DO.

I've been thinking of starting a few creative projects for SOME time now, but I haven't been moving butt on it. So I said, today is the day, and started the design. This is the 1st in a series of designs that I plan on making a feature on this blog. There, I've said it so I will do it [as and when I have time, of course- I had to give myself an out :)]


"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do" when my boss Zaheer Mirza (I have featured his home here) read this (Rumi's quote) to me yesterday, I knew I had to do something about it. And then I found "Iron rusts from disuse, stagnant water loses its purity, and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigors of the mind." by Leonardo Da Vinci. They seem to say the same thing. So I will listen. And DO.

Dear Vineeta,

Beautiful work of art.....lovely too because your talent shows itself now in a different way.

Guess your new journey brings you quite a few important insights and closer to yourself. So beautiful that you are reaching out to them.

Thanks for sharing your lovely reflections on life :)

Big hug and take care,

Sas

Thank you!
I just posted a question to my readers on my blog yesterday and here on your blog, I may have found the answer, NO, I have found the answer.

Thank you so much, and who knows, I may move to India as well.

Thank you!

vineeta said...

Felicia, I went across to your blog & loved it. And I'm humbled that you should find your answer here when I find I'm myself standing neck deep in questions :)

Felicia said...

Vineeta, thank you.
It's funny how even when you yourself have doubts, you can still inspire others. That's what you've done for me.

P.S. Thanks for adding me to your blogroll.

Ciao!

Question:
Are there any good yoga schools in your area or if you know of other cities, would you please give me some info. I will either study Italian in Italy for a month or I could go deeper in my yoga practice, somewhere in India.

Thank you!

Felicia, Thats the beauty of blogging and sharing :) I put the Rumi quote out there cause it helped me & u say it has inspired u too. Inspiration and answers find people who are looking for it :)
You asked about Yoga. There are lots of Centres and streams of Yoga in India, some really famous personality led ones are:
http://www.bharatthakur.com/

http://www.bksiyengar.com/

http://www.ishafoundation.org/

And this seems to be a generic one. If you check their websites it will give you a fair idea of the places where they are located, the courses they offer etc.

Thank you once again, Vineeta.
I'm feeling much better, and am slowly embracing the Now and becoming more comfortable with the unexpected, uncertainty of life.

Sincerely,

Felicia

And Felicia, what u speak of is not easy, "embracing the Now and becoming more comfortable with the unexpected.." But like someone said, anything thats worth it doesn't come easily. So more power to you on your road.
