“The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.” – Oprah Winfrey
It is said one sees the world as one is; so then, it is to follow, as one changes one’s self, one changes the world. If you want to change the world, change yourself, specifically your perception of yourself and the world around you. The change does not occur with a shift of the mind’s perspective but rather with or through a shift from the mind’s perspective to the heart’s perspective. Where the mind sees fear, the heart sees love, hope and unity.
The way to start is to examine your own thoughts and feelings and the connection between them and your physical body. If you look closely you will find a correlation between them; the body is a bell-weather for the mind. The same can be said for the emotional, mental and spiritual bodies as well. We have our own system of checks and balances built in. These reside within the Heart and can be accessed whenever needed.
If you have lost hope, do not have to give up. Concentrate on despair and see how your four bodies mentioned above react. Then concentrate on hope and weigh these reactions against those of despair. The difference is astounding. Try this to see the changes within yourself. If you can maintain this positive perspective, you will then start to see it reflected in the world around you.
