Global Change Begins With Me
There was a time when I used to fear the state of the world. The violence, greed and oppression I saw everywhere. I complained about this constantly and wondered how we as a species would ever overcome such hurdles to attain true peace and enlightenment. I wondered how one person could change the world for the better, and felt sure of our destruction of this planet and each other.
I no longer feel this way. I know that global change begins right here, in my mind, heart and actions. As I change myself those changes cause a ripple effect in the lives of those around me. Today my whole thought process is different than it was 2 years ago. I do not allow myself to dwell on negative thoughts or emotions. When I feel those things creeping into my essence, I cancel them out and replace them with positive thoughts and emotions. As I’ve changed my thinking, my social network has changed. I’ve become connected with other individuals who are also bringing about global change by starting with themselves.
