Do you realize? You have more personal power than you likely know to change the world. The news is rife with division, hate, and fear. Some people just wait and hope for an external power or institution to cure the problems “out there”, so they can finally find some peace and happiness within themselves. They have a long wait.
If we don’t care enough about the world to personally get in the game, it will slip through our fingers like quicksand. It begins with one random act of kindness, a single word of compassion, a step upward on the stairway of understanding.
It’s one bit of love at a time. It ripples outward, and it builds. It comes from you, and me, and anyone else who chooses to participate, instead of just complaining about how bad things are. It’s what the ancient Greeks called “agape” – a selfless love for humanity – and the world sorely needs more of it.
Adopt a global consciousness. Choose to be a living example of love, compassion, and understanding. Work to bridge the divides you encounter. As Ghandi said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
Because in the final analysis, that which you give to the world, you ultimately give to yourself.
