In life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Most people know what foods are healthy and what foods aren’t good for them. So why do people eat foods that they know are not good for them? Most people know that smoking isn’t good for them. So why do people smoke? Most people know that exercise is a healthy regime to maintain their bodies health. So why don’t people do it? This list could go on and on, but you get the point. Do you do, what you know?People know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. If you are not in alignment with your body, mind, and spirit, you will be guided by your emotions, which will always steer you down the path of least resistance. You must be consciously aware of your choices, and disciple yourself to choose what you already know is best for you. So, you can do what most people know, and don’t do, or you can do what you know, and be healthy, and empowered. The choice is yours.
Did you know, that the way you do one thing is the way you do everything. How do you wash dishes, or fold laundry? Or what are your daily habits? Do you eat healthy foods and take care of your body? Do you take time to read and nourish your mind? Or do you rush through your life, not paying much attention to any small act? It’s really the small things that add up to the bigger ones. Are you even conscious of your breath? By taking the time and consciously becoming aware of the seemingly little things in your life, everything will improve. The way you do one thing is the way you do everything. Every act, thought, and feeling, that you have effects your being. They may appear, subtle, minute, and not important, however, they become apart of your makeup. Your character is influenced by the accumulation of all the small things. The way you do one thing is the way you do everything. So examine your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Become the observer of your own life. The next time you wash dishes, or make your bed, or cook a meal, consciously become aware of the process and add a dash of love to any and everything you do. You will be amazed at what a difference it will make in your life. Its the little things, add up to the bigger ones. Everything you do matters!
Ah yes, spring is finally here. The forsythia is in bloom and the daffodils are brightening our days with their cheerful presence. Everything is coming back to life. It is miraculous. Underneath our feet is the earth that supports the growth of these plants and all life on earth. Soil, or what can be referred to as earth must be healthy in order for our plants to thrive and grace us with there beauty. Unfortunately, many people have lost the connection with nature and are destroying our soil with chemicals like herbicides, pesticides and insecticides. Then feeding it with toxic fertilizers. The earth is alive, and just like our minds must start out with a healthy foundation in order to grow strong, vibrant and healthy. Compost, using natural alternatives, (and there are many out there) to toxic ones that destroy all of the micronutrients that support the infrastructure of our soil. Like our bodies and minds we too are made up of this soil. Healthy soil supports a healthy community. Like above so below. Pick up some soil today and feel it, smell it,bless it, thank it and support it. Your life depends on healthy soil. Reconnect with your roots.
