Healing Moves

Wisdom of Moderation

‘My first intentional practice of Tai Chi began years ago on a rainy day in the month of June. The sweet cadence of the rain in all it’s rhythmic glory, the cleansing nature of the rain was just as wonderfully comforting as much as the experience of Tai Chi, with its movement in stillness and the stillness of its movements.

 As I tried to move in unison with breath and learned to direct the momentum for the movements from the central core of the body to the outward, I could draw the parallels of the simple yet profound principles of Tai chi giving a lifetime’s guidance.

A life lived in the middle path gives one equanimity to see beyond the obvious. To envision the duality of existence enough to understand joy and sorrow, are not something eternal. Life becomes simple and just as easy to live as we make it , letting go of excesses of any kind, which ultimately works towards healing oneself from within.

It only adds to the fact that this moderation makes you want to work at building progressively, instead of  pushing the boundaries and stretching beyond your abilities to the point of probably injuring yourself and giving up altogether.

The rain’s rhythmic tapping on my open window sill, the occasional bursts of cool breeze surrounding me now and then was in tune with my learning to release and melt away the accumulated stresses through conscious gentle outward movements . I felt a few varied sensations coming to me vying for attention, but as soon as my focus returned to simply witness the flow of breath in the movements the very same sensations completely vanished.

It was so peaceful to end the practice with breath awareness and mindful movements that I must add that like everything else in life, Tai Chi must be ideally learned under the guidance of a good teacher to experience the gamut of life enriching experiences it surely has to offer.

As I completed my  practice for the moment , suddenly there was thunder and lightning  signifying the release of feel good endorphins and hopefully parting with some of the tensions within me. This is after all the essence of Tai chi , to be one with Nature and learn to nurture it .

  A humble dedication to Tai Chi form and the powers of the supreme in and around us.

The Journey of Creativity

Photo by Rakicevic Nenad on Pexels.com

If Creativity were to be all yang

Flowing along in infinite abundance

The mystic of this mistress is magnetic

Almost hovering on the hypnotic

And yet…

Creativity is a dance of balance

Of the yin and yang

Omnipresent in the flow.

In the unforgiving toughness

Is the challenge to continue

In her demands to deliver

Is the discipline of approach

In the chiding of the critiques

Is the attempt to evolve

Beyond the punishing schedules.

And in that trusting knowing

Actors act, sculptors sculpt

Writers write, painters paint

Singers sing, dancers dance

Finding purpose in the passion

In the artistry of creativity.

And as art empowers in the connectivity

Life carries on…!

There is a pool

I received this beautiful forward years ago that I cherish. And I so enjoy seeing it every once in a while.

A few musings…

There is a pool
I often sit by
with my thoughts
In fact all of me.

Its a pool that inspires
Creativity in collaboration
Its a pool that invites
Connections in association.

A pool of collectives
That move me beyond
The rut of mediocrity
To an all expansive space.

A pool of equanimity
That keeps me balanced
A pool centered inside
That aligns it all to the core.

A pool is an interesting place, as it is allowing yet contained.The circle of thoughts, in a pool allow space of contemplation.

Without the hurry and haste, to sense the moment as it is.

Every now and then choose to sit with/by your own pool of peace sensing the peace you already have.

Keep the faith!

Every moment can bring
Its own share of challenges
Sometimes in situations beyond hope.
And you are left with decisions to make.

When unfairness is met
With hope and faith
Life turns around
Yes everyone is challenged

In one way or another
But the wisdom in the challenge
Is to use these challenges
As stepping stones
To your success.

Life is changing
Every minute
Life is never the same
Its ok to wait and lie a little low

You need to trust nature
To move and shift things
What was lost is gained again
What was your deepest pain
Becomes a point of pleasure

Change is the only constant
My friend
Move beyond these limitations
Of this now
There is so much more to envision
So much more to accomplish.

Life is meant to flow!

Expression

In these times of uncertainty
While you are making ends meet
Have you looked up at all.
Acknowledge to ones around you.

Yes they are each unique
Choose to communicate better.
Listen actively
Show empathy share a laugh.


Indulge their words & build connection
Between hearts in your home
Stay humble not busy all the times
Just to escape  making a connection.

Your cellphones can wait
It doesn’t  need your time
Your book can wait
They can be read later.


But your loved ones
Cant wait as their time is limited
They need your expression
They  need to feel loved.
They need your attention.

Express yourself
While you can!
And you certainly can!

On Action

An action that builds confidence is better than inaction which arises from fear.

At times the action is a success, at times , may be the action needs a new direction to be successful but action is better than no action.

On Attitude


Our perception
The way we see
Changes the way
We take action
Our attitude
Can make or break
Our way of being. 



Its all in us
The ability
Of changing
Our ways
Towards understanding
Towards realizing
Towards learning
There is always more…
Than what we choose to presume
The way we express
The way we carry ourselves
Our attitude says it all!

Imbibing with gratitude!

Imbibing with gratitude!

We all know there are many lessons in nature and if we begin to seek we can find an inspiration and insight as well as solutions to everything in nature.

However, we are part of nature and nature is in each of us…so much wisdom is waiting to be tapped from people we know!

On Learnings

There are many people that you can learn so much from around you.
All it takes is acknowledging.
To use discernment as to what you can learn
And having space in your self to imbibe the good.

There is an uncle of mine,who has immense thirst for knowledge his memory and retention and not to mention the witty comebacks are worthy of appreciation.
In fact there isn’t a topic in the world which he doesn’t have something brilliant to say … I respect this ability and skill in him.
His memory may be innate or nurtured but his ability to converse on the subject of your choice and through his take on the subject, humorous or serious is truly commendable.
And what’s interesting is this ability hasn’t diminished over the years only got stronger! God bless him!

There is another relative who has mastered the ability to speak.. Although she may never believe it,her ability to critically examine and analyze is highly honed, and she can tipple the conversation in her favor easily amongst her relatives in no time. She will give fantastic examples that one just cannot beg to differ. Her opinions and reasoning can employ every human emotion that can be brought in. What’s beautiful is she may herself never know her talents but unknowingly she has been perfecting it from she where she was. Suffice to say she has lived in the company of brilliant orators as her relatives, who may have helped her imbibe it, without their own knowledge. God bless her!

Sometimes knowledge is best learned in time gradually improvising. Interesting to hear her converse and truly valuable learnings from her.

Another aunt is the doer. Always ready to rise to the occasion & go out her way to help. She is an innovative creator. She, too, is a great orator but sadly hasn’t been appreciated enough for all that she does.There is so much she has done for so many people at times, to the point of being personally overwhelmed. But that’s just who she is.
May God give her strength and bless her.

One more aunt who is full of life, enthusiasm and cheer. When she is around in the room there is no dull moment!She draws people in with her kind words of appreciation. She is well known for her amicable disposition and good nature. She is also a great conversationalist. Her strength is her charm, curiousity and willingness to learn and understand anything. She too is blessed with great memory. What’s beautiful is her ability to have fun.
She is someone who is not only appreciative but also extremely thankful.

So much gratitude for the learnings from them !

May God bless them all and keep them safe and healthy.🙏🏼

Although I have started writing this post with few people from my family I know I can go on to write about many around me because I have learned so much from them by them being who they are.
Here it is not the education profession capabilities, degrees or achievements that I am speaking of, but it is just my reflections on the energy and emotions that they can stir in every interaction with them .

In everyone’s life there are people from the family who teach you many things. They influence your life inextricably even though they may not be physically present together over the years.

Be grateful to every person for they are full of some unique potential that you can learn from. Most important is the ability to continue the practice of seeing the good in people. Trust me there is always much to discover.

We are all blessed with countless living human books around us. They are a treasure house of their life experiences and have a uniqueness all their own.

Let’s cultivate ways to imbibe the learnings in gratitude!

A price to pay!

Everything I want
Comes with a cost
So ring me up, Put it on my tab
Whatever the cost I’m good for it!!!

A recent series on Netflix Spinning Out starts with these above lines from the song In the water by Jay Downer.

In reflection perhaps it is something every one of us can identify with at one point or the other.

In times of chaos and changes
Where lines get blurred
Between the future and past
In the now that yesterday brings us to
And the moments that can design itself to be
All our intentions are the reason
That things begin to happen
And then when it does
All our truths start to matter.

Life stares at you before you blink
And you got to learn to keep your eyes open.

No more is it make believe
For when reality dawns
It is reciprocal arrangement all the way!
You pay for what you want,
It comes to you with a price to pay!

Are you You?

We all have our good and bad days.

We can seem totally confident and be raring to go one day and feel completely strained and stressed out on another day.

We are only human and its perfectly ok to feel so.

We don’t have to prove anything to anyone.

It’s our life and we have just this life and this moment with us, if we are not living with joy in our heart then perhaps we have some questions we need to answer for ourselves.

Ask yourself these questions honestly…

Do you dare to be as you are?

Do you express yourself without doubts and fears?

Do you mince words, avoid stepping forward, play too safe

That you hardly dare to live your life?

Do you wear what you like?

Feel comfortable with what you wear

Or choose to conform to fashion trends or what’s expected of you?

Do you eat with all your heart?

Do you binge or fast in guilt or insecurity?

Or do you care to nourish and nurture yourself with food?

Do you check your weight?

To be sure you are in a healthy range.

Or do you find yourself too often on the scales, almost every day?

Do you dare to speak your mind,

To voice what’s in your heart.

Or shut up in fear of ridicule, of what others will say?

Do you measure your words to talk

In fear of being judged or criticized.

Or…to be the best version of you.

Are you happy in your skin

Do you care about your appearance

To the extent that it ruins your day

Or to feel good for yourself.

Remember you are most beautiful when you wholeheartedly accept the way you are.

Do you wake up because you have to?

Or do you have the joy of waking up…

To a new dawn in the hope of possibilities.

Make this moment special the best you can as you are.

Remember every moment in every day is a challenge

It sometimes gets easier or even tougher in the ups and downs.

It’s all in your journey and the way you take.

You have the power to choose your path

The choice is with you

To groan or be grateful

To make it bitter or better

It’s all up to you now!

Choose well!

The Slow Roast…

The Slow Roast….

Need for stringent action!

There is a good amount of data emerging that people are suffering, to various degrees, from living next to cell phone towers and other high-frequency radiation emitting antennas, which emit microwaves around the clock.

According to Professor Franz Adelkofer, a leading scientist in the area of biological effects of EMF fields:

“There is real evidence that hyper frequency electromagnetic fields can have geno-toxic effects. And this damaged DNA is always the cause of cancer.

We’ve found these damaging effects on the genes at levels well below the safety limits. That’s why we think it’s urgent to base our safety limits on the biological effects, not the thermic ones.

They should be based on biology, not on physics.”

There are many mindless advances in technology without ethical considerations, care or concern for human welfare.

It is simple knowledge that with 5G the Roast is turning to Burn… so many researchers agree upon this with documents to support it . And yet the common man is helpless in the face of lurking dangers of modern technologies.

There is so much more than meets the eye when it comes to the topic of radiation and the sources are growing exponentially.

We are being bombarded with wi fi signals and Electro Magnetic frequencies more than we know wherever we are in the world today!.

Not only airports or malls our offices our markets and entertainment zones but also our own homes have become dangerous for our wellbeing.

Where do we go ? What is the answer?

What are your thoughts on this?

Embody Love

My personal mantra…

Live the life you love and love the life you live!

What happens when you embody love…

You reinforce the power of trust

You reiterate the value of life

You reinstate respect for life

Every life that is powered by love

Is tuned into deeper consciousness

Knowing there is always something more…

Than just the superficial nature.

Threaded interconnects that runs across

In this web of life and living.

Love connects us all

As we embody love

All roads leads home.

Such is the path of love.

Embody love!

Secrets of Living Well!




Secrets of living life well are no secrets at all.

Healthy mind, heart and body is about thinking well, eating well and  being active in life.
Good health is all also about being able to live happy with cheer enthusiasm  and zest for life.
A life lived lovingly without feeling shackled, exhausted and fearful is well lived.
A life is best lived that feels every now matters enough to help make a positive difference.

Smile heartfully

Have you smiled from the heart?

Let the smile out from within!

Why not smile when you still can

At times its a tough life indeed!

But a heartfelt smile is such a treat

Be grateful for the smiles

In giving and receiving

Celebrate the power of a smile

Create positivity! Share a smile.😃
