Do you have any idea how much your caring and kindness change the world each and every moment? Do you understand that your joy, as well as your misery, goes into the energy field that we live in and has an effect on the entire planet?
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. –Margaret Mead, 1901-1978, Anthropologist, Writer and Speaker
Energy is not local. Many of us have had the experience of picking up the energy of someone we are very close to, even if they were thousands of miles away. You might have had a sense of the moment when someone you loved died. You might have picked up the phone and called a loved one just as they were thinking about you. We live in a universe of energy, and our thoughts, feelings, and actions are a part of this energy.
What Energy Are You Putting into the Universe?
Whenever you choose the intent to protect/control/avoid, you put dark negativity into the universal energy field we live in. Whenever you choose the intent to learn about loving yourself and others, and you move into peace, love, and joy, you put light positive energy into that field. Just imagine what life on our planet would be like if everyone was aware of this and worked to contribute positive energy to the universe!
Part of loving yourself is realizing how very important you are. You are a vital part of the whole – the whole being what we call God or Spirit.
This is one important reason why it’s so vital to practice Inner Bonding throughout the day, staying present in your body in Step One, and attending to your thoughts and actions whenever there is anything less than peace inside. Each moment you are in peace and joy, loving yourself and sharing your love with others, you are adding to the peace of the world.
Your Contribution to the Planet
Many of my clients state that they want to discover what they can contribute to the planet. They often miss the fact that the most important contribution they can make is their own inner peace and joy. While many people have contributed inventions, how much have they added to peace on our planet? How many people have consciously and intentionally contributed their own peace and joy to the energy of our planet, for the good of all?
If you have a hard time knowing what your calling is, start with focusing on what brings you joy. Start with a dedicated Inner Bonding practice, learning to love yourself and share your love with others. You will find that as you dedicate yourself to your Inner Bonding practice, you will gradually discover what brings you joy to offer to the planet. And while you are discovering this, you will be offering the planet the most important thing you can offer – your peace and joy. And when you discover your calling, then you can also offer your excitement and passion.
In today’s world, we cannot afford to stay anxious, depressed, guilty, ashamed, angry, jealous, empty, or needy. We cannot afford to put so much of these negative feelings into the universe. It’s time to be vigilant about our feelings and not tolerate unnecessary negativity. Practice Inner Bonding the moment you are aware of any negativity. Practice Step One so that you stay aware of your feelings, moment by moment. This will help you move from negative to positive very quickly. You CAN contribute to changing the world!
