A perspective change

Here is a story share …

Play the battle Drums

A king had many elephants, but one elephant was very powerful, very obedient, sensible and skillful in fighting skills. In many wars, he was sent on the battlefield and he used to return only after getting victory to the king. Therefore, he was the most loved elephant of the king. Time went by and there came a time when the elephant started getting old. Now he was not able to perform as before. Therefore, now the kings did not even send him to the battlefield but still remain a part of his team.


One day the elephant went to the lake to drink water, but his feet got stuck in the mud there and then went on sinking. He tried a lot, but he could not remove himself from the mud. People came to know from the sound of his screams that the elephant was in trouble. The news of the trapping of the elephant also reached the king. All the people, including the king, gathered around the elephant and made various efforts to get him out. But after trying for a long time, there was no way out.


At that time, a old wise retired minister from the kings court was passing by seeing the king and the croud he thought of stopping and seeing what was tha matter. After a quick first inspection and speaking to the king he suggested to the king that the battle drums should be played around the lake. The listeners felt bizarre how the trapped elephant would come out by playing the drums. As soon as the drums of war started ringing, so did the change in the gesture of that troubled elephant.
At first, the elephant slowly stood up and then came out of the mud on his own, shocking everyone.

Reflection

There was no lack of physical ability in the elephant, only the need to infuse enthusiasm within
To maintain enthusiasm in life, it is necessary that humans maintain purposeful thinking & mindset and do not let despair dominate.

In today’s challenging times we all need to infuse ourselves & people around us with Hope & enthusiasm by playing the battle drums that we will again Celebrate Abundance of good health, Joy & Happiness tommorow.

Stop asking people how is tough times treating them instead share the happy moments and what interesting things are happening around you.

There is lots of good thing happening around.

Make sure the battle drums are played to declare not that a war has started but the victory in the battle of difficult times with the support of awesome people like you around.🙏

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.

Everything has a reason to be.

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…
