~~ A Jewish Proverb
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.
The pond stood still
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
is this how it all began ?
to grow lilies
( words : Divyam Surabhi )
I heard it
in my sleep
calling me softly
speaking from her grave
my son !
there is no heaven
above the clouds.
yes, heaven is in your heart.
( words : Don Mettera )
over mountain tops…..
Promting us to travel beyond limits….
Recognise that the
other person is Y O U
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
Not the dancer
but the dance….
not the flower but
( the way of Buddha )
” The little ear,
like the map of India,
were cocked forward listening to the only sounds
The call of the mother…”
” 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…
“…….the painter is in love with colours,
The poet is in love with words…….”
and I was in love with this gentle gaint…
” …every creature on the face of the earth seems to know how to be quiet and
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……”
~~john daido loori
Stillness is very natural
it is incredibly
“…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
” The stilled mind is like a mirror.
It doesn’t process ; it just reflects.
at any moment it is free…”
