It’s a sunday afternoon and I am writing this post on behalf of my girlfriend. Actually she just asked me to put those pictures and write something about it. The pics are hers, not mine. Or, somehow they are mine too. Inspired by me, shot with my cam, as she visited Costa Rica for a training. In a way, I followed her to Central America.
How much influence do we have over the humans surrounding us?
“everything is interconnected”
Probably the most famous sentence among spiritual humans and circles. But how far is our comprehension about it? Do I understand it? Can I fully grasp what this actually means? Sometimes I think I do. Then again, I have no idea how something can come over me, the way it does.
My Being. Where does it leave trails? Can I look into the mirror and say: “I am grateful about the influence you have on other humans!???” Is this true in the core of my heart? Well meant is not always helpful! Do I help for the sake of multiplying of what I think is right (in the moment) or to make me feel better if others share what I belief? Or am I a support for someone to become his or her full potential? Do I have a creative influence on other humans?
In this case I did. My girlfriend was sometimes on the hunt with the camera to trap a moment of reality. She was aware about the world around, had a conciousness for the inhabitants of nature. Other students in her training asked: “are there snakes around?” I probably had bursted out loudly laughing in this moment. Tropical jungle surrounding the facility and then such a question! They didn’t see any snakes in the end, but the snake list of Costa Rica made my heart beating fast. One day I shall visit them! But there were other creatures of our mother earth, willing to to be captured on a picture.
Back to philosophy. Is it philosophy the way I write? No idea. I write what comes into my head and just type it down. As usual, I have no idea how the post will be when I begin. The writing has its own life, it just passes through me.
A lot of things happened again in those past few weeks. Concerning me, concerning my closer surroundings. Some were very unpleasant. And yet I have a trust in me, that everything is falling in place the way it should. It feels “right”. I am a part of it. A very important part. The most important part for myself. Since a while now I consciously send my surroundings with good thoughts and vibes. Do they help? Well, I can only feel it. Logic and words don’t even come close to how it feels. How can I explain my gut-feeling? 😛
Those thoughts are at least not harmful. I can look into a mirror and say: “Thank you for helping the collective human race.” And shall it be with thoughts “only”. Not that I am symphathetic towards the entire humanity; but it needs all the help it can get. Good and creative thoughts are something that everyone of us can give. And it feels way much better than the other side of the coin. I know what I’m talking about.
Again: What is our influence? What does it do? How does it spread?
Do I see the mirroring of myself with a deep feeling of gratitude in my chest, or do I think; “you bastard!” ?
It’s my choice.
I wish, that the next time you look into a mirror you can say:
“It’s so nice that I exist.”
