What mark are you leaving?
How are you impacting the world? What is your influence on others?
Do you think about how others will remember you?
Throughout our life we are in contact with and mutually influencing family members, classmates, friends, partners, (our) children, our extended family, neighbors. We are also influenced by people through the media, internet, TV etc.
People continously come in and out of our life, as we enter and exit the life of others too. Some impact us over longer periods of time, some stay only briefly sometimes to pass on important insights.
If we miss an insight or lesson the first time, we will encounter it again but maybe through a different person and under different circumstances – this will go on until we “get it”, until we have learned the lesson or integrated the insight that is offered, and which is there to help us on our way.
If we look at life this way, we will soon see how everything makes sense. We can see that the people we meet and interact with, the experiences we have, our attitude, our actions and reactions, and our thoughts – all comes together in a way that is unique for us.
When we look at Life in this way, if we see it as if we have attracted everything that we encounter, we can also learn to develop a gratitude towards whatever comes our way. We know that, one way or another, it will give us some useful insight and benefit according to what we are here to learn and realise. Everything that we encounter can also be felt and seen by some people around us, and maybe we are in that way imparting insight, although unconsciously.
Our present Lifetime here on Earth is temporary. But some comfort may be taken from the fact that the vibration we constantly emit attracts the experiences we need in order to grow. It may also feel comforting that all the learning we absorb is ours to keep – it is accumulated into the “backpack” of our Soul. We get to take it with us, when it is our time to depart this plane of existence.
We are not on a schedule, and we are not in a competition – we are all on a similar journey. We are all here to evolve and experience our Soul. Our experience here, takes as long as it takes for each and everyone of us. We are here, sharing this experience and this space, with so many other Souls.
When we see that each Soul on this planet is here to learn something and each being is here to pass on some sort of insight to others – at whatever level that may be – we may suddenly see how everyone has the same right to be here at this time. We all influence eachother – the ripple effect can be felt through each one of us. We all impact the ‘pond’ we live in.
As soon as we connect with someone, it is an opportunity to learn. It is an opportunity to look at ourselves, as we are mirrored in the other person.
We connect and we share information and wisdom.
We learn from those who know more than we do. We learn from the ones we teach or help. Everyone who enters our sphere one way or another, imparts something on us.
This way our perception of the world keeps evolving and expanding . If we let it.
Interaction is key. Our interaction with Nature, with the Cosmos, with animals and with people. Without interaction we would not learn anything. Without interaction we would not be able to share ourselves with other beings.
Our PURPOSE to interact with, and influence ‘the whole’, in order to create a harmonic balance and environment for growth.
So how are you going to interact with and influence your part of the whole? What footprint are you going to leave behind?
