I am writing this thread to share some info concerning how we affect each other, but also how you do not have to physically know someone, or even ever
met them. I have no links to post, or any books to add. This is more along the lines of personal day to day.
Even if you dont remember someone doesn't mean that you didn't have an impact on their lives. As a matter of fact you dont have to meet most people
and have an impact. You can impact 100 people through one person by word of mouth alone.
You go to a party and spill a drink on someone. One person will tell another, and another. You have officially become a story in the mind of
strangers. Due to this embarrassment, a person that over heard what had happened, is now more careful about how they hold their drink, as not to make
the mistake of someone they never met. By your story become conscience in another's mind you may have changed their future (of possibly spilling
their own drink) which in turn may have changed their future event.
Now that is only a small example. Here is another and this involves us here on ATS. The same as the above story we share with not only those who post,
or chat, but as others discuss this with those outside this group, you then become a part of another's life, without even knowing it. You can either
affect people in a positive or negative way. But our form of communication causes us to have a connection that sometimes we dont always see.
If we began to live knowing that each of us is a teacher, no matter the message, we may be more careful of our actions. We are some what connected in
a sense that is hard to comprehend. You can even think that something yo said was very small and unimportant, and move past the event. But in
actuality you have made an impact on the future decisions of another based on something that may have meant nothing to you.
I try in my life to see ahead of what I do and even when I am purposely being rude, I am aware of the above. I know that my actions, words, emotions,
communication, compassion, and love, is fully around me. I cannot take responsibility of how others might react to my actions, but I can be aware that
