When we change, the world around us changesWe spend endless hours disapproving about everything around us. It can be about the people whom we meet in our day to day lives or about the circumstances we encounter. We complain as we want to see the transformation in the outer world. However, we have to understand that our complaining only empties our precious energy and does nothing to perfect the state of the world. It remains as it is. We have very little control over other people and the circumstances. However, we have full control over ourselves. Thus, the process of transformation is from within and not from outside to inside.
Change begins from within just as charity begins from home. Thus, we need to bring inner transformation to evoke change in the outer world. When we change, the world changes. When our thoughts change, our perceptions and way of looking at things change. Ignite the change within which we wish to see in the outer world.
We will develop compassion and kindness in our minds and hearts if the complete focus is inwards. We will understand others and their points of views. Thus, there will be no clash of viewpoints. There is conflict today as we feel others are wrong and we are right. Compassion will make us realize that others are not wrong but different from us. This will end the conflict and make the world a better place to live.
Does the process of changing the world begins from the inner transformation, or it has to go the other way around? Do share your viewpoints on it.
