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.

In Synchrony

Today I am happy to be sharing both my vision and my verses in synching with the flow… Have enjoyed this process of many learnings in blending my art to merge and emerge along the way… 

I would love to have your feedback on both my painting and poetry.

In Synchrony

What is it that powers and energizes our movements?
What calms and eases us in.
All is, in the flow…
Of our breath in this now.

And how it can flow enveloping  and encompassing,
Connecting and complementing each other like an elegant dance!In the inhale and exhale

All is in the learning
To flow and dance with life!
In Synchrony!

Alone and yet not alone!

I am not alone

I am not alone
When I am walking at dawn
For I have the company
Of a waking sun.

I am not alone
When I am walking at dusk
For I witness the dance of heavenly lights.

For Twilights hold a special meaning
In the witnessing
Of transitions in transcendence.
Of day to night
And night to day…

In this world
Remember
You are not alone
In the dark of the night
With twinkling stars to show you the way.

You are only alone
When even in midst of the many
Your heart seeks a little
Respite from company!

A safe space to witness
Your emerging thoughts
A zone to turn into
A tranquil place to been in

To sense a balance
With your thoughtful self
Amidst the scurry hurry
Of life and living.
Savvy

Often ‘ alone’ is equated with loneliness. Alone may also mean simply being a witness to, by and with your self. It may arise from a need to explore to discover the self as much as the world in mindful introspection and contemplation. Every now and then a little time spent quietly with your self can truly help expand and regain the much needed equanimity to handle the worldly issues.

Meditations are a positive wonderful way to recharge our system.

Do you like to find time to be alone

With your thoughts and nothing else?

Do share

Dancing matters…

Dance when you can …know you always can.

If you can’t get up and dance …

Dance in your thoughts

For dancing matters!

Shall we Dance?

And the muse will touch you!

Creativity is abundant in the flow of life
In moulding  it to give form in the formless
In blending in its essence to shape as you please
In connecting the dots to structure it meaningfully

Every artist charts his path
With the blessed touch of a mystical muse
The muse appears uncalled and unforeseen
But exits suddenly as it came …

Then when spaces prevail in the togetherness
And the artist seeks on with a clouded vision
What appears seems beyond comprehension
Every moment begets its own challenge

When thoughts seem too scattered
When emotions need time to settle
When silence tends to stifle
When every endeavour hits rock bottom

Trust in the knowing
The muse will touch you
In the oddest moment
As it knows not time
To  give your thoughts a new pattern
Although the path is of your own making.

Savvy 

Every creative endeavour is an undefinable journey of peaks and pitfalls , of highs and lows. The artist can find themselves at crossroads  questioning  their very existence and therefrom find new paths to forge ahead in creativity.  The challenge is to take it all in your stride knowing ‘to create is a responsibility’ and hence the apparent strifes prepare you in the process towards your purpose of being . 

Flow is a matter of faith and trust when you know ‘All is in a state of flow’                Self belief takes shape in the form of a Muse and leads you on to a state of creative flow once more .

These verses are my humble dedication to the Creative Enigma of the fascinating  Leonard Cohen. RIP

https://www.irishexaminer.com/examviral/real-life/leonard-cohens-final-letter-to-his-dying-muse-is-even-more-poignant-today-414649.htmlMollestad, a documentary filmmaker, read the letter to Ihlen before she died.

“It said, ‘Well Marianne, it’s come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon.

“Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine.

“And you know that I’ve always loved you for your beauty and for your wisdom, but I don’t need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey.

“Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road.’”

Mollestad told host Rosemary Barton that when he read the line “stretch out your hand”, Ihlen had stretched out her hand.
