Learnings from children

Every now and then

As the world becomes a burden

We adults need reminders

To notice the enthusiasm in children

A child teaches many things

That we could learn from

Happiness is a state of mind

Engagement is being in this now

Perseverance is a journey towards success

Today is a celebration of childrens day

Am thankful for all the lessons learned

And am grateful for the new learnings.

🙏đŸŒș🙏

I dedicate this post to my child and my teacher of many many things great and small …

and to all the children across the world.

Happy Childrens Day!!!💕😊💕

All is well.

We are living  in a world  rushed for time. People hurry and scurry through the day.

What we see in others is a part of us too reflected through them, when we are accepting of that part and able to respect it just as much as ourselves , we create all that we need to see at that moment .

Some very basic humane abilities are necessary in our journey in life.

To listen to understand, to connect, to acknowledge, to emphasize, to sense gratitude, to share happiness, and care for another as much as for ourselves.

Much of the world’s issues may find solace & resolutions in simply caring  to be present in the moment.

In these abilities lies the truth of nature in its magnanimity and abundance in every moment.

And All is truly well.

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

Miracle of life

Every move we make

In acknowledgement

Of the infinite truths of life.

Of the abundance of nature.

Every step we take in harmony

In conscious awareness

Of the interconnections

Of the nature of our being.

If we only care to remember

How intrinsically intertwined

Is every life to another.

Such is the miracle of every life

Every sign , sound, symbol & shape

Every part of nature has a reason to be.

Interrelated in the river of time.

Envision potential in expansiveness

Of possibilities in inclusiveness.

Recognize the awe & wonder of life.

The miracle of every manifestation.

Spools from Spills

Some positive takes in an accidental spill…

To keep calm and address the lesson in the spill.

To turnover a spill to evolve for better
To sense a pattern of possibilities in a spill.

To challenge the statuesque through a spill.

To test skillsets learned from a spill
To move beyond in a dare with a spill

To spill some more and align the pattern formations

To envision hope beyond the accidental spill.

To create artworks from the potential in a spillover

To empathize with the spiller across the learning curve…

Spills become art and art spills over.

From wherever we are

Wherever we may be
In this world, we are busy
We are too busy watching this now
For what might happen or go wrong
In doubt and fear of uncertainty


We perhaps, need a moment
ThĂ t we can can acknowledge
In awareness of where we are now
We might then, take note of all things.


Things that we can be happy about
Things that are not too bad after all
Things we may actually  be joyful about
And then perhaps we can feel better

From wherever we are
However we are, as we are.
There is much, that we can be
Truly grateful for in this life.

A perspective change

Here is a story share …

Play the battle Drums

A king had many elephants, but one elephant was very powerful, very obedient, sensible and skillful in fighting skills. In many wars, he was sent on the battlefield and he used to return only after getting victory to the king. Therefore, he was the most loved elephant of the king. Time went by and there came a time when the elephant started getting old. Now he was not able to perform as before. Therefore, now the kings did not even send him to the battlefield but still remain a part of his team.


One day the elephant went to the lake to drink water, but his feet got stuck in the mud there and then went on sinking. He tried a lot, but he could not remove himself from the mud. People came to know from the sound of his screams that the elephant was in trouble. The news of the trapping of the elephant also reached the king. All the people, including the king, gathered around the elephant and made various efforts to get him out. But after trying for a long time, there was no way out.


At that time, a old wise retired minister from the kings court was passing by seeing the king and the croud he thought of stopping and seeing what was tha matter. After a quick first inspection and speaking to the king he suggested to the king that the battle drums should be played around the lake. The listeners felt bizarre how the trapped elephant would come out by playing the drums. As soon as the drums of war started ringing, so did the change in the gesture of that troubled elephant.
At first, the elephant slowly stood up and then came out of the mud on his own, shocking everyone.

Reflection

There was no lack of physical ability in the elephant, only the need to infuse enthusiasm within
To maintain enthusiasm in life, it is necessary that humans maintain purposeful thinking & mindset and do not let despair dominate.

In today’s challenging times we all need to infuse ourselves & people around us with Hope & enthusiasm by playing the battle drums that we will again Celebrate Abundance of good health, Joy & Happiness tommorow.

Stop asking people how is tough times treating them instead share the happy moments and what interesting things are happening around you.

There is lots of good thing happening around.

Make sure the battle drums are played to declare not that a war has started but the victory in the battle of difficult times with the support of awesome people like you around.🙏

The Suitcase

The Suitcase

A man died, when he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.
– God said: Alright son its time to go.
– surprised the man responded: Now? So soon? I had a lot of plans…
– I’m sorry but its time to go.

– What do you have in that suitcase? the man asked.
– God answered: Your belongings.
– My belongings? you mean my things, my clothes, my money?
-God answered: Those things were not yours they belonged to the earth.

– Is it my memories? the man asked.
-God answered: those never belonged to you they belonged to Time

– Is it my talents?
-God answered: those were never yours they belonged to the circumstances.

– Is it my friends and family?
-God answered: I’m sorry they were never yours they belonged to the path.

– Is it my wife and son?
– God answered: They were never yours the belonged to your heart.

– Is it my body?
– God answered: that was never yours it belonged to the dust.

-Is it my soul?
God answered: No that is mine.

Full of fear, the man took the suitcase from god and opened it just to find out the suitcase was empty.
– With a tear coming down his cheek the man said: I never had anything???
-God answered: that is correct, every moment you lived were only yours. Life is just a moment. a moment that belongs to you. For this reason enjoy this time while you have it. Don’t let anything that you think you own stop you from doing so.
-Live Now
-Live your life
– Don’t forget to be happy, that is the only thing that matters.
– Material things and everything else that you fought for stay here.
-YOU CAN’T TAKE ANYTHING

Received this thoughtful share on social media with these words…

Share this reflection with anyone you love or appreciate. Enjoy every second you live.

Tap Into The Inner Wisdom

Our guiding voice from within

Is always speaking to us

Signaling in a whisper or a sign

Conveying what is the’ Gut feel ‘

Our second brain is often ignored

But it operates nevertheless

Resonating or relegating

An advice to our being

If only we know to listen in

We draw from its bank of wisdom

And better manage our choices

In staying integrated in life & living.

Take nothing for granted

Take nothing for granted

There is always a reason

For things to be, where they are

As they are, however they are…

Let your heart be ever grateful

For things that you have in this now.

And for that which passed you by…

All is well …in this now.

Stay thankful

And take nothing for granted!

Making it a daily habit and a part of life and living.🙏

You

In your difficult moments

That seem to take a toll on you

Trust there is a reason to living

There is purpose to your being

While your faith seems to shake

Understand there is only one you

You are power, undefinable & limitless

Your story has a shape and form

All your own that you are meant to share

Your experiences have made you who you are.

There is a power of infinite expression in every living cell you are.

Have you truly explored the power of you?

Circles of Energy

Every soul emits the energy
Of the wisdom of times
Lived living and in between
Myriad reflections of mind
Consciousness of the heart
And in character of the being

Embodiment of the ego in its essence
Humbled by life time and time again

Until the ancient soul find its own path
Of balancing witness and action.
Sensing the truth of its own being.

Your Circle




Who you are becoming

Has much to do with

Who you are being with.

You are bit of all

In between  the Influences

And betwixt the Confluences

Of all the people you meet & interact.




You create yourself 

Carving patterns of your life

With these experiences.

Negate not those who teach you

For learning comes

From all quarters.





Think of  your circle of  life

Pay heed to your circle

Keep it healthy & contribute with grace

Watch it closely and imbibe the good.

Make amends if needed

Rally in strength & power of the circle.

Understand your space in the circle

Choose you circle well!

Owning the roots



The last seven days of verses in a flow was an interesting experience. Have tried to connect them all together here. Thank you all for your likes and support every day and those of you who cared to pen their thoughts, deeply grateful to to those who have been joining in and making it even more memorable.

If you would like to visit each of them and read some of the beautiful responses in verses…
Here are the links :

Verses in Flow

DAY 1 Truth
DAY 2 : Roots Day3 : Reason
Day 4 : Live
Day 5 : Life
Day 6 : Connect
Day 7 : Grace.

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.
