Two women



Sharing a lovely piece of poetry

Two women, two different roles
The one who gave birth to me
And the one I gave birth to.

One gave all the love she had
The other got all the love I had

One strived in the life chosen for her
The other – for the life she chose

One made sure I didn’t have tears
The other ensured I face my fears

One hears my voice to know if am well
The other can read my face and tell

One had her eyes moist as she saw me go
The other made my eyes moist as I let her go

My past and my future when shall meet
Will be a picture ever so complete
Two women, two different roles

If only I could be a little like them,
The one who gave birth to me,
And the one I gave birth to.

Two women, two different roles.



Can simply say

Love is the bridge…
Betwixt & Between

Live life lovingly!❤

On Self Belief




Trust…
Who you are as you are
There is always a reason.

Believe
The strength in your self
To reach your potential

And then you are unstoppable.

On Action

An action that builds confidence is better than inaction which arises from fear.

At times the action is a success, at times , may be the action needs a new direction to be successful but action is better than no action.

On caring…





Life and living  can be both beautiful  and challenging beyond compare…

Touched by these heartfelt  words I came across so much that I just had to share..






“Take me out to the street, son, I still have good legs. If I walk with you, I won’t feel old …
Invite me to your home, son, Sunday morning; to share your good table and feel accompanied …
Talk to me with love, son, don’t challenge me or shake me; we old people are like children we like to be pampered, to smile without discomfort …
Celebrate my birthdays, don’t criticize my follies; I’ll try to be brave, even if bitterness arises …
Don’t push me away from you, don’t talk to me in anger; I still have my mind clear, the memories of the past …
Come visit me at home, my son, I will not ask you for anything; just your presence and contemplate your face …
Don’t leave me sad and alone, don’t put me to bed; the doctors are wrong, the pain is in the soul … ”






On Caring…

Care to give of yourself
Someday you may need it too!


Age is no bar
To create a value
For age is just a number.

Experience of living, matters.


Treat life with care
For life comes a full circle.



Life can at times be lonely
Make time to be present
In the life of those  who need you.


Just a bit of your time
A kind word or deed
Will make all the difference.




Express kindness
Your near and dear ones
Need to sense it.
Show empathy
Share the love.

This too shall pass

As you walk through

The sands of time

You will come across

Stories of truth and dare

Of pain and pleasure

Of life and living

That makes you wonder…

Why do some lives go through
Soul stirring moments of awakenings
And some soul numbing pain?

Why do some lives, dominate the weak
And some are broken and shattered in despair beyond repair.
Why do some lives live to experience
luxurious lifestyles.
And some are born to slavery or traded

Why do some lives matter more?
Why lives lived are discriminated for its diversity of nature and differently treated?
Why day and night stops making sense for some.

We truly have no answers
But what we do now is the truth of this moment changes in the next!
That is solace enough to weather the storms.

For life is transitory and everything changes
For nothing stays the same.
This too shall pass.

Boomerang Effect



Love boomerangs
It is the very nature of love.
For love generates more love
In the sharing is creating
In the creation is the spreading
Of this heartfelt expansion called love.

Love is meant to flow
For life to be sustained.
Love flows its course
In its own time.
Such is the power of love
Love when channeled
In goodwill transforms the world.

In this love, life is lived
In this love writers write
Dancers dance,  artists  create
Poetry flows, Singers sing
All in the resonance of love.

Love envelopes the whole spirit
Without fear or favor
For love boomerangs
Such is nature of love.
Sweet Love!💙💜💙

On Seeing

When you look at other people through a lens of compassion and understanding rather than judgment and jealousy, you are better able to see them for what they are—human beings.” ~ Unknown

The way we see the world

Changes our experiences

Lesser expectations

Greater contentment

Lesser assumptions & doubt

Greater trustfulness

Lesser hopelessness

Greater possibility

Lesser the complexity

Greater the clarity.

Carpe diem

So many solar cycles wiser
If you have survived so far
What makes you think
Any less of yourself?

From heartbreaking moments
To unexpected challenges
You have survived it all.
Let the moment unfold

Sense the spirit of life within
Hope is here to stay!
Make the most of this moment of now
Make a choice to seize the day!
Carpe diem!

Carpe diem…. Seize the day!

Truth in every breath

These words of Rumi deeply resonates here…

“I searched for God and found only myself

I searched for myself and found only God.”

Such is the truth, worth remembering in every breath.

“Inhale a prayer in every inspiration.

Exhale with gratitude in every now.”

Live life lovingly!

It’s wonderful and easy

When life is a breeze

But the test is when

It’s a little stormy…

Life is a gift

Any which way

The trick is to see

The many blessings

That at times goes unnoticed.

Live life lovingly!

Every life is precious

Every life is precious
We humans, are just a speck
In the multitude of creation
Every life, is valuable in itself.

How egotistical can we get?
To think our life is more important.
Humans are not the only life form.
Pity how ignorant we are!

Life is in all of us
Let’s begin to understand
The interdependence of life and living
The rights of all sentient beings.

High tme to educate ourselves
To accept and acknowledge
The value of every species
For each has a right to be!

Truth is, nature can survive
With or without l us.
But we need nature
More than it needs us.

Each life has a purpose
To fulfill for itself
Who are we to decide for it?
Life is meant to flow its own course.

Being Trustworthy

On Trust

To trust is an act of emotion blending with logic
Trust is the very act of belief in the reliability
Trust is also an act in good faith.
In integrity and competence.

Trust is a measure of confidence placed or held.
It does not come easy
It can also take time to build and earn trust.
It also takes effort to sustain it!

To trust is to take a chance to associate
To associate can be an investment of time and resources.
Make sure it’s worth it!
Be trustworthy!Trust in yourself as well.

Trust lost is rarely gained.
Trust is a mark of effective communication.
Everything crumbles without trust.
Nothing happens in doubts & distrust.
Building trust is a valuable asset in your life’s interactions.

As the Seasons Change

As the Seasons Change

Keep the Spring in your heart
Then no Winters are too harsh
Or Summers too hot to handle
As Seasons change around you
You sense it all from the hope of your heart.
And hope springs forth eternally…

Here is a beautiful video that came by , shared by my friend Ashok Subharao

Although it is in Tamil , the gist is relevant to keeping the Spring in our hearts.

Love
Be in love
Be alive to life
For life moves in time
The Circle of life is a given
Only you can make this now matter well
Feed the soul, with all your heart.
Be in this moment ,feel light.
Think well live happy
Feel the love,
Love life
Live

Another video clip that came by shared by my friend Christoph, while writing the above words in this format specifically, with an idea to use words symbolically to capture the essence of the circle of life, this also feels apt to share here.

It speaks of the circle of life and the essence of letting go.
This is so important for living life well.

The lesser the baggage you carry in your head and heart the lighter you feel and freer you are!

For what matters is what you make of the now…
Let the seasons change around you
As you engage with this moment.
Live life lovingly!
