This lotus was photographed a couple of years ago in Sarnath, Buddhist center near Varanassi.  I thought it a fitting background for this idea.

Lotus pond in Sarnath

Think about it…I’d love to hear your comments and feedback.

The message is quite profound …truly thought provoking. We generally allow our emotions to determine our response to others. If we would take the time, become aware and alert to what is behind the emotion, be mindful of where its source is within ourselves,  before we respond, before we judge…life would be so much simpler, balanced and tranquil.

The Amazing Art of Flowers

DSC02062

These amazing views are on a corner in the city of  Herzlia (not far from Tel Aviv) on the way to the next city, Raanana via Arlozorov Street.  I had assumed it was the work of Nature at its stunning best, but when I stopped to photograph the fantastic views, I met someone else there who was also photographing  it.  And to my great surprise he told me that this is the work of a person!  It is planned, seeded and maintained from year to year by creative, artistic genius Ofer Hochberg from Givat Brenner.  And Herzlia is the only city in Israel which allocates funds for creating such beauty within its city.

Hope you enjoy seeing all the photos below as much as I enjoyed photographing them!!

The Magical Charms of Nature

DSC01947

Nothing can compare with the calming effects of Nature.

Green is the color of the heart chakra…the chakra of love. God has given us so much Green in Nature to remind us always of His great love for us.

The healing sound of water

is probably my favorite sound in Nature and I can never get enough of hearing it.

It is so calming…music to my whole being, body, mind, soul and spirit .

And no need to go all the way to India for it. These magical sounds and scenes are from Nahal Farod, Galilee, Israel.  Here is a short video where you can both see and HEAR the flowing waters.

Spring is in the Air!!

cover

Anything that can flower, is doing so.  Bringing with it amazing sites and smells, as well as itchy eyes, scratchy throat, dry cough and runny noses.  Allergy season may not be the most beautiful part of Springtime, but it is a price  well worth paying for all of this beauty surrounding us!!

Some of these shots were taken while out doing my errands yesterday around town, and some are from my back yard.  I can’t get enough of seeing the amazing variety of flowers blooming and the superb bursts of color everywhere I look.  We are so blessed!

Love yourself enough to allow yourself to be happy! You deserve it.

Be Happy You Deserve It

True happiness is a state of BEING.  It is something you ARE.  Something you choose to BE.

 If  you’ve been blessed with something or someone who gives you joy and pleasure; enjoy it.  Love yourself enough to allow yourself to enjoy it, without any further expectations beyond the feeling of happiness you have been blessed with.

Joy is something you can experience in every moment.  It is something you deserve. It is a choice you make. .

Be happy.  Love yourself enough to allow it. You deserve it.  Being happy is not the same as being funny.  It is not necessarily making people laugh at your jokes or your antics, although it may be. (Many people believe if they play the clown, it means they are happy people, but think of the picture of the sad clown…a clown is wearing a mask to hide something else deep inside…it is not his true being).

True happiness is a flowing energy which radiates out from the depth of your soul and can be felt by anyone who comes in contact with you, even if you don’t say a word.  It can be felt in your smile, in the sparkle in your eyes.  It is a light which glows from within and it is your choice to allow it into your life.

Sometimes it may be something or someone who brings us a feeling joy.  This is lovely and should be appreciated and experienced to the fullest.  Don’t deny yourself this pleasure just because it comes from an outside source.  It is still a blessing to be grateful for and to enjoy, even though it may be momentary.

But remember that TRUE happiness comes from within.

From an inner contentment.  From living in an attitude of gratitude and being thankful for all your blessings.

 From appreciating what you have AT the moment, IN the moment.

It is not something you search for and find if you are lucky.

True happiness is a state of BEING.  It is something you ARE.  Something you choose to BE.

Many people think that once they find happiness they will be grateful for it.  It is just the opposite.

If you are grateful, you are happy.  Simple as that!

Please check out this post for further insights:  https://notinindia2012.wordpress.com/2012/04/18/the-secret-of-happiness/

Love yourself enough to allow yourself to be happy!

with love light and JOY
