Reckon your REFUGE!

= the state of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger, or difficulty.
Refuge is an escape from one thing may be we cannot face to the other thing which may be gives us peace or make us feel safe. Safe is all what we want to feel. Security is what we want. We humans fear too much, hence we have this need to feel safe constantly.
With the series of disappointment , hurt, failure, our source of refuge keeps changing, also may be with age it does too.
All of us seek refuge in something or the other. It may be a person ( friends, spouse, parents, children) ,God, it could be music, art, poetry, travel, books, movies, gyming, gaming, gossiping,slumbering, slogging at work, savings, bank balance, lavish shopping spree, degrees, medals, fame, material gains, addiction, etc,etc. Phew!!! It’s endless number of things.
All these things may give us peace and safety but, it is all temporary (ooi ma!!! Too philosophical? Naaahh!!). All this to me is hiding but not sheltering from danger. We run from one burrow to another all our life. Seeking safety from danger around us. When all the danger is within us.
Dangers like misunderstanding, ignorance, ego, needless hurtful talks and comments, lie, anger, rigidity, pointing fingers, lie, self obsession, false self identity, superiority, animosity. You name it we do it, without a second thought.
Danger is within us, then how can we get peace from an outside source?
The real refuge I say is within us, do away all the dangers within and you are safe everywhere and trust me from evrything ,then- ‘Almighty becomes your compass and your soul your Google map.’

Planet Se Pyar (Love)!

Change! Change!  Change! “ I need a  change ya!” We all crave for a change. Be it from work, chores, routine, same food, monotonous hangouts. Change is always good, it’s refreshing, challenging, breaks the monotony, so much to learn and explore.

But one change which should bother all of us and not a very positive change indeed i.e. ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ my friends.

Climate Change is changing me…

IRRITATED ME ++

SKIN PROBLEMS +++

HAIR ISSUES+

HEALTH PROBLEMS ++++++

It’s getting hot hotter hottest every summer ( it’s not me mahn!!!wink wink, it’s the damn global warming).

We turn a deaf ear to alarming global environmental issues affecting the health of our mother earth. But goes without saying, we do have our personal insurance and health care benefits.

We are emitting harmful wastes which our mother earth cannot digest. She too, is facing many health problems indirectly affecting us in many ways.

So, firstly we must accept that it’s our actions which are responsible for the worsening of climatic conditions.

Secondly, we must treat her like our mother ( why mother  because, she is a selfless giver, even when she is exploited). We should nurture, value,preserve the earth.

Promise to do small acts of kindness at personal level like planting a tree, using eco friendly products,  minimal use of plastic,etc.

“The future depends on what we do in the present” – M.K. Gandhi.

Certainly it does!

With the amount of increasing ignorance, tolerance towards rubbish and irresponsible behaviour,  our future doesn’t seem safe. We are making it worse for the next gen.

With our own actions we are creating Dark,  Dangerous, Disturbing (DDD) weather. We look no less than  selfish, exploitative humans, being immoral towards the selfless nurturer.


Together we are creating threat to our planet in the name of civilisation,  modernisation and Virtual Age leading to ‘ DDD’ Age. The alarming climate change should be a concern for all of us. Alot has been written and said. It’s the time we do. It’s the time we take the charge and prove with our actions..


# Aware ( to learn about the products we use and it’s potential threat to our environment).


#Accept ( eco friendly products and lifestyle).


#Act ( wise,  educate, create positive impact).

Most important

Stop! Stop! Stop! Predicting. Climatic changes, global warming is happening NOW! It’s for REAL, believe it.

We need to change our actions now!

The irony is….

Get warmer  within

Melt people’s heart

Not the glaciers!

Get smarter without

Embrace the nature

Not the  destroyers!

REASON….to RISE and SHINE!

I question alot. I reason alot, to find answers in my conquest to live my life more fully and more meaningfully.Question my intent, reactions,  words, action, inaction, change. Questiong is nothing but reasoning yourself, your thought process,  which in turn becomes your choices.It is INTENTIONAL LIVING,  meaning making choices for your life based on your greatest values,  not on the habits of others. Questioning the choices and choosing with a reason.Which you are solely responsible for.

‘Believe Nothing, No Matter Where You Read It Or Who Has Said It, Not Even If I Said it, Unless It Agrees With Your Own Reason And Your Own Common Sense’ I love this saying by Gautam Buddha. Humble and thought provoking.

                           To live is a beautiful thing in itself.  But as long as we live we must keep learning to live. Learning to grow, to rationalise, to prioritise, to have a perspective, to persist, to be thoughtful, to nurture,to believe,to aim, to rise above, to hold on, to let go, to stand up,  to look beyond. Learning to be a sport, to develop a healthy sense of humour, to be aware, to stay fit,to be balanced, to be polite,to be poised, to be patient, to reflect . Learning to be a more newer and more youer with every new dawn.To live in the best possible version of ourselves. I believe each one of us, are the most beautiful,  unique being created.  We rarely dare to delve within!!!        

                  Dare to be you!! ( upcoming blog).

                  So is living an art? Yes it is, I say. Art is beautiful, thoughtful , boundless, pleasant, hardwork, personification,  thought provoking and the art is artist himself. Your life should be your work of art and no one elses. Doesn’t matter how many flaws it has. The idea is to learn, grow, pick the best, move on to next level.We all are, our own artist in our own unique way painting the picture of our lives. Adding a little more beauty around in our own way. Just make sure the picture you paint is worth every choices you make in life. 

                      Rise and Shine with every better choices, with rational thinking. Own it. Live it. No regrets. More contentment. More happiness. Stay Blessed.Stay Joyful…. mwuahhh😘

(P.S. Reasons don’t really work when its emotions. For me also when its family and friendship .Also dieting doesn’t seem to work, when it’s blogging. I have been hogging mahnnn…for bloggginggg.. So much to thinkkk…even more to eattt.But it’s worth it😊)

…Let’s Get Rolling!!!!

…. thoughts travel far..words are secondary..  words if used correctly can create magic. This journey of words hopefully create some magic somewhere . Not only words and mind, this journey is  about each one of us who believe in themselves,  in posssiblities, who trying to find answers,  simplfying things,  questioning,  reasoning,  achieving,  developing, wishing,  aspiring, inspiring, being a positive change, in having goals,  to add a bit more beauty, quality, bring a difference around. Basically, who are actually living and probably like a wake up call to those who are just surviving.

I am no one to teach nor I am here to preach,  I am here to reach the hearts through the things close to my heart, in the most real,  unadulterated, raw form( no fakeness, no flowery,dreamy language,  just straight forward,  will try to keep it unbias). An endeavour to create a little more thoughtfulness,  mindfulness,  a bit more sensitivity (not forgetting practicality), getting a bit more alive, ” To leave the world in better condition in which you and I found” in words of Mr.Baden Powell.
