Nature’s Wisdom

Nature is so full of play

Creation speaks much for itself

In myriad patterns of formations

In countless whorls of leaves

An abundance of arresting artistry

Interspersed with wisdom of the creator

To discover in the learning

To understand and appreciate

Undeniable is the creators joy

In the manifestations of colours

Juxtaposed with unbelievable designs

All in such effortless grace

And what to speak of fragility

Of the tender blossoms of life

That emote so much inspirations

All endowed with the creators grace.

Spirals of enigmatic flow

Of magnanimous expressions

As much as the subtlety in self similarity

Leaving imprints of sublime divine.

Fractal patterns of nature

Infinite abundance, infinite energies

Infinite potential, infinite possibilities

Nature speaks the art of creation.

On Gratefulness

Gratefulness is a gift of realization of the infinite.
It is an attitude worth cultivating
It is a a breakthrough towards transcendence
It is the ability to change the difficult to bearable.

It is a positive step in the transition
It is a sensing of faith trust and belief
It is a relief from hatred.
It is a pause to allow the hurt to heal.

It is a inner transformation.
It is a breathe in awareness
It is a creator of infinite abundance.
It is a move from the heart.

It is an awareness of potential flow
It is an acceptance of the almighty
It is a conscious awakening of the heart
It is an expression in thankfulness.

Abundance Manifests

Belief is an act of invoking wisdom.

Trust in waiting is true acceptance.

Allowing is an act giving in faith

Receiving in humility balances the ego.

Trust and believe in the infinite abundance

Allow yourself to give and receive

Let your intentions be guided in goodwill and grace.

Abundance manifests!

You truly can!

When you sense a saddened heart
Say I am going to share some care.
When you meet indifference & antipathy
Say I am going to spread goodwill in empathy.

When you encounter a dull day
Say I am going to make it joyous
When you are faced with despair
Say I am still hopeful of change.
When you are feeling lost in a maze
Say I am going to find out a way

For there is always a way out
Keep your cheer about you
Know you are enough for you
And you will begin to light the way
Just by the way you are.
And because you truly can!

All bearing witness

To so many inexplicable miracles

Of mystical manifestations.

Trust life & keep the faith

All is well!

Bring out the dancer in you!

Happy International Dance Day!

A true incident in dedication!

Just a casual conversation with a dear friend on Facebook threw open a facet of her innate personality, she loves to watch others dance and probably would love to learn too, but may be a complex of how it might be perceived, or so has kept her from trying. She also believes she has two left feet…

Well this is a notion held by many people, who may be basically shy or introverted by nature, or even perfectionists , or perhaps have some conditional experiences that makes them uncomfortable in daring to dance.

We went about talking as to how this can be helped.

Some simple yet profound movements that can help as starters.

A few things to remember:
It’s important to give yourself permission to begin movements, in whatever way you think best… a bow in prayer, a call out to yourself, or simply start with watching the dance of your breath in passive awareness and feel energized, with your in-breath and with every out-breath sense the release of that which needs to go …respect begins at home!

Sense, observe and feel one with any movement that you make, accepting the strange and the beautiful, the harmonious and the shaky moves … as part of the same source and believe there is a reason why they are what they are .

Take your time! There is no rush to prove anything so go with what works for you.

Preparation:

Allocate a time and place for yourself in the day at home. Clear the space and rearrange some furniture so that you have some moving space, without any obstructions. Option to have a mirror in front is totally yours as and when you want to allow it to happen. Mirrors reflect our actions so it helps to have one as a silent guide.

Make sure to remove jewellery, watches that may obstruct movement & avoid chewing gum as it is distracting.

As you begin moving on your feet it’s better to wear cotton socks for ease and flow of movement and preferably wear stretchable or loose clothes that don’t restrict body movements.

Remember the first time need not be the last time, just don’t give up! As with everything else, practise dancing from the heart and soul and be open to the changes in the flow.

With every movement we create energy in the room or space we are practicing. Each session is different. Sometimes exhausting, energizing, calming, stimulating, etc depending on a number of factors . Try to be receptive and accepting of that energy.

Aim:

To find yourself as you dance, accepting yourself as you create expressions through movements. Sensing the power of letting go & the power of Dancing as you move.

Take yourself a little less seriously. Enjoy Yourself!

My friend questioned me about how to actually start dancing. Having shared endless conversations completely whimsical or tremendously uplifting with her over the years I know her, I simply wanted to reach out to her and remind her, how much she has already moved with her unique experiences, dancing through the tunes of life. How many movements she already has explored in silent rapture and conscious presence. And how many times she has been supportive, constructive, connective ,caring, loving, giving, tender, gentle & corrective in her movements towards the ones she cared. People like me! Well it was time to gently remind her of her own innate creative flows…

Dance to your own tunes.

Depending on what suits your mood at the moment, let yourself hear some tune, that vibrates with the inner you. Knowing her soft and gentle nature, I suggested some soothing music to be played in the background without it being too overbearing. Since she was wondering how to begin… I suggested her to sit down and allow just her fingers, then her hand and then the arms to begin to move with the music, just yielding, flowing as she felt like from the depth of her soul.

Neutralizing the rest of the body allows the ease of tension of perceptions. With just the hands in front of the person as they move, one could draw a circle with each individual hand. trace a simple pattern, write their names in cursive , using the pace and flow that seems right for them. Many who don’t physically dance much in the open are self- conscious of their physical body. So its important to be gradual in the movements. Once the hands start getting comfortable to move from an inner calling of the rhythm, it’s time to allow the sway of the shoulders or even allow the foot to take a step ahead.

Soon the rest of body joins the dance gradually as you allow and acknowledge the presence of the creative dancer in you.

Movements may seem shaky and erratic at first and as you persevere you begin to see the changes.The movement starts getting connected with the inner you and you begin to merge with the tune and the movement.

After all there is a teacher in you for the disciple in you!

Still waters run deep

When water is still

There is mystery

In its stillness

Of its depth.

In its state of flow

Water acquires power

As it allows itself to be shaped.

In it is the strength to adapt

To be gentle stream in the flow

Or rise up like the waves

And in its very depth of being

Is a plethora of life’s potential

Thriving in the contentment of balance.
