6 Timeless and Positive Life Lessons from #RUMI

6 Timeless and Positive Life Lessons from #RUMI

My Dad’s Favorite Rumi Quote :)

Rumi’s words, his verses and his poetry has always inspired me. Its moved me at the soul level. Its made me understand so many of life’s truths that sometimes when I sit to soak in his words, I am astounded by what they reveal. You can read the same poetry a hundred times over and each time you will come to understand another layer of the wisdom it offers. Amazing right?!

I was introduced to Rumi by my very brilliant dad. He loved all things poetry and I was always surrounded by books and debates discussing essential life philosophy. I started reading Rumi when I was just 12 years old! While other girls my age read Nancy Drews I was reading Rumi and Gibran…go figure :) I obviously couldn’t process Rumi’s words at the time, but I loved how his words calmed me. Dad would often quote Rumi in his day to day interactions. He would quote him in Urdu, Farsi and English. All these years of being exposed to this Sufi wisdom tends to rub off  :) Continue reading

4 Soul Nurturing ways to being Open to Wisdom Everyday

4 Soul Nurturing ways to being Open to Wisdom Everyday

The world is thinking about making money and here I am thinking about gaining wisdom! I can sometimes laugh at myself and my ways of thinking, but the best part about my openness, aims and strives is that I know they fulfill me, enrich me, satisfy me and most of all make me happy.

Get out of Clue Clue Land and Decide to Be YOU

“It’s choice – not chance – that determines your destiny.”~Jean Nidetch~

I remember when I was about 8 years old and loved playing with my Barbie doll sets, if anyone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said a Barbie doll. And why? Because my Barbie has such beautiful things. Then when I was 12 yrs old, I was crazy about painting and wanted to be a Painter. At 13 it was an astronaut, at 15 it was a teacher, at 16 it was a doctor and at 18 well I just wanted to be left the hell alone!!

The point to all this is, we are constantly asked by everyone around – What do you want to be when you grow up??? Continue reading

On my Birthday, I Choose to Unleash and Embrace my inner child

On my Birthday, I Choose to Unleash and Embrace my inner child“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood” ~ Z

As I enter a new year of my life, I choose to celebrate (Its my Birthday.YAY!).

I choose also to shed the 33 from the 37 and embrace the 4 year old IN me. Yippeee….

You see, very very early on in life I had no choice but to grow up. Literally no choice then. The circumstances needed that from me and I did the best I could being an adult in a child’s body. Hence, my childhood never came. The realization of that lost childhood came very late in my life..but it came.

Today though, I have another choice. I have the choice to embrace my inner child in me and LIVE in Magic. And that is exactly what I have been and will keep doing. My happy choice you see :) Continue reading
