I am impressed by people who are able to formulate connections that seem random but in the end are not. There are patterns everywhere and connections everywhere with almost everything in the cosmos. Still for the average person (I consider myself just that) it isn’t natural or even fun to see these connections we will write them off as coincidence not causality and we will dismiss them as a waste of time. Imagine a world where we didn’t do that and we allowed and held for moments meaning in everything we did. If we were humble enough to see the connections and were self responsible to them and in fact honored what our very being, your very beingness contributes to life. In the big sense of the word and the micro sense. We leave a footprint both carbon and I think spiritual, physical, emotional, and of course intellectually. So it follows that we impact everything and everything being connected as such we matter; every single one of us. Welcome to your/our world. Yet we live as if we don’t meet and it won’t matter and that the little things are just that small and inconsequential. Silly us, nothing is more damaging as we can certainly see with our current in (constant) crisis policies from Washington to our own personal polices here at home. We are intense manifesting, polluting, demanding oil addicts who are so very important to everything, everything we are influences everything so in turn everyone. The gulf oil crisis is the latest, biggest example yet again of how far off the beam of right action we can go. Imagine living with this responsibility without blame and fear but with pride and joy and concern for qualiy of life for all versus a chosen few? I watched a film by Jake Kotz that he made for a very dear friend and it does reflect my friend. He finds our essence through our work in film. I love what he finds as far as cosmic connections and their impact and I think each of us no matter what we do has this impact. It is fascinating, you are fascinating. I am at the moment reading a book called FREE; the future of radical pricing by Chris Anderson. His thesis is how Free is or can be actually Free no strings attached. That this weird and not so new value system is causing old outmoded thinking problems expecially economically. Another aspect is our connections and how they are now very, very important and valuable measurably. He explains this as a new currency we have co-created with the web and social networking. How reputation and influence matter more today then ever and how monetary measurement is NOT the only way to deduce value on a commodity. It has shifted to another paradigm and continues to shift and it is shaping where and how we live and make money or should I say VALUE we are now becoming value harvesters, not just straight up money collectors for profit.
So you are of value today in ways that were immeasurable yesterday. Your very being counts in ways it may not have before and yet I think our importance on the grand scheme of things has always mattered and has always had impact. The joy of this is being happy about it and spreading the love and being generous. It all boils down to that…LOVE. Every action and thought and intention matters somewhere there is impact. So it helps to find the joy and love in it. So in this micro moment I can honestly say I love you because in reality you are me and I am YOU. We are in this together.
