About a conference of the birds…

conference of birds

“Who amongst us has the courage and piety to fly out in search of our King? Let us not make excuses… the world, full of temptation and mirages, has nothing of interest for us! We must overpower our egos and humble ourselves into nothing so that we can become everything… for our King is He who is in all of us! Let us be on our way…” – at the Flic en Flac beach, Mauritius

About lofty goals…

cradling the moon

“Who can claim to be in the pink of their health? Who can claim to be the adornment of stems and prettier than flowers? Who can claim to cradle the moon? Who can claim to enhance the colour of the sky? And why ever not? We may be a small collection of bracts in the entire creation but we are all of Him and to Him shall we return…” – Bougainvillea bracts at the garden of Residence Beau Soleil, Albion, Mauritius

About spiritual bounty…

Golden boats

“When the Guiding Light falls on me, my humble, weather-beaten, steely base is transformed… All of a sudden, due entirely to His Benevolence, I am bathed in Golden Light… All around me there is only the dance of His Glory… Oh, what delightfully reverent ecstasy!!” – At Port Louis Harbour, Mauritius

About harmonious interaction…

“These days when you talk, text or write to each other, do you communicate? When you are silent with each other, is there harmony or angst? Do you encourage a free flow of ideas devoid of your ego? Is it all about you and your agenda? Stop! Notice how we interact… He has his blue fluidity, strength and beauty… my green arms wave to the sky… I salute his virtues and he applauds mine… neither of us loses face when we interact but rather we create a picture of harmony, right? – Palm trees overlooking Caudan Waterfront and Port Louis harbour, Mauritius

About the innocence of love…

Innocent Lantana

“It is supposed to be simple… It is supposed to be beautiful… It is supposed to be innocent… Yet, that heart-warming feeling of love is only forever in the destiny of those who have the courage and patience to navigate through its intricate lattice of petals… That’s the irony and lesson of life!” – Lantana flower, Garden at Residence Beau Soleil, Albion, Mauritius

About piety…

“I come with nothing… I am nothing in the splendour of your being… I come to you battle-scarred, my experiences over the years adding a rusty dullness to my devotion… Any prayer I can offer pales in the face of your radiance… You are the source of all virtue so I am ashamed to draw your attention to my feeble attempts… All I can pray for is that you will keep me afloat and that when the time comes, you will embrace me and allow me to be a glorious nothing in the ocean of your abundance…” – At the Port Louis Harbour, Mauritius
