Do we need a Paint Brush.......

Beautiful paintings attract our eyes and draw our attention towards them....the colours, the lines , the meaning behind each stroke, everything leaves you zapped.....we all have a misconception that only great artists have the ability to create such terrific, breathtaking works...but how many of us know that God has hidden an artist in each one of us...someone who doesn't need a paint brush, or a canvas to create beautiful landscapes...our mind can do the needful!!Surprised!!

God is the greatest artist and what's great about his work is that he colours our imagination and leaves an enchanting effect on our senses, making each one of us, an artist of a different kind....
What happens when we see a beautiful landscape...our mind captures the image and hangs it on the walls of our minds eye, and when we recline on our chair...long after we believe that the memory must have faded away, our mind starts painting a beautiful picture of the very sight that left us speechless....it's then that we become an artist, painting inwards and creating pictures that smear our senses with delight.
That's why it is said that it's important to observe.

Observe what goes around you...observe the little baby of a construction worker, you'd be taken aback by the innocent, moist eyes.
Observe the route that you take to your office everyday...did you ever notice that the trees on the side paths struggle to freshen up the air around you?
Observe the light rays of the early morning sun and the dew that settles on the leaves...how is it that everything turns greener than ever.
Observe the faces of people stuck in a traffic jam...don't they seem similar....all of them running a race without knowing what life is all about!
Observe the silent corner of the joggers park, the squirrel that runs around, the birds that keep chirping ... you'll notice that each one of them is working hard to make your day better!

Observe and paint a picture in your mind...a picture that represents your life, the way you want it to be.....Believe me no other piece of art would seem better.
Fill colours of happiness and peace in your life... coz each one of us can work on a beautiful masterpiece, that would be a blueprint of our aspirations towards a beautiful tomorrow!

I always like the way you set us to thinking, very nice post. You are right we do have colored coated minds that our memories stir up to re-create a vision. Thank you for coming by, have a nice day.

Hi! Sana,

the paintings were really beautiful, but regarding observation, yes thats something each individual have to possess, but there may be times when the innocence in the face of construction workers childs face ,may not be seen by the worker himself( his situation may not allow ).
nice thought from you...

Kiran said...

Happy to read the observing patter you said..
I was wondering that I too was (delibarately) following that pattern for a few days - it would rather be "watching" - "with out judging"

:-)

Thanks Sana for putting up all these positive stuffs over here :-)

Kiran said...

A New Beginning said...

Thats ok Anya..once in a blue moon we can afford to be bloglazy but remeber your blogger friends miss you when you're away :)

Thanks for those wonderful lines Margaret!:)

Readers Dais, That very innocence should be noticed by us...the worker Im sure gets a smile when he looks at his baby..any father would :)

Yes Kiran, watching so that it brings peace to you..theres no question of passing judgement..our mind should be ready to take in the positive :)
