Be anchored be balanced.
Life has a way of arranging itself.
Trust your path is meant to be
Almost to invisibility in subtlety
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Express with every cell of your being the magnitude of your being… cos that’s what you are meant to do here.
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…”
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!
