Revolve & evolve

The world may seem to revolve around you
But you revolve along with the world.
So to be in balance is to take a hold
Of the space you are in
To find your bearing, before you react.
To optimize your response
Begin to understand and discern
Where another is in space, in thoughts
In actions and deeds.

To listen actively
To empathize with their needs and wants…
To be able to see the ‘Us beyond the I’
To shift the ‘Me to the We’

This is what will truly help
Us to understand where we are.
Life is like that,
Its meant to evolve and grow
Along in the flow!

Giving way for the new!

Yesterday the flower was in full bloom
Filling the senses with unabashed beauty
Today it gently wraps into itself
Knowing it’s deed is done
Letting itself move into the background
Retreating as a way for another to bloom.

There are moments in the sun
For one and all
Such is the circle of life
How gracefully the flower accepts
The truth of life and living
Every flower leaves a lesson behind
As it disappears into the sunset
You are born to bloom
Life life lovingly!

Let go & let flow.

You are blessed

For you have the power

Of choice with you

So choose what to accept

And what to let go!

Happy Festivities

Happy Diwali to all here.
Sharing a few musings from my mother.



Tamaso ma Jyothirgamaya.

On this Diwali let us
Illuminate our hearts.
Ignorance n impediments
Vanish in that brilliance.

Let Faith, prayer, compassion
And humility fill the place
While false beliefs, prejudices
Hatred & anger
Dissolve without a trace.

Past year has taught us
Many lessons.
Many have learnt
The real values our lives need.


A disciplined lifestyle
With resilience will take us far.
The core values our ancestors had
Are not mere lessons in vain.
They are real essence of health
With gratitude, embracing all.

Time to rectify our deeds
Done in the quest to excel.
Mother Nature knows well
How to balance & dwell.
Let’s co-exist without harming,
Valuing all lives, be it in any form.

Let this Festival of Lights
Bring harmony & happiness.
Together we will protect
This precious divine gift
Undoing all our wrongs
Restoring what truly belongs.

A Very Happy Deepawali
To all of you,
Be safe and healthy.
Stay blessed ever.

As we celebrate this beautiful festival of lights lets all take some time to connect with the cosmic lights and feel its blessed presence within us all 🙂

Nature fascinates


We explore it in unique ways
Some of us lookup at the sky
Admiring the infinite vastness
Of spaces above and beyond

Some of us look down  at the ground
Preferring  to  dig deep into nature
To witness the foundation  of living
Exploring the very roots of the life


Some choose to dream and envision
What might be, in  hope for the morrow
Some sit in stillness  witnessing their breath
Knowing all the truths of life is within.

Some prefer to dance with life
In this now as it unfolds
Accepting nature as it appears
Preferring  to make best of its moments.

The Journey



As is above
So is below
Reflection speaks
As is within.
The journey of life
Mirrors our way of being

‘In every moment of time care to be rooted to the stillness in your movements…
Care to acknowledge gratefully this strength in the rootedness.’

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.

Horizon Of Hope



Every horizon once reached

It reveals another

Beckoning at a distance…

Horizon is born of hope

Of the beyond in this now.


Horizon are meant to hope

To aspire to reach beyond

In the yonder across the horizon

Where the sky converges…

Is a matter of knowing

There is always more

Of natures grace.

Such is the abundance

Of unending hope.

Music

Music can be elusive yet effusive

Explosive and yet an epitome of blissfulness.

You may choose to dance and flow it with it

And know how blessed are those

Who can create music to tune into.

Yet you may not own its flow

You simply owe it your joy!

Make room



A simple reason to better the self
Is to evolve as you grow.
In living life
Is the wisdom garnered.

Your deeds create space
Making room for more.
Your thoughts manifest
All that you deeply intend.

Choose to add and subtract
With the power of choice
That rests with you
Add the good, minus the bad.

Choice rests with you
Choose well!

Dance as you are.

Dance even it’s in your own heart

Dance with all of your being

Dance to flow through in life

Dance to free yourself from unwanted

 

Dance to let go of the pain you feel

Dance to speak your own truth

Dance away your restless thoughts


 

Dance to bond with this now

Dance to share from the heart

Dance often dance from where you are!


Dance …As you are! Just Dance!

State of Earth Today

Are we cause of all suffering
We are not only the cause
We are the reason
For the ‘State of Earth’ today.

We have breached all laws of nature
We have plundered and marauded
Not only our own
But innocent voiceless sentient beings.

Our crimes are heinous
Our ways unethical
Morality or humanity
Is completely missing
Across the world today.

Our actions corelates
To the price we all must pay!
We speak without kindness
We act without empathy
We are ruthless and hopeless.

Tilting natures precious balance
By our callous self serving ways.
Our earth has taken a toll
Bearing patiently in witness mode

Centuries of abuse and neglect
Nature has no time to be silent
It’s truly now or never.
Nature must begin to equalize.

Man has broken every law of nature
Now nature needs to self repair
Humankind must change their ways
Seek ways to maintain and sustain earth.

Just being human is not enough
We must practice our humanity
Else the wrath of nature
Can no longer be contained.

Our ways had got out of hand
Life was getting unbearable
And so beyond control.
And way beyond hope.

In the madness of being modern
The malady of our times
Values and ethics were trashed
Respect and regard were binned

Stress and tension
Anxiety and panicking
Sleeplessness and fatigue
Plaguing the world over

Materialism and indulgence
Hitting an all time high
In greed apathy and indifference
We took our world for granted.

Now nature is reclaiming
What’s rightfully hers
Her pristine glory
Her beauty her peace.

Now nature has put humans in cages.
Animals and birds roam free,
Roads are empty, rivers are cleaner
Pollution has given way to purer air.

While mankind is locked down.
Nature is restoring to sustain herself
Hope we realize & amend our ways
For the State of earth today.

On Letting Go

“To be truly happy and contented, you must let go of what it means to be happy or content.” – Confucius

What is so difficult about the letting go?

Is it the fear of not being able to have it again when you need it most?

Or is it about the holding on to memories that were?

Or is it the attachment to things that is most difficult to release?

When we realize how dispensable we are and how transient is our being…

We will begin to see the world with a fresh pair of eyes.

We will know, nothing is given

Neither our lives nor our nature

Every manifestation must evolve

To another state in the flow

Then we may perhaps be able

To accept letting go as part of the flow!

Be in love

When you are in love…

Love makes you hear music, you have never heard before,
Love makes your steps look like a dance.
Love makes your heart flutter in abandon.
Love makes you see the truth of beauty in the ordinary.
Love is the gift of grace from your soul.

Be in love. Be in love
With yourself and the world around.
And make both a better place to be in.

Be in love with life…

Live life lovingly!
