Recently, talking to my oncologist about the treatment she is prescribing for my breast and bone cancer, she inquired about my mental attitude and outlook on life in general. It was not too surprising as everyone has been encouraging me to “stay positive” in order to beat this new health challenge. This idea of outlook on life brings me to the subject of how significant does the average person think his or her life is? I am by no means a celebrity or “star”; never had my name in lights [well, actually my name has been but it was for that other Paris (Hilton)], but like so many others, I am striving to be and do something meaningful…to be significant.

Needless to say, I believe that each of us, whether notable or notorious, lives a significant life. When we consider all the people we touch on a day-to-day basis, by saying hello, smiling, shaking hands, showing appreciation, giving a nod or thumbs up, a hug, or prayer, or even if we’ve been less than friendly, we are affecting the universal spiritual field around us and making a change in the dynamics of humanity. Like pebbles thrown in a pond, the ripples of our actions go forth into eternity. We are significant.

Each person brings something unique and rare. No two are alike! The thought of it boggles the mind. We should, therefore, see ourselves as individual representatives of the whole of mankind, and treat others in that same light. When we come…and go…we have changed the world and it will never be the same again. How can anyone be less than positive with that thought in mind?

Thank you, Yaron, for your lovely comment. It is my pleasure to join those who know and will accept the responsibility of seeking peace. It is the answer to most of our problems. If we can see ourselves for the wonders that we uniquely are, life would be so much more of what the intentions were for us in the first place. God bless.
