Mission 2: Observing the Life Within Us
We have critical information for you from Agent HQ...
Agents, yesterday we started to explore the idea that we are living in the rare space between two stories. When people no longer believe in where their Story of the World is taking them, it begins to fall apart. When this happens, a space is left behind, which actually allows for something more vibrant and beautiful to grow instead.
In fact, it takes a lot of time and energy to keep a story in the world that doesn’t work or want to be here anymore. We can actually observe this effect happening all around us.
Observe a time, for example, where you had to do a job or activity you didn’t love or want to do. You may have done the job, but how did you feel afterward? Exhausted? Stressed? Did time feel as if it dragged on and on and on?
On the other hand, when you do something that really interests you, how do you feel? Energized? Alive? Do you even remember to look at the clock? It makes a difference if you believe in what you are doing, then the obstacles, hurdles, and negativism does not derail you from your path.
Our mission today, Agents, is to observe and interact with what fills you with life and energy, and what doesn’t.
Do you dislike maintaining your lawn? (Who says we need grassy lawns, anyway?)
Do you miss seeing butterflies in your neighborhood? (Why not turn your lawns into patches of wildflowers so they will return?)
Notice how you feel throughout the day, and where your mind wanders to. You can make a list to keep track of your experiences. We’re going to return to your observations for tomorrow’s mission!
The Champion Spotlight illuminates outstanding organizations and individuals around the world whose work is contributing to a more peaceful, just, and compassionate planet. These entities are known as Champions of Compassion.
We are excited for Day 3 of the Unity Games Relay to highlight 9/11 Day!
