On Self Care & Compassion

A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day.
A string of such moments can change the course of your life.”
– Chris Gerner

This very relevant quote came my way & I simply had to share ❤

Horizon Of Hope



Every horizon once reached

It reveals another

Beckoning at a distance…

Horizon is born of hope

Of the beyond in this now.


Horizon are meant to hope

To aspire to reach beyond

In the yonder across the horizon

Where the sky converges…

Is a matter of knowing

There is always more

Of natures grace.

Such is the abundance

Of unending hope.

This too shall pass

As you walk through

The sands of time

You will come across

Stories of truth and dare

Of pain and pleasure

Of life and living

That makes you wonder…

Why do some lives go through
Soul stirring moments of awakenings
And some soul numbing pain?

Why do some lives, dominate the weak
And some are broken and shattered in despair beyond repair.
Why do some lives live to experience
luxurious lifestyles.
And some are born to slavery or traded

Why do some lives matter more?
Why lives lived are discriminated for its diversity of nature and differently treated?
Why day and night stops making sense for some.

We truly have no answers
But what we do now is the truth of this moment changes in the next!
That is solace enough to weather the storms.

For life is transitory and everything changes
For nothing stays the same.
This too shall pass.

WISDOM OF STILLNESS




I listened  to my heart
Every day
As it shares from within
And I write them out as words
Sometimes as verses
At times its measured
In moderation.
Its a zen moment
For there is clarity
In just a few words shared.


Then there are times

They flow like a river
A torrent in a current
Patterning  itself
In its own making
Words come through me
As if it needs to be spoken
Sharing the sensitivity
Of the moments at hand.
I listen simply with rapt attention
For in the slightest flutter
In every movement in the moments
Or the depth of silence
There is wisdom in the stillness.

Unshackled Souls



Cage not the heart

Of those who dream of the yonder

Beyond the clouds, over the hills

Far across the horizon their soul

belongs.

Sounds of silence

Seek not stillness
Embody it.

Search not silence
Sense it

Silence speaks
Be still.

Stillness moves you
Feel it.

Breath in stillness
Pray in silence

Own your stillness
Choose silence

Silence resonates

Keep listening

It is Peaceful.

Begin to give

Sharing a thought provoking read I came across today.

*Die empty*

The most beautiful book to read is “Die Empty” by Todd Henry.
The author was inspired and got this idea of writing this book while attending a business meeting.
When the director asked the audience: “Where is the richest land in the world?”
One of the audience answered: “Oil-rich Gulf states.”
Another added: “Diamond mines in Africa.”
Then the director said: “No it is the cemetery. Yes, it is the richest land in the world, because millions of people have departed/died and they carried many valuable ideas that did not come to light nor benefit others. It is all in the cemetery where they are buried.”

Inspired by this answer, Todd Henry wrote his book, “Die empty” where he did his best to motivate people to pour out their ideas and potential energies in their communities and turn them into something useful before it is too late.

The most beautiful of what he said in his book is: “Do not go to your grave and carry inside you the best that you have.
*Always choose to die empty.*

The TRUE meaning of this expression, is to die empty of all the goodness that is within you. Deliver it to the world, before you leave.

If you have an idea perform it.
If you have knowledge give it out.
If you have a goal achieve it.
Love, share and distribute, do not keep it inside.

Let’s begin to give. Remove and spread every atom of goodness inside us.

Start the race.
*Die Empty*😊💐

I choose to share this because who knows how it may touch another’s life.

There is much wisdom in choosing to give out as we live life .

As we get, give_

As we gain, give

As we learn, share.

The truth hurts and heals

Truth seeks out itself

Truth is able to enable

The seeker with reserve

To bear and see-through

The facades of illusions.

For truth knows itself

That it lies embedded

Enshrouded and embalmed

To reveal itself unscathed.

Truth cannot be restrained & shackled

In imagination and indecision.

Truth cannot be locked and chained

In the doubts of insecurities.

Truth is within & out there

The truth appears when it wants

To touch the core of the being.

Truth knows and understands.

Truth hurts and heals itself.

Be my guest not my master!

I don’t know who wrote this, but it’s beautiful…

… We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.

… Suddenly Disney is out of magic,
… Paris is no longer romantic,
… New York doesn’t stand up anymore,
… Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.

… Hugs & kisses suddenly become weapons, and not visiting parents & friends becomes an act of love.

… Suddenly we realise that power, beauty & money are worthless, and can’t get us the oxygen we’re fighting for.

The world continues its life and it is beautiful. It only puts humans in cages. I think it’s sending us a message:

“You are not necessary. The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine. When you come back, remember that you are my guests. Not my masters.”

23rd November 2020

Today I got s comment  from– Author Haroon Rashid . He is the author of these beautiful reflections.

Thank you for this inspirational piece of writing.

Let’s not take our world for granted any more! Savvy

All of You!

‘Precious Soul’ Artwork by Savvy Raj

Your smile is your soul signature
Your voice is the vibration of your energy
Your speech is a channel of communication
Your intention is the story of your purpose.
Your eyes are the window of your soul
Your heart is the expression of your being
Your steps are the path you create
Your actions are the enabler of deeds
Your body is the lighthouse
Your spirit is light.

You are precious.

All of you!

On Being



When  things seem to turn chaotic
When all seems a little askew
When challenges seem to surmount
When life seems a little too dreary

Choose to believe
There is hope
Believe in the good
And be the good!

The tree speaks for itself…

The tree above signifies the connection

Of how the microscopic characteristics

Relate to the macroscopic structures.

The tree speaks for itself…

Overall ensuring a form and identity

That speaks of structure and integrity

That can withstand stress & pressure

Erosion & the aging processes.

The tree perhaps is shriveled & stark

Within its roots the winter wilts its will

Yet the tree upholds itself in tenacity

Branching out to balance itself.

Standing strong and proud

In the autumn of life

In being all it needs to be.

The tree speaks for itself.

Birthing ideas

A beautiful post on Germination of Ideas by my dear friend Ali Anani brought me to spring forth with some of my reflections.

Birthing ideas…

Ideas find their own way to germinate
At times they stay dormant almost invisible and untraceable.
And sometimes they emerge out of nowhere
As if they have a mind all their own.

So whether there are plenty of ideas or one is starved of ideas.
It matters not where they originated from…if it is the mind or heart spaces.
But it matters what path they take how they are applied?
What seeds they sprout in the emergence?

And yet, an idea that remains undeveloped, unappreciated today becomes a genius breakthrough someday.

On too much and too less

Too much of liberty and free will
At times may lead to aimless explorations and confusions.
Too less freedom leads to slavery and subjugation.
Too much thinking can create stress and be overwhelming
Too many ideas can be hard to contain.
Too little fodder for thoughts leads to bland existence.
It’s our choice actually…
Are we to live or simply exist?

Is there a paradox of enrichment?

Is overdoing a crime
To answer this, I ask
Is there bad in the good and good in the bad?
Too much of anything will lose its charm and character.
Appreciation declines and contentment reduces.

As it all turns to excess!

So I believe in equanimity that comes in finding equilibrium
Moderation is the key.
Too much sadness is unbearable
Too much happiness may lead to boredom.
For in too much of the good times
Values are lost and things are taken for granted.

Let there be a balance
In thoughts words and deeds
So there is neither depression of deprivations
Nor extravagance in enrichments.

Guess like ideas find their way to shoot in suitable time in time.

Like life itself, ideas also know how to balance and counterbalance themselves in life and living.

Life itself is a great idea after all!

What say, aren’t you one?🙂👍
