An Expression Of Manifestation.

Image credits: Fb Group Unique Trees

Saw this photo on a Fb group share and I couldn’t help pause and wonder about this expression in manifestation.

How beautifully it has orchestrated its creation

How artfully the artistry of photography has captured this brilliance of creation.

Every where we see nature emotes in magnificent awe-inspiring ways, the wonders of creation… in the trees, be it in a little leaf , a bud, in aging bark & trunk of trees , in the cloud paintings up above in the canvas of the sky or even in the dance of the waves in the sea…ūüôŹ

Living life well includes taking care of our temple of our being.

A few habits worth inculcating for a lifetime of wellness…

Getting up early

Having breakfast…

Drinking enough water

Sleeping early

Walking regularly

Eating healthy

Avoiding junk food

Avoiding excess sugar, salt & spice.

Moderation in mobile phone usage

Thinking positive thoughts.

After all

We are all a work in progress

Lets be well.

And stay happy inside out.

Passion & Perseverance

Have you ever wondered

What is it on your path

That makes you persevere

Like no tommorow

To keep giving all of you…

Something that is on the fringes

Something tangible and yet intangible

It is that which sparks you up

Nothing feels unbearable

Its as if your mind body & soul

Is finally integrated in the sensing

Of the brilliance at work

Beyond yourself.

You will know that when you meet

The purpose of your being

At some point in your life perhaps

In the most unexpected of ways

You will find in yourself

An energy summoned from within

To reckon with to persevere on.

Such is the dance of abundance

Of creation at play

Making life resonate to its cosmic ways…

Art of Movement

Personally speaking, I have a deep interest in the art of movements, especially the ones that elucidate the flow… perhaps that is why I love dancing but on the other hand I have been equally captivated by the beauty of Tai chi and more so Qi Gong.

The healing energy of movement has often been a subject of deep passion, respect and research for me.

Likewise I am especially fond of the flowing Waltz as well. Since childhood, dancing comes naturally to me but have always found myself grappling to understand why martial art is even necessary.Until much later I started exploring the potency of energy in each of us…through a little introduction into Tai chi as well by conscious choice.

Allow me to present my reflections on this subject in a flow….

In a dance
There is an interconnect
Of emotion and movement
As to emote is to sense
The feeling in the flow…

In dance there is an awareness
Of moving in response
Without anticipation.
As in one step less,
The music moves on
And you are left to improvise
On how to match the steps in rhythm.

Yes, truly to dance is to enjoy the life in the moves.

In martial arts
There is flow too
But a flow that is ever in alertness,
In strategic moves and self defense
The speed and swiftness
In reaction and response.

Martial arts often feels like dance… t
But often the difference
Is between life and death.

Both are connected in the deepest sense and yet distinctive like chalk and cheese.

The intention to dance and to fight…is what differentiates.

We dance to let go, to enjoy this now and celebrate it.
In awareness is a flow that merges in harmony to synch in with now in artistry of the moves

The warrior is fighting for peace for survival against all odds
Not knowing what is the next move but yielding to the now to decipher the countermove and strike.
Here too there is often a display of extreme artistry of motion in accuracy of time.

To learn both, takes dedication and practice in patience.
But most of all is the need for relentless will & passion to persevere .

Yes, there is a dancer in a warrior

And a warrior in the dancer.

Choice rests within you.

Just remember, to dance is to live the moments and explore its most aesthetic potential in the flow… choose not to make dance a fight.

Stay joyful in peace.

To learn martial arts is to get into the arena and survive.
Attack or in self defense with least possible harm to get out of harms way to stay in peace.

Both may have their own relevance in purpose
To negate one is to look at only one half of the circle
Just as much as joy is part of life
Safekeeping the freedom to be
Is equally important in every now…

Do you want to dance in peace
Do you want to fight for peace.
Choice is yours to make
Peace or war!

Savvy.

Nature’s Wisdom

Wisdom is in the Wind

In the breeze so cool

Wisdom gently rests

Buzzing like the bee

And blows off again…

Singing the song of freedom

Hear it whistling through the rustling leaves…

Showing the vulnerability

Of the moment, now and then.

Wisdom of water is legendary

In its flow is the secret of letting go

Of peace and forgiveness

Of ease and acceptance.

Water is flexible and agile

To adapt itself along the way

Yet strong enough to persevere

And smoothen the stones

Into pebbles in the flow.

To be able to imbibe the profound

Wisdom of the wind & water

Is to know the wisdom of the flow

In knowing that you are not in the flow

But you are the flow!

Becons of Hope

Your choice to be who you are

Rests with you.

You choose the way you behave

Your attitude to life is your own.

Your behavior is yours to own.

Show up for yourself

Choose to be the best you can!

Choose to leave a heart print of hope

Whenever you can

Wherever you are.

The world will thank your being.

For thats what the world needs most.

Other side of Darknesss is Light

Darkness and Light are part of the same universe.
They come and go as if on contract
Light appears when the night unveils itself
Night appears when the light is overshadowed by the dark.

But in utter darkness comes the necessity of light
In burning light of the sun arises the need for cooling shade.
Both are cyclical in nature
Each a playing their part in the circle of life.

Learning from a free spirit



Today I write about my dear and very loving father…

Perhaps the most uncomplicated man.

A paragon of the free spiritedness of a child.

He has an uncanny ability to be happy like a child.

What he desires are little things like a child.

Yes, he knows how to get what he  desires

But the happiness he feels & expresses, in the most ordinary things

That is his blessing of simplicity.


Life can be an epitome of adventure and adaptability.

It can challenge you & test your resilience & reserves

But to be able to be in touch with the inner child in you.

No matter how  life takes its toll on you

Is the strength in the vulnerability.



I dedicate these musings today to my eternally ‘young at heart’ father.

For from him, I have imbibed many beautiful learnings
Will share three, especially relevant here…

  • To be able to find happiness in the ordinary things.
  • To be able to stay hopeful, light & positive, no matter the density in the moment.
  • To think well of all and make way for happy thoughts and share goodwill.

  • God Bless You Dad!

    Nature fascinates


    We explore it in unique ways
    Some of us lookup at the sky
    Admiring the infinite vastness
    Of spaces above and beyond

    Some of us look down  at the ground
    Preferring  to  dig deep into nature
    To witness the foundation  of living
    Exploring the very roots of the life


    Some choose to dream and envision
    What might be, in  hope for the morrow
    Some sit in stillness  witnessing their breath
    Knowing all the truths of life is within.

    Some prefer to dance with life
    In this now as it unfolds
    Accepting nature as it appears
    Preferring  to make best of its moments.

    Horizon Of Hope



    Every horizon once reached

    It reveals another

    Beckoning at a distance…

    Horizon is born of hope

    Of the beyond in this now.


    Horizon are meant to hope

    To aspire to reach beyond

    In the yonder across the horizon

    Where the sky converges…

    Is a matter of knowing

    There is always more

    Of natures grace.

    Such is the abundance

    Of unending hope.

    Wonder of life!

    Life is born
    Thoughts arise
    Creativity spurts
    Dreams envisioned
    Passions pursued
    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
    But wonder…
    Such is the wonder of life!

    Do more

    Reach a  little  beyond
    Extend a little  more
    Move a little  more
    Add one more step



    As you reach a bit more
    Your vision expands
    Your understanding improves
    Looking back, notice lessons learned



    Step up and walk some more
    Reach out to help someone
    Do more than you think possible
    Be generous & grateful,without regrets.


    Touch a life,leave a kind word.
    Reach out a helping hand,
    Extend a heartfelt prayer for another
    Share a smile & go make someone’s day!

    Purpose of being

    A few reflections…

    Your life is not just your own, thinking so is an illusion.
    You are meant to be all that you can be.
    You have a purpose that is larger than your self.
    You are meant to live & reach out and be expansive
    You are meant to merge and emerge in the new circles of connection.

    The choice of being true to yourself is yours to make
    The patterns you create help expand the universe.
    The connections you make in your lifetime leave a pattern in the grid for another to sense and evolve in time.
    No two patterns are alike as the patterns are unique to your being.
    Your purpose then is to live your life to the best of yourself.

    Reach out to make a connection and experience the realms and yet staying true to your centre.
    As you learn your way back home, more will find their way back home in time and space continuum.
    To be Continued.

    Verses in flow… Day 1

    I am starting an experimental journey and would like to invite you to be a part of it.

    Everyday for the next seven days I will be writing and sharing a few verses in flow that you can choose to continue as well. Would love to explore the connection in what evolves through the week and see the interweaves in the interconnects.

    Day 1 Truth

    Everything has a beginning
    Nothing can materialize
    Out of nowhere.
    The beginning holds the truths

    Acceptance is the key
    To the entire journey.
    Make peace with it, make amends
    It helps smoothen the ends.
