A Pocketful Of Bloom

Choose to lighten your life

Have pockets to fill with blooms

Let go of unnecessary gloom

Choose to be cheerful

Wherever you go

Carry joy with you

Choose enthusiasm in this now

For tommorow is another day😊

So you owe it to yourself

To make every day

Come alive for you!

The Best of You

The way you live this now you have

Is beyond how life treats you

Trust the possibilities in this now

Let go of the unnecessary doubts

Trust in your reason to be

Trust your intentions keep the faith

Life is a reflection of perceptions

And self beliefs manifests hope within.

Keep being the best version of you

Because you truly can!

The Simple Truth

In knowing there is within you

The power of potential

Is one thing

But in knowing  what to do with it

Is quite another

The way you choose to be

Your thoughts  to deeds

Pave the path of life

That you live through 

Every moment is a living truth 

Of the choice you choose to make

And this is the simple truth .

A Sufi Tale

A Sufi Tale:
A merchant from Baghdad entered a Sufi’s shop, which had essence jars on the shelves.
Marveling at the beauty of the place, he asked, “Sir, what is sold here?”
The Sufi replied, “The gifts of God”.

The merchant was surprised with the answer, & asked, “And how much do they cost?”
“Nothing, here all is for free”, said the Sufi, observing carefully, that the traveller could see the labels: “Jugs of Love”; “Jars of Faith”; “Packages of Hope”.

The merchant said, “A big jug of love, all the packages of hope & three jars of faith for me, my friends & my family”.

The Sufi carefully prepared the order & handed him a small box.
Surprised, the merchant exclaimed, “But, but…. how can everything I have asked for, be in this tiny box?”

Smiling, the Sufi replied, “In God’s store, we do not sell fruits, only seeds. You have to sow them.

Notice the Good

Sometimes the simple act of noticing  something  good  can make all the difference…

Trust there is always  more

Than what your eyes can see

In the sensing and the knowing

The yet undiscovered good manifests

Right before you for you to notice.

Traveling along…

Sharing a story that came my way on Social Media.

I am Travelling with you !

Every year Parents took their son to his Grandmother’s House for the Summer Break, and they would return Home in train after Two Weeks.

One Day the Boy tells
his Parents:
′′ I’m Grown Up now,
What if I go to Grandma’s House alone this Year ???”

After a Brief Discussion
Parents agree.

They were standing on the Railway Station, seeing him off,
Giving him Last Instruction through the Window,

As Boy continues to repeat:
′′ I know, you’ve already told me so many times…!”
Train is about to leave and Father whispers:
′ My Son,
If you suddenly feel Bad or Scared, this is for you !…… ′
And he slips something into his Pocket.

Now the Boy was all alone, sitting on the Train, without his Parents,
for the First Time…

He looks at the Scenery through the Window.
Around him Strangers Hustle, make Noise, Enter and Exit
the Compartment,
He gets that Feeling that he was alone..
A person even gives him a
Scary look…
The Boy felt uncomfortable…
And now he was frightened also.
He lowered his head, snuggled in a corner of the Seat,
tears rose to his Eyes.

At that Point he remembered his Father putting something in his pocket.
With a trembling hand he groped this piece of paper, and he opened it,
Son, “Don’t Worry,”
I am in the Next Compartment…

*Truth* :

This is How it is in Life…
When God has sent us in this World, all by ourselves,
HE has also slipped a note in our pocket,

*God Says:*
I am Travelling with you,
I am within your reach !
Call on Me…❗

🙏

Mystic of life

A dear friend shared this picture on social Media and it left me contemplating…

We are born to connect

In one way or other

For a purpose larger

Than our individual self

There is light that we have

That we ourselves may not know

The potential of, that manifests

To serve at the right time.

There is always a reason

For this now, so rise above despair

And look onward and upward

The way is forward in faith

To live and help heal some more.

No wonder its said ‘Hands that help

Is holier than lips that pray…’

We are carriers of hope

That pass on for posterity

Our life is intricately weaved

In every moment of our being

Through the echelons of time

For a reason, we may or never know

Such is the ‘Mystic of life’

In all its brilliant manifestations.

Passion & Perseverance

Have you ever wondered

What is it on your path

That makes you persevere

Like no tommorow

To keep giving all of you…

Something that is on the fringes

Something tangible and yet intangible

It is that which sparks you up

Nothing feels unbearable

Its as if your mind body & soul

Is finally integrated in the sensing

Of the brilliance at work

Beyond yourself.

You will know that when you meet

The purpose of your being

At some point in your life perhaps

In the most unexpected of ways

You will find in yourself

An energy summoned from within

To reckon with to persevere on.

Such is the dance of abundance

Of creation at play

Making life resonate to its cosmic ways…

Soul Enrichers

Soul Enrichers…

I do believe the journey of life, broadens the mind and brightens the spirit if we are ready to acknowledge the unfolding gifts of connections. along the way.

In my journeys across the world earlier, as a Dance Educator teaching and speaking about dance applications and approaches there have been some amazing people both in the dance circuits and otherwise,who I have had very fascinating conversations with…

I want to share a bit here about some of these beautiful people from across the world who I had a chance connect with, nothing planned,yet meeting them was truly soul enriching to say the least.

Would like to begin the first in these series of posts with Emily Berry who is now a dear friend.

Emily, the beautiful intelligent woman with an Indian Soul all the way from New York … who dances with all her heart and soul 🙂

Emily Berry is the Artistic Director of B3W Performance Group, which has performed in the US, England, Greece, and Mexico...

We met in 2014 Greece, while we were representing our own countries at the World Dance Research Congress.

In her own words…

“I strive to create a safe space for students to learn, explore, question, and become independent thinkers and movers. In technique courses, I address each individual student’s unique body in order to help them develop their technique through muscle re-patterning. Students learn anatomical awareness and tools to help them move past road blocks.

In theory, improvisation and composition courses my main goal is to help student’s find their own voice. Creating a judgment free space is essential so students are not afraid to explore new movement possibilities.”

Professor Aviva Geismar

Berry’s choreography has been tackling such issues as race, the glass ceiling, domestic violence, women in prison, and war since 1995.

Today, brought in a beautiful memory of a time when I had an amazing afternoon walk with her, while at the Acropolis museum Athens.

I remember how a shared a common love for all things dance… got us interacting post our dance workshops and rest just fell in place!

We conversed like we have known each other from years ago…

‘Beautiful places… Beautiful memories ‘💙

A place called Hope

There is a place

That fills you with positivity

Enriches you with expansiveness

Embodies inclusiveness.

Enough to keep your faith going.

Endowed with trustfulness

Believe in possibilities.

A place of potential value

Thats nurturing in itself.

That lights the way forward.

A place that speaks to all of you!

A beautiful place called hope!

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!

Are you here?

Energy is where attention is!

The ability to dedicate time &, attention in any given task , or relationship can be the denoter of its success.

Make sure to be truly where you are!
