On Caring

1bc1cf7

The motto …”Behave with others as you would want them behave with you ”is a great way to live life developing a reflective and compassionate attitude and is essential to evolving in the being. The very purpose of life’s experiences is to transform for the better, however our perspectives are often the manifest of our experiences…

A strong focus towards career and finances is no doubt important as well as necessary for life but extending beyond the self is about caring to see beyond the illusions of limited existence.

Every birth is a manifestation of hope love and care for life itself. To live denying it with overtly materialistic motives amounts to nothing at all … as in the end none can ever carry their hoardings and ferry it across. Materialistic life must give way to a more meaningful existence… that’s the way of life as it goes.

The most successful people on earth care about their journey than just the incentives…they enjoy their learning and sharing despite their obstacles because they look out to adding meaning to their lives.

As we respect life and value it enough to care for it , gradually there is the realization that we are never alone .. and that being self centered never works.

Remember…

Life is meant to be lived with love and care not just to exist.

On Thinking Thoughts


Thinking is open to possibilities
Thought is already channelled
To be fair and square
Thinking is about the now
Emerging in this moment.


Thought is the past
Over and done.

Yet every thought matters
As it may enable new ways of thinking…
And so it goes




Until these loops form a pattern
And hit a sweet spot of light
Illuminating a new path way!

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  matter of food and food matters much.

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.

Gift of intuition

Grateful to intuit.
For the answers tumble through you
The path breaks through in the trusting
Until the way becomes you.

A sense of intuition is a gift
We all have it within us
Sometimes it propels you to it gently.
At other times it compels you to conform.


A substantial force in subtlety of being.
It is our spirit guide that moves with us
Follows through in ways we cannot  fathom
In a knowing (in the gut) of wisdom across lifelines beyond lifetimes.

What matters most is our tuning inward To our well of wisdom in the listening.
Thankful for the master guide within.
In deep gratitude  for this gift in the journey of life.

Soulful Expressions




Expression is our birthright It makes us who we are…

In being able to move without fear or favour,

The life manifesting through us,

Art speaks from the heart of our soul.

Bringing forth our soulful expressions.

On Education

In continuation to my earlier post on Holistic education. I came across this poignant post and I heartfully share this wonderful initiative and reflections.

ATTENTION ALL TEACHERS AND PARENTS

Every Friday afternoon Chase’s teacher asks her students to take out a piece of paper and write down the names of four children with whom they’d like to sit the following week. The children know that these requests may or may not be honored. She also asks the students to nominate one student whom they believe has been an exceptional classroom citizen that week. All ballots are privately submitted to her.

And every single Friday afternoon, after the students go home, Chase’s teacher takes out those slips of paper, places them in front of her and studies them. She looks for patterns.

Who is not getting requested by anyone else?
Who doesn’t even know who to request?
Who never gets noticed enough to be nominated?
Who had a million friends last week and none this week?

You see, Chase’s teacher is not looking for a new seating chart or “exceptional citizens.” Chase’s teacher is looking for lonely children. She’s looking for children who are struggling to connect with other children. She’s identifying the little ones who are falling through the cracks of the class’s social life. She is discovering whose gifts are going unnoticed by their peers. And she’s pinning down- right away- who’s being bullied and who is doing the bullying.

As a teacher, parent, and lover of all children – I think that this is the most brilliant Love Ninja strategy I have ever encountered. It’s like taking an X-ray of a classroom to see beneath the surface of things and into the hearts of students. It is like mining for gold – the gold being those little ones who need a little help – who need adults to step in and TEACH them how to make friends, how to ask others to play, how to join a group, or how to share their gifts with others. And it’s a bully deterrent because every teacher knows that bullying usually happens outside of her eyeshot – and that often kids being bullied are too intimidated to share. But as she said – the truth comes out on those safe, private, little sheets of paper.

As Chase’s teacher explained this simple, ingenious idea – I stared at her with my mouth hanging open. “How long have you been using this system?” I said.
Ever since Columbine, she said. Every single Friday afternoon since Columbine.

Good Lord.

This brilliant woman watched Columbine knowing that ALL VIOLENCE BEGINS WITH DISCONNECTION. All outward violence begins as inner loneliness. She watched that tragedy KNOWING that children who aren’t being noticed will eventually resort to being noticed by any means necessary.

And so she decided to start fighting violence early and often, and with the world within her reach. What Chase’s teacher is doing when she sits in her empty classroom studying those lists written with shaky 11 year old hands – is SAVING LIVES. I am convinced of it. She is saving lives.

And what this mathematician has learned while using this system is something she really already knew: that everything – even love, even belonging – has a pattern to it. And she finds those patterns through those lists – she breaks the codes of disconnection. And then she gets lonely kids the help they need. It’s math to her. It’s MATH.

All is love- even math. Amazing.

Chase’s teacher retires this year – after decades of saving lives. What a way to spend a life: looking for patterns of love and loneliness. Stepping in, every single day- and altering the trajectory of our world.

TEACH ON, WARRIORS. You are the first responders, the front line, the disconnection detectives, and the best and ONLY hope we’ve got for a better world. What you do in those classrooms when no one is watching- it’s our best hope. http://momastery.com/blog/2014/01/30/share-schools/
