This too shall pass !!

“I see Fire” playing at the backdrop, and I, trying to keep thoughts at bay. Breathing in, breathing out!! In the company of my solitude, it’s hard not to reflect back on life. Mostly because I have done enough stupid embarassing things that I might end up putting my head in the oven. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yet, I reflect, braving the images of past.

Did I laugh till I had cramps in my stomach? Did I made someone else smile? Did I love till my heart ached? 

Present sometimes misleads you, about life, about yourself. And the uncertainty of future, is as always, a spoilsport. It’s in those moments, a flood of those happy memories would keep you warm. A consoling reminder that nothing lasts for ever – specially the sad days.

Did you see? Did you see… what my Photoshop guru of a friend did to the reflection?
Reflect back on your life and remind yourself where you derived all the strength from. There would be moments when you had fought every single being to follow your heart. Feel that pride again. Feel the pride of trusting your instincts. Remember those who love you, no matter how freakishly insane you are. People who still believe in love is blind – keep them close. Because they are innocent and naive, and strangely, trust blindly too. 

The reflection will give you a true picture, of what you are, why you are what you are. Maybe understanding the past is a stepping stone to move forward.

The troubled times are unavailable, so drink plenty of water, stretch your limbs and along with Ommm, chant “This too shall pass“. 

Why this collection of random philosophical thoughts today? Well, this weekend was a reflection-sort-of weekend.

A happy happy song for all of you.

  1. This too shall pass has taken me through many troubled times. On another note, Celine Dion is one of my favourite singers and I love this song. thanks for sharing.

  2. Yes – this too shall pass. Introspection, thinking differently and surviving is life. Good one and those pictures are cherry on the cake!

  3. I like to look back upon the tough times in my past. They make me feel that if I could survive all that, then I can surely survive the rest, whether in my present or in my future.

  4. Yes, at the end of it all, this too shall pass …When you reflect back on the past; some of them makes your heart swell with pride, few gives that shock how you survived and some laughs and chuckles..But survival..yes..

  5. Reflection most of the time tells us the truth. It also gives you clarity that you need. Both good and bad aren't constant. Both will pass with time. Btw, I love the shadows in the pics. Nicely woven with the content :).

  6. At times we need some affirmations, positive affirmations drawn from our past to give us strength…Beautiful post Rajlakshmi and equally beautiful pics reflecting the mood

  7. Reflection gives us a depth, a sense of right and wrong, a sense of fulfillment, a sense of being.
    BTW I saw the pictures and then reflection in water and saw it again and then read the caption below. Your friend is truly creative and these images very well go with your thoughts. I loved everything about this post!

  8. Like the reflective, introspective tone of this post, Raj. A practice of Asana has this power on people, it turns people to look inward ๐Ÿ™‚ Good pictures of you, as always!

  9. Oh yes, nothing last forever… neither the good nor the sad days. For sad days, I like to remind myself with this thought, that everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end! Amazing clicks and great photoshopping too.
