“When you do things from your heart, you feel a river is moving in you, a joy.”- Rumi
When I see a river, I feel that I see the image of my liveliness. The river is very much connected to animation. It flows with its own rhythm. It comes out from the mountain and then travels a long path through different places and meets the ocean, finally. The sole purpose of its travel is to meet the ocean. When it travels through the lands, all the creatures and natures are benefitted by its water. The river is free flowing and it is flowing for a great purpose, that is; to meet the ocean. Therefore, its flow in everywhere is so purposeful.
When you will move ahead for a great purpose, your every path will be purposeful. You may get struck by obstacles like rocks or mountain, which you cannot move, but later you will see, those actually guided you to fulfil your purpose. Your flow of life may be slow when your mind is loaded with the social waste like anger, fear, disgust, jealousy, and so forth similar emotions. Then your travel becomes so painful. Pain always distracts us from external affairs. It helps to narrow your flow towards the sea, which rests inside you. It leads you to find the path of your soul purpose. Ultimately, it will guide you to reach in the ocean where your all emotions transcend. It is the world of immense wisdom. Knowing our true Self is the sole purpose of our lives. We are blessed with this body to know the ultimate truth of life. For that reason, when we do things from our heart, we feel the river is moving within us.
Last month, I got an opportunity for multiple small trips. During those trips, I visited three rivers The Ganges, The Godavari and The Cauvery of India. I have clicked some snaps of those by my untrained hands. I just clipped those photos to express my feelings with those rivers.
The River Godavari has found its way through the gaps of Eastern Ghat hill range. Pictures are taken in Papikundulu, near Rajmundry, Andhra pradesh, India.
The Ganges, largest river of Asia, carrying urban waste while it is passing through the city, Kolkata in India. Photos are taken from Dakshineswar near kolkata in India.
Photos of the river cauvery are taken at Coorg near Banglore, India.
