On writing

Grateful for this moment
With this day I complete 300 days of writing continously and publishing my works on WordPress.

Gratitude for the creativity from within and thankful for the experiences that allowed me to go into witness mode.
As a writer there is a space for thoughts to collect and flow as and when you feel like it.

This gathering of thoughts is moments of reflections in ruminations
Of life experiences
Of circumstances
Of happenings
Of situations
Of silences
All resounding reverberations in the responses to the resonances.

Writers need to be grateful…
Writers without pressure
Are at ease to allow thoughts
To seed as they germinate
And settle as they arise in time.

A far cry from spoken words
That simply must happen
When the speaking happens
For it its often relentless in the flow
Unchangeable and undoable

My gratitude extends

To writers and my readers alike

For in the flow of these words

Forged are many friendships

Linked in through these inked expressions.

For the buds of creativity blooms and thrives

In support and appreciation

So grateful to be able to write.

Acceptance

When life pans out
All the colours of the spirit and soul
Just as much as the joy’s in the hues and tints.
There are many shades and tones that challenge…

The path is interspersed with light and dark
Reflections of light
Dance and disappear
Like the passing clouds…

At times an incessant downpour of density
Like unrelenting thunderstorms
Even flashing lights through without respite
Excesses have a way of wearing itself out.

Like the colours of nature
Are known to balance themselves out…
Accept to blend and flow
In the seasons that change

And yet stay clearly distinguished
Maintaining the beauty in their vividity
Know the night moves on to the day
All is in flow in the circle of life.

Spare a thought

Would you spare a thought
For the way your appear
Yes indeed
People spend millions
For the way they look
Beauty is big business
Image consultancy is huge now.

But would you spare a thought
On the way you make another feel
Your words
Be it in written or spoken
Have immense power
To hurt or heal
For words leave lasting impressions.

Tune in to the way you sound
Check your pitch and tone
As you speak to another
Reread the words you write
Remember words live on in eternity
Think twice and check
If what you write can make a difference
To someone somewhere

Spare a thought
As you take a step
Every step leaves a trail
That another may follow
Choose to step well.

Thoughts to action
Words to deeds
Each play a role
For all are significant
In life and living.

A dance of infinite wonder

A bird, a tree & a mountain

Far above at the top of the tree
The birds perch themselves on the branches
Ready to fly on moments notice
They are light and free

Deep in the ground the roots of a tree
Growing in the thick of things
Amidst the densely packed earth
Digging deeper in stability.

On higher ground the mountain rests Gradually building upon itself.
Or chipping away itself to erosion
Witnessing it all as the world whizzes through…

As the birds fly away
In search of food or when predators strike
And the trees bears fruits
As roots grow strong.

Life and living have a reason to be.
Witness the wisdom playing through
Every whiff of the wind, every bit of stillness
Every sway every bend every move
Every thing that is was and will be
For all is a dance of infinite wonder.

Who are you like

The bird

The roots of a tree

Or a mountain

What do you resonate with?

Being thankful

Do we remember to thank every day.
Yes most days perhaps not always. Sometimes life can be tough too!
Are we grateful to life?
Yes deeply grateful
But we often take it for granted too!

A reminder is sent along
In the most unexpected turns of events
Sometimes to value what we still have
To remind us to let go the frivolities
To spare a thought for the blessings
And offer a prayer for them.

And thus pause for a moment
In gratitude for the good and the bad
And all things in between
In knowing all is well
As all is meant to be.

What to let go

There is a heaviness in thoughts

That accumulates in time

Holding on to anything

Creates dependence.

Learn to let go!

What can you let go then?

For starters…

How about anger and vengence

Grudges and resentment

Remorse and bitterness.

Each time you let any of these go

You breathe a sigh of relief

For you make space for life.

To lighten your self again.

You can create your own ease of being

To dare and dream once more.

Without doubts and restraints

To pull you back.

Then let go of irrational fears

That keep you down.

As you detach and let go

Of things that weigh you down.

You begin to express with all your heart.

You will realize the dreams

That matter most to you.

Let go of the unneeded things.

Let go of the unwanted fear.

Let go of stressors that threaten your health.

Choose to be well and full of love

And choose to let go, be light.

States of being

What is happening to our state of being

Our air is impure

Our waters are polluted

Our seasons are erratic

Our forests are fast disappearing

Our land is reclaimed

Our food is contaminated

Almost every kind of food and medicine

Is adulterated.

Our fruits are ripened with chemicals.

Our rice is turning plastic

Our vegetables are genetically modified

Nothing feels real anymore

What is happening to the real?

Is anything authentic at all?

We are living in a virtual world

What is pure and what is contaminated?

We are living in a world of unethical practices.

How do we stay aware?

To spot the differences

To find the real among these fakes.
We are sadly in a world without ethical practices in businesses. We need to find ways to sustain our world . It begins with each of us. As each step to change for better and find solutions starts with understanding the issues up close.
