Value of Values

A beautiful story share that tugs your heartstrings.

Remember Kenyan runner Abel Mutai who was just a few feet from the finish line, but became confused with the signage and stopped, thinking he had completed the race. Spanish runner, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was happening, started shouting at the Kenyan to continue running. Mutai didn’t know Spanish and didn’t understand. Realizing what was taking place, Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory.

A journalist asked Ivan, “Why did you do that?” Ivan replied, “My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life where we push and help each other to win.”
The journalist insisted “But why did you let the Kenyan win?” Ivan replied, “I didn’t let him win, he was going to win. The race was his.” The journalist insisted, and again asked, “But you could have won!” Ivan looked at him and replied, “But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honor in that medal?
What would my Mother think of that?”

Values are passed on from generation to generation.

WAVES OF CHANGES

In deepest turmoil

In utter confusion

Comes a breakthrough

Paving a new beginning.

Question is how patient are we?

To be ready to wait

To be tested time and time again

And how perseverant are we?

To know the rising waves are transient

All is a matter of time

Through the darkness shines a light

Rays of hope, happen to arrive.

Traveling along…

Sharing a story that came my way on Social Media.

I am Travelling with you !

Every year Parents took their son to his Grandmother’s House for the Summer Break, and they would return Home in train after Two Weeks.

One Day the Boy tells
his Parents:
′′ I’m Grown Up now,
What if I go to Grandma’s House alone this Year ???”

After a Brief Discussion
Parents agree.

They were standing on the Railway Station, seeing him off,
Giving him Last Instruction through the Window,

As Boy continues to repeat:
′′ I know, you’ve already told me so many times…!”
Train is about to leave and Father whispers:
′ My Son,
If you suddenly feel Bad or Scared, this is for you !…… ′
And he slips something into his Pocket.

Now the Boy was all alone, sitting on the Train, without his Parents,
for the First Time…

He looks at the Scenery through the Window.
Around him Strangers Hustle, make Noise, Enter and Exit
the Compartment,
He gets that Feeling that he was alone..
A person even gives him a
Scary look…
The Boy felt uncomfortable…
And now he was frightened also.
He lowered his head, snuggled in a corner of the Seat,
tears rose to his Eyes.

At that Point he remembered his Father putting something in his pocket.
With a trembling hand he groped this piece of paper, and he opened it,
Son, “Don’t Worry,”
I am in the Next Compartment…

*Truth* :

This is How it is in Life…
When God has sent us in this World, all by ourselves,
HE has also slipped a note in our pocket,

*God Says:*
I am Travelling with you,
I am within your reach !
Call on Me…❗

One World

The world is beyond what we assume

There are no labels on earth

There are no maps drawn

All that we believe is what we have created for ourselves

We may have different names

We may create different countries

We may call ourselves citizens of one land

But earth knows or cares not of your distinctions of race gender or creed

It knows not rich or poor

Nature knows not class or caste

Wonder what are we so set about ?

What makes us so full of opinions?

In fact if we only could see and a acknowledge

The earth in all its beauty

There are different seasons in different places

Yet our world is not about differences

For under the sky and sun

We are one, life is vulnerable and beautiful in all its unique ways.

When we care to see diversity as a strength

We would be more caring of our mother earth.

And we would see our earth as one and only world we have.

A Perspective of Advocacy

A mind-boggling perspective on Advocacy came my way !! 🙂

College Student Group asked a lawyer
*So what does ‘advocacy’ mean?”*

Lawyer said:
*I will present an example for this!*

*Suppose two people come to me, one is very clean and the other is very dirty. I advise both of them to get clean and take bath.*

*Now you guys tell me, who among them will take a shower ?? “*

One student said: *”The one who is dirty will take a shower.”*

The lawyer said:

*No, but the clean person will do it, because he has the habit of bathing, while the dirty does not know the importance of cleaning*

*Lawyer :: Now tell who will take a shower ?? “*

The second student said: *Clean person*

The lawyer said:
*No, but the dirty person will take a bath because he is the one who needs cleaning.*

*Now tell who will take a shower ?? “*

Two students said: *”The one who is dirty will take a shower.”*

The lawyer said:
*”No, but both will take a bath because the clean person has a habit of bathing, while the dirty one needs a bath.*

*Now tell who will take a shower ?? “*

Now three students speak together: *”Both of them will take a shower.”*

The lawyer said:
*”Wrong, no one will take a bath, because dirty is not used to bathing, whereas clean one does not need to bathe*

*Now tell who will take a shower ?? “*

A student politely said:
*”You give a different answer every time and every answer seems to be correct. How do we know the correct answer ???”*

Lawyer said:
*This is just ‘advocacy’! It is not important what the reality is*
*The important thing is, how many possible arguments can you offer to prove your point.* “😂

An Expression Of Manifestation.

Image credits: Fb Group Unique Trees

Saw this photo on a Fb group share and I couldn’t help pause and wonder about this expression in manifestation.

How beautifully it has orchestrated its creation

How artfully the artistry of photography has captured this brilliance of creation.

Every where we see nature emotes in magnificent awe-inspiring ways, the wonders of creation… in the trees, be it in a little leaf , a bud, in aging bark & trunk of trees , in the cloud paintings up above in the canvas of the sky or even in the dance of the waves in the sea…🙏

One moment to the next

To stay centered in equanimity

Is to be aware of the self in this now

Are we present in the moment?

Are we staying calm to understand

Change is the only constant…

The so called high tides, give in only to recede in time.

The dunes speak of sifting sands of time

Where there were mountains there are plains today…

What seems impossible becomes possible in time.

All is meant to move on

Problems well they come and go

Nothing lasts forever

That is why life is so precious

And every moment must be well lived.

From one moment to next!

Waking Up To A New Day!

We are the thoughts we think,

We become believers of our ways

What we do today has always a reason.

But every dawn is full of hope

Awaken to sense its brightness

Care and accept the vividity

Allow space for light to enter.

Much changes in doing the above..

Wake up grateful for this new day!

Wake up hopeful of this new day!

Inks of Hope

In your deepest turmoil

Writing becomes a let out

Words sensed and inked

Can bring balance to living

Such is the power of writing.

When life and living

Leaves scars behind

The pen colours life with hope.

With freshness of perspective

Hope inks itself into existence

And life goes on..

Finding the good…

These are certainly abilities worth cultivating :))

Ability to see the good is a great habit to cultivate

Ability to respect the people for who they are.

Ability to work with diversity of thoughts

Ability to coexist in peace and harmony.

Ability to generate goodwill whenever we can.

Ability to make light of things

Ability to dance in the rain

As much as in the lightness of being.

Learnings in Life.

I loved these lines …

On learning in life.

Life is blessed

In valuing the gifts we have,

In cultivation of skills we are enriched

And life is transformed in the choices we make.

Life is full of infinite learnings

Endless opportunities and possibilities …

Life is how we make it!
