“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Someone once told me that if you want to change the world, you must first change yourself. That has always stayed with me. If you want people to be more loving, you yourself must love more. If you want people to be less selfish, you yourself must give more. If you believe that the human race should be more united, you must first be more accepting.
When a person becomes the change they want to see, they send this energy into the universe. Eventually, that change in energy you have made within yourself will influence those around you. Then it will influence those around them and so forth.
One thing I first noticed as I was beginning to evolve was that some of my friends began to evolve as well. Those of which that did not change or evolve with me went their separate ways; which is fine. It didn’t bother me. I understood that their soul was not ready yet and that not everyone will change overnight. One must learn to trust the process and let go of expectation. Those who left will make a change in their own time. Like an ocean, there will always be another wave for them to catch.
