When giving careful and calculated thought on how else you might see certain situations differently than you now see them - and your entire life for that matter - please keep in mind that occasionally being on “the fringe,” is good.

Because when a tree falls in the woods, and nobody is there to hear it, it never really fell. Nor were there any woods.

Our simplest thought or action - the decisions we make each day, and how we see and relate to the world - can be incredibly significant and have a profound impact on the lives of those around us, as well as the world at large. The earth and everything on it is bound by an invisible connection between people, animals, plants, the air, the water, and the soil. 'Insignificant' actions on your part, whether positive or negative, can have an impact on people and the environment that seem entirely separate from your personal realm of existence. Staying conscious of the interconnection between all things can help you think of your choices and your life in terms of the broader effect you may be creating. Staying conscious of your connection to all things can help you think of your choices in terms of their impact.

We are powerful enough that what we do and say can reverberate through the lives of people we may never meet. Understanding that you are intimately connected with all things and understanding your power to affect our world can be one the first steps on the road to living more consciously.
