Happy Fathers Day! God Bless Dads!

This is one of those moments when writing and sharing stories from our lives bring us a deep sense of connection… with our readers and ourselves in gratitude for the learnings. And there is that sense of magic sensed in our hearts which evokes poignant feeling of fond memories of the people that are attached to it.

Like a river flows…

Like rivers are meant to flow
For it to meet the sea
Nourishing the earth along the way
Gushing forth with the water of life.

Let us flow through life
Exploring and experiencing
Meandering through many facets of living
Nurturing it with heartfelt love.

For life is like the river
We are meant to flow
And not stagnate and perish
In doubts and insecurities.

Like a river trusts itself in the flow

Merging into oneness eventually

Moving forth constantly in time and space.

Flow in faith like a river flows!

Eloquence of Silence

When silence speaks

Eloquently waxing words

There is a stillness

In the soul of the being

In sensing abundance

Of this moment in time

And in the stillness of the now

Is a divine orchestration

Of the rapturous flow

Of the beauty of nature

And its wonder in awe!

All is peace All is well!

In both the home and the hearth.

In both the heart and the mind

For the spirit is truly at bliss.

Engaging with this now!

Knowledge speaks

Wisdom listens.

Almost to invisibility in subtlety

Humility blends

And becomes nothingness.

Transporting the self to spaces beyond

Transcending what seems impossible.

Sensing the vibration in between

And living life in every now!

Knowing the value in the ordinary

Letting the unnecessary go

Being alive to the present

Acknowledging everything that is as it is

Engaging with this now intensely!

Strength of a Woman

In the lives of many women

Being strong is not an option

It is a necessity!

In a world riddled with inequalities

In a world full of double standards

Standing up for yourself

Becomes a tool for survival.

In those tricky moments

In a blink of an eye

Push comes to shove

Pleasure turns to pain

Hurt and betrayal

Seems to fill the air

There she is, left standing alone

To fend for herself on her own.

It is then that she meets fear in the eye

Faces the dark side of humanity

Sensing power in her vulnerability.

Who says a woman is weak?

Watch her rise like a phoenix!

Tremendous is her tenacity!

Resourceful is her resiliency!

The strength of a woman

Braves through the rising storm

Daring beyond the hurt and pain

Fighting through the wrong doings

She moves on to heal and build

In hope and faith in a new morrow

For she knows in her heart

Tommorow is another day!

Savvy

My dedication to Women all around the world!

Every Day is Women’s Day !

Happy Women’s Day!

Light after the night.

After deep pain arrives a great blessing
After heavy rain appears the rainbow

In toughest moments arrives a breakthrough
Through the biggest wave shines through a light.

The longest night awakens with the hope of new dawn.
The longest tunnel opens to beams of sunlight

In deepest silence may be hidden utmost reverence.
In deepest gratitude lies a heartfelt prayer

What is visible may be an illusion
What is invisible may be the truth!

On Mindfulness

Mindfulness is always a work in progress… It is a continuous journey in awareness, not just a destination.
It is a cultivation of appreciation for life and living in every moment…

  • To meet & see things as they are
  • To have an awareness of the self and another.
  • To integrate the mind and body
  • To know all is deeply connected
  • To acknowledge the arising perspectives as part of the flow.
  • To value the spaces between the steps
  • To respond than react.
  • To create a habit to be in a witness mode.
  • To have patience in waiting.
  • To sense the awareness of the oneness.

  • To feel safe and supported
  • To develop space to be content and connected.
  • To be glad for no particular reason.
  • To live with awareness than simply exist in the moment.

The Creative touchIs in the hands of the artistA simple stroke here a drag thereCreates a whole new meaning.Bringing life to the art.While embellishments adorn the art in the artistryThe message conveyed well, even in the simplest formAdds the depth of authenticity to the story telling.The genius is in the ingenuityIn the portrayal of the abstractsWith an intuitive intellect of insightsAll in the astute acumen of innovation.Art can be both joyful and painstaking in the process…To cast and carve, chiselling awayTowards the finesse of the elusive perfection.All is but a masterstroke of the creative touch.An ode to artistry I must thank this unknown artist in the clip who created this beautiful depiction of the festival of Pongal celebration in South India.Watching this video clip made me write a few dedicated verses on the art and flair of the creative touch.Savvy

Truths of life

As Above So Below

As Within So without

As the Universe So the Soul…

Artwork by Savvy Raj

Truths of life.

Life manifests itself the way you see it.

Your words thoughts and attitudes

Are powerful beyond your understanding.

As you intend, you co-create the path

The truth of life is within around and beyond you .

Your choice in free will matters

Your integrity of spirit and soul evolves along the way.

Action creates reaction which needs to turn to response in awareness.

Hurry or worry is simply a state of the mind and emotions which needs understanding to let go.

All is a work in progress

A continuation in the evolution.

Powers within.

Your ability to think ,imagine, create and express is a gift of life.

Your own positive thoughts create positive expressions and leaves lasting positive benefits in and around you .

Remember you are creating the future with your thoughts.

Think well. Intend well.

Just having the courage to express ourselves, we open ourselves to a vulnerable yet creative self, and that is the light in us shining through….:)

Life comes a full circle

Who has not felt ripples
At some point or another
Life comes a full circle
With its curves of ups and downs.

In the course of living
There will be many ups
Where the ego is boosted
And the spirit seems to soar.

And in the same breath
There will be many downs
Of grief despair and loss
Sometimes beyond compare.

As life continues its path
Between the nowhere and somewhere
Between the pain and pleasures
Know there is an art to living.

Call it the wisdom of moderation
To stay clear of tilting in the extremes
Of emotions that manifest
In life and living.

Sense it all, both pain and pleasures
For what is life after all
A little laughter to fill your hearts
And let your tears flow if they must
Just don’t dwell in it for too long…

Move on, learning to flow with life
You are no mountain to stand unmoved
Or stagnant pond collecting debris
You are filled with the wonder of life.

Just like trees, shed your pain
Like dried autumn leaves
Let go of your worries
Allow yourself to flourish again.

You are meant to flow
Like a stream in the river of time
You are meant to grow
And evolve along the way.

Choose to care and share
With your fellow travellers
For each life matters, somehow somewhere
To one and all, along the way!

Savvy

Wrote these verses for someone and anyone who is going through a rough patch.

Hoping for the best and sending in loads of goodwill.

Ask the flower

How does a moment last forever…

Ask the flower
That leaves impressive impressions
In such a short span.

From a bud to a bloom

Lessons in living life
Fully in every moment.

On Embodiment

Channelling Embodiment: Artwork by Savvy Raj

On Embodiment

Immerse yourself completely in your passion

Your every expression of it is what makes it tangible

As you direct your focus to its manifestation

As you keep moving from the abstract to the concrete

As you recognize the gifts of life and connect with it.

Your engagement will and perseverance will take you through

That is what creates possibilities beyond limitations.

To realise your dream, you embody it.
