  • Ganesha is given dominion over the Ganas, which is a general term denoting all classes of beings, ranging from insects, animals and humans to the subtle and celestial beings. These various beings all contribute to the government of the Creation; everything from natural forces like storms and earthquakes, to the elemental qualities like fire and water, to functioning of the body’s organs and processes. If we don’t honor the Ganas, then our every action is a form of thievery, as it is unsanctioned. Therefore, instead of propitiating each Gana in order to receive their blessings, we bow to their Lord, Sri Ganesha. By receiving His grace, we receive the grace of all. He removes any potential obstacles and enables our endeavors to succeed. 🐘🙏😍🔥✨🕉 Source: amritapuri.org 👁 Check out these Crystal Carvings amongst other unique, hand-selected gems available at our online shop found on Instagram @om.crystals and Etsy (Link in Bio) 🙏🕉✨

  • We ventured on a 12 hour bus ride to Trujillo. We inadvertently depleted someone's mobile data throughout the entire journey as it suddenly became secured (oops) and found ourselves indulged by yummy breakfast and weighted duvets at our hotel 😁

Peruvians reminded me of Philippines. The spirituality (hourly evening masses from 6pm until late), the warmth and smiles of people and their jeepneys/tricycles! @annefegan

🖼 Starry Night (1889)
🎨 Post-impressionism
👨‍🎨Vincent Van Gogh
.
This oil on canvas is, undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful, dreamy and captivating paintings in history. Starry Night —one of Van Gogh’s latest works— is a window into the mind of a man who learned to sublimate his suffering into art.

It was painted when the author resided in a mental institution, which he entered after suffering from a psychotic episode that famously took his ear. Some have speculated that this was the view Van Gogh had from his cell, but this isn’t the case.

He painted this from memory, probably as a way to reflect on his own mortality, and as a tribute to his love for astronomy.

Within it, the beautiful chaos of the sky is juxtaposed to the rather quiet town that lives below. Up on top, the light dances and whirls among the realm of the infinite. Down below, the town sleeps and reflects with admiration to its sky, and a humble church even dares to grasp the vastness of the cosmic ocean.

At the front lay a cypress tree, traditionally associated with death. Like a bridge among both worlds (or perhaps a symbol of the flame of rebirth) it connects both worlds: flesh and spirit, humans and gods, finite and infinite.

What are your thoughts on this breathtaking painting?

Follow @projectimpero for more. ❗️It has been some time since I last made a post on this series. I have decided to shorten them significantly and make them be an introduction to the work, rather than a more in-depth analysis within the blog. This way, we will cover many more paintings over time, and it will allow me to better focus on writing the major articles.

  • Dragon Lion Dancing is when those two kids in a trench coat decide to go pro. This is the Kaohsiung International Lion Dance. Competitors came from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and China to take part. Hong Kong donned an entirely black dragon lion and costume. Many people could be heard shouting 香港加油 before their performance. 
I'm really not so good with making videos yet but I hope you can enjoy it. I'll make a better way later. 
Seriously, the athleticism, grace, and strength needed to do this is insane. They were twirling, jumping, flipping, and all crazy mofo stuff. Unfortunately, one duo from Malaysia fell into the water.

Dragon Lion Dancing (舞龍舞獅) has two people perform a dance on top of the many totem poles. The one at the back is the strongest as they have to lift and throw the other from totem to totem. The front person carries the extremely large and heavy heads the entire time. The head even has moveable eyes, ears, and mouth which all must be used for extra points. 
What makes it great is the story they tell. Dancing in sync to the music and sometimes even the smallest movements were just as beautiful as the big moves. .

  • The details in this piece by @germe_haine are wicked. The black is so dark and encompassing of void and the flames just envelope death.

  • Gorgeous🌴😍 Comment on who you would bring with you to explore this with!😮

The infamous Tegallalang Rice terraces of Bali, a must do if you are in the area of Ubud! Get lost in the crazy maze of the rice fields whilst engaging with the environment that surrounds you!🎋
.
.
This place can get pretty busy so we recommend going out of season - we visited in mid November and seemed much quieter than the summer months and still had awesome weather!☀️
