​Nothing more nothing less.

Nothing more nothing less.

In  a world of assumptions and perceptions

In a world of make believe and gratifications.

In a world of  false notions and proclamations.

In a world of judgments and contradictions.

 
It helps ever so often

To invest in our precious time.

To center our wavering thoughts

To balance our movements

To still our restless spirit

To calm our frayed nerves

To choose our own words.

If only to realise we are

Nothing more nothing less.

 
As we are truly in it all together.

Connected cells as different entities.

We are all made of the same matter

And all is a matter of  energy.

Nothing more nothing less.

 
In seeing beyond the sheaths of skin.

In peeling of the layers of conditioning.

Moving flowing blending converging.

Sense it if you will, with a subtlety of being.

Nothing more nothing less.

 
What we speak can become our truth.

What we project can be our destiny.

What we assume become our realities.

What we think is perhaps who we are.

Nothing more nothing less.

A heartfelt share!


Celebrating the little things matter so today this 200 posts here on wordpress certainly feels wonderful to know😊

Yes this small but a sure step ahead on wordpress feels encouraging  in my foray into the world of writing….

A heartfelt share of my thoughts at this moment in time…

Well! Looking back…. two hundred posts is a body of work indeed for someone like me who just expressed without any self inflicted pressure of time or gain.Although it is just another number actually, I  guess I must also remember to pat myself on my back for caring to invest my time in writing these posts and enjoying every bit of it. Right from sensing  and cueing in on the invoked  need to write , creating an article, learning to edit in trial and error and ultimately publishing and of course to answering with deep gratitude, all your kind comments and feedbacks that egged me on my journey some more.So much learning in the sharing.

Thank you to all my readers😊

 To someone starting to publish  articles here on WordPress in or any place else ,  besides the technicalities involved  of which I am still a learner,  I would just say follow your heart to express authentically and hit the publish button to share your uniqueness to the world. There is always a reason why we do so… there is always a wealth of learning in the sharing and every blog post will take you through to where you want to go .

 When I started writing my first few posts I had no clue as to what it meant, where I was heading or even the fact that I would be writing these many posts  here at all.  All I knew was that every time I would be inspired by a share or a photograph,an inner message of immense meaning would somehow start inducing me to write as on an outpour . At times I would be surprised afterwards of that depth of conviction that occurred to me at that moment to reflect and write on … So as if to test myself I revisited my own articles and verses and tried to check if they meant something on the same lines once again in time . And not surprisingly … I had not only the same feelings but some new meanings to add on as well . So yes some of my work I enjoyed  updating as well in time. Feel free to try this open ended approach on your own art and creative works and evolve as you go .  There is always more than what meets the eye .

Another passion I always loved to indulge was to draw and paint ….As I tinkered a bit with colours and brushes in real life I also wanted to see if could express my love for colours and movement in symmetry  and that’s how the Circle Art Expressions was born . The more I drew circles the more closer home I felt … It was as if all of what I was feeling could be expressed in those many dimensions and the multitude of colours that my emotions evoked in me.I have felt one with it and positively inspired for days and perhaps more

My love for the art of movement is so much a part of whatever I do and for that  I am deeply grateful to have been able to connect with it and expressing  through words,  art as well as training people through dance education . Every step in these directions feels like homecoming and so very thankful for every opportunity that has come my way .

Yes as I understand all this simply as the start of something new now,  the  journey that began with you  all …and as I hope to continue with it  my heartfelt gratitude goes  to you all my readers, many of whom  have turned into dear friends along the way in the  journey  we have travelled together. I thank each and all of you  for your supportive and enriching insights discussions messages, feedbacks  and  creative collaborations  which have made their mark in time .

To all those who have started writing here like me … trust your spirit and write with all of your soul . Support comes when you least expect and the outpouring encouragements can light up your life’s dull moments. 

 Often felt very  grateful for all the good words love and blessings and inspirations received along the way. My request to you is to remember to share something positive and make the world smile a little more as you & care about life and living a little more .

Circle of Thoughts:11

 

 

A vision a verse by Savvy Raj

http://wp.me/p6a0yZ-1hZ

 

 

 

 

 

Steering of thoughts is a conscious movement

To choose the thoughts we wish to focus

Is discarding a lot of thoughts in deliberation 

And finding the ones to concentrate upon.

Step out of your own way!

Often we question our being 

 Often we wrangle with our past

 Often we wonder about our future 

 It is human nature to think and question why 

 

Thoughts have a way 

At times to get the better of us

To stall the imminent possibilities 

To create unwanted confusion and chaos. 

 

Allow yourself then 

To step out of your own way 

Allow your purpose to unravel 

To unfold its path.


Steer yourself away from doubts and despair.

Arm yourself  with hope in the trusting.

Arm yourself with assurance and appreciation.


Steer yourself away from false notions.

Arm yourself with power of positive actions.

Arm yourself with tools for a new direction.


And only then the purpose of your being 

Will  begin to manifest in your way 

As you learn to continue to…

Step out of your own way!

Savvy Raj 

The title of this post comes from reading  a  contemplative article by my friend Deb Helfrich where she mentions the need to step out of our own way at times to allow and sense the appreciation of what is . So thank you Deb for inspiring me to pen a few verses on a parallel hought.😍

A Celebration of Silence

​Welcome Enchantment

A Celebration of Silence

In the sensing of an ethereal presence.
As it further blends into the dusk of misty blue.
Let go and dare to loose your self in the magnetic  sense enchantment
As the scent of the woody flowers work their magical sense entrapment.
Let the soft bed of flowers and falling leaves lead the way…
And fear not of the unknown at bay.

The vibrant orange hues of the winding path may tease and beguile you…

Step in to explore life’s colors in all shades and hues 
Sense the myriad colors that makes you and me.

Hear the sounds of silence that speaks of eternal time of many a lifeline.

Simply learn from the falling autumn leaves…that drop only to enliven another tree another time.

 

THERE IS ALWAYS THAT MYSTICAL JOURNEY LAID OUT FOR YOU
WHAT YOU FIND AND SEE IS YOURS TO KNOW AND BE….

Wisdom in the Challenges: 6

Life may challenge us all every once in a while, it is good as it leaves some wisdom behind …

War and Peace 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The challenge seeks to resolve for peace.
The wisdom is in the path of peace.


The challenge competes to win the war.
The wisdom collaborates and creates peace.

Razor’s 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 !

Savvy Raj

My above verses are my  humble dedication to all those life’s living and lived in inspiring ways inspite of calamity despair pain and loss. Inspite of unsurrmountable odds stacked against them,  those without hope who project unending verve and ebullience to live life in every moment.


  A heartfelt offering of respect and salute  to  the undying spirits of those who even in the knowing the evening is near still retain and  emanate the light of dawn in their hearts.

The challenge draws a blank line.

The challenge questions the issue at hand.

Art of Creativity: The Journey

The Mystic of this mistress is magnetic

Almost hovering on the hypnotic

And yet…

In the unforgiving toughness

Is the challenge to continue

In her demands to deliver

Is the discipline of approach

In the chiding of the critiques

Is the attempt to evolve

Beyond the punishing schedules.

 

And in that trusting knowing

Actors act, sculptors sculpt

Writers write, painters paint

Singers sing, dancers dance

Finding purpose in the passion

In the artistry of creativity.

And as art empowers in the connectivity

Life carries on…!

Behind the Scenes


Feel like sharing a blast from the past. 

I wrote this as a self reflective piece, on what it is to be a teacher, trainer or educator and its varied perspectives in life and living. 

There is always more than what meets the eye…


# Behind the scenes

 

When I say I am a Ballroom and Latin dance form trainer… there is this natural association with everything glamorous, high heels, fancy bare all clothes, svelte tanned bodies , hairdos and glitter, there is youth, shows and events galore, a fancy personal life filled with parties and a fabulous nightlife life may be .

 Far from it is the truth, actually it’s so much more than just that, it’s about raising your conscious awareness in harmony and balance of the mind and body .

It’s about empowering your mind and heart with care and understanding of the relative nonverbal communication  sensed through the medium of movement as patterns.

It’s about taking time to internalize at times complicated moves yet being able to be at ease with your own self so much that the strain of practice never shows.

 It’s about making friends with your mental physical and spiritual body and creating a dimension of composure and gratitude for another to be inspired enough to want to learn from you.

 

It’s a huge responsibility, to make a connection with a human being and sustain it gratefully whether it is for a class a, a dance or a lifetime. Savvy Raj 


It’s a huge juggling act more so, if you have other interests as well, professionally and even personally, being a mother, a wife, a daughter and most of all a free spirit. Its about understanding the perspective of the space in between all that you are and all that you want to be and managing your creative resources the best you can.

As one fine tunes the self to understand and accept the value of the pauses between our moves we reach to our potential heights gradually and learn to be at peace within and around us.

In the truest realm when we focus on any art form it’s about bringing discipline and dedication in every aspect of one‘s life , learning and growing all the way .In the journey that‘s ever enriching,  with experiences that must be savored along the way.

Life may challenge us all every once in a while, it is good as it leaves some wisdom behind …

 

The challenge pushes forth seeking new horizons 
The wisdom stills itself in the knowing


The challenge searches heaven and earth 
The wisdom delves deep within.

The light of your being

Light within your being

Is often enveloped in darkness

Acknowlege this divine guide within

Recognise its strength of purpose

And allow it to surface in time.

Like night gives into day

Darkness gives way to light

Trust the light of your being

Let it lead your way!

Savvy
Was watching this lamp in my above photograph,  hanging in the room, emitting a gentle glow all around and sensed how similar we are to this lamp…. we often switch off ourselves from sensing our own inner light of being and assume momentary chaos and confusion of darkness to be a permanent situation.  A lit lamp is truly a beautiful reminder to our self to sense the light of our own being.

Combining my other two passions Painting and Poetry.

Savvy

For the love of dancing1

Dance with joy and not with friction

 Dance with awareness not with caution

Dance with grace not with distraction

Dance with gratitude not with a contradiction

Dance to feel your soul move and not just as an action

Dance in response to an action, rather than just as a reaction!

Dance with the heart and mind in rapt attention

Dance with expansiveness accepting correction

Dance often, in prayer and dedication

Dance with a conscious acceptance of  the divine connection

Dance with elegance and the harmony of completion !

Circle of Contentment 

Sense Contentment


A sense of both appreciation and contentment  are deeply inter-related as well as important in our life and living …. Savvy

Appreciation is sensing contentment for the gifts you receive.

Appreciation is sensing gratitude in giving.

And Contentment is sensing gratitude in receiving. 

Be generous in giving appreciation.

And grateful in appreciating  the receiving. 

Sense Contentment in the giving and receiving .

Thoughts may seem powered by their own momentum 

A concentrated effort of combining thoughts

Perhaps connecting these dots

Is not a random exercise after all.

Add belief add faith

add trust, some hope

The power to choose one thought over another

Is the intentional shift called a conscious choice.

Wonder of You!

       Wonder of You! A Visual Verse By Savvy Raj

 

Have you ever wondered about the divinity of the Creator?

In the blade of grass as much as the man.

The atoms arranged to efficiency

With a difference of the sheath but with a life essentially.

Designer Magnifique! Beyond knowledge beyond wisdom.

Source code of life itself … Creator who created you?

Dawn to dusk…Desire to deliverance

Attribution to Retribution

Beyond time… beyond Eternal

Tireless and Relentless,

Of Passion at play!

Simple and Sublime, patience so humbling.

Ultimate Designer and Creator of Souls

Root to Pinnacle

Salutes of Gratitude!

Bows in Reverence,

Of the ubiquitous omnipresence!!!

A Waltz with Nature

Screenshot_2015-08-16-09-55-54-1

Image Courtesy Google Search

An invitation to dance
with nature in all its glory…
Connect to its abundance
And reveal its many a untold story!

Embrace its enchanting greenery
Relate to its healing ways
Regale in the beauty of the scenery
Rejoice in every swing and sway…

In these blissful  interconnects
Realising its infinite wealth
Acknowledging the pure energy that emnates
Through every conscious breath!

Savvy Raj

P.S The above picture speaks to me to treasure and respect  the beauty of nature  in all its glorious hues…

And in the crispness of  morning and the warmth of sun kissed light

In a garden so charming a dancing heart takes flight…’Savvy

Every time I dance 




I glanced at these words in the post I chanced upon this morning. I sensed that peculiar feeling of passion for dancing stirring within me. It has been a while since I conducted my last workshop and a few days since I last danced. Yet…every sentence meant a lot to me and I know if you share a passion or simply love to dance, you would perhaps resonate with these thoughts as well. So here goes…

I don’t just dance…I perform

Witnessing the world as my stage
I dance my part in this game of life…

I breathe 

Witness to the dance of my breath
In every breath inhaled,  a gratitude of the receiving.

In every aware moment of pauses between the inhale and exhale

Invoking the divinity in the connectedness

Between the silence of sounds and soundlessness.

Every gesture a conscious acknowledgement of this dance of the breath.

The gaps in the journey as pauses in the silence know its purpose of being.

Spaced out in rhythm divine all a part to greater awakenings in every moment of time.

I watch the world disappear

To sense the world fleeting by, just care to waltz

To embrace the souls longing to move and flow along in graceful time… just dance…

To sense the subtlety of change in every dance of your breath.

To dance is to witness the ebb and flow of the tides of life and pass it on.

To dance is to feel fulfilment and contentment in nothingness all in one breath.

To dance is to enjoy the being as much as accept its fleeting nature.

I release my feelings

Feelings come and go and change is the only constant.

In the strength of release of feelings exists the freedom to transcend beyond and acknowledge the life in our being.

To release the feelings and not succumb to it is an art of living well.

To unlock the self from the prison of thoughts.

To be not a slave to feelings but learn to master it, to let it flow its course naturally.

I lead with my heart

Dancing from the heart,

Being grateful for the conscious awareness of the divinity of motion.

To move from the heart in all that one endeavours.

Breathing in the intention of the eternal awareness

towards collective consciousness of oneness is what leading and sensing grace is all about.

I tear down my walls …

Dance has taught me to liberate myself from the confines of limited existence.

From learning to move in space through the art of dance

In releasing and revelling, while sensing the freedom of space within and around me.

I stop feeling sad

Yes indeed! Although I personally make it a point to balance my emotions before conducting any workshop or working on dance in any way, be it writing about it or sharing my skills or dancing any form… yet there have been circumstances beyond which have been helped by simply dancing it out.

I lose the pain 

The happy hormones released in the body has a lot to do to manage the release of pain and by changing our body’s perception and response to all kinds of existing pain.

To dance is to acknowledge the letting go…

Of pain and allow joy in great measures. Often a dull headache nagging back pain or  even a tightness in the body improves and disappears after dance class and we are left feeling  refreshed and rejuvenated.

I let go I smile 

I remember instances of students coming into the dance class forgetting a smile and walking out wearing it so beautifully.
Guess to smile from the heart one needs to just dance and let go.😊

I don’t just dance I do so much more …

Indeed!

Whatever I choose to do,  the way of dance is pure bliss of a bless in my path guiding and shining the light for me. 

I hope to always choose to dance with life  with all of me, grateful for its gifted presence in every moment of now.

 Savvy  Raj

Consciousness Connects by Savvy Raj

 

Silence Speaks Heart listens Soul shines Spirit evolves….

Consciousness connects
Mind activates
Thoughts begin
Confusion erupts
Chaos reigns
Noise torments
Disorder disturbs
Movement stills
Sound muffles
Silence speaks
Heart listens
Soul shines
Spirit evolves …

Silence speaks when the heart listens . As awareness builds and spirit regenerates the being moves to another cycle of progression in eternal time.                Savvy Raj

To countless circles of thoughts in the propelling.

The Healing Touch

 hands-578917__340

Have you really touched someone today

Have you been embraced with expansive love

Have you felt like reaching out with all your heart

Have you held another’s hand in your hand…

Great is the healing in a caring touch

One handhold can lift a broken spirit

One hug can heal another soul

One step to reach out can tug another’s heartstrings

One touch of kindness can make all the difference….

Great is the healing in a caring touch                            

Both life and living can at times turn cold

When the children grow and empty their nests

When life becomes too busy to be

When relationships start to lose their meaning

When tired bodies, leaves one forlorn

When thoughts seem to turn anxious

When moments seem to drag

When a sense of utter loneliness prevails

Whenever there are feelings of helplessness…

Remember to reach out and hold a needy hand…

As the power of healing is in a caring touch.

Savvy Raj

Circle of thoughts: 2

Circle of thoughts

 

Every dot is a circle

And think every dot is a thought

And the dots of thoughts form a circle

That flows to connect along

Circle of thoughts. 

 

 

Circle of Thoughts1

A vision & verse

 

 

 

A thought is a full circle 

From synapse to the sensing 

It travels beyond spaces and back 

Symbol of life in the buzzing.

The Journey

1494129143518
In the fragility
Between the dream and reality
Amidst the knowing of an impermanence of being.
In the vulnerability
Of life and living
The dancing souls inhale and exhale.
And the dance of life
Carries on taking a cue
From each moment lived…
Emerging with every now
In the freedom to be
Building the bridge of belief…
In hope and faith
Trusting the journey
To lead the way.
The seeker and the seeking
Merge into dimensions unknown
Only to transform…
With the spaces between the thoughts
Creating moments that matters
In the eternal infinite plan.
Dear reader
Every step of our ‘Journey’ through time in life and living makes way for shifts in our internal compass. This is an intuitive guide on our path to create evolve and inspire the world.
As we learn to honour the steps we take
A better world we can all care to make.

To Dance…

A dance can introduce you to yourself,

as it beckons you to know your limitless potential.

Savvy Raj

Conversations in Oneness 

To dance is to converse with your soul in oneness.

To dance is to acknowledge  the living  you in this moment

To dance is to move with your soul’s longings in this present now.

To dance is to feel the rhythm of your own beating heart.

To dance is dare to reach beyond the spaces visible.

To dance is to sense the magic as you touch the intangible  …

To dance is to sense the preciousness of time.

As it glides  with your movements sublime

In every move, the heart and mind is looped in joyousness

In every flight is the beauty of lightness …

To dance is to be connected  to your  being

In the contentment of life and living!

Savvy

I love to dance

In every moment of my life….I relate to the fluidity of movements we make,  to the rhythm of the words we write, to the harmony in the words we speak, to the synchrony of the  breaths we take,  to the connectedness in the  flow of thoughts we have , to the strength in the similarity of one being to the other,  to the heightened  awareness  of feelings and emotions to the consciousness of every deed and actions, to the mind and body  connection  we touch  upon with a simple dance.

Dancing regularly has the power of release … from inhibitors like fear, seclusion, loneliness depressive states, mood swings,  lack of confidence, social reservations and lack of communication. An hour of dancing regularly can bring a spring in the step and smile on one’s lips.

That said there are some parameters to take note of for enhanced benefits from dancing which need to be mentioned.

The dance and you:

Every individual is unique and it would be good to start learning gradually with an appropriate dance form suited to their innate nature and choice.
For example, there is no reason to push a beginner beyond their boundaries at they are introduced to certain dance movement without consent and choice. As the benefits of dancing can be seen when they love what they learn and dance what they love.

Take it easy and enjoy the journey! 

Dance is not a war with oneself or another it is about being in harmony and at peace with the self so as to enjoy the dance.

The trainer the teacher you learn from always plays a much bigger role in making you love or hate what you learn.It is a huge responsibility as a teacher than to send out positive reflection appreciation and encouraging signals to communicate the power of dance and movement.

Although there are many wonderful teachers out there, try to work with someone chosen according to the goal plans you set for yourself as you begin to learn. That said …dedication discipline, attendance punctuality, appearance personal hygiene and faith and trust in your efforts are going to play a major role in the efforts from both sides.

Today as we celebrate the International Dance Day … I dedicate this post to the celebration of ‘Dance in and around us to the Dance and the Dancer in us all.’

Creative Enrichments!

 

Freedom ....Creative Enrichments!

Creative Enrichments by Savvy Raj

 

To create is to believe in the infinite…
To create is to move with the power to connect the apparent disconnects
To create is dare to reach beyond self-limiting doubts and judgments
To create is to enjoy the process every step of the way…
To create is to be uniquely you!
Savvy 

Most of us have indulged in one dance form or the other, enjoying the creative spurts in the process, but many of us assume that real dancers are those who are what we call the born artists, or the performers, or maybe only those who are trained or innately talented.

Dancing is an art form no doubt, but it is truly not reserved to a select few just because they have the privileges of being blessed with inborn talent .True gift of the power of dancing is equally available to everyone just as much as to the dancing genius! Indulging in any creative movement satisfies an individuals need to source, analyse assimilate, and create, from within. However, the trick is in the integration of such artistic dance pursuits into our everyday lives, as most of us lead such busy lives with little or no time to spare for a little self-enrichment.
Dancing is a creative expression from your soul which has the power to explore the depth of emotions and thoughts and brings in the open what’s hidden and inaccessible and thereby even heal oneself of limiting convictions and beliefs.
The creative surges give rise to the expansion of thoughts and one can feel transformed even in a single dance. We gradually become more balanced, focused and aware of our surroundings. We can simply start by bridging the dull gaps in our journey of life … filling them with beautiful movements that are as fulfilling as much as they are enriching!
So care to dance a little every day, enrich your life & also of those around you!
– Savvy Raj

Empathy: A Way Of Being.

Title  ‘Empathy Matters ‘Artwork by Savvy Raj

Life with all its complexities and contrasts creates a necessity to chalk out ways to make young impressionable minds better equipped to handle its exigencies. Holistic education is so much about grounding in connectedness as much as it is about intuitive understanding that, harmony in the mind-body connection is a way of life and living.

An education in empathic behaviour becomes paramount in a materialistic world.A lot of misconception about empathy needs clarification.

Empathy is seeing with another, listening to another acknowledging them as they are, in a non-judgemental space and being with another sensing the feelings and caring to reach out with  support through words action and deeds …
Empathy can be sensed in a touch a  nod or a smile or in the simplicity of silence too  doing nothing but just being there …
Empathy is a sharing, a  feeling, a bonding, a being, a seeing, a sensing a trusting and  believing in hope, in  faith, in life and grace .

Empathy is about caring , as a way of being.Empathy is not always about bearing the suffering  and sensing another’s pain or being in a state of sorrow or pain  . There can arise great empathy when dancing together or in a classroom  environment where the teacher feels one with the students frame of mind and speaks to address that  … or  hearing or performing a song or play  together with unbridled  sense of bonding  and enthusiasm.  This empathy can be reflected time and time again in striving to consciously stay aware of the  mutually creative fulfilment it brings to our lives . Positive benefits of empathy can become a mirror to  gradually inducing greater empathic behaviour in our lives towards ourselves and others .dance-1057707__180

Our movements have the power to change our moods as much as our thoughts can bring a change in our way of being .It doesn’t matter who believes in your empathic way of life  what matters is you believe in it yourself . And that is the first step in making a positive difference.

When there is an empathy in action it is mirrored in  our own minds to create, generate loving and caring  thoughts as a response to the action .
Every empathic thought finds its way into expression thoughts words or deeds creatively. With increasing empathic thought and action there is unknowingly a connectedness valuing the interdependence in this web of life and living as a way of being.
