"if you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibrations"
The above quote from Telsa is what I (try) to live by everyday. We are fragile human beings with a delicate balance to accommodate and assimilate the good, bad and the ugly throughout our lives. I find it suffocating and limited to believe that our existence in this universe is just limited to me, my body and my surroundings. Thanks to my Indian origins, I grew up with the strong notion that everything in this universe is interconnected. This is part thanks to my scientist and spiritualist parents, an odd mix one might think. But when I read what the quantum physicist are proving today: that we are (and everything else) is ultimately a ball of vibrating energy, it doesn’t seem odd at all, does it?
Our everyday lives, our respective societies and the environment always reinforces this notion of each one to his/her own, the individualistic struggle making it so easy to conform to the same. I strongly oppose this belief. Sitting at our boutique (on most days) – The Art of Sustainable Luxury – I meet and experience the weirdest of co-incidences with random people and clients walking in, that plain old logical reasoning doesn’t suffice to explain the unusualness of it all.
Speaking of energies and their interconnectedness, a few weeks ago, our non-profit project partner in India wrote me. I could feel the desperation and sadness of the founder in every word. He wrote, ”it is Diwali (equivalent to Christmas for Indians) next week and the organization doesn’t have enough money to pay salaries to the community workers (working on the grassroots).” One of their biggest funders delayed the transfer because of bureaucratic reasons. He asked if I (we) could help?! We at pink maharani, were also very very low with cashflow at this point, as the Christmas season was just beginning. However, believing in this universal interconnectedness we transferred a few thousand CHF, as this money was more needed in India than here. On that sleepless night, wide awake at 3am, as I wondered how we would manage our low cashflow situation. I check my messages to see that one of our sales girls Sumaya's text, “a gentleman walked into the boutique today and loved the concept of sustainable luxury so much that he bought quite a bit.” Guess what the amount he bought for? Pretty much the same amount that we transferred to our NGO partners that same morning. Maybe this is coincidence or maybe not.
As I read this message at 3 am, tears of joy rolled down my cheek, reassuring me once again no matter what you are doing, who or where you are. If you do and act with the right intentions as bearers of light, even in the toughest of times, you will be taken care of from forces beyond reason.
Each of YOU are bearers of light too, you have the power to decide in what kind of a world you want to live in. With every CHF/€ you spend this Christmas, for yourself or as a gift, you are making a conscious decision on, what kind of energy you want to attract into your lives and what kind of a world you want to live IN. Thus choose wisely.
