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

Be a Positive Courageous Doer!

Be a Positive Courageous Doer!“Do more than belong:participate.
Do more than care:help.
Do more than believe:practice.
Do more than be fair:be  kind.
Do more than forgive:forget.
Do more than dream:work”.
~William Arthur Ward~

Life presents many many opportunities for us to DO. Do more than we ever thought we were capable of. Most of the time these opportunities pass us by cause we were too preoccupied with trivial things.

Be aware of these opportunities. You cant be aware unless you are fully present in every moment. Continue reading

Intellect without Emotion is Direction-less!

Emotions form pure, profound bonds
Emotions may blind us but they bind us.

Editors Note: This is an insightful guest post by the lovely author Balroop Singh! Enjoy!

Emotions form an intrinsic part of our personality. Emotionally impaired individuals fail to express what lies in their heart and their relationships lack affection and warmth. Emotionally starved children become insensitive to love, respect and care.

“All learning has an emotional base.” ~ Plato

If we don’t have any emotions…what would we apply our intellect to? Emotions nurture our intellect, give a boost to our dreams and define our goals. Intellect is just used to figure out the means to the goals. Continue reading

The One and Only Sure Way Towards Self Improvement

The One and Only Sure Way Towards Self Improvement“Do not consider any vice trivial, and so practice it; do not consider any virtue trivial and so neglect it.”- Chinese Proverb-

Shortly before George Bernard Shaw died, someone approached and asked, “You have known all the great men of your time, who have shaped the destiny of the world. Now, if you could be born again and re-live your life, as any one of your choice, who would it be?” Without a moments hesitation he said “If I could re-live my life in the role of any person I desired, I would want to be the man George Bernard Shaw could have been, but wasn’t”.

It is only when we can look back and think, that we become aware, how much we have missed over the years, by not waking up to realize our own full potential and for not changing ourselves, while we could,  to the highest level of our capabilities.

One Positive Resolution for a truly Loving New Year

One Positive Resolution for a truly Loving New Year“Greet everyone you meet with a warm smile. No matter how busy you are, don’t rush encounters with co-workers, family and friends.Speak softly. Listen attentively.Act as if every conversation you have is the most important thing on your mind today.Look your children and your partner in the eyes when they talk to you.Stroke the cat, caress the dog.Lavish love on every living being you meet.See how different you feel at the end of the day.” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach (from ‘Simple Abundance : A Daybook of Comfort and Joy’) ~

We often think that someday we will settle old scores. Someday we will muster the courage to speak to that person. Someday we will go and have a chat with the quite lady at the end of the street. Someday we will ask for that raise we so badly deserve. Some day we will face our fears. Someday……… Continue reading
