The stars above know it all

sag_milkywayI’m little lunatic when it comes to watching stars 🙂 At the moment there are 5/planets aligning across skies and I’m so excited to have a glimpse of it though I’m not able to spot them correctly among hundreds other shining stars but its a fun exercise to do so. I could also see Orion right outside my window after midnight and I hopelessly await them to present their show.

I have always lived in cities; away from country charm and open skies, yet even in a busy street whenever I spot a full moon or a beautiful constellation I stand aside for few moments and enjoy the wonder. 😀 My star fascination goes back to my childhood when as a young girl I loved spending time in my balcony right before dawn. I find it therapeutic. Even today, given a choice I would always pick star gazing over a kooky night out.

I believe the stars above know our entire story. They know who we are and from where we’ve come from and how far we would go. They have existed in this infinite universe since eons and have known our soul in every incarnation. When I look at them in awe, I find them mysterious, all knowing, and something close to my heart. I feel a part of me is out there watching me back from above.

I have learned that there are birth constellation in Vedic literature. Our own can help us decode our spiritual DNA.  The information associated with each of these constellation is astonishing to know how well it can resonate with our individual personalities.  it’s an enormous tool to understand one’s identity, the reasons for actions and the psyche. This universe is a mammoth in its essence.  It speaks for our constitution. The truth is that we have been beautifully designed like those constellations. Our composition is so perplexed and intense and we all are equally struggling to complete the unfinished lessons from our karmic lives. We need to accept this bigger picture to fuel our compassion and kindness toward each other.

I believe that We all are evolving/ transiting between our own spiritual tapestry. And that there is always a room for learning. It is not so easy. It is not what we see. There is “lot” that goes beneath that is beyond our comprehension in one lifetime. I cradle these thoughts along the distance that float between me those stars. You feel protected if you only listen to their whispers in solitude. They have lot to say if only we are ready to sneak out from our busy lives. They too desire to reach out for us the way we want to dive in their absolute infinity. 🙂

My love for roses and why we need them

my love for rosesI do not remember since when I have been drawing affection for lovely roses. I suppose most of us are enchanted by this beautiful flower. It has symbolized the best of emotions since ages. However we cannot ignore its duality of carrying thorns between its sweet fragrance. And this is where my beloved flower amuses me in the moments where no matter how hard it gets in our lives, we first choose to call upon a rose to caress our hearts. 🙂

I believe a rose is a good reminder of our distinct individuality. We all have our weakness and shadows just like those thorns, but if we realise our true selves and aim to reach for the sunshine, we could gain the same magic to blossom into eternal sweetness.
From a rose, we must learn that we need to focus on glorifying our own souls and be humble enough to accept all that pricks our hearts along the journey of life.
Life won’t be easy but let’s make it worthy to live. Wise men have advised us throughout the history that hard times will be a part of our beautiful journey. The obstacles represent those thorns and the love filled moments mirror the essence of roses.
Whenever we are feeling down we could take a look at the duality of a rose. We could remind ourselves of the above. So in spite of our struggles, let us take a moment from our busy lives to smell a rose along way.

I remind myself of this flower’s simplicity every day and share the same here with everybody else. 🙂

Follow your heart – A humble start

We all are born of emotions but most of us fear to reveal our true selves fearing rejection or disapproval. our feelings are the storehouse of our emotions that come from our hearts. If only we fully manifest them, we come with a power to create extensions of our individual impressions.

I never understand why the business world hesitates to involve emotions into their process. During my professional career I’ve rarely encountered executives considering their customer’s or employees emotions while drafting turnaround strategies. My personal belief is that each one of us come with beautiful composition and that the management should now take the responsibility of people’s emotions to encourage creativity and holistic development of the entire business. I encourage understanding each other first for healthy execution of team work and projects. I encourage people to follow their hearts.

As mentioned in my about page, I speak of myself being overly sensitive, and this I’ve discovered it after a journey of uninvited situations. There is a lot that goes inside me and I need a sincere channel to let it out freely. And so I have found this little corner to express myself in complete honesty. This blog will speak the voice of me that sometimes might shy from sharing its opinion otherwise. It will be a tapestry of personal and professional emotions. As time goes by I will come back to these pages to discover myself, when times get tough and I lose myself in the rat race. 🙂
