A Perspective of Advocacy

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

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.* “ūüėā

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…ūüôŹ

Already there…

Who is there when there is no one to turn to?

Who is there to bear it all?

Who is there to help you back on track?

Who is your trustworthy ally ?

Its you and only you.

Truly …

Everything you need is already inside you!

This one line is a wonderful boost to bring an awareness back of the strength within us all.

Wouldn’t you agree?

Waves of change.

In the journey with time
Lifes toughest battles
Always find a way.
Life goes on no matter
Paving the path
To find solutions
Along the way.

The wisdom of resilience
Is to acknowledge
The circle of life
Remember the challenges
Always surface a solution
Underneath the giant shadow of trees
Mushrooms possibilities of hope.

In difficult moments
Think of life
As ocean waves
Waltzing with the tides
Highs and lows
Are both part of the flow
Think of yourself
Realize you are
Not just in the flow
You are the flow

Sense the surge
Of empowerment
Flooding through you
In this very thought
You have it all within you
To steer through
The troubled waters
To bridge through the gaps
And find a way.

To rise above
The tumultuous waves
Always know
There is hope
In the horizon across
Light shines
Beyond the darkest night.
Change is the only constant
Like night and day
Nature shows the way.

Tumbling down
Is temporary
Flipping over
Is a fraction of a moment.
Eventually leading
To new beginning
In hope and trust.
All is in flux
Course through
Sail through the waves
With a heart full of hope.

Crossing the Culture Threshold!



There is great power in words…
To  charm another,influence or drive a point home.

Engagement online can turn better on bitter in a split second.

It is all in the choice of words used to convey a message.
For there is much influence the words….such is the power of words.
 

Sometimes knowingly or otherwise  the way we express  or communicate   to another  by the words we may use may bring a chasm than  create a bridge.


Sometimes when we see another life, as beautiful and cant curb the need to express it away, we often get caught up in our own words and unknowingly end up …

Crossing the Culture Threshold!

What to one might be just a poetic expression

To another might be a glitch of discretion.

Express if one must

Feel free to feel the way you feel is the way to feel

But only as long as anothers peace you don’t unknowingly steal.

For at times in the surging words of emotion…

Arises unnecessary stress and discomfort.

Better to know the pause in the space between our steps

And value your edges in every move.

For in every positive step in discretion

There is simply the strength of trust without mention.

When I penned these lines they were¬†specifically for driving the message home gently that¬†no one can tread on another’s emotional space without permission¬†especially online using the power and persuasion of words…


True respect for another being can simply be about letting others be.

A Cup Of Cheer

Someone the other day asked me, are you a coffee or tea person.

I wonder…

All my life so far, have never been a coffee or tea person.
But of late I am sensing what a cup of steaming hot goodness can do for my spirit.

It’s not a tea or coffee that I want,
Its a cup of cheer, that soothes me and rejuvenates me .
Sure its not a habit so far , but it certainly good to pause every once in a while and take a sip and sense the world a little bit more in time.

My favorites …

I love the plain old ginger lemon & honey tea. Or even like a herb/ spice infused cinammon tea!

As for coffee very rarely, I enjoy the aroma of filtered South Indian coffee.

But the reason I drink a cup of goodness and what I would want most is…

Something that warms my heart
Something that sweetens my thoughts
Something that allows me to pause
To rest a while to gather my self.

What about you?
Are you a coffee or tea person?
Do you need it as your morning wake me up?
Do you have a craving for tea or coffee?
Do share if you are fond of coffee or tea & why?

On Awareness


Awareness happens in evolution
In coherence  of the changes
In the circle of life and living
All is in a constant flux of changes

In Awareness is the  acknowledgement
Of all that is was and will be
As it seems, appears and may seem to appear or present  itself

The plan is simple
Allow Awareness to flow
Embody in acknowledgement.
In acceptance  in accordance
In consciousness of connection
That manifest itself 
In the evolutionary plan.


Awareness may seem sporadic or even momentary
But truly it is building itself in time
Connecting dots in the pathway
Beyond indifference towards coherence of the interconnects.
 
What is, is not all
There is always more in hope
That can manifests in time.
All that is needed is patience
And perseverance
While imbibing in awareness.

Live Love Laugh!

In Laughter is the shedding

Of the spurious

A cleansing of the hearts

A bridging of joys in this now!

In laughter is the clearing

Of the burdens

A lightness of being

A healing of the spirits

For Laughter makes you sense

The happiness of this now!

Laugh a little more everyday!

A Grateful Heart

Its good to never let the things you want ,

Make you forget the things you have.

Circles of Energy

Every soul emits the energy
Of the wisdom of times
Lived living and in between
Myriad reflections of mind
Consciousness of the heart
And in character of the being

Embodiment of the ego in its essence
Humbled by life time and time again

Until the ancient soul find its own path
Of balancing witness and action.
Sensing the truth of its own being.

As the leaf leaves…

Sharing the poignant yet profound wisdom of these words…

*Autumn Leaf*

I asked the leaf if it was frightened because it was autumn and the other leaves were falling.

The leaf answered, “No. During the whole spring and summer I was completely alive. I worked hard to help nourish the tree, and now much of me is in the tree.

I am not limited by this form. I am also the whole tree, and when I go back to the soil, I will continue to nourish the tree. So I don’t worry at all.

As I leave this branch and float to the ground, I will wave to the tree and tell her, ‘I will see you again very soon’.”

That day a wind came blowing, and a while later, I saw the leaf leave the branch and float down to the soil, dancing joyfully, because as it floated it saw itself already there in the tree.

It was so happy. I bowed my head, knowing that I have a lot to learn from the leaf.

Feeling Good?


At times life takes you places,

That leaves you in a space of a little ambiguity

Where your senses are overwhelmed

And you may feel awe…

The place may speak to you

In a language that you can decipher.


Ask yourself…

Are you feeling lost, yet free?

Are you feeling free and light?

Are you sensing good vibes?

Of being in the right space?

Are you feeling  you are aligned

To the energies of this place

Are you emitting  goodwill

And sensing potency of the now?

Then you are most certainly

In the right path and direction

Yes, you are in a good place.

On Allowance



The ability to discern and allow

Has a great significance

On your state of being

You are what you think and consume.

Ultimately you are entrusted

With this power of choice.

You are your own decision maker

So choose to allow yourself to evolve.

Think well and be expansive

As much as inclusive

For it steers and transforms your ways

Choose thoughts of peace & harmony.


Allow yourself to live life lovingly

Your will your way of life

Your life, your choice of living

Let love and peace show the pathway.
