Rumi’s Soulful Advice on #LOVE

1623741_10152237443826810_980244016_nWhatever you know or dont – Only LOVE is real. ~ Rumi

Rumi’s words have been a source of solace to my soul for a very long time. I grew up listening to my wise and philosophical dad quote Rumi on many occasions and then when I did actually grow up, I began to slowly understand the depth of his words. To this day, his words, his philosophy on all things love and life hits home for the heart centred Sufi girl in me.

All those who know me, know how much I LOVE “love”. And, when it comes to understanding the many layers of love…none other than Rumi’s words have the power to tug at the heart. In many a troubled times, his words have worked like a balm for my heart and soul. Continue reading

5 Essential Yoga Principles for Positive Thinking‘You are what you think!

But how do we train our brain? Yoga is your answer.

Please note: This is a guest post from Chetna of Style Craze! Enjoy!

The Magic of Being Truly ALIVE

The Magic of Being Truly ALIVEIf the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive.” ~ Eleanora Duse

Life is all about being alive. That’s a no brainer right??

You really don’t need to be out there to ‘find’ happiness. Being alive and aware is enough.

This feeling of being alive can strike anywhere… in the shower, driving in traffic, just about anywhere. You can’t pick a situation and expect happiness to meet you there. It comes when you least expect it. Continue reading

How One Family, One Love, One World IS All Healing

How One Family, One Love, One World IS All Healing“I am part of all that I have met.”Alfred Lord Tennyson

Lately, I have been immersed in family functions, get togethers, exams with study times, hubby time, baby time, mommy time, brother time. The occupational hazard of being a Counselor is that I analyse everything..literally! ….. I kept observing my family and myself, like I probably would not have, if it hadn’t been for being so immersed in my family’s needs these past couple of weeks.

What I noticed was that when it comes to family, we go that extra mile and partake extraordinary measures to make sure they are fine. Whether we feel upto it or not, we try to make sure they are fine in all possible ways. We cant see any members of our family sad, upset, gloomy or disturbed. Least of all hurt physically or emotionally.
But, then this is the family we are related to, by birth or by heritage. Continue reading

My 3 Positive Tips to Being In Constant Serenity

Serenity according to me is when my conscious and subconscious are in sync. When external triggers can not touch my true self and when I can truly feel at peace. Continue reading
