Be the change.

Instead of trying to change the world, which we won’t be able to do, let's try changing ourselves. If we see someone else ruining things for the rest of us, let's look to our own sins. We are none of us without sin. That’s what we have to be honest about.

The only way to change anything is to change ourselves first. Purge the greed out of ourselves before we rant about corporate greed. Cleanse our own souls before we judge another's. There’s no right in self-righteousness, only lynch mob mentality that has to burn itself out, and in its wake so many are irrevocably wounded, even destroyed. We are only projecting our own guilt onto others.

"Be the change you want to see in the world" Mahatma Ghandi urged us. This is truly the most profound statement I’ve ever heard. Look to our own well-being. Heal ourselves. Only then can we look at others with a truly objective eye. Only then can we see the truth.

We have to find the truth in ourselves.
