The magic we experience is the magic we create. A magic show would never make an impact in your life the way your own spell does….There’s so much around us that we never utilize, Skies that go on for miles and hide behind the sun, Rain showers that sing tunes of life as they fall to earth, Little ripples of water that draw patterns across the lakes surface.
Are those the things in life that we enjoy, We should and we can if we want to, because they are the spells of Life, The magic that we can create for ourselves, if only we opened up our hearts to them……
I took this picture, early morning from across the Tungabhadra river. The air was cold and I could still hear the crickets and the frogs from along the water edge.
The water was cold all around, and I couldn’t help but wonder what a million years of creation would have been like !
Shadows of the famed civilization of the Vijaynagara Empire that once stood on the banks of this famous river could still be seen in the fading morning light, and I wish it would come back all over again….
Sometimes we stop and think of the past , of a hundred years ago when life would have been so very different. We never had technology or i-phones, but when we may have had the time to sit on such embankments and immerse our legs in the water and gazed at the white blue skies.
Work may have been easy and we may have had time for everyone we cared about, someone we could talk to and share our thoughts with.Life may have not been mere Facebook and twitter message. Those may have been times when Facebook meant , we saw each other faces and carried books to record our memories.
I would like to ponder and wonder ,would such times come back or would we keep advancing into this technology filled world day after day and finally have these memories in photographs only or would we make some effort to bring back these times……
“The human race is a monotonous affair. Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it.”
“I don’t know the meaning of life. I don’t know why we are here. I think life is full of anxieties and fears and tears. It has a lot of grief in it, and it can be very grim. And I do not want to be the one who tries to tell somebody else what life is all about. To me it’s a complete mystery.”
Hidden but not visible. True but still not the best.Intricate but not really complicated is what man is. Like the four sides of a cube which are the four phases of life , we still are amazing in the way that we are and as we are. Identifying our strengths and the weaknesses that we possess are what we fail to recognize in ourselves and our amazing abilities always remain as the hidden talents that would probably always remain submerged.
A little emotion of expression is what turns the world around, a spell cast to part the oceans and divert the waters of a waterfall in a reverse direction. A small action to add a spark to a life. A gesture that could make a day. A value that sets a path of inculcation. A smile that can drive away the thoughts of a negative day and a touch that would give one the much needed warmth which says, I am here for you.
When all seems dark and clouds of rain are all that remain, when the light of time would never touch the heart, when all that’s left is an empty day , you should count on friendship to come your way.
