Aspire to Inspire

As one deepens the focus in the inward journey of awareness ,greater empathy is felt for the world outside , and when the focus is towards the outer materialistic world the focus turns towards  being more  self centered than self aware .....

Aspire to Inspire

Love Deeply

 Dance Joyfully

Move Gracefully

Behave Gratefully

Pray Earnestly

Express Confidently

Play Fairly

                                                                 Work Commitedly

                                                            Live Consciously

Dance will find you :)

The cultivation of soulful movements, with the amalgamation of the (he)artful and mindful moves is essential to being  human . Sometimes people , move mindlessly  and  go looking for great  dancing movements … without seeing themselves dancing through life … There is dance  around and in the infinite horizon against which is set  every action  ever done .Actually its nothing to fret about … dance will find them!

Born to dance ...

    •  In a study on the infant behavior to music and speech , interesting results were thrown open. Not only were the infants responding to the beats of music  than speech  but the ones with more most synchronized movements in response to music also smiled more often . 

This only reiterates the positive effects of the rhythms in our life whatever the age .. While babies are born to dance and play ... as  children grow many succumb to the fear of expression and also at times  become so as they could have been  over reprimanded for their innate freedom of movement due  to societal norms of certain cultures. Music and dance  has a lot of significance in the growing years of a child ....We  as parents while giving a direction to their dreams should  responsibly couple it , with their need to explore different genres of music and dance,  till  they find that sound and movement ,which resonates to their being . Exploration is part of the creative identity which one seeks to personal fulfillment and should never be side lined by parents in the children's growing years . 
 Often we come across situations where children are classified as a no good-er , average or finicky as they have no one particular interest . They seem to be like drifters just cruising along without any sense of purpose in what they do , this is very prevalent aspect of a creative mind .

 In fact just knowing that these very same minds can become very very focused in approach  once the identification of that with that  which resonates with them begins , should make the parents heart rest easy . Music , dancing and other  art forms should be an integral part of the family atmosphere.  One does not need to be able to sing or dance or even draw, sketch or paint brilliantly to appreciate art. All one needs is an open and receptive mind which evolves to being tolerant , appreciative and accommodating of more and more out of the box thoughts .

As we learn to appreciate what is in and around us ... we grow as human beings and reach out to our next generations in a more positive way .
