Choice rests with you!

The power of choice rests with you … always .

Whatever irks you in the moment

Whatever seems too disappointing.

Whatever brings you down

Take a moment to think if its worth your energy and time…

Savvy

And here is nice little message worth a read on anger management.

I once asked a very successful Man to share his secret with me. He smiled and said to me.. “I started succeeding when I started leaving small fights for small fighters. I stopped fighting those who gossiped about me…I stopped fighting with my in laws…I stopped fighting for attention…I stopped fighting to meet public expectation of me…I stopped fighting for my rights with stupid people..I left such fights for those who have nothing else to do but fight…And I started fighting for my vision, my dreams, my ideas and my destiny. The day I gave up on small fights is the day I started becoming successful.”

Some fights are not worth your time. Choose what you fight for wisely…..

Every knock of wisdom leaves imprints in the spirit of the soul.
Are you ready?

Touching Peace in the Middle path.

Her likes were not the blatant and ĺoud
Not the one to shout out
Her kind of songs were of melody and rhythm
In synchrony with her heartbeat
Her type of books were all of an understanding
The soothing and sagacious kind
Of healing and harmony.
Her friends were far and few
Not much would escape her lips
Her speech was guarded.
None had really stepped into her inner world
In fact, her family too knew little about her
Her words were simple, not stormy
In fact, she chose the middle path in life …
A road safe and steady
Not for her the bane of fame and fortune
Not for her the choppy waters of high tides
She preferred the smooth sailing in serenity
She was a lover of grace in simple things
She never was the seeking kind ever
Neither love nor laurels, pleasures nor pain
She lived a life content, she never craved too much

She knew the price of desire only too well…

Awakening the self, the way bearer in the wisdom of living.

Want of wealth, never brings balance of needs

Hoard nothing and healing begins Living intentionally is not about living selfishly…

She was privy to the clasping clutch that ambition brought

She witnessed the sacrifice of lives barely lived

She grew in the unfolding drama that power portrayed.

She was torched by emotional upheavals, to rise in fortitude

She amassed the wisdom in the power of silence

As she knew and sensed the peace in the middle path.

This is an interpretation of my own painting I have shared above. I choose to delve a bit on the nature of the central character in the painting…

Who is she?

What makes her who she is?

What guides and motivates her?

What brings her peace and contentment?

What makes her grateful?

To every evolving question there is always a reason to be…

And to each their own path to be!

Karmic connects

Someone asked me about karma and destiny today

Does karma affect destiny?
And whether we can change our destiny?

What are your thoughts I would love to hear… also as the meaning, the interconnects and interpretation of karma and destiny can be manifold. To each their own.

Our paths are preordained
But we create our karma in every moment.

I simply believe that there is always more than we know and can even begin to fathom
And yet things occur for our own evolution.

While the laws of nature
Take its course
The karmic cycles and destiny
Are juxtaposed in their own way.

The question a life may ask
In deepest turmoils
Is how are we to overcome karma
Or can destiny be changed at all.

Then intelligent life may ascertain
In search and knowing
Of the power of will and choice
To overcome the thorns of agony

It may project positivity
It may sense equanimity
It may become non judgemental
It may learn to value moments.

Yet can it change what is to be endured?
Can it prevent pain altogether?
Karma is linked into past present and future…
Through cause and effects, action and reaction.

And well, destiny is the way it was meant to be
You may transform your karmic status in every response.
And Destiny is not necessarily changed
Yet it can be transcended.

Simple ways to transform karma
To bring about a space between the steps
To respond than react.
Simple ways to transcend destiny
To choose goodwill in and around you.
To ask but less for the self and more for the good of others around you.
To practice thinking beyond ones limited self.
To remember to let go, to give more than you receive.

For only if what we are ready to give can transcend limitations, can we see abundance within and around us.
Such is the way of life and living.

Building peace

My recent poem ‘The Middle Path of Peace‘ evoked many responses. The following verses are my musings to a comment … Especially the one by a reader on the necessity of war.

I propose here a moment in peace

Through the following verses…

Hate is never meaningful, love is

War is never meaningful, peace is.

To confuse war to be the answer for peace
Is the greatest fallacy of mankind
For the war never truly ends once begun
It sprouts the seeds of hate before it is over.

Yes there are wars fought
When equality and freedom is forfeited
As a privilege of a few
When oppression and chaos reign
When pushed beyond resilience
When backing down is not an option
For it is then a matter of self preservation and survival.

To confuse victory in war
Is the mark of inexperience
No war comes away unscathed
Casualties are a heavy price to pay
Let alone the truth of anguish and scars
Wars are never the answer.

Pain and hurt leaves the vengence behind
And revenge brews in spurts to
to strike someday

The heart of man is like a sponge
Ready to absorb that which flows
Allow the light of love to flow in
Let thoughts of peace seep in
Through every vein.

For love heals the hurt and pain
And empathy helps move beyond revenge
Make an Art of life and living
For War is just a never ending tragedy.

Wars are fought for business sadly

There are no ethics to war.

To fight is not bravery.

True bravery is in finding a way

To avert the war & build peace.

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.
