It is Beauty I Love πŸ’• πŸ’– πŸ’—

I See Thee Painting

“O Cosmic Light, every day I see Thee painting the sky in bright colors. I watch Thee clothe the bare soil with green grass. Thou art in the warmth of the sunshine. Oh, Thou art so plainly present everywhere!”

Paramahansa Yogananda

“Whenever you see a beautiful sunset, think to yourself: “It is God’s painting on the sky.” As you look into the face of each person you meet, think within: “It is God who has become that form.” Apply this trend of thought to all experiences: “The blood in my body is God; the reason in my mind is God; the love in my heart is God; everything that exists is God.”

Whatever I am today is a gift of my Guru, Paramahansa Yogananda. One of these gifts is my love for nature and travel. Nature is God πŸ’•πŸ™

Paramahansa Yogananda had composed so many divine chants, like:

Oh Thou Blue Sky

Frozen Sky

I will be a gypsy

It is beauty I love. In love and with love I seek the Maker of the beautiful”

Swami Paramananda

This quote of Swamiji has been a favourite of mine for years. Read it first in 1998 πŸ’•πŸ™

How can one see a flower, a sunrise, a sunset, a sky filled with different coloured clouds, the smile of a child, a beautiful face and not think of God πŸ’•πŸ™

  2. Beautiful words and pictures Ashokji. Beauty is everywhere if we choose to see it. I recently read, “You can live like nothings is a miracle or everything is a miracle”. I think same applies for beauty.

  3. SubhanAllah beautiful pics of sky and nature. Thank you for taking and sharing them with us. There is no might or power greater the creator Almighty. May he guide and bless you!

  4. Oh of course Ashok it will be a big success. Even I have given my book for publishing. My son has reworked my book and it will be a small book that is perfect for poems. Do let me know when your book comes out. Have a lovely day.

  5. Thank you so much Kamal. For your kind words and suggestions for the book. Do pray that it gets done soon and well πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

  6. Breathtaking words of the True God written by Parahamsa Yogananda, Ashok. We need to see God in every living creature and the nature too. Everything then will become so beautiful and nourishing for our Soul. Loved the pictures they were awesome. Ashok I had written that you can surely make a book of philosophy with your poems too. One side you can write your philosophy article and on the other side write your poem that matches these motivational words. You can must publish a book and can find a publisher who will do everything for you.

  7. Yes Clau. When I was going through these pics I was remembering you and the beautiful time we had together. Love and hugs πŸ€— πŸ’•

  8. Yes uncle! God is an artist! The best β™₯️β™₯️β™₯οΈπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  9. Here we go! We’re just starting our day in Panama. I hope your day went well and that your rest is peaceful this night. One man’s sunrise is another’s sunset!

  10. Thank you so much Steve. Am humbled πŸ‘
    Let you and me Love and Serve Steve and the world shall follow πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

  11. Thanks for seeing the reflections of what many of us have stopped looking for. You seek, find, and enjoy beauty. It’s a privilege to share the earth with people like you.

    I confess, I’m good at seeking, finding, and criticizing faults. I look forward to the day when our Creator will bring heaven back to earth. In the meanwhile, I aim to become more like Him and less like me.

    Can you imagine a world full of people who live to love and serve?
