Live Life Lovingly!


Simple truth.

There was a question asked to Ramana Maharishi
Question: What is the best way to treat others?
Ramana: There are no others.

This is the simple truth of life and living well.

If only we can see how we are but reflections of one another then a lot of discrimination will stop right then and there.

Discrimination is the root of conflict.

To think one life as above or below another creates inequalities in mutual treatment and socialization.

Remember to practice non discrimination in life and living.

Reach beyond knowing.

Artwork  by  Russian  Surrealist Painter Vladimir Kush




How are you going to reach the tree of knowing?
The climb is not a cake walk
It is tough to balance  on the way up or down.
You are at the base.
And yet you are not grounded.
In the knowing that sets you free.
At times you climb almost all the way.
But think twice about entering  its core
For it is demanding.

Life never comes with a planbook
All happens in the living.
All is meant to flow along the way.
Things refine or distort
To change or transform 
Into new paths of purpose.
All, a leap of faith
To reach beyond knowing.

Life

Life is like a book

Every page may look the same

But holds a different reason to be

Every page has its own meaning.

Layered in words and symbols

Contexts that assume clarity

Once the book is read

Messages unbound itself through words.

Peel through the layers

Life stares at you in a heartbeat

All the same.

Yet pull back the layers

Mired in perceptions

Caked in personna

Smudged in ego

Made up with assumptions

Life assumes many forms

Shaping itself in the circumstances

Each unique and distinctive

In impressions and expressions.

Neither can it be replaced nor duplicated

Nature and nurture

Have their own role to play

In the circle of life

Judge not another as you are

For every life churns out

A different truth

Of it’s own existence.

On Gratefulness

Gratefulness is a gift of realization of the infinite.
It is an attitude worth cultivating
It is a a breakthrough towards transcendence
It is the ability to change the difficult to bearable.

It is a positive step in the transition
It is a sensing of faith trust and belief
It is a relief from hatred.
It is a pause to allow the hurt to heal.

It is a inner transformation.
It is a breathe in awareness
It is a creator of infinite abundance.
It is a move from the heart.

It is an awareness of potential flow
It is an acceptance of the almighty
It is a conscious awakening of the heart
It is an expression in thankfulness.

Why I write 

I write when I am charged with an idea, an inspiration. Or perhaps when there is nothing else to do.

I write to balance my emotions whenever it needs equilibrium.
I write to flow with the moment with a thought that aligns as it calls on and emerges into a pattern in prose or verse.
I write to understand better when thoughts overpower…overstimulate the mind.
I write to let go of all that comes to my mind which I feel and hope can make a positive difference somewhere to someone reading me.
I write at times in deliberation too, to process and synthesize new understandings.
I write to unshackle from the many convictions I may unknowingly hold. As I write they break loose from restrictive spaces and help to align my thoughts in the sifting.
I write to express the bounties of life that I’m blessed to enjoy in gratitude.
I write to sense the bliss of being with all of me in the moment.

I write to radiate the positive intentions in hope & gratitude.

Simply put…
I write to express myself my way.

On choices

“Many paths present itself.
Every path is infinite in possibilities.
The question is are we ready to walk the path?
And how we evolve, walking the path of choice?”

It’s just a matter of time!

Time heals it all they say
And its so very true
So when we are in throes of torment
Trust time to pass to a better moment

When life throws a googly at you
And you are left flummoxed
That you just have no certain way
Trust time to move you on along the way

In trying moments of despair
When you are left fending for yourself
Know the answer is around the bend
Trust time to let itself mend.

For time is the answer
Be patient to let it pass
For no two moments are alike
Such is the eternal mystic of time.
