So, there you are: Prime Mover of the Universe.
At least, you are the Prime Mover of Your Universe, while everyone else is the Prime Mover of Their Universe.
Know you not, that you are gods?
You have the unique, awesome, and only power to change yourself, and by changing yourself, you have that same unique, awesome, and only power to change the world.
People, especially young people, who come to me eager to change the world (and expecting that I will have all the answers to do that) are disappointed when I say to them, “You have to change yourself first, before you can change the world.”
They should be encouraged, instead.
I am telling them that they have the power all by themselves. Already. They don’t have to ask anyone’s permission. They don’t have to wait for some unknown starting bell. They are right here, right now, in command.
We all are.
All they have to do is change their mindset. Take another point of view. Each one of us is fully competent and able to change the whole world and we have plenty of evidence that this is true.
Stay on point with the power to change and how you make change happen. So I will say it again:
If you want to change the world, you first have to change yourself.
You have to stop thinking that you are powerless, or that the power to change things exists somewhere else, in someone else’s hands.
Instead, the power and the responsibility that goes with it, is yours — and it always has been.
Me? — you may be squeaking at this moment, like a small, startled mouse. “Me? You think I have the power to change the world?”
Yes, that is precisely what I am telling you.
You have the power to change the world, and in a way, you are the only one who does, because what other people think and do and choose is up to them.
So, if anything at all is going to change, someone has to get up and change it.
And if you don’t like the way things are, the only one standing here is you.
