5 Simple Tips to Stay Positive while IN the Eye of the Storm

5 Simple Tips to Stay Positive while IN the Eye of the Storm“Accept periods of suffering with gratitude, knowing that suffering can teach you very important lessons.”- Barbara Ann Kipfer

Recently, I have been counseling and helping so many souls who have been going through a very rough time in their lives. From relationship issues, to health issues, to financial issues…the list is endless. This article is especially dedicated to all those hearts who are going through an especially rough time right now. Read on…

Human beings are sticklers for routine. Whether we accept it or not, we like to know where everything is coming from, what time everything is happening. There is a time for eating, sleeping, schooling, reading….and lately I’ve noticed people even taking out time during the week to ‘just talk’. All in all we love our routine knowing.

But, what happens when you don’t know, when your routines go topsy turvy, when your plans go flying with the wind? Do you curb under the pressure of the unpredictability and uncertainty? Continue reading

BE Yourself ~ Transforming into the REAL ME!

BE Yourself ~ Transforming into the REAL ME!“Do not wish to be any­thing but what you are, and try to be that per­fectly.”~ St. Fran­cis De Sales

Some time back on a trip to my cousin’s place, who I met after many years, we talked and gig­gled like we were kids again. Nei­ther of us felt any older than those days we used to play in the rain and cre­ate havoc dur­ing sum­mer break. All of us lived in different states/countries but would come together to Mumbai, India for the sum­mer. Its still essen­tially the same sit­u­a­tion, except now we have our own lit­tle ones roam­ing the rooms….and now I am settled in Mumbai with my family. Continue reading

What are you going to be remembered for? What is your life’s message?

what is your lifes message“Our own life has to be our message.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Our message is our life.

But what is your message and how does your life compare in contrast? Lets think about this for a bit.

If you think of role models for this particular way of living Gandhi, Mother Teresa …come to mind. They walked their talk. They lived. They taught. They inspired. They brought about revolutions in good conscious living. They LIVED their message of love, peace and compassion. Their life story is still fragrant with their message and will forever be.

Again I ask YOU, What are You Living today? What is your Life’s message? Continue reading

14 ways to Just DO Good for the Joy of it

14 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
