Nurturing nature

Nurturing aspect of nature

Is deeply embedded in its ways

When leaves dry out and fall

They are meant to nurture the earth

Nourishing it to grow again

Such is the self-sustaining ways of nature.

Nothing is wasted all is fuel to growth of another

All in the strength of interconnections in  the interdependence.




To nourish and nurture

In the circle of creation & regeneration

So much to learn of its resourcefulness

Nature nourishes and how!

Learning from a free spirit



Today I write about my dear and very loving father…

Perhaps the most uncomplicated man.

A paragon of the free spiritedness of a child.

He has an uncanny ability to be happy like a child.

What he desires are little things like a child.

Yes, he knows how to get what he  desires

But the happiness he feels & expresses, in the most ordinary things

That is his blessing of simplicity.


Life can be an epitome of adventure and adaptability.

It can challenge you & test your resilience & reserves

But to be able to be in touch with the inner child in you.

No matter how  life takes its toll on you

Is the strength in the vulnerability.



I dedicate these musings today to my eternally ‘young at heart’ father.

For from him, I have imbibed many beautiful learnings
Will share three, especially relevant here…

  • To be able to find happiness in the ordinary things.
  • To be able to stay hopeful, light & positive, no matter the density in the moment.
  • To think well of all and make way for happy thoughts and share goodwill.

  • God Bless You Dad!

    Circle of life & living





    Life and businesses

    Circle of life and living
    Nature leaves many lessons
    The falling  leaves
    Are an excellent metaphor…

    Learning to let go
    In  hope, trust and faith
    Of the balance the circle
    Is an indicator of the adaptability.


    Business is a big leap of faith
    In every business
    That has thrived  and survive
    Inspite of the changing seasons.



    Seeds to a plant
    Plant to a tree
    Trees begin maturing
    Like life is meant to flow….

    Buisness too are meant to grow
    As the processes are strengthened
    Nourishing &nurturing the foundation
    Harnessing synergies  in the energies.




    There is growth in the momentum.
    There are dependences and beliefs
    But like the nature of life
    Old has to make space for the new…



    To flourish and sustain
    The seasonal setbacks
    And survive the storms
    In the winds of changes.






    In the blooming and blossoming
    There in is the budding of new ideas
    Like ideas that flow by nurturing
    Life is meant to flow…by nature
    Such is the circle of life and living.


    These verses came forth after reading  a very thoughtful share by my dear friend @Ali Anani , who mentioned rightly so that the post might be of interest  to me…. so to him  dedicate this post in gratitude 🙏

    ARTISTRY OF CREATIVITY …

    Sharing one of my musings written  way back in time… came across it in my feeds.



    To me what is fascinating about the Artistry
    in the artist is the path he chooses
    to channelizes his Creativity .. ‘

    Every artist is unique ….

    Working in tandem with his own techinque

    Every stroke of the brush guided in the silence of a visual imagery

    Marks the stark passion in the heart of divinity

    Sculpting and painting the patterns with conviction

    With personal care beyond concern or consternation

    Blending in the tones and .. while sketching a grass blade

    Molding to the hues in every shade ….

    Life is a canvas colorful or otherwise

    Care to see the value beyond the price…

    We are…

    We are
    Grains of pulsating energy
    Vibrantly dancing and emoting
    In the sands of time

    We are
    Moving bodies reacting and responding
    Patterning uniquely in every now
    To the tunes of nature of life.

    We are
    So very fragile in the making
    So very vulnerable in the sensing
    Yet so very strengthened in the living.

    We are
    Fractals fields of energy transformation
    Designing and redesigning itself
    Creating purpose to life & living.

    Take A Step





    Take a Step..

    To start is is most difficult
    The first step is often a challenge
    And then some more
    Follows through
    And suddenly it appears
    A pathway
    A breakthrough
    A perspective to aspire
    And a renewed focus develops
    Towards a goal.


    So take the step
    The first step
    Start even if its a single step
    Keep it simple
    And in no time
    You will have started on a journey
    Towards your purpose of being.


    After all
    Success too is a series of steps
    That starts with taking a step.

    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!

    Exploring Interconnects

    A lot of times Efficacy and Effectiveness are interchangeably used while speaking….

    It is interesting to delve into the interconnects between these two words.

    Efficacy is about a structured metric.

    Efficacy can be situation specific.

    Effectiveness is the about capacity to perform.
    Effectiveness is effectual result specific.

    And Efficacy is the measure of being effective.

    What are your thoughts on these two words? Do share.

    Ascension Plan

    Aim high

    Take flight

    Who cannot be with you

    Will move on their way

    Keep perseverance alive

    Stay passionate in pursuit

    Have dreams and intentions

    Aspire to inspire

    That is your ascension plan.

    Sharing a story that I came acros…

    The Eagle and the Crow
    ===================

    The only bird that dares to peck an eagle is the crow. He sits on his back and bites his neck. The eagle does not respond, nor fight with the crow. It does not spend time or energy on the crow.

    It just opens its wings and begins to rise higher in the heavens. The higher the flight, the harder it is for the crow to breathe and then the crow falls due to lack of oxygen.

    Learn from the eagle and don’t fight the crows. Just keep ascending. They might be along for the ride, but they’ll fall off.

    Always have an Ascension Plan.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Take what you need

    Love and hope to bridge the divide

    Faith and patience to move beyond

    Courage and understanding to dare

    Peace and passion to create some more

    Healing and strength to help yourself

    Beauty and freedom to enjoy this now!

    Take what you need

    But always remember….

    Wiser to take that which we feel we really need this moment and maintain the state of positive abundance for others too.

    After all there is so much good within all already. So simply take what you really need.

    Pools of Perception

    Where there is a pool
    There are ripples
    Each creating a pattern
    Of its own making.

    Creating chaos
    Creating Confusion
    Stay patient keep calm
    Trust in time.

    Clarity arrives in time .
    When the ripples settle
    Everything is seen
    Envisioned ‘As it is’.

    Pool of Peace

    Sharing my artwork here with my musings on Peace.

    In the forest of your mind
    Wanders many creatures
    Of thoughts,
    Great and small
    Playing the game
    Vying for attention
    Fighting for Survival
    To be heard and to be listened to
    To be acted upon and manifest itself.

    Your history and future
    Dancing a tango with each other
    In this present moment
    But in-between and betwixt…

    There is a space of quiet
    Of all pervading calm
    Within lies a lake of stillness
    Or call it a pool of peace.

    A watering hole of wisdom
    A centering space of simplicity
    As all illusory creations of the mind
    Partake in a regeneration.

    As the thoughts refresh themselves
    The mind collects itself once more
    All is Serene and tranquil inches now
    Peace pools in and life evolves…
