Today I share my artwork

All is in the strength of the interconnections.

Sky Above, Earth Below & Fire Within

Like the sky above…

Be expansive

Unfurl your imagination

Extend yourself, reach beyond knowing

Life the earth below…

Be connected

Yet stay rooted to the ground

Have the steadfastness like the earth.

Like the fire within

Be spirited

Let your passion speak

Explore life & give it your all.

Bridge of Awareness

From the architect of time, the source creator  came a space of  nothingness (akash)from space came matter  (energy) from matter came  movement (wind, air) from movement came fluidity (flow, water) from fluidity came existence from existence emanated the spirit of life (the breath of life, fire passion).





The elements existence are a guide in an acknowledgement of the interdependence. An awareness of interconnections in an acceptance that everything exists in the subtlety of balance.  

The spirit of life and living is the bridge to our calling &purpose of being. As well as in the journey of the  being. The path is and will be ours and yet not just ours.

 Every move in time is interlinked in the bridge of time that we were, are and will be on. The bridge of time is in eternal cycle of motion. All matter constitutes one or more of  the elements in different proportions.

 While the mind of the matter  perceives it in thoughts, the heart of the matter senses. Mindful thoughts and heartfelt  feeling are both  real and unreal all at the same time. And consciousness is the bridge of awareness between the  extrinsic and the intrinsic,  between the learning and the knowing.

And in this understanding is the realization whole and complete of all as it is .

Life and Living

Whenever I come across a heart touching action, or a prose ,a poem or quote I will be sharing it here in this series…

Some people make the world a better place by their thoughts words and deeds...

When the sport turns to a dance…

When the feet move in a rhythm

All its own, in uniqueness

Artistry is acknowledged.

An Inspiring life

Friends
See, Brazil’s under 17 footbal coach Amadeu Carlos who is “just” 76 years old.
This is called Brazilian football magic…
He proves “Age is just number.”
Amazing skill, energy and stamina.

This above information is social media forward, yet when decided, I wanted to learn more about him. I found that his age is misconstrued.Yet whatever the age, age is just a number, his skill is clear to see and that’s what is beautiful to see.

Here is a (wiki ) snapshot of his life and living.

Carlos Amadeu Nascimento Lemos was a Brazilian footballer and manager who played as a left back. He represented Bahia as a player before injury curtailed his career. He went on to have a managerial career which spanned almost thirty years.

This is how he sums up his country and its relationship with their favorite sport….“In Brazil when a child is born, the first gift for him is a ball. Our relationship with football is huge. We are a footballing nation and we like that”

Dance of Nature


There is dance

In every leaf and flower

In every bud and bloom

In every twig and tree

In every turn and twist

Of nature’s creation.

There is the grace of uniqueness

Of wisdom beyond compare

All knowing, all pervading

To this Omnipresence …
I bow in Gratitude to this Grace.🙏

On Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm is the energy in the living

A beautiful state of flow in the being

Enthusiasm is often the reason for excellence

The challenge is in sustaining itself

From losing steam midway…

Perhaps due to lack of appreciation

Or motivation to be enthused

Making way for mediocrity

At work or at play.

Question is then how to be enthused

Into doing the same tasks differently

And break free from rut of routine

Very simple…

Stay hopeful, see life as a potential

Create the possibilities

It’s all in the way of envisioning

How you want to build your truths.

It’s all up to you!

Purpose of being

There is always a reason

Nothing  is accidental

There is always purpose of being.

Let the purpose become bigger

At every step of the way

Remember you are creating ripples

That are expanding your purpose

Of living , of being who you are.

As you are meant to be.

In the infinite abundance of being.

Spools from Spills

Some positive takes in an accidental spill…

To keep calm and address the lesson in the spill.

To turnover a spill to evolve for better
To sense a pattern of possibilities in a spill.

To challenge the statuesque through a spill.

To test skillsets learned from a spill
To move beyond in a dare with a spill

To spill some more and align the pattern formations

To envision hope beyond the accidental spill.

To create artworks from the potential in a spillover

To empathize with the spiller across the learning curve…

Spills become art and art spills over.

Art Matters

We need arts to explore our potential and understand ourselves


For the study and practice of arts opens us to discover different perspectives.


Art patterns itself through  creativity
And art flourishes in appreciation  and patronage.


But art emotes from the depth of the soul and spirit in the sensing.


Art can salvage the broken and the indifferent souls.

As much as channel  the creative  genius to express from within.


Art is both an intervention as much as  intrainment experience.


When the soul speaks art renders.

An Illusory Life

I wonder…


Where is the beginning


Of illusion in this illusory world?

In the many facets of life and living

Blending hues and tones

In Connection beyond compare

And yet unsure when asked

Where is the blend & breakpoint


In this ephemeral existence?


We are vulnerable beings


In this so called reality


Trying to understand

This illusory life


To the best of our abilities


To be all we can be!

Yet sublime is the point of saturation


Like the subtlety  of twilight zones


We are left wondering the why, when,what, who & how…

Of the ascent of light and the descents


Like how the morning breaks in.


Showering upon us the light of a new dawn.


Dawn to dusk,dusk to dawn


Creating the Circles of being


Life happens and we goes on…

Keeping the wonder alive!

Be you as you are…

You may…

Follow others to learn and imbibe

But you cannot become another

For you are created for a reason.

You carry your future in your today

Your life paves its own way

No one can be you or live like you.

You are not another or to be them.

Asserting the uniqueness of creation

Such is the way of nature.

Be you as you are…

Build Bridges

Time evolves one and all, come what may.
Yesterday’s mountains have become paths today
Love of life will show the way
As you keep building bridges not walls I say.

A day of silence

~ Silence ~

A day of Silence
Can be a pilgrimage in itself.
A day of Silence
Can help you listen
To the Soul play
In marvelous lute and drum.
Is not most talking
A crazed defense of a crumbling fort?
I thought we came here
To surrender in Silence,
To yield to Light and Happiness,
To Dance within
In celebration of Love’s Victory!

~ Hafiz ~

Be silent and sense the stillness

A million moves may be more

Are manifesting in this now

Hear the music unfold its rhthym

Be still and sense the moves

For stillness is full of movements

In the depth of Silence

We witness the dance within.
