Projected Reflection

The most beautiful things happen
When the heart is fully open
Even in shocks & painful reality
We can find the deeper ocean
Everything has its own value
There’s no need to judge & measure
The free flow of pure energy
With that magical connection
Transforming the blurry vision
Through the spectacles so spiritual
The echo of the naked heartbeat
Is the melodious percussion
Every step on this journey
Is the sacred destination
Every word on this transparency
Is my very own projected reflection

This Beautiful Scene

Just look at this beautiful scene
Sunny beams in minus five degree C
Snow is the shiny jewel of the trees
The ground is decorated with calming tapestry
The impressions of feet can be very deep
But they will disappear one day eventually
What to lose & what to achieve
It’s never about the win or defeat
Just close or open your lids as you please
And breathe in & out this winter breeze in peace
Listen carefully to the intuition & the beat
The energy is real, it’s pure & serene
The heaven is here, it has always been
Look deep within coz you’re this beautiful scene

Enjoy the video / reel version…This beautiful video is taken by myself…

Spoken Word – Inner Music

Music created in GarageBand

Inner Music

What does music mean to me?
What’s the rhythm & melody?
What’s the meaning of its lyrics?
What’s the depth & its beauty?

It’s like when the blood in my veins is playing the riffs
When the heart of mine is thundering drum beats
When the eyes of mine blink the hi-hat
When the brain of my self is synthesizing & compiling the different sounds

Silence is the lyrics that I write for this unique song
Deep voice I possess to sing my own lyrics
It’s blowing the self away & melting down the lead in me
It’s pushing me beyond my own untested & untrusted limits

Lightness & Darkness are the effects I use on my sound stage & screen
Connecting with my inner audience, which was once forgotten behind my scene
I’m lost in this divine music that unites me with the energy of the unseen
This is the salient sound of my inner music

Lightning Rhymes Review by Pragalbha Doshi

I’m humbled, deeply touched & honoured by sharing this amazing, beautiful & heartfelt review with you, of Lightning Rhymes by Pragalbha Doshi, of Infinite Living of my debut book – Lightning Rhymes…I’m filled with the feeling of WOW…what a way Pragalbha has written this review…a profound gift to me…my gratitude to you, Pragalbha ✨🙏✨

A screenshot of the review
Here’s the full review:

“Navin Manik’s poetry and poetic prose give us glimpses of the kind afforded only to the one who is touched to the core of their soul and then allowed to return to surface. I am overwhelmed with appreciation for how present his words are to the moment-to-moment flow of life from inside out, through, and through.

Lightening Rhymes is a treasure to hold in my hand, as I read page after page. This is the poetry of the kind that comes unannounced and breaks one open, one by one, or perhaps seals one back, one by one, depends how we look at it. I recognize all those themes and spaces from where, as if a triumphant mourning happens through poetry as each one trickles out of our being – Navin does all of it absolutely exquisitely. His poems are an experience of a Fullness of Nothingness that moves within into a stillness – very impactful in written and spoken form. They are brilliant expressions of the stark experiences of our inner world.

It feels a great contentment for the gift of Navin’s poetry, with such unique rhythm and incredible beauty, to be out in the world.”

I’m grateful to each & every one of you…for your wonderful support…for your unconditional love towards my poetry…I can’t describe the feelings when I see & read that my book is bought, read & then reviewed…I would only humbly ask you to buy my book if you connect with my rhymes…Lightning Rhymes…It is available in both paperback & eBook editions.

Brainless

I don’t know what I’m writing while I’m riding on these high & heavy waves coz it feels as if I’m the riot dressed as the dark knight that’s dicing the dark night into the liquid black diamonds to create this crazy environment that appears quite obnoxious as it starts to simply sparkle by the quiet flow of several mercury droplets that are dripping in line on quite uneven ground & merging together to form the contrasting soundless choir

I then choose to close my red eyes to empty this glass filled with edgy violence so I can make some space & listen to the storm of frozen silence that I breathe when I sit on the pilot seat in my once bled brainless but sharp carbon steel mind to take this very long turbulent flight to the figure eight shaped infinite to reach this place somewhere in between darkness & daylight where I start to flip the tinted & blurred slides under the flickering but intense light on this unknown street to reveal this crowded scene of real life

Spoken Word – Darkness and Light

Darkness and Light
Are they states of mind?
Light in Darkness
Darkness in Light
Is it so black & white?

Diving in the Darkness
In the womb of Mother Earth
To find the safe haven
To die and rebirth
Where formless is the very Form
And timeless is the only Time
Darkness in Light
What a pure delight

Amidst Thunder and Storm
Where the dark Skies roar
The inner Volcano is about to explode
The blaze of Lightning
Penetrates deep in the Heart
To burn the Light
To show the true path

The power, the beauty, the wildness
It is the crazy dance of Light & Darkness

Everyday is Deepawali

Wear the attire of Being
Lit the lights in Heart
Decorate the temple of Love
Eat the sweets of Karma

Stop fixing Me – Just simply Be

Listen to your inner voice
Sense the gut feeling
The intuition
It is the deepest and purest voice
It is the voice of wisdom
Try not to give attention to the voice of fear
The voice of pain-body
Turn down the volume of the mind
Talking to you constantly
Telling you what to and what not to do
It will eat away the very essence of you
Let it go and breathe freely
Don’t let the anxiety control the flow of air
Open the doors of higher sense perception
Listen to the heart
WYBIWYSIWYG
What You Believe Is What You See Is What You Get
Know yourself well
Be your true friend
Self-love is the key
Don’t be afraid of falling
There’s always a curled learning
Even dark has light
Connecting with silence is not being quiet
Being vulnerable is not the weakness…
…Was the conversation between I and mySelf

See-saw

Right side
Left side
See-saw

Peace sight
Beast eyes
Piecewise

Sea site
Breathes wise
Breeze smiles

Feet slide
Flip sides
Freakwise

Red eyes
Freestyle
Feast vibes

Bright light
Dark knight
Kills mind

Fake dye
Fate dice
Flame dies

Grey skies
Clay shine
Tear cries

Windpipe
Deep voice
Screams sigh

So keen
Soak beat
Choke key

Low me
Glowing
So deep

Sow me
Plant sea
Plan be

These lines
Thin ice
Heat rhyme

High five
Hi-fi
Sounds nice?
