In what ways do you personally seek to "be the change you wish to see in the world?"?
I’ve recently been through a pretty tough spot in my life…and in going through what I have, I’ve learned that those things which I placed so much purpose and meaning in were ultimately faulty. A significant other, in my case, is never going to bring me happiness and fulfillment.
Something that might is a life dedicated to living selflessly and compassionately, at least as much as is possible. Because if there’s anything I would like to do with however much time I have left in this world…let’s face it, I’d like to change it for the better. Even if its in small ways that are imperceptible to the masses.
So I’ve been thinking about that bogus Gandhi quote that reminds us all to “be the change we wish to see in the world.” I’m aware that Gandhi never said that exactly…but it makes for a nice jumping-off point.
How do you personally seek to live more selflessly and compassionately?
There’s always the possibility that you don’t care one bit about living that way, I know. But that’s why this question is in General. Hehe.
