When do we choose to care and when do we choose not to care? The act of care is often connected to something that we regard as important to us, something that we personally value, while that which we do not care for oftentimes a reflection of something that we have chosen to deem unworthy of our energy. Inevitably this assessment of reality will influence our daily choices, which in turn accumulatively create our entire life experience and that which we share with others.
The world as we know it has mostly been built in accordance to a paradigm of separation, where Nature and living beings from other natural kingdoms are perceived as completely separate entities to the self, and this paradigm has programmed us into missing how deeply interconnected everything actually is. Numerous ancient wisdom teachings have emphasised the value of this connection – Nature is not something outside of us, we are Nature. We are all pulsing in unity with this common gift of life.
This drawing is an invitation to stop and consider the impact of your choices, to stop and carefully consider that which you truly value. There is no one ‘right’ way to live, what we perceive as important is a personal choice, however for a sustainable world in which we are all able to thrive it is essential for each one of us to question how these choices impact ourselves, others, our environment and that of future generations.
