Faith is…

Faith is all there is

For without faith nothing is!

Savvy

A few more reflections…

When faith speaks it helps to listen
For faith conveys the depth of knowing
In simplest of ways.

Call it a belief in trust
Call it a feeling in the gut!
Call it a sense of intuition.
All a certain knowing in the sensing!

Flow in faith

Time evolves one and all,come what may

Yesterday’s mountains have become paths today

Love of life will show the way

As you keep building bridges not walls I say!

Power of Possibilities

 

Explore the Immense Power of Possibilities!

At times we find our road has got rough

Many times we give up when the going gets tough

At such times if we muster the strength to persevere

The very perseverance leads us to new paths

Paths we may have never accessed in the fear of trying.

To try to forge ahead in spite of hopelessness

To try to discover the power of possibilities

To try to seek the connecting dots that may have faded in time

To try to find new pathways in the making

Such is the power of life in the living.

There is always a way

To make it happen

Often enshrouded in

All we need is to see beyond the looking

Envision the potential that rests within

Trust the options we have at hand,

And lo and behold!

There is so much more than what we thought was possible.

Come let us dare to explore the power of the possibilities!

On Nurturing 5

Nurturing Hope & Care

Hope is here to stay!’

Nurturing is a life affirming process ….rooted in bettering care and creating hope for a better life. There are many experiments conducted to support how even an exposure to nature like being amidst trees and tranquil places, hearing birdsongs and watching the sky , the sea and the sand can be extremely nurturing for ones health and wellbeing. The healing element associated with nature, is in the nurture it provides to replenish the soul.

The very nature of nurturing is both very inclusive and expansive in the same breath.The scope of positive outcomes of good nurturing is deeply significant to humanity at large . For that is what is truly important to sustain our planet . Every being’s effort in nurturing the world in and around him to thrive.

At the root of Creativity is a nurtured thought process. To nurture is to nourish the being with appropriate care.
Speaking of care giving, it is often a part of nurturing which can be rather challenging to say the least. In case of elders there can be a lot of unexplained resentment the care giver has to deal with for many seniors may take a while to come to terms with the many aspects of growing old.

Patience can have its limits too and with growing intolerance in a world which is more about the sense of self importance, the need to achieve much can stifle any thoughts of pursuing time consuming and almost never ending aspects of nurturing .

It is true the world is getting a little too self centered . However the realization of the impacts of an uncaring and indifferent citizens of the world is also hitting home and that too right from the modern changes of family systems in place.

The concern for global warming and carbon imprints is touching an all time high for the world now is slowly realizing how much it needs to nurture its own living spaces to ensure it has a world left to live at all. And thus thankfully hope is here to stay!

Thriving In The Winds of Change

In a world of kneejerk reactions

And sense gratifications

It is no wonder that most of us are lost

In finding our sense of being. 

In fact this very cluelessness 

Is what the media manipulates

As we grapple with trust, faith

And a whole lot of values and emotions

That seem to get all juggled around

As per the  conveniences of the moment.

We are living in the crosswinds of time 

Where we are unable to flow in trust

As the winds of change blow hot and cold.

Life takes on a different meaning 

Sometimes in path u cant identify your being.

In such moments of chaos and confusions 

Put Your inner compass to test in trust 

It will never lead you astray!

Follow your passion…find your purpose… fulfill your presence.


The highest motivation that can change the way we behave for the better is always intrinsic than external factors. There have been many research studies conducted to find out if we are influenced to perform better consistently through a system of rewards and punishments. Humans, are found to decrease performance in tasks where there is only materialistic gain as a reward,but fare consistently better where there is autonomy & encouragement  towards a purpose. A purpose which aligns with their innate  sensibilities.


This throws the conventional and traditional approach to getting work done, up for a toss. As it is exactly opposite to the viewpoint that  humans can be manipulated to a large extent to achieve better results by the so-called carrot and stick methods .



 

In choosing to work harder at a task or a job with passion instead of needing to comply to it  lets the  being feels free enough to go beyond the box . As there is free will within  a wider net of required structure the creative potentialities are given a free play  and thus the individual moves closer to his authentic self . The joy of self-expression results in a need to share it with others out of sheer happiness .

 

Highest levels of happiness are  in giving a  larger meaning to life  whether it is in involving oneself in activities  helping another, in learning and growing with another , it could be in learning  a new  art form ,or even simply in dancing socially with a group of people , are  all wonderful for your well-being& a healthy life. Even in the simple act of volunteering towards  a good deed  from the heart,  can make one realize the true joys of sharing….and find meaning in one’s own lives .


What is that makes us love ourselves better when we give? Is it the satisfaction  in the appreciation of that which we willingly share or is it on the innate need for doing a deed with a larger good in mind. or is it in the happiness of the other that results through the actions. Whatever it may be, just remember we are truly blessed and are our most authentic self in every expansive action that we choose to do!

Travel Trails 

The Mystique of the Middle East

The mystique and majesty of Abu Dhabi is well enshrined in the beautiful exquisite and holy mosque Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Mosque in Al Mushrif, a district in Abu Dhabi the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, and is considered to be the key site for worship in the country. The design of the mosque was done by a Syrian architect named Yousef Abdelky.

Breathtaking architechture combined with amazing royal  blue lighting from the ornate  chandliers in the evening hours  gives out the feeling of heady opulence and extravagance  throughout the beautiful structure  as much as the keen sense of subtlety of approach in maintaining uniformity of designs and colour.

It is amazing to see the well maintained courtyard  with  exquiste inlay work  and the  beautiful waterbody along the pathway.



The magnificent splendour of intricate carvings  the majestic coloumns resplendent with  matching motifs  continues in the gigantic green carpet splayed across the entire inner sanctum.

A visual treat no doubt but the sense of symmetry is almost meditative.. Walking along through the gilded coloumns corridors is a beautiful and zen like experience in itself.

The magnanimity of  the silence space is almost alluring as much as the effects of the beautiful lighting  throughout the interiors as much as the exteriors of the mosque .

What distinguishes  these motifs of Islamic architecture are the use of coloumns, piers and arches organized and interwoven with alternating sequences and use of fractal patterns and repetitive radiating structures.
Standing there at dusk witnessing the beautiful moonlit sky and our dancing reflections in the azure blue waters of the pool of water in this  magnanimous shrine one could  feel totally inspired in even simply visiting it once for this mosque is certainly a masterpiece of Islamic architechture. 

Much gratitude to my dear brother in law and family in Dubai who  offered to drive us from Dubai to visit to this grand mosque.  Certainly a trip to Abu Dhabi would be incomplete without visiting this beautiful Shrine! 

Every shrine is filled with a vibration that is unique to the place be it a mosque synagogue a church or a temple … for the  convergence of  countless positive intentions energizes the space filling us with a deep sense of peace and serenity.
