8 Positive Life Lessons from Gandhi ~ A Tribute to His indomitable spirit

“You must be the Change you want to see in the world.” ~ Gandhi

Today marks the 70th Death Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. It’s the day a simple man, with a simple mission passed into the spirit world. His mission was of Non-violence, of peace, of Unity in diversity. His utter simplicity brought about a revolution of magnanimous proportions. A country was freed, people were heard, caste systems were banished and most of all love and peace prevailed. On this day…and everyday, I applaud this mission. I applaud his spirit, his courage, his unwavering and self-less motives.

I believe, rather firmly believe in Non-violence in thoughts and actions. In no circumstance or situation or state is violence physical or mental acceptable. I condemn war and fighting. There is so much of it going on around us already, that we are just adding to the Universe’s Mental Pollution, by thinking violently too. Be it just muttering harsh words under our breath or holding grudges or holding hate in our hearts. We are sending out the wrong energy into this Universe.

So my take, NO RESOLUTIONS, only kinder promises ❤

In this weeks article we will dig deeper into what core positive rules you need to follow consciously in order to make 2018 your happiest and most positive year yet.

One Positive Promise for a Truly LOVING 2018

“Greet everyone you meet with a warm smile. No matter how busy you are, don’t rush encounters with co-workers, family and friends.Speak softly. Listen attentively.Act as if every conversation you have is the most important thing on your mind today.Look your children and your partner in the eyes when they talk to you.Stroke the cat, caress the dog. Lavish love on every living being you meet. See how different you feel at the end of the day.” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach (from ‘Simple Abundance : A Daybook of Comfort and Joy’) ~

We often think that someday we will settle old scores. Someday we will muster the courage to speak to that person. Someday we will go and have a chat with the quite lady at the end of the street. Someday we will ask for that raise we so badly deserve. Some day we will face our fears. Someday……… Continue reading “One Positive Promise for a Truly LOVING 2018”

3 Positive Ways of Calming the Chaos in Your Life“It’s all about finding the calm in the chaos.” ~ Donna Karan

Life is So rich, so stimulating, so amazing! I love how life thrives in me and around me. There are opportunities and activities going on everywhere around me and I feel like a kid at a carnival, wondering which game to play first. Its an amazing feeling to be immersed in the wide tapestry of life and enjoy its colors fully. There is wonder and awe everywhere if we choose to see it that way. But, while life can be full of all things amazing, it can also be full of unmanageable tension when our mind is going so many places at once. That’s inner chaos for you.

Sounds familiar? Continue reading “3 Positive Ways of Calming the Chaos in Your Life”
