Being the Change
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) said it well.
Be, not do or have something particular. Be, right here, right now, as we are. Being ourselves, in line with our deepest values and beliefs.
The change, of behaviour towards others if we want a kinder society; in the way we consume energy if the environment is our concern; or in any area of our sphere of influence for whatever is near our heart.
You want, yes really want, desire, long for and are prepared to be proactive to bring about.
To see, today, tomorrow, in our lifetime. And even if we never get to see it, at least it won’t be said we didn’t strive for what we believed in.
In the world, our world the only one we have. Waiting for others might mean we wait a very long time… for it to never happen.
If we were asked, could we say we are being the change we want to see in the world? Tough question I know. How would you answer?
