The universe is like a dance we are all a part of, taking place at each moment in time. Take the time to remember how connected we are, to honor those connections and realize the impact of each person we meet. New dance partners or groups that we become connected to, shape our movements just as much as we have an input to the rhythm. This is a theme; the rhythm of life, work and love. During times of change we may feel out of rhythm, out of balance, out of time. It’s hard to know whether old feelings are arising, clearing for us to move forward and learn something new, resurfacing to rebuild a connection or maybe even diverting our attention to a new focus so we can experience a whole new lesson. Whichever the path may be, it allows us to hear a new beat – create a new dance. Don’t stop dancing.
“See the trees, the grass, the flowers, the mountains, the ocean. Look and really see. See how effortlessly they serve. Their very life is service. Know that your life too, is service. Let service arrive naturally from your life. Commit to your growth, to loving yourself and following your heart. Commit to joy, passion, gratitude for your life and all your lessons. Commit to honestly sharing and expressing who you are, what you feel, what you’re going through. Cherish your life. It’s a gift, not just to yourself but to others. To the entire universe.”
There is a rippling effect that flows through us. Our service is sharing our lives with each other and not only honoring connections between people but with the life that surrounds us; mother nature.
Since my last blog, I noted I would be sharing the profits from my website to a local non-profit organization. I would like to introduce ‘Living Oceans Society’, an organization devoted to building a network of marine protected areas that links important habitats along BC’s coast. Based in Sointula, a small fishing village off the central coast of BC, Living Oceans Society continually strives to help sustain our natural environment while at the same time actively involving people and their communities as part of the solution to our eco system distress.
Connecting the people to ocean and the ocean to the people.
The scale of our environmental issues can seem overwhelming but every action, no matter how small, makes a difference in helping to preserve our planet and all it sustains.
