Grains of rice
Nature is beautiful indeed!
Rotten part of papaya skin
Even rotten parts display hearts too.
When we move this photo slightly, the shape of the heart would be the same as the first photo. Still feeling awesome!
If you have your heart-shaped objects photo collection let me see it too. 🙂
This photo was sent to me by Sheila with love. Happy Mother’s day to all mothers of any form, color, and sizes! 🙂
Let me challenge your keen eye! Look for the two sets of two leaves closed together forming heart-shaped. I bet you see it. 🙂
(This is where it all started.)
Mother-in-law’s table mantel
This table mantel had been used by my mother-in-law for a week now on her table on the porch. What caught my attention upon first seeing it was its bright color, and never noticed its design. But when I opened my awareness to the heart-shaped images and objects that I keep seeing, I then noticed clearly the details of this one.
While lying on the bed, my eyes fell on this folded shirt inside my transparent cabinet. It amazed me how this heart shape was formed.
Seeing hearts is fun. Along the road, we passed by two people wearing shirts with the heart-shaped design twice on this same day. And at church, one of the church-goers wore a dress with a heart-shaped design too. Perhaps this shape is everywhere. I only notice it now because I allow myself to be aware of it.
Let’s see tomorrow what would I discover.
After quitting my stressful, corporate job I keep seeing heart-shaped objects. At first, I thought it was mere coincidence. Until I realized it has become a natural occurrence that takes place daily.
Believing that there might be some hidden message on this, I searched the internet for any of it. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any facts or studies about this one.
There were indeed some people who had the same experience and were searching for the meaning of this too. In one post with this topic, one comment caught my attention. It said a person who is having this experience is being told by the universe that he is on the right path. That whatever decisions that person made were right and in line with his purpose.
This sounded great to me as I was still validating within myself whether I did the right decision or not. I was then a bit pacified hoping beyond hopes that that was the right message this phenomenon is telling me. And that I’m on the right track.
Rick Ruggles also had the same experience. Since then he created a website, foundhearts.com, where he placed all his found hearts in one place. And I was inspired to do the same. Thus, I am placing my found hearts here. Let’s see how far will it take me to finally realize the deeper meaning of this. (If there’s any.)
These two photos were what I found yesterday. I’ll be posting tomorrow today’s catch. This is gonna be an exciting journey. Stay tuned!
A rushing water could NEVER reflect an image clearly. It takes a tranquil surface for light to settle and for any object to be reflected off. Indra Devi puts it more succinctly:
Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.
In today’s age and time, rushing seems to be an acceptable way of life. Taking a slow pace means being left behind. But what’s all in the rush if we’re chasing the wrong things? We need to slow down. We need to settle in order for light to come upon us and make us give off good reflections.
If it’s impossible to cut the hustle in life, we may at least, set aside a downtime for reflection and quietude. After all, it’s in this profound activity that we get much of our inner power. The pursuit is worth it.
