Another gem IN the wall: #WordlessWednesday
3:12 P.M., 1 October, 2018, The Beatles Ashram, Rishikesh, India
Floored by the myriad wall art that adorned the crumbling, moss-covered walls of the Beatles Ashram, I went on a “capturing them” spree. These are a just few of those images that left me mesmerised and intrigued.
The calmness of the Ashram was punctuated by the gushing Ganges in the background. The old man on the wall looked back at me with his intense eyes; his grey beard flying away from his heart chakra, that adorned an intricate maṇḍala. On the other hand, the butterfly, literally seemed to emerge out of the wall, flapping its delicately speckled wings, and flying away into the expanse of unending greens.
Have you heard of the Butterfly effect? Here’s what it is all about: The butterfly effect* is a phenomenon which has evolved from the Chaos Theory. In metaphorical language, it means that a small change can give rise to a big tidal wave. A simple movement like that of a flapping of a wing by a butterfly gives rise to a tornado somewhere else.
Each one of us is like that butterfly of the Butterfly Effect. And each tiny move towards a more positive mindset, can send ripples of positivity through our organizations, our families and our communities. Click To Tweet
