Every ask has a reason.
Every give fulfills a reason.
What reason it fulfills is another story!
Joy of giving & sharing
When can you give and share with joy?
And what happens when you give and share …
When your cup is overflowing !
A state of abundance
This is an extreme state where you are having so much to give. You are overflowing with possibilities in the potential.
When you give from here,
You may not miss anything.
You may not know the joy of sharing and giving as you have so much more.
Maybe you are giving because you want to get rid of whatever you are giving.
Maybe you want to self balance.
Maybe you want to share with those unfortunate.
Sharing the good always helps.
But do u know if the one you share it with truly wants it or uses it well.
Or do you give no matter
Even if it goes to waste
Because you are overwhelmed. Then that is not giving but discarding.
When your cup is half full!
When you are having some and then you share some, then you are sharing from your heart and brain.
Youunderstand and feel for those in need.
You share because you have something to share, may be not much but you know in your heart
That as you keep sharing you create space for more to come. You are balancing yourself between needs and wants.
You are careful in what you give but you give from your heart, from a space of love.
Such a giving arises from equanimity.
When your cup is almost empty!
When you give from nothing much to give maybe you are hyper extended already.
You may know but choose to ignore it
Else you may be unaware that there is not much left.
In both these cases the giving takes more out of the giver, so much so that it may soon cease.
What can u give when there is nothing to give?
You will give may be beyond your ability but then you will tire soon, feel used and exhausted.
This is a state of tilted balance not a great way to give.
We all may have experienced this at some point or other in our lives.
While giving from a place of love and trust it never goes wrong. We do need to feel the joy in giving. As long as your heart says go on, you must, else notice what’s making your hearts feel different and pay attention. You may learn something more on it!
When the giving & receiving complement each other it is truly ideal. But most often that is not the case.
However, giving is best shared when it comes from a place of trust faith & confidence in the giving that there is always going to be something to give.
When giving is mutual there is a flow and there is abundance.
When giving is from contentment there is gratitude and vis versa.
When giving feels enough it’s best to assess why it feels so!
In greater understanding, the giving flows…
Life is never stagnant
Its meant to flow
Be a giver
Giving always finds itself receiving
Life is a circle.
Our thoughts and our intentions create the possibilities and our will manifests it . Truly then awareness of actions its approach and the consequences start to matter. Every bit of creation has a purpose and the trick is to steer it towards the purpose of being . But the path is the journey of our life and is rife with challenges along the way.
Common sense, balance & equanimity of our thoughts & intentions, all begins to matter then. Yes, moderation is the key but be mindful of moderation as well.. You never know how things slowly get out of hand .
There is not much time that passes
When the glass in hand reaches the lip
The sip becomes a gulp
What’s one becomes two
And two becomes four
And so it goes…
Or when the thoughts in our heart gets spoken
When old habits surface & shape out of no where
Without your intentions, inspite of you
When what’s in you gets truly out of hand!
Be aware to be mindful
Be mindful to be heartful
Be mindful to be moderate
But be conscious to be mindful.
In throes of life and living
Emerges many facets of being
From meagre to excess
Both, two ends of the spectrum
To live life well
Is to understand
The necessity of discernment
Between what is need & what is want
Anything in time can become excess
Everything in time can become redundant.
Something always changes
Nothing stays the same
A life of excess
Will never find contentment
For you will tire
Sooner than you know
A life of lack
Will keep you in dearth
In angst for a silver lining
In the misery of poverty
But again what is little to one
Is much to another
What is complex to one
Is too simple to another
What is beautiful to one
Is ugly to another
What is extravagance to one
Seems a norm to another
What is a subject to one
Becomes an object to another
What is absurd to one
Becomes perfection to another
To each his own really
In this life that is given
Sometimes it’s easy
At times it is truly challenging.
So if in life you are ever flummoxed
Nobody is perfect
But you are almost there!
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!
On black and white photography.
What is it about the black and the white
That evokes much emotion
In all its simplicity and elegance?
Monochrome has a surreal magic
That captures your attention
Strangely beguiling almost misleading
For it blurs the truths that appear
In the vividity of colour.
Yet it provides a stark definition
Devoid of any colour, yet not lifeless
It emotes through simplicity
Through the play of light and dark
Creating sensibilities and sustaining drama.
Both evocative and enigmatic in its elements
Inspite of the hidden hues.
Reminiscent of old world charm
Of a translucent transparency.
A simplification of the complexity.
A composure of composition.
A completeness of capture.
Touching the nerve of truth
It is not an easy task to confront
Cause to confront is to be ready for conflict
Be it any kind…
From mental social or physical and more
Conflicts are always unwanted.
But change is the only constant
And life moves on creating itself.
In any art and creative endeavour
Say even speaking & writing for that matter, there is much scope for influences and perceptions.
It is the nature of truth to transform
But not without chaos and confusion
Such is the nature of human frailty.
There in lies the strength of human spirit. (Contd)
Such a beautiful share…
Both the words and the vision
So beautifully in tune…
They speak so much with passion
Touching the core of the heart.
Indeed! What a conscious connection!
Today I am sharing a small part of an abstract painting I created earlier.
It gives me a splash of colours whenever I want a bright pop of colors to jumpstart my day.
Art speaks volumes without words.
Art is healing & therapeutic at the same time.
Correct choice of colours make all the difference They can enhance moods
In moments of melancholy
In times of restlessness..
In times of stress they can soothe the frayed nerves.
Yet what works for one may not work for another….
As every person has a unique sense of colour.
Creating is the art of making art, work towards a purpose.
Creating is also the art of allowing the flow as much as channeling the flow.
Share the Power of love …
a share of hope peace trust and joy!
Let our hearts be full of hope
Let our mind be filled with peace
Let our spirit be alive with trust
Let our soul dance with joy!
