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…

Your baby’s dress.

A dear child’s dress speaks to a loving mother…

Weathered and worn
I lie here today
In this moment
That you look at me
I know so many thoughts
May pass your way
Memories that only can fathom
Of a time passed long by

You and I
Have lived through
Those days protecting
Your dear child
Through rough weather
Your mother’s affection
I can sense till today
As you would lovingly
Clothe your precious baby
With me

I know we are privy
To those special times
When you child lived in me
Played and fed with me on
How many times
You would carefully wash dry
And iron me out
And keep me clean and warm
All ready for your baby to wear

Your baby may never know me
But you and I
We have a special bond
A recall of those memorable times
That we shared
Until one fine day
She outgrew me.

Today you found me
As you left me
Deep in the closet
Among the old and discarded
But am I glad to be caressed with love
And photographed with joy
And reminisced about…

For in this moment
Your little gesture
Touches my being
For I feel I have served my purpose well
Thank you as well
For choosing me
And caring to keep me with you
All these years and maybe more!!!

With love
❤An old baby dress ❤

Found my daughter’s old baby dress and I was suddenly transported back in time…

Today my daughter is indeed all grown up. I took a picture of this little dress and shared it with my daughter who studies in a land far away…

The nurturing years of her childhood flashed by and I sat down to pen my reflections…

Be all that you truly are!

In the inclusive and expansive attitude towards love for the self and fellow beings we emit a vulnerability that is actually the power within us all to heal and mend and shape us for the better.

With every hurt that scars the soul perhaps we may end up in restraints of our own doing. We fear to think beyond the boundaries, like the frog in the well … trying to seclude and exclude and end up confining ourselves within the walls we sadly create.

We are so afraid to express ourselves that,with our measured movements, of what might happen, or what others may think, we live in cocoons choosing to exist in doubt and insecurities. Perhaps, we may be stepping in our own way, instead of unfurling with all our innate potential the magnitude of our being.

Our life’s journey cannot not be about fear and doubt… for they will not allow us to take a step. And life is about movement, about understanding in discovery, why should life be suppressed in any way?

Think well
Walk with intent respect the space within and around you.
Speak with clarity and with conviction.
Express the self in faith and confidence.

Choose to see life unfolding positively
Allow space for spontaneity in trust, acknowledge it as the expression of your unique self.
Sense your potential and envision the future in hope.
To be all that you truly are.

Channelizing Creativity

To create is being you!

Artwork by Savvy Raj

Someone asked me why I dance… and I said I dance to create myself.
I like to dance in my thoughts, words and deeds. By that I mean I enjoy the harmony of movements whether in thoughts or action.

Personally, I respect and value all forms of creativity and believe in the immense value of it in our daily lives.
We are all creative beings but some have to find their path themselves while perhaps for others the path is laid out for them.

We need to honour our creativity we need to find avenues to let go express and share what comes naturally to us. In that is a healing and restoring beyond compare. Have seen a single dance light up a dancers eyes or a single song or a painting stroke change the mood not only for the viewer but for the artist themselves.

Creativity is who we are and lets never forget it. The challenge though is to understand techniques of channelising creativity in a form that is valued and shared by many and that comes from practice. It is a path of immense possibilities each having the potential for soulful connects with self as much as others.

Dancers: An Artwork by Savvy Raj

What we create is meant to be and hence we learn to channelize the flow in more meaningful ways. Just the other day standing before a painting of just two vertical lines symbolised many possibilities… a bridge, to a tube, to a scale, to a road and more… infinite mind, infinite imagination, a fodder for thought in the letting go.

Yet to channelize the thoughts is a task for many demanding ardours and disciplined approach in thinking and streamlining strategically to enhance the end product be it any art form in life and living

Creativity must never be suppressed or repressed as then it manifests in disease of the body and mind. Immense is the power of creative movements to balance the body mind and spirit.

Creative expression is the passion at play and a power of profound manifestations limitless in awareness & boundless in self-belief.

Express with every cell of your being the magnitude of your being… cos that’s what you are meant to do here.

Waltzing beyond the walls!

A visual verse

Wrote this impromptu poem after seeing this clip shared by my dear friend Efi from https://efisoul63.wordpress.com/about/

yesterday on my post Creativity: A matter of approach https://wp.me/p6a0yZ-2Em

Watch these amazing and spirited performers daring to dance like so…

“>Waltzing On the Walls

Waltzing beyond the Walls
Art lives in betwixt and beyond the walls of assumption
A dance happens in the letting go and in the gumption
Take away the fear of falling down and failure.
Take away the fear of doubts and see what the spirit can endure…

Soul dances leading through the spirit and the body follows
Unshackling conventions and freeing of limitations that hollows
Defying the elements and daring to dance
Shaping new frontiers without losing form or stance

Spirit of life I bow to thee🙏
You are beyond all decree.🤲

Wisdom in the Moments

Artwork and verses by Savvy Raj

Wisdom is in the ordinary moments.

All the answers we seek, rests with us.

Life teaches as life plays on…

Allow life to live…through the changes.

Fire on Ice

My Artwork : Fire on Ice.

Icy crystal crags turn to crimson hues.
Burning bright and fiery red
Lava river gushing forth
Peaked only by the crackling sounds of Ice on Fire

While the blazing river of molten snow
Flows on until it’s time to freeze its own flame.
The final countdown is just the same
Elements behave true to their form
And all is well back to base.

And time and life moves on beyond remorse
For Nature too is in no hurry to race
It takes its own shape and course
To begin to flow again at its own pace.
