There is a pool

I received this beautiful forward years ago that I cherish. And I so enjoy seeing it every once in a while.

A few musings…

There is a pool
I often sit by
with my thoughts
In fact all of me.

Its a pool that inspires
Creativity in collaboration
Its a pool that invites
Connections in association.

A pool of collectives
That move me beyond
The rut of mediocrity
To an all expansive space.

A pool of equanimity
That keeps me balanced
A pool centered inside
That aligns it all to the core.

A pool is an interesting place, as it is allowing yet contained.The circle of thoughts, in a pool allow space of contemplation.

Without the hurry and haste, to sense the moment as it is.

Every now and then choose to sit with/by your own pool of peace sensing the peace you already have.

Reality Bites

Acknowledgement is a step towards improvement.

Realizing the effects and the cause is relevant to change.

Our world is a gift we have in life

We are interweaved in this tapestry of life and living.

And we are strengthened in the interconnects in between.

Yet we have distanced ourselves

The advancements create gadgets of convenience

But humane care and connection is distanced

We behave as if we are entities self centric without consideration

Humanity in humans is deeply affected

But we are yet to understand

The consequences our actions

Truth is reality bites.

Yet hope is here to stay.

A scale of truth

Thought provoking

In a matter of scale

We are destroying nature

Than developing with nurture.

Global warming, melting ice

Depleting forest cover

Flood & earthquakes

All a sign of stark changes…

Yes our world is evolving

We are innovating, exploring

New frontiers in space

But how far have we really arrived?

To all the dancers

To all the dancers and those who choose to waltz with life….

As dancers we are a lucky lot!
We are totally able to dance with time…
Move with it on time,
Or take the offbeat road to reverse and revel the joy of reflections in the rivers of time.

A dash of chaos!

Creativity flourishes in chaos
Even more than structure and order
For complacency will not set in
When disruptions make you resist…

You start to think outside the box
As the box when open is full of possibilities in the disruption.
So add a bit of randomness
Incorporate changes and unpredictability…

In the chaos of it all
There would be trial & error
New ways appear out of nowhere.
As creativity flourishes in disruptivity.

On Acceptance

The Road to Acceptance has many challenges in the learnings… not often easy, but certainly transforming in one way or the other.

Like there are many aspects to understanding
In acceptance there are many perspectives
Acceptance is not giving up or being in the same place.
To me a practice of acceptance is an ability to respect the now and in turn acknowledge the transient nature of everything.
To accept then is to be able to have a feel or a vision of the situation as it is experienced in the now.

The Paradox of acceptance is being defenseless to yin and yangs of life and living. Yet to envision that acceptance comes from a place of strength, is to be able to understand that we are not one entity but made of many parts that matter to the whole.
So the stance of acceptance is about flow & movements in the stillness , in hope to evolve in time along with the changes.

Revolve & evolve

The world may seem to revolve around you
But you revolve along with the world.
So to be in balance is to take a hold
Of the space you are in
To find your bearing, before you react.
To optimize your response
Begin to understand and discern
Where another is in space, in thoughts
In actions and deeds.

To listen actively
To empathize with their needs and wants…
To be able to see the ‘Us beyond the I’
To shift the ‘Me to the We’

This is what will truly help
Us to understand where we are.
Life is like that,
Its meant to evolve and grow
Along in the flow!

Making peace with the now

On letting go ….

Making peace with the now
Very easy they say
Follow the breath
And peace flows
Yet…
We all know
That it is quite a task
To be consistent
That’s how life is!

Such is truth in itself
In this now
As every moment
Gives in to the new
We are meant to be
To learn and unlearn

Our senses
Our emotions
Challenge us in the changes
Our system takes a toll
Our beliefs turn around
In soul searching ways…

And then we learn to see
The moment as it presents itself
All judgements & assumptions
All prejudices & preconceived notions
All fade away into the oblivion

We live in this moment
In engagement again
But with this now
Without forgetting what’s gone
But forgiving times by gone
For only then we make space
For peace to flow in…

Dancing Lights!

I was a little kid when I first came across this beautiful word Aurora …and then I read about the Polar Lights and was truly fascinated.
Back then I read as much as I could find in books before the age of the internet.

For many of us so far away from the poles this is often impossible to imagine beyond a blue sky… let alone the dancing lights.

Resharing this poem which is a dedication to Nature’s dance in the sky… all in the depth of my awe & fascination.

Spectre of brilliance
An opera in the sky
A dance of dazzling lights
Of colours flashing through.

Luminescent beyond compare
Magical spectacle of brilliance in the flow
An undulating waltz in the yonder
An unveiling of earth’s myriad wonders.

Such an ethereal vision
Mystical northern lights
Unbelievable, unforgettable
Awesomeness beyond mere words.

Razors Edge

On the razors edge, there is poignant elegance

Beautiful poise, precariously in balance

Amidst the fury of the fire raging beneath

She stand resolute in her calmth

Not helpless but in knowing nature’s ways

That in time, all is well back to base.

Beauty on the outside burns off into the ember

Leaving an ashen pile of dust to remember.

Yet deluding the fury in being uprooted

In the strength of the grounding firmly rooted

Leaving an evergreen picture of poise

She has that stoic stance of grace.

A pose of composure on destiny’s face

In spite of a life abruptly denied

She is the beauty of grace personified!

Breathe in Peace

Own your breath

Inhale the good

Let go the spurious

Anything that never matters

Is bound to bounce off.

What is necessary receive

With atmost regard.

Your breathe holds the key

Unlock the healing potential

As you breathe deeper

With all of your awareness

In every inhale and exhale.

Breathe in peace.

Waltz of the lights

Waltz of lights on the water….

Down the memory lane

A boat, a river, and I.

A canal trip on the River Reie

Beautiful Bruges at night

Shimmering lights

Dancing on water

Ever so gently

Creating a moment

Worth a capture!

A place called Hope

There is a place

That fills you with positivity

Enriches you with expansiveness

Embodies inclusiveness.

Enough to keep your faith going.

Endowed with trustfulness

Believe in possibilities.

A place of potential value

Thats nurturing in itself.

That lights the way forward.

A place that speaks to all of you!

A beautiful place called hope!
