Carpe diem

So many solar cycles wiser
If you have survived so far
What makes you think
Any less of yourself?

From heartbreaking moments
To unexpected challenges
You have survived it all.
Let the moment unfold

Sense the spirit of life within
Hope is here to stay!
Make the most of this moment of now
Make a choice to seize the day!
Carpe diem!

Carpe diem…. Seize the day!

State of Earth Today

Are we cause of all suffering
We are not only the cause
We are the reason
For the ‘State of Earth’ today.

We have breached all laws of nature
We have plundered and marauded
Not only our own
But innocent voiceless sentient beings.

Our crimes are heinous
Our ways unethical
Morality or humanity
Is completely missing
Across the world today.

Our actions corelates
To the price we all must pay!
We speak without kindness
We act without empathy
We are ruthless and hopeless.

Tilting natures precious balance
By our callous self serving ways.
Our earth has taken a toll
Bearing patiently in witness mode

Centuries of abuse and neglect
Nature has no time to be silent
It’s truly now or never.
Nature must begin to equalize.

Man has broken every law of nature
Now nature needs to self repair
Humankind must change their ways
Seek ways to maintain and sustain earth.

Just being human is not enough
We must practice our humanity
Else the wrath of nature
Can no longer be contained.

Our ways had got out of hand
Life was getting unbearable
And so beyond control.
And way beyond hope.

In the madness of being modern
The malady of our times
Values and ethics were trashed
Respect and regard were binned

Stress and tension
Anxiety and panicking
Sleeplessness and fatigue
Plaguing the world over

Materialism and indulgence
Hitting an all time high
In greed apathy and indifference
We took our world for granted.

Now nature is reclaiming
What’s rightfully hers
Her pristine glory
Her beauty her peace.

Now nature has put humans in cages.
Animals and birds roam free,
Roads are empty, rivers are cleaner
Pollution has given way to purer air.

While mankind is locked down.
Nature is restoring to sustain herself
Hope we realize & amend our ways
For the State of earth today.

On sharing responsibly

To write is to express life from your perspective.
To read is to understand life from another perspective.

Both interweave in the joy of expression and explorations
Of discovering the truth of life in the magic of words.
Respect to the writers & readers who can spread unspeakable joy
And leave a positive impression  through mere words.

To the writers who have mastered the art of story telling                                                 Keeping the world safely engrossed  in these troubled times
Gratitude to all those who write and share with care
Ensuring to share words and thoughts
And make the  world feel a little better than before
My deepest appreciation
For, in the darkest of spaces
Even a little light of positive words & verses
Leaves the place  a little more lit.
And every word can leave a lasting impression!

Art of Discernment

Our thoughts and our intentions create the possibilities and our will manifests it . Truly then awareness of actions its approach and the consequences start to matter. Every bit of creation has a purpose and the trick is to steer it towards the purpose of being . But the path is the journey of our life and is rife with challenges along the way.

Common sense, balance & equanimity of our thoughts & intentions, all begins to matter then. Yes, moderation is the key but be mindful of moderation as well.. You never know how things slowly get out of hand .

There is not much time that passes
When the glass in hand reaches the lip
The sip becomes a gulp
What’s one becomes two
And two becomes four
And so it goes…

Or when the thoughts in our heart gets spoken
When old habits surface & shape out of no where
Without your intentions, inspite of you
When what’s in you gets truly out of hand!

Be aware to be mindful
Be mindful to be heartful
Be mindful to be moderate
But be conscious to be mindful.

In throes of life and living
Emerges many facets of being
From meagre to excess
Both, two ends of the spectrum

To live life well
Is to understand
The necessity of discernment
Between what is need & what is want

Anything in time can become excess
Everything in time can become redundant.
Something always changes
Nothing stays the same

A life of excess
Will never find contentment
For you will tire
Sooner than you know

A life of lack
Will keep you in dearth
In angst for a silver lining
In the misery of poverty

But again what is little to one
Is much to another
What is complex to one
Is too simple to another

What is beautiful to one
Is ugly to another
What is extravagance to one
Seems a norm to another

What is a subject to one
Becomes an object to another
What is absurd to one
Becomes perfection to another

To each his own really
In this life that is given
Sometimes it’s easy
At times it is truly challenging.

So if in life you are ever flummoxed
Just remember
Nobody is perfect
But you are almost there!

Path to Paradise

Is there any doubt

Of another heaven

When life brings forth

Paradise closer home.

Do we still need

To clamour for heaven

When heaven is strewn

All around ourselves.

The path of paradise

Is strewn with wisdom

Of life and living.

Truth of nature abounds .

Savvy

Seeing the beautiful picture of the enchanting wooded pathway strewn with bounties of nature, compels me to appreciate and value the beauty of life and living more than ever before.

Wisdom Of Movements


Your deepest presence is in every action.

Witness the evolving wisdom in movements

And flow from the heart and mind as one

In coordination and balance

Like the wings of birds

Like night and day

Like the ocean waves

Like the sun after the rain.

Watch the tuning in conformity.

Sense the inclusion in the expansions

Sense the profound wisdom in every move

Movements  matter in all subtlety.

Light of the Soul

A writers soul is found dancing in the letters as he writes.
A painters soul is found between the colours in the canvas
The potters soul is in his fingers shaping the clay passionately.

The singers soul is in the sounds created by the voice.
The dancers soul is flowing through in every movement made.
The Soul is a restless wanderer
It breathes free not in captivity,
But in every movement of creation.
It cannot be fathomed or even sensed
Other than in the light of passion in the being.

For then the soul shines in its own light
For it has found its purpose of being.

Being you as you are!

Being you as you are

A few tips…
In a world that can entangle you with varied opinions and beliefs…know you are a multifaceted unique individual.

Allow yourself to take time and understand your spectrum of being .
Accepting yourself is a great start to being you.

In knowing your self you are able to discern what your choices are and gradually you are able to be comfortable with your own self. Remember everyone of us here have our own journey of life to explore and fathom.

Allow yourself to explore the truths of your own being.
Be authentic enough to avoid being who you are not . It simply cannot last too long. And it is not a path towards your purpose of being.

Being yourequires a whole lot of respect for yourself as you are. In moments of turmoil and confusion, just say to yourself ‘ I am enough for me’
There is great power of truth in these simple words .
Trust that you are enough for you.

Be all that you are!

Because you truly can!

Power of Human Spirit.

Strength to defy & dare destiny in the face

Of danger destruction and devastation …

Comes from a deeper conviction that creates

Courage to rise beyond catastrophes …

The heart has the capacity to deal

with almost anything … as that is how our life is

wired to cope and heal.

Expressing through Arts is a power within us.

In empathy with care and compassion

It is an act of kindness in realization of the oneness.

That what hurts you is actually eventually hurting me …

Your pain is my pain

In conscious awareness

I can help you heal

Your troubles away in faith

And hope for a better tomorrow for us all.

The other side

A BEAUTIFUL WAY OF LOOKING AT THINGS:

A Father was reading a magazine and his little daughter every now and then distracted him. To keep her busy, he tore one page on which was printed the map of the world. He tore it into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.

He was sure she would take the whole day to get it done. But the little one came back within minutes with perfect map……When he asked how she could do it so quickly, she said, “Oh…. Dad, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper….. I made the face perfect to get the map right.” She ran outside to play leaving the father surprised.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
There is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world. Whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, look at the other side…. You will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem.

A few musings…

The difference between just looking and seeing is so much in the depth and dimension of expansions in our flow of thoughts .An expansion in our acceptability and flexibility changes the seemingly complex situations to simple solutions .:)

Each moment is a new me.

Change, the one that never changes
Is Nature’s way of continuing the Eternal cycle of life and death.

The Infinite Cosmic Energy, being the Eternal Centre
Changes keep on happening
In every atom, molecule, particle, and cell.
Thus widening the horizon,

From Invisible subtle to Visible gross.
Creation and destruction, a part of this change,
The various cycles of Life and seasons
Changing monotony to a variety
In mind and matter.

Colours and moods transient, every moment.
Wondering in awe to the moment next.
Dwell not in the past,
Fret not the Future,
Never to lose the Magic of the Present.
Each moment a new me is born.

Be present to cherish the Present.
Be aware n awake to witness

The blossom of bud to fragrant flower.

‘Your poems become my muse’. 😊.

This is what I received from my mother this morning after she read my yesterday’s post ‘ Glimmers of hope’.

‘Thank you, mom, for writing your reflections. It truly means much to me.’

Have simply added some pictures to go along with her words.

A little more…

A want of more
Than what one has
A little more of everything
And then some more

The stakes keep rising
For fame, name and wealth
For success must be achieved
No matter the consequence.

Such is the nature of life
Of curiosity wonder and awe.
Without wisdom of moderation
Wants continue to grow.

Greed and avarice
Raises its hood
Life turns material
And ripples of chaos reigns.

When ripples turn still
There is union in the being
From desire to contentment
Fulfillment in the realisation.

When wanting evolves to knowing
In understanding, all is within
Both the wants and the knowing.
Seeking sublimes in silent awareness.

Savvy

When I shared my verses on Life and living … https://savvyraj.com/2018/10/23/life-comes-a-full-circle/

There was a message from one of the readers that made me reflect and write on the very nature of ripples in life and living. From the chaos of change to the stillness of sublimity.

On Perspectives

What seems to be, may not be

What is, maybe not.

What is an assumption, may become a contradiction.

What seems factual, may not be actual.

All is a matter of shifting perspectives.

Savvy

The above image was shared by a friend on social media… it is not a video but simply a still image.

The question is do our perspectives shape our experiences

Or do our unique experiences shape our perspectives….

Just thinking aloud.

Journey on…

Journey on until you meet yourself
For embedded along the path
Of many echelons of time
Life leaves imprints in the living

There will be many experiences
That makes your soul cry
Out in pain and pleasures
Of sensing connections
Beyond this lifetime.

Journey on nevertheless
For in meeting the many
Moments that seem enmeshed with you
You are closer to yourself

In the travelling along

Comes moments that seems
To speak straight to the heart
Of the truth of your being

All is familiar, there is deja vu

And you know the scenario only too well

For you know you have been right here.

All else is immaterial and immaculate.

You won’t need any guide
Then as you partake the joy
Of this meeting with this being
You know you have found your self.

Dance of the Trees

Have you witnessed the trees dance?

Swaying in the winds with soaring spirits

Beckoning the sky to rain some more …

Even a seemingly barren tree

Is full of life and alive in every moment

Ready to spring with a freshness of spirit

Even the dry parched roots, shapes into a new life.

The branches may be dried but trust nature to grow some more

And fill the senses once more

With vibrant hues of leaves in all shades of green.

 

Being a tree is a mighty task

Sheltering and shading every passerby

Giving fruits is a labour of love

Receiving carbon and sharing oxygen

 


And standing rooted to the ground 

In all its natural abundance

For life to spring countless times

With nesting birds and the burrowing bees

 

The spirit of the tree is all heart

Sharing beyond compare

And watch as the world passes it by

In the echelons of time.

 

 

Trees stand the test of time

Of guts and glory upholding untold stories

Letting go the falling leaves in every day

Letting go the fright of loneliness and the pain of loss

 

 

 

Cos it knows the circle of life only too well…

What goes comes around

Like a breath of fresh air and a bud that is ready to spring.
