Blissful but short-lived spring evenings

“Ah, the springtime is here again, like it should be. The time of the year a lot of us have been waiting for, and will continue to wait for each year. To some, it may not be all that special because it is a season that is going to pass away soon anyway, right?

Truth is, it brings along wonderful momentary blessings that are cherishable in their own unique and distinctive ways.

In case you are free sometime , try sitting outdoors , whether its your yard/porch/garden , or a local park or anywhere where you can see and observe the very essence of spring. Just observe. Observe how everything is just there, show-casing beauty in the oblivion. The sky resembling a pastel artwork , comprising of perfectly but randomly blended colors of red, pink, yellow an orange. It feels like the sky is doing it purposely, just for your aesthetic pleasure and joy. Look at the peach-pink and burning orange clouds, as if they have been set on fire by the Sun itself, and how they are changing shapes miraculously and passing by right in your sight. They remind you of how people , situations , moments that later on become bittersweet memories and life itself changes and goes on and on, bringing about changes every now and then.

See how the new flowers and leaves on the trees are gradually growing, their sprouts and new buds appearing and leaving their typical but outstanding scents everywhere. These scents always cause a ‘deja-vu’ like feeling to form right inside your chest which takes you back to last year’s spring and the spring season before that and vice versa.The fresh new greenery reminds you how beauty emerges from within each and every single one of us after we fight our various battles and obtain scars. Even the birds are filled with glee and are chirping their tiny little hearts out like it is the time of their lives. Their tuneful calls and songs unironically bring so much peace to your mind as the Sun unhurriedly begins to set, causing sky’s colors to intensify and adding a feeling of saudade inside you. This entire scenario is such a great source of solace that you may not want it to end ,ever. If you like, you can also bring along your earphones/headphones and listen to music that is as soothing and in accordance with the mood and surroundings. I prefer and recommend you listening to “Rise to glory” by Earth, a non-lyrical song that allows you to sink inside your contemplation at that very moment. Still, if you prefer not listening to music of any sorts during this moment , that is alright too. Whatever suits you and helps you bring spiritual and mental peace better.

After spending your time in this manner on a blissful spring evening, consider if you could contemplate what you wanted to sort out for a very long time or not.Also, try to consider if you could find peace and virtue or not.”
