A poignant tale of a little child sensing the favoritism by her own father was shared by my friend Ali Anani in his post….
Here are my reflections on this post… which I had initially shared with him privately but then realized that perhaps it needs to be read and understood in the larger context of the trials and tribulations in life and living..
Truth has a way of baring open the wounds of the heart and mind on its path of healing the hurt.
For truth is on its own path of self correction in this world.
For unfairness and
Injustice has to somedayfind justice
Exclusion to inclusion
Doubts to clarity.
When truth speaks
In one way or another
It is important to listen
In empathy without judgements
Truth speaks as it is
In all of innocence
Or in wisdom of awareness.
Innocence can be daunting to handle . But addressing the truth one way or the other
Leads to discoveries of how little we know or of what is sensed & perceived.
In the story that my friend shared…here are instances of lack of inclusion in a family
Where in one day there is marked difference in the way the father speaks,
When the child says
Why are you speaking to me…
Interesting to note that you perceived the young child as witty
Whereas another may perceive it as defiance,or even an evidence of an awareness of lack of inclusion and discrimination at this household in the young child’s mind.
And that she is voicing it in all of innocence.
What would be of significance is how the father addresses this brewing disconnect.
Lack of love can be a difficult phase at any age especially for a child.
Let’s trust the universe to show the way for this child to receive what she is yearning for one way or another.
May every life be able to sense love and live life lovingly.

I find this striking at my awareness.
Being new to the introspection needed to find a better reality
you reminded me – it is a journey
Not a destination
The seances do flare when the fires of life prevail
Yet we can only from a distance perceive its truth
As I am stirred within, so must I act
For the manifestation of such
Becomes the framework
For what I see and think
