One of the most powerful, and deeply spiritual, ways to work for social change is for us to take action in the present that embodies — right now — the future vision that we seek. ~ Rabbi Arthur Ocean Waskow
Our future vision is our personal vision that begins to manifest once we learn how to use our three eyes: the two eyes with which we see the physical world, and our mind’s eye which allows us to project far beyond now.
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” ―Albert Einstein
It’s important to make clear goals for our future, and then to embrace those goals with all of our being, and take responsibility for achieving those goals. We should choose goals that are in line with our talents and that help the larger community. There are people in need of help all around us. Taking the time to help them connects us with another person, at least for a moment. A hug, a kind word, spending time, little kindnesses, being friendly, it all matters and can make a difference.
We should take the time to teach others a skill we know. It will help improve the life of another and will make you feel better about yourself. If someone has helped us, we should show appreciation. If people around us are sad, depressed or angry, maybe they need someone to listen to them. It’s important to volunteer our time and our talents. It is one of the most amazing things we can do to help this world be a better place. We can each make the world a better place, one small step at a time.
The universe wants you to succeed and will guide you if you just ask.
