Imbibing with gratitude!

Imbibing with gratitude!

We all know there are many lessons in nature and if we begin to seek we can find an inspiration and insight as well as solutions to everything in nature.

However, we are part of nature and nature is in each of us…so much wisdom is waiting to be tapped from people we know!

On Learnings

There are many people that you can learn so much from around you.
All it takes is acknowledging.
To use discernment as to what you can learn
And having space in your self to imbibe the good.

There is an uncle of mine,who has immense thirst for knowledge his memory and retention and not to mention the witty comebacks are worthy of appreciation.
In fact there isn’t a topic in the world which he doesn’t have something brilliant to say … I respect this ability and skill in him.
His memory may be innate or nurtured but his ability to converse on the subject of your choice and through his take on the subject, humorous or serious is truly commendable.
And what’s interesting is this ability hasn’t diminished over the years only got stronger! God bless him!

There is another relative who has mastered the ability to speak.. Although she may never believe it,her ability to critically examine and analyze is highly honed, and she can tipple the conversation in her favor easily amongst her relatives in no time. She will give fantastic examples that one just cannot beg to differ. Her opinions and reasoning can employ every human emotion that can be brought in. What’s beautiful is she may herself never know her talents but unknowingly she has been perfecting it from she where she was. Suffice to say she has lived in the company of brilliant orators as her relatives, who may have helped her imbibe it, without their own knowledge. God bless her!

Sometimes knowledge is best learned in time gradually improvising. Interesting to hear her converse and truly valuable learnings from her.

Another aunt is the doer. Always ready to rise to the occasion & go out her way to help. She is an innovative creator. She, too, is a great orator but sadly hasn’t been appreciated enough for all that she does.There is so much she has done for so many people at times, to the point of being personally overwhelmed. But that’s just who she is.
May God give her strength and bless her.

One more aunt who is full of life, enthusiasm and cheer. When she is around in the room there is no dull moment!She draws people in with her kind words of appreciation. She is well known for her amicable disposition and good nature. She is also a great conversationalist. Her strength is her charm, curiousity and willingness to learn and understand anything. She too is blessed with great memory. What’s beautiful is her ability to have fun.
She is someone who is not only appreciative but also extremely thankful.

So much gratitude for the learnings from them !

May God bless them all and keep them safe and healthy.🙏🏼

Although I have started writing this post with few people from my family I know I can go on to write about many around me because I have learned so much from them by them being who they are.
Here it is not the education profession capabilities, degrees or achievements that I am speaking of, but it is just my reflections on the energy and emotions that they can stir in every interaction with them .

In everyone’s life there are people from the family who teach you many things. They influence your life inextricably even though they may not be physically present together over the years.

Be grateful to every person for they are full of some unique potential that you can learn from. Most important is the ability to continue the practice of seeing the good in people. Trust me there is always much to discover.

We are all blessed with countless living human books around us. They are a treasure house of their life experiences and have a uniqueness all their own.

Let’s cultivate ways to imbibe the learnings in gratitude!

Every life is precious

Every life is precious
We humans, are just a speck
In the multitude of creation
Every life, is valuable in itself.

How egotistical can we get?
To think our life is more important.
Humans are not the only life form.
Pity how ignorant we are!

Life is in all of us
Let’s begin to understand
The interdependence of life and living
The rights of all sentient beings.

High tme to educate ourselves
To accept and acknowledge
The value of every species
For each has a right to be!

Truth is, nature can survive
With or without l us.
But we need nature
More than it needs us.

Each life has a purpose
To fulfill for itself
Who are we to decide for it?
Life is meant to flow its own course.

Spaces between…

As the spider weaves its web…

It leaves us in awe of its perfection. Spacing between the webstrings
Interweaved in the intersections.

Speaks to us to understand
The spaces between our steps.
For those gaps in between
Holds us in place, as we are.

Lessons from nature,
Resonate now, more than ever
To value the spaces and pauses
To balance our very life and living.

Joy of Giving & Sharing

Every ask has a reason.
Every give fulfills a reason.
What reason it fulfills is another story!

Joy of giving & sharing

When can you give and share with joy?
And what happens when you give and share …

When your cup is overflowing !

A state of abundance
This is an extreme state where you are having so much to give. You are overflowing with possibilities in the potential.
When you give from here,
You may not miss anything.
You may not know the joy of sharing and giving as you have so much more.
Maybe you are giving because you want to get rid of whatever you are giving.
Maybe you want to self balance.
Maybe you want to share with those unfortunate.
Sharing the good always helps.
But do u know if the one you share it with truly wants it or uses it well.
Or do you give no matter
Even if it goes to waste
Because you are overwhelmed. Then that is not giving but discarding.

When your cup is half full!

When you are having some and then you share some, then you are sharing from your heart and brain.
Youunderstand and feel for those in need.
You share because you have something to share, may be not much but you know in your heart
That as you keep sharing you create space for more to come. You are balancing yourself between needs and wants.
You are careful in what you give but you give from your heart, from a space of love.
Such a giving arises from equanimity.

When your cup is almost empty!

When you give from nothing much to give maybe you are hyper extended already.
You may know but choose to ignore it
Else you may be unaware that there is not much left.
In both these cases the giving takes more out of the giver, so much so that it may soon cease.
What can u give when there is nothing to give?
You will give may be beyond your ability but then you will tire soon, feel used and exhausted.
This is a state of tilted balance not a great way to give.

We all may have experienced this at some point or other in our lives.

While giving from a place of love and trust it never goes wrong. We do need to feel the joy in giving. As long as your heart says go on, you must, else notice what’s making your hearts feel different and pay attention. You may learn something more on it!

When the giving & receiving complement each other it is truly ideal. But most often that is not the case.
However, giving is best shared when it comes from a place of trust faith & confidence in the giving that there is always going to be something to give.
When giving is mutual there is a flow and there is abundance.
When giving is from contentment there is gratitude and vis versa.
When giving feels enough it’s best to assess why it feels so!
In greater understanding, the giving flows…

Life is never stagnant
Its meant to flow
Be a giver
Giving always finds itself receiving
Life is a circle.

Begin to give

Sharing a thought provoking read I came across today.

*Die empty*

The most beautiful book to read is “Die Empty” by Todd Henry.
The author was inspired and got this idea of writing this book while attending a business meeting.
When the director asked the audience: “Where is the richest land in the world?”
One of the audience answered: “Oil-rich Gulf states.”
Another added: “Diamond mines in Africa.”
Then the director said: “No it is the cemetery. Yes, it is the richest land in the world, because millions of people have departed/died and they carried many valuable ideas that did not come to light nor benefit others. It is all in the cemetery where they are buried.”

Inspired by this answer, Todd Henry wrote his book, “Die empty” where he did his best to motivate people to pour out their ideas and potential energies in their communities and turn them into something useful before it is too late.

The most beautiful of what he said in his book is: “Do not go to your grave and carry inside you the best that you have.
*Always choose to die empty.*

The TRUE meaning of this expression, is to die empty of all the goodness that is within you. Deliver it to the world, before you leave.

If you have an idea perform it.
If you have knowledge give it out.
If you have a goal achieve it.
Love, share and distribute, do not keep it inside.

Let’s begin to give. Remove and spread every atom of goodness inside us.

Start the race.
*Die Empty*😊💐

I choose to share this because who knows how it may touch another’s life.

There is much wisdom in choosing to give out as we live life .

As we get, give_

As we gain, give

As we learn, share.
