Is in our hearts

the universe paves the way and how.”💙

Same piece of sky
That we see everyday
Makes us gasp in delight
Every other day
Showing a new side
Painting the canvas
With vivid color and hues
Patterning itself in a dance
What ever the sky shows
We believe its the truth
Perhaps there is much more
In all its alluring textures…
A piece of sky
Makes you assume
The time of the day
But the perspective shifts,
When you create a barrier in-between
That divides the sky
Into distinctive diverse parts.
We begin to see the differences
We begin to pick our favorites
Colours tones,hues and tints
Associating with the shapes in the sky
Deducing patterns and patches
Divided in our choices.

When you are in love…
Love makes you hear music, you have never heard before,
Love makes your steps look like a dance.
Love makes your heart flutter in abandon.
Love makes you see the truth of beauty in the ordinary.
Love is the gift of grace from your soul.
Be in love. Be in love
With yourself and the world around.
And make both a better place to be in.
Be in love with life…
Live life lovingly!
Every life is uniquely endowed with perspectives and experiences.
A living book is a human who shares his life’s stories and wisdom with willingness with another interested individual.
If the conversation is interesting the living book is read some more but if it does not meet the requirements of the individual reader, he is free to get up and find another living book to meet and connect.
Living books library concept is an interesting way to bring together learnings from life experiences directly on a one to one basis and a group setting. The conversation depends on what you want to understand and turn it towards.
Life teaches us much and every human can benefit from unedited direct soul to soulful connects where words flow at the moment.
In such connection is the transparency of truth that is glaringly stark from a book of prewritten words arranged in a format predesigned to sell in the market.
Life is so much than being a business.
In these discussions, the reader or the learner and the living book are both free to direct the course of the conversation without constraints.
Unlike a regular library of books, the human library is a gathering of humans and is event-based.
There are many functioning human book libraries all around the world today.
The concept began in Copenhagen Denmark in 2000. The idea is to be nonjudgemental and engage in a dialogue that helps break barriers and social prejudices. The human book could be anyone who has a story to tell and is ready to share it. Or someone who has gone through any kind of discrimination and wants to share their experiences openly.
So next time you want to explore the idea of reading a book, consider and lookout for opportunities to connect with a human book!

A story share on Anger Management
There was a saint, who was never affected or angry at anyone, how much ever anyone ill treated or insulted him.
His disciple was intrigued by this nature and wanted to know the secret of his calmth.
When he asked the saint, the saint patiently explains how he conquered his anger.
“I had this long time habit of meditating while sitting in an empty boat on a lake. While doing so, once when I was in deep meditation suddenly another boat hit my boat . I was so angry to know who was so careless to disturb my meditation. But when I opened my eyes in anger I saw an empty boat which was moved by the blowing wind and hit my boat. I realised my anger was unaimed as it was an empty boat .
So when ever I get angry I remembered it n think this is an empty boat too and became quiet.
Our anger affects us in 3 ways.
1.It affects our wisdom
2.It affects our body
3.It affects our behavior.
Now you know the secret of my calm nature.”
The truly strong person is not the one who controls others by physical strength, but the one who can control himself from his anger.
This simple story elucidates the necessity of self reflection and awareness of the negative effects of anger on oneself as much as others.
Anger is often a result of frustration and feeling blocked . The reactions can escalate out of control in time.
Uncontrolled Anger ruins life and living.
Anger is damaging and destructive.It is important to break free from its vicious cycle.
Giving is the movement where the heart speaks without hesitation and in the flow through deeds and words. There is a moment of a decision before the giving and it is in that moment that life can be propelled to evolve along with the patterns of thought.
There is a lot of lovely words focused 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 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.
The search for meaning
Is never in vain
There is always a meaning
To life and living.
One or a million reflections
At times can lead
To a miracle in the making
One or a million drafts
May lead us to a perfect design
One or a million words
Can bring on the inner genius
One or a million works of art
Delivers a masterstroke.
Each step is of value
And somehow significant
To someone somewhere
As much as…
To the ultimate whole!.
If something seems to be of waste to one person, there is always a possibility of so many who may find it useful.

The Comprehending Mind
The mind can see the bigger picture
Beyond the niggling bits
It can construct inspite of the constraints.
In a sea of jumbled words
All it needs is a little bit of structure
At times with just the first and last letter in the right place…
The scrambled words gets unscrambled.
The capacity to comprehend
To make sense and understand
To put together the pieces
Is in the deciphering ability
The human mind is truly amazing
In being able to see the words than mere letters.
In being able to analyze in prediction
Of the ensuing possibilities.
In hearing a sound and predicting the next.
In decoding arrangements.
In creating meaningful coherences
Perhaps there is wisdom
Then, in the well known words.
Mind over matter!
Aren’t we often biased about our brain’s workings?
Is creativity only by the so called right- brained?
Is attention to detail only by the logical left-brained?
We need to see beyond these narrow definitions
To broaden our sense of the spectrum of creativity.
Our creator has bestowed us variety in creativity.
We can be lyrically logical.
Analytically artistic and much more.
There are scientifically proven facts
Spouted from words of poets
And poetical manifestations
Of empirical evidences by scientists.
The proof of concepts
Lies in our own nature,
In the fractals of life,
Myriad and mystical
Yet mathematically coherent.
Our brilliance may shine in one field
Because perhaps we haven’t
Yet truly tapped and glimpsed
Into all of our own potential abilities.
Let’s never belittle the true self
For beyond the facade and ego dramas
Our every cell vibration is deeply tuned
To the forces of nature and nurture.
We are far more than we could ever know
We have all imbibed it well in our subconscious
It’s just a matter of time before the awakening
Of the stream of conscious energy in the flow.
As a dance educator I have very often come across statements like ‘Mam, I have two left,’ which meant they were so clumsy that they cant dance . Or that they have no balance.
This is truly just a perception…
If only we can understand there is a dance and a dancer in every life. And the dance goes on!
After all we all have a heart that is beating right now!❤
I have heard people often talk of the students of arts as right brained as they are more artistic . Or a science student classified as left brained and logical.
However there is so much more to people beyond these biased compartmentalization. When we begin to see beyond our limited beliefs we open ourselves to the potential within .
Our innate potential simply needs awakening to realise, the truth of who we are and what all we can be….
Yes… the reality is stark
Forest fires and climate changes
Disappearing rain forests
Global warming, polar vortex
Extinction of rare species
Food and medicine adulteration
Air water and noise pollution
Materialism leading to corruption
Repercussions of rising terrorism
Mismanagement and misconduct
Leading to apathy and war
Exposure from radiation
Indifference on an all time high
Alarming toll from disasters
Both natural and man made.
Is this what we have done with our life?
Time is slipping by, to make a difference
In being concerned, to save our world
To become a responsible world citizen.
Making some changes to our lifestyle
Supporting and sustaining green living
Volunteering our lifeskills
For our environment needs us now.
In taking time out to help out
Much can be done by each of us!
Manage available resources
Reduce recycle and reuse.
Learn to sustain and support it
Plant trees and reduce emissions
Nurture the world with care
For nature is listening!
Every step towards a more caring kinder world matters!
Each of us can do much from wherever we are
All it needs is awareness and action
In responsible ways
That helps and heals our world
Yes its truly hightime to nurture our mother nature!
As we dance through the apparition of appearances
Evey rememberance has it’s own take of perspectives…
We are made of matter.
Matter is filled with energy
Our life is full of changes
Manifesting itself in so many ways.
Sometimes these very changes
In our lives bring out
Redistribution of our energy
Creating a lack or overflow of energy.
Our life patterns can cause a rift
Between thoughts and action
Between emotions and behavior
Emerging in imbalances
Yet we are each at our best
When we have our unique mix of energy
A concoction suitable to our nature
In proportions of sublime precision
As we give we receive
In receiving there is giving
To balance and counterbalance
The emerging inadequacies
All a matter of movements
That heal in the doing
That restore our spirit
And align with our soul.
This dance of chaos and order
Balance and imbalance
Are part of the same source
Maintaining our energy equilibrium
A good dancer invites you on a journey
You choose to flow along if you wish
Never in compulsion but in emulsion
Of the spirit of the moves
In unison from the heart of the art
In emulation of the joy of the dance
That frees you into acknowledging
The rhythm within so divine.
Listening to the melody in reverance
Tuning to the beat of the distant drums
Movements in momentous vibrance
Then all is harmony in the symphony.
