Awaken


It’s a known thing that how we choose to live decides our lives.
Lose our sense of wonder, playfulness, joy in simple things, we lose our lives.

What I value above all is, I guess, being a child at heart.

A sense of awakening in our lives is required time to time.

An awakening of the mind, body, emotions and spirit.

As Einstein puts it,

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

Or as Robin Sharma says,

“The secret of happiness is simple: find out what you truly love to do and then direct all of your energy towards doing it. Once you do this, abundance flows into your life and all your desires are filled with ease and grace.”

So, my biggest love in my life, my art, tries to capture a renewal mantra.
 

I have used guache, acrylics, pastels and liners to paint. 

awaken mind body emotions spirit     


 

To add to this, 
I also want to share some sketches,
done by me
ages ago.
