Come pause a minute,

Sit with me awhile,

and share your thoughts...

A reminder...

from Ecclesiastes 3:1–8

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.

Wait on Him - in all things, at all times, and in all situations...

It will happen as He ordains, and not as we want or wish.

He is right.

We, on our part, have to trust...

Have got hooked to...

the idea of leading a life of simplicity and leisure, sometimes just drifting....

This has cleared my mind and answered all those questions that keep popping up about how to lead life after 60....

You actually control...

the environment around you...think about it....when you smile and are happy, you elicit smiles even from strangers and create an aura of well-being around you. Likewise, when you are fearful or angry or upset, the vibes that emanate from you create an atmosphere where those around you say things they did not mean or believe in, get tied up in their thoughts so that the words come out all wrong and there is a general air of discomfort....

Maybe that's why wise men have said that even if you are feeling dreadful, keep a smile on your face....it'll help you and allow others to help you too...

A Public School Boy is very special...

What makes him so?

Spurred by what is happening in Scindia School, I felt I just could not be a silent bystander.

Having been a part of the Public School system for many years, I strongly believe that the Public School system has a lot to offer. Like all systems there is good and bad in it, and wake-up calls happen to look at these systems anew.

The Public School set out to turn boys into strong men (and girls into strong women). In this article, I have only talked about the Public School Boy -- since he is in the news now. The Public School is a way of life, and those who have gone through it—as it was—appreciate and value it. Any wonder, then, that the Old Boy sends his child back to the school that made him what he is?


I would love for you to share my article on this. You will find it here: http://www.ibuzzle.com/articles/the-public-school-boy.html

Something good is always hidden in bad things...

When bad things happen to us - hurtful, heartbreaking things which break our spirit - remember that the wounds, gashes and cracks these leave in us, are actually the paths through which the Light enters our hearts and bodies......and it is this Light that brings true healing and peace....

Likewise, something bad is always inbuilt into good things....

Take the digital devices that are available to all of us. We are never far from our smartphone or tablet or laptop. We are connected to the world 24x7...We are right up there in the knowledge zone, know what is happening in every part of the world, and are super-informed. However, it  has been proved that constant use of these devices causes serious physical, mental and psychological problems. So, be aware of the hidden harm in these wonderful inventions...

The most beautiful people we have known...

are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

From my balcony...

On the edge of a leaf

Balancing precariously

                        a dewdrop.....?

                                a teardrop......?
