Top Writer in Inspiration

Congratulations! You are now a top writer in Inspiration
Great Work! Pragalbha Doshi

Today I received an email from Medium that said exactly the words above! 🙂

The title of this post is a seed I am sowing. In this rich fertile land of readers and writers alike. This seed is now ready to flourish and grow beyond it’s own knowing of it’s own potential.

I am now ready to receive the BEcoming of this title. The ‘Top’ …I am not sure what it means. The ‘Writer’ I will always BE, because I have a lot to say to humanity. The ‘Inspiration’ is what I want to be in the essence of my Being. I always wanted to be …I chose to be a yoga teacher for that simple reason. To create a difference in the way we live life …from the root level, live for and with a sense of wellbeing.

For a length of time I treated myself and my writings as happy accidents, and all appreciation on my work as happier accidents. I mostly felt only gratitude and sometimes overwhelmingly so. I have also felt as if I am not sure how long this will keep going.

When I first began sharing my writings, they felt like a huge act of courage. Like opening up the inner workings of my brain to the world … wide open to be seen. And I was very pleasantly surprised to receive only kindness, acceptance and love in this space. The true regard for spoken word and the validation nourished me.

I found encouragement, motivation and inspiration in this space, sometimes to the point of cracking myself open through my own resistance.

Along with tremendous gratitude to all and those of you who contributed to me in these powerful ways …I post this title with a resolve within myself.

A resolve to Be myself and do all that it takes to begin the cycle of courage all over again.  To be willing to open up with deeper levels of my brain’s working. To lay everything out there like never before …and just like before.

You, my friends and readers have helped me soften the edge of what it feels like courage. I receive and embrace ‘Top Writer in Inspiration” with a sense of lightness now. I exactly know how it unfolds. I will simply keep writing with all my heart …all the truths of myself and my being. The seed is sown in good soil. It is nourished and will keep thriving!

My friends, I look forward to witnessing and nourishing our journeys together!

 

When peace eludes

When peace eludes
When purpose seems to lose
When perspective is at ruse
When promises don’t produce
When possibilities simply refuse

Then give up control
Then give up the crawl up the wall
Then give up the stickiness of it all
Then give up the judgment tall
Then give up the unkindness of it all

When the train is stopped on track
When the brain is blocked on black
When the mind doesn’t cut slack
When heart is feeling the break-n-crack

Then the flood of emotions moisten
Then the time is to wait and listen
Then the path as if waiting to glisten
Then the anguish will eventually lessen

When the peace eludes
When the turmoil is profuse
When all the trial is in recluse
When the denial is abstruse

Then the calling is from the Being
Then self compassion is the Seeking
Then the gift is simply in the Breathing
Then love is what helps only from Within
Then more beauty is what breaks Open

P.S. Dear Debbie, please accept this poem as my contribution to ForgivingFridays. I wish to bring forgiveness to all the judgment we bring to ourselves for not being good enough. Thank you for creating the beautiful space to bring peace and forgiveness to our beings.

Dedicated willingness

Dedicated willingness to feel & seem Bright

This habit sometimes comes at a cost

Masks the disharmony, pain & the feeling of Lost

Basks us, falsely, in the glory of seeming strong

Until we find ourselves on our way to harmony

And what seems true and Light!

Willingness now has served its purpose

Revealed to you, that you are a seeker

Dedication is not a struggle anymore!

Unfolding our Passion

Unfolding our passion
Beyond the purpose
Of being visible
To those few who know us

Once this feels sensible
And seems possible
Opens up avenues
To step out of our comfort zone
To finally start to let loose
Inhibitions and limitations
The need for approval & gratification

Allowing expression
For the pure joy of it
Breaking open
From the fear of it

Your passion now brings you home
To yourself and your Being
Exploring the truths of You
Embracing all that is true to You
Doesn’t matter now who sees you
As long as you see You!

Whilst you learn to walk
And accidentally hit the wall
Do you go back to forever crawl?
What makes you then your passion stall?

Laugh it off, start over
Cry it off, start over
Accept help, start over
Demand help, start over
Love yourself, start over
Refresh and focus, start over

Keep chipping away at it
Even if only bit by bit
Extracting the nectar drop by drop
Find a smile if again you stop

Let yourself unfold your passion
Beyond the purpose
Of being visible
To those few who know you!
