You Matter, You Are Apart of the Whole and That Means Responsibility
Today I just want to take a moment to remind you that YOU matter. That even though you may feel small, you are so much more than you can imagine. All of us are here for a reason, for a divine purpose, because we wouldn't be here if not. Every being on Earth serves a purpose:
“Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we're so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.” ~ Ram Dass
Knowing that we affect the world with every action and thought gives birth to a deeper responsibility. When Ram Dass mentions working on our own conciousness is the most important thing to do, it really is. Because when we truly know and feel in our bones how much apart of the world we really are, we need to become aware of how we can make our imprint and impact a loving one, a healing one, one that opens others up to the fact that they too, are majorly APART of this world, and that their life matters too.
"The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.
It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves
of leaves and flowers.
It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and of death,
in ebb and in flow.
I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood
this moment." ~Rabindranath Tagore
You matter. Self love is world love. Self love is loving others. Loving others is self love. When we remember our interconnectedness with all of life around us it's easier to let our minor "problems" go. Everything we spend so much time worrying about begins to seem so small when we remember the deep sacredness, and vastness of the beauty of life, which is always available to us. Remembering that WE are the beauty too. I hope today you take a moment and remind yourself how much you matter, how much apart of life you truly are, and that your unique expression is more beautiful than any words could ever do justice for. Believe it too. You're here, that's enough proof. The more we believe in our beauty, that more it radiates. The more we give ourselves permission to BE the sacred piece of art we were born as, the more that beauty is seen.
I felt inspired to share a song with you on this beautiful Friday the 13th. If you have the chance, sit down with this song, and still the mind, with the intention of remembering your beauty, with remembering how apart of the world YOU are, and how sacred the gift you are bringing to the world truly is. I love you.
