A step backward...
Sometimes we, individually or as a group, make mistakes or get off-course. These steps backwards are inevitable. How quickly we recover is in our hands. It is our responsibility to course-correct.
I am reminded of the "be the change you want to see in the world" quote, often attributed to Gandhi. Although this encapsulates his intention, the actual quote is this:
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi
May we all continue on in peace, love, compassion, understanding, and acceptance, and may this harmonize our world.
Spread the 'Love.
