When Looking Inwards Is The Solution


Everyone is feeling cacophony of emotions: fear, uncertainty, anxiety, blame, denial.

Though there is silence in the outside world, the world inside is loud. Is it the calmness of the storm or the calmness before the storm? Every heart and mind is saying something, either silently or loud enough to create mayhem. Safe and Comfort, seem to be alien to all …When people are panicking, impulsive buying is happening, going into self-isolation is becoming depressing, no malls, no theatres, no pubs, and no socializing, I am finding love. That’s the bounty of being positive and content… And I’m not boasting about ‘self-love’ here, it is there and will always be.

Going inward is a process whether being in quarantine or not being in quarantine…


We are creating a model for ourselves. Amidst all the hopeless thoughts there is love, compassion, respect, forgiveness, patience and grace. Unity, generosity. Among the community, these feelings are flourishing in the most inspiring way. I can see and feel love around.  People are taking the pain of calling each other which they generally forget in their so-called ‘busy life’.

Long lost souls are coming together and getting connected emotionally, spiritually.

Free gifting of online services like yoga, meditation; sharing motivational videos; playing silly games online; singing for each other; getting connected over video calls or voice calls with friends, family, colleagues are the things which don’t happen otherwise. It’s a journey from being ‘selfish’ to ‘selfless’.

Board games, Cooking, Dancing, spending time pursuing hobbies, and enjoying that sip of tea watching a beautiful sunset, all these and many more are happening. Where we pray we will defeat this demon soon but at least we are taking a step to conquer the demon inside. We are taking lessons and valuing time, emotions, efforts.

It makes you realize the difference between need and desire.

It makes you value the resource. It makes you survive on basic meals instead of an elaborate meal. It asks you to get in sync with the mother nature. It makes you realize the value of following a routine. It allows you to pay gratitude to people(house help, cook, nanny), nature, resources, food.

Small advice from No One:

Look at the bright side…Come closer to your inner self, listen to your inner voice, embrace the vibes of the universe. It’s the time to fuel the mind, body and spirit. A time to shift from outer to the inner world, from unconscious to conscious.

An opportunity, look at the bright side, utilize it, untangle those knots and express love and happiness…Love everything and everyone around you.

Get in sync with the slow life… Zindagi race nahi, ek khoj hai apne aap ki…

Is it a troubling time? Yeah !!!

Can we overpower it with love, compassion,patience, respect and grace? Certainly…
