Dance baby dance…

Dance Baby Dance…

As simple as that!

Delight the soul

Lighten the heart.

When you move freely

Beyond fear and apprehensions

Beyond self doubts & restrictions

Beyond assumptions & judgements

You are in tune with the spirit within.

Stay tuned in & keep dancing!

Dancing the Jive is one of my personal  favorites. And yes this music makes you feel happy and alive. 
You can’t help feeling great!

What it entails.

The course is spread over two days .
Focus will be of course be building on basics of the Dance and partnering skills .
Beyond the basics we will also be focusing on tips and tricks to make your dancing not only easy  but enjoyable for you as well as your partner .

Every dance style  has a special  effect   on us as dancers and  this dance  worshop will certainly keep you  happily dancing.

Soulful Expressions




Expression is our birthright It makes us who we are…

In being able to move without fear or favour,

The life manifesting through us,

Art speaks from the heart of our soul.

Bringing forth our soulful expressions.

Purple Daze

 

Surreal vision, silken dreams

Silver sky, hues of blues

Serene spaces beyond places

Known and unknown

Purple daze, violet lake.

Ethereal vision entwined passions!

Enchanting sight, purple light!

The colour purple symbolizes many things like mystery creativity, romance, royalty,  luxury, pride and peace.
It is the colour artists are often fond of.
Spiritually, colour purple and violet assist in the expansion  of awareness and in connection of deeper consciousness.




How many shades of purple have you heard of...
Here are some variations of Colour purple… many of which you can find in the beautiful picture above.

Lavender,  lilac
Periwinkle, purple
Heather, mauve
Orchid, amethyst
Iris, violet
Boysenberry, mulberry
Sangria, magenta
Plum jam, raisin
Grape wine
Eggplant purple.

And if you are the kind drawn to colour purple and violets…
What is your favourite shade?

When life imitates art

Art and the Artist

Can life express without art

Can art have meaning without life

When life meets art

There are endless expansions

One knows not where life begins

And art flows…

Or art begins and life flows…

Creativity enables itself

In a flow of the infinite abundance

And never ending expressions.

Savvy

Yes, there are moments

When life imitates art,

And art emotes life!

This is one of them. Do watch.

Dance Of Thoughts…

Can we ever quantify our thoughts
For thoughts have a speed of their own
Depending on so many variables
With our concept of time still subjective.

For thoughts travel through space
There are particles of matter there
Of which we know too little as yet
In the weft and warp of time immemorial.

Thoughts are invisible but palpable
Difficult to measure but relatable
For much can be thought
In half the time of a blink of the eye.

Every thought is a part of a cosmic pattern
A phenomenon beyond realms yet to be known
Surpassing the speeds unknown
With complexities of our own perceptions.

Out sense of intuition so profound in power.
And what to speak of deja vus & dreams
Or our imagination so infinite
Psychic revelations in time and space

Our jumbled thoughts in the heat of the moment
Our calm collected coherence
Our racing frenzy of feelings in chaos
All matter as they come along in time .

We may find it difficult to control our thoughts
But we can certainly choose what we do with them
For thoughts come and thoughts go
Depending in how you respond to them.

Align them to harmony with movements
Acknowledge their presence to let them go
Breathe in a little space around your thoughts
Sense the peace in between those pauses.

So breath a little deeper
As you think, sense & feel
Be one with your thoughts
Before you respond to them

Thoughts arise in life and living
As they are meant to do
And words come from a depth unknown
But Speech is a choice that you have!

A journey of awakenings

No two lives can be compared
For they are not the same
Not even at birth, although they are humans
The life experiences along lifetimes
Decide the nature of the being
And nurture then interpolates itself
And love makes way for itself
To flow into the being.

In the web of complexities of life
The being starts and courses its journey
In the dance of the elements
The being senses the truth of life in the living.

In searching and seeking
In awe and wonder
In beauty and grace
In the chaos and challenges
In the success and failures
It finds its bearings and builds resilience

Every life aligns towards its calling in time
Seeking decreases accepting increases
To refine the process of awareness
In the journey of conscious awakenings.

Romance of the light!

What is it about the twilight sun?
Colours blending in the contrasts
Like the day and night waltzing
Ever so gently with each other.
Time makes space in its steps
To sense the surreal

And what to say of scenic hues
Of the sky the sea and the sun.
Of icy white glistening with snow
As the light shimmers with water
Watch the snow melting
Gently in the flaming light…

Golden orange hues of the sun
Casting itself over the sea.
Reflecting through the clouds of gold
Blending the burning brilliance.

In the dance of the dusk and dawn
A visual treat appears for all to see
To witness the ethereal everyday
In those moments in between
Even if it’s just for few fleeting moments …

Twilight hour is the romance of the light!

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!

Life and living

Yesterday evening as I went out walking I couldnt help notice the stark reality that stares at us . In people around us!

Often find there are more grim faces out in the world with tension written all over in their body language.

A serious disposition, drooping shoulders downward or vacant gaze, clenched teeth or fist , tight jaw. People think twice before smiling or making eye contact.

Or on the other extreme… every one these days seems more connected to their mobiles than ever. And when they are asked to come back to reality there is a gap in awareness. People are overwhelmed by this divide that is happening all around us.

Life need not be overwhelming all the time. Perhaps a few personal perspectives need a shift.

Life and living

Life is easier when

  • You make friends with your past.
  • You realize you create happiness.
  • You stop your overthinking.
  • You realize time heals it all.
  • You live and let live.
  • Your avoid passing judgements.
  • You begin to start smiling more.

Would be happy to hear more of what makes life easier for you…Do feel free to share of what you think can make life easy!

We are…

Sing the song of approval!

Years of conditioning
May often bring the habit of self criticism
Avoid self sabotaging the self
Often times we try to be too self righteous for our own good!
This makes way for a certain self doubt and self denial that disrupts our growth.

We are human and truly let us be so
We have our foibles and our feats to own up to.
We can accept the applause with dignity of being in a simple thank you!
We have no necessity to act small, helpless or defensive in every moment.

We are best serving ourselves
When we begin to express the potential in our being
Often we cover down in fear of being judged or criticized
Know this world is large enough for us all and more
Each of us must play our part in living here

We are all entitled to a life of dignity and we need to sense that in our being.
So let us change our song
From criticism to approval
And watch the change this single act of deliberation
Can bring about in your own life as well as in others around you
Watch the positive transformations
Through these three simple acts
Approve Appreciate and Applaud!

Savvy

To all the women out there… when you see yourself in good light,

Simply know you begin the shine some more!

Soul Signature

Creativity abounds
Artist delivers
Critiques interpret
Art flourishes.

Every piece of art is a creative signature
Of the soul of the artist
Artworks retain its interpretation within
As they leave the chamber of creation.

Once the art is set free and open
Making it visible and vulnerable
To reviews, critiques or applause
It is open to manifold interpretations.

The inference is never complete
Nor is it free of judgements in assumptions
For how can it be so?
It is nature of art to manifest counter views.

These very varied interpretations
Give life to the art
For as new meaning is born
The art flourishes in its wake.

Hope is here to stay!

As a daughter of a retired Air force man who has served the nation at the borders in the two wars in his time, I have seen the effect of those service years up close on him. Today all those experiences are a memory that makes for some interesting dinner conversations. But nevertheless as a youngster I have witnessed how much the rigours of training set deep imprints on the psyche of the soldiers.The mindset and attitude is strengthened and trained to bear the consequences of war.

Serving the armed forces creates a never say die attitude that makes me concur on this again and again … You can take a man out of Air force but you can never take Air force out of the man!

Every soldier is different no doubt with his own set of life experiences and background . But what is strikingly similar and significant is the solidarity of spirit to serve the nation at all costs.

Amazing is the spirit of a soldier indeed!

In hope of the Abhinandhan Effect

In the wake of the release of our brave soldier in today’s times there arises a question and kindled hope in the hearts of the families of the now well known list of the Missing 54 (and who knows how many more ) Pow’s of the 71 war .

The families are still hoping that they are alive and awaiting their return someday sooner than later.

Recently there were media reports that when Indian delegates visited to check the prisons that the POWs were supposedly held they would be shifted from jail to jail so that there would be no trace of them .So without proof of their existence the case was difficult to pursue.

Perhaps if the pressure that was exerted today for the return of our soldier through all channels right from governments to the media photos of his capture and his leaked video clips, which made the world notice, if it was possible then, it would have possibly made a difference in freeing them as well.

For the sake of the anguishing families that sincerely still pray for their return …. perhaps some way will materialize and they will be released as well .
Hope is here to stay!
