What Change Do You Want To See?
So you want to see change? You want to see peace in the world? It all starts with you. Be the change that you want to see in the world. By using universal spiritual principles, you will connect with like-minded others who align and vibrate with the same energy.
There is a powerful little book entitled Your Life Is Your Message - Finding Harmony with Yourself, Others & the Earth by Eknath Easwaran. He tells a story that took place during one of Mahatma Gandhi’s periods of sacred silence. When Gandhi’s train was pulling slowly out of the station, a reporter ran up to him and asked for a message to take back to his people. Gandhi’s reply was a hurried scrawled line on a scrap of paper: “My life is my message.”
Mahatma Gandhi modeled practical idealism, which means that you can practice the ideal in every aspect of life through a “continuing, persistent effort to transform ill will into good will, self-interest into compassion” rather than calling for great acts of heroism. These are two important factors in bringing about change in the world…starting with you!
This practical and inspiring book shows you how to live in harmony with your highest ideals. Enjoy this excerpt:
"You can find harmony within yourself by gaining mastery of your internal environment, a world within of thoughts, desires, and feelings as real as the world outside.
You can build harmony in your relationships with family, neighbors, and colleagues by learning to love more fully than you had thought possible.
You can establish harmony with the physical environment by living your life to ensure, in every way, a bright future for all our children.
You can learn to make your life a message of hope, love, and purpose." Eknarth Easwaran
