For you have the power
Of choice with you
So choose what to accept
And what to let go!

A Motivational message
To the Young Ones
In your 20s
Life is about to bloom for you
Youth is on your side today
If your goal is to make a difference
Know your road is a long one.
Just a word of caution in care
With thoughts from down the road
Every moment has potential
With possibilities unlimited.
Life is both beautiful and uncertain
It can summon the very best in you
It can challenge your deepest reserve
To stay on course, needs your sensibility.
Be brave for the strongest can tremble
Be stable for the steadiest can tumble
Be humble for pride never wins
Be mindful of the now and tread with care.
Many a person will sing your praises
There will many paths open to explore
There will be many discoveries awaiting
Succumb not to temptation of aiming small.
Choose to think expansive and yet focus
Every thing is on a fine thread of balance.
As you make your choices
You shift and alter your paths ahead.
Sharing a beautiful song by Cliff Richard The Young Ones
Mountains to climb and achieve
Oceans to cross and discover
Pathways to create your imprints
All this and so much more….
Intentions to manifest and more
Journey to make and understand
Life is just starting for you
Miles to go before you Settle!
Life is what you make of it
Success is in how you see it
Love is how you feel within
Laugh a lot! Live Life Lovingly!
Yes dreams do come alive
Stars will twinkle & sparkle on
Trust your path is in the making
All it needs is you!
God bless you.

I start my day with a smile
Feeling thankful from my heart
For another day of being alive
And be a better version of me.
I start and end my day with hope
For a brand new beginning
Of things I can do & people I can meet
Of things I can learn from and share
And see the good that I can do
In my own little ways.
Life manifests itself
From our deepest intentions
Every moment can be made better.
Have a great start to every day!
How do you start your day?
LETTER FROM A MOTHER TO A DAUGHTER …
” My dear girl, the day you realize that I’m older, I ask you to be patient , but above all , try to understand what you ‘ll be passing by . When we talk , I repeat the same thing dozens of times , do not interrupt me saying : ” You said the same thing a minute ago .” Just listen , please. Try to remember the times when you were a child and I read the same story night after night until you sleep . When I do not want to bathe , do not be angry and not encabule me . Remember when you were a kid I had to run behind you making excuses and trying to put you in the bath ? When you realize you have difficulties with new technologies , give me time to learn and not look at me that way … remember, dear , how I patiently taught you many things such as eating right , getting dressed , fix your hair and give you with the problems of everyday life … the day you see that I’m older, I ask you to be patient , but above all , try to understand what you ‘ll be passing by . If I occasionally get lost in a conversation , give me time to remember and I do not, do not be nervous , impatient or arrogant . Just remember , in your heart , that the most important thing for me is to be with you . And when I grow old and my legs do not allow me to go as fast as before , give me your hand the same way that I offered him my much in its infancy . When that day comes , do not feel sad. Just stay with me and get me while I finish my life with love . I will love and thank you for the time and joy we share. With a smile and always had immense love for you, I just want to say I love you my dear daughter. “
Secrets of a beautiful life
Lies in the spirit of living….
Sense every moment like it is new
Such is the power of enthusiasm
Enthuse yourself to recognise
The joy at this moment.
All becomes significantly brighter
Should you choose to see it so!
You have the power of enthusiasm within you
Make life come alive in every moment.
Recognize the spirit within, like a child
That sees the world with wonder.
Do we remember to thank every day.
Yes most days perhaps not always. Sometimes life can be tough too!
Are we grateful to life?
Yes deeply grateful
But we often take it for granted too!
A reminder is sent along
In the most unexpected turns of events
Sometimes to value what we still have
To remind us to let go the frivolities
To spare a thought for the blessings
And offer a prayer for them.
And thus pause for a moment
In gratitude for the good and the bad
And all things in between
In knowing all is well
As all is meant to be.
There is something more
To human connection
That establishes itself
On it’s own terms
In simply seeing beyond the looking
In a space of understanding
The vulnerability of human life
Where eyes meet and interpret
Their soul connects.
Beyond race, beyond gender and age
Where the heart brings forth itself
Boundlessly beyond manmade borders
And speaks the language of empathy
In loving kindness
This is the space of being truly human.
Sharing this powerful yet simple social experiment which gives us an idea of what humanity can truly be.
Watch this inspirational clip of what happens in just 4 minutes of sitting down and looking at another’s eyes.
You are not the same
You are changing
In every moment
The change is creating you
That changer is within you !
You are the change, the changer and the changing you seek.
The wisdom is in…
Seeing the structure in the chaos and relate to the rhythms in nature.
Following along the infinite beginnings all leading to the same place :’Your true self’.
And in a knowingness that allows you to exercise choice in free will to be who you truly are.

Mindfulness is always a work in progress… It is a continuous journey in awareness, not just a destination.
It is a cultivation of appreciation for life and living in every moment…

Trust and Dancing.
As you dance with another…what matters most is the trust you place on yourself and your partner. To dance as one unit moving in synchrony and feeling the harmony of your beating hearts . This is the ideal connection which makes a dance come alive in the moments.
Yet as much as trust is a much needed trait in dancing together as a couple, often trust takes time to build and is also a subjective matter amongst dancers.
To trust is to let go doubt
To trust is to allow space for growth
To trust is to know patience in waiting
To trust is to allow space for faith
To trust another is not easy
For one and all…
To some it may be the most difficult
But trust is certainly worth trying!
To trust takes effort not assumptions
It takes practice in time and space.
For trust can be on many levels
Emotional Mental or Physical
Trust is built to evolve along
For in building the relationship
The foundation needs to endure
The winds of changes…
Trust is what trust does
Try to pin it down
Watch how turns out to be
Confusing and elusive…
Before you trust you will
Spend time sensing,
And witness the energy
The tension in the transactions
Being ready for changes
Being prepared to brave
Through disappointments and dissatifations
That may arise at any moment.
And yet …
Trust is not only about building
But about the ability of letting go
Of worry and insecurities
Of fear and failures.
To trust is to reach out
Without any expectations
But in utter faith and belief
That you will be supported!
A dance between a couple is a blissful feeling only when there is trust in both the self and the other, just as much as the passion … as only when there is the letting go, can there be the flow manifesting itself through the movements!
Member International Dance Council
Her likes were not the blatant and ĺoud
Not the one to shout out
Her kind of songs were of melody and rhythm
In synchrony with her heartbeat
Her type of books were all of an understanding
The soothing and sagacious kind
Of healing and harmony.
Her friends were far and few
Not much would escape her lips
Her speech was guarded.
None had really stepped into her inner world
In fact, her family too knew little about her
Her words were simple, not stormy
In fact, she chose the middle path in life …
A road safe and steady
Not for her the bane of fame and fortune
Not for her the choppy waters of high tides
She preferred the smooth sailing in serenity
She was a lover of grace in simple things
She never was the seeking kind ever
Neither love nor laurels, pleasures nor pain
She lived a life content, she never craved too much
She knew the price of desire only too well…
Awakening the self, the way bearer in the wisdom of living.
Want of wealth, never brings balance of needs
Hoard nothing and healing begins Living intentionally is not about living selfishly…
She was privy to the clasping clutch that ambition brought
She witnessed the sacrifice of lives barely lived
She grew in the unfolding drama that power portrayed.
She was torched by emotional upheavals, to rise in fortitude
She amassed the wisdom in the power of silence
This is an interpretation of my own painting I have shared above. I choose to delve a bit on the nature of the central character in the painting…
Who is she?
What makes her who she is?
What guides and motivates her?
What brings her peace and contentment?
What makes her grateful?
To every evolving question there is always a reason to be…
And to each their own path to be!
Time heals it all they say
And its so very true
So when we are in throes of torment
Trust time to pass to a better moment
When life throws a googly at you
And you are left flummoxed
That you just have no certain way
Trust time to move you on along the way
In trying moments of despair
When you are left fending for yourself
Know the answer is around the bend
Trust time to let itself mend.
For time is the answer
Be patient to let it pass
For no two moments are alike
Such is the eternal mystic of time.
