Power of Human Spirit.

Strength to defy & dare destiny in the face

Of danger destruction and devastation …

Comes from a deeper conviction that creates

Courage to rise beyond catastrophes …

The heart has the capacity to deal

with almost anything … as that is how our life is

wired to cope and heal.

Expressing through Arts is a power within us.

In empathy with care and compassion

It is an act of kindness in realization of the oneness.

That what hurts you is actually eventually hurting me …

Your pain is my pain

In conscious awareness

I can help you heal

Your troubles away in faith

And hope for a better tomorrow for us all.

Windows of the Soul

Waltz of the Eyes

If eyes could speak
They would say a thousand words
May be more
Yes eyes speak more than words can tell
Have you seen eyes up close
They say much more

There is defiance denial
Hurt and humility
Fear and pain
Sadness and confusion
Longing for approval
And anguish of anxiety
There is judgement and approval
Brazeness and courage
Hope and trust
Mystic and magic
Enigma so magnetic
And yet there is also
Surprise and innocence
Charm and grace
Kindness and Generosity
A Light of Love
For life and living.

Waltz of the Eyes indeed! Speaking much without words that portrays the undeniable truths of life .

How much life experiences can speak through these windows of our soul! Check it for yourself … so much to read in there. May be you can see much more ….do share!

Perspective.

The light shines from above in congruence

On top of the mountain

As much as on the land and trees

The light knows not the difference.

It’s purpose is to shine …

The snow capped mountains receive it

And disperse it in reflections.

And the light melts the snow

To let it flow like a river.

While it’s a different path for the tree.

The tree takes it to grow and bloom

As the light helps the flowers blossom.

Nature teaches amazing grace

To flow as much as to grow

To let go as much as to flourish

Lessons that come in the envisioning

Source is the same

It is all in the choices

In the knowing

What to do

With the source…

All is a perspective of light!

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!🙏

You and your thoughts

You and your thoughts

You think that you own your thoughts
Well, your thoughts are not your own
They come through you, not from you
For you know not what your next thought may be.

For all matter is energy that flows
In tunes of nature of life
You are the channel that plays an important part.
You are like a vessel, that contains a thought.

And in that time that you hold the thought
Before it passes you by
You have a choice of steering it
In your unique way as you are meant to do

For thoughts may come
And thoughts may go
It is what you choose to do
with the thought,
That makes all the difference.

To pause and reflect.
To notice and and witness.
To observe and take charge.
To sense and to know.
To appreciate and let go.
All is with in and around you.
You and your thoughts.

The third tilts the tide!

When in friendships two is company and three a crowd…

A small story.
Recently my young cousin shifted to my city to work. She had found a suitable job and her first step into settling herself was to find a place to stay on her own.

Although she stayed with us initially, being independent by nature we knew soon that she would be keen on finding her own place.

Understanding her need for an independent living we helped her scout one hostel which seemed all fine except the time and cost of a commute as it was a little distant from her place of work.

Soon she realised she was wasting money and time. She started networking with her colleagues and she landed an offer from one.

The girl in question was staying in a tiny non-descript place barely enough for two but pretty much close to her office. She asked her to move in with her and share her rent and other expenses. Realising the convenience of proximity to her place of work as she could simply walk to the office and the fact that the rent was truly affordable my cousin agreed to shift in.

Being a very careful spender my cousin was all excited. Moreover, she was elated in fact that she happily shared how good it would be, to not have to spend so much time travelling as well.

We too were glad she found a place near her workplace and decided to help her shift on a suitable day which happened to be yesterday.

Now life is known to be unpredictable.
Between the then and now many things can change. Such is the nature of life and living.
But a young girl coming away from home and hearth with a suitcase full of dreams in her heart would hardly be the one to realise the vagaries of life and living.

It so happened, that after all the eagerness of finally making it to the new home, a rude shock awaited her. The girl who had offered her to share the flat brought in one more colleague to stay. But it wasn’t never discussed mutually between. This gave rise to a lot of tension between them. My cousin felt cheated that there was no transparency in the dealing. Moreover, there was no space for the third person in an already cramped room.

Now my cousin was braving tears trying to tell me the whole incident this morning. Although I don’t suspect her tenacity to tackle the situation one bit and find a solution to her problem I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her. My heart reaches out to her as I write this. I wish her God speed in finding the right home for herself in this city.

A few reflections on Life and living

So much about trust issues here
To trust another is about believing
But a belief that must be valued by the one you place your trust one.
Think twice to read the signs and place your trust in people carefully.

  • (My cousin decided to vacate her hostel even before the actual date of vacating to save her travel expenses).Sometimes not doing things on an impulse but waiting it out by observing the developing situation and then taking move helps.
  • Life can be challenging moment to moment. So much for erratic development and behaviour changes in a person. But people are different by default and sooner one acknowledge this the better it is.
  • A great lesson in being careful. So before taking things and people for granted no matter how close it makes sense to set certain things straight on record.
  • Living independently at a young age can certainly be challenging but the wisdom is to sense the challenges as they come and be strengthened by it.
  • When I shared this story, there were three new perspectives.
  • Firstly the introduction as the centre line becomes a connecting line that gives shape to the 2 semicircles.
  • Secondly, while 2 dots can only make a line the 3rd one can give it varied forms.
  • Thirdly any duel cannot be judged without a 3rd referee.
  • The entry of a 3rd person ( child) makes the family complete.
  • All is truly in a shift of perspectives. The 3rd is a PowerPoint. It can balance or tilt the whole to one side.

As for my cousin, it is a valuable lesson learnt for a lifetime in hindsight. And I believe she is only stronger by it. Wishing her the best of luck!

Have you had any experience where the third person has changed the course of your friendship?

Do share…

Aflame In Purpose

A sense of purpose is necessary for your wellbeing as much as your success.

For purpose conjugates a direction than an aimless wandering.
To consolidate with a focus, is to connect yourself to your own existence.

It’s a knowing that you can direct your energies to fruition

Amassing your experiences towards self expression.
That gives a meaning to your very being.

In such a practice the purpose is reinforced.

Strengthened by the force of intention.
All in a dedication to connect with the core of being who you truly are.
