Passion or Envy ?

What is the difference between envy and passion  ? Something that hit my head today while eating idly and coconut chutney.

Envy exists because someone seems to have or you assume that they have something more than you, and you feel less than them. Envy can exist only if there is someone else better than you. If you are here by yourself, envy cannot happen.

So it means for envy an other person is needed !

But passion  is not like that. Passion  can happen even if there is no one .

Passion can be anything .You can draw passionately, you can read passionately, you can do your gardening passionately, you can cook passionately, or you can just walk passionately.It is just that you have deep sense of involvement.


Whatever is in touch with you right now, you are deeply passionate with that.  Even if no one was here, you can live in great passion .But if no one is here, you cannot live enviously. You need someone to cause that for you – you need help!

Live passionately !

Jasmine love everyday !

Most of the things I do now was learnt when I was a kid . I remember when I visit India on my vacations we had a big farm with so many trees and flowering plants . One among them were jasmine . Oh the love for jasmine is still there ! I used to pluck those 10-15 flowers and tie it in a thread . Not so good but yea I try to bring it together everyday , that's how I learnt to tie the flowers . I remember , before tiring flowers my mother used to make paper flowers and give it to me . I sit and keep practicing .

What a great mother she has been !

Now, When I visit India I make sure someone brings me jasmine everyday . I found a lady in chennai who comes everyday at 3 pm and shouts Amma poo !!!! I go down and buy it . She keeps shouting until she sees me .

During tea time I sit in a cushioned chair and get the flowers together !

So , at any cost I make sure until I am in India I have the Jasmine everyday . I know I won't get it once I leave this place .

Making the best memories in my life !

If my mom would have not taught me the small things in life I would have not known all these beautiful things in my life !!

This is a picture of the Jasmine I tied . I love doing it with a green thread , rather than white .

Strength

Strength always causes
Confusion and fear in others.

Why is she strong ?
Where does she get it from ?
Where is she taking it ?
Where is she going to use it ?

And nobody knows what she will bring up to this world !

She !

Don't teach a kid what's life ! Teach them the survival skills and they will survive as u did ! The survival skills as well , he has his own ideas.

The only way to bring them up as a good human is by showing them enormous love . Remember, anything and everything can be learnt from you .They will learn life by themselves ! ! Life is only once !

They must be taught how to think , not what to think.

Love - kids- peace

Only leaves

Gardening is always interesting . It doesn't mean you need a big space for it , with the little space you have do try planting few . When you see the plant growing it's so much of happiness you feel within .

Today I decided to buy two small plants n got the betel leaf and thulasi . It's said they are auspicious ( I believe it to an extent, not much)
No matter what plant it is ,never let it dry , water it everyday before brushing your teeth:)

Here is the picture of thulasi and betel leaf plant .
Hoping to see it grow everyday !

Black pen



Drawing an idol takes so much of interest on that particular day . It has to be perfect or at least good to see . I normally don't draw pictures of idols . Today in between of drinking orange juice and eating pomegranate this is what I drew with the Reynolds refill pen that I had . I drew this having shiva, tiger and a bull in my head . I guess I have included the required on this picture ! Hope you liked it .

Food for you

A man who loves food will love everything in you . Cooking for people who love eating and if they appreciate it is a real treat , because I know people who don't appreciate food . I love cooking and I feel making good food for others is a blessing .
So today, at my aunts  house I cooked vegetable rice and a curd salad for 7 people . I am used to cook for 2-4 people maximum . This is the first time I cooked for a group of people and I loved the experience
So this is what I made ! Did you like it ?
