Changing the world

So you see what's good and what's not. And if you have a decent head on your shoulder you see at least a dozen improvements required. However, all too often these changes are too big for you to effect on your own. Or the system is so corrupt that any attempt to make a differnce will be squashed mercilessly. So how do you change?

Start small. Change your immediate surroundings. Hope that inspires somneone to change something more. Soon hopefully you will have a domino effect running through and making a difference to a lot more things in a lot of different ways than you set out to change the world int he first place.

Will this really work you ask? You neevr know what will work and what won't? Being told aggression is th eonly way to attain your goals and then doing it finally through complete non-violence(reference the struggle for Indian Independance) is a classic example of this. it's definitely not going to be as easy as if you were able to take complete charge of the whole world and force everything you want down its throat. You may not see the change in your lifetime. But it will happen eventually. You will influence a handful of people who will influence another handful and it will go on and hopefully by the end of it things will fall into place. You may not get the credit for it. But credit's not required here. What's required is that it worked because that's what you set out to do in the first place.
