Live Life Lovingly!

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!

Creativity & Humility

Creativity is innate potential.

Deeply entwined in humility

In every realisation of potential infinite

Creation manifests itself time and again.

So much to know and understand

So much to learn and discover

So much to explore and fathom

Lifetimes are never enough

Such is the potential of the infinitum.

Creativity is embedded and enmeshed with emotions. To create is to connect with the core and the depth of the being.

Savvy

In the flow of creation

Is the acknowledgement

Of the letting go

In the depth of creation

There is only pure potential

Where I, Me or Myself

Ego plays ceases to exist.

Expressions are conceived

In the potentials intention

They will find purpose

In the very strength of intention

That elevates consciousness

Beyond pride and prestige

Beyond fame and fortune.

As creativity tunes in to sense

The subtlest of emotion.

In the shaping and the blending

From thoughts to action

Creativity and humility

Go hand in hand in sublimity.

Have you any experience on the interconnects of creativity and humility? Do care to share.

Who says?

Who says poetry is just made with words?

There is poetry made in the melody of tunes.
There is poetry that flows in colour and hues.

There is poetry in the joy of two beating hearts as one.

There is poetry in shaping clay on a potters wheel.

There is poetry is the ebb and flow of the waves.
There is poetry in the gushing streams of wilderness.

There is poetry in the chirping of birds.

There is poetry in the joy of a heartfelt smile.

There is poetry in dewdrops dancing on leaves.

There is poetry is stroke of brush on paper.

There is poetry in the heart of two dancing souls
There is poetry in the ecstatic tango of the feet.

There is poetry in the hearts of lovers uniting.
There is poetry of divinity in faith and prayer.

There is poetry in sacred geometry.
There is poetry in the elements of nature.

If we choose…

There is poetry in the magic of life and living.
And then comes the poetry of the pen to paper waxing eloquent.
For yet we love to read words to sense the unique poetry that we actually are.

Poetry is in who we are, as we are, the way we are…
As is the flow, the flow is us.
We are born of poetry of stars,
Of spaces in betwixt and between.
We are verses in the vividity.
Just as much in the subtlety.
And in the sublimity.

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.

Channelizing Creativity

To create is being you!

Artwork by Savvy Raj

Someone asked me why I dance… and I said I dance to create myself.
I like to dance in my thoughts, words and deeds. By that I mean I enjoy the harmony of movements whether in thoughts or action.

Personally, I respect and value all forms of creativity and believe in the immense value of it in our daily lives.
We are all creative beings but some have to find their path themselves while perhaps for others the path is laid out for them.

We need to honour our creativity we need to find avenues to let go express and share what comes naturally to us. In that is a healing and restoring beyond compare. Have seen a single dance light up a dancers eyes or a single song or a painting stroke change the mood not only for the viewer but for the artist themselves.

Creativity is who we are and lets never forget it. The challenge though is to understand techniques of channelising creativity in a form that is valued and shared by many and that comes from practice. It is a path of immense possibilities each having the potential for soulful connects with self as much as others.

Dancers: An Artwork by Savvy Raj

What we create is meant to be and hence we learn to channelize the flow in more meaningful ways. Just the other day standing before a painting of just two vertical lines symbolised many possibilities… a bridge, to a tube, to a scale, to a road and more… infinite mind, infinite imagination, a fodder for thought in the letting go.

Yet to channelize the thoughts is a task for many demanding ardours and disciplined approach in thinking and streamlining strategically to enhance the end product be it any art form in life and living

Creativity must never be suppressed or repressed as then it manifests in disease of the body and mind. Immense is the power of creative movements to balance the body mind and spirit.

Creative expression is the passion at play and a power of profound manifestations limitless in awareness & boundless in self-belief.

Express with every cell of your being the magnitude of your being… cos that’s what you are meant to do here.

Stay stable

A tree is a fine example of stability in life…
Take strength from it , adopt its values nourish it, nurture it.

In the knowing that all your needs and neccessities are met as you cultivate within you this tree of grounding in the stability .

Stay humble

On Humility

Stay humble and grounded
Remember your roots
For they are your strength
To know tough times move on
Leaving you solid in the rooting_
Yet flexible to flow and adapt
Knowing the wisdom of humility.
