Music

Music can be elusive yet effusive

Explosive and yet an epitome of blissfulness.

You may choose to dance and flow it with it

And know how blessed are those

Who can create music to tune into.

Yet you may not own its flow

You simply owe it your joy!

Life and living




The Isha Upanishad (ईशोपनिषद्, ‘īśopaniṣad’) is one of the shortest of the Upanishads, in form more like a brief poem than a philosophical treatise, consisting of 17 or 18 verses in total. The Upanishad constitutes the final chapter (adhyāya) of the Shukla Yajurveda and survives in two versions, called Kanva (VSK) and Madhyandina (VSM).

The Isha Upanishad is significant for its description of the nature of the “Supreme Being”, exhibiting monism or a form of monotheism, referred to as Isha “Lord”. It describes this being as “unembodied, omniscient, beyond reproach, without veins, pure and uncontaminated” (verse 8), one who “moves and does not move’, who is ‘far away, but very near as well'” and who “although fixed in abode is swifter than the mind” (verses 4 & 5).

The first verse of the text has been cited as of particular importance to Vedanta or to Hinduism as a whole.

The first verse reads:

īśā vāsyam idaṃ sarvaṃ ¦ yat kiñca jagatyāṃ jagat |
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā ¦ mā gṛdhaḥ kasya sviddhanam ||

literal translation (Ralph T.H. Griffith, 1899):

“Enveloped by the Lord must be This All — each thing that moves on earth.
With that renounced enjoy thyself. Covet no wealth of anyone

Simply  profound verses.

All The Truths of  living  life in this ephemeral world  is contained  in those lines.


Sharing a few more musings by my mother on the same lines.

Whatever is available to you in this world, learn to enjoy without the feeling of possession.

You are one among the many in line. Take care while it is with you without owning it.

Breathe in Peace

You have it in you

The choice of what to do

You are your own master

You are capable to choose

What you want to do

You need to own who you are

Your passion, your purpose

Your life, your breath

Then you will breathe in peace

As you begin to own your own breath.

Heal the world

Heal the world

The stories of the bygone are contained in the stone

For within, it holds the secrets of the past.

The fragile flower owns its freshness to this now

The Blossoming of the bloom is the present truth of time.

How delicate is life and yet so very powerful in potential

One life has the power to transform lives…

But our life carry us on, not backwards

But further into the future.

The good we can do today will impact the life we have in future.

Touch a life positively & make an impact.

Intend with the goodness of your soul.

Treat yourself and others well

For you are creating goodwill in every action

Speak well and share kindness.

Enthuse yourself and create cheer.

Smile through the moments

Live love laugh.

Help heal a life and you have helped heal the world .

Special to be ordinary!

Simply outstanding & thoughtworthy.

This message may change one’s attitude!

Do read it !!

1. Name the 3 wealthiest people in the world 2019.

2. Name the last 3 winners of the Miss Universe.

3. Name the last 3 people who won the Nobel Prize for Physics.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remembers the headlines of yesterday !!

Even though these people must be the best in their fields !!

Applause dies !!

Awards are tarnished and
achievements
are forgotten …..!!

Here’s another quiz:

Let’s see how this goes:

1. Name 3 Teachers who added your journey through school.

2. Name 3 friends who helped you through difficult times.

3. Name 3 people who taught you something worthwhile.

4. Name 3 people who make you feel special.

5. Name 3 People you enjoy spending time with.

Easier…..right?😊

The people who make a difference in your life are NOT the ones with prestigious awards and loads of money !!

Life is full of ordinary people who have made the world a better place for you !!

Cherish them !!

Hold Them Tight !!

Perhaps sometimes it’s ‘Special’ to be ‘Ordinary’ !!!👌👍

Temple of being

Your body is home to life.

Treat it well.

Let life live through you

Enjoy the moments in awareness

Let your words be kind and

Let your deeds be compassionate

Allow yourself to be gentle.

Speak softly and share goodwill

You are nurturing yourself this way

Your ways will affect the energy

In and around you.

Respect the space you occupy

And value your temple of being.

A Reciprocal Arrangement

A Reciprocal Arrangement

Sometimes when we question

The very nature of being

On acts of all kinds

In awareness and without

Of stumbles and fumbles

In tethering through

And managing life and living

We awaken to the truth of the matter

Of a reciprocal arrangement.

In the cycle of life

Of nature in its infinite abundance

Of intentions in its infinite expressions

Of unfolding of paths yet known

Of unveiling of myriad patterns

All in the continuum of consciousness.

All is as it is meant to flow.

Trust life to lead your way.

All is well as it is meant to be.

For such is the circle of life.

All goes hand in hand.

Each, of value for the other

In some unknown way.

Know there is an answer to every question.

A solution for every problem.

A clarity for every confusion.

A resolution for every conflict.

And freedom of choice in spite of restraint.

Smile🙂




Smile no matter what
As you are truly meant to
Everything aligns in time
As it is meant to!


Smile and keep the cheer on
For it gives you strength
To face your fears head on
And you know you can beat the odds


Smile but make sure…
To smile from the heart
For it keeps your heart happy
Your body is at ease




Smile touching base with authenticity
Allow your eyes show its crinkles
Let your words express yourself
Sense the joy of a simple smile.

Keep  smiling  keep living
Live life lovingly
Smile whenever you can
Your smile will lighten
Up the moment for sure.



Remember smiling is  easy
It’s not too hard to put out a smile
Even in your darkest  days
When you smile you feel good

And create a positive impact.


Make sure to think well and be nice
For thoughts change with just a smile
So curve your lips upwards right now
And send out a smile to the world. 🙂

Age No Bar

To dance is to get in touch  with yourself.


To dance is to express yout own sense of rhythm.



To dance is to move from all of your heart.


To dance is to connect  with the inner child within.


To dance is so much more than the moves you do, it is to tune into your own being.


To dance is to  explore and express the connect you feel within you.


Socrates learned to dance when he was seventy because he felt that an essential part of himself had been neglected.

Age is no bar to learn to dance !

The whirling wisdom

In the gaze
Between nowhere and somewhere
Half opened eyes
Focussing within
Finding the sense of balance
In the inner recesses
Of the spirit and soul

Juxtaposed between
The art of the moves
Is the rhythm divine
That manifests the flow.
Subliming the Souls calling

Knowing the wisdom
Of the whirling moves
That centers
The mind spirit and body
All rolling into one
In the state of flow
A divinity in motion.

The truth by far
Is within us to find
Every truth unravelled
Conveys the wholeness
Of the harmonious flow
Each truth is sufficient
For the being to know.

Choose wisely

Choose not to hurry to do something

Because it is the norm.

But choose to do,

When you are truly ready…

Your life is about memories

Money can’t buy you happiness.

How do you create your own joy?

Love yourself truly in this now.

Live life engagingly & love your life.

Your life, your choices

But if you are lucky

To sense and understand…

This life & everything as it is,

You are truly blessed

To have it so.

So be wise and choose well.

Life

Life is like a book

Every page may look the same

But holds a different reason to be

Every page has its own meaning.

Layered in words and symbols

Contexts that assume clarity

Once the book is read

Messages unbound itself through words.

Peel through the layers

Life stares at you in a heartbeat

All the same.

Yet pull back the layers

Mired in perceptions

Caked in personna

Smudged in ego

Made up with assumptions

Life assumes many forms

Shaping itself in the circumstances

Each unique and distinctive

In impressions and expressions.

Neither can it be replaced nor duplicated

Nature and nurture

Have their own role to play

In the circle of life

Judge not another as you are

For every life churns out

A different truth

Of it’s own existence.
