The Experience!

A man is closest to the God when he is creating something. When a painter is painting something close to his heart , a sculptors craving something out of his mind, a musician who has just found the right stroke of the tune, a poet who has found the right word. The moment when a new creation is taking birth. The bond is the strongest.As if the almighty as himself stepped in him. Yeah that close. Closer than close.

One starts moving his feet on a music. The move becomes a movement , the movement shapes into dance, the dance into state of trance, and the state into enlightenment.

One starts reading, reading becomes resonance, resonance becomes visual, the visual becomes a feel, the feel becomes reality, the reality becomes the truth.

There are experiences in life which may become eternal. They might not be as strong as enlightenment. But they are certainly a feel of the force. The power around the universe. The great feeling which cannot be described in words. You may try but it would be like doing injustice to that feeling, to that experience.

Hence, you feel it, you keep it in, you experience it!

You might be lying down under the open sky on a rock. The breeze makes the buzz. It touches our body. The smell fills you pores. You look at the stars. You look and look. The mind starts to ponder. What are these. Yes they are stars, that is moon. But what are they. They are beautiful. They lite up the sky...!
And slowly they drift away....
The mind goes nil, void. You just feel. Everything is just one. The air, the sky, the
soil, the fire. All senses are one.
This is an experience!

You put on your favorite song on loop. You feel good. The music is so soothing. You start humming the words along with it. You sing along. May be you move to it too.
It goes on and on....
You calm down. The sit or lie down at one place. The eyes shut down automatically. The scenes start flowing. The memory goes back. Something, Someone related to that song. You start thinking of that. Start remembering things. You smile. Or a tear falls down from you eye...
And after a while..all is gone. You are still. Mind is empty. All is void. All is nothing. Song plays and you in a different state.

The feeling.
The memory.
The emotions.
The smoothness.
The emptiness.
Void space...

The Experience!

Wow, that is such a Leo thing to say! Leo is the sign of creativity and creation, be it children, or art, or a project. You got that right.

Replying to your comment, I already wrote about Leo on my blog and I also replied to your question here

Hope you're satisfied.

Hi SM,

What a wonderful posting!

I love where you are coming from, my dear friend.

When I put pen to paper I remember who gave me my mind and my life.

Best wishes


Alok said...

This post is brilliant!
I am an atheist, but I know what you speak of.

What you describe is so true.
I believe that every human being has the ability to appreciate what I call as "hard work+originality".

When you experience a creation that stirs something in you, it is this ability of yours that is awakened. And it feels so "divine"!

This reminds me of Kabir.

Nicely written!

Sushant said...

Payal said...

The feeling.
The memory.
The emotions.
The smoothness.
The emptiness.
Void space...
all are just the life patterns..
one follows the other
and at last becomes void.

the times when the mind soared higher than ever, the sky looked to be low enough to touch...and the hearts in love never stopped beating. :)

Beauty and the BEast said...

that novel..?

Try..U will

shooting star said...

yeah creativity is sure a divine experience...sometimes one's work brigns so much satisfaction ,which overshadows personal failures..that's why i guess some people are workholic....they find happiness which for them compensates pain they face in some other arena of life...

Rashi said...

very well written...

unpretentious_diva said...

very true.

ArUn raFi said...

nice one.honest for certain.u can gt pleasure frm the smallest of things tht u do.and those who realise it never gt bored evn fr a single moment.appreciate evrythin around you.nice.

Still Searching said...

OMG! I couldn't agree more!! I have always been a person like that who internalizes the experience instead of talking on and on about it because the moment I speak about it, it loses its charm!

sharyu said...

thats life too i guess.

Shruti said...

yes yes.. its true.. all that u've written.. creation makes u feel godly.. in fact, even when that plant, the seed of which u planted, comes up and grows gradually into a tree, the feeling is very godly.. but.. I was searching for something all over ur post which I did not find..
Oh tell me.. pretty please.. what DID u create? what made u write this?

I agree...
the experience is amazing...that one perfect song can make all the difference to ur mood!

Irreversibly Screwed said...

beautifully stated!!!...

its strange how some songs are so difficult to listen to even though you love them.. but you're right about it being a state.. and then the void that sets in.. like long drawn numbness..
i guess its about the miracle of life.. the birth of something new.. the power to create something..

great post!!..

Nabila Zehra Zaidi said...

So true!

The feeling is completely indescribable and equally beautiful.

The post flows into the reader's mind word by word, comfortably settling and taking the reader into like a flashback... Like a re visit to that experience. Thats what makes this post special! :-)

Aditi said...

Rightly said.
I agree its a beautiful feeling ...

Aditi said...

manisha said...

btw...i read dis post again..wat to do??

Ab said...

well, could it not be that when u need to do something really perfect, like artistic, you need to have the power of God more, and your heart stays more in touch with Him?
so, its an argument in favour of spirituality....

humbl devil said...

oye paaji..kitthe ho???

Ab said...

phoenix said...

fried schiller in his poem the ideal and actual life that man becomes almost god, when like god a sculpture moulds a mound of clay into a fine piece of art, when you create you are closest to god!
