Make room



A simple reason to better the self
Is to evolve as you grow.
In living life
Is the wisdom garnered.

Your deeds create space
Making room for more.
Your thoughts manifest
All that you deeply intend.

Choose to add and subtract
With the power of choice
That rests with you
Add the good, minus the bad.

Choice rests with you
Choose well!

The ‘Now’ Matters!


This space between  the past and future

It could  be a moment , an instant  or a day..

Simply centering  without  distractions

It’s all in this here and now…

Energy  flows where the attention  is!


In this space of between  and betwixt

Is where there is no time

For it is irrelevant.

And what matters is this Now!

State of Earth Today

Are we cause of all suffering
We are not only the cause
We are the reason
For the ‘State of Earth’ today.

We have breached all laws of nature
We have plundered and marauded
Not only our own
But innocent voiceless sentient beings.

Our crimes are heinous
Our ways unethical
Morality or humanity
Is completely missing
Across the world today.

Our actions corelates
To the price we all must pay!
We speak without kindness
We act without empathy
We are ruthless and hopeless.

Tilting natures precious balance
By our callous self serving ways.
Our earth has taken a toll
Bearing patiently in witness mode

Centuries of abuse and neglect
Nature has no time to be silent
It’s truly now or never.
Nature must begin to equalize.

Man has broken every law of nature
Now nature needs to self repair
Humankind must change their ways
Seek ways to maintain and sustain earth.

Just being human is not enough
We must practice our humanity
Else the wrath of nature
Can no longer be contained.

Our ways had got out of hand
Life was getting unbearable
And so beyond control.
And way beyond hope.

In the madness of being modern
The malady of our times
Values and ethics were trashed
Respect and regard were binned

Stress and tension
Anxiety and panicking
Sleeplessness and fatigue
Plaguing the world over

Materialism and indulgence
Hitting an all time high
In greed apathy and indifference
We took our world for granted.

Now nature is reclaiming
What’s rightfully hers
Her pristine glory
Her beauty her peace.

Now nature has put humans in cages.
Animals and birds roam free,
Roads are empty, rivers are cleaner
Pollution has given way to purer air.

While mankind is locked down.
Nature is restoring to sustain herself
Hope we realize & amend our ways
For the State of earth today.

Joy of Giving & Sharing

Every ask has a reason.
Every give fulfills a reason.
What reason it fulfills is another story!

Joy of giving & sharing

When can you give and share with joy?
And what happens when you give and share …

When your cup is overflowing !

A state of abundance
This is an extreme state where you are having so much to give. You are overflowing with possibilities in the potential.
When you give from here,
You may not miss anything.
You may not know the joy of sharing and giving as you have so much more.
Maybe you are giving because you want to get rid of whatever you are giving.
Maybe you want to self balance.
Maybe you want to share with those unfortunate.
Sharing the good always helps.
But do u know if the one you share it with truly wants it or uses it well.
Or do you give no matter
Even if it goes to waste
Because you are overwhelmed. Then that is not giving but discarding.

When your cup is half full!

When you are having some and then you share some, then you are sharing from your heart and brain.
Youunderstand and feel for those in need.
You share because you have something to share, may be not much but you know in your heart
That as you keep sharing you create space for more to come. You are balancing yourself between needs and wants.
You are careful in what you give but you give from your heart, from a space of love.
Such a giving arises from equanimity.

When your cup is almost empty!

When you give from nothing much to give maybe you are hyper extended already.
You may know but choose to ignore it
Else you may be unaware that there is not much left.
In both these cases the giving takes more out of the giver, so much so that it may soon cease.
What can u give when there is nothing to give?
You will give may be beyond your ability but then you will tire soon, feel used and exhausted.
This is a state of tilted balance not a great way to give.

We all may have experienced this at some point or other in our lives.

While giving from a place of love and trust it never goes wrong. We do need to feel the joy in giving. As long as your heart says go on, you must, else notice what’s making your hearts feel different and pay attention. You may learn something more on it!

When the giving & receiving complement each other it is truly ideal. But most often that is not the case.
However, giving is best shared when it comes from a place of trust faith & confidence in the giving that there is always going to be something to give.
When giving is mutual there is a flow and there is abundance.
When giving is from contentment there is gratitude and vis versa.
When giving feels enough it’s best to assess why it feels so!
In greater understanding, the giving flows…

Life is never stagnant
Its meant to flow
Be a giver
Giving always finds itself receiving
Life is a circle.

On Vulnerability



To all those who seek perfection  in every  little  thing that they sometimes  drive themselves  and others crazy….
ease in and let go for a bit,  see others as they are , not as you want them to be.
We are all vulnerable beings.
We are humans after all, let us be supportive  and celebrate  the power of  humanity to overcome challenges  that appear along  the way.
We are powerful in  acknowledging our respective situation  from where we are and working amicably towards  finding resolutions.
After all  besides every thing else,the world needs humanity  to overcome  the challenges of being human.

Art of Management

Team Management

Management calls for special skillsets but with changing times the skills have much to do with empathy in people management. Every head of department faces different sets of difficult situations but most common to all is getting the work done by the team effectively increasing productivity with the available resources.

You are improving your team every time you incorporate the following ways

1. When you talk less, and are listening more.

2 . When you begin to delegate work to the right team members and increase the sense of responsibility in them.

3.When you are able to speak assertively with confidence and empathy than simply ordering people around.

4. When you are able to analyze and share appraisals to resolve and find solutions in a non judgmental manner.

5. When you are able to steer and guide them in their endeavors without overtaking the joy of effort.

6. When you practising collaborating with your team instead of trying to be the controlling one.

Every team is unique as the people in it and this makes it uniquely interesting to manage as well.

On Interconnectedness

The strength of the interconnects run deeper than we can fathom.

We are much more interweaved and interdependent than we realise.

And the sooner we realize how much we need to coexist, the better we will be.

Beyond Judgments


Art of living 




Truth is
Life thrives 
In nature

All we need to do
Is to not stunt
But let it bloom.

Only remember
To Nurture life
Move beyond judgements

Without  discrimination
What emerges will be
The truth of the being.

As it was
As it was
As it is
Meant to be!

Positive Energy

Every move you make
Alters energy in space
Creating new patterns
Attracting vibrations
Shifting perspectives.

In conscious awareness
Our positive gestures
Begin to give and receive
Balancing subtle currents



Influencing  cosmic rhythms

Activating harmony fields

Increasing  love hope and joy
Spreading  peace and contentment.

Integrating elements

Imbuing divinity  in motion.

Profound stories


Talk of profundity in brevity.
So much can be said in a few words.
Came across  this very brief but thought provoking read and felt like sharing . Have interspersed them  with a few relevant pictures.



8 micro short stories, with deep meanings!

(1) Those who had coins, enjoyed in the rain. Those who had notes, were busy looking for shelter.

(2) Man and God both met somewhere. Both exclaimed, “My creator.”

(3) He asked, are you a Hindu or Muslim? The response came, “I am hungry”!

(4) The fool didn’t know it was impossible. So he did it.

(5) “Wrong number,” Said a familiar voice.

(6) What if God asks you after you die, “So how was heaven?”

(7) They told me that to make her fall in love I had to make her laugh. But every time she laughs, I am the one who falls in love.”

(8) We don’t make friends anymore…. We Add them nowadays..

On trusting

A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers at several hundred feet above the ground. He is slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.

Everyone down were watching him in bated breath and were tensed. He slowly reached the second tower. Everyone clapped, whistled and welcomed him. They shook hands and took selfies.

He asked the crowd “do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?”. The crowd shouted, “Yes, Yes, you can”. Do you trust me he asked? They said yes, yes we are ready to bet on you.

He said okay, can anyone of you sit on my shoulder; I will take you to the other side safely.

Everyone became quiet. There was stunned silence.

Belief is different. Trust is different. For Trust, you need total surrender.

This is what we are lacking towards God in today’s world.

We believe in God. But we don’t trust Him.

🙏

On Trusting…

Trust is a matter of letting go

Letting go is a matter of faith

Faith is a matter of feeling

Feeling is a matter of knowing

Knowing is a matter of awareness

Be aware in trustfulness.

And so it goes…

Where every move matters…

Isnt life like a game of chess
Where every move matters
Where every step creates opportunities
Where without a plan we may be flummoxed

Where a sense of direction creates progress
Where there is anticipation of possibilities.
Where there is a passion for purpose
Where dedication and perseverance.

Where attentive alertness makes all the difference.
Where awareness and keen observation matters much.
Where every decisive move can impact profoundly
And yet with all the planning one could be checkmated.

Life is meant to be played on for there is no looking back.
Where having a goal is important to fulfillment of living.
Yes life is like a game

Where joys of the journey is greater than success and failures.

In this now

Imagine each moment in this now
Is brimming with possibilities
Each moment is in a choice you make
The way you feel, the attitude you carry
Its charts its course of how it impacts you.

You are immensely powerful
In making the most of the moment
Your intent to see and visualize
Can change the moment for you
For moments are as you see them.

Choose to see life with a love-filled heart

Choose to see hope beyond despair

Choose to see the joy reflecting through you

Choose to shape and sculpt the moment.

Choose to smile from the heart

Choose to channel the energy of this now

Choose to steer in positive thoughts

Choose gratitude for this now

For all that you are, were and can be.

Cells and us!

Cells and us!

Irony of our times
In the name of connection
We are truly disconnected
We are celled to our phones
Caught hook line and sinker…
Glued to a metal contraption
That’s overtaking our lives
Living in a imaginary world
We are feeding on bytes
While reality bites
Haven’t we taken
A bite of more than we can chew?

Here is an animation by Steve Cutts …that brings forth the stark truth of our times.

Our vibrance

Our universe is full of waves of energy. And all life is energy in varied forms .

In the subatomic level all is vibrational and moving .We are all pulsating oceans of energy fields. This very waves of energy is what makes us unique as we are in ourselves and in the way we interact with one another.

Sometimes these waves of energy are seemingly stagnant and at times moving in momentous speed.

Life is full of vibrations. Sometimes you sense its brilliance and at other times it is so subtle and subjective to our level of understanding at that point in life. Yet there are reasons for why you emit the vibrations that you do. And it’s all interconnected.

From the food, you eat your choices have a way of influencing your body and your body affects the way you feel and think.

Our thoughts have much to do with our emotions and thus the behaviour of every cell is affected in a relational way to another.

Some simple ways to raise your positive vibrations…

Walk outdoors

Smile and laugh more

Spend time in nature

Have a hobby

Support a cause

Exercise, dance & play

Listen to soothing music

Eat vegetables and fruits

Drink adequate water

Think well for one and all!

And most of all

Love life and live it lovingly!
