What difference do you make?

Each time I am frustrated or exhausted, each time I am distracted by daily chores, each time I am overwhelmed with emotions, each time I become too focused on my own life, each time I begin to forget why I am here I try to remember the power each of us has within our own spirits.

I have the ability to make someone feel special. I have the ability to make someone feel important. I have the ability to make someone feel needed. I have the ability to make someone feel wanted. I have the ability to make someone feel loved.

I teach to try to do this to as many children as possible, but in reality this is simply the effect we have on each person we meet. What difference did you make?

Exactly. Sometimes I think those are more of words for self-comfort. That our existence points to something else more important but we haven't discover it. Yet.

Words for comfort?

Well, I feel I should clarify that I can't actually force someone to feel a certain way, but I can certainly help them and guide them and if their heart is open to it--and especially with children they often need to feel that way--then it can happen. The english language is just not very good and coveying these types of things.

I agree our existance is much more than it appears, but then I see this world as the illusion imposed upon our souls; we are only here and partly of this world. Complex simplicity. Something like that, I think I'm getting a migraine so I hope this comment came out coherent...if not I'll just retype it later.

World as illusion imposed upon our souls...

What exactly do you mean?

To me it's like this world is the dream while the "dream world" is what is real. Who we are as spirits is who we really are; free from the confines of this world, free from the vices of society, free from the intolerant ignorance, free from the difficulty and strife, etc. Yet while we are here, our spirit has all of these things imposed upon it, but none of it is who we really are...this world is just an illusion, albeit a very realistic one.
