The Smallest Things In Life
They can make a world of difference. In relation to the rest of the surroundings, these flowering plants are minuscule. But the colors that they provide to the green backdrop of broad leaf plants are stunning. I find that it is like being in a crowded room where there is some excitement or even tension and you look across the room at someone who happens to be looking back at you and that person smiles. It is moments like these that create bonds between individuals. It is a bridging across deep emotional waters.
When we allow ourselves to be friendly and kind, we create, or should I say "Co-create" an environment of love and trust. Gradually this will ripple out from one person, to two, to four and so on until the entire home, community, country and world can benefit from the love and trust. I truly believe that this is the only way in which we can affect the state of the world. We begin at home every day and take a vow that we will walk in beauty and in trust. We will pay attention to the signals around us and thus avoid harm, but we can still trust ourselves and others along the way. Basically, we have to make a decision as to which it is that we choose to believe and act upon: that the world is a dangerous place or that the world is a friendly place. Which decision we make will determine which energy we support and promote, intentionally or unintentionally.
