Power of Hands

Hands can create nurture

Construct and destruct

Such is the power of Hands

And the choice is our hands

Hands that care to nurture life

Is a blessing for nature. 🙌

Infinite Possibilities

Take a moment to acknowledge

Your energy is where your attention is

Tune in to abundance that is in and around you

Sense the possibilities in the potential

Worries become negligible

In the immensity of possibilities

That you actually are.

Tune in to your infinite self

Creative flow…

Travelling in Creativity

Travelling light
Flowing free
Musings in the mulling
Limitless abundance
Unparalleled potential


Beyond bars, timeless
Harmony in syñchromy
Unassuming uniqueness
Unrelated ubiquitous

Spatial Awareness

Crown shyness

Crown shyness is a phenomenon observed in fully grown trees of the same or often even different species where they maintain a distance between themselves and do not touch each other at the top forming a canopy with interesting gaps possibly for sunlight to enter or even to keep leaf eating insects from spreading .

There is much to understand and learn from nature

It’s amazing to see the wisdom of nature manifest in so many different ways around us.

Spatial awareness between trees are a striking example of the wisdom of balance in nature

There is always a reason, a wisdom we are yet to know…

After all

It is the very nature of Nature
To be the great balancer
To know when to rise and fall.
To know when to give and take.
To maintain the equilibrium.

Happy in the here and now…

A dedication and fond wishes to my daughter on her Graduation Day!

Congratulations and many blessings!!!!👏 ❤️ 🙌

Today as I prepare to attend my daughters graduation ceremony in one of the prestigious institutions in France, serendipitous moments washes over me of the many memories of nurturing my child.

I present here, one of my older posts written when my daughter was a growing teenager… but still true in every word.

On Staying Happy In the Now….

As a mother of a growing teenager I have been witnessing a number of amazing experiences that only a mother and child are privy to and I hold each of these moments close to my heart. I watch as my child is evolving into a vivacious yet emotionally intelligent teen, bubbly,full of life yet practical and sensible with a heart and mind of her own.

Although my heart oft yearns for some of these wonderful moments to stay on forever, I know I have got to let it go, as time and tide waits for none. But each time I have this immense respect for this power of the infinite to carry on creating, and wonder where all this harnessing of energies is taking place. And to this divine form, which could possibly be creative feminism or the power of Shakti, the creator I humbly bow and hope that you bestow some of latent creative potential on all the beings around for them to evolve to the best of their beings .

Coming back to the silent amazement that I feel is the way in which a child is moving from a situation of pure bliss of ignorance on to the happy in the here and now state of existence and later on moves on to a state of awareness of the world with all its actions and consequences.

Gradually the child starts searching a meaning to this life and its relation to the world at large.
More than everything else I watch as the curiosity leads to discoveries and at times frustrations to accomplishments.

I, as a parent can try to necessitate an awareness in my child to be holistic in her thinking process. For instance, from a very young age, if reading and writing are made an enjoyable habit, it definitely hones & helps balance thoughts, as one learns to be aware as well as acknowledge the sequence of changes bound to happen…

After all change is inevitable and the natural order of growth . It enables one to have a beginning, middle and an end to a thought or action and thus helps you learn to be present in the moment and also let it go. This makes you less prone to being a victim of situations & circumstances of life.

Happy in the here and now is a wonderful habit to cultivate for all of us; however it is equally necessary to have a focus in life and necessitate actions towards that goal and evolve further. This adds meaning in to life and life begets the ultimate satisfaction of having lived consciously.

Loving every moment of life and learning to be aware and conscious of each moment as it passes by is a fact ,which also can be so easily learned watching your own child grow…

Thank you dear child as you teach me the lessons of life and living fine.

On Practice

Does practise makes it perfect?

Practice is to engage and rehearse repeatedly in order to perfect a skill to mastery , but not all who practice acheive the level of an expert even with structured and deliberate practice standards in place . So we can safely say practice makes one better gradually.

A consistent practice of any talent or skill will begin to show results for sure. It could be tangible jump or it could be a little step according to the amount to time, focus and energy given to practice. In time the results could be exponential in its rewards as well.

Practice can be truly rewarding and a great source of confidence.But practice needs not only consistency but also determination in perseverance.

A few tips to improve and implement a practice routine..

Be ready to self reflect so as understand why you are motivated to continue practicing.

Be willing to develop the learners mindset and maintain it.

Be mindful of your behavioral changes as you improve and work on it positively to sustain you.

Be engaged proactively to adjust your practice levels as per requirement.

Be focused to set short and long term goals and work on achieving them.

Most of all…

Continuity of practice is important after achieving a set goal…

Keep your practice going!

On Painting

To me…

Painting is an iterative journey
Full of surprises in the flow
Something to stumble upon
To follow on & find meaning.

In letting go of the control
You begin to see the guidance
Forming in the impressions
Sometimes subtle or strong

As the brush moves on canvas
Leaving imprints of colours
Patterning itself in a narrative
Creating a purpose for itself.

Painting is a tool in trusting
In faith, in the discovery
Shaping itself through you
Bridging beyond in the now.

On understanding!

Today I came across this interesting proverb.

If a man fools me once, shame on him. If he fools me twice, shame on me. ~ Chinese Proverb

It makes me think a little more…

How much of experiences does one need to help learn from making mistakes?

Till we use our mistakes as stepping stones to success.

If there is a surefire way to surf through life without issues…

It is in the ability to take the self lightly!

To realise what seems like a big issue today may seem very insignificant in time.

How much does one depend on the armour of God to help in tiding through lifes crisis?

In sensing that faith is all there is…

There is a knowing that there is always hope beyond despair.

How can we learn to see through the facades?

In understanding that there is more to seeing beyond the looking.

How can we protect ourselves from being conned?

In trusting the self before all else!

Does loneliness or loss and the ensuing vulnerability make one a target or a victim?

It depends on ones perspective of life .

For in the loneliness there is a opportunity for self awareness

And our strengths can emanate from our vulnerabilities.

How to keep the spirit calm, collected & contented ?

In witnessing the world while breathing deeply and bringing our awareness to the now…

And how can we learn to take responsibility for our errors of judgment?

In knowing we have the power of choice with us! And remember to think well and choose equally well!.

Peacefulness

A state of coexistence

With ourselves and the world

Where we can nurture our best potential

Towards transformations

That envisions beyond compare.

It sure is a long kiss to goodnight .

Trust…

There are summers, full of fun

And more spring times, to come.

There is the beauty of mountains to envision

And snow times to chill…
Our days are yet to unravel

Countless sights of beautý to savour

Evenings to dance to some great country music.

And there is the beckonning of starry nights yet to behold …
While there will be days of thunder and lightning.

Till the storms pass on and the sun is shining

It is truly amazing when the simple love for life

And a lttle bit of hope pulls us through …

So its truly a long kiss to goodnight.

From my verses…Hope is here to stay!

Wisdom of Patience

Patience awaits

In faith and belief

Pattience is understanding

For patience hones itself

For the suitable moments

Patience is non-judgmental

Patience bears the burden

Of the moments

Knowing the power of time.

Patience is resilience in action

Patience is strength of the spirit

Patience speaks volumes of the soul

Without a word or deed.

Such is the wisdom of Patience

For much is resolved in patience

A true Companion for Wisdom is Patience and a lot of life’s so called situations which need solutions can be resolved by thinking differently !

Love

Love heals like no other

A good measure of love

Is the best antidote

To the grieving heart

True love is accommodating

Without force & compulsion

It’s ever-expansive and inclusive

Love spreads messages of hope

Kindles goodwill in aching hearts

Age no matter love springs forth enthusiasm for life and living

Such is the power of love!

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🙏
