Conscious Independence

As we celebrate our Independence day in India, may we care to value the underlying philosophy behind the word Independence … the ability to voice our uniqueness and express our individuality amidst a global platform.

Truly, Independence is a birthright that allows us to freely express ourselves, but along with it, is a sense of responsibility, a duty to empower the within as much as the world .

Channelizing the creative flow of freedom of expression to positive outcomes for the larger good is a responsibility for every individual. It is actually the simple way to create a life of well being with in and around each of us and for the world at large .

As we are after all an interdependent world even in our states of independence…. that to me is valuing and practicing Conscious Independence.

Happy Independence Day!!!

May we always Dance the dance of independence and freedom.

May we tune ourselves to connect with joys in tandem.

May we always remember and value great souls lost in martyrdom.

May we acknowledge that the strength in the interdependence is never random.

May we always respect our roots and learn to follow our inner wisdom.

A new journey you are ready to start
You have danced a countless steps to the tunes of life,
You have chosen to see beyond the strife.

Dare a new morning dear one …
Move on, as the past is over and done.
Watch the sky as a sign from above
How relentlessly and hopefully it brings forth the now.

How it regales us with a myriad hues,
What a divine brush painting those magical views.
Take cues from it as it carries on …
Constantly changing in every moment.
Across the horizon rests a whole new world.
Awaiting your arrival with joy to behold.

It seeks nothing from you, neither your past glories
Nor bothers about your many untold stories.
It asks you to simply move on from any past torment
As you step into this new moment.

Sail on dear one, with a heart filled with wonder.
A new shore awaits, just across the yonder !

Savvy

‘This is one more of my photo inspired poems, the picture above denotes the let go as you move on, for to cling to the past scenarios simply delays the visibility of the the new views in the offing …

Trust all that you are and sail on! ‘Savvy

On Togetherness

On togetherness

The question is are we strengthened or divided in time spent in togetherness. Nations that are close in proximity hardly are together like people who may live together seemingly close knitted but hardly feel united in spirit.

The picture above intrigues me…

Entwined hands in a show of unity

Three different shades of skin

Starkly different in tones and hues

Blood beneath it all is the colour red

Alive in this now and together

They seem bonded by life

Yet this show of togetherness is a far cry

And belies the truth and reeks of racial struggles of times bygone.

Light medium and dark

These three sheaths of skin

Speak volumes of the unspoken rift

They tell tales of discrimination

Of slavery and class differentiation

Of power struggles and domination

Of the oppressed and the oppressors

Of distances in between

Of privileged and underprivileged

Is this show of strength in unity … Is it

An illusion of togetherness

A kiss and tell in feigned innocence

Or a facade put forth

In the very bliss of ignorance

One doesn’t know

Like we know not how souls choose the body to live to enjoy or endure it through a lifetime.

In the blissful togetherness!

Our world today may have woken up in bits and pieces.

In awareness of equality of the sexes

With respect for beings alike

With value for human dignity by far

Yet there is ongoing war and terror everywhere

Women are not safe anywhere

As predators lurk,

Children have to be watched over carefully

None feel safe any place anywhere

And peace is the need of this planet …in this now

If there is anything that may help bridge the gap

It is the awareness of the humanity in each other

And the strength of the interconnects in the interbeing

True togetherness is a trustful knowing in interdependence

In acceptance of one another in spite of their unique differences.

Savvy

These reflections in verse format are my hearts cry that poured through the verses addressing many ills and evils of society.

Namely lack of tolerance, inequality, indignity, racial discrimination, body shaming, gender bias, atrocities on women ,child safety issues as much the forest fires and global warming and not to forget the threats of terror,war and more.

We are simply making it more difficult to live in this planet with each other by our egoplays, taking one another and our world for granted and need for domination without a consideration of the consequences of our actions.

Why can’t we coexist in peace and in strength of unity in this beautiful ball of blue?

After all it is the only one world we have.

Eternal Soul

Souls transform
Itself in the voyages of time.
Discovering its identity
It’s potential purpose as an entity.

Travelling across eons
Shaped and shaping
To new forms of being
The soul lives on in spirit.
As the being, moves in its tuning.

Every soul emits the energy
Of the wisdom of times
Lived living and in between
Myriad reflections of mind
Consciousness of the heart
And in character of the being

Embodiment of the ego in its essence
Humbled by life time and time again

Until the ancient soul find its own path
Of balancing witness and action.
Sensing the truth of its own being.

Some believe the Soul carves its shape in every craving.
While fulfilling its desires unfulfilled.
Moving beyond reason and all morality.
Spirit of the soul lives on inherent transience
Of infinite awakenings in sublime consciousness.

Art & Artist!

Art emanates from the sublime consciousness

Art speaks forth the language of hearts.

Art conveys the nature of life.

Art portrays the perspectives between.

Artist communicates with an interpretation in free will

Artist expresses reflections in a flow.

Artist connects the divinity in subtlety.

Artist breathes life into the Art.

How can you separate the art from the artist?

Free as a bird in flight?

Flight of the birds

Depicts the freedom of being

Alive to take off any place anytime.

Are you truly free as a bird in flight?

Flapping wings courting the winds

Forging ahead, head on in space

Sensing the lightness of being

Are you ready to take yourself lightly?

Birds of a feather they say flock together

Flying as one in synch with another

Flowing into perfect patterns in close formation

Are you ready for this dance in synchrony?

Savvy

Watch the beautiful murmuring of birds in the sky. And watch it till the end as it dances so enticingly that it certainly leaves one spellbound!

Here and there…

Mirage of the moment

For here we exist and live
Carrying on thinking this is life

Feeling and sensing what is felt
Unaware of the mirage of this moment.

Here and there.

Everything is as much as it is not
All in this vortex of time caught
Sharing spaces
In these so called places …

We stand breathing
In the betwixt and between
The blurring line
Of the so called real and unreal.
Each steadfast in thought and opinion
Of deed and action
Hoping to leave impression
On these shifting sands of time.

Here and there and everywhere…
