Being the change in the world
We change the world by following our own purpose.
I was taking photographs in Colchester Castle Park yesterday, and came across a robin singing. This robin was expressing its purpose of singing either to mark out its territory or to attract a mate. Just being there and singing this robin gave me pleasure, its activity impacting me.
Just by following our dreams, hopes and goals we influence others and change the world. We become like a rock thrown in the pool, the ripples of our actions echoing into eternity.
Often it is wrongly considered that we have to change the world, or others, by forcing our will upon them. Like the robin we have a purpose of living, growing and creating, so that in just doing this we make the positive changes in the world anyway.
