Alone and yet not alone!

I am not alone

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
Remember
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.
Savvy

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.

Do you like to find time to be alone

With your thoughts and nothing else?

Do share

On Perspectives

What seems to be, may not be

What is, maybe not.

What is an assumption, may become a contradiction.

What seems factual, may not be actual.

All is a matter of shifting perspectives.

The above image was shared by a friend on social media… it is not a video but simply a still image.

The question is do our perspectives shape our experiences

Or do our unique experiences shape our perspectives….

Just thinking aloud.

On Success

You create the state of success

And you never rest on your success

Success is in the courage to continue

Your perseverance, your passion and purpose.

Success is consistently inconsiderate

Success demands much focus

as it supplies momentum

Beyond self limitations and doubts.

True success is the knowing

In your heart of contentment

Of a life well lived and loved

Success is who we are

Success is in each of us

Awaiting a discovery

An unearthing of potential

To sense life’s possibilities

If you believe ur abilities,

trust your instincts and

give it your best shot,

Success is sure to follow…

Gratitude: From one writer to another.

Gratifying to know…

The gratification that comes from and only through all you involved readers.

So much gratitude to you all for your support and engagement and likes.

Through encouraging comments and fabulous link shares.

So much learning in these sharings.

So grateful for the opportunity to share

Looking forward to reading your works

In mutual admiration and respect

From one writer to another.

For readers and writers are connected

In a dance of symbiosis

There is no one without the other.

SOUL TO SOUL

Soul to soul
Heart to heart
Speaketh one to another

I am another you
One soul to another
I am an extension
Of your own love of Life

I seek your blessings
I seek your knowledge
I seek your wisdom
I seek your strength

Ingrained in the sands of time
You have experience of life in living
That I have none
I begin with what you give

Your thoughts your intentions
Your belief and faith
Interweave in mine
To carve this new life

An imprint of you, I am
As much as the souls before.

Favourite Songs Day 3

3 Day Lyrical Favourites

Challenge accepted.

Day 3

My sincere thanks to Dr Sridhar for nominating me for a ‘3 day Lyric Challenge’
Please do check his wonderful blog at
Philosophy Through Photography

My choice for Day 3 of the Lyrical Challenge is

I hope you dance By Lee Ann Womack

This song is about taking chances and not being afraid to try something new.

I hope you dance
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’
Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance (Where those years have gone?)
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder?)

Little things

its-the-little-things-that-tend-to-add-up-in-a-big-way

Life is…

A little ray of light.
A little smile, a little laughter.
A little company, a little love.
A little gift of kindness.
A little gleam of sunshine.
A little sparkle to our day
.
A little glimmer of hope.
A little hand that cares to help.
A little wish that comes true.
A little touch in loving care.
A little wave of joy.
A little walk across the bend
.


A little rain on a hot summers day.
A little warmth on a cold winters day.
A little sunshine on a cloudy day.
A little shade in a hot deserted road.
A little water in moments of thirst.
A little moonbeam on a dark night.
A little twinkle of the starlit sky
.

A little dance to fill our senses.
A little song to renew the spirit.
A little fun to freshen us up
.
A little chocolate to make your day.
A little comfort in moments of despair.
A little ride on country roads.
A little prayer in the bliss of grace.
A little book to unwind at night!

Savvy

It is in these little things that life renews and restores faith in life once again. Life goes on ….

Take a little moment to live lovingly and notice the little things in this now as it is.

As someday these little things matter a great deal!
