The way…

Love is the way

For all of us

As each of us matters

Somehow somewhere

We are all connected

In the infinite plan

And each of us

Needs to become responsible

To make a meaningful difference

For life to thrive than just survive

We need to be respectful

Towards each other

To gain the trust & faith

That makes the world

A better place to live in

For all of us

Love is the way

You are enough for you!

Truly nothing is insurmountable

There is in you, the power

That manifests when you need it most

You may not know the strength

And capabilities that you are carrying.

But it is always there with you

Simply Trust in yourself

To be there for you!

You are more than enough for you!

When heart speaks the world hums along…

Positively speaking.

Whether it is today, in these times of uncertainty or other… a positive approach to life and living is deeply rewarding.

This is indeed wonderful as an attitude to cultivate towards living life. Being positively enriching & encouraging is truly the best way to help make a difference.

But the trick is in fine balancing the emotions that manifest along the way.

Embodied Practice of Empathy

When you practice sharing positive vibes consistently, you are putting a lot of hope and faith out in the world.

Yet you need to be empathic to yourself, care to understand your own emotions as well, by accepting and acknowledging them, without getting embroiled in them .

Make sure to acknowledge what is happening with your own life.

Speak from the heart.

All that is happening in the world today can be disheartening . So when you are out, sharing positive vibes make sure that you are internalizing them too. Sustaining a spirit of hopefulness is the key driver for a positive mindset . The world needs doses of positive attitude in thoughts words and deeds.

Authenticity of Attitude.

Making sure to feel from your own heart before you share these words of hope is a worthy practice to adopt.

Whatever said or written,words are mere words But when you begin to respect and respond to the emotions sensed in the feelings that arise you begin to see the world in its most vulnerable state.

When heart speaks the world hums along…

Whispers of wisdom

In the din of moment

Is the quiet reflection

Of thoughts in musing

Like a whisper in all its subtlety

Like a soft caress of a breeze

Like a feeling wafting through.

The soul knows…

Unnoticed, unobserved often

Yet felt by one and all in consensus

At one point or the other

That is sensed in the being.

For its the heart that senses…

Whispers that speaks to the soul,

Wherever you are, you know…

Wisdom speaks, to the willing listener.

The Pendulum Mind

The Pendulum Mind

Are you swinging  back and forth
Into thoughts of past happenings
And of the future, yet to happen
Are you continuously sifting.

In a state of imbalance
Switching  between  thoughts
Do you feel out of focus
With your reality in this now.

Then perhaps  you need to rethink
And realign yourself
To be present in this moment
And not lose the now.

Yes the mind shifts without notice
For it is designed to do so
In survival mode to comb and seek
AsIt searches for possibilities missed.


It creates associations to bridge over the brink
Time to adjust the swinging  pendulum of mind,
To calibrate it to move with time
Than against or before time.

For it needs to be aligned
To tune into the current track at play
To be there in mindfulness 
Of this very moment

Sensing the fragrance

Dinner under a lemon tree Capri

I saw this picture and paused…

For it spoke of abundance of being.

Of Sight, sense and smell.

Emoting in the sensing

Evoking in freshness of fragrance

Nature is abundance personified

Rewards aplenty, with fruits to share

The little joys of dining together

Socializing seem like a dream

With the world in its now from here.

Yet the picture paints cheer & hope.

Of giving and living generously.

Happiness is in the sensing

Have a wonderful weekend 😀

Reaching beyond …

Often the difference

Between mediocrity

And excellence

Is in the ability

In reaching beyond

To go the extra mile

For a cause, a passion

In dedicated perseverance

Towards a larger purpose

That is where life feels most alive.

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…❗

For the love of books

A book bound or otherwise

Is a treasure to an ardent reader

Who knows the emotions sensed,

In the company of a good book

Of times, well spent in the joy of reflections.

Reading is a beautiful voyage of discovery… of new learning and associations in assimilation.

Books, that transport us back and forth in time in a moment.

Books, that beckon us to a world of imagination.

Books, that create the magic of words

Books, that speak of truths and illusions

Books, that contain stories of life & living

Have you a favorite book that comes to mind immediately?

On Team Management

Team Management

Today the world is expanding rapidly on many fronts inspite of shrinking communication time and reachability across the world…. the fact is, organizations are confronted with a multigenerational workplace.

Values and beliefs that was so far held by the world are finding new definitions and its difficult to catch up with the changing trends. New words of communication are coined every day and the generations suddenly finds themselves alien to each other.

So for organizations to acclimatize to a changing world, the old patterns of thoughts and mindsets need fresh perspective…

Time and again a revision of what’s redundant or what cannot work in a fast changing world needs identification but with discernment as there is much wisdom garnered in the experiences of life and living.

Here are 6 A’s worth imbibing in work places to sustain teams and evolve for the better.

1. Acceptance

Accept there is a place for every one… be inclusive of the diversity… Accept that the differences are what is unique to the person and teams need people with diverse intelligence to take it to the next level. Every stage comes along with some learnings.

2. Acknowledge

Acknowledge the value of interdependence at work strengthening a culture of inclusiveness. Importance of co-operation in collaborative work cannot be stressed enough.

3. Allowance

Allow the expression of new ideas, suggestions and let it find listening ears no matter which team or who it comes from.

4.Appreciation

Appreciate and celebrate the work done, even the little wins help to motivate the team. Appreciation is an evolved method of correction.

5. Alignment

Align the set of achievable goals of teams with the mission & vision of the organization. More the alignment the faster and easier the channelling of communication by maintaining open communication greater the chance of successful endeavors.

6. Accountability is being accountable about to being able take responsibility at all times and own it.

As a Consultant with a deep interest in Wellness, at work this is what I facilitate day in and out especially so, in these uncertain times.

From applications of art and movements to creating space for dialogues to understand shifting mindsets & perspectives I have been mentoring diverse teams at work places.

Every team afterall, is made of unique individuals but the issues faced as a team are often similar.As a result of interaction and the scope of work different patterns of team dynamics are created.

If you have been responsible to manage teams to collaborate effectively….

Do share what kind of challenges have cropped up in your teams and how have you managed them.

Would love to understand more.

Awaiting awareness

Hope blooms in my heart …

As I awaken to the bright blue sky
There is a sight for me behold across the window
Of swaying daffodils in the gentle morning breeze…

Glistening in the new morning
Are the dew crystals on its hopeful golden petals…
Drinking in the energies of dawn.

I partake the joy of this dancing flower
And my feelings take a turn
When I truly begin to believe
Hope blooms in my heart...

This above poem came from my little attempt at Magnetic poetry based on a pre set list of words from Rahuls post that served to inspire.

Here are a few words that I realized I have left from this above list… for someone else to  include in a couplet or two…

Never, Keep, belong

Feel free to add a verse or two!

All Is A Matter Of Attitude

All is a matter of attitude

We create our lives in every now

As we choose to think and be

Our lifes moment aligns itself.

As each individual life begins to see

The value of self awareness and hopefulness.

Life evolves for one and all

Better communities to nations…

We as a world, are more powerful

Than what we choose to believe …

For we are our own changemakers

War or peace is a choice we have with us.

Take nothing for granted

Take nothing for granted

There is always a reason

For things to be, where they are

As they are, however they are…

Let your heart be ever grateful

For things that you have in this now.

And for that which passed you by…

All is well …in this now.

Stay thankful

And take nothing for granted!
