Or simply a clarity of illusions in the reflections.
Was watching the reflections of sunlight dancing on this patch of water on the window sill of my terrace one evening. I was mesmerized by the fleeting cloud it had captured and its amazing colours that held my fancy for a long while…
Hello my dear readers, Every day for three consecutive days I have been sharing one of my own paintings from my Artworks Collection.

Every painting has been shared without the title. I would love to understand what your meaning is for the painting. The next day I will reveal my original title and intentions for the painting.

My painting share on Day 2 is
Titled : Vortex
Random impressions in the expression.
Signifying the dance of thoughts in the space creating a vortex through the patterns formed in the dynamics of the flow.
Deeply appreciate the amazing creativity that flowed from all of you for this post.
What was quite unique was how many attributed this to flames and fire . I suppose it had much to do with the color red. It was beautiful to acknowledge that every word you used to describe the painting sets off on a serious of trajectories in contemplation showing the vividity of our unique thoughts.
I look forward to reading your words on today’s artwork.

Feel the flow of divinity in the haloed healing light abound…
Embrace the moments in silence and serenity.
Our body & mind knows what we need, if only we slow down and take the time to listen in. Moving in conscious connectedness increases mind-body awareness. As a spiritual or healing practice…there is great potential in it to play a vital role in health and well-being. which is a result of moving as one unit; body and mind.
It’s also quite possible to heal ones aches away. A headache, muscle soreness, joint pain often melts away in oblivion by bringing one’s attention and focus on that particular body part and moving mindfully with the awareness of our breath and channelling the energy of the breath.
Likewise, it’s also possible to become aware of actions which aggravate your conditions and back off and instead work on movements which make you feel better.
The same is also true for emotional pain. By bringing one’s attention to what is emotionally hurting and moving slowly through space, allowing the body to lead the way, one often finds emotional pain reduces to a considerable extent. Layers of emotional blockages and disconnects can be peeled away with this awareness about one’s movements in the moments. Centring oneself consciously involves understanding one’s place in space and being comfortable enough where one is and stable enough to be aware of one’s edges and the surroundings.
Healing happens as a consequence of certain specific actions in time. At the same breath a word of cautionary suggestion Taking an example here …, just as it’s very challenging to overcome an unwanted habit but quite easy to succumb to it again. Once you have moved in space and healed yourself off your problems do give a little thought to actions done without reflection as you wouldn’t want to be in the same tight spot which you have wrangled yourself out of with so much effort… right?
So leave a mark of poised, beautiful actions in the monument of time in thoughts words and deeds and you will be consistently feeling twice blessed for sure.
Self Esteem is deeply entwined with our inner confidence and the way we choose to behave in this world.
Unfortunately it is also influenced by many external factors which could be peers , family , relationships , and even state of health at the moment.
People who have a strong foundation of self esteem will tend to see the value of a life well lived.
If your feeling undermined by someone who brings you down at every opportunity, who sabotages your growth by clever manipulation you can rest assured they are not on your side. In fact they are the ones saddled with insecurities and self esteem issues and the sooner you distance yourself from such people , the better you are going to be.
No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow. Alice Walker
A few surefire ways to develop your sense of Self Esteem.
1 : Unlearn the negative patterns of thought.
2 : Create a habit of speaking mindfully
3: Choose to believe in your self worth.
4: Choose to forgive and let go baggage.
5: Keep learning & updating your skills.
Most importantly, celebrating the little things in your life makes you realise your self worth… so be a friend to yourself. It truly matters a great deal!
I am not alone
When I am walking at dawn
For I have the company
Of a waking sun.
I am not alone
When I am walking at dusk
For I witness the dance of heavenly lights.
For Twilights hold a special meaning
In the witnessing
Of transitions in transcendence.
Of day to night
And night to day…
In this world
You are not alone
In the dark of the night
With twinkling stars to show you the way.
You are only alone
When even in midst of the many
Your heart seeks a little
Respite from company!
A safe space to witness
Your emerging thoughts
A zone to turn into
A tranquil place to been in
To sense a balance
With your thoughtful self
Amidst the scurry hurry
Of life and living.
Often ‘ alone’ is equated with loneliness. Alone may also mean simply being a witness to, by and with your self. It may arise from a need to explore to discover the self as much as the world in mindful introspection and contemplation. Every now and then a little time spent quietly with your self can truly help expand and regain the much needed equanimity to handle the worldly issues.
Meditations are a positive wonderful way to recharge our system.
