Live Life Lovingly!

Hope is here to stay!

Covid has come
Covid will go
Herd immunity
Now at play
Will leave
With markings
Of a common flu


And yet the waves
Will leave us
Imprints of Resilience
In the cells of our being
Progressively in time
But speaking of the future
If we are able to see
Beyond the nightmare
Of the past


There is a shift
In the way of life
Of the way of living
At work & at play
The impacted have wisened
Earlier than others
But there is an awareness
No less in the rethinking
Of  the workplace that works
From physical  to hybrid.


Exploring possibilities
With our virtual connections
With precious commute time saved
Families  have sensed the togetherness
Experienced the pros & cons of wfh
Yet work has continued
Buisness collapsed yet many revived
Reinventing  the ways of work


A sense of knowing  prevails
All is not lost
For technology  has come in aid
Of mankind at its hour of need
A semblance  of normalcy regained
But with a redesigned version
Of what is the new normal
Organization  operates
Repattererned in the sensing
Of what is redundant
And what actually works!
Hope is here to stay…

Fractality of creativity

If we were to only reach deeper
Than we know see or believe
Is the truth and begin to accept
And acknowledge the yet unknown
The unfamiliar & the unexplored


Structured to the unstructured
The understandable to the inexplicable
Sensations in our emotions.
All vying for our attention
Or even the patterns manifesting itself…

In space continuum
We are opening ourselves
To the spectre of multi dimensions
Possibilities are infinite
Fractality of creativity.

Breathing free

A beautiful share

“She sat at the back and they said she was shy,
She led from the front and they hated her pride,
They asked her advice and then questioned her guidance,
They branded her loud, then were shocked by her silence,
When she shared no ambition they said it was sad,
So she told them her dreams and they said she was mad,
They told her they’d listen, then covered their ears,
And gave her a hug while they laughed at her fears,
And she listened to all of it thinking she should,
Be the girl they told her to be best as she could,
But one day she asked what was best for herself,
Instead of trying to please everyone else,
So she walked to the forest and stood with the trees,
She heard the wind whisper and dance with the leaves,
She spoke to the willow, the elm and the pine,
And she told them what she’d been told time after time,
She told them she felt she was never enough,
She was either too little or far far too much,
Too loud or too quiet, too fierce or too weak,
Too wise or too foolish, too bold or too meek,
Then she found a small clearing surrounded by firs,
And she stopped…and she heard what the trees said to her,
And she sat there for hours not wanting to leave,
For the forest said nothing, it just let her breathe”

On Gentleness of Being

Life is precious
And so are relationships
Remember, gentle is the way 
When you walk with another
There is much you do not know
You never know the hidden truths
For some wounds are deep and invisible.
So walk gently, care sincerely live lovingly

There is always a reason

We know not yet

Keep your faith alive

And celebrate the life you have

Magic of New Beginnings…

One of my favorite quotes:

“Tomorrow I’ll think of some way… after all, tomorrow is another day.

Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind

This post is a dedication to a hopeful spirit.

No matter the calamities

No matter the challenges that come along…

In moments of deep despair

Know there is light around the corner

When the night turns dark

Know the dawn awaits full of light

Keep the faith & trust there is always more

In the infinite abundance

When one door closes

Another opens they say!

Keep the hope alive in your heart

And trust the magic of new beginnings💙

Life

Bloom!

Give life everything you’ve got, and life will give its best back to you.

Trust life to deliver

Everything at the right moment

But most of all

Believe in your life

Believe in yourself!

Heartprints of Serendipity

How intuitive are you?

Do u sense the subtlety

In nature and its mystical ways

Of sending signs and symbols your way?

For you to understand perspectives

Beyond assumptions & notions

To create an insightful vision

Of the unfolding realms

Of the possibilities in the potential.

There is always a reason

Why you are gifted with intuitive intellect.

Consider ways to use it for goodwill

Think larger, widen your perspectives

For the world at large

Can you use this subtlety of knowing

And leave heartprints of Serendipity?

Partner with peace

Value of power of peace within you…

Today in this moment
Are you ready 
To partner with peace
Do you have the power
Of a grateful  heart
That knows to live light
And waltz in harmony with life!

Path of Equanimity

Peace begins in our hearts

In our actions in awareness

Peace spreads its wings

Unfolding its magic

Interspersing the seeds of peace

In the hearts of humans

When we embrace ourselves

With all our conflicts and chaos

With our inexplicable challenges

We embrace the peace

Already deeply embedded within

In between and betwixt

The rest and movement

Peace regenerates itself

In the middle path

Peace finds its balance.

In the path of Equanimity

Art of Self Removal

Throwback to last week when I recorded a demo and forgot about it 

Shown here is one of the riskiest parts of the process — removing myself from the fragile balance without disturbing it.

In order to balance something like this, I usually need to basically wrap my body around it while sitting and building.. using knees to hug / stabilize the lower section(s) like a scaffold. But once I find zero, I need to remove my body without causing the structure to collapse.. on my body.. it’s when I’m most vulnerable.

But as seen here, I keep my gaze firmly on the structure while maneuvering my body away. It’s like a weird hyper focus where I’m spatially entranced on the relative positions of the rocks, and if any data point deviates from the whole, I have maybe a second to react before it becomes dangerous, especially for my left hand here which is planted on the stump I was sitting on, hoisting my body away.. if that top decides to fall on that hand, bones would likely break… not a situation where I can afford to break focus.

Some self removals are easier than others — it really just depends on a firm hold for my right hand behind me, the sensitivity of the structure itself, and what the wind is doing..

This post made me think further on

The Art of Self Removal

In any creation

The creator is inextricably

Interweaved in the tapestry of creation

And yet the Creator detaches the self

To step away from the creation

Distinguishing the completion

Of one phase of the creation

For it to begin it’s own journey of being

Travel Trails Antwerp

The Antwerpen Christmas Market is spread out over several streets and squares lighting up the entire historical centre of Antwerp beautifully into a huge and happening zone to stroll around in…

Glowing in the night!
Beating the winters chill
Sitting by warm fire pits…
Sipping hot glühwein!

And the mistletoe?
Well its no small branch
But a giant one indeed!
Fit for all the crowd that gather under
Just to share their love for each other….💞

Artistry



To a true artist
The medium is immaterial
Everything  is association
The elements converge
Every thing connects
Subtlety emerges distinctly
Dancing to the winds of change

Inner motivation leads the way
To find meaningful expressions
In the myriad manifestations
Even in the seemingly banal existence
Creativity sparks from everywhere.
Such is state of fractal flow
Of Art & Artistry.

But then is there a true or fake artist?
For beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
And possibilities of creativity infinite
Art is a moment of reckoning
Of acknowledgement and appreciation
Evoking critical responses & feedbacks
In support or diversity of emotions
Forming  new patterns in the experiences
Invoking the spirit of creation
Once more…

Be an illuminator

Light a lamp of hope
Be an illuminator of hearts
Be led by the pull of passion
Envisage possibilities in faith
Envision the pathway beyond
In collaboration and connection

Your energy  is expansive
Sense the synergies
Allow yourself to explore possibilities
The expansiveness of the spirit within
Light the pathway for others to follow.

Preciousness of Peace

Peace is a state of being
More than just a state of mind
Peace needs consistent practice
You have to nurture your heart
Towards a state of peaceful being

The mind wanders in a million ways
The heart flutters at a moment’s notice
Such is the way of life and living
So let your dancing heart & mind
Find their way towards coexistence
Acknowledging each of their diverse states.

Let their potential converge to strengthen
Let the sense of peace be understood well
Until peace becomes of a way of life.
Care to protect your peace.
