When Life Knocks You Down,
All You Can Do is...
Be Equanimous

Equanimity is a big word. At least for me. I am still learning its nuances. 

But one thing I know for sure is that understanding equanimity is the key to experiencing inner-peace.

That's what this website, my articles, my videos and my work is all about - the art of cultivating true happiness and sharing it with the world from within us. I believe that we have all that it takes to live in a state of peace and harmony.

Equanimity in essence means a state of being calm and balanced ... a state of calm and balanced MIND. 

By training our minds to become our true allies, we can navigate the sea of life with grace. Not getting disturbed when the waters are choppy or turbulent. Not getting too immersed in the pleasure of smooth sailing.

Being aware. Being calm. Being equanimous. 

Mastering the art of happiness is then cultivating a strong, balanced and calm mind that is the seat of inner-peace. And when we are at peace then we can contribute to others and serve others in a real, impactful way. Don't we all want that? Don't we all want true meaning and purpose for our lives? I certainly do. What a wonderful way to help oneself find meaning and also serve others - by developing a strong, peaceful mind!

So how do we cultivate equanimity? How do we generate our own happiness? This is what you will discover through (video + articles + online trainings) and all the content I have for you here on this site.

So welcome to Reflection Pond; a place on the web dedicated to bringing you ways of cultivating true happiness in your life!  I am so glad you found us!

Giving Back

We are so blessed for all the generosity and blessings in our lives.

When you purchase a product, a service or a program from Reflection Pond, a portion of all proceeds is dedicated towards helping others.

We believe that one of the most powerful ways to help others is to help people and organizations that are helping many others. This makes the same dollar you give exponentially more powerful.

I absolutely am in love with animals and among the animals that give so much personal joy and happiness to us are dogs and cats. They make our heart happy, help us live longer lives and bring out the best in us. Ceasar, my neighbor's dog, was my guardian when I was just a toddler. Moti was a dog I met on vacation in India. The street dog in Mexico who looked at me sweetly. Sunflower, Orlando, Minou are our family cats who have brought priceless moments of joy. Lilou and her kittens Napoleon, Ginger and Mascarpone; Thunder, Dozer, the other gray tabby, Pierre Cat Stevens, Miami and so many more cats of our friends and family and neighbors have struck a heart-chord. And they are among the animals that inspire us to do something for their cousins in need of our help.

So each year, we give to organizations that are serving animals in need. For 2016, we will be serving organizations that help dogs and cats in our cities and in the countryside to live healthier, happier and make sure they are well-taken care of. We love animal sanctuaries that give a permanent home to dogs and cats who need a home.

Thank you for doing business with us, and for supporting us in supporting these organizations we love.
