Someone might have these thoughts: Who am I and why do I matter? I’m only one person what difference do I make? What difference does anything I do make?
He then bends down and picks up a stick.
There are 7 billion people on this planet and each and everyday it moves and it all happens.
If one action doesn’t doesn’t matter how does it all happen? One thought ate a time, in a moment; one step at a time, in a moment.
Maybe there was once a single atom that asked such a question but here we are and here the universe is.
I think we do not know and understand the importance of one thought in one moment. Thus we conflate lack of understanding with it doesn’t matter.
These moments string together with the collision of time. Bang, bang, bang the moments go. Each nothing but each is absolutely everything.
If we actually think thoughts like that in the first lines we should reflect to see how life works. This shows how powerful right thoughts are.
I have built city, state and national walls and boarders
A result of walls and boarders built by my mind
Relics and tools handed down from generation to generation
Time erodes its reasons so I create my own
Powerful tool or powerful master?
Today I awoke without a headache! It’s quite a marvelously and I’m so thankful that I don’t have one, well come to think of it I really haven’t had one in years. Just like the The Minimalist article The Worst Christmas Ever about the child that become painfully away of all the presents he/she didn’t get after only after ungifting all their presents, we too are usually only thankful and/or grateful for something after it has been stripped away or shortly after suffering a painful infliction, and this could be physical or mental.
We have so much to be thankful for but sometimes it takes deliberate attention and cultivation to remind ourselves how rich we really are! What are you thankful and or grateful for today?
