Changing the world!



There are hundreds and thousands of campaigns all around the world, working to change the world. To change it for the better. In my opinion, they cannot change the world. They cannot change an inch of the world because all change derives itself from wills of wills. If we change ourselves, we can see the change. It is the essence of ‘Be the change you want to see in this world’.

Communication gaps will evaporate once we synchronize our hearts. Once we change what is within. Quran says:

“Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.”

[13:11 Translation from Sahih International]

Is there something missing in those campaigns then? Yes, there is missing realism, honesty, and sincerity. If they were from the core of the heart I don’t think anything can stop them from seeing the change they want to see. It is true to every religious, environmental, economic and social change that the world wants to see. I pray and hope that we focus on the change required in ourselves. In our behaviors, and in our attitudes, somewhere, something is missing. We have to work on that. This universal change comes from within and from within all the fountains of peace, happiness and harmony sprout.

I do not believe that civilizations have to die because civilization is not an organism. It is a product of wills.
Arnold J. Toynbee

  1. We thought we could do this in 1968 but here we are and nothing’s better. I think all of us in any generation have been disempowered and even in democracies the fight to vote is an illusion of participation. Thanks visit my blog.

  2. Every time I hear someone say “Change the world!” I have an immediate reaction to hear the Michael Jackson tune in my head, “Man in the Mirror”.

    “If you wanna make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself and make a change…”
