The Only Person You Have The Power To Change Is Yourself!

There's a hilarious scene in the movie "Big Fat Greek Wedding" where the main character, Toula, her mother and her aunt try to convince her father to allow Toula to work at her aunt's travel agency. Because it is a very male dominated culture, they must convince the father it is his idea to have Toula work at the travel agency. To do this, they invent a problem where the logical solution is to have Toula work at the travel agency.
Manipulation is common in our society. We operate under the false belief that others can be convinced what we believe is "right" is truth and accept it. Sometimes our charasmatic appeals are listened to. At other times we use coercion or manipulation to get our way. The thing is, others rarely change because of anything we do. The fact of the matter is, we cannot change the energy of others through superior argument, manipulation or coercion--at least not in the long term. True change requires a shift in consciousness/energy, and that can only take place inside the person.

Think about the times you have experienced big shifts in your life. Were these changes the result of anything another person did or said, or was it because you observed something new and had to change your belief to fit the new information? True and lasting change is the result of shifting consciousness, and this is something that can only occur inside yourself.

How can we use this observation to change the world? The answer is to become a better you! It is up to each and every one of us to BE the change we want to see in the world. If you want to see more peace in the world, you have to BEcome peace. If you want to see more love in the world, you have to BEcome love. Change occurs in others when they observe something and understand that is either what they want or what they want to avoid. It all has to do with energy/frequency. How you BE in the world matters!

Live your life is such a way that your focus is on improving yourself. As you solve your own problems and become better, the people around you will take notice. Chances are they will want many of those same changes for themselves. At the point they ask about what you have done, go ahead and share. They will then be open and will more readily make the changes they need to take to improve themselves. It is not a quick process, but it is a lasting one.
