A Prayer to the Inner Self

Pathetic Fallacy!
Human emotions we attribute to different aspects of nature...It's a literary term and an extremely poetic one!
I find myself doing just that every now and then! Rather, almost always!!! It's as if nature is an inextricable part of me! We attach our emotions to nature and feel they either condole or celebrate with us. I usually look more into the celebration part. I have never found/actually met anyone who does that to my extent until recently. I was so surprised and super-glad when it was reciprocated with the same magnitude! That set me thinking...

How many of you feel it that way? Do you experience it too?

I recently completed a series of three paintings that evokes this emotion and which I can not share it here as I need to submit it for a few specific artsy needs. :) 

Whether animate or inanimate, nature is wholesome and it does have a 'life' to it which reciprocates the way we would like it to do is a kind of prayer. As they say the Universe conspires to make our dreams come true! Nature, inevitably, plays a major role by sapping in the vibes and sending it out to the universe! :)

Recently, I read Hermann Hesse's 'Siddhartha' where Siddhartha says that a stone which is so now need not always be a stone, it could be anything from soil to human... there is a cycle of transformation. Just so, we could be the past or in the future...anything from a stone to this animate form of human!

Sometimes you wonder whether we humans have turned to stone just because of this very fact! Don't you see the kind of stone-hearted ones around! One can also see people around each in their own sorrow, fighting a lonely battle, enduring it all...each one of us is in pain, some form or the other. Sometimes, one can feel that vibe! I feel sorry then! feel helpless! 

Art, I feel, always helps at least to a certain extent to overcome this pain! 

Art is like a trance, a meditation...a prayer to the inner self! to the nature! to the Universe! 

If your prayer is genuine, one is sure to get it it late, but it would nevertheless be answered!

I would like you to please share your thoughts, views and opinions. :)

Nice post. We all have so many possibilities to learn, to change, to be full of light and happiness or blighted by hate and darkness, we have to choose the right way. Happy PPF, Valerie

Love the art ... and the message. To me, all of life is about our relationships ~ with ALL Life. A huge part of my own life revolves around Nature, the plants, my rooted ancestors, so I hear ya! And you remind me that in many native american traditions the stones are our grandmothers and grandfathers. Life is in all things ~ whether we (choose to) perceive it, or not.
