Our society would love for you to believe that you do not matter and that nothing you do can make a difference. We have been conditioned to believe that our actions do not create change. That could not be farther from the truth. You CAN make a difference. In fact, there are many people that have single handedly started change that rippled throughout all of humanity. Some created change through their words, others through their actions.
We can get stuck in a place of stagnation…never moving, never changing. That is a very sad and unhealthy place to be. When we see things going on in the world around us, we may feel very insignificant. KNOW that you ARE significant. KNOW that you CAN make a difference. KNOW that you are here for a specific reason.
The words to this song are so very powerful. It still has the same impact it did almost 30 years ago. My favorite line of this song….A change can only come when we stand together as ONE. We ARE the world!!! The power of ONE!!! We are all CONNECTED!!!
In this time, in this place, we have incarnated to BE the change we want to see. We are called into action on a spiritual level. Find YOUR special gifts. Make your contribution to humanity. The time is NOW! You are being called into action. Discover or uncover your gifts and share them with the world. No matter how big or how small, you CAN make a difference!!!
Here are a few tools and books to reawaken you to the reality that we are all connected
“I honor the place in you
where the entire Universe resides.
I honor the place
of love, of light, of truth, of peace.
I honor the place within you where
if you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
there is only one of us.”
On the meaning of the word ‘Namaste’
“Hold fast to one principle and all the others are identical. On seeing one thing, you see all things. On perceiving an individual’s mind, you perceive all mind. Glimpse one truth, and all truth is present in your vision, for there is nowhere at all that is devoid of the Truth. When you see a grain of sand, you see all possible worlds,… with all their vast rivers and mountains. When you see a drop of water, you see the nature of all the waters of the universe.” ~Huangbo Xiyun
“He who experiences the UNITY OF LIFE sees his own Self in all beings, and all beings in his own Self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye.” ~Buddha
“A person experiences life as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. Our task must be to free ourselves from this self-imposed prison, and through compassion, to find the reality of Oneness.” ~Albert Einstein
“Consider your own place in the universal oneness of which we are all a part, from which we all arise, and to which we all return.” ~ David Fontana
