Conscious Independence

As we celebrate our Independence day in India, may we care to value the underlying philosophy behind the word Independence … the ability to voice our uniqueness and express our individuality amidst a global platform.

Truly, Independence is a birthright that allows us to freely express ourselves, but along with it, is a sense of responsibility, a duty to empower the within as much as the world .

Channelizing the creative flow of freedom of expression to positive outcomes for the larger good is a responsibility for every individual. It is actually the simple way to create a life of well being with in and around each of us and for the world at large .

As we are after all an interdependent world even in our states of independence…. that to me is valuing and practicing Conscious Independence.

Happy Independence Day!!!

May we always Dance the dance of independence and freedom.

May we tune ourselves to connect with joys in tandem.

May we always remember and value great souls lost in martyrdom.

May we acknowledge that the strength in the interdependence is never random.

May we always respect our roots and learn to follow our inner wisdom.

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!šŸ™

Nataraja : The Cosmic Dancer

Nataraja – The Cosmic Dancer

Absolute and ultimate dance of

Being in the Now’,where

Celestial Creation & Destruction
Dances hand in hand in
Energetic, enigmatic endless flow.
Formless blending into The Form.
Gift to Cosmos. Unfathomed
Happiness undermines the
In-depth, concealed caring of
Justice to prevail, in the
Knowing of the Unknown all.
Lasya ( dance of creation) and thandava (dance of destruction) both
Merging in and emerging from
Nataraja,The Cosmic Dancer.
Oneness personified in essence.
Purity and Power as its source.
Quietude emerging in the motion.
Rare culmination of creative
Subtlety of concealed infinity.
Thathwamasi,’ , that’s the Truth.
Unknown, Unsaid n Unseen
Visions of Ultimate Reality.
Worlds far and beyond knowledge
Xceeds the human excellence.
Yearning _’To be with IT ‘ is all one can wish with the
Zeal of unwavering Faith .

This is a poem penned by my dear mother Anjana. I share it with a lot of joy as found it spiritually and creatively appealing.

I simply loved its amalgamation and the interplay of life and living just as much as the interplay of verses in alphabetical order.


Naį¹­arāja meaning“the lord of dance”) is a depiction of the Hindu god Shiva as the cosmic ecstatic dancer. … The Nataraja reliefs have been represented in metal or stone in many temples, particularly in South India as well as identified in historic artwork from many parts of South Asia, in southeast Asia such as in Bali, Cambodia, and in central Asia.(Source Wiki)

The ultimate truth is we are one and interconnected with every thing in this dance in sublimity.

Secret of Life and Living

Gratitude

How beautiful is a moment!

When gratitude touches it.

Gratitude is a great teacher

Of wisdom in life and living.

For gratitude changes life’s path

Making it all seems worthwhile

Gratitude is truly a blessing

Making your life meaningful.

Cultivate an attitude of gratitude

Towards life of all forms of being

Sense the blessings in Gratitude

You will thrive in gratitude

Cultivate Gratitude

Living gratefully

Everything we do , everything we think we own, all returns back to the source some day. In knowing this truth we need to sense gratitude for what is … and that is one of the secrets to living life lovingly!

Art & Artist!

Art emanates from the sublime consciousness

Art speaks forth the language of hearts.

Art conveys the nature of life.

Art portrays the perspectives between.

Artist communicates with an interpretation in free will

Artist expresses reflections in a flow.

Artist connects the divinity in subtlety.

Artist breathes life into the Art.

How can you separate the art from the artist?

Towards Clarity

My artwork today!

Sharing an interpretation…sent by my dear mother.

Towards Clarity
Converging from all directions.
With unformed shapes, unlinked thoughts. Merging at the centre as a Guiding Star
The sign of hope, light and promise for a positive tomorrow, filled with joy n cheer.

Have a wonderful day!

Rhythm of nature

Dance with the rhythms of nature

Be like the sun and sky all aglow

Show up like the sky without absence

Always allowing the light to brighten the day.

Feel one with waves dancing with water

Flow like the gentle rain and let go your worries

Emerge refreshed having soaked in the energy of water.

Feel the breeze of the cool winds blow.

Sense the grounding from the mountains and trees

And stay firm, ensconced like the arresting mountains do!

Witness your thoughts that drift in like tidal waves

But rest yourself rooted like the tree that you sit below.

Feel one with nature and be blessed by its wisdom

Know that endless are the learnings from Nature …

Care then to adopt the rhythms of nature.
