There was once a booklet I have printed written with several inspirational and motivational content. I can’t remember anymore of who the author was.
I was inspired and motivated by one of the writings on the booklet so I jot it down. I was curious enough about who the real author was so I searched it on the internet hoping for sure that I will have an answer.
Fortunately there was. The internet will always have this in every inspirational website.
According to the internet it was written on a tomb of an Anglo-Saxon Bishop in the crypts of Westminster Abbey.
I will quote those lines here verbatim but I will give first my own insights so as not violate read.cash rules.
There are times when we are alone thinking about the world we live in, we come to think of changing the world which is very impossible but could possibly maybe.
Sometimes we always think of the entirety of what we can do to change it but forget to think of what we can do first with ourselves.
It’s more like we cannot discipline people from the entire planet without practicing it to yourself first, then your siblings and family will do the same and most probably the neighborhood and the entire community will be disciplined enough.
Same as with viruses, what if love would be spreading like a virus. Love will start within us then sharing it to our family, friends, neighbors, community and neighboring countries.
If we want to change the world, we should set ourselves as an example. It will always start from ourselves.
I also dreamed of changing the world, but I don’t know what kind of change I will be doing. Perhaps if I have a place to stand I will move the world.
But why do we want to change the world, what are your purpose and reason for doing so?
Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I say to myself, all these years, what were the changes I made? Am I the same person when I was still free? As I see myself now with my own family setting myself as a good example for my kids somehow made me think that I can change the world.
