Today, I realised something. I realised that I cannot change the world.

The only changes I can make, are changes within myself. – Well, I knew that already. But I always thought, if I make the changes, I want to see in the world for myself and thus bring them into the world, I am making a change and that this equals changing the world. I realise, now, that this is a misconception, a false believe that has been presented to me a while ago.

I cannot change the world. I can only change myself, my perspective, my behaviour. And this is not equal to changing the world.


I cannot change the world. I can only change myself.

I can make changes to what I bring into the world. I can make choices that I want to see in the world. I can behave in a way that mirrors the behaviour I would like to encounter. This way I contribute to the world and maybe I add to the potentials that can be experienced in the world.

But the choice of what we want to experience is an individual one. No one has the right to make this choice for another. So, in some way it would even be overbearing to attempt and change the world. The world is what it is. And it has the right to be exactly that.

If  want to see changes, I can only start with me. In the best case, my healthy choices inspire others to make their own healthy choices – and maybe I can help bringing in more potentials for those choices. But that is only my idea of the best case. And perhaps I can bring change into the world. But I cannot change the world as such.

I cannot change the world. Only the world can change the world. And I can only change myself.


How are you changing the world? Can you?

Are you ready to shine a bright light of awareness on the path of beingness, today?

Much Love,
Steffi
