Realize Vs Identify

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

My human experience since the past 6 month has been quite grueling, maybe the universe was trying to teach me a lot in a short span of time. I was pushed to the limits – mentally and physically. Finally I decided to fall of the edge and quit that job to make time for people and things I love.

This painting is inspired by the contents of the book – Aghora – II Kundalini by Robert E. Svobodha  which talks about self-realization and self-identification among other things. This got me into thinking – while the universe was trying to teach me something (the hard way), was it because of my self-identification /”Ahamkara”/ “ego” that “I” thought “I” can make things better for me. In my next job I think I will try to go with the flow, if I am meant to learn things the hard way let it be so.

Priority

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

spring

Recently I was reading this book, “The One Thing” by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan; and got into thinking about priorities and choices. As adults when we have a choice and everything is at our discretion, is there a clear formula for making decisions so that we can make the best decisions for us and not trade them for just any decision?

I found my answer in PRIORITY, as long as we pause and think what really matters to us and let that drive our day/decisions we will have a sense of progress and can avoid getting trapped in busyness.

This painting was inspired by two thoughts –

  1. How important our environment is – we should make all effort to keep the earth beautiful as it should be so that we can enjoy living in it.
  2. How important our environment is – we should surround ourselves with people who add value to our life’s so that we can stay positive, productive and happy.

Peacocks 12″X12″ board

It’s been a while I have painted something, one because of a relocation AGAIN… but more than that I have been overthinking a lot about what to paint and planning for a complicated project, but when I couldn’t come up with anything I just took the board and paint and did a simple art piece – which makes me happy 🙂

Wall mural universe – completed

Yeyy… I am back !!! …. after yet another relocation and a whole episode of searching for an apartment – shifting and settling in …

It feels good to back on the web …. and on wordpress… never thought I would miss wordpress so much… 🙂

So, I started this ambitious wall mural project back when I was home and getting bored ….

wall-mural-1

I was supposed to fill up only the vertical walls …. but I got too ambitious and crawled onto the ceiling too … 🙂

wall-mural-2

Maybe next time we will find a different place for the refrigerator and fill up that void too … 🙂

In today’s post I will share the mysterious universe I tried creating inside my home…. I am obsessed with the universe paintings these day  🙂 🙂

After two crazy months I finally got my painting time. I just started somewhere and this is what evolved. This painting inspires me to buy a telescope and see the real cosmos and planets out there.
