Live Life Lovingly!

I see

A world beyond

I see

A borderless world
Overflowing abundance
In the kindness of being.
Beyond assumptions
Notions & judgments
In fear and confusion
Over man made division.
The beauty of creation
Survives the human frailties.

The world without borders
Is one of awe and intrigue
Of the alluring mystic
Of all pervading consciousness.

Of manifestations beyond compare
Of artistry beyond words
All strewn for us to sense
In the tapestry of life.

Interweaved interconnects
Unraveled in interdependence
Such is the true nature of elements
Of Creation at its best!

Happiness





Why search for joy
When you have it all
You have power to create it
It rests with you.
Sense it in your heart
Express it with your smile.






If you ever feel unhappy
If ever you sense worry
If ever your sense of smell
Derails you and you feel lost
In a maze of confusion.




Relax and just put a hand on your heart
Know you have it all within.
For the way of heart is love
It will guide you back to joy!



A gentle reminder
To me and you
To smile from the heart.
And Live life lovingly!

Life and living




The Isha Upanishad (ईशोपनिषद्, ‘īśopaniṣad’) is one of the shortest of the Upanishads, in form more like a brief poem than a philosophical treatise, consisting of 17 or 18 verses in total. The Upanishad constitutes the final chapter (adhyāya) of the Shukla Yajurveda and survives in two versions, called Kanva (VSK) and Madhyandina (VSM).

The Isha Upanishad is significant for its description of the nature of the “Supreme Being”, exhibiting monism or a form of monotheism, referred to as Isha “Lord”. It describes this being as “unembodied, omniscient, beyond reproach, without veins, pure and uncontaminated” (verse 8), one who “moves and does not move’, who is ‘far away, but very near as well'” and who “although fixed in abode is swifter than the mind” (verses 4 & 5).

The first verse of the text has been cited as of particular importance to Vedanta or to Hinduism as a whole.

The first verse reads:

īśā vāsyam idaṃ sarvaṃ ¦ yat kiñca jagatyāṃ jagat |
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā ¦ mā gṛdhaḥ kasya sviddhanam ||

literal translation (Ralph T.H. Griffith, 1899):

“Enveloped by the Lord must be This All — each thing that moves on earth.
With that renounced enjoy thyself. Covet no wealth of anyone

Simply  profound verses.

All The Truths of  living  life in this ephemeral world  is contained  in those lines.


Sharing a few more musings by my mother on the same lines.

Whatever is available to you in this world, learn to enjoy without the feeling of possession.

You are one among the many in line. Take care while it is with you without owning it.

Ascension Plan

Aim high

Take flight

Who cannot be with you

Will move on their way

Keep perseverance alive

Stay passionate in pursuit

Have dreams and intentions

Aspire to inspire

That is your ascension plan.

Sharing a story that I came acros…

The Eagle and the Crow
===================

The only bird that dares to peck an eagle is the crow. He sits on his back and bites his neck. The eagle does not respond, nor fight with the crow. It does not spend time or energy on the crow.

It just opens its wings and begins to rise higher in the heavens. The higher the flight, the harder it is for the crow to breathe and then the crow falls due to lack of oxygen.

Learn from the eagle and don’t fight the crows. Just keep ascending. They might be along for the ride, but they’ll fall off.

Always have an Ascension Plan.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Your Circle




Who you are becoming

Has much to do with

Who you are being with.

You are bit of all

In between  the Influences

And betwixt the Confluences

Of all the people you meet & interact.




You create yourself 

Carving patterns of your life

With these experiences.

Negate not those who teach you

For learning comes

From all quarters.





Think of  your circle of  life

Pay heed to your circle

Keep it healthy & contribute with grace

Watch it closely and imbibe the good.

Make amends if needed

Rally in strength & power of the circle.

Understand your space in the circle

Choose you circle well!

WISDOM OF STILLNESS




I listened  to my heart
Every day
As it shares from within
And I write them out as words
Sometimes as verses
At times its measured
In moderation.
Its a zen moment
For there is clarity
In just a few words shared.


Then there are times

They flow like a river
A torrent in a current
Patterning  itself
In its own making
Words come through me
As if it needs to be spoken
Sharing the sensitivity
Of the moments at hand.
I listen simply with rapt attention
For in the slightest flutter
In every movement in the moments
Or the depth of silence
There is wisdom in the stillness.

Do more

Reach a  little  beyond
Extend a little  more
Move a little  more
Add one more step



As you reach a bit more
Your vision expands
Your understanding improves
Looking back, notice lessons learned



Step up and walk some more
Reach out to help someone
Do more than you think possible
Be generous & grateful,without regrets.


Touch a life,leave a kind word.
Reach out a helping hand,
Extend a heartfelt prayer for another
Share a smile & go make someone’s day!

A matter of tuning…


When sounds begin too feel like music
Life takes on a new meaning.

Breathing into the songs of soul

All is a matter of fine tuning
Music makes my spirit come alive
Melodies can make me sing along
Rhythms can make my heart dance
The beats can  get my feet moving…

What about you?
How do you relate with music?
Do you have a favorite  type of music?
What is the music of your soul like?

Purpose of being

A few reflections…

Your life is not just your own, thinking so is an illusion.
You are meant to be all that you can be.
You have a purpose that is larger than your self.
You are meant to live & reach out and be expansive
You are meant to merge and emerge in the new circles of connection.

The choice of being true to yourself is yours to make
The patterns you create help expand the universe.
The connections you make in your lifetime leave a pattern in the grid for another to sense and evolve in time.
No two patterns are alike as the patterns are unique to your being.
Your purpose then is to live your life to the best of yourself.

Reach out to make a connection and experience the realms and yet staying true to your centre.
As you learn your way back home, more will find their way back home in time and space continuum.
To be Continued.

Be you, its simpler.



Value the life you have in this now

You are powerful in your uniqueness

You are your best friend

Make friends with yourself.

Trust yourself to know the way.

You will find your truth

Most importantly

There is no one else like you

Like who you are

Choose to be you

As you are

It’s simpler.

Be you.

Seek the Serenity



Seek the Serenity in the Silence

Care to tune in
Listen to the intuitive
The meditative, contemplative
The reflective & the restorative voices
There is a connective wisdom
In the sounds of silence
Emanating from you.
It is your precious inner self
Expressing itself.
Be mindful and attentive
Listen if you can,
Every once in a while.”
Embody the peace within.
Seek the Serenity  in the Silence

Water

Water

With its force of velocity
With its force of resistance
With its force of buyouncy

The pressure of the water
As much as the torrential flow
Is a force of nature.

Relentless in pursuit
And persistent in its perseverance
Such is the nature of water.

Our body is made of water
Water is both patient and resourceful
All is in the channeling in its flow.

Verses in flow Day 6





I have started an experimental journey and would like to invite you to be a part of it. Everyday through this week I have been writing and sharing a few verses in flow that you can choose to continue as well.

Would love to explore the connection in what evolves through the week and see the interweaves in the interconnects.

Verses in Flow
DAY 1 Truth

DAY 2 : Roots Day3 : Reason

Day 4 : Live

Day 5 : Life

Day 6 : Connect




Yes you have come far
You may have a new reality.
You may sense some disconnect.
In parts of your journey.



Yet care to remember
There is a night before the dawn.
Your present always has a past
Like with everybody else, all connects.
