Back Cover

To That... With Love & Reverence is an internal dialogue to the quest of centuries, What is life, Who am I and How to live life. The poems reveal the path to living life with simplicity and choosing every moment to be joyous.

Awareness of our true self is a gift given to all human beings. We all have the power and ability to awaken our inner awareness and live life to the fullest moment to moment. I hope the book inspires people to open their hearts to live in harmony with that universal love, which like the rays of the sun is there for all, selfless and unconditional.

areness of our true self is a gift given to all human beings. Human life is designed to evolve to live in union with That inner love. We can choose to know it willingly or discover it gradually through force of circumstances. Every life is inter-connected to support this unfoldment. It is unknown to us when, how, who and through whom, we will rediscover our inner core. I marvel at the synchronicity of life and have observed people, events, circumstances occur in my life to support my evolution. My heartfelt gratitude to all the people who have touched my life and all the experiences that have helped me travel thus far.

We all have the power and ability to awaken our inner awareness and live life to the fullest moment to moment. I hope that the book inspires people to open their hearts to live in harmony with That Universal love, which like the rays of the sun is there for all, selfless and unconditional.

Sample Chapter

Life goes up
Life goes down
And with every tide
Life moves on

I try to hold onto the sails
Yet I rock before I know it
And then sometimes
I move gracefully along

I know I cannot avoid these tides
And some change the course of life
I can only learn to ride these tides
For they will always be a part of life

Time is the only healer
As I watch the play of life
And get stronger with each tide
And learn the rhythm of the tides

As I befriend the tides
And smile with each sway
Loving the ocean of life
Like a little child out to play

Tides of Time, Ashu Khanna


Ashu as my executive coach has had a profound impact on my Professional & Personal life. Ashu's tools are simple conversations & powerful questioning, which makes you dig deep and reflect about ourselves in the context of the ecosystem we all exist. I have a lot to thank Ashu for helping me in my journey to be a better "me" & look forward to my continued association with her.

...having Ashu as your coach is a God send. Because, Ashu's primary focus is not limited to addressing the immediate areas of concern but to transform you inside out. She helps you (if you let her) discover and reinforce your own core beliefs, values and approaches. Her approach is to focus on you such that you can grow across all dimensions, making you capable of reaching the "here" seamlessly… and empowering you to reach the future "theres" as well!

Ashu has worked as a coach with my team on a few occasions to help improve teamwork and team dynamics. Working with a group of type A investment bankers can be pretty tough. Ashu was able to draw out the team to share their views openly in a constructive manner.

Coaching Promotes Agility

I have always had a perception of being an agile person. Like all, I get stuck but that feeling of being stuck makes me uncomfortable and propels me to look for solutions. This self-created image exerted an expectation and the pressure had driven me to a writers’ block.
