Forget the “Oh, woe is me” crap that we’ve been conditioned to believe in.
Forget the cultural “divide” that the media so strongly suggests we subscribe to.
Forget the idea that anyone can make you angry, can upset you, can do anything TO you. Reality is that without your permission, no one can “make” you feel anything, do anything.
You and I have to face the fact that every person on this planet, every living being here with us, is as interconnected as the strands of a spiders’ web. When something disturbs one corner of that delicate construction, every part of the web wobbles. The only separation between us is what we construct.
What if every single person today decided to be loving, kind, and thoughtful no matter what happened around them? Suddenly, that delicate web would become a net. It would be stronger, better, more easily seen.
If we continued? As the threads thicken and become more numerous we soon have a sheet of cloth. How much more can you catch with a sheet than a spider’s web?
If we could keep adding layers of love, of kindness and generosity, we build a quilt. Multiple levels of thoughtfulness, of giving will sew together every person of every color, every religion, every ethnicity into a warming, enveloping long-lasting quilt of well-being that could cover the planet.
Open your heart.
Open your eyes.
Let go of the tiny world your brain has you penned into, and come out in the open air and freedom.
Allow the Universe to bless you today, wrap up in that quilt of loving kindness, and then pass it on!
Have a marvelous day!
