Feed the soul with love
Fire the spirit with enthusiasm
For the body never lies!
Every now well lived
Paves the way for more.
Every moment is a juggle
Between past and the future
The challenge is the experience
Or the expectations of it.
It’s a little slice of our life
We hold in this now
Let’s choose to make the best
Of the moment at hand.
They say it’s what you do that matters
But it’s the thought that counts
Can we choose one thought over other
Yes we can in mindfulness
Being aware is the first step
The choice rests with you
For you are your thoughts
As much as your deeds .
Laugh as much as you breathe
For laughter is a great healer
Laughter strengthens and protects you
For laughter is a stress buster.
Laughter can diminish & relieve pain
And renews the spirit with energy.
Laugh to lighten the day’s worries
Laugh to relax the muscles.
Laugh to infuse good energies
Laugh as much as you can….
For laughter can shift perspective
Make the moods lighter
When you laugh you brighten this now.
So keep smiling ,find your inner child
Every breath every day!
Do you need something to happen
To be happy?
Does someone have to make you smile?
Do you need something to be done by another to feel joyous
Do you want others to impress upon you for you to be cheerful?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions …
Do you care to motivate another to be happy?
How many times have you smiled for another?
Motivation to be happy works best when its intrinsic.
Yes you have this life you are living
Make sure to make your moments happy 😊
Yes everyday is different
Life is not perhaps easy for any of us.
Sometimes the night is long
And light shines a little later than you may want it to
But know there is always a day after the night…
And light is meant to shine on your path once again.
Be happy with yourself first!
For your happiness is all around you!
Trust yourself and your life to live!
And live life lovingly!
Compassion is all about acceptance
It is inclusiveness in expansiveness
It is acknowledgement in patience.
Its not just a virtue.
It is about being kind to all beings.
It is about consistency of practice
It is heartfelt embodied action.
Such is soul of compassion.
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.
Grains of pulsating energy
Vibrantly dancing and emoting
In the sands of time
Moving bodies reacting and responding
Patterning uniquely in every now
To the tunes of nature of life.
So very fragile in the making
So very vulnerable in the sensing
Yet so very strengthened in the living.
Fractals fields of energy transformation
Designing and redesigning itself
Creating purpose to life & living.
Trust light to shine itself
Trust the shadows to find light
All is not dark forever
For light shimmers on shadows
What’s hidden uncovers itself
At some point or the other
Trust in time
Patterns are meant to shape
And change itself along the way
What shines has shadows
And shadows shimmer too!
Keep the faith
Shadows will find the light
All is meant to be well and bright.
Moving in Awareness.
From chaos to clarity
Swimming through it all
From peaks and troughs.
Every thought sets a pattern
In fact in a loop
Of interwoven scenes
Some that seem relatively strange
And some unidentifiable
Every loop jumps and lights up another
In the intersection
Is thought quantifiable at all?
Thoughts come and go
But what if we reflect on our thoughts
Like witnessing our breath, as it goes on
Thoughts may manifest on their own.
When we are mindful of our thoughts.
May be just for a bit of time every now and then
We flow along and cultivate an awareness of its nature
We become gradually mindful of the now.
In time, a sense of connect develops
In conscious awareness of our intentions.
We are creating spaces between our thoughts
And pauses in our reflections.
When shift is known by the mind
And felt in the heart
Then every thing moves
In conscious awareness.
When our lives feels overwhelming
By emotions running a muck
Let us take care to remember
Every thing is going to be alright!
When our words felt lost
They were lost in the incessant chatter
Where we went about creating noise
But never learned to sustain the world.
Yet all is not lost
Hope is here to stay
Let’s truly believe
Every things is going to be alright.
In these times of anxiety.
Let’s keep saying
All is meant to be well
We need to assure ourselves and others
More often than before
Everything is going to be alright!
Meetings are great learning spaces…
Here are some interesting observations from office group meetings.
Office meetings are no different
From groups of human getting together
Human behaviour has an extensive range.
From shy to extroverted, bold to introverted
Myriad patterns of personalities
Manifest in business meetings.
There are those totally in charge
Setting the tones driving the agenda
There are those who are out to showcase skills at every opportunity.
There are others who are peacebuilders.
There are facilitators who are also great delegators.
They are resourceful in the absence of a leader.
There are those brimming with enthusiasm.
They are the ice breakers who reduce tensions.
There are the creativity enhancers.
They step beyond the box and think.
They can bring tangible and intangible to light.
They can be ambiguous or realistic in views.
There are contributors who just say a few words which make people rethink.
They may have voiced their opinion only after much thought.
There are those who blether on and on without consideration for others.
For, they love to be the centre of attention.
They forget it is a meeting with a time & agenda.
Then there are the team players who actually enjoy meetups.
They are adaptable, versatile and happy to help.
They are the bond that binds one and all.
They are juxtaposed with the reserved and silent ones.
They are those who are uncomfortable with the attention.
They are the wallflowers who may have many views but are quiet in a group.
They are great to tap into to hear alternate views.
Have you noticed those who are physically there in a meeting but yet not there?
They are lost in a realm of their own
They are wanderers who are free spirits actually.
They hate to be restrained in one space for even a while.
There is just one issue they hardly pay attention and hence may be unproductive at meetings.
Have you also met the pessimistic who always think it won’t work?
They can bring down the spirits and the morale of an entire team.
There are also the argumentative who always have a counter view without thinking.
Then come to the detail-oriented
Who never leave anything to chance.
They come prepared and are diligent.
They are at risk of seeming too intense.
They, however, can pinpoint the errors.
Their questions can bring clarity to the team.
Finally, there are those who rarely attend.
They saunter in without an agenda.
They have no idea what the meeting is all about.
They have never bothered to find out either.
They still can be channelised through proper directions.
Lastly, let’s watch out for perpetual latecomers.
They always may come in full of excuses but with the right interventions & time management skills.
They can be great contributors…
How many of these types have you observed in your office meetings?
Every person is unique, & likewise, every meeting is thus equally unique.
Through a positive approach, when utilized in the right way for the right skills…
Everyone can then, greatly contribute to the productivity of a meeting.
If we only could understand
Our so-called imperfections
Are pieces in the giant puzzle
Of life and living
They are meant to match
Another jigsaw somewhere somehow.
We are meant to piece together
Collaborate and correlate
The meaning of life and living
Of existence beyond the bread & butter.
Of what makes us survive
In spite of the insurmountable.
If we could only begin to see
The beauty within us
We would learn to appreciate the beauty
That surrounds us.
We are perfectly defaulted
We are blessedly imperfect
As we are divinely manifested
To be the way we are.
We are but mirrors in the reflection
Across dimensions of space and time
Such is the eternal truth of our being.
We construct and deconstruct
In our imagined cosmos
The truth of our own existence.
We bounce and reflect our perspectives
In and on to each other.
We shine our brilliance.
We mirror perceptions.
We are vulnerable and yet volatile beings
Beaming energies boundlessly.
The task is to recognize the strength of our souls.
In our perfectly imperfect ways
We pattern our world along with us.
We are creation and creation is within us.
Our thoughts are powerful and with it
We are creating and altering the social structure of life itself.
Our world needs each of us.
To have our edges, sawed or not
Blunt or sharp
For actualising the purpose we are born for.
We are way bearers for the future
We are the torch and flame of life
Existence longing for itself.
Life can be fickle and yet very wise
The choice is ours to take.
by Savvy Raj
Moving in circles
The power of the circle is encapsulated in the very formation of pattern, speaking of integrity that is rooted to the center. Movements matter much more than we know or imagine…
In the energy of creation of a circle there is a changing movement is constant continuous and consistent yet structured in a pattern.
There is great learning in the flow that is enhanced in creating a deeply meditative motion steeped in dedication leads to the development of patience and perseverance. For circles are both complete and yet connected. In the strength of the circle and its reiteration lies the art of self-development.
In its spiralling form, there is inclusivity and expansivity.
In its cohesiveness is its stability and rootedness to its core.
In the evolution of the Circle is a collection of energy altering dimensions in space. This shift creates changes that can be felt and directed toward greater causes.
There is a depth of artistry and scientific understanding in exploring the potential in the circular formations.
Art by Savvy Raj
There is a spiritual connection in the drawing of mandala art or the whirling dervishes that awakens the inward journeys.
Every movement has a reason to be…
In the revolving universe the circular motion creates vortices, evokes energies that is altered in space dimensions and balanced in the flow.
There are many internal healing practices interconnecting and integrating the circulation of the breath and movement from yoga to martial arts that can awaken the dormant energy and bring it into a higher plane of consciousness, in the depth of awareness.
The strength of the circle
is in the fluidity of form as well as the stability of the structure.
In a circle is flexibility of flow
In a circle is the continuity of connection
In a circle is an integration complete and whole.
The understanding of the power of circle manifests with the awakening of the wisdom of change and of change is the eternal constant.
In knowing there is no change at all in the within and the without. All is in a flow in the river of time. Every life connects to everyone else.
All is in the alignment and such is the story of us as much as the sun moon and the stars and the spaces between, betwixt and beyond.
Using the power of the circle to create health and harmony in thoughts words and deeds brings forth goodwill and betterment of life.
