“Beautiful Things Don’t Ask For Attention”

I am positive that many know the title to be from the movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Just can’t get over this line 😉.The moment was perfect when the line quoted was spoken by the famed photographer Sean O’Connell in the movie.

Indeed anything beautiful inside out never seeks attention. We seek their attention, don’t we? We want to be around them, hear them and be in their company. They are not easily available, just like the Snow Leopard the photographer was waiting to capture on film.

Even Nature’s inseparable companions creation and destruction also never ask for our attention. It happens and we wonder how?  The journey from the womb to the tomb is all a mystery. But not everyone seeks truth and likewise the truth also does not seek everybody’s attention.

We may ask.

Why are they so elusive?

Are they so happy in their own being that they need not seek outside?

Is it the positive aura they exude that attracts people?

Are they content that they stopped seeking? or Do they practice humility while they work towards their dream?

Is their definition of success different from others in society?

However much we try to decipher this elite few, the truth remains that we will stand in awe as they who, unlike the others never beg for attention.

The stupendous image of this article was captured on film during the eruptive event at Iceland by Johannes Gunnar. Many of us look at it with admiration but not all of us want to know the idea behind this creation. And fewer still would be intrigued to know the creator behind this image 🙂

I strongly believe in the maxim 'I am what I think'. A Business degree holder taught to pose 'What's In It For Me?', is now seeking to understand the Real Self. My journey is what you will read here.
