Wouldn’t you love to see wars end? Wouldn’t you love to see people not fighting and hurting others? Wouldn’t you love to see people not littering and being destructive to our environment? Wouldn’t you love to see (fill in the blank)?
How often do you have thoughts of changing others? Changing the world? Changing loved ones? I certainly do, but I am quickly reminded of my favorite quote, “Be the change you want to see in the world,” by Mahatma Gandhi. My second favorite quote is Margaret Mead’s “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
When you seek change, seek from within. If you see war, poverty, pollution in your outer environment, look within on how you can change. Perhaps it’s just changing your thoughts and focusing on peace, abundance, and purity. Rather than fighting war, be for peace. Rather than fighting hunger, be for abundance. Rather than fighting illness, be for health. Rather than fighting hatred, be for love. Change your perspective from a negative situation to a positive solution. Involve yourself in groups that promote positive solutions rather than fight the negative problems. I promise you, if you make those changes for yourself, your world will change.
AFFIRMATION: I am grateful for all the wonderful changes in my life.
