Conscious Independence

As we celebrate our Independence day in India, may we care to value the underlying philosophy behind the word Independence … the ability to voice our uniqueness and express our individuality amidst a global platform.

Truly, Independence is a birthright that allows us to freely express ourselves, but along with it, is a sense of responsibility, a duty to empower the within as much as the world .

Channelizing the creative flow of freedom of expression to positive outcomes for the larger good is a responsibility for every individual. It is actually the simple way to create a life of well being with in and around each of us and for the world at large .

As we are after all an interdependent world even in our states of independence…. that to me is valuing and practicing Conscious Independence.

Happy Independence Day!!!

May we always Dance the dance of independence and freedom.

May we tune ourselves to connect with joys in tandem.

May we always remember and value great souls lost in martyrdom.

May we acknowledge that the strength in the interdependence is never random.

May we always respect our roots and learn to follow our inner wisdom.

You and your thoughts

You and your thoughts

You think that you own your thoughts
Well, your thoughts are not your own
They come through you, not from you
For you know not what your next thought may be.

For all matter is energy that flows
In tunes of nature of life
You are the channel that plays an important part.
You are like a vessel, that contains a thought.

And in that time that you hold the thought
Before it passes you by
You have a choice of steering it
In your unique way as you are meant to do

For thoughts may come
And thoughts may go
It is what you choose to do
with the thought,
That makes all the difference.

To pause and reflect.
To notice and and witness.
To observe and take charge.
To sense and to know.
To appreciate and let go.
All is with in and around you.
You and your thoughts.

Free as a bird in flight?

Flight of the birds

Depicts the freedom of being

Alive to take off any place anytime.

Are you truly free as a bird in flight?

Flapping wings courting the winds

Forging ahead, head on in space

Sensing the lightness of being

Are you ready to take yourself lightly?

Birds of a feather they say flock together

Flying as one in synch with another

Flowing into perfect patterns in close formation

Are you ready for this dance in synchrony?

Savvy

Watch the beautiful murmuring of birds in the sky. And watch it till the end as it dances so enticingly that it certainly leaves one spellbound!

On Thinking

Expansive & Inclusive thinking.

The importance and impact of thought on humanity cannot be denied. Positively steered thoughts transform lives and create transcedance

Similarly aimless thoughts lead to stagnation. And negative thinking is a road to self destruction. Repression and suppression of thoughts through force and coercion can has harmful effects on the entire personna.

Educating the mind and heart with the power of rational thinking and clarity on topics like humanity and ethical living , natural laws of being , of the larger purpose of being than the self creates a conducive platform for steering the young minds towards self introspection and contemplation in self reflection and awareness.

For instance subjects like philosophy, psychology, sociology can be introduced in high schools along with other mainstream subjects so discussions on morality and ethics of being and humanity at a much impressionable age. Students showing interest can then be given options to advanced exploration.

Every subject has its own charm and significance, In fact including these subjects will help still a restless mind and induce tolerance and patience in thinking and relating.

In doing so the next generations understanding of the relationship of the self and world and it’s interdependence in the strength of the interconnects improves amidst the introspection.

Our world needs understanding in expansiveness and inclusivity more than ever… it needs governance by leaders who value response over reaction.

Stay humble

On Humility

Stay humble and grounded
Remember your roots
For they are your strength
To know tough times move on
Leaving you solid in the rooting_
Yet flexible to flow and adapt
Knowing the wisdom of humility.

Faith is…

Faith is all there is

For without faith nothing is!

Savvy

A few more reflections…

When faith speaks it helps to listen
For faith conveys the depth of knowing
In simplest of ways.

Call it a belief in trust
Call it a feeling in the gut!
Call it a sense of intuition.
All a certain knowing in the sensing!

Our world needs us!

Positive change begins with us.
Every living being is making a difference to the environment in every moment. The question is how and in what way can it become sustainable.

Like the Great Barrier Reef, once the coral reefs are affected there the entire ecosystem stops thriving, and less fresh water will flow through the lakes…


Closer home the topography of the Great Himalayas are changing as well.
With melting ice-caps, the collapse of vegetation and wildlife, and violent surges of hurricanes droughts and frequent wildfires are all concerns for our world.

And there is really not much difference in the apathy that is happening in the name of sustaining the future… only much similarity in the situation of corruption and deceit through politics of governing people whatever the part of the world we are living in.

What we can do for our Sustainability:

Besides the regular ‘Reuse, Recycle and Reduce’ advice that comes to mind immediately I am sharing a post I chanced upon recently https://www.conserve-energy-future.com/stopglobalwarming.php

I realise I am perhaps contributing in my little way by ‘Spreading Awareness'(Tip 35 on the list ) on the need for Environmental Sustainability … but I found a lot of the tips here pretty much adaptable and relevant to us as an individual …

For the true change starts from each of us.
