And feel this alive!
Art is meant to align us.
The true purpose of an artform is found in the aligning with the universal consciousness .
Whoever thinks being slow is a weakness
Has not understood its power
In being able to slow down
The propensity to think carefully
To pay attention to detail
To be mindful & cautious
To work with precision
Steadiness and thoroughness
In slowing down, nature teaches
Great lessons in letting go
Like time cannot be contained
Moments are meant to flow
It’s own course
Yet the strength of the slow
Is in the ability to live the now
Recognizing the value of life.
There is an art of the slow
Where the senses activate
And creativity enhances
In thinking and reflecting
In careful consideration
Slow is challenging for some
Yet slow can be earnest practice of mindfulness
Slow begets a response than reaction
Slow can be about building up gradually
And exploring the possibilities
Of the potential in this now.
Slow can be a deliberation
In patience & perseverance
With an effortless grace
Such is the art of the slow.
Life is full of challenges
Along the way
For each and every being
In their own unique ways…
Am reminded of the saying…
It’s never about the weight
But the way you carry it.
Lightness of being
Is knowing how to steer
Through the hurdles
In effortless grace.
Beautiful to witness
The ways of nature
At times adjusting.
But mostly thriving.
No matter the odds.
If time were a river
You will understand
There is a flow to things
Across the manifestations
Everything in time
Has a reason & season to be.
Wonder and amazement too has its own plan
To create curiousity to explore more
To understand there is always more
What’s is to hold on to
Or to give away
Will reveal itself in time
To discard is at times let go in trust and hope
To make space for better to manifest in time.
To dance is to know
The feeling of being alive
To this now in your life
Being present with all of you
Listening and moving
To your own beating heart
For the music and rhythm
Is yours to own and sense.
To dance is to let go
Of the spurious and irrelevant
And reclaim the energy
That is yours to own.
And in that owning
You create moments
Worth living for…
Hope you dance!
Opportunity does not just come to you
You walk to it
And when you do
Remember, you are on a new trajectory
There are new challenges in the changes
Know the strength of your spirit will be tested
Your balance may be tilted
To extremes of possibilities.
Yet, your patience perseverance & passion for your purpose
Will guide you through
And somewhere along the way
in fleeting moments
You will feel that gliding, waltzing feeling
Sensing harmony in the synchrony
To that which you truly love ❤️
What are you waiting for?
Is there a space you love to be
Where you feel most you ?
Where there is respite from chaos
Where there is peace for the sensing
What is that place for you ?
Your home or somewhere far away?
While I love people and enjoy my time with them
And infact get charged by some amazing conversations
I would also love to be by myself
By nature preferably walking
In the calm of a forest trail
Or perhaps on a winding road uphill,
Would love to have a flowing river by my side
and most of all be surrounded by trees
Or even up the mountains
Watching the world from a vantage view.
And then comes the sandy beaches and sea
There are of course those moments to cherish
With the whistling dunes
In all I would love free spaces
where I could sense the earths energy undisturbed.
And be synched in for a while.
May be hugging a tree or an animal
Or walking by a beautiful stream
Or under a canopy of stars at night.
These are spaces for me
To connect deeply within.
How about you?
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.
Full credit to this
Freedom is being able to be all of you
But remembering the rights
Of other lives to be all of them
When we understand…
Our Freedom ends where another’s freedom begins.
How free do you feel in this now
How important is freedom to you?
Can you sense your life flowing
Or is there restraints that bound you
Can you express yourself without hesitation?
Can you speak your mind without fear?
Can you write without worrying if the words may reveal your nature?
Can you walk alone without a care where you live?
Can you wear what you want without fear of ridicule?
Can you dance the way your spirit moves you?
Can you flow in harmony with the spirit in you?
If you have answered more yes than no then consider yourself closer to being truly free.
Freedom is not for giving
Freedom is there for taking
Freedom is being you
As you truly are
Freedom is living
Wherever you sense
You are most you.
How free are you feeling
In this now?
Fruits and vegetables support existence . So important to cultivate gratitude for every bit that comes one’s way.
A gift of nature that was awaiting me at dawn from my terrace garden.
Gratitude and thankfulness to the fresh fruits and vegetables in nature🙏
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?
Your body mind and spirit
When in harmony
Makes life and living easy…
How you see yourself
What you feed yourself
The way you treat yourself
The way you think
Life becomes it.
Be kind with yourself as much with others
Practice self care and compassion
Self care isn’t selfish
Take care to relax
Enjoy the journey
Live life lovingly !
Darkness is a great opportunity to discover the divine face of the light!’
I like the positivity in this quote by Mehmat Murat Ildan the Turkish novelist
Acknowledging the shadow behind the light is understanding the duality of creation and valuing the balance and harmony in every moment .
Peace cometh from light
Boundless and infinite
When it shines from the heart
In every aspiration to breathe
In every inspiration to bow in the benediction of the spirit
Transmute to transcend towards light
Let go of propensities of pettiness
Envelope and embrace this aura so bright
Let the wisdom of light be always in conscious awareness.
And simply remember the light of the suns ray
Will always show the way.
Let us all envelop ourselves with the light of a new dawn and feel the light that envelopes and embraces the world in trust &hope, in peace & faith for a better tommorow for us all.
Happy Diwali to all my readers!
