A coined statement given to us by Mahatma Gandhi.
A statement that resonates with so many people today
as the world continues to "wake up" to new information about
multiple discoveries that are shifting the perception of the masses
with regards to what's really happening on the planet, and how we
can change it.
Today, new technologies have been developed that could replace fossil fuels, whether it be solar powered, zero point energy or something else.
Hemp could be used to manufacture
bottles, paper and thousands of other "necessities" that could be
made without destroying the planet and destroying the rain forests.
The point being, solutions are seemingly readily available, and it's
unfortunate that they always have to go through a long process of
approval and countless lengths of red tape before they see the light
Over the past few years, millions of people all over the world have opposed the manufacture of these foods and pesticides, and a number of studies have surfaced showing their potential dangers to both human health and the environment.
This is why so many countries across the planet have completely banned or put severe restrictions on them.
As a result of new information coming to light, more
and more people are no longer purchasing this food, they are not
participating and by doing so, this acts as one example - out of
many - of "being the change."
Firstly, it's the realization, recognition and worldview perception that you (yourself) are one of the, if not the greatest agent of change for the entire planet.
It can be a difficult concept to grasp, as some might ask,
The answer is quite simple.
If we take our previous example of GMOs and how many people are no longer purchasing them, it exemplifies how individuals themselves can "be the change" by refusing to participate in GM food consumption.
As a result of people doing this, as mentioned
earlier, GM food is no longer accepted in a number of countries
around the world.
Drop the triggers to any violent tendencies that you
may have, and choose to not participate in any acts of violence
whether it be physical, emotional or negative thoughts.
It says exactly what it means. Too many of us are
awakening to new information, yet fail to change our habits,
continually participating in something we feel in our hearts is
For some reason, they feel the need to do such things, and point out such things, forgetting the fact that the ones they are pointing fingers at could very well be practicing what they are preaching.
Which brings me to my next point.
Practicing What You Preach Is a
Process - That's Why It's Called "Practice"
Major changes in your life will not come with ease
and comfort. A perfect example for me was eating meat. The year I
decided to stop, it was a process, not something that happened over
night but eventually I was completely successful.
Are you practicing? Are you even trying?
Again, change might not happen over night, but you
will get there if the you are truly practicing. It's a process and
it's all about what you feel deep within yourself.
Maybe something that lays dormant inside of you that you are not addressing.
