Every face is born with a thousand masks to go with it- Marty Rubin

Which face you are wearing today my friend?

How many types of faces do you come across daily my friend?

Apart from this, Do you imagine faces in the things?

Oscar Wilde talks of the face concerning gender.

‘A man’s face is his autobiography. A woman’s face is her work of fiction”

Faces in things can be man-made or imagination.

You must be aware of the term ‘Pareidolia’ which means human ability to see an image in a random visual pattern.

 

In the photo below you can imagine easily, the windows and door in the form of the eyes and mouth, nose being the lampshade, thus completing the face.

 

 

 

 

In the image above someone drew a troll face cartoon on a wooden plate and fixed the same to the tree.

Apart from this, you can also imagine two spots similar to the eyes on the tree trunk on either side of the troll’s plate, which now acts as a nose resembling a face.

 

Imagination at its best

Now you can easily guess the face in the clouds


Devil from the Hell threatening earthlings

 

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Welcome to the missing seat!

“When we look at an empty chair and say ‘the chair is empty’, the ’emptiness’ gets angry because the chair is actually not empty, the ’emptiness’ is sitting there!” Mehmet Murat ildan

It amazed me to see this chair

Is this a missing seat or an empty chair?

Why it’s kept?

What is the idea behind it?

Is somebody trying to make a fool of us?

Does somebody want to send us a message?

What type of message?

I am not sure.

In this type of situation, what one can do best?

“There is something much better than sitting on an empty chair and that is to watch it and to let it inspire you to think deeply!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Is emptiness important in our life?

Yes.

My friend, we require emptiness for us so that we can fill it up with what we wish to possess.

But western & eastern philosophies have opposite views

Yes, while the western world sees emptiness as negative (Depression/Nihilism) resulting in anxiety.

The eastern world thinks of it as a positive aspect of life.

According to Lao Tzu,

He gives examples of the Center hole in a Wheel, the Emptiness of a pot and the Empty space in a house.

Because there is an emptiness in these situations, things become valuable.

“We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the centre hole that makes the wagon move. We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want. We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable.”

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
