Tuesdays Trickles – My Thinking Corner

Every Tuesday, I share snippets of thoughts that I call ‘My Thinking Corner.’

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple. You can check this link for more details.


♦  When we love and care for others, we give ourselves a priceless makeover from the inner courts of our being to the outer.

♦ It takes far more energy to hate than to show love to someone, so it makes more sense to invest in love only if we are sensible enough to realise this.

Scientifically the feel-good hormones released into our systems makes us happy, elongates our lifespan, reduces stress and so much more, while hate, anger and other negative emotions release Cortisol which does physiological damage to the human body and mind.

Jacqueline writes from her heart on passion, pain, suffering, loss and LIFE. I have been incredibly moved by her poetry and I know I will return to “Out of the Silent Breath” again and again.

These are the words floating through my head of late.

Sometimes our strength flags a bit and we just need to exhale to get back those thoughts properly aligned. We shouldn’t feel guilty for taking the time to unplug; special note to workaholics like me.

Rest and recuperation are all part of being productive and taking care of oneself, though in the highly driven World of today, some of us tend to overreach and treat ourselves unkindly for cutting a slack.

When  you unplug and rewind, you bounce back a whole lot better. When we walk ourselves into a state of guilt for showing ourselves some love, we not only create room for diminished returns but a lot of negative emotions begin to seep in.

Blessed be.

From the very first poem, “Dreams,” this book captivates with passionate and perceptive words. Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha captures a broad expanse of the human experience in this book of richly layered poems.

Midnight Motivations and Musings # 42…


It should go without saying that the voice of the giant in us should be the one that makes the most noise.

Alas, it’s hardly ever so. For the fact that the voice is not often heeded to, it lies dormant in us, while the screeching empty voice of the coward that knows all the negative, pessimistic words takes pride of place.

It does take a whole lot of paradigm shift and practice to drown the voice of ‘I can’t’ and ‘impossible’ to ‘I will and I’m possible.’

It’s equally a very liberating experience when we let go of some of our unfounded inhibitions and just spread our wings.

Even if we do take a splat in the attempt, chances are we must have gained some worthwhile experience.

When we don’t seek or venture, we shall neither find nor gain.

Midnight Motivations And Musings 12….


Have you ever noticed how negative things propagate so fast and how bad news travels like wild fire?

That is equally how bad thoughts try to take root in our minds and multiply like Hairy panic tumbleweed of Australia.

Before you can even grasp what is going on, it’s dug in and developed a tap root that uprooting it becomes a major upheaval.

This is why we must remain consciously vigilant of the thoughts that takes up the space in our minds.

We must consistently nourish our minds carefully as we hopefully nourish our bodies, so, that there is little room for tumbleweeds to proliferate.
