"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
I took a moment to reflect upon that statement, it truly is an empowering and insightful statement! What displeases you about our society, world, town etc? How are you acting and reacting differentially to improve the situation around you? Essentially we must reflect our visions in order to make them a reality. That means leading by example, actions speak louder than words and all that good stuff. If we truly desire positive change we must be the pioneers.
Today I find myself surrounded with chaos and turmoil. Not in my own personal life but in the lives of my coworkers and friends. All the conflict and drama seems to be resulting from the lack of consideration for other view points and experiences.
People tend to only see things from their own perspective, this is a common issue in our society. It is difficult to try and see things from another person’s point of view. The result is everyone simply running around reacting to situations with only themselves in mind.
Considering another persons feelings, situation or thoughts rarely happens. One person feels they were “wronged” and they react by “wronging” another and the cycle just repeats. Hundreds of people are just going around blindly reacting to situations, jumping to conclusions and punishing each other.
The bottom line is there are bad people and situations all around us. We can become bitter and jaded or we can be the change we wish to see in the world.
What ways are you changing the world today?
