Come Blow Your Horn

June 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 176

While driving home from the gym today, I witnessed a driver really letting someone have it with the use of their horn. I started thinking about the real purpose of the horn and of how we have allowed it to be an extension of ourselves, to communicate for us, expressing pleasure or displeasure. I believe the main purpose of the horn was to alert another of danger or to use caution.

Sometimes we honk as a greeting, saying "HELLO" to someone we recognize. (Often it is used to try to get the attention of someone we would like to know...

But a lot of times it is used to admonish others or show disapproval, even judgment! Wow! Who would have thought that even something so small as honking a horn, could create a catabolic force of energy that we transmit by not evening saying a word?!

That horn honking incident certainly got my attention! It makes me wonder and ask how are we choosing to show up in the most simplest of ways every day? In this particular example the 'honker' was quite irritated, self-righteous, and wanted to teach the other person a lesson... they wanted to be right! The 'honkee' was startled, which actually could have even caused an accident. Now, I'm not suggesting that we don't use our horns or certainly let one another know when to use caution... I'm merely inviting us all to look and see how our energy that we put forth in the world has power, has effect on others.

Where do you notice that the smallest change or shift in our actions might lead to a totally different experience? Why not create one that is more loving, more forgiving, more compassionate...

I am grateful for this 'horn honking' experience this morning, as it has given me yet another opportunity to wake up, think, and ask the question, "How do I choose to show up in the world?"

What if we chose to live with intention, be deliberate, come from conscious choice instead of living by default, responding instead of reacting. How might this energy we put forth affect our daily lives and maybe the lives of others...

If we can remember that we are the co-creators of our lives, that life happens through us, not to us, then we can live empowered lives knowing we are always at choice with our relationship to viewing our experiences. Things happen in life that are not in our control, we can choose not to come from victim energy but maybe ask ourselves, "Is this an opportunity for me to learn and grow?"

If you are open to the idea that our energy affects those around us and the world that we live in, then maybe our choice of actions, could have a greater affect for our collective higher good.

I invite you to notice the ways in which you might choose to show up differently. How could your conscious choices add to a more joyous experience for you and others?
