This Moment

This Now’ is a just a flicker
In the vast endless space.
A fleeting moment,
That travels backwards in Time.
Never to return on its one way path.
Never blink your eyes, lest you miss
The beauty of the Moment.

Some moments well captured in this time frame.
Stays afresh like the etching on a rock.
A single moment, so potent
To change the course of your life.

A bliss or curse, depends on the Awakening Awareness of its Transcience.

Seek an understanding mind
Make no effort to stagnate,
As flowing is its innate Nature.

Senses wandering free
Unmindful of the other
Thoughts floating like clouds
Unconnected actions of body n mind
Aimless moments, effortless wastage
Unaware of the flow of Time.
Like sand seeping through the fingers
‘This Now’ dissolving in the past,
Creating a formless future, at what cost?
Potent moments become futile.

Detachment is different from disconnection.
Awareness is not aligned to alienation.
Make an effort to be consciously present
Not to miss a moment of breathe,
‘Be in the Now’ to witness the magic of Life.
Anjana

Sharing my mothers reflections here on the value of the moments. She wrote this after reflecting on my earlier poem

The Potent Now! https://savvyraj.com/2018/09/26/the-potent-now/

Just added some images to go with her thoughts.

A share of Kindness

My Dedication in Celebration of the World Kindness Day yesterday.

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. – LAO-TZU

Such profound words of wisdom from the great master Lao Tzu!

Always believe that when you share kindness with another, more kindness springs up, whether it’s in your thoughts, in your deeds, or in stillness too. Whenever you give with a compassionate heart and the receiver accepts with gratitude and appreciation, you have both made a foray, knowingly or unknowingly, into the dimension of empathic living.

There is a great abundance of learning to share.

Learning is never limited, it is endless and ever regenerating in itself. What I perceive to understand and to confidently and gratefully share with the world in my unique way, will in itself become known in the hearts of the ones I shared it with. This is the power of positive change. They will eventually distribute their own interpretation of that knowledge in their own creative way with another, and so on.

Then the incredible happens! With every distribution, there will be depth and dimensions a new, which in turn will pave the path for greater clarity and wisdom. However, the choice of walking the path is one’s own!

When one person shares from the heart, the result is always a regeneration of trust, confidence, and love in abundance.

With increasing love, there is a decrease of needs, and with that, there is greater contentment and fulfillment.

A few things to keep in mind are:

  • Share without motive.
  • Share without ego.
  • Share with gratitude.

The ones who bestow with acceptance writ in their hearts are the ones who know the value of letting go to reap its rewards.

Rewards that cannot be measured by time or days, as they abound in the infinite wisdom; a circle of conscious connections.

Your baby’s dress.

A dear child’s dress speaks to a loving mother…

Weathered and worn
I lie here today
In this moment
That you look at me
I know so many thoughts
May pass your way
Memories that only can fathom
Of a time passed long by

You and I
Have lived through
Those days protecting
Your dear child
Through rough weather
Your mother’s affection
I can sense till today
As you would lovingly
Clothe your precious baby
With me

I know we are privy
To those special times
When you child lived in me
Played and fed with me on
How many times
You would carefully wash dry
And iron me out
And keep me clean and warm
All ready for your baby to wear

Your baby may never know me
But you and I
We have a special bond
A recall of those memorable times
That we shared
Until one fine day
She outgrew me.

Today you found me
As you left me
Deep in the closet
Among the old and discarded
But am I glad to be caressed with love
And photographed with joy
And reminisced about…

For in this moment
Your little gesture
Touches my being
For I feel I have served my purpose well
Thank you as well
For choosing me
And caring to keep me with you
All these years and maybe more!!!

With love
❤An old baby dress ❤

Found my daughter’s old baby dress and I was suddenly transported back in time…

Today my daughter is indeed all grown up. I took a picture of this little dress and shared it with my daughter who studies in a land far away…

The nurturing years of her childhood flashed by and I sat down to pen my reflections…

The Potent Now!

Every moment matters
As every moment is dancing
In the potency of the now.
Pulsing and vibrating
With life in the movements

Stillness is but a dance
In the dynamics of flow
In betwixt& in between
Pause rest and action

This now has reflections
Of both past reminiscences
And future possibilities
Wrapped up in its being

What you see in this now
What you intend in this now
What you choose in this now
Is what you receive in this now!

In every now
Simply care to…
Think well!Choose well! Do well!

Do the best you can! Because You Can!

Honour the Body

Your body confidence begins with honouring the body. Find ways for self care that nourishes the temple of your abode. Treat yourself well.

Savvy

The Art of Self Management.

Honour and value the body.

It is truly the only one you have.

Disrespecting the body

Creates disease from within

Managing the self is to value your potential.

Integrating the spirit and the soul

Is to align the thoughts and actions

And to realise the infinite possibilities

In balance of the heart and mind.

Care for your body. Nurture it .

And take control of your health.

Respect the body for your life is in it!

There was a time

There was a time when the day started with a greeting at the light of dawn
Now it all starts with the light of mobile screen

There was a time when travellers used to chat with one another.
Now traveling is to update status and post photos.

There was a time when writing meant using a pen and paper.
Now all it mean, is clicking of buttons on a keyboard.

There was a time, when postman were eagerly awaited.
Now that is all a thing of the past.

There was a time when movies were a family affair.
Now Netflix on phone makes everyone watch on their own.

There was a time when children learned from parents.
Now it is children who teach it all to their parents.

There was a time when holidays at home meant board games & conversations
Now all the catching up is on What app and Facebook.

There was a time when life had time to catch up with one another.
Now life runs after time to catch up with time.

With the advent of times,
The sense of family is fast disappearing.
Each lives for themselves and prefers their own company.

Each spends and cares more for their gadgets than people around them.
With the apathy and indifference that abounds,
The Social recluses we are all becoming confounds.

Such is the time we live in today…
Wonder what future we have, to reckon with?

The Spirit of Trees

I admire the spirit of trees
& want to live learning from it.

I want to be one with the tree
But I do not want to be a tree…
For if every man becomes a tree
Who would be there to nurture &water And witness their beauty.

Trees need us and we need them. There is synergy dancing between us.
As we care to nourish the nature around us.
We are nourished back by nature.

We are born to live along with trees
They are life’s longings for itself
Like ours sons and daughters
They are fragile and strong
And share untold wisdom within
And live sharing of themselves.

They protect us with their shade
as much as they nourish us with their bearings.
In the strength of the their interconnects we realise
The value in the interdependence.
They are because we are
We are because they are!

I deeply revere the spirit of these trees and bow down in gratitude to thee!🙏
