The Love Paradox

January 7, 2015 at 5:24 pm

“What is love?” is one of the most commonly searched phrases on Google. Our obsession with love is unending. It is the emotion that drives most of our stories, movies and songs. We look for it and try to find it in almost every small thing in our lives. From gadgets to food,  from people to organizations, Love is everywhere and yet love is the one thing we are looking for the most.

The ‘You’ in Thank you

December 28, 2014 at 1:03 pm

Of all the spiritual practices in life, the one that I am always drawn towards and am the most weak at is the practice of gratitude. It was one of those practices that logically made sense but never went beyond my mind and entered the realm of practice. This post took the longest to write, as I needed to stop and put the habit into practice before the words would come out.

Success, Failure and their many cousins

December 6, 2014 at 11:22 am

What does Success mean to us? Is failure just the absence of success? What would success feel like if it weren’t quantified? Our relationship with success and failure is a very personal one. If we don’t define what they mean to us, others will.

The Phantom Witness

November 30, 2014 at 12:00 am

Our need to be seen is forever matched and frequently overwhelmed by our desire to be watched. While one is an intimate connection between two people, the other is a busy one-way street during rush hour. Being watched is a passive and disconnected experience. One that doesn’t demand our involvement. Yet most of us have fantasies of being rock stars and celebrities. We want to be watched, not seen. Knowing the distinction between the two was a life altering experience for me.

The “Misguided God”

November 22, 2014 at 12:11 pm

We often say we live on Planet Earth. We don’t say we are Planet Earth. The natural world is something out there that we inhabit. There is an imaginary boundary that separates us from the plants, trees, animals, insects, rivers and mountains, which constitute the natural world. When did we start separating ourselves from the rest of the planet and how is this separation affecting us?
