Coming of a becoming..

Love has its own beautiful way of unfolding.Of welcoming you into its depths as if it was a trap. Getting you all tangled and caught, unaware.

At times you’re yourself. At times you’re everything but that.  

love at the very core

 

There’s self love that warms you up, assists you in dumping all that guilt. And then there’s this love that allows you to just be. Kind of lets you go away from all the ideas of ideals in your head.

Allows you to be lazy, angry or whatever you’re trying to ‘un’- be. Also pours so much love into you as if you were the next big change the world needs. Yeah, that feeling of love pours you with love, believing you are what the world needs…

And I guess that’s when you stop being yourself..

Cuz you aren’t aware, you’ve slowly started becoming your spouse, tolerating everything that once bothered you…or may be you’ve become your mom, who wishes the best all the time or may be your kid who has fun and play on his mind all the time..

Where have you disappeared dear beauty? This world needs you!!!

And here I am! Becoming more and more beautiful each day, sans makeup or a chic wardrobe..

Simply being that love..

Simply becoming love…

I’ve heard that somewhere ‘love means you’re slowly losing your mind!’

Yeah I guess I am..

Losing my mind yet gaining my heart, one loaded and bursting with love..

Love.. Exactly where im gonna vanish ..one day or may be night..

With love,

Love

Forgiveness and tolerance

There is no end to emotions like hatred and acts of violence! Country after country, religion after religion, colour after colour, gender after gender,gender roles after gender roles,species after species! Where does it stop?

Is it really so hard for us to feel oneness? That we all are alive, we all need similar necessities like food,oxygen, clothes, a roof to live under and above all love?

We’re trying to get one up, by killing/hurting our own kind! And where do we think it’s going to take us? 

Watching this movie ‘little boy’ was an eye opener for me. I was left wondering, what could possibly be the way to bring this world, this beautiful world feel all the love? 

Where does all the hatred come from? I guess it comes from our egos, that expect the world to behave in a certain way. When our expectations aren’t met, the easiest option is hate! I wasn’t treated well, so I hate. My parents weren’t treated well so I hate. My country, my colour, my gender wasn’t treated well so I HATE!!

Is it really so easy to hate? To hurt others? Aren’t we hurting ourselves, our own kind, our own fellow ‘living beings’ ? 

Where does this post lead me? The only take away, capable of being acted upon,at least for me, is forgiveness and tolerance! I wish each one of us, all of us who are alive today, choose to tolerate one another, choose tolerance over hurt. If not all of us, at least me!

And believe me, it isn’t really easy! When someone you love judges you, I see a really big hole in my energy field draining me, and I see the person happily working on that emptiness to make it bigger n bigger. Can they help it? May be its their emptiness that just expands to our energy field😔😢

The weight of expectations we allow ourselves to carry – that’s the factor that needs to go..

If we can forgive and tolerate ourselves for every ‘wrong’ that we perceive we’ve done, I guess we can forgive any one and everyone else. Charity as they say, begins at home. All we need is to have a big heart to say ‘it’s okay you! You goofed up and it’s okay!’ Whoever the ‘you’ is..

Whether it is ourself or any one else. Doesn’t matter. What matters is the fact that, that ‘you’ is forgiven!!

John Lennon’s ‘imagine’ is something I ‘imagine’ too. I believe in it too. Il do my little to get there 🙂


Lessons from nature

As I look around, all the greenery, the nature – they seem to be living a different life!
A life of trust, a life of giving, a life of serving others and a life of surrendering to the highest will!!
For the sake of humans, nature has always been accommodating , not complaining!! It gives us ..with joy and when we choose to destroy it, it gives in to our motives assuming (I’m sure they assume so) that its the divine will..

its so beautifull!!!

All they know is to exist, the leaves – they know to be green, move with the wind, when the seasons change they know they have to fall and they fall!! For them knowing and experiencing is one and the same..

They have no conflict! Of knowing one thing and experiencing the other.. They are at peace irrespective of whether they’re alive and kicking or whether they’re burning and dead..

If its really that easy to exist, simply breathing and giving in to the divine will, why are we experiencing conflict?

Of competition and perfection !!!!

As children though no one may have intentionally done so, we have come across comparisons..

People say it as an observation but the feeling of competition gets created.. No one ever tells us how perfect each one of us is ..

And why will anyone tell us? No one ever told them.. Each person has only been taught and told about their shortcomings and weaknesses..

No one ever told them how complete and perfect they were!!
We never felt it as children and so we will never be able to tell it to our children..

The chain needs to break somewhere na?? I have learned about so many personality types that I can appreciate the qualities that each personality type brings with them.

But one can easily mess this up by comparing the personality types!! What vibrance an extrovert brings along , it can never be compared to the stillness and reflecting ability of an introvert!! Then why compare the two??

Each one of is perfect in our own way and we have to kinda keep saying this to ourselves so that we can save the trouble for our future generation..

I remember one f my friends saying the only competition that works is self competition!! Being better than what we were before 🙂

I guess even if we don’t – the universe is perfect and when the time comes things will change , one person at a time 🙂

A sense of coming home???

Have you felt this nice feeling of finding your way back home?
A feeling like wow, things are now falling in place like everything seems sync’d and it’s like how a traveller loses track for a while and then finds his way back..

Have you experienced anything of that sort?

I’m feeling that way!! Yesterday as I was waiting at the airport, I met an acquaintance and a friend- these were 2 people I hadn’t met in like at least 5 to 7 years..

But the way I could instantly reconnect was astonishing – for me as an individual.. I had stopped being this trusting person, this person whose soul would light away with connections 🙂

And it surely felt like coming home:-)
The power of connections always amazes me.

How we meet people during journeys and they continue to be in lives there after..

After all all of us need a listening ear, some warmth of the heart, someone to smile to .. And the universe makes sure we always have such chances..

Have you felt this feeling of coming home?
I did for sure yesterday 🙂

The awaited ‘Promotion’= a distant dream? Are you sure you really want it???

There can be such a big world inside of us & we may be completely unaware of it!!
No wonder why Coaches are such a necessity today 🙂

Everyone of us, may think we know everything about our life but the truth is far off! We may think we want that promotion but may be the thought of that extra responsibility or spending more time at work is pulling us away..

Do we know for ourselves, what is it that we exactly want? Do we really want that promotion?

What is it about your work that attracts you to it?

~ The opportunity to help others
~ Opportunity to specialise in your field
~ The possibility of making relationships beautiful for you and others around you
~ Growth aspects /learning and growth opportunities
~ Supporting others in creating & overcoming challenges to lead a more fulfilling n challenging life
~ Making money for yourself and others..

The list could be long.. Could it be that your career is just a milestone in your life n not the entire journey?
Where as many of our peers here are looking at stability, there could be many who want something more..

May be we already have what we want! Yet we look at those who have stability and wonder if something’s wrong with us?

Money, status, stability, property could be must have’s for some people! For some others the thrill of moving, travelling, learning, constantly changing could be a must have!!

There’s nothing wrong with changing careers or changing places or making moves constantly!! Making sure, your family (and most importantly your spouse) understands your need for change – it definitely is a ‘must do’

Knowing what one wants – clearly & then going a step forward to communicating the same with important people in your life is very important for peace and happiness to prevail in your home 🙂

Can you pause for a minute & think for yourself, where are you fitting into this right now?
And please take few more minutes to share with us your story!!

Love

I am an ARTIST because…

I AM AN ARTIST n Thank God for that 🙂

I am an ARTIST because…

That’s the one and only one way, I feel most comfortable existing!!

I am an ARTIST because…

Creativity is one of the greatest gift I have received, without which my life would be simply INCOMPLETE..

I am an ARTIST because…

being an ARTIST is like having beautiful wings that allow me to fly to whichever place I want to be on this earth or beyond

I am an ARTIST because…

it gives me a good nights sleep and it gives me the peace of mind,of living a life completely aligned to my deepest values

I am an ARTIST because…

it allows me to break all rules, make new rules and break them too and yet live a life full of satisfaction and contentment

I am an ARTIST because…

spontaneity is like oxygen for me & creativity is like food for my soul

I am an ARTIST because…

there is no other way for me to exist

I am an ARTIST because…

I AM AN ARTIST!!
