Yesterday I realized, with a lot help from the animals, that I did not mention them in my post on the 25th. They reminded me how our upsets affect them and how vulnerable they are. I have written about this in past posts.
In the post on the 25th when I said “And how I am does have an effect on everything around me.” I should have mentioned animals specifically in the everything.
Me remembering I do affect the animals around me, with how I am, will help me to be more aware of what I am doing right now. It makes it less general and more real and closer to me. It is not something out there, it is right here.
I am glad they brought this to my attention as it is important and I feel very foolish for forgetting to include them. Maybe it is better this way as they get there own post.
They remind me frequently what a stupid human I am. With them riding herd on me I don’t have to worry about getting a big head. Thanks guys.
For weeks there has been so much rolling around in my head, I could not figure out where to start, what to write. So that is why it has been awhile since I have written.
To say the least it is a wild ride right now. I have asked myself did I really sign up for this? Yeah I did. If I am learning anything, it is I am responsible for my life. Which means my thoughts, actions, and what comes out of my mouth.
What does that have to do with what is going on?
I am blessed I get to talk to people from all over the country. What I am hearing is quite a bit of upset. I listen. Then I share the decisions I am making.
I asked myself the question, can I change what happened in the big picture? No I can’t. If I can’t affect the big picture where does that leave me? It leaves me with the responsibility of choosing how I respond to what happened. I realized if I choose to be upset then I am putting a negative vibration into the collective. Does that help anything? No.
I can only make choices for myself and those choices have an effect on the rest of the world. My being upset puts a negative out. My being calm, peaceful is a positive out. I am learning it is that simple. In each moment I get to choose how I am. And how I am does have an effect on everything around me and beyond.
Throw a pebble onto the surface of a calm pond and ripples flow out from where the pebble went in. That’s me. I create ripples with how I am. Those ripples go out and touch everything around me
I believe the Divine knows what it is doing. If I take my attention off the big picture and place it on my picture, that is the best I can do. I am doing my part. The rest is out of my control. Thank God. It is so simple when I allow me to Be.
