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
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.
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?
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!
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.
Faith is all there is
For without faith nothing is!
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!

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.
