All in good faith!

The power that creates

The omnipresence

Is all knowing consciousness

That is there to take care

All of creation

Cannot be without a reason

Trust the purpose

Keep the faith

Faith is all there is

Without faith nothing is

Passion & Perseverance

Have you ever wondered

What is it on your path

That makes you persevere

Like no tommorow

To keep giving all of you…

Something that is on the fringes

Something tangible and yet intangible

It is that which sparks you up

Nothing feels unbearable

Its as if your mind body & soul

Is finally integrated in the sensing

Of the brilliance at work

Beyond yourself.

You will know that when you meet

The purpose of your being

At some point in your life perhaps

In the most unexpected of ways

You will find in yourself

An energy summoned from within

To reckon with to persevere on.

Such is the dance of abundance

Of creation at play

Making life resonate to its cosmic ways…

Art of Movement

Personally speaking, I have a deep interest in the art of movements, especially the ones that elucidate the flow… perhaps that is why I love dancing but on the other hand I have been equally captivated by the beauty of Tai chi and more so Qi Gong.

The healing energy of movement has often been a subject of deep passion, respect and research for me.

Likewise I am especially fond of the flowing Waltz as well. Since childhood, dancing comes naturally to me but have always found myself grappling to understand why martial art is even necessary.Until much later I started exploring the potency of energy in each of us…through a little introduction into Tai chi as well by conscious choice.

Allow me to present my reflections on this subject in a flow….

In a dance
There is an interconnect
Of emotion and movement
As to emote is to sense
The feeling in the flow…

In dance there is an awareness
Of moving in response
Without anticipation.
As in one step less,
The music moves on
And you are left to improvise
On how to match the steps in rhythm.

Yes, truly to dance is to enjoy the life in the moves.

In martial arts
There is flow too
But a flow that is ever in alertness,
In strategic moves and self defense
The speed and swiftness
In reaction and response.

Martial arts often feels like dance… t
But often the difference
Is between life and death.

Both are connected in the deepest sense and yet distinctive like chalk and cheese.

The intention to dance and to fight…is what differentiates.

We dance to let go, to enjoy this now and celebrate it.
In awareness is a flow that merges in harmony to synch in with now in artistry of the moves

The warrior is fighting for peace for survival against all odds
Not knowing what is the next move but yielding to the now to decipher the countermove and strike.
Here too there is often a display of extreme artistry of motion in accuracy of time.

To learn both, takes dedication and practice in patience.
But most of all is the need for relentless will & passion to persevere .

Yes, there is a dancer in a warrior

And a warrior in the dancer.

Choice rests within you.

Just remember, to dance is to live the moments and explore its most aesthetic potential in the flow… choose not to make dance a fight.

Stay joyful in peace.

To learn martial arts is to get into the arena and survive.
Attack or in self defense with least possible harm to get out of harms way to stay in peace.

Both may have their own relevance in purpose
To negate one is to look at only one half of the circle
Just as much as joy is part of life
Safekeeping the freedom to be
Is equally important in every now…

Do you want to dance in peace
Do you want to fight for peace.
Choice is yours to make
Peace or war!

Savvy.

WISDOM OF NATURE

Is the beguiling beauty of nature
Meant to have its own purpose
Afterall,everything is connected
Nothing is accidental.

However free in abandon we may feel
In this moment, we are bound
By the laws of nature
And its in these tangible connects
In being part of nature
We are deeply disturbed
By the imbalances of nature.

All of animaldom chooses harmonious
Coexistence with natures laws.
Unlike humans who try to outsmart nature and its ways.
Yet nature nourishes and nurtures itself in every now.
Such is the truth of life and living in nature.

High time to evolve with the lessons
nature shares.
Know that there is always a reason
To the way things are…

What we cannot see with our eyes
Nature of nature, emotes through our senses
Leaving the heart imprints,

Of wisdom in impressions for all of posterity…

Spectacular Trees

Recently I came across this picture
Of a truly unique tree called the Tibetan Cherry…

Mesmerized by its brilliant red hues
I was drawn to research a bit more…

The more I read about it
The more I was drawn to sharing this…

I dedicate these following couplets
To this fascinating vision of a tree.

One of the myriad expressions
Of nature’s majestic manifestation.

Alluring copper coloured tree
That creates awe and wonder.

Also known as the Paperbark Cherry
This is a tall tree, growing to around thirty feet in height.

Known to be a native Chinese tree with glossy trunk.
And bumpy bands of lines around it.

Resplendent with red berries, during autumn
Its foliage turns into golden yellow…

And by spring emerges a bloom
Of tiny white flower clusters.

Such a spectacular ornamental shrub
That I would love to meet someday!

On Trustfulness

Between belief and trust
There is a fine line
That makes all the difference
For to believe, is one thing
But to trust, is to let go.

In this trustfulness
Is where all the magic happens
And where the wonder comes alive
And beliefs finds meaning

In the ability to trust
Comes along the surrender
And the ability to accept the let go
In knowing there is always hope.

To trust, is to know there is
Always Something more
Than you or I
That will have our back

In complete trust
Life manifests and flourishes
Beyond the niggling doubts
And the unfounded insecurities

Trust is power that creates possibilities
So important to trust and be trustworthy.
Trust and allow yourself to realize its potential.
To acknowledge trust, is a step ahead in faith.

Take nothing for granted

Take nothing for granted

There is always a reason

For things to be, where they are

As they are, however they are…

Let your heart be ever grateful

For things that you have in this now.

And for that which passed you by…

All is well …in this now.

Stay thankful

And take nothing for granted!

Dance with all of you!

Two left feet or two right feet
Just learn to swing to the beat
And find the rhythm of your own heart.
And learn to dance and make a healthy start…

Just a little step and sway …
Bring the balance in your way.
Yes all we need is just a ‘Dance’ everyday!

Are you your own friend?

A true friend is there to support you if you fall.

Allow space for you to grow

Cheer you along the way

Take interest in your journey

Mean well for you

Stop you from self harm

Believe in you without a doubt

Yet dare to tell the truth to you.

Be with you so you are never alone.

Now think about it…

Are you your own best friend ?

Says it all.

All is in the journey of self discovery

The simple act of nourishing

The soul temples we live in…

Bringing balance, harmony

And happiness in and around us.

Train of thoughts

We are filled with countless thoughts

Every waking moment of life

Even more so when we are alone

What we do with those thoughts

Is what matters.

How dense are those thoughts

How much vividity & how much lightness….

This is what decides

The course of life itself.

Its all interconnected

Where the train of thoughts lead us.

Choose to think well.

Garden of life

The heart feels

The mind thinks

And generates a seed of thought

But the heart is all encompassing

In the core of the heart

Is the garden of life.

The heart is all pervasive

The heart is willingness

It accepts the seeds of thoughts

It colours it with emotion

Sometimes in all its vividity

In the brightest of tints

Or at times in shadowing tones

Between the dark and light of life

The heart nurtures and nourishes

Thoughts seeds to life.

In positively enriching thoughts

It empowers life to evolve .

What truly matters is..

To plant a positive seed in your heart

Allow the mind to help the heart

Discard the unwanted,

Weed out the unnecessary

Trim the excess growth

Support the saplings of goodwill

Balancing between the heart & mind

Every moment of awareness

Can change the course of life!

Waves of change.

In the journey with time
Lifes toughest battles
Always find a way.
Life goes on no matter
Paving the path
To find solutions
Along the way.

The wisdom of resilience
Is to acknowledge
The circle of life
Remember the challenges
Always surface a solution
Underneath the giant shadow of trees
Mushrooms possibilities of hope.

In difficult moments
Think of life
As ocean waves
Waltzing with the tides
Highs and lows
Are both part of the flow
Think of yourself
Realize you are
Not just in the flow
You are the flow

Sense the surge
Of empowerment
Flooding through you
In this very thought
You have it all within you
To steer through
The troubled waters
To bridge through the gaps
And find a way.

To rise above
The tumultuous waves
Always know
There is hope
In the horizon across
Light shines
Beyond the darkest night.
Change is the only constant
Like night and day
Nature shows the way.

Tumbling down
Is temporary
Flipping over
Is a fraction of a moment.
Eventually leading
To new beginning
In hope and trust.
All is in flux
Course through
Sail through the waves
With a heart full of hope.

Crossing the Culture Threshold!



There is great power in words…
To  charm another,influence or drive a point home.

Engagement online can turn better on bitter in a split second.

It is all in the choice of words used to convey a message.
For there is much influence the words….such is the power of words.
 

Sometimes knowingly or otherwise  the way we express  or communicate   to another  by the words we may use may bring a chasm than  create a bridge.


Sometimes when we see another life, as beautiful and cant curb the need to express it away, we often get caught up in our own words and unknowingly end up …

Crossing the Culture Threshold!

What to one might be just a poetic expression

To another might be a glitch of discretion.

Express if one must

Feel free to feel the way you feel is the way to feel

But only as long as anothers peace you don’t unknowingly steal.

For at times in the surging words of emotion…

Arises unnecessary stress and discomfort.

Better to know the pause in the space between our steps

And value your edges in every move.

For in every positive step in discretion

There is simply the strength of trust without mention.

When I penned these lines they were specifically for driving the message home gently that no one can tread on another’s emotional space without permission especially online using the power and persuasion of words…


True respect for another being can simply be about letting others be.
