Envisioning Beyond Labels



In every experience there is always learning
To move beyond the apparent
Every concept is potential  in possibilities
Such is life and creativity
It is the way of nature in abundance…


To be able to see the bigger picture
To see beyond the niggling bits
And envision the larger good
Is the need of the hour. 


So much of time, earth has borne
The onslaught of man and his needs
But its time to think beyond the self
And move beyond  being bound by labels.


Find ways together and seek
Solutions than problems.
For truly we are so much more
Than the way we label ourselves…

LETS MOVE BEYOND LABELS
& KNOW THE POWER OF OUR BEING.

Take A Step





Take a Step..

To start is is most difficult
The first step is often a challenge
And then some more
Follows through
And suddenly it appears
A pathway
A breakthrough
A perspective to aspire
And a renewed focus develops
Towards a goal.


So take the step
The first step
Start even if its a single step
Keep it simple
And in no time
You will have started on a journey
Towards your purpose of being.


After all
Success too is a series of steps
That starts with taking a step.

On Adapting


Every time you find yourself
In a bit of a tussle
You need to adapt to the situation

A little bit of flexibility
Goes a long way
Where you bend but do not break.


Like the reed of grass
That bows down with grace
In the wind of changes.

Like water that flows to fit in
Until it shapes unto & settles itself
Like a lithe cat that braces itself in a fall.


This ability  to turn adversity
On its toes and dance with it
Is a valuable  lifeskill.

This quality of adaptability
The way you adapt, adjust or modify
Says much about you as a person.


It speaks of your capacity
To be receptive to new ideas
And new ways of thinking

To step out of the box.
And perceive with fresh eyes.
Without prejudice.

To understand what is feasible
To be willing to respond  than react
To the changes, in flexibility.



And the ability to be non judgmental
Speaks of your unflappable nature.

In responding with composure.

Adaptability is a necessary skill
To overcome any situation in life
To adapt is to survive.

Beyond the looking



What truly makes a difference
Is the way we see things
The way we envision it


What matters is apparent
And yet at times hidden
In the veils of Illusions


When you truly want to see
There is a certain  clarity in things
Truth emerges in attention.


There is more than what appears
There is always a learning
In envisioning beyond the  looking.

Power of Faith





Behind the smile is the hidden strength

Behind the gentleness is steel in spirit.

The spirit is strengthened in the living.

In depth of  love comes the strength

In loving deeply is the courage to dare

Against all odds.

Such is the might of the warrior  within…

Inner faith can move mountains.

Horizon Of Hope



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.

Exploring Interconnects

A lot of times Efficacy and Effectiveness are interchangeably used while speaking….

It is interesting to delve into the interconnects between these two words.

Efficacy is about a structured metric.

Efficacy can be situation specific.

Effectiveness is the about capacity to perform.
Effectiveness is effectual result specific.

And Efficacy is the measure of being effective.

What are your thoughts on these two words? Do share.

The Potential of Silence

In The Lightness of being.


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.
Are you?

I see

A world beyond

I see

A borderless world
Overflowing abundance
In the kindness of being.
Beyond assumptions
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.

Interweaved interconnects
Unraveled in interdependence
Such is the true nature of elements
Of Creation at its best!

Sail through life

Sail through life
Steering away from density
Be in the moment.
Live fully.

Rest easy sleep well
Be generous be mindful
Let your moves be wise
Choose well.
Be safe than sorry!

Let your boat of life be light
Burden it not by overloading
For it gets difficult to carry
The weight of your burdens
Be light and sail on
In the lightness of being.

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!

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.

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!

On Constant Anger

Constant anger
Is but a telltale sign
Of never feeling good enough
About things and the self or others.
It is a way of shielding wounds
That simply have yet to heal.
Anger patterns itself
Quickly into unhealthy ways
Of abusing the self & others
Rooted in fear
In feelings of lack
Of love and worth.

A deeply seated emotion
Of feeling love is only conditional
Striving for a need…
A need for perfection
A need for invulnerability
A need to be right all the time
A need to never be wrong
Such a state of mind is exhausting
Families and friends
Pay the price of such a behaviour
Wounding the self and others.

Yes Anger too is a part of you
It comes from you
It is expressing
Itself seeking help
As it feels quite helpless
Though you may support not the anger
But suppress it never!
But try to hear the inner voice
Its saying something perhaps
About fear,hurt, loss & lack of love.

Numbing it down
With food and drinks
Is never the answer
Healing is a journey
In understanding
With empathy
Unearth the roots
By Self supportable
Sustainable ways
To recover from the pain
Once for all.

Reclaim the joy in your life’s journey
U owe it to yourself
For this is your one life
Choose to live it well!
