Life & Living

Whenever I come across a heart touching action, or a prose ,a poem or quote I will be sharing it here in this series…

Some people make the world a better place by their thoughts words and deeds…

Some people, tell it like it is without mincing anything

And the truth in all its profound simplicity tugs your heartstrings…

Beautiful words
Written by
Sophia Loren (Actress)…

_” When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone….. When I was sure of Losing, I won……. When I needed People the most, they Left me……. When I learnt to dry my Tears, I found a shoulder to Cry on…… When I mastered the Skill of Hating, Someone started Loving me from the core of the Heart…… And, while waiting for Light for Hours when I fell asleep, the Sun came out….. That’s LIFE!! No matter what you Plan, you never know what Life has Planned for you…… Success introduces you to the World……. But Failure introduces the World to you……. ……Always be Happy!! Often when we lose Hope and think this is the end… God smiles from above and says, “Relax Sweetheart; It’s just a Bend, not the End..!”_

Worthy reminder indeed!

Worth taking a moment to be inspired by the truth of life and living in her words.

Here is another recent share about her …
Sophia Loren is returning to cinema after an 11-year absence. Loren, 86 stars in upcoming Netflix drama The Life Ahead, which is directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti.
At age 83, Oscar winner, Sophia Loren remains the epitome of la Dolce Vita and glamour. Although recognized as one of the most beautiful woman in the world, the Italian Icon is equivalently known as the woman who dared to challenge traditional conventions of beauty in the 1950’s.

Every life has a unique story

Every living has a unique pathway

Illusions & Reality


What is illusory ?
What is reality?
What is I and what is you?
Both so intermingled in the intersection.

Creating new perceptions
In the making of reality
Charting through illusions
Decoding the delusions…


Of assumptions of the invisible
Of judgements of the  intangible
Of connections in the uncertainty
Virtual seems true & truth virtual.

Between the apparent realities
Diminish the blurry lines of truth
Many lives are lived, in one life
Or perhaps there are many lives after all!

All in good faith!

The power that creates

The omnipresence

Is all knowing consciousness

That is there to take care

All of creation

Cannot be without a reason

Trust the purpose

Keep the faith

Faith is all there is

Without faith nothing is

Art of Movement

Personally speaking, I have a deep interest in the art of movements, especially the ones that elucidate the flow… perhaps that is why I love dancing but on the other hand I have been equally captivated by the beauty of Tai chi and more so Qi Gong.

The healing energy of movement has often been a subject of deep passion, respect and research for me.

Likewise I am especially fond of the flowing Waltz as well. Since childhood, dancing comes naturally to me but have always found myself grappling to understand why martial art is even necessary.Until much later I started exploring the potency of energy in each of us…through a little introduction into Tai chi as well by conscious choice.

Allow me to present my reflections on this subject in a flow….

In a dance
There is an interconnect
Of emotion and movement
As to emote is to sense
The feeling in the flow…

In dance there is an awareness
Of moving in response
Without anticipation.
As in one step less,
The music moves on
And you are left to improvise
On how to match the steps in rhythm.

Yes, truly to dance is to enjoy the life in the moves.

In martial arts
There is flow too
But a flow that is ever in alertness,
In strategic moves and self defense
The speed and swiftness
In reaction and response.

Martial arts often feels like dance… t
But often the difference
Is between life and death.

Both are connected in the deepest sense and yet distinctive like chalk and cheese.

The intention to dance and to fight…is what differentiates.

We dance to let go, to enjoy this now and celebrate it.
In awareness is a flow that merges in harmony to synch in with now in artistry of the moves

The warrior is fighting for peace for survival against all odds
Not knowing what is the next move but yielding to the now to decipher the countermove and strike.
Here too there is often a display of extreme artistry of motion in accuracy of time.

To learn both, takes dedication and practice in patience.
But most of all is the need for relentless will & passion to persevere .

Yes, there is a dancer in a warrior

And a warrior in the dancer.

Choice rests within you.

Just remember, to dance is to live the moments and explore its most aesthetic potential in the flow… choose not to make dance a fight.

Stay joyful in peace.

To learn martial arts is to get into the arena and survive.
Attack or in self defense with least possible harm to get out of harms way to stay in peace.

Both may have their own relevance in purpose
To negate one is to look at only one half of the circle
Just as much as joy is part of life
Safekeeping the freedom to be
Is equally important in every now…

Do you want to dance in peace
Do you want to fight for peace.
Choice is yours to make
Peace or war!

Savvy.

Revolve & evolve

The world may seem to revolve around you
But you revolve along with the world.
So to be in balance is to take a hold
Of the space you are in
To find your bearing, before you react.
To optimize your response
Begin to understand and discern
Where another is in space, in thoughts
In actions and deeds.

To listen actively
To empathize with their needs and wants…
To be able to see the ‘Us beyond the I’
To shift the ‘Me to the We’

This is what will truly help
Us to understand where we are.
Life is like that,
Its meant to evolve and grow
Along in the flow!

If not now then when?

If not now then when…
Will we distinguish the need and want
For between them is a line of balance
To understand in awareness
To acknowledge in understanding
Some needs are common to life & living.
But wants are more specific in nature.
The motivation of these wants
Is both intrinsic and extrinsic
Some wants are by nature
And some wants are formed in nurture.

To be motivated towards thinking
Of what to have and let go in time
Is a matter of discernment
In conscious consideration
A matter of introspection
To bring about waves of changes in action.
Moving beyond the apparent realities
It’s a matter of awareness of the imprints
Of life and living…
A subject of substantial deliberation
Not too common a pathway.
And yet an offbeat road leads to surprising revelations

Power of Great Intentions

In a world so self obsessed

In a world so often neglected

In a world where time is always priced.

In a world where love comes with clauses

In a world of vulnerability of human frailties

It is so very important to awaken

In hope of transcending

With possibilities of good intentions

A prayer in hope of health and peace for the good of all!

Heart of Love





In the spectrum of emotions
Love and hate are at opposite ends.
Yet often find itself  juxtaposed.

Love flows through
Hate constricts life.
Love is transcendence.
In evolved consciousness.
While hate scars the soul
Love heals and renews the spirit ❤

When love finds its bearings…
It takes wings and charts its course
Patterning itself in the flow
And leaves healing imprints forever
In the river of eternal time.

You have this now
Make it beautifulYou have it all in you…Love your life
Live life lovingly!

On Understanding


What you see and I see
May seem different  to the both of us
What you feel and I feel
May feel different  to the both of us
We all see and sense things
In our own unique ways
That is how we are wired.
But when we make a move
Take a step and exchange perspectives
We see, what we missed along the way
Every view is limited in its scope





Every feeling is in the sensing
Change your perspectives
And you will see so much more
Your sensing and feeling will expand
Eventually you will  make a shift
In your attitudes and alter your actions
That is what true understanding  is all about. 





Today the world needs to understand
More than ever before
What it is like  for everyone  else
What makes the world tick
What brought  us to a standstill
What we need to do from now
What can each of us change  from this now
To understand is half the battle won.

Live life lovingly!




Love life
Intend well
To manifest
Your true potential in time.
It is the way of creation
You are a precious manifestation
Of this universe.

Trust the living you
Keep the faith
For without faith nothing is
Believe you can
For you are enough for you!

“Time moves on endlessly
In every moment  that moves into the  other
Care to keep the cheer and flow in faith seamlessly.”

Live life lovingly!

Sail through life

Sail through life
Steering away from density
Be in the moment.
Live fully.

Rest easy sleep well
Be generous be mindful
Let your moves be wise
Choose well.
Be safe than sorry!

Let your boat of life be light
Burden it not by overloading
For it gets difficult to carry
The weight of your burdens
Be light and sail on
In the lightness of being.

Hello Mother

Hello Mother
Hope you’re feeling alright
May the sun shine through the day
And may sky stay blue
May the waves be gentle
May the moon be bright and beautiful
May the stars sparkle & twinkle for you.

Hello mother
Forgive us for we have wronged you
We were too busy being selfish
That we never cared for our mother
You withstood it all & bore so much
I admire your resilience
How do you tolerate us so mother
For mistakes unpardonable?

How forgiving can u get?
You are the great teacher
Yes, you showed us the signs
That we simply chose to ignore
How callous of us to think
We could go on forever
Without mending our foolish ways.

Hello Mother
We hope you can breathe easy
Through the days and nights
As you hear natures sweetest tunes
Of swaying breeze & waltzing waves
Of chirping birds in joy
Of streams gurgling by
Of rivers refreshed in the flow
Life is regenerating in relief.

If only hope, faith and trust prevails
In peace and goodwill
Then our actions can speak
Louder than words!

Hello Mother
On this Mother’s Day
Hope you have a beautiful day
Today and every day!

Create light, feel light, live light!

Always have something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.

It will make you a happy person.

And yes the potential to create that beautiful ‘something’ is in each of us.

It simply needs to be acknowledged

As it flows, choose to channel it with love.

Create light, feel light, live light!

No room for I, Me & Myself

In a world that is literally shrinking globally,
In a world where respect for cultural diversity,
Is paramount to humanity.
In a world where inclusivity is a necessity,
In a world where businesses are adopting empathy driven approach.
In a world where love, kindness and faith is needed much more than ever,
In a world that is changing states quo…

There is need for all of us to come together.
There is need to value connections.
There is need to understand each others vulnerabilities.
There is need to be inclusive in the diversity.

When we move beyond the I
And envision the Us
When we see the world as ours than mine.
When we care to collaborate together,
In mutual respect of the differences
When we acknowledge the strength of unity in the diversity.
When the, Me and Myself
Shifts to Us beyond the Mine.

The world will evolve for the better of all.
Let’s know, how interweaved we are!
For that’s where our true strength lies
In this very interconnectedness.
No matter the distance of space or time.
So, in a world where it is right now
There is no room for the I Me &Myself Anymore.
