Hey everyone! I’m starting a new type of posts called Bathroom Wisdoms!
No, it’s not that my bathroom speaks to me uttering some profound wisdom to me when I’m in there…well not exactly, but this bathroom is special because it’s where my sister and I meet up for little ciggie breaks and talk! It’s not really that weird!! As we puff away we tend to talk about stuff and sometimes the light bulb in my mind goes “DING!!” like a call bell!
So I thought it would be cool to share some of these DING moments with you too 😀
Bathroom Wisdom 1 : The Value of one.
Background story :
The conversation revolved around the believe that most people today don’t seem to value any sort of course or healing session (and the like) if it is free. Most times the idea behind asking for payment for such things is that if a person invests the money then they would more likely be serious about doing something for themselves, learning the tools and using them because they paid for it. It’s like a filter to take out those that merely come for a session out of curiosity or worse skeptics that just want to proof their point that these things are just a waste of time and not “evidence based” (and such).
My sister however didn’t agree to that. She didn’t feel that was a good enough reason to not do free sessions for some people, based on the practitioners judgement. In fact, she believes that for those who already have other work which supports them, then if they choose there really isn’t a need to charge anyone at all!
The DING moment:
Here is what she said to me: You know we all talk about the oneness in everyone and everything, so why are we so worried about the majority? Why aren’t we concerned about just that ONE person whom we can help? Just touching one person is amazing because we each hold the Universe within ourselves, so though it’s just ONE person…we are affecting the whole Universe!
And it’s true! In this day and age where almost all of us play the number game, when the value of anything is measured by how much or how many, we forget the value of that ONE person. We forget the wonderful stories like the story of how the shepherd with a hundred sheep went out looking for just that one which was lost. We forget that when we do affect just one person we are in effect starting a chain reaction that will ripple out at affect others.
And here is the other thing, we even forget that we ourselves can be that ONE person! Whenever we take charge of our lives and learn to live a better life, it doesn’t ever stop at just us! Because the change from within is exhibited without and flow out around us.
Wouldn’t it be amazingly wonderful if we continued to remind ourselves of this? Imagine if each of us were to just affect ONE person in a positive way…how quickly this world would change!!
So here’s to the extremely wonderful and awesome value of ONE!!! 🙂
