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.




What choice would you make?


Be a lamp or a lifeboat or a ladder

Help someone’s soul heal

Walk out of your house like a shepherd


Precious words from Rumi which are empowering, to say the least, awakening in us to respect the innate potential we all possess to reach out to help another …

To help is to empower the mind body and spirit of another.

Empowerment is a powerful factor in building lives. Given the choice of transforming lives with the abilities, you own…if you are ready to help another…
What would you choose to be?

Being a Lamp :

A lamp lights up itself to light the way for another It is selfless and expansive . The light of a lamp lets you envision the strengths within the self as much as the others For to enable sight is to allow the envisionment. Being a light enables and empowers, as it throws light without fear or favour.
It is simply the quality of light to shine graciously!

Being a lifeboat:

It is the very purpose of a lifeboat to help save lives to allow another to hold on, to never fail in protecting from drowning in the voyage of life.

The lifeboat is a survival tool and is built to weather the storms without giving way. It floats on relentlessly without giving up to reach to safety.
Being a life boat in an emergency is like a godsend!. To save a life is to value its preciousness of the being.

Being a ladder:

Allowing the self to be utilized for another is the very nature of a ladder. In fact to be a ladder is to allow another to reach and aim higher to develop and evolve further.
A ladder is constructive in its very core essence, to build up another towards a goal.

Being a builder of another’s dreams and helping propel another to a cause greater than the self is the sign and strength of being a ladder. Being unmindful of the treading over of another in their attempt to reach their aspirations is a tall order indeed. The ladder provides the way without any personal gain.

Here are 3 beautiful sayings worth remembering always…




Self-empowerment &healing :

To help transform lives is to empower from the heart and make a difference!

However, it is about healing the self-first enough to let light in that helps others to see!

A friend in need is a friend indeed! ;
Whatever is your way to reach out and help, what is truly significant is the one who helps in time and need. For such a help is a hand of God in divine grace.

So make a choice to reach out to the world in your own unique way for it needs all the help it can get!

On Nurturing : 3

Gamut of Nurturing : Mind body Integration


Nurturing is an integrated spectrum of experience and it is highly recommended in todays times of survival  of the fittest to embalm the body spirit and soul.

What can be nurtured … well almost everything…

From a thought to an idea to a habit to a passion and more . When nurtured , in hope and goodwill there can be transformations in the transitioning of time .

Nurturing is a very vast ocean of unconditional love and support which can perhaps make the nurturer extremely compassionate and even exacting for the good of the nurtured . But perhaps the concept of nurturing needs to change as well with the changing sensibilities of time. 

In such scenario as it presents itself nurturing needs a relook like a time stamp and check on where it is heading often keeping the iterations going to evolve further.

There is a dignity in nurturing

With understanding that arises

In patience tolerance and perseverance

Beyond an attitude of indifference

Nurture in trusting

Heart over mind

Or mind over heart

Is not the question at all …

Nurture  in spirit and soul

With all of your being

In every communication

Or crisis confrontation


Nurture in conscious awareness

Accepting the interconnects

Acknowledging the interdependence

Arising to evolve in life and living.

Nurture knowing truth is eternal

In Spirit, knowing it  is for you to kindle

In Empathy knowing you are because they are

In compassion sensing the suffering and pain.

Nurturing is not an on off act

It is a never ending journey

It is a lesson in  unconditional love

It is a life time of learning in the caring.


To nurture is to arise to any occasion

In hope and goodwill

In strength  of positivity

In light beyond passions.

Nurturing is an art of living

In bringing to light the hidden good

In surfacing with dignity and grace

In knowing the  infinite truth of being.

Nurturing is  in the unfolding resurrection

In transpiring to regeneration

As in such an reviving emergence

Life begets the vital resurgence.


To nurture is allow hope to permeate in all

To nurture is choose to better from before

To nurture is to raise the bar of accomodation

To nurture is to instill faith and bond in trust

To nurture is an emergence of a boundless bond.

A nurturing heart supports and nourishes

A nurturing nature provides care and comfort

A nurturer cultivates and lays the foundation for roots to grow strong and spread .

A nurturing soul is the key to a better future.
