Embodiment of the ego in its essence
Humbled by life time and time again
Caught hook line and sinker
Wherever we go
Wherever we are
The web follows us
Connectivity is a boon and bane
For there is always the peril
Of being caught up deeply without knowing.
Minutes melt into hours
Before you free yourself from its clutches.
In its tempting interactions..
Unaware are many, of its effects
On the health of humanity
Radiation, fatigue and syndromes
Affected can’t put down their phones
As people seems helpless without it.
It’s time to draw a line
To regulate time spent on the net.
To be aware of the dangers of high speed wi fi connections.
Distance and shield from harmful (Emr) radiations where ever and whenever possible.
Switch off phones at night.Switch off phones at night.
And your wellbeing will improve.
Make sure to spend time out in the real world.
Before the web snatches all your time.
The whirling wisdom
The search for being
In a knowing balance
Of within and without.
The gaze is never a stare
The moves are never a dare
In fact the flow is sublime
One leads unto another
Nothing marked nothing missed
Nothing focused nothing lost.
In such a state of flow
Where wholeness of being
Is the strength of a circle
That creates unto itself
There is a knowing
Of a space within
An inward glance
Into the souls calling
The sounds of Silence.
Behind the Beautiful
Are often inexplicable truths
Behind the dare
Are often unbearable circumstances
Behind the victory
Are often countless defeats
Behind the smiles
Are often gutwrenching griefs
Behind the wisdom of silence
Are often heartbreaking stories.
Behind the scenes of glory
Are often those unspeakable truths
Of lives lived and living
In hope beyond the despair
Of wins beyond the losses.
Of success beyond the failures
Like each facet is necessary
For the diamond to truly sparkle!
Each phase is full of purpose
For everything matters to the whole.
Each of us create Circles of being
As our life changes
We create new circles in living
We are constantly recreating
The interpolation of circles
Every circle interconnects
In these circles of being
Is a sense of community
Creating the ease of flow
Creating confusion and chaos
Of life lived along the edges
Of life lived protected in the core,
Of lives transacted in the transitions
Of lives lost and gained.
Let us know the strength of the circle
Let us respect its flow in the flexibility
We are, but dots in these circles of being
Every dot matters & completes the circle
And can begin a new circle of being.
Check out this amazing idea by a woman using the strength of the circles for providing a basic human need for the homeless.
Thinking is open to possibilities
Thought is already channelled
To be fair and square
Thinking is about the now
Emerging in this moment
Thought is the past
Over and done.
Yet every thought matters
As it may enable new ways of thinking…
And so it goes
Until these loops form a pattern
And hit a sweet spot of light
Illuminating a new pathway!
Isnt life like a game of chess
Where every move matters
Where every step creates opportunities
Where without a plan we may be flummoxed
Where a sense of direction creates progress
Where there is anticipation of possibilities.
Where there is a passion for purpose
Where dedication and perseverance.
Where attentive alertness makes all the difference.
Where awareness and keen observation matters much.
Where every decisive move can impact profoundly
And yet with all the planning one could be checkmated.
Life is meant to be played on for there is no looking back.
Where having a goal is important to fulfillment of living.
Yes life is like a game
Where joys of the journey is greater than success and failures.
Nature teaches us much
The first lesson
Nature is patient and never in a hurry
All takes its course in time
As a blooming bud
As a fragile flower
You cannot force them to flower
Patience and perseverance is the key
Nature is abundant
It gives and receives
The beauty of nature
The fruits of nature
Is its gift.
It bears much too
Nature is full of resilience
Teaching lessons of living
So full of grace and dignity
The third lesson
Nature balances itself
Time to time
When life gets too tilted
Nature plays on
Its courses through
And unearths its fury too!
Never tamper with nature
For nature exacts much
Unleashing its wrath
To beget its equilibrium
Treat nature well
Both inner and outer
For every thing is part of nature
And nature will thrive.
Dance is the innate nature of Creation. Nature is dancing all around us…
Rain is the dance of the clouds
Flowing is the dance of the water
Waves are the dance of the ocean
Melting is the dance of the ice.
Breeze is the dance of the wind.
Swaying is the dance of the trees
Blooming is the dance of the flowers
Sprouting is the dance of the seed.
Flickering flames,the dance of the fire
Murmuring, the dance of the birds
Dunes are the dance of the desert
Twinkling stars are the dance of the sky.
Thoughts are the dance of the mind
Actions are the dance of the body
Atoms are the dance of space
Evolution is the dance of life.
A dancing heart enlivens us to fine-tune with our surroundings , adding joy, self confidence and positivity!
My humble tribute to the dancing spirit of my lovely, lively daughter with a heart filled with the dance of Love. 💃🏻💃🏻💐❤😘😍
Few days ago on International Dance day… I received this beautiful poem by my dear mother.
Sharing the few verses above penned by her and her words to me as well.
It truly made my day!🙏
Aren’t we often biased about our brain’s workings?
Is creativity only by the so called right- brained?
Is attention to detail only by the logical left-brained?
We need to see beyond these narrow definitions
To broaden our sense of the spectrum of creativity.
Our creator has bestowed us variety in creativity.
We can be lyrically logical.
Analytically artistic and much more.
There are scientifically proven facts
Spouted from words of poets
And poetical manifestations
Of empirical evidences by scientists.
The proof of concepts
Lies in our own nature,
In the fractals of life,
Myriad and mystical
Yet mathematically coherent.
Our brilliance may shine in one field
Because perhaps we haven’t
Yet truly tapped and glimpsed
Into all of our own potential abilities.
Let’s never belittle the true self
For beyond the facade and ego dramas
Our every cell vibration is deeply tuned
To the forces of nature and nurture.
We are far more than we could ever know
We have all imbibed it well in our subconscious
It’s just a matter of time before the awakening
Of the stream of conscious energy in the flow.
As a dance educator I have very often come across statements like ‘Mam, I have two left,’ which meant they were so clumsy that they cant dance . Or that they have no balance.
This is truly just a perception…
If only we can understand there is a dance and a dancer in every life. And the dance goes on!
After all we all have a heart that is beating right now!❤
I have heard people often talk of the students of arts as right brained as they are more artistic . Or a science student classified as left brained and logical.
However there is so much more to people beyond these biased compartmentalization. When we begin to see beyond our limited beliefs we open ourselves to the potential within .
Our innate potential simply needs awakening to realise, the truth of who we are and what all we can be….
You are not the same
You are changing
In every moment
The change is creating you
That changer is within you !
You are the change, the changer and the changing you seek.
The wisdom is in…
Seeing the structure in the chaos and relate to the rhythms in nature.
Following along the infinite beginnings all leading to the same place :’Your true self’.
And in a knowingness that allows you to exercise choice in free will to be who you truly are.

Life is beautiful and yet challenging in itself!
We define our life
In how we respond to life.
In moments of merriment to melancholy.
The changes bring along the challenges.
And in it is the wisdom of the now.
To remember the interdependence
And know we are not alone!
To know life is simpler in the letting go!
Many deep-rooted issues that we choose to bury within manifest themselves in time as diseases of the mind and body.
We are better off in the sharing…
When things are too tough to handle
There is no point in holding it all.
The remedy is never in suppression.
But our world is happier wearing masks
In its facades the truth submerges
Only to rise like a Phoenix
Unexpectedly at the most inopportune of times.
Time to accept our vulnerabilities,
And find the strength from it.
Commend a share from the heart.
Support and appreciate their efforts.
Build a sense of community to help
For the truth is we are all in it together.
The healing is in the sharing
In the very ability to share
The first step of healing begins
For often in brushing under the carpet
The debris gets collected in time
And manifests grief in unexpected ways…
In the very vulnerability of life
Is the strength of living.
Kudos to ‘Brave-hearts’ for sharing their stories.
For it can inspire hope to someone somewhere…
Who needs to know, all is well in life and living
And hope is here to stay!
To dare as much as to retreat
In the ebb and flow of life
Waves teaches us much!
To reach the pinnacle of success
Is one thing
But truth of nature is, it changes.
So the glory must recede in humility
Such is the way of balance.
There is no gain the holding on
There is grace in the letting go!
Such is the circle of life .
Sharing these beautiful perspectives.
With some pictures that went along with these thoughts
The first two lines are enough to keep you going…
An incredible way to look at GOD!!!
When GOD solves our problems, we have faith in HIS abilities.
When GOD doesn’t solve our problems HE has faith in our abilities.
God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs . . .
-those of the canary in 14 days;-those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
-eggs of ducks and geese in 28 days;
-those of the mallard in 35 days;
-The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)
God’s wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. . . .
-The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction.
– No other quadruped is so made.
– God planned that this animal would have a huge body too large to live on two legs.
– For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily.
-The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
– A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
How wise the Ultimate Creator is in all the works of creation!
-Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
-Each orange has an even number of segments.
-Each ear of corn has an even number of rows
-Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
-Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.
The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.
-All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks.
God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day.
Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed.
The lives of each of us may be ordained by the Creator in a unique way, all we need to is be willing to keep the faith.
Gods creations are interweaved and interconnected like he made our brain and heart, and it can function optimally when it moves in unison as one integrated whole.
Let us keep the faith and reach out in trust… in ourselves and beyond!
Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil — it has no point.
Yesterday the flower was in full bloom
Filling the senses with unabashed beauty
Today it gently wraps unto itself
Knowing it’s deed is done
Letting itself recede into the background
Retreating as a way for another to bloom.
There are moments in the sun
For one and all
Such is the circle of life
How gracefully the flower accepts
The truth of life and living.
Every flower leaves a lesson behind
As it disappears into the sunset…
You are born to bloom
Life life lovingly!
