Learnings in the listening


I listened  to my heart
Every day
As it shares from within
And I write them out as words
Sometimes as verses
At times it’s measured
In moderation.
Its a zen moment
For there is clarity
In just a few words shared.

Then there are times
They flow like a river
A torrent in a current
Patterning itself
In its own making
Words come through me
As if it needs to be spoken
Sharing the sensitivity
Of the moments at hand.
I listen simply with rapt attention.
For in the slightest flutter
In every movement in the moments
Or the depth of silence.
There is always something more.

Walk in light

Why walk in shadows of dark
When light  is just around the bend.

Walk in light
If you can’t see the light
Find the light in you.

Trust your inner light to show you the way.
Love the light that you actually are!

Imprints of kindness

On Kindness
Kindle the kindness
It’s the springwell of love
For love is limitless
Kindness generates
Heartfelt abundance
From one to another
Creating magic in action
Be it in words thoughts or deeds.

That best portion of a man’s life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.
William Wordsworth

Leave imprints in kindness

Every word you say

Every where you go

Every act you do in kindness

Every tree you plant

Makes a difference

For it is busy saving the world.

Be kind stay kind

It’s possible.

Perception

We are what we believe ourselves to be

Our perceptions make all the difference

To become what you begin to understand.

In the sands of time…

We are ours perceptions,

Illusive yet mattering in existence.

As life and living.

We are reflections in the illusions

As much as illusions in the reflections.

On happiness

Everyone has a different idea of true happiness.

What do you think you need to be truly happy?

Is it love?

Is it hope?

Is it purpose?

Is it inclusion?

Is it health?

Is it material or non material?

I do think happiness is an inside job.

We are responsible for our happiness.

Feel free to share your thoughts on happiness.

Life strings

We are strings of matter
Asserting ourselves in the giant spindle of time.

A string
Is meant to connect
It is also to be a bridge of bonding
Like a string of pearls
To string is to align with a purpose.

We are divinely connected in the subtler realms
To the infinite strings of matter.

Yet in the physical realm
We hold the strings to many
We pull these strings at times too lightly or forcefully
And what was meant to be for alignment ,  instead creates imbalances.

The strings we hold or latch onto
The strings that are passed into our hands
And the strings we want to control
All have a deep significance to the way we  were are,  we are and what our future will be…


Care to acknowledge our stringed existence in the interconnects.
Aspire to untangle the threads yet value the rootedness therein.


Aim to reach beyond the shackles of being
Unlearn to learn
Reach beyond knowing.

Life heals as its aligns and manifests the truth of its own potential.

Power of Water

Power of Water
Gentle yet forceful
Soft yet unstoppable
Focused no matter the fluidity
Carving streams eroding rocks
Strengthened in adaptability
Transformative in the flow.
Harness the power of the flow

A blessing in disguise

On Sensitivity

Every life is unique

And each of us on this planet

Have different personality traits

Our heart and mind is wired

In infinitely different ways.

An acknowledgment of the uniqueness to life

Makes us understand how valuable we each can be.

A little sensitivity goes a long way…

Although people cannot be compartmentalised

There are many ways nature and nurture impacts

Some hardened by life in resilience

Some suppress their emotions

Causing imbalances within

Some sensitive to sense the subtler energies

And Some who wear their heart on their sleeves

Expressing emotions and feelings away…

It can be challenging

For they also hurt easily.

For they sense a flood of emotions

They are often extremely receptive

As well as empathic in their sensing.

And often quick to understand

Perhaps they are blessed with subtlety

Of perception & awareness

With a highly developed intuition

For they are sensitive & emotional beings

They are who they are as they are.

Sensitivity can be blessing in disguise

Yet Sensitivity makes us humane

In the way we relate with the world

The planet needs sensitive souls

Who care a little more

Who sense and feel in empathic ways.

Let’s never discount this gift & virtue

In these sensitive souls.

For how we sense and feel

Affects what path and actions we choose to take.

And the world around is but a reflection of who we are

We are…

We are

Sprinkling of star dust

Sparkling from we are

We are meant to shine our light

In this beautiful world

For we are made of stars!

Healing is in letting go

On Letting go

If you are feeling upset

Let time pass

Hurts will heal again

If you are angry

Let there be pauses

Anger will recede in the silence

If you are defeated

Let yourself know

That the world is a circle

The night breaks into a new dawn

With promises of a blessed new day!

So stay patient in perseverance

And know every phase has a reason to be

Learn to forgive and let go

And as all is meant to be well once again.

Writing is often a very cathartic experience.

Sometimes people unknowningly say things that hurt or upset another.

Today was one of those days. I chanced upon one of my old poems on letting go in forgiveness and it made much sense. I was able to move beyond simply by acknowledging the truth in those verses.

I simply had to share…

A Great Share

Ever Grateful  for a powerful caption that once caught my eye

“Don’t bite more than you can chew….”


Denotes the wisdom of  moderation in life and living. To know a cut off point
Is to know where to draw the line between  exhaustion  and excitement.

Simply taking on more work or responsibility  or trying  to multitasking beyond  your abilities and capacities is self defeating.
So only commit to what you truly can deliver .
Not less not more.
So grateful to have read this many years ago and  consistently  practice this learning. 
Happy to share this piece of advice that is my mindful reminder before taking on more.

Be happy

How important is it to be happy to you?

How do you find happiness?

How important is it to choose the people you want spend your life with?

Can you be happy with someone only you love?

Or can you be happy with someone who loves you more than you?

It’s a choice that rests with you, as to what you choose to do.

Stay on hoping they will love you back someday, someway

Or choose to work on yourself and become a happy person.

It’s all within you!

And you can choose to be happy.

Acknowledge

Acknowledge…
Betwixt and between
The you & I,
The us and the we,
Is a ocean of multiverses.
A tapestry of metaverses  Springing into existence
Creating connection
Beyond compare
Ingenious innovation
Reaching beyond the known
Forging ahead dimensions
Unfolding technology
With palpable sensations
Creating new possibilities
Exploring potential
Understanding elements
Of space, time and distance
Challenging norms
Quantifying needs & wants
Finding solutions
In a changing world
Simplifying complexities
In the realms of life & living.

Unique pathways

We are uniquely ordained by nature yet so very interconnected that we can find versions of ourselves time and time again as reflections in the resonance.

For what we see in another is a reflection of our own lives, that is unique yet self similar in manifestations .

We all duel and pass through these reflections in our lives at different times in our own special ways.

Every life has its own reason to be. A purpose of being. Every life has its own story Every life unfolds in its own way.

The Power of the Heart

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.
Mahatma Gandhi

The Power of the Heart

What is your kind of power?

Power of Influence

Where your charisma

And your words and behavior

Hold them in sway

And allows you to lead

Or is it Dominance

Where your overt assertion

Makes you take charge

Wherever you are

Do you lead with your heart

Or is it all about the mind

The way you weild your power

Speaks much of you as a person

Are you powerful enough

To let love be felt & expressed

To have patience in waiting

To listen keen to what’s unsaid

To know that being gentle is strength.

Always remember the path of the heart

Is far powerful than the mind.

For its far expansive it knows the way.
