Karmic connects

Someone asked me about karma and destiny today

Does karma affect destiny?
And whether we can change our destiny?

What are your thoughts I would love to hear… also as the meaning, the interconnects and interpretation of karma and destiny can be manifold. To each their own.

Our paths are preordained
But we create our karma in every moment.

I simply believe that there is always more than we know and can even begin to fathom
And yet things occur for our own evolution.

While the laws of nature
Take its course
The karmic cycles and destiny
Are juxtaposed in their own way.

The question a life may ask
In deepest turmoils
Is how are we to overcome karma
Or can destiny be changed at all.

Then intelligent life may ascertain
In search and knowing
Of the power of will and choice
To overcome the thorns of agony

It may project positivity
It may sense equanimity
It may become non judgemental
It may learn to value moments.

Yet can it change what is to be endured?
Can it prevent pain altogether?
Karma is linked into past present and future…
Through cause and effects, action and reaction.

And well, destiny is the way it was meant to be
You may transform your karmic status in every response.
And Destiny is not necessarily changed
Yet it can be transcended.

Simple ways to transform karma
To bring about a space between the steps
To respond than react.
Simple ways to transcend destiny
To choose goodwill in and around you.
To ask but less for the self and more for the good of others around you.
To practice thinking beyond ones limited self.
To remember to let go, to give more than you receive.

For only if what we are ready to give can transcend limitations, can we see abundance within and around us.
Such is the way of life and living.

Every step is yours to take

Our uniqueness…

Is the divergerence in thoughts and paths that makes us who we are.

Our personality is shaped in nature and in the nurture.

To each is their own path to survival!

Life happens in the choosing to say yes or no when required, to respond or react to the situation while accepting the challenges of life and daring to explore as well as in allowing the self to be all that it can be.

Every step is yours to take…

Make every step you take, interesting along the way!

You will find your way…

Your abilities have a way of showing up

In bringing forth your inner purpose.

Even if you haven’t ultilized them yet.

They will be visible to others at some point or other.

If ever you feel you dont have it in you

For whatever reason to pursue your gifts and talents.

Keep the faith and use your abilities

To bring out the best in others.

Reach out to help another trust in themselves.

Give hope wherever you can.

Immerse yourself in spreading goodwill

You will find yourself on the path that’s meant for you.

Gentle is the way 2

Gentleness is not a weakness.
Infact it requires much mustering of strength.
The one who has seen pain enough
Has two paths before him laid

One of revenge and hate for that which he endured
Or a path of understanding that gentleness is the way
Through winds of misfortune and misgivings
The path of the heart leads to awakenings in awareness.

Of feeling the suffering in empathy for fellow beings.
What we endure today may have been endured by someone before
So why not create a path of compassion
Knowing change begins with you.

Work & life

Work is not all of life
And life is not all work

All is in a days work ?
I wonder if the world could see
The simplest truth of life and work.

Work has its place in life
But it must not takeover life
Treat work well meet and greet
On its terms but dont get bound by it.

The canvas of life is expansive
And yet inclusive
And work is not all.
Many facets of life bring on the shine
Each facet carrying its purpose of being.

An experience of each begets the wisdom
Make time for it all.

Work is work only if work is treated like work.
Dont abuse it. dont disregard .
Treat it with dignity own up to it
Value it as an opportunity .

Give it your best shot
Take nothing for granted
For every bit matters.
Respect work as it t comes as it is tough to live without work
Life is life only if you care to live it well
What use is life if you are not even able to
Live it
All you have is one life.

Heartbeats in every now
Every moment matters for its your life
To do all that you truly can
Every day is fresh with all the possibilities
Make life work for yourself
As you gear up to step up to life
Life will open up the path for you.

Glimmers of hope

Winter chills
Soft snow
Frosted faces
Warm woollies

Hot chocolate
Cups of cheer
Christmas Spirit
Jolly season

Giving and receiving
Autumn leaves
Barren trees
Icy peaks

Blizzards ring
Howling wind
Biting cold
Frozen river
Drifting snow
Spells of darkness

Awaiting the sun
After the snow
Melting glaciers
A glimmer of sun

Summer skies

Shining sun
Smiling faces
Warm welcome
Spring is here

Lush and abundant
Bounties harvest
Artists delight
Beautiful blossoms

Colours of spring
Arresting hues
Breathtaking scenery
Flourishing nature

Spring turns Summer
Rising temperature
Mango season
Tasty treats

Sweltering heat
Icy popsicles
Slurping icecreams
Lime and lemon

Iced teas cold drinks
Quenching thirst
Parched earth
Dried lands

Blazing sun
Scorching sands
Sizzling days
Humid nights

Awaiting relief
Summer to rain
First shower
Fragrant earth

Heavenly delight
Rainy holidays
Feeling cool
Corn on cobs.

Cheap thrills
Small puddles
Splashing water
Rain coats and caps

Unfolding umbrellas
River on streets
Muddy water
Flooding roads

Chaotic confusion
Delayed trains
Traffic stops
People stranded

Rainy days turn dreary
All wet and weary
Hoping for relief
From incessant downpours

Awaiting a change
Of the Season in question
Life is circle
Of seasons in cycles

Each births and gives way
For another, on its way.
Amidst it all
Are those little glimmers of hope

Understated and unsaid
Unseen and unspoken
Little joys of being
That makes you make it…

Through yet another day.

These glimmers of hope
Though seasons may change
Hope is here to stay!

Well, this one turned out to be a really long walk through the seasons!🙂 But seriously, as I started thinking of the changing seasons, with winter knocking our welcome door, I realised how much harsh winter could get for someone far away as well. So it goes for the other seasons…

Yet every season is a magical gift, and leaves us with glimmers of hope!

We do need our seasons to come and go like they always do, one after the other for then, all is well with our world. 🙂
