Let’s…

Every one of us can make a positive difference from where we are…

If we are alive...

Let’s make an effort to change the world

And create goodwill in every step.

Here is a poem I wrote a few years ago …

If we must seek…

Let’s Seek Connectedness,

If we must awaken…

Let’s Awaken the Spirit of Being

If we must move

Let’s Move with Empathy in Action

If we must choose

Let’s Choose the Simplicity of Authenticity

If we must rest…

Let’s Rest with Contentment

If we must pursue…

Let’s Pursue Thankfulness in Gratitude

If we must strive…

Let’s Strive for Patience and Tolerance

If we must fight…

Let’s Fight Apathy and Ignorance

If we must reach …

Let’s Reach out with Kindness

If we must become…

Let’s Become a Better version of Us!

The Best of You

The way you live this now you have

Is beyond how life treats you

Trust the possibilities in this now

Let go of the unnecessary doubts

Trust in your reason to be

Trust your intentions keep the faith

Life is a reflection of perceptions

And self beliefs manifests hope within.

Keep being the best version of you

Because you truly can!

On Empathy

Life Skills: Empathy Education


Life with all its complexities and contrasts creates a necessity to chalk out ways to make young impressionable minds better equipped to handle its exigencies. Holistic education is so much about grounding in connectedness as much as it is about intuitive understanding that, harmony in the mind body connection is a way of life and living.

An education in empathic behavior becomes paramount in a materialistic world. A lot of misconception about empathy needs clarification.

Empathy is seeing with another, listening to another acknowledging them as they are, in a nonjudgmental space and being with another sensing the feelings and caring to reach out with support through words action and deeds …

Empathy can be sensed in a touch a nod or a smile or in the simplicity of silence, doing nothing but just being there ….

Empathy is a sharing, a feeling, a bonding, a being, a seeing, a sensing, a trusting and believing in hope, in faith, in life and grace.

Empathy is about caring, as a way of being. Empathy is not always about bearing the suffering and sensing another’s pain or being in a state of sorrow or pain. There can arise great empathy when dancing together or in a classroom environment where the teacher feels one with the student’s frame of mind and speaks to address that … or hearing or performing a song or play together with unbridled sense of bonding and enthusiasm. This empathy can be reflected time and time again in striving to consciously stay aware of the mutually creative fulfillment it brings to our lives. Positive benefits of empathy can become a mirror to gradually inducing greater empathic behavior in our lives towards ourselves and others.

Our movements have the power to change our moods, as much as our thoughts can bring a change in our way of being. It doesn’t matter who believes in your empathic way of life, what matters is you believe in it yourself. And that is the first step in making a positive difference. When there is an empathy in action, it is mirrored in our minds to create, generate loving and caring thoughts as a response to the action.

Every empathic thought finds its way into expression thoughts words or deeds creatively. With increasing empathic thought and action there is unknowingly a connectedness, valuing the interdependence in this web of life and living as a way of being.

On Giving

Give with all of your heart 

 whenever and wherever you can 

Because you truly can.

Receive by expressing the value 

In  heartfelt appreciation

 of what you have got 

Because it truly matters.

 For then in the giving and receiving 

 Is established a full circle 

of a contented connection.

And that will pave the path of grace

For more to follow along.

When you give heartfully, forget about it.When you receive gratefully, remember it.  Savvy


Give generously without any expectation.

Receive generously in true appreciation.

Both are the core of human nature in action.

And all is well in the circle of interconnection.

Every Now Matters

Every now well lived

Paves the way for more.

Every moment is a juggle

Between past and the future

The challenge is the experience

Or the expectations of it.

It’s a little slice of our life

We hold in this now

Let’s choose to make the best

Of the moment at hand.

All is well.

We are living  in a world  rushed for time. People hurry and scurry through the day.

What we see in others is a part of us too reflected through them, when we are accepting of that part and able to respect it just as much as ourselves , we create all that we need to see at that moment .

Some very basic humane abilities are necessary in our journey in life.

To listen to understand, to connect, to acknowledge, to emphasize, to sense gratitude, to share happiness, and care for another as much as for ourselves.

Much of the world’s issues may find solace & resolutions in simply caring  to be present in the moment.

In these abilities lies the truth of nature in its magnanimity and abundance in every moment.

And All is truly well.

On Worth

Being rich is living life exploring and discovering all your possibilities of your potential

Being rich is being able to realize the potential of you.

Being rich is being ready to sense the abundance that is.

Money is not necessarily the only factor for your worth.

Your worth is being all that you are.

You are rich in knowing your worth.

Be enriched in health wealth & prosperity but most of all be rich in the heart and mind.

In realization of the contentment of what you have, you are truly rich!

Thrive

Life can never thrive in suppression

Or in denial and disapproval.

Or control and criticism

Choose to appreciate and approve.

Let go of the nagging and niggles.

Let go of judgements, fear and worry

Life is in each of us just the same.

Nurture life to live.

Engage with it lovingly

Life can be beautiful!

Live and let live.

Life & Living

Whenever I come across a heart touching action, or a prose ,a poem or quote I will be sharing it here in this series…

Some people make the world a better place by their thoughts words and deeds...

Sharing a touching story of truths of life and living…

THE HAPPIEST MAN

When Billionaire Femi Otedola in a telephone interview, was asked by the radio presenter, “Sir what can you remember made you the happiest man in life?”

Femi said: “I have gone through four stages of happiness in life and finally I understood the meaning of true happiness.”

The first stage was to accumulate wealth and means. But at this stage I did not get the happiness I wanted.

Then came the second stage of collecting valuables and items. But I realized that the effect of this thing is also temporary and the lustre of valuable things does not last long.

Then came the third stage of getting big projects. That was when I was holding 95% of diesel supply in Nigeria and Africa. I was also the largest vessel owner in Africa and Asia. But even here I did not get the happiness I had imagined.

The fourth stage was the time a friend of mine asked me to buy wheelchair for some disabled children. Just about 200 kids.

At the friend’s request, I immediately bought the wheelchairs. But the friend insisted that I go with him and hand over the wheelchairs to the children. I got ready and went with him.

There I gave these wheel chairs to these children with my own hands. I saw the strange glow of happiness on the faces of these children. I saw them all sitting on the wheelchairs, moving around and having fun.

It was as if they had arrived at a picnic spot where they are sharing a jackpot wining.

I felt real joy inside me. When I decided to leave one of the kids grabbed my legs. I tried to free my legs gently but the child stared at my face and held my legs tightly. I bent down and asked the child: Do you need something else?

The answer this child gave me not only made me happy but also changed my attitude to life completely. This child said: “I want to remember your face so that when I meet you in heaven, I will be able to recognize you and thank you once again”.

What would you be remembered for after you leave that office or place?

Will anyone desire to see your face again where it all matters?

Think! Live your life in a manner that others desire to see your face again.
