If you had your wish, how would you change the world? Would you remove nuclear weapons from the face of the earth? Save the polar bears? End racism? Fix Donald Trump's hair?
Whatever it is, if you look closely enough, you’ll see that the changes you’re after are material symbols for something beyond form—a subjective state of being. With all of our bickering and power struggles we humans all have the exact same underlying goal:
We want to be happy.
The infinity of forms that this shared goal can take is staggering, but the underlying agenda s universal. All seeking, without exception, is meant to take us to the inner utopia of unbridled exuberance. This is the only goal that any human being has ever truly sought.
Once we accept that our ambitions are but a symbol, we experience ourselves—and our species—as the butt of a tremendous cosmic joke. We’ve been seeking in the external world for something that doesn’t even exist. In fact, most of our seemingly ‘noble’ seeking is secretly guided by a not-so-noble quest to appear morally superior. We have concluded that happiness would consist in our ‘specialness’ and we have cleverly hidden this from ourselves with the sunshine-happy spin of altruistic jargon.
Here's the bad news most aspiring change advocates dare not admit:
Seeking to improve the world is a futile game built upon a lie.
Now for the good news: the sooner we realize this, the sooner we release our agenda to become a reflection for that timeless truths beyond all agendas. Then change happens effortlessly.
The best kept secret of visionary minds is a mind-blowing paradox that lives at the very heart of the human condition:
We don’t change people and circumstances by trying to make them better.
We change them by witnessing their inherent perfection.
The sooner we realize this and release our misguided agenda, the sooner we can become a reflection for that part of us beyond all agendas. And when we start to reflect this type of awesome energy, we are effortlessly inspiring. We radiate with a sense of possibility that automatically reminds everyone around us of their own unbounded nature.
Most people don’t yet have a mental framework for understanding this process, but everyone instinctively gets it. The hidden truth that all great visionaries understand is that we don’t change people and circumstances by trying to make them better, we change them by witnessing their inherent perfection.
Perhaps the ultimate irony is that the people who actually do ignite massive transformations in this world are the ones who have given up seeking altogether.
Sure, they still play the games of form. They have jobs, raise children, pay taxes, deliver speeches, and sometimes even cause a major ruckus in the middle of town square, but they have detached from the whole material world in a fundamental way. They have come to see that to overly identify with material forms is to relinquish their true power.
