Sarong pants

  • "Spiritual blossoming simply means blossoming in life in all dimensions - being happy, at ease with yourself and with everybody around you."
  • When there is boredom, there will be frustration also; they are twins. But if they dominate your life, that is misery. And if they just come as a fleeting moment and touches you and passes away, if they are like salt in your life, it's okay. It adds taste. But if the salt is taken for a meal, you have trouble.
  • If you want to grow in Divine Love, you have to drop the pride and all the artificial walls that we build between ourselves and others. Through these walls, we keep judging others, and we think others are judging us.
  • An uncommitted mind is miserable. A committed mind may at times experience rough weather but it will reap the fruits of its toil.
  • The ultimate purpose of life is to be of service. 
  • The sattvic intellect is one that just does the job joyfully and is unmindful of the results. Let things happen or not happen---either way they don't lose their enthusiasm.
  • Abundance is a state of mind within you. If you just look at "lack," the lack increases in life. See what you have, and then abundance increases.
  • "Faith is realizing that you always get what you need. Faith is a giving the Divine a chance to act."
  • Whatever feeling is there in you at the moment, be with it one hundred percent. Share it with the Divine.
  • Love is that phenomenon of dissolving, disappearing, merging, becoming one with the infinite. Love is that phenomenon of total letting go.

Here is the outfit of the day.
People wear Sarongs or wrap around skirts over their swim wear. I found these wrap around pants a very interesting and unique concept. The tie and dye print gives it a character. Wore them in Hawaii before trying my hand (miserably) at scuba diving.


  1. after a long time i have seen someone wearing sarong... looks absolutely beautiful :)

  2. quite different from usual pants looks cool and comfy

  3. Salt analogy is excellent. The ultimate purpose of life is to be of service. What a profound statement.

  4. I loved each and every quote.I am a motivational speaker and I like to use lot of quotes. But I use them only if I live them, otherwise it just becomes preaching .

  5. Sarong pants looks very nice, cool and beautiful on you. Excellent post.

  6. i too bought a sarong when i was in hawaii..sometimes i wear it as a skirt too :) your pants look lovely..very breezy.
