Enjoy doing what you love
And loving what you do!
You will sense freedom
As well as the contentment.
Art of Shoshin
Helps in honing the ability
To see the world with fresh eyes
Staying curious in awe and wonder
Letting go of unnecessary perceptions
That can cloud the clarity.
When you choose
An open mind
And pre conceived notions
Without pride or prejudice
No matter who you are
What you have,
Or how much you know…
You are present
You are receptive
And welcoming of perspectives
To explore infinite possibilities
Of the potential now.
Love is the way
For all of us
As each of us matters
We are all connected
In the infinite plan
And each of us
Need to become responsible
To make a meaningful difference
For life to thrive than just survive
We need to be respectful
Towards each other
To gain & sustain the trust & faith
That makes the world
A better place to live in
For all of us
Love is the way!
A dear friend shared an overflowing cup of inspiration my way and asked me to share a few thoughts.
Here are my reflections in a flow…
Patterns of perception.
Making sense of sensibility
Emoting in the experiences
Of life and living.
The cup of the heart pours…
Flowing through it reaches
The centers of cognition
And the mind begins thinking.
The cup of mind assimilates.
Gathering insights and ideas
Creating patterns of perception
Everything that is, is not all.
In all that it appears to be
There is always more
For infinite are the possibilities
In every moment of perception.
In the journey of life
We cross many on our path
Some we travel along with
Some we let go
Some we strive to keep up with
Some we want to catch up
Some we want to be with
The company we keep, we become
While the destination takes care of itself
What makes life worth living
Are the ones who we connect with in our lives.
Good company is worth holding on to
Good friends are a gift of grace.
Gratitude for the good company
Overthinking can drive one insane
It came confound than simplify reality
Less thinking is more living.
Be full of life and live life lovingly.
For those who tend to overthink
As a part of their nature
Overthinking can be a disease
That affects us in more ways than one.
For in overthinking can be distracting
With no space between thoughts..
The trick is to quiet the mind
So it allows focus and clarity.
Overcome the addiction to overthink
Often the reason to ruin the now
Often the cause of magnified fear
Overcome the habit of overthinking.
The perils of overthinking
Is that it crowds the mind
Overcome the addiction
Before it begins to haunt you.
Breathe in the good energies
Think positive thoughts, worry less
As the mind has no time to be anxious
And find some space for peace of mind.
Grains of pulsating energy
Vibrantly dancing and emoting
In the sands of time
Moving bodies reacting and responding
Patterning uniquely in every now
To the tunes of nature of life.
So very fragile in the making
So very vulnerable in the sensing
Yet so very strengthened in the living.
Fractals fields of energy transformation
Designing and redesigning itself
Creating purpose to life & living.
Every time you find yourself
In a bit of a tussle
You need to adapt to the situation
A little bit of flexibility
Goes a long way
Where you bend but do not break.
Like the reed of grass
That bows down with grace
In the wind of changes.
Like water that flows to fit in
Until it shapes unto & settles itself
Like a lithe cat that braces itself in a fall.
This ability to turn adversity
On its toes and dance with it
Is a valuable lifeskill.
This quality of adaptability
The way you adapt, adjust or modify
Says much about you as a person.
It speaks of your capacity
To be receptive to new ideas
And new ways of thinking
To step out of the box.
And perceive with fresh eyes.
To understand what is feasible
To be willing to respond than react
To the changes, in flexibility.
And the ability to be non judgmental
Speaks of your unflappable nature.
In responding with composure.
Adaptability is a necessary skill
To overcome any situation in life
To adapt is to survive.
Create no space for hatred
Have no wish for revenge
Choose to not be filled with vengeance
Channel thoughts away from anger
Have no room for haste.
Accept patience as your friend
Be mindful, be peaceful, be grateful
And all is well.
Life is born
In hope of dawn.
Yet night falls
Beween the dawns
Some dreams shatter
In the darkness unknown
While some see
The light of day!
And Life is bettered
Such is the circle of life
Flowing in a rhythm
Of its own making!
Every Life chalks it’s path in time
Arrives its meaning for itself
The journey is unparalleled
And uniquely carved.
Such is the very nature of life
And at every moment
One can’t help
Such is the wonder of life!
You have it in you
The choice of what to do
You are your own master
You are capable to choose
What you want to do
You need to own who you are
Your passion, your purpose
Your life, your breath
Then you will breathe in peace
As you begin to own your own breath.
Sometimes art simply shapes up in the nuances of expression.
Every artistic expression
Speaks of a certain experience
Of a narrative from a perspective
That can both personal or impersonal.
Yet it deeply connects the art & artist.
In those unique circumstances
That may birth the flow & the shaping.
And when the art becomes a spectacle.
The spectator interpretations
Can be equally enigmatic
As much as deeply interconnected.
All in the nuances of the artistic expression.
