Writing : A healing practice

WordPress says I have crossed 400 days of continuous writing and publishing now.

And it is a great motivation personally to me. As sometimes a few words are hard to come by and then there are times when a river of words flow…

There is so much learning in simply putting thoughts down in a structure.

In the way, they flow

In the way they arrange themselves

From our thoughts to the words

The choices of perspectives

As they appear and form

To convey what we want to say.

As I continued to write

Early every morning

I found myself creating a space for me

A time that stands still

In the silence of thoughts

And in the dance of reflections.

This time has been a dedication

For the writer in me

In unravelling and understanding

The power of love for writing

And the potential of possibilities

In patience and perseverance.

And coming away with the realization

That to write a few words every day

Whether in a poem or prose

Is truly a beautiful healing

For our mind heart and body.

Creating anything takes energy

And in expression is a release.

In contentment and intention.

In gratitude for the inspirations.

And ever grateful for the support

Extended here by my readers

And a special mention

Goes to the WordPress family

Whose encouraging likes & responses

Paved this journey of words.

Thank you🙏

Life

Life is like a book

Every page may look the same

But holds a different reason to be

Every page has its own meaning.

Layered in words and symbols

Contexts that assume clarity

Once the book is read

Messages unbound itself through words.

Peel through the layers

Life stares at you in a heartbeat

All the same.

Yet pull back the layers

Mired in perceptions

Caked in personna

Smudged in ego

Made up with assumptions

Life assumes many forms

Shaping itself in the circumstances

Each unique and distinctive

In impressions and expressions.

Neither can it be replaced nor duplicated

Nature and nurture

Have their own role to play

In the circle of life

Judge not another as you are

For every life churns out

A different truth

Of it’s own existence.

Space Between The Steps

Just like the sounds of music in the spaces between the notes, there is dancing in the spaces between the steps. It is only when we become aware of the value of the spaces between the thoughts that we can truly reflect, revel and live with ease through our lives.
The pinnacle of access to our realization of the creative entities at work would actually be in the silence, in the intentions, in an emotional journey of profound fulfilment. The trick is to find that point of the immense creative surge and be able to nurture it.

Rest and activity go together just as much as night and day… And like the yin and the yang, there must be pauses in between the breathes, inaction in between the action, which will heighten the clarity, purity, and the intensity of that which is evolving.

It’s disheartening that our world has become so hyperactive. Multitasking has become the order of the day, people spend time having dinner in front of televisions, reading is done with music, and very often we have the mobile phone calls that cut through a real conversation. So much has there been an abuse of our bodies and mind that we truly have forgotten the importance of non-activity and quietude?
The silence between your actions or movements are the bridges to our conscious experiences and the greater your awareness the greater the creative potency of the action itself.

Dancing socially de-stresses the body mind and spirit holistically. Taking a momentto value the steps you dance together, valuing the music you are dancing to, appreciating this moment & appreciating the partner you have at this moment will only cultivate the value for oneself and will help in centring oneself deeper in the action with a joyful heart and soul.

When you dance, if you still your thoughts to simply learn to flow with the partner, the atmosphere, the music you will undoubtedly enliven yourself in the process and what you have is a beautiful dance of togetherness bridging the spaces between the steps with a conscious awareness …… And that is when dancing feels like a miracle that’s happening!

Few more thoughts in the flow….
  • Start the day with a few minutes of silence and observing the breath
  • Take time to pause and watch nature and try to be one with it . .. Maybe a sunrise, a sunset, a beach view watching the waves, the stars in the sky, the moon, the sky, or a rose or any flower or potted plant, or maybe a tree in your garden.
  • Make sure to have moments where you are free of your cellphone, tv, computer, or any electronic appliance.
  • Make a point of actually listening and understanding as others speak and allow the other to speak as much as yourself.
  • Accept every moment in the life you have now and cherish it for what it is…. Cultivating an attitude of gratitude 🙂

Nature’s Wisdom

Nature is so full of play

Creation speaks much for itself

In myriad patterns of formations

In countless whorls of leaves

An abundance of arresting artistry

Interspersed with wisdom of the creator

To discover in the learning

To understand and appreciate

Undeniable is the creators joy

In the manifestations of colours

Juxtaposed with unbelievable designs

All in such effortless grace

And what to speak of fragility

Of the tender blossoms of life

That emote so much inspirations

All endowed with the creators grace.

Spirals of enigmatic flow

Of magnanimous expressions

As much as the subtlety in self similarity

Leaving imprints of sublime divine.

Fractal patterns of nature

Infinite abundance, infinite energies

Infinite potential, infinite possibilities

Nature speaks the art of creation.

Like a river flows…

Like rivers are meant to flow
For it to meet the sea
Nourishing the earth along the way
Gushing forth with the water of life.

Let us flow through life
Exploring and experiencing
Meandering through many facets of living
Nurturing it with heartfelt love.

For life is like the river
We are meant to flow
And not stagnate and perish
In doubts and insecurities.

Like a river trusts itself in the flow

Merging into oneness eventually

Moving forth constantly in time and space.

Flow in faith like a river flows!

Make sure

If you ask for peace in and around you,
Make sure to co-create the conditions for peace.
Let go the dramas that may arise in time
Every one has a battle we know nothing of.

If you want to help make a difference
Make sure … to move from your soul
Speak from the heart
And connect in the spirit of benevolence.

Care genuinely, be truly concerned
Make sure to ask about another’s wellbeing
Not for the sake of asking
But from the place of love and empathy.

Then sit back watch your world
Transform itself in front of you
Encourage Appreciate and be Grateful
Respect, believe and keep the faith

In trust and hopefulness

For your deepest intentions do come true!

Breathe

Breathe in awareness
Breathe out of morbidity

Breathe in lightness
Breathe out of denseness

Breathe in wholeness
Breathe out of separateness

Breathe in flexibility
Breathe out of rigidity

Breathe in truth
Breathe out of the false

Breathe in peace
Breathe out of chaos

Breathe in clarity
Breathe out of distress

Breathe in wisdom
Breathe out of ignorance.
