On Freedom

I came across two images yesterday

One of a fluffy floating cloud

With the surreal image of rootedness

The cloud signifying the leaves of a tree

Changing with the seasons of nature

Fleeting by with no barriers

The other of a caged cloud

So very profound

Two pieces of sky before me

Making me feel so very different

One made my heart sing in joy

To sense the lightness of being

The other although dense

Made me hope and believe

For a moving cloud cannot be caged

Yet the fact remains, freedom matters

Most to life and living

Life cannot be reigned

For life is meant  to flow

On caring…





Life and living  can be both beautiful  and challenging beyond compare…

Touched by these heartfelt  words I came across so much that I just had to share..






“Take me out to the street, son, I still have good legs. If I walk with you, I won’t feel old …
Invite me to your home, son, Sunday morning; to share your good table and feel accompanied …
Talk to me with love, son, don’t challenge me or shake me; we old people are like children we like to be pampered, to smile without discomfort …
Celebrate my birthdays, don’t criticize my follies; I’ll try to be brave, even if bitterness arises …
Don’t push me away from you, don’t talk to me in anger; I still have my mind clear, the memories of the past …
Come visit me at home, my son, I will not ask you for anything; just your presence and contemplate your face …
Don’t leave me sad and alone, don’t put me to bed; the doctors are wrong, the pain is in the soul … ”






On Caring…

Care to give of yourself
Someday you may need it too!


Age is no bar
To create a value
For age is just a number.

Experience of living, matters.


Treat life with care
For life comes a full circle.



Life can at times be lonely
Make time to be present
In the life of those  who need you.


Just a bit of your time
A kind word or deed
Will make all the difference.




Express kindness
Your near and dear ones
Need to sense it.
Show empathy
Share the love.

In The Lightness of being.


There are few gifts
Of life in the living
Like joy of laughter
Like the happiness of smiles
Like the sharing of loving kindness
Like sensing of gratitude


They add to your life
They heal your being
Body mind and Soul.
The more you have it
And live expressing it 
The better the health of your heart.

A good thought
A good deed
A good laugh
And all is well
In the lightness of being.

Sensing my share of these gifts.
Are you?

Channelling life.

Create no space for hatred
Have no wish for revenge
Choose to not be filled with vengeance
Channel thoughts away from anger

Have no room for haste.
Accept patience as your friend
Be mindful, be peaceful, be grateful
And all is well.

Ascension Plan

Aim high

Take flight

Who cannot be with you

Will move on their way

Keep perseverance alive

Stay passionate in pursuit

Have dreams and intentions

Aspire to inspire

That is your ascension plan.

Sharing a story that I came acros…

The Eagle and the Crow
===================

The only bird that dares to peck an eagle is the crow. He sits on his back and bites his neck. The eagle does not respond, nor fight with the crow. It does not spend time or energy on the crow.

It just opens its wings and begins to rise higher in the heavens. The higher the flight, the harder it is for the crow to breathe and then the crow falls due to lack of oxygen.

Learn from the eagle and don’t fight the crows. Just keep ascending. They might be along for the ride, but they’ll fall off.

Always have an Ascension Plan.

Have a wonderful weekend!

On Attitude


Our perception
The way we see
Changes the way
We take action
Our attitude
Can make or break
Our way of being. 



Its all in us
The ability
Of changing
Our ways
Towards understanding
Towards realizing
Towards learning
There is always more…
Than what we choose to presume
The way we express
The way we carry ourselves
Our attitude says it all!

A matter of tuning…


When sounds begin too feel like music
Life takes on a new meaning.

Breathing into the songs of soul

All is a matter of fine tuning
Music makes my spirit come alive
Melodies can make me sing along
Rhythms can make my heart dance
The beats can  get my feet moving…

What about you?
How do you relate with music?
Do you have a favorite  type of music?
What is the music of your soul like?

Carpe diem

So many solar cycles wiser
If you have survived so far
What makes you think
Any less of yourself?

From heartbreaking moments
To unexpected challenges
You have survived it all.
Let the moment unfold

Sense the spirit of life within
Hope is here to stay!
Make the most of this moment of now
Make a choice to seize the day!
Carpe diem!

Carpe diem…. Seize the day!

Why this Prejudice?



Why this Prejudice…
Of running life down
Of praising one gender
Of shaming one another

Why these violations…
Of human life
Of dignity?
Of personal freedom


Why these exploitations…
Of weak by strong?
Of bullying
And aggressions.


Life is meant to live
To express itself
For itself!
Its not born to be at mercy!

What makes one life
Assume superiority
And think it has power
Over the other?

Let practice respect for one another
Then teach children
To respect the differences
And acknowledge the diversities.

Our pride and prejudices
Have only caused war and illwill
Let us share empathy & goodwill
And let go our hatred and malices

Let us not discriminate
Every colour is beautiful to see
Every life has a reason  to be
Just as you and me.

A reason to be

Every thing has a reason to be

Air and Space Water Form
All elements of being
This beautiful world of ours
Blesses us much
So much gratitude
For these elements of life.
We are born of it and we need it to survive

Every thing has a reason to be

The river of time
The water that flows
The shape of things
The spaces we occupy
The air that we breathe
All matters for life and living.

We breathe air to live in space
This air that we breathe
We often take for granted
This air is the gift of earth around us.
We need to value its presence
We need to keep it pure and clean
For what we breathe we are
For our actions depend upon it.

A ship floats in water
Not just because of buoyancy
But because there is air tight space
A space that contains air
A space that aids the displacement
A space that balances the weight
A space that lightens the load
The shape makes a difference
In the way the weight is carried
The shape of the ship makes it float.
Displacing water equal to its weight
Helping it to stay afloat.

Archimedes’ principle, physical law of buoyancy, discovered by the ancient Greek mathematician and inventor Archimedes, stating that any body completely or partially submerged in a fluid (gas or liquid) at rest is acted upon by an upward, or buoyant, force, the magnitude of which is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body. The volume of displaced fluid is equivalent to the volume of an object fully immersed in a fluid or to that fraction of the volume below the surface for an object partially submerged in a liquid. The weight of the displaced portion of the fluid is equivalent to the magnitude of the buoyant force. The buoyant force on a body floating in a liquid or gas is also equivalent in magnitude to the weight of the floating object and is opposite in direction; the object neither rises nor sinks. For example, a ship that is launched sinks into the ocean until the weight of the water it displaces is just equal to its own weight. As the ship is loaded, it sinks deeper, displacing more water, and so the magnitude of the buoyant force continuously matches the weight of the ship and its cargo.

The Way We See The World




All of creation has a purpose to its being.

It charts its course towards it.


If we are able to understand  the reason for life is to be…

As it is meant to be
We will be more tolerant and inclusive
We will think before we speak
We will choose to see the good and nurture the good.
What we choose to notice presents itself in many ways
As  the way we choose to see the world
The world mirrors itself to us.




See the world with wonder and awe
Choose to respect and be responsible
Cultivate a sense of respect gratitude.
For the infinite abundance called life!

Breathe

 

Breathe in calm

Sharing my artwork that resonates with  these reflections.



In this masked world

So full of fear

Awaiting the ability to breath

And move without restrictions

It is imperative  in spite of the chaos

To breathe in calm in spite of the storm

When Peace Becomes a Priority!


Breathe in stillness

Breathe in tranquility

Breathe in some inner calm.

It sets things in order 

To flow in harmony once again.

Live life lovingly!

It’s wonderful and easy

When life is a breeze

But the test is when

It’s a little stormy…

Life is a gift

Any which way

The trick is to see

The many blessings

That at times goes unnoticed.

Live life lovingly!

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 react differently to different wavelengths of light.
Technically speaking the colors we see is 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 that’s beating within us all.

Let us see beauty and talent in all colors and not attribute efforts and success to any color by birth.
When we remove reference of being a particular color we bring to light the truth of the soul and the spirit of freedom to be.

In that light, everything is illustrated in the illumination from within.

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!
