Art of Simplicity

Some years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco.

Mensa, is an international organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher.

Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe.

When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt.

How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any, and using only the implements at hand?

Clearly — this was a job for Mensa minds.

The group debated the problem and presented ideas and finally, came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer.

They then called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution.

“Ma’am,” they said, “we couldn’t help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker contains pepper…”

But before they could finish, the waitress interrupted & said…

“Oh — sorry about that.”

She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.

There was dead silence at the Mensa table.

For most of the problems in our lives there are simple solutions, but it is our “Brilliant” minds that complicate every simple solution. …Change the Caps and enjoy life !!

Simplicity resides in the complexities

Complexity is just simplicity turned upside down.




A Share of Peace

So own up to your share of peace.


The Tree Remembers & How!

The Axe Forgets
The Tree Remembers.
…African Proverb

The surging pain of the strike
The slashing that seethes the soul.
The emotions deepen the wound
Such is the exacting nature of the hurt.

But learn you must
To gradually evolve
To let go the past
To grow anew
Arise from the scars
Forget you may not
But forgive you can!

Like the barks of the tree
Although scathed and bruised
By the cuts of the axe
Growing out new branches
And blossoming into spring
Flowering in fortitude…
Strengthening the Soul
Renewing the spirit

For the Bark of a Tree …
Tells the tale of sheer grit
And strength in the grounding.

Your life’s scars are patterns
Life has drawn on you
While you held ground.

Replenish &Regenerate. Only to bloom again in time!

Be proud of who you are.
You are amazing! !



You and I

When you take a step
And hold my hand
As we dance as one
Listening to the tunes
Of our beating hearts.

Moving to the melody
Sensing the synchrony
Sharing the love
Spreading smiles.

Without a word…
We know for sure
Whatever comes along
We can make it all right
However lost we may seem
We will find our way
Yes, you and I.

Flow through the day

Expressing yourself  uniquely along the way!

On Giving:Part 3


Giving is the movement where the heart speaks without hesitation and in the flow through deeds and words.There is a moment of decision before the giving and it is in that moment that the life can be propelled to evolve along with the patterns of thought.

There is a lot of lovely words  focussed on Giving  and most are essentially on the’ Give before the Take.’

However, I also have something to share here …

Every giving may have its own reasons…

Some may be in an instinctive reaction like warming up of the heart due to mutual understanding either being in the wavelength of a resonance at that moment.

Or it may be because it is in goodwill as you genuinely care to show your appreciation.

Another would be because of your own good nature where you cannot leave without a positive act of appreciation in response…. there may be so many million and more reasons for giving which is wonderful for the world at large.

Now the reasons for not giving may be personal and unique as well.

Like for instance when you feel you are being used for a purpose that is self-serving.

Often there is a certain energy, in the very act of giving and that is what leaves an imprint on us and decides our future course of action.

Like at times a particular person’s energy may overwhelm and exhaust you or may be too much to handle that giving more thought or attention to it would feel counterproductive.

Like when you feel stressed and overburdened in the complexities of life and living that you simply may have overlooked the fact that the giving action is truly way beyond the gift itself.

Like when you fail to understand the reasons for giving or think the giver has ulterior motives for that matter…you may just appreciate it out of politeness but steer clear of receiving further as its truly not in your best interest to receive such a gift.

But whatever it is, Giving nurtures and nourishes the soul of both the giver and the receiver when the intention is positive.

Go Give More of Yourself

Cos You come from Abundance

Receive with  thankfulness

For that fills your own being with Grace.
