On repeat mode, currently...


Totally trippy!!!

Today's Ah-ha!

Sometime you find yourself in the middle of nowhere. And sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself... Amen! :)

This never made more sense than now, here, today...

No More Leaving ~ Hafiz

Some point
Your relationship
With God
Become like this:

Next time you meet Him in the forest
Or on a crowded city street
There won't be anymore

That is,
God will climb into
Your pocket.
You will simply just take

The Power of Alignment

Read some more Abe wisdom today and this gave me goose bumps!!

So when you see people asking a lot of other people what they think, you can be sure they have not found their power, because one who does, doesn't give a rip what anyone else thinks, because one who does has found the power of alignment. ~ Abraham

The Answer

Every time I'm grappling with a question, the answer is just not within me, it's jogging alongside, trying desperately to get my attention. All I do is give it an impatient, "Bugger off! Can't you see I'm looking for the answer???"

Luckily for me, it's VERY persistent and not above bumping me on the head! :D

Confessions of a recovering Judger! (1)

"When you have an emotional reaction to what you see, you are judging. That is your signal that you have an issue inside of yourself - with yourself - not with the other person. If you react to evil, look inside yourself for the very thing that so agitates you, and you will find it. If it were not there, you will simply discern, act appropriately, and move on."

Why do you have to be wrong for me to be right?
Why do you have to be bad for me to be nice?
Why do you have to be shackled for me to be free?
Why do you have to be small for me to be big?
Why do I have to pull you down to fly high?
Why do I make it hard for you to make it easy for me?
Why can't you be you and I be I?

When you and I both know that...

... making you wrong does not make me right
... making you bad does not make me nice
... shackling you, shackles me
... making you small, makes me smaller
... pulling you down, grounds me lower...
... making it hard for you, makes it waaaay harder for me...

When I know I love you and you love me...

Follow Your Highest Excitement!

Here's something interesting I came across today...

"This is what you need to understand: following your excitement is not only the driving engine of your reality, it is also the automatic organizing principle.

You don't need to know the how of the details, you just need to act on your excitement. Physical mind is not designed to "understand" how things happen, physical mind is designed to "perceive" how things happened... not how things are "going to" happen. Higher-self does that for you!" ~ Bashar

On Kids...

I guess the best things about having kids are: 

1) they make pictures look fun and colourful, just plain fabulous 
2) they keep you honest and true (to what you say and do.)

A Healthy Relationship...

"A healthy relationship is not “two becoming one”.  That is a recipe for disaster. 

A healthy relationship is two people who stay together because they want to.  They are free to walk away at any point.  Not just free to do so, but capable of doing so on every level, and yet they make that choice to stay together  everyday. You can’t put that kind of commitment on a license.  You can’t have that kind of commitment between two people who need each other. You can only have that kind of commitment between two fully independent individuals who love each other enough to give it a go, another day, and another day, and another day after that."

Today's Goose Bump Dose

"We think we move through the world unseen. But sometimes (just inches away even) is someone who can hold the hard stuff with you. Our vulnerability creates a space for connection." ~ Superhero Journal

Revolution has a different face each time...
Sometimes, it's a rebellion... sometimes, it's an open, honest, unprejudiced conversation...

Keeping It Simple... :)

The wisest words I heard today... On finding out that his "best friend" had come into town and left without even calling him, my 9 year old nephew goes (all the while doing somersaults on the bed) "Doesn't matter, he's still my best friend." :) Oh boy! The lessons kids teach us... :)

Goose bumpy... (SMJ Intro)

Sirf Hangama khada karna mera maqsad nahi, Saari Koshish hai ki ye surat badalni chahiye. Mere seene mein nahi to tere seene mein sahi, Ho Kahin bhi aag, lekin aag jalni chahiye...

Satyamev Jayate - My note to Aamir

I rarely ever interact on TV shows. But SMJ doesn't seem like "just any other show". The first episode aired yesterday and I couldn't help but write to the show maker...Aamir Khan.

Dear Aamir,

Today's episode (6th May 2012) was hard hitting, intensely moving and inspiring of hope.

Along with this, the parallel message that needs to be spread /shared is that women need to stop seeing themselves as victims. Our feelings of  victimhood , further attract such heinous crimes towards us. We need to love and respect ourselves before any one else will.

Our love, respect and confidence for ourselves will help such a movement help us even more.

Thank you, SMJ packs the promised and much needed (about time, really) punch. It's also a brilliant example of stardom well used.

Looking forward to the next episode!!

... and then I realized, being courageous meant being scared and sitting with the fear anyway... :)


I came across this quote on one of my favourite shows, "Extreme Makeover Home Edition". It struck a chord in me...

"It's not always about talking about your feelings. Sometimes, it's about colouring next to someone who understands what you're going through...."

Underneath Our Nose...

When I look at others, I can clearly see what they’re looking for is underneath their nose.  Hmmmmm… makes me wonder what's underneath mine that I'm not seeing, yet… J

The Rainmaker's Story

I came across this fabulous story and just had to share it...

A Chinese village has been besieged by drought and if rain does not come soon, the village will be in desperate straits, suffer famine and probably death. The local people have done all they know how to do. They finally decide to summon a great rainmaker from a distance.

When she arrived and saw the plight of the village, she said, “Build me a straw hut. Give me food and water for five days, and leave me alone.” This they quickly did. The rainmaker went into the straw hut and at the end of four days it rained just in time to save the crops.

The people of the village dragged the poor rainmaker blinking into the light and showered gifts on her, and poured out their affection for saving their village and saving their lives. Somebody took her aside and said, “How did you do it? How do you make it rain?” And she said, “Oh, but you must understand. I felt such discord inside myself, when I came into your village, that I spent that time getting things straight inside myself. I hadn’t ever gotten to the rainmaking part.”

I Love My Nonsense!! :D

It struck me that I put with a lot of nonsense from the world, so I'm going to give myself a break and put up with some more nonsense from myself!!! :)

And so the next time I do something silly, I'll just "Yay!" myself and skip along.... ;)

Friday, 24 February 2012


So, I've been pondering over what next for quite some time now. I even posted it here, on the blog. And so yesterday, it finally came to me that the values that have so far dictated my work-related (and maybe even other) decisions are: Learning, Freedom and Fun; not in  any order of preference.

And this has suddenly given me a great deal of clarity of what to do next... Watch this space for further details!! :)

The Fire of Friendship... :)

A man called Ali is in need of money and asks his boss to help him out. His boss sets him a challenge: if he can spend all night on the top of a mountain, he will receive a great reward; if he fails, he will have to work for free.

The story continues:When he left the shop, Ali noticed that an icy wind was blowing. He felt afraid and decided to ask his best friend, Aydi, if he thought he was mad to accept the wager. After considering the matter for a moment, Aydi answered: ‘Don’t worry, I’ll help you. Tomorrow night, when you’re sitting on top of the mountain, look straight ahead.‘I’ll be on the top of the mountain opposite, where I’ll keep a fire burning all night for you ‘Look at the fire and think of our friendship; and that will keep you warm. ‘You’ll make it through the night, and afterwards, I’ll ask you for something in return.’

Ali won the wager, got the money, and went to his friend’s house. ‘You said you wanted some sort of payment in return.’Aydi said, ‘Yes, but it isn’t money. Promise that if ever a cold wind blows through my life, you will light the fire of friendship for me.’


This picture sparked off a real fun conversation, brought back many a memories and connected some ooooold friends, today... :)
