As you dance
Tapping your toes
To your own heartbeats
Life senses your rhythm
And waltzes along with you,
If ever you feel the need to be uplifted
Simply bring yourself
To look around and within
To consider all the things
That gives you real joy!
There is so much more to living
Even the ordinary day
Can turn extraordinary
If you choose to see it so.
Have belief in your potential
Keep the faith alive
Have hope to turn life for the better
Keep your dreams alive
Trust the power within you.
Just a little bloom
Caught my attention
Sparkling with brightness
On the edge of a sidewalk
The bloom made me turn around
And capture its striking beauty!
Conveying a message to me
Just bloom from where you are.
The world will take notice.🌺
Have a beautiful blooming day all.
If Creativity were to be all yang
Flowing along in infinite abundance
The mystic of this mistress is magnetic
Almost hovering on the hypnotic
Creativity is a dance of balance
Of the yin and yang
Omnipresent in the flow.
In the unforgiving toughness
Is the challenge to continue
In her demands to deliver
Is the discipline of approach
In the chiding of the critiques
Is the attempt to evolve
Beyond the punishing schedules.
And in that trusting knowing
Actors act, sculptors sculpt
Writers write, painters paint
Singers sing, dancers dance
Finding purpose in the passion
In the artistry of creativity.
And as art empowers in the connectivity
Life carries on…!
Vibrant hues of Christmas Colors in all its vividity!
Joyful Christmas Memories indeed! Sharing the cheer and goodwill…
The Antwerpen Christmas Market is spread out over several streets and squares lighting up the entire historical centre of Antwerp beautifully into a huge and happening zone to stroll around in…Glowing in the night!
Beating the winters chill
Sitting by warm fire pits…
Sipping hot glühwein!And the mistletoe?
Well its no small branch
But a giant one indeed!
Fit for all the crowd that gather under
Just to share the Christmas cheer!
Where there is a pool
There are ripples
Each creating a pattern
Of its own making.
Stay patient keep calm
Trust in time.
Clarity arrives in time .
When the ripples settle
Everything is seen
Envisioned ‘As it is’.
You may not get everything you dream about, but you will never get anything you don’t dream about.”
– William James
The Power of Your Dreams
Makes the subconscious
A conscious reality.
Dare to dream
Selflessly with all of you!
To create a life
Of beautiful moments!
I think these Seven Pieces of Advice from Rumi, always applies as a gentle reminder…as a way of being.
In generosity and helping others be like the river.
In compassion and grace be like the sun.
In concealing others’ faults be like the night.
In anger and fury be like the dead.
In modesty and humility be like the soil.
In tolerance be like the ocean.
Either you appear as you are or be as you appear.
Love is fragile & vulnerable
Yet love is empowering in itself.
What is it about love that we are weakened before it?
And what is about love that we are strengthened by it?
What is this power that love wields over us?
Love hurts and heals all of us, one way or the other.
Love is the most sensed, most quoted, read,
most written and talked about.
Yet the most confusing and complex an emotion to decipher.
Inspite of its simplicity…
There is both calmness and chaos in love.
The ocean of love tides washes you over
Yet one cannot get to the root of love.
For love is a sublime embodiment
Of the essence of creation itself.
Love conquers and connects it all.
But every love story is too unique
To come to any conclusions.
Perhaps we ought to let love be mystical as it is!

Have you seen the whales breach
In such confidence they soar upward
They even maneuver a twirl
And fall back in complete trust
In the support of the water below.
How beautiful an example can mother nature give
Of unfolding grace in trust and confidence
Much of our lifes story can be just as beautiful.
When it is in a flow like that
When we rise in success with faith
Being completely confident of our purpose
When we surrender in complete unflinching trust
Knowing there is support and love flowing in the roots.
Why are humans rising and touching the stars?
Why are we progressing phenomenally
Yet why are we crash landing at times?
Why are we failing?
While it is the faith in ourselves that may take us upwards
Bu the lack of trust and support for one another brings us down.
Perhaps we need to learn from water
How to be flexible in its fluidity.
To be adaptable in its buoyancy
And then we too can rise again with every fall.
For inspite of every ability we have …
Support from our family and friends
Matter more than we know!
Wouldn’t you agree?
When you have faith in your roots then every leap of faith is of a trustful knowing
That no matter how far you reach you have a home to come back to!
Came across this profoundly touching and valuable take on life and how it teaches us lessons in living.
Sharing it here today.
A poem by
Jorge Luis Borges
I checked about this poet and learned more about him on Wikipedia….
Jorge Luis Borges Acevedo was an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator, and a key figure in Spanish-language and universal literature.
To write is to express
And emote your feelings…
To read is to explore
And experience the writers work
In the sharing is the learning.
A writer can speak much with a few words
Or wax eloquent with charming flourishes.
Whatever the way whenever it touches the heart…
There is something acknowledged.
Sometimes great learnings happen in the sharings.
The essence of life is love
Wherever you are
Wherever you go
When life is calling
And you walk the path of love
Love brings life home!
