The Trip

After the trip, I was showing
photographs that I took:
There were the tall pine trees,
the Sun rise and the rays shining through
the holes of the thick blanket of the forest.
The mighty Ocean hiding behind the morning fog,
The omnipresent, rhythmic and tireless waves
the essence of which I naively thought I captured in a photo.
The heart-shaped leaf of a plant,
its close-ups and the long shots,
the puddle in the trail going into the woods,
and a bird making a meal of a worm.
Then, came the question,
"Where are you? We aren't you in any of the pictures"
After a few quiet moments, I said,
"You just did. Who do you think took all these pictures?"
A picture should always be viewed with the photographer in mind
A picture is incomplete without the photographer who took it
A picture is complete only with the photographer's intention taken into consideration
A picture is appreciated fully when the photographer's intention and thoughts are known.

You cannot

The ironic thing is:

You cannot plan to do a great work
You cannot plan to give a great speech
You cannot plan to improve
You cannot change your existing habits
You cannot discipline yourself
You cannot deliberately work hard
You cannot plan to have a focus or goal in life
You cannot improve your finances
You cannot aspire to be passionate
You cannot plan to have security in life
You cannot plan to grow.
Of course, you cannot plan to be happy and peaceful either.

You just cannot.

The only thing you can do is get inspired.
Fall in love with something and Just do it.

Then, you will have given your best and that is Great work. Inspired work.

You will then magically "find" yourself
being passionate, working hard towards a goal and growing
and in the process exhibiting different behaviors than before and doing things differently than before ending up feeling happy, secure and at peace always.
