Butterfly Beauty

I've been thinking how much one's soul is like a butterfly...it has the wings and it's free to fly, only if it's given the chance. The butterlfy flies freely with no aimed direction, but it flies anyway. It just wanders away so gracefully...sometimes it gets chased by people who try to catch it, sometimes it rests on a leaf in heavy storms and rains, sometimes it's wings break and it falls down...just like the soul. Sometimes we get distracted by many obstacles in life such as sickness, loss of a loved-one, bad times...sometimes others try to make our life more difficult and stop us from going ahead...some friends let you down and you feel hopeless about tomorrow...but who's life is free of pain? Life doesn't always give you the answers. Your soul is the butterfly you are holding from flying free - holding from healing and growth. Give it a chance...set it free...give yourself a chance to reach the inner beauty and capabilities that you may posess. Don't always live in comparison and in doubt. That you may not have what the other has, is not always a sad thing...it could be a blessing in disguise and what you have received is what you ought to receive...and you should live life the way you were supposed to and not in another man's path - then you may find the real you and be content with it. So step into your path, allow yourself to be free, take chances and wander off freely...find your true self. For butterflies are meant to fly and soar in high spirits, so is your soul. So let your soul do the flying that's needed to find the real you...

Het Waghela said...

During my school days, while returning home, on the way from school bus, there was a farm on the way. We used to go pass by this farm, where there were quite many flowers and butterflies.

We used to stand like a statue and butterflies used to sit on us, I was the one who always has maximum butterflies on myself.

Hey u make me remember my olden days.

Goodday Keshi,

This is a lovely post mate, but just a bit too deep for me.

How you been?

Varkey said...

Nice one

Unfortunately we Humans are tied down by too many things, family,responsibilities,even love ... Everyone wants to Break free, but only a few ever manage to do it .

Hope you are one of the lucky ones!

Gangadhar said...

Awesome post,Keshi! I liked it verymuch..a nice morning thought!!thank you.
I read somewhere that Aristotle used the word "psyche" to mean both soul and butterfly. The ancient Greeks believed that while sleeping with their mouths open their souls left their mouths taking the form of a butterfly and roamed about.
Btw thanx for dropping by at my blog..I'm doing well..thank you..I'm a little bit lazy for posting my new one this time..sorry about that..

PuNeEt said...

So step into your path, allow yourself to be free, take chances and wander off freely...find your true self

hmmmmm ...very well said !!!

nice post babezzzzz!!!

sittingnut said...

it's sad that most ppl let themselves be tied down and even help others to be tied down. i think they are simply afraid to be free as individuals.

anyway, there is no doubt that anybody reading keshi's posts will not fail to be inspired and at least try to be free.:-)

~*~ kiran ~*~ said...

Happiness is like a butterfly.
The more you chase it,
The more it will elude it.

But if you turn your attention to other things,
it comes softly and sits on your shoulder.



Keshi...really liked this post... I used to believe in butterflies...and watch them fluttering around, so happily... And when my happiness left me... I stopped believing in them...

Raised a new hope in me... I owe u one!

Cheers!

musings (m000nie) said...

we all mite want to let our souls fly free... but as adults we r bogged down by so many things that do not allow this... b it family, responsibilities, duties n wat not... n its real real difficult to let go just like that...

the only time whn u can let go is when ur a kid.. when u dont know wat it is to b old n take responsibilites... ur free to do wat u want...

to prove this ask nyone when was the time they were the happiest... n most of them will say when they were kids...

Nitika said...

wooohoooo........lovely post....me flying in ma room........hehee

Or i roam around the flowers

Or i blow away along with a wind
ma heart flutter......what shall i do...........what shall i do

that's only for u.....ma sweeti

take care

saby said...

u gott yr facts all rong DUMMY!





butterflies dont soar

eagles and jonathan livingstone seagulls do

Drywall Mom said...

Did you know that after all the time it takes for a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly, that in it's adult stage, a butterfly's life span is 24 hours. That's got to suck. You have to be stuck in a cacoon for that long looking at nothing and then you have to struggle to get out of it and then only have a day of life once you get out. As beautiful as they are, that definatly not something that I would like to be.

Keshi said...

***Gangadhar


Thanks for hat info mate...I will be researching on it now :)










***Icyblue

Hey Icy muahhh!

Yes there are times we think we have everything in our life...and when the times and the priorities change, our definition of Happiness changes too...I hope u find that Happiness that suits ur soul :) Huggggggz!










***AmitKen

Hey Amit thanks for the site address...I will drop in there sometime soon :)


**you can become a successful *Guru*. hv u ever thought about this profession ??

LOLLLLLZ I can imagine me a a guru...wearing an orange halter neck top and a pair of shorts and going OM SHANTHI SHANTHI SHANTHI...and then ruuning to eat mah chicken salad in Lunch lol! What kinda guru will I be now Amit? :):)










**Niki

Hey Niki it's normal to compare urself with others...it's ok to see if u r doing better or worse as a measurement of what's good for u...and to u it may be being married or being rich...but to some others it may be having peace of mind or raising children etc. Everyone's definition of success, happiness is different. But as long as u dun compare endlessly and always live in envy, it's ok :)










***Fatema

Hey WC girl and thanks! Ur most WC to drop in anytime u want :)










***Musings

Hey m000nie so glad to see u here Hugggggz!

Yes U R ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! When we r adults our wings get clipped very often...it's only in childhood that ur soul can wander ard freely with no obstacles and negative thoughts...cos kids r pure and there r no prsessures such as for adults...:(

But we can try with whatever we have...it doesnt mean we set our selves completely free...which we cant with all the pressures. But we can try to be a little more free than what we r today...:)










***Nitika

Hey Niti beautiful butterfly hows ya? :)

OMG that poem was too beautiful I had tears in my eyes - really!

~~shall i fly in the sky
Or i roam around the flowers
shall i dance along with river
Or i blow away along with a wind
ma heart flutter......what shall i do...........what shall i do

Just be urself...do not hesitate to fly...:)

Lovely words there - THANK U muahhhhhhhhh!










***Zombie

Misty heyyy so good to see ya here!

**time is the bigger and healthier butterfly.

It sure is ha, wow I never thought abt it that way! Time allows to us to reach that freedom, slowly but surely...thanks girl!










***Saby

Heyyy...

**my annony mouse friends are far better than your z00nies and l00nies

So wut am I supoosed to do Saby? Why d u always think of accusing ppl who come here? Why cant we just stick to the topic w.o. being losers like the annonymous asses? U put my work in ur blog so u can stir all the annoymous asses that dont know anything else but abuse...I would like it if u dun encourage losers against me, thanks! Not that Im bothered by them just that it's totally stupid to have them uttering rubbish and wasting away...I cant stand stupidity.










****Vivek_Panda

Heyt thanks Vivek...w.o. u guys I wont be rocking hehehe...










***Johnny_boy

Thanks, I've been pretty good Johnny, urself? :)


**Jus like how butterflies do not come to rest where someone wants them to rest, guess our soul shud be unleashed to its own free will!

wowwwwwwwwwww! See what I mean - u always got great wisdom in ya to share in my posts. That's such a cool way to put it...and I shall rem that...never to rest where someone else wants me to...to see my own resting place :) THANKS A MILLION!










***Cheesy

Hey bubbz, thanks for the encouragment...u guys make me write stuff I never thought I'd write...huggggggz!










***Rohit_Talwar

Hey Rohit thanks for all the encouragement :)

**whose life is free of pain..

no one's is...just that ppl always think their probs r more bigger than the other's...sometimes it may be, but pain is pain...no matter what scale it comes in...

Thanks matey!










***Jackal


Hellooooooo aww HUGGGGGGGGGGZ! hehehe...dun have to ask me na :)

***Kerry

Kerry awww muahhhhhhhhh and thanks so much for the coffee..lol...yes I drink coffee or else pigs would have boarded Qantas ages agol...lolz!

Actually I am having a flat white right now...how magical that ur coffee reached me all the way from the US ;-) Thanks girl!


**ur american irish lassie has left blog world-she'll be back! lol...

aww be bakk soon - Miss ya already!










***Drywall_Mom

Hey hows ya :)

**Did you know that after all the time it takes for a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly, that in it's adult stage, a butterfly's life span is 24 hours.

Ur kidding me! OMG let me check.....


Went to this site:

http://www.rainbowhill.net/


~~In these farms the butterflies flourish in their natural surroundings and die naturally. The average life span for butterflies is 30 days or less

It says 30 days...ok how d u mean 24hrs?


**You have to be stuck in a cacoon for that long looking at nothing and then you have to struggle to get out of it and then only have a day of life once you get out.

Very interesting para Drywall...sounds so much like some of our lives...we r stuck in work, kids etc for years, and then when u can really relax and enjoy life, ppl just die...it happened to my friend..he was so busy studying, career etc then when he was abt to settle down, he died at the age of 25...a bit like the 24hr life (in this case it's a 24yr life...)...


**As beautiful as they are, that definatly not something that I would like to be.

Nope..no one wants to be a butterfly I guess..:) I was referring to it's resemblance to a soul...

Thanks so much!


Keshi.

saby said...

i love u a helluva lott
and more




but if dis is what it takes to hold u

i'd just as soon let u go

Keshi said...

Saby I dunno what ur saying...

Keshi.

saby said...

no matter
if it hurts

no matter
if it aint true

no matter
if it seems obscene

anyone who has sumting to say
needs to be heard

Keshi said...

Saby u r right but that doesnt give u the right to make fun of ppl.


Keshi.

saby said...

but wat i say
makes some guys laff

the guy hurt can hit back
as Rohit did

Now, we are friendz

saby said...

only proud ppl wid fragile egos can be hurt

Keshi said...

how much of an ego-loss do ppl require to stand ur insults Saby? Normal human beings do need an ego to live a normal life.

It's not a fragile ego..it's called self-respect...u may not own it but some others do...

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Try saying ur insults to a total stranger in a real crowd...just cos this is the net and no one can hit u back, it doesnt give u the right to test their egoes and patience...if u so believe in ur theories, then try it in the real world!

Keshi.

Kerry said...

hell yeah! you go keshi! lol... i am outta here (school) zoom...

talk with yeah again soon!!!!

saby said...

i do
all the time


i dont have too many friendz who pass dis test

i gott only one friend in the real world

i can tell Willie
'i gott the hottz for your wife'

saby said...

true self respect cannot be destroyed by another


if it can
it is a delusion

Keshi said...

oh Saby u have an explantion each and every situation just to suit urself...thats the most fragile Ego I have ever seen, so what are you talking about others having a fragile ego?

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Saby, sometimes it's just good to acknowledge that u r treading on ppl's entitled egoes...and u have no right.

Keshi.

saby said...

i no
i am smart



u can never win a debate wid me
i beat the shit outta u
all the time


hehehehehehehehe

saby said...

there are no entitled egoes in my world

Keshi said...

**beat the shit outta..

lol u wish..u dun challenge me...u r too egoistic for that :)

Keshi.

saby said...

i can hear the annony mouses applauding in the gallery




Saby WINNER
Keshi LOOSA

Keshi said...

Saby arrogant ppl dun beat the shit outta me...there's a difference :)...

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Saby u can feel like u won :) u r entitled to it in ur own selfish world.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Saby U may do whatever u want, but that doesnt make u right...I tell that a million times :) and Im happy with what I believe...at the end of this, u r still wrong.


Keshi.

saby said...

http://imnutsincaps.blogspot.com/2005/11/i-am-ok-u-are-not-ok.html









.

Keshi said...

U dun have to drive me to read ur posts that justify YOU all the time...u have demonstrated that quite well all this time Saby. Na I wont read it cos u r arrogant, selfish, egoistic and rude to many ppl...not just one..and also for no reason. And u just claim that's a way to make friends? lol how wrong cos u lost many real ppl except few annonymous losers who r parasites who use ur blog to attack ppl - thats all.

So nothing will make me think you are right, cos u r simply wrong and u hurt too many ppl.


Keshi.

saby said...

u scared to read?
U ARE NOT OK, Baby





.

Keshi said...

scared lol na? Cant be bothered to listen to the same old 'I'm always right' crap :)

Keshi.

saby said...

u neednt comment
dat way no body will no

Keshi said...

oh give up on ur self Saby! After that u may find some real friends, ones with Ids.

Keshi.

The Phoenix said...

Butterflies are so incredible...their designs are so intricitate, but they have to go through that metamorphisis.

They are also known for flying great lengths...

I can't tell you how bad I feel when I find dead butterflies on the grill of my car.

Keshi said...

Hey Phoneix thanks for the info on Butterflies...wow I didnt know they fly great lenghths!


btw what thoughts d u have on how a butterfly resemble's one's soul...

Thanks!
Keshi.

Keshi said...

There I read and commented Saby...u need a reality check, atleast through that post :)

Keshi.

Het Waghela said...

Hey Keshi,
I am blog-rolling you. Yes that colorful dust from the butterfly wing was the reason behind me getting caught at my home. As shirt of my school uniform was white. And besides dust of playground, u can see those beautiful colors from butterfly very easily, which my mom used to see and I somehow couldn't remove.

Keshi said...

Hey Het :)


**. As shirt of my school uniform was white. And besides dust of playground, u can see those beautiful colors from butterfly very easily,...
