Finding Time

Ultimately it all about finding time

For a…

A little laughter to keep you light

A little kindness along the way

A little walk for your good health

A little whiff of fragrance divine

A little tune to hum through the day

A little step to carry it through

A little tap down the memory lane

All to align you to your happiest self

Tommorow’s World

The world we see today

Is changing rapidly

New norms are setting in

We are in a state of flux

From fighting pandemic

To accepting lockdowns

As a way of being

People starved of socialization

Are appeased by bytes of reality

We are attuning ourselves

To being masked at all times

Practicing distancing and being indoors.

But life goes on no matter what

Sensitizing us to new ways of living

What matters most then is

Is that here we are, inspite of it all

We learn to align with ourselves

Moving with care and compassion

From here on empathy guides

Leading us to knowing ourselves.

This is the truth for us all

Of tommorow’s world.

An Expression Of Manifestation.

Image credits: Fb Group Unique Trees

Saw this photo on a Fb group share and I couldn’t help pause and wonder about this expression in manifestation.

How beautifully it has orchestrated its creation

How artfully the artistry of photography has captured this brilliance of creation.

Every where we see nature emotes in magnificent awe-inspiring ways, the wonders of creation… in the trees, be it in a little leaf , a bud, in aging bark & trunk of trees , in the cloud paintings up above in the canvas of the sky or even in the dance of the waves in the sea…ūüôŹ

Walking regularly

Eating healthy

Avoiding junk food

Avoiding excess sugar, salt & spice.

All in good faith!

The power that creates

The omnipresence

Is all knowing consciousness

That is there to take care

All of creation

Cannot be without a reason

Trust the purpose

Keep the faith

Faith is all there is

Without faith nothing is

Art of Movement

Personally speaking, I have a deep interest in the art of movements, especially the ones that elucidate the flow… perhaps that is why I love dancing but on the other hand I have been equally captivated by the beauty of Tai chi and more so Qi Gong.

The healing energy of movement has often been a subject of deep passion, respect and research for me.

Likewise I am especially fond of the flowing Waltz as well. Since childhood, dancing comes naturally to me but have always found myself grappling to understand why martial art is even necessary.Until much later I started exploring the potency of energy in each of us…through a little introduction into Tai chi as well by conscious choice.

Allow me to present my reflections on this subject in a flow….

In a dance
There is an interconnect
Of emotion and movement
As to emote is to sense
The feeling in the flow…

In dance there is an awareness
Of moving in response
Without anticipation.
As in one step less,
The music moves on
And you are left to improvise
On how to match the steps in rhythm.

Yes, truly to dance is to enjoy the life in the moves.

In martial arts
There is flow too
But a flow that is ever in alertness,
In strategic moves and self defense
The speed and swiftness
In reaction and response.

Martial arts often feels like dance… t
But often the difference
Is between life and death.

Both are connected in the deepest sense and yet distinctive like chalk and cheese.

The intention to dance and to fight…is what differentiates.

We dance to let go, to enjoy this now and celebrate it.
In awareness is a flow that merges in harmony to synch in with now in artistry of the moves

The warrior is fighting for peace for survival against all odds
Not knowing what is the next move but yielding to the now to decipher the countermove and strike.
Here too there is often a display of extreme artistry of motion in accuracy of time.

To learn both, takes dedication and practice in patience.
But most of all is the need for relentless will & passion to persevere .

Yes, there is a dancer in a warrior

And a warrior in the dancer.

Choice rests within you.

Just remember, to dance is to live the moments and explore its most aesthetic potential in the flow… choose not to make dance a fight.

Stay joyful in peace.

To learn martial arts is to get into the arena and survive.
Attack or in self defense with least possible harm to get out of harms way to stay in peace.

Both may have their own relevance in purpose
To negate one is to look at only one half of the circle
Just as much as joy is part of life
Safekeeping the freedom to be
Is equally important in every now…

Do you want to dance in peace
Do you want to fight for peace.
Choice is yours to make
Peace or war!

Savvy.

Dancing Lights!

I was a little kid when I first came across this beautiful word Aurora …and then I read about the Polar Lights and was truly fascinated.
Back then I read as much as I could find in books before the age of the internet.

For many of us so far away from the poles this is often impossible to imagine beyond a blue sky… let alone the dancing lights.

Resharing this poem which is a dedication to Nature’s dance in the sky… all in the depth of my awe & fascination.

Spectre of brilliance
An opera in the sky
A dance of dazzling lights
Of colours flashing through.

Luminescent beyond compare
Magical spectacle of brilliance in the flow
An undulating waltz in the yonder
An unveiling of earth’s myriad wonders.

Such an ethereal vision
Mystical northern lights
Unbelievable, unforgettable
Awesomeness beyond mere words.

Razors Edge

On the razors edge, there is poignant elegance

Beautiful poise, precariously in balance

Amidst the fury of the fire raging beneath

She stand resolute in her calmth

Not helpless but in knowing nature’s ways

That in time, all is well back to base.

Beauty on the outside burns off into the ember

Leaving an ashen pile of dust to remember.

Yet deluding the fury in being uprooted

In the strength of the grounding firmly rooted

Leaving an evergreen picture of poise

She has that stoic stance of grace.

A pose of composure on destiny’s face

In spite of a life abruptly denied

She is the beauty of grace personified!

The fault in our…

We often complicate things which are actually very simple.

Perhaps the idea of simplicity is embedded in the complexities

Our ways of life and living often weighs us down in density.

The simple life is seen to be difficult to sustain

We are drawn to searching for more ways of entrapment of our senses

That our views have become colored in the distractions.

The simple truths are submerged in the illusory facades.

Our perception changes with our attitude

The way we see things changes the way things are.

Circles of Energy

Every soul emits the energy
Of the wisdom of times
Lived living and in between
Myriad reflections of mind
Consciousness of the heart
And in character of the being

Embodiment of the ego in its essence
Humbled by life time and time again

Until the ancient soul find its own path
Of balancing witness and action.
Sensing the truth of its own being.

Power of Perseverance



Your vision begins it all!

You create a mission

You chalk out a plan

You choose your path

And keep moving  towards it

You take the steps to fulfill your dreams

Everything happens at the right time.
 
Keep persevering  keep implementing

Towards the purpose of your being.

Tap into ur own power in perseverance.

Energy is omnipresent

In the quantum level
In our cosmic consciousness
Our energies, transforms itself
As a pattern in the making
Charting us along
the evolutionary pathway.

Our imagination is energy
Of the source code
Dancing in all its uniqueness
Yet energy at its core is oneness
For all is interdependence
In the interweaved tapestry
Of life and living.

Collating confounding concepts Conundrum of collectives
Of creative connections into
Coexistence in collaboration

Of potential into the possibilities
Modifying thoughts to morphing ideas
Energy may alter in shape and form
Yet the truth of energy is omnipresence.

Dancing In Harmony





Dance not to impress
Dance to express 
Dance for no one but you

In the dance sometimes
The dance begins to lead the way
But know you choose the way.

Choose to pause between the steps
When you need to balance the self
To dance again from the center of your being.




You are the dance, the dance is in you
But you must abide
By the truth of your being

If you dance without your soul
Or if you dance without your spirit
You feel empty as you are not there.

Then you are not true to your purpose
To express the way of your being.
So tune in to authenticity.

There may be many distractions
Along the way of dancers dancing
Different dances for different  reasons






Every life has its own purpose
Whats relevant to stay truly aligned
To dance in harmony with your being.

The Journey



As is above
So is below
Reflection speaks
As is within.
The journey of life
Mirrors our way of being

‘In every moment of time care to be rooted to the stillness in your movements‚Ķ
Care to acknowledge gratefully this strength in the rootedness.’
