On Success

You create the state of success
And you never rest on your success
Success is in the courage to continue
Your perseverance, your passion and purpose.
Success is consistently inconsiderate
Success demands much focus
as it supplies momentum
Beyond self limitations and doubts.
True success is the knowing
In your heart of contentment
Of a life well lived and loved.

Success is who you are
Success is in each of us
Awaiting a discovery
An unearthing of potential
To sense life’s possibilities
If you believe your abilities,
trust your instincts and
give it your best shot,
Success is sure to follow.

Life & Living

Yesterday afternoon I visited the local Crosswords book shop and spent time browsing through some amazing books.
I was so enjoying my Sunday me time that I hardly realized how the day had turned to late evening as I stepped out. 
Walking down an aisle of steps my eyes fell on a very poignant sight. There was this little boy with a little basket, sitting by a busy street selling the very colorful & delicious Java/blackplum called Jamun in India.


He looked no older than 6 or 7 years. But there he was confidently telling me a price. I went near him, to pick up some myself, but realized his entire basket was really ripe and ready. I watched how he had a little steel glass by which he measured and gave me the quantity I asked for. 

I watched his tiny hands at work and I thought  to myself this little  boy should be holding a book to read or write and here was this child ,selling fruits.


I struck a little conversation asking him if he goes to school, he said the last few years there has been no school, although he likes to study but now he is helping him family this way and this is fun too! There was something in the way he said it, that my heart warmed up to him.


Yes he is right, the school of life has a lesson for each of us at every turn.
If we choose to see it so.

Although fate has ordained his life to be so in this now, I blessed him silently from my heart for a better life in time.
I salute the little  boy’s budding entrepreneurial spirit.

💙🙏💙

Walk for Wellness

▪️

Informative share

Interestingly , 50% of a person’s bones & 50% of the muscles, are in the two legs.
Do walk

▪️The largest & strongest joints & bones of the human body are also in the legs.
3-7k steps / day

▪️Strong bones, strong muscles and flexible joints form the Iron Triangle that carries the most important load i.e. the human body.”

▪️70% of human activity and burning of energy in one’s life is done by the two feet.

▪️Do you know this ? When a person is young, his/ her thighs have enough strength , to lift a small car of 800 kg !

▪️The foot is the center of body locomotion.

▪️Both the legs together have 50% of the nerves of the human body, 50% of the blood vessels and 50% of the blood is flowing through them.

▪️ It is the largest circulatory network that connects the body.
So walk daily.

▪️Only when the feet are healthy then the convention current of blood flows , smoothly, so people who have strong leg muscles will definitely have a strong heart. Walk.

▪️Aging starts from the feet upwards

▪️As a person gets older, the accuracy & speed of transmission of instructions between the brain and the legs decreases, unlike when a person is young. Please walk

▪️In addition, the so-called Bone Fertilizer Calcium will sooner or later be lost with the passage of time, making the elderly more prone to bone fractures. WALK.

▪️Bone fractures in the elderly can easily trigger a series of complications, especially fatal diseases such as brain thrombosis.

▪️Do you know that 15% of elderly patients generally, will die max. within a year of a thigh-bone fracture !! Walk daily without fail

▪️ Exercising the legs, is never too late, even after the age of 60 years.

▪️Although our feet/legs will gradually age with time, exercising our feet/ legs is a life-long task.
Walk 3000-7000 steps

▪️Only by regular strengthening the legs, one can prevent or reduce further aging. Walk 365 days

▪️ Please walk for at least 30-40 minutes daily to ensure that your legs receive sufficient exercise and to ensure that your leg muscles remain healthy.

Do share this valuable information with all your friends & family members, as everyone is ageing on a daily basis…

It sure is a long kiss to goodnight .

Trust…

There are summers, full of fun

And more spring times, to come.

There is the beauty of mountains to envision

And snow times to chill…
Our days are yet to unravel

Countless sights of beautý to savour

Evenings to dance to some great country music.

And there is the beckonning of starry nights yet to behold …
While there will be days of thunder and lightning.

Till the storms pass on and the sun is shining

It is truly amazing when the simple love for life

And a lttle bit of hope pulls us through …

So its truly a long kiss to goodnight.

When heart speaks the world hums along…

Positively speaking.

Whether it is today, in these times of uncertainty or other… a positive approach to life and living is deeply rewarding.

This is indeed wonderful as an attitude to cultivate towards living life. Being positively enriching & encouraging is truly the best way to help make a difference.

But the trick is in fine balancing the emotions that manifest along the way.

Embodied Practice of Empathy

When you practice sharing positive vibes consistently, you are putting a lot of hope and faith out in the world.

Yet you need to be empathic to yourself, care to understand your own emotions as well, by accepting and acknowledging them, without getting embroiled in them .

Make sure to acknowledge what is happening with your own life.

Speak from the heart.

All that is happening in the world today can be disheartening . So when you are out, sharing positive vibes make sure that you are internalizing them too. Sustaining a spirit of hopefulness is the key driver for a positive mindset . The world needs doses of positive attitude in thoughts words and deeds.

Authenticity of Attitude.

Making sure to feel from your own heart before you share these words of hope is a worthy practice to adopt.

Whatever said or written,words are mere words But when you begin to respect and respond to the emotions sensed in the feelings that arise you begin to see the world in its most vulnerable state.

When heart speaks the world hums along…

On Self Care & Compassion

A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day.
A string of such moments can change the course of your life.”
– Chris Gerner

Truth is Power

The power is in the truth

Where truth is nothing dares

Such is the nature of truth

That whatever ways it is submerged

It always gets unearthed

And yet interestingly its often said…

The opposite of the great truth

Is also truth!

Such is the circle of life.

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.

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.

On Adapting


Every time you find yourself
In a bit of a tussle
You need to adapt to the situation

A little bit of flexibility
Goes a long way
Where you bend but do not break.


Like the reed of grass
That bows down with grace
In the wind of changes.

Like water that flows to fit in
Until it shapes unto & settles itself
Like a lithe cat that braces itself in a fall.


This ability  to turn adversity
On its toes and dance with it
Is a valuable  lifeskill.

This quality of adaptability
The way you adapt, adjust or modify
Says much about you as a person.


It speaks of your capacity
To be receptive to new ideas
And new ways of thinking

To step out of the box.
And perceive with fresh eyes.
Without prejudice.

To understand what is feasible
To be willing to respond  than react
To the changes, in flexibility.



And the ability to be non judgmental
Speaks of your unflappable nature.

In responding with composure.

Adaptability is a necessary skill
To overcome any situation in life
To adapt is to survive.

Call from the Heart ❤



Have you ever wondered
About things that beckon you
Of things that speak to you
To your mind and heart
Infact to all of you
Like no other!

Have you sensed your calling
In all those deeds that move your soul
To act beyond yourself!
It is Your purpose of  being
That beckons you to reach out
And do more than ever before

Let your heart speak  to you
Listen and persevere
In the pursuit  of your passion
For it leads you to your destination.
Listen to the call of your heart ❤

The trangression

Recently a reader mentioned he was stymied…
By the following line in one of my previous post
‘Covet not what you cannot share.’

Let me explain..

The very act of coveting
Is yearning to possess
That which does not belong
Act of possession is not love

True love is about freedom
Every person has both
Freedom and limitations Such is the law of nature.

When man unknowingly
Or knowingly covets beyond
Nature is displaced and broken
Then energies shift

And all hell breaks loose
Every word spoken or written
Can effect someone somewhere
So important to know
And discern with care
Else all the wisdom of life
Becomes meaningless.

Living your truths is fine
As long as you don’t impinge others
As long as you respect life
Around you to have theirs.
Share your truths if you wish
But do not share what is not yours.

For that is an act of trangression
A violation of natures
Code of conduct!
