The other side

A BEAUTIFUL WAY OF LOOKING AT THINGS:

A Father was reading a magazine and his little daughter every now and then distracted him. To keep her busy, he tore one page on which was printed the map of the world. He tore it into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.

He was sure she would take the whole day to get it done. But the little one came back within minutes with perfect map……When he asked how she could do it so quickly, she said, “Oh…. Dad, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper….. I made the face perfect to get the map right.” She ran outside to play leaving the father surprised.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
There is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world. Whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, look at the other side…. You will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem.

A few musings…

The difference between just looking and seeing is so much in the depth and dimension of expansions in our flow of thoughts .An expansion in our acceptability and flexibility changes the seemingly complex situations to simple solutions .:)

Each moment is a new me.

Change, the one that never changes
Is Nature’s way of continuing the Eternal cycle of life and death.

The Infinite Cosmic Energy, being the Eternal Centre
Changes keep on happening
In every atom, molecule, particle, and cell.
Thus widening the horizon,

From Invisible subtle to Visible gross.
Creation and destruction, a part of this change,
The various cycles of Life and seasons
Changing monotony to a variety
In mind and matter.

Colours and moods transient, every moment.
Wondering in awe to the moment next.
Dwell not in the past,
Fret not the Future,
Never to lose the Magic of the Present.
Each moment a new me is born.

Be present to cherish the Present.
Be aware n awake to witness

The blossom of bud to fragrant flower.

‘Your poems become my muse’. 😊.

This is what I received from my mother this morning after she read my yesterday’s post ‘ Glimmers of hope’.

‘Thank you, mom, for writing your reflections. It truly means much to me.’

Have simply added some pictures to go along with her words.

A little more…

A want of more
Than what one has
A little more of everything
And then some more

The stakes keep rising
For fame, name and wealth
For success must be achieved
No matter the consequence.

Such is the nature of life
Of curiosity wonder and awe.
Without wisdom of moderation
Wants continue to grow.

Greed and avarice
Raises its hood
Life turns material
And ripples of chaos reigns.

When ripples turn still
There is union in the being
From desire to contentment
Fulfillment in the realisation.

When wanting evolves to knowing
In understanding, all is within
Both the wants and the knowing.
Seeking sublimes in silent awareness.

When I shared my verses on Life and living … https://savvyraj.com/2018/10/23/life-comes-a-full-circle/

There was a message from one of the readers that made me reflect and write on the very nature of ripples in life and living. From the chaos of change to the stillness of sublimity.

SOUL CAGES

Titled: Unshackled…An Artwork By Savvy Raj

 

 

Born free we truly are, but we learn to evolve, to move beyond the soul cages of our own being!

When we learn to appreciate the freedom that is ours for the taking, we realise its value in deep gratitude!

‘Do not do this…Do not do that …’ often these are the words which are entrenched in our brains in the name of effective and good rearing.
We are told for goodness sake to avoid disappointments at all cost and to stay away from failure. Often our programming is tracked for success without a doubt. Superb indeed! A mindful way of being, which acknowledges the good and disregards the bad.
Great, then where is the issue? There should be none at all! However, the reverse is the case… and often as well!

For example… a child very lovingly brought up has to experience and grow in a world of dualities. There are all kinds of people that make up this world and varied experiences to be had in this journey of life. Preparation of exigencies is thus a necessity after all.

Acceptance and Adaptability

This is the key that we mould from within, as we evolve towards unlocking the secrets of a successful life.

    • Dealing with what must be dealt
    • Bending in the flow where it is necessary
    • Standing up for something or someone you care in support
  • Steering through the crisis that shows up without notice

All these takes nerves of steel and resilience of composure in calamity. And never forget that smile from the heart and all of your being.

As life is like that … a taste of bitter and sweet all spiced with the nicest surprises yet tinged with necessary learnings along the way.

Freedom is being who you are

Everything alive has a right to be, all that they manifest with the uniqueness of their thoughts. There is always room for expansion while accepting another as they choose to be.

Self-imposed restrictions may be a discipline necessary for one to learn, while for another it will stifle them if forced in even small measures. Caged by its own thoughts… the soul of the being needs to set itself free from limiting self-reflections to a spectrum of colours beyond!

 

    • Break free from Soul cages of convictions that hold you in chains of restrictions And evolve with your resurrection.
    • Remember the world is free, as free as you want it to be. Just take care that along the way, another’s joy you do not steal.
    • In the acceptance of the free-spiritedness of another being, there is the unshackled lightness of your own being!

Remember you are born free…

To be all that you choose to be!

Rhythm and Rhyme

Rhyme gets you going every time

Indeed there is no need for a reason to rhyme

But as the words wax an eloquent jostle

It kindles the heart and fires the memory muscle

When the pen frees up to move with ease

And is done with arranging words, as you please

It feels suddenly the most liberating thing

Like setting free the tune that you are ready to sing

And in the joy of the spirit, its’s no wonder …

A song is born, in all this heartfelt endeavor

As the rhyme connects with rhythm by chance

Those who move the easiest have learned to sing and dance….:)

The Gift of Life

To dance is to acknowledge the living you at this moment
In every move, the heart and mind is looped in joyousness
In every flight is the beauty of lightness.

To dance is to realize

The sensation of living

And to energize the self

As well as the surroundings

With this gift of life!

On tranquillity

In sensing the tranquillity within
In knowing the sounds of silence
In flowing freely in the moment

Is the dance of wonder and awe
Of the beauty in the being …
In the bliss of the bless.
