Speak to us of our effect upon others…
Life is like the ripples in a lake. You throw the pebble into the water and a ripple circles the break in the water…then another ripple and another and another. Depending on the size and weight of the pebble, the distance thrown, and the velocity as it breaks through the surface of the water, the ripples emanating from the center may reflect back for only a short while or they may continue circling the original point of entry beyond your vision, or even past your time of interest to watch.
If you were able to view the other dynamics, you would be able to see the droplets of the lake as it rises out of itself to meet the air and to drop back into itself; you would see the pebble as it drops through the water molecules to plunge downward to the lake bottom. Once again, depending upon the size, weight, distance and velocity, ripples beneath the surface would emanate outwardly reflecting the same configurations as upon the surface. Beneath the water would be other disturbances as the pebble lands upon the lake bottom and again sends mirroring ripples through the molecules of sand and decaying matter.
Please note that by one simple motion, nothing has been left undisturbed, even that which is not seen by you or others in the initial action; the circle is not flat, not three dimensional. In actuality, all dimensions are touched and affected by your one simple motion ~ As above, so below. The elements of space & time, earth, water, air and mineral have all been brought into motion; even fire, in a minor way has been affected by the vibrations emitted from the lake bottom.
As you see, any action taken by you has a mirroring effect on many other elements around you. Even if and when these other elements may be unaware, they are still being affected. All this is true whether your pebble is of thought, action, or deed; whether it is for the betterment of yourself or others, whether it is selfish, whether it is a pebble of great wisdom or one of great ignorance, all are equal in effect. If you sit and meditate on the light and the truth, your ripple will be equally felt as much by all the elements it touches as the mindlessness and thoughtlessness of ignorance. Do you see how thought and action affect those that come in contact with the truth or the ignorance? All we ask is that you learn to have thought with conscious intent.
If you are frantic all things around you will reflect back anxiety. If you are angry all things will be the same. If you are joyous you will find joy in all the ripples emanating out from you. Simply put, as you act, you move forward into the ripples you have created. Seen in this way, life is truly simple and gives you the essence of fourth dimension. Just remember that you can not fool the ripples by throwing a 10 lb rock of hatred, anger and discontent into your life’s waters but say it is only a 2lb stone of happiness or kindness.
The water that receives the pebble always knows the truth of what has been cast into it. Even when you may be ignorant or unconscious, creation is not made of trickery and in turn it cannot be tricked. Learn the truth within yourself first and all of your ripples will sing a joyous song; and the truth you sing will not only set you free it will set all those that are touched by your ripples free as well.
Walk in joy, Master Ti-Emein
