On usefulness

The search for meaning

Is never in vain

There is always a meaning

To life and living.

One or a million reflections

May be more

At times can lead

To a miracle in the making.

One or a million drafts

May lead us to a perfect design

One or a million words

May be more…

Can bring on the inner genius

One or a million works of art

May be more…

Delivers a masterstroke.

Each step is of value

And somehow significant

To some one somewhere

As much as…

To the utimate whole!.

If something seems to be useless to one person, there is always a possibility of so many who may find it useful.

Savvy

Often profound meaning arrives from the most mundane and the so called ordinary moments in life and living. For the truth is out in the open but our overworked brain often misses these simple truths for it chooses to search for meaning in the complexities. But what is wonderful to know is that all is never lost… for every step makes a difference matters to the whole some how somwhere.

On Perspectives

What seems to be, may not be

What is, maybe not.

What is an assumption, may become a contradiction.

What seems factual, may not be actual.

All is a matter of shifting perspectives.

Savvy

The above image was shared by a friend on social media… it is not a video but simply a still image.

The question is do our perspectives shape our experiences

Or do our unique experiences shape our perspectives….

Just thinking aloud.

Creative Enrichments

WordPress certainly has its unique ways
Of appreciation and encouragement
To support the writers on this platform
There are stats that show up on screen.

So I am told one morning by WordPress
That I am on a three-day posting streak
At first, I was amused and a tad bit confused
For hadn’t I been posting literally every day… for so long…

But guess WordPress took its own sweet time
To catch up to my blog amongst the millions
So I too decided to play along…
Every day since then I have been publishing

A poem written afresh, simply inspired
A continuation from my previous post
In creatives emerging in thoughts.
Perhaps from a readers comment
Or better still in its contemplation.

Today as I complete a 10-day streak
I want to share these published posts
Here together in an attempt to string
These beads of thoughts together

Poetry can be the jewellery of language.
Pearls of fresh thoughts bonded into words.
Creativity strung together in a form.
Like a necklace that is adorned in appreciation.

Creativity is there within
Us all for the taking
And all it needs is a step in
In reflection and action…

It was a joy to play along
Connecting the dots,
Stringing the words,
As they came along.

Kudos to WordPress

Stats for the supportive inputs
And my amazing blogger friends

For inspirations along my way.

Here are the links of the last 10 day Post streak that I will simply call Creative Enrichments

A few observations …

These ten days I had a purpose steeped in creative enrichment. The idea was to be receptive and responsive to whatever that these posts brought forth.

And I sensed how these Inspirations came my way on its own.

A special thanks to a few WordPress writers who are involved without their own knowledge… that I want to thank here.

Perspective.

The light shines from above in congruence

On top of the mountain

As much as on the land and trees

The light knows not the difference.

It’s purpose is to shine …

The snow capped mountains receive it

And disperse it in reflections.

And the light melts the snow

To let it flow like a river.

While it’s a different path for the tree.

The tree takes it to grow and bloom

As the light helps the flowers blossom.

Nature teaches amazing grace

To flow as much as to grow

To let go as much as to flourish

Lessons that come in the envisioning

Source is the same

It is all in the choices

In the knowing

What to do

With the source…

All is a perspective of light!

Creativity & Humility

Creativity is innate potential.

Deeply entwined in humility

In every realisation of potential infinite

Creation manifests itself time and again.

So much to know and understand

So much to learn and discover

So much to explore and fathom

Lifetimes are never enough

Such is the potential of the infinitum.

Creativity is embedded and enmeshed with emotions. To create is to connect with the core and the depth of the being.

Savvy

In the flow of creation

Is the acknowledgement

Of the letting go

In the depth of creation

There is only pure potential

Where I, Me or Myself

Ego plays ceases to exist.

Expressions are conceived

In the potentials intention

They will find purpose

In the very strength of intention

That elevates consciousness

Beyond pride and prestige

Beyond fame and fortune.

As creativity tunes in to sense

The subtlest of emotion.

In the shaping and the blending

From thoughts to action

Creativity and humility

Go hand in hand in sublimity.

Have you any experience on the interconnects of creativity and humility? Do care to share.

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.

Secret of life and living 2

Secret of life and living.

Is in knowing the fragility of this now

Is in learning to view the world vividly

And seeing more than what’s visible

And sensing of the value in every moment

While understanding of fleeting nature of time.

Take no moment for granted!
