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!

This statement is true when it comes to positive thinking.
Being positive is a state of mind. It is the ‘feel good’ factor that we all talk about.

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

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

5 Powerful Words that Will Positively Change Your Life

5 Powerful words to positively change your life“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” ~ Rudyard Kipling

Words can move mountains and bring about a revolution. I believe the most powerful positive weapon we each possess is our words. But just mere words don’t bring about change. Those words have to carry weight, have to mean something and must have a positive energy all their own to bring about positive change.

We each possess the power to plant a seed of love, success, happiness and healing with our words. In the process of using these powerful words, we not only nudge others positively, but reveal a bit of ourselves too. We reveal who we are, what we think and what we believe in.

So what are these positively powerful words that can bring about positive change? They are a combination of just short single words or a phrase….To use these words optimally in your speech and in your interactions creates healing magic on your well being. Here is how….. Continue reading

12 ways to Just DO Good for the Joy of it

12 ways to Just DO Good for the Joy of it“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”― John Wesley

Having traveled extensively to many countries and meeting many many souls, I have noticed one common negative trait in almost 95% of people(for sometime even me!). What is this negative trait?

Here it is: We do good(awesome!), but only because we feel like we are going to get something back in return(not so awesome!). Doing good for personal gain is no good at all.

As an occupational hazard, I tend to analyze everything. So, when someone I know made a huge donation to a charity dear to my heart I was mighty pleased ofcourse….up until this ‘someone’ started talking to press and media about the huge donation they had made. Now I know these people…I know they started out donating money to this charity out of the goodness of their heart. But, almost unconsciously, when that goodness of heart turned into self promotion and self gain is hard to pin point. Continue reading
