Chimes Of Freedom

Category :
"Through the mad mystic hammering of the wild, ripping hail
The sky cracked its poems in naked wonder,
That the clinging of the church bells blew far into the breeze
Leaving only bells of lightning and it's thunder.
Striking for the gentle, striking for the kind,
Striking for the guardians and protectors of the mind,
An' the unpawned painter behind beyond his rightful time,
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing."
Chimes Of Freedom by Bob Dylan

I don't believe in trying to capture nature in photographs because they represent a futile an attempt to do better than nature. Yet I could not hold myself back using a simple iPhone camera. However, I do believe qualified and creative photographers unlike myself have an uncanny ability to speak and frame a story in a picture that goes beyond the optics.

When greed hits you..

"When greed hits you like a wave
You don’t need water to drown you.
Whether it’s reigning king
Or pretty queen,
Chanting pundit
Or miracle–working yogi,
They’ll die by drowning
In a waterless sea.
Who survives? 
Whose minds, Kabir says, Are tied to rocks. "

Kabir-15th century Indian mystic poet and saint

Serenity

Category : Pictures

"So, with his heart serene and fearless,

Firm in the vow of renunciation,

Holding the mind from its restless roaming,

Now let him struggle to reach my oneness,

Ever-absorbed, his eyes on me always,

His prize, his purpose"

~Bhagwat Gita

 Meditating with body, head neck held erect, vision indrawn gazing at the tip of the nose; silent chanting of the vedic mantra "Soham" . Breathe in "So" or I am and breathe out "ham" or that i.e "I am that".

A story

"A sleep, a dream, a story, By strangers quickly told, An unremaining glory Of things that soon are old O thou who canst not slumber, Whose light grows never pale, Teach us aright to number Our years before they fail! On us Thy mercy lighten On us Thy goodness rest, And let Thy Spirit brighten The years Thyself hast blessed!" Edward H. Bickersteth

How Did You Die

"Did you tackle that trouble that came your way With a resolute heart and cheerful? Or hide your face from the light of the day With a craven soul and fearful? Oh, a trouble's a ton, or a trouble's an ounce, Or a trouble is what you make it, And it isn't the fact that you're hurt that counts, But only how did you take it?You are beaten to earth? Well, well, what's that?Come up with a smiling face.It's nothing against you to fall down flat,But to lie there -- that's disgrace.The harder you're thrown, why the higher you bounce;Be proud of your blackened eye!It isn't the fact that you're licked that counts,
It's how did you fight --  and why?And though you be done to the death, what then?If you battled the best you could,If you played your part in the world of men,Why, the Critic will call it good.Death comes with a crawl, or comes with a pounce,And whether he's slow or spry,It isn't the fact that you're dead that counts,But only how did you die?" Edmund Vance Cooke.

Don't remember much except ..

Worn-out garments
Are shed by the body:
Worn-out Bodies
Are shed by the dweller
Within the body.
New bodies are donned
By the dweller, like new garments.

Not wounded by weapons
Not burned by fire,
...Not dried by the wind, 
Not wetted by water:
Such is the Atman, 

Not dried, not wetted, 
Not burned, not wounded,
Innermost element,
Everywhere, always,
Being of beings
Changeless, eternal,
For ever and ever.
- From the Bhadavad-Gita

Swami Prabhavnanda and Christopher Isherwood

Unshackled

Creativity is the strongest link
in this chain which makes up our lives
necessity is the mother of invention
but art is the goddess of beauty and expression
to go through life shackled,
not to be allowed expression or to create beauty
is true slavery, hence...
the free mind and the unfettered heart,
find ways to break those bonds of blindness and silence
with art, music and poetry  and literature
to be released from those shackles
of suppression and oppression
and let our hearts and minds breathe
as we were meant to.
if this is possible in your world...
count your blessings.

Hey everyone! Here is a 360 logo animation for my latest project, Soulscapes, an ambitious attempt to distill and visualize my spiritual beliefs for my children. A project I started nearly 2 decades ago and hope to finish by 2019, it will depict the journey of a soul from birth to death and back. When completed, it will be a fully-immersive 360 degree experience.
