"Do you think you’re important"?

i wonder how many times i’ve reminded people to buy milk just by carrying a carton. i think it’s important that i reminded them. i think there are lots of pups that are happy i took the time to pat them. and lady beetles that are glad i took them outside where they belong. i like smiling at strangers too because maybe they’re having a bad day and needed a strangers smile to help them a little. i think it helps and i think it’s important and i think i’m important. everyone is important.

"When you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You’re too this, or I’m too this.’ That judging mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are."
