The world needs Change. There is no question about that. The “Whys” are obvious and numerous. We can argue back and forth about the “What” since people’s values and priorities may differ based on their quality of life. But the million dollar question that keeps politicians, activists and anyone who truly cares about the state of our planet up at night is “How?” HOW do we affect change? HOW do we implement change of any real substance or staying power (longevity.) To quote The Beatles: “You say you want a Revolution? Well you know, we all want to change the world.”
A Revolution does not have to be marked by chaos, violence and power. Silence can be Revolutionary. Love can be Revolutionary. Spirituality can be Revolutionary. We must find peaceful, non-violent means to revolutionize and change things in this world, to change the status quo so as to improve life conditions for anyone living a sub-standard life (i.e. homeless, poverty, no medical care, unemployment, no clean water, hunger etc.) as well as ensure the humane treatment of all God’s creatures, man or animal. Remember, the Change Begins With Me and You. An internal revolution of thought and spirit must take place within each one of us before we can make any significant changes affecting the outside world. Each of us operates at a state of consciousness, awakened by our stage of spiritual evolution at the time. Although many of humanity live their life unconsciously most of the time, we, as members of the human race, as human beings, are surely evolving as both enlightened individuals and as a collective consciousness on Earth. Our inner transformation is reflected in the world we live in, through our thoughts, ideas, words, and actions that represent our unity of purpose on a spiritual as well as a global level. The Revolution has begun…get with the program and be a part of One Love - One World. WE are surely the Ones We Have Been Waiting For…

“Pause, Breathe, Witness. Be the silent, objective observer–watch and listen–pause in the gaps between thoughts, words, sounds.” ~ Lisa Pearlman #PearlsOfZen
Interestingly enough, after tweeting this “Pearl of Zen” today, I stumbled upon a random blog post that expressed the same truth…reposting it below…

“Only the inner silence is yours.
No-one gave it to you.
You were born with it and you will die with it
Thoughts have been given to you;
You have been conditioned to them.”
As I bathe in solitude, alone in the vastness of nature, a feeling of serenity washes over me. With every cleansing breath, I move further away from Self and settle deeper into a peaceful silence. The truth and all knowingness, the essence of pure consciousness, is all that remains. © Lisa Pearlman 4/8/12
