I Want To Change The World
I know I'm not the only one to feel it.

I've been saying it since childhood, but it's not nearly as intimidating or difficult as I have always imagined.

I've plagued my mind and others with ideas on how to make this world better. But last night it came to be, so simply and beautifully.

I'm here to change the world, right now, right here.
___________________________________________________________

Last night I was very emotional and crying, I started to pray, I am not religious but do find it comforting to talk to someone, something.

I started with the serenity prayer..then the Lord's prayer, specifically when I was reciting, "Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." I got a strange feeling.

Then I said, "Bless us all, every person who has every touched my life." But then it struck me, every soul has touched my life and is a part of me. So I simply said, "Bless everyone, bless the world."

It's so easy, if you want to change the world, you must change yourself. We are all one, unity, I know this deeply.


The only way to change the world, is to change the self.

Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
___________________________________________________________

My idea of heaven is not a Christian one or that of any denomination, but I know we will be peaceful and loving and full of light. This is too simple, it's not a new idea.

Change yourself, change the world. If you are truly frustrated with the world, you can change it. Learn love, learn respect, show your light.

Good day

All change starts with you.

Gandhi said - be the change you want to see in the world.

Something like that anyway...

You are soooo right Nicole. The world is YOU! It all starts with YOU!

I once told the son of a Bishop who was on a journey looking for God, I said to him, you won't find God anywhere until you find God within you! Then you will see God everywhere!

I wish to point out one thing in your post though - you don't need to ask God for blessings, it's the nature of Divine Love to bless continuously and unconditionally. The blessing is ALWAYS there! We need to be thankful for the blessing available and ask God to help you always recognise and utilise that blessing.

I wish you a wonderous journey. hf

Wanting to change the world is highly arrogant. What if others don't want your change? We should cause as little disruption as possible in life, by living gently and minding our own business!

Attempting to change to world is lunacy... Attempting to change yourself may be more feasible, however not as easy as it sounds...

Perhaps start with little things...

You can't do sweet fawk-all!!!

People don't choose to be poor.

People don't choose to be sick.

People don't choose who they become.

Sure you can change the high heels you wear or a thong for a g-string, that's as far as your decision making goes, and is it really yours to begin with, who's deciding?

Right. So you think you can change the world just like TPTB can change the world in the way that they see is right according to their beliefs.

Either way. It's still a control issue. You can't control others. Only your self.

Re: I Want To Change The World
You can change the world. You just can't make anyone else do it too.
there is no reason why you cannot go out and make the world a little bit better for you having been here. Maybe the homeless man you buy a sandwich for will be able to get strong enough to work again, maybe the sad friend you listen to and give a hug will go home and be kinder to her husband and children, perhaps the stranger you smile at on the subway will take that home and pass it along.
It is the butterfly effect and there are a thousand ways to do it.

I have done or know people who have done the following:

sent anonymous scholarships to kids I knew needed help to go to college from my rural community.
paid an elderly couple's electric bill.
taken a sick dog to the vet for a neighbor who couldn't afford it.
sent care packages to people I have only met online... from cookies, to rent, to warm winter clothing.
just mail a card saying "You are appreciated" to someone who arranged an event for your community
stacked a dumptruck load of wood for a neighbor who broke their leg
mowd my neighbor's lawn when they were out of town for a couple weeks
sent a meal to a new mom to make her day a little easier
donated baked goods to bake sales
visited elderly friends who moved into nursing homes
taken garden produce/ home canned goods to elderly in my town who can no longer do it for themselves.
arranged a month of frozen meals for a friends family while she was having chemo
taught free swimming lessons to an entire housing project with a slew of volunteers, including a big 10 university football team

these are all little things, but I believe they do add up and somehow this world will have been a little better for me having been here. I have already been blessed greatly in return.
Peace.
