Survivor tree

Survivors have  a uniqueness

That’s bestowed in the survival

This Hart tree is a Giant Sequoia tree.

In Redwood  Mountain Grove California 

This tree has survived the ravages of fire.

Carrying the scars in silent grace

By shaping herself this way in time.

Timely intervention

Our habits are in our hands

When we  choose to rise  and sleep

What, when  and how we eat

How much we sit or move every  day

What kind of lifestyle we lead

Every one of this is a choice we have

Our body is meant to  change in time

But our habits can make all the difference

We can cultivate wellness in our ways

We can choose to empower our mind

We can choose to live life Lovingly

We can cultivate  positive thoughts & ways

All is in the timely interventions

In our life and living.

Words of wisdom

Awareness is built in the sensing

Like how only when the feelings are felt

In the heart there is a sensing of hope.

Like how time is measured of the moments

All else is illusory and will fade away!

Care to tune inwards to sense and feel

The gift of your own life in the heartbeats

Value the preciousness of life itself

Live it Lovingly!

Love

When you love deeply

You begin to respect life

In all forms that you see

You revere the omnipresence

You wonder about abundance in awe

Your life becomes more meaningful

For there is so much more to understand

About Life in the living

You become more present in the moment

Every now has immense potential

And you begin to live than simply exist

Live life lovingly!

Change is the only constant

We are all part of change

Speak of

Changing brains and body

Changing minds and hearts

Changing needs and wants

Processing change…


Is about letting in and letting  go
There is a sense of giving and receiving
A sense of gain and a sense of  loss


In acknowledgement and acceptance
Of the course of nature
In the circle of life


Our body intelligence
Helps in evolving  the self awareness
To  be adaptive and amenable to change


For change is the only constant

Real joy!

This is a must read true incident share…

“I want to remember your face so that when I meet you in heaven, I will be able to recognise you and thank you once again.”

When Nigerian billionaire Femi Otedola in a telephone interview, was asked by the radio presenter, “Sir what can you remember made you a 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 realised 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 winning.

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 recognise 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?

How about trying to touch lives and make a positive difference in our own individual ways?.

On living life lovingly…

Life life Lovingly!

Someone asked me what advice would I share with my child…

I would simply share the below two pieces of advice that I came across, not only with my child, but to anyone who cares to follow.

As it will go a long way in the journey of life .

Two simple
formula of life

“Don’t make any
close relation
without full understanding…!

And don’t break
any close relation
with small misunderstanding..

Very thoughtfully said!

Life is beautiful in consideration & responses than kneejerk reactions.

Life is all about taking time to live and love but also to understand.

Life is precious and every relationship has a reason to be. Even if it’s just for a season it is meant to last its time.

Let’s never forget that…

So let’s value life, value relationships

And live life lovingly!!

The Simple Truth

In knowing there is within you

The power of potential

Is one thing

But in knowing  what to do with it

Is quite another

The way you choose to be

Your thoughts  to deeds

Pave the path of life

That you live through 

Every moment is a living truth 

Of the choice you choose to make

And this is the simple truth .

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.* “😂
