LOVE & BUTTERFLY XO

Searching for love, like

Catch cluttering butterfly

Ignored, came both, xo

It is like this, you search for happiness and love, the more you try to find it, the more it seems to go away, we would think we have almost got it, like the failed attempts to catch the cluttering butterfly from flower to flower. The more we try to catch it, the more it chases. So, ignore it and sit at a place, it shall come flying and shall rest on our chest or cheeks. So is love and happiness, the more you try to find it the more illusory it looks and almost makes one, to further not to attempt. The more the greed to find happiness in the mundane world the more it chases. When one ignores his/her wanting, love and happiness shall come in swift.

So, both LOVE and the BUTTERFLY shall xo.

      Tony!
      I just Love your open mindedness and the love signals you send. Perhaps sometimes it so happens too much of open mindedness to too many people shall dig us to graves. So, I think we have to be cautious on that with this blo….y world.
      I thank you for your ever boosting comments. Watchout for the next poem scheduled during the coming week. I am sure you shall just enjoy reading it.
      If everyone endorses this as you have, then the world shall be a paradise of what I think of.
      Have a nice weekend my Dear friend.

    So true! Thanks for this. Both are truly elusive, and surprise when we least expect. And I like the moving butterfly pictures too.

    I love that first picture! You are spot on with this Shiva and many a heart would not have been broken if only it heeded this advice. We are all guilty of chasing love and when we have given up on it sometimes it does come to us!! Once again such an insightful lesson you teach us! Perhaps someone will listen and love will come to them!!

      Thanks Deb!
      In fact I had scheduled it for Monday the 22nd but I think I pressed the Publish button and it got immediately published yesterday night. You see, and as I have seen, weekends people are very inactive on blogs, especially the west. They seem to make it a perfect weekend holiday. I can always see that on my stats.

      Perhaps as you say if one heeds to the thought love and happiness shall come to them like an Epiphany.

      Today I am feeling fine and the feelings and healing vibrations you sent have worked. So from tomorrow I shall be back to work. Actually my boys are working even today and they have not had past two weekends. This is an auspicious month for us in India during the mid of Aug to Mid of Sept wherein lot of spiritual activities will be going and house warming and new shop openings will take place during this time.Our product being the door for shops they all want them to be installed during this period so the rush and the hectic. Most Hindus believe that doors should be installed on auspicious days.

      I am so happy that you all receive my posts with such open minds and express your feelings which makes me feel as if I have received tons of Love. I feel the eastern mind is not like that, they take one step back to say good of someone or something. One more thing I would like to tell you is the highest views I get for my Blog is from the US next is UK and then India and then the others almost from ninety countries. It’s been an Epiphany again in my life after I came to this blog world, such an enormous amount of satisfaction I get when you all comment. Sometime I shall tell you how it all came from my Heart. It is again a wonderful story, maybe you will be stunned to hear it.

      I am sure as you open your eyes this Sunday morning you shall feel so fresh and good as I am sending packets of Love and Affection.

      Shiva

        Good morning Shiva! That’s very interesting about the doors and needed to be installed during the spiritual season. I love all the customs and beliefs that are held in the east. Yes here in the west I believe we are more open and accepting of others’ differences, which is something I am proud of. However we are not as accepting as we should be. God put us all here, no one is better than the other. We come in all shapes, sizes, colors, genders and if we didn’t how boring that would be. Unfortunately some don’t like differences or better yet are afraid of differences so rather than embracing the different soul they stay far away and don’t bother to learn about the difference which would enhance their life! So sad.
        Well don’t work your boys too hard or they too will become ill. Do you sell different colored doors and different style doors or are they standard business doors?
        Yes we do take our weekends very seriously because we work so many hours during the week without afternoon naps or much needed breaks…so when the weekend comes we cherish and enjoy it!!
        I too get much satisfaction from all my friends here in the blogging world, their are so many wonderful people which I believe is a reflection of the many many wonderful people throughout the world. Not the bad people as the news would portray, I believe they are a very small fraction of society sadly because negativity sells they get all the attention! But we the loving, peaceful, generous, kind, caring people truly dominate this world!
        Thank you for the packets of Love and Affection you have sent my way, they have Blessed me and my day and I’m am ever grateful for them and you!!
        Have a Blessed day and I’m so glad you are having and enjoying all of your epiphanies!! 😉
        Deb!!

    This is lovely, Shiva and something to reflect and meditate on. We are raised to think we will recognize love and be able to pursue it. It is better to let it come and alight on our shoulder and give it a good stopping place. Not too aggressive and not unappreciative, no?

    I love the butterflies. Always such a positive image.

    You are very kind and good, Shiva and I am thankful we are friends across so many miles.

    Namaste.

      Namaste Beth,
      This post has resonated in toto with you.
      Very well said not aggressive and not unappreciative. Yes that should be the stand and approach.
      Butterflies as you said are real positive living images.
      Beth I am blessed to have a friend like you, no matter thousands of miles away but close to our hearts.
      Do not forget to read my Post on Monday the 5th Sept as it shall make you simply smile as it is simple way to enlightenment ; the rest after your comment.
      Fond Regards,
      Shiva

    I love butterflies, spent a lot of my childhood day chasing them. Caught a few, but then released them soon after for fear of them dying. Love is indeed just as elusive as the butterfly. Like the butterfly hold onto it too tightly and it dies.

    Great post, awesome images.

      This is a very humble comment only which can come out from beautiful hearts, which are very few in this world.

      Your poetry book released recently on Kindle, I am yet to see and read as I have to download the App; actually there was some problem with the net. I think you can as well bring a printed book on that. I went to Amazon to buy it.
