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…

My dear friends,
I just wrote a daily affirmation for myself. Feel free to use it in your daily practice if it appeals to you!
Love & Light to all … Namasté … Lisa
Affirmation: I NOTICE THE LIGHT IN EVERYONE
How many of us are quick to criticize or find fault with ourselves or with others? How many of us notice weakness before we notice strength? Perhaps, you are already attuned to the innate goodness in some people… How about making it a habit to see the light that shines within our enemies, as well as within people we admire or like?
We all need to feel we matter and are appreciated (that is human nature as well as being innate in certain species of animal) and when we show our appreciation of and to others, it is often reciprocated. This is a good daily practice because we tend to get caught up in our expectations for ourselves and others, noticing and pointing out our own or others’ failings or weaknesses instead of focusing on the positive qualities or strengths. Everyone does something well and has some positive qualities. Approval and positive feedback motivate people to repeat those positive behaviors, much more than disapproval and negative feedback deter negative behavior. If we think about how good it feels to be complimented, maybe we can set a daily goal of giving a compliment to each person we encounter. Even people who we see as negative… surely you can find one positive thing in even the most frustrating of people. God certainly would! Remember we were all created by God, and in God’s image. Surely that counts for something!

Ahhhhh Serenity Now… the quiet solitude and pure beauty of God’s glorious creations never ceases to amaze me… It nearly takes my breath away and brings me to tears as I gaze upon the newness of this grand design … Such divine beauty is humbling as I virtually kneel before the source of my inspiration … this timeless landscape merged with infinite skies … united in harmony enveloping all that is, was, and ever will be…
