Interdependance ~

FB_IMG_1504809991810

Today I was reminded of Humility, Kindness and our Human Interdependance
I currently live in a small village in the South of France.I dont have a car and rely on the bus service to get into nearby towns, a service which sometimes works out and sometimes not.. 😊
As I realised this morning that Ive been misinformed and have been waiting on a bus that will not come, I was worried about missing an important appointment in town.
Then came a schoolbus collecting the kids for school, I hesitated to ask because I remember from prior occasions they dont tend to take on individuals but one glimpse at the face of this driver made me feel she seems nice, so I asked.
She’s going to the other town, she replied and I left walking home trying to figure out what to do..and then she honked calling me back..she said exceptionally after dropping the kids off she will be going to the other town
If I wouldnt mind joining the ride.
I gleamed! She was my Angel for today!
During the drive we started a very pleasant conversation..she mentioned a phrase I use so often “There are no chances, things are designed from above” I gleamed even more..she speaks my kind of language..
I shared with her how I hesitated to ask her and how I felt pushed to take the chance especially as I felt she was a nice person.
She then also shared that she had ‘felt’ me too and after I walked away she thought about how nicely I asked and about my accent meaning I may need extra help, not being from here.
That point touched me the most..the understanding that someone who may not be from here may need extra help rather than feel wary of them..
She then told me how much she believes in solidarity and shared some of her own similar experiences of need.
I think sometimes we dont realise how much we need each other!
When I had felt the dissapointment earlier, I couldnt help but use the phrase “why is this happening?”
I took all the necessary measures to make sure about the timetable
And then in the bus I received my answer.. Its not a question of control..its a matter of a certain Humility in our Human Existence.. to Trust.. the Universe..and our fellow Brothers and Sisters here with us..trusting their kindness..and understanding through these experiences how much no matter how we are organised..we are interdependant on each other..
We must step out of our own bubbles and the more we do so the more we can understand others and how much we are similar and interconnected.
This was such a beautiful moment and I wished to show her my gratitude.
I had remembered I prepared some vegan Sweet Potato muffins and had taken them with me for my day in town.
Its funny but I recalled thinking to myself I have a feeling I will be offering one to someone today!
I was suddenly happy I took extra care and wrapped each one..now it felt extra special..
And yay, I felt this warmth in me as I offered her one..something made by my hands and care that I can offer her. I was even more thrilled when she said you know Im fasting at the moment as Im headed for a blood test and this will be the first thing I eat as soon as its done.
I felt this warmth in my heart.
This Human experience..
Can be so Beautiful..

Love makes the world go round…

The Post lady just passed by with my mail all soaked to the bone in the pouring rain..
I kept thinking and asking what could I do to help her ..I finally gave her a pair of new dry socks to put on as soon as she gets a pause..
Wondering..can we begin today to see ourselves in the ‘Other’ ..any ‘Other’ that just crosses our path..
May we begin today to ponder and open our eyes..look around..someone today could really use your attention, help and love.. the smallest gesture of being present for another can actually change their life around today..
Just imagine the ripple effect..
If you are disturbed by the world’s vibes at the moment.. offer any small gesture of kindness that you wouldnt normally think of..to a total stranger..see yourself in him/her..he is another you..
We are all in this TOGETHER
((( World Hug )))

Love can make the world go round and round … ❤
Much love
Mia

Aujourdhui la factrice est passee trompee d’eau jusqu’a l’os dans la pluie
Je n’ai pas arrete a penser et a lui demander qu’est-ce que je pourrais faire pour l’aider..finalement je lui ai donner un pair de chaussettes secs pour quelles puisse des qu’elle aura un pause de changer et se mettre un petit peu au sec et au chaud..ce n’est pas grand chose..
Mais je me demande..si on se pose plus de questions et on regarde un peu plus autour de nous..il ya surement un “autre” dont lequel on pourrons nous retrouver et comprendre..il y’a surement qu’el q’un qui croise notre chemin aujourdhui que votre petit geste de gentillesse ou de presence lui changera son monde..
Si vous etes perturbes par la negativite dans le monde aujourdhui qui nous divise et detruit..pensez a regarder autour de vous..vous trouverez surement un ” autre”.. un etranger que vous pouvez ameliorer son experience avec votre petit geste..et on pourra commencer a circuler plus d’amour et de gentillesse dans ce monde..ca va loin..tres loin..
Pensez y..
Beaucoup d’amour
Mia
