I read a neat quote on Twitter the other day: “Knowledge isn’t free, you have to pay attention.”
Knowledge and information are abundant and everywhere! Yes, in books (one of my favorite places to look!), but also in your backyard, in the sky, at work, even on your Facebook or Twitter feed.
When I went to the hospital to deliver my second daughter Camille, there was a painted mural on the wall with the following words:
“Everyone and everything around you is your teacher.”
For some reason, that quote hit me right in the heart and from that day on, I began to notice everyone and everything this way…..the way I used to during my childhood when I lived in Puerto Rico and spent my days on the beach, gazing at the tides, playing with anything and everything that came my way.
In many respects, planet Earth is like a school; a living classroom. If you’re aware enough to know that ‘you are here’, and that you are here for some reason, you’re more likely to “pay attention” to what comes your way.
This is one key observation that Gary Zukav and many others see as a difference between the human beings who are ‘multi-sensory’, and those who are not (yet). To note, most human beings have five ‘factory installed’ physical senses (sight, touch, sound, smell, taste). But there are millions of individuals who perceive beyond these five.
These are not things that can be proven or explained with mere words– they are known, by the individual, because they are directly accessed. This access is open and available to anyone who is willing to do the noticing, and to locate this inner-portal for themselves.
Millions of human beings are evolving on Earth right now. Our own planet is evolving too. Given this, the question for each of us is this: how will YOU spend your time?
