One moment to the next

To stay centered in equanimity

Is to be aware of the self in this now

Are we present in the moment?

Are we staying calm to understand

Change is the only constant…

The so called high tides, give in only to recede in time.

The dunes speak of sifting sands of time

Where there were mountains there are plains today…

What seems impossible becomes possible in time.

All is meant to move on

Problems well they come and go

Nothing lasts forever

That is why life is so precious

And every moment must be well lived.

From one moment to next!

Game of Life…

Nicely penned by someone……

I watched a local football match in a school playing ground.

As I sat down, I asked one of the boys what the score was.

With a smile, he replied; they are leading us 3-0.

And I said, REALLY.

I have to say you don’t look discouraged.

“Discouraged” the boy asked with a puzzled look.

Why should I be discouraged when the referee has not blown the final whistle.

I have confidence in the team and the managers; we shall definitely overcome.

Truly, the match ended 5-4 in favor of the boy’s team.

He waved at me gently, with a beautiful smile as he left; I was amazed, mouth wide open; Such confidence; Such beautiful faith.

As I got back home that night, his question kept coming back to me –
…..
Why should I be discouraged when the referee has not blown the final whistle.

Life is like a game….

Why be discouraged, when there is still life.

Why be discouraged when your final whistle has not sounded.

The truth is that many people blow the final whistle themselves….

But as long as there is life, nothing is impossible and it is never too late for you.

Half time is not full time…..

Don’t blow the whistle yourself…..😊

Are you your own friend?

A true friend is there to support you if you fall.

Allow space for you to grow

Cheer you along the way

Take interest in your journey

Mean well for you

Stop you from self harm

Believe in you without a doubt

Yet dare to tell the truth to you.

Be with you so you are never alone.

Now think about it…

Are you your own best friend ?

To all the dancers

To all the dancers and those who choose to waltz with life….

As dancers we are a lucky lot!
We are totally able to dance with time…
Move with it on time,
Or take the offbeat road to reverse and revel the joy of reflections in the rivers of time.

On Acceptance

The Road to Acceptance has many challenges in the learnings… not often easy, but certainly transforming in one way or the other.

Like there are many aspects to understanding
In acceptance there are many perspectives
Acceptance is not giving up or being in the same place.
To me a practice of acceptance is an ability to respect the now and in turn acknowledge the transient nature of everything.
To accept then is to be able to have a feel or a vision of the situation as it is experienced in the now.

The Paradox of acceptance is being defenseless to yin and yangs of life and living. Yet to envision that acceptance comes from a place of strength, is to be able to understand that we are not one entity but made of many parts that matter to the whole.
So the stance of acceptance is about flow & movements in the stillness , in hope to evolve in time along with the changes.

Smile & the world smiles…

I particularly liked this quote I came across recently…

“Smile more than you cry, Give more than you take, and Love more than you Hate.”
– Drake

A beautiful way to be! Nicely summarized.

Will simply add…

In Laughter you nourish yourself

In Generosity you replenish your world .

In love you nurture, nature in and around you!

Power of Faith





Behind the smile is the hidden strength

Behind the gentleness is steel in spirit.

The spirit is strengthened in the living.

In depth of  love comes the strength

In loving deeply is the courage to dare

Against all odds.

Such is the might of the warrior  within…

Inner faith can move mountains.

Live life lovingly!




Love life
Intend well
To manifest
Your true potential in time.
It is the way of creation
You are a precious manifestation
Of this universe.

Trust the living you
Keep the faith
For without faith nothing is
Believe you can
For you are enough for you!

“Time moves on endlessly
In every moment  that moves into the  other
Care to keep the cheer and flow in faith seamlessly.”

Live life lovingly!

In The Lightness of being.


There are few gifts
Of life in the living
Like joy of laughter
Like the happiness of smiles
Like the sharing of loving kindness
Like sensing of gratitude


They add to your life
They heal your being
Body mind and Soul.
The more you have it
And live expressing it 
The better the health of your heart.

A good thought
A good deed
A good laugh
And all is well
In the lightness of being.

Sensing my share of these gifts.
Are you?

Sail through life

Sail through life
Steering away from density
Be in the moment.
Live fully.

Rest easy sleep well
Be generous be mindful
Let your moves be wise
Choose well.
Be safe than sorry!

Let your boat of life be light
Burden it not by overloading
For it gets difficult to carry
The weight of your burdens
Be light and sail on
In the lightness of being.

Happiness





Why search for joy
When you have it all
You have power to create it
It rests with you.
Sense it in your heart
Express it with your smile.






If you ever feel unhappy
If ever you sense worry
If ever your sense of smell
Derails you and you feel lost
In a maze of confusion.




Relax and just put a hand on your heart
Know you have it all within.
For the way of heart is love
It will guide you back to joy!



A gentle reminder
To me and you
To smile from the heart.
And Live life lovingly!

Life and living




The Isha Upanishad (ईशोपनिषद्, ‘īśopaniṣad’) is one of the shortest of the Upanishads, in form more like a brief poem than a philosophical treatise, consisting of 17 or 18 verses in total. The Upanishad constitutes the final chapter (adhyāya) of the Shukla Yajurveda and survives in two versions, called Kanva (VSK) and Madhyandina (VSM).

The Isha Upanishad is significant for its description of the nature of the “Supreme Being”, exhibiting monism or a form of monotheism, referred to as Isha “Lord”. It describes this being as “unembodied, omniscient, beyond reproach, without veins, pure and uncontaminated” (verse 8), one who “moves and does not move’, who is ‘far away, but very near as well'” and who “although fixed in abode is swifter than the mind” (verses 4 & 5).

The first verse of the text has been cited as of particular importance to Vedanta or to Hinduism as a whole.

The first verse reads:

īśā vāsyam idaṃ sarvaṃ ¦ yat kiñca jagatyāṃ jagat |
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā ¦ mā gṛdhaḥ kasya sviddhanam ||

literal translation (Ralph T.H. Griffith, 1899):

“Enveloped by the Lord must be This All — each thing that moves on earth.
With that renounced enjoy thyself. Covet no wealth of anyone

Simply  profound verses.

All The Truths of  living  life in this ephemeral world  is contained  in those lines.


Sharing a few more musings by my mother on the same lines.

Whatever is available to you in this world, learn to enjoy without the feeling of possession.

You are one among the many in line. Take care while it is with you without owning it.
