BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, September 8th, 2014 by Shakti Gawain in THE PATH OF TRANSFORMATION

“How DO we create real change in our personal lives and in the world? The simple answer to this question is this: We change the world most effectively by changing our own consciousness. There is a quote attributed to Mohandas Gandhi that says this well, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

As each of us becomes more aware on an individual level, we change reflected in our personal lives. Old problems and patterns gradually melt away and we meet new difficulties and new challenges with a widening perspective and increasing wisdom. Our lives become more balanced, more fulfilling and more in alignment with our soul’s purpose. Since each one of us is an integral part of the collective consciousness, we each have a subtle but powerful effect on that mass consciousness (and vice versa).

Like the proverbial pebble dropped into a still pond, the shifts of consciousness we make in our personal lives send out tiny but important waves that ripple over the surface of the whole.”
