You and the world should stop thinking of changing each other. Just allow a third person to do the needful. You know who I mean: God, the only Doer.
You are the centre of that world. That is the world you live in. Now how will you change the world? By changing yourself.
Come behold this world, which is like unto an ornamented royal chariot, wherein fools flounder, but for the wise there is no attachment.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
Compassion: I don’t think that there is another world as important in marking a person’s inner growth. No other word completely conveys what this single word conveys.
If we cannot envision the world we would like to live in, we cannot work towards its creation. If we cannot place ourselves in it in our imagination, we will not believe it is possible.
If you want to leave the world better than you found it, then use your heart of compassion and your life of concern.
Learn to make the whole world your own. No one is a stranger, my child; this whole world is your own.
