LAPC # 166- Artificial Light

“Life’s true face is the skull” Nikos Kazantzakis

“Light always follows the path of the beautiful” Unknown

Well said.

What is our true beauty?

Our inherent beauty is covered by skin and flesh, once you remove them you get the original beauty.

The original beauty in the form of the skeleton is similar both for men and women.

That’s our actual beauty, appearance-wise.

Do we love it?

Ironically we hate to even have a glance.

We fear them (skelephobia).

Many say human skulls are ugly and scary.

My guess is people are scared because the very thought of a skull reminds one, of death.

But certain people who study medicine, forensic specialists and police personnel are used the skulls.

I understand that those who practice ‘black magic’ or witchcraft’ use humans and animal skulls.

What is the real definition of beauty? (when we are alive)

Strangely all of us come with different definitions.

Depends on individual mindset.

People see beauty in appearance, dress, jewellery, hairstyle, perfect body…and the list is long.

“People who look for only external beauty have not yet learnt the true meaning of beauty. True beauty is not in how people look. It is in how people love, care, and share”
Avijeet Das

My definition of beauty is being ‘happy’ irrespective of the events in one’s life.

Divine Light

“Everything happens in divine order. The good, the bad, the unexpected & the unfortunate. No matter what is in front of you, it’s part of your path. Follow, trust, believe, forgive, be grateful and keep pushing!!” Unknown

Images of God are an essential part of Hindu religious festivals.

Large images of Deity, studded with a series of lights glowing with different bright colours are common and shine brightly during the nighttime.

How are these Images with colourful lights made?

The picture of the Deity is sketched out in chalk on the ground, and bamboo is cut to form the frame accordingly. Now serial lights are placed along the outline of the picture and in the majority of the cases, electricians and artists join together to give a Divine appearance.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    you have great wisdom about contentment and appreciation for being alive – also the inner beauty theme here was a nice takeaway – lek this Das quote
    “People who look for only external beauty have not yet learnt the true meaning of beauty. True beauty is not in how people look. It is in how people love, care, and share”
