Middle path of peace

True peace flows
In the Middle path.
In between the extremes
Of nature is the path.

Extreme states create vulnerability
For the very strength of rigidity.
Is in its ability to structure into solidity
But solidity may not quantify solidarity.

Shaping matter to form
Is prone to creating cracks
In the spaces between shapes
And gaps are prone to fragility.

To thrive in the optimum
Is to value continuum
Which brings adaptability
Along with acceptability.

Our beautiful world
This ball of blue
Has much at stake
In these times of vulnerability

Our nations may play on
With tactics and goodwill
Balancing acts in deliberation
Taking much in consideration

To reach out
To stay put
To align
To withdraw

For extreme states
Are a weakness in itself
Extreme powers by itself
A very dangerous tool.

Denoting self destruction
As much as calamity in chaos
The solution is thus
Steering in the middlepath.

When structure get too rigid
Allow spaces for destress
When situations becomes hostile
Breath in to empathise

When war of words ensues
Consider the art of negotiations
For it is never bullets that truly win
It is people who do.

Steer in the path of peace
Allay fears and acknowledge the futility
Of living in the extremes.
Tread in awareness of the middle path.

Peace is not won in battles
Peace reigns in the heart of man
Make way for inner light to step out
Let peace and goodwill guide the way!

Nature of nature

The nature of nature…

Nature is full of vibration.

Never truly silent

For it is alive with pure energy.

Always a wise companion.

In moments that you need

Some respite and understanding.

Its very nature shows the way.

Seek nature to energize your being.

Seek its freshness of spirit

When the world gets too weary

Every once in a while.

Nature never competes.

It is never in a hurry.

Nature never rushes you

It continues on its path

As it seems meant to!

Allow your own nature

to blend with the bliss of nature.

Sense its synchrony

Envision its endurance

Marvel its magnificence

Wonder at its wisdom

Connect with its composure

Understand its inate balance.

In itself by itself with itself .

In and around you.

Know you are nature

And nature is you.

Ultimate Oneness in the diversity

Such is the nature of nature.

On usefulness

The search for meaning

Is never in vain

There is always a meaning

To life and living.

One or a million reflections

May be more

At times can lead

To a miracle in the making.

One or a million drafts

May lead us to a perfect design

One or a million words

May be more…

Can bring on the inner genius

One or a million works of art

May be more…

Delivers a masterstroke.

Each step is of value

And somehow significant

To some one somewhere

As much as…

To the utimate whole!.

If something seems to be useless to one person, there is always a possibility of so many who may find it useful.

Savvy

Often profound meaning arrives from the most mundane and the so called ordinary moments in life and living. For the truth is out in the open but our overworked brain often misses these simple truths for it chooses to search for meaning in the complexities. But what is wonderful to know is that all is never lost… for every step makes a difference matters to the whole some how somwhere.

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!

Wrote these verses for someone and anyone who is going through a rough patch.

Hoping for the best and sending in loads of goodwill.

SOUL CAGES

Titled: Unshackled…An Artwork By Savvy Raj

 

 

Born free we truly are, but we learn to evolve, to move beyond the soul cages of our own being!

When we learn to appreciate the freedom that is ours for the taking, we realise its value in deep gratitude!

‘Do not do this…Do not do that …’ often these are the words which are entrenched in our brains in the name of effective and good rearing.
We are told for goodness sake to avoid disappointments at all cost and to stay away from failure. Often our programming is tracked for success without a doubt. Superb indeed! A mindful way of being, which acknowledges the good and disregards the bad.
Great, then where is the issue? There should be none at all! However, the reverse is the case… and often as well!

For example… a child very lovingly brought up has to experience and grow in a world of dualities. There are all kinds of people that make up this world and varied experiences to be had in this journey of life. Preparation of exigencies is thus a necessity after all.

Acceptance and Adaptability

This is the key that we mould from within, as we evolve towards unlocking the secrets of a successful life.

    • Dealing with what must be dealt
    • Bending in the flow where it is necessary
    • Standing up for something or someone you care in support
  • Steering through the crisis that shows up without notice

All these takes nerves of steel and resilience of composure in calamity. And never forget that smile from the heart and all of your being.

As life is like that … a taste of bitter and sweet all spiced with the nicest surprises yet tinged with necessary learnings along the way.

Freedom is being who you are

Everything alive has a right to be, all that they manifest with the uniqueness of their thoughts. There is always room for expansion while accepting another as they choose to be.

Self-imposed restrictions may be a discipline necessary for one to learn, while for another it will stifle them if forced in even small measures. Caged by its own thoughts… the soul of the being needs to set itself free from limiting self-reflections to a spectrum of colours beyond!

 

    • Break free from Soul cages of convictions that hold you in chains of restrictions And evolve with your resurrection.
    • Remember the world is free, as free as you want it to be. Just take care that along the way, another’s joy you do not steal.
    • In the acceptance of the free-spiritedness of another being, there is the unshackled lightness of your own being!

Remember you are born free…

To be all that you choose to be!

On Success

You create the state of success

And you never rest on your success

Success is in the courage to continue

Your perseverance, your passion and purpose.

Success is consistently inconsiderate

Success demands much focus

as it supplies momentum

Beyond self limitations and doubts.

True success is the knowing

In your heart of contentment

Of a life well lived and loved

Success is who we are

Success is in each of us

Awaiting a discovery

An unearthing of potential

To sense life’s possibilities

If you believe ur abilities,

trust your instincts and

give it your best shot,

Success is sure to follow…

Dance of the Trees

Have you witnessed the trees dance?

Swaying in the winds with soaring spirits

Beckoning the sky to rain some more …

Even a seemingly barren tree

Is full of life and alive in every moment

Ready to spring with a freshness of spirit

Even the dry parched roots, shapes into a new life.

The branches may be dried but trust nature to grow some more

And fill the senses once more

With vibrant hues of leaves in all shades of green.

 

Being a tree is a mighty task

Sheltering and shading every passerby

Giving fruits is a labour of love

Receiving carbon and sharing oxygen

 


And standing rooted to the ground 

In all its natural abundance

For life to spring countless times

With nesting birds and the burrowing bees

 

The spirit of the tree is all heart

Sharing beyond compare

And watch as the world passes it by

In the echelons of time.

 

 

Trees stand the test of time

Of guts and glory upholding untold stories

Letting go the falling leaves in every day

Letting go the fright of loneliness and the pain of loss

 

 

 

Cos it knows the circle of life only too well…

What goes comes around

Like a breath of fresh air and a bud that is ready to spring.
