I know this is not original but how much of our fate is selffulfilling prophecy? At what point do we learn to turn this around and begin to make
changes not in the larger picture, but in the small things we do each day starting with our own thoughts dreams ideas and prayer?
In life it is never the big stuff that we remember and at the end of the day even count in our memories, it is always the little things that matter. A
conversation with an older family member, watching our children take the first steps, falling in love, the first kiss. These are the little things
that add up to showing us who we really are and what our awareness means.
Struggling to our bills , solving one crisis after another, worrying about the things which we have no control over, these are the things that take
us away from ourselves and the things that matter most. They keep us on a basic survival level, and who can fight the good fight when they are anxiety
ridden or hungry?
When things get so hectic and you just have no recourse, when you hit rock bottom, alone, tired or afraid, this is when we relax, when we turn back to
something deeper and greater than ourselves. This is when we again are shown the opportunity to appreciate and see the small things we can be grateful
for each day.
If you remember the source from which you came and to one day you will return, then your life takes on a different quality, one of a centered sense of
knowing that everything is going to work out just fine in the big picture, and your job is to be just a grain of sand in the ocean of infinity.
A single grain of sand does not an island make. Yet without it, the island is an impossible dream.
