Depending upon where we are standing in our lives we each of us are looking out from our own vantage point on life. I was looking out of my window the other day at the blossoms on the shrubs and admiring them. I was watching the blackbird gather worms from the lawn to fly back into the bushes to feed his young, when I thought what life from their perspective view point would be like. As they fly backwards and forwards across our garden.
I was in the allotments planting Peas yesterday and Swedes seeds, and unearthed many beetles and spiders as I disturbed their homes.. What a traumatic upheaval for them as their world was destroyed by my digging. And how indifferent we can seem about their plight!
Seeing the world from another perspective, whether spiritually or mentally, can introduce you to all sorts of hidden treasures. How we react to Insects is an example, as we often hold the fear our parents passed down to us, (and how many more views we hold onto which is passed down via our upbringing) that is why I try to teach my now 4 yr old Granddaughter not to fear spiders, insects and caterpillars.. And teach her everything has a right to Life, that we are all of us part of a huge chain that interlinks with one another.
Spiders may seem to some fearsome, ugly, and frightening, And yet they manage to weave something so beautiful we could never hope to create, and there is nothing more beautiful than catching a spiders web in the morning light full of dew
There may be at times experiences in life that from your vantage point may seem worrying, confusing and terrifying, we have all been there at some point. Or there may be events that look insignificant from where you are standing right now.
Whatever perspective we view our world from; it’s often good practice to see another’s point of view. Humankind is most often presented as a story about struggle, control, and survival, instead of one of trust and collaboration with the universe. So we grow up believing we must compete instead of co-operate
There are plenty of things that we cannot control, no matter how hard we try. But we can live by our values, which allow us to become a positive source of inspiration for others.
We may not be able to help those in far off places whose lives are a struggle, with conflict and war, or who are adrift in the ocean seeking refuge from the traumas of their own countries, But by simply being yourself, you can help the people in your life see how one person can make a difference by being a living example of consciousness. And we do that by recognizing and acknowledging the inherent value in everyone you encounter. Be it a Human or Insect.. Sometimes, the easiest way to encourage people – even challenging ones – to respect others is to respect them first.
The interconnectedness of all living beings using concrete, everyday examples. Many people are unaware of how their actions affect the world and are intrigued when they learn of the power they hold.
We each of us have that POWER, and we can do that by our own actions and intentions.. We do it by embracing the Positive, encouraging Peace and Tolerance and not allowing ourselves to get caught within the traps being set by Fear..
