The Butterfly Effect

You have the power to make a difference.  I know it often does not feel that way.  It can feel like the world is going along and things happen far beyond our control or influence.  But is this true?  Have you ever heard of theMake a difference butterfly effect?  “In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependency on initial conditions in which a small change at one place in a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.” (Wikipedia) What does this mean?  It basically means that even the smallest action can have a unbelievable large impact!  It has been said that a hurricane and its formation is literally effected by a butterfly flapping its wings from a distant place several weeks earlier.  I have pasted the link here for you from Wikipedia, so you can read more:

It would be wonderful if we could accept the impact we have with even the smallest action.  Mother Teresa said it this way,

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” 
I would encourage you today to do some small thing with great love. I will join you in making a small action and see its impact.  And even if I can’t actually see it, I will have the faith to know that my actions are reverberating out far beyond what I can see and know that I am truly making a difference.

Many blessings and much love,
