Witnessing Autumn

Today was one of the best days to observe the gradual “changing of the guard colours” in the vicinity. A day off would have been good but 2 hours break in the middle of the day was also a blessing. We took a walk looking for the first beautiful leaf then the next and the next.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. – Lao Tzu 

Search begins at home

We all live amidst various kinds of responsibilities or pressures. Some of our choices and some which are thrust upon us. Do you remember a lesson in physics on electric circuits, series and parallel? It’s better to have parallel circuits in real life. It would be impossible to live a happy and contended life if all events in our lives are connected in series. To cut the story short, we decided to go out and enjoy our “we time” in nature in spite of our current circumstances. You may find it strange but we plan and change our activities according to the weather forecast 😀

Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.~ Thich Nhat Hanh

We are happy and satisfied today. Hope you enjoy your day too.

सुन ले बातें उनकी ग़ौर से,

हक़ीक़त कुछ और है,

वो बयाँ कुछ और किये जाते हैं।

Opposites

The size of the supply vessel is 95 meters by 24 meters. Guess the size of the life boat

Everything has its opposite within it. Love can be very destructive if you mishandle it.
Pain can help you find ways to grow and change. Fear can eventually lead you to a path of hope.

उसके सामने मेरा कोई वुजूद नहीं।
