Life is born
In hope of dawn.
Yet night falls
Beween the dawns
Some dreams shatter
In the darkness unknown
While some see
The light of day!
And Life is bettered
Such is the circle of life
Flowing in a rhythm
Of its own making!
Every Life chalks it’s path in time
Arrives its meaning for itself
The journey is unparalleled
And uniquely carved.
Such is the very nature of life
And at every moment
One can’t help
Such is the wonder of life!
I have started an experimental journey and would like to invite you to be a part of it. Everyday through this week I will be writing and sharing a few verses in flow that you can choose to continue as well. Would love to explore the connection in what evolves through the week and see the interweaves in the interconnects. Verses in Flow
DAY 1 Truth
DAY 2 : Roots Day3 Reason
Day 4 Live
You may want to paint your life
Till the last detail
Choose to use all the colors in your box.
Paint your vividity.
Fear not, dare to live in authenticity.
Count your blessings
You have one life,
Choose to live vibrantly.
Same piece of sky
That we see everyday
Makes us gasp in delight
Every other day
Showing a new side
Painting the canvas
With vivid color and hues
Patterning itself in a dance
What ever the sky shows
We believe its the truth
Perhaps there is much more
In all its alluring textures…
A piece of sky
Makes you assume
The time of the day
But the perspective shifts,
When you create a barrier in-between
That divides the sky
Into distinctive diverse parts.
We begin to see the differences
We begin to pick our favorites
Colours tones,hues and tints
Associating with the shapes in the sky
Deducing patterns and patches
Divided in our choices.
How illusory can it get?
From one end to another
All is part of the same sky!
What we see, is not all
What is all, is not seen!
Power of Silence
Emanates in stillness
Between rest and movement
Between words and deeds
Between two spaces…
In the betwixt and between
Is the potency of potential
To emerge in creativity
Silence is full of movement…
There is movement
In the stillness
In the movement.
Whenever we get too drawn into the vortex of living life and whenever it starts to feel like a burden and like there is no lightness in the moments it is perhaps time to take a check on our own way of being. So today I am heart fully sharing my dear mother’s two bits on the way of peaceful life and living… I have re read it earlier for to balance my own thoughts as well.:))
Already a lot has been said and written about this. So many experts in different fields have shown so many ways to attain peace.
Peace- the ultimate human need even after reaching peaks of success in their fields. It eludes even the so called achieved souls.
Humans have various desires and find various ways to fulfill them.
Need for wealth, health, love, knowledge, family , status, fame, power, comforts… . the list goes on. To achieve them they go through various states of hardships n emotional turbulence . Perseverance, hard work, focus and luck help them to achieve their goals. But after attaining all these is one peaceful?
Unfortunately the more one gains, the greater is the loss of inner peace. Loads of pressure weighs down them.
The need for more never get satiated. Contentment is always on the other side of the river.Because our expectation keeps on increasing .
From childhood one has to live to the expectations of people surrounding them and in the process then they grow up, they start expecting the same from all around them .
Whichever field or whatever state they are, there is always expectations. Family , friend, society, teachers, work place, children, lifestyle, appearance, behavior befitting their age n status…expectations everywhere.; either by us or from us at all stages of our life. Again it is endless. Peace still eludes .
Like the most difficult puzzles have very simple solutions , life problems also can be simplified.
Simply working towards reducing and gradually ceasing the expecting from others or living to other’s expectations.
Be yourself , let others be themselves.
Never shy away from our duty or ignore social responsibilities or inner values. Doing without expectations. But it is not easy to transcend basic human nature. More than desires, our expectations not happening cause us more sorrow. All are not yogis or saints. But peace is ultimately desired by all. If every one adheres to practice non expectation, peace will befriend the surrounding .
Do your duty, Be dedicated, Be grateful , Be understanding ,Be helpful, Be kind and compassionate,
Be selfless , all without expectations.
Your due will come to you in its own time in its own way.
Such is Cosmic law.
No expectation –
No disappointment –
No arguments –
No disharmony –
With whomever or wherever one be, adopt, adjust & accept. Happiness & peace will follow.
When acceptance becomes our nature the rest become easier.
One word mantra to peace
Live, let live.
These words of Rumi deeply resonates here…
“I searched for God and found only myself
I searched for myself and found only God.”
Such is the truth, worth remembering in every breath.
“Inhale a prayer in every inspiration.
Exhale with gratitude in every now.”
Dance is one of the most revealing forms of expression. Body never lies. Movements unmask the truth within. And that is precisely the way it heals you.
Healing Art of Expression.
Self awareness through self-expression articulates the suppressed emotions. It unravels the depths of your being. Dancing can lift you from where you are and transform your heart and mind to seeing beyond the bare visible. It reflects the profound truths within. Dancing awakens the spirit of life.
Often it is the neglect and disconnect with our body, as we grow that alienates us from ourselves.
Dancing works to stay aligned body mind and spirit. It is one of easiest, practical and effective ways to connect with oneself.
Dancing regularly alleviates stress anxiety disease and depression. Dance integrates and invigorates every cell in the body and consistency is the key to great health and happiness.
When you dance you sense who you are.
Personally in my life, my way to deal with lifes challenges has been with movements ranging from walking to dancing.
Post a good walk or a dance session most of our so called brewing unrest in the mind and body settles down.
Our body provides us tools through movements for self expression but it needs sustaining and support.
Our body needs acknowledging acceptance, respect recognition recovery and regeneration time as much as stimulation and activity.
Dancing movements presents itself in many forms and every form has an advantage worth exploring.

What is it that powers and energizes our movements?
What calms and eases us in.
All is, in the flow…
Of our breath in this now.
And how it can flow enveloping and encompassing,
Connecting and complementing each other like an elegant dance!In the inhale and exhale
All is in the learning
To flow and dance with life!
Creativity births and shapes itself through artists, time after time in eternity.
Art is a deeply personal experience and yet quite symbolic to a generation in time.
What today constitutes the Modern & Contemporary Art will soon become relics of the past that tried to catch up on the times.
Here is one such simple artistic vision in recent times that moved a chord in me.
What a particular work of art makes you feel, is more important than what it looks like.
Wouldn’t you agree?
What makes you turn towards an art?
What kind of artworks attract you?
When words propose in a flow
That is persuading and all pervading
No matter the rhyme or form
It becomes poetry
Creating a zen like feeling
That makes you want to be
In that state of awareness
Inspite of knowing
Everything moves on…
Have you ever been enticed by the eloquence of words?
Personally I have many favorites
But these profound words by Gibran deeply impacted me…
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
Infact all the lines that follow are equally poignant as well as profound.
So much wisdom in those words for life and living.
Which is your favorite piece of poetry?
Do your remember those verses vividly ?
Would love to know!
Sometimes art simply shapes up in the nuances of expression.
Every artistic expression
Speaks of a certain experience
Of a narrative from a perspective
That can both personal or impersonal.
Yet it deeply connects the art & artist.
In those unique circumstances
That may birth the flow & the shaping.
And when the art becomes a spectacle.
The spectator interpretations
Can be equally enigmatic
As much as deeply interconnected.
All in the nuances of the artistic expression.
