Today it was an interesting day
as I walk around my house looking at all the I have gather
everything I own came from the earth
everything I own was built by someone somewhere in this world.
I wonder how the people that made my stuff lived?
I wonder if the people that made my stuff took pride on their work?
I wonder how much care did they used to make any of my stuff?
I wonder if the people that made the stuff that I own even thought of how it was going to help someone or if the persons they where building the things for would even appreciated or take good care of it?
I look at all that I own with a new appreciation as someone somewhere in this world (even if it was china!) made it for me.
I look at all that I own with new appreciation of the tremendous team effort it takes for me to have all the materials possessions that are already present in the experience of my life.
Then a thought hit me compare to the people that made this stuff for me I live like a queen!
This thought I couldn't believe! so I went around my house trying to find an example to disprove the claim this thought had brought.
I looked at my sofa...and what did I see? The wood that it came from, came from a tree, that came from a forest, that was cut down by man.
Then I realize that everything start with the work of man hands...from picking, mixing, cutting, gluing, screwing, cutting, growing, digging, building, cooking, even to have babies!
Everything started with the work of someones hands! Then I decided to go look at all the places my stuff was made.... I wanted to find the answers to my questions.
So I took a trip around the world in 60 minutes without even having to leave my home! Thanks to the internet and “G – Earth”... cost me only US 19.95 for my internet connection!
As I looked at this place I have never been...and took a closer look at how people lived...with no judgment on the people nor whatever I had heard ...just at what I could see....that could compare to me.
What I saw was so shocking to me! How blind could I have been to have not seen the abundance I live in!
All my complaints became nullified...how could I complaint about my own laziness!
I stand here in shock and horror at myself as I witness the laziness, the egoistic way, the unfairness and uncaring....as that is what it is...I didn't care who did it or how was it done...as long as it was available to me when I wanted or able to afford it!
I stand here reclaiming the parts that I have given up of myself for what I thought was my comfort...that really turn out to be my laziness....as I still look for comfort still I just realize that this kind no material thing can provide.
I asked for forgiveness from myself and from all others that my laziness has affected in any negative way....
there is no excuse that I could find for my action as I look back at my life as none of what I said today is new news so even ignorance is not an excuse the only thing that it was my own selfish laziness....I heard and saw myself said many times “I don't care” or more popular term “who gives a fuck?!” it was more shocking to confirmed that is how I really felt back them!
I hope my words are a reminder today....to appreciate and gives thanks for the abundance and “comforts” you have today yet also realize the energy exchange....as somewhere in the world there is another person who has it completely opposite to you! (chances are they made the stuff you own!)
please share your abundance today and don't complain....as I hope you too realize how truly blessed you are!
