Grab and Create Opportunities for Infinite Success

Grab and Create Opportunities for Infinite Success“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.”~Sir Francis Bacon~

A person seldom fails in life because he doesn’t have the ability to succeed. Most often he fails because he uses too little  of the power which lies dormant within him or he does not make use of his powers when the opportunity was ripe. Let us not permit the great sleeping forces within us to remain asleep. It is a catastrophe that the great opportunities of this world are sometimes not embraced by men and women of vision, insight and ambition.

It is also tragic to let talent go undeveloped-to live with unfulfilled ambitions, unrealized dreams, doors of opportunities that remain unopened, so long as the hinges are actually rusted. 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

How to fully grasp Love, Kindness and Happiness“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” ~ Maya Angelou

Love is splendorous. This feeling of a warm and deep attachment leading to enthusiasm, devotion and admiration continues to exist and grow between many varied personal relationships e.g. Man and God, Parents and Children, Brothers and Sisters, Husband and wife, Teachers and Pupils, Friends both men and women and amongst many other bonds that we human beings develop and nurture of our own free will, in our life’s journey from the earlier days of childhood to the later evenings of old age.

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

10 Spiritual Quotes to Awaken Your Soul ~ Heal Your Soul {1}

10 Spiritual Quotes to Awaken Your Soul ~ Heal Your Soul {1}“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

While we go about our days catering to every physical need we have, we tend to forget that we are indeed spiritual beings inhabiting this beautiful Universe. As a result of this we, as a society have become materialistic and selfish. Our physical needs take precedence over our souls needs…thereby paving the way for loneliness, depression, lack of self worth, suicide and I cant even begin to mention the crimes that are committed as a result of it all.

Then why dont we start paying attention to our core, our soul? Its about time we started.

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

How Joy and Sorrow are Inseperable

How Joy and Sorrow are InseperableAs the month of May with its sun and colours is upon us, I can’t help but think of all the opposites our life is full of.

“God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one” ~ Rumi

Light and dark, night and day, happy and sad, negative and positive.

One is incomplete or rather unappreciated without the other. Continue reading
