Can you use the Butterfly Effect to create a kinder world?

Resonance and Light poster "Butterfly Effect".

MIT meteorology professor, Edward Lorenz, in repeating a weather simulation rounded off the number of one of the variables. That difference was minuscule, only .000127. You'd think that something so little is no big deal. In reality, that tiny little change in what went into his program created a drastic change in the weather pattern his program simulated.

Based on his work *, in 1969 Lorenz suggested that the flap of a butterfly's wings might ultimately cause a tornado. The idea came to be known as the “butterfly effect.” Put differently, small changes can have large consequences or (with reference to chaos theory) a minuscule localized change in a complex system can have large effects elsewhere.

If the smallest changes can indeed have great consequences, it stands to reason paying attention to what we program into our lives, the things that drive our minute choices, is a good idea. Even a small change in what we resonate with, in what we focus on, in the resultant choices, can have a large effect as it spins its way into our life story.

Make your next minuscule choice a kind never know what fabulous great thing you may have put in motion.

* In his 1963 paper "Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow" in Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences, Edward Lorenz stated: Two states differing by imperceptible amounts may eventually evolve into two considerably different states.

Cultivate your Resonance and shine your Light in a world that needs your gifts.

Advocating for #kindness in all aspects of how we resonate with ourselves and each other,
