacy came my way !! ūüôā

College Student Group asked a lawyer
*So what does ‘advocacy’ mean?”*

Lawyer said:
*I will present an example for this!*

*Suppose two people come to me, one is very clean and the other is very dirty. I advise both of them to get clean and take bath.*

*Now you guys tell me, who among them will take a shower ?? “*

One student said: *”The one who is dirty will take a shower.”*

The lawyer said:

*No, but the clean person will do it, because he has the habit of bathing, while the dirty does not know the importance of cleaning*

*Lawyer :: Now tell who will take a shower ?? “*

The second student said: *Clean person*

The lawyer said:
*No, but the dirty person will take a bath because he is the one who needs cleaning.*

*Now tell who will take a shower ?? “*

Two students said: *”The one who is dirty will take a shower.”*

The lawyer said:
*”No, but both will take a bath because the clean person has a habit of bathing, while the dirty one needs a bath.*

*Now tell who will take a shower ?? “*

Now three students speak together: *”Both of them will take a shower.”*

The lawyer said:
*”Wrong, no one will take a bath, because dirty is not used to bathing, whereas clean one does not need to bathe*

*Now tell who will take a shower ?? “*

A student politely said:
*”You give a different answer every time and every answer seems to be correct. How do we know the correct answer ???”*

Lawyer said:
*This is just ‘advocacy’! It is not important what the reality is*
*The important thing is, how many possible arguments can you offer to prove your point.* “ūüėā

On Team Management

Team Management

Today the world is expanding rapidly on many fronts inspite of shrinking communication time and reachability across the world…. the fact is, organizations are confronted with a multigenerational workplace.

Values and beliefs that was so far held by the world are finding new definitions and its difficult to catch up with the changing trends. New words of communication are coined every day and the generations suddenly finds themselves alien to each other.

So for organizations to acclimatize to a changing world, the old patterns of thoughts and mindsets need fresh perspective…

Time and again a revision of what’s redundant or what cannot work in a fast changing world needs identification but with discernment as there is much wisdom garnered in the experiences of life and living.

Here are 6 A’s worth imbibing in work places to sustain teams and evolve for the better.

1. Acceptance

Accept there is a place for every one… be inclusive of the diversity… Accept that the differences are what is unique to the person and teams need people with diverse intelligence to take it to the next level. Every stage comes along with some learnings.

2. Acknowledge

Acknowledge the value of interdependence at work strengthening a culture of inclusiveness. Importance of co-operation in collaborative work cannot be stressed enough.

3. Allowance

Allow the expression of new ideas, suggestions and let it find listening ears no matter which team or who it comes from.

4.Appreciation

Appreciate and celebrate the work done, even the little wins help to motivate the team. Appreciation is an evolved method of correction.

5. Alignment

Align the set of achievable goals of teams with the mission & vision of the organization. More the alignment the faster and easier the channelling of communication by maintaining open communication greater the chance of successful endeavors.

6. Accountability is being accountable about to being able take responsibility at all times and own it.

As a Consultant with a deep interest in Wellness, at work this is what I facilitate day in and out especially so, in these uncertain times.

From applications of art and movements to creating space for dialogues to understand shifting mindsets & perspectives I have been mentoring diverse teams at work places.

Every team afterall, is made of unique individuals but the issues faced as a team are often similar.As a result of interaction and the scope of work different patterns of team dynamics are created.

If you have been responsible to manage teams to collaborate effectively….

Do share what kind of challenges have cropped up in your teams and how have you managed them.

Would love to understand more.

Grace of compassion

If there is one authentic communication it is the grace of compassion. To reach where it truly matters In every circumstance, in every aspect of life and living deeds in compassion and kindness will always make a positive difference in a multitude of ways.

We may not know where and how but the rays travel far and wide influencing and touching many hearts.

To do good for the hurting without expectations of any kind is a sign of a compassionate soul.

GRACE IS A COMPANION TO COMPASSION…

It blesses the doers and envelops them in its infinite and abundant wings. In a jittery world filled with doubts and uncertainty, where in a state of confusion there is conflict and chaos strewn around, these angelic acts of compassion mean and matter much more than what is visible to us.

These humble acts of compassion serve as the bridge that balms the spirit of soul to heal itself. They resurrect the soul and empower the world and correct the imbalances.

Connection is the truth of our being

Our interdependence is so very strength in knowing this vulnerability … for perfection is an illusion yet all is well in perfect balance And profound and awe inspiring is this truth of nature.

Yes, often undervalued by the world for it knows not the power of such acts of grace…it is a relentless consistent work in progress by kind souls for all living beings.

A single act of Compassion has the power to change hearts, and lives. Such is the grace of compassion.

CIRLE OF CONNECTIONS

We are connected

In the Infinite tapestry

Of life and living.

As we dance with life in gratitude

We gradually, sense the strength

In the circle of conscious connections.

Power of Faith





Behind the smile is the hidden strength

Behind the gentleness is steel in spirit.

The spirit is strengthened in the living.

In depth of  love comes the strength

In loving deeply is the courage to dare

Against all odds.

Such is the might of the warrior  within…

Inner faith can move mountains.

Gods Gift



Every moment  in time
Is a gift of God.
In both the so called
Good and bad







The easy and difficult times
There is always  a learning
To sense and understand
To evolve along the path.






Yet I am a lover of the mornings…

It gives me hope to look forward  to
No matter the darkness of the night.
One more chance  to make life better
To share and create
To heal and to help another
There is a beauty in every dawn
The way the sun rises every  day
The way the darkness gives in to light

I am more me in the mornings
I enjoy the waking moments unhurried
I revel in the  now in the  bliss of bless
I witness the dance of light at dawn
As the sun beams its rays across
As earth awakens itself from slumber



The chirping birds fill me with joy
Its not noise to me, its a song
Of  motivation and energy
To carry on through the day.
Mornings share hope for the day
Do give yourself  an early start
Make mornings work for you
Bask in the grace of light.

The Synergy of the sun is upon you!


Know the mornings after a rested night
Are specially conducive to invoke
Your creativity in the things you do
So write create draw paint sing & dance.

Sleep not the mornings away.
What a waste of life’s inspiration¬† it would¬† be
Remember…
Every morning  is a gift to yourself
To unbox and release  hope some more.
