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.

Carpe diem

So many solar cycles wiser
If you have survived so far
What makes you think
Any less of yourself?

From heartbreaking moments
To unexpected challenges
You have survived it all.
Let the moment unfold

Sense the spirit of life within
Hope is here to stay!
Make the most of this moment of now
Make a choice to seize the day!
Carpe diem!

Carpe diem…. Seize the day!

Two sides

Interestingly…

I came across both these images almost in the span of a single day!

Like the mirror has two faces

Everything that is , is not all

There are two sides

To everything

That exists…

What I pay attention

Grows with conviction

What I wish to disown

Diminishes to perish.

As this tree of life

Is taking roots

Growing branches

And shaping itself…

Yet the Choice

What to feed

And what to starve

The fate and future

Of two sides of my life

Solely rests with me.

The Dance of Cownose Rays





Dancing in the Dark 😍 with a fever of cownose rays swimming ...

Is it fluidity of the flow or form

That makes them move

With grace and elegance.

This dance of the cow nose rays

Captivates the senses in awe & wonder.

Here is a beautiful link to their amazing dance

Nature knows it best!

A few random photographs I clicked  somehow found a connect through  these reflections…


 

 

Envision the beauty of alignment
Like when the bloom centers itself!

 

Like this leaf that presents a backdrop!

At the right place and time
Creating visual harmony!

Like life shaping itself in Synchrony!

Like life evolving into a perfect pattern
Exuding a sense of synchrony.

Art knows better

abstract art artist artistic

Art feels complete for the artist
When there is a contentment
From within that this is enough!
And that the expression is fulfilled

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

While the artists feels contentment
For the viewer, it is a beginning
Of endless possibilities
For each thinking is unique

art artistic bright color

Juxtaposed between the artist and the admirer
Is the art which is created
Out of a thought and intention
In colours and hues
In texture and design
Unparalleled in its very uniqueness

Awaiting another interpretation
Another contemplation
Sharing inspiration for more creativity
Sharing perspectives in the envisioning

photo of acrylic paint

Art knows better,
To simply be as it evokes emotions
In its journey to fulfill itself
And that is how it completes itself.

Happy Fathers Day! God Bless Dads!

This is one of those moments when writing and sharing stories from our lives bring us a deep sense of connection… with our readers and ourselves in gratitude for the learnings. And there is that sense of magic sensed in our hearts which evokes poignant feeling of fond memories of the people that are attached to it.

CALM

Calm is a state of mind not easy for many, especially in these times of confusion and chaos.

To put things in perspective in spite of uncertainty calls for a whole lot of balance in the way we sense whatever we are witnessing.

To be calm as a way of being we need to envision beyond our limited self. When we put our problems in the larger canvas of life we begin to see our niggling problems differently. In fact, many of them disappear for we cannot justify their existence ourselves in the larger scheme of things. We let them go.

To soothe ourselves into a space of calm we will need to change our demands on ourselves for a start. This need for perfection that exceeds the normal has to be sorted as it can drain us and our resources in trying to match up so much that it puts us in a constant state of tension. Calm is about cultivating an attitude of forgiveness not only others but for oneself. So best is to excuse oneself from overt perfectionism.

Ease the self

To a state of calm

Allow thoughts to settle

Like the dust in the wind.

All fall in place in time.

Choose calm to beat chaos.

Beyond the Illusions



What is, may not be
What you see, can be an illusion
The truth may be far from it.
All that you see, is not all.

What is all, is not what you see
Illusions of your mind can play tricks.
Beyond your preconceived beliefs
And judgments of perception.

There is a lot more than what we are
Our vision can play tricks.
So watch what you see, up close
And perhaps, you will see more…

Lets together, see if what I have tried depicting through my painting has reached you. Or better still you may have your own interpretation, which would be interesting to read.

A Message of Gratitude.

A Message of Gratitude.

5 years on Word press
A mighty task for me
To stay on, dedicated
To my writings.
But WordPress gives the canvas
To paint my words every day.
It encourages from the background.
Never in your face or intrusive.
But silently keeping tabs,
On every learning curve.
Rejoicing by a share
On every milestone
It has been a journey
Of many learnings
Along the way…

To my fellow writers & readers
Yes, I am no poet
Nor a writer by profession
I started on a lark
To dance with some words
To process my own thoughts
And give vent to my feelings
In a constructive and fulfilling way
And express I did
And continue to do, till date
With all my fellow writers
And readers, love, wishes & support.

We are an ever growing circle
Emerging through our words
In the sharing we have grown
We have eased into each other’s hearts
We may not see one another ever
But we have connected in mutual respect
Of each others creativity.
Though the power of words
Comforted and understood
Accepted and appreciated
One another in our own little ways.
For we all know the power of words
That, one heartfelt word can change a day!

Thank you all for being here and hoping for a joyful journey ahead together for us all.🙏🏼

The Unfurling

Unfurling its petals. Photograph by Savvy Raj



Allow nature to recover

To unfurl it’s own way in time

Have patience for it is wise.

Its wisdom is rooted in creation

Let it regenerate as it is meant to.


Nature knows not favour nor hatred

Nature follows it’s own laws

What goes comes around

Every life has a purpose

Let life unfurl itself

For it’s meant to bloom

All of You!

‘Precious Soul’ Artwork by Savvy Raj

Your smile is your soul signature
Your voice is the vibration of your energy
Your speech is a channel of communication
Your intention is the story of your purpose.
Your eyes are the window of your soul
Your heart is the expression of your being
Your steps are the path you create
Your actions are the enabler of deeds
Your body is the lighthouse
Your spirit is light.

You are precious.

All of you!

Its all connected!

It’s all connected!

So much vibrations in this now
That is was and will be playing
As the dance of light and frequency
In the eternal river of time.

Momentous fields of matter
Cosmic rhythms of color at play
Vivid manifestation of vastness
Of potential in the abundance

So much to understand & discover
The truth of the moment
Is connected to it all
Such is the truth of nature in sublimity.

Whose work is it anyway?

Bored?
What boredom, no time for boredom!
says my seemingly exasperated friend in India on the phone.
With the complete lockdown and most on’ Work from home status ‘majority of families are struggling to cope with rising demands of the family be it the seniors at home, children and of course pets as well. The families are now suddenly having no house help, the quintessence of urban class living.

Compared to the Western world in India still, the lure of cheaper labor force makes a household helper available to all. But in the current scare, there are no maids, let alone cooks or gardeners. Except for those who may have a live-in helper which is not often the case.

Suddenly the ‘Work from home’ status actually registers the truth. For it is truly challenging for most families who have never bothered to make their own bed or do dishes or cook ever. In fact, there are many who wait for someone else to make their tea or coffee or get a glass of water.

In these hard-pressed times the major part of the work comes to the women of the household still, in spite of all those talks of women’s liberation that goes on doing the rounds every year around early March.

To all the women, who have suddenly vowed to prove themselves superwoman please take it easy.
A little dirty corner, neglected kitchen shelves, not a four course meal, everything is acceptable. But not at the cost of your own health. Remember your falling sick at these times will be disastrous especially if there is no one to take over from you !!
Stay safe

The women are left with no options as the demands keep on rising as those who are at home are hungrier than ever with time to kill.

There are, of course, some of those evolved households where all are contributing their bit. The onus of responsibility needs to be shared, else it will make every day a living hell.

If only more young parents of today teach all their children both sons and daughters equally to cook, clean and do housework as a part of life skills training so that they also know how to manage a home when they have one, the lives of so many future families will be truly much easier.

As we see it, the future is here with new challenges and unless we are all equipped with basic survival skills and takes into account, ownership, responsibility, and teamwork and move beyond gender biases, it is truly tough to live through times like these.

How are you and your families managing this interim period?

Stay safe and healthy!
