Do you ever wonder what the difference is between fact and truth... It is a fact that this is a flower, but it is the truth that—long before we put any labels on it—this was simply a piece of life, as it will always be. It is a fact that this is a man but it is the truth that both the male and the female are equally present in him, which is simply the nature of every human being. A fact is something we register with our eyes, something we touch with our fingers, something we put in a little box and file away. The truth is something deeper and with real meaning. Something of a wider vision, more encompassing, infinitely more profound. And so I wonder why we tend to get so bogged down in the facts, needing the facts, wanting things to make sense on paper. Is it because there is safety in them. But by doing that are we just settling for a label that we know, that is familiar, that gives us the illusion of ‘knowledge’, instead of truly experiencing the essence of how life expresses itself through this exquisite flower. Are we living our lives through facts, rather than truth. Are we just settling for one drop of water that we can see and touch and taste instead of embracing the entire ocean because we are too afraid to lose ourselves in its waves and depths — in the feeling of knowing what this is actually all about. I wonder, I just wonder, how to make ‘safe’ go away, and simply dive into the immensity of what feels true, of what is truly real . . . . —— 🌺💭

“Every seed goes through the tremendous struggle of losing itself – losing its safety and integrity and becoming vulnerable to every outside force that’s around. But without that vulnerability, without the breaking, without the shedding of the shell, nothing can happen, life won’t sprout and blossom.” —Sg. . . . . —— 📚

“Most people today desperately long to fulfill their creative potential. As I travel the world, I see millions of people unable, or unwilling, to take on the risky business of expressing creativity. To keep their minds off this longing they feel, they unconsciously engage in a vast array of distractions, none of which ever works and most of which have dangerous side effects. When we are cut off from something important like that, we go into longing. Since we live inside our bodies, where our feelings also live, we often feel estranged from our very selves when we cannot feel deeply. When we are cut off from our feelings, this disconnect makes us ill at ease. It is a problem that most of us struggle with every day. Our bodies love to feel deeply. When we live mainly in the arid world of concepts, we maintain a deep longing for the nurturing sea of feeling. There is nothing wrong with concepts—where would we be without them. It’s just that we are in them for so long, that we become thirsty for Experience. The concept of ‘water’ is fine, but it is not wet. Human beings have been tossing concepts around for a relatively short time—in evolutionary terms, for only the blink of an eye. But feelings have been with us for a long long time. We are well wired for feeling. Long before we developed clarity of thinking, we were deeply immersed in feeling. Even our brains are more wired for feeling than for thinking. A good sized grapefruit is about as large as our brains. Now compare the juicy part of the fruit to the rind. That’s how big the feeling part of the brain is, compared to the thinking part. The feeling and thinking parts of our minds yearn to be deeply connected to each other. We are at our best when we feel a rich interplay between thinking and feeling. We get out of harmony when there is a feeling inside that we haven’t given ourselves conscious permission to feel.” —G.Hendricks . . —— 📚

Today is the day of the week influenced by Venus — it is a day of beauty, elegance, sensitive feminine energy, companionship, creativity. Don’t rush into anything until you feel completely comfortable with it. Take it slow. Elegance is slow and will not be rushed. From elegance will come great passion, but elegance is never the result of passion . . . . —— 🌺💭

On this perfectly perfect Saturday I am sitting here wondering about Time. In some languages like Hindi, Bengali, Urdu, the word for yesterday, kal, is also the word for tomorrow. And the meaning is only determined by the tense of a verb. From the ancient Sanskrit word Kala which means Time, as well as darkness (referring to dark matter in the universe) comes kal. What did they know about dark matter in ancient times? In the West we think we know it all, but do we. What was their vision of the world in order to express two, seemingly opposite, concepts by the same word. Kal expresses time by the notion of “a day from today”. How elegant to be referring to "yesterday" as "beeta hua kal" (literally, ‘the day from today that is over’) and "tomorrow" as "aanewala kal" (literally, ‘the day from today that is going to arrive’). How poetic. And it is just everyday language. What kind of beings were they, what kind of culture was it that speaking poetry was just the daily speaking. There is a beautiful story in the Ramayana from the Sanskrit Itihasa, likely even older than the Mahabharata epic. It speaks of time which isn’t linear, of cycles of time, of past which is future and future which is also past. Sita passes away and Rāma is heartbroken and the people of Ayodhya watch his pain as he sits and stares for a long long time. The people want to ask for his forgiveness, they have broken his heart, but they know that Rāma will neither blame nor judge them. One day Rāma loses his ring. It falls down a crack and he asks the god Hanuman to find it. Hanuman slips into the crack and to his surprise it turns out to be a tunnel leading to Naga-lok, the kingdom of the snakes. There he asks the king about the ring and the king points in the direction of a vast mountain. Hanuman rushes to the mountain but as he gets there he realises to his astonishment that it is a gigantic pile of rings, all of them identical to Rāma’s ring. It is not the first time this story has happened. Nor the last time. So it has happened before. So it will happen again. Life isn’t linear, everything happens in cycles, over and over, and what is past is also future and what is future is also past . 🌺💭

Whatever it is you think now, see if you can try and think exactly the opposite. Some of the best advice ever given was by the art director of Harper’s Bazaar, Alexey Brodovitch, to the young Richard Avedon, who would go on to become one of the world’s great photographers. The advice was simple: “Astonish me!” Keep these words in mind, and whatever you do will be creative . . This is a picture of a seagull, perched on a stone wall by the lake. It was about to fly away but I still thought the image it left in its trail was beautiful... astonishingly hahha . . This fleeting moment also reminded me of Richard Bach’s book Jonathan Livingston Seagull. An aviator and former fighter pilot he writes this moving and incredibly inspiring story about being true to yourself, finding your freedom, learning to fly... in all senses . . “Are you saying I can fly?” “I say you are free.” “And with that, Jonathan held in thought an image of the great gull-flocks on the shore of another time, and he knew with practiced ease that he was not bone and feather but a perfect idea of freedom and flight, limited by nothing at all.” — Richard Bach . . —— 🌺💭

We laugh together, and when we do we connect, and it feels good, and so I wonder if connection isn’t perhaps something that happens in us, and not to us. What laughter does is, for a moment, it makes all our fences, boundaries and limits disappear and we are free, we just are. Perhaps by getting closer to our own inner selves, away from all our defences, ideas and conclusions, somehow if we just tuned in to the core of who we are, perhaps that’s when we can experience connection; meaningfully . . . . —— 🌺💭

Because some beautiful souls along the way gave me kindness and courage and understanding, especially understanding, I am grateful. And sometimes they never knew it. Somehow they come into our lives, out of nowhere, and they give us some of the magic dust of their own superpower. They touch us with their own quiet calmness. In those important moments in our lives we were nourished, sustained and encouraged by what others gave us, often unwittingly. I feel grateful for whatever knowing, deep insight or gentleness I may have in me today, that I have made my own, but that I owe to others . . . . —— 🌺💭

In the soft afternoon light of a day in winter wonderland, the mountains give me inspiration and I am wondering. So what do you guys think that communication is really all about... Is it an exchange? Or is it a gift that we receive? Perhaps communication is actually the response that we get, like a gift. Do we often, or do we rarely, receive the response that we are looking for. What if, in a conversation, we completely forgot about our side of things, if we simply, truly, and totally listened, if we focused on the most positive outcome for everyone, if we ignored our desire to be right, which only feels good for about sixty seconds anyway. What if we listened instead, but in a way that we have never listened—totally and utterly present, our minds quiet. If we stopped talking about me, me, me; if we only focused on how things looked from the other person’s perspective, if we sought only to understand, rather than to be understood. How would that transform us? And the people around us. Life isn’t always a straight line. Perhaps life very rarely is a straight line. And the deeper we understand something, the deeper we care about it . . . —— 🌺💭

“Isaac Newton saw an apple falling down from a tree. Good observation, although I am sure every village boy knew that apples fall only down. Anyway, he noticed it and the law of gravity was propounded. The apple fell down, that’s true. He noticed that, but he failed to notice that the whole big tree had grown up upwards against the gravity. He never noticed that. The rain is falling down... but how did the cloud get up there first. There is gravity and there is grace. One is constantly pulling down, that’s survival; the other is constantly pulling you up. These are two major aspects within us — one is the instinct for survival which is always holding us down, the other is our longing to become boundless. As long as our experience of life is only limited to the physicality of who we are, then we are only available to gravity. If our experience of life transcends the limitations of the physical, then we become available to grace and suddenly everything about us begins to function like magic.”—Sg. . . . —— 🍏💭

“The one who first created a musical instrument, and who gave to harmony its rules and its laws, had for a long time listened to the murmuring of reeds and the singing of birds. Poets represent love as sculptors design beauty, as musicians create melody; that is to say, endowed with an exquisite organisation, they gather up with discerning ardour the purest elements of life, the most beautiful lines of matter, and the most harmonious voices of nature. There lived, it is said, at Athens a great number of beautiful girls; Praxiteles drew them all one after the other; then from these diverse types of beauty, each one of which had something imperfect, he formed a single faultless beauty and thus created Venus.” —Alfred de Musset, (La Confession d'un Enfant du Siècle) . . . —— 📚

Comment from Insta Art Gallery:


Self-confidence is one of the most attractive traits today, our trust in our ability to achieve, something we admire in other people, something we desire to have, something we look for in a partner. I can’t say I have that, I am often full of hesitation and doubts and wondering, usually taking a long long time to warm up to something or someone, or to decide on something. Our society places extraordinary value on being driven and confident and on acting with confidence. But I have come to realise that self-confidence doesn’t matter. It is just a social thing. What really matters is clarity. To have clarity, vision. To see clearly. Because confidence without clarity is a disaster. Imagine trying to cross the street, with complete confidence but without seeing clearly what is going on... If the president of a major nation today, someone who invariably acts with complete and utter confidence without vision, or clarity, or understanding of any situation - is being laughed at around the world, what does that tell us... When we are self confident and we act, but without complete clarity — we either look silly, or in the worst case scenario — there could be major serious consequences for us, or for the world. In any situation if you see everything clearly, from all possible points of view, you will always know the right thing to do—whether you do it confidently, or hesitantly, or shyly, or whichsoever way... We shouldn't be worrying about self confidence. Only about enhancing our senses, our ability to see—and to feel—the situation with all our senses and developing our senses of deeper understanding and experiencing that we don’t even know we have right now. Then caring deeply, and acting well and gracefully in any situation will come easy . . —— 🌺💭

I asked her why she was out so early and she answered that there were too many books and far too little time. And there she was absolutely right.” —Tove Jansson . . . “Lie on the bridge and watch the water flowing past. Or run, or wade through the swamp in your red boots. Or roll yourself up and listen to the rain falling on the roof. It's very easy to enjoy yourself.” —Tove Jansson, (from: ‘Moominvalley in November’) . . . “It was a particularly good evening to begin a book.” —Tove Jansson . . . “I am fond of lovely old words like 'locomotive'. “Why do you smile all the time?" he said. "Because I am looking at you," she said. There was so much to talk about that nothing was said. It was warm sitting there. Everything seemed to be so right.” —Tove Jansson . . . “Before we left, Grandmother talked a lot about the arctic night that we would fly through. 'Isn't it a mystical word, "arctic"? Pure and quite hard. And meridians. Isn't that pretty? We're going to fly along them, faster than the light can follow us. Time won't be able to catch us.” —Tove Jansson . . . “At the end of the world there lies a mountain so high it makes you dizzy even just to think about it. It is as black as soot, as smooth as silk, terribly steep, and where there should be a bottom, there are only clouds. But high up on the peak stands the Hobgoblin's House, and it looks like this." And Snufkin drew a house in the sand. "Hasn't it got any windows?" asked Sniff. "No," said Snufkin, "and it hasn't got a door either, because the Hobgoblin always goes home by air riding on a panther. He goes out every night and collects rubies in his hat." "Rubies! Where does he get them from?" "The Hobgoblin can turn himself into anything he likes, and then he can crawl under the ground and even down onto the sea bed where buried treasure lies.” —Tove Jansson, (T. Jansson was a 20th century author and painter, she both wrote and illustrated her books. As a Finn whose mother tongue was Swedish, she was part of the Swedish-speaking Finns minority and so all of her books were originally written in Swedish.) . . —— 📚

Do you ever wonder what this world actually looks like? Not the world that we see, but the world that is. The way colours happen, for instance, is so curious — in reality they aren’t intrinsic to the objects they ‘define’. Our eyes only see physical objects (because they reflect light) but every object has the curious quality of absorbing all frequencies along the wavelength spectrum of white light except one which they give off and our eyes then perceive as that colour. White reflects the entire spectrum, black absorbs all of it without reflecting anything so it looks totally dark to us, magenta holds back all other wavelengths and only reflects ‘magenta’ so we perceive it as such. But it really isn’t. And besides — although it may be pink-purplish for us, it may not be that for other creatures whose eyes work differently from ours... So what does this flower, and every object around, really look like? Is it colourless, or does it have some other ‘colour’ different from the one we see? Why is it we don’t see the actual colour of anything in the world around us, but only the reflecting light of the spectrum, and how can we unlock that magic to ‘see’ the thing as it really is. The grass isn’t really green, it’s only that wavelength of the spectrum that it is giving away from the white light that gets to it from the sun. The sky isn’t really blue... once you are there, you don’t find any blue, and actually - it gets even more mysterious - the colour blue has a refraction quality which is completely different from all the other colours. Is our ‘seeing’ of the world which we see our own creation, just there for us to play with, to make it whatever way we want it. Is the actual reality something else entirely — is it in ‘colours’ that we can’t even imagine, or entirely colourless; in proportions that we can’t even imagine, or entirely without proportions and limits, or boundaries of any kind . . . —— 🌺💭 flowersthatmakeyouwonder

“The splendour of a human heart that trusts it is loved unconditionally gives the universe more pleasure, infinitely more pleasure, than Westminster cathedral, or the Sistine chapel, or Beethoven’s ‘Ninth symphony’, Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, the sight of ten thousand butterflies in flight... or the scent of a million orchids in bloom. Trust is our enchanting gift back to the universe. It is how we move through life with elegance and grace, blossoming, infrequently but with exquisite taste, and perfect timing, like a rare bloom, like a rare orchid. How glorious the splendour of a human heart that trusts that it is loved.” —Brennan Manning . . . . —— orchidée

And as we welcome in and embrace a new and exciting year, I hope the last few days of the old year were magical for you, I hope you spent them somewhere warm, and cosy, and beautiful, and I hope this new year has started even more beautifully. I hope you are feeling excited with lots of new ideas and plans and I hope that you walk facing the sun and that nothing is holding you back from loving life deeply. I hope that you feel cherished, and that the people you have in your life who are closest to you, the people who know and understand the real you - deeply care about you and always give you their unwavering support, appreciation and affection no matter what. I wish you that — this year and always 💛 And in the words of the poet: May our hearts be as pure as crystal our minds as bright as the Sun our soul as vast as the Universe and our spirit in tune with the One . . . —— ♡
