Paradox of Connection

Life is strange

When it pulls us away

From one another.

Being at opposing ends

We are closer than ever before.

Distance brings people together they say…

Yet when we are right there

The connection feels lost sometimes

As if its strangers not a family

Life plays the game

Putting people together

And creating spaces and distances.

Time seems to slip away

As clock ticks on…

Such is the paradox of connections.

Perfect balance may be an ideal

But delving in, finding the root cause

Of these shifts in the heart and mind

Is important for the future.

We cannot live life by ourselves

We are intricately webbed together

What to speak of Connections

That goes beyond one lifetime.

So much more than what we see

Or even can imagine.

Miracles happen

What seems like a miracle

Is a work in progress

In awe and wonder

That springsforth a smile

Miracles happen

In utter faith

And relentless hope

Stay hopeful

Keep the faith

While Praying for the world to heal. ūüôŹ

Light reflects light

Every moment that we choose to shine as bright as we can,

We begin to sense the lightness in the being.

In sensing the blessings of light

Light reflects Light!

Words of wisdom

The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.

The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding.

The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm nor the voice that echoes it.

And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither.

For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man. And even as each one of you stands alone in God’s knowledge, so must each one of you be alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth.

Kahlil Gibran…

One of my favorite writers with profound words of wisdom.

I had been introduced to his books as a teenager but have revisited his works especially ‘ The Prophet ‘ many times just to soak in the learnings.

Learning is best done in willingness & curiosity to explore the beyond.

Teaching is best done in understanding the learnings and the learner.

Learning never stops it is like a river that flows…

The teacher creates curiosity for learning takes you to the river banks of knowledge and then allows you to quench your thirst, assimilate the learning to expand your horizons of learning.

There is a pool

I received this beautiful forward years ago that I cherish. And I so enjoy seeing it every once in a while.

A few musings…

There is a pool
I often sit by
with my thoughts
In fact all of me.

Its a pool that inspires
Creativity in collaboration
Its a pool that invites
Connections in association.

A pool of collectives
That move me beyond
The rut of mediocrity
To an all expansive space.

A pool of equanimity
That keeps me balanced
A pool centered inside
That aligns it all to the core.

A pool is an interesting place, as it is allowing yet contained.The circle of thoughts, in a pool allow space of contemplation.

Without the hurry and haste, to sense the moment as it is.

Every now and then choose to sit with/by your own pool of peace sensing the peace you already have.

To all the dancers

To all the dancers and those who choose to waltz with life….

As dancers we are a lucky lot!
We are totally able to dance with time…
Move with it on time,
Or take the offbeat road to reverse and revel the joy of reflections in the rivers of time.

A Cup Of Cheer

Someone the other day asked me, are you a coffee or tea person.

I wonder…

All my life so far, have never been a coffee or tea person.
But of late I am sensing what a cup of steaming hot goodness can do for my spirit.

It’s not a tea or coffee that I want,
Its a cup of cheer, that soothes me and rejuvenates me .
Sure its not a habit so far , but it certainly good to pause every once in a while and take a sip and sense the world a little bit more in time.

My favorites …

I love the plain old ginger lemon & honey tea. Or even like a herb/ spice infused cinammon tea!

As for coffee very rarely, I enjoy the aroma of filtered South Indian coffee.

But the reason I drink a cup of goodness and what I would want most is…

Something that warms my heart
Something that sweetens my thoughts
Something that allows me to pause
To rest a while to gather my self.

What about you?
Are you a coffee or tea person?
Do you need it as your morning wake me up?
Do you have a craving for tea or coffee?
Do share if you are fond of coffee or tea & why?
