A Sight to Behold!

Blooms and blossoms Photos by Savvy Raj

My photo of the day! Blooming in my terrace garden…

Roses have a beauty of their own

Colours contrasting with the green leaves

They blossom and capture hearts

Arrestingly captivating

To look at , enticingly fragrant

So delicate and fragile

But in all their vulnerability

Their charm flows in abundance

Always a sight to behold

Amazingly significant

For a Life so short lived!

Such is the wonder of life and living!

Savvy

Amazing nature! Amazing beauty!

Teaching us it is not the length of time we live , but in how best we can live the time we have!

All is a part of life!

Here is share of my mothers reflections after reading my yesterday’s poem

Light after dawn

Every example stood out for me and I just had to share .. with some pictures for the same and a title.

“A seed has to undergo so much to come out of the earth with new shoots of tender leaves

Gold nuggets have to undergo much before they become beautiful ornaments

Raw diamonds and precious stones have to undergo much to get their brilliance .

A mother has to undergo so much before the birth of a wonderful life.

A rock and tree have to so much undergo before they become priceless sculptures

All things of Nature have to go through a lot of transformations before a finer end product emerges.

Never fear the blow of the hammer, the cutting of the axe, the heat of the burning fire or the hurts, pains and insults one has to bear as each blow makes them stronger, shapes them to what they are going to become. Gives them more power, value and a beautiful form.

Keep smiling. The smile and silence can unsettle the opponent.

Make each experience as a stepping stone to rise high,

A lesson to learn, to mould you to become a better, stronger, mature, independent and fearless as a person than before.

Remember there is dawn after every dusk.

Yes, your transformation will be hard. Yes, you will feel frightened, messed up and knocked down. Yes, you’ll want to stop. Yes, it’s the best work you’ll ever do.

Robin Sharma

Trust to let go!

Trust and Dancing.

As you dance with another…what matters most is the trust you place on yourself and your partner. To dance as one unit moving in synchrony and feeling the harmony of your beating hearts . This is the ideal connection which makes a dance come alive in the moments.

Yet as much as trust is a much needed trait in dancing together as a couple, often trust takes time to build and is also a subjective matter amongst dancers.

To trust is to let go doubt

To trust is to allow space for growth

To trust is to know patience in waiting

To trust is to allow space for faith

To trust another is not easy
For one and all…
To some it may be the most difficult
But trust is certainly worth trying!

To trust takes effort not assumptions
It takes practice in time and space.
For trust can be on many levels
Emotional Mental or Physical

Trust is built to evolve along
For in building the relationship
The foundation needs to endure
The winds of changes…

Trust is what trust does
Try to pin it down
Watch how turns out to be
Confusing and elusive…

Before you trust you will
Spend time sensing,
And witness the energy
The tension in the transactions

Being ready for changes
Being prepared to brave
Through disappointments and dissatifations
That may arise at any moment.

And yet …

Trust is not only about building
But about the ability of letting go
Of worry and insecurities
Of fear and failures.

To trust is to reach out
Without any expectations
But in utter faith and belief
That you will be supported!

A dance between a couple is a blissful feeling only when there is trust in both the self and the other, just as much as the passion … as only when there is the letting go, can there be the flow manifesting itself through the movements!

THE LIFE OF AN ENTREPRENEUR

2 Comments

Ups and downs are part of life they say,
But if you have ever been in the shoes of an entrepreneur
Check out life on the other side
Where pitfalls and catapults are happenings of every day
!

Easier said than done, get married to one
And watch the brewing storms and tumults of every moment.
Staying centered is the name of the game
Play on, as fame and shame are small matters under the sun…

Just know in your heart to trust the moment
Live it with love and enjoy this now
Cos worrying is never the path to take
For it traverses on, a test of will in the torment
.

Change is the only constant they say and its best manifested in the life of an entrepreneur…

One of the important lessons in living with an entrepreneur… that I can pass on…

Well take nothing for granted

Neither the gains nor the pitfalls.

Everything is in a flux.

So enjoy the moment at hand

And happiness is in your heart!

Savvy

Sounds so wonderful to say I have my own company, or I am the Founder ….

But chew on this a while ….before you bite

Entrepreneurs are a breed apart

They strive for and thrive on success.

Of late the world seems a breeding ground for entrepreneurs and their dream what with almost every one dreaming to become one . Yet the price of startups in scaffolding years leads to so much learnings through it all.

Yes amazing is the feeling of being the boss, where you think you have it all taken care of and you have mastered your game… but then being at the healm of things has so much more at stake! Like never ending work hours , overt commitment workholism, insecurities,and relentless tensionand stress and most of all the looming responsibility of raising funds.

You realise you have to answer to your investors and funders . Your liability is your own conscience Your success is like a game of chances. The laws can make or break you in no time!

Your peace is at stake and your family takes a backseat most often, as you have so much to prove every day!

Your time is not your own but your companies ….and you realise it all only too late.

It certainly is not for the weakhearted as the pressures that surmount to stay at the healm can challenge the strongest minds.

I wrote this as I have personally witnessed the price of the entrepreneurial dream upclose. In the ups and downs the journey goes on , as ironically, these bravehearts never back down!

Knowledge & Understanding

Knowledge needs constant upgrades

Learning is a continuous stream

Ingraining is a choice in the flow

In refuting and analysing, decision are taken

In the dance of the heart and mind

The spirit of the soul finds communion

Acknowledging is the path of understanding.

Acceptance brings forth the wisdom of the being.

That in the river of time

From learning and unlearning

Emoting and feeling

Sensing and knowing

All is a flow

Changing to the course

Meandering along

Yet certain of the truth of the flow

Of the wisdom of infinite

Potential of possibilities.

Amazing nature

Amazing nature

Rivetting composition

All in the play of colours

In the shapes and structure

Every design unique yet self similiar

Arresting the eyes and treat to the senses.

Hues and tones

In perfect juxtaposition

Harmony in the synchrony

Amazing capture of amazing nature!

Touching Peace in the Middle path.

Her likes were not the blatant and ĺoud
Not the one to shout out
Her kind of songs were of melody and rhythm
In synchrony with her heartbeat
Her type of books were all of an understanding
The soothing and sagacious kind
Of healing and harmony.
Her friends were far and few
Not much would escape her lips
Her speech was guarded.
None had really stepped into her inner world
In fact, her family too knew little about her
Her words were simple, not stormy
In fact, she chose the middle path in life …
A road safe and steady
Not for her the bane of fame and fortune
Not for her the choppy waters of high tides
She preferred the smooth sailing in serenity
She was a lover of grace in simple things
She never was the seeking kind ever
Neither love nor laurels, pleasures nor pain
She lived a life content, she never craved too much

She knew the price of desire only too well…

Awakening the self, the way bearer in the wisdom of living.

Want of wealth, never brings balance of needs

Hoard nothing and healing begins Living intentionally is not about living selfishly…

She was privy to the clasping clutch that ambition brought

She witnessed the sacrifice of lives barely lived

She grew in the unfolding drama that power portrayed.

She was torched by emotional upheavals, to rise in fortitude

She amassed the wisdom in the power of silence

As she knew and sensed the peace in the middle path.

This is an interpretation of my own painting I have shared above. I choose to delve a bit on the nature of the central character in the painting…

Who is she?

What makes her who she is?

What guides and motivates her?

What brings her peace and contentment?

What makes her grateful?

To every evolving question there is always a reason to be…

And to each their own path to be!
