World transformation through self-transformation

Brahmakumar Nikunj, May 13, 2013, DHNS:

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. This quote by Mahatma Gandhi is important to bring about social change in today’s scenario, where everyone is impatiently waiting for someone to first change and then think about changing themselves.

It’s quite tragic though that all of us want to stand last in the process of change, but expect others to be first. Change or transformation is a natural process. We are all changing every moment, but how can we give a direction to our change towards the desired goal is the real challenge for us, because each one of us wants inner harmony and better interpersonal relations in order to live a peaceful life. But nobody really knows as to how this process starts.

There is a proverb that says, “As you think, so shall you become.” The process, therefore, starts from transformation in thinking which in turn brings change in our outlook and level of consciousness, which further makes us react to situations in a different way.

As a result of this, our relationship with others improves and there is mutual love which gives us happiness in return, strengthening our belief in spiritual values and empowering us to sustain all the hurdles that come in our way of self-transformation.

Transformation in thoughts unavoidably brings transformation in our speech and actions. We become a changed personality with a benign kind of royalty which has its basis in purity. Our nature becomes peaceful. Where there was fear before, there will be self-confidence and where there was feeling of vengeance or jealousy or hatred, there will be emotion of love and motive of service and of doing good to others. “Be good and do good” would become the motto of our life. We would rise above body consciousness and stabilise ourselves at a higher and holier level of soul consciousness.

So, what are you waiting for? Just embark on the magical journey of ‘self-transformation’ to bring ‘world transformation.’
