Mirror

Appearance they say is deceptive
Mirror shows what you project
Smile and the mirror smiles back at you
Frown and your mirrorred self, frowns back.

A mirror is but a reflection
An illusion of your perception.
You are free in choice and will.
And your mirrored self, an imprisoned version
At best a limited personna of your truly
Limitless self.

Know you project into the mirror
What the world projects into you
Yet you can use your mirror every day
As your vehicle of self confidence.

Send forth a smile with all your heart
Everyday look into your mirror
With a positive attitude
That you will make the best of what you are…

As you see yourself everyday
Believe you are perfect as you choose to be
Your superficial imperfections cannot break your spirit
For your spirit is alive and kicking

With much to do and make a mark
Every moment is too precious to waste
Add some self love and spirit
While you converse with your mirror

For its high time indeed
Make that mirror work for you
Use it well to help you…
Turn your self to a confident you

Present yourself in the best possible light
Believe in who you truly are and what you can do.
There is much power that is awaiting you
So meet and greet your reflection in faith!

Many may have a love hate relationship with a mirror at different periods of our lives . It is however the extremes of behaviour that one must bring awareness into. The mirror becomes a narcissistic tool of overt admiration bordering self indulgence . Or then there are those for whom the mirror becomes a bane of their existence that it depresses them every time they catch their reflection.

Befriend the Mirror

Life is full of changes and it certainly takes a whole lot of self understanding to come to a place of comfort with your changing self in various decades of life .

There is utter confidence in the brashness of youth to the mellow musings a few decades later and then to resigned indifference bordering self negligence. Acceptance of the changing self than denial makes you befriend yourself as you are.

That is the gamechanger. For then you reflect the power of what is truly within.

This Moment

This Now’ is a just a flicker
In the vast endless space.
A fleeting moment,
That travels backwards in Time.
Never to return on its one way path.
Never blink your eyes, lest you miss
The beauty of the Moment.

Some moments well captured in this time frame.
Stays afresh like the etching on a rock.
A single moment, so potent
To change the course of your life.

A bliss or curse, depends on the Awakening Awareness of its Transcience.

Seek an understanding mind
Make no effort to stagnate,
As flowing is its innate Nature.

Senses wandering free
Unmindful of the other
Thoughts floating like clouds
Unconnected actions of body n mind
Aimless moments, effortless wastage
Unaware of the flow of Time.
Like sand seeping through the fingers
‘This Now’ dissolving in the past,
Creating a formless future, at what cost?
Potent moments become futile.

Detachment is different from disconnection.
Awareness is not aligned to alienation.
Make an effort to be consciously present
Not to miss a moment of breathe,
‘Be in the Now’ to witness the magic of Life.
Anjana

Sharing my mothers reflections here on the value of the moments. She wrote this after reflecting on my earlier poem

The Potent Now! https://savvyraj.com/2018/09/26/the-potent-now/

Just added some images to go with her thoughts.

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.

Beautiful flower

Beautiful flower
Tell me your secret
How unassuming of you
To show up with so much beauty
All for a single day in the sun?

Beautiful flower
You paint a lovely picture
Of hope and positivity
Of endearing tenderness
That speaks much without a word.

Beautiful flower
Your colour makes my day better
Having seen you blossom in full glory.
You awaken a sense of purpose
In one and all relentlessly every day.

Beautiful flower
Your sight brings joy
Your touch gentleness
Your being fragrance
You are a sight to behold!

Beautiful flower
My heartfelt gratitude to you.
For bestowing us all, your grace of being.
Today and every day!

A few pictures that I clicked this morning in my terrace garden. I don’t know the names of these beauties but I do know they made me reflect with a certain gladness, simply partaking in a vision of their tender presence.

On tranquillity

In sensing the tranquillity within
In knowing the sounds of silence
In flowing freely in the moment

Is the dance of wonder and awe
Of the beauty in the being …
In the bliss of the bless.

To dance ‘the love of my life’....

‘To dance is to converse with your soul in oneness’

Savvy

Well I have just sat down to write supercharged after dancing an improvised version of Rumba to one of my favourite songs ‘Every day I love you by Boyzone. Yes I love to dance and I willing and wholeheartedly share my love and passion for it with the world.

Well who ever told you about dancing by numbers has perhaps never learned to dance from the heart!😉 Beyond the number game … yes we may begin with counting steps though I find a lot of people like me who prefered to learn with rhythms of quicks and slows. I prefer to associate dancing with the heart beats and the breath of life itself . I also find that when taught this way the dance gets closely connected with the authenticity of you and your movements as you are.

After all dancing is being you!

The art of dance can introduce you to yourself and beckons you to know your limitless potential.

Rhythm of nature

Dance with the rhythms of nature

Be like the sun and sky all aglow

Show up like the sky without absence

Always allowing the light to brighten the day.

Feel one with waves dancing with water

Flow like the gentle rain and let go your worries

Emerge refreshed having soaked in the energy of water.

Feel the breeze of the cool winds blow.

Sense the grounding from the mountains and trees

And stay firm, ensconced like the arresting mountains do!

Witness your thoughts that drift in like tidal waves

But rest yourself rooted like the tree that you sit below.

Feel one with nature and be blessed by its wisdom

Know that endless are the learnings from Nature …

Care then to adopt the rhythms of nature.
