You must be the change

Mahatma Gandhi said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”.

Never was this a more important message. Yoga teaches us to take responsibility for our own actions and for our own relationships. If we want to see peace established in the world, then we need to establish it in our everyday lives. If we want to see more sensible and reasonable dialogue in world affairs and politics, then we must introduce it into our own lives. Every interaction with others can be kind, thoughtful and peaceful.

The new year always feels like a clean start. It is an opportunity to make resolutions and to make changes. Lets light a candle in our own corner of Mother Earth. If there is enough of us engaged with this idea, we can surely change the world!

Love is the life force

Must I seek and strive to find the real me?

No. Stop trying so hard and just be.

Must I wander and search to find my place?

No. Stay really still and fill this space.

Must I talk, shout and debate to be heard?

No. Be silent now. Love needs not one word.

 

There is no need to journey, you are already here.

There is no need to struggle, your purpose is quite clear.

There is no need to rush, just love the ones you hold dear.

 

Love is always the answer to our questions and doubts.

Love is always the answer, that’s what our life is about.

We are here to learn, to unite and to find truth.

Love is who you are, where you are and love is the proof.

Love is the life-force, the prana.

Love is the glue, the cement.

Peace will be found and established

When love fills your every moment.
