A photo with text appeared on Facebook today. Here is my response:
This is a Like, not a Love, because of the word 'impressed.' I would suggest being not impressed by anything. Feel it in yourself. What happens inside when you are impressed? Are you giving your power away? Putting emphasis on something that appears to be outside yourself? Does that diminish the felt sense of being grounded in who and what you really are?
So yes, don't be impressed by money, followers, degrees and titles. View them from a more complete perspective, and with neutrality. They are what they are, but with no intrinsic importance. I would add, to not be impressed by sacred sites, apparent leadership, or artistic talent, but to be appreciative and honoring ~ from a more complete perspective, and with neutrality. How could we re-state the second sentence on the image? As an example, 'I am grateful for kindness, humility, integrity, and generosity. I honor it in myself and others.'
