This is my favorite painting.
The original is at University of Arizona.
The Irony behind this painting it also has another title.
That the other title of this painting is — Gift to God.
I was mesmerized by this artwork and drawn to the other work done by Georgia O’ keeffe.
If there was a favorite artist for this soul this existed in the divine order of the universe, and was not a coincidence.
And as with the words of Albert Einstein, ‘Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.’
If your mind is a garden and your thoughts are the seeds is that fruit possible?
If your mind was a canvas will the colors you would paint look like tomorrow?
If your mind reflected that infront of you be it that roots one unite with.
The simple truth is no ones lives are without imperfections. Perfection is something that is achieved. Mind you the world and this universe is also around. The grass might be green but choices you make can collapse, alter, adapt, rebuild and roll over.
What you acheived is what was once collapsed.
How much did you see? It helps to know what you saw and understood.
Is all I have left in my heart to give is karma?
karma brahmodbhavaḿ viddhi brahmākṣara–samudbhavam
tasmat sarvagatam brahma nityam yajne pratisthitam
Karma — past actions
Barhmodbhavam — dwelling of Brahma
Viddhi — the way it is or the manner in which
Brahmaksara – brahma’s writing of letters
Samudbhavam —- ocean is the dwelling.
Tasmat — for this reason
Sarvagatam — the entire past (gatam – Telugu —- Hindi expression – gatam gataha)
Brahma –is with brahma
Nityam — eternally
Yajne — sacrifices performed
Pratisthitam — appear standing in front of you. (Implied—- situation at hand)
Eternally we are sacrificing and our story begins here.
What it says in Prabhupada’s Gita about Text 3.15
Regulated activities are prescribed in the vedas, and the vedas are directly manifested from the supreme personality of Godhead. Consquently the all-pervading transcendence is eternally situated in acts of sacrifice.
The beauty of understanding our own lives looks like this in the end. Satyam Shivam Sundaram
