Circles of being

Each of us create Circles of being
As our life changes
We create new circles in living
We are constantly recreating
The interpolation of circles
Every circle interconnects
Somewhere somehow.

In these circles of being
Is a sense of community
Creating camaraderie
Creating the ease of flow
Creating confusion and chaos
Of life lived along the edges
Of life lived protected in the core,
Of lives transacted in the transitions
Of lives lost and gained.

Let us know the strength of the circle
Let us respect its flow in the flexibility
We are, but dots in these circles of being
Every dot matters & completes the circle
And can begin a new circle of being.

Birthing Creativity

On chaos and order in birthing creativity!

Chaos is a precursor to order
It is the law of nature
Disorder and order are cyclical
All a matter of generation and regeneration.

Yet in all these complexities
There is a spark of simple brilliance
As in the flux of nature there is always
a stillness of consistency
Of interdependence in the interconnectedness

To accept change as a given
Creates an acceptance of a flow
Bringing forth new frontiers
In perspectives and ideas
Allowing ease of the flow.

The truth of creativity
Is that it is infinite and expansive
It is free flowing without fixation
It is boundless and unique.

Acknowledging the chaos as much as the order
As they are and meant to be….
Creates a conducive environment
For the birth of new creativity.

On Spaces (Part I)

From time immemorial
Existence equaled spaces
Life equated space as a given
All a matter of life and death.

Our history is a witness
Of the story of spaces
Fought for, on and upon
Mauraded or harvested

The mystic and majesty
Lies in the significance of spaces
Spaces breathed and birthed
Spaces nurtured in nature

Spaces in and around us
Breathtaking magnificent
Stark manifestations
Of ground realities

Spaces in time eternal
Spaces bygone
And yet to be encountered
Spaces lived and loved

Spaces taken for granted
Spaces usurped and owned
Spaces pursued and protected
Spaces encroached and freed.

Gratitude to the powers that are
In the spaces between
The two words, two beings or two breaths
Between stillness and movement.

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.

Take note…

All that is visible
May be just an illusion
Or tricks and perhaps a facade
In the name of reality.

There is a maze running through
Of potential possibilities
Of fears and failures
Of success in endeavors.

Perceptions can create deceptions
Perhaps scripted and meant to distort.
And create a illusory reality
That can confound the smartest minds.

Humans are a work of art
Of mesmerizing magnitude
Each with a heart and mind of their own
Uniquely endowed beings…

Between the white and black
Are so many shades of grey
What appears right or wrong
May have so many layers to it.

Know such is the manner of life and living
Care to take note of emerging perspectives
And understand the shifts of behavior
Before you decide or draw a conclusion.

SYNCHRONICITY OF INTENTIONS

We are so caught up in the external knowledge, that we at times fail to connect with our inner awareness.

Conscious awareness is immense power in one’s hands.

Our thoughts are intentions, inseparable from everything that exists. But very often it is blocked with unnecessary anxiety, discontent or other negative emotions. Intentions as energy fields can be powerful, but the collective consciousness of intentions towards a larger good can be even more so.

We have the choice to choose wisely and create the beauty of synchronized creative patterns. Look around us and we can observe nature which blesses us when in the harmony of synchrony.

Each of us is uniquely blessed with the power to choose thoughts that can transform the life within us and around us for the better. This is the first step to touching lives beyond dimensions with the synchronicity of good intentions.

A prayer towards general goodwill is a good example of synchronicity of intentions.

After all, intention too is a form of prayer. And more the attunement to an intention more the chance of manifesting the energy of synchrony.

In every moment the choice of any thought and creative enterprise is, was and will always be with us …

Let’s care to choose well!

Infinity of truth

Is the truth of Creation
Bound by laws
Or is creation a product
Of union and collisions.

Every act of creation
Is a manifestation of a reality
A dimension of truth
A matter,a shape, a form
In the envisioning of the ultimate oneness

What is the nature of creation
Is it continumm of intentions
Giving rise like phoenix
To the alpha and the omega
Is it the begining to end
Or the end with infinite beginnings
Not yet fathomable.

As man seeks to understand
The order of things
Life creates disorder
It shakes things up a bit
For all to settle for a while
Back into place .

And man thinks
He has deciphered
Finally the meaning
Of his own self
Amidst the others.

Only to be stumped by chance
Once again by stepping in
To another dimension
In the making, and yet again
Is left pondering over
Another reality in the illusions

We are mirrors of our existence
For no answer is the perfect answer
No truth, the perfect truth.
We are interweaved beings
Interpolating our individual
Versions of truth as it appears.

In so doing we refine our versions
In inclusivity and exclusivity
In trial and error
Searching and discovering
Learning and sharing
Our paths in crossing and in sensing
Accepting and acknowledging
The Infinity of truth

Nature of nature

The nature of nature…

Nature is full of vibration.

Never truly silent

For it is alive with pure energy.

Always a wise companion.

In moments that you need

Some respite and understanding.

Its very nature shows the way.

Seek nature to energize your being.

Seek its freshness of spirit

When the world gets too weary

Every once in a while.

Nature never competes.

It is never in a hurry.

Nature never rushes you

It continues on its path

As it seems meant to!

Allow your own nature

to blend with the bliss of nature.

Sense its synchrony

Envision its endurance

Marvel its magnificence

Wonder at its wisdom

Connect with its composure

Understand its inate balance.

In itself by itself with itself .

In and around you.

Know you are nature

And nature is you.

Ultimate Oneness in the diversity

Such is the nature of nature.

Each moment is a new me.

Change, the one that never changes
Is Nature’s way of continuing the Eternal cycle of life and death.

The Infinite Cosmic Energy, being the Eternal Centre
Changes keep on happening
In every atom, molecule, particle, and cell.
Thus widening the horizon,

From Invisible subtle to Visible gross.
Creation and destruction, a part of this change,
The various cycles of Life and seasons
Changing monotony to a variety
In mind and matter.

Colours and moods transient, every moment.
Wondering in awe to the moment next.
Dwell not in the past,
Fret not the Future,
Never to lose the Magic of the Present.
Each moment a new me is born.

Be present to cherish the Present.
Be aware n awake to witness

The blossom of bud to fragrant flower.

‘Your poems become my muse’. 😊.

This is what I received from my mother this morning after she read my yesterday’s post ‘ Glimmers of hope’.

‘Thank you, mom, for writing your reflections. It truly means much to me.’

Have simply added some pictures to go along with her words.

Light of Life.

In the vastness of the dark
A single candle makes a difference
It illuminates and creates interest
It draws attention and focus
For it casts a riveting spell
It attracts life towards it
For it is light of Life itself.

Light and dark
Fill the void
With their own potential
There is much that is yet dark
Yet even a glimmer of light
Sends out a message there is hope

The purpose of light
Is to shine on its path
In spite of the darkness
The essence of light
Is never hidden too long
Although the light
May cross paths with darkness

The nature of light
Is to shine on…
No matter the darkness
For it cannot remain
Too long in the pocket
Suppressed or subdued.

It shares from wherever it can
In every direction and distance
And when it stir up on some reflections
And has pushed those shadows behind
It knows it has fulfilled its presence

Light is all encompassing
All allowing and fearless
Lighting paths of darkness
In clarity and understanding

In the utter dark of the night
Its presence needs a little wait
In both patience and perseverance
To envision the mighty rays
The dawn of its true potential

In Lighting the hearts
Aflame in purpose
In beauty of the envisioning…
The potential of possibilities

Light of Life
You are on your own
From the moment you birth
And you are enough for you

Waltzing beyond the walls!

A visual verse

Wrote this impromptu poem after seeing this clip shared by my dear friend Efi from https://efisoul63.wordpress.com/about/

yesterday on my post Creativity: A matter of approach https://wp.me/p6a0yZ-2Em

Watch these amazing and spirited performers daring to dance like so…

<a href=”http://

“>Waltzing On the Walls

Waltzing beyond the Walls
Art lives in betwixt and beyond the walls of assumption
A dance happens in the letting go and in the gumption
Take away the fear of falling down and failure.
Take away the fear of doubts and see what the spirit can endure…

Soul dances leading through the spirit and the body follows
Unshackling conventions and freeing of limitations that hollows
Defying the elements and daring to dance
Shaping new frontiers without losing form or stance

Spirit of life I bow to thee🙏
You are beyond all decree.🤲

Creativity: A matter of approach

What makes a job well done?
What makes excellence a standard?
What makes one stand out a cut above the rest?
What is aesthetics after all?
What differentiates the good better and the best?

All is a matter of approach in every field of life. A shift in the perspectives brings home, amazing solutions. An approach that is creatively expansive than confounding, opens a box of possibilities. We are all equipped to reach out into our own creative potential by just empowering ourselves with techniques of approaching a situation at hand.

Every one of us is endowed with the potential to develop our artistic abilities and approach with a creative eye. It’s a matter of putting the principles into practice and taking that giant leap of faith.

Artist and Creativity:

Creativity blooms in every acknowledgement of interconnectedness. To profess any creative reflection as just mine alone is too limiting in the larger picture. As any exercise to envision beyond, needs to step beyond time frames, to flow along in the subtlety of the eternal wisdom. In fact, our creative enrichments are a reminder of the beauty within that is as unique as every one of us in its similarities as much as the differences and yet deeply aligned to learnings in the consciousness of the interdependence.

Although as an artist we may give a shape to thoughts, its destiny is the result of the bubbles of thoughts in the connected flow. As soon as the clarity of the interdependence reigns in the hearts, all thoughts transform creatively as per the seeing beyond looking, in the gratefulness of both the subtlety and starkness of the interdependence.

Creativity is a tool and treasure for the taking in your hands. Do something with it that only u can.
As no one possess your uniqueness.
And do that which calls out from your being.
Trust creativity for its latent powers that can be unleashed in the acknowledgement.

Explorations in creativity at play or work by chance or in a structure boosts the chances of emerging into patterns of successful design.
Classic learning by trial and error, doing and undoing in a repetitive way also offers a lot of scope for creative breakthroughs

Whether it is the movement of our bodies and our thoughts that get stirred creating new correlations and understandings on a simple nod, a tug, a tap, a touch has immense potential to create waves of energy.
And thus in thinking with our movements, we can bring out nuances of many complex relationship patterns to notice.

Ingrained points of reference can be a hard thing to let go once you have them in you as trained dancers musicians or artists. To allow things to settle in without internal or external interference can be quite a disconcerting task for most of us. As we are often used to creating a connected flow of thought …thought tend to arrange themselves in the pattern by habit.

To find your own sense of flow and then create needs more than a receptive mind which is open to possibilities. Creativity flourishes in moving beyond the box stepping out of the emerging visages in the interpretation, time and time again.

Every creative endeavour is rooted in a dance of the energy within and around us … the dynamics of integration embodies the creative output. A movement that is influenced in the tidal wave of both gravitational and centrifugal force of thoughts.

Create, with all of you

For that’s what it takes

All of you!

Art & Artist!

Art emanates from the sublime consciousness

Art speaks forth the language of hearts.

Art conveys the nature of life.

Art portrays the perspectives between.

Artist communicates with an interpretation in free will

Artist expresses reflections in a flow.

Artist connects the divinity in subtlety.

Artist breathes life into the Art.

How can you separate the art from the artist?

Faith is…

Faith is all there is

For without faith nothing is!

Savvy

A few more reflections…

When faith speaks it helps to listen
For faith conveys the depth of knowing
In simplest of ways.

Call it a belief in trust
Call it a feeling in the gut!
Call it a sense of intuition.
All a certain knowing in the sensing!
