Now think of a child’s consciousness in relation to our collective consciousness as a world. Think of our collective consciousness as the connections that are made in one giant brain. As I reflect on 9-11 and all of the hatred and fear that erupted from that one day in American/World history I cannot help but ponder how we are strengthening certain things in the network of human consciousness. Are we strengthening pathways of fear and hatred, or love and compassion? Whatever path becomes well trodden is what we tend to follow. Think about it. When you’re hiking, you’re always looking for a safe, clear place to step.
So, in the same way we’re always trying to protect children, and give them the best experiences of peace and love, so too we must carry this into all areas of our own lives and the way we move in this world. Strengthen pathways of love and compassion through your actions, your intentions, and your words. The less we travel the road of hatred and fear, the more overgrown it will become. Perhaps with enough neglect that road will become impassable.
Peace, Love, and Laughter,
