Art of Discernment

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
Just remember
Nobody is perfect
But you are almost there!

Dance baby dance…

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!

When Simplicity Speaks

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.

Retaining charecter.

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

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)

Passion Afire

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!

Splash of Colours



 


 


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.
