Mystery Rock

Life is all about balance

Of knowing and understanding

Of the uncertainties of every now

And therein lies the uniqueness

Amd uncanny the ways of existence

Life manifests in mysterious ways

Sometimes leaving us clueless

Almost impossible to decipher..

So much fodder for imagination

While the pen may wax eloquent

There is room for exploration

In the reaching beyond the knowing

Beyond the sum of our senses

And the betwixt and beyond

Imagination and curiosity

Lies the path of sharing & learning.

Peace be with you!

As you go through daily life

Just care to remind yourself

That you are being watched over

And cared for …

This simple habit will bring

You immense peace

and transmit universal love.

Peace be with you!

Art of Shoshin

Art of Shoshin

Helps in honing the ability

To see the world with fresh eyes

Staying curious in awe and wonder

Letting  go of unnecessary perceptions

That can cloud the clarity.

When you choose

An open mind

Without assumptions

And pre conceived notions

Without pride or prejudice

No matter who you are

What you have,

Or how much you know…

You are present

You are receptive

And welcoming of perspectives

To explore infinite possibilities

Of the potential now.

The Beginners Mindset

Begin the day

With enthusiasm for learning

And hope to discover some more

Unlock the possibilities

Of your mind

Adapt your ways

To learn from the challenges

Experience the world

Be open to perspectives

Learn and reflect

Give generously

Share to learn some more.

That way you create space

For you to grow

Reaction & Response

In a world too busy to care,

Too hurried and impatient

All must happen fast

Every thing must move quickly

Speed is a part of life

And life is lived on the fast lanes

However hurried reaction

Is considered unwise

Compared to the calmness of response.

Yet the truth is …

Between the active and passive


Exists a space to balance


Between reaction to response


Exists a pause for reflection

With reference to the choice of voice


Both have significance of their own


In the right situations & context


That can make all the difference.

Healing Moves

Wisdom of Moderation

‘My first intentional practice of Tai Chi began years ago on a rainy day in the month of June. The sweet cadence of the rain in all it’s rhythmic glory, the cleansing nature of the rain was just as wonderfully comforting as much as the experience of Tai Chi, with its movement in stillness and the stillness of its movements.

 As I tried to move in unison with breath and learned to direct the momentum for the movements from the central core of the body to the outward, I could draw the parallels of the simple yet profound principles of Tai chi giving a lifetime’s guidance.

A life lived in the middle path gives one equanimity to see beyond the obvious. To envision the duality of existence enough to understand joy and sorrow, are not something eternal. Life becomes simple and just as easy to live as we make it , letting go of excesses of any kind, which ultimately works towards healing oneself from within.

It only adds to the fact that this moderation makes you want to work at building progressively, instead of  pushing the boundaries and stretching beyond your abilities to the point of probably injuring yourself and giving up altogether.

The rain’s rhythmic tapping on my open window sill, the occasional bursts of cool breeze surrounding me now and then was in tune with my learning to release and melt away the accumulated stresses through conscious gentle outward movements . I felt a few varied sensations coming to me vying for attention, but as soon as my focus returned to simply witness the flow of breath in the movements the very same sensations completely vanished.

It was so peaceful to end the practice with breath awareness and mindful movements that I must add that like everything else in life, Tai Chi must be ideally learned under the guidance of a good teacher to experience the gamut of life enriching experiences it surely has to offer.

As I completed my  practice for the moment , suddenly there was thunder and lightning  signifying the release of feel good endorphins and hopefully parting with some of the tensions within me. This is after all the essence of Tai chi , to be one with Nature and learn to nurture it .

  A humble dedication to Tai Chi form and the powers of the supreme in and around us.

Reduce Recycle Reuse

The three R’s – reduce, reuse and recycle – all help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away. They conserve natural resources, landfill space and energy. Plus, the three R’s save land and money communities must use to dispose of waste in landfills”

Positive change begins with us.

Every living being is making a difference to the environment in every moment. The question is how and in what way can it become sustainable.

With melting ice-caps, the collapse of vegetation and wildlife, and violent surges of hurricanes droughts and frequent wildfires are all concerns for our world.

And there is really not much difference in the apathy that is happening in the name of sustaining the future… only much similarity in the situation of corruption and deceit through politics of governing people whatever the part of the world we are living in.

Sustaining the world is each of our responsibility as we think of ways to nurture the earth and nourish souls.

It is time to take it upon ourselves to make a positive difference from wherever we are.

Reduce reuse and recycle … every tiny effort makes a better world!

Universal Oneness

Nature of Creation

We are nature

And nature is in us

We cannot exist independently

The spirit and soul, in each of us

Knows a thousand lifetimes & more

We live parallel lives in the eons of time

Our cells know the truth of being

As they are created and degenerated

Making way for more to manifest

Such is the cosmic resonance in us

Like stars & galaxies betwixt & beyond

We evolve in the Universal oneness.

Being content…

A realization

Of all that you have

In this now.

Being happy…

An appreciation

Of what you have

In this now.

Being grateful…

An acknowledgement

Of the gifts of grace in and around us.

All is well.

We are living  in a world  rushed for time. People hurry and scurry through the day.

What we see in others is a part of us too reflected through them, when we are accepting of that part and able to respect it just as much as ourselves , we create all that we need to see at that moment .

Some very basic humane abilities are necessary in our journey in life.

To listen to understand, to connect, to acknowledge, to emphasize, to sense gratitude, to share happiness, and care for another as much as for ourselves.

Much of the world’s issues may find solace & resolutions in simply caring  to be present in the moment.

In these abilities lies the truth of nature in its magnanimity and abundance in every moment.

And All is truly well.

Space of Calm

Still waters run deep they say

There is much learning in the depth of calm

Stay hopeful but grounded to this now

Have dreams but be in this moment.

There is peace even in the storms

They say…

You can train your mind to find calm

As within you is the power of calm

To sense and be

Whenever you choose to

You can find your space of calm.

Gratitude Tree

Every  occurence  has a reason .

Life is a full circle
The pain and pleasure  both are what makes it come a full circle
Grateful  for every thing that is, was and will be.

A sense of courteousness envelopes  you when you feel grateful  for everything…
It’s beautiful to feel so!
