If Only You Knew the Rain and danced with Nature.
"Those who love sunshine have never danced in the rain". A light mist settles gently on the wet leaves across the rain drenched trees. The leaves danced green and sparkling knowing the monsoon was leaving them. I paused for a moment listening to the confluence of sounds. The pit patter of the receding rains drumming on the roof, and then falling onto the ribboned roads –the cheery gurgle of the overflowing brook. It was the time to step out of the dreary time frame, savor the season’s departure and assume an identity of that ephemeral moment, when true nature stood revealed. To break free, from the captivity of space, time and to attempt to achieve – the idiosyncrasy of creative expression, through the lens of intellectual simplicity and visual imagery. When awareness comes within you there will be a mingling of the spirit – with the precise mix of melancholy and joy that makes life so exquisite to live. Nature will steal your heart while the cool breeze whispers lovingly in your ears. Do not consider the universe separate or remote from the concerns of ordinary living – it has a sense of fun that verges on the erotic. It’s unique nature creates its own story which defies definition. Just be with nature, marvel, absorb and be inspired to delve into its complexity and incarnated divinity in a spontaneous way with total aesthetic freedom. There is sadness in beauty when you understand this you will no longer be unhappy. The mystic experience and realization – That the entire inverse is nothing but a blissful fort of consciousness. -Vinay-
