Follow your bliss

Black Beauty

I find my bliss in photography.

I always wonder about the ability of the camera to freeze the moment- and this moment, we all know, we can never get back, but this amazing technology makes us re-live at that moment at any given time.

I am sure many of the other photographers agree with me that as we are busy taking photos of interest we forget ourselves.

We spend hours together to get the best angle possible and we try our level best to get the best shot whatever may be the time and where ever maybe we are.

On many occasions, we annoy our spouses and near and dear ones because we fail to spend time together with them.

I know their complaint is genuine. But I feel helpless.

“Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss,
you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living
is the one you are living.
When you can see that,
you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid,
and doors will open
where you didn’t know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else”  Joseph Campbell

I am happy to be in the company of other great photographers there in the WordPress


“Amid the majesty of night, What splendid vision strikes my eyes, In glory bursting on the sight, Forth from the northern skies?” Stephen Greenleaf Bulfinch

Those of you who are lucky to watch the Aurora will never forget the experience.

You can’t describe your thoughts as you watch Mother Nature’s soul-stirring phenomenon.

This experience is enchanting and you feel you are in Heaven, joining the Cosmic Dance of Nature’s magnificent spectacle.

How true the following quote!

“You don’t know what you’re going to get into when you follow your bliss” James Hillman 

Did any of you experience Northern Lights?

if so what was your feeling at that moment?

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

      Thank you Tina.
      Agree with you about the cold and harsh conditions and never ending wait!
      And the experience and feelings worth the suffering!

    So much to think about in this post. And I can identify with the “annoy our spouses” comment! I love your photos, so I hope you’ll keep at it.

    Beautiful. I have tried several times to see the northern lights – but failed. You are lucky to have seen it. Under special conditions it is possible, but you have to be lucky as well. I live fairly close to areas with possibility of seeing them, but alas…cloudy every time I had a chance. Closest was in Greenland in the 70’s.
