Disable the auto-pilot

The point is to stop living on autopilot. To stop letting other people think for you—your government, your political parties, your parents, your teachers, anyone. The point is to save yourself. The point is to uncover who you are so you don’t wake up one day 10, 20, 30 years from now and wonder where it all went. The point is to unlearn and uncover. And to rescue yourself from who you became when you didn’t know any better.

We found this interesting tree stump at the top of the huge rocks we had climbed to get a higher vantage point. Its texture was quite intriguing. You could easily tell Nature was at work and had done a great job so far with sculpting that particular piece. The heat, the rain, the wind and the ants have all taken turns and left visible marks behind turning it into an awesome captivating piece of texture.

Always, the eye sees more than the mind can comprehend, and we go through life self-blinded to much that lies before us. We want a simple world, but we live in a magnificently complex one, and rather than open ourselves to it, we perceive the world through filters that make it less daunting

Sharing bonds & Spaces

Sharing bonds & spaces

There are about 12 dogs and 4 cats at the farm site where I was staying for the past couple of days. I had never been around so many dogs and cats at the same time but I enjoyed their company more than I thought I ever would. Especially the cats I could easily hold because they somehow always have clean fur despite being in an extremely dry & dusty environment. How do they manage to look that clean all the time? The two little guys in the pictures are an awesome sight whenever they play and meet each other. It’s interesting how different environments give birth to different bonds which would never be otherwise.
