Perspectives

Time and again, when I listen to these podcasts, I get transported to, where my poems came from. When I struggled to the point of feeling ‘I can’t go on’ …I told myself ‘I struggle only because I deny some perspective’
Please listen to this, a very heartfelt, personal plea and inspiration to find a powerful perspective for anything you call Life!

It is as if my poem ‘Perspectives’ gets explained to the depths.

Infinite Living

Choice of perspectives
Is a gift of universal views
Though reality seems tentative
Be keen on your objective

As we choose to look at things differently
Struggle becomes our responsibility
As we refuse to think at things rigidly
Change becomes an indisputable possibility
When it seems like stuck for infinity
That’s when actually life is flowing rapidly
Let go and we get unstuck very easily

Choose what you want to change
Change what you choose to change
Insist to receive from what you perceive
Find it within you to realize your view

The perceived may be turbulent
When you be present and persistent
Look at and let go of being resistant
The received is sure to be opulent

Be relentless in pursuing life
A glorious one now that you are at it
And watch how life becomes relentless
In what it has to offer you
It is up to you…

How are you?

Sometimes we get reminded, reinforced, reinspired, reassured about being steadfast in our core beliefs of the ways of being in the world. This blog of mine was my way of conveyance of my beliefs of human connections. So bringing it up for a reread …and the following podcast says all that I might have missed saying!

Infinite Living

I significantly remember the question ‘How are you?’ after moving to the USA. This question has been on a journey and evolution of it’s own. It’s relevance, in what it means to me, has changed tremendously over the years.

One of the stark experiences of coming to US from India, was the contrast in the experience of going for a walk  here. While a way had to be carved amongst hurried humans on the streets of Mumbai, here the way was all to myself. The sight of a fellow human being  on foot felt most thrilling. Soon I realized that eye contact elicited the question ‘How are you?’ After first few times of an awkward nod-&-smile, I learned that ‘good’ is the preferred answer unlike ‘fine’ in India. Also a following ‘thank you’ made a complete answer. I quickly learned to ask that question now to whoever I crossed path with. I…

Truthfulness, kindness & the dumbness of it all!

My latest post before this is about Untruthfulness. A long time reader brought to my attention that exactly same day, an year ago, I had done a post on Truthfulness. I remember how vulnerable and courageous I felt while doing that post 🙂 I am sharing it again as I feel elated at how much growing up and ease happened to me, in one year, to be in this space.

Infinite Living

There’s some of us who have conditioned ourselves to the habit of truthfulness and kindness. I am talking about the kind of truthfulness that is hardcore and from the heart. The kind that doesn’t succumb to some of the pretentiousness of society. The kind that is very boldly but good-heartedly ready to sacrifice the niceties required to sustain a liaison for certain benefits.

It’s either my truth and your truth agree with each other or you are free to find someone else that works for you and I can move on too. It’s not how some of the world works though. A lot of times it is about having personal agendas that are secretive and communications are everything but that. The idea is to get the idea of what could be extracted of another person. Nothing wrong with it for some of us …if you are upfront about what it is that…

The call to shine …

When there is a tug of energies between wanting to stay comfortable where you are and wanting to courageously step into unchartered territories …

Infinite Living

It is amusing when we sometimes avoid someone
because they would make sense

It feels comfy to be in the Cute-but-not-so-bright
state of being, for a while more

Thank you to the twinkling stars that continue to beacon me
Yes all of you who continue to inspire me

I will be home I promise, I’ll join you
Let me play a bit more, it’s just fun to

I will find the courage to shine bright
And maybe become a beacon for few more …

Miracles of Living

These words came to me about an year ago, and I feel them to be so real, once again for me now …sharing again with infinite gratitude to the string of miracles, that life and living is!

Infinite Living

Miracles unfold oh so slowly
When you want them to hurry
When you look back on them
You go holy moley!
They were happening all along
More than you did count among

Sporadic glimpses sprinkled
Dreams repeatedly rekindled
Sometimes it is here & now
And we are busy thinking when & how

Those blank pauses
Times of boredom and lone-ness
That tend to bring worry
Are the ones going towards possibility
If you fill them with mindless doing
You might miss on being
The witness of the miracle due coming

Comes in packages big and small
Some persons near or across the miles
Uplifting conversations and smiles
Sometimes just being on a mountain tall
Or listening to the waves crash and fall

Everything that you have ever asked for
Everything you ever yearned for
Just exactly that is what you keep living
Miracle of a life yes it is you…

Soul Interactions

Infinite Gratitude for today and all that had to happen as life until today, for today to happen this way 🙂 Following is the first post on Infinite Living exactly one year ago today.

Infinite Living

Energy of the Souls is what we interact with
When we connect with other Beings
Some resonate so intense that you feel you know them well
Yet you don’t know anything about their worldly life
Their joys and their pains

They are tagless undefined divine relations
Best nurtured through time and patience
For their virtue is their expansiveness
And their infiniteness!

They will seek out the best in other
Until the egos interfere
Wanting to define and box
Fit in nicely like a cozy socks

Let go of all the strive
And let the energies thrive
What you see in other through worldly eyes is not the Whole
What you see as a whole is actually the Soul!

-PD 🙂
