We owe a great deal to our education which somehow has managed to have each individual think, for the most part, that he or she is just one little speck of dust, a digital aught or naught, a mere fly do-dat on a clean white sheet of paper, one of many ticket holders on the way to the big event. The fact is each individual has influence.
Walk into a gathering. Look around. Merrily assume your presence has brought nothing of significance to the party. You know… I’m here, but no big deal. Call it the ‘through the turnstiles’ mental disposition.
Speaking of turnstiles, it is a hoot that there no one in the stands at the Rio olympics because the security line-ups are so long and slow.
The point… yes there may be a point to this: When you or I walk into a room, we are like the biblical rays of sunshine just after a storm. Not that we have to be all grandiose about it or anything like that. However, we do have to appreciate being present in the world, and that, being present, is a mindful, tender, even ritualized way of entering each moment. We have creative influence just by being there. Use that as your own creative touchstone to realize the life and relations you desire.
You walk into a room. The air pressure changes. You eyes embrace the people, the furniture , the stone sculpture by the yucca palm. Your smile, or frown, casts a wave of influence. The tone of your voice changes the molecular vibration of everyone. You are a breeze on a hot day, a song on a winter’s eve. You enter stage right and cast your own spotlight. You are sunshine after a storm… and that is beautiful.
Oh… good time for fasting, cleansing and renewal of one’s sense of shared well-being. Good time to clear the lungs of old stale air… literally… blow out! I am doing a juice fast and blowing a wee bit grumpy, I know. Please forgive me.
