A Matter of Attitude

Between the ‘will do’ and the ‘might do’

With a ‘will do’ attitude
A lot can happen
With a ‘might do’ attitude
Lies the difference
Between the done thing
And the may be done.

Perhaps it is the certainty
That emnates from confidence.
That makes things happen
It is all, in the way
You perceive as you project.

Keep the faith going strong
For people trust your words
Your belief in yourself
Shows, in the way you carry your self

Attitude makes all the difference
Life will evolve for the better
Until then, what truly matters
Is your positive attitude!

Life and living




The Isha Upanishad (ईशोपनिषद्, ‘īśopaniṣad’) is one of the shortest of the Upanishads, in form more like a brief poem than a philosophical treatise, consisting of 17 or 18 verses in total. The Upanishad constitutes the final chapter (adhyāya) of the Shukla Yajurveda and survives in two versions, called Kanva (VSK) and Madhyandina (VSM).

The Isha Upanishad is significant for its description of the nature of the “Supreme Being”, exhibiting monism or a form of monotheism, referred to as Isha “Lord”. It describes this being as “unembodied, omniscient, beyond reproach, without veins, pure and uncontaminated” (verse 8), one who “moves and does not move’, who is ‘far away, but very near as well'” and who “although fixed in abode is swifter than the mind” (verses 4 & 5).

The first verse of the text has been cited as of particular importance to Vedanta or to Hinduism as a whole.

The first verse reads:

īśā vāsyam idaṃ sarvaṃ ¦ yat kiñca jagatyāṃ jagat |
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā ¦ mā gṛdhaḥ kasya sviddhanam ||

literal translation (Ralph T.H. Griffith, 1899):

“Enveloped by the Lord must be This All — each thing that moves on earth.
With that renounced enjoy thyself. Covet no wealth of anyone

Simply  profound verses.

All The Truths of  living  life in this ephemeral world  is contained  in those lines.


Sharing a few more musings by my mother on the same lines.

Whatever is available to you in this world, learn to enjoy without the feeling of possession.

You are one among the many in line. Take care while it is with you without owning it.

Boomerang Effect



Love boomerangs
It is the very nature of love.
For love generates more love
In the sharing is creating
In the creation is the spreading
Of this heartfelt expansion called love.

Love is meant to flow
For life to be sustained.
Love flows its course
In its own time.
Such is the power of love
Love when channeled
In goodwill transforms the world.

In this love, life is lived
In this love writers write
Dancers dance,  artists  create
Poetry flows, Singers sing
All in the resonance of love.

Love envelopes the whole spirit
Without fear or favor
For love boomerangs
Such is nature of love.
Sweet Love!💙💜💙

Channelling life.

Create no space for hatred
Have no wish for revenge
Choose to not be filled with vengeance
Channel thoughts away from anger

Have no room for haste.
Accept patience as your friend
Be mindful, be peaceful, be grateful
And all is well.

Words

Words are mere words
Until we take it upon ourselves
To find its meaning and relevance
Sometimes words leave imprints
Forever embedded in our hearts.
At times they feel shallow
Or, they even feel dense.

Words are mere words
Letters strung together
Picked by choice for expression
They may come through us
May be not necessarily from us.

Perhaps there is a power
That helps the words align
That creates a string of words
That touches the spirit of the soul.

Words find their own way
To arrive at an existence.
But for words to fulfill
Their purpose of creation
They have a journey that unfolds.

Words said or written in goodwill
Need to be sensed, to impact.
They need to be revived
By our heart & mind
In response than reaction
That is when words can help
To make a positive difference.

Else words will stay
Where they are
Unexplored, unknown
Unseen and unread
Unsaid and unwritten
For words are mere words.

On Trust



On Trustfulness

The Way of the Universe is Abundance
It is the way of nature.
We come from it and we are nature.
Our deepest intentions
Find its way to fulfillment in time.

What is important is trustfulness
In faith of the flow
In belief and hope
For as you ensivision
The truth manifests itself.

Stay patient
Trust life
To unravel itself
And deliver in time.

Your Circle




Who you are becoming

Has much to do with

Who you are being with.

You are bit of all

In between  the Influences

And betwixt the Confluences

Of all the people you meet & interact.




You create yourself 

Carving patterns of your life

With these experiences.

Negate not those who teach you

For learning comes

From all quarters.





Think of  your circle of  life

Pay heed to your circle

Keep it healthy & contribute with grace

Watch it closely and imbibe the good.

Make amends if needed

Rally in strength & power of the circle.

Understand your space in the circle

Choose you circle well!

Do more

Reach a  little  beyond
Extend a little  more
Move a little  more
Add one more step



As you reach a bit more
Your vision expands
Your understanding improves
Looking back, notice lessons learned



Step up and walk some more
Reach out to help someone
Do more than you think possible
Be generous & grateful,without regrets.


Touch a life,leave a kind word.
Reach out a helping hand,
Extend a heartfelt prayer for another
Share a smile & go make someone’s day!

A matter of tuning…


When sounds begin too feel like music
Life takes on a new meaning.

Breathing into the songs of soul

All is a matter of fine tuning
Music makes my spirit come alive
Melodies can make me sing along
Rhythms can make my heart dance
The beats can  get my feet moving…

What about you?
How do you relate with music?
Do you have a favorite  type of music?
What is the music of your soul like?

Unshackled Souls



Cage not the heart

Of those who dream of the yonder

Beyond the clouds, over the hills

Far across the horizon their soul

belongs.

Take what you need

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.

Seek the Serenity



Seek the Serenity in the Silence

Care to tune in
Listen to the intuitive
The meditative, contemplative
The reflective & the restorative voices
There is a connective wisdom
In the sounds of silence
Emanating from you.
It is your precious inner self
Expressing itself.
Be mindful and attentive
Listen if you can,
Every once in a while.”
Embody the peace within.
Seek the Serenity  in the Silence

Waves



The way of the Waves
Nature teaches us in every way
We learn the way of being…


One of the biggest learning
From the waves is knowing 
How to let yourself go…


Being free of baggage
And accumulation.
Not withholding.




In learning to let go
You find yourself at ease

In the lightness of being.
