📝 A little journal entry for 25 March, 2017:
"You are the force that makes the flowers open and close, that makes the hummingbird fly from flower to flower. You are in every tree, you are in every animal, vegetable, and rock." 🌏 ~Don Miguel Ruiz
This quote is so beautiful to me, as I strongly believe that we're all connected to the greater consciousness which affects every hope, fear, choice, action and dream on earth. So our aim then is not to control others' choices, prove them wrong or prove ourselves right, which only serves the ego. Our aim is to act from the higher intelligence within ourselves, which in turn helps to awaken it in others. This is like curing the disease rather than merely treating symptoms.
It seems to me that our world is in need of a shift in consciousness, a reminder that we are all part of one whole. There's no "us vs them" in reality. We can all choose, in any given moment, whether to act from the higher intelligence within ourselves, or to act from the ego and its vices--our "illusory sense of self." So my reminder to myself is to make agreements with my real nature, which is perfect love, wishing all good things for all beings, making choices that help rather than harm. This influences how I use my time, what I spend money on, the things I give my attention to, and even what I choose to eat. 🌱Because when I breathe love and light out to the world, I am also helping myself. I understand that this is a continuous process and I will never be perfect--and that's ok--but I can always choose to do my best. 💙
