Venice

Venetian Delights

We experience this world with our five senses and many people turn that into a life time pursuit and give it such great importance. So many times we are lost in the sense objects. This is what we call experience. When your mind sees a sight, you merge with that sight. You watch a movie, you may cry as though you have become a part of that movie. That is good, it is an experience. When you sing a song, you should simply sing. But whenever you experience something, you expend your energy and after some time you get tired. You cannot go on touching or tasting something for a long period of time, the sense of touch or taste has a limitation.

So merge with the sights, sounds and tastes of Venice; but when all that is over, find a quite moment, sit on the warmed stones of a quiet street corner or a nestled cafe in the morning light, close your eyes and take an inward journey from the sense object to the senses. Come to your senses! Come to that which is beyond the intellect, beyond your identity, to that which is you.

You can read about Venice, you can hear tales of Venice, but best is when you can taste her. Markets full of fresh garden vegetables, grown in the loving embrace of brisk sea air. Taste buds awaken to life by the outlandish symphony of spices brought from distant lands.
