Many people see the change they wish would happen on the planet and wait for it to occur. They have forgotten that they ARE the one. They are waiting to arrive. All of us come with a plan of how this life is going to unfold and with the gifts we have to share in the world’s transformation.
The biggest changes in society do not come from government or political intervention, but from everyday people like you and me. People who speak up and say, “Hey, this has to change!” As they begin to create a change, they find others right beside them pitching in and making a difference. Some people are better at leading and others at following. We need both in the world right now!
Nepal is a great example. Some of us will be called to donate money, some to help collect supplies, and others will fly over and help physically. I cannot help with shoveling or picking up boulders and concrete, but I can choose to send money I might have spent on an outfit or a dinner out on the town. I can choose to share what I have with those who are trying to feed a family or find a tent to shelter their children. We have so much and it is within each of us to help in any way that we can.
If you had a million dollars in the bank, giving $10,000 to help would feel like you made a difference, and the ones with millions will share. Most of us don’t have millions in the bank waiting to donate, but we do each have something. If everyone gave $10 or $100, we would see it all adding up and helping to erase hunger and need off the planet. You don’t get to decide what the millionaires do with their money but you can choose what you do with yours.
Decide what you can do to help change the world. I pick several organizations I believe in and donate what I can. If I had millions I would have a blast aiding other countries as well as our own. I start with what I can do and when a Nepal crisis comes up, I squeeze out a little more. If it were my family, I would pray someone would help us when we were helpless. I cannot sit by and hope others will rally to the call. I think each of us feels compelled to help those in true need. Try giving up dinner out twice this month so that others around the world can eat, even if it is a bowl of rice.
By giving we do receive. Even a dollar makes a huge difference to someone who is starving. Sometimes they are in our own backyard. Begin to be the change you want to see. Truer words were never spoken. Namaste❦
