Changes: Turn and Face the Strain
Vaishali discusses how each individual has the power to change and contribute to the world.
Imagine how unsinkable your life would feel, if you only recognized one power: Love. You cannot be giving your power away to the outer world and be aligned with the unlimited power of Love at the same time. One would neutralize the other. These Eastern canons of wisdom speak about the Earth as the ultimate classroom in self-realization. If you can be present in today’s world with all its mind and emotional twisting gyrations, and claim allegiance to only one power, the belief in yourself as a Divine force of Love, then all the ugliness and heinous intentions in the cesspool of all that is wrong in this classroom will have conspired to work for your personal liberation.
Let’s examine this on the most practical level. If at the end of the day you did not save one endangered species; you have not stopped the government from swearing in one more corrupt politician; you had not discovered the cure to cancer. If at the end of the day, all you did was take your power back from fear; if all you did was add one more person to the planet who is not willing to give in to helplessness and hopelessness and throw in the towel; if all you did was reinforce the groundswell of commitment to the power of focused, recognized and fully realized Love, what would that be worth to you? The truth is you cannot make other people get on the life raft of awareness that sets one free. You can only get on it yourself and stay on it. The choice is yours. Are you going to add to the mob mentality of drowning in a sea of chaos and fear worshiping? Or are you going to change the tide and be one more person who makes it to the Shore of Enlightenment?
