On Empathy

Life Skills: Empathy Education


Life with all its complexities and contrasts creates a necessity to chalk out ways to make young impressionable minds better equipped to handle its exigencies. Holistic education is so much about grounding in connectedness as much as it is about intuitive understanding that, harmony in the mind body connection is a way of life and living.

An education in empathic behavior becomes paramount in a materialistic world. A lot of misconception about empathy needs clarification.

Empathy is seeing with another, listening to another acknowledging them as they are, in a nonjudgmental space and being with another sensing the feelings and caring to reach out with support through words action and deeds …

Empathy can be sensed in a touch a nod or a smile or in the simplicity of silence, doing nothing but just being there ….

Empathy is a sharing, a feeling, a bonding, a being, a seeing, a sensing, a trusting and believing in hope, in faith, in life and grace.

Empathy is about caring, as a way of being. Empathy is not always about bearing the suffering and sensing another’s pain or being in a state of sorrow or pain. There can arise great empathy when dancing together or in a classroom environment where the teacher feels one with the student’s frame of mind and speaks to address that … or hearing or performing a song or play together with unbridled sense of bonding and enthusiasm. This empathy can be reflected time and time again in striving to consciously stay aware of the mutually creative fulfillment it brings to our lives. Positive benefits of empathy can become a mirror to gradually inducing greater empathic behavior in our lives towards ourselves and others.

Our movements have the power to change our moods, as much as our thoughts can bring a change in our way of being. It doesn’t matter who believes in your empathic way of life, what matters is you believe in it yourself. And that is the first step in making a positive difference. When there is an empathy in action, it is mirrored in our minds to create, generate loving and caring thoughts as a response to the action.

Every empathic thought finds its way into expression thoughts words or deeds creatively. With increasing empathic thought and action there is unknowingly a connectedness, valuing the interdependence in this web of life and living as a way of being.

All is well.

We are living  in a world  rushed for time. People hurry and scurry through the day.

What we see in others is a part of us too reflected through them, when we are accepting of that part and able to respect it just as much as ourselves , we create all that we need to see at that moment .

Some very basic humane abilities are necessary in our journey in life.

To listen to understand, to connect, to acknowledge, to emphasize, to sense gratitude, to share happiness, and care for another as much as for ourselves.

Much of the world’s issues may find solace & resolutions in simply caring  to be present in the moment.

In these abilities lies the truth of nature in its magnanimity and abundance in every moment.

And All is truly well.

Truth speak

Time for Humans to meet humanity

For the stakes are too precarious

Time for relentless introspection

And unbiased reality checks.

On what is reversible or lost

Nature of nature is balance

With no prejudiced judgments

Time to undo the wrongs.

Blunders of ours that earth bares

Learn from the mistakes

And reform our ways of life

Attuning with nature

To coexist by course corrections

Save ourselves from extinction

Survive the odds of own doing

Undoing the errors of generations.

Recycle Reduce Reuse earths gifts

Empathize, Humanize living life

Resurrect what can be rectified

From the brink of man-made chaos.

All for the future of this present

For this beautiful ball of blue

Is the only one we have in this now!

Breakthrough!

ImageCredit to unknown photographer

Strength in the grounding

Here is a truly powerful image

Speaking volumes without a word.

Depicting the power of nature

Breaking through a rock…

Life cannot be undermined

It finds a way to flourish

Nature has a way of nurturing itself

To survive against all odds.

The strength of the spirit

The intention of the soul

Courses through its veins

Until it finds a path to grow

Rooting itself steadfastly

Its grounding is its strength

Nourishing the life

To stay centered .

And grow it does and how…

Spring through summer

Come rain or shine

No autumn can last too long …

As that seemingly leafless tree

Springs forth a hopeful bloom

Sharing the fruits of life and living.

As the seasons change….

Breakthrough are a way of being

Course correcting itself no matter

Finding its bearing in full bloom

Nature is meant to thrive!

One Tree

I came across this photo

And I think to myself

How insignificantly we think

Of nature, of every life form

Just because of plenitude

But the very same attitude

Changes completely in scarcity

A reality byte indeed

Gratitude to Nature

And its myriad manifestation

Let’s acknowledge the power of one

One Tree 🌳

One life to touch another

In a multitude of ways…

And create a positive difference

Endless opportunities and possibilities …

Circles of Energy

Every soul emits the energy
Of the wisdom of times
Lived living and in between
Myriad reflections of mind
Consciousness of the heart
And in character of the being

Embodiment of the ego in its essence
Humbled by life time and time again

Until the ancient soul find its own path
Of balancing witness and action.
Sensing the truth of its own being.

On Giving





We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” – Mother Teresa


Love these words by Mother Teresa, a kind soul that showed the way of kindness in giving.

Every single selfless act in devotion leaves the world feeling a little better than before…

Yes there is much to do
To make our world better
There is so much left to improve
Sometimes we are full of doubts
About can we ever do enough
Is what we share  or do,  right at all?






No matter the doubts  simply share
With all your heart ❤
You are meant to do much, much more
Than what you can even imagine.
You will find yourself along the way.
Share your gifts with joy in giving.
And fulfil your purpose of being.

Envisioning Beyond Labels



In every experience there is always learning
To move beyond the apparent
Every concept is potential  in possibilities
Such is life and creativity
It is the way of nature in abundance…


To be able to see the bigger picture
To see beyond the niggling bits
And envision the larger good
Is the need of the hour. 


So much of time, earth has borne
The onslaught of man and his needs
But its time to think beyond the self
And move beyond  being bound by labels.


Find ways together and seek
Solutions than problems.
For truly we are so much more
Than the way we label ourselves…

LETS MOVE BEYOND LABELS
& KNOW THE POWER OF OUR BEING.

Heart of Love





In the spectrum of emotions
Love and hate are at opposite ends.
Yet often find itself  juxtaposed.

Love flows through
Hate constricts life.
Love is transcendence.
In evolved consciousness.
While hate scars the soul
Love heals and renews the spirit ❤

When love finds its bearings…
It takes wings and charts its course
Patterning itself in the flow
And leaves healing imprints forever
In the river of eternal time.

You have this now
Make it beautifulYou have it all in you…Love your life
Live life lovingly!

Gods Gift



Every moment  in time
Is a gift of God.
In both the so called
Good and bad







The easy and difficult times
There is always  a learning
To sense and understand
To evolve along the path.






Yet I am a lover of the mornings…

It gives me hope to look forward  to
No matter the darkness of the night.
One more chance  to make life better
To share and create
To heal and to help another
There is a beauty in every dawn
The way the sun rises every  day
The way the darkness gives in to light

I am more me in the mornings
I enjoy the waking moments unhurried
I revel in the  now in the  bliss of bless
I witness the dance of light at dawn
As the sun beams its rays across
As earth awakens itself from slumber



The chirping birds fill me with joy
Its not noise to me, its a song
Of  motivation and energy
To carry on through the day.
Mornings share hope for the day
Do give yourself  an early start
Make mornings work for you
Bask in the grace of light.

The Synergy of the sun is upon you!


Know the mornings after a rested night
Are specially conducive to invoke
Your creativity in the things you do
So write create draw paint sing & dance.

Sleep not the mornings away.
What a waste of life’s inspiration  it would  be
Remember…
Every morning  is a gift to yourself
To unbox and release  hope some more.
