My Stories
Think positive & reap the benefits We all know the import of a major resource that resides in us all. This world of imaginatively self-propelled thoughts give us our identity and direct us to be what we are or want to be.
Breathe deep and go with the flow Being mindful is a great tool-kit. You not only make up lost time by performing more efficiently, but you will also see problems as they are — not what you have imagined them to be.
Dreams connect us to our creative source All of us describe dreams as amusing, even strange. Most of us dream about an hour each night or, maybe, just over four years in an average life-span. Isn’t this a notable fraction of our lives?
The real truth about happiness Happiness is a monumental question with no easy answers. It is not the same thing as enjoyment, satisfaction, superficial or fleeting pleasure. It is, in its quintessence, deep, fathomless and broad.
Go on, take a dip, it’s cathartic, too Small is beautiful. When your home houses a small, potted plant, at the entrance, it conjures a new feeling of an open-arms abode.

That soulful hub of imagination Our thoughts, as our ancients often emphasised — and as modern science also evidences — influence our physical and emotional health. Not only that. They can determi­ne our future too.
