What would you teach the child of tommorow?

What would you teach the child of tommorow?

Teach tommorows child
To co exist and co habit
To know that none can be an island for too long
Teach ability to adapt and not just tolerance
Teach them how to cope with lifes changes

Teach them gratitude and thankfulness
Teach them to maintain dignity of being
That life is to be valued and respected
Teach them value of empathy and love
Teach them compassion and kindness as a way of life.

Teach them humility is not demeaning
Teach them honour and integrity
Teach them resource management and
Teach them to share & sustain the world.

Teach them the art of self management
The world is increasingly self absorbed
Teach them manners to be social and civil.
For beyond the gadgets and convenience of modern living that help us thrive
There is a human out there who needs to survive.

Respect life!

Treat not another without respect or value…

Life must not violate life!

Treat not another by denial of freedom

of choice and expression.

They have a right to live fully alive to this now!

Treat not another as not needing any activity,identity or worth having a purpose of their own!

Everyone has unique potential!

Treat not another as if you can write them off.

Remember then that you are equally dispensable!

And we are only mortal!

Treat not another as a tool for self-gratification

They are human too!

Treat not another as if you own them.

As a parent or a spouse or an employee, remember everyone has their own path.

Much happens in the world today in the guise of ambiguity…

Hidden agendas, facades that choose to mask the truth,

The lies and deceit of power, throwing a veil over what truly matters.

Such is the truth of the illusions in the making …

Seek clarity and demand transparency

in words and deeds

That will create a new morrow in faith and trust

Towards a better world.

Raise a voice towards justice!

Freedom of expression & equality is a birthright!

You are born with it!

Beautiful Soul

Beautiful soul

Where art thou?

Hidden amidst

Illusions in the reflections

Mirroring through the dimensions

Magnitude of your brilliance.

Beautiful soul

Thou owns the key

To know yourself

Reach beyond your limitations

Trusting your intuitions

Exploring the truth of your potential.

Sense the truth of your being

Reflect in the light of your possibilities

Unfurl the wings and fly free

Your beautiful life awaits!

On Spaces (Part I)

From time immemorial
Existence equaled spaces
Life equated space as a given
All a matter of life and death.

Our history is a witness
Of the story of spaces
Fought for, on and upon
Mauraded or harvested

The mystic and majesty
Lies in the significance of spaces
Spaces breathed and birthed
Spaces nurtured in nature

Spaces in and around us
Breathtaking magnificent
Stark manifestations
Of ground realities

Spaces in time eternal
Spaces bygone
And yet to be encountered
Spaces lived and loved

Spaces taken for granted
Spaces usurped and owned
Spaces pursued and protected
Spaces encroached and freed.

Gratitude to the powers that are
In the spaces between
The two words, two beings or two breaths
Between stillness and movement.

On Spaces (Part 2)

So much for spaces
Gained and lost
Conquered and abdicated
Sensed and enjoyed
Or relinquished in the letting go!

In mindless efforts & attempts at attention one loses track of what truly matters!
Sanity of being and most importantly sensing of life’s moments!

Project 101

Today marks a personal milestone in blogging as I publish my 101st post. I have completed my continuous 100 days of writing on WordPress.

On a lark after a challenge to post a few of my favourite songs for three consecutive days came my way from a fellow blogger and friend Dr Sridhar. I decided to take it up and posted my favourite songs for three days. Then I started thinking if I could manage to post for a week and continued to write . The seven days went smooth and easy and then I upped my goal a little further to see if I could write a post everyday for a month.

I had a few ground rules established in my head . First that this was no competition to complete in pressure but simply an effort to see if I would find an inspiration to write on anything that caught my fancy each day . Second would I have the perseverance to continue and be able to dedicate time towards the effort .
Thirdly I wanted to see if I could keep my readers and audiences interested if I happen to post everyday.
And most of all I wanted to test whether my creative instincts are effected in anyway by habit…
A months regular posting on WordPress got me supercharged to aspire some more. Wp would egg me on with reminders of completing a 30th day streak of posting on WordPress.
It was no surprise that once I reached 30 I wanted to try and reach the 50th day.
Seemed then that I could do it if I was smart enough to manage my writing time around the early hours of the day. And that’s what I did.
No one in my family or friends knew much about this plan, but I was pretty clear how to go about it by then and dedicated a bit of time to writing every morning no matter what.

A few learnings.

Have a goal that seems workable, it is easier to focus.

Persevere… and believe you can work towards it.

Push your goal a step ahead as you reach a level.

Manage your time better, to make it happen

Value your goal and be dedicated.

Your creative sense will begin to work for you all the more…

Believe in your self and be passionate

Trust that you will find the way!

And most of all enjoy the journey as much as the destination.😊

Although I have written on WordPress for a few years now and I would have written and posted perhaps continously as well earlier without my own realisation. This was a task that had a goal and hence it is different to me.

The last few months have been personally challenging in terms of health where I was even admitted to the hospital and I am continuing to battle a condition that might require surgery soon. So basically being unwell literally I use the relatively painfree bits of time in the day, I have in my hands for creative enrichment …be it writing or painting and more.

Blogging through I reached my 50th day of posting. And I knew I couldn’t stop it in my heart . The magic figure of 100 floated in my mind and I was sold to the idea of making it happen.

Today it is the 101st day streak of publishing a post everyday and I truly wonder how I managed it all along with my present condition.

My biggest take back has been the loving support and generous comments from my readers which kept me going .
But other than that was a learning and affirmation that if we really make up our mind , we can beat the odds and find a way to acheive our goal .

Besides that I realised how my reading others blogs and writing every day would bring up some topic to contemplate creatively for the next day. The best part was I never had to try too hard … every post I wrote and shared I enjoyed with all my heart.

Writing gives me a sense of completion.
A feeling of contentment of a job well done. And if its well received it truly makes my day… and my fellow writers this I am pretty sure you would agree as well.

Thank you my dear readers and friends for staying with me right through. It has been an absolute pleasure to share and learn along the way… on what I can gratefully now call Project 101.
Wishing an awesome year 2019 for us all !
God bless all!

Waltz of the birds

Watch this magical murmuration

In divine interconnection

Countless birds in a dance of symphony

Creating patterns in rhythmic harmony.

An enthralling aerial display.

That moves you with its magical sway

Makes you wish and wonder why

These flock of feathers fly this way!

In the swing and the sway
And the rise and fall
The flight of these birds
Interweave a cohesive harmony.
A rare sight both elusive and enigmatic
Orchestrated with brilliance
Perhaps simply waltzing with abandon
Perhaps to ward off the predator
With such seemingly chaotic order
Every dancing heart will delight
In acknowledging with awe
This dance of sychrony!
