Laugh yourself happy

Laugh yourself happy

Laugh a little or laugh a lot,

Laughter elicits laughter

Laughter promotes health

Laughter builds community

Laughter fortifies the heart

Laughter bridges the gaps.

Watch this awesome video…

Laughter speaks one language

Laughter tides over barriers

Laughter steers over the despair

Laughter fights off loneliness.

Laughter is a dose of health

Laughter is the best remedy!

Develop a sense of humor

It is gift within you for you.

Find it for your own happiness

Laugh yourself happy!

In this train of life we are on ….

We as humans of the so called evolved societies with education and global experiences and connects on our sides are often the ones who take the most time to smile at one another as humans traveling in the same journey of life, let alone share a laugh in the open. I wonder why?

We live within boundaries for our own safety which is good for our protection and yet it robs us of our freedom to live life.

We are always so careful in looking to put our best foot forward that we lose the joy of spontaneity.

Our life is controlled by our own doings that we throw ourselves into little boxes every day and night and we forget what it feels to think feel and sense beyond the box literally.

And sadly those who do are ridiculed for being the odd one out.

True freedom is unshackling the self from these chains of false convictions…of how to be. And just be.

Effortless grace

Effortless grace is visible in a dancer,

Who even in the dynamics of great extensions in flexibility

Can manifest great ease and subtlety.

Positive Energy

Every move you make
Alters energy in space
Creating new patterns
Attracting vibrations
Shifting perspectives.

In conscious awareness
Our positive gestures
Begin to give and receive
Balancing subtle currents



Influencing  cosmic rhythms

Activating harmony fields

Increasing  love hope and joy
Spreading  peace and contentment.

Integrating elements

Imbuing divinity  in motion.

Love : A gift of grace


What is life if not sensed with the tenderness of the heart

What is life if not sacrificed at the altar of love,

What is life if not moved from the depth of the soul.

What is life if not loved beyond the shackles of time.

What is life if not consumed sublime by the arrow of the heart

What is love if not coached into nature of life by the nurture of love …

What is life if not cleansed through tears of yearning.

What is love if not set aglow through the embers of passion

What is life if not basked in the warmth of love

What is life if not pining in the patience awaiting

As love conquers you it blesses you in the knowing.

Make not a mockery of love

Serenade love and allow it to speak truth

Love surfaces from the depth of emotions

To mend you and this world to a better place.

As true love is eternal

Free as bird in flights of oblivion

Travelling in the abandon

Of the wilderness of the spirit

Yet bonded in the boundless infinity

Endless love a gift of grace

Acknowledge this treasure

Blending two souls in one.

As a life loved is well lived… such a rare sight!

What a blessing it truly is….A love like that!

Wisdom has no age

Have been growing vegetables in my terrace garden
Every potted plant has a story to tell
A lesson to share in the growing…

Take this tomato plant for instance
So much growth but not many fruits
Perhaps they were densely planted
And hence contained in their pot

A few tomatoes have showed up
Others have yet to see the light of the day
Amongst these few, the tiniest tomato
Is very visible to the eye, having ripened the earliest.

The rest are as yet awaiting
Patiently for their evolution
Like they say
Wisdom hath no age!

Perhaps this tiny one at best
Received the rays of sunshine
Nourished in the nurture.
Matured well before it’s time.

Birthing Creativity

On chaos and order in birthing creativity!

Chaos is a precursor to order
It is the law of nature
Disorder and order are cyclical
All a matter of generation and regeneration.

Yet in all these complexities
There is a spark of simple brilliance
As in the flux of nature there is always
a stillness of consistency
Of interdependence in the interconnectedness

To accept change as a given
Creates an acceptance of a flow
Bringing forth new frontiers
In perspectives and ideas
Allowing ease of the flow.

The truth of creativity
Is that it is infinite and expansive
It is free flowing without fixation
It is boundless and unique.

Acknowledging the chaos as much as the order
As they are and meant to be….
Creates a conducive environment
For the birth of new creativity.

Walk the path…

My reflections on this beautiful picture….
Sun kissed leaves shine like gold
Majestic tall trees lined with wisdom untold
A winding woody path so green
emerges in between …
It beckons you onto a journey to the unknown
Yet with the radiant light of the sun leading you on
You know for sure you will never lose your way
Basking in the beautiful morning suns ray ….
Walk the path … befriend nature and dare
To accept the experiences, it’s ready to share
Live this moment, do not leave it for another day
awaiting when the sun shall shine this glorious way …
Cos Life is so much like this unknown path my friend
Make the journey as the sunshine around the bend
Trust yourself to be all you can be
And perhaps, its awaiting you … that which you wish to see!

Infinity of Creativity

Creativity is innate potential.
Deeply entwined in humility
In every realisation of potential infinite.
Creation manifests itself time and again.

Power of Possibilities

Explore the Immense Power of Possibilities!

Hope lives on, in possibility

Joy is always a possibility

Love happens, its a possibility

Luck as well is a possibility

Try and try again in perseverance

When effort becomes a possibility

Success too becomes a possibility

Power to the arising possibilities.

Light of the Soul

A writers soul is found dancing in the letters as he writes.
A painters soul is found between the colours in the canvas
The potters soul is in his fingers shaping the clay passionately.

The singers soul is in the sounds created by the voice.
The dancers soul is flowing through in every movement made.
The Soul is a restless wanderer
It breathes free not in captivity,
But in every movement of creation.
It cannot be fathomed or even sensed
Other than in the light of passion in the being.

For then the soul shines in its own light
For it has found its purpose of being.

Be this alive!

A great piece of choreography and cinematography from the movie Shall we Dance.

Watch the sensous swivels and the tantalising twirls of tango and be mesmerized by the lead pair of Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez.

I love the line she says to him…

‘Be this alive!’…

One moment in time…

Would you take a seat and join me

To behold the breathtaking brilliance

Of rejuvenating reflections.

Where the sky and land merge in the mystical lights

Just sit along blessed to be able to commune with nature

As it evokes its mesmerizing charms

Where each moment feels heavenly

As the winter sun blesses you with its enticing warmth.

Watching the pleasing patterns up in the sky!

What a treat to be able to sit by

And breathe in the refreshing view…

Of vast open spaces that seem so serene

Up above and all around as far as the eyes can see…

Letting go of all that’s spurious.

And just be able to sense the joy of this one moment…

Savvy

The brilliance of this moment is captured so beautifully in this picture (hats off to the unknown photographer) that it seems to be a place to sit a while and reminisce over the simple joys of being… what say?

And speaking of One moment in time…

I cant help but remember the beautiful hit song by the same name. Here are two amazing versions of the song.

One Moment in Time

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!

Savvy

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 breath,
‘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.
