Evolving with the changes

Change is inevitable, but you are the one in charge of how the change impacts you and how you respond to the changes.

Dare to dance with it! Dance with life!

Purpose of being

There is always a reason

Nothing  is accidental

There is always purpose of being.

Let the purpose become bigger

At every step of the way

Remember you are creating ripples

That are expanding your purpose

Of living , of being who you are.

As you are meant to be.

In the infinite abundance of being.

Finding faces

This picture was shared on social media…

Can you see a face in the lake ?🙂

Here are some more faces

How many faces can you see now?

Feel free to trace some more…

Pareidolia (/ˌpæriˈdliə/,[1] US also /ˌpærˈ-/[2]) is the tendency for perception to impose a meaningful interpretation on a nebulous visual stimulus (so that one sees an object, pattern or meaning where in fact there is none).

Ref Wiki
Seeing familiar objects or patterns in otherwise random or unrelated objects or patterns is called pareidolia. It’s a form of apophenia, which is a more general term for the human tendency to seek patterns in random information.
Face pareidolia seems to be a universal phenomenon.

Finding faces in the most unexpected places, may have an evolutionary angle of a need to seek familiarity in the wake of the unknown, for a psychological safety.
Or finding faces in the bonnet of a car that makes it look more fun, friendly & smiling.

Maybe piecing the possibilities together to make sense is an illustration in the illusion…
Whatever the case creativity of the human mind is infinite in its potential to conjure up endless possibilities out of practically nothing concrete.

In the ability to create abstract associations to integrate and create and merge a more meaningful interpretation for ourselves,makes it an art of limitless possibilities.

From wherever we are

Wherever we may be
In this world, we are busy
We are too busy watching this now
For what might happen or go wrong
In doubt and fear of uncertainty


We perhaps, need a moment
Thàt we can can acknowledge
In awareness of where we are now
We might then, take note of all things.


Things that we can be happy about
Things that are not too bad after all
Things we may actually  be joyful about
And then perhaps we can feel better

From wherever we are
However we are, as we are.
There is much, that we can be
Truly grateful for in this life.

Tommorow’s World

The world we see today

Is changing rapidly

New norms are setting in

We are in a state of flux

From fighting pandemic

To accepting lockdowns

As a way of being

People starved of socialization

Are appeased by bytes of reality

We are attuning ourselves

To being masked at all times

Practicing distancing and being indoors.

But life goes on no matter what

Sensitizing us to new ways of living

What matters most then is

Is that here we are, inspite of it all

We learn to align with ourselves

Moving with care and compassion

From here on empathy guides

Leading us to knowing ourselves.

This is the truth for us all

Of tommorow’s world.

Traveling along…

Sharing a story that came my way on Social Media.

I am Travelling with you !

Every year Parents took their son to his Grandmother’s House for the Summer Break, and they would return Home in train after Two Weeks.

One Day the Boy tells
his Parents:
′′ I’m Grown Up now,
What if I go to Grandma’s House alone this Year ???”

After a Brief Discussion
Parents agree.

They were standing on the Railway Station, seeing him off,
Giving him Last Instruction through the Window,

As Boy continues to repeat:
′′ I know, you’ve already told me so many times…!”
Train is about to leave and Father whispers:
′ My Son,
If you suddenly feel Bad or Scared, this is for you !…… ′
And he slips something into his Pocket.

Now the Boy was all alone, sitting on the Train, without his Parents,
for the First Time…

He looks at the Scenery through the Window.
Around him Strangers Hustle, make Noise, Enter and Exit
the Compartment,
He gets that Feeling that he was alone..
A person even gives him a
Scary look…
The Boy felt uncomfortable…
And now he was frightened also.
He lowered his head, snuggled in a corner of the Seat,
tears rose to his Eyes.

At that Point he remembered his Father putting something in his pocket.
With a trembling hand he groped this piece of paper, and he opened it,
Son, “Don’t Worry,”
I am in the Next Compartment…

*Truth* :

This is How it is in Life…
When God has sent us in this World, all by ourselves,
HE has also slipped a note in our pocket,

*God Says:*
I am Travelling with you,
I am within your reach !
Call on Me…❗

🙏

Already there…

Who is there when there is no one to turn to?

Who is there to bear it all?

Who is there to help you back on track?

Who is your trustworthy ally ?

Its you and only you.

Truly …

Everything you need is already inside you!

This one line is a wonderful boost to bring an awareness back of the strength within us all.

Wouldn’t you agree?

Hope blooms in my heart …

As I awaken to the bright blue sky
There is a sight for me behold across the window
Of swaying daffodils in the gentle morning breeze…

Glistening in the new morning
Are the dew crystals on its hopeful golden petals…
Drinking in the energies of dawn.

I partake the joy of this dancing flower
And my feelings take a turn
When I truly begin to believe
Hope blooms in my heart...

This above poem came from my little attempt at Magnetic poetry based on a pre set list of words from Rahuls post that served to inspire.

Here are a few words that I realized I have left from this above list… for someone else to  include in a couplet or two…

Never, Keep, belong

Feel free to add a verse or two!

Are you too busy?

The art of giving time and attention…

Is worth mastering to have any

successful relationship.

Nothing worth having can ever be rushed.

What do you think?

Learning from a free spirit



Today I write about my dear and very loving father…

Perhaps the most uncomplicated man.

A paragon of the free spiritedness of a child.

He has an uncanny ability to be happy like a child.

What he desires are little things like a child.

Yes, he knows how to get what he  desires

But the happiness he feels & expresses, in the most ordinary things

That is his blessing of simplicity.


Life can be an epitome of adventure and adaptability.

It can challenge you & test your resilience & reserves

But to be able to be in touch with the inner child in you.

No matter how  life takes its toll on you

Is the strength in the vulnerability.



I dedicate these musings today to my eternally ‘young at heart’ father.

For from him, I have imbibed many beautiful learnings
Will share three, especially relevant here…

  • To be able to find happiness in the ordinary things.
  • To be able to stay hopeful, light & positive, no matter the density in the moment.
  • To think well of all and make way for happy thoughts and share goodwill.

  • God Bless You Dad!

    Stepping out of our own way!



    We are Magical beings in the flow
    Such is the truth of creation
    Yet often we are blinded by our own self
    Clouding  our minds with density
    Of thoughts and doubts
    For we are so full of ourselves
    Our illusory pride and prejudices
    Out  assumed notions and convictions.
    That we forget we are part of the infinite abundance.
    With immense potential in the possibilities.


    If only we can believe 
    In our being and choose to trust
    In the purpose of our being.
    Acknowledge with awareness
    The spirit of life and living
    Choosing to thrive in the flow.
    Learning  to allow and accept
    The unfolding cosmic patterns
    By stepping out of our own way!

    Nature fascinates


    We explore it in unique ways
    Some of us lookup at the sky
    Admiring the infinite vastness
    Of spaces above and beyond

    Some of us look down  at the ground
    Preferring  to  dig deep into nature
    To witness the foundation  of living
    Exploring the very roots of the life


    Some choose to dream and envision
    What might be, in  hope for the morrow
    Some sit in stillness  witnessing their breath
    Knowing all the truths of life is within.

    Some prefer to dance with life
    In this now as it unfolds
    Accepting nature as it appears
    Preferring  to make best of its moments.

    Boomerang Effect



    Love boomerangs
    It is the very nature of love.
    For love generates more love
    In the sharing is creating
    In the creation is the spreading
    Of this heartfelt expansion called love.

    Love is meant to flow
    For life to be sustained.
    Love flows its course
    In its own time.
    Such is the power of love
    Love when channeled
    In goodwill transforms the world.

    In this love, life is lived
    In this love writers write
    Dancers dance,  artists  create
    Poetry flows, Singers sing
    All in the resonance of love.

    Love envelopes the whole spirit
    Without fear or favor
    For love boomerangs
    Such is nature of love.
    Sweet Love!💙💜💙

    On Attitude


    Our perception
    The way we see
    Changes the way
    We take action
    Our attitude
    Can make or break
    Our way of being. 



    Its all in us
    The ability
    Of changing
    Our ways
    Towards understanding
    Towards realizing
    Towards learning
    There is always more…
    Than what we choose to presume
    The way we express
    The way we carry ourselves
    Our attitude says it all!
