Change comes from within, on a individual level. No change can occur in the life of an individual until the INNER process of change is under way – I believe this is the same for the collective, the edge (which we may assume we are on because we have different hopes and larger dreams than most) is not on the “surface”, it is close to the core, and the change we make while firmly embedded in the ‘systems’ of this planet, are the precursors to societal change at scale.
In other words, the world in which we are immersed cannot change until we change ourselves. The thoughts, beliefs and behaviours we engage and enact in everyday life manifest the world of our experience. When we are dissatisfied, or indeed distressed with what we see “out there” in the world, are we motivated to protest? to advocate for change? or complain?
Do any of the strategies we use, effectively make the changes we wish to see actually happen?
I invite the reader to engage an inquiry along the lines of the one I have begun here in this post. Record your observations, tweak your approach, record some more. Be the best change maker you can possibly be. Which techniques are the most effective? which are inadequate?
When you try the inner change method, what happens?
I would love to hear about your discoveries as this process unfolds for you, please, make contact, share your insights, together we may just discover the key to effective change making!
