A Tiny Shift Matters — A Lot
Imagine yourself standing at the edge of a pond. The water is calm, still and smooth like glass. In your hand, you hold a pebble. You drop the pebble into the water, and from the place where the pebble submerges, ripples ruffle the water’s surface. The small waves start at the point of the pebble’s entry, and they make their way the entire distance to the banks of the pond, touching the earth in waves.
You are the pond, and every thought, action and feeling is a pebble, influencing your body, relationships, future and present moment. In your existence, there is no insignificant moment. The universe is also that pond, and you are that pebble. Your life, energy and love echo energetically to the very edges of all creation. You have that much power.
“You can see how important it is to have the right intention in everything you undertake. You are always being watched from Above in whatever you do, and you will sooner or later receive the consequences of your actions. Acbadadea (Spirit, Maker of All Things Above) is beyond all things of this world, but He is also within all things… So everyone should realize that a man’s actions and intentions are observed and that even the way in which he fulfills his daily chores is important. A man’s attitude toward the Nature around him and the animals in Nature is of special importance, because as we respect our created world, so also do we show respect for the real world that we cannot see”.
— Thomas Yellowtail
To understand this we should become aware that the slightest and seemingly most insignificant initial condition or intention could drastically change your situation. That even a tiny variation in your thought and awareness could create such a different life path or life`s momentum that it might, in fact, initiate a chain of events, that it could change your live . In chaos theory, this is known as sensitive dependence on initial conditions. The message is that every action, no matter how small, can cause a huge reaction somewhere else or at some future time. Talking about working on your karma! Isn’t that exciting?
The more we work with intention combined with mindfulness the more we can make changes in our lives. Positive and negative. We can make adjustments to our diet, start meditating, become more mindful of being kind to yourself and others, taking care of our physical body with starting to exercise. We become different people creating a different world for ourselves and others. This shift depends upon our willingness to consistently move along the wellness continuum, in whatever ways we can. This means to practice it.
Really all that matters is to be present. Which is a challenge for us , because our mind set is mostly oriented toward the past or the future. It is mostly oriented outwards , instead of inwards. What leads us is hopes, dreams and emotions.
So much of meaning in life, comes from the willingness to lean into things that make us vulnerable. It is the exposure of the self, not the protection, that creates meaning!
We are trillions of cells and microorganisms held by gravity and the only thing for change we have is our awareness. So slow down and wait just a moment. Just to check your thinking, and make sure that your thinking is not forcing you into a falls story. How easy and coherent it might seem.
In modern life, every small factor is significant and influential. This is why setting your intention and living your life in a way that pulls you toward your ultimate empowerment — in every moment — is so important. The way you make conversation, learning the art of listening, food choices you make , being a mindful consumer, environmental adjustments you make, this all will be of influence where you will find yourself in a week, a year or a decade.
Every little thing you do is a pebble in the pond. And how you create your life ripples out and affects everyone and everything, known or unknown to you.
When practicing this awareness muscle, it will affect your life. You need to pay close attention to your feelings and observations. Ask yourself questions: Where am I now, and where do I want to be? Just be aware. The more you become aware of the effects of each choice you make, the more you will be able to choose differently and better for yourself. As you live more creatively, you’ll be amazed at how these small moments come together and inform your big breakthroughs
I think that change becomes inevitable. I think that we can grow and change without difficulty, without struggle. We can remind ourselves, to accept change and stop judging. It’s as simple as that! Your awareness becomes light. Through acceptance you become more aware; you become more light. You realize there is no need to rush, physically or mentally, because you know somewhere deep down that there is nowhere to go.
When there is nowhere to go you become true to yourself, you are completely honest with what you feel, deeply value, and desire. It also means communicating your feelings wholeheartedly both with yourself and others, allowing your truth to flow through you and into the world.
Understanding when you are in alignment or out of alignment may often be based on an intuitive feeling rather than a thought. Feelings of openness, expansion, inner joy and freedom are good signs that you are on the right path. Conversely, if you are not being true to yourself, it may show up through feelings of contraction and tension, unease, disconnection, resignation, emptiness, discontentment, or a lack of fulfillment.
By learning to pay attention to your deeper senses and feelings, and by cultivating greater awareness in your life, you can establish a strong connection to yourself and feel confident in knowing what is deeply true for you.
But what is true, also yearns to be expressed. So it is up to each of us to be courageous in bringing forth our own truth, expressing it fully and authentically in the world.
So imagine you are standing at the edge of the pond, you drop the pebble into the water. Representing every thought, action and feeling, influencing your body, relationships, future and present moment. You becoming life, energy and love. You that have that much power. Isn't that exciting?
