Dancing Soul

There is something endearing about dancing with a partner, it’s the power to attract another magnetically and charmingly interact with another’s energy  and spirit through dance movement.


A prerequisite to dancing well is one’s ability to take an emotional journey and open oneself and to share and connect to another’s energies .This is what engages the audience and keeps them enthralled. It’s beyond the physicality of steps, patterns, touch, or even the right dance hold or dance frame. It’s in the ability to dance with space, time, yet in complete awareness of one another’s heart of movement.

 I had an opportunity to experience  this just the other day when I witnessed all of this and more in Rohini  (my mother’s friend actually)  a family friend of many years .

I have known her to be a simple religious and a happy go lucky person who also may have been through much personal turmoil like so many others but yet has managed a cheerful disposition every time I met her.

Her characteristic sunny nature would never give away the strife behind the smile. The occasion was her 25 th wedding anniversary  that I got invited to , and as we reached the venue  the couple were at the dais, very understated , a picture of simplicity & composure.

The evening took off, with all their close friends having some wonderful and touching things to say about them both.

There was a small dance floor which soon got filled up with people who were initially hesitant As the music filled the air   many more of us started getting into the groove and dancing. And then I saw her, it was her in her element, dancing from her heart and soul. It was fantastic to see her energetic dancing in full display for the all to see , Her ever calm and composed husband  seemed mesmerized by all the fun moves she did .

In fact everyone was charmed by her passion and for that moment I realized just then that her joyful dancing soul had peeped out from the depths of it all. 

 Kudos to her for keeping the spirit of dancing alive in her through all these years .God bless!

 Dancing from the heart always counts more than perfection of steps. And that’s the ultimate challenge… To keep the mind open, ready, receptive, giving and simple enough, to dare to step out of comfort zones.

My salute to this dancing soul !

On Respect

Respect your self

And show respect to others

In thoughts words & deeds

No matter how deserving

In empathy & compassion

It is a reflection of your nature

It speaks much of who you are.

Others will respect you.

When you respect self effort

As well as another’s

You reinforce self discipline

And let it guide manners

When you dont allow yourself

To be disrespected

None can take you for granted

Or behave as if you don’t matter.

Care to own your space in the sun.

Respectfully…

The world will be better by it.

On Awareness

When the shift is known by the mind
And felt in the heart
Then every thing moves
In conscious awareness.

A Face

A little bit of freetime and a mobile phone art app in your hand can make the moments come alive…

I started to paint the screen with all my favorite colors… but then somehow somewhere in between I sensed a face pop and I continued to sketch away at leisure and found a face staring righton .

Now the face was somewhat serious and I just could not gel with that, as the moment was anything but that, so I just had to play with my fingers on the screen just a bit and lo and behold that face was more appealing to me now.

It’s a work in progress…Yes I could have gone on refining this piece,there is a lot of room for it, but somewhere I just stopped adding more to it ,perhaps I might pick it up in posterity and paint some more.

P.s Must mention I used no stylus, just my fingers for this one. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this piece of art.

How did you like my mobile art ?

Which face resonates with you today?

State of mind

Your happiness is a state of mind

You can change and transform

The way you feel with your mind

Your thoughts are powerful

Keep it positive and hopeful

Make your deepest intentions

Speak with all your heart & mind

For when it is in the right place

All is truly well with you!

Checks

It was three o’clock in the night. The eyes of wife opened with a knock.

She saw four dacoits pointing a pistol at her. They had tied the husband and locked the children in the drawing room.

After searching all the shelves, a good amount of cash was recovered and jewelery was also found.

Then a dacoit said, “Where is the 1.5 lakh iPhone that your brother had sent from America ? And where’s the necklace that your husband had gifted you on anniversary day ? Handover same immediately or else I will shoot.”

The wife handed over all the things out of fear and then asked in amazement, “But brother, how do you know all this ?”

“Hey, we are your Facebook friends…we regularly read all your posts. Well, if you have any leftover delicious pudding you made in the morning, then serve that too.”

All is well.

We are living  in a world  rushed for time. People hurry and scurry through the day.

What we see in others is a part of us too reflected through them, when we are accepting of that part and able to respect it just as much as ourselves , we create all that we need to see at that moment .

Some very basic humane abilities are necessary in our journey in life.

To listen to understand, to connect, to acknowledge, to emphasize, to sense gratitude, to share happiness, and care for another as much as for ourselves.

Much of the world’s issues may find solace & resolutions in simply caring  to be present in the moment.

In these abilities lies the truth of nature in its magnanimity and abundance in every moment.

And All is truly well.

To being all that one can be!

To changing & evolving for the better

To creating hope & possibilities

To exploring the seemingly impossible

To envisioning the capabilities

For life is best lived in expression

Love it!

The vibrant energy of joyfulness creates a feeling of enthusiasm and wellbeing.

If we can bring it upon ourself to sense joy for what is, we will find it manifests where ever we are, in one way or the other, in more ways than one.

The ability to alter our attitude towards life is directly proportional to the way we experience life.

We are what we think and our behavior is influenced by our perceptions of life and living.

If we wish we can choose to change

The way of thinking and sensing

Life evolves for the better along the way .

The Gifts

In giving is a grace of hopefulness

In receiving is a respect in Gratitude.

In giving is a trust in abundance

In receiving is an acknowledgement.

Every giving and every receiving is a gift of life.

Both are beautiful beyond compare in the grace of the action and response.


To be able to give without wanting
To be able receive without  greed
Makes these gifts meaningful.


Grateful for these gifts of life.

Would you add a word?

Started writing one word

But these three words came to mind.

Serenity

Sensibility

Serendipity

Would you care to leave a positive word?

All A Matter Of Attitude

Positives in Negatives

A young woman was sitting at her dining table, worried about taxes to be paid, house-work to be done and to top it all, her extended family was coming over for festival lunch the next day. She was not feeling very thankful at that time.
As she turned her gaze sideways, she noticed her young daughter scribbling furiously into her notebook.
“My teacher asked us to write a paragraph on “Negative Thanks giving” for homework today,” said the daughter.
“She asked us to write down things that we are thankful for, things that make us feel not so good in the beginning, but turn out to be good after all.”
With curiosity, the mother peeked into the book. This is what her daughter wrote:
“I’m thankful for Final Exams, because that means school is almost over.
I’m thankful for bad-tasting medicine, because it helps me feel better.
I’m thankful for waking up to alarm clocks, because it means I’m still alive.”

It then dawned on the mother, that she had a lot of things to be thankful for!
She thought again…
She had to pay taxes but that meant she was fortunate to be employed.
She had house-work to do but that meant she had a shelter to live in.
She had to cook for her many family members for lunch but that meant she had a family with whom she could celebrate.

We generally complain about the negative things in life but we fail to look at the positive side of it.
Yes there is a positive in every negative .
What is the positive in your negatives? Look at the better part of life today and make everyday a great day.

Good Day 🌻
Be safe😷
