Untold stories

So many stories

Echoing through the eras

Etched in the sands of time.

So many patterns formed in the living

A proof of things that were

And shaped by the situations

In the challenges of life

That was, is and will be.

“The patterns are never random but a part of a history signifying the survival mode.”

IT’S A HI TECH LIFE!

Touch a button and everything is downloaded or uploaded. Isn’t that the trend everywhere now whatever the field, this push button convenience seems to be taking over, whether it’s publishing, the kitchen, home front luxuries or travel or communications entertainment etc? This is convenience at its best where there is
minimal or no effort and the result is plain to see. Whatever happened to no pain no gain? Anyway I am not complaining here, hi techno gizmos you are most welcome.

The thing that is a cause for concern is that with all this easy way of living that technology brings forth there is a paradigm shift in the thinking of this new generation of hi tech users who are so hooked up to these gadgets of convenience that they expect it to be so in all others areas of life too… The emotional ,physical ,personal aspects of life cannot somehow become machine like and that’s how it is seeming to be.

Many are aware of their growing sense of inadequacies in mutual relationships. The lack of care and concern due to time, and work pressure is somehow seen to be adjusted and neutralized by hi tech gadgets in our households. So much that the person lets the products of convenience make up for his personal presence or absence in family situations and experiences.

Similarly if one notices most students are averse to listening to another and taking in information from another as their attention span for personal communication is overridden by convenience of Internet, chats and social networks and group calls so why bother.

What happened to good old teaching? Actually the educationists to prefer going tech savvy as they feel that they would be lagging behind otherwise.
The issue for concern is larger than all these little details, slowly machines have replaced humans in most spheres of life. The advent of machines is real and right there in front of us.

Every house in the city and even villages are connected with Internets, so there is a network of telecommunications system without any hazard control measure in place.

In most of the developing countries the health standards and safety for mobile towers, radiations hazards in private personal and public spaces are totally disregarded. People seem to be more interested in getting the job done quickly… with lack of time stress levels are on a all time high and no one seems to be bothered if there are reports published once in a while by some concerned individuals about the dangers of radiations from all these devices of modern technology. The page is turned over with not even a response as no one seems to have the time. ‘ Let someone else to do the job or let’s wait and see if it’s really that bad or so far I haven’t experienced anything. So why bother,’is the care a damn attitude prevalent across most sections of the thinking population.

Lack of empathetic responses makes us more and more mechanical in our approach and we seem to be losing the humane side of us. This is exactly what is happening on a large scale. People are growing indifferent and unapproachable, shrewd and over efficient for a purpose. There is no genuineness left in most relationships as well, everything is for what can I make from this.

So whether its education or otherwise the trend is to conveniently download information and present your work as done instead of contemplative thought and deep understanding. There are very few individuals who are not caught in this web of technology and their numbers is dwindling…

It’s time we wake up to core values or they would be lost forever. An e-card will wish you on your birthday and a cake and roses will be sent to you by post but there will be no one to eat it with. Just you and your gadgets how about it?

Compassion Connects

We are given the gift of life
In this gift are many gifts
That are necessary to thrive as humans.
Though we may not think much of them.

Each gift is interlinked to the other
We are meant to sense at different times
We are meant to share with one another
Our gifts are meant to refine our beings.

One such gift is an ability for compassion
Without it we cease to be humane
Deeply intertwined with loving kindness
A share of compassion can lift our spirits.

How beautiful a world we would be
When each life lives with compassion
For the world beyond around and within
Knowing the preciousness of life itself.

The beauty of compassion
Is in its flow
Emnating from the depth of ones soul
Reaching out in a boundless bond

Caring sharing
Helping healing
Sensing feeling
Loving and living
Compassion connects and how!

Extend a helping hand and bring the Gift of Compassion in life and living.

Life comes a full circle

Who has not felt ripples
At some point or another
Life comes a full circle
With its curves of ups and downs.

In the course of living
There will be many ups
Where the ego is boosted
And the spirit seems to soar.

And in the same breath
There will be many downs
Of grief despair and loss
Sometimes beyond compare.

As life continues its path
Between the nowhere and somewhere
Between the pain and pleasures
Know there is an art to living.

Call it the wisdom of moderation
To stay clear of tilting in the extremes
Of emotions that manifest
In life and living.

Sense it all, both pain and pleasures
For what is life after all
A little laughter to fill your hearts
And let your tears flow if they must
Just don’t dwell in it for too long…

Move on, learning to flow with life
You are no mountain to stand unmoved
Or stagnant pond collecting debris
You are filled with the wonder of life.

Just like trees, shed your pain
Like dried autumn leaves
Let go of your worries
Allow yourself to flourish again.

You are meant to flow
Like a stream in the river of time
You are meant to grow
And evolve along the way.

Choose to care and share
With your fellow travellers
For each life matters, somehow somewhere
To one and all, along the way!

On Connection

Universal Oneness is an awareness

In reflections of the truth of the being

Interweaved and interconnected in every life .

Strength shines through the vulnerabilities.

As a power in the very fragility

Touched by divine grace

Enmeshed in the senses

Fired in the cauldron of life and living

Comes a consciousness of the flow

In and around us

Beyond the illusion of separation.

Is the dance of connection.

A Relevant Message

A great message that just had to be shared . Am sure we all can resonate with this.

All I did was add some imagery to the words!

Windows of the Soul

Waltz of the Eyes

If eyes could speak
They would say a thousand words
May be more
Yes eyes speak more than words can tell
Have you seen eyes up close
They say much more

There is defiance denial
Hurt and humility
Fear and pain
Sadness and confusion
Longing for approval
And anguish of anxiety
There is judgement and approval
Brazeness and courage
Hope and trust
Mystic and magic
Enigma so magnetic
And yet there is also
Surprise and innocence
Charm and grace
Kindness and Generosity
A Light of Love
For life and living.

Waltz of the Eyes indeed! Speaking much without words that portrays the undeniable truths of life .

How much life experiences can speak through these windows of our soul! Check it for yourself … so much to read in there. May be you can see much more ….do share!
