Hope is here to stay!

Covid has come
Covid will go
Herd immunity
Now at play
Will leave
With markings
Of a common flu


And yet the waves
Will leave us
Imprints of Resilience
In the cells of our being
Progressively in time
But speaking of the future
If we are able to see
Beyond the nightmare
Of the past


There is a shift
In the way of life
Of the way of living
At work & at play
The impacted have wisened
Earlier than others
But there is an awareness
No less in the rethinking
Of  the workplace that works
From physical  to hybrid.


Exploring possibilities
With our virtual connections
With precious commute time saved
Families  have sensed the togetherness
Experienced the pros & cons of wfh
Yet work has continued
Buisness collapsed yet many revived
Reinventing  the ways of work


A sense of knowing  prevails
All is not lost
For technology  has come in aid
Of mankind at its hour of need
A semblance  of normalcy regained
But with a redesigned version
Of what is the new normal
Organization  operates
Repattererned in the sensing
Of what is redundant
And what actually works!
Hope is here to stay…

IN THIS NOW

There is always a reason

We know not yet

Trust life to deliver

Know life is a puzzle

Every piece fits perfectly eventually

Keep your faith alive

And celebrate the life you have

In this now

Magic of New Beginnings…

One of my favorite quotes:

“Tomorrow I’ll think of some way… after all, tomorrow is another day.

Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind

This post is a dedication to a hopeful spirit.

No matter the calamities

No matter the challenges that come along…

In moments of deep despair

Know there is light around the corner

When the night turns dark

Know the dawn awaits full of light

Keep the faith & trust there is always more

In the infinite abundance

When one door closes

Another opens they say!

Keep the hope alive in your heart

And trust the magic of new beginnings💙

Life

Bloom!

Give life everything you’ve got, and life will give its best back to you.

Trust life to deliver

Everything at the right moment

But most of all

Believe in your life

Believe in yourself!

Align in the Flow


Speaking of opposites at play
Between the expansion and contractions.. Between the conflicts and clarity

The dance of the heart and mind goes on
Only to meet somewhere midway in peace
And adjusts itself in the circle of life.

After all there is a place and space
For every manifestation
Somehow everything aligns in the flow

Partner with peace

Value of power of peace within you…

Today in this moment
Are you ready 
To partner with peace
Do you have the power
Of a grateful  heart
That knows to live light
And waltz in harmony with life!

A love like that!

Sharing thoughts close to my heart…

On Love

Realizing the many miracles of life is also in knowing love that can move the soul of our being. We can consider ourselves lucky to even have been touched by a love like that!”

Art of Self Removal

Throwback to last week when I recorded a demo and forgot about it 

Shown here is one of the riskiest parts of the process — removing myself from the fragile balance without disturbing it.

In order to balance something like this, I usually need to basically wrap my body around it while sitting and building.. using knees to hug / stabilize the lower section(s) like a scaffold. But once I find zero, I need to remove my body without causing the structure to collapse.. on my body.. it’s when I’m most vulnerable.

But as seen here, I keep my gaze firmly on the structure while maneuvering my body away. It’s like a weird hyper focus where I’m spatially entranced on the relative positions of the rocks, and if any data point deviates from the whole, I have maybe a second to react before it becomes dangerous, especially for my left hand here which is planted on the stump I was sitting on, hoisting my body away.. if that top decides to fall on that hand, bones would likely break… not a situation where I can afford to break focus.

Some self removals are easier than others — it really just depends on a firm hold for my right hand behind me, the sensitivity of the structure itself, and what the wind is doing..

This post made me think further on

The Art of Self Removal

In any creation

The creator is inextricably

Interweaved in the tapestry of creation

And yet the Creator detaches the self

To step away from the creation

Distinguishing the completion

Of one phase of the creation

For it to begin it’s own journey of being

Real joy!

This is a must read true incident share…

“I want to remember your face so that when I meet you in heaven, I will be able to recognise you and thank you once again.”

When Nigerian billionaire Femi Otedola in a telephone interview, was asked by the radio presenter, “Sir what can you remember made you a happiest man in life?”

Femi said:
“I have gone through four stages of happiness in life and finally I understood the meaning of true happiness.”

The first stage was to accumulate wealth and means. But at this stage I did not get the happiness I wanted.

Then came the second stage of collecting valuables and items. But I realised that the effect of this thing is also temporary and the lustre of valuable things does not last long.

Then came the third stage of getting big projects. That was when I was holding 95% of diesel supply in Nigeria and Africa. I was also the largest vessel owner in Africa and Asia. But even here I did not get the happiness I had imagined.

The fourth stage was the time a friend of mine asked me to buy wheelchair for some disabled children. Just about 200 kids.

At the friend’s request, I immediately bought the wheelchairs.

But the friend insisted that I go with him and hand over the wheelchairs to the children. I got ready and went with him.

There I gave these wheel chairs to these children with my own hands. I saw the strange glow of happiness on the faces of these children. I saw them all sitting on the wheelchairs, moving around and having fun.

It was as if they had arrived at a picnic spot where they are sharing a jackpot winning.

I felt REAL joy inside me. When I decided to leave one of the kids grabbed my legs. I tried to free my legs gently but the child stared at my face and held my legs tightly.

I bent down and asked the child: Do you need something else?

The answer this child gave me not only made me happy but also changed my attitude to life completely. This child said:
“I want to remember your face so that when I meet you in heaven, I will be able to recognise you and thank you once again.”

What would you be remembered for after you leave that office or place?

Will anyone desire to see your face again where it all matters?

How about trying to touch lives and make a positive difference in our own individual ways?.

Artistry



To a true artist
The medium is immaterial
Everything  is association
The elements converge
Every thing connects
Subtlety emerges distinctly
Dancing to the winds of change

Inner motivation leads the way
To find meaningful expressions
In the myriad manifestations
Even in the seemingly banal existence
Creativity sparks from everywhere.
Such is state of fractal flow
Of Art & Artistry.

But then is there a true or fake artist?
For beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
And possibilities of creativity infinite
Art is a moment of reckoning
Of acknowledgement and appreciation
Evoking critical responses & feedbacks
In support or diversity of emotions
Forming  new patterns in the experiences
Invoking the spirit of creation
Once more…

Every now has new learnings.

The trick is to be present in this moment

To understand the evolving perspectives

To be one with the changes that manifests

Be present Be adaptable Be receptive!
