On Love & Inclusion

A poignant tale of a little child sensing the favoritism by her own father was shared by my friend Ali Anani in his post….

https://www.linkedin.com/posts/ali-anani-phd-15305319_love-experience-empathy-activity-6970262610063589376-9Fbe?utm_source=share&utm_medium=member_desktop

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.

And yet…
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.

Wisdom in humility

The soul knows the truths…
Yet the spirit is untamed.
To understand the wisdom.
It is important  to create space
To allow learning to take place.


Humility is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
Invoking wisdom in humility

The Divine Plan

If ever there is a shred of doubt

Of how life will pan out

How things will be

Or what will eventually happen

Just know…

The source coder has the divine  plan all figured out.

In trust & faith, in grace and in goodwill there is synchrony of the synergies.

And therein is the bliss in the bless.

There comes a time

The river of time is ever flowing

Where are you in this now?

Are you adrift for a reason or flowing along in purpose?

Are you sensing there is more

For you to do before you arrive

Where you want to go…

Are you feeling you are rushed

Carried through without a say

Or are you fighting alone

And wishing for some support and strength

Know wherever you are in this journey

You are meant to be and do

All that you deeply intend

For the river courses through

And finds its way to the sea…

Trust time to deliver all I’m good time

Trust yourself along the way

For you are not only in the flow

You are the flow

Wisdom from Children

Question is then how to be enthused,
Into doing the same tasks differently?
And break free from rut of routine.
Yet make this day great!
Very simple…
Stay hopeful, see life’s potential
Create the possibilities
It’s all in the way of envisioning
How you want to build your life
It’s all up to you!

Patience waits…

Wisdom of Patience

Patience awaits
In faith and belief
Patience is understanding
For patience hones itself
For the suitable moments.

Patience is non-judgmental
Patience bears the burden
Of the moments
Knowing the power of time.
Patience is resilience in action
Patience is strength of the spirit
Patience speaks volumes of the soul
Without a word or deed.
Such is the wisdom of Patience

For much is resolved in patience.
A true Companion for Wisdom is Patience and a lot of life’s so called situations which need solutions can be resolved by thinking differently !

Ability to cultivate patience is an art…

To know all happens for a reason.

Visual Verses

A picture that is open to so many interesting interpretations…

Is this a stairway to heaven
The path that sets you free
Steps that lead the way
To the light of eternal truth

Your life is given to you
A knowing is bestowed upon you
In hope that you will seek
And find the truth of your being.
All answers are within you
To sense and understand
Life is both hell and heaven if you wish.
All it needs is a stairway to the within.

Friend… such a beautiful word!
I loved this particular space at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Belgium and felt so much at home there. Although it meant become a friend of the museum…the fact was, there was so much positive energy simply being in it.

Be a friend reach out to care
Be inclusive and expansive
Our world needs more of it.
Care to open your heart and share
Express your hopes and aspirations
Love life enough to live it lovingly!

Connecting Dots

A child has the propensity

To connect the distant dots

In encouragement and support

A child’s curiousity is sparked

To embrace the yet known .


Children are creative innately and their childish curiosity often opens up the spaces yet unexplained and quite unexpectedly so. 

Speaking of a child’s imagination and an adult’s ability to retain a childlike mindset, it boosts the creative thinking with fresh and unbiased perspectives. Much is in the way we perceive the arising patterns.

Complex problems are also known to be solved with this kind of approach. In the very ability to allow the self to let go, one’s vision broadens.


Old school methods of education often restricted the divergent expansion of creativity so as to structure its flow to converge in rigidity.  But applying this agile & flexible approach can be an enriching experience for the mind and body. 


In allowing ourselves spaces for our thoughts to self pattern in free play, acknowledging open-ended questions, of what if, how, why so and dare to dream fearlessly, andwonder, we might discover a pattern that connects the unfamiliar or yet seemingly distant dots.

A child like enthusiasm

Awe and wonder

Curiosity coupled with imagination

That knows no bounds

Could perhaps be a great creative approach

To solve complex problems.

For ultimately it is a matter of connecting the dots.

Trust you.

I read these two lines by Stan Smith today…

Experience tells you what to do
Confidence allows  you to do it .

Will also add…

And patience paves the path.
For all that you need
Will reveal itself in time.
Trust yourself to deliver.

Sharing my photo of a beautiful bloom from my garden…for who better than a flower to express this truth of life.

Think well & trust you.

On dreams

Your dreams holds the key to your purpose …dare to live it !

Yet often dreams hold a vision

To some part of your life

Dreams speak to you

When you least expect it to

Do you have dreams that are vivid

That you just can’t forget

Maybe there is a reason

For it to be so , perhaps there is a learning

For you to understand more.

Have you had times where dreams have conveyed the truths which you perhaps know but have not acknowledged.

Dreams interpretation has more to say beyond the obvious.

Yet personally I have found my own interpretation for some of my vivid dreams

An in the knowing is the healing.

Paradox of Power

Beyond the glitter and glory

Power has a parodoxical equation.

Power can be constructive and yet corruptive.

Those with the power know only too well…


Uneasy lies the head that wears the Crown
Tentacles of power
Seeping from within,
Surging of the webbed grasp
The unnerving truth of rigidity
The vicelike grip of conformity
The stronghold of absolute authority
The merciless and binding royalty.
Expectations of undivided loyalty.
The Crown bears the burden
Often silently withholding  expressions.

The choice rests with the wearer of the crown 👑

Yet …

When passion drives the power with a larger purpose beyond self in perseverance and patience

Power becomes a priceless responsibility

Such is the paradox of power

How?

This caption caught my eye. Sharing my thoughts…

Agreed finding the self is the key

In every moment of living.

For living it purposefully.

Yet the question remains…

How?

To find yourself

And be alive to life in every now.

Simply be

Be present to the moment

Give it your full attention

Acknowledge what is in this now

Be open to possibilities

Allow space to accept

What is.

Know what is, is not all.

There is much potential in you

That is awaiting your awareness

Breathe in hope and let fear go

This way you consciously create

Space to grow.

To allow perspectives

To be inspired

To aspire in hope…

And be all that you can be.

Any other answers?

Do share your thoughts.
