“As a net is made up of a series of ties, so everything in this world is connected by a series of ties. If anyone thinks that this mesh of a net is an independent, isolated thing, he is mistaken. It is called a net because it is made up of a series of interconnected meshes, and each mesh has its place and responsibility in relation to other meshes.” -The Buddha
Think about the people who have inspired you to be what you are and more. Think about the effect your life has on others you interact with. There may be things about you that others find inspiring. The way you are single-minded in your dedication to things, perhaps. Or maybe it’s the ability you have to calm things down when stress builds up. Some of these types of things are rare and valuable to a community. They may not seem very significant to you, but the way we function in a group, the effect we have on a group, is a magnification of small things about ourselves.
For example, a positive attitude may seem trivial to the one who is feeling well. But it’s the kind of thing that can be greatly appreciated in a group situation. We all contribute to the overall mood and attitude generated by the groups we are a part of. People who bring positive energy help build morale. That makes people feel better. People appreciate those who make them feel better. They appreciate it more than we may imagine. It can be downright inspiring. In many situations, the best thing we can do is to inspire each other
