How I Changed The World

There is no substitute for direct personal application. Information or knowledge will not change your life. Wishful thinking or daydreaming will not change your life. It is in the application of knowledge that power is secured and exercised.

Almost all people want to change the world. Some want to change the whole world; some only want to change their own personal environment. Anytime you want more out of life, you are expressing your desire to change the world, at least your little comer of it.

If you want to change your world, you must first change yourself. How? By changing the way you think.

People everywhere are clamoring for more. All want to have more of what life has to offer. It is, however, first necessary to become more. Becoming more is accomplished by asserting your will in harmony with infinite potentiality; by choosing to make the direct personal application; by choosing to change who you are.

Nothing in the universe is stagnant. It is either expanding or contracting. Life is not static either. It is either in the process of becoming or in the process of dying. Scientists use the term entropy to describe the tendency of all things to come to an end. When something is actively becoming more, they say it is anti-entropic. Another way to express this is to say that nothing ever stays the same.

It is impossible for you to stay the same. You are either enhancing yourself or you are in the process of degrading yourself. If you do not consciously take control of your personal power to choose and create your own destiny, then you have given up to the process of death and degradation, to entropy.

It is the choice between being a creator of the circumstances of your life and being just another creature of circumstance. It is the choice between power and impotence. It is the choice between being self-actualized or being a victim.

Victims complain about the hand that life has dealt them; self-actualized individuals figure out how to deal from their own deck. Victims focus their attention on externals in the world without and complain about the wounds that the world is inflicting on them; self-actualized individuals focus their attention on themselves and the world within, and then, go about making their mark on the world.

Those who are stuck in the condition of being creatures of circumstance ramble on about the need to change the world; those who have decided to become creators of circumstance enter into the silence of their own potentiality and focus on changing themselves.

And what is found is, that when you focus on changing yourself, the world automatically changes along with you. The world without is the reflection of the world within.

Take charge of who you are becoming. Change your method of thinking by conscious choice. Change your subconscious programming by consciously chosen repeated affirmation. Change your view of life by concentrated creative visualization.

It is really as simple as becoming proactive instead of being reactive. Connect with who you are, with spirit, with universal consciousness. Go within. Enter into the silence. Visualize that which you desire. Believe that you already have the thing thought of. Be grateful.

This is the direct personal application that leads to the claiming of and the exercise of your own true power.
