Wisdom in the Moments

Artwork and verses by Savvy Raj

Wisdom is in the ordinary moments.

All the answers we seek, rests with us.

Life teaches as life plays on…

Allow life to live…through the changes.

Why Write?

Treat your thoughts tenderly

Like petals of life’s myriad beauties

Watch your unique thoughts appear

Out of nowhere and everywhere

And when they do

Why don’t u take some time out

To nourish your self

Jot them down as they come

Rushing through or slow

It matters not what you write

As long as it makes your soul free.

Savvy

Writing is an expressive experience. The one that has many benefits in itself. From the psychological point of view where it makes you think and communicate better to the emotional aspects of bettering your ability to deal with your own emotions. It helps you work with your pain and process the thoughts in a rethink. It helps you stay motivated as you can record your progression as well. It helps sort out your own thoughts.

A significant aspect worth considering is when you focus on the positive and write with an attitude of gratitude for life itself there is much more health benefits than writing with grudges.

Most importantly as you write you are able to let go of worries and stresses that you may accumulate in the course of time through the physical act of writing.

Personally speaking, having studied a bit of Graphology, I have always felt that the very action of writing your thoughts on paper is healing through the movement itself An act fast disappearing in today’s changing times . Children today write much lesser physically with a pen on paper.

The truth is writing is a greater healer in itself.

And to share your writing is to learn some more.

Every writer has many or no reason about what, when and why they write …what is yours?
Care to share?

Savvy

Keep writing! keep sharing!

5 Tips To Breakthrough The Rut of Routine  

Rut of Routine

Are you feeling you are living a routine life

You get up and you do things mechanically without a trace of being alive to it.

Do you feel life is boring and just another day to rise and do your duties as a chore?

Do you sometimes wish for the day to end before it even begins?

Do you feel life is too complicated and desperately want a change of scene…

Perhaps then you are passing through the path of nowhere.

Life often hands you wisdom at the time you are in the path of least resistance because it wants you to listen keenly.

It wants you to understand you are your own path maker and path breaker, you are your own teacher and tutor.

You are your best friend and guide.

It wants you to sense the futility of living so that you can finally bridge over and honour the living you. And perhaps then strive to nourish the moments of life left with you willingly.

Going berserk in helplessness, sensing pain or loss and loneliness are part of phases we may all move through…. at some point in our life. The choice is with us how to find ourselves than lose ourselves. Some find solace and comfort in others along the path when the going gets too tough. Some are givers and some takers in the interbeing of life and living And travellers we all already are.

Here are 5 steps you can take to shake free from the rut of routine.

1: Work on Self-observation:

Observe more of your environment. Develop healthy interests in the world you are living. Care to understand more. Be open to learning.

2 Value & acknowledge one another:

Many times life feels like a standstill and as if its caught in a rut of routine and mundane because it is truly how one is living. When moments are given value over things, when people around start to matter, life starts to change and evolve for the better. Make an effort to greet people extend polite courtesies without expectation and acknowledge another as they are. Life starts to transform vividly as you start showing interest.

3 Love your self & cultivate gratitude:

Balance the relationship with yourself and others. Show self-respect and care to love the person you truly are. Cultivate the habit of being grateful for the blessings of life …. it holds you in good stead.

4 Trust yourself more:

Develop your sense of self-worth and self-esteem as you value your thoughts you will learn to trust yourself more in your deeds.

5 Share more. Reflect the positive:

As you learn and engage with the world you will come across much that inspires and intrigues you. Share the positive messages from the universe and send the world your goodwill in care.

Someday when you truly need, the world returns it back to you manifold…such is the way of this circle of life and living as we are strengthened simply is raising of our positive interconnects as travellers in the interbeing.

Rhythm Divine

The beauty in every breath of life is in its impressions in the expressions through the tones, shades, in its patterns & rhythms.

This sets it apart…such is the uniqueness to every breath in the being.

Lessons from nature!

Green and saffron
colors of prosperity and detatchment.

One leads to attach,
One to detatch.
Both gives fulfillment
One externally while
the other internally.

Both in abundance.
No force , in free will.
Selecting the path is in our choices.

Anjana

Above is a photo I took at my home in my terrace garden which invoked an interpretation from my mother Anjana this morning.

Green for prosperity (green earth full of hidden treasures), saffron is for detatchment (color code for sanyasam or renunciation).

Sharing this as it speaks so simply of the juxtaposition of balance in nature that abounds. In colour, form, shape etc in all perspectives of life and living.

Paradox of Emotions

Every moment is a cornucopia of sensing
Fleeting thoughts in the making
Feelings and emotions reveal themselves.
Between action and inaction

And in the stillness in between
Like the ebb and flow on the tides
While at times amplifying & complicating situations
By tilting the tuning of the body and mind.

Sometimes overpowering almost self
defeating
Sometimes compelling to release the stress withholding
To ease up the being & free up some space
Between thought and action.

Think of your emotions
As a bridge in between
To pause and reflect a while
And then to respond.

Respect your self and own your emotions.
For all your emotions make you, you.
Feel good that you can express
In so many shades and tones.

Emotions are interlinked
In every moment of life and living
All the while authenticating and revealing
The person you truly are.
