Sense of being!

Where is your sense of being?
Your space to make sense of life!

Are you acquainted well and in tune with your habitat?
How well do you know of who you are?
Can you fathom the potential possibilities
Of your ubiquitous and unique life?

Between the known and unknown
Of the simple to the complex
Emerge new patterns in the making
From the reigning confusion in the chaos.

Creating in the exploring
Illusory dimensions in reflections
What is logical and yet elusive
The ambiguity of certainty!
And yet …

Our sense of being, while creating new patterns of thoughts is deeply rooted in nature, and in nurture, which gives it a sense of direction in spite of the chaos and confusion.

It will find its own way!

Life thrives in nurture.

On the interconnects of nature and nurture.

I am fond of nature. I enjoy witnessing and understanding the development of life and its interconnectedness. I also happen to love reading and reflecting about life and its potential possibilities. It provokes thought on the origins of nature and nurture. Be it life in a seed or a plant or a fruit or a human and the relationship with the environment.

Seeds that are sown and reaped depend on many factors Those are what induce the nature of seeds its distinct characteristics.

Yet at times these very factors also play truant that even with the so called right conditions and everything under control, the consequences are devastating.

They may detoriate or stay stunted or stagnate and wither on their own without a clue. So what is it about seeds that never grow…Perhaps they are just not ready as yet and need more time or they are exposed to more than they can handle!
Or they are just nutrient dense which clogs, or even conditions like too much water and sun . Or they are preys to parasitic predators as we speak .

On another parallel speaking of parents and children here I am reminded of what is called helicopter parenting style the kind that almost end up hovering over their children, which just doesn’t leave any room for kids to grow on their own.

Everything needs space and balance of elements to grow and sustain well.
To germinate on its own and explore possibilities in trial and error.

The sweetest of fruits may hold the truth of their upbringing.
The bitterness in fruits could have developed along the way in the way they were handled or induced with pesticides that makes them poisonous to the consumer .
Difficult conditions leave an imprint on them that in time could alter their very nature and characteristics. But it is simply clear that the effects of good nurture in nature yields positive results.

So many questions we could pose to ourselves in our search for a better tommorow for us all!

  • How can we nurture ourselves as an individual, as a community or even as a nation and beyond as one world intentionally.
  • What are the paths to prosocial behavior and relationships.
  • What are the ways to bring about transformational changes that help in thriving beyond simply existing.
  • How can we build on hope and a sense of optimism for positive outcomes from the grassroots levels
  • How can we think beyond and take responsible actions that will help heal ourselves and our world.

Our wellbeing is our responsibility as life is a gift . Let us find collectively work at finding solutions that work in evolving our selves for the better than self destruct our beautiful world .

Just care to remember

Be it a flower, a tree an animal or a human being
Life thrives in nurture with the cultivation of right care and attitude.

Birthing Creativity

On chaos and order in birthing creativity!

Chaos is a precursor to order
It is the law of nature
Disorder and order are cyclical
All a matter of generation and regeneration.

Yet in all these complexities
There is a spark of simple brilliance
As in the flux of nature there is always
a stillness of consistency
Of interdependence in the interconnectedness

To accept change as a given
Creates an acceptance of a flow
Bringing forth new frontiers
In perspectives and ideas
Allowing ease of the flow.

The truth of creativity
Is that it is infinite and expansive
It is free flowing without fixation
It is boundless and unique.

Acknowledging the chaos as much as the order
As they are and meant to be….
Creates a conducive environment
For the birth of new creativity.

An invitation to dance…

A good dancer invites you on a journey

You choose to flow along if you wish

Never in compulsion but in emulsion

Of the spirit of the moves

In unison from the heart of the art

In emulation of the joy of the dance

That frees you into acknowledging

The rhythm within so divine.

Listening to the melody in reverance

Tuning to the beat of the distant drums

Movements in momentous vibrance

Then all is harmony in the symphony.

Savvy

We are…

On choices

“Many paths present itself.
Every path is infinite in possibilities.
The question is are we ready to walk the path?
And how we evolve, walking the path of choice?”

Stairway beckons

A picture that is open to so many interesting interpretations…

Is this a stairway to heaven
The path that sets you free
Steps that lead the way
To the light of eternal truth

Your life is given to you
A knowing is bestowed upon you
In hope that you will seek
And find the truth of your being.
All answers are within you
To sense and understand
Life is both hell and heaven if you wish.
All it needs is a stairway to the within.

In the rigours of life and living
Find those moments that move you beyond simply existing!
Search not the whole world over
In confusion and chaos over the emerging illusions.
For in all the facade of perceptions
The truth is simple and visible
If you choose to actually notice.

Seek if you must
The truth of your own life.
The purpose of your own being.
Choose to be responsible.
To acknowledge the wonder you are
Make friends with your inner self.
Treat it with care and consideration
Align your thoughts and action.
You will soon find within yourself
The stairway to the heaven in you!
