Are you listening to YOU?

Last week, someone asked my mentor GD: “If there was just one thing you could teach me in this session, what would it be?” “I would connect you to your inner navigation system… your in-built GPS,” GD replied. The person was perplexed: “Does it even exist? “Yes. And once you are connected, you never have […]

A ‘Happy New You’ Letter

Most Dearest Friend, Welcome to 2014. Or as the Mayans called it: “Extra Time” 🙂 We didn’t speak as often in 2013 as we would have liked. When we did, we often danced around what was immediate rather than what was important… and it was fun too! But today, I thought I’d write you a […]

The Many Languages Of Love

Late last night, as little Nirvaan slept in his cot at the foot of our bed, my wife and I held hands and whisper-spoke for more than an hour. At one point, she said, ‘For me, this is love. Spending time alone with you and talking. Love is being able to share myself and know […]

Paralysed by Greatness

At 28, he quit his career as an advertising executive to live with his spiritual teacher. Today, he is a pyschic empath and intuitive healer living in Pune, India, with a happy backyard menagerie […]

When Life Falls Apart

“Those powerful moments of true knowledge that we paper over with daily life… But every so often something shatters like ice and we are in the river of our own existence. We are Aware.” – Louise Erdrich Have you ever had that experience in a movie theatre, when you are watching a good movie – […]

Wanted: A Life Purpose (*conditions apply)

Since I let go of my full-time corporate job, every few months, I used to feel dejected that life/god/existence was not showing me my calling, the grand and glorious purpose in life that I had heard and read so much about. On one such gloomy, rainy day, my mentor GD sat me down and asked […]
