Stairway to heaven // reminiscing on the road trip we took around the South Island of New Zealand. No phones, no wifi, no contact with anyone. Being alone in these mountains really gives you time to truly appreciate the beautiful world we live in. @anguhl

While I'm in the studio working on paintings for my show at Trailside Gallery in Jackson Hole this summer, here's one from a couple years ago โ€“ one of my favorite times ever out plein air painting with my two loyal dogs: "Awakening" 18 x 24 #OilPainting #PleinAir #PleinAirPainting #Water #WaterPainting #Reflections #Lake #sierras #SierraNevadaMountains #Serene #Solitude #Peaceful #boldbrush

Lull before the storm ๐ŸŒŠโšก๏ธ

Take my hand,
Let me guide you.
I'll take you placesโ€‹ you never knew.
Somewhere on the mountains we'll enjoy the view.
Sipping coffee,
Just me and youโ™ฅ๏ธ

Whilst walking home yesterday my battery died (despite having 35% remaining AND being in Low Power mode...). Anyway, as I'm constantly surveying my environment (can't switch off mentally, it's an issue) I saw an amazing sunset and instinctively grabbed my then-defunct phone to be met with a wave of disappointment. Although happy I experienced this visual phenomenon, it made me question my values, particularly the desperate desire to capture the shot and exhibit it without just simply experiencing it. However the conclusion I've arrived at is that social media platforms have transformed us into a nation of creators and exhibitionists. This is one of the reasons I enjoy Instagram, some may argue this is a vacuous space of self gratification (partly true), however (more profoundly), it's also a collection of human experiences manifested through images shared on a global scale. In summary, as we move towards an age where humans and technology become symbiotically dependent on each other, remembering to stop and smell the roses is a basic human right, just don't forget to capture and share in the process ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿค–.

I just had to take a picture of this @ Ture in the morning! I love how calm the waters were๐ŸŒ it was early morning & i just got off work. The sun hasn't come out yet.

Late post, striking bronze sculpture of a ballerina. She looks so calm and serene in the middle of bustling Tokyo. #bronzeart #sculpture #art #serene #tokyolife #japan #traveler #ontheroad #shinjuku

We both love sports and so we knew we had to make it to First Data Field and catch a baseball game while in St. Lucie, Florida. During spring training, the field is home to the NY Mets and though the season has now started, we were able to watch the St Lucie Mets Minor League Team play! On beautiful nights, with gorgeous skies like this one, it's hard to know just where to be looking! #OMCinFL .

If you are feeling sad in life either one or all of these three things are missing in your life.
1. Tapas ( Forbearance )
2. Vairagya ( Dispassion )
3. Sharanagati ( Surrender )

The moment you accept to be with pleasant or unpleasant situation in life, you forbear it, then grumbling stops. This is tapas.

When the feeling of vairagya : I don't want anything for me, my life is for others comes that moment you have a certain degree of dispassion in you. It is not lack of passion in life. It leads to contentment.

If you can surrender to life, to nature or divine, whatever you call it, again there is a deep sense of relaxation.
If you can't do it out of practice, then nature will make you do it out of desperation. Out of desperation or anger, then you may say " I give up, I surrender, or I don't want anything for me, I accept this situation as is". Yoga is a practice of Tapas, Vairagya and Surrender before you do them out of desperation.
Namaste
