Making things right

In being proved wrong
We learn something new
What if we celebrate the learning
Than criticize making mistakes
For mistakes are an error of judgement.
It is already happened, in the past
What matters is what we make of it
Are we ready to accept our mistakes?
Are we ready to learn from it to move on?
After all instead of fussing over mistakes,
Let’s be receptive to being wrong.
And care to imbibe a new perspective
For then we can be a little less wrong now🙏

Flames afire

Sharing a beautiful message with you…

A man, who regularly attended family & group meetings suddenly, without any notice, stopped participating.
After a few weeks, one very cold night the leader of that group decided to visit him.

He found the man at home, alone, sitting in front of a fireplace where a bright fire burned.

The man welcomed the leader. There was great calm & silence.

The two men only watched the dancing flames around the logs that crackled in the fireplace.

After a few minutes the leader, without saying a word, examined the logs that formed the fire and selected one of them, glowing most brightly of all, and removed it to the side with a pair of tongs. Then he sat down again.

The host was paying attention to everything, fascinated. Before long, the lone log’s flame subsided, until there was only a momentary glow and the fire soon went out.
In a short time what was previously bright light and heat had become nothing more than a black dead piece of wood.
Very few words had been spoken since the greeting.

Before preparing to leave, the leader picked up the useless piece of wood with the tongs and placed it again in the middle of the fire. Immediately, the piece of wood was rekindled, fuelled by the light and heat of the burning logs around it.

When the leader was about to leave & had reached the door, the host said: ‘Thank you for your visit and for your beautiful lesson. I’ll return to the group soon.’

Why is a group important in our lives ?

Very simple:
Because each member that withdraws takes fire and heat from the rest.

It’s worth reminding group members that they are a part of the flame.

It’s also good to remind us that we are all responsible for keeping each other’s flame burning.
And we must promote the union among us so that the fire is really strong, effective and lasting. Keep the fire burning.

THE GROUP IS ALSO A FAMILY
It doesn’t matter if sometimes we are bothered by so many messages, quarrels and misunderstandings.

What matters is to be connected. We are here to meet, message, learn, exchange ideas or simply to know that we are not alone

Let’s keep the flame alive.

Life is beautiful with friends and family.

Authentic Appreciation

Give credit, when and where credit is due

Shy not from appreciation.

Neither in giving nor taking.

If you see something that makes you feel like appreciating…

Do so immediately, don’t wait for another day.

For authentic appreciation can transform the world for the receiver.

Words matter, a great deal

Say words that mean well

Let there be no ambiguity

When you mean well

Let your words drive the message home.

All is well in clarity of communication.

Poets & Planning

My friend Ali Anani from Jordan proposed an interesting question last evening.

“As a poet dear Savvy I just wonder how much do you trust planning?”

Here are my musings…

Poets and Planning

A poet has a lot of structuring to do…
The poet steps out of the box
Knowing only too well that thoughts needs to align in time.
Without trust in the divine plan there is no way the poet can create.
And without a plan that visualizes the bigger picture as much as the little details, the verse will not make sense.
So poets and planning have much to do in trustfulness.

Now speaking personally,
Spontaneity seems to surge
In the throes of a thoughwave.
Yet much is happens in following the flow.
Synergies are sensed
In the amalgamation and associations.
Of thoughts into verses.

As words then fill the void spaces
Making meaning out of matter.
Spontaneity too then is preordained in the divine plan
And poets are simply messengers
Enriching thoughts in a meter of sorts.
To make the ordinary words come alive!

Sensing synergies

Creativity flourishes in moving beyond the box stepping out of the emerging collages in the interpretation, time and time again.

Every creative endeavour is rooted in a dance of the energy within and around us … the dynamics of integration embodies the creative output.

On Kindness

If only we could realize how valuable it is to be appreciated and supported .

If we could only know how important it is to feel inclusive in our diverse ways.

We must understand that love and kindness is the only way besides adopting a non-judgmental approach.

We must realise how vulnerable life is, but beyond feeling victimized and create further suffering due to negative thoughts

We need to respond with empathy, show unity through kindness and compassionate deeds.

The power of kindness is truly infinite.
KINDNESS IS THE PRAYER IN ACTION.

Titled: Interconnectedness

When we realise the Eternity of time in the Circle of Life we will be able to see beyond the illusory perceptions… And most of all accept and respect the significance of every being in the cosmos as they are…

Each of us here is divinely orchestrated towards the purpose of our being, strengthened by the Circle of Interconnects that run deeper than we can fathom …. we may not need all the answers that we seek but they are always there with us for us to understand.

If we must seek… Let us Seek Connectedness,

If we must awaken… Let us Awaken the Spirit of Being

If we must move, Let us Move with Empathy in Action

If we must choose Let us Choose the Simplicity of Authenticity

If we must rest… Let us Rest with Contentment

If we must pursue… Let us Pursue Thankfulness in Gratitude

If we must strive…Let us Strive for Patience and Tolerance

If we must fight… Let us Fight Apathy and Ignorance

If we must reach …Let us Reach out with Kindness

If we must become …Let us Become a Better version of Us!

Walking for Wellness

It’s not how much distance you cover

It’s how much you walk with all of you

If you are simply stepping forward as your feet are moving

You will feel drained in time and lose interest soon

As you will feel, it is a chore to do.

If you can begin to sense the way it feels, as you walk

You might be engaging with all of you

Sense the ground as you walk

Time your breath in awareness

Acknowledge the world around you

Witness the changing  scenarios as you walk.

As well as the way you are feeling.

Be one with your present movement and your breath

You are on a journey into your conscious self.

Nuture your movements with care consistently.

For they matter a great deal.

Walk for Wellness.

Power of Realization

A share one morning from my friend Pamela De Luca got my attention.

Love the dedicated writing of Thich Nan Thich.

In the awakening to the truth of the being

There is an acknowledgement in gratefulness

As much as there is awe and wonder at the magnificence of creation itself.

Subtle becomes strength

Strength senses subtlety

As we swim through the tides of existence

We realize our strength is best in being one with the flow

As there is deepest connection

Such is the power in the realization.

Flow through life

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before childrenKahlil Gibran

A life well lived

Includes experiences

That makes us who we are.

We are not set in stone

Or cast in iron that cannot mould

Our emotional being cannot be suppressed

We are life living breathing and exploring possibilities.

Our infinite ways of expressions is unique to our being

We surf the tides of changes and flow

And we learn as we go.

Way of work

An expansive quote on the way of work comes to mind in this now

It’s hard to do one thing 100% better than everyone, but you can do 100 things 1% better. It all adds up.– Jay Steinfeld

A few musings pertaining to the way of Continous Improvements at work…

Integrity speaks more than words.

Have confidence in your principles

Think of ways to support one another

Collaboration is a great team builder

Working to improve without antagonizing

Take your ego out of changing scenarios

It makes it easier to adapt to changes.

As you lead, help team, to own their work

Help teams to lose their self doubts

Help make their vulnerability a strength

Being understanding than seeming smart

Is important for one and all.

Choose to do good by people all the time

Make space to find authentic resolutions

Create culture to welcome feedback

To allow yourself to know where you are

Nurture, the genuine human connections

Build trustful relationships with one & all

Work will feel totally worthwhile!

Dance of Connection

Universal Oneness is an awareness
In reflections of the truth of the being
Interweaved and interconnected in every life .
Strength shines through the vulnerabilities.
As a power in the very fragility
Touched by divine grace
Enmeshed in the senses
Fired in the cauldron of life and living
Comes a consciousness of the flow
In and around us
Beyond the illusion of separation.
Is the dance of connection.
