“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ~Mother Teresa
All the things that you say and do create ripples that stretch beyond your most profound imaginings. Your ripples affect the entire web of life. There is nothing insignificant about you. Take care and use your power wisely. With your words and deeds, you cast many stones daily. Your stones create ripples that may eventually become waves. You are simultaneously the thrower of the stone, the stone, the ripple, the wave, the water and the world.
“We did not weave the web of life; we are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.”– Chief Seattle
On and on, imperceptible rings of your energetic emanations intersect other rings, merge, flow, transect, transform, define reality. Your reality. Life on Earth. The entire Cosmos. Your ripples are too important and far reaching to be issued forth unconsciously or unknowingly. What you create is projected and amplified. Your actions affect those you love and those you hate equally; those you know and those you haven’t met. Your actions are not singular events traveling in a singular direction. They are rings; circles that expand outward to affect all life.
While humans can never be perfect, be mindful of the ripples that you are creating today. Would you rather be enveloped in love and kindness? Put forth love and kindness. Make all of your interactions as kind as you possibly can. From the smallest gesture to the most grand, loving kindness is the highest signature of human possibility.
Even when you are alone, your actions do not go unnoticed. Even then, the ripples of your actions travel forth and create consequence to all life. It is because you are never truly disconnected from the web of life. It is impossible. If you ever feel that you are disconnected, it is only a trick of your mind.
Ripples of fear, anger and dark lower emotions will quickly turn back toward you so that you may learn to embrace growth; so you may learn to understand the importance of your actions and words. You will surely be among those affected by your own dark intent of action or word. Denser ripples are eventually dissolved by those moving at higher, lighter frequencies. They are a disturbance within the waters nonetheless. They effect the quality of life for all.
The ripples of your loving kindness will ever expand and help uplift all life. These ripples go the furthest. These ripples are felt at subtle levels that are beyond the conscious awareness of those creating slow, dense ripples. These ripples will transform others; will transform the pattern of their circles until the entire circle of life undulates in harmony.
What kind of ripples are you creating today? Here’s hoping that you understand the importance of your own place within the circle of life. Here’s hoping that you enjoy riding the wave that you helped create.
