Lockdown-day 6

There is no greater pain than to recall happiness in times of misery– Dante

Wishing everyone around the world peace, strength and comfort.

Happy Painting … Happy Blogging!!!

StaySafe…StayHome!!!

Lockdown-day 5: Heart of a mouse

A mouse was in constant distress because of his fear of the cat and went to a magician, he took pity on him and turned him into a cat. But then he became afraid of the dog.
So the magician turned him into a dog. Then he began to fear the panther, so the magician turned him into a panther. After which he was fearful of the hunter.
At this point, the magician gave up. He turned him into a mouse again saying, “Nothing I do for you is going to be of any help because you have the heart of a mouse.”

External change and appearance will not matter if you don’t change your inner self and mind.

Think about it!!!

Lockdown-day 4: Learn your strengths

We all long for a sense of belonging and in the quest some of us forget to check if the place we are in is truly where we belong. Some are very comfortable where they are but have you give this a thought:  Is it worthwhile to  just “fit in” because it is easy and comfortable?

It took me a long time to recognize the intense veil of naivety under which I was during my early life. It is easy to fit in, it is easy to blend in and hide your outrageousness but it is also the easiest way to lose the precious parts of you. In an actual sense, usually we are greater than how we view ourselves or where we fit.  For most, it’s just about taking a step further or changing some strategies to lead us to a better place where we belong.

So stop taking the easy way out. Stop trying to fit in. You deserve to be seen. You deserve to be heard. You deserve to be known for the real deal that you are.

Learn your Strengths- Live your Values – Lead the Change!

Think about it!!!

StayHome… StaySafe!!!

Lockdown-day 3

“Evil societies always kill their consciences ” – James L. Farmer Jr

May the head of Medusa  protect us from all evil.

Anyways there are too many flaws in this one hence the Photoshop effects.

Lockdown Day 1

“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” — Jack Kornfield

India is going on a lockdown for 21 days starting 25-Mar-2020 due to Corona 😦

So I just thought let me try to make the most of it and make it fun. Planning to do a drawing\painting\something and post daily for these 21 days.

Happy Painting … Happy Drawing … Happy Blogging …!!!

Stay Safe … Stay Home !!!

Are you a boiling frog?

It is said that if you put a frog in boiling water, it will sense the danger and jump out quickly.

But if you put a frog in a pan of cold water and and heat the water gradually, the frog is not able to sense the change until it is too late for him and eventually gets boiled. And that’s the end of him.

Why am I telling this story?

Life is full of change – change is inevitable, we should be able to recognize the change so that we can prepare ourselves and not be caught by surprise, be it at work, with friends, major career changes, at home, the people around you or anything in and around your surrounding.

We must see the signs and be wise enough to recognize it so that we don’t end up like the boiling frog.

Listen to your intuition.

Take some action before it is to late to take any.

Think about it !!!

Rahu-Ketu

“One day or day one. You Decide” – Unknown

So I have been poking my nose into the stars lately – I mean Astrology. Not looking for predictions or ways to become rich or finding faults in my stars either. My study mainly revolves around understanding myself and understanding the situations around me. Having said that, I came across these two shadow planets called Rahu and Ketu and the importance of their placement in the birth chart in the horoscope. This is an interesting line of study that I came across among other things which also become the motivation for my painting.

I checked the placement of Rahu and Ketu in my birth chart. My Rahu sits in Cancer and my Ketu sits in Capricorn. Cancer is represented by a Crab and Capricorn is represented by a Crocodile. So now I got into thinking what does it mean to me? As per the study the sign where Ketu is – is the quality you have in abundant or that is what you are naturally and the sign where Rahu is that is the quality you should strive for in this life. Hmmm…..

What is a Capricorn? A Crocodile – so am I crocodile!!! …. seriously. Now I want to know more about crocodiles.

  • They have a survival quality greater than anyone on earth
  • They know they can get whatever they want
  • Can be ruthless in destroying anything to get their needs met.
  • They can be vicious in destroying other things as well as self(ego) if that stands in the way of their overall happiness
  • Because they know they can take the things they want and when they want, they don’t feel the need to progress
  • They can just relax all the time until they feel hungry or threatened

So this is what a crocodile quality is and if your Ketu is in Capricorn these qualities come naturally to you. But you are in this life to learn something…. Or you can keep holding on to what you are and then take another birth to learn it …..maybe the hard way next time !!! So to know what I should learn I look at where my Rahu is – it is in Cancer. And it is – A Crab. Let’s see what that is…

  • tenacious – hold on to something till it works out
  • fragile hence very vigilant
  • adaptive but searching for more comfortable and less threatening situations
  • always gathering something for survival or safety
  • very aware of their needs

So how does it all imply to me now. In a nutshell – I can keep the strength of the crocodile but shred the laziness of the crocodile. Rather than waiting for the right moment and acting only when necessary I have to start being the adaptive and busy crab that is constantly doing things to add value to my life. Yawwwnnnn………

So….. the Crab in me has gathered enough information for this post and now the Crocodile in me just wants to laze on that rock …. 🙂 Moreover its a Sunday…. move away crab!!!

Happy Blogging & Happy Sunday!!!
