About the joys of being alive…

Moon splendour

“I am all aglow with happiness tonight… What is the reason you ask? Well, for one, it is a privilege to contribute to the splendour of the evening attracting your gaze to the heavens… More importantly though, I get to participate in celebrating the beauty and wonder of His creation! Look up my fellow beings, with awe and humility in your hearts, and let us all experience the joy of being alive!” – The moon in all its splendour, Parklands, Nairobi (2018)

About the secret to happiness…

Innocence in the garden

“What is happiness but the confidence and freedom to be who you truly are… the ability to express your beauty without worrying about who will notice or what they will think? If you let go your overbearing sense of self, mute out the self critical monologue inside you and instead trustfully play your wonderful part of the Natural Whole, you will experience the very essence of happiness…What do you say?” – Radiant beauty on the road, Parklands, Nairobi (2018)

About altruism…

Garden Rose

“For all those of you unwittingly mired in self-indulgence, think about me for an instant… My colour, my scent, my beauty, indeed my entire being is dedicated to the pleasure and benefit of others… I know in your world it is easy to get carried away in the virtual world of unfettered self gratification, but please take time to empathise with those around you? Particularly those with a real need of your consideration and service…” – Teary rose in the garden, Parklands, Nairobi.

About empathy and concern…

“What is it about humans that makes you want to progress at the expense of others? Do you not see that the cycle of day and night turns those who progress into the others and  others into those who progress? And after all where does all that progress leave you when your final night comes calling? Caring for the poor, the weak, the elderly is indeed caring for yourselves… since we are all essentially but one Soul! – Water, stones and sunlight caring for the fading old tree, Karura Forest, Nairobi.

About reflections and reality…

“Is it possible for the reflection to be more true than the reality? In what sense is the reality different from the reflection? Is it true that every reality in the physical realm is first created conceptually? Is the reflection therefore the precursor to the reality? If that be the case, which is the reflection and which the Reality?” – Musings of a novice, Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya

About the Abundance of His Mercy…

Hibiscus in Abundant Mercy

“He showers His Mercy on us whether we have the presence of mind to ask or not… He gives, and gives, and gives… The abundance of blessings almost makes me wilt… But, that feeling of freshness, of clean purity, brings with it a feeling of lightness like no other… They say ‘count your blessings’ but I say just bask in His abundance and don’t bother trying to fathom the Mercy of He who is beyond infinity… and yet smaller than nothing!” – Hibiscus after a rain shower in Parklands, Nairobi
