Spare a thought

Would you spare a thought
For the way your appear
Yes indeed
People spend millions
For the way they look
Beauty is big business
Image consultancy is huge now.

But would you spare a thought
On the way you make another feel
Your words
Be it in written or spoken
Have immense power
To hurt or heal
For words leave lasting impressions.

Tune in to the way you sound
Check your pitch and tone
As you speak to another
Reread the words you write
Remember words live on in eternity
Think twice and check
If what you write can make a difference
To someone somewhere

Spare a thought
As you take a step
Every step leaves a trail
That another may follow
Choose to step well.

Thoughts to action
Words to deeds
Each play a role
For all are significant
In life and living.

Behind the scenes

Behind the Beautiful

Are often inexplicable truths

Behind the dare

Are often unbearable circumstances

Behind the victory

Are often countless defeats

Behind the smiles

Are often gutwrenching griefs

Behind the wisdom of silence

Are often heartbreaking stories.

Behind the scenes of glory

Are often those unspeakable truths

Of lives lived and living

In hope beyond the despair

Of wins beyond the losses.

Of success beyond the failures

Like each facet is necessary

For the diamond to truly sparkle!

Each phase is full of purpose

For everything matters to the whole.

Circles of being

Each of us create Circles of being
As our life changes
We create new circles in living
We are constantly recreating
The interpolation of circles
Every circle interconnects
Somewhere somehow.

In these circles of being
Is a sense of community
Creating camaraderie
Creating the ease of flow
Creating confusion and chaos
Of life lived along the edges
Of life lived protected in the core,
Of lives transacted in the transitions
Of lives lost and gained.

Let us know the strength of the circle
Let us respect its flow in the flexibility
We are, but dots in these circles of being
Every dot matters & completes the circle
And can begin a new circle of being.

On Oneness

If our awareness begins to seek
The root of our being
We may find in its depths
Multiversity of thoughts
Rooted in faith and beliefs.

And then digging deeper
There may come a point
Of beliefs both true and false
Justifying there is a right for every left
A right for every wrong.

Every move has a counter move
Every point a counterpoint
In the balance is a counterbalance
For such is the duality in existence

And then delving deeper
As man, by far is curious of nature
Who cannot stall his curiosity to unearth,
The mystic of his own being
Begins to see the many paths that lead on.

And envisioning the duality
As an enticing dance of nature
As parts to the same whole.
Oneness emanates as the source code
Of creation in manifestation.

In conscious awakening
Oneness is a connection
Of all to the whole
For all paths lead home.
In awareness of the source code.

THREE POTS

Have always wanted to grow vegetables and fruits in our terrace garden. But not knowing much about gardening we kept putting it off.

But seeing how much pesticides are there in vegetables and fruits that we consume, all of us in the family kept wanting to steer towards growing an organic garden.

Although there are a number of show plants and flowering plants that are already there…growing vegetables was still a challenge. So we decided finally to get a local gardeners advice to help start us off on our mission.

Now having no idea about the right planters for the vegetables we have taken up on his suggestion to get 3 pots for our initial vegetable cultivation trial. If successful we decided we can get more pots .

So next came the choice of vegetables to grow in these pots .Everyone came up with the name of some of their favorite vegetables for starters.

But then it got decided that we must grow vegetables that the gardener advises according to the season.

So now three vegetable seeds are sown in these pots . Time will gradually bring forth them into view . Till then it is a matter of patience in waiting

Week 2

A few shoots have emerged…

Energy in the emerging must be magnanimous for new life life to shoot out in the open. All the potential of possibilities of creative energy emerge with this act.

But each pot has a different seed and hence will take its course in time to shoot out to life. Nature never hurries. All in good time.

Yet humans are prone to impatience There was certainly this little bit of insecurity when we were all waiting, wishing to see the hope of a new life through a sign of some sprouting or shooting of a seed to a plant.

Experiences with gardening are a trial and error.

Watering plants correctly is an important learning for plants to grow well. We made our mistakes and learned along the way .

And then we got it right!

Now all the three plants have started growing in their pots. And it’s truly a lovely feeling to watch them grow!

Can you guess the emerging plants?

Yes they may be a long way from fruiting as yet but it’s nice to watch them grow in the nurturing.

Here are some tips on watering.

Lessons in watering plants

You can apply water to the soil directly not the plants. It’s better not to wet most plants as this can cause problems such as fungal diseases -and much will just evaporate away anyway. Water gently, with a rose (like a shower head) which will damage the soil less than a jet of water and prevent much mud splashing up onto the leaves. Also it’s better to wet the ground really heavily occasionally rather than to just splash a little about more often which can make the soil look damp on top while remaining dry underneath.

There is an art to watering plants.

Gently water them caring from the heart.

You will find them awaken in response

Make sure to water them in a timely manner

Not too much or too little

Keep it flowing but dont let it overflow.

There is so much to understand

In the simple act of watering plants

In both the giving and the receiving.

Too less and they will dry

Too much and they will die.

In it lies the lesson of need for balance.

Nature teaches lessons in nurturing.

SPHERES OF INFINITY

Powers beyond comprehension

Core strength beyond speculation

Understanding an ever evolving expansion

Of an intelligence without limitation

Spheres and circles of energies

Dancing in suspended vibrations

In the infinity of time and space

All a wonder of divine manifestation.

Profound projections

Flashes of brilliance

Resounding resonances

Defining and redefining

Swirling life in a concoction

Of myriad manifestation

Each seemingly independent

Yet deeply interwoven.

Circles of Life

Creative enigma at best

Ordained in the flow

Are these Spheres of Infinity…

Engaging with this now!

Knowledge speaks

Wisdom listens.

Almost to invisibility in subtlety

Humility blends

And becomes nothingness.

Transporting the self to spaces beyond

Transcending what seems impossible.

Sensing the vibration in between

And living life in every now!

Knowing the value in the ordinary

Letting the unnecessary go

Being alive to the present

Acknowledging everything that is as it is

Engaging with this now intensely!
