Living slow motion....


While hugging, one slows down...
while loving, one slows down...
feeling the breeze, one slows down...
listening to the water falling, one slows down...
seeing and admiring beauty, one slows down...
enjoying a cup of tea, sip by sip, one slows down...
looking into the eyes of beloved, one slows down...
a mother feeding the baby, slows down...

to experience everything beautiful in existence, one slows down...
life can be lived and enjoyed, only by slowing down...
a moment is lived, by being here, not running for the next moment, next day, next week, next year, years after years...


why cant we postpone work for a long awaited leave to meet the parents?
why cant we postpone work for a mail to a beloved?
why cant we postpone work for a small trip to a beautiful place with a beloved or alone?

why do we always postpone???
a hug
a gesture of love or thanks
a mail or message
a small bouquet of flowers to a much deserving and loving mom or papa, a wife or husband, a friend or beloved...

what are we running for after all?
we are just moving closer to death...the value paid for running, achieving, is too high,...
Its our life...

slowing down has a beauty that can only be experienced...
wish we enjoy each moment of the beautiful life, innnnnnn slow motion...

what say???
:)
