On Authenticity

Being  authentic  is about living to one’s true self, being present  as you truly are with confidence and inner conviction.

Being  authentic is about  acceptance  of all of you and being  able to acknowledge all your emotions even the difficulties in handling your emotions.

Authenticity stays in your truth often open to the guidance of the intuitive intellect.

Authenticity  is about complete integrity in life and living.

When you arrive at being comfortable being yourself,and in front of others, your gifts will shine through and you will make a positive impact on this world.

All it takes is being the authentic you!

Breach and Trust🐋

Have you seen the whales breach
In such confidence they soar upward
They even maneuver a twirl
And fall back in complete trust
In the support of the water below.
How beautiful an example can mother nature give
Of unfolding grace in trust and confidence

Much of our lifes story can be just as beautiful.
When it is in a flow like that
When we rise in success with faith
Being completely confident of our purpose
When we surrender in complete unflinching trust
Knowing there is support and love flowing in the roots.

Why are humans rising and touching the stars?
Why are we progressing phenomenally
Yet why are we crash landing at times?
Why are we failing?
While it is the faith in ourselves that may take us upwards
Bu the lack of trust and support for one another brings us down.
Perhaps we need to learn from water
How to be flexible in its fluidity.
To be adaptable in its buoyancy
And then we too can rise again with every fall.

For inspite of every ability we have …
Support from our family and friends
Matter more than we know!

Wouldn’t you agree?

When you have faith in your roots then every leap of faith is of a trustful knowing
That no matter how far you reach you have a home to come back to!

When the odds stack high…

Life throws curveballs at you when you least expect. Sometimes it may be your own expectations that are set high. Simply adjust your attitude to life and let go of unnecessary expectations.

Choose instead, to keep the faith, trust in yourself and hope for the better. Life begins to shape up differently.

When you are feeling downhill
When you are feeling demoralized
When you feeling disappointed
When you feeling demotivated

Just remember everything is meant to change.

What is today lasts not forever.
What is hurting today will become a faint memory in time.
What seems to be important will lose its significance.
What is stressful will begin to ease in time.

When the odds are too high
They must even out soon enough.
Trust time to keep moving
Have faith, for one makes way for the other.

The circle of life goes on.
Hope is here to stay!

On trusting

A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers at several hundred feet above the ground. He is slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.

Everyone down were watching him in bated breath and were tensed. He slowly reached the second tower. Everyone clapped, whistled and welcomed him. They shook hands and took selfies.

He asked the crowd “do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?”. The crowd shouted, “Yes, Yes, you can”. Do you trust me he asked? They said yes, yes we are ready to bet on you.

He said okay, can anyone of you sit on my shoulder; I will take you to the other side safely.

Everyone became quiet. There was stunned silence.

Belief is different. Trust is different. For Trust, you need total surrender.

This is what we are lacking towards God in today’s world.

We believe in God. But we don’t trust Him.

🙏

On Trusting…

Trust is a matter of letting go

Letting go is a matter of faith

Faith is a matter of feeling

Feeling is a matter of knowing

Knowing is a matter of awareness

Be aware in trustfulness.

And so it goes…

Unshackled Souls

Cage not the heart of those who dream of the yonder
Beyond the clouds over the hills
Their spirit seeks to wander.
Across the horizon, their soul belongs

Seek not to hold them
For they are way ahead of you already
Too swift are their thoughts
Too far away are their hearts
Too distant are you from them already

Not for them, the mundane chores
Not for them, the worldly spoils
Not for them, the earthly desires
Not for them the meaningless wants 

Seek not to find common ground
For they have moved on way back in time
Neither in dreams or in dare
Can there be a parallel
Seek not, as your paths are not meant to cross.
Let them go, as it is meant to be.

You Can!

Painting & Artwork by Savvy Raj

You Can!

If you only could see the myriad patterns and colors of life you will live to create

If you could believe in the vividity of the moment

If you could only sense the magic that life is meant to be

You will…

Paint your life with joy in the flow!

Unwrap this gift of life lovingly!

Just believe you can.

You can!

Something to think about!

How much are we what we write about
Our thoughts are simply quite complex
Sometimes we are a bundle of contradictions
We may begin to write on a whim
As fancy may catch us sometimes
But we are steered by the thoughts that we think
Sometimes remembered reflections
Sometimes in propulsion of passions
Sometimes aimless fired by default
Sometimes in self awareness
Combining experiences in the life and living.
Within set standards in conformity or in whimsical sentimentality
Where is the turning point?
Where we assemble our thoughts
Amidst the jumble of arising waves

What distinguishes our thoughts
That flow from us in words
To arrange itself in this self arranging life.
In our fractality there is fragility
As much as rigourousness of rigidity
Raising righteousness in morality
Of conscientiousness in the wake of integrity.
And there is no denying the dedication
In single minded focus
In pursuing a thought home
Manifesting through words
Conveyed with a purpose.

In feelings and factuality
Peeling through the layers
There is much of us in what we write
And yet so much a figment of pure imagination
The words may carry our thoughts
But take on a form of their own…

Shaping up as stories
Letting there be a mystery
For all to read and fathom
Of how much is true
And what is fictional?🙂

Trust Life!

All is well

In trustfulness

In trusting the divine will

Life manifests its flow

Come what may

Destiny and fate

Turns in favour

Of the steadfast faith

All bearing witness

To so many inexplicable miracles

Of mystical manifestations.

Trust life & keep the faith

All is well!

There is always a meaning…

The search for meaning
Is never in vain
There is always a meaning
To life and living.

One or a million reflections
Maybe 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
Maybe more…
Can bring on the inner genius
One or a million works of art
Maybe more…
Delivers a masterstroke.

Each step is of value
And somehow significant
To someone somewhere
As much as…
To the ultimate whole!.

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

Trusting the trysts with truth

As we dance through the apparition of appearances

Of assumptions in the amalgamation.

All that is real may be an illusion

All that we believe to be is perhaps real.

And our tryst with the truth…

Continues…

Savvy Raj

Evey rememberance has it’s own take of perspectives…

Today reading another poem by a wonderful fellow blogger Didi, and I remembered this para from my earlier poem Tryst with the truth.

Gratitude Rocks

Gratitude rocks and how!

I happened to read somewhere that…

If you can find three things to be grateful for every day

And are able keep at it for say at least 21 days or so

You just might find yourself in a happier space

Try it for yourself!

Here are a few entries I feel like share from my own personal gratitude journals.

Soul Signature

Creativity abounds
Artist delivers
Critiques interpret
Art flourishes.

Every piece of art is a creative signature
Of the soul of the artist
Artworks retain its interpretation within
As they leave the chamber of creation.

Once the art is set free and open
Making it visible and vulnerable
To reviews, critiques or applause
It is open to manifold interpretations.

The inference is never complete
Nor is it free of judgements in assumptions
For how can it be so?
It is nature of art to manifest counter views.

These very varied interpretations
Give life to the art
For as new meaning is born
The art flourishes in its wake.

IT’S A HI TECH LIFE!

Touch a button and everything is downloaded or uploaded. Isn’t that the trend everywhere now whatever the field, this push button convenience seems to be taking over, whether it’s publishing, the kitchen, home front luxuries or travel or communications entertainment etc? This is convenience at its best where there is
minimal or no effort and the result is plain to see. Whatever happened to no pain no gain? Anyway I am not complaining here, hi techno gizmos you are most welcome.

The thing that is a cause for concern is that with all this easy way of living that technology brings forth there is a paradigm shift in the thinking of this new generation of hi tech users who are so hooked up to these gadgets of convenience that they expect it to be so in all others areas of life too… The emotional ,physical ,personal aspects of life cannot somehow become machine like and that’s how it is seeming to be.

Many are aware of their growing sense of inadequacies in mutual relationships. The lack of care and concern due to time, and work pressure is somehow seen to be adjusted and neutralized by hi tech gadgets in our households. So much that the person lets the products of convenience make up for his personal presence or absence in family situations and experiences.

Similarly if one notices most students are averse to listening to another and taking in information from another as their attention span for personal communication is overridden by convenience of Internet, chats and social networks and group calls so why bother.

What happened to good old teaching? Actually the educationists to prefer going tech savvy as they feel that they would be lagging behind otherwise.
The issue for concern is larger than all these little details, slowly machines have replaced humans in most spheres of life. The advent of machines is real and right there in front of us.

Every house in the city and even villages are connected with Internets, so there is a network of telecommunications system without any hazard control measure in place.

In most of the developing countries the health standards and safety for mobile towers, radiations hazards in private personal and public spaces are totally disregarded. People seem to be more interested in getting the job done quickly… with lack of time stress levels are on a all time high and no one seems to be bothered if there are reports published once in a while by some concerned individuals about the dangers of radiations from all these devices of modern technology. The page is turned over with not even a response as no one seems to have the time. ‘ Let someone else to do the job or let’s wait and see if it’s really that bad or so far I haven’t experienced anything. So why bother,’is the care a damn attitude prevalent across most sections of the thinking population.

Lack of empathetic responses makes us more and more mechanical in our approach and we seem to be losing the humane side of us. This is exactly what is happening on a large scale. People are growing indifferent and unapproachable, shrewd and over efficient for a purpose. There is no genuineness left in most relationships as well, everything is for what can I make from this.

So whether its education or otherwise the trend is to conveniently download information and present your work as done instead of contemplative thought and deep understanding. There are very few individuals who are not caught in this web of technology and their numbers is dwindling…

It’s time we wake up to core values or they would be lost forever. An e-card will wish you on your birthday and a cake and roses will be sent to you by post but there will be no one to eat it with. Just you and your gadgets how about it?

On Integrity

Treat yourself well
And treat others equally well!

Be true to your word
For both matter a whole lot
Value your sense of self esteem
But value another’s right to theirs.

True integrity lies in…
Practicing one’s own preaching
Being nice is not a weakness
Worry not a loss of control

For a little consideration
Goes a long long way
Let there be dignity of being
As it makes it easier to reach out

No one is an island
Every one is necessary and important
For who they are and deeply entwined
In the grand plan of life .

Be mindful and conscious
Of what you feel and say.
Be aware of what comes your way
And steer clear of the unnecessary.

Stay true to who you are
For you are best at being you
For Integrity speaks from deeds not words
Make sure your actions justify your words

And sense the calm you feel in your heart
And watch the ease of being when with another
All it needs is a little care and concern
For the world in and around you!
