Fishing…

Every day is a new day.

It is better to be lucky…

 

 

 

SRI_6747-1

 

 

but I would rather be exact.

Then when luck comes

you are ready…

 

 

 

SRI_6832-1

 

 

To hell with 

luck…

 

 

 

 

SRI_6843-1

 

 

I ‘ll bring the luck 

with me…

 

 

SRI_6777-1

 

 

My big fish must be

somewhere…

 

 

 

 

SRI_7552-2

 

 

 

As wave is driven by 

each wave…

 

 

SRI_7516-2

 

 

The world breaks everyone..

and afterward…

 

 

 

SRI_7070-1

 

 

some are strong at

the broken place…

 

 

 

SRI_7117-1

 

 

 

But man is not made

of defeat …

 

 

 

SRI_7551-2

 

 

a man can be destroyed..

but not

defeated…

 

 

SRI_7008-1

 

 

 

Men go fishing all their 

lives..

without realizing,

 

 

 

SRI_7096-1

 

its not the fish 

they are after 

(~ ` ~ Henry David )

Enduring & Real…

To look for a form or search 

for a 

sound

is to stumble down the

wrong path .

The wisdom that cannot be thought,

alone reveals that which

is enduring and

real…

 

   ~ ` ~   Zen

 

 

 

_RAM_6981-L


Breathe in…

 

 

Breathe in with the deep awareness that you are a 

human being.

Then breathe out and touch the earth,

a non-man element, as your mother.

Visualize the streams of water beneath the Earth’s

surface.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SRI_6386-L

 

 

See the minerals .See our Mother Earth, the Mother of

us all.

Then bring your arms up and breathe in again, touching the

trees, flowers, fruits, birds, squirrels, air and sky– the

non-elements.

 

 

JAN_5146-L

 

 

When your head is touching the air, the sun, the moon,

the galaxies, the cosmos–non-man elements that have

come together in order to make man possible–you see

that all of the elements are coming into you to make your

being possible.

 

 

 

SRI_6397-L

 

 

Breathing in again, stretch your arms and be aware that you also penetrate other 

elements.

 

 

 

 

JAN_5142-L

 

 

Man helps make the other elements possible.

 

( Words : Thich Nhat Hanh  )

 


Things we love…

” We lose ourselves in the 

things we love…

 

We find ourselves there

Too…”

Zen is an effort

it doesn’t make you cry, you

know you have healed…

True path…

 

 

Truth is one

&

the true path is one.

It does not belong to

anybody.

Its nobody’s

property.

 

 

 

sri_2832

 

 

it is only one!

there are not many paths really.

Many people walk on the 

path,

but the path is one.

Ecstasy…

 

There is no greater 

Ecstasy

than to know who you

are

~ ` ~ osho

 

 

 

ram_4230-l


Art…

 

Art is both love and friendship and

 understanding:

the desire to give.

 

_pop0731-bw

 

 

It is not charity, which is the giving

of things.

 

_pop0737-bw

 

It is more than kindness, which is

the giving of self.

 

 

jan_8600

 

 

It is both taking and giving of beauty, the turning

out to the light of the inner folds of the awareness

of the spirit.

 

 

 

jan_8771

 

 

 

It is the recreation on another plane of

 the realities of the world;

 

 

 

jan_8602

 

 

 

The tragic and wonderful realities of earth

and men…

 

 

 

_pop2651-bw

 

 

 

and all the interrelations

of these.

Heart Wanders…

 

 

 Clouds heap upon clouds & it
         darkens…
        I keep gazing on the far away gloom
                                of the sky, & my

heart wanders wailing with the
restless mind.

                              ~ ` ~ Rabindranath Tagore (Gitanjali)

The Moment…

 

The moment in between what you once were,

                      and who you are becoming

                          is where the

                                dance of life

                                       really begins.

                                                                                    ~ ` ~   Barbara Deangelis

 

 

 

_RAM2247


Silent…

 

 

     “….so  silent    &   so alive that his

                                        Silence     is a song ,

                                             

                                  that this song is nothing but

                                       his    Silence..…”

~~~  Osho

 

There are moments   in life when

 

  some kind of magic happens..

 

This is one of them…..
