Crossing the Culture Threshold!



There is great power in words…
To  charm another,influence or drive a point home.

Engagement online can turn better on bitter in a split second.

It is all in the choice of words used to convey a message.
For there is much influence the words….such is the power of words.
 

Sometimes knowingly or otherwise  the way we express  or communicate   to another  by the words we may use may bring a chasm than  create a bridge.


Sometimes when we see another life, as beautiful and cant curb the need to express it away, we often get caught up in our own words and unknowingly end up …

Crossing the Culture Threshold!

What to one might be just a poetic expression

To another might be a glitch of discretion.

Express if one must

Feel free to feel the way you feel is the way to feel

But only as long as anothers peace you don’t unknowingly steal.

For at times in the surging words of emotion…

Arises unnecessary stress and discomfort.

Better to know the pause in the space between our steps

And value your edges in every move.

For in every positive step in discretion

There is simply the strength of trust without mention.

When I penned these lines they were specifically for driving the message home gently that no one can tread on another’s emotional space without permission especially online using the power and persuasion of words…


True respect for another being can simply be about letting others be.

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!

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!

Taking life lightly

Birds fly higher and higher

As if they are as light as a feather

They take themselves lightly!

Full of faith trust & self belief .

To be able to soar high

Onwards & upwards

Choose to let go of burdens

That create density

In thoughts words & deeds

Unfold the wings of freedom

Unfurl in the lightness of being

There is joy in sensing freedom

Thats who you truly are!

The Paradox of Awareness

Awareness is unique in each of us.
In Awareness there is an expansion
Of horizons of understanding
Of potential possibilities.

Yet Awareness is also about subtlety
Of understanding & of approach .
Of what is beyond bounds
An ability to keenly discern
What is better left unsaid.

Paradoxical truth of awareness…
Awareness is both the reason
For the light of wisdom
And the despair of knowing.

Awareness raises the bar
Of comprehension by nature.
Whats important is not tilting
The balance by ones own doing.

When awareness makes us most vulnerable

To commit the very error

That we may learn to steer away from.

Such is the Paradox of Awareness.

Smile & the world smiles…

I particularly liked this quote I came across recently…

“Smile more than you cry, Give more than you take, and Love more than you Hate.”
– Drake

A beautiful way to be! Nicely summarized.

Will simply add…

In Laughter you nourish yourself

In Generosity you replenish your world .

In love you nurture, nature in and around you!

Quintessence of Management



In management its good to rememberTime is borrowed, so has a priceToil is bought so has a priceEffort is expected in a priced dealBut some things are priceless!They can never be bought.


For they are intrinsic in natureThey come from you, no matter the dealTalk of loyalty, initiative & enthusiasmThey are all intrinsically motivated.





No amount of money can keep them consistentTo have value for time, have value for peopleTo have a dedicated effort, respect the people who are dedicated at workTo lead with care and considerationTo be humane in the ways of management.




For to get respect you have to earn it by showing the way.By deeds of kindness and appreciationNo amount of criticism can do what nurturing in appreciation can do.Appreciation is an evolved method of improving productivity.Such is the quintessence of management.Savvy

Edge of balance

Balancing on the edge of balance

Our lifes, hopes and aspirations

Have a different meaning

For they are sensed in vividity

Tethering, quivering in the now

To the preciousness of time.

Silent in the stillness of being

No matter the applause of achievement

Success takes on a fresher perspective

With all at stake in this now

So very embedded in the vulnerability

In the river of time.

Feeling Good?


At times life takes you places,

That leaves you in a space of a little ambiguity

Where your senses are overwhelmed

And you may feel awe…

The place may speak to you

In a language that you can decipher.


Ask yourself…

Are you feeling lost, yet free?

Are you feeling free and light?

Are you sensing good vibes?

Of being in the right space?

Are you feeling  you are aligned

To the energies of this place

Are you emitting  goodwill

And sensing potency of the now?

Then you are most certainly

In the right path and direction

Yes, you are in a good place.

A Dance Of Thoughts





Imagine space not as something that distances us
But as a liquid connection
That allows resonances
That dances on its own frequencies
Of connections that speaks  for itself
Expressing  emotions
Living life
In the infinite abundance
Of Interconnects in resonance
To this quantum coherence.

Pool of Peace

Sharing my artwork here with my musings on Peace.

In the forest of your mind
Wanders many creatures
Of thoughts,
Great and small
Playing the game
Vying for attention
Fighting for Survival
To be heard and to be listened to
To be acted upon and manifest itself.

Your history and future
Dancing a tango with each other
In this present moment
But in-between and betwixt…

There is a space of quiet
Of all pervading calm
Within lies a lake of stillness
Or call it a pool of peace.

A watering hole of wisdom
A centering space of simplicity
As all illusory creations of the mind
Partake in a regeneration.

As the thoughts refresh themselves
The mind collects itself once more
All is Serene and tranquil inches now
Peace pools in and life evolves…

Find peace within

Yesterday was my mother’s birthday. And I came across this reflection of hers by chance and started reading it, Although she is living far away in another city, I deeply connected with her in every moment as I was reading this. Wishing her a beautiful blessed day!

Finding peace

Happiness is an abstract state which gives us high,
makes us feel positive about everything,
makes us forgive peoples faults, brings a smile in our face n laughter in our mind,
gives us strength,
brings love to our heart,
makes our surroundings beautiful, makes life worth living,
radiates our being irrespective of the outside effects.

Happiness is the real state we are born with. That is our real form, shrouded by the clouds of acquired and induced qualities as we walk along this long path of life. In due course, it gets overshadowed by outside influences that we forget how to be really happy. We start seeking happiness from outside sources forgetting our own storehouse inside us.

Thus starts our dependence. Whether material, emotional, physical, or spiritual, for everything we start seeking help from other people or substances which gradually grow from need-based to the necessity which we cannot live without. In the long run, the very source we think gives us happiness adds nothing but misery. The more u seek outside the more ur inner light dims.

How to come out of this self-induced predicament. Really very hard as the acquired dirt must have become layers of solid sediments. A little Viveka n Vairagya are the tools God has provided us with, to unearth the hidden treasure, of Happiness Within.

Viveka means right understanding, discriminating knowledge n true wisdom.

Vairagya means detachment, dispassion, maintaining a state of mental equilibrium.

Developing both these qualities help us to be in a peaceful happy state irrespective of outer influences knowing their transient nature. The more we delve in these, the nearer we go to our inner self which is the abode of ultimate BLISS.

The ever-changing face of the sky
The dancing flames of the fire,
The soothing flow of the air,
The flowing waves of the water,
The surface of Mother Earth
All just set to put in our mind the transience of Nature.

The rising and setting of the Sun,
The waning and waxing of the
Moon,
The revolution and rotation of the earth,
The cycle of the changing seasons
Just to remind us nothing is forever to stay.

The karmic cycle of birth and death,
The changing phases of lives,
The changing moods of the mind,
The swaying patterns of wealth
Aren’t enough to teach the human mind equanimity and humility?

How many more lessons does one need?

Anjana.

This piece ‘ Finding Peace’ resonates deeply. Especially so in these chaotic times.

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!
