We don’t need to learn anything new when it concerns our nature. We all carry along the wisdom of our ancestors & the whole of human kind. Something inside of us knows what is best & needed if we truly make the choice to honor & respect this nature. We do need to become conscious about our choices & in today’s environment, we need to be reminded in our daily lives.
Making a different choice in our mind & actually change our behavior are two complete different animals. The first one is like a kitten & comes along easily. It’s playful & even agrees to be put in a box. But the second one, … more often looks like a tigress or a lion. We don’t get to fool around with them & we definitely don’t get to put them in a box.
Not doing what we decided on consumes a lot of energy. In a way, we’re dishonest to ourselves. We betray ourselves & having felt deeply what that feels like, it is not something I wish for anyone. On the other hand, it is only by feeling this deeply that we truly get motivated to change our behavior & make different choices.
It is part of our human nature.
” For the longest time, I thought everything was fine, but when I became conscious about my dishonesty, my own betrayal & doing myself injustice, I decided it was time to change my ways by honoring & respecting my nature.
It’s reasonable to say that nature is inviting us to change our ways. Climate change is real & a change of climate is very much needed.
We are all creatures of habit & being present with each choice only comes gradually for most of us. Even if we experience some stronger invitations, in painful or wonderful ways, we so easily fall back in the habits of our mind.
Our attention is mainly focussed on the outside & in today’s social environment, our attention is even taken hostage by all sorts of triggers. We are busy doing what we’re doing for all kind of valid reasons. But simply doing something, just because we love it as we did as a child has become “meaningless”. Nothing could be further from the truth.
What we think we love & what we truly love are not the same.
” I experimented & tried out many different way to remind myself. Most of the time however, I found myself in trouble with too many distraction & things of mind. I needed to be reminded in very practical & functional ways.
Different choices have led me to create two collections of meaningful decoration & conscious light. They serve to perfection as my daily reminders. Daily reminders of my choice to honor & respect my nature.
All creations are hand-made with a touch of light. They all reflect the essence of our human nature.
They serve all around the house & everywhere I need some light. We all have our habits & our ways, but there isn’t a day that goes by, without turning on the light.
Each time I do, I’m reminded of the intention by which it was created & each time, I’m reminded of my nature.
