A dedication and fond wishes to my daughter on her Graduation Day!
Congratulations and many blessings!!!!👏 ❤️ 🙌
Today as I prepare to attend my daughters graduation ceremony in one of the prestigious institutions in France, serendipitous moments washes over me of the many memories of nurturing my child.
I present here, one of my older posts written when my daughter was a growing teenager… but still true in every word.
On Staying Happy In the Now….
As a mother of a growing teenager I have been witnessing a number of amazing experiences that only a mother and child are privy to and I hold each of these moments close to my heart. I watch as my child is evolving into a vivacious yet emotionally intelligent teen, bubbly,full of life yet practical and sensible with a heart and mind of her own.
Although my heart oft yearns for some of these wonderful moments to stay on forever, I know I have got to let it go, as time and tide waits for none. But each time I have this immense respect for this power of the infinite to carry on creating, and wonder where all this harnessing of energies is taking place. And to this divine form, which could possibly be creative feminism or the power of Shakti, the creator I humbly bow and hope that you bestow some of latent creative potential on all the beings around for them to evolve to the best of their beings .
Coming back to the silent amazement that I feel is the way in which a child is moving from a situation of pure bliss of ignorance on to the happy in the here and now state of existence and later on moves on to a state of awareness of the world with all its actions and consequences.
Gradually the child starts searching a meaning to this life and its relation to the world at large.
More than everything else I watch as the curiosity leads to discoveries and at times frustrations to accomplishments.
I, as a parent can try to necessitate an awareness in my child to be holistic in her thinking process. For instance, from a very young age, if reading and writing are made an enjoyable habit, it definitely hones & helps balance thoughts, as one learns to be aware as well as acknowledge the sequence of changes bound to happen…
After all change is inevitable and the natural order of growth . It enables one to have a beginning, middle and an end to a thought or action and thus helps you learn to be present in the moment and also let it go. This makes you less prone to being a victim of situations & circumstances of life.
Happy in the here and now is a wonderful habit to cultivate for all of us; however it is equally necessary to have a focus in life and necessitate actions towards that goal and evolve further. This adds meaning in to life and life begets the ultimate satisfaction of having lived consciously.
Loving every moment of life and learning to be aware and conscious of each moment as it passes by is a fact ,which also can be so easily learned watching your own child grow…
Thank you dear child as you teach me the lessons of life and living fine.
To remember to be kinder to oneself as much as another
Is a habit of a lifetime to cultivate.
It’s good to acknowledge the now
And remember every movement is happening
As it is preordained.
Let worry take a backseat
As well as the need for overt perfection.
Just keep the faith and hope alive in your heart
Simply know deep within…
All is well as it is meant to be.
Your approach changes everything
The way you live
The way you work
The way you play
Choose to look forward to finding the joy
In whatever you do
If you can find something to better
Something to improve from
Something to grow and expand potential
Then by all means focus on it
Spend time to learn possibilities
Making work feel better than before
Find the meaning & purpose
In whatever you do
Work to make a positive difference
Tweak your approach tweak your life
As you move forward
In expansiveness & inclusiveness
In the spirit of collaboration
Than mere competition
Gradually you begin to sense the strength
In the circle of conscious connections.
Attaining spiritual consciousness
Is a work in progress
Mastering of perfection is a myth
As perfection is an illusion.
The practice of spirituality
Is an ongoing awareness
In holistic consciousness
Of the within and without
In acknowledgement & acceptance
There is an energy of expansiveness
In Gratitude for the learnings
There is space for potential growth.
An interesting read today definitely worth a share!
Please take time to read the following article:
THE BRAIN OF AN ELDERLY PERSON.
The director of the George Washington University College of Medicine argues that the brain of an elderly person is much more plastic than is commonly believed. At this age, the interaction of the right and left hemispheres of the brain becomes harmonious, which expands our creative possibilities. That is why among people over 60 you can find many personalities who have just started their creative activities.
Of course, the brain is no longer as fast as it was in youth. However, it wins in flexibility. That is why, with age, we are more likely to make the right decisions and are less exposed to negative emotions. The peak of human intellectual activity occurs at about 70 years old, when the brain begins to work at full strength.
Over time, the amount of myelin in the brain increases, a substance that facilitates the rapid passage of signals between neurons. Due to this, intellectual abilities are increased by 300% compared to the average.
And the peak of active production of this substance falls on 60-80 years of age. Also interesting is the fact that after 60 years, a person can use 2 hemispheres at the same time. This allows you to solve much more complex problems.
Professor Monchi Uri from the University of Montreal believes that the brain of an elderly person chooses the least energy-intensive path, cutting unnecessary and leaving only the right options for solving the problem. A study was conducted in which different age groups took part. Young people were confused a lot when passing the tests, while those over 60 made the right decisions.
Now let’s look at the features of the brain at the age of 60-80. They are really rosy.
FEATURES OF THE BRAIN OF AN ELDERLY PERSON.
A large study in the United States found that:
▪The most productive age of a person is from 60 to 70 years;
▪ The 2nd most productive human stage is the age from 70 to 80 years old;
▪ 3rd most productive stage – 50 and 60 years old.
▪ Before that, the person has not yet reached his peak.
▪The average age of the Nobel Prize laureates is 62;
▪The average age of the presidents of the 100 largest companies in the world is 63 years;
▪The average age of pastors in the 100 largest churches in the United States is 71;
▪The average age of dads is 76 years.
▪ This confirms that a person’s best and most productive years are between 60 and 80 years of age.
▪This study was published by a team of doctors and psychologists in the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE.
▪They found that at 60 you reach the peak of your emotional and mental potential, and this continues until you are 80.
▪ Therefore, if you are 60, 70 or 80 years old, you are at the best level of your life.
Pass on this information to your family and friends aged 60, 70 and 80 so that they will be proud of their age.
Many drops of water
Make an ocean
Great things always begin
With the little things
Success is a matter
Of every small step taken
Such is is the power of little things
For together they can make a big impact.
Enjoy the little things in life
Attend to the little things that come by
For someday these little things
Create a meaningful world.
A Sufi Tale:
A merchant from Baghdad entered a Sufi’s shop, which had essence jars on the shelves.
Marveling at the beauty of the place, he asked, “Sir, what is sold here?”
The Sufi replied, “The gifts of God”.
The merchant was surprised with the answer, & asked, “And how much do they cost?”
“Nothing, here all is for free”, said the Sufi, observing carefully, that the traveller could see the labels: “Jugs of Love”; “Jars of Faith”; “Packages of Hope”.
The merchant said, “A big jug of love, all the packages of hope & three jars of faith for me, my friends & my family”.
The Sufi carefully prepared the order & handed him a small box.
Surprised, the merchant exclaimed, “But, but…. how can everything I have asked for, be in this tiny box?”
Smiling, the Sufi replied, “In God’s store, we do not sell fruits, only seeds. You have to sow them.
Life plays on, making us experience one moment after another. Every day our experiences in living life, can become our guide and compass.
Every failure can be a lesson to learn from and tread wisely with renewed perspectives. Every success can be an open door to more opportunities.
Life moves on
Pause to rest, recover
And replenish the self
But be in tandem with time
Dont get stuck in a time warp
Adapt with the changes
Move with grace along the way
Who knows, what’s awaiting
To greet you this next moment
Think well and live lovingly!
A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day.
A string of such moments can change the course of your life.”
– Chris Gerner
This very relevant quote came my way & I simply had to share ❤
A dear friend shared this picture on social Media and it left me contemplating…
We are born to connect
In one way or other
For a purpose larger
Than our individual self
There is light that we have
That we ourselves may not know
The potential of, that manifests
To serve at the right time.
There is always a reason
For this now, so rise above despair
And look onward and upward
The way is forward in faith
To live and help heal some more.
No wonder its said ‘Hands that help
Is holier than lips that pray…’
We are carriers of hope
That pass on for posterity
Our life is intricately weaved
In every moment of our being
Through the echelons of time
For a reason, we may or never know
Such is the ‘Mystic of life’
In all its brilliant manifestations.
Between belief and trust
There is a fine line
That makes all the difference
For to believe, is one thing
But to trust, is to let go.
In this trustfulness
Is where all the magic happens
And where the wonder comes alive
And beliefs finds meaning
In the ability to trust
Comes along the surrender
And the ability to accept the let go
In knowing there is always hope.
To trust, is to know there is
Always Something more
Than you or I
That will have our back
In complete trust
Life manifests and flourishes
Beyond the niggling doubts
And the unfounded insecurities
Trust is the power that creates possibilities
So important to trust and be trustworthy.
Trust and allow yourself to realize its potential.
To acknowledge trust, is a step ahead in faith.
We are filled with countless thoughts
Every waking moment of life
Even more so when we are alone
What we do with those thoughts
Is what matters.
How dense are those thoughts
How much vividity & how much lightness….
This is what decides
The course of life itself.
Its all interconnected
Where the train of thoughts lead us.
Choose to think well.
There is great power in words…
To charm another,influence or drive a point home.
Engagement online can turn better on bitter in a split second.It is all in the choice of words used to convey a message.
Crossing the Culture Threshold!
What to one might be just a poetic expression
To another might be a glitch of discretion.
Express if one must
Feel free to feel the way you feel is the way to feel
But only as long as anothers peace you don’t unknowingly steal.
For at times in the surging words of emotion…
Arises unnecessary stress and discomfort.
Better to know the pause in the space between our steps
And value your edges in every move.
For in every positive step in discretion
There is simply the strength of trust without mention.
When I penned these lines they were specifically for driving the message home gently that no one can tread on another’s emotional space without permission especially online using the power and persuasion of words…
True respect for another being can simply be about letting others be.
