the change you want to see in the world -Gandhi. One of the most
misunderstood quotes of our time. Gandhi didn't mean to do nothing to
change the world but sit on your arse. He implied that first you must
work on yourself, then when you yourself have changed, you can then
effect the world positively, not by sitting about meditating, but by the
art of 'doing'. Gandhi travelled far and wide, did so much work
spreading his teachings. He was 'doing', follow his
example and change yourself first, then set about 'doing' something
about the mess the world is in.
The New Age Movement tells people constantly that 'We are all one' and that we have to do nothing but sit meditating to save the Earth and ourselves.
We might all come from the
same source, but we are not all one. If we become trapped within our own
false egos we return to the source as a thousand pieces, and yes become
part of the whole 'one' again. The idea is to grown up and realise we are
responsible for ourselves.
They also tell us to think with the heart and not the mind. Your Higher Self is the thing
you should be thinking with, as well as having an open heart chakra. If
you open your heart chakra without connecting to your Higher Self you
are taken in by these things that trap you here in the 'one' and are easier for the eagles to manipulate and control you. Do not stop at the heart chakra, you must push forwards and active your other higher chakras fully too, your throat, your third eye and your crown, otherwise you are not complete.
We can only true help others
reach their full potential once we have ourselves, because then we can
detach and see the big picture. The New Age Movement tries to stop
people realising their full potential by telling us we are all one, no need to become whole ourselves. This means we never grown up.
