If our minds are filled with our egos and smallness and triviality, that is what we will see. We'll see chores as something we need to tick off a list, our job as something to do simply to survive, our days to be filled with activities to pass the time. We see situations as competition, differences as separation. We constantly try to get ahead of others.
If our minds are focused on something bigger than us, be it a cause we are pulled towards, or a connection we have with other beings, or our devotion to the divine or God, then that is what we will see. We'll treat our chores with joy bec we enjoy doing them every moment, we'll see our jobs as an act of service, we'll use our days by filling it up with actions that help bring more peace and happiness in the world. Differences become small miracles, as they both fascinate us and draw us in.
Ram Dass said, everywhere you look, you see what you're looking for. So why look for trivialities, when we can see the divine? Why be stuck in smallness when we can choose greatness? Why focus on ego when we can bring our hearts and minds to devotion to what is bigger than us?
