When I heal myself, I bring peace to the world

When I heal myself, I bring peace to the world

When we look at the world, we often see many things we wish to change. It’s frustrating to feel so powerless when faced with seemingly irreversible problems – climate change, war, famine. Some of us fight to stand up for the causes we believe in. Others choose to get on with our lives, resigned to the impossibility of making any real difference. Yet there is a way that we can all contribute to transforming the world we live in: by transforming ourselves.

When I change my perception, something incredible happens: the world changes. We really do not realize how powerful we are; our perception creates our reality. If we are always focusing on what we perceive as wrong, on fear and lack and separation, that is what we will see. When we start to focus on appreciation, we become more aware of the incredible gifts life is bringing us in every moment. This does not mean we deny the challenges at hand; it just means we focus on valuing what we have, and by doing so, we bring more love into our lives.

As your consciousness expands, it is natural to become more caring about the environment. When we experience victim consciousness, we feel separate from everyone. We experience lack, and so we try to take as much as we can. But when we perceive union, we experience an abundance, and we naturally begin to value all around us. When our perception changes from us-and-them to one of union, all behaviors based in separation just dissolve. We don’t have to do anything in order for this to happen; only heal ourselves.

Want to make a difference? Change yourself. Want to see more joy, peace and love in the world? Find ways to give more of that in your life. What we focus on grows. Let’s choose for the love.

How true. Healing begins with the self. A matter of attitude too and the right perspective. What you think, is what will happen. The self-fulfilling prophecy!

Is it so complicated as to need rules and laws? Again the ego deceives. The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle. What is so profound is the simplicity...

oops only have Law number seven to go .
7. The Law of Transmutation.
Enlightenment leading to Evolution. The desire to transmute influences Being. When the six previous Laws are in place at any level, the ability to transition to the next level by evolving the experiences as a whole into consciousness.
