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

About lofty goals…

“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 true beauty… exposed…

“Usually we make a great show of our meagre virtues… No opportunity is allowed to pass in making ourselves look good… Yet true beauty does not need all that pomp and effort! True beauty, when exposed to the world, is simple yet soul nourishing, unassuming but adorable, modest and yet full of colour…” – Bougainvillea seen through a palm leaves curtain, Albion, Mauritius
