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.

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

IN THIS NOW

There is always a reason

We know not yet

Trust life to deliver

Know life is a puzzle

Every piece fits perfectly eventually

Keep your faith alive

And celebrate the life you have

In this now

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💙

Align in the Flow


Speaking of opposites at play
Between the expansion and contractions.. Between the conflicts and clarity

The dance of the heart and mind goes on
Only to meet somewhere midway in peace
And adjusts itself in the circle of life.

After all there is a place and space
For every manifestation
Somehow everything aligns in the flow

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

On Love

Realizing the many miracles of life is also in knowing love that can move the soul of our being. We can consider ourselves lucky to even have been touched by a love like that!”

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

Discount not your self doubt

Many a times
We find doubts
Are getting in the way
Of our reaching for success

We feel stressed & strained
By uncertainty & doubts
We fear our own strengths
We think we will cave in

Discount  not your self doubt

For it helps you grow
It makes you open up to new learnings
It encourages you to seek insights
It keeps you from complacency.

Your self doubt is an internal switch
That ignites intuitively from within
To rebalance  your running mind.
It helps you revise your strategies

When ego threatens, to trip you over
Your self doubt levels the playing field
It implores you to listen more
Learn more and share more.

Your self doubt can be your ally
In moments which need humility
In moments needing a rethinking
Care to give yourself the benefit of doubt.

Live light!

Carry yourself lightly

On the wings of hope

Let go of worries

Stay free of burdens

Care to let go…

Life is simpler in taking oneself lightly 🙂

On Beliefs

On beliefs

Irony of cognition
As long as our beliefs  are taking us through
We are comfortable
But if our beliefs,  blur our vision
We are confounded
We become guarded
And want to protect our opinions
Even if they are erring
In fact we are most hostile
When we are aware deep within
How wrong we actually are !

Rather than allowing ourselves to evolve
We step in our own way of growth
Becoming mental contortionists
Twisting  and turning
With the assumptions & notions of truth
Until we find an angle that upholds
Our current views.

Our beliefs can be our strength as much as our weaknesses. In allowing ourselves to accept something new or different to what we are used to or expect, we begin to open up our minds and hearts.

Think about your own beliefs, are there moments where you were challenged by your own beliefs,

Were there times when you feel that some of your own beliefs need a thinkover?

Often we assume we are totally in the know and believe it to be so like a frog in the well.

Yet the truth shows up differently from these illusions we live in, and then we realize how far away from the truth we actually are!

There is always more…

Possibilities in the infinity

So much more to learn

So much more to discover

So much more to explore

So much more to know…

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…
