Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does.
Margaret Mead: A Life by Jane Howard
YAY! I’ve been in LA this week, for book signings – for The Inspired Life and inviting people to say, “Yes,” to living their Inspired Life Vision (check out my schedule and join me when I’m in your town).
Tuesday was The Bodhi Tree Bookstore in West Hollywood; Wednesday morning at the Inside Edge in Irvine and last night at Awakenings Center for Conscious Living in Laguna Hills.
I must admit that the opportunity to gather in community, even temporary communities, and speak about living an inspired life is one of my very favorite activities.
And this week I was inspired by the willingness of the people, most of whom wereinitially strangers to me, as our gathering began, to share deeply from their hearts their desire to:
- live their lives on purpose
- allow their “voice” and authenticity to be shared
- cultivate a loving relationship with themselves as the blueprint for all their relationships
- be free of the wounds of the past
- upgrade the software of their mind, acknowledging that they are worthy, loving and loved
- in Gandhi’s words, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
It was in these communities, this week, that each of us allowed ourselves to be seen, to be reminded that we share a bond in that we are all alive at this time. It is in open-heartedly sharing who we are, that connections are created, community is formed and the world evolves and it changed.
Inspired Life Action: Make the time today to let the people who are your community of support know the difference they make in your life. Express your love and appreciation – which is truly the most precious gift you have to offer.
