"You won't influence the world by being like it." Powerful statement I read on a restaurant wall in Salida, Colorado. We are living in a world where we have the choice to exist under the influence of other people's ideas, or we can create our own!
Every man-made object that exists today started from a thought. Every table, chair, decoration, piece of clothing, highway, building, etc., was first an idea.
"Ways of life" are similar. Cultures differ based on actions, habits, and beliefs passed on and absorbed into the malleable brains of children. We've get used to participating in the existing physical and energetic structures we forget that once upon a time these structures were ideas.
It is important at this time to reflect upon what feels right to us as individuals. What lifestyle, relationship dynamic, career, style, etc. feels right to you? If it is something that does not yet exist in this culture or is not the norm perhaps you are the one to invent a new structure....
....Which ultimately others will follow, as we are still working with our mirror neurons. But we can make the choice to be more mindful and "heartful" in our next creations.
