To the truth of you
Live in this now
And all is well.
To the truth of you
Live in this now
And all is well.
Living life well includes taking care of our temple of our being.
A few habits worth inculcating for a lifetime of wellness…
Getting up early
Drinking enough water
Avoiding junk food
Avoiding excess sugar, salt & spice.
Moderation in mobile phone usage
Thinking positive thoughts.
We are all a work in progress
Lets be well.
And stay happy inside out.
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 ❤
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.
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
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.
I listened to my heart
As it shares from within
And I write them out as words
Sometimes as verses
At times its measured
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
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.
Cage not the heart
Of those who dream of the yonder
Beyond the clouds, over the hills
Far across the horizon their soul
Seek not stillness
Search not silence
Stillness moves you
Breath in stillness
Pray in silence
Own your stillness
It is Peaceful.
Sharing a thought provoking read I came across today.
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.
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.
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.
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.”

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.
