“The world is full of people attempting to find solutions to community and planetary problems with little success and much struggle, because they are not fully confronting deeper levels of the issues…if we try to “fix” things outside ourselves without healing the underlying causes of the problem in our own consciousness, we simply perpetuate the problem. Visualizing world peace or anything else will only be effective if we are willing to do the personal consciousness work that will support it.

Everyone on the planet who is involved in a personal growth process is part of an important stage in our evolution, one that could be called the “healing generation.” It is our destiny to do a tremendous amount of inner work so that the generations that follow us will not have so much healing to do, and can get on with whatever work they come here to accomplish! For many of us, it may very well be that the inner work we do will be our greatest contribution to humanity.

Everything we think, feel, say, and do has some effect on other people and the world around us. Therefore, the most powerful and important thing we can do to change the world is simply to do our best to live a conscious life on a daily basis.

Many of the things we are guided to do in our lives may not seem to have a direct connection with helping anyone or healing the world. Remember that the greatest contribution that you can make is in the aliveness that comes from simply being yourself, living your truth, and doing what you love. The passionate expression of who we are will heal the world.

We need to follow not just what our heads tell us are appropriate actions, but what we feel in our guts. We need to be asking what it is that enlivens, empowers, excites us, turns us on, makes us genuinely feel satisfied and fulfilled. That’s what actually heals us, and heals the world.

What really transforms is the life force moving through us. When you are in touch with your inner truth and you walk into a room, you may have an impact on the lives of everyone there simply because you have so much life force moving through you. You need not even say or do anything, other than simply be there. On some level, conscious or unconscious, people feel this and are affected by it. It stimulates their own life energy and begins to trigger change and growth for them. It may catalyze some type of healing crisis in their lives. And so they experience growth as a result, and you have contributed to the healing of this planet, probably without even knowing it.”
