Not Dates Or Deadlines: Here Is How I Want My 2018 To Be

I have never been a ‘goals’ person. Yes, I have my set of visions about the kind of life I want to build for myself. But I have never been someone who has to ‘do’ something to be happy. Towards the end of each year, there is a slow yet steadily-growing buzz about the upcoming New Year Resolutions. The very word (resolutions) sucks the joy out of me. Why should things that you so fondly daydream of become the very things that bring in stress and anxiety? I love the idea of working for what you want, but I do…Continue Reading

Hello heart, It’s been a while since we last spoke, and during all of this time, I’ve noticed how hard you’ve been trying to keep it together.

You do it beautifully. And amidst all of the chaos you handle with all your might, I have observed the way I speak to you. Most of my talks are about you not doing…Continue Reading

If The Concept Of Peace Is So Simple, Why Does It Feel Like The Hardest Thing To Find?

It’s been some time now that I’ve been struggling with the idea of peace and how we should be peaceful. Through the years we’ve seen it on TV, read it in books, and spoken to people who’ve given us different ideas of peace and how to find it. Some say that being kind, compassionate and generous towards others around us will help keep us peaceful, while some also say that being self-motivated and doing what we’re passionate about in life helps keep our mind and heart at peace. I wonder if it’s that simple though. Because so far through what…Continue Reading

You Are The Creator Of Your Life, It’s Time To Own Up.

Intuitionnounthe ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning. The point of social conditioning is to take us away from what we call our “inner voice”. The voice that begets zero reason. The voice that does away with the need to question, prod and doubt every single thing that is not dripping in logic. We’ve been taught to look down upon the language of feelings even when our very body is fine tuned to our emotions. Through the years, we’ve adopted the art…Continue Reading

17 Poems That Are Perfect Reminders Of The Powerful Warrior You Are

Instagram is filled with poets that write about anything and everything under the sky (a whole bunch of them mostly write about pain, heartbreak and desired love).

25 Beautiful Instrumental Tracks To Soothe Your Soul After A Rough Day

Most of us (again, withstanding assumption), are either exhausted or bored to the point of biting our nails come early evening. Most of us (and here I proudly say so), need a playlist of tracks that can bust some of that cheeky stress and get us back into our zen mode.

20 Epic Things The Kung Fu Panda Movies Taught Me (Including Dumplings)

These movies are my Bible. While people look up to Jesus, Allah and Mahavir for inspiration, I look up to Po, Shifu, Oogway and the Five. There is just something so inherently wise in watching a panda kick some kung fu butt that I don’t need the Gods, to be honest. While some may consider this trilogy of films as purely cute fluff that you “aww!” at, I find so many layers of hidden spiritual gems that I could rattle out solutions to any of your life’s problems, in the blink of an eye. And here are 20 of my…Continue Reading
