Unbecoming everything…

 May be

The journey isn’t so much about becoming anything.

Maybe it’s unbecoming everything

that isn’t you

….so that you can

be who you were meant 

to be

in the first place…

Courage…

  It’s a love 

              affair 

                        with 

                the unknown

                                                       ~ ` ~ Osho

Alive…

It is beautiful to be

sensitive…

And if you are more

sensitive…

You will be more 

Alive…

 

 

_RAM9739-bw

 

 

If you are more Alive,

then more life will

Enter your inner being.

You will be more

Open…

You can eat things with out

tasting; it is not difficult…

But…it is beautiful to taste….

become the taste of the food…

 

 

 

_RAM9715-bw

 

 

 

We are feeling vacant, empty and

we keep saying life is….empty

 

We are not filling it…

Be more alive, and you will be more Divine.

Be totally alive,

and there is no death for you…

Baby & I…

  

Dear Friends…

It’s exactly one year since I started my blog  

Living with a damaged skull

I started with my first post.”unconditional love” .(.https://sriramjanak.wordpress.com/2012/05/24/babys-day-out/)..about elephants babies…

And I thought It would be appropriate to  celebrate this I st anniversary  with another post about them …

 My thanks to all my blogger friends who have supported me through out…..taken time to be here with me and also  like /comment on my posts..

The past one year has been a great learning experience  for me and I also did damage my skull ( literally  ).. 🙂 .which I hope makes me better in the coming years… :-).

This post is for you my friends…

 

Take care

Hands…

  

 

Moving away from Nature …

I am presenting  something different..

 

 

      There is no special teaching:

      The most ordinary things in our daily

 

                     Life hide some deep meaning that is yet

                        Most plain and explicit; only our eyes

 

                                                 Need to see where there is a meaning…

 

_POP5377 copy

 

                   There is nothing to achieve, nor to go

 
just let life flow.

                Silence is something that comes from your heart,

                     not from the outside. Does not mean not to mention,

                            means that nothing disturbs you inside you,

                            there is no internal conversation…

                                    The practice consists of finding silence in everything you do…

Whisper a wish…

As the Indian Legend goes;

 

    Whisper a wish to a butterfly,

since a butterfly can make no sound,

 

 

the butterfly cannot reveal….

 

 

 

 

The wish to anyone but the great spirit.

 

 

 

 

In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom,

 

The great spirit always grants the wish…

 

 

 

 

   So , according to legend, by making a wish & giving

 

   The butterfly its freedom…

 

 

 

 

 

  The wish will be taken to the heavens

 

                         and 

 

 

 

 

 

Be Granted…..

is usually associated with the darker side of life….

Mystery              is the itch that you can’t Scratch ,

    journeys…”

 

 

 

 

 

  ” Mystery is the seed of 

 

              discovery…..

the senses nor obvious to the intellect .

 

It is direct subjective communication with ultimate reality…”

Sharing…

Sharing your blissfulness is the only charity.

 

Sharing your joy is the only gratitude.

 

Existence has given you too much, share it.

 

 

 

 

 

The more you share the more you will have it

 

The less you share the less you will have it.

If you don’t share it you won’t have it at all.

 

 

~~Osho

 

 


No ripples…

 

 

The pond stood still

 

No ripples

 

 

To grow lilies

 

We must leave it dirty

 

 

 

The water invites the frogs

 

Croaking singing now every night

 

 

 

 

To grow lilies in the still pond

 

We must create an entire world

 

 

Create a

 

universe…

 

 

 

is this how it all began ?

to grow lilies

( words : Divyam Surabhi )


Tusker in rain…

 

    ” only that day dawns to

 

                                    which we are awake “

 

                                                                            ~~Henry David Thoreau

 

                                 I always wanted to photograph a Tusker in rain……

                                                               early  morning ride….

                                                we were just entering the forest through the bamboo thickets…..when

                                                   we heard  the sound of bamboo cracking….& the bamboo near the road swayed….

 

                                                        It was raining…   

 

                                                                           and I was praying….

 

                                                              the camera was ready…and we saw this handsome fellow emerge …

 

 

 

 

 

In the forest …

                                            they say everything happens suddenly &

 

                                                                                  all at once…

 

 

 

 

cutting off….   

 

    all speech…

 

 

                        cutting off…

 

                                                     all thoughts…

 

 

 

 

 

   He emerged…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                    “…….the painter is in love with colours,

                                        The poet is in love with words…….”

                                                                 ~~~  Osho

 

 

                                                      and I was in love with this gentle gaint…

 

 

 

 

 


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…..

 

 


Speaking rocks…

 

 

 

The  R O C K S …..They are visible ..but invisible…

This  happens   .only when you put your whole energy   into it…

You start looking into the inside of things….then a rock is not ..just a rock

When  I saw this rock,  the first thing that stuck me was they  that they were friends…brothers ?…probably

                                                                                                                                     S O U L M A T E S …


May be it was one rock …which became three… over the years…

 

 

 

 

You can feel they are Breathing.…& that it is

                                          looking at you…

 

 

 

I touched it and I could feel it was

                                            Breathing…

 

 

 

I touched it  and could feel  its

                                                          warmth…

 

 

 

I touched it …could feel it was

                                                 responding…

 

 

 

 

There is a great deal …it does not

                                                              speak …

 

 

 

 

There is life here …ready to be

   released…

 

 

 

 

The words comes from the very heart of it…

It comes from its very

                                                 Being…

 

 

 

 

The moment you start listening to

  wordless….

 

 

 

 

You will hear what is being said  more importantly

                                                                           unsaid…

 

 

 

 

There  are no use of words….but

                                                   Gaps in between…

 

 

 

 

When you have become fully alert & there is no

                                                            Mind anymore….

 

 

 

 

‘ Hearing is possible for everybody ; listening is possible

only for those who are silent…”
