“I see that many of you are sincere in your desire to fight injustice. In this respect, I’d like to tell you something important.” Everyone was all ears. “My friends, remember that when it comes to improving life on earth, there is something much more powerful and much more efficient than the will.” Everybody was intensely curious now to know what important statement Nathan was going to pronounce! “It has to do with understanding the world around us! Every action we undertake is dependent on that. If this understanding is rooted in the source of our thoughts and feelings, it will guide us well.” Again Nathan paused a moment to let the meaning of his words be understood. Finally, a man in a suit asked him: “How do we know what’s at the source of our thoughts and feelings?” “By reflecting on what our real motivation is,” Nathan answered, “For that, we need to ask ourselves this question: what is the ultimate goal that I’m trying to attain?” Nathan paused for a moment and then continued with fervor: “I know that you’re questioning and wondering about the best strategy to employ in organizing events, but is every one of you deeply convinced of the real reason for these events?” He paused again. The public was completely still, mesmerized by every word. “Ask yourselves ‘what do I think is an ideal world’, and ‘how can I contribute to it’. These are the questions that if you spend enough time on them, will give you a deep understanding of things.” Nathan stood up, and ended his speech with strong and poignant sentences, interspersed with long pauses, which had the effect similar to that of collective hypnosis on the listeners: “Those who are truly looking for the good will recognize each other! They will feel a powerful connection between each other and will then be able to use their full potential! Their actions will serve as examples for others, and little by little, this will lead to a transformation of the world, until it finally becomes a welcoming and inspiring place for all!”
Truly, to change anything on the external, requires a change on the internal. Perhaps not a change, but an awareness of who we are and what matters above all, Love.
Being aware, brings peace and harmony, and that influences the outside. Our thoughts, our actions, our words become ones of Love and Peace, and that has the effect of inspiring others.
THAT’s how change is made… ~Grace
