Our life as fresh as a dew drop!



Have you ever got up very early in the morning, got out of the house, walking on the grass barefeet feeling the tingling of the dew drops on the grass ...

I wish we could be more close to nature than to our mental activities: thoughts, desire, anger, frustrations ...

When has it ever happened that you realize upon participating in such a earth-bound yet mind stopping experience ... something like you are walking and suddenly you catch hold of a gentle breeze that was carrying a heart warming scent from a flower in a Garden ...

It might even happen while you are listening to a bird chirping the early morning and suddenly you realize the sweetness of its voice ... your eyes try to follow it ... You see it blissfully singing and you are amazed what you are gaining and how you were missing it for peanuts ...

It's like one of those concluding endings of a character in the movie where they show a sun setting in the ocean characterizing both the gift of nature to us humans and also how we humans miss it quite so often ...

I will put some short stories, some photos, some links to music where I have felt something that I have never felt before ... all of my senses almost in-tune and in peace with each other and mind getting calmer and thoughts fading ...

Re: Our life as fresh as a dew drop!

Please excuse me for putting this in Taaza Khabar ... Instead of getting reminded of other people's miseries ... lets be selfish and let's take a moment to see the gift that nature has bestowed upon us ...

Apologize for breaking any rules!

The dew drop has sharper and deeper colours.. refraction effect? Lovely picture though. Did you shoot it?

No I did not shoot this photo ... but when I saw this, I realized "Ah! this is the real pearl, a gift from nature, so timeless yet so fragile"

Indeed it is... the thought that flashed thru my mind was "microcosm of the universe".. don't ask me to explain it , but I do sometimes get these flashes.

Well if life is ephemeral then any act of pleasure is instant gratification.

Re: Our life as fresh as a dew drop!

Why only early morning LB? After it got dark last night,, I went out and was lying down on our freshly watered lawn in our back yard. It indeed was a beautiful experience. i should do that more often.

Rakhi, nothing against the evening. But its just that by evening I am so tired of all the office work and other politics, that I miss these opportunities.

I should try this as well ... the one that you mentioned.

He doesn't know about the evenings Rakhi, ever since he took up the part time job as bouncer in the local bar
