The pinnacle πŸ—»

I survived 7 days without wifi and network !! I feel on top of the world !!

Wait, I am ACTUALLY on top of the world, at Khardungla pass – world’s highest motorable road which is approximately 18000 ft, in Leh-Ladakh πŸ˜€.

Leh- ladakh has got unrivaled beauty and solitude. You won’t believe that this is the place where there is acuteness of oxygen, sparse vegetation, lack of electricity, weak signals of wifi as well as network…. And this makes the place adventurous and all the more captivating. The place seems to be a great attention seeker!

The locals in Leh-Ladakh live a very simple lifestyle. They are polite, friendly, optimistic and united- all the characteristics which define an ideal human. Talking to them is always very pleasing. A group of rosy cheeked girls came running towards me and greeted me with a wide smile. I felt so nice and comfortable 😊.

People here have a great vision and they can sense things better than us. They are highly experienced people who survive the extreme with a cosy smile every single day. Yes! They are warriors and valient heroes.

The clouds soaring in the divine sky tenderly kiss the mountain peaks to form an eye catching and peaceful scenery.

Wherever you go in leh -ladakh you will always find mountains standing tall and high, looking down upon you with curiosity and eagerness. It seems as if each one of them has a story to tell. A story in which they reveal their glory, experience and wisdom.

It’s the place where you can click hundreds of pictures and still can’t get satisfaction! Every new corner unleashes a mesmerising scene accompanied by goddess of beauty.

We drank apricot walnut saffron tea. Natural sweetness of apricot and occasional crunchiness of walnut makes the drink heavenly.

Ever seen a circle rainbow ? 360 degrees ? Wonderful phenomenon it surely is 🌈!!

The sky obsessed with it’s alluring appearance looks down to see it’s reflection in the crystal clear water of Pangong lake.

And the wind that flows, aesthetically carves the sand dunes in Nubra valley.

Can I forget the deadly experience I had in the snowstorm?! My hair were turning white with snow flakes πŸ˜‚, toes were numb and I am surprised how I was still alive without my jacket on!

There’s always a fight between sun and wind. So we experienced all kinds of weather at the same place πŸ˜‚. One moment you are a stuffed teddy bear and next moment, sun suddenly becomes dominant and all you can do is to remove all the warm clothes off!

So… What I learnt from this trip?

Beauty lies in simplicity. Your inner self reflects your outer vision.

And as always, nature did not fail to impress me. It once again struck the chords of my heart 😊.

Lessons from ‘water’ 🌊

Water is the elixir of life. It represents the soul of an ideal human, beautifully and artfully. We already know the characteristics and properties of water but have we ever looked out for the deeper meaning?

~Water dissolves most of the substances in it. It is a universal solvent.

One should embrace all the positivity and let all the negativity be the residue. We should accept people the way they are. Molding people according to our ways destroy their own essence and beauty.

~Pure water is transparent and crystal clear.

This tells us to have pure and magnanimous heart as well as soul. Having a hidden face or personality can have deleterious effects and break the trust of loved ones.

~Water is unconfined and flows fluently

One must learn to let go off things that are disturbing and make one restless. Keep the life smooth and easy. Forgetting the past and moving on helps a lot to make you live in the present.

~Stagnant water attracts diseases

Halted situations or circumstances may have adverse consequences as well as an unhealthy environment.

~Water takes the shape of it’s container

One cannot always rule their idea or opinion. We must learn to adjust to the situation sometimes, if it’s not in our favor.

~Water is tasteless, colorless, odorless and shapeless

Simplicity is always appreciated as it reduces complications in life.

 

We should be like water. Having a philanthropic personality that soothes everybody, makes the life of a human more meaningful and fruitful.

 

~~~~~~”Empty your mind and be formless like water”~~~~~~

 

 

 

 

Artistic art

Image result for quotes on art

An artist is soulfully present in all his paintings. He tends to do artwork which is influenced from his surroundings or a representation of his inner self. Art is how we express our soul on the canvas. Nature is the best example of artwork by God.

The flamboyant hues of leaves in Autumn are enough to lure anyone into painting the scenery. The almighty is never short of colors!

The mountains and hills wouldn’t look majestic without those dark striated strokes. Such a perfectionist He is!

And how can we forget those magnificent birds! Their splendid crests held up high!

The sun shining behind those cumulus clouds make a perfect background!

The sand beneath the crystal clear water shines to the glory of the creator and the mighty trees bow in front of his greatness. Art of paying Respect and expressing Gratitude…

There is art in every single thing! Art of sleeping, eating, speaking, listening etc.

Without art, how plain the canvas of life would be!

I am an introvert. I adore and appreciate solitude.

My paintings are usually very peaceful and calming, not the abstract ones which portray boldness. I love to do portraits and landscapes all in black and white. Simplistic artwork is my type!

There might be a ton of flaws in this sketch but I like the feeling it gives πŸ™‚

The word “Art” itself gives positive vibes !!

“Just be like me and you will have your life filled with glee. Always keep moving towards your destination. Don’t look back when life turns a sharp corner. Just like blossoms and fish sail along with me, there would be people who will always be at your side, whatever the circumstances might be. Don’t loose hope when you come across an obstacle, embrace it, make your way and keep flowing.”

Do not hesitate!

via Daily Prompt: Hesitate

Screenshot_2017-03-01-20-06-50_1488379024606.jpg

Often in life we are not able to make spontaneous decisions. We become unsure of the results and take excess time to decide upon a matter. (I am facing one nowadays and it is really a very difficult decision for me!). We hesitate to even express our ideas and opinions ,in the fear of choosing a wrong path.

Hesitation isn’t healthy. It reduces exposure to world and we often miss out precious moments of our life because of it.

Why do we hesitate?

  • The most common reason for long decision making and hesitation is that we may do something wrong.
  • Or to protect ourselves from making blunders in front of many people (but believe me that isn’t correct)
  • To be apple of others eye in just one attempt/decision.
  • Fear- of rejection,of triggering someone’s anger, of inviting embarrassment, etc

There are some decisions which should be taken without any hesitation:

  1. To choose between an apple and a silky chocolate bar. Now that’s extremely easy!
  2. Topic on which you want to write your blog upon.
  3. Whether you will clean your room up or not. (i know…i won’t)
  4. Sign up for a thing which you are good at but still stuck because you don’t have faith in yourself and your talent.
  5. And the most important one comes the last. If you know you are right in helping some desperate person but feel shy or embarrassed ,then don’t hesitate for a second. Smile is extremely precious. Save it.

How to overcome hesitation?

  • Listen to your heart and not mind when doubt and curiosity surrounds and you feel difficult to escape.
  • Do what is right. If you think you can make someone happy then don’t take too long.
  • Set up a time limit for your decision if you think the options aren’t surrendering.
  • Wait. Think. Act
  • Know what your fears are and try to defeat them.
  • Do new and unique things which will give you more exposure to outer world. This will boost your confidence and enhance your ability to overcome hurdles.
  • And lastly, be social so that you are empowered as well as trained to accept various types of responses from different people. Don’t be overconfident and learn to get reviews as well as suggestions.

Do not hesitate. The world isn’t cruel as you think it is.

Thank you
