A place of stillness
Columns of concrete
Affirming its presence…
An artists work
Creativity is a flow
Artists beyond dimensions
Illusions dances & shifts itself
From real to surreal.
Technology enhances imagination
Giving wings to its flight
Here I have simply used it
To sense its effects by thinking
Which picture strikes you ?
What are your thoughts on it?
Imagination is full of possibilities.
I just did.
Here is the original picture I took in France and enhanced it digitally.
The picture is of this uniquely interesting sculpture by Aurelie Nemours one of the emblematic figures of geometric abstract art..
Situated in Rennes France these columns are called….The 21st Century Alignment. It is a monumental work: 72 gray granite columns, four meters and fifty high, arranged on a concrete rectangle and punctuated by the course of the sun.
What looks like simple blocks of stones, is a modern contemporary art,
they pay homage to the Carnac stones of Breton France the largest collection of megalithic stones erected by Pre-celtic people which are also said to have astronomical connections.
Every horizon once reached
It reveals another
Beckoning at a distance…
Horizon is born of hope
Of the beyond in this now.
Horizon are meant to hope
To aspire to reach beyond
In the yonder across the horizon
Where the sky converges…
Is a matter of knowing
There is always more
Of natures grace.
Such is the abundance
Of unending hope.
Is at its best
In making sense
Of the complexity.
To create clarity.
A countless ideas
May arrive at once.
Bounce them off.
Let your thoughts
In the flow
Allow it to settle
Then make a choice
Pick the ones
That fits in
Work on them
To unclutter somemore
Until it makes perfect sense.
Simplicity is common sense.
In the complexities
Let your creativity
There are few gifts
Of life in the living
Like joy of laughter
Like the happiness of smiles
Like the sharing of loving kindness
Like sensing of gratitude
They add to your life
They heal your being
Body mind and Soul.
The more you have it
And live expressing it
The better the health of your heart.
A good thought
A good deed
A good laugh
And all is well
In the lightness of being.
Sensing my share of these gifts.
A world beyond
A borderless world
In the kindness of being.
Notions & judgments
In fear and confusion
Over man made division.
The beauty of creation
Survives the human frailties.
The world without borders
Is one of awe and intrigue
Of the alluring mystic
Of all pervading consciousness.
Of manifestations beyond compare
Of artistry beyond words
All strewn for us to sense
In the tapestry of life.
Unraveled in interdependence
Such is the true nature of elements
Of Creation at its best!
Love and hope to bridge the divide
Faith and patience to move beyond
Courage and understanding to dare
Peace and passion to create some more
Healing and strength to help yourself
Beauty and freedom to enjoy this now!
Take what you need
But always remember….
Wiser to take that which we feel we really need this moment and maintain the state of positive abundance for others too.
After all there is so much good within all already. So simply take what you really need.

The Power of Your Dreams
Makes the subconscious
A conscious reality.
Dare to dream
Selflessly with all of you!
To create a life
Of beautiful moments!
The way we begin to see the world
Our world shapes itself accordingly
Lets choose to be all that we can be
Cause we can be definitely more
Than what choose to believe…
Lets never feel…
Let care to reach beyond knowing
To consciously expand and align
Our deepest intentions in goodwill.
Lets begin to see the good we have
As well as share that good with others…
Life will begin to become lighter
And we will get wings to fly!
Lets reach our dreams
And create some more…
Remember, all of this can be done
By nobody else but us!
Be all that you can be.
You have it in you
The choice of what to do
You are your own master
You are capable to choose
What you want to do
You need to own who you are
Your passion, your purpose
Your life, your breath
Then you will breathe in peace
As you begin to own your own breath.
Stories telling is an art
Not just the story
But the way you say it
When you say it
How you say it
To whom and why
Stories have much depth
Than what’s apparent to us.
Here is one such story worth a study!😀
Enjoy the humour…
Finest example of presence of mind!.
A Professor started his class on a very serious Topic. The moment he turned towards the blackboard, one of the students whistled. He turned, looked at the class and asked the Whistler’s name. No one answered.
The Professor peacefully kept the Pen in his pocket saying: “Lecture ends here. I’ll tell you a story to utilise the remaining time”.
Everyone became interested.
“Yesterday night I tried hard to sleep, but it was miles away from my eyes, so I thought I’d better get petrol in my car, which will save my time next morning and might induce sleep. After having my tank full, I started roaming in that area, enjoying the peace of a traffic free ride.
Suddenly, on the corner I saw a girl who was as young and beautiful as the clothes she was wearing. Must have been returning from a party. Out of courtesy, I turned my car towards her and asked if I may be of any help. She asked me if I could drop her to her home, she’ll be very obliged, to which I agreed.
She sat in the front seat with me. We started talking, and to my amazement she was very intelligent, had control on many topics which many youngsters don’t.
When we reached her address, she admitted my courteous nature and behavior and accepted that she would love to meet again.
I also admitted her intelligence and beauty and that I’ve also started liking her. I told her about my job as a professor in the university.
The girl asked my number, which I gave her willingly. Then she asked me a favor, to which i couldn’t have denied naturally.
She said that her brother is a student in the same university, and asked me to take care of him, since we’ll meeting each other more now.
I asked the name of the student. She said that I’ll recognise him with one of his very prominent quality, *He whistles a lot!*
All eyes in the classroom turned towards the boy who had whistled.
The professor said: “I didn’t buy my Ph. D in Psychology.. I earned it”.
