Building peace

My recent poem ‘The Middle Path of Peace‘ evoked many responses. The following verses are my musings to a comment … Especially the one by a reader on the necessity of war.

I propose here a moment in peace

Through the following verses…

Hate is never meaningful, love is

War is never meaningful, peace is.

To confuse war to be the answer for peace
Is the greatest fallacy of mankind
For the war never truly ends once begun
It sprouts the seeds of hate before it is over.

Yes there are wars fought
When equality and freedom is forfeited
As a privilege of a few
When oppression and chaos reign
When pushed beyond resilience
When backing down is not an option
For it is then a matter of self preservation and survival.

To confuse victory in war
Is the mark of inexperience
No war comes away unscathed
Casualties are a heavy price to pay
Let alone the truth of anguish and scars
Wars are never the answer.

Pain and hurt leaves the vengence behind
And revenge brews in spurts to
to strike someday

The heart of man is like a sponge
Ready to absorb that which flows
Allow the light of love to flow in
Let thoughts of peace seep in
Through every vein.

For love heals the hurt and pain
And empathy helps move beyond revenge
Make an Art of life and living
For War is just a never ending tragedy.

Wars are fought for business sadly

There are no ethics to war.

To fight is not bravery.

True bravery is in finding a way

To avert the war & build peace.

Nature of nature

The nature of nature…

Nature is full of vibration.

Never truly silent

For it is alive with pure energy.

Always a wise companion.

In moments that you need

Some respite and understanding.

Its very nature shows the way.

Seek nature to energize your being.

Seek its freshness of spirit

When the world gets too weary

Every once in a while.

Nature never competes.

It is never in a hurry.

Nature never rushes you

It continues on its path

As it seems meant to!

Allow your own nature

to blend with the bliss of nature.

Sense its synchrony

Envision its endurance

Marvel its magnificence

Wonder at its wisdom

Connect with its composure

Understand its inate balance.

In itself by itself with itself .

In and around you.

Know you are nature

And nature is you.

Ultimate Oneness in the diversity

Such is the nature of nature.

On usefulness

The search for meaning

Is never in vain

There is always a meaning

To life and living.

One or a million reflections

May be more

At times can lead

To a miracle in the making.

One or a million drafts

May lead us to a perfect design

One or a million words

May be more…

Can bring on the inner genius

One or a million works of art

May be more…

Delivers a masterstroke.

Each step is of value

And somehow significant

To some one somewhere

As much as…

To the utimate whole!.

If something seems to be useless to one person, there is always a possibility of so many who may find it useful.

Savvy

Often profound meaning arrives from the most mundane and the so called ordinary moments in life and living. For the truth is out in the open but our overworked brain often misses these simple truths for it chooses to search for meaning in the complexities. But what is wonderful to know is that all is never lost… for every step makes a difference matters to the whole some how somwhere.

On Perspectives

What seems to be, may not be

What is, maybe not.

What is an assumption, may become a contradiction.

What seems factual, may not be actual.

All is a matter of shifting perspectives.

Savvy

The above image was shared by a friend on social media… it is not a video but simply a still image.

The question is do our perspectives shape our experiences

Or do our unique experiences shape our perspectives….

Just thinking aloud.

Life comes a full circle

Who has not felt ripples
At some point or another
Life comes a full circle
With its curves of ups and downs.

In the course of living
There will be many ups
Where the ego is boosted
And the spirit seems to soar.

And in the same breath
There will be many downs
Of grief despair and loss
Sometimes beyond compare.

As life continues its path
Between the nowhere and somewhere
Between the pain and pleasures
Know there is an art to living.

Call it the wisdom of moderation
To stay clear of tilting in the extremes
Of emotions that manifest
In life and living.

Sense it all, both pain and pleasures
For what is life after all
A little laughter to fill your hearts
And let your tears flow if they must
Just don’t dwell in it for too long…

Move on, learning to flow with life
You are no mountain to stand unmoved
Or stagnant pond collecting debris
You are filled with the wonder of life.

Just like trees, shed your pain
Like dried autumn leaves
Let go of your worries
Allow yourself to flourish again.

You are meant to flow
Like a stream in the river of time
You are meant to grow
And evolve along the way.

Choose to care and share
With your fellow travellers
For each life matters, somehow somewhere
To one and all, along the way!

Savvy

Wrote these verses for someone and anyone who is going through a rough patch.

Hoping for the best and sending in loads of goodwill.

SOUL CAGES

Titled: Unshackled…An Artwork By Savvy Raj

 

 

Born free we truly are, but we learn to evolve, to move beyond the soul cages of our own being!

When we learn to appreciate the freedom that is ours for the taking, we realise its value in deep gratitude!

‘Do not do this…Do not do that …’ often these are the words which are entrenched in our brains in the name of effective and good rearing.
We are told for goodness sake to avoid disappointments at all cost and to stay away from failure. Often our programming is tracked for success without a doubt. Superb indeed! A mindful way of being, which acknowledges the good and disregards the bad.
Great, then where is the issue? There should be none at all! However, the reverse is the case… and often as well!

For example… a child very lovingly brought up has to experience and grow in a world of dualities. There are all kinds of people that make up this world and varied experiences to be had in this journey of life. Preparation of exigencies is thus a necessity after all.

Acceptance and Adaptability

This is the key that we mould from within, as we evolve towards unlocking the secrets of a successful life.

    • Dealing with what must be dealt
    • Bending in the flow where it is necessary
    • Standing up for something or someone you care in support
  • Steering through the crisis that shows up without notice

All these takes nerves of steel and resilience of composure in calamity. And never forget that smile from the heart and all of your being.

As life is like that … a taste of bitter and sweet all spiced with the nicest surprises yet tinged with necessary learnings along the way.

Freedom is being who you are

Everything alive has a right to be, all that they manifest with the uniqueness of their thoughts. There is always room for expansion while accepting another as they choose to be.

Self-imposed restrictions may be a discipline necessary for one to learn, while for another it will stifle them if forced in even small measures. Caged by its own thoughts… the soul of the being needs to set itself free from limiting self-reflections to a spectrum of colours beyond!

 

    • Break free from Soul cages of convictions that hold you in chains of restrictions And evolve with your resurrection.
    • Remember the world is free, as free as you want it to be. Just take care that along the way, another’s joy you do not steal.
    • In the acceptance of the free-spiritedness of another being, there is the unshackled lightness of your own being!

Remember you are born free…

To be all that you choose to be!

Journey on…

Journey on until you meet yourself
For embedded along the path
Of many echelons of time
Life leaves imprints in the living

There will be many experiences
That makes your soul cry
Out in pain and pleasures
Of sensing connections
Beyond this lifetime.

Journey on nevertheless
For in meeting the many
Moments that seem enmeshed with you
You are closer to yourself

In the travelling along

Comes moments that seems
To speak straight to the heart
Of the truth of your being

All is familiar, there is deja vu

And you know the scenario only too well

For you know you have been right here.

All else is immaterial and immaculate.

You won’t need any guide
Then as you partake the joy
Of this meeting with this being
You know you have found your self.
