Thank you Lysassistent for those words concerning change. Ghandi is often quoted as saying "Be the change you want to see in this world", but what he actually appears to have said is this more extended version (in 1913): (my bolding)

"We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”"

I note that many threads on GLP deal with investigation into various topics in order to expose the truth, and sadly this is very much needed at this time. I also note that there are threads which purely serve as "entertainment", and though humor is essential, several of these fall into areas which do not uplift the world into something better. They do not serve as inspiration or their participants as role models. In the face of widespread corruption, abuse, disinformation and deliberate violence and ugliness, what proposals can we make? This is an invitation to complete the sentence with all seriousness, keeping the fate of all humanity in view. smile_hearFor example:

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant


This means that everything around us - whether large or small, beautiful or ugly, violent or otherwise, HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH OURSELVES. Our behaviour is the seed, and what we see around us are the fruits. The tendency to turn away and say THAT HAS NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH ME is erroneous. Such an attitude in itself is a violent act in that we are disassociating ourselves from our fellow human beings and leaving them to their "fate", when actually our every thought and action - which are immeasurably powerful - are able to make a difference.

Certainly dear, I totally second that...how can we possibly sit comfortably in a soft armchair watching the misery of others denying any connection to influence as tothe suffering -yet still expecting prosperity and good fortune as a matter of right?

If we want a nice world to live in we better start now becoming the change we it needs. Love to you Colour Being ❤️😘hf
