2 Simple Steps to Open Your Heart to Warmth

2 Simple Steps to Open Your Heart to Warmth“May you have warmth in your igloo, oil in your lamp, and peace in your heart” ~ Eskimo Proverb

Having grown up in a desert (muscat) all my life, I was never a fan of the warm temperatures there, that could literally burn your skin and make you dehydrated in a matter of seconds. Sun block and Sun glasses weren’t optional there, they were a necessity. But now, after some traveling and being around the cold wintry places of the world, I kind of have come to appreciate the warm temperatures and the sun and all the good energy it brings with it.

As the sun took its rightful place of spreading its warmth all over the world, so did I shed my icy cold feelings this past year. Continue reading


Listening is loving

In the movie, Hector and the Search for Happiness, Hector – a bored London psychiatrist – travels the world looking for the meaning of happiness.  Along the way, he scribbles and sketches the key points he discovers in his nifty travel diary.

While flying to Africa, he lovingly assists a fellow passenger whose brain is about to explode due to the impact of the high altitude pressure on her medical condition.  Hector directs the pilot to fly at a lower elevation, relieves her pain by applying a cold compress to her head, and listens to her story.

When Hector questions the effectiveness of his help, she says, “Listening is loving.” Continue reading

3 Simple Steps to Overcoming Your Unnecessary Wants

“Stop chasing what your mind wants and you’ll get what your soul needs.”

Just Last Night, my little daughter kept pulling me to the fridge to ask me for Ice cream. Now there is nothing wrong with ice cream is there??But at 11p.m. (well past bedtime) on a heavily rainy and cold day it’s potentially disastrous. Now we grown ups know that don’t we? But for a child its still the best thing in the world and not getting what she wanted makes her cranky and irritable. I try hard to distract her attention from it but all in vain. I actually had to drag her to bed…and even then she kept at it…she couldn’t stop crying and saying ice cream ice-cream…finally after much ado she did fall asleep. What she needed was to go to sleep, but what she wanted was ice cream! Continue reading

4 Positive Ways to Be Kinder and more Compassionate“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” ~ Dalai Lama

We are all striving to live in a happy world and to be happy our-self too. While we all want this level of happiness, are we able to garner it for us everyday? We try. Come on, we try to remain happy and calm, but the mean people(for reasons all their own) of the world come on over into this happy bubble and spoil it all up. So, we are not happy because of the mean people in the world?! Really!?

Nah, we are not happy because we have not become kinder and more compassionate to ourselves and to all those around us. Why blame the mean people, they are probably fighting their own battles on the inside. Continue reading
