Razors Edge

On the razors edge, there is poignant elegance

Beautiful poise, precariously in balance

Amidst the fury of the fire raging beneath

She stand resolute in her calmth

Not helpless but in knowing nature’s ways

That in time, all is well back to base.

Beauty on the outside burns off into the ember

Leaving an ashen pile of dust to remember.

Yet deluding the fury in being uprooted

In the strength of the grounding firmly rooted

Leaving an evergreen picture of poise

She has that stoic stance of grace.

A pose of composure on destiny’s face

In spite of a life abruptly denied

She is the beauty of grace personified!

Rainbow Of Hope

When the world wakes up to a day
To see the harmony of existence
Exemplified in a rainbow
The world will change…

When the world connects from the heart in empathy
Than with mere words
Then those connects will transform the world 🌎

The world is changing itself
But old habits die hard
Sad truth is all thats wrong with the world today is man-made.

Beyond the darkness is light
Beyond fear and doubts
Lies possibilities in hope
All is meant to be well.

A Grateful Heart

Its good to never let the things you want ,

Make you forget the things you have.

How about Practicing Gratitude as a way of being.

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

Nurture Your Passion

Will share something today,that I have been practicing every day for many years now… it has made me a happier person.

Care to spend at least an hour or two a week to pursue your interest or passions.

The emptiness left by not pursuing it distracts more time out of you than pursuing it for a couple of hours a week.

And in time not only do others see you feel more at ease when you are with them; there will also be something wonderful to look forward for yourself!

Giving way for the new!

Yesterday the flower was in full bloom
Filling the senses with unabashed beauty
Today it gently wraps into itself
Knowing it’s deed is done
Letting itself move into the background
Retreating as a way for another to bloom.

There are moments in the sun
For one and all
Such is the circle of life
How gracefully the flower accepts
The truth of life and living
Every flower leaves a lesson behind
As it disappears into the sunset
You are born to bloom
Life life lovingly!

Strength of Perseverance




The flower blooms from a seed
In the power of  perseverance
Because of its strength of purpose
If you believe in your self

You are meant to bloom in time.




Stay determined and focus
Believe you are capable
No matter the situation
Trust your inner reserve
Waste not time in worry
It doesn’t help any way.





And lose not hope.
You are meant to survive the odds
Nothing is achieved by worrying.
For patterns only get complicated.
Keep up with your perseverance




All said and done
Know the strength within you

And remember to touch base
With your own soul song
You have it all within
Such is the power of Perseverance

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.

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!

Take what you need

Love and hope to bridge the divide

Faith and patience to move beyond

Courage and understanding to dare

Peace and passion to create some more

Healing and strength to help yourself

Beauty and freedom to enjoy this now!

Take what you need

But always remember….

Wiser to take that which we feel we really need this moment and maintain the state of positive abundance for others too.

After all there is so much good within all already. So simply take what you really need.

WHO ARE YOU?

Here is a beautiful story from India…

During one of his travels, Kalidasa (the Great Poet) felt very thirsty and looked around for water. He saw a woman drawing water from a well.

He went up to her and asked her for water. She agreed to give him water, but asked him, “Who are you? Introduce yourself.”

Now Kalidasa thought that an ordinary village woman was not worthy of knowing who Kalidasa was. So he said, “I am a traveller.”

But his lady replied, “In this world there are only 2 travellers – the Sun and the Moon. Both Rise and Set every day and keep travelling perpetually.”

Then Kalidasa said, “Alright then, I am a guest.” The lady promptly replied, “In this world there are only 2 guests – Youth and Wealth … both are temporary and hence can only be called as guests.”

Intrigued Kalidasa said, “I am a Tolerant person (sahansheel vyakti).” Now the lady replied, “In this world only 2 truly know the meaning of Tolerance – Bhoomi (Earth) and Tree. How much ever you stamp the earth or throw stones at the tree (for the fruits), both continue to nurture us.”

Now Kalidasa was completely perplexed. He said, “Fine. I am a stubborn person (hatavaadi).” The lady smiled and said, “There are only 2 truly stubborn personalities – our nails and our hair. We keep cutting them non-stop, but they continue to grow.”

Kalidasa had been patient so far, but now in anger he said, “I am a fool”. Now the lady gave a wide smile and said, “There are only 2 kinds of fools in this world – a King who rules without having any capability or knowledge & a Minister who is a sycophant to such a King and lavishes praises on such a useless king.”

Kalidasa realised that he had been outsmarted. He fell at the feet of the lady and when he touched her feet and then got up, whom did he see?

Mother Saraswati – the Goddess of Learning and Wisdom. She said, “Kalidasa, you are wise. But only if you know yourself do you become a Manushya (human being). A person without any awareness of self has not reached the pinnacle of being a Human.

Note:
The Guru who recounted this story in His Teachings said, “Children should become a Manushya & know themselves. More than teaching them how to earn more money and become rich, parents should teach them to become aware of themselves and become better Human beings.

Wouldn’t you agree?

What do you think of this ancient story and its relevance to our education today?

How far have we really come with the so called knowledge?

What legacy will we really be leaving behind for our children tomorrow?

When can we bridge this growing gap between learning for knowledge and learning for understanding?

How can we transform our methods of education where we educate not just the mind but also the human heart?

For the truth is that…

Humanity needs us all to be humane more than ever before to survive!

Way of being

You show who you are

By the way you treat people…

Especially those who in a way

Have done wrong by you

Who didn’t treat you good

Who were nasty and mean

Who were happy by your loss

Especially these people

Treat them as well as others

Share goodwill from your heart ❤

Without expectations, be kind

Even with the most critical

They will come around.

Just trust in yourself

And your way of being.

Heal the world

Heal the world

The stories of the bygone are contained in the stone

For within, it holds the secrets of the past.

The fragile flower owns its freshness to this now

The Blossoming of the bloom is the present truth of time.

How delicate is life and yet so very powerful in potential

One life has the power to transform lives…

But our life carry us on, not backwards

But further into the future.

The good we can do today will impact the life we have in future.

Touch a life positively & make an impact.

Intend with the goodness of your soul.

Treat yourself and others well

For you are creating goodwill in every action

Speak well and share kindness.

Enthuse yourself and create cheer.

Smile through the moments

Live love laugh.

Help heal a life and you have helped heal the world .

Live life lovingly!

It’s wonderful and easy

When life is a breeze

But the test is when

It’s a little stormy…

Life is a gift

Any which way

The trick is to see

The many blessings

That at times goes unnoticed.

Live life lovingly!
