Connections

via Daily Prompt: Imagination

A mothers pure love, gives affection,

A writers novel thought, stems from imagination,

An artiste’s colorful palette, creates wonderful creations,

A participant’s grit and courage, gives fierce competition,

An actors evergreen talent, shows us varied expressions,

A musicians gifted skill, gives us soulful renditions,

Life saving surgeries, springs from a doctors tireless operations,

A teachers knowledgeable instruction, accords us with education.

All varied forms of human professions and positions,

Woven into one fabric of human transformation,

All interlinked and driven into one direction,

That of universal brotherhood and soul connection !!

 

 

 

An Amalgamation !

via Daily Prompt: Congregate

Like the roots of the tree congregate to give life to the tree,

Like the rivers amalgamate into the sea,

Like the forests, oceans, hills, mountains, flora and fauna merge into nature,

Like individuals come together to form  families,

Like families collectively make the world,

Like the world merges into the Universe…

Let’s all congregate to celebrate that power, energy and force which binds us to the Universe.

Let’s celebrate the power of being one with that power, of belonging to the Universe !!

 

Sunrise at a beach..

via Daily Prompt: Astral

dawn-1108365__340

Golden rays of the rising sun,

Kissing the now dark horizon,

The sky glowing in a golden hue,

Dressing up in the early morning gown of blue.

Golden stars dancing in the serene waters,

As though adorning the astral couture,

Oh ! what a beautiful sight to behold,

A work of beauty from natures abode.

Golden sparkly waves beginning their new day,

Bringing positive vibes along the way,

Waves gently tossing, spreading, and reaching the shore,

Waiting to narrate the tales of their glorious journey and more !!

On the run..

via Daily Prompt: Assay

 

We are running, running, running and always on the run, till we are done, but, alas, we are never done. Running after fame, money, success, achievements, goals…and the series could go on and on…

We are always on the go, running late, running after time, running on the dot, the hourglass is always on. But we never take off some time, to rest a while, be silent, relax a while, watch ourselves, assay our internal system, unclog the internal mental blocks and try and become sublime, in what we are and where we are.

If we take stock of what we have, once in a while, I’m sure we’ll get and achieve what we are set to achieve, much faster and at a much relaxed pace and manner. So, please stop your clock for a while, assess yourself and then move on !!

 

Encrusted with negative thoughts?

via Daily Prompt: Encrusted

background-1068953__340.jpg

We are all on a beautiful journey out here on this beautiful planet. We’ve got our family, friends, well wishers and we are all walking along. On the way, we encounter certain beings or people who are on the same journey, but in an opposite direction. Or there may be certain people branching off from us, for obvious reasons, each bearing fruits of his or her journey experiencing their share of life.

Often times, during such a journey, we encounter hardships, face struggles and difficulties. We enter into squabbles, fights, disagreements and feed our mind and ego with the negative and “I am right” emotions. Our mind, our thoughts get encrusted with layers and layers of such emotions which we hold on to and refuse to let it go.

At the end of the road, we realize the futility of such feeds. It’s too late to go back and make amends. It is wise to work while we still have time. As a departed soul, we may be around our loved ones, but may be unable to communicate or show them our love. So love, while we can. Spread love and share love !!

Constant : change

via Daily Prompt: Constant

change

The only thing that remains constant in our everyday fast moving life is Change.

Everyday is a new change from the previous day and we have no say.

Changes keep happening, all the while. There is a change in the surroundings, environment, conditions of life, changes in the world and of course in the way we look, the way people around us look. Change is a constant phenomenon.

We can believe in ourselves, our value systems,  our faith and be ready to face the challenges and changes that life has to offer.

Be positive & stay positive !!

Different forms of courage

via Daily Prompt: Courage

stock-photo-courage-and-fear-risk-safety-future-strength-strong-business-concept-danger-dangerous-655442851

Courage comes in different forms and different sizes at various stages in life. Probably, courage is inbuilt in the human wiring. It’s just about when we choose to use it.

A baby taking his first steps, shows resolve,

A toddler crying his lungs out on the first day at school, is a a huge problem to solve,

Taking a giant wheel ride, swimming against the tide,

A walk back at night in a lonely street, or a presentation in an official meet,

The decision to take the plunge and tie the knot,

Or the process of giving birth, which can never be taught,

Delving into the unknown territory, is it worth a slot?

Sending your child away from home for further studies,

Or sending your kid to an excursion with his buddies..

Fear factor and associated courage comes as a package,

The challenge is to let go of the fear and opt for courage.
