On Reflections

There is always about water reflection that I find it enchanting and love to photograph them.

The photo above was a small part of Kincaid Park in Alaska. As I was there standing on the scenery looking at the reflections of the tree on the water, I find clarity and contemplation. The lake is not reflecting the tree for what they truly are. It is not this its role. The lake is simply displaying life in the moment, as the tree branches are now. Not a year ago, not ten days from today. In contemplation, this is why and what I loved about photography- not to capture things as they are, but to display life second by second, photograph by photograph.

“Life is only a Reflections of what we allow ourselves to see”

As I stood there looking at those reflected trees, I realize that this is life making its way through nature. That this very moment is unique and will not come again, not at least as it is now. This very moment, as I am living it now, will never come back in the future.

Our moment is made by the essence of how we live it. Our lives is a reflection of our thoughts and actions. If you want more love in your world, create more love in your heart. If you want to be treated with kindness, treat others with kindness.

Life will give to you, everything you give to it, only it will give you even more in return. Your life is not ever a coincidence. Each moment is a reflection of you!

We have to flow with life itself. Obviously, life will go by, but certain things will remain like the love we shared and keep in our hearts and the people affected by our kindness or good deeds. This is what can be called a true gift to the universe.

Like Reflections, there are fleeting moments in life that will never happen again. We can savour and captures the feeling of how we are in that certain moment,— and being aware that each moment is temporary.

Here is my favourite Poem.

Life’s Mirror (Poem)

There are loyal hearts, there are spirits brave,
There are souls that are pure and true,
Then give to the world the best you have,
And the best shall come back to you.
Give love and to your heart will flow,
A strength in your utmost need;
Have faith and a score of hearts will show
Their faith in your word and deed.
For life is the mirror of king and slave,
’Tis just what you are and do;
Then give to the world the best you have,
And the best will come back to you.

We gain a greater sense of purpose and direction for living our own life when we reflect upon our past, and we help shape the path for our loved ones as they find meaning and inspiration from our footprints.
