Reflections in Faith!

Having the faith , keeping the faith …

A matter of tuning in to the Cosmos.

One is imbibed learning handed over to you and the other takes continous practice
One may not practice everything perfectly but it is a valuable effort nevertheless to think in that direction.To know that all is answered, anwerable in the course of time is to trust and rever the intelligence of being, that is also what faith is about !
When you have faith …
You will seek
But in that seeking will be the calmth of knowing all is in providence
You will want
But a want never exceeding what is necessary
You will love
But with a love that bonds but never bounds
You will cry
But a cry of letting out what has served its purpose
You will wish
But wish for one and all beyond yourself
You will bend
But bend to bow like a reed only to rise again
You will flow
But in the learning that you are not in the flow but you are the flow !

In the bending is the mending of your spirit
In the tears are the release of your fears
In the happiness and joy there is the restoring of the being

In living life by, keeping the faith flowing …

Vortex

 

Power of thoughts stirs a creative force

Of patterns formed in the dynamics of fluidity .

As they move towards a vortex in space

Still malleable in their pliability.

Random impression in the expression

until the next emanating thoughts give a shape unto itself .

Suspended in the Vortex in time, in their own circles of conviction.

The vortex is a whirl, never static, an energy unto itself !

In the vortex of life … care to witness the patterns that emanate

from that great artist consummate

Creations so unique … in no cell is design that’s a duplicate

The simplicity of the creative flow that is so hard to emulate….. :))

In Loving Gratitude

Leave a comment

A spread of Cheer!

Today and every day, in just this moment …

Let me start the day by counting my blessings instead of time

Let me remember to send out at least one small gesture of kindness

Let me remember to express my appreciation of someone’s skill

Let me respect the power within to envision a larger good

Let me seek thoughts that bring peace and contentment

Let me love with hope and trust the knowing

Let me give a hand in lifting another up

Let me remember to truly give a listening to an elder in my life

Let me realize the joy of sharing positivity around me with my words

Let me stretch my thoughts to being accepting of another’s vision

Let me sense the beauty of this world I live in and around me

Let me be grateful to the knowledge I have and will receive

Let me acknowledge with humility the supreme that manifests creatively

Let me revel in the wonder of innocence and bow in reverence of divine energy

Let me see the divine in you enough to fathom because You are… I am!

Let me remember to end the day by counting my blessings instead of sheep:)

Mindfulness is about paying attention to the movement at hand without judging it . When we understand that everything in life is constantly changing. this understanding and acceptance is liberating in itself as then we don’t lose energy in stressing ourselves about things which are changing .Thus in the variability aspect of life itself , we learn to nourish our selves with awareness of the moment .

The concept of aligning ourselves in mind , body and spirit may seem theoretically simple but is practically difficult and needs dedicated practice.But a simple effort of coordination of our breath and some gentle easy to do movements could be a start towards an integration of our mind body connect .

Extensive research studies in the west have only reiterated what was practiced and known in the eastern philosophies that mindful awareness develops our mental faculties with higher concentration abilities, improves coordination skills and brings clarity in our movements in our lives ..

Mindfulness helps us to spot out our unhelpful thought patterns and is able to make us break free from destructive and defeatist attitude and behavior thus developing us for the better and healthier us .

Mindfulness sessions makes one calm, relaxed while improving our blood circulation and energy in the body We realize then, that wellness quotient need not be about spending time slogging through tiresome gym workouts ,or even about extreme starvation diets but it could simply be about using our mind to optimize our health with gentle moves for body mind integration, thus adopting subtle shifts of movements for the better .

As we build on these small steps we pave the way for an attitudinal shift towards good health and optimism. … Simple positive changes to our thoughts thus can change our lives !

Points to ponder…Where attention is …. energy is .
Our life’s memorable experiences are based on that which we have payed attention to.
We can shift attention by leading from the movement and thereby changing the thoughts ….
By simply caring to observe that which we may have gone unnoticed, we can learn to look at Life itself as a Gift
Care to connect with your breath and infuse positivism and exhale the unnecessary.
As we connect with others around us in a positive way we build empathetic awareness in ourselves and our surroundings.

No one is too small to make a difference …..

AS WE CULTIVATE GRATITUDE…WE LEARN THE ART OF LIVING A POSITIVE LIFE!

If You Want Change…Change Yourself!Take A Step!

0b0ed75 Change is inevitable … matter changes as it is the very nature of matter to change …but channelizing the change into manifesting creatively is a result of the positive intention of the in tender ! For example, we all grow and are growing this very minute.Older, wiser , but how we grow and how we use this moment to grow and change, is in our hands ! Whether we choose a life of mediocrity or creativity depends on us and our intentions and actions . Every moment that we value and appreciate ,life can be creative and enriching an experience as we gradually evolve to understand to enjoy both the stillness and the movement in the moment… Like the Upanishads states … ‘You are what your deepest desires are , as is your desire so is your intention . as is your intention so is your will , as is your will so is your deed ,as is your deed so is your destiny …. What at times may take years or a lifetime to accomplish, may take is just a single step or expression to bring it on ! But remember there are always those subtle signs that guide us towards whatever we wish for .

To intend to change for the better is the first step then to fulfill our deepest aspirations. A focused approach of where to go and what to accomplish , and persevering with a determined effort at it, is reason enough to make life respond rapidly almost as if there is an invisible ray of power in and around us to make it happen. Simply put , whenever there is a deep aspiration to make a difference , to change something , there always is a corresponding response accordingly !

So it Is important to make a move even if you are a nervous and afraid, eventually you gain enough confidence to make bigger, bolder moves and that is truly liberating, as it is full of true confidence in acknowledging what all you are truly capable of. Bring out the success that you ACTUALLY are !!!

Seeing beyond looking!

Seeing something involves all of you and looking is just through your eyes . Expanding the sense of sight and endeavoring to see beyond the obvious entails ones whole being …whenever we look at the mirror, it is possible that we may assess ourselves as per our individual judgments, however it seems,rooted in our materialistic attachments. When we actually begin to see … we realize the great depth and dimensions and it’s only possible with awareness of detachment.The difference between looking and seeing is thus an expansive movement , and they could reflect the development of empathetic consciousness in a person, and virtues of patience .
Creative Movement Arts such as Dancing are wonderful ways of developing and imbibing these positive qualities. It is fascinating what our body can reveal in a dance.What is endearing and enticing and exhilarating about dancing … is that the body never lies. In its stillness or in its movements … And there is great healing, in the movements.
Inertia can lead to disease. Simply bringing the body into movement heals, empowers and brings positive changes in the body in time gradually … but most of all it brings on empathy and a divine connection to the living you and that’s the alluring magnetic charm of a body in blissful motion …

As one is able to see soul beyond the movements it becomes a metaphor of change , tears turn to smiles and one becomes an expanding circle of positive energy powered from within …The spirit of the movement brings about the necessary change as you learn to express your own sense of creativity … create with your own sense of expression, and you evolve to understand and revel and gradually merge with that which is unique in you and others & flow with it harmoniously …

The path need not be the same for everyone and as you continue with the depth of vision you see the dimensions yet in the making …. in the stillness of solitude you might experience company even in the quietude , in the chaos of confusion , there will arise clarity in the conforming ,in the fluidity of the flow there could be a discipline of pattern , in the beat of heart will be heard the lyrical vibration of the being …In the seeming rigorous rigidity of the repetition could arise the strength of silent simplicity …. And that is the seeing moment when movement becomes a dance.! A dance of a joyful grateful being celebrating in gratitude of life itself …….

The Space between the Steps

Leave a comment

Just like the sounds of music in the spaces between the notes, there is dancing in the spaces between the steps ….. It is only when we become aware of the value of the spaces between the thoughts that we can truly reflect , revel and dance with ease through our lives.
 The pinnacle of access to our realization of the creative entities at work would actually be in the silence , in the intentions, in an emotional journey of profound fulfillment.
The trick is to find that point of immense creative surge and be able to nurture it .

Rest and activity go together just as much as night and day… And like the yin and the yang , there must be pauses in between the breathes , an inaction in between the action , which will heighten the clarity, purity, and the intensity of that which is evolving.

Its disheartening that our world has become so hyperactive . Multitasking has become the order of the day, people spend time having dinner in front of televisions , reading is done with music, and very often we have the mobile phone calls that cuts through a real conversation. So much has there been an abuse of our bodies and mind that we truly have forgotten the importance of non activity and quietude. The silence between your actions or movements are the bridges to our conscious experiences and the greater your awareness the greater the creative potency of the action itself .

Dancing socially de stresses the body mind and spirit holistically . Taking a moment
to value the steps you dance together , valuing the music you are dancing to, appreciating this moment & appreciating the partner you have in this moment will only cultivate the value for oneself and will help in centering oneself deeper in the action with a joyful heart and soul.
When you Dance if you still your thoughts to simply learn to flow with the partner , the atmosphere ,the music you will undoubtedly enliven yourself in the process and what you have is a beautiful dance of togetherness bridging the spaces between the steps with a conscious awareness …… And that is when dancing feels like a miracle that’s happening!
Few more thoughts in the flow….
Start the day with a few minutes of silence and observing the breath
Take time to pause and watch nature and try to be one with it . .. May be a sunrise , a sunset, a beach view watching the waves , the stars in the sky , the moon , the sky , or a rose or any flower or potted plant , or may be a tree in your garden .
Make sure to have moments where you are free of your cellphone , tv , computer, or
any electronic appliance.
Make a point of actually listening and understanding as others speak and allow the other to speak as much as yourself .Accept every moment in the life you have now and cherish it for what it is…. Cultivating an attitude of gratitude 🙂
