Being content…

A realization

Of all that you have

In this now.

Being happy…

An appreciation

Of what you have

In this now.

Being grateful…

An acknowledgement

Of the gifts of grace in and around us.

On Worth

Being rich is living life exploring and discovering all your possibilities of your potential

Being rich is being able to realize the potential of you.

Being rich is being ready to sense the abundance that is.

Money is not necessarily the only factor for your worth.

Your worth is being all that you are.

You are rich in knowing your worth.

Be enriched in health wealth & prosperity but most of all be rich in the heart and mind.

In realization of the contentment of what you have, you are truly rich!

Vorticity

Art work Title : Vorticity By Savvy Raj

Sharing my swirl artwork called Vorticity. This  I created with my some of favourite colors to suit the mood of the day!

Vorticity


In the core is the dynamics  of the flow ,
Sense the spiralling fluidity
Of the momentum moving along in circles
In the whirling is the dance of energy.

Soulful Words

Your positive affirmations & intentions

Towards the way you want to be

Your sincere promises and prayers

Says it all, for they are the pathways

Towards creating the life moments

Worth living for!

Becoming trust rocks of resilience

In the stormy phases of life and living.

Where life can seem unbearable.

Bridging through in hope & faith in fortitude.

Such is the strength of the soulful words

That you tell yourself.

Every narrative matters!

The Way

Trust the self… it knows the way!

Our body is intelligence personified.

Every cell of our being holds the truth of our existence.

Our every move is deeply interconnected and entwined with our emotions.

We are how we feel and sense.

We are sensitive beyond compare in the subtlety of being.

We are strong beyond compare to dare the toughest of challenges.

Life and living makes and breaks us.

But we are meant to survive…

We are born with intuitive intelligence

Designed to be our internal guide

In every moment that we live.

We have a sense of knowing

Beyond all logic and reasoning

It is speaking to us every time

It lights our heart with joy

It signals us when there is a doubt

Let’s trust it, sense it in all its subtlety

It is talking to us…let’s begin to listen in

For it shows the way.

Life is as you make it.

Every moment is potent

Awaiting awareness

Of infinite possibilities

Every now is as you choose

The way you live this now

Alters everything around

Choose to live with thankfulness

Choose to sense gratefulness

All is in the way see life

Life is as you make of it!

Dancing Lights!

I was a little kid when I first came across this beautiful word Aurora …and then I read about the Polar Lights and was truly fascinated.
Back then I read as much as I could find in books before the age of the internet.

For many of us so far away from the poles this is often impossible to imagine beyond a blue sky… let alone the dancing lights.

Resharing this poem which is a dedication to Nature’s dance in the sky… all in the depth of my awe & fascination.

Spectre of brilliance
An opera in the sky
A dance of dazzling lights
Of colours flashing through.

Luminescent beyond compare
Magical spectacle of brilliance in the flow
An undulating waltz in the yonder
An unveiling of earth’s myriad wonders.

Such an ethereal vision
Mystical northern lights
Unbelievable, unforgettable
Awesomeness beyond mere words.

What is beautiful?

Here is a beautiful forward that caught my eye.

When they asked her to reveal her beauty secrets, Audrey Hepburn wrote this beautiful text that was later read at her funeral.

′′ To have attractive lips, speak kind words.

To have a loving look, look for the good side of people.

To look skinny, share your food with the hungry.

To have beautiful hair, let a child cross it with his own fingers once a day.

To have a beautiful poise, walk knowing you’re never alone, because those who love and loved you accompany you.

People, even more than objects, need to be fixed, spoiled, awakened, wanted and saved: never give up on anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a hand, you’ll find them at the end of both your arms.

When you become old, you will discover that you have two hands, one to help yourself, the second to help others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, in her face or in her way of fixing her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the door open to her heart, the source of her love.

The beauty of a woman doesn’t lie in her makeup, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It is the tenderness that gives love, the passion that it expresses.

The beauty of a woman grows over the years ′′

The Journey



As is above
So is below
Reflection speaks
As is within.
The journey of life
Mirrors our way of being

‘In every moment of time care to be rooted to the stillness in your movements…
Care to acknowledge gratefully this strength in the rootedness.’

Envisioning Beyond Labels



In every experience there is always learning
To move beyond the apparent
Every concept is potential  in possibilities
Such is life and creativity
It is the way of nature in abundance…


To be able to see the bigger picture
To see beyond the niggling bits
And envision the larger good
Is the need of the hour. 


So much of time, earth has borne
The onslaught of man and his needs
But its time to think beyond the self
And move beyond  being bound by labels.


Find ways together and seek
Solutions than problems.
For truly we are so much more
Than the way we label ourselves…

LETS MOVE BEYOND LABELS
& KNOW THE POWER OF OUR BEING.

Tap into your truths.


Why search all around

When the answers rests within

Seek if you must,

In faithfulness

That you will receive

All that you need

At the ordained moment.






Yes  living is exacting

Making it  almost impossible

To hope and trust for an answer

To what you  are seeking.

You are filled with  wonders of life

Your very being, is a repository

Of all knowing, imprinting itself.

In every  cell in the living  you.

Everchanging in the flow

In every now.





Realize  you have everything

You need to survive

The toss and tumbles of life

As much as the torrential

Chaos of the mind and the heart

Every doubt and every confusion

Can find in you a resolution.


Just remember

All the blessings

All the answers are within

Awaiting  the moment

For you to tap into your truths!

On Attitude


Our perception
The way we see
Changes the way
We take action
Our attitude
Can make or break
Our way of being. 



Its all in us
The ability
Of changing
Our ways
Towards understanding
Towards realizing
Towards learning
There is always more…
Than what we choose to presume
The way we express
The way we carry ourselves
Our attitude says it all!

Be you, its simpler.



Value the life you have in this now

You are powerful in your uniqueness

You are your best friend

Make friends with yourself.

Trust yourself to know the way.

You will find your truth

Most importantly

There is no one else like you

Like who you are

Choose to be you

As you are

It’s simpler.

Be you.

WHO ARE YOU?

Here is a beautiful story from India…

During one of his travels, Kalidasa (the Great Poet) felt very thirsty and looked around for water. He saw a woman drawing water from a well.

He went up to her and asked her for water. She agreed to give him water, but asked him, “Who are you? Introduce yourself.”

Now Kalidasa thought that an ordinary village woman was not worthy of knowing who Kalidasa was. So he said, “I am a traveller.”

But his lady replied, “In this world there are only 2 travellers – the Sun and the Moon. Both Rise and Set every day and keep travelling perpetually.”

Then Kalidasa said, “Alright then, I am a guest.” The lady promptly replied, “In this world there are only 2 guests – Youth and Wealth … both are temporary and hence can only be called as guests.”

Intrigued Kalidasa said, “I am a Tolerant person (sahansheel vyakti).” Now the lady replied, “In this world only 2 truly know the meaning of Tolerance – Bhoomi (Earth) and Tree. How much ever you stamp the earth or throw stones at the tree (for the fruits), both continue to nurture us.”

Now Kalidasa was completely perplexed. He said, “Fine. I am a stubborn person (hatavaadi).” The lady smiled and said, “There are only 2 truly stubborn personalities – our nails and our hair. We keep cutting them non-stop, but they continue to grow.”

Kalidasa had been patient so far, but now in anger he said, “I am a fool”. Now the lady gave a wide smile and said, “There are only 2 kinds of fools in this world – a King who rules without having any capability or knowledge & a Minister who is a sycophant to such a King and lavishes praises on such a useless king.”

Kalidasa realised that he had been outsmarted. He fell at the feet of the lady and when he touched her feet and then got up, whom did he see?

Mother Saraswati – the Goddess of Learning and Wisdom. She said, “Kalidasa, you are wise. But only if you know yourself do you become a Manushya (human being). A person without any awareness of self has not reached the pinnacle of being a Human.

Note:
The Guru who recounted this story in His Teachings said, “Children should become a Manushya & know themselves. More than teaching them how to earn more money and become rich, parents should teach them to become aware of themselves and become better Human beings.

Wouldn’t you agree?

What do you think of this ancient story and its relevance to our education today?

How far have we really come with the so called knowledge?

What legacy will we really be leaving behind for our children tomorrow?

When can we bridge this growing gap between learning for knowledge and learning for understanding?

How can we transform our methods of education where we educate not just the mind but also the human heart?

For the truth is that…

Humanity needs us all to be humane more than ever before to survive!
