This is the 300th post for this blog.
No celebratory or self-congratulatory words, no ‘looking back’ type of thing, no chalking out of something new for the next hundred.
Only a reminder to un-do some things. Things that I carry within, things that become unwanted veils inside giving me a murky reflection of my many selves. Things that end up becoming burdens, whose weight I must let go if I have to un-wind.
This post is also about a feeling of gratitude for the inspiration to do a post about ‘un-doing.’ It is about a reminder, rather three reminders for myself as I walk my path through life and tend to my garden, inside and out. Inside out.
…and remember to call.
“All sincere prayers are granted, but it may take some time to realise materially.”
“Sincere calls surely are heard and receive an answer.”
“It goes without saying that all bargaining spirit is an insincerity that takes away all value from the prayer.”
…as the wind chimes OM.
“More than any other sound, this sound “AUM” gives rise to a feeling of peace, of serenity, of eternity.”
…the beauty in simplicity.
“To express Harmony, of all things Simplicity is the best.”
Note: All photos taken at my garden and home. The Mother of Sri Aurobindo Ashram gave the Rain Lily flowers (seen in the first set of photos) the spiritual significance: Prayer. The last set of photographs feature some gifts from my little garden.
All quotes are from the Collected Works of the Mother.
