On learning

True learning happens when we realize we are the teacher and we are the student.

And life teaches the greatest lessons without anyone uttering a word or at times, in just the sheer presence of a good soul.

In every path is a learning awaiting an awakening in the acknowledgement.

Learning is never limited

It is endless and ever regenerating itself.

A Dance Of Thoughts





Imagine space not as something that distances us
But as a liquid connection
That allows resonances
That dances on its own frequencies
Of connections that speaks  for itself
Expressing  emotions
Living life
In the infinite abundance
Of Interconnects in resonance
To this quantum coherence.

What do you see?Day 3

 

 

spirit-of-dance4jpg

Hello my dear readers, Every day for three consecutive days I have been sharing one of my own paintings from my Artworks Collection.

Here is my Painting share on Day 3:

Please write the first 3 words that come to mind the moment you see it

Every painting has been shared without the title. I would love to understand what your meaning is for the painting. The next day I will reveal my original title and intentions for the painting.

Lets together see if what I have tried depicting through my painting has reached you. Or better still you may have your own interpretation which I would love to read. Pls do share.

My painting share on Day 2 is

Titled : Vortex

Random impressions in the expression.

Signifying the dance of thoughts in the space creating a vortex through the patterns formed in the dynamics of the flow.

Deeply appreciate the amazing creativity that flowed from all of you for this post.

What was quite unique was how many attributed this to flames and fire . I suppose it had much to do with the color red. It was beautiful to acknowledge that every word you used to describe the painting sets off on a serious of trajectories in contemplation showing the vividity of our unique thoughts.

I look forward to reading your words on today’s artwork.

When wisdom flows

When wisdom flows

It sees no borders that bound

Humanity speaks for itself

Beyond the east or west

To let go of the trivial niggles

In the unity of understanding.

Of the bigger picture…

There is much wisdom in integration, in finding meaning in the divergences.

What a poet relates to the truth in humanity.

What a scientist relates with theories of relativity

Are all drawn from the same well,

Of cosmic vibrations,

Of conscious awareness,

Of the eternal truths of life.

Where wisdom flows

There is Universal consciousness

Savvy

Here is a beautiful conversation I came across between the great minds, of Albert Einstein and Rabindranath Tagore…..when the two met and spoke at length.

Do take time to read this interesting dialogue between them in this article link below.

Life teaches you learn.

Came across this profoundly touching and valuable take on life and how it teaches us lessons in living.

Sharing it here today.

A poem by
Jorge Luis Borges

You learn…

I checked about this poet and learned more about him on Wikipedia….
Jorge Luis Borges Acevedo was an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator, and a key figure in Spanish-language and universal literature.

If you interested here are some of his other works… Short stories: The Aleph, The Library of Babel, The South, The End, The Garden of Forking Paths,

To write is to express

And emote your feelings…

To read is to explore

And experience the writers work

Every time…

In the sharing is the learning.

A writer can speak much with a few words

Or wax eloquent with charming flourishes.

Whatever the way whenever it touches the heart…

There is something acknowledged.

Sometimes great learnings happen in the sharings.

And Life thrives

On teaching and learning

The teacher who says he is a master
Is no master at all.

A teacher is the one who teaches
What he has learned in life…
To teach is to learn some more!

To teach is to simply impart the learning in the sharing there is learning to imbibe.

Life is after all a great teacher
As it is the nature of life that masters it all.
All are but students in the way of life.

No one is perfect
No one knows it all
No one has mastered it all
Wisdom flows from living life
Everyone is a teacher in a way
Every one is a student in a way.

Let’s all remember
To own up to ourselves
The way we are
Flawed or not
Scarred or not
But thankful as we are.
Gradually we are strengthened in gratitude.
Acknowledging the preciousness of life.
And Life thrives…

Writing : A healing practice

WordPress says I have crossed 400 days of continuous writing and publishing now.

And it is a great motivation personally to me. As sometimes a few words are hard to come by and then there are times when a river of words flow…

There is so much learning in simply putting thoughts down in a structure.

In the way, they flow

In the way they arrange themselves

From our thoughts to the words

The choices of perspectives

As they appear and form

To convey what we want to say.

As I continued to write

Early every morning

I found myself creating a space for me

A time that stands still

In the silence of thoughts

And in the dance of reflections.

This time has been a dedication

For the writer in me

In unravelling and understanding

The power of love for writing

And the potential of possibilities

In patience and perseverance.

And coming away with the realization

That to write a few words every day

Whether in a poem or prose

Is truly a beautiful healing

For our mind heart and body.

Creating anything takes energy

And in expression is a release.

In contentment and intention.

In gratitude for the inspirations.

And ever grateful for the support

Extended here by my readers

And a special mention

Goes to the WordPress family

Whose encouraging likes & responses

Paved this journey of words.

Thank you🙏

Purple Daze

 

Surreal vision, silken dreams

Silver sky, hues of blues

Serene spaces beyond places

Known and unknown

Purple daze, violet lake.

Ethereal vision entwined passions!

Enchanting sight, purple light!

The colour purple symbolizes many things like mystery creativity, romance, royalty,  luxury, pride and peace.
It is the colour artists are often fond of.
Spiritually, colour purple and violet assist in the expansion  of awareness and in connection of deeper consciousness.




How many shades of purple have you heard of...
Here are some variations of Colour purple… many of which you can find in the beautiful picture above.

Lavender,  lilac
Periwinkle, purple
Heather, mauve
Orchid, amethyst
Iris, violet
Boysenberry, mulberry
Sangria, magenta
Plum jam, raisin
Grape wine
Eggplant purple.

And if you are the kind drawn to colour purple and violets…
What is your favourite shade?

Crosswinds

A painting by Savvy Raj

For every you, there is another you caught in the crosswinds

In fact, there could be many more reflections of you…life will throw you the hints

Fanning the flames only arouses the spirit

To arise and evolve more than we give merit

To deeper levels of conscious awareness

Breathe in the wisdom of knowing in all fairness

Of the freeflow of movements as it unfolds

The crosswinds breathe fire of life into souls

To breathe in the the energy of consciousness sublime

Trust the trysts of destiny in the eternality of time

To have a reason all their own

Cause it is preordained like seeds of life already sown.

Like a river flows…

Like rivers are meant to flow
For it to meet the sea
Nourishing the earth along the way
Gushing forth with the water of life.

Let us flow through life
Exploring and experiencing
Meandering through many facets of living
Nurturing it with heartfelt love.

For life is like the river
We are meant to flow
And not stagnate and perish
In doubts and insecurities.

Like a river trusts itself in the flow

Merging into oneness eventually

Moving forth constantly in time and space.

Flow in faith like a river flows!

Hopefilled Now!

Every moment is full of potential
While in thinking about this moment
It may move on to the next moment
That is full of hope again!

No moment is empty
It holds the truth of the creation.
Every moment is precious
Enough to never to take it for granted.

Natures fan

Looking at the fan like spread of this plant

Got me thinking of how wonderous

Are nature’s way of showing

Us how to live ….

In its arrangement of structure

There is a trustful abundance

Of spreading and expanding

Without fear and constraint

Yet deeply rooted to the core .

I just felt like cherishing this lesson.

I decided to take a photograph

In inspecting the picture closer

I was inspired to see the beautiful flow

Of so many shades and hues of colours

In those unassuming fan shaped leaves.

How much more subtly can nature say

Live life flowing in such a graceful way.

Mind over matter

The Comprehending Mind

The mind can see the bigger picture

Beyond the niggling bits

It can construct inspite of the constraints.

In a sea of jumbled words

All it needs is a little bit of structure

At times with just the first and last letter in the right place…

The scrambled words gets unscrambled.

The capacity to comprehend

To make sense and understand

To put together the pieces

Is in the deciphering ability

The human mind is truly amazing

In being able to see the words than mere letters.

In being able to analyze in prediction

Of the ensuing possibilities.

In hearing a sound and predicting the next.

In decoding arrangements.

In creating meaningful coherences

Perhaps there is wisdom

Then, in the well known words.

Mind over matter!

Cells and us!

Cells and us!

Irony of our times
In the name of connection
We are truly disconnected
We are celled to our phones
Caught hook line and sinker…
Glued to a metal contraption
That’s overtaking our lives
Living in a imaginary world
We are feeding on bytes
While reality bites
Haven’t we taken
A bite of more than we can chew?
Savvy

Here is an animation by Steve Cutts …that brings forth the stark truth of our times.

Colour of emotions.

If emotions were tubes of colours
The way we paint every day
The way we live our lives
The way we think and express
Our own experiences in being.
Will be a riot on the canvas.

Envisioning in the seeing…
Flashes of brilliance in bright yellow
Of optimism and cheer
Sporadically surging joy and ecstasy.

Going green in connectedness
Contented lines flowing in trustful acceptance
Or moves markedly hesitant in fear and apprehension.
Arresting artistry of living life in loving kindness

Explosions of reds marking anger
Or in delusions of grandeur in aggression.
In ingenious masterstrokes in fits of rage
Of imagination running wild.

Colour of Purple in projecting pride.
Of passionate perseverance to detail
Or a certain aloofness in respectful reservation.
A sense of ascension and royalty.

Shades of blue in thoughtful flow and serenity
Or organic spaced out zenful zones
Of mindful movements in the making.

Yes there is an emotion in every colour
As colours are but tools of expression
Of the ever changing moods of man
How colorful is the spirit of our soul.

Every colour plays a significant role
Like in the wheel of colours
So are emotions that appear
In the wheel of life.
Each plays it’s part.
All matters to the whole.
