“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ~Jalaluddin Rumi
If we desire the world to be a better place, we need to be realistic about how to navigate these turbulent waters. Before set sailing on this voyage to “save” the world, what if I told you YOU ARE the world.
What if I told you we aren’t here to place judgment on whether this world even NEEDS saving? What if the world is exactly where it is meant to be? What if this contrast we experience is creating an opportunity to fine tune ourselves along with fine tuning all of our patterns? How about EACH OF US go on self-exploration voyage? In that, we break through the pieces that prevent us from the freedom of our true nature, our truest expression.
I know when we observe the world today we are greeted by layers upon layers of suffering. Each of us have the power to change the world by changing ourselves. If we made a personal pledge to ourselves and worked on our OWN back yard instead of monitoring our neighbor’s yard, we could gain on the turmoil we experience. We create our reality, so step back, what is it you are seeing? What feelings are you experiencing over and over? What are the patterns keeping you in the world in which you live? Where in the contrast can you most benefit in this experience?
Don’t become distracted by the fears of others. Make time to discover your true nature. Learn to live with compassion, unconditional love and forgiveness. Let go of the things you cannot control.
In order for each of us to experience this for ourselves we must begin by turning inward.
Start by accepting you are perfect just as you are, with every “flaw” as perfect as the last. Acknowledge it is a choice to be where you are, you are not a victim in any situation that comes your way. Be empowered by knowing you choose everything you experience for the purpose of the soul’s expansion. Forgive yourself and forgive others in matters of the past. Honor YOU by realizing YOU are valuable and worthy and allow unconditional love to flow freely toward you. Love yourself and others without “expectations, rules or conditions.”
When we acknowledge and accept ourselves, we can forgive and honor who we were, who we are, and who we will become. Don’t get re-involved in the past, acknowledge, accept, honor, forgive, and love yourself in all matters.
Believe in your personal power and within that you will change the world.
Many blessings and happy creating.
