I am saddened when I come across the mention of race by color. I am saddened that still people are called black or white or brown or yellow.
We are called out for the shades of our skin, when the truth is, we are so much more. We cannot be confined or defined by narrow eyes.
The fact is, people see colors differently, and they may not see all the same colors while seeing the same things. There is research on how our individual brains reacts differently to different wavelengths of light.
Technically speaking the colors we see are an illusion created by our brain. We are not yet certain exactly how animals see perceive us and in which colors.
Why then this prejudice in words to describe life.
Humanity knows no color or creed.
Why are we still resorting to identify people into boxes, giving way to mental pictures and conformity.
We are capable of liberating ourselves to see the bigger picture.
A dance article recently published an article that sends out a message of how Misty Copeland is a black dancer who succeeds.
Yes we have an unequal world filled with all the ‘isms’ and the issues they bring along. It is unfair and discriminatory and biased in so many ways. Not just in race, but in species, gender, age, weight, height, class, creed, caste, religion,status,authority, education,power and wealth.
Yet the inner light of the being surmountable all odds. And life shines through the heart of the movements.
The world must come together, as it is time to release these frames of false convictions and find in itself the ability and strength to support one another in the power of life thats beating within us all.
Let us see beauty and talent in all colors and not attribute efforts and success to any colour by birth.
When we remove reference of being a particular colour we bring to light the truth of soul and the spirit of freedom to be.
In that light, every thing is illustrated in the illumination from within.
What does it take to lead ?
To lead is to dare
To make the way
For others to follow
Who is good leader?
A good leader sets an example
To demonstrate how it is done
So others can act upon it .
A good leader is a motivator
Encouraging the team in self belief
Ever ready to appreciate and trust.
The art of good leadership
Is about taking the plunge
A leap of faith in trust and hope
What does it take to follow?
To follow takes a response
To the action taken
In complete faith and trust.
Who is a good follower?
A good follower is alert
To act upon directions given
To take orders to completion.
A good follower is a team player
Ever ready to learn some more
And increase efficiency at work.
Always helps to remember…
Both a leader and follower are required
There is no leader without a follower
And there can be no follower without a leader.
Trust light to shine itself
Trust the shadows to find light
All is not dark forever
For light shimmers on shadows
What’s hidden uncovers itself
At some point or the other
Trust in time
Patterns are meant to shape
And change itself along the way
What shines has shadows
And shadows shimmer too!
Keep the faith
Shadows will find the light
All is meant to be well and bright.
Sharing a poignant prose I came across that says much and is very relevant to the state of being in the world we are in.
Happy reading & writing to all my fellow readers and writers.
Who says the page is empty ?
There is poetry that is waiting to emerge
Who says the mind is blank?
There is surging thoughts full of potential.
Who says there is stillness in the silence
Stillness is overflowing with movements.
Who says the night is dark
There is light awaiting to dawn!
A blank canvas is full of possibilities
Of creativity in all its flourishes in the flow.
There is the colour of hope
There are patterns arising in perspectives.
There is forming and shaping of things to come
There is composition awaiting the sensing
All it needs is your faith in the envisioning.
For faith is all there is
In faith there is everything!
Life is a dance
In learning the flow
Waltzing the waves
As they come and go.
Life is a journey
Of the rise and the fall
Of the swing and the sway
Waltzing through time.
Life can be like a waltz
Shaping through the moves
Of souls stepping in tandem
Of tuning in the synchrony.
Life is a waltz
Through the ups and downs
Take this waltz of life
And ease in to the flow!
