A change

Ten thousand flowers in spring
the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer,
snow in winter.
If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.

My dear friends there is something I would like to change about my blog. I have been reading my last posts and I think the last one about letting go is a beautiful post to start with a new way of writing a post. To let go of the habit of making one with my head. Making a post and taking pictures should be a moment for me of peaceful sharing from the heart, not the mind (ego).

I don't now if you will notice a great change but to me it feels like I can share on another level with you now. There is more peace in my heart and my mind and ego are more at ease :)
So let us continue our journey and let's try to make it a bright and clear day.....


Since it is all too clear
It takes time to grasp it.
When you understand that it’s foolish to look for fire with fire,
The meal is already cooked.

Hi Sas,
Today's post was difficult for me to understand. I read it three times and yet I could not get that "Eureka" moment where I have fully understood the true depth where "YOU" are coming from. The first quote was beautiful(got it as soon as I read it) but the second one I didn't. To seek fire with fire? does that mean "what already exists or is within you , you should not go out to look for it?

Your journey is going to make changes in our life too.

I so know what you mean, once more the thing I so easily forget. It is the way how we should live, in the moment. Without thinking and planing. And let just everything flow freely.

Very beautiful post and photos, like you always have. :))

Dear Bhavna, Vani, Vinita and Itkupilli
thank you for the warm feedback.

So lovely to hear that although we must travel our paths alone we share our journey together :)

And dear Vinita I can only share with you what those lines personally mean to ME, because I interpretate them according to my own personal insights. Maybe you will interpretate them differently and that is completely fine too.

But to me they underline the fact that everything in life is basically simple and clear. But I can't accept that because my mind can't grasp that. So I search for answers which are already in me...and while I am searching I overlook the real answer that I already own.

Thank you for your honest comments and take care :)

with love, Sas

Looks like my state of mind was exactly what the quote was.
I am glad you took the time to explain.

Sas, I think I really understand where you are coming from. As you said in your previous posts, we do things to please others or to be loved or appreciated etc, all of which are normal human qualities. Now I think you are moving to a higher plane where you just do what your heart desires and not do it from an intellectual plane. This comes from inner truth and it's exactly what I teach my child that if we listen to our hearts and follow it, we won't go wrong because the answers are all in there. You certainly shed some light on some things that were hiding deep in my heart! Thanks and lots of hugs to you my friend!
