A poem (of sorts) on marriage

When a man gives a women a diamond ring, he is giving her his heart, in the shape of a diamond, for her safekeeping.

The women accepts the responsibility to reflect his light with the diamond given. She is the guardian of his heart, shining...

A poem on surrendering our ambition to the flow of life. I heard David Whyte's voice while writing this poem, which is why some prose sound similar to how he recites his poetry. 

Your great mistake, your great mistake

Is to assume that sweet grapes will co...

A poem on finding joy and wonder in beginner's mind

Joy illuminates from love

There is no need to search for it

For the undercurrent of love is always present within

Life force fuels my beating heart

Breath rejuvenates my body

Love lives within my soul

Joy is who I am

The dire...

A poem about finding balance in striving

We are constantly seeking peak experiences

One peak to be higher than the next peak

We push to reach our full potential

To be constantly pushing our frontier

We fall sick, sometimes from exhaustion

And wonder how we can pull back

Shoul...

Do you live with a sense of abundance? Or are you more like me - living with fears of not having enough?

Recently, a friend mentioned how she used to keep all her favorite stationary items aside. She treasured them and never got around to using them. I did the same thin...

At the end of this lifetime, my hope is that my tombstone will say, “A good friend to many.” I hope that my actions and spirit live up to this message.

Friendship is important to me and to many people I meet. Cultivating strong friendships and a sense of community are k...

My energy level is low more often than not recently. This is not new as I have been through long periods of fatigue in the past. Fortunately, my past fatigue episodes have given me wisdom around what I can do to help myself.  

I know that:

Do you see yourself having a quarter-life or mid-life crisis? Why is it a crisis?

Many people see mid-life crisis as a challenging time where they feel dissatisfied with their lives and question how they want to live differently. Oftentimes, their friends and family  la...

Do you worry often? Often feel like there is something you should be doing to move ahead? Find it difficult to be present and joyful most days?

For the past three years, I’ve been working tirelessly on understanding how I can be joyful and loving every moment of the day...

How often do you feel grateful? 

I used to feel grateful only when something significant happens. For example, I’ll feel grateful for family, friends, and bountiful foods around Thanksgiving.

Similarly, I feel proud of myself only when I do something significant. For exa...

“I will (or will not) love again”

“He will not love me – I’m not good enough – as I am.”

“He is suffering that’s why he hurts me. I can save him.”

“Something must be wrong with me if I’m still single at this age.”

Our beliefs shape our experience. What are your beliefs abo...

Do you have an addiction to keeping yourself busy? Do you value appointments more than the white empty space on your calendar? How do you feel about waiting – whether you are sitting in traffic or waiting for someone to show up, do you check your phone?

Why is it so har...

Imagine walking into a messy house filled with piles and boxes of junk with sounds of people yelling in the background.

Now imagine walking into a green park with a clear lake on a sunny day with birds chirping.

Which space is more conducive for thinking clearly? Which s...

Honestly, I didn’t learn to love myself until I met a partner who loved me unconditionally. Here is what I’ve learned from him, on how to love myself as much as he loves me.

Give yourself permission to ease up on your “should’s”

In the past, I tell myself I should sleep...
