The Dance of the Words

Like a pen striking words on a paper
The first draft there is much to write
But in the second there is discipline
As words are omitted to drive the point.

In the ensuing edits
There is order and structure
Helping matter get the message
In the conveyance of the creativity.

Like in art so in life
The dance goes on
Sometimes making a point
At times lost in translations.

The mood and setting may change
The course of improvisations
Sometimes blatantly
At times in all subtlety.

In depths of consciousness awareness
Arrive valuable insights
On spacing or styling
On perfecting the portraying
On emotions conveyed
On composition and construction
On overall content
Until the points are perfected
To express openly

Relentless as is our thoughts
Such is way of the words
Our imagination is infinite
All pervasive and expansive
And in all that’s said and done
There is much left unsaid
And yet while the words flow on
The dance goes on…

Sense of Grounding

The ground beneath us
Paves the way to move
There is always more to us
A little more to discover

In every moment along the way
And in the unfolding of our life
Tumbles a plethora of understandings
That opens up potential possibilities

To get where you want to go
You must arise from where you are
And be ready to take a step
Make a move to dare and explore.

The journey is full of challenges
Trying are the consequences
And yet change is the only constant
Things are never the same.

You and I evolve in time
Value the humble beginnings
For they ground you like nothing else

Our roots have way of their own
Holding you in good stead
In the pinnacle of success
And as you touch the ground.

Bravehearts

Life is beautiful and yet challenging in itself!

We define our life

In how we respond to life.

In moments of merriment to melancholy.

The changes bring along the challenges.

And in it is the wisdom of the now.

To remember the interdependence

And know we are not alone!

To know life is simpler in the letting go!

Many deep-rooted issues that we choose to bury within manifest themselves in time as diseases of the mind and body.

We are better off in the sharing…

When things are too tough to handle

There is no point in holding it all.

The remedy is never in suppression.

But our world is happier wearing masks

In its facades the truth submerges

Only to rise like a Phoenix

Unexpectedly at the most inopportune of times.

Time to accept our vulnerabilities,

And find the strength from it.

Commend a share from the heart.

Support and appreciate their efforts.

Build a sense of community to help

For the truth is we are all in it together.

The healing is in the sharing
In the very ability to share
The first step of healing begins
For often in brushing under the carpet
The debris gets collected in time
And manifests grief in unexpected ways…
In the very vulnerability of life
Is the strength of living.

Kudos to ‘Brave-hearts’ for sharing their stories.
For it can inspire hope to someone somewhere…
Who needs to know, all is well in life and living
And hope is here to stay!

Sense of being!

Where is your sense of being?
Your space to make sense of life!

Are you acquainted well and in tune with your habitat?
How well do you know of who you are?
Can you fathom the potential possibilities
Of your ubiquitous and unique life?

Between the known and unknown
Of the simple to the complex
Emerge new patterns in the making
From the reigning confusion in the chaos.

Creating in the exploring
Illusory dimensions in reflections
What is logical and yet elusive
The ambiguity of certainty!
And yet …

Our sense of being, while creating new patterns of thoughts is deeply rooted in nature, and in nurture, which gives it a sense of direction in spite of the chaos and confusion.

It will find its own way!

On Waves

To dare as much as to retreat
In the ebb and flow of life
Waves teaches us much!
To reach the pinnacle of success
Is one thing
But truth of nature is, it changes.

So the glory must recede in humility
Such is the way of balance.
There is no gain the holding on
There is grace in the letting go!
Such is the circle of life .

Our vibrance

Our universe is full of waves of energy. And all life is energy in varied forms .

In the subatomic level all is vibrational and moving .We are all pulsating oceans of energy fields. This very waves of energy is what makes us unique as we are in ourselves and in the way we interact with one another.

Sometimes these waves of energy are seemingly stagnant and at times moving in momentous speed.

Life is full of vibrations. Sometimes you sense its brilliance and at other times it is so subtle and subjective to our level of understanding at that point in life. Yet there are reasons for why you emit the vibrations that you do. And it’s all interconnected.

From the food, you eat your choices have a way of influencing your body and your body affects the way you feel and think.

Our thoughts have much to do with our emotions and thus the behaviour of every cell is affected in a relational way to another.

Some simple ways to raise your positive vibrations…

Walk outdoors

Smile and laugh more

Spend time in nature

Have a hobby

Support a cause

Exercise, dance & play

Listen to soothing music

Eat vegetables and fruits

Drink adequate water

Think well for one and all!

And most of all

Love life and live it lovingly!

Black & White 1

Black?

A superimposition
Of the colours of life
A definition of density
A notion of authority
Of fear and formality

Deemed to be elegant
And ultimate sophistication
Yet powerful and reserved
Sometimes it denotes danger
It is an absence of colour
Yet gives depth to all colours.

Black is known to hide the obvious
An achromatic colour without hues
Known to absorb than let go.
Its deep dark and mysterious
Can be restrictive and restraining.

Often not just worn for style
It protects from interference. Perhaps it helps to retreat behind black
When facing a tough time in life
Life a personal crisis or illness.

It then becomes an anchor
In support that gives time
To heal as it protects with its opaqueness
And helps bridge through
The deepest insecurities.

Stark truth reveals
The darkest of dark
Unseen matters of energy
Exists in understanding
The yet unknown.

For every presence
Has a reason to be.
In the flow of life
Darkness and light
Play their valuable parts
As black and white.

There is an intriguing and enigmatic aspect in black. Is it because of its intensity to capture attention? Or is it because it has the ability to bring forth and define anything and make a statement. The above thoughts are an ode to all the shades of life in the making.

In this two-part series, I explore Black and White consecutively and its strength in interconnectedness…What are your perspectives? Do feel free to share.
