Paving the way for Oneness

I am saddened when I come across the mention of race by color. I am saddened that still people are called black or white or brown or yellow.

We are called out for the shades of our skin, when the truth is, we are so much more. We cannot be confined or defined by narrow eyes.

The fact is, people, see colors differently, and they may not see all the same colors while seeing the same things. There is research on how our individual brains react differently to different wavelengths of light.
Technically speaking the colors we see is an illusion created by our brain. We are not yet certain exactly how animals see perceive us and in which colors.

Why then this prejudice in words to describe life.
Humanity knows no color or creed.

Why are we still resorting to identify people into boxes, giving way to mental pictures, and conformity?
We are capable of liberating ourselves to see the bigger picture.

A dance article recently published an article that sends out a message of how Misty Copeland is a black dancer who succeeds.

Yes, we have an unequal world filled with all the ‘isms’ and the issues they bring along. It is unfair and discriminatory and biased in so many ways. Not just in race, but in species, gender, age, weight, height, class, creed, caste, religion, status, authority, education, power, and wealth.

Yet the inner light of the being surmountable all odds. And life shines through the heart of the movements.

The world must come together, as it is time to release these frames of false convictions and find in itself the ability and strength to support one another in the power of life that’s beating within us all.

Let us see beauty and talent in all colors and not attribute efforts and success to any color by birth.
When we remove reference of being a particular color we bring to light the truth of the soul and the spirit of freedom to be.

In that light, everything is illustrated in the illumination from within.

SOUL TO SOUL

Soul to soul
Heart to heart
Speaketh one to another

I am another you
One soul to another
I am an extension
Of your own love of Life

I seek your blessings
I seek your knowledge
I seek your wisdom
I seek your strength

Ingrained in the sands of time
You have experience of life in living
That I have none
I begin with what you give

Your thoughts your intentions
Your belief and faith
Interweave in mine
To carve this new life

An imprint of you, I am
As much as the souls before.

On Togetherness

On togetherness

The question is are we strengthened or divided in time spent in togetherness. Nations that are close in proximity hardly are together like people who may live together seemingly close knitted but hardly feel united in spirit.

The picture above intrigues me…

Entwined hands in a show of unity

Three different shades of skin

Starkly different in tones and hues

Blood beneath it all is the colour red

Alive in this now and together

They seem bonded by life

Yet this show of togetherness is a far cry

And belies the truth and reeks of racial struggles of times bygone.

Light medium and dark

These three sheaths of skin

Speak volumes of the unspoken rift

They tell tales of discrimination

Of slavery and class differentiation

Of power struggles and domination

Of the oppressed and the oppressors

Of distances in between

Of privileged and underprivileged

Is this show of strength in unity … Is it

An illusion of togetherness

A kiss and tell in feigned innocence

Or a facade put forth

In the very bliss of ignorance

One doesn’t know

Like we know not how souls choose the body to live to enjoy or endure it through a lifetime.

In the blissful togetherness!

Our world today may have woken up in bits and pieces.

In awareness of equality of the sexes

With respect for beings alike

With value for human dignity by far

Yet there is ongoing war and terror everywhere

Women are not safe anywhere

As predators lurk,

Children have to be watched over carefully

None feel safe any place anywhere

And peace is the need of this planet …in this now

If there is anything that may help bridge the gap

It is the awareness of the humanity in each other

And the strength of the interconnects in the interbeing

True togetherness is a trustful knowing in interdependence

In acceptance of one another in spite of their unique differences.

These reflections in verse format are my hearts cry that poured through the verses addressing many ills and evils of society.

Namely lack of tolerance, inequality, indignity, racial discrimination, body shaming, gender bias, atrocities on women ,child safety issues as much the forest fires and global warming and not to forget the threats of terror,war and more.

We are simply making it more difficult to live in this planet with each other by our egoplays, taking one another and our world for granted and need for domination without a consideration of the consequences of our actions.

Why can’t we coexist in peace and in strength of unity in this beautiful ball of blue?

After all it is the only one world we have.

Power of words

Our thoughts have power
And so do our words

Do you even know how blessed you are?
Your being there is enough!

Feeling so grateful for all I have!
I believe all is well…

Just with these few words above
You have forayed rightaway
Into the vibration of resonance
A shift towards positive mindsets
Into the dimensions of healing awareness
Through the sound of these spoken words.

So take stock of your potential within
You have so much going for you
Remember to believe
In the power of your own words

There is much you can do for this world
to transform for the better.
And it can start with you…
Good thoughts good words
Can be a start…
Think well, Choose well Speak well!

Art & Artist!

Art emanates from the sublime consciousness

Art speaks forth the language of hearts.

Art conveys the nature of life.

Art portrays the perspectives between.

Artist communicates with an interpretation in free will

Artist expresses reflections in a flow.

Artist connects the divinity in subtlety.

Artist breathes life into the Art.

How can you separate the art from the artist?

What a beautiful message in this story!

A young girl and her father were walking along a forest path.
At some point, they came across a large tree branch on the ground in front of them.

The girl asked her father, “If I try, do you think I could move that branch?”
Her father replied, “I am sure you can, if you use all your strength.”

The girl tried her best to lift or push the branch, but she was not strong enough and she couldn’t move it.

She said, with disappointment, “You were wrong, dad. I can’t move it.”

“Try again with all your strength,” replied her father.

Again, the girl tried hard to push the branch. She struggled but it did not move.

“Dad, I cannot do it,” said the girl.

Finally her father said, “Young lady, I advised you to use ‘all your strength’. You didn’t ask for my help.

Points to ponder…

  • Our real strength lies not in independence, but in interdependence.
  • No individual person has all the strengths, all the resources and all the stamina required for the complete blossoming of their vision.
  • To ask for help and support when we need it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of wisdom.

Dear readers,
Every one of us has the ability to create and access the strength of the interconnects within us and it can start with movements in grace of connectedness to the powers within and around us.

For it is in tune with the patterns of cosmic energy beyond physical dimensions. And as and when we learn to value the strength of the interconnects in the interdependence…every thought can be chosen to reflect a flow of hope and goodwill.

Every deed that follows then will someway reflect that very thought and that would be the strength of the interconnects amplified.

When there is harmony in our thoughts and the core intention within, peace and goodwill reigns in our hearts.

To truly understand the power of unity is to see one another through beyond their strife.

Let’s care to empower the inner spirit in every little way we can.

Uniting all in the strength of the interconnects that run common in this thread of life .
