Sometimes throbbing with vibrancy of life and then fading into dust; change is inevitable. A journey from dawn to dusk; a cycle of a caterpillar; a miracle from form to formless.
Sometimes visible to the eyes and sometimes…
…changing and flowing subtly, taking a new course every second like a river.
Thus, Heraclitus said, “The only thing that is constant is change.”
I love rivers and the running streams. I love the way water flows in them… through the rocks and pebbles and dried tree trunks. River to me stands for the way of life always flowing never stopping – always learning and growing- till it meets its end. Water a true symbol of strength and force also symbolizes calmness and life-giving energy.
Nature and everything in it symbolizes life, beauty, creativity and uniqueness to me. Nature is not only a teacher but a true artist as well (always at work creating something marvelous). The tree below looks like a human to me trying to reach for the sky. I had other photos as well to share but because of an error was not able to upload.
Light a symbol of hope and goodness.
Deep waters run by the shore. Mystery hidden beneath its cold. One can dive in the still waters to find pots of gold.

In the deep woods the soul can be lost, paths can be forgotten and the deepest fears of mind can be encountered. In the depths of darkness mind becomes weak and body loses control.

Depth can be darkness, can be fear, can be beastly. But depth can also be stillness and calmness. With the warm glow of courage in this stillness one can find peace and wisdom. I wonder that’s why saints used to meditate in dark woods or calm mountains as this helped them to attain enlightenment.
