On Togetherness

On togetherness

The question is are we strengthened or divided in time spent in togetherness. Nations that are close in proximity hardly are together like people who may live together seemingly close knitted but hardly feel united in spirit.

The picture above intrigues me…

Entwined hands in a show of unity

Three different shades of skin

Starkly different in tones and hues

Blood beneath it all is the colour red

Alive in this now and together

They seem bonded by life

Yet this show of togetherness is a far cry

And belies the truth and reeks of racial struggles of times bygone.

Light medium and dark

These three sheaths of skin

Speak volumes of the unspoken rift

They tell tales of discrimination

Of slavery and class differentiation

Of power struggles and domination

Of the oppressed and the oppressors

Of distances in between

Of privileged and underprivileged

Is this show of strength in unity … Is it

An illusion of togetherness

A kiss and tell in feigned innocence

Or a facade put forth

In the very bliss of ignorance

One doesn’t know

Like we know not how souls choose the body to live to enjoy or endure it through a lifetime.

In the blissful togetherness!

Our world today may have woken up in bits and pieces.

In awareness of equality of the sexes

With respect for beings alike

With value for human dignity by far

Yet there is ongoing war and terror everywhere

Women are not safe anywhere

As predators lurk,

Children have to be watched over carefully

None feel safe any place anywhere

And peace is the need of this planet …in this now

If there is anything that may help bridge the gap

It is the awareness of the humanity in each other

And the strength of the interconnects in the interbeing

True togetherness is a trustful knowing in interdependence

In acceptance of one another in spite of their unique differences.

These reflections in verse format are my hearts cry that poured through the verses addressing many ills and evils of society.

Namely lack of tolerance, inequality, indignity, racial discrimination, body shaming, gender bias, atrocities on women ,child safety issues as much the forest fires and global warming and not to forget the threats of terror,war and more.

We are simply making it more difficult to live in this planet with each other by our egoplays, taking one another and our world for granted and need for domination without a consideration of the consequences of our actions.

Why can’t we coexist in peace and in strength of unity in this beautiful ball of blue?

After all it is the only one world we have.

Rhythm Divine

The beauty in every breath of life is in its impressions in the expressions through the tones, shades, in its patterns & rhythms.

This sets it apart…such is the uniqueness to every breath in the being.

Here and there…

Mirage of the moment

For here we exist and live
Carrying on thinking this is life

Feeling and sensing what is felt
Unaware of the mirage of this moment.

Here and there.

Everything is as much as it is not
All in this vortex of time caught
Sharing spaces
In these so called places …

We stand breathing
In the betwixt and between
The blurring line
Of the so called real and unreal.
Each steadfast in thought and opinion
Of deed and action
Hoping to leave impression
On these shifting sands of time.

Here and there and everywhere…

The Dance and the Dancer

How can you separate the dancer from the dance?

For there is no one without the other
Body and soul united in spirit.
When the two meet there emerges energy
In unison of the cohesive oneness
The heart knows what the mind speaks
And mind tells what the heart wants

In the dance of the lead and follow
There is no one without the other.
There is a draw of passion
There a pull of power
And there is the push of purpose
To flow as one in the moment of the now!
Embedded is the dance in a dancer
Embalmed is the dancer in the dance.

For Oneness is the universal spirit of dance!
Flowing, Feeling
Bending, Blending
Twisting, Turning
Tapping, Trusting
Marking, Merging
Dipping, Drawing
Swiveling, Sensing

Whirling, Waltzing

The list goes on…

All in this circle of Life

And Life is a dance!

And The Answers Rest Within…

In the search for answers

To simplify the complex

Many paths present itself.

Every path is infinite in possibilities.

The question is are we ready to walk the path.

And what we evolve into while walking

The Path of choice?

And the solutions are in the emergence

Of a stream of consciousness in awareness,

Of a meeting point in the melting pot.

From convergence to transcendence.

An approach that is inclusive in temperament

And expansive in the envisioning.

All the questions come in the living

All the answers are in the being.

On Writing & Writers

By Savvy Raj

Every writer has many or no reason about what and why they write …

It is the most natural thing to do or it is a task to even bring two words together. It is an integrative experience or a chore to get done with depending on our attitudes, to begin with!

Any artistic expression like writing is always very interconnected with the emotions an emotionally charged experience especially when you express anguish through words.

Writing can set free deep-seated emotions and in such freedom is the underlying responsibility…

Writing is a responsibility as once writ, the words have great power to stir emotions and touch hearts , to enthuse or infuse hope or hatred . So it is imperative to exercise awareness through every word written and published.

“It’s only words and

Words are all I have to take your heart away…”

Words by Boyzone

And so the beautiful song ‘Words’ goes on but the truth is undeniable.

Words wield power and the choice of what you say or write matters a great deal than one can imagine.

Write to express
Write to share
Write to heal
Write to enjoy!
