Mystery…

 

 

 ” Every art has its   mystery 

                               its Spiritual rhythm”

                                                       ~~ D.T Suzuki

 

                                                           

   “Mystery 

 

is usually associated with the darker side of life….

 

  In religion & art , mystery is light itself …its the life blood that pumps through true religion & artistic practice…….”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mystery              is the itch that you can’t Scratch , 

 

     the driving force of spiritual & creative 

 

    journeys…”

 

 

 

 

 

  ” Mystery is the seed of 

 

              discovery…..

 

 

 

 

 

Mystery…

 

 

   ” having a spiritual meaning that is neither apparent to

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 )


Above the clouds…

 

 

I heard it

 

in my sleep

 

calling me softly

 

 

 

it was

 

my mother

 

speaking from her grave

 

 

 

my son !

 

there is no heaven

 

above the clouds.

 

 

 

 

WHAT !

 

yes, heaven is in your heart.

 

( words : Don Mettera )

 

 

 

Spreading itself

 

over mountain tops…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

Promting us to travel beyond limits….

 

 


The other person Is Y O U …

 

 
Recognise that the

 

other person is Y O U

Not the flower but the Fragrance…

 

You ask me ,

 

” can you tell us what is the purpose of creation ? ”

 

 

 

 

The world has never been created.

 

It has always been here ,

 

it is eternal.

 

 

 

There is no creator of the world :

 

God is not the creator of the world …

 

 

 

 

god is the

very creative energy of existence —

 

creativity rather than a creator.

 

 

 

He is not the poet but

 

 

the poetry…

 

 

 

Not the dancer

 

but the dance….

 

 

 

 

not the flower but

 

the fragrance…

 

 

 

 

~~~~~The Dhammapada

( the way of Buddha )


Reassurance…

 

 

              ” The little ear,

 

                            like the map of India,

 

                             were cocked forward listening to the only sounds

 

                               that mattered….

 

                               The call of  the mother…”

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…

 

 

 

 

 


Standing still…

 

 

 

”   …every creature on the face of the earth seems to know how to be quiet and        

                                                           still…..

 

                              but we seem to have lost the ability just to be quiet, to simply be

 

                                   present in the stillness that is the basis of our existence……”

   Stillness is very natural

 

                                                                    and uncomplicated..

 

.

 

 

                                                   it is incredibly

 

                                                                                              Profound…    

 

 

                              “…still , calm ,even

 



                                                             in the midst of chaos……” 


 

 

                    ”  To be            still         means…

 

                                       to empty yourself from the incessant flow of thoughts

 

                                                                         and create a state of consciousness that is open and

 

                                                                                                                                            receptive….”

 

 

 

 

                   ”  The stilled mind is like a mirror.


                                                     It  doesn’t process ; it just reflects.

 

                                                                                             at any moment it is free…”
