Karma… it means action, work or deed; it also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions influence the future.
Does one person really make a difference? Absolutely. Our choices, our words, our purchases, our thoughts… all of it… everything matters. For better or worse, everything we do influences something else. What ripples do you want to create and take responsibility for?
While it may seem like some people are getting away with, or even benefiting from making decisions that are selfish, we have seen it in the news and in our own lives over and over again, their consequences find them in one way or another.
Let us each take responsibility for what we are taking and what we are giving with every thing we do, and act like it matters, because it does. Since 1994, the little green mosquito has been our mascot (even though she looks more like a dragonfly), and we live and work by the African Proverb, “If you think you’re too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a room with a mosquito.”
We are so much more powerful when we move together. We hope the links in this roundup serve as reminders and encouragement that we can all make better choices, and that it’s worth it. Thank you for caring and for trying to keep doing better with us as we try and find our way too.
