Why save bees?

Image credits Social Media

Perfect pollinators
Supporting the ecosystems
From wild flowers to food crops


For Interconnections run deep
With the plant and animal kingdom
As much as with all of life and living.

Its said, if bees become extinct as a species
We humans will cease to be, in just four years

They not only produce the nectar of life
Bees sustain the delicate balance
Of the environment of our world.

Life and 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...

When the sport turns to a dance…

When the feet move in a rhythm

All its own, in uniqueness

Artistry is acknowledged.

An Inspiring life

Friends
See, Brazil’s under 17 footbal coach Amadeu Carlos who is “just” 76 years old.
This is called Brazilian football magic…
He proves “Age is just number.”
Amazing skill, energy and stamina.

This above information is social media forward, yet when decided, I wanted to learn more about him. I found that his age is misconstrued.Yet whatever the age, age is just a number, his skill is clear to see and that’s what is beautiful to see.

Here is a (wiki ) snapshot of his life and living.

Carlos Amadeu Nascimento Lemos was a Brazilian footballer and manager who played as a left back. He represented Bahia as a player before injury curtailed his career. He went on to have a managerial career which spanned almost thirty years.

This is how he sums up his country and its relationship with their favorite sport….“In Brazil when a child is born, the first gift for him is a ball. Our relationship with football is huge. We are a footballing nation and we like that”

Dance of Nature


There is dance

In every leaf and flower

In every bud and bloom

In every twig and tree

In every turn and twist

Of nature’s creation.

There is the grace of uniqueness

Of wisdom beyond compare

All knowing, all pervading

To this Omnipresence …
I bow in Gratitude to this Grace.🙏

The way…

Love is the way

For all of us

As each of us matters

Somehow somewhere

We are all connected

In the infinite plan

And each of us

Needs to become responsible

To make a meaningful difference

For life to thrive than just survive

We need to be respectful

Towards each other

To gain the trust & faith

That makes the world

A better place to live in

For all of us

Love is the way

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.* “😂

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..

The Suitcase

The Suitcase

A man died, when he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.
– God said: Alright son its time to go.
– surprised the man responded: Now? So soon? I had a lot of plans…
– I’m sorry but its time to go.

– What do you have in that suitcase? the man asked.
– God answered: Your belongings.
– My belongings? you mean my things, my clothes, my money?
-God answered: Those things were not yours they belonged to the earth.

– Is it my memories? the man asked.
-God answered: those never belonged to you they belonged to Time

– Is it my talents?
-God answered: those were never yours they belonged to the circumstances.

– Is it my friends and family?
-God answered: I’m sorry they were never yours they belonged to the path.

– Is it my wife and son?
– God answered: They were never yours the belonged to your heart.

– Is it my body?
– God answered: that was never yours it belonged to the dust.

-Is it my soul?
God answered: No that is mine.

Full of fear, the man took the suitcase from god and opened it just to find out the suitcase was empty.
– With a tear coming down his cheek the man said: I never had anything???
-God answered: that is correct, every moment you lived were only yours. Life is just a moment. a moment that belongs to you. For this reason enjoy this time while you have it. Don’t let anything that you think you own stop you from doing so.
-Live Now
-Live your life
– Don’t forget to be happy, that is the only thing that matters.
– Material things and everything else that you fought for stay here.
-YOU CAN’T TAKE ANYTHING

Received this thoughtful share on social media with these words…

Share this reflection with anyone you love or appreciate. Enjoy every second you live.

Strength in Vulnerability

We are nature and nature is us .

We are all made of star dust.

We all have our moments in the sun.

We all have our dark moments.

Its not easy for any one of us.

We need not profess to be…

Something we are not.

We need not behave as if we know it all.

Our life is created in every now.

We can alter the way we see life.

And how we choose to live it.

Our attitude is a game changer.

If we allow ourselves to be…

We would bare the truth of our being.

Yes we may be vulnerable.

But in that very vulnerability,

We will find our inner strength.

For truth is liberating in nature.

What is the Spirit of Christmas

Spirit of Christmas is the glow of warmth enveloping us all.
No matter how the year has been
No matter how life challenges us all
The spirit of Christmas has power
To change the perspective
Of what truly matters for one & all.

There is joy of seeing in hope
There is abundance in goodwill
There is cheer of smiles and laughter
There is most of all a thanksgiving.

With an attitude of gratitude
For all that is in this now.
Spirit of Christmas is alive & kicking
In the heart of the humankind
Kindling kindness & spreading smiles.

On learning

True learning happens when we realize we are the teacher and we are the student.

And life teaches the greatest lessons without anyone uttering a word or at times, in just the sheer presence of a good soul.

In every path is a learning awaiting an awakening in the acknowledgement.

Learning is never limited

It is endless and ever regenerating itself.

Imprints

Every thought

Every word

Every deed

Has potential

To impact consciousness

To shift and alter lives

There is an imprint somewhere

That creates a change

Within us and around us.

All is a matter

Of awareness of the imprints.

Other side of Darknesss is Light

Darkness and Light are part of the same universe.
They come and go as if on contract
Light appears when the night unveils itself
Night appears when the light is overshadowed by the dark.

But in utter darkness comes the necessity of light
In burning light of the sun arises the need for cooling shade.
Both are cyclical in nature
Each a playing their part in the circle of life.
