Newtons 3rd Law

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is Sir Isaac Newton’s Third Law, and a very important life lesson. Everything you do will have a consequence to it. A lot of time that consequence not only affects you, but it affects everyone around you. Think about – every decision you’ve made this week directly affected you and everyone connected to you. That is a lot of responsibility, but it is definitely a reality. Let’s put this in proper perspective, a man decided to go to the bar last night and drink without a designated driver. He drinks 4 beers and feels he is sober enough to drive home, just slightly inebriated he’s not able to focus enough on driving and runs in the back of a car stopped at a stopped light. The first thing he thinks is how he will lose his license or his job, but fails to realize the time, energy, and possible physical health lost by the victim of the car accident. This is the perfect scenario of how are choices will affect everyone around us. Now let’s look at Newton’s Third Law in a different light – if we can make choices that will negatively impact someone’s life, then we can make choices that will positively impact someone’s life. I call it The Responsibility of Life – it is where you understand your purpose, and know that walking in it will change this world for the good, so you live consciously making decisions that further your purpose and cause ripples of good throughout the universe that serve the needs of others. Whew, that was a mouthful! Let’s go over this again, when you understand the weight of your existence, you’ll do things consciously that will further your purpose and subsequently positively affect everyone around you. There is a hole in the universe when you are not on your post. If we could just get everyone to get on their post, it would change the trajectory of the world we live in.
