“Think Positive healing thoughts. You are what you think you are.” Z~
Life has a way of throwing many curve balls in your path. My life has been no exception to those very unpleasant curve balls. From a broken heart, to a broken soul, to coming down a negative spiral….I’ve been everywhere. In those very very negative times, the few things that helped me heal were my faith in the Divine and my own self talk.
Although spirituality came to me at a very early age, its not until pretty late that I realized it wasn’t anyone or anything that’s hurting me…it was me all along! HOW? My own thinking was eating me alive. When I read and learnt about positive thinking and positive affirmations…I was already too muddled to realize the full benefits of this simple healing magic. It was while IN one of these trying times that I revisited my own thoughts and began putting my knowledge to good practical use. Within no time, I was OUT of my negative patterns and could see clearly. I was feeling alive again. Continue reading
“Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” ~ Veronica Shoffstall
What makes a beautiful soul? Why do we *need* to make efforts to beautify this soul?
As you begin your day whats the first thing you do? I personally get up to brush my pearly whites and make coffee. After which there is a regular routine in place till I get ready for the day.

We use the best cosmetics, we wear the most comfortable clothes, we eat the tastiest food, we stay in cozy homes….the list of our physical wants that beautify our physical lives is endless.

“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
“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.
It is said that “love begins at the beginning and goes beyond the end”. Continue reading
“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.
