You Think Individually

How we’re raised to think we’re not a part of a collective.

Everyone has their own life, which is true. However, that doesn’t come at the expense of others.

In fact, interdependence as a mindset would have helped the current generation navigate this, but now we’re here stuck in hyperindependence.

So over time, what ends up happening, is that our life events are solely happening to us, and for us only.

Not exactly, because the universe doesn’t operate this way. Our lives are built on affecting each other — that’s how it plays out. We learn about each other from our strongest mirrors.

Our childhood is made up of others, our adulthood is the same. Simply thinking our bubble is the way to approach life is a misunderstanding.

Projecting and operating based off of our belief systems onto other people is also an equal misunderstanding. We may or may not come across as authentic that way. That’s not to say don’t have standards, but it’s also to say that try seeing how you can tweak your approach to life.

We are taught to fend for survival, work out of fear, and only see ourselves in the best light, not knowing that abundance is given from one person to the next.

Abundance doesn’t operate from fear, it operates from everyone knowing there’s enough for everyone.
