The Journey



As is above
So is below
Reflection speaks
As is within.
The journey of life
Mirrors our way of being

‘In every moment of time care to be rooted to the stillness in your movements…
Care to acknowledge gratefully this strength in the rootedness.’

The Creator’s Touch

A dear friend shared this video clip with me yesterday and I immediately penned these words…



The creator flows
Envisioning…
Creating patterns 
In the living
Every phase
Deeply connected
In the tapestry of life

Everything has a reason to be…
Every shape, every line
Speaks of life lived
Every shade, every colour
Every tone & every tint
Portrays the truths of living
Every curve depicts
The fullness of life.

In the creators touch
Art becomes artistry
In the state of flow
Where the creator
Merges with his creation
Emanating soul to the art.

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 ❤

Have compiled it all together here, to share the strength of the interweaves in the interconnects… hope it reads well!


Owning the roots




Everything has a beginning
Nothing can materialize
Out of nowhere.
The beginning holds the truths.



Acceptance is the key
To the entire journey.
Make peace with it, make amends.
It helps smoothen the ends.




Your roots matter
From the time you are born
Your rearing and nurturing
Your life experiences.

The people involved.
Your parents teachers and friends.
All make you who ever you are.
Along the way, all the way.




You learn the ways of the world
In every experiences by far.
Remember to never be indifferent. Accept all as part of your story.




No matter the good or the bad.
Make peace to progress.
There are no roses without thorns.
Everything has a reason to be.




You may want to paint your life.
Till the last detail .
Choose to use all the colors in your box.
Paint your vividity!





Fear not, dare to try living
In Authenticity
You have one life,
Choose to live vibrantly.





You have had the good and bad Countless times in life
You have been challenged
Over and over again.




Value the moments of victory. Acknowledge the learning in defeats Take them all by your stride.
For the circle of life moves forward…



Yes you have come far.
You may have a new reality.
You may sense disconnect.
In parts of your journey.



Yet care to remember
There is a night before the dawn.
Your present always has a past.
Like with everybody else.




To know your self is good.
But to accept your truths.
As you are is better.
And living lovingly is best!




For in moments of despair.
To the heights of your glory.
The grace of gratitude.
Will give you peace of being.

Two sides

Interestingly…

I came across both these images almost in the span of a single day!

Like the mirror has two faces

Everything that is , is not all

There are two sides

To everything

That exists…

What I pay attention

Grows with conviction

What I wish to disown

Diminishes to perish.

As this tree of life

Is taking roots

Growing branches

And shaping itself…

Yet the Choice

What to feed

And what to starve

The fate and future

Of two sides of my life

Solely rests with me.

Art of Storytelling.

Stories telling is an art

Not just the story

But the way you say it

When you say it

How you say it

To whom and why

Stories have much depth

Than what’s apparent to us.

Here is one such story worth a study!😀

Enjoy the humour…

Finest example of presence of mind!.

A Professor started his class on a very serious Topic. The moment he turned towards the blackboard, one of the students whistled. He turned, looked at the class and asked the Whistler’s name. No one answered.

The Professor peacefully kept the Pen in his pocket saying: “Lecture ends here. I’ll tell you a story to utilise the remaining time”.

Everyone became interested.

“Yesterday night I tried hard to sleep, but it was miles away from my eyes, so I thought I’d better get petrol in my car, which will save my time next morning and might induce sleep. After having my tank full, I started roaming in that area, enjoying the peace of a traffic free ride.

Suddenly, on the corner I saw a girl who was as young and beautiful as the clothes she was wearing. Must have been returning from a party. Out of courtesy, I turned my car towards her and asked if I may be of any help. She asked me if I could drop her to her home, she’ll be very obliged, to which I agreed.

She sat in the front seat with me. We started talking, and to my amazement she was very intelligent, had control on many topics which many youngsters don’t.

When we reached her address, she admitted my courteous nature and behavior and accepted that she would love to meet again.

I also admitted her intelligence and beauty and that I’ve also started liking her. I told her about my job as a professor in the university.

The girl asked my number, which I gave her willingly. Then she asked me a favor, to which i couldn’t have denied naturally.

She said that her brother is a student in the same university, and asked me to take care of him, since we’ll meeting each other more now.

I asked the name of the student. She said that I’ll recognise him with one of his very prominent quality, *He whistles a lot!*

All eyes in the classroom turned towards the boy who had whistled.

The professor said: “I didn’t buy my Ph. D in Psychology.. I earned it”.

Zen state

When words propose in a flow
That is persuading and all pervading
No matter the rhyme or form
It becomes poetry
Creating a zen like feeling
That makes you want to be
In that state of awareness
Inspite of knowing
Everything moves on…

Have you ever been enticed by the eloquence of words?

Personally I have many favorites

But these profound words by Gibran deeply impacted me…
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

Infact all the lines that follow are equally poignant as well as profound.

So much wisdom in those words for life and living.

Which is your favorite piece of poetry?
Do your remember those verses vividly ?

Would love to know!

There is…

Who says the page is empty?
There is poetry that is waiting to emerge

Who says the mind is blank?
There are surging thoughts full of potential.

Who says there is stillness in the silence
Stillness is overflowing with movements.

Who says the night is dark
There is light awaiting dawn!

A blank canvas is full of possibilities
Of creativity in all its flourishes in the flow.

There is the color of hope
There are patterns arising in perspectives.

There is forming and shaping of things to come
There is composition awaiting the sensing
All it needs is your faith in the envisioning.

For faith is all there is
In faith there is everything!

On sharing responsibly

To write is to express life from your perspective.
To read is to understand life from another perspective.

Both interweave in the joy of expression and explorations
Of discovering the truth of life in the magic of words.
Respect to the writers & readers who can spread unspeakable joy
And leave a positive impression  through mere words.

To the writers who have mastered the art of story telling                                                 Keeping the world safely engrossed  in these troubled times
Gratitude to all those who write and share with care
Ensuring to share words and thoughts
And make the  world feel a little better than before
My deepest appreciation
For, in the darkest of spaces
Even a little light of positive words & verses
Leaves the place  a little more lit.
And every word can leave a lasting impression!

Making the most of it.

An interesting story share that conveys the importance of making the most of lifes difficult situations…. do read.

After 60 years of ideal married life , they had no secrets between each other. The wife’s only request was not to ask anything or open the wooden box she had kept in the attic. The husband respected that.

On her deathbed the wife told the husband ok. I want to tell u everything. Pl. Bring the box on the attic.

When he opened the box, there were 2 woollen dolls, his wife made and 10 lakhs. in cash.
The wife explained,when I came newly married to your house my grandmother gave a wise advice. She told never to argue with you for anything. If I’m angry she told me make a woolen doll which I was good at. I practiced that all these years.

Only 2 dolls. The husband was so happy he made his wife angry with him on only 2 occasions in theses 60 years.
What about the 10 lakhs? he asked.
Oh! That is the money I got by selling the other dolls I made.

We are.

We are braver than our fears

We are stronger than our doubts

We are capable beyond our beliefs

We are meant to surmount the storms

We are meant to move and manifest

The truth of the purpose of life itself.

For we are more far more

Than what we seldom think.

We are meant to be!

Be in love

When you are in love…

Love makes you hear music, you have never heard before,
Love makes your steps look like a dance.
Love makes your heart flutter in abandon.
Love makes you see the truth of beauty in the ordinary.
Love is the gift of grace from your soul.

Be in love. Be in love
With yourself and the world around.
And make both a better place to be in.

Be in love with life…

Live life lovingly!

On Kindness

To combat the cruelties of this world we must start thinking globally not just locally and realise how much our world is hurting all over from all that’s truly unfair.

If only we could realize how valuable it is to be appreciated and supported .

If we could only know how important it is to feel inclusive in our diverse ways.

We must understand that love and kindness is the only way besides adopting a non-judgmental approach.

We must realise how vulnerable life is, but beyond feeling victimized and create further suffering due to negative thoughts…

We need to respond with empathy, show unity through kindness and compassionate deeds.

The power of kindness is truly infinite.
KINDNESS IS THE PRAYER IN ACTION.

Sweet moments.


Sometimes life gives you beautiful memories where you least expect it from.
 Or maybe all happens for a reason.
We were meant to meet!


A month back, work took me all the way to China. And while some industry visits were happening as scheduled, a  small moment of connection and conversation resulted in great joy and camaraderie.
Met some very beautiful and loving hearts. We warmed up almost instantly with each other. We shared much about our cultures, our food and traditions.
We spoke to each other from the heart all with the help of a translator app.
It was such a beautiful flowing conversation. We circumvented language barriers although I spoke in English into the app and them in Chinese. It hardly came in the way. By the end of it what mattered was the joy that emerged. The beautiful moments shared will always be treasured in my heart.

Thankful to the useful translator app that made it so simple. And helped create fond memories of that day!
