Changing the World

What if all our actions were peace?

What if we never reacted in fear?

What if we put aside anger and judgement

and acted with confidence here?

What if we trusted instead of protected?

What if we reached out instead of turned inward?

What if we looked upon others as people who

had circumstances that could not be overcome?

What if we took little steps to include them?

What if we took little steps to meet their needs?

What if we took steps to enrich their lives?

We would find our lives become that much richer.

What are the actions which will bless all of us?

What are the actions which will enrich all of us?

What are the actions which will take care of all of us?

What actions show where we live in our hearts?

What will it look like when heart-living is our way?

What will it look like when all are important?

What will it feel like when all know they are included?

What will it feel like for all to be safe?

Hope and Light

Where do our resources come from?

They are within.

These resources are always available and unlimited.

The power based on deceit and manipulation will yield only a limited kind of support.

It will run out.

When it meets an obstacle based on hope and light, it knows it is doomed.

Hope leads to thoughts of solutions, community, individuality, value.

We all know who we are deeply, inside.

When we listen to that feeling, we are guided to act on the things that bring hope and light.

Because the deep identity is always there, nothing can ever take it away.

It exists, we exist.

We naturally express that identity and its light.

We learn to take action when it becomes intolerable to be anything else.

We are drawn to those who know that feeling and know its power.

That is how we change our world.
