Breathe in Peace

Own your breath

Inhale the good

Let go the spurious

Anything that never matters

Is bound to bounce off.

What is necessary receive

With atmost regard.

Your breathe holds the key

Unlock the healing potential

As you breathe deeper

With all of your awareness

In every inhale and exhale.

Breathe in peace.

Waltz of the lights

Waltz of lights on the water….

Down the memory lane

A boat, a river, and I.

A canal trip on the River Reie

Beautiful Bruges at night

Shimmering lights

Dancing on water

Ever so gently

Creating a moment

Worth a capture!

What is beautiful?

Here is a beautiful forward that caught my eye.

When they asked her to reveal her beauty secrets, Audrey Hepburn wrote this beautiful text that was later read at her funeral.

′′ To have attractive lips, speak kind words.

To have a loving look, look for the good side of people.

To look skinny, share your food with the hungry.

To have beautiful hair, let a child cross it with his own fingers once a day.

To have a beautiful poise, walk knowing you’re never alone, because those who love and loved you accompany you.

People, even more than objects, need to be fixed, spoiled, awakened, wanted and saved: never give up on anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a hand, you’ll find them at the end of both your arms.

When you become old, you will discover that you have two hands, one to help yourself, the second to help others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, in her face or in her way of fixing her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the door open to her heart, the source of her love.

The beauty of a woman doesn’t lie in her makeup, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It is the tenderness that gives love, the passion that it expresses.

The beauty of a woman grows over the years ′′

Dances of the world : Argentine Tango

Dancing is the ultimate art of expression of the spirit of life. Every part of the world has a unique set of dances that set it apart yet find some similarities somewhere. And that’s what is the strength of the creative art of movements, in the interconnects of community, culture , history, traditions as well as a reflection of the expression of changing times in the Dance Connection, and that is what beautiful about ‘Dance’ itself.

On the occasion of International Tango Day on 11 th December…

As a Celebration of Tango Dancers across the world …Sharing a few verses on Tango with a beautiful Tango Watch “Andrea Vighi y Chiara Benati – Milonga para as Missoes”

Tango

Born in the dark alleys of Argentina

The stark truth emerges of murky beginnings in the 18th century

Frequented mostly by slaves, immigrants in the ports of Buneos Aires and even Uruguay.

There were even bans on many of these tango musical gatherings.

The dance form began with countless influences of European and native culture.

Watch

Argentine Tango is both energetic and enigmatic

It has the strength and soul to show.

Equally exotic and evocative

Intriguing and beguiling

The lead and follow is beyond genders

For connection is beyond the physicality

For beside the passion play plain to see,

There is something quite alluring & attractive in the movements.

Two people apparently moving as one

The footwork entices and enthralls

The feet move with a mind all their own

But articulating a drama through the feet.

Watch

Slow, steady or sharp and staccato movements

Each pair of feet, teasing the other

Challenging into a seemingly deadly duel of the feet.

Hitting all the right notes

Never missing a beat

Never stepping unto another

Except for a flip a dip or a show stopping lift thrown in.

If you want to see the drama of life and living,

Watch the synergy of energy playing

In a soulful yet spirited tango of two dancers.

There is rivetting romance,

Yet strikingly serious and sombre in notion.

Depths of emotion & unbridled passion

Emanating in an artistry of motion.

Today there are so many versions of the Tango

Off shoots and diverse cultural interpretations.

That created new interpretations of the way the dance is danced.

In hold, in form, in stance and in steps. That it’s almost untraceable.

Tango today is alluring as ever with dark days remaining just a history.

Yet retaining the mystery and appeal, Captivating with its intensity.

The connects so rooted in the embrace and hold, that makes the fancy footwork so effortless.

Tango truly speaks eloquently more than ever before…

Thankful

To dance is to move with all of you.

To dance is to have hope in the living.

To dance is to feel the spirit of life in the movement.

To dance is to know the value of time.

To dance is to feel the rhythm in the beat.

To dance is to sense the subtlety of life.

To dance is to acknowledge the life in every moment.

I am thankful…to the art of dance 💃

CIRLE OF CONNECTIONS

We are connected

In the Infinite tapestry

Of life and living.

As we dance with life in gratitude

We gradually, sense the strength

In the circle of conscious connections.

Energy is omnipresent

In the quantum level
In our cosmic consciousness
Our energies, transforms itself
As a pattern in the making
Charting us along
the evolutionary pathway.

Our imagination is energy
Of the source code
Dancing in all its uniqueness
Yet energy at its core is oneness
For all is interdependence
In the interweaved tapestry
Of life and living.

Collating confounding concepts Conundrum of collectives
Of creative connections into
Coexistence in collaboration

Of potential into the possibilities
Modifying thoughts to morphing ideas
Energy may alter in shape and form
Yet the truth of energy is omnipresence.

Beyond imagination…

There is space beyond

Beyond what is imagination

Thats awaiting your awareness

For its opening creative interpretation

All is not what is,

What is is not all…

In detattaching from notions and judgments
You may begin the journey to sense the now
But in the course of time gradually
There is a letting go of immediate conclusions and
In that dimensional awareness increases
Where our imagination is able to receive in acceptance than just
projecting…

In such a state of conscious consideration
Arrives profoundness beyond apparent realities
Association find new unique meanings
Therein beyond the boxes, imagination pirouttes
Beyond repetitions & recapitulations.
Creativity sparks in sensing the miracle of now.

Edge of balance

Balancing on the edge of balance

Our lifes, hopes and aspirations

Have a different meaning

For they are sensed in vividity

Tethering, quivering in the now

To the preciousness of time.

Silent in the stillness of being

No matter the applause of achievement

Success takes on a fresher perspective

With all at stake in this now

So very embedded in the vulnerability

In the river of time.

Happy Festivities

Happy Diwali to all here.
Sharing a few musings from my mother.



Tamaso ma Jyothirgamaya.

On this Diwali let us
Illuminate our hearts.
Ignorance n impediments
Vanish in that brilliance.

Let Faith, prayer, compassion
And humility fill the place
While false beliefs, prejudices
Hatred & anger
Dissolve without a trace.

Past year has taught us
Many lessons.
Many have learnt
The real values our lives need.


A disciplined lifestyle
With resilience will take us far.
The core values our ancestors had
Are not mere lessons in vain.
They are real essence of health
With gratitude, embracing all.

Time to rectify our deeds
Done in the quest to excel.
Mother Nature knows well
How to balance & dwell.
Let’s co-exist without harming,
Valuing all lives, be it in any form.

Let this Festival of Lights
Bring harmony & happiness.
Together we will protect
This precious divine gift
Undoing all our wrongs
Restoring what truly belongs.

A Very Happy Deepawali
To all of you,
Be safe and healthy.
Stay blessed ever.

As we celebrate this beautiful festival of lights lets all take some time to connect with the cosmic lights and feel its blessed presence within us all 🙂

Dancing In Harmony





Dance not to impress
Dance to express 
Dance for no one but you

In the dance sometimes
The dance begins to lead the way
But know you choose the way.

Choose to pause between the steps
When you need to balance the self
To dance again from the center of your being.




You are the dance, the dance is in you
But you must abide
By the truth of your being

If you dance without your soul
Or if you dance without your spirit
You feel empty as you are not there.

Then you are not true to your purpose
To express the way of your being.
So tune in to authenticity.

There may be many distractions
Along the way of dancers dancing
Different dances for different  reasons






Every life has its own purpose
Whats relevant to stay truly aligned
To dance in harmony with your being.

Step into your harmonious self



Nature of harmony is healing

Soothing sounds of the gentle waves

Ease the inner recesses of the mind

Greenery growing in synchrony

Inspite of the abandon of wilderness

Calms the body and mind

Refreshing smell of the first rain

Is truly invigorating to the spirit

All of nature when in balance

Is a dance of Harmony

Align to this harmony

Sense the joy of the interconnection.

Step into your harmonious self.

Life & Living



There is an art of life and living
Be freehearted in giving.

Sense every nuance of this now
Express the love of life in this moment.




Tune in to rhythms playing in life
Like the dancer who dances
Emoting through the movements
Tuning into the  awareness in every step

Dance with all of your being.



Connect unabashedly
Life and times move swiftly
Regret never the moment lost in doubt
Engage with this now passionately.



You will give yourself the greatest gift
The gift of living than simply existing.
You will fulfill the purpose of your being.
You will  make your life worth living

Nature fascinates


We explore it in unique ways
Some of us lookup at the sky
Admiring the infinite vastness
Of spaces above and beyond

Some of us look down  at the ground
Preferring  to  dig deep into nature
To witness the foundation  of living
Exploring the very roots of the life


Some choose to dream and envision
What might be, in  hope for the morrow
Some sit in stillness  witnessing their breath
Knowing all the truths of life is within.

Some prefer to dance with life
In this now as it unfolds
Accepting nature as it appears
Preferring  to make best of its moments.
