Paving the way for Oneness

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.

On Lead and follow

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.

A lesson in Leadership

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.

Shadows shimmer too!



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

Develop patience

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.

Writing & Reading

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.

There is…

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 Waltz

Life is a dance

In learning the flow

Waltzing the waves

As they come and go.

Take this Waltz

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!

State of Earth Today

Are we cause of all suffering
We are not only the cause
We are the reason
For the ‘State of Earth’ today.

We have breached all laws of nature
We have plundered and marauded
Not only our own
But innocent voiceless sentient beings.

Our crimes are heinous
Our ways unethical
Morality or humanity
Is completely missing
Across the world today.

Our actions corelates
To the price we all must pay!
We speak without kindness
We act without empathy
We are ruthless and hopeless.

Tilting natures precious balance
By our callous self serving ways.
Our earth has taken a toll
Bearing patiently in witness mode

Centuries of abuse and neglect
Nature has no time to be silent
It’s truly now or never.
Nature must begin to equalize.

Man has broken every law of nature
Now nature needs to self repair
Humankind must change their ways
Seek ways to maintain and sustain earth.

Just being human is not enough
We must practice our humanity
Else the wrath of nature
Can no longer be contained.

Our ways had got out of hand
Life was getting unbearable
And so beyond control.
And way beyond hope.

In the madness of being modern
The malady of our times
Values and ethics were trashed
Respect and regard were binned

Stress and tension
Anxiety and panicking
Sleeplessness and fatigue
Plaguing the world over

Materialism and indulgence
Hitting an all time high
In greed apathy and indifference
We took our world for granted.

Now nature is reclaiming
What’s rightfully hers
Her pristine glory
Her beauty her peace.

Now nature has put humans in cages.
Animals and birds roam free,
Roads are empty, rivers are cleaner
Pollution has given way to purer air.

While mankind is locked down.
Nature is restoring to sustain herself
Hope we realize & amend our ways
For the State of earth today.
