Shining through

Just having the courage to express ourselves, we open ourselves to a vulnerable and creative self that is the light in us shining through….:)

Vision in white

Beautiful is the word I sense

Ethereal vision in white.

Under a canopy of sky so blue

A treat to envision

This is the White-wisteria

The Japanese tree.

Your choice!

Our humanity is within us awaiting expression.

Every one of us has the choice to be humane.

“Sometimes we’re fractured by the choices we make; sometimes we’re shattered by things we would never have chosen. But our brokenness is also the source of our common humanity, the basis for our shared search for comfort, meaning, and healing. Our shared vulnerability and imperfection nurtures and sustains our capacity for compassion.”
— Bryan Stevenson

There is something touchingly tender in every instance of humanity in action be it in thoughts words or deeds.

Our humanity makes us touch the true purpose of our being alive .

Wouldn’t you think so?

On Love & Inclusion

A poignant tale of a little child sensing the favoritism by her own father was shared by my friend Ali Anani in his post….

https://www.linkedin.com/posts/ali-anani-phd-15305319_love-experience-empathy-activity-6970262610063589376-9Fbe?utm_source=share&utm_medium=member_desktop

Here are my reflections on this post… which I had initially shared with him privately but then realized that perhaps it needs to be read and understood in the larger context of the trials and tribulations in life and living..

Truth has a way of baring open the wounds of the heart and mind on its path of healing the hurt.
For truth is on its own path of self correction in this world.
For unfairness and
Injustice has to somedayfind justice
Exclusion to inclusion
Doubts to clarity.

When truth speaks
In one way or another
It is important to listen
In empathy without judgements

Truth speaks as it is
In all of innocence
Or in wisdom of awareness.

And yet…
Innocence can be daunting  to handle . But addressing the truth one way or the other
Leads to discoveries of how little we know or of what is sensed & perceived.


In the story  that my friend shared…here are instances of lack of inclusion in a family

Where in one day there is marked difference in the way the father speaks,
When the child says
Why are you speaking to me…

Interesting to note that you perceived  the young child as witty
Whereas another may perceive  it as defiance,or even an evidence of an awareness of lack of inclusion and discrimination at this household in the young child’s mind.
And that she is voicing  it in all of innocence.

What would be of significance  is how the father addresses  this brewing disconnect.

Lack of love can be a difficult  phase at any age especially  for a child.
Let’s trust the universe to show the way for this child to receive what she is yearning for one way or another.
May every life be able to sense  love and live life lovingly.

Trust you.

I read these two lines by Stan Smith today…

Experience tells you what to do
Confidence allows  you to do it .

Will also add…

And patience paves the path.
For all that you need
Will reveal itself in time.
Trust yourself to deliver.

Sharing my photo of a beautiful bloom from my garden…for who better than a flower to express this truth of life.

Think well & trust you.

Keep Sparkling

It’s often good to remember you are born to live.

Don’t live because you are born, don’t go where life takes you . Make life come alive where you are…

Creative flow…

Travelling in Creativity

Travelling light
Flowing free
Musings in the mulling
Limitless abundance
Unparalleled potential


Beyond bars, timeless
Harmony in syñchromy
Unassuming uniqueness
Unrelated ubiquitous

Body intelligence

Art of life

Is about living

With care and consideration

Being aware of moderation

Everything is best in balance

For excess is wastage

Of precious resources

When body mind and soul

Choose in consciousness

Tap into your body intelligence

On Painting

To me…

Painting is an iterative journey
Full of surprises in the flow
Something to stumble upon
To follow on & find meaning.

In letting go of the control
You begin to see the guidance
Forming in the impressions
Sometimes subtle or strong

As the brush moves on canvas
Leaving imprints of colours
Patterning itself in a narrative
Creating a purpose for itself.

Painting is a tool in trusting
In faith, in the discovery
Shaping itself through you
Bridging beyond in the now.

Ordinary could be a gift in disguise

These inspiring words are by William Martin The Parent’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents 🙂

Amazing nature

Blooming in my terrace garden…
Roses have a beauty of their own
Colours contrasting with the green leaves
They blossom and capture hearts
Arrestingly captivating
To look at, enticingly fragrant
So delicate and fragile
But in all their vulnerability
Their charm flows in abundance
Always a sight to behold!
Amazingly significant,
For a life so short lived.
Such is the wonder of life and living
Amazing nature! Amazing beauty!
Teaching us it is not the length of time we live , but in how best we can live the time we have!

Springtime

Keep the Spring in your heart
Then no Winters are too harsh
Or Summers too hot to handle
As Seasons change around you
You sense it all from the hope of your heart.
And hope springs forth eternally…

Subtlety Of Consciousness

All matter is energy 
And we are unique speckles of vibrations.
All resonating in the universality of life and living.
Trust you matter, more than you know 
Believe you can and are making a difference 
As you connect deeply in the universal flow 
Tune in to reflect the truth of your being.
 
Every word every deed 
Every step every move 
Impacts the larger whole 
Just as much as the world around you.
So start with who and what is around you 
Sense your intuitive self talking to you 
Telling much in all its subtlety.
Trust it, for it is abound
With the strength of the subtle energies.
Resonate joy, abundance, balance
Resonate love ,harmony and peace
For you have the power to transform your world

Infinite Abundance

In the vividness  of imagination
At  times there is a turbulence  of thoughts.
Of emotions entwined in the sensing.
Moving beyond, patterns forming…


Inspiration & ingenuity births itself
In the very uniqueness of individuality
Yet the source of creativity is infinity
Such is the divine artistry of creation
