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!

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

Life lessons

Second standard teacher started writing tables on the blackboard.
The whole class started laughing as she started writing because the first line was written wrong.
1×9=7, ❌
2×9=18, ✔
3×9=27, ✔
4×9=36, ✔
5×9=45, ✔
6×9=54 ✔
7×9=63 ✔
8×9=72 ✔
9×9=81 ✔
10×9=90 ✔
The teacher was waiting patiently till their laughter stopped.
I know, I have written the first line wrong. I wanted to teach an important life lesson on how this world will treat you.
I have written 9 lines correct here. None of you noticed that. But you all noticed the one line which was wrong and started laughing at me.
This is how the world will treat you. Even if you do things correctly for a thousand times, none will notice or praise you.
But when you go wrong even for one time they will notice and start criticising to ridicule you.
But you all should never get discouraged. Instead put your full effort to stand tall and firm in front of those who laughed at you, criticised you, or ridiculed you.

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…

Gratitude

GRATITUDE:

Is an awareness of potential flow
Is an acceptance of the almighty
Is is a conscious awakening of the heart
Is is an expression in thankfulness.

The abilty to’ Sense the Blessing in the moments’ is a reflection of a grateful soul.

Truth of movements

True learning happens when we realize we are the teacher and we are the student. And life teaches the greatest lessons without anyone uttering a word or at times in just the sheer presence of a good soul .

Likewise as we dance from our heart without a spoken word and open ourselves to realization and acceptance of new possibilities… true dancing happens!

Little things

Many drops of water

Make an ocean

Great things always begin

With the little things

Success is a matter

Of every small step taken

Such is is the power of little  things

For together they can make a big impact.

Enjoy the little things in life 

Attend to the little things that come by

For someday these little things

Create a meaningful world.

The English Language

A fun share

I received a marriage invitation. In the end was printed. ” Your presence itself is a gift. We don’t want any gifts at the marriage.”
I read it again and again. Was getting confused…

Finally I came to the conclusion, that I am not invited. And decided not to attend.
😂😂😂
English is a language which must be carefully handled; otherwise, it leads to wrong and opposite meaning.
