Every thing we do matters: The Ripple Effect

From The Daily OM,    www.dailyom.com/


In a world of six billion people, it’s easy to believe that the only way to initiate profound transformation is to take extreme action. Each of us, however, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others. As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward. The impact you have on the world is greater than you could ever imagine, and the choices you make can have far-reaching consequences. You can use the ripple effect to make a positive difference and spread waves of kindness that will wash over the world.

Should the opportunity arise, the recipient of a good deed will likely feel compelled to do a good deed for someone else. Someone feeling the effects of negative energy will be more likely to pass on that negative energy. One act of charity, one thoughtful deed, or even one positive thought can pass from individual to individual, snowballing until it becomes a group movement or the ray of hope that saves someone’s life. Every transformation, just like every ripple, has a point of origin. You must believe in your ability to be that point of origin if you want to use the ripples you create to spread goodness. Consider the effect of your thoughts and actions, and try to act graciously as much as possible.

A smile directed at a stranger, a compliment given to a friend, an attitude of laughter, or a thoughtful gesture can send ripples that spread among your loved ones and associates, out into your community, and finally throughout the world. You have the power to touch the lives of everyone you come into contact with and everyone those people come into contact with. The momentum of your influence will grow as your ripples moves onward and outward. One of those ripples could become a tidal wave of positivity.

humanbeing,

Your words are very profound, if only the Judges, Sheriff's Dept, City Council, Glen Rose Nursing home's administration, Gary Marks and his cronies would take heed to your wisdom, Glen Rose might be  place where visitors would want to visit.  Not one person from that town stepped in to help an abused Traumatic Brain injured young man who was refused medical treatment and died a horrible death because of the apathy and neglect of all the above mentioned people.  It's sad to say but the only people who will value your wisdom is the people who already have that wisdom.

These aren't my words but those from The Daily Om. I offer them simply as a reminder to us all how important it is to hold to the positive, even when it's difficult.

in responce to recent political anouncments.i would like to say our county leaders are like diapers they need to be changed for obviouse reasons . glenrose could be a great place to live but it seems our county leaders are rather narrow minded as to what we could have . it seems the moral majority are more interested in there own personel gains along with that of there relatives . than they are for the good of this county.

You may be right, hawgman. I don't know. The message of the original post is that we absolutely must transcend our petty agendas and work together to preserve what is really valuable. We are all the same, really, and we need each other in this time. We can create something much better, this I am sure of. Let's do it. (and if that means changing politicians frequently, then so be it!).
