We are continually directed by They and Them to go big. To accomplish more, to do more, to earn more, to be more.
As if a small life wasn’t worthy. As if small experiences weren’t valid.
I say: the small stuff is usually the best stuff.
We believe the myth of more, more, more until we get to a place where we taste some of that more that They and Them have told us we want. And we find out… it’s not as satisfying as we thought.
A human being having a spiritual experience on this planet will soon find that having more stuff, or more money, or more fame, or more power, isn’t particular satisfying.
When it comes down to it, we each have to figure out how to get through the same 24 hours in a day. And often, in fact usually, it’s the small things that make us happiest. A warm bed with someone you love beside you. Watching geese fly across a winter’s sky. The way the light glints on the wet road, and rain mists up from the earth. Doing work that you love, simply and clearly. Caring for people you’re responsible for.
The modern day version of chop wood, carry water.
If you’re hung up on more, or think “oh, if I had more it would be different for me”, take a slow deep breath, and then another, and ask the Universe to help you experience the grace of going small.
