Sunkissed Earth

Sunkissed earth

Rays of light

Beaming through

Leaves aflame

Passionately pink

Flowers strewn

Woody trails

Evergreen trees

Scented forests

Serene spaces

Tranquility untold

Sight to behold

Heart at peace

Mind at ease

Beautiful places.

Sun kissed earth.

As simple as this

In few words she simplified how to be & how do, whatever you do.

Life is actually simple

It is we who complicate it

Let’s just do the best we can

Let’s keep bettering ourselves every day!

For we truly can!

Salute to a great spirit & soul!

The Way

When we care to truly listen

We can hear our soul’s calling.

In the journey of life

Every one of us

Has a unique pathway

That is our reason to be

That makes us feel fulfillment

That speaks to us with all of our heart

That makes us see the signs

How far would you go

To find your pathway?

Bridge of Awareness

From the architect of time, the source creator  came a space of  nothingness (akash)from space came matter  (energy) from matter came  movement (wind, air) from movement came fluidity (flow, water) from fluidity came existence from existence emanated the spirit of life (the breath of life, fire passion).





The elements existence are a guide in an acknowledgement of the interdependence. An awareness of interconnections in an acceptance that everything exists in the subtlety of balance.  

The spirit of life and living is the bridge to our calling &purpose of being. As well as in the journey of the  being. The path is and will be ours and yet not just ours.

 Every move in time is interlinked in the bridge of time that we were, are and will be on. The bridge of time is in eternal cycle of motion. All matter constitutes one or more of  the elements in different proportions.

 While the mind of the matter  perceives it in thoughts, the heart of the matter senses. Mindful thoughts and heartfelt  feeling are both  real and unreal all at the same time. And consciousness is the bridge of awareness between the  extrinsic and the intrinsic,  between the learning and the knowing.

And in this understanding is the realization whole and complete of all as it is .

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…🙏

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.
