Positive Prompt for May: Your Positive Growth Depends on This

“I am still learning.” ~ Michelangelo at age 87

Michelangelo (6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564) was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect, and poet of the High Renaissance who is considered to be the greatest living artist during his lifetime, he has since been described as one of the greatest artists of all time.

And even after being considered the greatest living artist of all time, he still said “I am still learning.” at the age of 87. An age where people usually think they have done it all and need to retire and take it easy. Michelangelo at that age knows that he is still learning….That’s the difference between greatness and mediocrity. That’s the difference between humility and ego.

“We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn.”Peter Drucker

Are you open to learning everyday? Or do you live in the “I know everything” mode? 

Being closed to learning is like being closed to life itself.

Saying “I know everything” is NOT being wise, its being foolish. If you aren’t learning in every given moment of every given day, then its a waste of the grey matter we are all SO blessed with. Continue reading

6 Habits of Highly Positive People

6 Habits of Highly Positive People

Positive anything is better than negative nothing.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

Because I talk and write so much about positive thinking and its importance in our life, I get asked a lot(LOTS!) of questions on the same too. One of the most common questions I get asked is, “How do you stay positive all the time?”

Newsflash! I don’t stay positive all the time……

I have my good days and bad days too. I get hurt at times and I get ecstatic at times too. I ain’t super human just because I am a positive thinker. I’m only human. It will still hurt when I get cut and bleed no matter how positive I may be.

The common misconception we have is that we need to stay positive all the time. No way! Its just unrealistic. Continue reading

The Ripple Healing Power of YOUR Smile :)

The Ripple Healing Power of YOUR Smile :)“DO THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT COME FROM YOUR HEART. When you do, you won’t be dissatisfied, you won’t be envious, you won’t be longing for somebody else’s things. On the contrary, you’ll be overwhelmed with what comes back.”–Morrie Schwarts

We all know that a thing of beauty is a joy forever and that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Isn’t it interesting how the perception of beauty changes from person to person and heart to heart.

Today I will share with you an act of Beauty that also spreads Beauty and healing all around us. I noticed and experimented from my Hearts perspective as to what would spreading beauty really mean and how it feels deep down in my heart. And this is what I came up with: Continue reading

What is the Symphony of Contentment ~ Positive Prompt

What is the Symphony of Contentment“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury;
and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable;
and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds,
to babes and sages, with open heart;
to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely,
await occasion, hurry never; in a word,
to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony.” 

~William Ellery Channing

We each have our ways of living and surviving on this planet. No one comes with a handbook on life and knows exactly how to do things when in a sticky situation. So, we do the best we can. Sometimes we are not happy with the outcome, there in comes discontent and unhappiness. But, there are some core gifts we are each given right from birth which we forget to use on a daily basis.

Lets Help Heal the World-Light the Way with Peace, Love and Prayer

Sometimes all it takes is just one small prayer to change everything Positive Provocations“Sometimes all it takes is just one small prayer to change everything.”

I often very happily admit that nothing phases my inner peace and happiness. But lately, the horrific images in the news and the atrocities on human lives is leaving me in knots. I am constantly living, but those images keep haunting me. Not because I am scared…no, but because I cant wrap my head around WHY this is all happening. Why has this thirst for world domination become so important to so many?

In my study of world religions, NEVER and I mean Never have I come across any law or justification for taking life. All Divinity speaks of peace, love and oneness. ALL! Continue reading
