Here are 5 R’s of Coaching

& Conflict Resolution.

Recognize
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. So a team or an organization is more than just the number of individual members put together.

Reframe

To bring different factions into consideration and consensus it is necessary to reframe the issues in a more inclusive way that speaks for one and all. It is important to validate the needs and apprehensions of all to find common ground.

Reconcile:
All are parts of an interdependent system.
So every move impacting one will impact one and all.

Remember :
The strength is in the interconnects.

So think beyond the immediate self and work towards envisioning & understanding the larger picture.

Resolve :

Be inclusive and expansive.

Be mindful to be positively impactful.

In every organization whenever there is a need to examine the pressing issues of individual human nature and/ or behavior in a team and come to a resolution, it is mindful to be aware of the surfacing of hidden dynamics at play in communication and its impact on personal /professional relationships.

Any mediation is, after all, a process of balancing the ways of engaging, managing and productively finding resolutions that can help make a positive difference towards peace and goodwill.

Master or mastered




Why mind.
Who is the master?
Who is the mastered?

When mind masters you follow

When the mind is mastered you lead.

Want to lead or follow…
The choice rests with you.

Grace up your life.

Live your life with the grace of faith in your heart

Touch a heart, reach beyond knowledge

Speak with certainty and be assuring.

Yet be gracious. Be gentle. Be loving.

There is much going on in the in-between.

In the silence of the unsaid and unspeakable.

Delve deeper and reach the truth of the being.

In these ponderings are great insights.

Bringing forth the wisdom in the subtlety of being.

Life is fragile yet fascinating if you choose to see it so.

There is strength in the vulnerabilities of life.

For every life carries in it the wisdom of living many lifetimes.

The purpose of your life is much more than you can make sense of.

Live your life lovingly!

Infinity

Truth of life

Every horizon once reached

Reveals another beckoning at a distance

There is always something more…

Across and beyond the goals you reach.

The horizon beckons as it unfolds.

The magnitude of space & possibilities

To discover and understand

To explore and learn

That life is a journey

Of infinite horizons!

Food matters

Reflections on food

Do you live to eat or eat to live?

I must confess I am no foodie,never carried any food fixation so far. Never craved too much for any particular food. Perhaps an occasional sweet treat was all I indulged in. Much to my surprise today I see a generation of food lovers around me who perhaps are growing in numbers as write this .Many of my friends bake amazing treats, some love watching food videos and others chocolate.


Children today are spoilt by choices more than ever before . And with the media at their fingertips most are happy to order and eat whatever food they want by the click of a finger through apps.

Food to me was to nourish my body and keep me healthy. As I grew up I realized even more the value of eating nutritious  clean and healthy fresh food and at the right time.

Concepts of eating, then and now has drastically changed. People are ready to eat convenience foods.at the touch of a button. Many want food delivered without the hassles of preparation.

No one has interest in conversations much. With a food of their choice delivered to them wherever they are, and a mobile phone in their hands convenience has reached a new high.



Family dinners were a place where all used to connect with  each other … Now they are quieter affairs with every one glued to their phones and television.

In fact the concept of eating together is slowly vanishing. Most people eat watching  a movie on Netflix  or a sport on television.





Today life moves at a much faster  pace where time is a precious commodity.
Changing times calls for major alterations  and adjustments  in lifestyle  choices.



In knowing  to strike a mid point  where both the palate and the plate gets a healthy makeover says much about the necessity for change in today’s times.

True happiness is an inside job and what is felt within reflects on the outside.


So what is important is that one develops and sustaining a good relationship  with food in life, rather than abusing the body with too much or too less of it.

For it is after all a matter of food and food matters much.

Virtual Illusions

Caught hook line and sinker

Wherever we go

Wherever we are

The web follows us

Connectivity is a boon and bane

For there is always the peril

Of being caught up deeply without knowing.

Minutes melt into hours

Before you free yourself from its clutches.

In its tempting interactions..

Unaware are many, of its effects

On the health of humanity

Radiation, fatigue and syndromes

Affected can’t put down their phones

As people seems helpless without it.

It’s time to draw a line

To regulate time spent on the net.

To be aware of the dangers of high speed wi fi connections.



Distance and shield from harmful (Emr) radiations where ever and whenever possible.

Switch off phones at night.

Switch off phones at night.
You will find yourself regenerating.

And your wellbeing will improve.

Make sure to spend time out in the real world.

Before the web snatches all your time.

Unshackled Souls

Cage not the heart of those who dream of the yonder
Beyond the clouds over the hills
Their spirit seeks to wander.
Across the horizon, their soul belongs

Seek not to hold them
For they are way ahead of you already
Too swift are their thoughts
Too far away are their hearts
Too distant are you from them already

Not for them, the mundane chores
Not for them, the worldly spoils
Not for them, the earthly desires
Not for them the meaningless wants 

Seek not to find common ground
For they have moved on way back in time
Neither in dreams or in dare
Can there be a parallel
Seek not, as your paths are not meant to cross.
Let them go, as it is meant to be.
