to change the world



I wanted to change the world, all of it

where was I to start? perhaps my town

that seemed too large, maybe my street?

I know that best, but better think down

from that, and you know I may not be smart

but I’ve had a thought, I’ve been a clown

all I can change is what’s in my heart


Do you want to change the world?  Then change yourself first.  Do you want to change yourself?  Then remain completely silent inside the silence-sea.  ~  Sri Chinmoy

  1. Something we all need to think about. Rather like, ‘clean your own house before you start on somebody else’s’.
