Change is constant, but that doesn’t make it easy. On a daily basis, we believe “what is easy” than “what is true and right”.
That is why , change doesn’t seem easy for us always. Does your mind choose to believe things consciously or does it pushes you to believe what you believe as you are not embracing change?. If you are doing the latter, let me alert you that you are bound to stagnate and lose ground as your approach to change is unlawful to the law of life. If you are resisting change,it attracts negativity towards you. I mean change is gonna happen anyway albeit you are not co-operating. So,don’t mess up!
Be compatible and maintain your wavelength with the changes you undergo. Because,change is easy for someone who is open to embrace it ,for it is difficult as it breaks the heart to make difference in people who resist it.
During the 1930’s, a young boy had become obsessed with eating a lot of sugar. His mother was very upset with this. But no matter how much she scolded him and tried to break his habit, he continued to satisfy his sweet tooth. Being totally frustrated, she decided to take her son to see Mahatma Gandhi who was the boy’s idol.
She had to walk many miles across the country, for hours under scorching sun to finally reach Gandhi’s ashram. There, she recounted her difficult journey and shared with Gandhi her unpleasant situation:
“Bapu (Father), my son eats too much sugar. It is not good for his health. Would you
please advise him to stop eating it? ”
Gandhi listened to the woman carefully, thought for a while and replied:
“Please come back after two weeks. I will talk to your son.”
The women looked confused. Then she took the boy by the hand and went home. She made the long journey home and in two weeks time made it once again as Gandhi requested. When they arrived, Gandhi looked directly at the boy and said:
“Boy, you should stop eating sugar. It is not good for your health.”
The boy nodded and promised he would not continue this habit any longer. The
boy’s mother was puzzled. She turned to Gandhi and asked,
“Bapu (Father), Why didn’t you tell him that two weeks ago when I brought him here to see you?”
Gandhi smiled and whispered in her ears.
“Mother, that time I was not qualified to advise the little one
Because I too, was same like him, eating a lot of sugar myself two weeks ago.
“You Must First Be The Change You Want To See In This World” – Mahatma Gandhi.
Change is not about fighting the old, it is just to focus your energy on building the New. Change is a synonym to wonders and miracles.Do the changes you want to do right now, for it is only progress,never a regress. Do not settle for underdevelopment and inadequacy.
Here is a beautiful poem (dated 1100 A.D.) written by an unknown Monk, that I’d like to share for you. 😉
“I wanted to change the World
When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world,
I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.
When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.
Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world”. Author: Unknown Monk 1100 A.D.
Love yourself! Love your neighbour!! Embrace change! Wake Joy!!
Yesterday I was clever ,so I wanted to change the world.Today Iam wise,so Iam changing myself. -Rumi
