EAL 07: Becoming the Change You Want to See in the World
It is so easy to find ourselves complaining about what is wrong in our world - because there is plenty that is wounded, out of balance and even in crisis mode in our world.
However, at times like this it is more important than ever to ask ourselves if we are more focused on finding someone to blame… or whether we are also willing to see if we are practicing some of the same choices that we resent in others? This kind of self-evaluation takes real courage.
However, if we want to see true healing and transformation in the world, that change must start with you and with me!
