On Mentoring




None can tell you what is the truth
As much as you yourself can!
Often a mentor , a guide a teacher
Can take you near your truth
But  its all up to you to own yours


Every truth is colored by perspectives
Of its own creation.
Every person has a truth
That needs to be reckoned with
As the perspectives converge
There is an emergence
Of the truth of one’s being.

Grace of compassion

If there is one authentic communication it is the grace of compassion. To reach where it truly matters In every circumstance, in every aspect of life and living deeds in compassion and kindness will always make a positive difference in a multitude of ways.

We may not know where and how but the rays travel far and wide influencing and touching many hearts.

To do good for the hurting without expectations of any kind is a sign of a compassionate soul.

GRACE IS A COMPANION TO COMPASSION…

It blesses the doers and envelops them in its infinite and abundant wings. In a jittery world filled with doubts and uncertainty, where in a state of confusion there is conflict and chaos strewn around, these angelic acts of compassion mean and matter much more than what is visible to us.

These humble acts of compassion serve as the bridge that balms the spirit of soul to heal itself. They resurrect the soul and empower the world and correct the imbalances.

Connection is the truth of our being

Our interdependence is so very strength in knowing this vulnerability … for perfection is an illusion yet all is well in perfect balance And profound and awe inspiring is this truth of nature.

Yes, often undervalued by the world for it knows not the power of such acts of grace…it is a relentless consistent work in progress by kind souls for all living beings.

A single act of Compassion has the power to change hearts, and lives. Such is the grace of compassion.

As the leaf leaves…

Sharing the poignant yet profound wisdom of these words…

*Autumn Leaf*

I asked the leaf if it was frightened because it was autumn and the other leaves were falling.

The leaf answered, “No. During the whole spring and summer I was completely alive. I worked hard to help nourish the tree, and now much of me is in the tree.

I am not limited by this form. I am also the whole tree, and when I go back to the soil, I will continue to nourish the tree. So I don’t worry at all.

As I leave this branch and float to the ground, I will wave to the tree and tell her, ‘I will see you again very soon’.”

That day a wind came blowing, and a while later, I saw the leaf leave the branch and float down to the soil, dancing joyfully, because as it floated it saw itself already there in the tree.

It was so happy. I bowed my head, knowing that I have a lot to learn from the leaf.

Nurturing nature

Nurturing aspect of nature

Is deeply embedded in its ways

When leaves dry out and fall

They are meant to nurture the earth

Nourishing it to grow again

Such is the self-sustaining ways of nature.

Nothing is wasted all is fuel to growth of another

All in the strength of interconnections in  the interdependence.




To nourish and nurture

In the circle of creation & regeneration

So much to learn of its resourcefulness

Nature nourishes and how!

We are…

We are
Grains of pulsating energy
Vibrantly dancing and emoting
In the sands of time

We are
Moving bodies reacting and responding
Patterning uniquely in every now
To the tunes of nature of life.

We are
So very fragile in the making
So very vulnerable in the sensing
Yet so very strengthened in the living.

We are
Fractals fields of energy transformation
Designing and redesigning itself
Creating purpose to life & living.

On Understanding


What you see and I see
May seem different  to the both of us
What you feel and I feel
May feel different  to the both of us
We all see and sense things
In our own unique ways
That is how we are wired.
But when we make a move
Take a step and exchange perspectives
We see, what we missed along the way
Every view is limited in its scope





Every feeling is in the sensing
Change your perspectives
And you will see so much more
Your sensing and feeling will expand
Eventually you will  make a shift
In your attitudes and alter your actions
That is what true understanding  is all about. 





Today the world needs to understand
More than ever before
What it is like  for everyone  else
What makes the world tick
What brought  us to a standstill
What we need to do from now
What can each of us change  from this now
To understand is half the battle won.

I see

A world beyond

I see

A borderless world
Overflowing abundance
In the kindness of being.
Beyond assumptions
Notions & judgments
In fear and confusion
Over man made division.
The beauty of creation
Survives the human frailties.

The world without borders
Is one of awe and intrigue
Of the alluring mystic
Of all pervading consciousness.

Of manifestations beyond compare
Of artistry beyond words
All strewn for us to sense
In the tapestry of life.

Interweaved interconnects
Unraveled in interdependence
Such is the true nature of elements
Of Creation at its best!

Art of Knowing


Taking the essence

Is a choice thats yours to take

As life provides the imagery

The experience is enriched

In the way you see it.

You are free to create your truth!

Its all but a vision board

Learn to chart your path

Knowing  what to take

And what to let go!

Make a choice

Choose well!

Are you in?

All of life
Exists in nature
And nature in life
Our life is on standstill.

Earth needs us
As much as we need it
Time to introspect
And understand
What can be done!

To nurture any life
We need to understand
What it really needs.
A flower needs water
And sunshine
To blossom.

In the understanding
Is the empathic realization
Of what is the need of the now.
This kind of perspective
Is the crucial knowledge
That can help transform lives.

Nature thrives in nurture!
Let’s take care of it with empathy.
Let’s help nurture it back to health.
Are you in?

When Love Matters Most.

LETTER FROM A MOTHER TO A DAUGHTER …

” My dear girl, the day you realize that I’m older, I ask you to be patient , but above all , try to understand what you ‘ll be passing by . When we talk , I repeat the same thing dozens of times , do not interrupt me saying : ” You said the same thing a minute ago .” Just listen , please. Try to remember the times when you were a child and I read the same story night after night until you sleep . When I do not want to bathe , do not be angry and not encabule me . Remember when you were a kid I had to run behind you making excuses and trying to put you in the bath ? When you realize you have difficulties with new technologies , give me time to learn and not look at me that way … remember, dear , how I patiently taught you many things such as eating right , getting dressed , fix your hair and give you with the problems of everyday life … the day you see that I’m older, I ask you to be patient , but above all , try to understand what you ‘ll be passing by . If I occasionally get lost in a conversation , give me time to remember and I do not, do not be nervous , impatient or arrogant . Just remember , in your heart , that the most important thing for me is to be with you . And when I grow old and my legs do not allow me to go as fast as before , give me your hand the same way that I offered him my much in its infancy . When that day comes , do not feel sad. Just stay with me and get me while I finish my life with love . I will love and thank you for the time and joy we share. With a smile and always had immense love for you, I just want to say I love you my dear daughter. “

Empathy Matters

Today’s ever changing corporate environment calls for new kinds of people management skills.
From managing teams to peoples problems and handling customer service,an empathetic approach helps create a positive difference and transform work culture.

So what is empathy after all?
Empathy is about being able to perceive and understand another’s point of view using their frame of reference.

To sense the flow of the moment with another.
To communicate with & be able to understand another’s perspectives insecurities and pain points.

Empathy is a positive approach aimed at improving teamwork and building teams , bridges gaps of communication implementing changes through appreciation, support & encouragement than unnerving others with negativity & criticism that can be rather demoralizing.

Empathy can create and build trust and rapport that you can tap into. In using empathic responses, problems can find meaningful and lasting solutions.

In using empathy with skill, you show respect & value for another.

There is a huge wave of empathy oriented approaches in businesses across the world. This is truly valuable and must be encouraged.

After all empathy is a main contender in a list of skills that show emotional intelligence quotient of an individual.

Simple truth.

There was a question asked to Ramana Maharishi
Question: What is the best way to treat others?
Ramana: There are no others.

This is the simple truth of life and living well.

If only we can see how we are but reflections of one another then a lot of discrimination will stop right then and there.

Discrimination is the root of conflict.

To think one life as above or below another creates inequalities in mutual treatment and socialization.

Remember to practice non discrimination in life and living.

Temple of being

Your body is home to life.

Treat it well.

Let life live through you

Enjoy the moments in awareness

Let your words be kind and

Let your deeds be compassionate

Allow yourself to be gentle.

Speak softly and share goodwill

You are nurturing yourself this way

Your ways will affect the energy

In and around you.

Respect the space you occupy

And value your temple of being.
