Temple of being

Your body is home to life.

Treat it well.

Let life live through you

Enjoy the moments in awareness

Let your words be kind and

Let your deeds be compassionate

Allow yourself to be gentle.

Speak softly and share goodwill

You are nurturing yourself this way

Your ways will affect the energy

In and around you.

Respect the space you occupy

And value your temple of being.

Living Books



Every life is uniquely endowed with perspectives and experiences.
A living book is a human who shares his life’s stories and wisdom with willingness with another interested individual.

If the conversation is interesting the living book is read some more but if it does not meet the requirements of the individual reader, he is free to get up and find another living book to meet and connect.

Living books library concept is an interesting way to bring together learnings from life experiences directly on a one to one basis and a group setting. The conversation depends on what you want to understand and turn it towards.

Life teaches us much and every human can benefit from unedited direct soul to soulful connects where words flow at the moment.
In such connection is the transparency of truth that is glaringly stark from a book of prewritten words arranged in a format predesigned to sell in the market.

Life is so much than being a business.
In these discussions, the reader or the learner and the living book are both free to direct the course of the conversation without constraints.


Unlike a regular library of books, the human library is a gathering of humans and is event-based.

There are many functioning human book libraries all around the world today.

The concept began in  Copenhagen Denmark in 2000. The idea is to be nonjudgemental and engage in a dialogue that helps break barriers and social prejudices. The human book could be anyone who has a story to tell and is ready to share it. Or someone who has gone through any kind of discrimination and wants to share their experiences openly. 
So next time you want to explore the idea of reading a book, consider and lookout for opportunities to connect with a human book!

5 steps to Self Care.

Feeling Enmeshed?

1Are you feeling enmeshed in life and living?

2 Do you feel you are often taken for granted?
3Are you feeling you are giving more than you are receiving?
4Are you trying to do more than you actually can?
5Are you feeling criticized for everything good you do?
6Are your kind and benevolent intentions disrespected by your loved ones?
7Are you feeling threatened into submission?
8Are you feeling tightened by your own net of people whom you love?
9Are you gasping to breathe free?
10 Are you feeling a loss of control and confidence in daily life?
If you have answered more yes than no then chances are you are truly enmeshed and need help.
You need to redefine boundaries and clarify your stance.
Often creating boundaries is confused with being unapproachable and seen to be controlling and limiting.
But often it is about creating a space for the self, as much as to draw a line for others so that they dont tread all over you.
Caring for the self matters and one can be empowering and empathetic at the same time.
So it is important to know your needs matters and that it is not necessary to say yes to every thing and every one. You need to to learn to take a stance and set your boundary that allows another to respect your being.
Only when you establish your stance you create healthy boundaries for others to take you seriously and not take advantage of your kindness.
It is important to know where you end and another begins.Then you learn to be in relationships and yet be yourself fully as you are and not full of yourself.
Expanding your sense of self can be challenging as well. Simply understand all of life is valuable in it’s own special way including you . In respecting life and living you convey the value and responsibility of mutual coexistence.
5 Steps to gaining control of your life begins with you.
1.Know you are alive and not simply existing.
2. Be assertive but not arrogant
3. Be confident and speak with clarity.
4. Remember your purpose in life and communicate intently
5. Build on your strengths to thrive.

Virtual Illusions

Caught hook line and sinker

Wherever we go

Wherever we are

The web follows us

Connectivity is a boon and bane

For there is always the peril

Of being caught up deeply without knowing.

Minutes melt into hours

Before you free yourself from its clutches.

In its tempting interactions..

Unaware are many, of its effects

On the health of humanity

Radiation, fatigue and syndromes

Affected can’t put down their phones

As people seems helpless without it.

It’s time to draw a line

To regulate time spent on the net.

To be aware of the dangers of high speed wi fi connections.



Distance and shield from harmful (Emr) radiations where ever and whenever possible.

Switch off phones at night.

Switch off phones at night.
You will find yourself regenerating.

And your wellbeing will improve.

Make sure to spend time out in the real world.

Before the web snatches all your time.

Celebration of Independence

May we always dance in independence and freedom.

May we tune ourselves to connect with joys in tandem 

May we always remember and value great souls lost in martyrdom 

May we acknowledge that the strength in the interdependence is never random 

May we always respect our roots and learn to follow our inner wisdom 🙂  

Happy Independence Day to all Indians all over the world!

On Giving

Giving is the movement where the heart speaks without hesitation and in the flow through deeds and words. There is a moment of a decision before the giving and it is in that moment that life can be propelled to evolve along with the patterns of thought.

There is a lot of lovely words focused on Giving and most are essentially on the ‘Give before the Take.’

However, I also have something to share here …Every giving may have its own reasons…

Some may be in an instinctive reaction like warming up of the heart due to mutual understanding either being in the wavelength of resonance at that moment.

Or it may be because it is in goodwill as you genuinely care to show your appreciation.

Another would be because of your own good nature where you cannot leave without a positive act of appreciation in response…. there may be so many million and more reasons for giving which is wonderful for the world at large.

Now the reasons for not giving may be personal and unique as well.

Like for instance when you feel you are being used for a purpose that is self-serving.

Often there is a certain energy, in the very act of giving and that is what leaves an imprint on us and decides our future course of action.

Like at times a particular person’s energy may overwhelm and exhaust you or may be too much to handle that giving more thought or attention to it would feel counterproductive.

Like when you feel stressed and overburdened in the complexities of life and living that you simply may have overlooked the fact that the giving action is truly way beyond the gift itself.

Like when you fail to understand the reasons for giving or think the giver has ulterior motives for that matter…you may just appreciate it out of politeness but steer clear of receiving further as its truly not in your best interest to receive such a gift. But whatever it is, Giving nurtures and nourishes the soul of both the giver and the receiver when the intention is positive.

Go Give More of Yourself

Cos You come from Abundance

Receive with thankfulness

For that fills your own being with Grace.

Making it matter

Saw this the other day… I don’t know who originally wrote it but it’s brilliant

”Every minute someone leaves this world behind.
We are all in “the line” without knowing it.
We never know how many people are before us.
We can not move to the back of the line.
We can not step out of the line.
We can not avoid the line.

So while we wait in line –

Make moments count.
Make priorities.
Make the time.
Make your gifts known.
Make a nobody feel like a somebody.
Make your voice heard.
Make the small things big.
Make someone smile.
Make the change.
Make love.
Make up.
Make peace.
Make sure to tell your people they are loved.
Make sure to have no regrets.
Make sure you are ready.”
