Joy vs Excellence

About children, the most fantabulous aspect is that they’re totally aligned with their joy..

Bubbles, butterflies, jumping in the muddy puddle.. they do stuff cuz they derive joy out of it ..

My son pretends to play a variety of instruments, none with an intention of mastering the knowledge 🙂 lol

He does it because he feels joyful as his hands beat the tabla or he pretends to play the fake flute..

He loves the idea of it!!

We as kids knew it! What happened then?

We grew up? The faulty adults pushed us into believing we wouldn’t be good enough till we excelled at it??

Complete rubbish!!

Look at prodigys or famous people who have mastered art without learning it!! They simply followed their joy, with a leap of faith that appeared as if they were ‘gifted’..

Of course they were gifted in their relentless belief of the joy they pursued, without an iota of doubt!! N yes, that does make them gifted as compared to the ones who modified themselves to be un’gifted’

When we pursue our joys with doubts, they seem to block the flow of our gifts!!

Pursue the joy simply n forget about everything else!! There, we are all masters ♥️

The ‘Happiness’ JOB!

When we say it’s not our job to keep others happy, the reverse of it is equally true! 

It can never be the job of others to see that we are happy! We may have grown up with the flawed premise that it’s our parents’ job, our friends’ job, our spouse’s job to keep us happy..can’t ever be..

Being happy, feeling happy is a choice that one can only choose for oneself. We would love to do stuff that makes someone else happy. The intentions can be set straight, yet whether the person chooses happiness or not, that’s up to him/her..

The only responsibility we own is of our own joy!!

N the entire world will fall short to change my mind, once I have chosen to stay happy!!

It’s a mindful road, one where I have to be super observant of how I’m treating myself. Yet, it’s fun!!

Cheers to celebrating one’s own joy!!

Trust

Trust vs fear, fear comes easily thanks to generations of programming our minds with the belief ‘fear is what keeps us safe’

While our brain does that so as to not let us step outside our comfort zone, thus keeping us safe (sighs), our soul really can take care of it..

Trusting that everything will work out is a far better feeling than what if it doesn’t..

N by practice, we can nudge ourselves into making this choice!!

This is only n only a reminder to my self, that trust is all I’ve got!! Cuz it’s gotten me here, to a career that I can finally call mine (after sampling more than three careers that failed)

N it’s gotten me home!!

Trust n trust more folks♥️

JOY????

It’s underrated!! Completely.. Cuz it’s free n can be multiplied irrespective of resources available..
Cuz It’s too good for our health, and it adds years to our life..
Cuz It’s spreads faster than a virus, can be sensed and detected by pets, and other living beings..
Cuz It’s in harmony with nature..
Cuz it doesn’t cause any stress or problems, for us to worry about n the solution makers ..it leaves them out of work..

Yeah!! JOY!!

It’s underrated..

The focus of generations after generations is survival??? seriously??? 
I thought we were covered there..even the animals in the circle of life know the fittest survive..
We are Human BEings..Survival isn’t why we chose earth?.
We chose earth to push our limits, our boundaries, to know our true power..

But the easiest way to do that was to find our JOY!!

Our JOY!!!
No one ever asked me to follow joy. I see my kid doing exactly that..

How come he knows it so easily n I don’t?? Well, now I do!!

Is it really such a tough question, or it’s too boring?? 

Why don’t we ask ourselves what brings us JOY?? N do what does..

If we start doing a few things that bring us joy, regularly.. It’s easier to find joy in everything..

It really is that simple!

There’s no answer as to why something brings us joy..

Sitting on the swing? Watching movies? Making music? Cooking? Writing? Partying? Hosting parties? Studying? Teaching?

Project management? Website designing?? Any designing?? Craft?? Driving??? Photography? Business?? Managing human resources?? Any resources???

Where is your JOY?

Let me ask you, to please find it!! Let us be a generation that trusts that things work out, life is easy, life is abundant and joy is everywhere ..or atleast where we know we will find it..

It’s not tough!! It really is easy..❤️

The Richness called LIFE❤️

There’s absolute richness …
in words of appreciation, that flow from the heart..
in hugs and cuddles, and kisses that come unasked..

There’s something priceless…
in the chirping of birds, especially when they’re 
reflecting your joy, thru their voice..

There’s an unlimited worthiness..
in HAVING ‘the’ thing that a person wants..N yet the worth grows 
in the GIVING away of it..n in the person WANTING to take it from YOU!!!!!

There’s an unmeasurable joy…
in the countless, tiny serendipitys, that are orchestrated specially for ME❤️
Especially when they’re disguised..n I recognize them…

There’s an unquantifiable value I feel inside..
that makes me feel INFINITE… when I paint, also when I hug a tree..
These emotions make the oceans feel smaller n the galaxy a tad bit tinier..


There’s an overflow of abundance..
In that moment, when you find the perfect tree to hold, a blossom to wear,
n a person to click it, n the capture turning out magnificent❤️

I feel like the richest woman alive,
When my son wipes my tears ….even the ones that roll out of pure joy

I feel whole and abundant…
When someone receives my gift..wholeheartedly n sees the value in it that I created..

I feel unmeasurable JOY..
When I feel beautiful in this body, irrespective of how it appears 

I feel worthwhile..
When I’m able to see others from a space of love rather than judgment..

I feel whole and pure..an un describable emotion..
When I’m in nature..the expression of which puts words to shame..

It’s a shame, we feel empty inside..
when there is so much joy meant for us to grab..

It’s unfortunate, we equate ourselves with tiny rectangles of paper, 
that change value with time…

Is life really so cheap, that we trade it for the tangibles??

Is life so complex, that we kill the experience cuz the outcomes seem unwanted??

I choose n desire to feel this joy, n simplicity,
Every waking day!! 

Feeling the joy that it takes to write this post, is what makes my life much richer ..

PS: My first canvas, (technically Second, cuz I made the first one for myself) found itself a happy owner!! N yes, it moved me and the one who received it beyond words..

Yayyyyy!!!!

A letter to my son, for when he is older..

Dear Ekaansh,

It’s so tough yet easy at the same time to be a parent of the most beautiful kid I could’ve ever asked for. I trust and know that I’d be a great parent, especially knowing for sure that you’re going to do beautifully well in your life.

It feels like you’re my teacher n I’m the student,more than me- the mom n you- the toddler.

You’ve taught me n are constantly teaching me, of how beautiful n easy life is! You teach me to marvel at the beauty right around us, n intrigue me with your intrigue about the ordinary yet strikingly awe filled stuff.

You teach me the importance of having a voice, and you advocate to me the crucial aspect of being who one is, irrespective of what the flawed adults have got to think. You’ve made me realize the power of intentions, n words spoken from the heart. 

You’ve taught me to revel in the imperfection, and choose differently. I love the way you paint….the colors flowing out of the picture, and black flowers n colorless strawberries with multi colored seeds. You leave me awe struck with your imagination.

You teach me the art of ‘JOY’ n boy!! we have so much fun together, be it looking out the window, painting or reading, playing with water during bath time or simply being outdoors with you! You’ve taught me to smile more often, you show me how you allow the universe to distract you into looking at what’s more beautiful..n I follow you well!!

I love the way you express yourself, you ask for hugs when you need them. And you say NO when you don’t feel like giving me some!!! I love that about you. 
I love how you don’t respond to people who don’t touch your heart, ( even though I try to seek their approval by asking you to say hi to them, and slowly I’ve stopped seeking it)! And you just don’t apologize for shouting at someone who acts in a mean way to you. I love that.

I love the clarity you have even before you’re 2.5 years!! You definitely are my most beautiful gift in this whole wide BIG world, and please know deep in your heart, that every time I say it to you, I mean it two hundred percent!! I say it more often cuz I mean it every single time.

The reason why being your mom is tough – I have to be super mindful that I don’t ruin it for you. I’ve got to be mindful, when I tell you that life is tough, cuz it’s not tough really!

I’ve got to be extra mindful when I ask you to be super protective, cuz I’m responsible for ingraining into your innocent head that life is difficult n we ‘need’ to protect ourselves.

In short, I’ve got to be Intuned, so as to not funk you out of the ‘knowing’ of who you are! 

The reason it’s easy being your mom – you know it!! You know who you are! You just Won’t let me digress you out of it! You won’t take my word for it! You will know that you know better. 

And I’d love to be your student, quietly observing how beautifully you’re gonna make this world your play ground, like you already have. I’d love to be holding your hand, when in truth you’re the one hand holding me❤️😢

You came after a very long time in my life. Especially when I was almost prepared to live my life without a child. N thank you for making me wait!! That wait, helped me realize how much power my thoughts (all of them were then negative) had on my life.

N only when I stopped thinking, I got myself out of my own way!! 

N YOU, my most beautiful gift stepped in!! 

Please guide me as I intend to guide you along this easy n love filled path called life, where our thoughts make us or break us, our intentions make all the difference and our love for ourselves allows us to love this world with all our heart❤️🎁

Today, you said these very same words to me, when I stopped myself from ‘stopping you to play with your food’ – Thank you Amma! You’re my gift in the whole wide big world 😢

I had tears full of love!!! 

The same love you have for yourself, for me n for everyone else in your world!!

Thank you Ekaansh!

I intend to hold this space for you,(like you hold it for me) n let you make your choices irrespective of how the world chooses to ‘label’ them, n remind you eternally how beautiful n full of love you are!!

N how proud I am of you! Every single moment of my life❤️🎁

Thank you!

Your student,

Amma❤️🎁

PS: all the love n appreciation I get from across the world, the popularity, the purpose of Intuned, all the great work we’re doing n all the places we’re gonna go- it’s all thanks to my lil teacher, YOU❤️🎁

Ten tips to tune into your highest vibration!


This is gonna be a short and quick post, cuz tuning in to ones highest vibration is as simple as it’s tough!

Ten quick tips here:

1. Look out any window, observe the greenery and breathe. If you choose to, observe the color of the leaves, the shape, listen to birds chirping, and feel the abundance around.❤️🎁

2. Especially when using fb, feel the joy when you see happy pictures of your friends, family members or even your own pics. Offer gratitude❤️🎁

3. Allow yourself that joy, you’ve held yourself back from. That sweet treat, that extra hour of tv or fb or may be bunking the gym for a day, whatever it is! You deserve it❤️🎁

4. Day dream about beautiful scenarios of vacations in places you’ve deeply desired to visit! Imagine them happening and share with others your desire to be there❤️🎁

5. Share your meal, pocket money, salary, lunch , whatever that you love with someone who also deserves to have it. Share as much as you please❤️🎁 yes SHARE❤️🎁

6. Tell your family members, how much they mean to you. In words, letters, on fb, in messages, however! Let them know they are a gift in your life, n offer gratitude for their presence ❤️🎁

7. Smile at strangers, and pass on the gratitude! Say hi if they do❤️🎁 say hi even if they don’t. Feel the warmth of your heart and let it spread across❤️🎁

8. If doing this more often is tough, do it once a day. Do something that pleases you, and fills you with joy irrespective of what others say or think about you.

9. Be you! Irrespective of the adjectives. Lazy, angry, loving, forgiving, emotional, kiddo, sweet, sexy whatever!! Just be YOU! That is exactly why you are alive, right?❤️🎁

10. Let others be too!! Quit your judging hat n allow others to be who they are.not everyone has to think like you. Appreciate differences and let them coexist.

This is all for today.

Lots of love and great vibes..
