My grandfather took me to the fish pond on the farm
I was about seven, and he told me to throw a stone
into the water.
He told me to watch the circles created by the stone.
Then he asked me to think of myself as that stone
"You may create lots of splashes in your life but
that come from those splashes will disturb the peace
your fellow creatures," he said. "Remember that you
for what you put in your circle and that circle will
also touch many
other circles. You will need to live in a way that
allows the good
that comes from your circle to send the peace of that
others. The splash that comes from anger or jealousy
those feelings to other circles. You are responsible
That was the first time I realized each person creates
peace or discord that flows out into the world. We
create world peace if we are riddled with inner conflict,
doubt, or anger. We radiate the feelings and thoughts
hold inside, whether we speak them or not. Whatever
around inside of us is spilling out into the world,
or discord with all other circles of life.
Remember the eternal wisdom:
WHATEVER YOU FOCUS ON EXPANDS...
a great way of putting it!!
someone to explore their inner peace!!!
Pass the splashes on to your friends and family!!!
