A special place
On every trip to India I visit the family of this over 500 years old temple. Both to the temple and to the people I have been able to develop a special relationship over time. This very special shot was taken during the traditional religious festival Holi from a balcony inside the temple. At the edge in the upper left third you can see the hand of the priest with the plate, from which the color pigments are thrown onto the pilgrims who are ecstatically awaiting the moment.
Only being human is life
One of the most important aspects of Holi is the dropping of interpersonal barriers, thus a deeply humanistic approach. Only when class, gender and other differences no longer play a role does a true, honest exchange, actual being human, become possible. Reservations and purpose give way to loving devotion and open listening.
It is said that one cannot learn by talking, but only by listening. But in everyday life we move in our circles. We "know" how these and those contemporaries "are". Only outside, for example on trips, conferences, family meetings, we meet people with whom we have never had anything to do. We can't pigeonhole them (yet), but have to listen to them. These are moments when we can feel how much other perspectives enrich us, if we let them.
Create your own reset button!
Let us see in the explosive color rain the anchor point to reflect. To remember that differences exist primarily in our minds and that it is especially good for ourselves to reset our resentments from time to time. Radha Raman Extasy is a striking work full of positive energy.
How would this idea, expressed in powerful color and dynamics, look on your wall?
