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!🙏
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.
Naṭarāja 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.
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
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 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?
My artwork today!
Sharing an interpretation…sent by my dear mother.
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!
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.
