The Beginners Mindset

Begin the day

With enthusiasm for learning

And hope to discover some more

Unlock the possibilities

Of your mind

Adapt your ways

To learn from the challenges

Experience the world

Be open to perspectives

Learn and reflect

Give generously

Share to learn some more.

That way you create space

For you to grow

Heart of Peace

Cultivating inner peace

Begins with the awareness

Of your own breath

Just for a moment

Take a pause and reflect

On the inhaled breath

You cannot hold it much longer

You have to let it go

Likewise to this

Think of all the conflicts

Of the storms raging within you

Think of burdens weighing you down

How long do you choose to carry them.

You have to let it go, one day or another

Why not now, and live free

Sensing the lightness of being.

You have One life one heart.

Choose to live life with heartfelt peace.

All is well.

We are living  in a world  rushed for time. People hurry and scurry through the day.

What we see in others is a part of us too reflected through them, when we are accepting of that part and able to respect it just as much as ourselves , we create all that we need to see at that moment .

Some very basic humane abilities are necessary in our journey in life.

To listen to understand, to connect, to acknowledge, to emphasize, to sense gratitude, to share happiness, and care for another as much as for ourselves.

Much of the world’s issues may find solace & resolutions in simply caring  to be present in the moment.

In these abilities lies the truth of nature in its magnanimity and abundance in every moment.

And All is truly well.

Take what you need!

Take what you need…

Love and hope to bridge the divide
Faith and patience to move beyond
Courage and understanding to dare
Peace and passion to create some more
Healing and strength to help yourself
Beauty and freedom to enjoy this now!
Take what you need
But always remember…
Wiser to take that which we feel we really need this moment and maintain the state of positive abundance for others too.
After all there is so much good within all already!
So simply take what you really need.

Flow…

Sharing one from my series of Circular Artworks painting today and a very powerful poem by Rumi.

I feel somehow it connects with this poem…

Flow : Textured Artwork by Savvy Raj

“There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.

Drink all your passion and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes to see with the other eye.
Open your hands if you want to be held.

Consider what you have been doing.
Why do you stay
with such a mean-spirited and dangerous partner?

For the security of having food. Admit it.
Here is a better arrangement.
Give up this life, and get a hundred new lives.

Sit down in this circle.

Quit acting like a wolf,
and feel the shepherd’s love filling you.

At night, your beloved wanders.
Do not take painkillers.

Tonight, no consolations.
And do not eat.

Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover’s mouth in yours.

You moan, But she left me. He left me.
Twenty more will come.

Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought.

Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.

Flow down and down
in always widening rings of being.”
– Rumi

Feels just right!

Life is like a never ending puzzle

And it seems all caught in a maze

Just as much as…

There comes a time when

Life finds itself

And feels just right!

Reach beyond knowing

Have always fancied the flight of birds
Dancing with the winds soaring the skies.
To far off lands & destination unknown.
With th  spirit and soul free

And yet…

What has mere wings got to do with flying?
To most it would seem everything
For without wings there is no flight
But then to truly fly is to reach beyond.
Free of being bound!

Beyond knowing  is imagination
Imagination is a journey without wings
For with your thoughts you fly free
And tirelessly  into infinity
For wings may sense the weight of the journey
But heartfelt intention can take you afar
As far as you aim to go
Across dimensions of space & time.
Exploring  possibilities and more.

So it’s not what you have
But what you do with what you have
It’s all in your passionate will & intention
What you  choose to accomplish in time

On living life lovingly…

Life life Lovingly!

Someone asked me what advice would I share with my child…

I would simply share the below two pieces of advice that I came across, not only with my child, but to anyone who cares to follow.

As it will go a long way in the journey of life .

Two simple
formula of life

“Don’t make any
close relation
without full understanding…!

And don’t break
any close relation
with small misunderstanding..

Very thoughtfully said!

Life is beautiful in consideration & responses than kneejerk reactions.

Life is all about taking time to live and love but also to understand.

Life is precious and every relationship has a reason to be. Even if it’s just for a season it is meant to last its time.

Let’s never forget that…

So let’s value life, value relationships

And live life lovingly!!

Mystique of Creation

In the vividness  of imagination
At  times there is a turbulence  of thoughts.
Of emotions entwined in the sensing.
Moving beyond, patterns forming…


Inspiration & ingenuity births itself
In the very uniqueness of individuality
Yet the source of creativity is infinity
Such is the divine mystic of creation.

Sky Above, Earth Below & Fire Within

Like the sky above…

Be expansive

Unfurl your imagination

Extend yourself, reach beyond knowing

Life the earth below…

Be connected

Yet stay rooted to the ground

Have the steadfastness like the earth.

Like the fire within

Be spirited

Let your passion speak

Explore life & give it your all.

A Matter Of Thought

They say it’s what you do that matters

But it’s the thought that counts

Can we choose one thought over other

Yes we can in mindfulness

Being aware is the first step

The choice rests with you

For you are your thoughts

As much as your deeds .

The Way

When we care to truly listen

We can hear our soul’s calling.

In the journey of life

Every one of us

Has a unique pathway

That is our reason to be

That makes us feel fulfillment

That speaks to us with all of our heart

That makes us see the signs

How far would you go

To find your pathway?

The Journey of Creativity

Photo by Rakicevic Nenad on Pexels.com

If Creativity were to be all yang

Flowing along in infinite abundance

The mystic of this mistress is magnetic

Almost hovering on the hypnotic

And yet…

Creativity is a dance of balance

Of the yin and yang

Omnipresent in the flow.

In the unforgiving toughness

Is the challenge to continue

In her demands to deliver

Is the discipline of approach

In the chiding of the critiques

Is the attempt to evolve

Beyond the punishing schedules.

Photo by Meruyert Gonullu on Pexels.com

And in that trusting knowing

Actors act, sculptors sculpt

Writers write, painters paint

Singers sing, dancers dance

Finding purpose in the passion

In the artistry of creativity.

And as art empowers in the connectivity

Life carries on…!

Vorticity

Art work Title : Vorticity By Savvy Raj

Sharing my swirl artwork called Vorticity. This  I created with my some of favourite colors to suit the mood of the day!

Vorticity


In the core is the dynamics  of the flow ,
Sense the spiralling fluidity
Of the momentum moving along in circles
In the whirling is the dance of energy.

Life & living

Every life has a unique story.

Every living has a unique pathway

Savvy

Whenever I come across a heart touching action, a prose ,a poem or an empowering story, I will be sharing it here in this series…

Some people make the world a hopeful place by their thoughts words and deeds…

Some people, tell it like it is without mincing anything.

And the truth in all its profound simplicity tugs your heartstrings…

https://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-beautiful-balance-between-courage-and-fear-cara-e-yar-khan#review

This is the story of Cara Khan whose sense of spirit & adventure made her dare the seemingly impossible …

Cara E. Yar Khan is an international human rights advocate promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities within all facets of society.

Thank you my dear friend Ali Anani, for it was you who shared the above Ted talk link and suggested I share a few thoughts on her.

I dedicate these following verses to her daring spirit and dancing soul!

Life is

Inexplicable uncertainty in the now

Undefinable strength in the moment

Unimaginable challenges that arise

Infinite possibilities in the potential

Unstoppable hope in the living

Be it in strength or inspite of weakness

No matter the threats or unexpected opportunities

Life shapes and moulds in experience

Be it the desires, wants or needs

Life is a journey unto itself

Life is a circle in the living.


In salute to the very courageous Cara E. Yar Khan
Her inspirational life story is an epitome of the magic of living a bigger bolder and yet a purpose driven life,
In her I see the verve, and enthusiasm in pursuit  of her Passions
and her drive towards her Purpose
as much as the Perseverance to attain it.
And when these 3 Ps combine, success is bound to manifest itself.
What matters is that she ignored what was preposterous and dared to dream.

Ignore the naysayers
You have one life
Live it well
Give it the best you have got!

Keep the faith in trust and self belief
Let go of illusions of less in assumptions
You have everything  you need within you
In daring beyond doubts &fear
Living life lovingly!

Truly nothing is insurmountable
There is in you, the power
That manifests when you need it most
You may not know the strength
And capabilities that you are carrying.
But it is always there with you
Simply trust in yourself
To be there for you!
You are more than enough for you!
