Two women



Sharing a lovely piece of poetry

Two women, two different roles
The one who gave birth to me
And the one I gave birth to.

One gave all the love she had
The other got all the love I had

One strived in the life chosen for her
The other – for the life she chose

One made sure I didn’t have tears
The other ensured I face my fears

One hears my voice to know if am well
The other can read my face and tell

One had her eyes moist as she saw me go
The other made my eyes moist as I let her go

My past and my future when shall meet
Will be a picture ever so complete
Two women, two different roles

If only I could be a little like them,
The one who gave birth to me,
And the one I gave birth to.

Two women, two different roles.



Can simply say

Love is the bridge…
Betwixt & Between

Live life lovingly!❤

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.

Heart of Love





In the spectrum of emotions
Love and hate are at opposite ends.
Yet often find itself  juxtaposed.

Love flows through
Hate constricts life.
Love is transcendence.
In evolved consciousness.
While hate scars the soul
Love heals and renews the spirit ❤

When love finds its bearings…
It takes wings and charts its course
Patterning itself in the flow
And leaves healing imprints forever
In the river of eternal time.

You have this now
Make it beautifulYou have it all in you…Love your life
Live life lovingly!

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.

On Action

An action that builds confidence is better than inaction which arises from fear.

At times the action is a success, at times , may be the action needs a new direction to be successful but action is better than no action.

The trangression

Recently a reader mentioned he was stymied…
By the following line in one of my previous post
‘Covet not what you cannot share.’

Let me explain..

The very act of coveting
Is yearning to possess
That which does not belong
Act of possession is not love

True love is about freedom
Every person has both
Freedom and limitations Such is the law of nature.

When man unknowingly
Or knowingly covets beyond
Nature is displaced and broken
Then energies shift

And all hell breaks loose
Every word spoken or written
Can effect someone somewhere
So important to know
And discern with care
Else all the wisdom of life
Becomes meaningless.

Living your truths is fine
As long as you don’t impinge others
As long as you respect life
Around you to have theirs.
Share your truths if you wish
But do not share what is not yours.

For that is an act of trangression
A violation of natures
Code of conduct!

The Potential of Silence

Looking through…

What lens are you looking through…

Are you
Wearing lens of compassion
Having the lens of humour
Cleaning the lens for clarity.

Invoking the lens of intelligence
Expressing through the lens of emotion
Respecting the lens of honour.

Are you Looking through…

The lens of wisdom
Or of ignorance?

The lens simply magnifies

What you see…

For thats what its meant to do!

Its all in what you are looking through…

All is in the envisioning!

On caring…





Life and living  can be both beautiful  and challenging beyond compare…

Touched by these heartfelt  words I came across so much that I just had to share..






“Take me out to the street, son, I still have good legs. If I walk with you, I won’t feel old …
Invite me to your home, son, Sunday morning; to share your good table and feel accompanied …
Talk to me with love, son, don’t challenge me or shake me; we old people are like children we like to be pampered, to smile without discomfort …
Celebrate my birthdays, don’t criticize my follies; I’ll try to be brave, even if bitterness arises …
Don’t push me away from you, don’t talk to me in anger; I still have my mind clear, the memories of the past …
Come visit me at home, my son, I will not ask you for anything; just your presence and contemplate your face …
Don’t leave me sad and alone, don’t put me to bed; the doctors are wrong, the pain is in the soul … ”






On Caring…

Care to give of yourself
Someday you may need it too!


Age is no bar
To create a value
For age is just a number.

Experience of living, matters.


Treat life with care
For life comes a full circle.



Life can at times be lonely
Make time to be present
In the life of those  who need you.


Just a bit of your time
A kind word or deed
Will make all the difference.




Express kindness
Your near and dear ones
Need to sense it.
Show empathy
Share the love.

Live life lovingly!




Love life
Intend well
To manifest
Your true potential in time.
It is the way of creation
You are a precious manifestation
Of this universe.

Trust the living you
Keep the faith
For without faith nothing is
Believe you can
For you are enough for you!

“Time moves on endlessly
In every moment  that moves into the  other
Care to keep the cheer and flow in faith seamlessly.”

Live life lovingly!

Simplicity of Complexity




Creativity
Is at its best
In making sense
Of the complexity.

Think simple
To create clarity.
A countless ideas
May arrive at once.
Bounce them off.

Let your thoughts
Streamline itself
In the flow
Allow it to settle

Then make a choice
Pay attention
Pick the ones
That fits in

Work on them
To unclutter somemore
Until it makes perfect sense.
Simplicity is common sense.


Simplicity  resides
In the complexities

Let your creativity
Simplify life.

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?
