Biography

Hello All. I'm here because I love writing. It allows that quiet voice inside me to be heard across a wider audience. WOL allows my ideas to connect, relate and pollinate. Although I'm a newbie poet I have accepted that no writer ever reaches her/his full potential. To me words makes heroes and villains, poets and prophets... it opens an amazing world of people with different hopes, desires and aspirations. They even have the potential to take us to a higher ground. I believe words have the power to shape worlds. Love&Light Raj

Samples

Who are you? Who am I? Separate but one. All connected. One universal tribe Intertwined Connected Sharing pain. Sharing abundance. You are never alone. You are deeply bonded with everyone What the other is giving us only opens up the possibility of going beyond the separate self. I am You. You are Me. Our place is here in the universal oneness of which we are all a part. From which we were all born, and to which we will all return. Come, let’s dance the infinite dance of life.

Raj, will you please check out my poem 'The Question', (not too far back). I so want to put 'wolf' as the final word, as in 'we so need an alpha wolf', not 'star'. Whichever word I choose, it is the ultimate 'impact of intent'. I had 'wolf'; I want 'wolf', but I'm being pinched by some kind of argument of what is 'worldly' and what is 'lordly'. Or fact versus fantasy. I'd like your input. For me, the poem 'hangs in my head', because I feel phoney about the ending.

You're a thinker. Why did I change it? This is a serious question.

What do you mean you remember my 'encounter with a sheik' many moons ago. The hair rose up the back of my neck! Did I actually make mention of him before? If so, I've got to watch my mouth!

Perhaps 'worlds' have the power to shape 'words' too, when you think about it.

I sensed Zen Hazel. I feel connected. Namaste.

Only yesterday I finished a little book on Mindfulness by Anna Black -- filled with beautiful, bite-sized practices.

I have watched Tara Brach before. I feel drawn towards her and her belief in radical acceptance is rather endearing.
When she mentions the 'awakening heart' my mind delves deep into my earlier classes on kundalini yoga where we worked on the awakening of the sleeping serpent within us (mula badha).

My journey continues Hazel and I'm in the final stages of completing my first book on managing smoking addiction through staying in the "now" and watching the cravings come and go. Wonderful.

I'm keen to know more about your mental health charity, MBSR and MBCT.

Love&Light
Raj

Hi Raj, I've been doing some kind of meditation with different degrees of commitment since I was 16. Then I lived in Nepal for a couple of years working as a volunteer and was surrounded by functioning Buddhist monasteries. I did a vipassana retreat and that started my mindfulness practice. When I came home I became involved with the Mindfulness Association at Samye Ling in Scotland and did the MBSR at Bangor University. I'm addicted to Tara Brach podcasts and videos. I am part of a local buddhist sangha but don't consider myself to be a practising buddhist. I'm lucky enough to teach secular mindfulness as part of my job with a mental health charity - so that anchors me at work and helps to wake me out of the trance. The difficult colleague in my poem was from a previous job - I still think of her with a mixture of love, amusement and sheer fear!

RAj,
I like your sample work and I am looking forward to seeing more. The subject of human interaction is close to my heart and something I have tried to cover in my own work. Let you I have only just decided to share it on here. Good luck! Andy

This sounds nice... It makes sense! Just write what is in your mind. Let your thoughts tour you into the world of poetry. Use your imagination. your emotions, visualization and write every thoughts in your mind.
