Art of Shoshin

Art of Shoshin

Helps in honing the ability

To see the world with fresh eyes

Staying curious in awe and wonder

Letting  go of unnecessary perceptions

That can cloud the clarity.

When you choose

An open mind

Without assumptions

And pre conceived notions

Without pride or prejudice

No matter who you are

What you have,

Or how much you know…

You are present

You are receptive

And welcoming of perspectives

To explore infinite possibilities

Of the potential now.

Wisdom in the living

In the living is the learning

As knowledge builds its foundation

Life keeps changing its path

In the living is the acknowledging

Of the unknown truths of life & living.

In the living is adaptability

To the changing tides in time

In the living is the sensing

Of what makes life worth living

In the living is the engagements

To living life to its fullest potential

And therein is the wisdom from living.

On living life lovingly…

Life life Lovingly!

Someone asked me what advice would I share with my child…

I would simply share the below two pieces of advice that I came across, not only with my child, but to anyone who cares to follow.

As it will go a long way in the journey of life .

Two simple
formula of life

“Don’t make any
close relation
without full understanding…!

And don’t break
any close relation
with small misunderstanding..

Very thoughtfully said!

Life is beautiful in consideration & responses than kneejerk reactions.

Life is all about taking time to live and love but also to understand.

Life is precious and every relationship has a reason to be. Even if it’s just for a season it is meant to last its time.

Let’s never forget that…

So let’s value life, value relationships

And live life lovingly!!

A Matter Of Thought

They say it’s what you do that matters

But it’s the thought that counts

Can we choose one thought over other

Yes we can in mindfulness

Being aware is the first step

The choice rests with you

For you are your thoughts

As much as your deeds .

On Leadership

If you are a leader…

Credit your teams wins to them
Celebrate their individual wins
Appreciate their work
Acknowledge their perseverance
Applaud their dedication
Empathize with them by listening well.
Encourage their efforts with training
Reward them with recognition.
Value their perspectives
Be a guide so they can follow
For without a follower there is no leader.

Feel the peace within

Take a deep breath

To truly be able…

To Breathe in ease

feel the peace deep within.

Take not this breath for granted

Know the gift of grace in every breath.

Inhale and exhale

Sensing Gratitude in every breath

Choice rests with you!

Every now presents you with a choice

To be & do what you can

Every moment is full of potential

To engage with possibilities

Truly there is much more beyond

To know and understand

Every thing begins with a choice

And the choice rests with you.

A Sufi Tale

A Sufi Tale:
A merchant from Baghdad entered a Sufi’s shop, which had essence jars on the shelves.
Marveling at the beauty of the place, he asked, “Sir, what is sold here?”
The Sufi replied, “The gifts of God”.

The merchant was surprised with the answer, & asked, “And how much do they cost?”
“Nothing, here all is for free”, said the Sufi, observing carefully, that the traveller could see the labels: “Jugs of Love”; “Jars of Faith”; “Packages of Hope”.

The merchant said, “A big jug of love, all the packages of hope & three jars of faith for me, my friends & my family”.

The Sufi carefully prepared the order & handed him a small box.
Surprised, the merchant exclaimed, “But, but…. how can everything I have asked for, be in this tiny box?”

Smiling, the Sufi replied, “In God’s store, we do not sell fruits, only seeds. You have to sow them.

Being Light

Dance you heart out

Walk your worries away

Talk to lighten the load

Breathe easy

Sleep well

Take on only what you can,

Have and appreciate good memories

Express love and love yourself

Take note of the good always.

Couldn’t agree more…

To be able to let go is to live life lightly.

What about you?

Do you have anything to add to this list

Finding Time

Ultimately it all about finding time

For a…

A little laughter to keep you light

A little kindness along the way

A little walk for your good health

A little whiff of fragrance divine

A little tune to hum through the day

A little step to carry it through

A little tap down the memory lane

All to align you to your happiest self

The way…

Love is the way

For all of us

As each of us matters

Somehow somewhere

We are all connected

In the infinite plan

And each of us

Needs to become responsible

To make a meaningful difference

For life to thrive than just survive

We need to be respectful

Towards each other

To gain the trust & faith

That makes the world

A better place to live in

For all of us

Love is the way

A Space of Calm Where the Soul Thrives.

Amidst the flurry of thoughts

There is a space in the sensing

That heals the hurt and embalms

The spirit of the soul

To recover and rejuvenate

In this invisible space is the secret

Of knowing there is always an answer

To every doubt and confusion

In this space is a silent knowing

Of serenity of wisdom

In hope beyond the reigning chaos

All things happen in good time

Is knowing the power of patience

And the strength of good faith.

There is every reason to believe

In this space, our soul thrives.

Evolving with the changes

Change is inevitable, but you are the one in charge of how the change impacts you and how you respond to the changes.

Dare to dance with it! Dance with life!

In this now

We all want to be in the safe zone for ourselves and others.
Let us be mindful in this now and practice sanitation protocols to the best of our abilities from wherever we are.
But we also need to be empathically aware of the many who are doing their best to save lives.
Salute to all the selfless souls.

God be the protective shield of all the frontliners of the health, sanitation, essential services and many invisible heroes who are doing their best in spite of all odds. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Create the possibility

It’s possible

They say…

What one sees as the end

Another sees a beginning

An attitude of positivity

Can change the world around.

To be able to believe & hope

Is the beginning of positive change.

So in possibilities of the potential

Take a leap of faith in trust

And simply know It’s possible.

Create the possibility!
