Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.
It may seem as though with all the confusion and chaos in the world that our actions are futile, but nothing could be further from the truth! We may no be able to solve world crises single handed, but what we can do is find out what our true values are, and then act with integrity to uphold them at every turn.
We are each responsible for the world we create around us. Events occur and time and nature play their part, but how we respond to that dictates how we then either add to or detract from the situation itseIf. Do we wish to be helpful and considerate, kind and thoughtul, compassionate and empathetic, or do we wish to add fuel to the fire of anger, fear and disatisfaction?
If we consider ourselves as being as equal and important as any other, then we can take responsibilty for the role that we play in creating the experiences and environment of all others around us.
What world do we wish to create?
Can we act in ways that make that world become more possible?
How do we be the person that we would like to meet in the world?
All the little choices that add to the positivity and value of anothers experience also add to the satisfaction and worth of our own lives.
What is there to lose?
Be kind and make choices based on love, and your impact on the world will make it a kinder and more loving place. This is the power we all possess. Let us choose to use it.
