What really matters is just that you create.⠀
Growth only happens through action. You can't watch enough videos to get good at art. You can't just read tutorials or devour books. You can't just go to galleries and museums to look at the classics.⠀
If you want to get good, you have to get in and get your hands dirty. And that will lead to a lot of bad art. That's okay! Every artist you have ever admired has years and years of bad art behind them. No one springs from the womb as an accomplished artist. Art (no matter what kind) is a learned skill, not a talent. Everyone has to suck before they get good.⠀
So if you're hung up on the shitty art stage, then keep on pushing. Every painting that falls flat, every crap drawing, every failed photograph -- they all get you closer to your goal.⠀
Go make a mess. Try something new. Push your limits. And don't worry about WHAT you create. Just create something.⠀

My heart feels heavy and overwhelmed with emotions but really content and calm too as I leave this beautiful Mysore city soon,, ❤️
What I will miss the most perhaps is entering the shala everyday to Guruji’s ever smiling and radiant face which would make anybody’s ( whoever enters this magical shala ) biggest of agony or grief melt away in seconds just by having a glimpse of Guruji’s ever smiling face and commitment to teach students everyday tirelessly for hours !! As he says aptly - A True Yogi is not someone who merely masters the physical asanas that I would teach them,,A True Yogi is someone who knows how to remain untouched and unaffected with the “Sukha” and “Dukha” ( Highs and Lows) that life gives us and is unharmed by both😊
A True Yogi is also someone who doesn’t hold his head high up in the air with ego , but someone who also knows how to bow down in gratitude ( not just to his teachers or people who matter to us but to everyone without having any biases basis their gender , nationality , religion , caste , colour , culture , wealth etc🙏
One should be unperturbed by both these moments of extreme joy or extreme sorrow, and that is the right path of being a true Yogi 🙏🙏
Grateful to my Almighty to have been here in this sacred Shala and seek Guruji’s blessings and bowing to his lotus feet and have paramguru @sharathjois as our guiding star and path Illuminator himself and always welcoming us everyday in the shala with his ever smiling face ,wit and humour 🙏🙏 My joy knows no bounds as I leave this place today, my heart and bag overwhelmed and packed with plethora of beautiful memories from this place with soo many wonderful practitioners from different cultures , countries who have been soo humble, warm and helpful ❤️ such an honour to have practiced here 🙏

I love the feeling of vinyasa❤️.
That feeling where you exist only you and your body, connecting each and every one of your senses😇💭💭 regardless of the accurancy of the asana, only feeling... leaving out for the moment😌🙏🏼.... Practice; not perfection.....
Tiempo de #vinyasa ⌛️
Amo la sensación de un vinyasa.
Ese momento en el que solo existes tu y tu cuerpo, conectando todos y cada uno de tus sentidos, independientemente de la exactitud de la asana...viviendo solo el momento😍😍😍. Práctica, no perfección....
Snatch snatch snatch....
The only way to get this cannonball in control is practice.... 8,12 and the toughest were the yellow 16’s. But this is just amazing fun!!!😁😁😁 My sincere gratitude to @paragmhetre.ekfa for the patience
