To some my title sentence makes no sense. To some, literally is how they live and see life. To some the beauty and intricacies of relationships are not something to ponder and appreciate, but to take simply at face value. But to me I am all you have and you are all I have, because if I am not valuing you, accepting you and appreciating you then what do I have? Nothing. I am not prosperous, because without you how can I share my wealth of life’s lessons learned. I am not growing, because without you how will I challenge myself, better myself and live up to my potential. I am not loved, because without you who will I give love to, so I too can feel it’s incredible warmth in return?
So, what I do for you, I do for me and what I don’t do for you, I don’t do for me. The sooner we accept that we are all connected through our shared humanity, the sooner we can get to the business of showing each other the unconditional love that Jesus spoke about and Muhammad and every pivotal person intent on connecting us through love in the history of the world. In 2013 our mindset has to be elevated exponentially. While some of us have accepted and are now committed to helping others, we must no longer look at it as helping them, but accept that our positive actions are done for the good of us all.
Where do we go from there? What have we come to? We have come right back where we started and we are now called to be compassionate. If we look at all the world’s ills, how many can be helped if we just exercise a little compassion? I feel certain at the least, we will get the attention we feel we deserve, something that many feel they do not get and has caused much malaise in this world. When you realize I am you and you are me, then you accept without hesitation, that compassion for others is needed in life just as you want it for yourself. Compassion for every thing that is living, not just humans is key to our world surviving and continuing without humanity perishing.
The whole is always greater than the sum of the parts.
Let our compassion be coupled with wisdom, so that when we set out to help with the myriad of causes out there, we are able not to get caught up in help that puts us in a reactive mode. Let us take time and think things through so we can be in active mode. I have been blessed to be introduced to some incredible ladies in two groups this year, Shades of Social Media and Pushing Lovely. I have found some like minded individuals that are keen on promoting love, peace and compassion into this world. This provides an ideal opportunity for us to team up and support this movement and create a synergy that will be greater than any one person can accomplish. The whole is always greater than the sum of the parts it is said, and I tend to agree. I hope you will join the movement and know that you too can do good wherever you are, even in your little corner of the world.
Peace & Light
