We see, hear, and read about so much suffering in the world that we can find ourselves feeling overwhelmed and helpless. Perhaps we take up a noble cause to feel like we’re doing something helpful. Injustice can lead to anger, which can propel us into action.
We must also not underestimate the power of modeling how we would like our world to be. When each of us is doing our own part—paying attention, being kind, moving from power and integrity—we make a difference with everyone we encounter.
In mindful presence,
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples.
