Bye 2016…..Welcome 2017

It’s not the fire….it’s the perspective

It was the perrrfeccct way to usher in the new year….both physically and spiritually…!!!

4am in the morning, cool soft sand beneath, chilly winds, sounds of the waves beating at the shore and a bunch of crazy friends….the Bonfire was just the cherry on the cake and I seriously couldn’t have asked for more than a moment like this.

For all the things that happened in 2016, put them in the fire and for all the amazing things that are going to be born out of this fire….the fire didn’t change but the perspective surely did πŸ˜‡

….and I’m more than grateful to have been blessed with some angels in my life who did this to me 😍😍😍😍

Wilted…

Back to Source…

A trip at the garden on my occasional morning walk brought this lone flower wilting away as if waiting for the day it gets one with the source it once arose from….!!

Eventually it is all about getting in touch with your basics,your roots and the source you came from…but all this would make sense once you have achieved the true potential,true heights of why you’ve been raised.

It’s interesting to become philosophical once in a while…πŸ˜ƒ

Perception

Have realised in the last few months that how often we take things on face value and make our Perceptions based on that. When I was going through my photo archives today, came across this very recent shot I took on one of my biz trips.

Where are you looking?

Where are you looking?

All that is visible are the silent raindrops on the window pane but what lies beyond it is a deep blue sea which is roaring and full of giant waves.

But none of that can be made out from the shot….isn’t the same applicable for Life too?

Thanks to the decisions I made, I have now learnt to look beyond and seek the actual reality than take things merely on face value…..!!
