Live Life Lovingly!

Spaces between…

As the spider weaves its web…

It leaves us in awe of its perfection. Spacing between the webstrings
Interweaved in the intersections.

Speaks to us to understand
The spaces between our steps.
For those gaps in between
Holds us in place, as we are.

Lessons from nature,
Resonate now, more than ever
To value the spaces and pauses
To balance our very life and living.

Be in love

When you are in love…

Love makes you hear music, you have never heard before,
Love makes your steps look like a dance.
Love makes your heart flutter in abandon.
Love makes you see the truth of beauty in the ordinary.
Love is the gift of grace from your soul.

Be in love. Be in love
With yourself and the world around.
And make both a better place to be in.

Be in love with life…

Live life lovingly!

A piece of sky

Photography by Savvy

My piece of sky…

As the winds blows
Waves of patterns
Flowing like fluffs
Of cotton clouds
Waltzing in the sky!

Once upon a time

Once upon a time

Long long ago

In a far away land

Was a sweet little child

Who used to have a fairy tale book

Read to her by her dear mother

Every night as she was tucked into bed

She would hear a story from her mom

But there were clauses to this plan.

It was a given thing between the two

The story had to have a happy ending

The story includes people and animals

Or even a garden of fruits and flowers

Enchanting stories of courage and dare

Of compassion and care

Of humanity at large

In goodwill and love

Or even seemingly silly stories

Of life and living in general

Of fun and frolic.

But there was a pact between the two

Which her mother followed to the tee.

Simply there was one area

The story must not go to or be

Of things above in the sky.

Although her mother was too drawn

To explore the mystery of space…

But the little girl felt a little too lost

To fathom space and beyond

May be it was just her nature

Or perhaps there was more to it

Of why she was uncomfortable with unknown space!

Leaving a few musings in contemplation…

Are fears rational or just an illusion in the making?

What are irrational fears?

Are they there for a reason?

Do fears manifests from past lives?

Do fears eventually help us someway?

How does one overcome these fears?

Can we grow out of our little fears?

Do you have any experience of fears as a kid?

Have you chosen to outgrow them?

Have you managed to face your fears?

For life awaits on the other side of fear!

States of being

What is happening to our state of being

Our air is impure

Our waters are polluted

Our seasons are erratic

Our forests are fast disappearing

Our land is reclaimed

Our food is contaminated

Almost every kind of food and medicine

Is adulterated.

Our fruits are ripened with chemicals.

Our rice is turning plastic

Our vegetables are genetically modified

Nothing feels real anymore

What is happening to the real?

Is anything authentic at all?

We are living in a virtual world

What is pure and what is contaminated?

We are living in a world of unethical practices.

How do we stay aware?

To spot the differences

To find the real among these fakes.
We are sadly in a world without ethical practices in businesses. We need to find ways to sustain our world . It begins with each of us. As each step to change for better and find solutions starts with understanding the issues up close.

Thinking Thoughts

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!

In this now

Imagine each moment in this now
Is brimming with possibilities
Each moment is in a choice you make
The way you feel, the attitude you carry
Its charts its course of how it impacts you.

You are immensely powerful
In making the most of the moment
Your intent to see and visualize
Can change the moment for you
For moments are as you see them.

Choose to see life with a love-filled heart

Choose to see hope beyond despair

Choose to see the joy reflecting through you

Choose to shape and sculpt the moment.

Choose to smile from the heart

Choose to channel the energy of this now

Choose to steer in positive thoughts

Choose gratitude for this now

For all that you are, were and can be.

Journey unto being!

A Digital Painting by Savvy Raj

In the farthest path without a trail

The soul might find its root of being

The heart and mind will set its sail

And stir the soul into its state of knowing

Beyond the path, that’s homeward bound

The journey is the test of the perseverance of will

To reach the home roots of many lifetimes that the soul has found.

Wise to persevere to reach the place unknown and known

The path is forgotten but will be forged on just fine.

When in faith the seeds have been sown

With a will to reach, crossing the trials beyond yours and mine … 🙂

A Beckoning Sight!

A beckoning sight indeed!

The awesomeness of pink delights
A tree, a path, a bench in the sunlight.

Lovely sight with a spark of romance
A breath of freshness, a hint of fragrance

How unassuming is this place
For a bit of peace, a perfect space.

To cherish this view with care
All I need is a moment to spare!

Romance of the light!

What is it about the twilight sun?
Colours blending in the contrasts
Like the day and night waltzing
Ever so gently with each other.
Time makes space in its steps
To sense the surreal

And what to say of scenic hues
Of the sky the sea and the sun.
Of icy white glistening with snow
As the light shimmers with water
Watch the snow melting
Gently in the flaming light…

Golden orange hues of the sun
Casting itself over the sea.
Reflecting through the clouds of gold
Blending the burning brilliance.

In the dance of the dusk and dawn
A visual treat appears for all to see
To witness the ethereal everyday
In those moments in between
Even if it’s just for few fleeting moments …

Twilight hour is the romance of the light!

Point of intersection
Sacred and sacrosanct
To the evolving
In thoughts ideas or deeds.

In making and breaking
In marking or masking
In chanelling or containing
And changing in the exchanges.

The element of space
Creates the challenges.

Emergence of a point or idea
Creates ways for the dance of evolution
Moving it towards convergence
What matters is the path and the way
It chooses to do so.

In intention and contention
Significance of its impact
Matters to the whole
In the freedom lost and gained
As a means to an end
Or in a journey of wonder.

In this dance
Of emergence and convergence
Containing and contracting
In nullifying on impact
Or expressing and expanding
In projecting the possibilities
Creating scope to flourish or finish
Gradually or abruptly.

In the course of such a convergence
The meeting point then diverges
Into the experiences of the being
In thought and action
Creating a muscle memory.

To take off on its course
Treading over or gliding through
To new paths in the possibilities.
In birthing or bouncing off
The intersections create energy

Within and around
And in the spaces beyond
That continues to impact as waves
Deeply even in the subtlest of ways.

The Dance of the Words

Like a pen striking words on a paper
The first draft there is much to write
But in the second there is discipline
As words are omitted to drive the point.

In the ensuing edits
There is order and structure
Helping matter get the message
In the conveyance of the creativity.

Like in art so in life
The dance goes on
Sometimes making a point
At times lost in translations.

The mood and setting may change
The course of improvisations
Sometimes blatantly
At times in all subtlety.

In depths of consciousness awareness
Arrive valuable insights
On spacing or styling
On perfecting the portraying
On emotions conveyed
On composition and construction
On overall content
Until the points are perfected
To express openly

Relentless as is our thoughts
Such is way of the words
Our imagination is infinite
All pervasive and expansive
And in all that’s said and done
There is much left unsaid
And yet while the words flow on
The dance goes on…

Nature is listening!

Yes… the reality is stark
Deforestation everywhere
Forest fires and climate changes
Disappearing rain forests

Global warming, polar vortex
Extinction of rare species
Food and medicine adulteration
Air water and noise pollution

Materialism leading to corruption
Repercussions of rising terrorism
Mismanagement and misconduct
Leading to apathy and war

Exposure from radiation
Indifference on an all time high
Alarming toll from disasters
Both natural and man made.

Is this what we have done with our life?
Time is slipping by, to make a difference
In being concerned, to save our world
To become a responsible world citizen.

Making some changes to our lifestyle
Supporting and sustaining green living
Volunteering our lifeskills
For our environment needs us now.

In taking time out to help out
Much can be done by each of us!
Manage available resources
Reduce recycle and reuse.

Learn to sustain and support it
Plant trees and reduce emissions
Nurture the world with care
For nature is listening!

Savvy

Every step towards a more caring kinder world matters!
Each of us can do much from wherever we are

All it needs is awareness and action
In responsible ways
That helps and heals our world
Yes its truly hightime to nurture our mother nature!

Giving way for the new!

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!
