Dream on…

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!

Lessons from Nature…

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.

Breathe

 

Breathe in calm

Sharing my artwork that resonates with  these reflections.



In this masked world

So full of fear

Awaiting the ability to breath

And move without restrictions

It is imperative  in spite of the chaos

To breathe in calm in spite of the storm

When Peace Becomes a Priority!


Breathe in stillness

Breathe in tranquility

Breathe in some inner calm.

It sets things in order 

To flow in harmony once again.

Beyond the Illusions



What is, may not be
What you see, can be an illusion
The truth may be far from it.
All that you see, is not all.

What is all, is not what you see
Illusions of your mind can play tricks.
Beyond your preconceived beliefs
And judgments of perception.

There is a lot more than what we are
Our vision can play tricks.
So watch what you see, up close
And perhaps, you will see more…

Mystic called Love!

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!

Breach and Trust🐋

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!

Life teaches you learn.

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

You learn…

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.

If you interested here are some of his other works… Short stories: The Aleph, The Library of Babel, The South, The End, The Garden of Forking Paths,

To write is to express

And emote your feelings…

To read is to explore

And experience the writers work

Every time…

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.

When Life meets Love

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!

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🙏

To Dance…

To dance is to move with the strength of earth below you, sensing and knowing the grounding beneath you of your convictions.

To dance is to freely be able to improvise your physical and emotional self with the quality of fluidity like the flowing water.

To dance is to ignite the power of passion and fire up your creative movements.

To dance is to be able to glide as if you are as light as the air and soar in grace, as you feel the wind enveloping yet beckoning you to scale new heights of harmonious effusion while dancing with a conscious awareness of your edges and spaces that you occupy in this beautiful amazing world”

Smile🙂




Smile no matter what
As you are truly meant to
Everything aligns in time
As it is meant to!


Smile and keep the cheer on
For it gives you strength
To face your fears head on
And you know you can beat the odds


Smile but make sure…
To smile from the heart
For it keeps your heart happy
Your body is at ease




Smile touching base with authenticity
Allow your eyes show its crinkles
Let your words express yourself
Sense the joy of a simple smile.

Keep  smiling  keep living
Live life lovingly
Smile whenever you can
Your smile will lighten
Up the moment for sure.



Remember smiling is  easy
It’s not too hard to put out a smile
Even in your darkest  days
When you smile you feel good

And create a positive impact.


Make sure to think well and be nice
For thoughts change with just a smile
So curve your lips upwards right now
And send out a smile to the world. 🙂

Purple Daze

 

Surreal vision, silken dreams

Silver sky, hues of blues

Serene spaces beyond places

Known and unknown

Purple daze, violet lake.

Ethereal vision entwined passions!

Enchanting sight, purple light!

The colour purple symbolizes many things like mystery creativity, romance, royalty,  luxury, pride and peace.
It is the colour artists are often fond of.
Spiritually, colour purple and violet assist in the expansion  of awareness and in connection of deeper consciousness.




How many shades of purple have you heard of...
Here are some variations of Colour purple… many of which you can find in the beautiful picture above.

Lavender,  lilac
Periwinkle, purple
Heather, mauve
Orchid, amethyst
Iris, violet
Boysenberry, mulberry
Sangria, magenta
Plum jam, raisin
Grape wine
Eggplant purple.

And if you are the kind drawn to colour purple and violets…
What is your favourite shade?

Let the smile out from within!

Why not smile when you still can

At times its a tough life indeed!

But a heartfelt smile is such a treat

Be grateful for the smiles

On writing

Grateful for this moment
With this day I complete 300 days of writing continously and publishing my works on WordPress.

Gratitude for the creativity from within and thankful for the experiences that allowed me to go into witness mode.
As a writer there is a space for thoughts to collect and flow as and when you feel like it.

This gathering of thoughts is moments of reflections in ruminations
Of life experiences
Of circumstances
Of happenings
Of situations
Of silences
All resounding reverberations in the responses to the resonances.

Writers need to be grateful…
Writers without pressure
Are at ease to allow thoughts
To seed as they germinate
And settle as they arise in time.

A far cry from spoken words
That simply must happen
When the speaking happens
For it its often relentless in the flow
Unchangeable and undoable

My gratitude extends

To writers and my readers alike

For in the flow of these words

Forged are many friendships

Linked in through these inked expressions.

For the buds of creativity blooms and thrives

In support and appreciation

So grateful to be able to write.

Savvy
