Have you or anyone you know ever known bought a bumper sticker and put it on your bumper with the feeling that it didn’t quite fit?
Bumper stickers are super personal.
I know I’m supposed to like and want bumper stickers that say namaste, which I actually have one, or AUM. Those like go with what I do, but if I’m going to be 100 percent honest with you there are only two bumper stickers I really have ever wanted.
SAVE PLUTO and PAY IT FORWARD!
When I first saw the bumper sticker save pluto my heart melted. It was like the feeling of wanting to save a lost puppy who needed a home. It also brought back memories of solar system elementary school lessons, which were actually my fav when it came to using time wisely in school.
I even did a report on Pluto, and have fond memories of that tiny planet, yes planet!
One year my kids asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and I asked for the bumper sticker Save Pluto. They said they couldn’t find it.
The second bumper sticker that is like me in a nutshell is Pay It Forward. That’s just kind of what happens naturally as I’m out and about.
I have a clear memory of my son telling me when he was about 8 years old, “hey mom, how come your like nice to everyone?” I guess it was just kind of like Pay It Forward coming through.
I write this because it reminds me of what’s at the base of all our essences?
I feel like its this natural genuine, be kind to one another energy that is shared by all beings.
And yes, I’m an optimist in humanity at large!
Really letting go, really being and opening each day brings me into more vulnerable, more real ways of being in life. And things that you might not expect, like a bumper sticker with the words SAVE PLUTO bring in feelings of compassion pop out of nowhere and remind me of my humanness.
I feel so well, SAVE PLUTOISH here in San Francisco. Ok so it’s more like wow, save the homeless. The homeless are everywhere here, and I don’t understand how so many of them have gotten lost or are where they are.
I know, I know there are tons of theories on this, but at the root, it seems that as a society to have so many of them on our streets is not in alignment with humanity’s natural goodness.
Ultimately We’re all in this together.
Hmmmm we’re just humans having a spiritual experience, or we’re spiritual beings having a human experience. Something like that right! I always get it confused.
Over the holidays I’m going to nudge myself to PAY IT FORWARD, in any way I can.
May your light shine brightly, so you may share it with all who you encounter. Enjoy your life, you only have one!
