HAPPY HOLI

Inspired by a celebration of peace and love marked across South Asia, Holi is a colourful festival all can enjoy.

The Holi festival of colors is also known as the festival of love.

Holi is an annual Hindu tradition observed predominantly in India, Nepal and south Asia but adopted across the world.

The date varies but is always marked on the full moon, starting with a Holika bonfire with singing and dancing.

The next day, the streets explode with color as people turn out armed with water balloons, water guns and dry colored powder.

The festival marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring by highlighting positives, play, laughter and forgiveness.

Something to think about …. “NUTSMASTE …. I honor you …. because I see myself …. “!!


NutsMaste

~~April 4, 2017~~ 

NUTSMASTE

Namaste, sometimes spoken as Namaskar or Namaskaram, is a respectful form of greeting in Hindu custom.

It is used both for salutation and valediction.

Humor will always carry the day.

This makes me think that the concept can be applied to any situation.

I recognize you and I see myself in you.

That’s the way!

BREATHE AND PUSH

I found this video yesterday.

As it frequently happens, I found it by chance.

Scrolling through Facebook.

It’s a bit long but it’s worth every minute.

It’s a very badly needed message.

This is a video from New Years Eve 2016.

It applies more and more … as these 50+ days of ‘leadership‘ have gone by.

I think it’s a gem!

Always hang on to hope.

~This is the message I have been craving to hear~

My ears ache after listening to line after negative line in the news, reading the political drama on Facebook, and reading my family’s and friends’ opinions.

These words are weighing me down with heavy, uneasy feelings about the future.

We’ve marched, signed petitions, and called our senators, and the news is not changing. People are tired. I am tired. Life doesn’t seem fair.

We need a pep talk – and I’ve found one.

Valerie Kaur‘s powerful and uplifting look at our world today is so refreshing in this chaotic climate.

As an award-winning filmmaker, civil rights lawyer, media commentator, Sikh activist and interfaith leader, Kaur’s work of storytelling inspires social change. This video from New Year’s Eve has the call for 2017. I needed this passionate and beautiful speech. Hers is a realistic voice asking me a valid question:

What if this is our nation’s great transition?

Sikhism is a monotheistic religion, and the basic Sikh belief is represented in the phrase Ik Onkar meaning “One God.”

Sikhism was founded in the Punjab region in India in the 15th century by Guru Nanak Dev. Sikhism broke from Hinduism due, in part, to its rejection of the caste system.

SIKH SYMBOL

It consists of three weapons and a circle: the khanda, two kirpans and the chakkar which is a circle.

It is the military emblem of the Sikhs.

It is also part of the design of the Nishan Sahib. A double edged khanda (sword) is placed at the top of a Nishan Sahib flag as an ornament or finial.

LIVING THE TRUMP WAY

The photo of a Trump Tower billboard above sleeping homeless children is real

Posted by Joe Vesey-Byrne in news

A photograph of the slum children of Mumbai sleeping beneath a billboard for Trump Tower went viral in early December.

Initially denounced as a fake on Reddit and Snopes.com, the photographer Paul Needham has since come forward.

Since Trump’s elevation to the international stage as president-elect, the juxtaposition becomes even more powerful than simply a hotel magnate and people in poverty.

When the image initially went viral, some doubted its veracity.

Needham has since spoken to indy100, and verified the image.

I was in Mumbai to meet a social impact investor. I run a company called Simpa Networks, Simpa Energy here in India. We provide solar energy solutions to farmers and small shops in rural India.

“BAJO LA TORMENTA”

Sergio George came out with the Salsa Giants new song “Bajo la Tormenta” which brings a positive and uplifting message along with very danceable Salsa music.

Super producer Sergio George and his collective of living legends, the Salsa Giants, have just released their new single “Bajo La Tormenta” which features Oscar D’Leon, Tito Nieves, Jose Alberto “El Canario,” India, Ismael Miranda, Andy Montañez, Cheo Feliciano and Willy Chirino.

The main message of the new single “Bajo la Tormenta” is to keep a positive attitude under stormy unfavorable circumstances. I think this is very timely as many Latin American countries like Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and many others are going through some of the hardest economic times of recent memory.

Along with the positive attitude message of the song, Sergio George adds powerful Salsa music that incites to dance with its catchy swing and lyrics. The 8 Salsa Giants singers do the rest with great singing and “soneos” that reflect the happy and positive theme of this Salsa music hit.

As many well know, Puerto Rico is going through rough times economically, politically and socially.

This is a time for great change and change brings questions and doubts about the unknown.

The spirit of the Puerto Rican people is noble, strong, stoic and always present.

It will never be defeated.

~THE VISIT~

Homosexuality has been a taboo subject in India for as long as one can recall. But slowly, that has been changing. Despite the legality of such a sexual orientation, people are feigning no qualms about portraying it in art.

This ad from Anouk Ethnic Apparel’s ‘Bold Is Beautiful‘ campaign shows a lesbian couple getting ready to meet the parents of one of them. It explores the idea of coming out of the closet and the simple emotion that is love.

The first Indian advertisement to feature a lesbian couple has gone viral, the Times of India reports, and its creators hope that it will have a positive influence on the way homosexuality is viewed a socially conservative country where it is still against the law.

The online video shows two women in a live-in relationship flirting and dressing up for the day, chatting about the expectations they face and their love for each other.

TajM

~~January 9, 2014~~ 

INVERTED REFLECTION …. STILL IMPRESSIVE

The Taj Mahal from Persian and Arabic, “crown of palaces”, is a white marble mausoleum located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. It was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal is widely recognized as “the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage”.

Taj Mahal is regarded by many as the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Islamic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish and Indian architectural styles.

In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A dear blogger friend taught me about this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~In her own words~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
