Waves of Change

The world is in a constant state of flux

And change is the only constant.

Change refreshes perspectives

As we see the world with a fresh pair of eyes.

Change is meant to be.

Change is the inevitable truth

For nothing can stay the same.

All moves on to change.

But change can be most challenging

Trying and tenacious to bear

Resisting change never helps

Adaptability is the key

To Respond than react to changes

Everything is meant to flow

And evolve along in time.

Change too will outgrow itself

Keep the trust and faith

Have patience and believe

It shall soon settle or pass

Whatever it is, it moves on!

All is a matter of change!

Joy Of Writing

Today I touched a milestone on WordPress.

Have completed more than 365 days of writing a post every single day.

WordPress reminds me I have written a post every day for 365 days in a row.
Here I reminisce about my experience of writing a post every day on WordPress.

What is it to write 365 days consecutively?
A lot of passion patience and perseverance.
But above all is the joy of writing…

Looking back I realise the amount of contentment in the personal fulfilment of a promise I made to myself to write every day for a year.

The 365 days have certainly had their share of challenges..like relocation, health issues medical emergencies, and ensuing operations and recovery phase, marriages and demise in the family and a host of all those sudden changes of both the personal and professional kind that is prone to occur in the span of an entire year’s time.

But the whole idea for me was to see how committed I was to my writing and if writing every day would make me short of ideas ever.

What was the purpose? Simply to see if I can truly sustain in making time to do something I love and enjoy every bit of it for a long period of time.

The only clause I set for my self is to never write with a pressure to publish but to write with a passion for self-expression and send out positively charged messages through these words into space… hoping it will make a difference!

My heartfelt gratitude to my wonderful readers and followers for your support and insights that sparked much of the creativity.

Some would take time to share relevant quotes and resources, some beautiful thoughts that were truly inspiring and some would send emails sharing their personal stories and experiences and even express a desire to connect and collaborate on artistic endeavours.

So this year of committed and consistent writing on varied topics has had its rewards too inspite of the grind. Like an offer for conducting my dance workshops. an opportunity to speak on motivation and womens empowement, invitations to judge local school competitions, write and compile a book of these blogs and two enquiries to ghostwrite their books. More importantly to have come across some truly amazing people and their writings many of who have turned into great friends here in these interactions.

Good start I would say! There is, after all, no writer without a reader. Thank you all for your generous words and comments that kept pouring in motivation required to continue in those challenging times.

Looking back at the posts published, I found my life experiences of the day moving like imagery through these words and I am truly happy to have written and published my positive reflections in time.

Sharing my thoughts on what writing truly is to me in verses…

The Joy Of Writing

Never force the words out
For then there is no joy.
In fact, let your words flow from you
And remember you are just a channel.

The giving vessel will pour the words
Water this gift of creativity.
Your innate sense of understanding
Will summarize and summon the words for you.

Be proactive and prepared.
Provide time for reflections.
Reference from life and experiences.
Contemplate and convey.

The joy of writing is in the trust
Of allowing and accepting
The endless possibilities
Of creativity in the flow.

Know your thoughts are unique
In the way, they arrive and arrange
In the flow is the magic
That is playing out through you.

Enjoy witnessing the tumble through
Of words in their own arrangement.
Trust in yourself and your maker
For all is pre ordained in time.

Virtual Illusions

Caught hook line and sinker

Wherever we go

Wherever we are

The web follows us

Connectivity is a boon and bane

For there is always the peril

Of being caught up deeply without knowing.

Minutes melt into hours

Before you free yourself from its clutches.

In its tempting interactions..

Unaware are many, of its effects

On the health of humanity

Radiation, fatigue and syndromes

Affected can’t put down their phones

As people seems helpless without it.

It’s time to draw a line

To regulate time spent on the net.

To be aware of the dangers of high speed wi fi connections.



Distance and shield from harmful (Emr) radiations where ever and whenever possible.

Switch off phones at night.

Switch off phones at night.
You will find yourself regenerating.

And your wellbeing will improve.

Make sure to spend time out in the real world.

Before the web snatches all your time.

A journey of awakenings

No two lives can be compared
For they are not the same
Not even at birth, although they are humans
The life experiences along lifetimes
Decide the nature of the being
And nurture then interpolates itself
And love makes way for itself
To flow into the being.

In the web of complexities of life
The being starts and courses its journey
In the dance of the elements
The being senses the truth of life in the living.

In searching and seeking
In awe and wonder
In beauty and grace
In the chaos and challenges
In the success and failures
It finds its bearings and builds resilience

Every life aligns towards its calling in time
Seeking decreases accepting increases
To refine the process of awareness
In the journey of conscious awakenings.

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.”

Journey unto being!

A Digital Painting by Savvy Raj

In the farthest path without a trail

The soul might find its root of being

The heart and mind will set its sail

And stir the soul into its state of knowing

Beyond the path, that’s homeward bound

The journey is the test of the perseverance of will

To reach the home roots of many lifetimes that the soul has found.

Wise to persevere to reach the place unknown and known

The path is forgotten but will be forged on just fine.

When in faith the seeds have been sown

With a will to reach, crossing the trials beyond yours and mine … 🙂

Flowing in harmony

Flowing along is a sign of strength

Misconstrued to be a weakness

It is an instrument in awareness

Of awakening to the potential.

In respecting the harmony in nature

There is so much to understand

In the path of non resistance

In letting go doubts & fear of the worst.

To thrive in the flow of possibilities.

In between the pressure of momentum

In between the dance of forces

Occurs the buoyancy of being

A self adjusted neutrality

A Flow in harmony.

Steer away from impulsive resistance

Whatever you resist persists

Yes while resistance is natural in life

Resistance may create tension

Yet it can be a signal of change

In channelling this very resistance.

In allowing to let go completely

Soon tension eases in the flow

In perseverance & patience.

In response than reaction

Creating positive transmutation.

In thoughts words and deeds

Sifting & sailing through your perspectives

Till harmony becomes you.

Nature is listening!

Yes… the reality is stark
Deforestation everywhere
Forest fires and climate changes
Disappearing rain forests

Global warming, polar vortex
Extinction of rare species
Food and medicine adulteration
Air water and noise pollution

Materialism leading to corruption
Repercussions of rising terrorism
Mismanagement and misconduct
Leading to apathy and war

Exposure from radiation
Indifference on an all time high
Alarming toll from disasters
Both natural and man made.

Is this what we have done with our life?
Time is slipping by, to make a difference
In being concerned, to save our world
To become a responsible world citizen.

Making some changes to our lifestyle
Supporting and sustaining green living
Volunteering our lifeskills
For our environment needs us now.

In taking time out to help out
Much can be done by each of us!
Manage available resources
Reduce recycle and reuse.

Learn to sustain and support it
Plant trees and reduce emissions
Nurture the world with care
For nature is listening!

Savvy

Every step towards a more caring kinder world matters!
Each of us can do much from wherever we are

All it needs is awareness and action
In responsible ways
That helps and heals our world
Yes its truly hightime to nurture our mother nature!

Project 201

Just a little heartfelt share

Had started a project to write

A post every single day

A while ago had written to a 100.

Project 101

And I was super glad for it!

To share is to learn some more.

Every piece of writing

Had a learning in it for me

Sometimes may be more

Insights from the comments

Or an offer of collaboration.

Or just the simple joy in resonance

That resounds it’s way back .

Thoughts shared and appreciated

In mutual understanding of the flow.

Positive responses keeps us going

Encouraging is the support

I received along the way

From many of you, wonderful writers.

That I decided to keep at it

Trusting myself to go on

And write my heart out.

Stairway beckons

A picture that is open to so many interesting interpretations…

Is this a stairway to heaven
The path that sets you free
Steps that lead the way
To the light of eternal truth

Your life is given to you
A knowing is bestowed upon you
In hope that you will seek
And find the truth of your being.
All answers are within you
To sense and understand
Life is both hell and heaven if you wish.
All it needs is a stairway to the within.

In the rigours of life and living
Find those moments that move you beyond simply existing!
Search not the whole world over
In confusion and chaos over the emerging illusions.
For in all the facade of perceptions
The truth is simple and visible
If you choose to actually notice.

Seek if you must
The truth of your own life.
The purpose of your own being.
Choose to be responsible.
To acknowledge the wonder you are
Make friends with your inner self.
Treat it with care and consideration
Align your thoughts and action.
You will soon find within yourself
The stairway to the heaven in you!

Strength of a Woman

In the lives of many women

Being strong is not an option

It is a necessity!

In a world riddled with inequalities

In a world full of double standards

Standing up for yourself

Becomes a tool for survival.

In those tricky moments

In a blink of an eye

Push comes to shove

Pleasure turns to pain

Hurt and betrayal

Seems to fill the air

There she is, left standing alone

To fend for herself on her own.

It is then that she meets fear in the eye

Faces the dark side of humanity

Sensing power in her vulnerability.

Who says a woman is weak?

Watch her rise like a phoenix!

Tremendous is her tenacity!

Resourceful is her resiliency!

The strength of a woman

Braves through the rising storm

Daring beyond the hurt and pain

Fighting through the wrong doings

She moves on to heal and build

In hope and faith in a new morrow

For she knows in her heart

Tommorow is another day!

Savvy

My dedication to Women all around the world!

Every Day is Women’s Day !

Happy Women’s Day!

Little things

Life is…

A little ray of light.
A little smile, a little laughter.
A little company, a little love.
A little gift of kindness.
A little gleam of sunshine.
A little sparkle to our day
.
A little glimmer of hope.
A little hand that cares to help.
A little wish that comes true.
A little touch in loving care.
A little wave of joy.
A little walk across the bend
.


A little rain on a hot summers day.
A little warmth on a cold winters day.
A little sunshine on a cloudy day.
A little shade in a hot deserted road.
A little water in moments of thirst.
A little moonbeam on a dark night.
A little twinkle of the starlit sky
.

A little dance to fill our senses.
A little song to renew the spirit.
A little fun to freshen us up
.
A little chocolate to make your day.
A little comfort in moments of despair.
A little ride on country roads.
A little prayer in the bliss of grace.
A little book to unwind at night!

Savvy

It is in these little things that life renews and restores faith in life once again. Life goes on ….

Take a little moment to live lovingly and notice the little things in this now as it is.

As someday these little things matter a great deal!

My article in Spanish.

A dear reader has sent me a link I want to share … It is his translation of my recent article Flow with Life.

Happy to share this here for my Spanish speaking readers.Thank you Ignacio-orna-nacho

for your kind effort and share.

For all language aficionados in any new language, there is a draw of nuances of the culture and its interpretations in the flow in both the way it is spoken and written.And that is often beautiful to note.

FLUYE CON LA VIDA- (FLOW WITH LIFE- SAVVY RAJ)

FLUYE CON LA VIDA- (FLOW WITH LIFE- SAVVY RAJ)

Texto original en Inglés “Flow with life” de Savvy Raj

El que cambiemos es inevitable, es Ley de Vida pero tú eres quien está a cargo de cómo el cambio te impacta.

Aliento y movimiento:

Somos la suma de nuestras partes individuales. No hay corazón sin nuestra mente y ninguna acción sin nuestra percepción.

No hay dos momentos de nuestra vida que sean iguales. Nuestro cuerpo está hecho de células que se renuevan a tiempo. Las emociones y el comportamiento que manifestamos son profundamente integrales a cómo nos sentimos acerca de nosotros mismos y la situación en cuestión … por lo que nuestros movimientos son tan únicos como lo somos nosotros.

Cultivar la conciencia de nuestra propia respiración puede brindarnos el apoyo necesario y la sanación interna a través de los caprichos de la vida y nuestro modo de vivir.

Solo asegúrate de sentir tu calma interior y ser uno con tu aliento, sin importar la situación en la que te encuentres. Esa es la forma en que te puedes conectar gradualmente contigo mismo en un nivel más profundo.

Mientras más conectado estés con tu aliento, gradualmente comenzarás a relajarte en el momento.

Ajustando tu aliento y movimiento

Deja que tu aliento guíe y lidere tu movimiento. Valore las energías sutiles de su propio ser que abarque su propia respiración.

Siente la integración de tu aliento y tus movimientos. La respiración le da a tu movimiento una forma y dirección. Por lo tanto, no solo puede vincular su respiración y su movimiento, sino también practicar la iniciación de tus movimientos con la respiración.

Tu conciencia aumentará gradualmente de cómo tu propia inspiración y espiración se utilizan en tus movimientos. Lo que potencia y da energía a tus acciones y lo que calma y ayuda a la relajación. ¡Y cómo puede fluir envolvente y abarcante, conectándose y complementándose como un baile elegante!

Tan pronto como empieces a practicar, aprenderás a bailar con ello.

Change is inevitable, but you are the one in charge of how the change impacts you.

Breath and Movement:

We are the sum of our individual parts There is no heart without our mind and no action without our sensing.

No two moments of our lives are alike. Our body is made of cells that are renewed in time. Emotions and behaviour that we manifest are deeply integral to how we feel about ourselves and the situation at hand … so our movements are as unique as we are.

Cultivating an awareness of our own breath can give us much needed support and inner healing through the vagaries of life and living

Just make sure to sense your inner calm and be one with your breath no matter the situation you are in. That is the way you can gradually connect with yourself on a deeper level.

The more connected you are with your breath you gradually begin to relax in the moment.

Attuning your Breath and Movement

Let your breath guide and lead your movement. Value the subtle energies of your own self that encompasses your own breath.

Sense the integration of your breath and your movements. Breath gives your movement a shape and direction. So not only can you link your breath and your movement but also practise initiating your movements with your breath.

Your awareness will gradually increase of how your own breath (inhale)and out breath (exhale) are being used in your movements. What powers and energizes your actions and what calms and assists relaxation. And how it can flow enveloping and encompassing, connecting and complementing each other like an elegant dance!

Soon in practice, you will learn to

Dance with it ‘

That’s how you learn to flow and dance with life!
