changing the world

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on peace, choice, changing the world, god, life beliefs, and acknowledgement

There are five things you can choose now if changing your world, and the self-destructive direction in which it is moving, is what you wish to achieve.

1. You can choose to acknowledge that some of your old beliefs about God and about Life are no longer working.
2. You can choose to acknowledge that there is something you don not understand about God and about Life, the understanding of which will change everything.
3. You can choose to be willing for a new understand of God and Life to now be brought forth, and understanding that could produce a new way of life on your planer.
4. you can choose to be courageous enough to explore and examine the new understanding, and , it it aligns with your inner truth and knowing, to enlarge your belief system to include it.
5. You can choose to live your lives as demonstrations of your highest and grandest beliefs, rather than as denials of them.

These are the Five Steps to Peace, and if you take them, you can shift everything on your planet.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by Marian Anderson on people, changing the world, change, change the world, the world, hesitation, dong good, and courage

There are many persons ready to do what is right because in their hearts they know it is right. But, they hesitate, waiting for the other fellow to make the first move--- and he, in turn, waits for you. The minute a person whose word means a great deal dares to take the open-hearted and courageous way, many others follow.

Marian Anderson (1897 - 1993)

A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on love, changing the world, simplicity, and duty

It’s very simple; it’s not complicated. If you want to go home and complicate it with the mind and say, “Oh I can’t do this,” then you’ll never do it. But if you simply accept the truth and do, then it will come very quickly. Don’t let the mind complicate your life; always be simple. Start off by doing simple acts of love. To people and friends whom you haven’t said, “I love you,” to in a long time, send an email out tomorrow: “How are you? I’m just sending a loving thought to you.” You’ll see what happens. When you leave a shop, turn around and tell the person, “Have a nice day.” Then you’ll see how you change that person’s point of view and how happy they feel. Wear a smile on your face when you walk the street and see how many people will smile back at you. Have a wilful feeling that everybody should feel love today in a small way. It starts by you doing something in a small way to make someone very happy. If you know something is going to make someone happy, then go out of your way and make them happy. That is our duty as human beings. Can you imagine if everyone lived with this principle? Everyone you talk to would be trying to make you happy. How beautiful is this?

A Quote by Howard Thurman on changing the world

Don't ask what the world needs.  Rather ask - what makes you come alive?  Then go and do it!  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on warriorship, bravery, and changing the world

The essence of warriorship, or the essence of human bravery, is refusing to give up on anyone or anything. We can never say that we are simply falling to pieces or that anyone else is, and  we can never say that about the world either. Within our lifetime there will be great problems in the world, but let us make sure than within our lifetime do disasters happen.  We can prevent them.  It is up to us.

A Quote by John Eliot on changing the world, greatness, and genius

History, though, shows us that the people who end up changing the world—the great political, scientific, social, technological, artistic, even sports revolutionaries—are always nuts, until they’re right, and then they’re geniuses.
