How many times have you heard the expression “quality over quantity”? Unfortunately the deeper meaning behind it is gravely overlooked by millions of human beings. Quality doesn’t just mean accumulating designer clothes, 5 star holidays or sports cars. The spiritual realization behind “quality over quantity” is that every action we take throughout the day ought to be honoured and given our full attention. Saving “special” occasions to bring beauty and excellence into the stream of life is a poor and shabby way to live.
The more quality you place into the most subtle tasks you undertake throughout the day, the more you will set a vibrational frequency of excellence that flows into whatever you do. Observe a human being when they make a cup of tea. Do they rush and pour water all over the kitchen table or do they gently serve it with calmness? When you are listening to another human being, are you thinking about other objectives or are you present and honouring their engagement with you? By placing quality into everyday activities, we carry a feeling of well-being, affluence, abundance and inner-peace. This serene energy will dictate what future occurrences unfold.
In another words, if we are sloppy with our “less important” tasks, the future will be shallow and have low quality outcomes. The means is just as worthy as the ends, simply because they are one. The feeling you put into the “means” dictates the feeling of the “end”. The next time you find yourself rushing and dishonouring what is happening right now, hoping to “get” somewhere else, pause for a moment, breathe deeply and give your full attention to what you are doing. This is the art of paying attention to detail.
