Whispered Words watercolor and ink 4.5x4.5 by Meera Rao
Every year when November /Thanksgiving day rolls around, the air infused with the idea of importance of giving thanks. All the scriptures and the wise though advice us to lead a life filled with gratitude for things small and big every day all year long. The Bhagavad Geeta emphasizes that our life and being is eternally indebted to the whole Universe and that we should express our gratitude through every single act, word and thought. When we see and acknowledge how we are connected to the whole Universe, we learn to value all life and and the world around us. Albert Einstein is quoted as saying: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” The choice is clear.
In this little painting I tried to express that thought by weaving the words into the composition- a reminder to embed that thought into my life.
