Two women



Sharing a lovely piece of poetry

Two women, two different roles
The one who gave birth to me
And the one I gave birth to.

One gave all the love she had
The other got all the love I had

One strived in the life chosen for her
The other – for the life she chose

One made sure I didn’t have tears
The other ensured I face my fears

One hears my voice to know if am well
The other can read my face and tell

One had her eyes moist as she saw me go
The other made my eyes moist as I let her go

My past and my future when shall meet
Will be a picture ever so complete
Two women, two different roles

If only I could be a little like them,
The one who gave birth to me,
And the one I gave birth to.

Two women, two different roles.



Can simply say

Love is the bridge…
Betwixt & Between

Live life lovingly!❤

On Adapting


Every time you find yourself
In a bit of a tussle
You need to adapt to the situation

A little bit of flexibility
Goes a long way
Where you bend but do not break.


Like the reed of grass
That bows down with grace
In the wind of changes.

Like water that flows to fit in
Until it shapes unto & settles itself
Like a lithe cat that braces itself in a fall.


This ability  to turn adversity
On its toes and dance with it
Is a valuable  lifeskill.

This quality of adaptability
The way you adapt, adjust or modify
Says much about you as a person.


It speaks of your capacity
To be receptive to new ideas
And new ways of thinking

To step out of the box.
And perceive with fresh eyes.
Without prejudice.

To understand what is feasible
To be willing to respond  than react
To the changes, in flexibility.



And the ability to be non judgmental
Speaks of your unflappable nature.

In responding with composure.

Adaptability is a necessary skill
To overcome any situation in life
To adapt is to survive.

A Dance Of Thoughts





Imagine space not as something that distances us
But as a liquid connection
That allows resonances
That dances on its own frequencies
Of connections that speaks  for itself
Expressing  emotions
Living life
In the infinite abundance
Of Interconnects in resonance
To this quantum coherence.

I see

A world beyond

I see

A borderless world
Overflowing abundance
In the kindness of being.
Beyond assumptions
Notions & judgments
In fear and confusion
Over man made division.
The beauty of creation
Survives the human frailties.

The world without borders
Is one of awe and intrigue
Of the alluring mystic
Of all pervading consciousness.

Of manifestations beyond compare
Of artistry beyond words
All strewn for us to sense
In the tapestry of life.

Interweaved interconnects
Unraveled in interdependence
Such is the true nature of elements
Of Creation at its best!

Being all that you can be!

The way we begin to see the world

Our world shapes itself accordingly

Lets choose to be all that we can be

Cause we can be definitely more

Than what choose to believe…

Lets never feel…

Stuck in the moment

Let care to reach beyond knowing

To consciously expand and align

Our deepest intentions in goodwill.

Lets begin to see the good we have

As well as share that good with others…

Life will begin to become lighter

And we will get wings to fly!

Lets reach our dreams

And create some more…

Remember, all of this can be done

By nobody else but us!

Be all that you can be.

A Beautiful Blessed Day!

Every morning is a proof
Of another shift in her axis
By our mother earth.

We are wiser by a day
After each and every night
To emerge anew at dawn.

Let our dawn spring forth in freshness
Of our spirit for living life well.
Let us discard the spurious.

Let us work with empathy for nature
Respectful of their presence in our lives.
For we are made of the very elements of nature.

Nature is in each of us.
Earth wind fire and water and space…
We are a force of nature.

Let us move with care
Let us proceed with dignity
And never take ourselves for granted.

Let us recognize the infinite intelligence
Bestowed in our being by nature
Let us be the best expression of our being.

As we move closer to our authenticity.
We will resonate to the truth of our life .
We will move closer to the purpose of being.

A beautiful blessed day to you all!

Reflections in resonance

The way you treat yourself in life
The way you treat another being
The way you interact
The words you speak
The deeds you do
The actions you take
All co-relate to the giant plan of
creation.

From the smile you share
To the kindness you show
From the tone of your voice
To the sounds of your steps.

All is circulating energy of pulsating vibrations.
Everything is connected to everything else.
Watch yourself, for you matter
Watch out for others they matter.
Value the life in the living.

Mirroring itself in the dimensions
Of life and living
Every move matters
For life reflects and resonates in the being.

Ladders that lead

I wrote this piece with regards to so many entrepreneurial spirits and their enterprise who catapult to fame and recognition and then often find themselves unable to sustain themselves And the heart-wrenching truth is that not all have the resilience and the capability to bounce back.

But life is a circle and change is the order of nature.

In the toughest of rounds

Keep the faith and patience

And trust time to show the way…

Ladders that lead
The climb is a chase, but the fall is steep.
So persevere on beyond just the achievement.
Be tenacious in ascent & resilient in descent.

Ladders that lead you higher in the name of career success, fame and glory lead you to so much more than just that. As you climb each step gradually, you inch closer to your dreams.

You are chalking your life in every move. And then in the pinnacle of your success…
You realize you have reached your goal.
Here is the point of discernment
As you observe, check the signs around you
Are you ready to play the game of survival?
You will receive less warmth here than ever before.
Your colleagues will change their minds
Think twice before supporting you
So fear not and keep on going
Stay mindful in the moment.

.

Ladders are meant to go up and down. If you have climbed up you must know to establish your survival modes else there is the ladder that brings you down.
But it’s doubly much harder to bear on the way down than the challenges you face on the way up.

What do you do when ladders do the disappearing act?

Sometimes the ladder vanishes
And there is no clear way to step down
Except for a blind leap of faith.
There may be darkness and fear
Sadness and silence
Shame and blame
All devastating effects
Of loss and failure
Yet the trick is to go on
Correcting your ways
Learning from the experience
And letting go of past foibles.

Mistakes make you more aware
Hurt a little and you are cautious
In pain there is understanding
Its what to watch out for!

Paths that may seem easy
May get you embroiled in complexities.
Watch yourself along the way
For.


the journey takes all of you!

You will encounter much support on the way up
But once you are are catapulted into the halls of fame.

You will find many critics and judgments
From those watching with interest
How you are managing it from here.
With all those disapproving eyes on you
One slip is a sure fire miss and costs a lot!

Watch your every step and move
For you are being followed
Here is where your resilience is tested!
Stay true to who are.
Look ahead as you trust yourself.
Paths can appear out of nowhere.

Life is as you make it!

This is a beautiful painting by my dear artistic friend Rupa from India.

Am visiting France currently, so I happened to send her a photo in the morning of a beautiful magpie on the street in Rennes. Her brushes waxed eloquent on the canvas and painted the beautiful being in my heart for eternity.

Yesterday as I was speaking to a senior faculty at a university here who also nurses a similar interest in painting and photography I was so happy to share my friend’s work with her… I believe love for art and creativity is such a beautiful way to connect with life.

Thank you, dear friend, for taking the effort… it’s such a lovely first impression.💙🤗💙

One who knows the worth of life cannot afford to waste even a single moment of life.

Every step you take towards a more meaningful life for you, makes life worth living in it.

Chiseling Along The Way…

Evolution is a matter of chiseling

Of discarding the unnecessary.

Chiselling towards perfection

Weeding out the unwanted.

Until there is clarity of purpose.

Chiselling goes on cutting through

The edges of existence

To arrive at the core of the being.

That stays true to its form

The rest fall off unbound

Leaving the essence to come alive

Breathing life into the being.

Such is the act of chiselling

To reach the purpose of the being.

Each of us helps the other

Uncover the truth of our soul.

For life shapes up

As matter takes form

Igniting the spark of energy

To mould the spirit of the being.

And spirit willing we can keep on

Sculpting… the process of evolving

For the better of the world, we belong.

Revealing the meaning of life and living.

Came across this interesting picture on social media and these were my immediate thoughts.

Do care to share your thoughts.

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.

Follow your heart



The cells of our body
Are listening
With rapt attention.

Ever ready to alter and adapt
They dance to defy
As much as to align.


Our heart hears the vibrations
Of what we truly are
As it tunes to the rhythm of the being.



Heart beats to it’s own tunes.
In the beating of the heart
Is hidden the truth of living.

Just follow along 
The path of the heart
It knows the way!

Purple Daze

 

Surreal vision, silken dreams

Silver sky, hues of blues

Serene spaces beyond places

Known and unknown

Purple daze, violet lake.

Ethereal vision entwined passions!

Enchanting sight, purple light!

The colour purple symbolizes many things like mystery creativity, romance, royalty,  luxury, pride and peace.
It is the colour artists are often fond of.
Spiritually, colour purple and violet assist in the expansion  of awareness and in connection of deeper consciousness.




How many shades of purple have you heard of...
Here are some variations of Colour purple… many of which you can find in the beautiful picture above.

Lavender,  lilac
Periwinkle, purple
Heather, mauve
Orchid, amethyst
Iris, violet
Boysenberry, mulberry
Sangria, magenta
Plum jam, raisin
Grape wine
Eggplant purple.

And if you are the kind drawn to colour purple and violets…
What is your favourite shade?

Natures fan

Looking at the fan like spread of this plant

Got me thinking of how wonderous

Are nature’s way of showing

Us how to live ….

In its arrangement of structure

There is a trustful abundance

Of spreading and expanding

Without fear and constraint

Yet deeply rooted to the core .

I just felt like cherishing this lesson.

I decided to take a photograph

In inspecting the picture closer

I was inspired to see the beautiful flow

Of so many shades and hues of colours

In those unassuming fan shaped leaves.

How much more subtly can nature say

Live life flowing in such a graceful way.

On Oneness

If our awareness begins to seek
The root of our being
We may find in its depths
Multiversity of thoughts
Rooted in faith and beliefs.

And then digging deeper
There may come a point
Of beliefs both true and false
Justifying there is a right for every left
A right for every wrong.

Every move has a counter move
Every point a counterpoint
In the balance is a counterbalance
For such is the duality in existence

And then delving deeper
As man, by far is curious of nature
Who cannot stall his curiosity to unearth,
The mystic of his own being
Begins to see the many paths that lead on.

And envisioning the duality
As an enticing dance of nature
As parts to the same whole.
Oneness emanates as the source code
Of creation in manifestation.

In conscious awakening
Oneness is a connection
Of all to the whole
For all paths lead home.
In awareness of the source code.
