Design, beauty & peace - 20 March 2009
I love designing, it is something which permeates my whole living, whether it is simply choosing the colour of my clothes in the morning or organising my household. Design to me is akin to beauty, an externalisation of my inner process regarding beauty & contentment with life.
Beauty is a process of contemplation at times, like sitting beside the open fire and gazing at the flames, this simple scene which happens usually at night refreshes my soul and clears any stress, just to leave my soul at its most simple and beautiful state.
Beauty creates peace in my being and peace to my environment. Peace then is the most important ingredient of my life because it is the base from which I start any activity.
Natural order of things - 21 March 2009
Yesterday I was talking with my best friend on the web, he needed some help with a text he had to compile but somehow we got off the subject and he talked about the 'natural' reaction. By natural he meant reacting to circumstances with a peaceful approach, reflecting on one's course of action with serenity and deciding what course to follow with the same serenity. It has been 4 years end April since we last saw each other in real physical life. Many things have happened since but we both wish that the time for us to meet in real life again will happen this year. such is the natural order of things, making the 'wait period' a time to progress emotionally, physically and mentally, as life is a constant progression and continual acceptance of new challenges. A non-acceptance of those challenges can create a chronic problem in our being.
