BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, October 19th, 2020 by Richard Blackstone in NUTS & BOLTS SPIRITUALITY

“Many people think that they are just one person and by themselves they won’t make any difference in changing the world. That is wrong thinking. Each and every one of us makes a difference. The whole is made up of the parts. Each part is critical to the creation of a fully functioning whole.

If you don’t think that one person makes a difference think about this. It is rush hour traffic at 7:30 a.m. and one car breaks down in the middle of the freeway. Does that one car make a difference? Has that one car affected the traffic patterns of all the other cars behind it? One lady refused to leave her seat on a bus in Mobile, Alabama and created a catalyst of change throughout this country. Do you think that Rosa Parks was in collaboration with a freedom movement at the time? Or do you think a freedom movement evolved from this woman’s one act of defiance?

One person makes a difference. What makes you think that you don’t have something to contribute? Do you think of yourself as being so small that you don’t matter in this world? I tell you this. Your thinking small does not serve the world.”

Richard Blackstone, in “Nuts & Bolts Spirituality”
