5 Positive Attributes to Beautify Your Soul (while there is still time!)

5 Positive Attributes to Beautify Your Soul “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, pray, do yoga and make coffee. After which there is a regular routine in place till I get ready for the day. There is so much we all do to beautify our physical selves from the start of our day till our day comes to an end. 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.

Simply Positive Ways to Just DO Good for the Joy of it

Simply Positive Ways to Just DO Good for the Joy of it 2“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 of course….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

Joy and Sorrow are Inseparable

“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

As the month of July ends, I can’t help but think of all the opposites our life is full of. More than half of this year is over and I am in a sort of introspective mood, about how much I have accomplished in the first half of this year. While there are so many goals that I had set for myself for this year, I knew realistically that I would put my full effort to reach them…and not beat myself up about not completing them, if I couldn’t. I’m happy that I am working towards some goals which will materialize at the end of this year..but there are some, I have not even begun. And that is ok too. All in good time.

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

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

The Challenge to Live a Phenomenally Miraculous Life

One of my all time favorite quote by Albert Einstein is, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.” 

At first I thought, wow, pretty black and white, Mr. Einstein… What’s wrong with somewhere in the middle? Certainly everything is not a miracle. But over time as I have continued to ponder over the words of this quote, I have been pleasantly surprised at how miraculous our life really is! I then eventually asked myself, what is a miracle anyway? And what, I wondered, was Albert Einstein’s definition of a miracle? Continue reading
